Review: Vonnie Davis’ A Highlander’s Obsession features men in kilts, shifters, and animal communicators

imageA Highland shape shifter, an American animal communicator, an eccentric grandmother – all add up to one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve had in a very long time. 

Vonnie Davis’A Highlander’s Obsession, the first book in her new A Highlander’s Beloved series, is just one of the most perfect stories. It doesn’t hurt that the bear shifters have brogues and wear kilts, that there’s a bit of mystery and suspense, some steamy love scenes, a great deal of laughter. Yes, this is a book that I highly recommend for anyone who’s looking for that perfect alpha hero …

Tasty Tuesday Review: The Nourished Kitchen by Jennifer McGruther

imageIt’s the rare cookbook that reads like a life’s journey, but The Nourished Kitchen by Jennifer McGruther reflects the farm-to-table approach to cooking that many of us adhere to.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I requested this book for review. Would the recipes be ones I’d read, reflect on, try, and adopt or would this be more of a fad-type cookbook. I was thrown, frankly, by the fact that it was a best-seller in the Raw Food category. Yes, I was a vegetarian for many years, a vegan for some of those, and did try out a raw …

Review: Laura Simcox’s Various States of Undress: Carolina is a fun, flirty, and touching read!

imageEach week I troll the Amazon lists to find books that are free or almost free for the Friday Feeding Your eReader post. I don’t highlight every book I stumble across. Far from it. These are books I’ve actually read and loved, are by authors I follow and/or have had recommended to me by people I trust. This week, I included Various States of Undress: Carolina by Laura Simcox. No, I hadn’t read any of her books before, but I had heard fun things about this book and, as it was on sale, included it. Then I read it …

Monday Musings: A look back to the beginnings of Fab Fantasy Fiction

In just about two months, Fab Fantasy Fiction will be celebrating it’s first official blogoversary. When I say official, while I may have been inspired to start the blog back in January 2011, but that’s all it really was – an inspiration – a gleam in my eye.

WOW! I guess, that this blog had an even longer gestation period than an elephant (their average is 645 days) and this was two years and a few months!

If you’ve ever wondered why this blog exists, look no further than Kim Harrison. Why? It’s her The Hollows series that really inspired

Review: Shiloh Walker’s Secrets & Shadows is a must-read suspense series

imageShiloh Walker’s new romantic suspense series, Secrets & Shadows, is an amazingly powerful read. With an invitation to read and review the second book, Sweeter Than Sin (to be released Sept 30, 2014), I had to, of course, gather the three introductory novellas and first book to read first. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I certainly didn’t anticipate disappearing into Burn For Me and not surfacing until I completed Sweeter Than Sin.

I know I’m hooked on Shiloh Walker’s FBI Psychic series. If there’s a new title, I remind everyone not to bother me until …
