Dinca’s review of Under a Prairie Moon by Krista Kedrick Contemporary Romance published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform 24 Jul 11 Not a lot of dialogue in this storyline. The main characters spend a lot of time in fear of what everyone else might think, all in very little time getting their act together. Since [...]
Ash’s review of Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy Trilogy, Book 1) by Kiersten White Young Adult Paranormal published by HarperTeen 26 Jul 11 Paranormlcy is what I would consider a ‘palate cleanser’. A good book to read after a heavy hitter.

LynneC’s review of The Matchmaker Bride by Kate Hewitt Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Jul 11 I was five chapters into The Matchmaker Bride before I realised why the heroine annoys me so much. She is Emma. Yes, that Emma, Emma Woodhouse, who Jane Austen thought nobody would like but herself. Emma does, [...]
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. But the series has the feel of having been rushed to print and [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of The Queen’s Consort by Leia Rice Erotica short story ebook published by Spice Briefs 01 Jul 11 Pour a glass of wine into me and I’ll wax poetic about how erotica isn’t “just about sex.” That in “good erotica,” written predominantly for a female readership, the sex is a [...]
Ash’s review of Bloodlust (Nightshade Series, Book 2) by Michelle Rowen Urban fantasy published by Berkley Sensation 05 Jul 11 I really enjoy this series and I am happy to say that Michelle Rowen has left me feeling happy and satisfied with how it ends.

Dinca’s review of The Gunfighter and the Heiress by Carol Finch Historical Romance published by Harlequin Historical 19 Jul 11 A delightful, fast-paced trip through the bad lands of Texas, you will not find a dull moment in this book. The characters are strong and independent and butt heads as well as lips along their wild [...]
LynneC’s review of Caught in the Billionaire’s Embrace by Elizabeth Bevarly Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 5 Jul 11 I read Harlequin Desires and Presents because they’re short, snappy reads and they deliver lots of romance. However, every now and again you come across a real gem, and I’m happy to say this book [...]

Jones Historical erotica digital short story published by Spice Briefs 01 Jul 11 I’m a sucker for historicals with an erotic edge, so whenever I see one pop up in the Spice Briefs line, I always take a closer look. Georgia [...]
Sandy M’s review of In the Heat of the Bite by Lydia Dare Historical Paranormal Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 1 Jul 11 I’ve been looking forward to this offshoot of Lydia Dare’s Westfield Brothers series. I didn’t really know what to expect, just that vampyres are being introduced into the mix. Unfortunately, I missed [...]
Sandy M’s review of Just One Season in London by Leigh Michaels Historical Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 1 Jul 11 This is only my second book by Leigh Michaels, and one of the elements I like in her stories is the way she integrates three romances into one book. She did that quite successfully [...]
Janet Webb‘s review of The Devilish Montague (Rebellious Sons, Book 2) by Patricia Rice Historical Romance published by Signet 5 Jul 11 One of my favourite tropes is the marriage of convenience. Patricia Rice’s new historical novel, The Devilish Montague, part of the Rebellious Sons series, is right up my alley! I inhaled the book [...]
Sandy M’s review of Fatal Consequences (Fatal Series, Book 3) by Marie Force Romantic Suspense ebook published by Carina Press 18 Jul 11 With just one book, Everyone Loves a Hero, Marie Force has become a favorite of mine. I have other books of hers in the TBR mountain just because I like the title [...]
Gen’s Review of Heartbreak Creek (Runaway Brides, Book 1) by Kaki Warner Historical Western Romance published by Berkley Trade 5 Jul 11 I absolutely love Kaki Warner’s Heartbreak Creek, the first book in her Runaway Brides series. But as all romance readers know, you’re supposed to show, not tell. So let me show you how [...]
