    I have loved stories particularly the romantic kind since I was very young I spent a decade working in an office, but I ve since dedicated myself to writing I ve traveled to many wonderful places around the world, including the haunted Scottish castle in which I got married Though I live outside Chicago with my family, my heart will always belong to Australia The books listed here on my page are ones that have influenced my writing, that have spoken to me in some deep and wonderful way, and that I enthusiastically recommend.

    I received this book unsolicited in the mail for review, read the blurb and knew I had to try it out It is a fresh take on a PNR world There are no vamps, shifters, or fae but aliens Let me set up the world.About 150 years ago, two sets of aliens came to earth, the Ofarians and the Tedrans and are enemies They currently live on Earth and no humans or as they call them, primaries, know of their existence I don t want to really go into why they came to Earth or their relationship with each other b [...]

    Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    Kitty s review posted on Guilty PleasuresThis is not your normal paranormal book It is so much than alpha male meets female, the chase and seduction of said female and the realization that love can be found at first sight Hanna Martine weaves a story filled with trust, mistrust, love, hate and suspense that had me turning the pages and wondering what twist or turn would be happening next, where the story was going, how it would get there and, would there be an HEA for Gwen and Reed.Gwen, the da [...]

    I don t know how Berkley executive editor Cindy Hwang does it Does she have a crack team of interns junior editors who lurk on the internet or rifle through unguarded piles of queries Does Cindy sit at the head of a long table, hands folded, as nervous agents pitch her their clients books in wavering voices Does she have a hidden room containing a sentient supercomputer Did she get a letter from an owl when she was ten Did she fall into nuclear waste while clutching an e reader loaded with roman [...]

    2.75 stars I m not having much luck with these Dear Author recommendations I can see why it appealed to them though because the book does have a fairly unique premise A mix of Paranormal Romance and light Scifi Gwen is an Ofarian, a race of people who have power over water They have lived on Earth, masquerading as human for centuries, their prosperity tied up with a profitable substance called Mendacia Her whole world comes crashing down and the Ofarian leaders lies are exposed the day she is ki [...]

    I so enjoyed this book You know when you open a book by a new author and you hope that it will be great That is what happened here I cant explain how much I enjoyed it I was hooked from page one and had a hard time putting it down to cook dinner There were so many twists and turns I think the romance was secondary but it felt right Reed was so frustrating at times Mr whiplash I swear One moment sweet and fierce and the next ice cold I hated The Retriever that he became But by the end he had me a [...]

    My review can also be found on my blog Collections.Liquid Lies is about a Secondary, an Ofarian, named Gwen Carroway It s her story of growth and finding the strength to help and protect the lives of others And also, following her heart no matter what she has been told to believe her entire life Through it all she falls in love with the dangerous, alluring Primary or human known as Reed Scott, who helps her along the way even though the secrets between them threaten to break the connection they [...]

    This is a paranormal alien romance story and while I found the underlying story reasonable the romance angle was abysmal and basically ruined what could have been a good book The hero Reed was completely unlikable I do not understand why Grace would have any feelings for him at all He KIDNAPPED her for MONEY, and because he liked the adrenalin rush, even after he found out it was the woman he was interested in I think we are supposed to think he was ok because he stayed afterwards to protect her [...]

    I m going to just come out and say this I loved this book, truly TRULY loved it I loved the world I read a lot of paranormal romance but this world was totally unique And yet it was completely relatable and relevant to our own world and prejudices I LOVED the author s voice and style lyrical and insightful And the hero, Reed hello spoon and bib hot Who can resist a mountian of muscle who s a big warm softie on the inside The heroine was great too, although I was a little jealous of her consideri [...]

    4.5 stars The talent that makes Gwen so valuable to her family s global corporation has made her a target, but when she is kidnapped by the dangerous and intriguing Reed, with whom she s shared a forbidden attraction, and discovers the price the family business has extracted for their success, Gwen will struggle to make things right for everyone concerned, but she will need Reed to move beyond the job if she has any hope of succeeding.Even though I generally am not fond of kidnapping romances, I [...]

    As seen on Rabidreads Liquid Lies probably could have done with some cuts It takes awhile for the passion we all know is going to happen to happen and it takes stars for Gwen, our diplomatic protagonist, to make the critical decisions This tremendous delay comes with some benefits.When Reed and Gwen finally do connect I hope that isn t too much of a spoiler , it feels like much has passed between them and not just a lot of dialogue, mainly a lot of tension Even with all the space the two charact [...]

    I had no real idea what this book would be like and I started it primarily because of a reading challenge I totally enjoyed it, which is something I did not really expect I m glad I ve read it and am certainly going to get my hands on the next instalment It would be a shame not to know that my weakness for hurt souls is fully engaged The sequel is centred on Xavier, who has gotten really interesting the we got to see of him in this book I am dying of curiosity here now evil, evil blurb at the e [...]

    I picked up this story Hanna Martine on a you might also like recommendation by I hate to admit it, but they were right I really liked this story I was fascinated by the concept of elementals embodied in a race called Ofarians The main character, Gwen a surprisingly normal name for someone so exotic can literally become liquid Is she the Lie Maybe, maybe not The title really refers to a bottle of magic which they sell secretly across the world Their entire race has blended into our society and b [...]

    I saw some really good buzz about Liquid Lies and since I ve been on a bit of a paranormal kick lately I decided to give it a try Besides that, I m a sucker for the kidnapper falls for victim troupe I wasn t disappointed.I m not sure paranormal is the correct term to describe Liquid Lies I definitely would classify this book along the lines of light sci fi kinda like the TV show V except the primaries humans have no idea about the secondaries aliens living among them Do you believe there could [...]

    Courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyLIQUID LIES, the first book in The Elementals series, is a blend of paranormal and light sci fi romance that despite its enticing description didn t grab me as much as I expected I enjoyed learning about how Gwen and her race of aliens called Ofarians came to Earth I was a little curious about how they could have remained hidden on Earth for so long and was amazed at how easily they seemed to infiltrate the human world becoming so rich and powerful by selling [...]

    With all the books I have on my TBR shelf I try not to pick up anything random at the bookstore I must admit it was the cover that drew me in and then the blurb on the back convinced me that this book might just be right up my alley This book was terrific It is an ambitious multi layered tale and while Ms Martine doesn t always succeed she hits than misses.If President Barack Obama could have any super power, it would be the ability to speak any language Gwen Carroway has that gift It makes her [...]

    This book is the perfect example why an author should take care not to make a secondary character interesting than one of the lead characters.Don t get me wrong this is a very nice Paranormal Romance, but the hero, Reed, wasn t half as interesting as Xavier, one of the other male characters and one of the bad guys of course I kept wishing this story had been about Xavier instead of Reed Reed was ok, but I didn t feel he and Gwen made a great match, even though he was bald and sounded like the p [...]
