Only two more to go...
Optimus Prime #23 - Priscilla Tramontano,John Barber

Then Unicron.  I have a couple issues that I think are not of this continuity and more aligned with the movie, possibly, but not much left.   It's sad, but again, good.   The character development is just top notch, and it goes to show that this was a labor of love; they could have phoned it in because they knew it was ending, and they did not.   Lovely, lovely work here!

Sweet read with danger all around.
Priscilla - Charlene Raddon

This was a sweet read despite all the danger surrounding Wildcat Ridge. Priscilla thought she knew what she wanted after losing her husband. I loved how her generosity and innocence came through, along with the fear as she realized there was more to her world. Braxton was a great guy with his honesty and protectiveness once he met Priscilla. They made a nice couple trying to survive the rough times. I would enjoy visiting Wildcat Ridge again to see how the town regrows.

I received an ARC of this story through Goddessfish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

His Perfect Partner (Matched to Perfection)
His Perfect Partner (Matched to Perfection) - Priscilla Oliveras His Perfect Partner is a sweetheart of a tale with a twist of salsa to flavor it up. Tomas and Yaz are temptation at it's best. Oliveras has written an alluring romace that brings readers into the dance. Heart's are broken, hope is lost, but it's the healing power of love that casts a spell on readers and tangoed it's way into my heart.

Her Perfect Affair
Her Perfect Affair - Priscilla Oliveras How does one live up to their potential, while working to escape the past? There in lies the conundrum of Jeremy Taylor? Behind his charmed life of wealth and privilege lies an inner struggle to distance himself from his demons and become someone he can be proud of. Rosa is the gift he treasures, but may not feel he deserves. It's time for each to step out of their comfort zones and let love in. Her Perfect Affair has temptation with flair. Oliveras is fun, flirty and realistic. A spicy breath of fresh air.

The Proud Sinner by Priscilla Royal
The Proud Sinner - Priscilla Royal The Proud Sinner - Priscilla Royal

I was pleasantly surprised to discover this series was still going. I had heard book #12 was suppose to have been the last. Not only was a thirteenth novel released last year but book #14 is due to be published at some point this year.

 

I wasn't feeling as excited for book #14 by the time I reached the end of 13. Like so many series, I think this one is starting to run dry. This book took a step backwards from what made the previous novels so good. Normally these books are four star reads for me. The lack of focus on the primary characters took this book from four starts to three. 

 

The story surrounding the visiting abbots just didn't work for me. I can only read about how evil women are so many times before I start to get annoyed. I understand that this was the attitude at the time (and even still to some extent) but I don't need to be beat over the head with it. I get it. Women are the reason we were all expelled from Eden. They are all whores who only exist to attempt to drive all men to the Devil. I don't need to be reminded of this every other page.

 

Prioress Eleanor has always had to deal with adversity, whether it be due to her age (at the beginning of the series) or her gender. The manner in which she deals with such adversity is part of what makes these books such good reads. There was none of this Eleanor present in this book. Instead we are presented with a Prioress Eleanor who borders on whiny. 

 

I missed the quick-witted, sassy Sister Anne. While Sister Anne is never really a "primary" character, she is always a welcome addition to any story. She provides a fresh breath and comic relief to a time and setting that can be rather bleak. This Sister Anne was non-existent. 

 

I still appreciated this book for what the previous novels have been, a quick and enjoyable journey into medieval England. I am going to continue on with the series in hopes that the next novel is capable of capturing some of the enchantment of the previous novels.
