Book Review:  River Road (#2 Sentinels of New Orleans) by Suzanne Johnson

Book Review: River Road (#2 Sentinels of New Orleans) by Suzanne Johnson

~Book Review~ River Road takes off  years after Katrina’s wrath opened up the borders between our world and the Beyond.  DJ (Drusilla Jaco) continues to face challenges being the only Green Wizard in New Orleans. Suzanne Johnson as created an original story with vivid characters on every page.  River Road is an Urban Fantasy with a dash of flirtation and a BAM! of humor.  (What? Isn’t BAM now officially a measurement?)  Maybe I need to stop watching so many cooking shows! With temperamental mermen, a sexy shifter partner, a wild card loup garou, one seriously sexy undead pirate, and a scantily clad… Read more »

Book Review:  Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood #2) by J.R. Ward

Book Review: Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood #2) by J.R. Ward

~Book Review~ I will admit that I am late to the J.R.

Mary Luce considers herself ordinary and a survivor, but can’t comprehend why the beautiful Rhage becomes fascinated by her. A stunningly beautiful story laced… Read more »
