A Throne for the Taking is Kate Walker’s 61st book for Harlequin/Mills and Boon. It’s the story of an ordinary, everyday, sexy-as-hell prince and the woman he’s known for most of his life, who turns out to be the One for him. Alex thinks he’s escaped the stifling world of prince-dom, but the woman he’s [...]
Kate Walker writes for Mills and Boon Modern/Harlequin Presents. Her stories have included adaptations of the classics, sexy Italian billionaires and now she’s added a European prince to her tally. She was kind enough to visit the TGTBTU office and answer the questions thrown at her by intrepid reporter Lynne Connolly. The author of a [...]
I’m working on fumes here. Sleep is a thing of the past.
One day at the RT hotel, the Sheraton in Kansas City, and it’s already looking like RT. Posters, stickers, huge signs are going up and the place is looking like home.
LynneC’s review of The Devil and Miss Jones by Kate Walker Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 3 Apr 12 Kate Walker excels at presenting the attraction between a man and a woman, but while I enjoyed this book, I wanted more. It reads more like extracts from a book than a proper story, and [...]
Lynn Viehl’s Nightborn is a resumption of her Lords of the Darkyn series, but if you’re new to the series, you can start with this one, if you want to. She keeps spoilers about the other books to an absolute minimum. There is no puppetry here, no events taking over the characters who do as [...]
I can’t say that 2011 was a classic reading year for me. So many train wrecks and meh books. But I read a lot, and even in a good year I’ll have something to celebrate. Sooo, here we go.
I have to start by wishing my US friends a happy Thanksgiving. I keep being asked if we celebrate it in the UK, and yes, in a way, we do – getting rid of a troublesome and difficult to administer colony with no obvious assets, other than somewhere to send the criminals and a nice [...]
LynneC’s review of One-Night Love Child by Anne McAllister Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Mar 08 I usually enjoy McAllister’s books enormously, but this one dragged a little for me. The conflicts weren’t strong enough and one part of the resolution seemed a little lame and the story didn’t have enough of a [...]
LynneC’s review of Money Man’s Fiancée Negotiation by Michelle Celmer Contemporary Romance published by Silhouette Desire 13 Apr 10 Last night, I saw a program on TV called “Women.” It looked at modern “radical feminists,” and their main concerns seemed to be with pornography and prostitutes. But instead of worrying about equal rights in the [...]
LynneC’s review of Di Cesare’s Pregnant Mistress by Chantelle Shaw Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Sep 08 Let’s get the title out of the way – it’s dreadful, and it’s also a spoiler, since the heroine doesn’t get preggers until later in the book. However, it’s hardly a surprise. This is a Harlequin Presents, [...]
LynneC’s review of Untamed Italian, Blackmailed Innocent by Jacqueline Baird Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Apr 10 The second of my standard HMB Modern/Presents read, and I liked this one better. Just. Zac is a big bruiser of a man, and he used his fighting skills to get the money for his first [...]
LynneC’s review of The Millionaire’s Blackmail Bargain by Heidi Rice Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 11 Mar 08 In the UK, this was called The Mile High Club. A much better title for this book, far more memorable and distinctive. Often, when I read an okay book, I decide not to review it, because, [...]
LynneC’s review of Shades of Midnight (Midnight Breeds Series, Book 7) by Lara Adrian Paranormal Romance published by Dell 29 Dec 09 After the disappointment of the last book about Andreas Reichen, in Ashes of Midnight, there is a return to form in this book. I like this series, which is more straightforward than others, [...]
