This was a great book. Forget the kleenex, have a hankie that won't shred from the tears real close at hand. Nathan and Kerri's love story is marvelous, but it is the story of a mother's love for her dying child that tugs at your heart.
Life is tough enough these days for Lydia Smith, licensed Para-archaeologist. Seriously stressed-out from a nasty incident in an alien tomb, she is obliged to work part-time in Shrimpton's House of Ancient Horrors, a very low-budget musuem. She has a plan to get her career back on track, but it isn't going well. Stuff keeps happening
Take the dead body that she discovered in one of the sargohagus exhibits. Finding out that her new client is one of the most dangerous men in the city isn't helping matters either.
Beautiful heroine has every reason to avoid hero. He is an earl while she is of common birth--he will never offer marriage. He is a man of intrigue, perhaps playing both sides in a most perilous game. Worst of all, the arrogant, lethally charming rogue revels in his repulation as libertine, unrepentant of the many bedchambers through which he's romped and the many hearts he's broken.
A can't-put-down-book. Great characters, plot and dialogue. A psychic dream interpretor claims she can see other people's dreams. See insists she "saw" a murder. The San Francisco police detective thinks she may be involved in the murder and doesn't believe in the psychic world.
Soon Tabitha is running for her life and falling in love with Nate, the police detective who is protecting her.
Characters with challenges are very interesting, but the heroine, Gaby, in this book is so deep in a black hole, I couldn't feel much for her but pity, and at times disgust. She is abrasive, hateful, dirty, mean, and that's on a regular day.
On the back of the book Elizabeth Lowell offers: "One of the most intriguing heroines since J.D. Robb's early Eve Dallas." This was hard for me to understand, an avid Eve Dallas fan.
In Robb's books, you know what drives Eve Dallas: Justice!
Gaby, in Servant, comes across as a crazy, pathetic character. At the beginning, the author did not do a very good set up for the why Gaby is like the way she. Not until very late in the book do we get a glimmer of what she is about. I think that is because Foster is writing multiple books for this character's story and wanted to string the reader along.
Good vampire story. Be ready with a pile of kleenex for the last part of the book!
Prudence's young life is slipping away and she seeks the deliverance of the Grail--unaware that the cost of her search could be her soul. Chapel sought the Grail six hundred years ago, but found a hellish cup of damnation instead. Can he offer her which she most desires-the sensuous "gift" of forever that is both rapture and a curse: his immortal kiss?
Hot sex! Alpha male. Damsel in distress. A great romantic suspense book. Seth is one sexy male, and Raine is a great female counterpoint. Their lives and their future are on the line as they fight not only the villians but their attraction to each other.
Good read. Keeps your interest with private planes, gorgeous hotel suites, and a South Seas honeymoon. Sexy, powerful billionaire and a vulnerable heroine. A good twist on the marriage of convenience story.
"Scrambling to save her family's company, Emma McKinley was shocked when billionaire hotel magnate Alex Garrison tossed her a lifeline. It was a textbook marriage of convenience: he calls off her creditors; she gives him half her company.
But the elaborate game of make-believe soon became more intoxicating than either of them expected. Could a marriage built on a lie withstand the test of true passion?"
(Back cover blurb)
A modern-day Jack the Ripper walks the streets, and one woman must stop him--or beome his next victim.
Victoria Thomas is one of the FBI's criminal profilers, a career born of the tragic, unsolved murder of her younger sister. She's also a closet "Sherlockian," involved in a group that follows the famous English detective. This hobby leads her to London, to a symposium on Sherlock Holmes, where she finds unexpected passion...and a chilling murder mystery involving a modern-day Jack the Ripper.
He's murdering women and leaving clever, diabolical messages for Victoria to follow. He's teasing her, taunting her, daring her to find him. For he, too, is following his calling--answering the terrible demons of his bloodline, proving he is every bit as elusive as his infamous ancestor.
In the chilling BLOODLINE, Jill Jones weaves a spellbinding tale of icy suspense, haunting romance, and lost history, that spans from the time of Jack the Ripper in 1888, to this very day.
This is a book that I could not finish. It did not flow well. The dialogue was very disjointed and almost as if the character had many characters in her head speaking and acting for her. The heroine was not a likable character from the information given by the author. This is the first book in many years that I wanted to throw against the wall. Maybe someone else will find it interesting.
I dislike giving such a negative review, but the book after an interesting cover and back blurb did not hold my attention. The story could have been much better with a better editing job at the publishing house.
I know this book received many great reviews. But this was a book I couldn't get into. I've read many Brockmann books but this story kept jumping back and forth between 18 months before present day, to four months before present day, then present day, then back again and forward again. The jumping time periods in the major character's lives was disconcerting. Cuts down on the forward flow and the tension that needs to be built in a book such as this about terrorists and kidnappings.
