I’ve heard of Elizabeth Lowell and I’ve seen many of her novels when visiting Barnes and Nobles but I’ve never had the chance to read any of her novels until I was given this hardcover novel of her most recent release. Perfect Touch is a heart-racing tale in which a former soldier turned rancher and a beautiful designer race to stop a vicious killer—a battle for survival that threatens to explode in an intense and irresistible passion. The novel begins with the heroine who is an art dealer and owner of her own design studio, Perfect Touch. Sara Medina travels the world to find the ideal artwork for her clients and has a sophisticated comfortable life in San Francisco is light years away from the poverty of her family’s dairy farm. Sara will do whatever it takes to keep her business strong and as a dedicated urban career woman focused on her work, she doesn’t have time or energy for a family or distracting romantic entanglements.

The Shadows by J.R. Ward

Title: The Shadows

Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group

I’m such a big fan of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series and so far there have 13 books published including the current release named The Shadows. We previously met the Shadow named Trez “Latimer” in previous books but he doesn’t really exist though it’s not just because his identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. His parents sold him to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, but Trez escaped the Territory. He has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years – all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on…except for his brother, iAm. It has been iAm’s sole goal for most his life to always keep his brother from self-destructing – and he knows he’s failed but it’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around…but by then it’s too late. The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating. Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others – or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything because staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice…that will change both of their lives forever.

In the book See Bride Run! By Charlotte Hughes you meet Atlanta’s Iron and Steel billionaire heiress Annie Hartford. She has no desire to marry a man she does not love, which is where the runaway bride part comes in. Annie’s very controlling father has been calling the shots her entire life but this time he has pushed her too far that she hijacks the family limo, only to have it break down in small town Pinckney, Georgia. Then Annie meets small town lawyer and restaurant owner Sam Ballard who has been unlucky in love as well with his own runaway bride. So the last thing he expects is Annie coming into town in a short waitress uniform and breaking every dish in his Dixieland Café since she only graduated high school and then finishing school. Still, he can’t very well fire her because she has won the hearts of everyone in town and he starts to fall in love with her but he doesn’t know if she will stay or go running back to her rich father.

Today I'm reviewing Grace Cooopersmith's debut novel Nancy's Theory of Style that I got a review copy of. If you have read Marta Acosta's Casa Dracula series you have met Nancy Carrington-Chambers since she is friends with Milagro de los Santos. I have anxiously been waiting for this release every since I interviewed Marta Acosta on my live podcast show, TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan, in September 2009 and she gave me a bit of the details to this novel as well as the 4th Casa Dracula book. We only got a glimpse of the lively, pretty young socialite Nancy Carrington-Chambers in the Casa Dracula series but in the start of this novel we start to get a bigger picture of what she is like. Nancy has always believed that an excellent sense of style and strict attention to detail are what it takes to achieve a perfectly chic life. Nancy is a woman of certain tastes and has lived a very privilaged life though has never really received any emotional comfort from her parents throughout her entire life. After she leaves her husband who has turned their McMansion into an unlivable place she’s determined to make her event planning company, Froth, a real winner, but her new prize assignment—reinventing the turgid Barbary Coast Historical Museum fundraiser—must be spectacular in every way. Luckily, Nancy now has the perfect assistant (which her husband sent her way) named Derek Cathcart who is British, impeccably dressed, gorgeous, and clearly gay—so why does Nancy find him so attractive?

I have read a couple of ebooks published by Wild Horse Press which include ebooks by Jessica Coulter Smith, Linda Palmer, Paige WarrenT.L. MitchellJ. L. Oiler and Julie Kimbrell. Today I will be reviewing Alexis Devuall’s debut contemporary erotic romance short story called, All Tied Up, which I was happy to get a copy to review. The heroine of the novel, Anna Dumont has had it with loser boyfriends which any woman out there can relate to in one way or another. So when her friend Todd issues a challenge for her to visit The Crystal Palace, and she accepts with a bit of doubt. Little does she realize she’s about to meet an amazing man and have a sexual adventure unlike anything she could have anticipated. I had fun reading this novel because it was a very hot and steamy story about a woman who finds that she needs to change the way she is living her life. I found that it was fun as well as erotic which is a nice combination when reading a short story and it left me wanting to find out if Alexis would end up writing more about Anna and the other characters that I came to enjoy in this novel. Alexis Duvall delivers a wonderfully erotic and exciting debut novel about a woman who after dating loser boyfriends finds a way to break out the wild woman that was inside her all along. I will be keeping an eye out for any of Alexis’s future books because after reading this debut novel I have a feeling her future books will be just as good or even better. I give this book 4 Open Books:

Here is the description of the book from Alexis’s website and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
