sota-scarletters112713Reviewed by Jessa Larsen

Rudy Dallmann is a 40 year old gay man, living an isolated life in Massachusetts as a self-employed gardener. Nearly twenty years ago, he was savagely assaulted by two teenagers shortly after leaving a gay bar. Rudy never reported the crime, but it still haunts him, even now. What triggered theses two young boys to assault him in such a way? Where are they now? What kind of men did they become? Rudy’s best friend Tex pushes and prods until Rudy finally gives in and begins the emotionally tolling search to find some answers and perhaps, hopefully, finally, move on.

The Scar Letters is the meandering narrative of Rudy, a man constantly questioning the motives of himself and others. Wondering the eternal what-if’s of life. The meandering style flows well with the main character and truly suits the

In the previous two books in this trilogy, Olivia Germaine met and fell in love with a man who wasn’t her husband. Now that she’s made her decision, she’s found that leaving Bill for David Dylan isn’t “happily ever after,” but rather the beginning of a long, and emotionally painful experience. One she’s not at all certain she can handle. After all, if she couldn’t commit to her husband, what makes her think she can commit to David?

Olivia isn’t’t the only one with challenges. David finally has the woman he loves and wants to spend his life with. But he just can’t get her to open up to him. She approaches him carefully, as though bracing herself for pain and rejection. And David demands all of her, uninhibited and unafraid. He won’t settle for less than everything.

Young Sophie’s father leaves his family, never to return. Soon after, Sophie’s mother drops sick on the street.. A kind passerby stops to help and gets her mother to the hospital where she passes away, presumably from consumption. The stranger then advises Sophie to go to Belfield Hall and promises to put in a good word for her there. Thus begins Sophie’s journey as a lowly scullery maid; during her entire time at Belfield, she never forgets the kindness that was extended to her when she needed it most and writes letters to the man she idolizes.

When two of the family’s heirs die, the estate buzzes with anticipation of the new heir’s arrival. Unwittingly, Sophie becomes involved in Lady Beatrice’s – former heir’s wife – plan to entrap the dashing new heir, Lord Ashley. When she realizes that

Quiver Review

I had the rare opportunity to indulge in two of Tobsha Learner’s erotic novels this month. And having finished Quiver, her collection of short stories, I was impressed. This collection of short stories has 12 takes on sex and sexuality. Some stories were formulaic. A woman trying to become a mother. A marriage that had grown stale. But some of the stories were a bit more interesting. A tall woman is seduced by a short gambler. The office ice queen falls in love.

It was easy to love how each story wove into the other parts of the book. You could read

Not to be confused with Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret, S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline is actually an acronym for the type of experiences the protagonist undergoes in this sweet novel of personal growth. Cassie Robichaud is a young widow waitressing in New Orleans, living in a “numb limbo” since her estranged, alcoholic husband died in an automobile accident. One day, a regular accidentally leaves behind a burgundy notebook with highly personal information that leads Cassie to SECRET, a secret sisterhood devoted to facilitating the sexual growth of selected women by arranging for their sexual fantasies to come to life.

Cassie seems to be the ideal recruit for this underground society. Socially inhibited and sexually inexperienced, Cassie stands to gain

Athena Smith is a fashion curator who is caught in the middle of a mystery. She is interested in getting dresses from the Clayworth family Secret Closet, and inadvertently finds herself involved in a theft of some of the dresses. The collection is as well known as the family, and is kept by Drew Clayworth. It seems Drew and Athena share a tragedy laced past, that will either serve to bring them together or force them away from each other for good.

Athena awakens in a hospital (after an episode with a toxin laced dress) only to find out that Drew Clayworth, an old beau, has come back into her life. Athena is unable to get past the feelings of loyalty to her father, and feels she must restore the good reputation of her family
