Book Review: Falling for a Pirate by Meredith Bond | Proceeds help gay Chechens

"How can I be more kind?" It's a question at the heart of the poetry of Hafez, a Sufi mystic often quoted by pirate captain Salim al-Mandri, the beloved in this time-travel romance. And it becomes a crucial question for our hero Dylan, who's not sure how to square his affection for Salim with his revulsion for violence. Falling for a Pirate by Meredith Bond is an adventurous romance with a philosophical soul.

Book Review: Serpent’s Kiss by Layla Dorine

Serpent's Kiss by Layla Dorine is a wild ride full of mystery, intrigue, and suspense in a society that's been driven underground. Readers who enjoy fantasy filled with political machinations, assassination plots, and outsider heroes will be drawn in by this novel. Of course, there's romance too and a bit of steam — though the leads are surprisingly chaste for how much they want to tear each other's clothes off.

Book Review: Asta Idonea’s “Wish You Were Here” & Book Giveaway

I'm excited to have Asta Idonea on my blog today. We have appeared in a lot of anthologies together, and I love her writing.  She has a writing style that gets right to the heart of her characters' emotions. Her newest release is Wish You Were Here, a sweet romance novella about two college-age men who have trouble with their families but find solace in each other. Oakley has always felt distant from his parents, but with the recent death of his sister, the rift between them has grown even wider. Bobby has...

Book Review: iPlates, Volume 1 by Stephen Carter & Jett Atwood

If you find yourself falling asleep every time you try reading the Book of Mormon but are still curious about its contents, you might want to try iPlates Volume 1: Zeniff, Abinadi, Alma, and Ammon: Book of Mormon Comics by Stephen Carter and Jett Atwood. Like its source material, iPlates tells incredible (and often gory) stories about Hebrew prophets, missionaries, kings and warriors living in the Americas before Christ's birth. But it's in pictures, so it's more entertaining.
