Stevie’s Duckies Do Series review of The Weekday Brides Series by Catherine Bybee Contemporary Romance published by Montlake Romance I really shouldn’t have enjoyed this series as much as I did. The first book in particular made some glaringly wrong assumptions about the British aristocracy and inheritance laws, most of which could have been quickly [...]
Stevie‘s review of Undressed (The Manhattanites, Book 1) by Avery Aster Contemporary erotic romance published by Ellora’s Cave 15 Feb 13 I was offered this book after agreeing to review the second in the series, which has an intriguing blurb. Not being keen on starting series in the middle, I decided to read this one first, even [...]
LynneC’s review of The Notorious Gabriel Diaz by Cathy Williams Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Feb 13/Mills & Boon 5 Jul 13 This story started badly for me, with a jerk hero and a wimp heroine. However, things got more interesting when Gabriel grows a conscience. A shame Lucy never grew a backbone.
Sandy M’s review of Ride the Fire (Blakewell/Kenleigh Trilogy, Book 3) by Pamela Clare Historical Romance reissued by Berkley 5 Feb 13 I’ve been wanting to read this books for forever. Everyone I talk to who’s read it says it’s a wonderful story. I never doubted that. I mean, it’s Pamela Clare, and her historical [...]
Sandy M’s review of Perfect Timing (Harringon/Kendrick/Coulter Series, Book 11) by Catherine Anderson Contemporary Time Travel Romance published by Signet 26 Feb 13 I’ve read only the first two books in this series, and that was years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed them and have lamented the fact that I didn’t push on and catch up [...]
LynneC’s review of A Scandal, A Secret, A Baby by Sharon Kendrick Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Feb 13 I let myself get drawn back in, didn’t I? I should have known better. The first book in the series didn’t work for me, so why should the second?
Sandy M’s review of Immortal Ever After (Argeneau and Rogue Hunters, Book 18) by Lynsay Sands Paranormal Romance published by Avon 26 Feb 13 Nothing like reading your first book in a series at No. 18. Not that I haven’t wanted to read this series. I mean, it’s Lynsay Sands. I’ve wanted to read her [...]
Veena’s review of Calculated in Death (In Death Series, Book 36) by J.D. Robb Romantic Suspense/Paranormal Romance published by Putnam Adult 26 Feb 13 I have been a diehard fan of this series and in some ways I feel that this one is a back-to-basics type of book with good old- fashioned police work necessary [...]
LynneC’s review of Edge of Dawn (Midnight Breed, Book 12) by Lara Adrian Paranormal Romance published by Delacorte Press 26 Feb 13 By moving the story of the Breeds on twenty years, Adrian has rebooted her series. The original heroes and heroines are all there—all of them—but now their children have stories to tell. This [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of A Real Cowboy by Sarah M. Anderson Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 5 Feb 13 Yes, it’s true – southern California really is a different place. I’ve lived in the area for what is coming up on a decade and to this day I can’t watch the local TV news because I start [...]
LynneC’s review of Captive in the Spotlight by Annie West Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Feb 13 Sometimes Annie West takes the waif motif too far and her heroines are complete pushovers who you just know will end up barefoot and pregnant by the end of the story. And happy to be so. [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve read a sexy tycoon hero, and Drake Lockhart fills that bill perfectly. He’s successful, honest, loves his family, and knows his own heart when he meets the love of his life. He may have a few things trip him up here and there, just like all of us when [...]
Coming up with a few words for a blog has always been hard for me, as evidenced by my erratic posts on my own blog. I think of a topic to write about, but then I think, “Oh, no one will be interested in this.” And I abandon it. Or I think, “Uh-oh, if I [...]
Sandy M’s review of The Tycoon (Sons of Texas, Book 1) by Anna Jeffrey Contemporary Western Romance published by CreateSpace 16 Feb 13 It’s always the little things in life that end up knocking us for a loop. In this case, for Shannon Piper, a real estate agent who has worked her tail off to [...]
