For an author can make us like someone so wicked takes real talent. For those of you who have not watched the t.v. series or read any of the books before, Have you been on another planet?. Dexter is a serial killer. This is the forth book in the series. We follow Dexter as he tries to keep his family unaware of his Dark Passenger. He works as a blood splatter analyst for the police. In this story someone has been making corpses into artworks. Dexter has just returned from honeymoon and has his Dark Passenger under control. This new killer will take all his attention.
If you have watched the t.v. series you might recognise some of the storylines ,but the books are SO MUCH BETTER.
MY HONORABLE HIGHLANDER.
by Nancy Lee Badger.
Haven MacKay is nursing a broken heart. She is determined to put behind her the man she dumped after finding out he was married ,with children. Her best friend has convinced her to help out at the Highland Games historical fair. Haven has a gift for healing and uses a lot of old potions and chants.
Kirkwall Gunn is a Highland chieftain on his way to his betrothed, with his clan protecting wagon loads of treasure to be used as the Bride price. In the middle of a battle he sees a beautiful woman who disappears back into the mist.
Haven is on her way back to her tent when she is chased by a cloaked figure ..She uses the storm to get away and lands in a place full of much more danger.
This story is good fun. Haven is a woman who doesn’t understand her own power. Kirk is a man who feels he has nothing left to lose.
Going by the ending I think there is another story to come. Featuring two of the secondary characters from this one.
If I could give it 10*s I would. What a great story. Time travel romance at its best. I don’t want to say too much about the storyline because that would spoil it for you. Needless to say if a handsome highlander tells you he has come through nearly 700yrs and suffered tight jeans just because you are his soul mate , but you have to go back to his time. Don’t waste time packing Go Go Go. I’m definitely going to read the rest of the series. MacKay series.
This is another great love story from Kathryn Le Veque. This one is a contempory romance not usually my flavour , but as it´s from one of my favourite authors I had to read it.
The hero Archer is a police detective. Who is also an Earl from a VERY proud line. The heroine Scarlett is an american song writer who is starting a new life with her two girls. There are some vicious murders that seem to revolve around Archer. Some of the locals are really nasty to the new family. I defy anyone to guess before the end who the killer is or why he kills. I was so shocked. The love story is the main focus but the suspense keeps you on edge. Certainly a good book to read. Well done Kathryn keep up the good work.
Elizabethan Romance. I have never read a book set in Elizabeth’s reign before. Its so interesting all the etiquette and the feelings came through beautifully in this story. For men of that era to be ruled by such a STRONG woman must have been so difficult. Nowadays we know from history that queens are great rulers but then it went so much against the grain. This story has many very emotive subjects covered. If only they taught history in schools like this. Pardon me for getting away from the book its just that it made me think so much what it must have been like to live in that situation. That has to be good I was transported to Elizabeth’s court for much more than a love story.I’m glad I have more by this author she knows how to move me.
An unusual medieval romance. It has more to do with the women of the household than the Lord.
Lord Roland Montgomery has come home after 10years at the Crusades. The child bride he married in name only before he left , has fled from his home accused of being a witch and a whore.
When he has her back in his control he must discover the truth. He has more problems to solve than he knows. Someone is working to destroy his family, maybe from within.
Veri has been brought up by the women who live in the woods and make their living healing or acting as midwives. They are often suspected of witchery. Veri saved Roland’s life When she was only a child and he swore to protect her.
This book gives us a glimpse into the sort of problems that could arise when there is no-one is left to command the household. Superstition can run riot and people put in danger.
A very good twist at the end.
