Recently I’ve self-published a few backlist titles, and my, do they do well! These books are already professionally edited, so all I had to do was reformat and find a new book cover. So, reluctantly, I’ve had to climb down from my writer’s cave and get back into promotion and marketing.
Dinca’s Duckies Do Series review of The Kelley Legacy by Ferrarella, Cornelison, Barrett, Cassidy, Kennedy & Dees Romantic Suspense published by Harlequin Romantic Suspense The Kelley Legacy Series has a really good story arc with authors I have enjoyed in the past.

Dinca’s review of A Mother’s Homecoming by Tanya Michaels Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin American Romance 2 Aug 11 If you like a lot of “the way we were and could be again” in your story, this book might be for you. At first it read like an autobiography of a recovering alcoholic which is not [...]
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 The Cowboy’s Triplets (Callahan Cowboys, Book 1) by Tina Leonard Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin American Romance 3 May 11 This story is a disaster waiting to happen and I am looking forward to all of them.

LynneC’s review of To Tempt A Sheikh by Olivia Gates category novel released by Silhouette Desire Feb 11 I generally enjoy Olivia Gates’s books. A couple haven’t resonated with me but the ones she’s written for the Silhouette Desire line are treats. Lush treats. This book starts more like a romantic suspense. The hero, Harres, [...]
Dinca’s Review Private Parts by Tori Carrington Harlequin Blaze published by Harlequin 16 Nov 2010 The third time or fourth in this case is not always the charm. I for one am glad this is the end to the Private Scandals Series.
