REVIEW: A Tempestuous Temptation by Cathy Williams

Saturday, March 2, 2013 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of A Tempestuous Temptation by Cathy Williams Contemporary Romance published by Mills and Boon Modern 1 Nov 12 While this book doesn’t break any new ground, it presents two likeable characters and their journey into love, which is what the Presents line is, or should be, all about. What makes it enjoyable isn’t [...]

REVIEW: A Devil in Disguise by Caitlin Crews

Sunday, November 25, 2012 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of A Devil in Disguise by Caitlin Crews Contemporary Romance published by Mills and Boon Modern 1 Oct 12 Caitlin Crews does it again. Takes an old trope, breathes new life into it, and makes you root for the people involved, even though they’re far from perfect or even completely likable. What they [...]

REVIEW: Defying the Prince by Sarah Morgan

Saturday, September 1, 2012 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of Defying the Prince by Sarah Morgan Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 21 Aug 12 This is a book in the Santini series, which I’ve read with mixed success, but this one is definitely a goodie. Morgan delineated a character you shouldn’t like, you shouldn’t root for, but I ended up hoping [...]

LynneC’s review of Enemies at the Altar (The Outrageous Sisters, Book 2) by Melanie Milburne Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 21 Aug 12 I’d forgotten I’d read the first book in this series until a few reminders dropped in the text reminded me.

REVIEW: Behind the Castello Doors by Chantelle Shaw

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of Behind the Castello Doors by Chantelle Shaw Contemporary Romance published by Mills and Boon 1 May 12 Chantelle Shaw makes a decent attempt at a modern gothic in this story. Only a few technical issues and the heroine, which is more my taste than a fault, stop this from getting top marks.

REVIEW: Say It With Diamonds by Lucy King

Monday, January 2, 2012 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of Say It With Diamonds by Lucy King Contemporary Romance published by Mills and Boon Modern Romance 1 Jan 12 Lucy King has considerable talent as a writer, and her first book for Harlequin was fabulous. However, the subsequent ones are evidence that she hasn’t yet settled in properly. It is fascinating to [...]

REVIEW: Doukakis’s Apprentice by Sarah Morgan

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 13:00 1 Comment

LynneC’s review of Doukakis’s Apprentice by Sarah Morgan Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 20 Sept 11 Sarah Morgan writes books about poor but feisty heroines and rich but unjerky heroes. Although she uses the usual Harlequin/Mills and Boon tropes, she uses them intelligently, to illuminate the characters, rather than by rote, to get through [...]

LynneC’s review of Under the Brazilian Sun by Catherine George Contemporary romance published by Mills and Boon Modern Romance 1 Aug 11 Catherine George has been writing for Mills and Boon for a long time.

REVIEW: The Highest Price to Pay by Maisey Yates

Sunday, September 11, 2011 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of The Highest Price To Pay by Maisey Yates Contemporary Romance published by Mills and Boon Modern 1 Aug 11 This is a terrific book. Instead of dealing with the non-issue of an African-French man and a Caucasian American woman, it deals with what lies beneath the skin. I love that a book [...]

REVIEW: From Dirt to Diamonds by Julia James

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 1:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of From Dirt to Diamonds by Julia James Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 23 Aug 11 When you want the pure, true crack that is Mills and Boon Modern romance, you turn to Julia James. She gives you all the wild madness, the extremes of the Cinderella trope that is the basis [...]

LynneC’s review of  A Dark Sicilian Secret by Jane Porter and Bound to the Greek by Kate Hewitt Contemporary Romances published by Mills and Boon Modern 1 May 22 and 1 Jan 11 The next two books I read have similar themes, but while one works for me, the other doesn’t.

Sunday, January 23, 2011 1:00 4 Comments

Lynne Connolly’s review of  Unworldly Secretary, Untamed Greek by Kim Lawrence Contemporary romance published by Mills and Boon Modern Romance 3 Sep 10 This story started badly for me when the heroine took off her glasses and didn’t seem to need them anymore. As a glasses-wearer, I hate that. I’m helpless without mine, and although [...]

Lynne Connolly’s review of One Night, Nine-Month Scandal by Sarah Morgan Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Sep 10 This is a great example of what a good Presents/Modern should be: exotic location, sexy hero, likeable heroine, and a story about emotions with a nice dash of humor in the mix.

REVIEW: Rafael’s Suitable Bride by Cathy Williams

Saturday, June 12, 2010 1:00 No Comments

Lynne Connolly’s review of Rafael’s Suitable Bride by Cathy Williams Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents/Mills and Boon Modern 1 Mar 09 I usually enjoy Cathy Williams’ books, but in this one I found too many dissonances to fully enter into it. It’s a good story that’s been shoehorned into the Presents/Modern line.
