#HumpDayReviews: Incognegro by Mat Johnson

Yesterday I picked up a copy of Incognegro, written by author Mat Johnson (Pym, Loving Day) with illustrations by Warren Pleece, from my local library. It's a quick read, so I chewed through it over lunch, and really enjoyed the tale.

#HumpDayReviews: From Prussia With Love by Tina Christopher

Last week I posted an interview with Tina Christopher, author of From Prussia With Love, a sort of "steampunk James Bond" story with plenty of heat. And today I'm going to share some of my thoughts on this erotic romance, the first in the Victoria's Secret Agents series. So, first off let me state that I'm typically not a steampunk reader, but the erotica aspect had me intrigued. I'm still not Continue Reading...
