LynneC’s review of Defiant in the Desert by Sharon Kendrick Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Dec 13 Sharon Kendrick’s Defiant in the Desert is definitely a book of two halves, as our football pundits over here have it. I nearly stopped reading after the first few chapters, and the dislike engendered for the [...]
LynneC’s review of Expecting a Bolton Baby (Bolton Brothers, Book 3) by Sarah M. Anderson Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 1 Nov 13 At last, a book I enjoyed thoroughly and lost time in. I thought this year was a plethora of C reads. Had I lost my enthusiasm for Presents and Desire books? Perhaps [...]
LynneC’s review of Do or Die (Reluctant Heroes, Book 1) by Suzanne Brockmann Romantic Suspense published by Ballantine Books 4 Feb 14 Where do I start? Ah, with backstory. I really love Suzanne Brockmann’s books. I loved the Team Ten series she did for Harlequin and the Troubleshooters series. I read every one, and eagerly [...]

LynneC’s review of The Holiday Survival Guide by Jane O’Reilly Contemporary Romance novella ebook published by Harlequin Escape 1 Jan 14 This novella is about a man running from his problems and a woman who assuages her own guilt by wrecking other people’s marriages. It does tackle controversial issues like abortion but in a half-hearted [...]
LynneC’s review of Straddling the Line by Sarah M. Anderson Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 1 May 13 A Christmas present to me, since I read this over the Christmas season. I really enjoyed this one. It is different in that the motivations are understandable and seem intrinsic to the story, something that’s very [...]
LynneC’s review of Yuletide Baby Surprise by Catherine Mann Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 1 Oct 13 This book is a Christmas read that isn’t fill of snow and Santas. Instead, it is set in a hot place and most of the action takes place in a hotel.
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 [...]
