Review: Goddess of the Hunt by Tessa Dare (2009)

The Wanton Dairymaid Trilogy, Book #1

Heat Factor: The wardrobe scene is incendiary

Character Chemistry: I am so in love with you, don’t even try to talk sense to me. In fact, we don’t need to talk at all.

Chestnut Creek #3

Heat Factor: It’s not like a bell pepper but I certainly wouldn’t call it a ghost pepper either.

Plot: Lorelei West and Reese St. James learn their respective siblings died in a car accident leaving behind a surprise baby. Together they have to figure out how to navigate both their new responsibility and their budding feelings for one another.

Overall: It’s a classic “poor woman saved by rich guy” type situation with a lot of curveballs.

Plot: Prince goes looking for priceless lost heirloom in the United States and ends up in a small-town antique dealer’s shop looking for help. Small-town shop owner agrees to help but has her own secrets.

Overall: I just couldn’t buy into this one–the characters seemed to kind of bump along and I never believed they’d really be happy in the end.

Planet of Desire, Book 4

Heat Factor: She has three clitorises! Uh… three clitori!

Character Chemistry: Graven is awkward and thoughtful and it’s pretty cute.

Plot: “I will heal you with my magic vagina!” Literally, not figuratively. 

Overall: I had some qualms.
