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.

Liviania’s review of Frostbound (The Dark Forgotten, Book 4) by Sharon Ashwood Paranormal Romance published by Signet 7 Jun 11 Sharon Ashwood knows how to write a fun paranormal romance. Much of Frostbound would be cause for an angst fest in other hands. But Ashwood’s characters aren’t the kind to revel in their own misery.
LynneC’s review of Just Let Go by Kathleen O’Reilly Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 21 Jun 11 While this Blaze does have sizzle and steam, the interactions outside the bedroom are as good as the ones inside it. With vivid characters and a memorable setting, this book is hard to overlook.
Liviania’s review of Fun & Games (Charlie Hardie Trilogy, Book 1) by Duane Swierczynski Pulp Thriller published by Mulholland 20 Jun 11 Sybs passed Fun & Games on to me because she knows that I sometimes read comics. I’m not a big Marvel girl, but I accepted because I had heard of Duane Swierczynski. I [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of How to Lasso a Cowboy (Gold Buckle Cowboys #2) by Christine Wenger Contemporary romance published by Harlequin Special Edition 21 Jun 11 File this one under When Tropes You Love Turn Out Not So Great.

LynneC’s review of Deeper than Midnight (Midnight Breeds, Book 9) by Lara Adrian Paranormal Romance published by Dell 28 June 10 I’ve read this Adrian series from the beginning.

Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Her Wyoming Man by Cheryl St. John Historical Western Romance published by Harlequin Historical 21 Jun 11 A new Cheryl St. John Harlequin Historical tends to be a cause for celebration for me.

LynneC’s review of Meddling with a Millionaire by Cat Schield Contemporary Romance Ebook published by Harlequin Desire 1 Jun 11 I love discovering new authors to follow and enjoy, so Schield’s debut book with Harlequin Desire is a perfect candidate. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out too well and I don’t think I’ll be hunting down [...]
Ash’s review of Nightfall (Dark Age Dawning, Book 1) by Ellen Connor Paranormal Romance published by Berkley 07 Jun 11 It’s a first for me, a book where I can completely dislike the romance but love everything else. If you took out Jenna and Mason as a couple, I am not sure I would have [...]
LynneC’s review of Inside (Bulletproof Series, Book 1) by Brenda Novak Romantic Suspense published by Mira 28 Jun 11 I had this book to keep me company on a long, loooong airplane journey and it ate up a nice bunch of hours. After a shaky start I found the story totally absorbing, the characters believable [...]
Sandy M’s review of Waking Up with the Duke (London’s Greatest Lovers, Book 3) by Lorraine Heath Historical Romance published by Avon 28 Jun 11 I absolutely love Lorraine Heath’s books.
