Review: Beware a Scot’s Revenge

12th Sep 2008

This time, we’re reviewing Beware a Scot’s Revenge, by Sabrina Jeffries.

Beware a Scot\'s Revenge“Someone’s going to call your bluff someday, Venetia – you’d better hope it’s not a handsome man.” – Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress.

Lady Venetia Campbell’s visit to her childhood home in Scotland takes a dramatic turn when she’s kidnapped at pistol point by her father’s sworn enemy. Sir Lachlan Ross is widely feared in his guise as The Scottish Scourge, but Venetia remembers her former neighbor as a handsome youth whose attentions she craved. Now a wickedly sexy man, Lachlan’s appeal is even more intoxicating…and much more dangerous. Though Lachlan tries to treat her as his foe, his scorching kisses tell another story. And despite his plan to use her as a weapon against her father, Venetia is determined that Lachlan’s lust for revenge will be trumped by an even more powerful desire…

Review: Pride and Prejudice

29th Aug 2008

Our latest review is of Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen:

Pride and PrejudiceWhen Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited, while he struggles to remain indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.



Review: Crystal Starbeam and the Heart Sword of Jamerica

17th Aug 2008

Belle: Dear Readers: I apologise for Withholding from you the delights of our reviews but Sadly one of our readers had the unmitigated gall to send us Fan Fiction. As you know, Claire and I despise fan fiction. We do not pursue it legally because we believe in freedom of speech, but it is vile and all those who write it are despicable plagiarists scavenging from the works of Real Authors like vultures scavenging a maggot-ridden corpse.

Webmistress Niki: Belle was a little upset, so we took a brief hiatus from reviews.

Art From Our Readers

17th Aug 2008

Hi everyone! It’s Claire! Today I’m going to share with you one of my very favorite things: art from our fans!

Belle and I love getting all kinds of fanmail, of course, but there’s something really special about the pictures our readers send us. It’s really obvious how much our stories are touching people when they go to so much trouble to create beautiful, hand-crafted images like the ones I’m going to show you today. I hope you’ll like them as much as I do! (P.S. Niki says you can click on them to make them bigger!)

Review: The Black Jewels Trilogy

7th Jul 2008

Our latest review is of the Black Jewels Trilogy – Daughter of the Blood, Heir to the Shadows and Queen of the Darkness – omnibus edition, by Anne Bishop:

Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions.

Now the Dark Realm readies itself for the arrival of its Queen, the Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But the Queen is still young, still open to influence—and corruption.

Whoever controls the Queen controls the Darkness. Three men—sworn enemies—know this. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes of an innocent young girl. And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love—and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining….
