Truth Or Dare by Syrell Starr

Truth or DareTruth Or Dare by Syrell Starr

Champagne Books

A simple game proves not so simple when an elementary school principal is forced to drop all her inhibitions for a man worthy of love.

What happens when a woman spins the bottle, then accepts both challenges of the truth or dare game?

Sheray Demsy is about to find out when she confesses that her most secret fantasy is to be seduced by a complete stranger. For her friends, it isn’t enough she tells them her desires, they dare her to experience her fantasy as well. So begins Sheray’s adventures with a stranger in the night.

I loved this highly provocative story. It brought back memories of playing Truth or Dare with friends but we never took it to such lengths. Every step of the story was written in a way that kept me on the edge of my chair and wondering what next.


A Man She Couldn’t Forget by Kathryn Shay

A Man She Couldn't ForgetA Man She Couldn’t Forget  by  Kathryn Shay

Harlequin Romance

Clare Boneli has felt like a stranger to herself ever since the night an accident took her memory. The night she made a choice between two very different men.

Both Brady Langston and Jonathan Harris are good men. But their versions of her are so opposite, it-s as if she-s two different people. One man holds her career future and one man seems to hold her heart. Because when she-s with Brady everything feels so true, so right. As she moves closer to the truth about that fateful night, Clare has to choose again. To stick with the life she-s made for herself. Or listen to what her heart-s been trying to tell her…

What a fantastic book. I found myself thoroughly engrossed by the story in A Man She Couldn’t Forget. As I read, I kept thinking about the television show Samantha Who? and her retrograde amnesia along with the movie Regarding Henry which the book refers to. Ms Shay did a fabulous job of research when it came to her subject matter. Not only about the subject of amnesia but also in regard to the recipes used as Clare cooked.

Then word comes in of a serious threat to Thisbe from a wolf pack, and Malcolm has to spirit her out of London to his employer’s mansion deep within the territory of a master vampire who has a price on his head. Malcolm was never good at playing nice with others of his own kind.

How To Ruin Christmas For A Vampire

July 24, 2009

I’m enjoying Christmas in July so I figured I’d do a few more wintery reviews.


HowToRuinChristmasHow To Ruin Christmas For A Vampire by Crymsyn Hart and Dahlia Rose

Phase Books

A hot and feisty next door neighbor leads Jarreth to decimate the gingerbread men with gumdrop buttons littered his lawn. The cold of many lonely winters has frosted his eternal heart, until Diana strolls in with her garish Christmas music, which he can’t stand. He denies his feelings for her, until he finds Diana is threatened by his old vampire flame.

Throwing aside the vow never to love again, Jarreth steps in and saves her only to find out he could lose her one again.

How To Ruin Christmas For A Vampire is a classic example of a love hate relationship. I just loved reading this story. Jarreth is my perfect vampire except for his allergies to wool and Diana Kringle is what I consider to be the prefect holiday character taken to Clark Griswald of Christmas Vacation level.

The Wild Rose Press

Leah Barnett’s travel to research a romance novel sends her back two hundred years–right into the bathtub of one hunky half Scot, half English male. His chauvinist attitude stiffens her spine, but his sensual kisses weaken her knees. Not to mention flipping her heart like a kilt in the wind.

Alistair MacKinnon’s vow to stay out of trouble falls by the wayside when a sensual, outspoken woman falls into his tub out of nowhere. Her insistence that she’s from the future doesn’t cause him as much concern as the way his heart thuds just looking at her. He’s finally found a woman who sees eye-to-eye with him–even if she does only reach his chest.

When Alistair orders the headstrong Leah to marry him to keep his despicable cousin from taking her to bed, the Scottish-English hottie gets a talking to that singes his ears. But it’s not his ears that sting when they find a portal to the future for Leah.

The Wild Rose Press

There has never been a hint of romance between long time buddies, Sara Sampson and Buck Weston–at least not as far as Sara knows. Buck, on the other hand, has wrestled with his strong feelings for her for a while now. Only his fear of losing their precious friendship makes him keep his heart’s desire locked deep inside the relaxed, carefree exterier.

When Sara’s father dies and stipulates in his will that she must marry Buck’s older brother, Cord, or lose her life’s goal– controlling interest of the Cattle Enterprise that is the Double B– Buck’s left with two choice: risk his heart and best friend by telling Sarah how he feels or stand by and watch the love of his life marry his brother in order to secure what she has worked so hard to earn.

Will Sara choose to marry for love of the land or will she wake up in time to realize the one man who’s always had her back, also has her heart?

Best friends forever. You grow up together, best friends. Just like brother and sister. When you do everything with each other, you sometimes forget to look and see what’s under your nose. That is pretty much the story here.
