ARC provided by the publisher
The cover: I am so sick of rippling abs on romance novels, this cover is a welcome stray from the norm. I kinda love it ;)
One word comes to mind as I power off my Kindle and that is: Refreshing.
The Healer is a historical romance that's sweet and angsty. The pacing is perfect, the characters are well developed, and the setting was a welcome change. Not once did I find myself skimming as I read. The RN in me really enjoyed Lynelle's passion as a healer.
If you're looking for a bit of romance with historical charm, pick this book up.

ARC received from the publisher.
Let's start with the cover. I Like it. I feel like the cover is a little dark for this book, and something seems a bit off. But I do like it, it's just not my favorite.
This was a great read. I was hooked from the start with the action and intrigue. Reluctant Prince reminded me of a very toned down version of Elizabeth Norton's Eternal Guardian's series (which I loved). The romance was sweet but not overbearing.There was plenty of action so boredom was not an issue at all. And, there were dragons! Loved that tidbit in the book.

Received an ARC from Netgalley
Undertow was a pretty good read. The beginning was slow and it was the typical new girl in a new town dealing with a new high school drama, and I was a bit bored with it. Around 47% the book really picked up and sucked me in. The plot was exciting but the overuse of adverbs and lack of descriptiveness (ex: beautiful bed, delicious food, suddenly, immediately, etc) became a bit annoying.
I was reminded a bit of Twilight mixed with something new and refreshing.
Overall a good read. But this is the first in a series so expect having many unanswered questions.
