Darker Still - Review

I was obsessed.

It was as if he called to me, demanding I reach out and touch the brushstrokes of color swirled onto the canvas. It was the most exquisite portrait I'd ever seen—everything about Lord Denbury was unbelievable...utterly breathtaking and eerily lifelike.

Lady Arabella and the Dwarven King - Review
I've spent my life trying to ignore the haters. As strategies go--it's not working.

Sealed into my room to lose weight, I'm kidnapped into a stunning underground world, where males outnumber females by a hundred to one. It doesn't take long to discover I'm the fated mate of the newly ascended king, Thorin the Tenth. He's loud, rude and arrogant, but I'm stunned by glimpses of his vulnerability, and find myself wanting to seize this chance at love. But Dwarfholme is changing, and Thorin is in danger. The gods have limits and enemies are everywhere. I've finally found the partner I've so desperately longed for, but is it love or just really good sex? With my future mother-in-law out to destroy us, and my mate's childhood friend a bloodthirsty god, time is running out. I need to discover the truth between us, before it's too late.
