Review: Shadowed Stranger by Carole Mortimer (1982)

Heat Factor: Bruising kisses, plus one scene where they remove all their clothes (but don’t get far because Rick has broken ribs)

Character Chemistry: They bring out the worst in each other

Plot: Robyn falls for an older man, and then discovers he’s not who he says he is

Overall: If you dig dubcon kisses and predatory age gaps, then this was a quick and oddly compelling read

Review: Will & Patrick Wake Up Married by Leta Blake and Alice Griffiths (2015-2016)

Heat Factor: After a very sexy night in Vegas, it takes a couple episodes before they get busy again, but when they do, it gets kinky

Character Chemistry: I’m a sucker for “the grumpy jerk is secretly soft for the vulnerable sweetheart”

Plot: Will and Patrick wake up married, and they can’t just be unmarried because Will’s charitable trust is financed by his mob family who requires that the scions marry for love and forever

Overall: It’s a long ‘un, but I didn’t want to stop reading.

Review: Unicorn’s Instinct by Elva Birch (2023)

Daycare for Shifters, Book #3

Reviews of Daycare for Shifters Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Some boning with minimal details. 

Character Chemistry: Who wouldn’t want a hot pediatrician unicorn who does the dishes without being asked?

Plot: Fated mates, with an expiration date. And then everyone gets kidnapped.

Overall: A different look at the fated mates trope. I liked it.

Review: A Valentine for Christmas by Reese Ryan (2022)

Valentine Vineyards, Book #1

Heat Factor: Fade to gray? There’s some sex but we see more afterglow than details

Character Chemistry: Outstanding

Plot: Chandra and Julian are new to a small town, and they keep meeting—but Chandra insists they can’t have a relationship

Overall: It felt like a filler book
