Stevie‘s review of Queen Elizabeth’s Daughter: A Novel of Elizabeth I by Anne Clinard Barnhill Historical Fiction published by St. Martin’s Griffin 18 Mar 14 The Tudors always strike me as being rather under-represented when I’m looking for lightweight historical romances to read, being generally overshadowed both by the Regency period (for historical romance) and [...]

Sandy M’s review of The Collector by Nora Roberts Contemporary Romance published by Putnam Adult 15 Apr 14 I doubt there’s a superlative, adjective, or any string of words that haven’t been used to describe Nora Roberts’ books over her very long career. Though I’ve been reading her work for quite a while now, there was [...]
