New book review: The Ballad of Mila by Matteo Strukul
Link to review: http://www.themusescircle.blogspot.com/2014/02/book-review-ballad-o...
Book blurb: Hell hath no fury - Two perfectly matched gangs are fighting for control of the North-East Italian region of Venetia. But a formidable young woman with vengeance on her mind has plans to upset the balance. Abandoned by her mother and violated by a gang of criminals just after they slaughtered her father, Mila Zago is a cold-blooded killer, a deadly assassin. Brought up by her grandfather on the Sette Comuni plateau under a rigid martial code, she returns home to seek her revenge, conspiring to create a spectacular showdown reminiscent A Fistful of Dollars. The Ballad of Mila is the first novel in an on-going series focused on the formidable female Italian Bounty Hunter Mila Zago, a.k.a. Red Dread.

Skin Deep (Skin Deep, #1): Oh, who was she kidding? Emma knew that going to the tattoo shop with her best friend, Allie, would result in getting badgered until she ended up with some sort of needle piercing her flesh in one way or another. What she didn’t plan on was ending up face-first on the floor of the shop with a busted lip. Or doing it in front of the hottest guy she’d seen since…well, ever. Mortified, Emma never thought she’d ever step foot back in Skin Deep again. But fate, with a little help from Emma’s flighty best friend and a chance encounter with a fudge bar, steps in. Now Emma’s torn between taking a chance on getting her heart broken by the enigmatic, gorgeous Lucas, and playing it safe with good ol’ trusty B.O.B. Lucas lets Emma know that he gets what he wants, and what he wants is her. When Emma gives in and quits pushing him away, she’s surprised at how quickly the walls around her heart crumble. She’s even more surprised that her unconventional, zany family just endears her even more to him. But no one knows there’s someone that wants her more, and they’ll stop at nothing to get her. *Recommended for readers 18+ due to HOT sexual encounters, adult situations, and language.
Under My Skin (Skin Deep, #2): One little piercing. That’s all Allie wanted when she dragged her best friend into Skin Deep. She never imagined that it would result in a busted lip and an engagement ring for Emma, or that it would come with a double side of six-foot plus, tattooed, sexy-as-sin, H.O.T. maleness for her! Now she’s torn because Brandon and Jackson have both let it be known that they want her. And both are used to getting what they want. But what about what Allie wants? Brandon is hot for Allie. So is Jackson. Neither of them are willing to step aside for the other and they’re tired of Allie running. So they hatch a plan… Add in wedding bells, a dog named Doug, and you’ve got a recipe for a good time. Or a disaster. *Recommended for readers 18+ due to HOT sexual encounters, adult situations, and language.
Another excellent novel from a rising star of the literally world, the research and knowledge of the author shines through and uses his favourite place and characters from Chesapeake.The story revolves around a international tall ships race, following an ancient tea trade route, where the boats have to be replicas from the nineteenth century. When the Americans start researching the history of their ship it takes them on a treasure hunt and they find it takes them on a journey into the old ships route and brings them into conflict with the Chinese authorities.The author style of writing draws and enthralls the reader and you feel as if you are there experiencing all the emotions of all the characters in the situations they face. The tension and suspense that the writer builds up to a crescendo is superb and the adventures and scenarios that are described are first class. The intense relationships which are portrayed in the storyline are excellent and you can relate the feelings to moments in your own life. This vibe you get brings the characters even more to life.This novel has everything a reader needs, romance, thrills, excitement, treasure seeking and the building of relationships between father and son. Another first rate account from one of my favourite authors and look forward to reviewing more of his books.

Book Review and Signed Book Giveaway - Crazy in Paradise by Deborah Brown
'a light and airy who done it with humor and romance' Crazy in Paradise by Deborah Brown gets a 5***** review from Miki's Hope
"I enjoyed reading this book so much! Madison Westin is one of those character's that will have you chuckling--then laughing out loud-and even shaking your head in disbelief at some of the scrapes she gets into. Zach, who walked into her house (literally) is a private detective bad boy who immediately decides that Madison is his girlfriend-whether she agrees or not. His cohorts all end up walking in as well and kind of take over Madison's life--as if she doesn't have enough trouble with a Mom who is, let's just say unusual and seems to want to set poor Madison up on a date--Madison's brother--well he is her Big brother after all. Actually I don't think there is one normal person in the book--except perhaps for Jazz, Madison's cat! There are some pretty nasty people in there as well who are out to steal Madison's inheritance (her recently deceased Aunt Elizabeth's motel) and things do get kind of dicey for a while.
In conclusion if you like a light and airy who done it or is going to possibly do it and you like humor along with a little romance, a little mystery and a little of everything in-between-I suggest you sit yourself down and read this book--it is a fast read and it definitely gets a 5 star from me!"

5 LUCKY WINNERS will each receive a signed book from the authorOpen WorldwideEnding on Thursday 6th March at 11.59pm EST
Almost without his notice, Tom had slipped from childhood through adolescence and then into young adulthood woefully unprepared for that transition. Both his childhood and his adolescence had been hells of isolation and rejection. And there had been no emotional support at home either. His only tranquility had been the wilderness, to which he escaped whenever possible.But this is only the set up for the real hell which was to follow, coming in the guise of a beautiful and seemingly innocent young women named Mary. Schooled in etiquette, God, and discipline, she was equally skillful at secrecy and pretense. And unable to see behind her subtle facades, Tom mistakes her demure reserve for shyness and under that illusion, he tumbles into a deep, undying love, into which inexorably pour all of his pent up needs and desires. The delusion is only broken when Mary suddenly reveals a cold indifference to his emotions. Then upon dispatching him with sudden sly cruelty and consummate betrayal, she immediately vanishes behind a veil of silence.In this explosive coming of age story we are taken down the rabbit hole of unrequited love and rejection, where in the depths of despair, Tom must wrestle with the devil of his darkest emotions and deny that devil his every temptation to commit heinous acts of evil. There is no rape or murder beyond the wild imaginings of Tom, who in the aftermath of Mary's brutality, goes completely psycho, in this nightmarish book of tragic love. In fact, it is almost miraculous that those atrocities do not happen, given the intensity of Tom's rage.In witnessing Tom's struggle, however, we are brought to a better understanding of human sexuality, how people can be driven to violence, and why people sometimes die by suicide. As Tom makes a slow and arduous climb out of his abyss, we learn how to survive heartbreak and emotional abuse. Launching into psychotherapy, he begins the process of peeling back the onion to find his hidden demons. During this painful process he struggles with an inability to forgive himself for becoming a victim, and in equal part, an inability to forgive the ghost of Mary, for her profound cruelty and dishonesty. But with the scepter of suicide ever lurking, it becomes increasingly clear how much his very survival depends on his letting go of his anger and letting go of the past.
