Weekly Reads

I think we can all agree that sometimes, just sometimes a book that doesn't require too much participation from the reader is just what one needs. Both of the "books" I've read recently fit that bill nicely.

A midnight encounter between two estranged lovers rekindles a passion beyond their wildest dreams... 

Rowena, Countess of Northam, is surprised to find her former suitor has returned from India and is on his way to the very house where she is staying. When he appears in her room late at night, she can only believe it is a dream. Her fantasy soon becomes reality when Simon makes every effort to seduce her. 

Despite his six year absence, and the fact that Rowena married his best friend, Simon is determined to have her back now that she is a widow. It soon becomes clear that while her body craves his affections, she doesn't trust him enough to give her heart. Can Simon forget her past betrayal and convince her to surrender to the greatest love they've ever known?

Ok....so this was more of a novella than a book. And calling it a novella is stretching it a bit. It comes in at just under 70 pages BUT despite all that, this title was really well written. The characters were well developed and the interaction between Simon and Rowena was nothing short of HOT. This is absolutely a title I would recommend to those looking for something to read during a summer afternoon.

Set in the world of the bestselling title Legend Beyond the Stars, an erotic novella about two warriors who have lost the ability to desire, and the human woman who is about to wake them up. 

Fran must have been crazy to leave her ordinary, safe life and volunteer as a colonist to terra-form a new earth. Now she is trapped in a prison cell on an alien planet a zillion miles from home and bound for a hideous death in notorious research chambers. 

She has one chance of escape: awaken the long dormant sexual urges of the Darkon Warriors shackled in the next cell. 

It’s a desperate job, but someone has to do it.

This one was weird. Another novella, but shorter. It felt like it was an oddly extracted excerpt from a longer title. I was definitely left feeling unsatisfied (no pun intended) and wanting more.

And for the record, even though we know was the heroines name is because it's noted in the synopsis, I found it incredibly annoying that on the last page of the story is when her name is revealed in an "Oh, by the way, you can call me Fran" kind of way.
