Valentina Heart March Author Interview

Questions straight from the Heart (we are burning to know!)

 

  • What is the best book you’ve ever read?
  • Now you’re asking a lot;) I don’t think I can just pick one book and say that’s the best thing ever written. In general I like angsty books, those that make me remember them for a long time after and some of my favorite authors do accomplish that on regular basis. I do like Derekica Snake’s style, the way she abuses her characters until you as a reader can’t take any more and then resolves everything so beautifully you … Continue reading

    Angel Martinez pulled a great sci-fi winner out of her hat with this book.  Isaac Ozawa is a lonely communications officer on the Hermes.  The ship picks up a distress signal from a government ship and heads in to investigate.  What the rescue team finds is something out of a horror movie.  The ship is deserted and there are shredded body parts all over.  One lone survivor is found traumatized in a holding … Continue reading

    Elizabeth Hoyt – To Beguile a Beast (Legend of the Four Soldiers #3)


    Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

    Publisher: Forever
    Genre: M/F Historical
    ISBN 13:  9780446406932

    Oh my, did I love this book.  A clever take on, yes, Beauty and the Beast, it also boasts a wounded hero (grim and terse and just so very lovely) and a not-so-innocent heroine.  It was a refreshing change from the usual historical romance.

    Alistair was a soldier in the war, brave and strong.  When he is critically injured, he comes home and heals, painfully.  He is very scarred (enough … Continue reading

    Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
    Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
    ISBN 13:9781613724194

    I found this to be a nice light romance book set in the Australian Outback.  Caine has a problem with stuttering so is stuck in a dead end job and no boyfriend.  His mother inherits Lang Downs,  a sheep station or ranch in Australia and Caine sees the station as a place to start over and continue his great-uncle’s legacy.  Caine knows nothing about sheep ranching but what he lacks in knowledge … Continue reading

    Gena Showalter – The Vampire’s Bride (Atlantis #4)


    Author: Gena Showalter
    Reviewed by: Lucy
    Publisher: Harlequin
    Genre: M/F Paranormal
    ISBN 13: 9780373773596

    First of all, I really like the way Gena Showalter writes, and her world building.  I can ‘see’ where the characters are, and what their lives are like.  Her characters are richly drawn and complex.  Her stories are complex.  And therein lies some of the problems I had with Vampire’s Bride.

    I like the story, but there is a ton going on.   Layel, who is the Vampire King,  has a … Continue reading

    Genre:
    M/M Contemporary
    ISBN 13: 9781611521658

    This was another engaging book that should not have had to be written.  Unfortunately, homophobia still runs strong in the U.S.  Adam Davis and Brendan Fletcher are both NFL football stars at the top of their careers.  They play for different football teams but manage to find a spark of interest in each other at a post game party.  Both men are closeted and Adam is so much in denial … Continue reading

    Tia Fielding – By Any Other Name

    Author: Tia Fielding
    Reviewed by: Valentina
    Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
    Genre: M/M Contemporary
    ISBN 13: 9781613721407

    Ménages are something I truly enjoy reading about, but those are also some of the stories that are most difficult to write. How do you make it work three-way without giving the impression of distancing one of the characters? Some authors are brilliant when it comes to creating unbreakable emotional ties and making the sexual aspect of their relationship a side thing. I more than found what I … Continue reading
