His at Night (#87 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on May 20, 2010 His at Night is the first Sherry Thomas book I've read since Private Arrangements, a book I liked but didn't love. To my mind, this one's better, and certainly worth the anticipation and buzz it's receiving. The hero and heroine are both ...

For My Lady's Heart (#88 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on September 30, 1999 Whenever I start reading a book by Laura Kinsale, I expect an intense and compelling read, a complex love story that’s usually on the darker side, and at least one tortured protagonist. This mixture may not be everyone’s cup of ...

Mine Till Midnight (#90 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally reviewed on September 26, 2007 Lisa Kleypas was one of the first romance authors I read and is one of the few from my early days I still read voraciously. A solid half of her books are on my DIK list, so when I got the chance to review her new historical, I was th ...

Simply Love (#91 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance review originally published on August 16, 2006 It’s been some time now since I had a good cry over a book, but toward the end of Simply Love I had to get out several handkerchiefs. When Mary Balogh is on top of her game, she is hard to beat and she has a real winner here. ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance review originally published on August 28, 1998 In her second installment of the Quinn Brothers trilogy, Nora Roberts is Rising Tides as well as the temperature on the Chesapeake shores.

Almost Heaven (#93 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on August 1, 2001 To be perfectly honest, Almost Heaven, my ultimate favorite romance in the whole world, wasn't exactly that when I first read it. No indeed, it wasn't love-at-first-read in the beginning, but, rather, hate. Let me say that I wasn't used ...

Lady Sophia's Lover (#96 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on May 3, 2002   We all know those writers who recycle their heroes. And our opinions of those writers are almost solely based on whether we like - or don't like - her particular trademark guy. Lisa Kleypas is a different kind of writer, one w ...
