Sandy M’s review of Lone Wolf (Shifters Unbound, Book 4.5) by Jennifer Ashley Paranormal Romance novella published by InterMix 16 Apr 13 I’ve been trying to figure out why I never warmed up to this book all that much.

Veena’s review of Ours to Love (A Wicked Lovers Novel) by Shayla Black Contemporary Erotic Romance published by Berkley 07 May 13 I’ve enjoyed reading Shayla Black’s spicy stories about wicked lovers and the women who tame them.

Veena’s review of The Honey Thief by Najaf Mazari and Robert Hillman Contemporary Fiction published by Viking Adult 18 Apr 13 Afghanistan is a landlocked country strategically located high in the Hindu Kush mountains of Asia.

Sandy M’s review of Back to You (Bad Boys of Red Hook, Book 1) by Robin Kaye Contemporary Romance reissued by Signet 31 Dec 12 I’m a bit perplexed at my reaction to this book. Every Robin Kaye story I’ve read so far I’ve had the best time with. But from the cover to the [...]
Willa’s review of No Turning Back (Hanover Brothers, Book 1) by HelenKay Dimon Contemporary Romance published by InterMix 19 Mar 13 I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book in a recent competition here and Sandy M begged, pleaded and wept asked me if I would like to do a review of [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of The Rake To Ruin Her (Ransleigh Rogues, Book 1) by Julia Justiss Historical Romance published by Harlequin Historical 19 Feb 13 By the time I discovered the romance genre, the death knell for the traditional Regency was already ringing (not loudly, but ringing all the same).

LynneC’s review of The Merciless Travis Wilde by Sandra Marton Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Mar 13 I loved the first book in this series, the second one was so-so, and this one is a bit of this and a bit of that. There is a lot to like, but in the end [...]

LynneC’s review of Behind Palace Doors (Hollywood Series, Book 3) by Jules Bennett Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 3 Mar 13 This is a friends-to-lovers story, and while not one of my favourite tropes, when it’s done well, it’s one of the most satisfactory romances there are. This one is done well.
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.
