    "Mine Till Twilight is a mass market romance book. If you're alright with the typical limitations of that genre, you'll probably love this books. It enraptured me and I typically dislike romance novels."

    "As historical novels go, this ticks most boxes. Independent heroine, sexy, dashing hero, with a very unconventional first meeting, this was fun. I thought that besides quite well-written sex scenes, the plot once past the initial meeting is pedestrian. The hero is Irish, but the story is set in London. "

    "I can easily think of some of the best romances I've read with Irish characters and those set in Ireland, and Bloodfever doesn't come close to be as god as those books. This is also a tough sell for the genre since it has supernatural aspects to it."

    "Faefever is a thrilling romance novel with the main character, MacKayla Lane, on the hunt for revenge for her sister's death. On the quest for revenge in Dublin, she ends up being torn in a triangle alliance of two lovers, V'lane and Jericho Barrons. As MacKayla approaches Dublin, she can't stop the chaos that breaks out. I thought that revenging a sister's death is a very noble thing, but she should've had some kind of help or backup. Having help would at least have kept her out of the love triangle she found herself in so she should've stayed guarded."
