WOLF AND PREJUDICE is here!!! (Finally)

Guys, I know it’s been a long road, but we’ve finally reached the promised book, WOLF AND PREJUDICE, the official-official sequel to HER VIKING WOLF. And let me tell you, I love this book. LOVED Alisha. So much, you don’t even know. I just hope you get as much of a kick out of reading it as I did writing it. I also hope it was worth the wait. In any case, thanks so much for your patience. And, as always, thanks so much for your kind emails, comments, and reviews. Most of all, thanks so much for reading. As I’ve stated before, I started out as a fan of IR, and the amount of support so many of you have given me as a writer is a dream come true. So seriously, thank you for making my dreams come true. You’ll never truly understand how...

THE ULTIMATE MERGER by Delaney Diamond

THE ULTIMATE MERGER by Delaney Diamond

Description: When Brazilian hotelier, Renaldo, and investment banker, Sabrina meet. it’s sizzling chemistry at first sight. But he’s only in the country for a little while. Can they take their relationship from fling status to the ultimate merger? The Good: Ms. Diamond is a very dynamic, consistent, and immediately engaging writer. She keeps her part in the indie author-reader covenant better than most, and her books are always solidly-structured and cleanly-written — she’s on top of her craft. This story is short, sweet, and as of this writing, totally free. THE ULTIMATE MERGER is a great intro to her longer works. The Bad: Though I was satisfied with the A-story romance, it felt like the B story with her addict cousin was given short...

AFTER THE KISS by Violet Williams

AFTER THE KISS by Violet Williams

Description: When Ebony Rivers meets Demetrius Sorventinos, it’s chemistry at first sight. The only problems are she’s already dating the son of his Russian mob boss, Maxhew Kournikova … and “Demetrius” is really an undercover cop named Tony. Oh dear… The Good: This is a very high stakes premise with hot sex and edge-of-your-seat situations. Also, the story is told from the first person POVs of Ebony and Tony/Demetrius, and their voices are written with a strong hand. You’re never confused about who’s doing the talking. Overall, the book was a very compelling read. The Bad: Ebony is very passive and when she does take action it’s often for dubious reasons, with which the reader might not agree. We are given...

BRIAR’S CHAMPION by Mahalia Levey

BRIAR’S CHAMPION by Mahalia Levey

Description: When Briar’s famous boyfriend, not only marries someone else, but also kicks her out of the home they shared together, she thinks she’s done with love for good — that is, until Sloan Gutiérrez walks into her life. The Good: I love a concept that involves a heroine forgetting one man by getting under another. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a hero who just prefers to date black women. The Bad: A great set-up is squandered by rushed and clumsy execution. The love story especially lacks craft: the initial attraction between Briar and Sloan is based purely on each thinking the other is really hot, and then they end up committing super fast for unconvincing reasons. Briar’s personality morphs from plot point to...

SLIGHTLY SINFUL by Yvette Hines

SLIGHTLY SINFUL by Yvette Hines

Description: While waiting to hear back about a lucrative contract, Delilah Reynolds, decides to accept her friend’s invitation to a risqué weekend in the Bahamas. She ends up have the mind-blowing sex experience of a lifetime with a mysterious stranger, but what will happen when they meet again in the real world? The Good: This book was scorching hot with wonderfully naughty situations and sex. Not for the faint-of-heart reader. This isn’t your walks-on-the-beach sort of book. Whoo, boy! The Bad: The resolution comes a bit too quickly, squandering much of the great conflict that’s been built up. Also, the last sex scene feels more like a one more scene, than a culmination or even a confirmation of love. The Naughty: Erotic. Multiple partners....
