Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of One Night as a Courtesan by Ann Lethbridge Historical Romance short story ebook published by Harlequin Historical Undone 01 Oct 10 I read a full-length “Regency” historical romance recently that had absolutely no sense of place. It could have easily taken place on a Texas cattle ranch in 1968 [...]
Liviania’s Duckies Do Series review of The Love by Numbers Trilogy by Sarah MacLean Historical Romance published by Avon Mar 10-Apr 11 In 2009, Sarah MacLean’s debut The Season got several good reviews on young adult book blogs. I put it out of my mind since it’s a hardcover, but then her adult romances started [...]
Dinca’s review of Seduce and Rescue by Jillian Burns Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 1 Oct 10 This book is HOT! I got a kick out of the “opposite attract” components in the story. He is a stogy old sick in the mud running through life consisting of one daily routine after another. She’s [...]
Sandy M’s review of Highland Hellcat (Highlander Series, Book 1) by Mary Wine Historical Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 1 Oct 10 I’ve been wonderfully surprised with these Highlander books by Mary Wine. These are the first of her books I’ve read, and now I’d like to pick up others from her backlist. She has [...]
Dinca’s review of Honky Tonk Christmas (Honky Tonk Series, Book 4) by Carolyn Brown Contemporary Western Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 1 Oct 10 Honky Tonk Christmas by Carolyn Brown is part of the Honky Tonk Series, a Contemporary Western romance. I have not had the opportunity to read I Love This Bar, Hell Yeah or My [...]
Ash’s review of Something Wicked (Living in Eden, Book 2) by Michelle Rowen Paranormal Romance published by Berkley Sensation 05 Oct 10 I always worry that I won’t like the other books in a series as much as I like the first. When I started reading Something Wicked, I couldn’t get into it like I [...]
Dinca’s review of The Good Provider by Debra Salonen Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin SuperRomance 12 Oct 10 The Good Provider has it all. A stronger-than-she-realizes heroine, a sensitive, caring hero, a believable asinine jerk, and an obnoxious soon-to-be ex-mother-in law, all which add up to a good read. This story has most everything in [...]
LynneC’s review of Sins of the Flesh (Sins Series, Book 3) by Eve Silver Paranormal Romance published by HQN 1 Oct 10 I’ve never read Eve Silver’s books before, but I plunged into this one, despite it being part of a series. I had no trouble at all.
Gwen’s review of Ecstasy in Darkness (Alien Huntress, Book 5) by Gena Showalter Sci-fi Romance released by Pocket Star 26 Oct 10 For the first chapter or two (or three) of this book, I was convinced I would hate the hero. The heroine I loved – great dynamic between her and her BFF, and I [...]
Dinca’s review of A Cold Creek Baby by RaeAnne Thayne Contemporary Romance published by Silhouette Special Edition 1 Oct 10 I can feel the tenderness and heartache in this story as if it is real. The anguish and compassion and love vibrate off the pages. RaeAnne Thayne gives us a story of love and honor, and no matter [...]
Sandy M’s review of A Darcy Christmas by Amanda Grange, Sharon Lathan and Carolyn Eberhart Historical Romance published by Sourcebooks Landmark 1 Oct 10 I’ve probably said this before, but since it’s my reasoning and it usually bears out my feelings, I’ll say it again. I don’t read many anthologies, mostly because it takes an [...]
Dinca’s review of The Ex Factor by Nancy Warren Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Blaze 1 Oct 10 I have never read any works by Nancy Warren and I find reading The Ex Factor strange. However, knowing the book will end in happily ever after, I’m surprised to find myself reading about a divorced couple, [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Western Winter Wedding Bells by Cheryl St. John, Jenna Kernan & Charlene Sands Historical western romance anthology published by Harlequin Historical 01 Oct 10 I love Harlequin Historical for their willingness to publish a variety of settings, but I gotta be honest – I’m mostly in it for the [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Silent Night Stakeout by Kerry Connor Romantic suspense released by Harlequin Intrigue 12 Oct 2010 I cut my reading teeth on mystery novels, so it’s not surprising that when romantic suspense novels don’t work for me, it’s usually because I felt the author dropped the ball in the suspense [...]
Ash’s review of Haunted by Your Touch by Jeaniene Frost, Sharie Kohler & Shayla Black Paranormal Romance published by Pocket 26 Oct 10 I’ve been really looking forward to this anthology. It has two authors I really like, Jeaniene Frost and Shayla Black, and another I have wanted to try.
