Tonight the biggest names in music come together for the annual induction of new members into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This year welcomes the likes of Heart (see Kicking and Dreaming), Rush ( see Contents Under Pressure), Donna Summer, Randy Newman (see Randy Newman’s American Dreams), and Public Enemy. Watching the event offers a great opportunity to see favorite musicians perform together, and if you’re unable to see it live you can always tune in to HBO ...more
Where There’s Smoke by LA Witt gives us the definitive alpha male character in Anthony, political campaign manager extraordinaire. Almost every romance author tries to write alpha males, and the ham-fisted result is usually obnoxious and smug as to be completely unattractive. But not Anthony. Sure, he is hard charging, strong-willed, poised, and self-confident. However, this is balanced by his intensity and vulnerability to Jesse. He is way too driven and emotionally committed to sit around smirking with amused detachment.
Jesse’s innocence and integrity make him a ...more
It’s said that politics makes strange bedfellows, and that may be true, but it does provide more than adequate fodder for television and reading enjoyment. The TV drama Scandal has earned raves from critics and viewers who crave political intrigue and conflict. Here at All Romance and OmniLit, we carry many hot thrillers set in executive offices and government meeting rooms…and occasionally a senator’s or lobbyist’s bedroom.
If you need more political stimulation in your life and it isn’t Thursday night, bide the time waiting the next ...more
Noble Metals by LA Witt is an intriguing mix of historical romance (maybe 90 percent) and steampunk (maybe 10 percent, perfectly placed). Its breathtakingly vivid descriptions of the harsh pioneer wilderness of the Alaskan Gold Rush years make it a fresh and unusual variation on most steampunk fiction, which is set in overcrowded Victorian metropolises like London.
At the same time, there are wonderful steampunk images such as the “mech,” a giant mechanical spider that the prospectors use to carry their supplies over the ice. The ...more
How could I resist this story? It is written by a talented author and released by a hot new publisher (Riptide Publishing). It has gorgeous cover art by LC Chase, a clever and intriguing title, and it puts a fresh spin on the vampire myth, reworking it into a terrifyingly decadent and soulless futuristic society. A Chip in His Shoulder is boldly different from the usual science fiction dystopia with its focus on extreme class differences and the unique role of vampires in this glittering, high-tech ...more
Cover Me by LA Witt is a complex and gritty novel at 107,000 words from Carnal Passions (Champagne Books). It features a first-person viewpoint and several red-hot sex scenes as well as a detailed, insider look at the high stress world of paramedics and cops. I had two small regrets – first, that the setting was never specified beyond a nameless North American city. Second, the narrative, while fast-paced, seemed slightly overwritten with Nick’s tendency to overthink events.
