Review: Forever Grace

It’s stories like this that make me enjoy romance books. This is such a sweet and heartwarming story. I can easily remember it after several months, and several other books, and that makes it special. I love the accurate portrayal of people, both adults and children. Children so rarely appear in romance stories, except as side notes, but in this entire series children play an important role in each family, and this book is no exception. They are realistic and adorable and amusing. The adults are much the same way, with very character having a fully developed personality, complete with […]

Review: Forever After

Have you ever finished a story and wanted just a little more? This short story does just that. It gives the reader just a bit more time with Gwyn and Gareth, with a fun tale of their wedding. Even though this is a short story, it’s still well developed. I was able to easily slip back into the characters lives, and experience this joyful, and stressful, adventure. I had several laughing moments, and the obligatory cry-at-the-wedding moment. It was a great hour’s read when I needed a little pick-me-up, and made me excited for the next book in the series, […]

Review: Gwynneth Ever After

Sometimes you need a heartfelt, sighing, sweet romance, and this is book fits the bill perfectly. This is such a satisfying romance, and as a bonus, features several very realistic children characters. Children characters in romance books tend to be either absent or seriously stereotyped. The children in this book are very much fully developed and realistic, and add a touch of homey amusement to the story. It made the romance that much sweeter because it felt possible. Gwyn’s situation was realistic and believable, and while meeting a hunky movie star isn’t very believable, it is the stuff of dreams, […]

Review: Sins of the Lost

This book is the darkest and deadliest of the series so far. The story is moving beyond Alex and her involvement with everything that’s happened so far, and is setting up for the big showdown. Like the last book, this is an intense Heaven versus Hell story, without religion. I find this incredibly intriguing, and very satisfying, in a slightly horrorific sort of way. While Alex is still very much near the spotlight of the book, I thought that more focus was put onto Seth. I didn’t really care for his character, either in the beginning, or when things really […]

Review: Sins of the Son

I flat out loved this story. I really like the first book in this series, and I’m so happy that I loved the second book even more. This is an intense angel versus demon with looming apocalypse storyline. It’s heavily religion based, and yet the story doesn’t feel religious at all. I feel like it took the best parts of a religion-based plot (strong characters with familiar feel) and avoided the potential pitfalls (preaching) and delivered an overall amazing story. This story is set in Vancouver, which gives me warm fuzzy feelings. I love when stories are set in Canadian […]

Review: Sins of the Angels

This was a clean yet sexy thriller that was part paranormal and part police drama. The tension between Alex and Aramael was steamy and exciting, matched in excitement by the action happening around them. Alex was a great female main character. She was stubborn and smart and outgoing. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind or put others in their place, especially Aramael. Both frustrating and entertaining, she was character you could both cheer for and want to shake. The combination makes for a great heroine in an urban fantasy story. The only downside to the book was the slightly […]
