FrankenDom – Cailin’s Review

FrankenDom
FrankenDom by Robin L. Rotham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Do you love that cover? Mmmhmmm. Me, too. I wasn’t at Samhain to buy a book, but that cover caught my eye. After a glance at the description, I was sold. Now I have a new fictional Dom to adore.

This book kept me up reading last night. I just had to finish it. I really enjoyed the characters and BDSM aspects were luscious. Portions are still playing in my head, and that makes it worth keeping for me. I liked that there was variety in the BDSM scenes and that there were so many Doms. How many can one girl have? They kept coming out of the woodwork. With so many Doms available to set things up, Rachel the submissive of the story just can’t seem to escape the mind fucks.

I didn’t have a problem with suspending my belief on the transplanting procedure. It would be cool if they found a way for severed nerves to reconnect, and the means in this book was plausible to me. The medical story didn’t get in the way of the BDSM submissive training story or the romances in the book. I liked the way things settled out in the end, and I would really like a second book dealing with the brother’s life especially if he has to take on Rachel’s sister. Yowza!

I came away very satisfied from the read, but totally unsatisfied that I have yet to experience a violet wand and tingly tongue play. You’ll love the tingly tongue play in Frankendom.

A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing – Cailin’s Review

A Wolf in Wolf's Clothing
A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing by Deborah MacGillivray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this quirky paranormal romance. I loved the Big Bad Wolf and Red Riding Hood both. Yes, love strikes very quickly, and some may find that not realistic. But then what’s realistic about a clockwork gypsy’s fortunes being cryptic but correct every single time? There’s a lot of fairy tale references in this book, and it is itself a lovely fairy tale in which love triumphs. It’s light reading for when you need something to take you to a land far, far away. There are more books in this series. I started with this, number three. I’ll be adding the first two to my wishlist.

Scandalous Brides – Cailin’s Review

Scandalous Brides
Scandalous Brides by Annette Blair
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great deal. I love Annette Blair’s Rogues Club. I read Unforgettable Rogue as single book before buying this set. It’s worth the $.99 for this book alone. The scene where Hawk breaks the bed is one I’ve remembered since I first read it. Alex’s seduction of her husband is just fun to read.

A Lady by Chance by Cheryl Bolen is another good read if you’re willing to dispense with it being a realistic historical. The romance moves from two people who hate each other to happily ever after. And isn’t that what most of us want from a romance? Bolen does it with interesting characters, which is requisite for this type of story where you know how it will end just not how they’ll get there.

Salt Bride by Lucinda Brant has a complex plot with a villainess wrecking havoc on the lives of hero and heroine. Marriage comes early in this book, but begins with two hearts wounded by past wrongs. While love still hovers under the pain, the two must learn to trust again before it can come to full bloom. The villainess in this book is truly despicable and twisted. She uses anything and anyone to make events work to her advantage causing confusion and strife for all involved. Very good book.

The last title, Scandalous Virtue, is another terrific read. The story of Jack’s change from rake to respectable husband is fairly standard. The true spice of this novel comes from the heroine’s introduction to the more scandalous ways of the ton. Coming from a family and first marriage of extreme propriety, she decides to grab freedom and flirt with scandal. As Jack becomes more sensible, Nessa heads the other direction and takes the story into some interesting twists.
