This is a short story from the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.  This is a fantasy story that seemed historical when I first started reading, until I realized Kennet was reading the newspaper, so not as medieval as I thought.  Kennet’s best friend is Brennar, who also happens to be Kennet’s secret love. Brennar is the heir to an estate, and to add to his gloriousness, he is chosen as the … Continue reading

This is a super short revisit to Cassidy and Malcolm, the incredibly lovely couple from Missing Butterfly.  I wish wish wish this had been longer, because it was so great to revisit these guys.

In this little vignette, a slimebag musician named Beckett has engineered a photo op for paparazzi at a charity event;  he shoves his tongue down Cassidy’s throat while cameras click.  He does it for publicity, not … Continue reading

Paula Quinn – Ravished by a Highlander (Children of the Mist #1)

Author: Paula Quinn

Publisher: Forever
Genre: M/F Historical
ISBN 13: 9780446569606

Some historical romance stories give a glancing view of the historical part, focusing on the romance, which then feels more like a contemporary with some language variations.  This offering by Paula Quinn is not one of those stories.  There is a great deal of historical detail here, political explanations and back-story.  There is a large power struggle between Catholics and Protestants in the year 1685.  Davina, the heroine of royal blood, has been sent … Continue reading

It was immensely interesting to see the note in the beginning of the book, which tells us that the book was inspired by a photo taken at a real life Pride parade.  I did go look at the picture first, and it gave me a great visual in my head for the story.

That being said, the story itself is very short, told is alternating POV, starting with Ben, who is jogging … Continue reading

There is something annoying about this book for me and I’m not sure what exactly it was.  I can’t decide if it was the fact that once Julian and Ryan hook up,  Ryan says “Julian” or “Jules” ad nauseum.  That could have been it.  Or, it could have been that the blurb is definitely misleading, in that this is a paranormal book, not a contemporary (which is what I thought it was).   … Continue reading
