Dinca’s Duckies Do Series review of The Kelley Legacy by Ferrarella, Cornelison, Barrett, Cassidy, Kennedy & Dees Romantic Suspense published by Harlequin Romantic Suspense The Kelley Legacy Series has a really good story arc with authors I have enjoyed in the past.

Sandy M’s review of Secrets to Seducing a Scot (Highland Knaves, Book 2) by Michelle Marcos Historical Romance published by St. Martin’s 2 Aug 11 I’ve obviously had this book for a while. For some reason I just didn’t pick it up until recently. While it’s not a story that wows you to no [...]
Ash’s review of Riptide (Cutter Cay Series, Book 2) by Cherry Adair Romantic Suspense published by St. Martins 30 Aug 11 I was hoping this book would be better than the first one, but sadly that isn’t the case.

LynneC’s review of The Power and the Glory by Kimberly Lang Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 2 Aug 11 There’s something vaguely disturbing about having a romance with a title from the Lord’s Prayer.

Ash’s review of Secrets to Seducing a Scot (Highland Knaves, Book 1) by Michelle Marcos Historical Romance published by St. Martins 02 Aug 11 This will be a short review because I feel like there isn’t much to say. It’s an okay story about okay characters.

Dinca’s review of Gold Rush Groom by Jenna Kernan Historical Romance published by Harlequin Historical 23 Aug 11 Welcome to the Yukon and a delightful story with a heroine full of determination, ingenuity and just plain common sense, and an uppity New York greenhorn.

Sandy M’s review of Secret Life of a Scandalous Debutante by Bronwyn Scott Historical Romance published by Harlequin Historical 23 Aug 11 I always enjoy reading Bronwyn Scott.

LynneC’s review of Too Wild To Hold (Legendary Lovers, Book 2) by Julie Leto Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 23 Aug 11 This is the first book I’ve read by Julie Leto, I think, and I had a good time with it. It isn’t without its faults, but I would recommend it.
Dinca’s review of Shifting Heat (Storm Series, Book 6) by Lynne Connolly Paranormal Romance published by Ellora’s Cave 17 Aug 11 In Shifting Heat you will find more than heat. You will find fire… in the blood, under the skin, not to mention in a flame-scorched world of flying dragons. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline [...]
Sandy M’s review of Ecstasy by Bella Andre Contemporary Romance erotic short story ebook published by Bella Andre 1 Aug 11 When I read the first few paragraphs of this book, I kept thinking, “Shades of Romancing the Stone” – that first adventure scene where you end up being relieved it’s not really the movie [...]
Sandy M’s review of In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy, Book 1) by Maya Banks Historical Romance published by Ballantine Books 30 Aug 11 I have anticipated reading this book for a while now.
