E-Originals from Edwards, Lincoln, and Meader | Xpress Reviews

This feels like a travelog of the time period, with little payoff for new readers; Lincoln’s writing is engaging—for those who love sports-based romances; readers will enjoy the family dynamics of the band-of-brothers hockey team and the women they adore

E-Originals from Arend, Johnson, Linde, and Porter | Xpress Reviews

Readers will want to know more about Heart Falls and the folks who live there; this series launch seems to lack a clear path or central theme; a fascinating and compelling world of vampire and human codependency; the latest in Porter’s “Love on Chance Avenue” series is her best yet

Lemmon turns up the friction between her protagonists to give their connection some genuine sizzle; Quincy has created a hotly seductive Regency romance; two virgins who don’t act coy or impossibly naïve

A perfect tale for Winter Olympics lovers; Irby combines themes of redemption and healing for broken families with sincere characters; Rhone creates wonderful characters that touch readers’ hearts

E-Originals from Leslie A. Kelly and Lia Riley, plus Debuter Audrey Wick | Xpress Reviews

Kelly hits all the right notes here and balances the romance with suspense to very nice effect; another love-at-first-sight tale with some social issues tacked on, in this case domestic violence; the protagonists are both hiding secrets that, unfortunately, aren’t given the time and space they need to make an emotional impact
