This TBR Love is part audio with my new podcast—Way I See It: eBooks For Travelers.
In the third episode and to celebrate the month of love, I discuss the historical romance A Love That Never Tires, Book 5 of the Spotless series and a special mention of a story I love that’s finally in print.
Don’t forget to check out the fantastic giveaways on Prolific Works, including my own Unsettled and Settle Down Now Part 1. Download both in this giveaway before 2 March 2021:-D
Why eBooks For Travelers? Whether on the move or in armchairs, ebooks are lighter by far and—I believe—more eco-friendly!
As usual, I’ll be concentrating primarily on indie-published eBooks plus on a special mention for YA fans.

The Grifter’s Daughter by Duane Lindsey
Dani Logan is keen follow in her legendary dad’s footsteps. He’s an ageing conman who’s known by those in the know for his long cons—elaborately set up scams requiring a team with specialized skills and a big pay out. She’s also hiding from her fiancé, Nick, in a strange game that she hopes will end in a commitment. But that’s not what the story is about.
Dani soon grows bored of the small town she’s chosen as her hideaway. She hatches up a long-con involving valuable books and calls on her father’s old team to help pull it off in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. With so many little details to see to, and having to win the team’s loyalty, Dani has her fun and work cut out for her.
This was a fun and engaging read that’s hard to put down. A great read for lovers or heists and intricate hustlers.
Mad Maggie And The Ancients by Rod Raglin
This was a very interesting and satisfying read—one my mum enjoyed immensely, too.
Take a reputed witch who’s treated for schizophrenia, add in British Colombian First People’s spirituality and settings, and mix in a clash between developers and the local community and you have a very unusual and intriguing background for a romance.
The romance is slow with two very mismatched individuals who grow significantly by the end. The paranormal aspects are handled in a low-key and believable way—magic realism done very well. All in all a very satisfying read despite what the cover may say.
Musk Rain by Terri Branson
A more traditional romance (larger than life alpha male meets feisty and overwhelmed woman) set in Oklahoma. A few points makes this a good, unusual read: cross-cultural marriages and family secrets, Native American religious and divination practices, and the strange and tense situation Phoebe finds herself in after the death of her husband.
With numerous twists and turns in a solid plot, this read will satisfy telenovela fans, romance reading fans, and those looking for a story full of local color.
