In a way, Between the Lines had a lot to live up to for me, which it totally did. I loved the first book in the series, Perfect Day, and because the genuine emotion behind the book was what caught me then, I knew there wasn’t a great risk this time. This is Malcolm’s strong suit: she lingers in the emotions in a genuine and heartfelt way that is also unflinching and I love it.

Review: Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Vol. 4

The latest volume of Cleis's Best Women's Erotica of the Year series is big and bold and immensely satisfying. This collection is as diverse as it is exciting - familiar and new, kinky and sweet, fierce and tender - and filled with women from across the spectrum of life's experiences. It's a good thing the book is long, because each story leaves you hungry for more.

Review: Paper Love, by Jae

Paper Love, Jae's latest f/f romance, is set in southwestern Germany, in the Black Forest area famous for that decadent cake. It's a book firmly set in place, with attention given to architectural, cultural, and culinary distinctions. When I looked up the city after reading the book, the images were very much like I had imagined, with cobbled streets and little man-made streams (Bächle) in the middle of the walks.

Unusual Historicals: Best Bets for Nov. 2018

I love the ease of digital reading and online shopping, but when it comes to browsing I still struggle with missing the experience that brick and mortar retailers provide.  Case in point, looking for historical romances published in November 2018 on The ‘Zon netted me a bunch of books with half naked women on the covers with “Daddy” in the title.  Um, not what I’m looking for - thanks for that Amazon. Anyway, in between the combination of averting and rolling my eyes, I did uncover some intriguing sounding historicals - none of which had “Daddy” in the title.

Review: Better Not Pout, by Annabeth Albert

Every time we read a book, we are hoping that it will fit our mood because you want to be fair to a book. Reading something that doesn’t match your mood can feel like required high school reading at the worst of times. And I want to be very clear that Better Not Pout is not in any way like required high school reading, but it did not fit my mood, so your mileage will vary.

Better Not Pout is an opposites-attract and age-gap romance between Nick, a retiring Army MP, and Teddy, a man who runs a charity in his small town. They are brought together when Nick is asked to play Santa Claus for the charity. When Teddy ends up rescuing a stranded Nick from a snowstorm, they both give into their mutual lust. However, Nick does not want more than that because he’s retiring and will be leaving town, and Teddy is twenty years younger. So, they enter into a sex-only arrangement for a month. Except it’s never just sex.
