Breaking Point - Suzanne Brockman

Breaking Point - Suzanne Brockman A+

Max and Gina's story... FINALLY. Somehow I missed this when it was released, but I am sooooo glad I found it. Max Baghet, FBI agent, has a problem with love. When you love someone, chances are you are going to lose them. So when he hears that the one woman who has snuck into his heart is killed in a Hamburg terrorist bombing he isn't surprised. But that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt. The story involves a couple of other people we have seen before in the Troubleshooters series. Molly, the aid worker returns to the forefront when her ex-lover, Grady Morant aka Jones, shows up at the camp where she and Gina are working.

If you haven't read this series... I recommend doing so. Especially
if you like romantic suspense.

Wicked Nights - Nina Bangs

Wicked Nights - Nina Bangs B

First in a Wicked trilogy. This was about a vampire, Eric, and a night radio talk show host, Donna who strike sparks off one another from the moment they meet. Eric is trying to protect his "family" from discovery so that they can all stay at the Castle of Dark Dreams, a fantasy based theme park. Donna is broadcasting her talk show from the Castle for a week, to debunk all the stories that her listeners have been giving her about the strange sexcapades that are going on there. Cosmic troublemaker, Sparkle Stardust is back with her virgin assistant to matchmake and ensure lots of sex is had by all. Great fun, though I am hoping the second book is a little more plot oriented and less sex oriented.

The Pleasure Slave - Gena Showalter

The Pleasure Slave - Gena Showalter B+

Sexy story about a man caught in jewelry box because of a curse . I was a little leery of this one, because I read a story a wee bit like this a while back. But I was pleasantly surprised. The story was simple, but well plotted. I am sure this is a series, though I can't find evidence of a second book yet. It was a nice diversion from all the historicals I had been reading.. it bridged the gap since it had both modern day and history.

Deadly Kisses - Brenda Joyce

Deadly Kisses - Brenda Joyce A-

Francesca Cahill book - nine? Anyway, this time Calder's ex-mistress is found dead in the home he was trying to oust her from. Fran and her cop companion, Rick Bragg, must uncover the truth, thwart a blackmailer, and find a way to keep Rick's brother, Calder out of prison for Daisy's murder. I absolutely love this series. I want to be Fran!! :-D Also there is some plot movement in the secondary characters lives, however... this is the last Cahill book for "a while" according to the author she has to follow her muse. Which angers me just a bit.. I want her muse to follow FRAN!

The Reiver's Bride - Amanda Scott

The Reiver's Bride - Amanda Scott B+

Book Four of The Secret Clan. This one wasn't as good as the last ones, though I was totally into the secondary plot line on this one. The secret clan, since I don't think I explained it before, are fairies and pixies and such. They are each assigned a highland family to protect. In this one they are searching for Claud who's evil father has put him into the body of a mortal. So the entire story I was trying to figure out who's body he was in. Thankfully, I was right with my first guess!! Yeah me!

The Highland Bride - Amanda Scott

The Highland Bride - Amanda Scott A

Book three of The Secret Clan. This one is about Babs, Patrick's little sister, and the Black Fox. I really liked Alex, the hero, and the Black Fox was a little bit Robin Hood, a little bit Zorro, and a little bit the Lone Ranger. LOL The story was really good as well, and you know me...Happy Endings!!
