In Her Bed by Deborah Macgillivray
In Her Bed

Jacquie Rogers, author of Faery Special Romances, September 12, 2007

Deborah MacGillivray introduced us to Damian St. Giles in A Restless Knight. Who was that delicious man who disappeared, leaving us sorely enticed? Now we find out where he's been. In Her Bed isn't a sequel to A Restless Knight since both books take place simultaneously. Hey, and we thought Tamlyn and Julian had issues. Ha! Just imagine the blow to Damian's ego when he finds out Lady Aithinne Oglivie has used him for stud service.

Aithinne is desperate to secure the future of her holdings, and to do that, she must produce an heir. She sends her twin brothers and her protector to procur a good specimen. Damian, drugged and spelled by Oona, can't believe his good luck when he's seduced by the woman whose image he's loved for years. He thought, at first, it was the Lady Tamlyn, but even though he's a bit miffed at his treatment, he finds Aithinne even more irresistable. Lady Aithinne, on the other hand, isn't the slightest bit interested in having any man claim her or her lands. And she's not at all amused when Damian tells her that King Edward has granted her lands to him.

Let Ms. MacGillivray take you on a journey through sensuality, betrayal, and true love. In Her Bed is the second book in MacGillivray's Dragons of Challon series, but can be read as a standalone just as well. (I don't know why anyone would want to miss the first book, though.)

For a true page-turner, I highly recommend Aithinne and Damian's rocky road to true love.

The Reincarnationist by M. J. Rose
The Reincarnationist

Jacquie Rogers, author of Faery Special Romances, August 24, 2007

For true entertainment--thrills, chills, and a wild ride--The Reincarnationist fills the bill and then some.

Since his near-death caused by a suicide bomber, photo-journalist Josh Ryder's life has become impossible. Gone are his job, his wife, and all he knew. Without warning, Josh becomes Julius, a Roman priest a Roman priest in 391AD, fighting for not only his life but that of his lover's, as well as the sacred rites they've held holy for thousands of years. Just as quickly, he returns to present day as Josh.

His world is even more confused when an archeologist who's excavating a tomb of a Vestal Virgin, is murdered. Josh describes the killer to Rome's police, but is held as a suspect. The beautiful archeologist Gabriella Chase gets him released from prison, but then he's caught up in a web of love, both past and present, murder, extortion, and deceit.

The pages fly by as Josh and Gabriella are tossed from one mystery to another, sometimes fighting for their very lives. I thoroughly enjoyed The Reincarnationist from cover to cover and I highly recommend this book. Take a comfy seat and let M.J. Rose unravel this mysterious adventure for you!

The Invasion of Falgannon Isle by Debora Macgillivray
The Invasion of Falgannon Isle

Jacquie Rogers, author of Faery Special Romances, December 22, 2006

The Cat Dudley Rules!

You won't forget the characters in this book for a very, very long time after you finish the last page. The Cat Dudley is a force to be reckoned with. Desmond, a wounded hero, is determined to bring down the Montgomery empire, and B.A. with it, even though she sets his heart (and other things) atwitter. Meanwhile, 213 men are doing whatever they can to make B.A. fall in love with the green-eyed half-Irishman outlander. Why? To break the curse preventing marital bliss--the islanders want wives.

And what a gutsy heroine is B.A.! She is a tenacious, kind-hearted woman who is determined to bring love to the men of Falgannon Isle. The only thing she can't do is let herself fall in love again. But The Cat Dudley has other ideas, and he's more than accustomed to getting his own way.

The Invasion of Falgannon Isle is a wonderful read that will take you through the entire gamut of emotion. It's a revenge story, but like none other. There's humor and angst. Sometimes you want to kiss Desmond and sometimes you want to kick him. Mostly, you'll want to kiss him. And, of course, I adored The Kitten Annie.

I'm primarily a historical romance reader, but this contemporary paranormal brings the past into the present. Wonderful book. Buy it. Read it. You won't be sorry.

The Falcon's Bride (Timeswept) by Dawn Thompson
The Falcon's Bride (Timeswept)

Jacquie Rogers, author of Faery Special Romances, December 20, 2006

The Falcon's Bride is a love story--of a mother's sacrifice for her son, as well as the passion between Roc and Theo.

Theo Barrington travels to Ireland with the intention of marrying Nigel Cosgrove. While Theo has her doubts, she knows this match will be a good one for her father's finances. Enter one old Gypsy lady who tells Theo she's the Black Falcon's bride. But the Black Falcon is a legend--half Irish lord and half Gypsy, not a real man, and dead long ago. Still, at the Winter Solstice, Theo is drawn to a 5,000-year-old passage tomb called Newgrange, where she is transported to the arms of Ros Dromcondra, the Black Falcon. And the passion begins.

Talk about a delicioso hero--Ros Drumcondra fills the bill and more. Yum. Theo Barrington is strong enough as well as smart enough to be his match in both wits and passion. The Falcon's Bride is a compelling story you won't want to put down. Every offering from this talented author gets better and better. This book is definitely a keeper!

Insufficient Mating Material by Rowena Cherry
Insufficient Mating Material

Jacquie Rogers, author of Faery Special Romances, December 4, 2006

We drooled over Prince Djetthro-Jason before and now Rowena Cherry has written his story--one that was definitely worth the wait! In her typical fashion, Ms. Cherry combines sex, action, love, and adventure into one terrific story. Did I say sex? Whoowee!

Princess Martia-Djulia is overlooked, underrated, but not underfed. Commander Jason has captured her heart and she refuses to give in to Emperor Tarrant-Arragon's demand that she marry Prince Djethro-Jason. Meantime, Djetth, having had wild and crazy sex with her as Jason, is quite amenable to at least the bedsport part of the deal. Her curves drive him absolutely mad with desire. But he has to be patient--not his long suit.

Patience isn't the princess's brother's long suit, either. When Djetth doesn't make progress convincing the princess to mate with him, the emperor decides to shoot the two wayward lovers down on a deserted island. The couple has to resort to surviving on their wits--which is hard since they're both at their wits' end.

Insufficient Mating Material is a sexy, funny adventure story, and informative, too. I had a great time reading this book. Ms. Cherry has written a great follow-up to Forced Mate and Mating Net that won't disappoint either her fans or her new readers. IMM is a stand-alone book. You don't have to read the previous book and novella to have a great reading experience. But I'll bet you'll want to read her other books once you've read this one.

Three cheers for Rowena Cherry!
