Three very different stories, but each of them captured my attention and my heart. I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did!

Her Fated Cowboy by Donna Michaels


I loved this book, and actually read it twice. The characters are alive and real, with issues and fears that make them lovable and human. The setting description is beautiful, and I could picture myself there with them. Lovely, inventive sex scenes, and great secondary characters. I will definitely read the entire series, and I have Ms. Michaels on my favorite list.




Isabel’s Awakening by T.D. Hassett


I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Judging by the cover, I didn’t think it would be as hot as it was, but I’m really glad the heat was there! The story is well written, a light mystery that kept me guessing until the end. The hero is an English rock star, and his slang was fun to read. The heroine is a teacher, definitely quirky, and her literary reference for him were cute, and really gave us a peek into how her thought process worked.





Masque by Lexi Post

It’s based on Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death,” and takes place in current-day Nova Scotia, Canada. Rena is determined to reopen the abandoned, historic abbey as a haunted bed-and-breakfast. And wow, it’s haunted by a plethora of interesting ghosts! When Rena meets Synn, the caretaker, she’s speechless with lust. He’s a total hunk, but she doesn’t realize he’s not quite human. When he introduces her to the seven rooms, each with their own kinky sexual entertainment, she realizes he’s the living fantasy from all her sexy dreams and desires. If you’re a literary fan, you’ll love this one, and if you’re a fan of adventurous, salacious sex scenes, you’ve got to read it.

    Good idea to show us these books. I might try the first two but you can be a literary fan and not at all into EA Poe! I don’t enjoy gothic horror so that’ll be off my list. But I am sure some readers will enjoy it. That’s the great thing about books – there’s a reader for every book.

      You’re right Clare. I’m a little scared of Poe, too, but this one was like Soft Poe – hahaha – I just created a new genre!
