Short and Sweet Book Reviews - #53 - Kris Longknife: Bold by Mike Shepherd, Someone to Love by Mary Balogh

My book today come from opposite ends of the spectrum.  Kris Longknife: Bold is Science Fiction/Space Opera.  Someone To Love is Historical Romance.  Both were fun and interesting to read.

Kris Longknife: BoldKris Longknife: Bold by Mike Shepherd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wondered if Mike Shepherd was going to get his two female main characters together. For those of you who are following the Kris Longknife series you know that Vicky Petersburg has her own spin-off series. The two have been enemies but on their last meeting they called a truce. Vicky has undergone a big change and is working for the good of others instead of herself. Now Kris has been called to mediate between Vicky and her father. There is someone who does not what that to happen and both women have to watch their backs and try to escape being killed. This is a great wrap up of this part of the series. At the end it looks like this will be the last book but in an afterword Mike Shepherd let us know that Kris will be back but in a brand new story arc. After all Kris has a husband and baby now and that is always a game changer. This can stand-alone but starting at the beginning of the series keeps you up on all the back story.

Someone to Love (Westcott, #1)Someone to Love by Mary Balogh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in a new series and part of the fun in reading it was trying to guess which of the characters would be featured in their own story and get their own HEA. Anna Snow (Lady Anastasia Westcott) holds up her part the book in great style. She is her own person and will not change just to fit what fashions and relatives want to make her into. Avery Archer, the Duke of Netherby, is a very hard character to know. That fits as he hides his real self behind a protective wall. Not that he is to be ignored. In fact just the opposite. People notice and fear him. When Anna arrives she changes his whole world but not without some problems. A really nice romance with some great side characters. This is also the opportunity to start a series at the very beginning.
