Dinca’s review of The Substitute Bride by Janet Dean Love Imspired Historical published by Harleqin 9 February 2010 This is one of the best mail-order bride stories I have read. I find the plot innovative with lots of twist and turns. Ted and Elizabeth each have a secret they don’t want to share.
Dinca’s review of Diablo (The Texans Series, Book 1) by Georgina Gentry Historical Western Romance published by Zebra 1 Feb 10 To read or not to read… that is the question. Here I find an above average hero and a wimpy heroine with a disgusting villain and a whole ranch of spineless followers.
Gwen’s review of Black Magic Sanction (Rachel Morgan and The Hollows, Book 8 ) by Kim Harrison Urban fantasy hardcover released by Eos 23 Feb 10, mass market paperback release 28 Dec 10 The Hollows series is a guilty pleasure for me.

Also, [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s Duckies Do Series review of The Accidental Series by Michelle Willingham Historical romances released by Harlequin Historical Feb – Mar 2010 I’ve spent all of 2010 being perpetually behind in my reading. It’s gotten to the point where I literally have whole series waiting for me to read. Depressing, to be [...]
LauraJ’s review of Knock Me For A Loop by Heidi Betts Contemporary Romance published by St. Martin’s Press 2 Feb 1o I have a confession to make…I read this book when it first came out. But when I read it, I really just wanted to read it without reading it to critique it. I had [...]
Birdie’s review of Bound by Temptation by Lavinia Kent Historical Romance released by Avon Feb 10 Have you ever put down a book, unfinished, but still recommended it to a friend? Or read a new-to-you author, didn’t finish the book, and picked up another by that author? I have done neither of these things but with [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Island Fantasy by Kayla Perrin Contemporary romance released by Kimani Romance 01 Feb 10 Kayla Perrin has dipped her toes in a variety of writing ponds over the years – delivering everything from erotica to suspense. Island Fantasy, her first straight-up romance novel in a number of years will [...]

Limecello’s review of First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost Paranormal romance released by Avon 9 Feb 10 I’ve heard a lot about Jeanine Frost’s books, so when I had the chance to read First Drop of Crimson I couldn’t resist. It didn’t hurt that this book is the start of a series, so I [...]
Sandy M’s review of Red Wolf (Wolf Moons, Book 3) by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom Paranormal Romance published by Silhouette Nocturne 1 Feb 10 When I picked up this book I knew I’d like it. It’s werewolves after all. My favorite paranormal read. What I wasn’t expecting is the different take on wolf mates that Ms. Thomas-Sundstrom [...]
LynneC’s review of Pure Princess, Bartered Bride by Caitlin Crews Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Feb 10 Sigh. Another stupid title, but this one doesn’t have a hero in it, so is this a new direction? I’m not a fan of the “listing” title, and I don’t think I ever will be. Harlequin, [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Wedding Night With The Ranger by Lauri Robinson Historical western romance short story ebook released by Harlequin Historical Undone 01 Feb 2010 I’ve been known to whine about the fact that the historical western sub genre is flourishing in the Christian/Inspirational market, while in secular corners it’s still an [...]
Limecello’s review of Veiled Desire by Alisha Rai Contemporary romance released by Samhain Publishing 2 Feb 10 This is the first book I read by Alisha Rai, but it definitely won’t be the last. Veiled Desire also has so many of my favorite romance themes. The friends to lovers aspect. Then the “forbidden romance” – [...]
