Dinca’s review of Dade (The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch, Book 2) by Delores Fossen Romance published by Harlequin Intrigue 29 Nov 2011 I love this adrenaline-pumped novel just as much as the first one in the series of The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch. The romance is as action packed as the flying bullets. Ms. Fossen [...]
LynneC’s review of A Man of His Word (Lawyers in Love, Book 1) by Sarah M. Anderson Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 29 Nov 11 I started to read A Man of Privilege and saw that there is a previous book, so I backtracked. At last, a debut that is assured, interesting, and eminently [...]
Dinca’s Duckies Do Series review of The Kelley Legacy by Ferrarella, Cornelison, Barrett, Cassidy, Kennedy & Dees Romantic Suspense published by Harlequin Romantic Suspense The Kelley Legacy Series has a really good story arc with authors I have enjoyed in the past. But the series has the feel of having been rushed to print and [...]
LynneC’s review of The Price of Honor by Emilie Rose Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 1 Nov 11 This is a difficult book to like, because of the hero and what he does. But Emilie Rose’s smooth writing style and her skill in depicting characters, together with the heroine, make this a worthwhile read.
LynneC’s review of The Real Rio D’Aquila (The Orsini Brothers, Book 6) by Sandra Marton Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 15 Nov 11 This is the last book about the children of a Mafia don, who turn their backs on him and his ways and find their own way in life and to love. [...]
Sandy M’s review of Five Ways ‘Til Sunday (Delta Heat, Book 1) by Delilah Devlin Contemporary Erotic Romance short story ebook published by Samhain 22 Nov 11 I haven’t had such a dilemma like this with a book in quite a while. I like the characters. I like the story. Then I didn’t care for [...]
Sandy M’s review of Fatal Heat by Lisa Marie Rice Erotic Romantic Suspense novella published by Avon Impulse 8 Nov 11 I always love heroes written by Lisa Marie Rice. Give me a hero like Max Wright, alpha, determined, strong, but still tender and gentle, and I’m a very happy reader. It then follows she’ll [...]
LynneC’s review of Reckless Night (Dangerous Trilogy, Book 3.5) by Lisa Marie Rice Contemporary Romance ebook novella published by Avon 29 Nov 11 This story is an epilogue to a book by Rice, something I didn’t realize when I started to read it. It reads well as a standalone, and Rice is a competent storyteller, [...]
LynneC’s review of Nothing Short of Perfect by Day Leclaire Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Desire 1 Nov 11 Day LeClaire is a great example of someone who has been writing for the Desire line for a very long time but manages to keep her characters and situations fresh and interesting. More than interesting. I [...]
LynneC’s review of Beyond The Darkness (Offspring Series, Book 5) by Jaime Rush Paranormal Romance published by Avon 29 Nov 11 Petra is a girly-girl. She likes the Wizard of Oz, American Idol, and she’s training to be a beautician (called an esthetician here. Is there a difference? Pardon my ignorance!) In a previous entry [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of One Wicked Christmas by Amanda McCabe Historical Romance short story ebook published by Harlequin Historical Undone 01 Nov 11 I always pick up books by Amanda McCabe because she never gives readers the same thing twice. She’s done everything from the 15th century to the 1920s. Any author who [...]
LynneC’s review of On The First Night Of Christmas by Heidi Rice Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 29 Nov 11 I don’t do many seasonal reads, just a few, and this offering looked like a fun one. It didn’t disappoint. In an England being blown into the sea by gale force winds, this was [...]
LynneC’s review of His Christmas Acquisition by Cathy Williams Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 29 Nov 11 I have enjoyed Cathy Williams’ books in the past, but, sadly, this one isn’t one of them. Tired situations, tired characters no thicker than a sheet of paper, and a tired style make this a disappointing read.
Laura C’s review of Space in His Heart by Roxanne St. Claire Contemporary Romance published by Roxanne St. Claire 28 Nov 11 Deke Stockard has plenty to worry about: as well as an astronaut, he’s a safety engineer on shuttles and reports on the Endeavor shuttle, the next to go up, keep disappearing. He’s sure [...]
LynneC’s review of A Moment On The Lips by Kate Hardy Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 1 Nov 11 Kate Hardy is a great writer. Her style is easy to read but deceptively clever, so you don’t notice it until you think, “Hey, that’s good.” She brings her characters to life, and they’re not [...]
