Lawson’s review of Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas Historical romance released by Bantam 19 May 09 If you haven’t read Thomas’ first two books, you need to go and get them and read them ASAP.

Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of The Man Most Likely by Cindi Myers Contemporary Romance released by Harlequin American 12 May 2009 I’m certainly not alone in my desire to see more full-figured romance heroines.
