Series Review: The Wrath & the Dawn / The Rose & the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

“Love is a force unto itself, sayyidi. For love, people consider the unthinkable…and often achieve the impossible. I would not sneer at its power.” I received a copy of The Wrath & the Dawn last year when I attended the Romantic Times convention.

Blog Tour: Descended (The Red Blindfold) by Rose Devereux

Blog Tour: Descended (The Red Blindfold) by Rose Devereux

Review The first book in Rose Devereux’s Red Blindfold series, Descended, Book 1, is highly addictive. Once I started it, I found myself reading it in the middle of the night until I finished it. Both Sophie and Marc are very complex characters, and their relationship attracted me more than the erotica within. Sophie Quinn is an American journalist in […]
