Holly’s review of Pride and Pleasure by Sylvia Day Historical Romance published by Brava 25 Jan 11 Heiress Eliza Martin has decided this will be her last season. She has no desire to marry and her uncle has agreed she doesn’t need to if she’s totally set against it. Unfortunately, it seems like someone is [...]
Holly‘s review of If He’s Wild (Wherlocke 3) by Hannah Howell Historical Paranormal Romance released by Zebra 25 May 2010 It’s no secret that I’m a total Hannah Howell fangirl. I own every book she’s ever written – and multiple copies of my favorites. I stopped reading the Murray series awhile back because I felt [...]
Holly‘s review of If He’s Sinful by Hannah Howell Historical Paranormal Romance released by Zebra 01 Dec 2009 I’m really glad to see Howell moving away from her Murray series and into new territory. Though I am concerned that she’s planning to exchange one large, eccentric family for another.
Holly‘s review of The Daddy Audition by Cindi Myers a(caution – sound on the site) Contemporary romance released by Harlequin American Romance 14 Jul 09 I enjoyed the basic premise of this story: heroine leaves to pursue her dreams and leaves high school sweetheart behind. Now she’s back and so is their attraction.
Holly’s review of Taming the Texas Tycoon by Katherine Garbera (author’s site very out of date) Contemporary Romance released by Silhouette Desire 14 Jul 09 I liked this story on a superficial level. If I start examining the motives or actions of the main characters I have major issues. As a fluff story – something [...]
Holly‘s review of Texas Wedding by Kathleen O’Brien Contemporary Romance released by Harlequin SuperRomance 14 Jul 09 I’m still formulating my thoughts about this one. I generally enjoy the reunited lovers plot line, but this couple was bitter and angry.
Holly‘s review of Burn by Linda Howard Romantic Suspense released by Ballantine 7 July 09 I’ve been disappointed in most of Linda Howard’s more recent releases, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It reminded me quite a bit of All the Queen’s Men. Kind of light on the romance and heavy on the [...]
Holly‘s review of Inherited: One Child by Day Leclaire Contemporary romance released by Silhouette Desire 14 Jul 09 I’m always looking for new authors to try when I browse eHarlequin.com and the blurb for this one caught my eye. I’m glad I picked it up, because it turned out to be a good read. This [...]
Holly‘s review of A Fortune Wedding by Kristin Hardy Contemporary romance released by Silhouette Special Edition 1 June 2009 I really tried to like this book. Two things marred my enjoyment: 1) the fact that I hadn’t read any of the previous books and 2) the heroine. There were many things that were referenced in [...]
Holly‘s review of Make Me Yours by Betina Krahn Historical romance released by Harlequin Blaze 1 July 2009 Before I go into my review, I have to tell you that it annoys the crap out of me that the Blaze line now includes historical and paranormal novels. In the past Blaze has always been sexy, [...]
Holly‘s review of Magnate’s Make-Believe Mistress by Bronwyn Jameson Contemporary Romance released by Silhouette Desire 14 July 2009 I don’t believe I’ve read many (if any) book by Bronwyn Jameson before. The name sounds familiar, but I’m not sure if that’s because I’ve heard it from others (most likely Wendy) or from my own experience. [...]
Holly‘s review of The Doctor’s Surprise Family by Mary J. Forbes Contemporary romance released by Silhouette 1 May 09 I generally like the ‘reunited lovers’ plot line. Especially if the lovers in question were high school sweethearts. This is the third book in Forbes’ Home to Firewood Island series. I read the first two books [...]
Holly‘s review of The Bravo Bachelor by Christine Rimmer Contemporary Romance released by Silhouette Special Edition 1 Apr 09 I really love these “pregnant widow” stories. I don’t know why, exactly, since they often leave me feeling frustrated and annoyed (depending on the heroine’s feelings for her dead husband), but there you have it. Luckily [...]
Holly‘s review of A Not-So-Perfect Past by Beth Andrews Contemporary Romance released by Harlequin SuperRomance 14 Apr 09 Beth Andrews is a fairly new Harlequin author, this being her second release with them. I liked the blurb so figured I’d give it a try. I think I may have suffered a bit for not reading [...]
Holly‘s review of She’s Got It Bad by Sarah Mayberry Contemporary Romance released by Harlequin Blaze 1 Apr 09 I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about Sarah Mayberry, so I decided to check her out. I was really impressed with how unconventional the heroine is, even for a contemporary romance.
