When The Leaves Stop Falling by Kelly Moran

Five Stars...

What a wonderful, poignant, and bittersweet story, once you start reading you quickly find yourself totally immersed in the story making it almost impossible to put down until the very end. The authors unique style of writing really brings this story to life in a manner not often seen. Probably the closest comparison to her style of writing would be something by Nicholas Sparks. Ms. Moran is still new in her book writing career but after reading her latest book I really expect great things from her in the future.

Night Hunter by Cathy McDavid

Four stars.

Twenty five years ago Gillian's mother was brutally murdered by an unspeakable beast, and now after all these years the monster is back...
Night Hunter by Cathy McDavid is an interesting and very unique dark paranormal romance, that just gets better the deeper into the story you are. The evil beast Cadamus along with the gothic and horror elements add to the overall darkness of the story which ends with an unexpected twist that will hopefully lead to a sequel....

Every Twenty-five years the cycle begins anew-a legendary creature reawakens and preys upon the innocent. The police refuse to believe such a monster exists. But Gillian knows it's real. When she was seven, she watched in horror as it killed her mother. Now the beast is back... for her.

As the chosen Hunter, Nick is the only one who can destroy the creature. Yet a gorgeous psychology proffeesor keeps pushing her way into his investigation and into his most intimate fantasies. For her own protection, Nick's determined to stay by Gillian's side , every day and each delicious night. And meanwhile, the monster bides it's time...

The Fortune Hunter by Jasmine Haynes

I give it Five Stars

When it comes to erotic romance Jasmine Haynes sets the standard. Her characters are so very real and believable. The sex is hot and sizzling but never meaningless, and this her latest story is no exception. The plot of The Fortune Hunter (wealthy heiress meets fortune hunter) seemed more suited for a historical romance so I was pleasantly surprised at just how well it worked in a contempory setting.

Faith is the type of heroine that almost anyone can identify with. She's a very nice, normal sized woman who also happens to be a little insecure about her looks, and as a result doesn't always realize her own worth.

Connor as the not-quite reformed bad boy is the perfect hero and proves the old adge to be true that reformed bad boys make the best husbands. He's the kind of man who knows what he wants and goes after it, in spite of the fact that he doesn't believe in love it's very obvious that he quickly falls in love with his delightful new wife...

The Fortune Hunter isn't at all like your typical erotic romance, instead it's a hot, sweet, and very tender love story that will leave you believing in ever after long after the story ends.......

If she wants to realize her lifelong dream of having children, heiress Faith Castle had better find a husband-pronto. But there are two roadblocks on her road to happiness, she knows no eligible men, and she's not exactly Miss California.

Then she meets Connor Kingston. He's yummy. He's available. And he thinks she's sexy...

But he's also honest. After a kiss that leaves them hot and bothered Connor offers to marry Faith, but purely as a career move. It's far from romantic, but it's as good as an offer as she's going to get. Each has a caveat, though. She requires fidelity-and he wants a no-holds-barred sex life.

From their wedding night on, they get more and more adventuresome-and Faith starts feeling differently about herself and her body. And somewhere in the midst of ecstasy, she comes to know the most exciting aphrodisiac of all-love. Now, if only there was a way to make him sucumb to it...

The trilogy continues with Show And Tell coming July 2008 and Games People Play 2009
