    "This is a fun little series about a sultry Vampire Hunter and her Vampire lover. If you like romance and undead action I can recommend this series. It has fun with itself and puts a smile on my face because it doesn't take itself too seriously. I can definitely recommended for genre fans of horror and romance."

    "A fine read to pass the time, but not something so crazy good you'll run to tell your friends. Historical romances can be really good if they fit a time or a people you care about, and this doesn't particularly fall into any special category for me."

    "Carter Reed is one romance book to not miss out on. The book is devoted to characters that are sneaky and underhanded but very entertaining to follow. This wasn't the book that I thought that I had picked up but I enjoyed it just the same."

    "If you're looking for a suspenseful romance book to read this summer, look no further than "Crow's Row" by Julie Hockley. I'm not even typically into these types of books but the plot caught my eye and I decided to give it a try on a whim. I am glad I did because this book is awesome and it will definitely keep you entertained to the very end. The story might be a little unrealistic to some extent but if you can suspend your disbelief for awhile you'll be pleasantly surprised. Do yourself a favor and check out this book!"

    "I love a great retelling of a fairy tale. The Fairest Beauty is based on the familiar story of Snow White. The characters are well-drawn. It's a delight to see Sophie come alive as she discovers there's more to life than being an abused servant. Gabe is the second son of a duke, and he grows into the hero role. The way Melanie Dickerson has changed the classic tale makes the story fresh and new. This is the third book in the series, and the others are just as great."

    "I have a big beach vacation coming up this summer and need some great romance novels to bring along. I'm so excited about this title - it's the first in a series so I'm not coming in the middle, it's a fairly new romance that I've not read yet, and it looks really interesting! It's highly rated and written by a bestselling author. It should be a good read!"
