Angela’s Review:
I really love the idea of an immortal romance, however there was so much world and character building that the story line wasn't there for me.
I kept hearing about the villainous, Annabel and only saw her once through the entire and for me it was the best scene. Major cat fight and there was so much action. I felt the hero's reaction was not very emotional. His girlfriend is in danger of being murdered...and he has a company to run!
I'm giving it a three based on the fact that this writer's imagination is off the chain, but the plot needs to be strengthened and the story needs to be condensed to keep it moving forward. If you love immortal romances and want to give this a chance, I would suggest reading the previous books, as this is really not a stand-alone read in my opinion.
Also, this ended on a major cliffhanger!

Angela’s Review:

Since reading book one of the Elders and Welders series by Margaret Foxe I have been anxiously awaiting to read this story. Ms. Foxe did not disappoint!

The author's imagination knows no bounds, and I quickly found myself wrapped into a world steampunk and vampires!

I was thrilled when Ms. Foxe brought Elijah Drexler and Lady Christiana for this story. Though the hero is an alpha, the heroine's strength and years of unrequited love was heart wrenching and real.

I don't want to give any spoilers, but this story will have you on the edge of your seat. If you love a hot steampunk with a bit of paranormal mixed in, you'll love A Dark Heart by Margaret Foxe!

Roseanna's Review of Slow Ride by Kat Morrisey


Contemporary Romance/218 Pages
Buy Link: Amazon 

Kyla O’Grady hit the gas and drove her Mustang out of Rock River, Pennsylvania, with one goal in mind: to find somewhere to start over. Her life had gone sideways back home and Kyla needs something new, something fresh, and to find the music again. But on a stretch of road off the coast of Maine, her car has other ideas. Broken down just inside the town limits of Ashten Falls, Maine, Kyla is stranded.
Cooper Moretto has a problem. In fact, the whole town of Ashten Falls has a problem, in the form of a corrupt town official. Cooper had enough on his plate to last a lifetime, but on a stretch of highway heading into the town, he spots a ’67 Mustang Coupe and does what any decent mechanic would do: stop to help. But getting this car back on the road is the last thing on his mind when he sees its owner, singing as if she weren’t in the middle of nowhere.
Kyla is speeding away from her past, unsure how to move forward. Cooper has been on cruise control, just hoping to get through every day without being arrested or harassed. Can the two slow down long enough to see that maybe the answers to both their problems lie in each other? And can they survive when enemies lurking in the shadows try to destroy them both?
Sensuality Level: Sensual

 Roseanna Review  
I was hooked from page one. Between the crocked cops, the diverse characters, and the mustang name Lola, I was thoroughly entertained. The story became somewhat predictable near the end, to me at least. I was pleased with the growth that Kyla had throughout the book. The secondary characters were well developed, and I hope that they will get their own book in the future. Grab your beverage, a throw, and get comfortable while visiting this small town.

Nadene's Satin Sheets Review of Special Angel by Nancy Loyan








Angelique is no ordinary diva. She’s the world’s greatest singer—and mystery. That’s why Brian Andrews, an American investigative reporter at Our World magazine, is assigned to do what others have failed: uncover Angelique’s past and secrets. 

But Angelique herself has never known her past and fears that she will never see her future, thanks to a controlling couple who hold her career and life in their tight fists. Raised by nuns in an abbey in France, she has never known freedom. Brian offers her hope by aiding in her escape from her sequestered life, putting his career on the line. 

Is he after the glory of the big story, or is he the one person Angelique can finally trust to help her?


This was quite an entertaining and unique read.  I was pulled into the story from the very first page and I found it very difficult to put it down.  Special Angel is a beautiful story of love, loss and forgiveness. It depicts the lengths persons will go to just to satisfy their greed and to cover up their wrongs.  It shows also the ripple effect one person’s action can have on the lives of those close to them.

I totally fell in love with Angelique. She is a singer with the most beautiful voice.  She had led a secluded life for most of her years.  She is strong, innocent and pure.  She has been through so much that I was happy to see her finally gain her freedom and experience love.

My least favourite characters are Morris and Edwina Davidson. It is not possible to go into much detail about these two without giving away the story, so you will just have to read the story for yourself to find out why they disgust me so much.

Special Angel brought out an array of emotions. It made angry, sad and happy. It was a very poignant story that is going to be staying with me for a very long time.

If you love your romance stories with a lot of heart then this book is for you and I hope you enjoy it like I did.
