LynneC’s review of Waking Up To You & Overexposed by Leslie Kelly Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 23 Apr 2013 This is a tricky review to write, because it’s been a few weeks since I read the book, and already I’m finding it hard to remember the characters and plot. However, it does closely [...]
Sandy M’s review of Roses in Moonlight (dePiaget/MacLeod Series, Book 25) by Lynn Kurland Time Travel Romance published by Jove 10 Apr 13 The backbone of Lynn Kurland’s romance is, of course, the time travel, the romance, her characters, and her writing style. She’s so very true to her style – you know exactly what [...]
LynneC’s review of Playing For Keeps by Catherine Mann Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 2 Apr 13 Let’s get the plot out of the way first. This is totally preposterous on a number of levels. First, the hero is described as a soft rock star. I didn’t think people used that term anymore, but [...]
LynneC’s review of Dangerous Refuge by Elizabeth Lowell Romantic Suspense ebook published by William Morrow 9 Apr 13 Elizabeth Lowell has written some memorable romances. To the Ends of the Earth and Tell Me No Lies have permanent places on my keeper shelf. Her lush, erotic love scenes bordered on the purple and sometimes tipped [...]
Dinca’s review of The Marshal’s Destiny (Irish Western Series, Book 1) by C.H. Admirand Western Romance published by Amazon Digital Services 7 Apr 13 I find this a very nice story with a lot of action complicated by a bit of confusion. It’s interesting the way it all plays out.

Sandy M’s review of Bristol House by Beverly Swerling Contemporary/Historical Fiction published by Viking Adult 4 Apr 13 I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this book. The blurb just sounded interesting. What I got was so much more than that.
Sandy M’s review of The Summer He Came Home (Bad Boys of Crystal Lake, Book 1) by Juliana Stone Contemporary Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 2 Apr 13 This is my first Juliana Stone book. I can tell you right now, it won’t be my last. This is a great start to a series that [...]
Veena’s review of Lord of Wicked Intentions (Lost Lords of Penbrooke, Book 3) by Lorraine Heath Historical Romance published by Avon 30 Sep 13 I have not read the previous two books in the series, but I find this story of love and redemption adorable. I subsequently heard from my good friend and fellow Duckie Sandy that Rafe’s book [...]
Willa’s review of Nameless by Claire Kent Erotic Romance published by CreateSpace 29 Apr 13 Ms. Kent was splashed around on the reading blog-o-sphere earlier this year, with her self-published book Escorted, about a male escort and his female client. I really enjoyed her voice in that story and how she stretched my reading comfort [...]
Sandy M’s review of Lone Wolf (Shifters Unbound, Book 4.5) by Jennifer Ashley Paranormal Romance novella published by InterMix 16 Apr 13 I’ve been trying to figure out why I never warmed up to this book all that much.

Sandy M’s review of Lord of Wicked Intentions (Lost Lords of Pembrook, Book 3) by Lorraine Heath Historical Romance published by Avon 30 Apr 13 Besides the fact I wait for every next Lorraine Heath book, it’s always anxious anticipation for the last story in one of her trilogies that won’t leave me be. I’ve [...]
