Why Romantic Suspense by Kat Martin

I love novels that include both romance and suspense/thriller elements.  I like the extra depth it gives the story.  From the start, I envision the book being as much about the developing relationship between the hero and heroine as solving the suspense/thriller mystery.  There is intrigue in both.  How will the protagonists extricate themselves from […]

Catherine Bybee’s Not Quite Perfect Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Posted  September 20, 2016  by  Novels Alive Admin

I’m a pantser, everyone who has ever read an interview about me understands that I don’t plot my books by any stretch. However, an outline of a character would be the exception to my ‘no plotting’ rule. That isn’t to say I know everything there is to know about my characters when I begin a […]

Posted  September 20, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

How to Draw a Handful of Hearts—Inspiration for My Sweet Regency Series If truth be told, the inspiration for this series, Handful of Hearts, began in 2011 as I was writing a short story to enter in a local writing contest. I was still very new to the writing game, but the contest was free […]

Wendi Christner’s WATER BEARER and giveaway

Posted  September 2, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

Years ago I was in one of those “chick flick-day in bed” moods and I found “A Walk To Remember” on television. I had read every book Sparks had written to that point…except this one. Ahh…perfect. Maybe I should mention my current mood had been induced by yet another personal rejection letter from yet another […]

The music had a lively air and Miss Katherine Locke would’ve thought herself fortunate to be out again in Society after a long, cold, dull winter in Somerset save that her partner, Lord Haversham, was the rudest man in London.

3.5 Stars A CERTAIN AGE by Beatriz Williams

Posted  July 28, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

A CERTAIN AGE is my first book by Beatriz Williams and I haven’t decided yet if I’ll search out another. Theresa was by far my favorite but the other characters paled a bit beside her.  So, the jury’s still out. As the freedom of the Jazz Age transforms New York City, the iridescent Mrs. Theresa Marshall […]

3 Star Review: What We Become by Arturo Perez-Reverte

Posted  July 28, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

I discovered Perez-Reverte ages ago with THE CLUB DUMAS which was made into a horrific movie featuring Johnny Depp. His writing is beautifully descriptive and fluid. He’s written stand-alones as well as the series featuring Captain Alatriste. Perez -Reverte is an auto buy for me. However, as much as I love his writing I couldn’t […]
