Alicia’s review of Driven by Eve Kenin Sci-Fi/Speculative Romance released by Shomi on 28 Aug 07 Have you ever let a book get pushed off and pushed off? Not for any good reason, you just don’t get to it? When you finally read it did you ever really regret not reading it sooner? Sybil keeps [...]
Alicia’s review of Netherwood by Michele Lang SciFi/Speculative Romance released by Shomi on 26 Feb 08 On her site Michele Lang describes Netherwood as “a futuristic Robin Hood story.” It is, but it’s way more than that. Netherwood is Robin Hood with The Matrix and I Robot thrown in and a sort of Aeon Flux [...]
Alicia’s review of Mind Games by Merline Lovelace Paranormal romance released by Silhouette Nocturne on 1 Apr 08 If I’m going to read a paranormal romance, it’s probably about psychic ability. Not communicating with the dead or predicting the future, but telekinesis or telepathy. Though they aren’t as common as the witches, vamps, and weres [...]
Alicia’s review of Unlawful Contact by Pamela Clare Contemporary romantic suspense released by Berkley 1 Apr 08 I had only read Pamela Clare’s historicals until now. I read this book because of what she posted about her experiences with prison and prisoners. Just the fact that she knew what she was writing about drew me in. [...]
Alicia’s Lightning Reviews of The Wallflower Series by Lisa Kleypas Historical romance series released by Avon from Nov 04 thru Jul 06 In February I read the entire Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. I am so glad I did. I had gotten bogged down after reading a couple of blah books. When I found myself [...]
Alicia’s review of Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas Historical romance released by Bantam Books 25 Mar 08 I went into this book knowing nothing except that it was a romance and I could count on getting a happy ending. It’s a good thing I knew that, though, because this couple put me through the wringer.
What have I missed? Does anyone know why The Perfect Wife by Victoria Alexander, a REPRINT!, is # 1 on the NY Times Best Seller List? The reader reviews I’m finding do not compute. Who out there is buying all these books?
Alicia’s review of Sizzle and Burn (The Arcane Society, Book 3) by Jayne Ann Krentz Paranormal romance released by Putnam on 15 Jan 08 I decided to review Sizzle and Burn in preparation for the release of The Third Circle (Arcane 4) March 25th. I’m a big JAK fan but with so many great older [...]
Alicia’s review of Freefall by JoAnn Ross Romantic suspense released by Signet on 5 Feb 08 I’m a sucker for good Romantic Suspense, especially when the author has an obvious love for her subject. I only had to read the excerpt for Freefall and I had to have it. I hadn’t read JoAnn Ross before [...]
Alicia’s review of Let Sleeping Rogues Lie (School for Heiresses, Book 4) by Sabrina Jeffries Historical romance released by Pocket on 19 Feb 08 I actually decided to read this book after the Valenduckie posts. I loved Sabrina Jeffries posts here at TGTBTU so it was natural to want to read her book when I [...]

Alicia’s review of Guarded Heart (Masters at Arms) by Jennifer Blake Historical romance released 1 Feb 08 by Mira I read this book for a few reasons. First, I read Clay a couple of years ago and loved it. I wanted to read the rest of the Louisiana Gentleman series but it never happened for one [...]
Alicia’s review of Make Me a Match (One True Love, Book 1) by Diana Holquist Contemporary romance released 1 Sep 06 by Forever Sybil did not get me a copy this book. *pout* I didn’t mind too much – it is definitely worth the money. I’m going backwards, here, because I read the sequel, The Sexiest Man Alive, first. [...]
Alicia’s review of The Harlot’s Daughter by Blythe Gifford Historical romance released 1 Oct 07 from Harlequin I love early medievals, so The Harlot’s Daughter, set in 1386 looked like a good choice. I was also pulled in by the choice of story. The major events happened and a lot of the characters were actually [...]
