The Bloodbound Review

The Bloodbound by Erin Lindsey introduces a female warrior in a realm of fantasy dominated by men.  What I appreciated most about the pace and plotline is that she wove the romance into the story almost seamlessly.  The Bloodbound is a perfect example of a clearly acknowledged romance plot without any gratuitous physicality.  And the romance in no way takes from the action, intrigue, and strength of the fantasy aspect of the story.

The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart Review

The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart is a thriller that borders on erotic.  Deacon is a dead man.  A dead man in a limited contract, but a dead man nonetheless.  Tess is a mortician.  In the nowhere location of Last Stop, Texas, threats of Russian terror attacks throw these two together in a way no normal circumstance ever could.
For the two years of their acquaintance, Deacon had been obliged to keep his alternative lifestyle secret from Tess.  And so she had been obliged to ignore the carnal desire that surfaced when Deacon entered a room.  Until Tess decided it was time to quit Last Stop and ply her trade in an urban environment.  That’s when Deacon’s boss, Eve Winter, charges him with the mission of getting Tess to stay put, however he can.
It’s a story of intrigue, of lust, of desire.  Liliana Hart crafts such a story that would please thriller fans, mystery fans, and romance fans alike.  She weaves the erotic deftly with the spy thriller storyline, leaving nothing gratuitous or out of place.  I could not put this book down, and I’m ready to get started on the next one.
