What’s a witch to do when her magic is on the fritz and there’s a huge pile of laundry to be done? Easy. Flood the entire house. Everyone wants a bubbly indoor freakin’ swimming pool… right?

Just when everything is right in my life, something has to go wrong—times three. Number one: an unknown evil force wants to steal my power. Now, instead of protecting and healing the whacked out inhabitants of Assjacket, my power has wonked out on me and I’ve blasted ginormous holes all over town. Not to mention Roger the Rabbit is now sporting a pentagon of penii thanks to me and is keen on contacting the Guinness Book of World Records.


Armed with questionable voodoo skills and seriously frayed nerves, I’m Two: gonna do what any partially-sane, potty-mouthed, witch would do… I’m calling in the semi-evil, butt-ugly Bermangoggleshitz to train me. The warlock’s penchant for push-ups makes me hate him with the fire of a thousand suns, but if I can’t control my dark magic, it will control me.

Way unacceptable.

With Sassy and Cookie Witch by my side, I’ll Three: get a handle on my dark voodoo—or doodoo as I’ve renamed it—so Assjacket won’t end up as one massive crater. And I need all the help I can get. An evil like we’ve never seen is gunning for us—specifically me.

Wildly unacceptable.

We’ll be the Three Amigos. The Three Musketeers. The Three Stooges. Whatever. As the saying goes…three’s a crowd, three’s company, three’s a party.

Nope. Three’s a charm. And I’m gonna turn it on for all I’m worth.


Oh my Robyn, I am now seriously beginning to wonder just what you and your hubbie get up to when the kids are away…! I’m sure you’ll claim you just read it somewhere but I’m not so certain!

A really good funny, potty mouthed story, and the twins are adorable.

This book was really on form and I giggled my way through it.

Such a Harem?!

Six hunky, supernatural tradesmen.
One sarcastic, caffeine addicted bride.
A match made by fate … or karma?

My name is Arizona Smoke, and I have six husbands. Yup. Count 'em—six. Four sexy plumbers, one electric electrician ... and my last husband? Total prick. Our unconventional marriage is almost complete. All I need to do is reconcile with my first love, and rescue a man I’ve never met. Easy, right?

As if marrying a bunch of supernatural plumbers isn't hard enough, I also have to deal with the fact that my biological father and his six wives (yeah, I have six moms, too) are still hunting us, stalking us through sex parties hosted by demons and setting traps for us in the middle of underground supernatural raves. And you thought your family was dysfunctional!

All I wanted was a moment to breathe, a chance to get to know my new husbands in a way that was more than sexual—although I'm not exactly complaining about our time in the bedroom. But between my maniacal mother-in-law, some kidnapped lady-elementals, and the rich asshole I'm supposed to welcome into my new harem … when's a girl got time for dates? Let alone planning a seven-way ... wedding that is.

I'm Ari Smoke, spirit elemental, supernatural bada**, and hot-as-f*ck dragon chick.
Having six hot husbands is nice … but being hunted by evil sex demons, not so much.

ELEMENTS OF RUIN is a full-length comedic paranormal, reverse harem romance. This means our leading lady has six male love interests and doesn't have to choose between them. This book is full of steamy scenes, ridiculous plumbing puns, and heaps of action, intrigue, and ... well, more puns. This is book 2 of 3.

This is the next book in that punning reverse harem trilogy. And  it is just as steamy as the first book – and what’s more ends in a cliff-hanger! Forcing you therefore to order book 3 which is not yet out…. grrr

Anyway, here’s just a thought for a new career for her broke harem – Landscape Gardeners.

They have all the necessary skills.

Imagine the water features they could build – powered by electricity. pools, rills, waterfalls.

The delicate but effective lighting.

The wonderful decorative ironwork. The trellis, the benches, the features and statues.

And of course, the very healthy growing plants.

A fortune to be made…..

WARNING: This is a sexy, steamy reverse harem paranormal romance (one girl, four guys) with loads of humor, plumber puns, and group sex. Read with a glass of wine and a smile!
Four hunky, supernatural plumbers. One reluctant, slightly drunk human. A match made in heaven … or in the bathroom, rather.

My name is Arizona Smoke, and I'm the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and … uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements.

Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I'm an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.

All I wanted was hot running water and toilets that flushed, but now I'm dealing with monsters lurking in the sewers, supernatural politics, and four penniless (but totally hot) plumbers living in my crumbling old Victorian.

I'm Ari Smoke, wine aficionado, ex-barista, and a girl who is completely out of her element. Having four hot husbands is nice … but the death threats, not so much.




Oh What naughty girls these authors are – and what fun they had with puns… about plumbing! And such a fun storyline – with lots of husbands – the more the merrier seems to be their motto/creed.

So yes, it was an enjoyable light read. Not high literature but good saucy – and a bit – paranormal reading with humour and some originality.

From Elizabeth LaBan, the acclaimed author of The Restaurant Critic’s Wife, comes a captivating and very funny novel about a wife and mother’s fall from grace, and why keeping up appearances is not her biggest secret.

Tabitha Brewer wakes up one morning to find her husband gone, leaving her no way to support herself and their two children, never mind their upscale Philadelphia lifestyle. She’d confess her situation to her friends—if it wasn’t for those dreadful words of warning in his goodbye note: “I’ll tell them what you did.”

Instead, she does her best to keep up appearances, even as months pass and she can barely put food on the table—much less replace a light bulb. While she looks for a job, she lives in fear that someone will see her stuffing toilet paper into her handbag or pinching basil from a neighbor’s window box.

Soon, blindsided by catastrophe, surprised by romance, and stunned by the kindness of a stranger, Tabitha realizes she can’t keep her secrets forever. Sooner or later, someone is bound to figure out that her life is far from perfect.

An interesting novel but not really up to the humour I expected.

I also got rather irritated by Tabitha who a: did not pawn her husband’s cuff-links but used them as tips – if they had value why not use them? And b: for someone who was supposed to know how to cook she really didn’t try.

Does no-one in NY go to a market – not a foodie market but a real market – at the end of the day, when all the fruit and vegetables etc are being sold cheap? I used to go and get crates of tomatoes and peppers etc which made wonderful soup. Add some lentils (dirt cheap) and you have a filling and healthy meal! And it seemed to me, that if she was going to steal, then get something useful – like packets of beans to soak and cook for a protein rich meal…  with peanut butter all the better!

That said.
I did have some sympathy for Tabitha being abandoned like that with no warning and no idea of where the money was going to come from – but again, why didn’t she go back to the carer agency after spending the afternoon with the client and ask for money from them for the work she had done, and start working properly – even take on the receptionist job?

Oh well. Tabitha was a pampered wife with no sense of the real world and how to live in it clearly…

Eternally Yours – Forever

Eternally Yours #3

*Warning, this book contains scenes of dead people having sex, only really sexy dead people, not zombies or sparkly vampires. Rest assured, no body parts fell off during the making of these sex scenes, just bras and undies, and no fangs or hammers were used during foreplay.**

My afterlife has sunk to a new level of desperate, all because some badass demon banished my friends to the fourth dimension of the fiery pit.
When I signed up for this rescue mission, nobody told me about the bugs, hives, and sweltering heat. That I could handle. Add to that a sinfully sexy boyfriend with serious ex-fiancée issues, three temperamental giants, a psychotic demon dentist, and a really hungry soul-sucking dragon, and this trip to Hell has become the trip from Hell.
And I forgot to pack my sunscreen.

Here I am reviewing the next books in this series.

#3 Damned and Desperate

I always thought that Heaven would be dull but Tara West’s version is anything but. You wake up with no kinks in your muscles, no aches, and shiny hair. And you have your own valet – who takes whichever form you like – to look after you. Only problem seems to be that you eat cheesecake all the time and it has a numbing effect on your emotions and memory if you eat too much!

At first I was all for it, but after a while I thought, maybe not. Perhaps the top level of purgatory might be better where you have a job and friends and…

But first you have to rescue everyone who for various reasons has fallen into Hell and needs some serious ‘angel’ help to get back up the ladders.

This is a great fun and humourous series that I’m thoroughly enjoying.  Tara West has a wild imagination…
