I am sitting here trying to write a review for a book and no words seem to be coming to me. It has been like this all day. I guess it is because I have been sick and just don’t feel like doing anything. So it got me to thinking, sometimes that can be a bad thing or a good thing. It just depends on the idea and if it will get me in trouble. I am curious as to what are your favorite books to read over and over, and what drew you to pick that book? I will begin with one of the first romances that I picked up. What initially drew me to it was the cover and I was looking for something around the house to read. The book was originally my Mother’s book and I found it in the laundry room when I went to put my clothes on to wash. The book was by KATHLEEN E. WOODIWISS WOLF AND THE DOVE. I could read this book over and over, in which I have. About seven times actually. I still own that paperback copy. It is almost falling apart, so I went to my local used book store and found a hardback copy.
Another book I can read over and over is all the DAVID EDDINGS GARION UNIVERSE SERIES. I could never get enough of these books. I have read each series several times. I love the different characters and the story. One of my favorite characters is Polgara. I love the white streak in her hair, and she is an awesome sorceress. I can also read all the Patricia BriggsMercy Thompson series, Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series, and the Kim Harrison Rachel Morgan series over and over.
I was raised for battle. And as the first daughter of a warrior family, I’ve earned my reputation the hard way. Yet now I fight alongside uncivilized male Northland dragons who think a female is only good for breeding and waiting back home in the cave. But it’s the foolish and foolhardy who would try to stop me, Rhona the Fearless, from doing what I do best—destroying the enemies of my kind.So the smartest thing wily barbarian Vigholf the Abhorrent can do for me is stay out of my way as we risk all on a deadly mission in enemy territory. I don’t care if he’s fascinated by me, even though he is as attractive as he is resourceful. He’s having far too much fun putting me in difficult situations and testing my sense of duty to the limit. And I’m going to enjoy challenging his insufferable confidence, outwitting his schemes, and making him surrender in the wildest ways. .
This is a great addition to the Dragon Kin series, with its sarcastic,dark humor will have you laughing out loud . The character development and story line are well-developed. Rhona and Vigholf are great together. Vigholf wants Rhona and has warned the other dragons away from her, but he has not made his feelings known to her yet. Rhona has helped raise her siblings when her mother would go off to battle, all she wants to do is follow in her father’s footsteps and be a blacksmith. Her mother wants her to be a commanding officer like her. this is one of those books that makes you laugh out loud, it has the perfect mixture of humor, sex, suspense and action. It will pull you in and not let you go until you have read the last page. The banter between Vigholf and Rhona is great. I loved reading THE DRAGON WHO LOVED ME, so I give it 5/ 5 stars. I recommend it to everyone to read it and the other Dragon Kin novels.
I was recently asked this question in one of my comments. They asked if I accept guest writers on my blog. Now, I have been thinking about this since I first started writing my blog. I knew it would be a way to get more content on my site and to help others to get more recognition for their writing. When you try to do all the writing yourself, sometimes it is hard to come up with fresh, and interesting material.
There is so many book reviews that you can do with out sounding like a broken record. If all you did was reviews, then your audience would get bored and move on to a site with something better. So having a guest writer or blogger will help in keeping your content fresh for the reader, and also keep you from getting a lot of headaches in trying to come up with new and better content. So, if you would like to become a guest writer on this blog, please leave me a message in the comments. I will then formally send you an invite to become a contributor to this blog. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
Griffin Cadogan is surprised when Avani Monroe, the sworn enemy of his dragon family, walks into his gym. With his mating phase approaching, the dragon shifter wonders why she risks coming into enemy territory. Yet the dark-eyed temptress shocks him even more with an outrageous demand: She wants him to help her have a baby.
After her mother’s dragon line was annihilated by the Knights, Avani vows to continue her unique dragon breed-and the registries indicate that Griffin is the best candidate. Determined to mate, Avani plans to use her seductive beauty and powerful scent to entice Griffin. The big, strong Welsh man will make for a fitting partner . . . if he doesn’t kill her first.
When they spar over the terms of her proposal, Griffin and Avani can’t deny the intense, primal attraction they feel for each other. But as they become closer to creating a child, the lovers can hear danger encircle them as loud as the clapping of wings. The dragon slayers are coming . . .and they’re gunning for Griffin, Avani, and the entire dragon race.

I was given this book by Netgalley.com to read for an honest review.
This is the first time I have read this author, Lolita Lopez. The story line and characters were well-developed and well paced. The characters of Griffin and Avani were very likeable and strong characters. The story hooked me from the first page, and before I knew it the story was done. I wish the story was longer, I wanted more. The men in the story were absolutely yummy. I cannot wait until the next book in the series. I recommend this book to everyone. I give this book a 5/ 5 stars.
Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal-even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets.
Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick…

Tate is the first human on the block, and gains insight about the residents while still holding on to her preconceived prejudices. She will have to learn to live peacefully with the residents and learn their rules and customs or she will have to leave. This was a really good read. The author brought a fresh and alternate society to life. It made you want more, when the story ended. I am currently waiting for the third book in the series.
I give this book a 5/ 5 stars. Here are the other books.
