Review: Immortal Born by Lynsay Sands (2019)

Argeneau Series, Book #30

Heat Factor: Excepting that they have to stay joined for a half hour, it’s not super sexy

Character Chemistry: A little bit of fated mates, so we’re so-so here 

Plot: Immortal flies in to meet his maybe life mate, is embroiled in all her problems with other rogue immortals

Overall: I was so delighted by the Argeneaux that I am gutted that this book relies on a homophobic characterization

Gallaghers of Ardmore, Book 1

Heat Factor: It’s very poetical.

Character Chemistry: Some of their interactions made me uncomfortable.

Once Upon a Con, Book #1

Review: The Revolutionary and the Rogue by Blake Ferre (2020)

Heat Factor: The fire is banked.

Character Chemistry: It’s that snapping, snarling: “I hate you and everything you stand for, so why am I so horny around you?”

Plot: Trying to keep everyone’s heads attached to their bodies during the Reign of Terror

Overall: This book would have benefited significantly from better editing.

Review: The Billionaire Needs a Bodyguard by Ravina Hilliard (2020)

Heat Factor: Spicy enough

Character Chemistry: He berates her and does angry seduction and she melts under his caresses, so you know I am ALL about it

Plot: She’s his bodyguard, but he thinks she’s an escort/con artist

Overall: Once I started pretending this book was published in 1980, my enjoyment increased dramatically
