LynneC’s review of Million Dollar Christmas Proposal by Lucy Monroe Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Nov 13 One of my favorite guilty pleasures is the boss/secretary romance. Or rather, the boss/employee romance, since Presents has come to terms with there not being any secretaries anymore. Although there are still PAs. In this book [...]
LynneC’s review of Proof of Their Sin by Dani Collins Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Jul 13 The title of the book put me off a bit. It sounded so old fashioned. But having read it, I do see the point. Great writing style, a scrappy plot, and two characters who deserve each [...]
LynneC’s review of One Night Heir by Lucy Monroe Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 18 Jun 13 This is a duty versus love story, and while some parts are a bit unbalanced, it is an enjoyable read.
LynneC’s review of A Hunger For The Forbidden by Maisey Yates Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 19 Nov 13 This is the story of the bride who ran out on her wedding day at the very start of the Corretti series, and it’s a doozy.
LynneC’s review of Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan Contemporary Romance published by HQN 29 Oct 13 This is Sarah Morgan’s first book for HQN – which means a longer length and more Morgan goodness! It’s a very, very Christmassy book. It’s set in a snow resort, and there are people who cook [...]
LynneC’s review of Waking Up To You & Overexposed by Leslie Kelly Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 23 Apr 2013 This is a tricky review to write, because it’s been a few weeks since I read the book, and already I’m finding it hard to remember the characters and plot. However, it does closely [...]
LynneC’s review of His Ring Is Not Enough by Maisey Yates Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 20 Aug 13 Maisey Yates specializes in angsty heroes and heroines. In this one it’s the hero who is particularly conflicted, but while I enjoy reading angst, there are a few things about this book that didn’t really [...]
LynneC’s review of The Divorce Party by Jennifer Hayward Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents Sep 13 I wanted so much to like this book, but it ended up being a meh forgettable story with a lack of attention to detail that was at times irritating. The central couple are out of the Modern/Presents stock [...]
LynneC’s review of Wrong Man, Right Kiss by Red Garnier Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 6 Aug 13 The premise of this story is an interesting one, verging on the “oh please” unbelievable, but I went along with it for the read. However, because of certain elements in the story, it isn’t a book [...]
LynneC’s review of Detained by Ainslie Paton Contemporary Romance published by Escape 1 Sept 13 Detained is an odd kind of book. It’s very well written in terms of style, and yet the plot lurches from incident to incident, exhausting this reader, changing direction from closed-room erotic to straight romance to prison drama to romantic suspense. [...]
LynneC’s review of To the Limit by Jo Leigh Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 3 Jul 13 I’ve never found Jo Leigh’s books particularly sexy, more, say, than a Modern or a Desire, so I’m not sure why she’s writing for Blaze, except it’s fast becoming the line where the ex-military and currently serving [...]
LynneC’s review of A Baby Between Friends (The Good, the Bad and the Texan, Book 2) by Kathie Denosky Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 3 Jul 13 This is part of Kathie Denosky’s series about six men from troubled backgrounds who were adopted by a philanthropist and regard each other as brothers. Each has [...]
LynneC’s review of All Bets Are On by Charlotte Phillips Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Kiss 1 Aug 13 This book begins when Alice, the uptight boss of a group in an ad agency, discovers a sheet of paper that is part of a bet. The people in the office are taking odds on who [...]
LynneC’s review of Playing For Keeps by Catherine Mann Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 2 Apr 13 Let’s get the plot out of the way first. This is totally preposterous on a number of levels. First, the hero is described as a soft rock star. I didn’t think people used that term anymore, but [...]
LynneC’s review ofA Royal Without Rulesby Caitlin Crews Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 3 Jul 13 The book contains Crews’ trademark angst and does it very effectively. However, the reader is kept wondering a little too long about the nature of the hero, and the heroine is somewhat irritating.
