Books by Linda Howard

A
Mackenzie's Heroes

A DIKlassic Review originally published on March 6, 2000 The books in the Mackenzie saga are among Linda Howard's best, where the men are capable, sexy as hell, and the heroines a perfect match in their own way. Mackenzie's Heroes deals with two of the children of Wolf and Mary Mackenzie from Ma ...

Troublemaker

I love Linda Howard novels. I also hate them. The author has produced a mixed bag of books for me, some of them being favored DIK’s and others teetering in that no man’s land of low C or high D. When I heard she had a new novel coming out I was both eager and trepidatious about reviewing it. On ...

Diamond Bay

I read Diamond Bay in print years ago in the midst of a Linda Howard glom. When it became available for audio review, I remembered liking the book and thought it would be fun to revisit. Big mistake; this was a painful experience. I disliked the narration and the audio experience pointed out flaws i ...

Running Wild: The Men from Battle Ridge

Running Wild is the second successful collaboration between Linda Howard and Linda Jones. From my point of view the two have merged their writing talents seamlessly to write a slightly flawed but enjoyable read.         Zeke Decker never really thought that his long time housekeeper ...

Death Angel

Narrated by Joyce Bean Back in 2008, I hesitantly picked up the print version of Death Angel wondering if I could enjoy a romance featuring a cold-blooded assassin and a mistress to a drug lord. My curiosity combined with faith in Linda Howard and an appreciation for edgy heroes rewarded me after j ...

Kill and Tell

Narrated by Natalie Ross Kill and Tell is a terrific combination – one of my favorite narrators with a work by one of my favorite authors, set in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. Marc Chastain, NOPD, has a gut feeling that the death of a man deemed homeless just doesn’t fit the normal pr ...

To Die For

Narrated by Fran Liebow Easily sitting in my top five favorite contemporaries, I fell in love with Blair and Wyatt in the print version and read To Die For twice before discovering in audio. I excitedly purchased a copy online only to wait weeks for it to arrive in the mail (no digital downloads a ...

Veil of Night

I’ve read three Linda Howard books at this point, and I’ve come to the conclusion that she is an author I like but don’t love. I’ve enjoyed two out of the three, but neither of them push her into auto-buy status for me. Veil of Night has some funny moments and great sex scenes, but when all ...

Blood Born

A war is brewing between human and vampire. Problem is, neither side declared it. Luca Ambrose is one of the rarest of the rare: Born vampire rather than a turned one. His powers are stronger, his senses more acute. For the past several years he has worked as an enforcer for the C ...

A
Son of the Morning

Narrated by Natalie Ross Only recently released in audio format, this 1997 time travel romance gets an A on both narration and content. Hero Niall is classic Howard style at its best while Grace is the smart woman on the run. Narrator Natalie Ross performs multiple male voices with clear distinctio ...
