Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Ever since Singh first mentioned the Alaris deep-sea station (I can’t remember when this was), I hoped that she would write a story that gave us a closer look at this unusual setting and its unique occupants. She finally does so in this sweet novella about Stefan, a Psy/TK, and Tazia, a human working on the station. Though Tazia is human, she is a lot like Stefan. Estranged from her family, Tazia lives a very lonely life aboard Alaris. As a Psy and former Arrow, Stefan has learned to keep a tight leash on his emotions. However, when the two end up working together to help rebuild a village, their attraction reaches a breaking point which neither can ignore. … Read more »

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt

Hippopyta Royle is on the run. With the help of housekeeper Bridget Crumb, she has managed to escape a plot by the Duke of Montgomery to force her into marriage. Unfortunately, Hippolyta is still in danger as the Duke has sent his hounds to find her. Luckily she happens upon a carriage and begs for a lift to the next town. Covered in dirt, leaves, and who knows what else, Hippolyta looks like a homeless cat and not like the heiress that she is. It’s no wonder then that the carriage’s owner and occupant, Matthew Mortimer, doesn’t believe her when she tells him her wild tale. He takes pity on her though and agrees to take her to the next village. As they travel, Hippolyta and Matthew trade barbs that disguise… Read more »

Comic-Con 2016 Recap: Television

Comic-Con 2016 Recap: Television

Hello, dear readers! Well it’s been a couple of weeks since the insanity that is Comic-Con. I feel like it was all kind of a dream still but I am slowly getting back into real life. I had a really good con this year. It was another laid back year for me. I definitely had some panels and signings I wanted to get to but nothing I would be heartbroken about if missed. This year I focused on a lot of bookish and comics related panels with a few TV panels thrown in. I didn’t get to any of the… Read more »

Trailer: A Monster Calls

Trailer: A Monster Calls

Happy Monday, guys. I just spent the weekend in San Diego for Comic-Con. So many books, movies and shows to talk about soon but, in the meantime, I am posting this trailer for A Monster Calls that I meant to post last week. I haven’t read the book yet but I know I have a copy in my library somewhere. I really like the look of the trailer though and who doesn’t love Liam Neeson? I have a feeling there might be some tears when in the audience when I go see this. What do you guys think? Does this… Read more »

Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt

I will admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard that the Duke of Montgomery was getting his own book. Not that I didn’t enjoy the devious and devilishly handsome troublemaker, but Val there are bad boys and then there’s Val. He has caused quite a lot of mischief in the Maiden Lane series and I wasn’t sure how Hoyt was going to turn him into the hero of this story. Changing too much of Val’s character would seem disingenuous but could I root for someone who might be more villain… Read more »

Uncovered (153): The Graces

Uncovered (153): The Graces

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a (semi) weekly post where I show some cover love. I came across the cover to The Graces by Laure Eve just a few days ago and immediately knew that it would be making an appearance here on Uncovered. I love graphic style covers and this one is extremely eye catching. I love all of the fine line work in it. The colors remind me of a Japanese print with the gold and red…. Read more »
