My Dearest Enemy

Connie Brockway’s My Dearest Enemy combines two of my favourite things - an enemies-to-lovers romance and a story in which letters play an important part (I do love an epistolary novel!).  It’s a gloriously romantic, character-driven story set at the end of the 19th century, in which our hero ...

All Through the Night

A DIKlassic Review originally published on March 19, 1998 Imagine yourself a young boy trapped in a wretched existence. A demon appears and offers you a hideous choice. A choice so vile that if you did what you knew was morally right, you would be left behind to surely decay and die. But, if you s ...

Highlander Undone

Connie Brockway's latest historical romance, Highlander Undone, boasts a dash of intrigue, a strong period feel, witty dialogue, a secondary romance (that cries out for its own book!) and a couple of engaging protagonists. It's a well-crafted and enjoyable read, even though there are a few things t ...

The Songbird’s Seduction

I must admit to being a little apprehensive when starting The Songbird's Seduction. I'd read mixed reviews of the book, and I'm really not a fan of slapstick, something the story was compared to by a few readers. But I figured the book couldn't last forever and besides, narrator Heather Wilds rarely ...

All Through the Night

Narrated by Alison Larkin Originally published in 1997, All Through the Night is often described as being quite dark in tone for a historical romance and it’s easy to understand why. The hero and heroine are both emotionally damaged and their relationship – at the outset - is based on lust an ...

The Other Guy’s Bride

As I read Ms. Brockway’s much anticipated The Other Guy’s Bride, I was reminded of one of my favorite featherweight films, the 1999 romantic comedy caper “The Mummy.” The novel, like that delirious movie, stars a strong willed, smart tongued English lass and a sexy, cynical swashbuckler trav ...

So Enchanting

After three long years, Connie Brockway has written another historical romance, with the promise of more to come, as well as more contemporaries. As one who mourned the loss of her unique historical voice I say, "Huzzah!" So Enchanting has a similar feeling to her wonderful Bridal Season, and whil ...

Skinny Dipping

I am a longstanding fan of Connie Brockway. Bridal Favors remains one of my most beloved comfort reads. That being said, Skinny Dipping was an unbalanced read that leveled out at mediocre and left me disappointed. Mimi Olson is the very definition of "slacker." At 41 years, she has never owned a ...

Hot Dish

I don’t think it’s any secret to AAR regulars that I’ve been moaning and groaning ever since Connie Brockway, the author of my favorite historical romance, announced her defection from the genre. While I will still allow myself a boo-hoo every now and then, Hot Dish is a dazzling and fun cont ...

My Surrender

Connie Brockway brings her RoseHunters trilogy to a close with My Surrender. Readers grumbling about the dearth of serious historical romances - grumble no more. This is an intense and very satisfying book. Charlotte Nash is the last of the sisters whose father gave his life in a Fr ...
