Lynne Connolly‘s review of The Greek Tycoon’s Disobedient Bride by Lynne Graham Contemporary romance released by Harlequin Presents 1 Dec 08 The title is even worse than usual, because of the adjective. It put up my hackles from the start, but then, the stupid HMB titles usually do. Lynne Graham is very hit or miss [...]
Sarah’s review of His Woman by Diana Cosby Historical Romance published by Zebra 1 Dec 08 Through the wonderful world of Facebook, I learned of Ms. Cosby’s MacGruder Brothers series. Her website boasts ‘Romance Edged With Danger’ and I must say, like her daring Highlanders, Ms. Cosby delivers full force.
Limecello’s Duckies Do Series reviews of the Holidays Abroad Series by Merline Lovelace Contemporary romances released by Harlequin Nov 2008 – Jan 2009 I quite fancy the idea of Christmas in summer (especially during a sweltering heat wave), so when I read the Duke’s New Year’s Resolution, I realized I was in the middle of [...]
Sandy M’s review of Between the Devil and Desire (Scoundrels of St. James, Book 2) by Lorraine Heath Historical Romance published by Avon 30 Dec 08 These scoundrels of St. James are so far leaving me emotionally exhausted after reading their stories. This second book in the series features Jack Dodger, a nimble-fingered facsimile of [...]
Sandy M’s review of Stolen Fury (Stolen Series, Book 1) by Elisabeth Naughton Romantic Suspense published by Love Spell 30 Dec 08 I don’t read a huge amount of romantic suspense. Not that I don’t like it, I just have loads of historicals and paranormals to get through in the TBR mountain. But thanks to [...]
Lawson’s review of A Bride for His Convenience by Edith Layton Historical romance released by Avon 25 Nov 08 Having a marriage of convenience story is a tried and true plot device and one I’ve seen plenty of. I tend to enjoy them, as they can give some unexpected results from time to time. There’s [...]
Limecello’s review of Yule be Mine by Jennifer LaBrecque Contemporary romance released by Harlequin Blaze on 1 Dec 08 Who doesn’t love a little Christmas in April? It was snowing in all three states I was the last week of March, so I found it was fitting. I like reading everything in a book, so [...]
Liviania’s review of Undying (Clare Point, Book 2) by V.K. Forrest (No author website found) Paranormal romance released by Kensington 1 Dec 08 I didn’t even read the blurb before starting Undying. All I knew was that there were vampires. (This confused me as the first chapter seemed to be through the point-of-view of a [...]
Sandy M’s review of Love Without Blood by Raz Steel Paranormal Romance published by Love Spell 30 Dec 08 I was browsing my local Target and, of course, couldn’t stay away from the book aisle. I picked this book up, thought the blurb sounded good, so decided to try it. One of those impulse buys [...]
Limecello’s review of Restless (Indecent Proposals Miniseries, Book 3) by Tori Carrington Contemporary romance published by Harlequin Blaze on 1 Dec 08 This is the third and final book to Tori Carrington’s Indecent Proposals series, and it’s my favorite of the bunch. The first two are Shameless and Reckless. The books can be read alone, [...]
LauraJ’s review of Unraveled by Jaci Burton Contemporary Romance eBook Novella released by Samhain 23 Dec 08 I will admit, while I have heard of Jaci Burton and have heard good things, I have never read one of her stories. I like novellas for the reason I can check-out the author’s writing without investing a [...]
Limecello’s review of Glitter Baby by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Fiction re-released by Avon on 30 Dec 08 Susan Elizabeth Phillips is one of my favorite authors. Favorite. Glitter Baby is one of the few novels that Ms. Phillips wrote that I hadn’t yet read due to availability, so I’m so glad this one was reprinted. [...]
LauraD’s review of Whisper No Lies (Black Ops, Book 3) by Cindy Gerard Contemporary romantic suspense released by Pocket 30 Dec 08 There is a lot to be said for pure escapism in literature, and for me a good contemporary romance/suspense is just about the best kind of candy. Cindy Gerard is currently writing some [...]
Shannon C.’s review of The Flame (Sons of Destiny, Book 7) by Jean Johnson Fantasy romance released by Berkley Trade/Sensation 2 Dec 08 As I’ve said in my last few reviews of the books in this series, I’ve been a slavish follower of Ms. Johnson ever since I discovered her books. They have a combination [...]
LauraD’s review of At Grave’s End (Night Huntress, Book 3) by Jeaniene Frost Urban fantasy released by Avon 30 Dec 08 Cat’s back! Jeaniene Frost’s killer vampire huntress Cat Crawfield and her sexy bloodsucker of a boyfriend, Bones, have returned for a third book, and oh my is it fun!
