ARC Review: Dirty Money by Jessica Clare

Series:     Roughneck Billionaires #1
Pub. Date:Jan. 17, 2017
Publisher:Intermix/Berkley
Length:198 pages
Source:NetGalley

I am totally excited about this new series from Jessica Clare. I don't read a ton of contemporary romance, but this one piqued my interest. Roughneck Billionaires, y'all! Not the polished hoity toity money bags born with silver spoons in their mouth... but good ol' country boys that work hard and play hard and aren't afraid to get down and dirty in the boardroom or the bedroom. Yes, please!

Audiobook Review: Skinwalker by Faith Hunter

Series:     Jane Yellowrock #1
Pub. Date:April 13, 2010
Publisher:Self-pub
Narrator:Khristine Hvam
Length:14 hrs 34 min

I'm late to the game on this series and author. I was first introduced to Faith Hunter through her new Soulwood series, a spinoff of this one. I fell in love with the unique characters so hard that I knew I had to go back to the beginning and find out about Jane Yellowrock, and Faith Hunter's brand of supernatural.

I should mention that I didn't realize there were seven prequels to the series before I started listening to this audiobook. There were numerous references to past events so I thought I missed a book... which led me to investigate. Looks like I missed seven short stories. But it didn't kill enjoyment of this first full book, just made me feel like I was out of the loop sometimes.

Audiobook Review: How the Duke Was Won by Lenora Bell

Series:     Disgraceful Dukes #1
Pub. Date:December 20, 2016
Publisher:Tantor Audio
Narrator:Beverley A. Crick
Length:9 hrs 46 min
Source:Publisher

I've heard a lot of good things about Lenora Bell, so I knew I had to give her a shot. When it was time for my holiday road trip, I grabbed her debut novel - How the Duke was Won. I had not read the synopsis prior the listening, so I have to say that I was surprised (pleasantly so) and the circumstances surrounding our two main characters.
