Deception by Kris Kennedy - Historical medieval romance, 2012, Pocket, Grade = C
- A heavy medieval romance with lots of intricate plotting and language. I would highly recommend this for hardcore medieval fans, while more casual medieval readers (like myself) may find it a bit too much.
- A quietly plotted erotica novel about a aimless 20-something who enters into a menage relationship with a married couple. Dynamite characters and enough emotional angst to rip your guts out. I've seen a lot of "ho-hum" reviews for this one, but damn - I loved it.
- Hero who behaves like a selfish jackass because "Daddy doesn't love him." A heroine who keeps giving the poor little rich boy a free pass because he's dreamy, has a big penis, and is good in bed. Great small-town, community setting though, and a secondary romance I enjoyed.
- An adversarial romance where I couldn't figure out how they became adversaries in the first place. Also the heroine's continual denial over a friend's drinking problem bordered on reckless stupidity.
- A hero looking for revenge against an inept commanding officer finds himself smitten with the man's betrothed. A few years later, she's widowed and he invites her to spend the holidays with him in Scotland.
- Army Corporal heroine is trying to get home for Christmas when a blizzard gets in the way. Enter stage left, the widower Navy SEAL hero who promises to do everything he can to make sure she doesn't break her promise to her little boy. A sweet, sexy holiday novella with a lovely ending.
- A Native American hero with a sixth sense, a plot moppet little girl, and paranormal elements that are like a sledgehammer to your frontal lobe doomed this book for me.
- Repetitive, boring conflict, a heroine who keeps saying no while her body screams yes, an oily hero whose dialogue was ripped off from a Pepe Le Pew cartoon, and sequel-baiting with all subtlety of a chainsaw. I just saw this book was nominated for an RT Book Reviews award and all I could think was, "Really? Are they high?!?!?!?!"
- Biography of Mrs. Katherine Chancellor on the daytime soap opera, The Young And The Restless. A great read for fans.
Me: Never mind....
