Review - Wed to the Barbarian by Kiera Andrews

My rating:

Although a prince of one of Onan's three kingdoms, “Jem” leads a quiet life, reading erotic fantasies and caring for sick birds. He carries out few public duties and knows little of the world outside his family's palace. On one of his rare outings to attend an annual religious festival with his family, Jem is quite bored until the cleric announces that he is to wed the son of a chieftain from the estranged territory of Ergh.

Review - Fate & Fortune by Maz Maddox

My rating:

The circus has come to Stallion Ridge, and with it is Victor, a phoenix shifter who tells fortunes and does slight-of-hand tricks. Sky is irresistibly drawn to the mysterious man, but doesn't want to get close for fear of being hurt. He's also concerned about repeating nightmares that seem to foretell a grim future for the town and especially the lawmen he calls family. Sky has been something of a fixture in most of the stories in this series, although he has so far remained something of a mystery.
