🎧 Well Traveled by Jen DeLuca @jaydee_ell @brit_pressley @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I’ve been really enjoying the Well Met series with its setting in renaissance faires.  In each book, we meet more of the regular performers who travel the circuit of faires.   One wouldn’t have to read the series in order, but I do because of the character developments and knowing more about the supporting characters. The […]

🎧 A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams @LyssaKayAdams @eiden_andrew @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #GIVEAWAY #HoHoHoRA2022 @angels_gp

The Bromance Book Club series has worked its way into the must read category.  I really enjoy getting the depth on a new couple in each book but getting to see all the guys in the club and sometimes their ladies.  The humor is the real deal. I was a little worried about a country […]

The Passion of the Purple Plumeria by Lauren Willig @laurenwillig @BerkleyPub @sophiarose1816

The Pink Carnation series edges ever nearer to the final book and in this latest, we get to see the Pink Carnation’s own second in command stepping reluctantly into the limelight for this latest spying adventure slash treasure hunt from Paris to Bath and into the English countryside.  Full of frolicksome humor, a pinch of […]

Devouring Darkness by Chloe Neill @chloeneill @BerkleyPub @AceRocBooks

The Heirs of Chicagoland  series continues with  the next generation in Chicago.   I am enjoying learning about them as individuals. They have various strengths and issues.  The characters are developed a bit more in each book. We see Elisa having more political skills to work with other species.  I’ve been enjoying the stories and it […]

Killers of a Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn @BerkleyPub @sophiarose1618

Killers of a Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn  @BerkleyPub  @sophiarose1618

Nothing like the gift of a cruise to send four older female assassins out in style, especially since the company has decided that only a deadly termination of their employment will do.  Deanna Raybourn has written some sparkling historical mysteries, but this dive into a modern day thriller with senior citizen protagonists grabbed my fancy […]

🎧 Rules of Engagement by Selena Montgomery #SelenaMontgomery  @justjanuary @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #Giveaway

I really wanted to try this one because of who the author is.   The narrator being a favorite tipped me into trying the audio.   Rules of Engagement looked to be just the kind of romantic suspense I enjoy. There is a complex set of layers in this world and in these characters.  The main setting […]

🎧 Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood @EverSoAli #BrookeBloomingdale @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #GIVEAWAY #LoveAudiobooks

I always enjoy the books by this author.  I realize now they have have some similarities. The characters are based in interesting science study or work.  The female is talented, smart and has not had good experiences with men.  She has focused on her intellectual life more than her emotional one.  Sometimes they have good […]
