Reflections on three standout authors whose work I read in 2017 - TJ Klune, KJ Charles and Santino Hassell.
There’s so much to love about Aqua Follies. It's a romance novel with depth and complexity at both the emotional and historical (1950s) level.
Once again celebrating Australian Women Writers, today's review is focused on the Red Dirt Heart sequence from N.R. Walker. It comprises four m/m romance novels set on a massive cattle station in the Northern Territory (north-east of Alice Springs), and deals primarily with themes of 'being gay in outback Australia' and family.

Yet again, I read a fair few books in December. In fact, I've become somewhat addicted to nose-in-kindle and am at the point where I get a little agitated if I try to take a break. Seriously. I wasn't joking in my last post when I said I'd spent every day since Christmas on the … Continue reading What I read in December

Under Her Protection: Stories of Women to the Rescue is edited by Toronto-based author and keen fellow traveller, Siri Paulson. … Continue reading Stories of Women to the Rescue

Sipping coffee in Athens and wishing something would happen, Camilla accidentally agrees to drive a hire car to Delphi for someone called Simon. It turns … Continue reading May reading: My Brother Michael and more

Since I was lucky enough to score an Advanced Reader's Copy, I thought I would share my thoughts on the book, which has been published as an e-book under the Crimson Romance label. First, the official awesome blurb … Continue reading Book Review: Forever and Ever, Amen ~ Liv Rancourt
Paranormal and/or Romance author Liv Rancourt is my guest today and I like her post so much I think I'll follow up next week with one of my own on the same topic. She's addressing a question I ask myself frequently... Why do I write? She's also included an excerpt at the bottom from her … Continue reading Why I write – 5 reasons from Liv Rancourt
