Review: Indigo by Beverly Jenkins (1996)

Heat Factor: It’s pretty steamy for a reasonably standard old school historical romance 

Character Chemistry: Galen makes Hester feel things. He also thinks she’s arresting.

Plot: Slave catchers are roving around, looking for our protagonists, in antebellum Michigan

Overall: The work this book does is really something special

Review: Mine to Keep by Rhenna Morgan (2020)

NOLA Knights, Book 3

Review of NOLA Knights, Book 2

Heat Factor: It’s not not descriptive (he really likes to go down), but I wasn’t bowled over by heat or quantity

Character Chemistry: He paid attention to what I like and wants to take care of me when no one else did, so I guess it won’t take me too long to get over his outrageously domineering behavior…

Plot: Bonnie’s family disappears, so she calls the only friend she’s got, knowing her friend’s husband will get involved. Bonnie doesn’t realize that by activating the NOLA Bratva, she’s just gotten herself claimed by a mountain of a man.

Overall: I was certainly entertained, but not blown away

Review: Venom by Dee Garcia (2019)

Rosewood Realm, Book 1

Heat Factor: Kinky blood stuff, plus both protagonists bone secondary characters. Plus incest.

Character Chemistry: A rebound situation if there ever was one.

Plot: Captain Hook is a vampire who is obsessed with Tinksley Bell. Tink is in love with Peter Pan. When Peter leaves and Tink is depressed, Hook helps her recover and also embrace her inner darkness. 

Overall: I don’t even know what to tell you.
