Books on Sale: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire & More

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire is $2.99! I love this series. The writing is so beautiful and I would happily send 300+ pages in the world McGuire has created. However, I will warn that these books have a haunting sadness to them and as romance readers, the HEAs we love aren’t the HEAs the characters want. (If that makes any sense without spoiling.)

Book Review

The Highlander by Kerrigan Byrne

The Highlander

The Highlander is a wackadoodle crazysauce “historical” romance. You can totally judge this book by its cover, which features a kilt, a partially unbuttoned shirt, a dress from the antebellum South, and the kind of sunset you only get after nuclear weapons have been discharged. I loved it to bits. The book has an extremely high squick factor, especially in the first two chapters. The prologue involves a disposable sex worker being disposed of. (Hello, … Continue reading The Highlander by Kerrigan Byrne

Kindle Daily Deal: The Highwayman by Kerrigan Byrne

Books on Sale: The Highwayman by Kerrigan Byrne & More

RECOMMENDED: The Highwayman by Kerrigan Byrne is $2.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and so far, it isn’t being price-matched. Redheadedgirl grabbed this at RT 2015 when it was held in Dallas. She reviewed it and gave it an A-:

What I liked best about this book was the liberal use of crazysauce. It’s a melodramatic tale of a broken man healed by the love of a good woman, and the good woman that’s strong enough to love this man and bring him back into the world. When he proposed the marriage idea, she’s like “Fine, but I want a baby so that’s my condition,” and he’s like, “but I don’t touch people so I didn’t really think this through,” “fine, then I’ll take a lover.” “I. WILL. KILL. HIM….”

“That’s not very solution-oriented.” (Actual quote!)
