Review/Ratings System

An anthology of four stories loosely based on a Valentine theme.


 Rating:  4 – A Pack Howl
Sexual 2 – Steamy
 Rori overhears the “office jerk” make a bet with his posse that he can make her cry when she reads a note that he has written.  This is a delightful and sexy story of competition not only in the office, but between a cupid and a demon.  Those of us “young” enough to remember the good ole’ days of the drive-ins will chuckle when reading. . .

REUNITED by Helen Hardt

Rating:  3 – One Good Howl
Sexual:  1 – Flirty
 Brett and Kathryn were the polar opposites in high school but he needed a tutor and well, she was the one appointed.  Circumstances forced them apart.  Years later, they are united, divorced, single parents and find their way back to one another.  I like the way Ms. Hardt uses flashback in the story to show the history between Brett and Kathryn in high school.  A heartwarming story of getting a second chance at love. 


 DNF – I really did try with this one.  Tessa is an author who uses Eaton (vampire) and Brahm (shifter) to block her scenes in the erotic novels she writes.  There is also a ghost named Agnes involved somehow.  I stuck with all of the non-sex – ménage blocking until Brahm has an out-of-body experience as Agnes.  Not for me.

MASQUERADE by Sloane Taylor

Rating: 4 – A Pack Howl
Sexual:  2 – Steamy
 Clancy is on the vacation of her dreams in Venice when a handsome stranger sweeps her off of her feet and makes all of her wishes for the perfect vacation come true.  An enchanting tale that takes you on a mini-tour of Venice via the romance of Clancy and her dashing Vittore.


  1. Thanks for the wonderful review, Artemis! I'm really glad you read my little story. #:0)

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
