SWEET THE SIN by Claire Kent

"If you are looking for different, look no further than Claire Kent’s SWEET THE SIN. Holy cow. What an amazing amount of story is piled into under 200 pages. This book made me feel interesting and, I’ll admit, slightly uncomfortable things..."

#tbt Covers: MOTORCYCLE MAN by Kristen Ashley

I’m a huge Kristen Ashley fan and her Dream Man series is where I started. In honor of book three in her Chaos series, I thought I’d share the old cover from the book that started it all, MOTORCYCLE MAN.

ON THE SHELF: Motorcycle Club Books

With the last Chaos series book, RIDE STEADY, out from Kristen Ashley, I decided to dedicate this week’s On The Shelf to motorcycle club books. Motorcycle books are a trope that many love. We are fortunate enough to have a wide range of motorcycle books to choose from. Our choices run the gamut from gritty and sometimes scary to a kinder, sweeter variety. Let’s sally forth with the books on my shelf.

Review: PUT UP YOUR DUKE (Dukes Behaving Badly #2) By Megan Frampton

"This is the second full length book in Megan Frampton’s Dukes Behaving Badly series and I have to say, our newly anointed Duke, Nicholas Smithfield, is not behaving badly at all. I mean, once we retrieve him from a little foursome action at a house of ill-repute at the beginning of the book, Nicholas is a perfectly mannered and a proper gentleman!"

June Cover Love

It might be true that you can't judge a book by its cover, but that doesn't meant we can't play favorites! And so we share the covers that got us the most hot and bothered this month.


"This is Kate Baxter’s debut and she really knocks it out of the park. If you are a paranormal romance lover, I strongly suggest you check this series out."

On The Shelf: Paranormal for Newbies

Paranormal romance is one of my all time favorite sub-genres. I love it: the world-building, the danger, the claiming and mating -- it’s the ultimate in reading escapism. We all know about the basics of paranormal romance (PNR) so this week’s On The Shelf is offering you some ideas that you may not have thought of.

ON MY KNEES (Stark International #2) by J. Kenner

"I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer Probst during the 2015 RT Book Lovers Convention in Dallas. She mentions SEARCHING FOR BEAUTIFUL in the interview so of course I read it as soon as I got home! This was my first Jennifer Probst book and it certainly will not be my last."

In honor of romance-loving moms everywhere, we’ve put together a list of great reads for Mother’s Day, with picks from our very own Scandal, Tiffany Tyer, and editor Sue Grimshaw. Happy Mother’s Day and happy reading!

SCANDAL: Season 4, Episode 21

"Usually I love a show that kicks off with an “Adult Content” warning -- but maybe not so much with this one. Jake is busy recovering at warp speed under Liv’s watchful eye. Quinn and Huck are next door doing all sorts of nasty torture “adult content” things to Russell. They want to understand what Foxtail is and Quinn has the power tools and isn’t afraid to use them. Brutal, just brutal; but then again, when you work for Papa Pope, crap like this is in the job description. We know Russell was trained better than that – he doesn’t need a kneecap or his fingernails – they won't get the Foxtail scoop out of him."

SCANDAL: Season 4, Episode 20

Well, if we’ve all recovered from the Grey’s Anatomy McDreamy loss felt ‘round the world, let’s get on with our SCANDAL recap and see what sort of mischief Shonda Rhimes gives us in DC.

SCANDAL: Season 4, Episode 19

Last night's SCANDAL ends with a "Whaaaaaat?!??!" moment. Our recap gives you all the details...SPOILER ALERT!!

THE AMERICANS: Season 3, Episode 12

Last night's episode kept our Scandal at the edge of her seat. She finally caught her breath and has a recap. Next week is the season finale!


"Oh boy, what a story. A HIGHLANDER’s PASSION is difficult to read at times but the pay off is worth it. I am normally not a heroine cheerleader; I wear more of the hero apologist hat in my reading circles. I will fully admit to being harder on heroines because I expect more out of us lady folks. Kenzie Denune needs all of the cheerleading and love she can get. That poor woman has dealt with more than her share of crap. If our bear-shifter hero Bryce Matheson wasn’t so good at the grovel, I’d say he doesn’t deserve her love. Luckily, his groveling is on point."

THE AMERICANS: Season 3, Episode 11

Paige kicks off this week’s episode with some hard questions for her parents. Throughout the course of the episode we have several more encounters between Paige and her parents, each one more uncomfortable than the next...
