I must admit, I was a little concerned about this book. Starting on number six?! Anyone who follows my blog should know two things:
1. I LOVE series.
2. I am a stickler when it comes to reading them in the correct order.

That being said, I am glad I decided to go against my instinct on this one. What a great book! Even though it was technically number six, it was more than fine to read as a standalone. 

At first all of the characters were a little confusing, but before I knew it they were all *close friends*. 
Watching the three siblings (Princess Anne, Prince Christian & Prince Brian) try to find balance between love, friendship, and responsibility was heartbreaking at times. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for them. 

Can they find any love and loyalty when there is so much on the line? 

I definitely can’t wait to read more books in the “To Be Sinclair” series!

DESCRIPTION:

How dangerous is it to be Imperial? 

Princess Anne Sinclair is unsure if she is in love, while her brothers Prince Christian and Prince Brian have a hard time finding ladies they can trust, and their strenuous duties keep them from really exploring their love lives. When Anne, a stargate scientist, is caught in a space battle, she does the right thing, but at what cost? 

Meanwhile, Christian fights to save the Stargate Fleet while Brian investigates the treason that led to the attack. Even as they celebrate Anne’s wedding, they reel under further treasons until the unthinkable happens…. 

What price must they pay, in pain and blood and freedom, in order to maintain their security? And how do they find spouses who can tolerate the demands of an Imperial lifestyle? 

This science fiction romance is the sixth book of the seven-part To Be Sinclair series. The saga continues with DYNASTY and its companion volume LOYALTY, which detail the romances and political struggles of the youngest Imperial siblings of the Sinclair Demesnes. A few scenes describe sexually explicit behavior.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book after reading The Vital a few months ago (you can see my review of The Vital HERE). I loved the first book in the series and I actually re-read it before starting in on Master of the Dark.

The book starts and it has been over three years since Ahleah was abducted from her homeland. She is now under the protection of the King Poseidon. 
She is little more than a prisoner, albeit in a beautiful prison. 

Although she does have friends, like Weng and Peracles, she also has enemies. The most powerful being Melasaris. 
When she has to go back to live with Melasaris I almost had a heart attack right along with her. 

To put it bluntly – I love this series. All of the characters are so 3-D and jump right  off the page at you. I feel excitement right along with Ahleah when Percoles shows up and terror when Melasaris is around. 
Ahleah herself is still growing and discovering her powers (as we find out at the end – hint hint) and I seriously can not wait for the next installment in the series. 

Overall I highly recommend. As always, you know me, I would suggest you start with the first book of the series

DESCRIPTION:

Ahleah of the Western Continent has become a political pawn known as The Vital. Her meteoric rise from auction block on Atlantis, to slave owned by the powerful and clever Lord Heracles, to an object of the king’s fascination, has condemned her to protected prisoner status within palace walls. 

Peracles, son of Lord Heracles, the only person Ahleah trusts, has been sent away for training to become her Guardian. With his return comes the devastating news that he must marry for state reasons, leaving Ahleah at the mercy of Dark Master Melasaris. His goal is her death, even though she’s the nation’s only hope of survival, as every day catapults them closer to disaster and the end of Atlantis.

This is one of those hard to write reviews. I loved the book and would be able to say a TON of things about it……only I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else! The author has a way of writing at the perfect pace. It makes you hooked from the first few pages and has you leaving your house a mess and (in my case) children to make chaos!

Gable is such a great character. He comes off super hard, and as a retired black ops agent it isn’t hard to believe. 
He left his home and family without a word  some thirty years earlier and never went back……or called…but when he got word that his mother died in a tragic accident the prodigal son returns. 

This is where the story really gets going. He meets Kari, the detective that deemed his mothers death a hunting accident. 
They get off to a rocky start, obviously she doesn’t like the fact that he is digging around and basically calling her incompetent. 

Once he decides that his mother’s death is anything but an accident he will do whatever it takes to bring vengeance to her killers. The ending will have you in tears. At least it had me in tears!
Definitely don’t miss this one! I see it is .99 cents at the moment and I don’t know how long it will last, so don’t delay. However, it is worth the purchase at any cost 😉

DESCRIPTION:

Gable Fitzgerald has spent his life as a covert operative–first with SEAL Team Six, and then with a highly covert Black Ops team. Now retired, Gable will search for the killer of his mother with all the skills he has developed to take down enemy governments. Working against both the good guys and the bad guys, he will go up against a beautiful state agent who will do everything she can to keep him inside the law. With his only rule: the mission must be accomplished, Gable will work his way through organized gangs and drug dealers to find out not only who would execute his seventy-seven year-old mother, but why, and God help anyone who gets in his way.

After reading “The Atlantis Crystal” (book review can be seen HERE) I couldn’t wait to read the second installment.
It definitely didn’t disappoint! Then again, I am a series kind of girl. Especially with such an awesome character like Phil!

This book picked up where the other one left off. Phil and Rod are soon to be married, and it is time to meet the parents and other such fun stuff.

Of course getting married doesn’t come with its fair share of freak outs for the poor girl.  She is even contemplating leaving her *knight in shining armor* behind, traveling to Peru and searching for the mythical Lost Mines. 

Unfortunately for her, fate has other ideas. Soon she finds herself abducted and has no idea why or where Rod and Binky are. 

I don’t want to give anything away, so I will leave it at that. 
Needless to say I loved it! I enjoy how it is such a clean romance, yet it still has enough heat to actually MAKE it a romance. Add in the adventure and funny dialogue…..it just can’t be beat! 
Get your copy now – you won’t be disappointed!  
(((Side note – I do highly recommend that you read the first book “The Atlantic Crystal” first)))

It seems that in this turbulent economy it is ever more important to have solid investments…..however, it is also infinitely more scary! Especially if you have no experience. 

I was super excited to read and review this book, because I recently have taken a serious interest in learning how to make money in the stock market. Without the fear of losing all of my savings. 
The challenge is that I truly have no knowledge or idea of where to start.

That is why I truly enjoyed this book! Chock full of knowledge, but written in a way that anyone can understand. 

If you are serious about learning how to trade stocks and make money (or even if you have no idea what that is, but want to learn!) then this book is a great match for you.

What a great book! I figured this was going to be one of the same ol’ romance books (not that there is anything wrong with a good romance!) but I was pleasantly surprised!

The beginning is a bit of a head scratcher at first. It begins with a scene from 20 years before that shows how Risada became an orphan and choose to become an assassin.
Then it skips to present time where Rustam (Rusty) is off doing his spy work.

If you just give it a few chapters though, everything starts fitting together and it gets really really good.

I loved all the characters. Rusty and Elwaes were hands down my favorite. I can see how some people are put off by Risada, but I can *get* her. She was formed by circumstances and is a very strong women. Nothing wrong with that! Although she does come off as a biatch sometimes and that does take away from the likability of her.

The plot had magic, intrigue, suspense, betrayal,  and of course a little bit of romance.
Although it is book one and there will be more (can’t wait!) it was not left on a cliffhanger. So for those of you who hate to read a book before the whole series is out shouldn’t have a problem with this one.

Highly recommend!

 

DESCRIPTION:

Think James Bond meets Lord of the Rings. Award-winning fantasy, THE PRINCE’S MAN, is a sweeping tale of spies and deadly politics, inter-species mistrust and magic phobia, with a touch of romance.       
Rustam Chalice, hedonist, dance tutor and spy, loves his life, never better than when he’s bedding a gorgeous woman. 
So when the kingdom he serves is threatened from within, he leaps into action. Only trouble is, the spy master, Prince Halnashead, teams him up with an untouchable aristocratic assassin who despises him.   
And to make matters worse, she’s the most beautiful woman in the Five Kingdoms.    
Plunged into a desperate journey through the mountains, the mismatched pair struggle to survive deadly wildlife, the machinations of a spiteful god – and each other.   
They must also keep alive a sickly elf they need as a political pawn. But when the elf reveals that Rustam has magic of his own, he is forced to question his identity, his sanity, and worse, his loyalty to his prince.    
For in Tyr-en, all magic users are put to death.
