Quick Paranormal

A Taste of Shifter Geekdom: Shifter Romance (Vanguard Elite) (Volume 2) - Annie Nicholas

Slow Burn - J.H. Croix

Slow Burn is an entertaining contemporary romance by J.H. Croix.  Ms. Croix has delivered a book that is well-written (even though it's in the hated first person, alternating point of view) and loaded with fantastic characters.  Maisie inherits her grandmother's home and job as a dispatcher for Willow Brook's Fire & Rescue.  Beck accidentally walks in on Maisie when she's showering at the station.  Maisie and Beck's story is loaded with drama, smokin' hot sex, humor and a little suspense.  I enjoyed reading Slow Burn and look forward to reading more from J.H. Croix in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Historical Romance

The Mysterious Governess - Beverley Oakley

The Mysterious Governess is a historical romance by Beverley Oakley.  Ms. Oakley has delivered a well-written book.  Having read a few of Ms. Oakley's books and enjoyed them, this one was a bit of a disappointment.  Lissa's parents are not married.  While being jealous of her half-siblings, she still treats them with kindness.  She is working as a governess and does portraits that her employer's son passes off as his own.  Ralph works as a secretary for a scoundrel.  Lissa and Ralph's story has drama, a few sexy bits and a little action.  I look forward to my next book by Beverley Oakley and hope that I enjoy it as much as the other books of hers that I've read because this one left me flat.  The Mysterious Governess is book 3 of the Daughters Of Sin Series but can be read as a standalone.

Disturbing

Security Binds Her (Thalia Book 1) (The Thalia Series) - Jennifer Bene

Security Binds Her is a dark read by Jennifer Bene.  Ms. Bene has delivered a book that is well-written.  This book is horrifying, but at the same time, like a train crash, you can't look away.  I had to keep reading.  Thalia was kidnapped leaving work one night.  Her kidnapper wants to train her to the BDSM lifestyle because she will be auctioned off.  Basically, it's a story of human trafficking.  There's plenty of drama, suspense and lots of sex in this book.  There is also rape and torture in this story, so it's not for everyone.  This isn't what I was expecting, and I found it disturbing.  While I can't rate this book at 5 stars, I also can't rate it at 1 or 2 just because of my personal preference.  Security Binds Her is book 1 of the Thalia Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete story, not a cliff-hanger.  Thalia's story does continue in other books though, so it's not her whole story.
