  • The Rumor

  • The Water Cure

    Aptly named patriarch King repairs to an island with his wife and daughters to escape an unnamed cataclysm. Even though for a time they welcomed castaway women, the daughters are taught to fear strangers, especially men, who are considered toxic. This insular, hothouse environment, though meant to protect the girls, also sequesters them from being able to adjudge their parents' stringent "exercises" as little more than torture. When King disappears, the daughters' carefully crafted world begins to crumble, and emotions (which the exercises were meant to curb) bubble up.

  • Untouchable

    This was a good "ending" to the series. However, this book could be read as a stand-alone because Krentz is great at fleshing out her characters in each book. I liked the chemistry between Winter and Jack and Zane is even more warped than in the past. The fire theme is very strong in this story and while the ending is a little out there, it makes sense in the long run. I always enjoy her stories no matter which name she writes under and am looking forward to her next novel. This book makes you believe you're watching a movie with its details and would probably make a nice one!

  • The Book Jumper

    This book was not quite what I expected but I liked it anyway. With my love of books, it would be amazing to have the ability to enter any story at any point and see and experience the story first hand. This story shows how important the smallest things and the basic story ideas are important to the finished product. It would be dangerous to think that one small change would make every copy of the story, no matter where or when, become different or maybe not exist at all. This would be a huge job and maybe not as glorious as it seems at the beginning.

  • The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Montague Siblings #2)

    This was a fun sequel and I really wish there would be more. I loved how Felicity was fearless and resourceful. I would love to know what happens to Felicity and her two best friends. Females of much more substance than normal and full of force, humor and understanding. Making a life of their own, these three chart a path most men couldn't follow.

  • Bad Girls

    While the graphics and color was wonderful, this story was not what I expected. It was much more violent and hard to follow. Not much background on each of the three women, so I found it hard to keep them separated.
