Over the forty-plus years I’ve been reading romance, I’ve not been a fan of recent US history – bad American that I am. Maybe I was just reading the wrong book or the wrong author. Because Carrie Lofty has now made a mini-fan out of me – at least for the WWII era. Joe and [...]
The best part about writing a historical romance set in WWII is that I got to write a happy ending. A lot of books set during the war are women’s, historical, or literary fiction, where a happy ending isn’t a priority. For His Very Own Girl, though? It was very much a priority!
Sandy M’s review of His Very Own Girl by Carrie Lofty Historical Romance ebook published by Pocket Star 4 Sep 12 I’m very glad this book is as good as it is. I was given a PDF for my Kobo, but from the very beginning, for some reason, I had problems every other page with [...]

Alex and Polly come alive the moment you meet them. Their relationship pulls no punches, and even when they’re at their worst, they’re [...]

Alicia Thomas’s review of Sundial by Carrie Lofty Time travel short story ebook published Dec 07 by Wild Rose Press Sundial is a short story, only 67 pages and is the first thing I’ve read from Wild Rose Press.
