ARC: Almost A Scandal by Elizabeth Essex

Almost a Scandal (The Reckless Brides, #1)
A Reckless Bride's Novel

Bold, brazen, and beautiful, the Reckless Brides refuse to play by society’s rules of courtship. 
But—come hell or high water—they always get their man…

For generations, the Kents have served proudly with the British Royal Navy. So when her younger brother refuses to report for duty, Sally Kent slips into a uniform and takes his place—at least until he comes to his senses. Boldly climbing aboard the Audacious, Sally is as able-bodied as any sailor there. But one man is making her feel tantalizingly aware of the full-bodied woman beneath her navy blues…

Dedicated to his ship, sworn to his duty—and distractingly gorgeous—Lieutenant David Colyear sees through Sally’s charade, and he’s furious. But he must admit she’s the best midshipman on board—and a woman who tempts him like no other. With his own secrets to hide and his career at stake, Col agrees to keep her on. But can the passion they hide survive the perils of a battle at sea? Soon, their love and devotion will be put to the test…
I gave this book a 4

    
Amazing!  Almost A Scandal is exactly what a reader wants when reading a historical romance.  Essex sets sail in this bold and brazen adventure, surrounding readers with all the faucets of a great romance.  Sally is audacious, taking this story to titillating and temping heights along side the handsome Col, that just happens to be every girl's fantasy of a strong and sexy man.   This exciting adventure at sea is a perfect summer time read, I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Aug 8, 2012


Book 2
Darkest London

Once the seeds of desire are sown . . . 
Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . . 
Their growing passion knows no bounds . . . 
Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul. 

I gave this book a 4
    

Moonglow delves deeper into the secrets hidden in London. Kristen Callihan delights us once again, with this delicious historical laced with paranormal elements. When we meet Daisy and Ian in Firelight, she was a married woman who seemed to be more than we were allowed to witness, and Ian was larger than life, a character that screamed to have his story told. Ms. Callihan has delivered with Moonglow, desires run deep and passions run hot, there is a mystery to be solved as readers are taken on an awakening of the senses. Superb continuation of an extraordinary paranormal historical.

Review: Devilishly Sexy by Kathy Love

Posted on Aug 5, 2012 with 1 comment

Aug 5, 2012

    He couldn't suppress the low growl of satisfaction as he thrust, plunging deep in one smooth stroke, fully, to the hilt.
"God, that feel so good," he groaned, his eyes rolling in their sockets with pure exaltation.
His rough words were answered with a low, desperate moan that filled him with more delight.
It had been far to long. No man should have to go so long without this. This moment of pure ecstasy. And he wasn't too humble to know he was damned good at it. Damned good.
He pulled out, positioning himself again, his fingers tightening around the thick girth in his hand, heavy and hot. A fine shaft, if there ever was one. He couldn't help taking a moment to admire it in his hand. Beautiful. An old, dear friend.
Then he sank it in again with unerring accuracy. Deep to the hilt. And that was all it took.
He remained totally still, allowing himself to feel that moment of total surrender. The shudder, a tiny, almost imperceptible quiver, then complete release.
He stared at the limp body pinned to the wall by his sheer, unrestrained strength. Eyes closed, head flung back, lips parted in a silent cry.
Now that was true beauty.
Finally he pulled out, and before the object of his determined onslaught could start to sag into a boneless, spent heap, he grasped his powerful shank for the very last stroke. The most satisfying of them all.
With a powerful sweep of his arms, he struck and a gush of warm stickiness covered his hands, his forearms. Even his chest and face. He didn't care.
He watched with a strange combination of pleasure and utter dispassion as his target's head disconnected from his body, flying through the air. It rolled across the cracked and oil-stained concrete and came to a wobbling stop under a parked car.

Cindy's Review:   
Yeah...I almost fell over laughing on that one...my dirty little mind was in the gutter the whole time! This is the first 2 pages of Devilishly Sexy and it only gets better from there. Beautiful, sexy Liza McLane is the editor-in-chief for HOTS magazine...she loves what she does, just NOT who she does it for. DEMONS! In order to control her a demon has possession of her and keeps her from having a normal life.
In walks devilishly handsome Michael Archer who works in the mailroom at HOTS...well not really. Surprise, surprise~he's a demon slayer.
When the two of them come together, Liza will do anything to have a relationship with Michael. And Michael will tempt whatever fate has in store for him to be with Liza. What will happen when each discovers what the other does or has had done to them in Liza's case? Well you're just gonna have to read Kathy Love's Devilishly Sexy to find out...They say the Devil wears Prada~in this case "the Devil wears whatever the heck she wants"...
