Frisky Business
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

I really enjoy reading Tawna Fenske's books and short stories. I read the first one because I liked the way she communicated on blogs, and then on Facebook, but all the others I read because the writing was hella good. Her tales are...

Magick & Moonlight
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

MAGICK AND MOONLIGHT is a short story, but it manages to get a whole lot of character development into a few thousand words. Character development in such a short arc is laudable. It is also well written with a smooth narrative flow,...

Bound to the Elvin King
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

BOUND TO THE ELVIN KING is a fun, engaging read. There are very few spots where the plot drags. The world building is good. Granted, it is implausible in the extreme, but takes itself so tongue-in-cheek that the reader gleefully suspends...

The Stranger Next Door
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

I originally picked up this romantic suspense because of the author's pen name; who wouldn't want to read a book by a woman bold and funny enough to call herself Chastity Bush?

The story involves a cop with trust issues...

The Princess and the Templar
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

THE PRINCESS AND THE TEMPLAR was well-written and entertaining fiction. The prose could be a little purple in spots, but the lilac-tinged wording was rather enjoyable to a reader who came of age reading romance novels in the 1980s....

Turning Thirty-Twelve
Book Reviewed by Betty Fokker

I'll start off by saying that although I have never met Sandy James in real life, we "know" each other through a mutual group of Facebook friends who are authors. Nevertheless, I will not sugarcoat the review. I have to tell you my...
