REVIEW: Hers To Cherish by Patricia A. Knight

Hers To Cherish by Patricia A. Knight
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My favorite story yet!! What a fantastic story! I loved Her's to Cherish, and I really can't express that enough. Now adding Patricia A. Knight to my awesome-as-sin authors shelf. My goodness.

This book has a great female protagonist. Steffania is strong but vulnerable at the same time,wonderfully complex, and very likable. Next we meet the male protagonist. Ramsey is strong, oh so hawt, honorable, and tortured by a dark and difficult past.

These two together add up to an engrossing story line that is well spiced with sexy sexy bondage scenes. The sense of intimacy building between Steffania and Ramsey is palpable. They both struggle internally and externally and it helps to make the story that much more engrossing. All around a great read by a great author that delivers time and time again.

In The Pages of a Good Book Blog Hop - Topic Friendship!

Welcome Hoppers!! In celebration of In the Pages of a Good Book's One Year Anniversary I'd like to present this post to the blog hop! 
Welcome to Mercy's World, the blog about all things romance!!! I hope you enjoy your stay.

What's better than a story about hot steamy romance??? A story about girl pals that stick together through thick and thin, and then find romance! 

Far be it from me to devalue a great steamy romance read. But what could be better than a story about friends sticking together? I've listed a couple of books below by one of my favorite authors. Other than being funny and an all around great time, these books feature one common theme. Girlfriends! Reading about the great relationship that these ladies had made the story that much more interesting. It just goes to show that secondary characters can make up the difference between regular and spectacular. Not that these books aren't hunk-tacular like all good romances should be... Cause they are!

Mercy Talks Sex: Creating Intimate Moments

The key to making sex scenes romantic is portraying a sense of intimacy between the characters. Give them their moment of aha! This is different than its ever been before. This is special. But how do you do that? There are many complex feelings and emotions involved in the situation as it is, but how do you show the intimacy without overwhelming the reader with description? Or worse killing the sexy?1. Show the intimacy with touch. A slow gentle touch to a non sexual area during a love scene can go a long way to display the intimacy between two characters. Let your alpha male caress his female’s jaw. Let him run the back of his hand down her cheek. Have him hug her close without the tension of arousal between them. These are all ways to show that your characters are about more than just sex. One of the main complaints for new romance writers is that there is no sense of a developing romance between the main characters. At the end of the story it just seams that the I love you’s come o…

REVIEW: Tempting His Mate by Savannah Stuart

Tempting His Mate by Savannah Stuart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really like this series, but this book is my favorite so far! The characters in this story are more developed, and therefore oh-so-much more love-able. This is a quick and light read. Very entertaining, and very sexy as well. Can't wait to see what happens in the next one!
