Short and Sweet Reviews #2
I still have very limited and slow internet so again no links or graphics.
Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop – A further development of the conflict between humans and others. This brings additional characters into the main story line. Don’t look for that much about the developing relationship between Meg and Simon. They are too busy trying to save at least part of the world they know. A great addition to the series but do not start here. Go back and start with Written in Red for full enjoyment.
Bitter Bite by Jennifer Estep – Gin finds a folder from Fletcher that reveals an unexpected enemy. That enemy is a threat to Finn and as the plot develops Gin finds that there are things she has never know about her home town. A good addition to the series with hooks to the next book. Gin as usual is a great character. Like most series it is best if you start at the beginning.
Once a Rancher by Linda Lael Miller – A new series with a great cast of characters. The Carson brothers are ripe for a romance. While very close they are also very different. This is Slater Carson’s story and it has a wonderful romance and a great HEA. Like many Harlequin series the books will stand alone but if you get started here you will not miss any of the things that happen to each of the brothers.
The Caphenon by Fletcher Delancey – What happens when the ship from a star faring planet crash-lands on a planet on the brink of developing their own space travel. Add in the fact that the ship crashed because it was in a battle with another group planning to conquer the planet. Throw in two alien cultures trying to adjust to each other, great characters, a lot of tension and the every present danger for a very exciting plot. Delancey has put a new twist on several old themes. The Caphenon is a interesting character driven story and is also the start of the series. Once I have good wifi I will be off to buy the next book.
