The Art of Fire by Kirby Crow - My Thoughts
The Art of Fire - Kirby Crow

I always enjoy a Kirby Crow story and this was no different.  The story of  Marik, the disgraced soldier and Grey, the much younger recruit sent to second him in his lonely outpost is short - novella length - never my favourite, but I loved it anyway.  It's Kirby's writing!

Both men have secrets.  There are some magical powers.  There is a lovely sex scene and a few expressions of affection.  There is danger, a bit of intrigue and a tease of things going on in the wider world. There's even some fun banter.

All in all, it was a very enjoyable read that while being complete in and of itself, left me wanting to know more about these two characters and the wider world in which they live.  And, oh, I did love Marik very much.  :)

DNF The Wicked Vampire
The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire series) - Kate Baxter

It’s bern nearly two months since I last picked this book up and current have no desire to finish it. While there are some deliciously steamy sex scenes the plot seems repetitive in the I love you but I hate you theme. It’s not badly written or anything it’s just not doing anything for me personally right now.

Thank you Netgalley and St Martin’s Press for the review copy.

When The Conqueror Meets the Sorceress, It's Magic

The Midwinter Mail-Order Bride (Mail-Order Brides, #4)The Midwinter Mail-Order Bride by Kati Wilde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Is barbarian fantasy romance a thing? Well anyway, this book was amazing! This is the second book by Kati Wilde I have read and I loved it just as much as the first. Kael the Conqueror won his kingdom the hard way, by killing those who enslaved him. Now, his people want him to be married. They've searched far and wide for a bride, but many woman fear him. Princess Anja of Ivermere offers to be his bride (with some ulterior motives), and she's turned down because Kael believes she can't really want him. Anja does, very much, even though she doesn't understand why. As Kael escorts Anja home through the treacherous, ensorcelled Dead Lands, he comes to realize that he doesn't want to let her go.

Anja is badass, gorgeous and very likable. Kael is HOT and strong and has a secret vulnerability in that he wants to be loved for who he is. I rooted for them to be together ever after.

Kati Wilde is excellent at writing sexual tension. And this book capitalizes on its short length by buying up the tension between Anja and Kael. The reader is treated to the couple falling deeply in love, with some good action and creative fantasy and magic along the way. I hope this is a series, because I would love to read more books set in this world.

Gentlemen Prefer Voodoo
Gentlemen Prefer Voodoo (Urban Fantasy Romance) - Angie Fox
Amie is a voodoo practitioner who also owns a voodoo shop. Her mom loved the wrong guys and Amie is adamant she isn't going to make the same mistakes. She breaks down and casts a spell for her to find her "one true love." That spell awakens Dante, who it turns out worked some magic of his own to be able to come back and find his "one true love." 
This was short and sweet. Amie takes some convincing. I thought this worked well as a stand alone.

In a Reading Slump aka Doom Bastion
Magic Burns - Ilona Andrews

Meh. Dark and dreary. Dank and gloomy. Like the Duracell bunny, it kept on going. It felt like it would never end. Suffice it to say, I'm not a fan. What can I say? Julie is sweet, Red is an asshole, Bran is full of himself, Currin likes to play with his food, and by that I mean play games with Kate, Andrea's trapped in a world she doesn't belong in, those 3 oracle witches, Moriggan, Morfran and all other gods are as passive and non-existent as can be. Kate is wasting time and should get laid already ugh.
