Forget Me Not by Terri Molina is a great suspenseful romance with a hypnotic plot. Casey’s character is interesting because underneath the stoic façade she portrays to the public is a woman still haunted by her mother’s death and father’s subsequent incarceration. Who can blame her for wanting to forget such a past? However, she can’t run forever and she ends up going home to hide from a psychotic stalker out to kill her. Casey’s homecoming gets rather interesting when she meets detective Scott Weller. ...more

Veronique has had a hard life, having been kicked out of her home for being a pregnant teenager.

Burn by Crystal Hubbard is one of the most gut-wrenching yet beautiful stories I’ve read. The story starts somewhat innocuously and then all of a sudden goes into this unspeakable house of horror that as I read, I didn’t want to blink until I discovered what was in the room as Zebulon climbed the stairs. From that point on I was hooked. Burn is an interracial romance with moments of high suspense and while some tough issues are raised and dealt with, the romance that develops ...more

The Detective’s Lover by Aliyah Burke
Apprehension Prisoner of Desire by Yvette Hines
The Accidental Mistress by Sienna Mynx
Born to Fly: Wild As The Wind by Aliyah Burke
St. Patty’s Baby by Sienna Mynx
In St. Patty’s Baby by Sienna Mynx I got to revisit Tia and Melvin Reed, who first captivated me in Funny Valentine. There is something about Melvin’s character that is so raw, so gritty and yet pure at the same time. Having been raised in a predominantly black community Melvin adopts the lingua and he does so very well. His love for Tia is so all consuming it hurts and it heals all at the same time. I believe ...more
Born to Fly: Wild As The Wind by Aliyah Burke is an interracial romance and another great novel about the Stark brothers. The story is appealing because Verity’s profession is unusual for a female and the storyline is made more interesting by the danger they face right after meeting each other. Dominic is every woman’s dream, from his uniform to his tanned good looks. Verity is an intellectual but she comes across as very informal and down-to-earth. There isn’t ...more
The Accidental Mistress by Siennx Mynx is another winner for me by this author. While the main characters Christophe and Zuri are similar in their affluent upbringing, they are from different countries and cultural backgrounds. Their differences don’t create a problem for them, but are eventually used as a weapon against them by Christophe’s scheming mother. There is much detail and description given to bringing the island of Martinique to life and this breathes life into the setting and ...more
