With so much focus on the underwater characters, it’s disappointing that THE TEXAS SHIFTER’S MATE didn’t try to capitalize on the originality of its premise. This book should have had the word mermaid in the title. Zach and Shayla are torn between land and sea for most of the book, which makes their HEA that much more satisfying.

MER was a quick read with lovely art, a story that held my attention, but it left me with a number of questions at the end of the story.
SAILOR TWAIN is a sensuous experience, from the rough paper petting the finger tips to the soft, blurred images seducing the reader into it’s world. After the first, mysterious chapter, it was Captain Twain himself that was my anchor. Solid, loyal, hardworking… and so obviously drifting closer and closer to a maelstrom of seduction and magic.
When I got my hands on a copy of DEEP BETRAYAL, I was so excited to read more of the alien and tortured hero, Calder White. Brown’s ability to make him sympathetic without softening too many of his predator’s edges was one I my favorite aspects of LIES BENEATH.
We are excited to have MaryJanice Davidson stop by on her blog tour for her newest collection of stories in UNDEAD AND UNDERWATER out now from Berkley. During this interview we talk about villains ‘n stuff and learn a little bit more about MaryJanice. Along with this very entertaining interview there is a giveaway for a copy of UNDEAD AND UNDERWATER! The villains in the Undead and Underwater anthology are of the cackling, maniacal variety that the protagonist hardly finds intimidating. Is there a reason for that? Do you know anyone like that in real life? I think we… Read more »
This short story was incredibly cute and extremely hilarious. Hailey Derry has the type of superpower I would love to have where anything I eat can be transformed into super powered energy to fight crime with.
I love a good twisty supernatural mystery and RIVER ROAD delivers exactly that. Having two mysteries was even more exciting. I thought I’d have a hard time keeping track of everything but RIVER ROAD does a good job at weaving the two mysteries into a whole cohesive, riveting story in a setting that can’t be beat.
FATHOM reads like swimming in the surf. One minute I was paddling in the shallows, interested but not committed, the next I was taken by the current, swept away and unable to surface for anything less than the end.
I finished TIGER LILY with a gasp a goosebumps, head over heels in love with the characters and world that Anderson created. I was hesitant to start it, Tiger Lily was always a character that fired my imagination, but even my childhood daydreams couldn’t quite fit her happily ever after into the myth. In TIGER LILY, Jodi Lynn Anderson has given me the Peter Pan story I’ve always dreamed of, gorgeously written, intimate, and inspired.
My feelings for this book are a surprise and a delight. Despite a male protagonist, despite his murderous family and ill-intent, LIES BENEATH won me over as deeply and as surely as Calder seduced his way into Lily Hancock’s life.
