Just as I was mourning the last of the Warder books, here is a warm and lovely Christmas story about Malic and Dylan. I will admit to a certain affection for this couple. Malic was a older hearth; a loner of few words and fewer friends until he found his Hearth in the person of… Continue reading Cherish Your Name by Mary Calmes – A Review

A Review of Enduring Instincts by S.J. Frost
I finished Enduring Instincts just last night and loved it. S. J. Frost has continued her universe of vampires and their Eternal Partners here with the 2nd book in her Instincts series. I thought her rockers were terrific (and yes, they still are), but I think her vampires are right up there in my affections.… Continue reading A Review of Enduring Instincts by S.J. Frost
A Review of Bounty of Love by Scotty Cade
I give this a almost 4. I really liked this book and Scotty Cade’s writing while at the same time repeatedly hitting my forehead with the desk. I liked it but it gave me a headache. First off, the beginning of the book had me in tears. Scotty Cade builds up this picture of a… Continue reading A Review of Bounty of Love by Scotty Cade
A Review of Puppy, Car and Snow by Amy Lane
The relationship between Ryan and Scott was so solid and real that I fell in love with them immediately. Amy Lane also portrayed the stresses that the holidays put on couples in such a funny and realistic manner that I could relate to all the family situations that Scott and Ryan encountered. Ryan’s mother dearest… Continue reading A Review of Puppy, Car and Snow by Amy Lane

A Review of Border Roads by Sarah Black
This was both an amazing book and a hard read. It is also especially timely given that the war in Iraq is just now over and troops are coming home. Plus we still have so many men and women fighting in Afghanistan. This is, above all, a story of 4 members of a Marine platoon… Continue reading A Review of Border Roads by Sarah Black
A Review of Half Pass by Astrid Amara
review I am a fan of Astrid Amara’s books and this is no exception. What a pleasure to read a book set in the equestrian world of dressage barns and boarders by someone who knows horses and the politics of boarding. She has all the details exactly right, from the quirks of various horses to… Continue reading A Review of Half Pass by Astrid Amara
Of Holidays, Birthdays and Celebrations
Here it is the 18th of December and Christmas is but a few days away. This hardly seems possible as I clearly remember it being Thanksgiving only yesterday and cooking up a storm for dinner at the farm with the family. Now it’s Christmas and New Year’s just around the corner. That means it is… Continue reading Of Holidays, Birthdays and Celebrations
