Liviania’s review of Love and Other Scandals (Scandals, Book 1) by Caroline Linden Regency romance published by Avon 30 Jul 13 I have a massive soft spot for Caroline Linden since she is one of the first romance authors I ever read.  Luckily, her books rarely require me to lean on that soft spot.  Her [...]

Liviania’s review of Second Star to the Right by A. F. Henley Contemporary M/M romance published by Less Than Three Press 19 Feb 2014 I have this thing about Peter Pan.  I can’t even say it started respectably, with J.M. Barrie.  Nope, I started with the Disney movie.  I wouldn’t give up the freedoms of [...]

Liviania’s review of Full-Blood Half-Breed by Cleve Lamison Fantasy published by Hydra 11 Mar 14 I’ve been watching the Penguin Random House eBook imprints tentatively since the initial furor over the contract terms.  (Which did, apparently, get resolved quickly.)  But I hadn’t dipped my toes in until the blurb of Full-Blood Half-Breed made me want [...]

Liviania’s review of Down and Out in Beverly Heels by Kathryn Leigh Scott Contemporary romance published by Montlake Romance 26 Mar 2013 I picked up Down and Out in Beverly Heels because it looked like a fun romance with a bit of madcap mystery a la Janet Evanovich.  While I enjoyed the novel, it’s nothing [...]

REVIEW: Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas

Saturday, August 11, 2012 1:00 1 Comment

Liviania’s review of Rainshadow Road (Friday Harbor, Book 2) by Lisa Kleypas Contemporary romance published by St. Martin’s Griffin 28 Feb 12 I resisted reading Lisa Kleypas’s new series, despite loving her historicals and Texas-set contemporaries.  “Friday Harbor” sounded twee and the cover and title of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor seemed overly sentimental.   But [...]

REVIEW: A Scandalous Scot by Karen Ranney

Liviania’s review of A Scandalous Scot by Karen Ranney Historical romance published by Avon 26 June 12 I have a weakness for books with plaid on the cover and the words Scot, Scotsman, or Scottish in the title.  I know I am not the only one, as there are an abundance of these books. I [...]

GUEST BLOG: Child Characters by Elizabeth Hoyt

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 10:00 9 Comments

Hi everyone, and a special ‘Thank You’ to Liviania for having me (Elizabeth Hoyt) on The Good, The Bad and The Unread! Child characters can be a real pain to write in romance. They can come off as too old, too young, or just plain irritating. A lot of readers say they don’t like children [...]

Liviania’s review of Thief of Shadows (Maiden Lane, Book 4) by Elizabeth Hoyt Historical Romance published by Grand Central Publishing 26 Jun 12 I love the Prince Trilogy and am, thus, willing to read anything Elizabeth Hoyt writes.  Shamefully, I’ve fallen behind on the Maiden Lane series.  And by “fallen behind” I mean this is [...]

Liviania’s review of Along Came a Duke (Rhymes With Love, Book 1) by Elizabeth Boyle Historical Romance published by Avon 29 May 12 I’m familiar with the name Elizabeth Boyle, but this is the first one of her novels that I’ve read.  I was drawn to it by the Cinderella element.  Heroine Tabitha Timmons begins [...]
