My Review There is something about the word underneath the waves that is so alluring to me.  The salt water, the sand, the beauty of a world so deep that those of us with legs rarely get to experience it.  This book had all of that and so much more. Merminia is the story of […]

My Review I have loved every book in the Portland Storm series and this one is a great addition to the series!  It is a collection of epilogues to the first four books in the series, so we get to revisit some of our favorite couples.  And the story lines are just as emotionally driven as ever, […]

My Review Forest of Whispers is set in the villages and forest of Bavaria, in a time of fear brought on by the spreading plague and the witches that wield their magic in the forest.  The fear of the unknown is beginning to give way to hysteria, placing the blame at the hands of a […]
