For those who have read Burton before, this is not what JC usually dishes up.  This is a little shy on the romance which makes the love scenes between Dante and Anna seemed forced.  JC has always been able to write steamy sex but without the romance it just seemed like sex and not making love.  I am used to more chemistry between Burton’s characters and missed it … Continue reading

I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan – like I have read NONE of the books/stories and I was bored out of my mind when the old Basil Rathbone movies were on WGN Family Classics when I was a kid, so I didn’t go into this with any preconceived notions – which might be good.  Anyway, I sort of know the deal with Holmes and Watson, … Continue reading
