Review: Penthouse Player

Penthouse Player by Tara Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Billionaire men courting helpless females are a dime a dozen romances. I read this book on a lark because the Publisher sent it to me and I trust this specific one when she sends me books she thinks I might like. She's learned my taste in books surprisingly quickly. Ms. Leigh is a new to me author who caught my attention in the very first few paragraphs in this book. Within a chapter, I was disgusted and was going to mark it as a DNF and send a note back to the Publisher not to send me anything more like this. That would have been a mistake.

Ms. Leigh set me up for a mind twister I wasn't expecting. Reina is the main character and she first comes off as a determined woman. But then, as more descriptions come through, a reader may think she is just a woman looking for her MRS. in the worst of ways. Personally, I have zero interest in reading shallow women who are gold diggers. Some enjoy it, I do not. As the book slowly pe…

DUKE OF DESIRE by Elizabeth Hoyt Blog Tour & Excerpt

Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping.  Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos.  When one of the masked-and-nude!-Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him…only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.

Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them.  Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans.  But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.

Much to Raphael’s irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involes herself in his life—and bed.  Soon he’s drawn to both to her quick wit and her fiery passion.  But when Iris discovers that Raphael’s past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters.  Is their love strong eno…

About Sightlines
Chase Payne is a walking contradiction. He's the most powerful psychic in the Community, but the least respected. He's the son of the Community's founder, but with his tattoo sleeves and abrasive attitude, he's nothing like his charismatic family. No one knows what to make of him, which is how he wound up locked in a cell on the Farm yet again. But this time, the only man he's ever loved is there too.
Elijah Estrella was used to being the sassy sidekick who fooled around with Chase for fun. But that was before he realized the Community wasn't the haven he'd believed in and Chase was the only person who'd ever truly tried to protect him. Now they're surrounded by people who want to turn them against their friends, and the only way out is to pretend the brainwashing works.
With Chase playing the role of a tyrant's second-in-command, and Elijah acting like Chase's mind…
