MIA for the next little while

Hi, everyone,
I'm scheduled for surgery, which will hopefully only require a one night stay in the hospital.  Hopefully, I can be back and posting within the next week or so.  I'll just be glad, when it is over.

Review of RED'S HOT COWBOY


                                                             May be purchased here.


RED'S HOT COWBOY
Carolyn Brown

On Christmas Eve, Pearl Richland is just settling in to the motel, that she inherited from her aunt, when a blackout in a portion of Henrietta causes her motel to fill up.  Among the guests is a handsome cowboy, Wil Marshall, who looks to be a bad boy.  Because of this, Pearl vows to steer clear of Wil, but the attraction between these two is a force to be reckoned with.

RED'S HOT COWBOY is an entertaining, contemporary romance, which the title captures to a tee.  Wil Marshall is one hot cowboy, who might appear to be a bad boy, but has many admirable qualities.  Pearl, who has a reputation for being a party girl, has a hot temper, but a really good heart.  The fact that Pearl helped an abused woman makes her an admirable character.  RED'S HOT COWBOY is filled with quirky, endearing characters, who made this reader want to visit Henrietta.

Note:  I received this book in return for an unbiased review.

Review of THE LADY OF THE STORM


                       THE LADY OF THE STORM can be purchased at Sourcebooks.

THE LADY OF THE STORM
Kathryne Kennedy

Cecily Sutton, who is half-elf and half-human, has lived a fairly uneventful life in a small village in England.  Around the time of William the Conqueror, England was invaded by seven elven lords, who each took a portion of England as their own.  The elven lords are cruel and have subjugated the humans.  Because of this, there is an active rebellion.  When Cecily's village is attacked, she uses great powers, which she has kept hidden, to save the village.  Unfortunately, that use of power brings her to the attention of Breden, her elven biological father.  Giles Beaumont, who has been charged with keeping Cecily safe, must take her to the leaders of the Rebellion, and they must seek Cecily's adoptive father, who has gone missing.

THE LADY OF THE STORM is an enjoyable fantasy romance with plenty of adventure and complex and intriguing world building.  Ms. Kennedy creates an awe-inspiring world, which draws the reader in and keeps the interest high throughout.  Giles and Cecily make a wonderful couple, who must overcome, not only physical obstacles but emotional ones, in order to be together.  At first, Giles doesn't consider himself, the son of a blacksmith, good enough for Cecily.  The class distinction means little to Cecily, who must overcome her own insecurities.  Just when it seems these two can, finally, be together, they are torn apart and must struggle to be together.

Filled with spectacular descriptions and imagery, THE LADY OF THE STORM makes a great read for the lover of fantasy romance, and I highly recommend it.  The next book in this series can't come out soon enough!

NOTE:  I was given this book in return for an impartial review.
