Thursday, April 10, 2014 0:00 4 Comments

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.

Stevie‘s review of Reaper’s Legacy (Reapers MC, Book 2) by Joanna Wylde Contemporary Romance published by Berkley 28 Jan 14 Biker culture is popular in fiction and televised entertainment, and I’m far from immune to its appeal.

Stevie‘s review of Twisted by Laura K. Curtis Contemporary Romantic Suspense published by Intermix 19 Nov 13 I love mystery stories with or without a central romance, and even those with no romantic elements, although generally I find I prefer cosies, thrillers and police procedurals to romantic suspense – not that I’m going to rely [...]

LynneC’s review of Defiant in the Desert by Sharon Kendrick Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Dec 13 Sharon Kendrick’s Defiant in the Desert is definitely a book of two halves, as our football pundits over here have it. I nearly stopped reading after the first few chapters, and the dislike engendered for the [...]

Stevie‘s review of Kisses, She Wrote (The Prince Catchers Book 1.5) by Katharine Ashe Historical Romance novella published by Avon Impulse 03 Dec 13 This is one of those books that feels very much as if two separate, competing stories have been shoehorned together to provide sufficient word count for the desired book length. The [...]
