Tough Love Baby
Story and Art: Shiuko Kano
Published by Deux Press
ISBN-10: 1934496111
ISBN-13: 978-1934496114

Review by Kris

Review originally appeared at Manic About Manga at Check it out!

Shiuko Kano-sama (notice how I've changed her honorific from -sensei to -sama) is the queen of sexy, real, crass men. I have truly been ruined. I will never find myself a man now, because hers are just too hot for words.

Tough Love Baby follows two different couples. Yoshino Kakei left his hometown three years ago, but decided to come back. Years before, Yoshino had fallen in love with his girlfriendís younger brother, Sachi. Once recognizing these feelings he didnít think it fair to Keiko and Sachi to stick around. Now that heís back little did he know that the young boy heís fallen in love with is living next door. It seems now, however, that sweet little Sachi is now a thug and treats Yoshino with contempt. Yoshino blames himself for Sachiís current bad behavior and wonders what he can do to remedy the situation. Keiko informs Yoshino that when Yoshino left the first time it really screwed Sachi up but if he leaves again who knows what will happen to Sachiís fragile psyche. He may look like a tough guy on the outside, but heís just a hopeless kid on the inside. [more]

Royal Escape
By Georgette Heyer
First published in 1938 in the United Kingdom by William Heinemann, reissued in 2008 by Sourcebooks, Inc.
ISBN: 9781402210761

Review by Ida Vega-Landow

Here is another of Georgette Heyer's "serious" books, about a real person and/or an historic event. Every now and then, the Queen of Fantasy dug deep into the history of her sceptered isle to prove that she was capable of writing more than just the frothy Regency romances she was known for. Having previously read her account of the Battle of Waterloo (see my review for "An Infamous Army"), which I found as wordy as "Gone With The Wind" but only half as entertaining, I was a bit leery about this book, which is about Charles Stuart, who became King Charles II of England on January 30, 1649 and reigned until September 3, 1685 (not Bonny Prince Charlie, who came along much later in the 1700's).

The Good Girl's Guide to Living in Sin
Story by Joselin Linder & Elena Donovan Mauer
Published by Adams Media
ISBN-10: 1598695843
ISBN-13: 978-1598695847

Review by Linda Yau

Normally this wouldn't be a book that would appeal to my senses, but this book semi-defies the statement of you could never judge a book by its cover in both positive and negative matters. This is a necessity reading if you are any of these categories a) a female who is looking to live with their boyfriend b) a female who is already living with a boyfriend and want to see what basic knowledge is there, finally c) a female who looks into reading self-help books of all types and kind.

The Pardoner's Tale
Written by Morgan Ferdinand
Published by Torquere Press
ISBN-10:  1603704191
ISBN-13:  9781603704199

Review by Jilly Gee

Nick, a private investigator and a werewolf, is committed to killing all vampires.  Alex, a vampire, is committed to annoying the hell out of Nick.  Their strange relationship never seemed unnatural, despite the fact that it started when Alex knocked Nick unconscious in an alley after the werewolf's failed attempt at stealth.  While Nick is not quite ready to admit that they are friends, he does have to admit that Alex is useful, considering that the P. I.'s investigations usually involve the capturing of demons. [more]
