Affinity's 2014 Christmas Collection
Various Authors

02/27/2018
Margaret Burris
I liked this anthology, especially since it is free. The Sweepstake story by Jen Silver was good, well written and interesting. Ali Spooner's Big Sky Christmas was okay, but had lots of grammatical errors. I have not read any books about these characters before, so that made it really hard to follow, since I didn't know who was who. Fran Heckrotte's Death was a well written interesting story and lighthearted in an intense way. Annette Mori's elf story was really cute and charming. And JM Dragon's Sleigh Bells was also good. From a literary perspective, Fran's story was the most well written. In terms of enjoyability, I think I liked Jen Silver's and Annette Mori's stories the best. Like most anthologies, you won't like everything, but you can usually find at least a few things to enjoy. Out of the five stories, I think all of them were worth reading....


Unconventional Lovers
Annette Mori

02/04/2018

Annette Mori has surpassed herself in what I believe is her best book yet. ‘Unconventional Lovers’ is beautifully written, uplifting and sensitively told and had me smiling from ear to ear. There are two love stories in the novel - one slow-burning but ultimately such a satisfying and romantic tale. Olivia and Deb are not on the same page when it comes to making a commitment or even admitting their feelings. I loved how their friendship grew into something I hoped it would. Bri and Siera are two very special young women who find each other unexpectedly and complete the other person. Their relationship was conveyed in such a tender and understanding way that I defy anyone to leave this book without shedding a few tears. I loved it. 5 stars are not enough!...


Death Is Only the Beginning
JM Dragon

10/07/2017

I really loved ‘Death Is Only The Beginning’ by JM Dragon as it is a wonderful mixture of mystery, humour and romance.  Millicent Parker is a code breaker during WW2 and spends her weeks in London and her weekends with her lover Charlie in the country.  When she dies in an accident and finds herself bound to Violet Reed, the driver of the car, things start to get very interesting.  Was it really an accident? As the pair begin to investigate they realise that they must deal with Charlie and private investigator Pru who are also looking into the mystery.  Charlie was my favourite character as she was caring, strong and so loveable and I wanted her to find happiness.  The bickering between Milly and Violet was laced with a fair amount of sexual tension - but would they ever admit to that? The story was a very unusual scenario and full of surprises.  It was also set in an English village which, in my mind, is the perfect place for a mystery. I want more of these characters and can see this becoming a well-loved series of books.  Highly recommended.

Refraction Series
Angela Koenig

08/15/2017
Karen McIntosh
This trilogy is utterly brilliant! Angela Koenig has written a gripping series of novels following Jeri O’Donnell from the troubles in Ulster, to the Himalayas and onto Yugoslavia when the Balkan war was in full force. Her life is one of violence, tragedy and keeping hidden from those out to capture her. When she meets Kelly Corcoran, an American tourist seeking peace, she finds a love that changes her. Their connection was intense, beautiful and at times frantic and joyful. Can they survive the dangerous life they lead? Is love enough?

The writing was intelligent and poetic and managed to convey a sense of history that pulled me into the story and made me feel as if I was right in the midst of it all. Jeri is a very complex character and her journey is one that I am so glad I followed. The love story woven throughout is deep and vital and one I won’t forget. I highly recommend this trilogy and wish I could give it more than 5 Stars.

The Bee Charmer
Ali Spooner

08/14/2017

The Bee Charmer is one of those books to wallow in, to enter a world gone by. Nat is a trader and trapper who finds her life turned upside down when her father dies. She meets beautiful widow Marissa in town and is torn between her love of the wild and her feelings for this woman. Their story and that of their friends is beautifully told, with such wonderfully descriptive writing that made me feel part of a gentler time. It took me back to a time past and I felt as if I could smell the clean air, I could imagine the woods filled with trees and animals . Pioneer life was described in intricate detail and it was fascinating. Nat and Marissa worked hard and made use of everything around them and their ingenuity knew no bounds. I loved reading about their lives and how the pioneers found ways to survive in new lands. Their story was also one of passion and sexual intensity that was quite breath-taking. Ali Spooner caught me off guard too with some surprising moments that I didn't see coming. I adored it and highly recommend 'The Bee Charmer'

Running From Love
Jen Silver

06/15/2017
Karen McIntosh
I adored this book. Jen Silver has written a wonderful story of a group of mature women on a golf retreat in Cornwall. Now I must admit I'm not a fan of golf but I was surprised at how addictive she made it seem. Beth and Sam are separated and are shocked to bump into each other there. Professional golfer Andi and her lover Freya are both in the closet and have no intention of leaving it. Along with a diverse group of women they are faced with reality and it's not going away. The setting was beautifully described and made me want to book a week or two there. It is the perfect backdrop for a tale of heartbreak, romance, unrequited love and some very sexy encounters. I couldn't put it down.
