The King's Justice
The King's Justice - Susan Elia MacNeal
Now is the perfect time to escape into a book. I just happened to escape into the latest installment of one of my favorite series. Maggie is back once again and this time diffusing bombs (is there anything she can't do?). Unfortunately for her she might be dragged into the middle of another serial killer that is terrorizing London.

I didn't really enjoy how angry Maggie was in this book. I understand her anger at everything that has happened but I feel like she wasn't getting her emotions out properly. I'm hoping that as the series continues she will be able to get back some of her hope and work through some of these difficult emotions.

I really look forward to reading more in this series. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Review: Three For All by Elia Winters
Three For All - Elia Winters

Reviewed for Wit and Sin


You’re not going to need to turn the heater on this winter because Three For All is hot as hell. Elia Winters’s third Comes in Threes story is a deliciously dirty polyam romance with a core of emotional honesty that makes it stand out.

Geoff and Patrick have been married almost seven years and their love and marriage is as solid as can be. They don’t talk much about Patrick’s polyamorous past anymore and Geoff has no doubt that Patrick is completely faithful. That doesn’t stop him from wondering if perhaps Patrick might want more…and if maybe he does as well. The chief reason for Geoff’s unquiet? His co-worker, Lori, who is not only intelligent and gorgeous, but shares a lot of common interests with both Geoff and Patrick. One of the things I love most about Three For All is Patrick and Geoff’s marriage. They have their bumps, uncertainties, and vulnerabilities, but they always talk to one another and there’s never any judgment. They are so solid they know they can be open and vulnerable to one another and it makes their love story that much stronger and more interesting.

With the ink still drying on her PhD, Lori has her eye on the prize. She’s going to leave Mapleton and move to New York City to pursue her dream of working as a relationship therapist, hopefully with an organization that supports people of color, LGBTQ people, and nontraditional relationships. She did her dissertation on polyamory and is intrigued when she realizes Goeff and Patrick are interested in inviting her to bed. What none of them count on is how quickly they start to fall for each other and fall into a triad relationship. Lori fears being the third wheel, but it’s clear she’s made for Patrick and Geoff. She’s also a fantastic heroine who is funny, interesting, and refreshingly self-aware.

Whether they get together in twos or threes, Patrick, Geoff, and Lori are insanely hot. Sweetly submissive Patrick just about melted my heart, Geoff – who can be uncertain in some areas of his changing feelings – is confidently dominant, and Lori isn’t afraid to go for what she wants in the bedroom. Put them all together and you’re in for one hell of a ride. And while I cannot overstate how sexy Three For All is, it’s the characters themselves who make this story shine. They talk about polyamory, they learn, the guys become friends with Lori even as they fall for her and she for them. There’s no false drama, only honest emotion and very human fears and needs. There’s so much to love about this book and the way it discusses polyamorous relationships that I’ve barely touched on what readers will find.

Elia Winters writes polyam romance better than anyone else I’ve ever read and Three For All shows why. It’s erotic, sex-positive, funny, heartwarming, engaging, and just plain fun to read. Patrick, Lori, and Geoff are all unique, well-drawn characters who fit each other perfectly and I loved watching them become a family. So if you’re looking for a kinky good time that also has emotional depth, Three For All is the perfect book for you.

Pre-Party Prompts - Day 6 Favorite Seasonal Covers
Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal
Princess Elizabeth's Spy - Susan Elia MacNeal
Brighton Belle (A Mirabelle Bevan Mystery) - Sara Sheridan
The Ballad of Black Tom - Victor LaValle
DC Comics: Bombshells Vol. 1: Enlisted - Marguerite Bennett
Death in the Air: The True Story of a Serial Killer, the Great London Smog, and the Strangling of a City - Kate Winkler Dawson
Witches' Brew - Morgana Best



Rather than go spooky or gory, I went vintage fashion (Brighton Belle) plus a background that is less fashion and a bit more gritty (Mr. Churchill's Secretary, Princess Elizabeth's Spy, and Death in the Air). I love the AU version of Wonder Woman as Rosie the Riveter. The last two covers are for the upcoming bingo (the true crime square and a square to be named later). The last cover screams autumn and I love it.
