Adored in Autumn

Written with great finesse this love story deals with domestic abuse, forgiveness, lost love, making choices that change the lives of others, retribution, closure to the past and new beginnings. With a dramatic opening the reader will move quickly through this book in anticipation of how it will end for Felicity. With clear and vivid descriptions of the surroundings and era in which she lived, one will be drawn to the past and a time where women had no rights.

The author does a great job in Felicity’s character and how she deals with her life and the past. There is just the right amount of courage and tentativeness to make her believable for the era the book was written about. I love how she matured and finally goes after what she wants. Scenes between her and Asher are particularly poignant leaving a lasting impression on this reader.

For the main male character Asher is perfect; humble, intelligent, caring and strong all in a gentle way. I like that his character is balanced in a less domineering manner as this would never work for Felicity due to her previous abusive marriage. This man understands that she can’t be railroaded into things and needs to be able to make her own decisions. There are some times in the book that I wanted to shake him to not be so passive but they fit with the story and Felicity’s needs.

The secondary characters are from the other three books to this series and it is great to see how they have evolved through time. Each of their stories will entice the reader to want to read the book with their story. I know that I have read the last two books of the series and I want to go back and read the first two books to get closure to this series for me.

I give this 4 stars for the authors ability to draw the reader into supporting Felicity and what occurred between her and her husband the Viscount.

The Protector: A Sons of Texas Novel

The second book to the Sons of Texas series starts out with a wow factor that quickly draws the reader into the continuing story of the Loughman brothers who are trying to find and rescue their father if he is still alive. Much like the first book the story was superbly detailed in all the action scenes and interaction between the characters. This story continually expands adding more detail to the existing story in The Hero book 1.

All the primary and secondary characters are fully developed and the intertwining of them in various parts of the book will keep the readers up to the wee hours of the night reading this book so they can finish it in one sitting.

This book opens more of the plot but also shows that sometimes it is hard to tell who is an enemy or friend so the reader will need to take their time while reading to catch all the little hidden details that will help them decide.

Mia is the heroine I want to be like. She is strong, independent, smart, sexy and a kickass pilot. Though her character comes across as being all knowing there is a sweetness about her that I find attractive in a heroine.

Cullen of the three brothers did not interest me as much in the first book but in this book, his character expands and he takes on the role of Hero in a spectacular manner. As he continues to open himself to Mia I grew fonder of him and by the end of the book I was in love with his character.

I am so excited about this series that I give The Protector 5 STARS and look forward to the next book in this series.

Ready Set Rogue

I am in love with this series because the woman are so smart. Not only are they smart but each of them is gifted in different areas and their differences keep this story extremely fascinating and fast paced. With the addition of humor via Daphne’s character the reader will find this an amusing and fun read.

Quill and Ivy’s interaction are like a tug of war over who will be in control. Quill the poor man doesn’t know what to make of Ivy’s intelligence and he spends much of his time trying to staying out of trouble with her by saying the wrong thing. But honestly he is very quick to learn his lesson and soon those two have the reader going around in circles as they chase clues to his aunt’s death.

There are numerous secondary characters that add lots of drama and spice to the story. Each of them could have an interesting story and I can’t wait to see if the author takes these other characters further in other books to this new series.

This book is like a mystery murder story with very intelligent women, two hot men and lots of fun along the way. Don’t get me wrong this is not a frivolous read but a brilliantly executed story leading into more books to this series. I can’t wait for the next book and it looks like it may involve Daphne and the Duke.
