To Seduce a Sinner by Elzabeth Hoyt

Rating 5 stars!!
CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS

Book Description (from back cover):
THE ONE THING HE CANNOT REVEAL
For years, Melisande Fleming has loved Lord Vale from afar . . . watching him seduce a succession of lovers, and once, catching a glimpse of heartbreaking depths beneath his roguish veneer. When he’s jilted on his wedding day, she boldly offers to be his.
TO THE ONE WOMAN HE MOST DESIRES
Vale gladly weds Melisande, if only to produce an heir. But he’s pleasantly surprised: A shy and proper Lady by day, she’s a wanton at night, giving him her body—though not her heart.
IS HIS DEEPEST NEED . . .
Determined to learn her secrets, this sinner starts to woo his seductive new wife—while hiding the nightmares from his soldiering days in the Colonies that still haunt him. Yet when a deadly betrayal from the past threatens to tear them apart, Lord Vale must bare his soul to the woman he married...or risk losing her forever.

My Thoughts: I want to start off by saying the I loved this book. It has become one of my favorites of the year!! The reason I loved this book so much is because of the hero Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale. I first feel in love the Lord Vale in To Taste Temptation. He is a man that on the outside seems very happy and easy going, but as we get to know him we see that he has a lot of issues from when he fought in the French Indian War in America. He was captured by Indians and forced to watch his soldiers and friends be tortured. One of the issues Vale had once he was back in England was not being able to sleep in a bed. He has to sleep on the floor with his back against a wall. The heroine is Melisande and she has been in love with Vale for six years. When Vale is jilted on his wedding day she boldly asks Vale to marry her and he agrees. Marriages of Convenience is one of my favorite themes especially in historical romances. Melisande finds out about Vale's problem she is very understanding. What I loved is that his problem is not instantly solved because he falls in love with Melisande at the end of the book they are still sleeping on the floor. The mystery of who betrayed the soldiers is still an on going story in this book.
Ms Hoyt has written another steamy and sexy story. You just can't help but fall in love with her characters

I can't wait to read the next book in this series "To Beguile a Beast".



To Taste Temptation by Elizabeth Hoyt

Rating 4.5!!


Book Description (from back cover):
EVEN THE MOST REFINED LADY
Lady Emeline Gordon is the model of sophistication in London’s elite social circles, always fashionable and flawlessly appropriate. As such, she is the perfect chaperone for Rebecca, the young sister of a successful Boston businessman and former Colonial soldier.
CRAVES AN UNTAMED MAN
Samuel Hartley may be wealthy, but his manners are as uncivilized as the American wilderness he was raised in. Who wears moccasins to a grand ball? His arrogant disregard for propriety infuriates Emeline, even as his boldness excites her.
TO RELEASE HER PASSION…
But beneath Samuel’s rakish manner, he is haunted by tragedy. He has come to London to settle a score, not to fall in love. And as desperately as Emeline longs to feel this shameless man’s hands upon her, to taste those same lips he uses to tease her, she must restrain herself. She is not free. But some things are beyond a lady’s control…


My Thoughts: This is my first book by Elizabeth Hoyt. Overall I really enjoyed the book. I thought that the first part of the story was very slow. I know that this book sets up the rest of the series so there was a lot of "world building". I loved the setting of the story. I takes place in London in 1765, but the hero of the story is an American who was a scout for the British in the French and Indian War. The story centers around Sam trying to found out who betrayed their regiment. When he arrives in England Sam meets Emeline. The sparks fly and sexy and steamy relationships develops between Sam and Emeline. Ms Hoyt did such a good job setting up the series that I can't wait to read the rest of this series If you love Lisa Kleypas' historicals you should definitely pick up Ms. Hoyt's books.

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

Rating 4.5!!

Book Description: Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of bad luck. First, her coworker is murdered and no one seems to care Then she's face-to-face with a beastly creature that gives her a painful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the posion from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it).

Point is, they saved her life. So when one of the blood-suckers asks for a favor, she complies. And soon, Sookie's in Dallas using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved. There's just one condition: The vampires must promise to behave-and let the humans go unharmed. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly....



My Thoughts: First I just want to say that I love this series! This is the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series. There is actually two stories going on in the book. The first is Sookie and Bill going to Dallas to find a missing vampire for Eric and the second is Sookie trying to solve Lafayette's murder. I enjoyed the story of finding the missing vampire. They figure out that the vampire was kidnapped by the Fellowship of the Sun which is an anti-vampire cult like group. When Sookie is also captured by the Fellowship she meets a shapeshifter Luna who hel
ps her escape. I didn't love the solving of Lafayette's murder part of the book. On the whole I thought that it was really good and can't wait to read Club Dead.

On a side note I absolutely loved Bill in the first book. I have to say I didn't love him as much in this book

Book Description (from author's website):

GETTING TO FIRST BASE IS CINCH…BUT GETTING HOME WILL TAKE A GRAND SLAM.

Pace Martin is the ace pitcher for the Pacific Heat. He’s got the arm, the experience and the wins. He’s also got the pain, the pressure, and the possible end of his career looming over him. The last thing he needs now is a distraction, even if it comes in the form of a tough, beautiful,tell-it-like-it-is writer who sees past his defenses. Holly Hutchins knows a good story when she sees one, and the tall, dark and slightly attitude-ridden Pace Martin fits the bill. But when she realizes there’s more at stake than just the win, she starts to notice the handsome broad-shouldered jock in a different light. Pace and Holly begin a seductive game in which neither wants to drop the ball, but in the face of an unexpected betrayal and challenge, they’ll have to find the courage to swing for the fences…

At Graves End by Jeaniene Frost


Rating 5 stars!!!

Book Description (from the author's website):
Some Things Won't Stay Buried
... At Grave's End It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield's life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she's successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat's worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover's finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn't enough, a woman from Bones's past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat's about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she's learned as a special agent won't help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself – and Bones – from a fate worse than the grave.

My Thoughts: From my previous posts about this series it's safe to say that I loved this book.
There is a lot going on in the book. What makes this book even better than the 2nd book is that Cat and Bones are together through out the whole book. Things are still hot and steamy even with a vampire war coming. I do feel that this book was a little bit darker than the first two, but I think it had to be due to the story Ms. Frost was telling. I loved it!! I can't wait until July 28th when Destined for An Early Grave is released. Ms Frost is also working on a new series that is called Night Huntress World the first book is First Drop of Crimson which will feature Spade as the hero, but she is not releasing the name of the heroine...yet. That will be released in Spring 2010. I can't stressed enough how great this series is!!

One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

5 Stars!!!!!



Book Decription (from author's website): You can run from the grave, but you can't hide... Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head - wanted: dead or half-alive - means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever ... and Bones won't let her get away again.

My thoughts: This is the second book in the Night Huntress Series and is just as good as the first. This book starts four years after Halfway to the Grave. Cat is now working for the government and hasn’t seen Bones since she left him in Ohio. Bones has been looking for Cat and finally finds her. When he does the sparks fly and they soon realize that they never stop loving each other. Cat left Bones to protect him from the very government she is working for. Cat convinces her boss that she needs Bone’s help to figure out who is trying to kill her. There are some secondary characters introduce in this book that weren’t in the first and it makes the story more interesting. The main focus of the book is still Cat and Bones. You become so involved in this world Ms. Frost has created. It’s a great combination of urban fantasy and romance. I don’t want to give too much away, if you haven’t already picked up this series what are you waiting for!! The first three are already out and the fourth book is being released on July 28th. If you love KMM fever series, but would like a little more romance I can’t recommend the series enough.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris


Rating 5 Stars!!!!!


Dead Until Dark is the first book in the very popular Southern Vampire Series (AKA Sookie Stackhouse Series) by Charlaine Harris. I had no intentions of reading this series, I don't usually like books told in the first person POV. When we received a copy of the book at the bookstore I decided to give it a try, because I was looking for something different from what I usually read and I just started watching True Blood which is based on this book.


The story is told completely from Sookie's POV. Sookie is a telepathic waitress in a small town in Northern Louisiana. She has been waiting to meet a vampire since vampires came out of the coffin 2 years ago. One night when she is working her wish comes true and she meets her first vampire. Bill Compton has come back to Bon Temps to renovate his family's home and become a mainstream vampire. Those are vampires that live among humans and survive on synthetic blood developed by the Japanese.
This is more of a mystery than a romance. There is a lot of romance elements in this book. The story really centers around Sookie trying to catch a killer before the killer finds her.



I loved everything about this book. I loved Sookie she is a great character. I am in love with vampire Bill. I know a lot of fans of this series are not fans of Bill. There is just something about him that I love. It could be that I love Stephen Moyer who plays Bill in the TV series True Blood. As I continue to read the series I may change my mind. This book also has secondary characters that are well written. You feel like you get to know all of these people through Sookie.


This is the type of book that once you start reading it you will not be able to put it down. It also stays with and you can't wait to start the next one. I'm actually excited that I discovered this series so late. I can read all nine without having to wait. Ms. Harris only writes one Sookie Stackhouse book a year.

If you like vampire books you definitely need to check out this series:

1 Dead Until Dark
2. Living Dead in Dallas
3. Club Dead
4. Dead to the World
5. Dead as a Doornail
6. Definitely Dead
7. All Together Dead
8. From Dead to Worse
9. Dead and Gone
There are also several short stories that take place in "Sookie's World". They are being released in one volume called A Touch of Dead in October.

"Waiting on" Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Rumors and Gossip . . . The lifeblood of London

When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fianc√Če, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something.
Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security. He's not a spy, but he's had all the training, and when a gorgeous blonde begins to watch him from her window, he is instantly suspicious. But just when he decides that she's nothing more than an annoyingly nosy debutante, he discovers that she might be engaged to a foreign prince, who might be plotting against England. And when Harry is roped into spying on Olivia, he discovers that he might be falling for her himself . .



Julia Quinn is one of my all time favorite authors. I really exciting about this book. Even though I didn't love last year "Lost Duke of Wydham". Julia Quinn will always be an auto-buy for me and I will be buying this when it's release on the 30th.

Are they any summer releases that you can't wait to get your hands on?

Tuesday, June 2, 2009



It was a some what slow reading month. A little bit better than April. I read some really good books. I also discovered Sookie Stackhouse and read the first book in the series and watch the entire first season of True Blood. Which was great!



Here is what I read in May:

Romeo, Romeo by Robin Kaye - A great debut novel. I loved Nick Romeo! He is a great hero. Who doesn't love a guy that takes care of you when your sick. I have her next book Too Hot to Handle in my TBR and I can't wait to read it. Rating 4.75!!





With a Twist by Deirdre Martin - Deirdre Martin is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books since her debut novel Body Check. I really enjoyed this story. We met both the hero and heroine in her last book Just a Taste. Quinn is a hard nose reporter and Natalie is still trying to keep her shopping under control. It was also great to see Vivi and Anthony again. Rating 4.5!



Under Fire by Jo Davis - Another really good book. I love Zack Knight!! I virgin hero, you don't see that very often in romance novels. Ms. Davis really made this work. Poor Zach, I have never seen a hero end up in the hospital as many times as he did in this book. Some of the story was a little over the top. but I didn't mind.
Rating 4.5!!



Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris - I have discover Sookie Stackhouse and I'm so excited!! I can not wait to read the rest of the series. There is nothing like finding a new author! Right now I am firmly in Team Bill's camp. I haven't read the rest of the series yet. So we will see if that changes. I also watched the entire first season of True Blood which was really really good!! 5 stars!!

Under Her Skin by Susan Mallery - Another Winner! Susan Mallery is one of my favorite author. She has been an auto-buy for me for years. One of my favorite storylines is when the hero and heroine have a past. Lexi and Cruz had a one night stand in college and years later they meet again. Cruz has an offer for Lexi that she can't refuse. Rating 4 stars!!

Lucky Charm by Carly Phillips - I was really enjoying this book, but I left it in my friends car before I could finish it. I hate when I do that!!
