Captive Love: A story of love, obsession and possession (Friends, Family and Love Book 1) by Joni Martins

The premise of Captive Love by Joni Martins is terrifying.

Finding herself bound hand and foot, she struggles to put together the pieces of her recent past. Her first instinct is to attempt to undo the ropes that … Continue reading Captive Love: A story of love, obsession and possession (Friends, Family and Love Book 1) by Joni Martins

“Her Deception” M.M.Mayfield

I enjoy a book that takes me by surprise, and Her Deception by M.M. Mayfield fits the bill. From the first page when Patrice Strickland overhears her husband, Hugh, order a “hit” the story takes off, and the action and suspense continue throughout. Patrice wasn’t always the prim and proper wife of philanthropist Hugh Strickland. In order to work her way through college, she worked … Continue reading “Her Deception” M.M.Mayfield

Love Is In the Air: “View From the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale”

When I started writing this book it was primarily to present a different angle on the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963 on the streets of Dallas, Texas.  For years I had believed the shooting was a conspiracy and believed it was likely accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent. I’m not an historian and while I read extensively about the events … Continue reading Love Is In the Air: “View From the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale”

Love Is In the Air: Romantic Thrillers

I love romantic thrillers. Nothing gets me going like a good thriller with some love and even a little sexiness tossed in to steam things up. My list of romantic thrillers or even horror stories with love and romance tangled in is quite extensive. Unfortunately many of those are by well known published writers. They get plenty of publicity without my two cents. So here … Continue reading Love Is In the Air: Romantic Thrillers

Jean Gill – Renaissance Woman in a Modern Age

When I think of Jean Gill the word “renaissance” immediately comes to mind. I don’t mean the renaissance of the 12th century (the time period in her latest series) which was more social, political, and economic. Jean is like the renaissance of the 14th through the 17th centuries. Often considered the link between the Middle Ages and Modern History, the renaissance saw the “rebirth” of … Continue reading Jean Gill – Renaissance Woman in a Modern Age

“A Fine Balance” by Robyn Cain

A Fine Balance by Robyn Cain My rating: 4 of 5 stars From the first chapter Robyn Cain sets the tone for a story of corporate intrigue and cold blooded greed.
