Seeking sanctuary amidst a ragtag clan of shifters has never been so dangerous…or so fun.

Famous in the book-blogging world for her honestly hilarious romance reviews, mountain lion shapeshifter Nina Vidal detests the irony of her life—she makes a living off of analyzing happily-ever-afters, but her own HEA is sadly out of reach. To escape the heartache of staying in her pride and watching all of her friends pair up, she seeks refuge in another clan of shifters, not caring that the grumpy alphahole, Jameson, doesn’t want her there.

Grizzly shifter Jameson Cooper has enough on his mind without worrying about the sexy lion girl who’s taking over his clan. He’s alpha of the Rock Creek Clan, and he’s still mourning the loss of his mate. But there’s something about Nina—she’s the one person who won’t tolerate his bossiness or his angst, and he finds himself drawn to her again and again. When it turns out that vampire trouble has followed her from the Corona Pride and Jameson’s clan wants to turn Nina away, Jameson must fight to keep her.

Film Review: Romantics Anonymous

romantics-anonymousSomeone recommended Romantics Anonymous (original title: Les émotifs anonymes) to me ages ago–and then it sat in its Netflix envelope next to my television for weeks. Finally I opened the envelope again and read the description. I saw “chocolatier” and I was sold.

This isn’t my usual aliens-taking-over-the-world escapist kind of movie. Lately I haven’t had much patience for slow-paced anything. But this was funny and awkward and oh, so endearing. Characters’ social anxiety is always great fodder for funny, awkward moments, and sometimes I worry that social anxiety is being made light of. However, I didn’t feel that the film was taking advantage of people with anxiety–rather, showing how people overcome difficulties and still manage, however fumbling, to find each other.

I don’t want to spoil the ending, but there’s a point near the climax where she has an argument against their relationship that felt so real and true, but then there was a rebuttal that was equally real and true. I thought this was masterfully done!

Savage Loss, Available Now!

Resisting desire is futile in the Corona Mountains.

Elementary school principal Brigitte Mayfair has worked hard to keep herself cool, professional, and detached after the scandal she left behind in Michigan. But when she’s abducted from campus and released three days later with no memory of her captivity, she feels anything but cool and professional. Especially when a drop-dead gorgeous rescuer begins to rekindle her buried passions.

Mountain lion shapeshifter Rafe Corona hasn’t been serious about a woman…ever. He’s purposefully kept his distance from all potential mates, believing that he doesn’t deserve happiness. Something about Brigitte calls to him, though. He must overcome the danger that threatens to keep them apart and find the passion hidden within them both, or risk losing her forever.

Book Review: Prime Minister

prime-ministerPrime Minister, by Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller, is a contemporary erotic romance.

Some readers complained that they got bored midway through, and it’s true that the pacing isn’t super tight–however, I was riveted by the characters! Ellie and Gavin had me cheering for them from the very beginning! Especially fun was the first third or so, when they were figuring each other out. Obviously the prime minister couldn’t come right out and tell her he was kinky.

There’s a LOT of sex in this one and it’s at turns hot and funny. It broke some of my preconceived notions about kink, and I always love a book that challenges my beliefs about sex and sexuality.

Gavin’s best friend makes for excellent sequel bait, so I’ll be reading the next book in the series, Doctor Bad Boy, soon!
