About This Blog

This blog was started as a place to post book reviews. The books reviewed here will be mixed. Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, General Fiction, NonFiction and more. Both positve and negative reviews will be posted, as well as reviews for books written for all ages and all reading levels.

Many of the books reviewed here are ones that I have purchased for my own reading pleasure. Some, I receive free in exchange for reviews. Beginning in December, 2009 you will know which are the free ones if you read the final paragraph of my reviews.

Also of note: I choose what I will read, attempting to avoid the books on which I would end up writing a negative review... but I have been known to make mistakes. Thus you see some one and two star reviews here. Since I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, I only write them if the review was promised, or if the book was so exceedingly bad, I just had to say so. Regardless of the percentage of positive to negative reviews on this blog, I give my honest opinion each and every time, and have never received financial compensation for posting my reviews.

Note that, except for fair use portions quoted from some of the books reviewed, all copyright in the content of the reviews belongs to Lady Dragoness.

Reality Break!

Passion For The Game
Sylvia Day
Publisher: Brava (June, 2007)
Paperback: 320 pages

Rated 4 stars of 5 possible

Two noblemen have set two notorious criminals against each other, certain that one will betray the other to save himself. Yet the noblemen do not count on the pair finding such a startling affinity for each other, nor on the audacious pair's scheming solution to their common problem. Will the lady betray the pirate to see him hang? Will the reverse be true? Or will those two noblemen find the tables turned upon themselves?

Passion For The Game is a fast paced historical romance with a touch of mystery and adventure with a bit of violence included. I recommend it only for ages 18 and up due to some explicit scenes. This novel can be a welcome break from reality for consenting adults. The author captures the reader's interest and holds that interest hostage from the beginning to the end. Romance readers may find this story a change of pace from their usual fare.
