A Gentleman's Position by KJ Charles - This is the last of the Society of Gentlemen novels, and I adored it. It's Richard and David's story, primarily. I've been intrigued by David from the start, and annoyed by Richard, but I really understood and liked Richard by the end of this one. The plot and characters are interwoven throughout the series so it's best to read them in order. In fact, the way everything is woven together across the books - plot, character, real historical events - is brilliant. Every little plot thread is pulled together in this last installment, and the only thing I didn't like is that it's over. I finished the book and went right back to the beginning of the series and read them all over again. You need to read these if you haven't. Seriously, go read them. I'll wait.
Death by Silver and A Death at the Dionysus Club by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold - I've had my eye on this series for a while now, and when they went on sale last month I grabbed both books. They're Victorian paranormal mysteries. The magical system is well done and intriguing, and I enjoyed the characters. I could wish the romance was a little better developed in the first book, but I thoroughly enjoyed them. I've heard there's going to a third book, which I am thrilled for already.
Dirty Heart by Rhys Ford - This is the end to another series that I've enjoyed, a contemporary romantic suspense. It ended the series well, answering the questions that needed to be answered and giving Cole and Jae a lovely HEA, but I'll miss these characters. If you haven't read the series, it's best to read in order, so start with Dirty Kiss.
The High King's Golden Tongue by Megan Derr - A fantasy filled with suspense and intrigue and romance. Megan Derr originally wrote a short by the same name that I enjoyed as well, and I was very excited to read the expanded version. It was even better than the original. And the cover is gorgeous. I believe there's more coming in this series as well, which makes me happy.
Brotherhood in Death by JD Robb - This is the 42nd book in the In Death series, and I still read them all as they come out. I've enjoyed some more than others, but it's always enjoyable to revisit Eve and Roarke and their friends. In this one, I especially enjoyed Eve's relationship with Mr Mira, which is very sweet.
Rag and Bone by KJ Charles - This novel follows up a novella called A Queer Trade, which introduced two new characters in the Magpies world. I loved the novella and I loved the novel too (you probably know by now that KJ Charles is an auto-buy author for me). I also loved how it seamlessly fit into the Magpie universe and seeing those characters through new eyes. I'm hoping for more.
Cardinal Sins by Lissa Kasey - I read very few post-apocalyptic but the cover of the first book in the series drew me to it, and I gave it a chance. I really enjoyed it, and I enjoyed this second book too. Probably best to read in order since the characters and events in book one are very present in book two. I'm looking forward to the final book in the series which will be out later this month.
Strong Signal by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell - I've read and enjoyed books by each of these authors individually so I knew I would have to read this one as soon as I heard of it. The premise of the two MCs meeting in an online gaming context sounded adorable, and it was, but this book was so much more than that. Emotional and sexy with a lovely, satisfying HEA.
Dancer of Death by Jordan L Hawk - Jordan L Hawk is another favorite author of mine, so I was looking forward to this new installment in the paranormal SPECTR series. I loved it. I love getting more of John, Gray, and Caleb and learning more about Zahira. And there was ballet in this one too!
