Spice by Jenna Jameson & Jamie K. Schmidt

#PornStar #CancerSurvivor #Boxer

From my podcast review:

If you were a really well known porn star and wrote a romance, what would that look like? Steamy? Edgy?

A Gentleman Revealed by Cooper Davis

#Victorian #GayRomance #AlternateUniverse

From my Amazon review:

Aaah, I SO wanted to love this one! When I saw a gay romance set in Regency England (where it wasn’t taboo and the story world was an alternate version of ours), I got really excited, and I dove right in as soon as I had the ARC in hand.

Set Ablaze by KC Burn

#GayRomance #FireFighter #Dancer

From my Amazon review:

Set Ablaze is a little darker than I’d expected, with heavy themes of homophobia and stalking. The story is overall well told, and the characters are interesting.

Saving Rayne by Susan Stoker

#MilitaryRomance #DeltaForce #StrongHeroine #Sociopolitical

From my Amazon review:

My first impression of this book was, ‘yes please, I’ll have some more’. This being my first peek at the writing of Susan stoker, I was excited at just how good this could get. This book has almost all the hallmarks of my ideal story.

Daughter of Draekons by Lili Zander & Lee Savino

#SciFiRomance #DragonShifters #ReverseHarem #Pregnancy

From my Amazon review:

Daughter of Dreakons is a fun little short set in the Draekon Mates story universe. You definitely don’t want to jump right in with this one, so start with Draekon Mate if you’re new to the series.

Fallen Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

#ContemporaryRomance #TattooArtists #SpinOffSeries

From my GraveTells review:

Fallen Ink is a fast-paced friends-to-lovers romance with heat and heart. And a whole lot of sexy ink.

Save Me by Cecy Robson

#ContemporaryRomance #BigFamily #StandoutHero

From my podcast review:

There were so many legitimate LOL moments. And I freaking ADORED Seamus’s personality.

Sinner by Sierra Simone

#EroticRomance #Biracial #Kinky

From my Amazon review:

In a time when the romance industry is in a period of upheaval about the lack of diversity in publishing, the book boldly features a biracial couple. And it’s no big deal. Love is love, and rich white guy Sean Bell doesn’t blink an eye at Zenny’s lovely dark skin or her choices to live simply.

Total Bravery by Piper J. Drake

#ContemporaryRomance #RescueDog

From my GoodReads review:

I had a hard time getting into this book and ultimately stopped at about 30%.

Ascension by Caris Roane

#ParanormalRomance #Vampires #Angels #BDB-like

From my Amazon review:

Released in 2010, this book has apparently been on my shelf for like 7 years. I’m so glad I finally read it! This is a strong angel/vampire story (vampires are angels in this story universe) that has a similar feel to J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Meghan: A Hollywood Princess by Andrew Morton

#ParanormalRomance #Vampires #Angels #BDB-like

From my Amazon review:

Gave me some fun facts to talk about in my Princess Fever podcast.
