Rescued by the Forbidden Rake - Mary Brendan

Faye Shawcross is trying to bring up her siblings and hoping that her fiance will continue to wait (while he signals his dodgyness by demanding that she lose the brats before he will be willing to marry). She lost some of her inheritance by bad investments (suggested by said fiance too). She entangles herself with the rougish Ryan Kavanagh who helps her when her sister gets herself in potential trouble. Ryan troubles her and intrigues her and he wants her but she wants stability and propriety and he doesn't offer this, but he does offer an affair at first and then he realises that he wants her in his life.

It was a fun read with some fun characters.

Magic and Mystery
The Forbidden Harbour Vol 1 - Stefano Turconi,Teresa Radic

 Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley

Perhaps it is the power of the ocean itself that lends itself to mysterious tales. The Forbidden Harbour make use of Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Marnier, but simply to call it a mystery gothic comic is misleading. 

At first glance, the story seems simple enough – the adventures of a young shipwrecked boy as he is returned to civilization and is taken in by three sisters. But that isn’t quite correct. In many ways, the magical story is about faith, responsibility, and regret.

But honesty, the real winning part of this book is impossible to be discussed without spoilers, so here’s your last warning.

Radice gets huge points for her depiction of attempted rape because the man who tries to rape one of the sisters is a good man. His impetuous to force comes simply because of the sisters does not want to marry him because she doesn’t love him. Considering how hard it is for society to accept that nice guys don’t rape (i.e. Brock Turner), Radice use of it here is very powerful.

I can’t thank her enough for that.

New Release Review! Forbidden (House of Sin #1) Elizabeth Naughton!
Forbidden - Elisabeth Naughton

 

 

From New York Times Bestselling and RITA Award-winning author Elisabeth Naughton, the first book in the House of Sin Series.

She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin...

He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist. 

I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.

I know he is a threat. He's entwined in a dangerous world I don't understand. But even that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.

Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.

I need to discover what he's hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin...

**WARNING!**
This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Features a mysterious hero with a dangerous secret. This is a big story that can't be told in only one book so there is a cliffhanger - but never fear, book two releases three weeks later. The release schedule is as follows:

Books in the House of Sin Series:
FORBIDDEN -- Book 1 -- April 24, 2018
DECEIVED -- Book 2 -- May 15, 2018
UNDONE -- Book 3 - June 5, 2018

 

 

First, let me tell you that this story definitely has a cliffhanger and it is my understanding that it will take 3 books for the author to tell readers the whole story. That being said, let’s get to the review of the first House of Sin story - Forbidden:

 

Elizabeth Naughton always creates wonderful characters full of depth and characteristics that ensure that readers really want to get to know them and learn their stories, so you can be sure that while this book is different from her other paranormal or romantic suspense stories, the characters will captivate you from the very beginning and hold you hostage until the end. There is wonderful electrifying chemistry between the hero and heroine and the story if full of anticipation building suspense that keeps readers engaged and on the edge of their seats with twists and turns to keep them guessing.

 

Although, I must say that I found Forbidden to be a bit on the slow side in regards to the pace of the story, the House of Sin serial is off to a great start as I was completely caught up in the events taking place and getting to know the characters, so I am definitley looking forward to reading the rest of the story, luckily the release schedule means I don’t have to wait too long in between the three parts, so until next time….

 

 

 

Forbidden is the 1st book in the House of Sin series.

 

The 2nd book - Deceived will be available on May 15, 2018.

 

Forbidden is available in ebook at:

Amazon   iBooks   B&N   Kobo

 

Elisabeth Naughton can be found at:

Website   Goodreads   Facebook    Twitter   BookBub   InstaGram   Amazon

Great Book and Great Characters
Forbidden - Elisabeth Naughton

Natalie’s best friend was recently found dead in a way that was too suspicion for her so she headed to New York to find the answers to her friend’s death. She didn’t count on the forbidden temptation of Luc.

This was a great story. Lots of steamy parts wrapped into the mystery that Natalie is trying to solve. I really loved Natalie’s determination.to find the answers. The author keeps you guessing at every turn. I can’t wait until the next installment! I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Review: Wrong to Need You
Wrong to Need You: Forbidden Hearts - Alisha Rai

This sequel to Hate to Want You is a wonderful, exhilarating read about a woman struggling to get by reconnecting with a childhood friend who skipped town a decade ago.

 

I adored this novel. I loved the heroine's at odds, but still involved in family relationships. I loved the hero's quiet competence and patience. It also doesn't hurt that she's a cocktail nerd who likes sex or that, while baby sitting, he explains Japanese internment camps in America to her kid. Or that these were my favorite two characters from the previous book.

 

Excellent, satisfying.

 

The only downside is that I'm not interested in either of the leads for book 3.
