White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2) by Ilona Andrews #BookReview
What was a more-than-two-year wait for eager readers spanned mere months for Nevada, and she (albeit unwillingly) jumps right back into the fray with her favorite-unfavorite grumpy mage. There is literally never a dull moment in this story. Every scene with Connor Rogan treks deeper into his why, the experiences and decisions and consequences that made him this borderline-psychopathic juggernaut of a mage. Once you learn how overwhelmingly good the core of his character is, his darkness becomes even more appealing.

Author Amy Lane on what makes Green’s Hill so special #Quickening #LittleGoddess #UrbanFantasy
If you're a fan of urban fantasy and you haven't read Amy Lane's Little Goddess series, you MUST check it out. The series has a lot of similarities to Laurell K.

But that's what makes this series dynamite. Author Amy Lane is here today with some personal perspective into what makes Green's Hill (the series' home base) so very addicting.

Wanted & Wired (Tether #1) by Vivien Jackson #BookReview #ScifiUrbanDystopian #CyberpunkRomance
Straight up, you won't find many stories like Wanted & Wired in the romance market right now, although I wouldn't be surprised if the Tether story universe inspires a thriving new cyberpunk romance sub-genre. This story is steeped in diversity—racial, bio-mechanical, sexual, sub-genre—you name it, and Wanted & Wired just might have it. Readers who fancy the sci-fi and fantasy greats—Han Solo, Captain Mal, Isaac Asimov... you get the picture—will lust after this snarky, femme-strong romance that simply cannot be categorized by genre boundaries.
