Maximum Exposure by Alison Kent

**Note: this review is spoiler-free, so read on without fear**

Private Investigator Finn McLain has handled his share of odd assignments, so when lovesick gallery owner Dustin Parks hires him to go to Miami and dig up information on Roland Green, the manager of a small boutique, Finn thinks nothing of it. But this assignment turns out to be more complicated than Finn could have imagined when he meets the boutique’s sexy owner, Olivia Hammond.

From the moment they meet, Olivia knocks Finn’s socks off with an unusual business proposal. She needs a photographer to take pictures of her for an erotic art exhibit, and she thinks Finn’s just the man for the job. Finn can’t help but be intrigued by the proposal, nor by the stunning woman who claims she likes to “let people look.”

Finn knows there’s far more to Olivia than she’s letting on and he takes her up on the offer, eager to discover what mysteries lie beneath Olivia’s exhibitionist façade. With each photograph, each erotic encounter, Olivia and Finn get closer and closer, the pull between them undeniable. But even as desire burns hot between the lovers, Finn’s simple investigation assignment uncovers dangerous information people are willing to kill to keep hidden.

The clock is ticking, and both Finn and Olivia have to decide if it’s worth taking a chance and revealing all their secrets for a love more wild and passionate then either could ever have dreamed.

Better have those oven mitts ready because Maximum Exposure is hot enough to burn! Alison Kent has penned an explosively hot romance filled with, action, intrigue, and sizzling sensuality.

Finn is a hero who just comes alive on the page. He has that slightly rumpled sexiness that hits strong and hard because you don’t expect if from such a seemingly laid-back male. Olivia, for her part, was an interesting heroine. She’s completely open and comfortable with her sexuality, which I admire, but she also uses exhibitionism as armor. As Finn starts to get under her skin, there are chinks in that armor, and the vulnerability hidden beneath and the reasons for it are heartbreaking, serving only to make her a more endearing character. Ms. Kent made me care about Finn and Olivia’s romance, not just for the story’s sake, but because I cared about the two of them and wanted nothing more than for them to find happiness with one another.

In addition to Olivia and Finn’s story, there’s a strong subplot involving Roland Green, who is actually undercover DEA agent Roman Greyle. Without giving away plot spoilers, I will say that Roman has an equally steamy romance with Jodi Fontaine whose boss, Dustin, is in love with the supposedly gay “Roland.” Roman and Jodi’s storyline was every bit as engaging as Finn and Olivia’s and I enjoyed seeing how the two plots converged.

Maximum Exposure releases November 25, 2008. It is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Kent and it definitely won’t be my last. A captivating blend of sex and danger, Maximum Exposure is not to be missed!

Dark Needs at Night’s Edge by Kresley Cole: A Must Read

**Note: this review is spoiler-free, so read on without fear**

Unbeknownst to humankind, immortals live among us. Creatures of the Lore – vampires, Valkyrie, witches, Lykae, demons, and other magical beings are as real as you or I. Battles have been going on for centuries as different factions of the Lore vie for supremacy. But things are changing. Even as the fighting escalates, enemies have become allies, prejudices are slowly being chipped away, and love seems determined to have its say. This is the world of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series.

Dark Needs at Night’s Edge takes us to the haunted streets of New Orleans where Conrad Wroth, a vampire driven to madness, hunted by his enemies, and consumed by his need for vengeance, plots to kill his brothers for having turned him into what he hates. In their last effort to bring him back from the brink of destruction, Conrad’s brothers capture and imprison him at Elancourt, an abandoned estate. What they don’t know is that the mansion’s former owner still lives there…and only Conrad can see her.

Néomi Laress was once a famous ballerina, until her life was abruptly cut short by her murder. For more than eighty years she has haunted her home, unable to interact with anyone – until Conrad. Néomi is drawn to Conrad, seeing the man beneath the madness. Can Conrad overcome the darkness inside him? Will love be able to grow between a vampire and a ghost? Or will Conrad’s enemies destroy them both? These questions I leave to be answered by the story.

I have two confessions to make. First, I absolutely love the first four books in Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. Second, I was fully prepared to dislike this book. Conrad begins the book wanting to kill his brothers, Nikolai, Sebastian, and Murdoch. After four books, two of which featured Wroth males as heroes, I am firmly attached to the Wroth brothers and did not believe I could like someone out to harm them for reasons I did not agree with. In addition, I do not, as a rule, like romances featuring ghosts. That being said…

I loved this book! Cole defied my expectations, overcame my biases, and delivered a love story beyond compare. I was engrossed in Conrad’s inner struggle, found myself understanding the reasons that fueled his desire for revenge, and loved his protectiveness of Néomi. I admired Néomi’s inner strength, adored her quirks, and was heartbroken by her need for love. Most importantly, I was completely enthralled by this story from the very beginning. Conrad and Néomi have numerous obstacles to overcome, none the least of which is her being incorporeal. I found myself cheering them on, wondering how their burgeoning love would survive.

I also cannot write this review without praising Cole’s skill, not just as a storyteller, but as a writer. Conrad’s thoughts, his disassociation from himself in his madness, are written in such a way that I am in awe of Cole’s talent. The transition of those thoughts as he slowly begins to reclaim control is so smooth, so flawless, that after I finished Dark Needs at Night’s Edge I found myself flipping back, trying to find the transition point. For this reason alone, I would recommend the book.

One of my favorite aspects of this series is that characters from previous books play strong supporting roles. In Dark Needs at Night’s Edge, readers get to revisit almost all the previous heroes and heroines of the series, and many more favorite characters reappear. In addition, Cole provides some tantalizing hints about her next hero and heroine, Cade and Holly, which makes me grateful Dark Desires After Dusk comes out May 20, 2008.

For those new to Cole’s world, Dark Needs at Night’s Edge does stand on its own. However, for a richer read (as all the supporting characters have appeared in previous books), I recommend reading the entire series, the order of which can be found by clicking here.

Dark Needs at Night’s Edge is a fantastic addition to Cole’s already incredible series. A sexy, tortured hero, an enchanting heroine, an engaging plot, and a beautiful love story all delivered by a truly superb writer make Dark Needs at Night’s Edge a must read!!!

Lilies and Lies by Tara Greenbaum: A Must Read

**Note: this review is spoiler-free, so read on without fear**

Jillian Connelly has had it with men who lie to her. The struggling florist has ditched her cheating fiancé and is just hoping to make it through her best friend’s wedding (where said ex is the best man). In a modern twist on the classic Hollywood “meet cute,” Jillian meets Garrett Guinness; charming, unemployed, newly-moved to her hometown. There’s just one problem.

Garrett McGuinness, billionaire hotelier has given up his flashy, New York lifestyle and hopes to have a few days of peace before the opening of his new hotel. When sparks fly between him and Jillian, Garrett doesn’t want to ruin it with his famous name, so he tells a few little lies. The problem is, Garrett has now painted himself into a corner with no way out in sight.

This is the first book I’ve read by Tara Greenbaum and definitely won’t be my last. Lilies and Lies reminds me of the sexy romantic comedies of the ‘50s and ‘60s (think Pillow Talk). You have an intelligent, honest heroine, a seductive hero who (though he lies to the heroine) is a good man at heart. Add a fun, fast-paced plot, endearing supporting characters, and some seriously steamy love scenes, and you have Greenbaum’s novel. Overall I found Lilies and Lies to be charming, witty, sexy, and utterly entertaining.

Reading Lilies and Lies is akin to sipping your favorite fruity cocktail by the poolside: refreshing, sweet, and just a touch naughty. A definite must-read!!!!

Lilies and Lies is published by Resplendence Publishing. To purchase (or for more information), click here.

Dawn's Awakening by Lora Leigh: My February Must Read

**Note: this review is spoiler-free, so read on without fear**

In the near future, there is a species that lives alongside humans. They were created by evil scientists from a combination of human and animal DNA. They were trained to be weapons. They were tortured, they were raped, and they were stripped of their humanity. And from the horror of those labs came men and women with strength, intelligence, and compassion the world could never have imagined. Scarred to the depths of their souls by the past, but full of hope and determination for a better future, the trials they go through will break your heart while the love they find will bring you joy. They are the Breeds, and they will knock your socks off.

Lora Leigh Dawn’s Awakening is the story of Dawn Daniels and Seth Lawrence. Dawn is a Cougar Breed, one who had been raped and tortured repeatedly as a child. Now she’s stronger, a Breed Enforcer, but still plagued constantly by memories of what had been done to her. For ten years she and Seth have known they were mates, but the nightmare that was her past and misunderstandings on both sides have kept them from one another until the mating heat, the driving biological reaction between mates, has almost completely faded from Seth. But then Seth’s life is at risk, and Dawn will do anything to protect and claim the man that is her mate.

Dawn’s Awakening shows Leigh’s writing at its best. The story is both heartbreaking and achingly romantic. Dawn’s past haunts her, but she has not only survived, she has come through with strength and dignity that is awe-inspiring. With Seth’s love and help, Dawn continues to grow and cope more fully with what was done to her.

Seth has become my absolute favorite of Leigh’s heroes. He’s an alpha to the core, but the tenderness he shows with his mate and the love he has for her makes for some truly beautiful scenes best left for a reader to discover on their own.

There’s also a mystery to be solved regarding the enemy out to destroy Dawn and Seth, secrets that will be revealed, and an enigmatic character who will undoubtedly play a role in future books. Fans of the Breed series will meet some of their favorite characters again, such as Callan Lyons, Dash, Elizabeth, and Cassie Sinclair, Dane Vanderale, and the sexy, calculating Jonas Wyatt (who I am firmly convinced needs to catch a break from someone). There are also new Breeds to meet and ones to get to know better.

Leigh wrote Dawn’s Awakening as a stand-alone book, and first-time readers won’t miss out on any vital information. However, for a richer read, I recommend reading the first four Breed books (Tempting the Beast, The Man Within, Elizabeth’s Wolf, and Kiss of Heat). You will get to know Dawn and Seth from the beginning and read some of the events that are talked about in Dawn’s Awakening. For new readers of the Breed series, the reading order can be found by clicking here. I’m sure after Dawn’s Awakening you will want to rush out and read the rest of these addictive stories.

I highly recommend Dawn’s Awakening. It’s a compelling read that will break your heart and make you sigh over the hero’s romantic actions. Dawn and Seth have been long overdue for their happily ever after, but their story was well worth the wait.

I Need That Hero

What is it, dear readers, that makes a hero stand out for you? Is it sex appeal? A sense of humor? A scarred soul? His tenderness? Dominance? Any or all of the above or something else?

Right now Nalini Singh has a contest going on - The Mine to Possess Hot Men Contest. Her question, and mine, is about heroes. Who’s your favorite and why?

I have so many favorites (Dorian, Zsadist, Jonas….*sigh*), but the one that has to stand above all the rest would be Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Acheron. For nearly six years, I’ve read, loved, and been heartbroken over this hero. Ash is so full of love for people, he does everything in his power to protect the world, and yet others never see it as enough. I suppose it’s because only a handful know what it costs Ash to do what he does; the sacrifices willingly makes time and again for the happiness of others. He is self-sacrifice personified.

From what we have seen so far, Acheron’s past is full of pain with little or nothing to relieve it. He has been betrayed time and again by those he lets into his heart, but even so, he continues believing in others. For someone who almost never cries over a book, it says a lot that I will have tissues on hand for the first half of his book when it comes out this August.

Ash is has the whole package for me. He’s loving, giving, and has so many wounds that I would love to heal. And yes, there is the all-out sexy factor. His physical perfection isn’t what makes me love him above all else, but it’s nothing to dismiss either.

I really don’t have the words to do Acheron justice. He’s one of the many reasons I am simply in awe of Sherrilyn Kenyon. Acheron has been my number one hero since I was 18 years old, and I don’t think anything can ever change that; he has it all.

So now that you all know my favorite hero, who’s yours? Leave a comment and let me know who your favorite(s) are and why :)

And don't forget: Nalini's newest Psy-Changeling book, Mine to Possess, will be in stores February 5th.

If you've never read Nalini's books, (1) check out the reading order for the series and then (2) run as fast as you can to the nearest bookstore!!!!

Blog Update

Hello everyone,

Real life has been incredibly busy and I haven't had time to update my blog. Hopefully that will change in the very near future.

At the moment, I have a new project going on here at Wit and Sin. I'm very particular about reading series in order and I often have friends come and ask me for book recommendations and the order of the books. For ease of reference, I have started putting together posts with authors books and their series. The list is by no means complete at the moment, I will be adding authors and editing as I have time (for instance, as of right now the Sherrilyn Kenyon information is only about her Dark Hunter books).

The links are on the right side of this page. On the individual pages you will find different series of the authors listed, the order of the books, the names of each book's hero and heroine, and, if needed, the character's species.

Please note: The information on these lists were put together by me. Always rely on information provided by the author (such as on their website) before information provided by a fan such as myself. That being said, the information I provide is accurate to the best of my knowledge and I will try to update it as needed.

I hope this is useful :)
