The Bright Unknown

One of the last passages in the The Bright Unknown is “A lot of bad had to happen for us to have all the good in our lives.” One thing I can definitely attest to is that a lot of bad happens in this story. Whether that was truly necessary in order for any good to occur - and whether the story ne ...

The Flatshare

Clever, fresh, funny and fun, The Flatshare is one of the best romance novels of 2019.  I’m not quite sure how I missed it when it came out in May, but if you did, too... well, make time for this absolute gem of a book now. After a traumatic break-up with her on again, off again boyfriend Just ...

A Midsummer Knight's Kiss

A Midsummer Knight’s Kiss gives Elisabeth Hobbes another solid notch in her quiver of appealing romances.  While I liked this one less than her phenomenal last novel, she still produces a fine romance that, even with its problems, will make readers happy. Back when they were kids, Rowenna – ...

A Runaway Bride for the Highlander

Sometimes there’s nothing better for the soul than a good, sweet romance about two people asserting their right to be in love and battling back the demons that threaten to keep them from being so.  Elisabeth Hobbes’ A Runaway Bride for the Highlander is the third book in the multi-author, cross ...

Desire Lines

The Welsh Blades series is darker and significantly more complex than most of the historical fare I read; its heroines are strong and powerful - far from cookie cutter in every way.  Clever, complicated and thought-provoking, each of the novels in the series has engaged my heart and mind in equal m ...

The Dark Knight

As a fan of medieval romances, I’m so, so excited to have discovered this buried treasure. Venetian nobleman Dante Chiaveri’s parents were murdered by his grasping uncle, so Dante and his sister fled to England, where Dante grew up to fill the role of the King’s Assassin. Everything is in p ...

The Princess

Elizabeth Elliott’s fine Montagues series follows another young woman through a new marriage in Medieval times in the aptly titled The Princess. The widowed-young Isabel Plantagenet of Ascalon, Dowager Countess of Rheinbaden in Germany, possesses a spine of iron – which is a good thing when s ...

Not the Duke's Darling

Hard as it is for readers when a favourite, long-running series ends, it must be equally so for the author who has lived with those characters and scenarios for years – and who then has to follow up that success with something new that will continue to please fans of the previous books as well as, ...

Unspeakable

Unspeakable is book four in Elisabeth Naughton’s Deadly Secrets series featuring the adoptive McClane siblings, and although I haven’t read the other books, it works pretty well as a standalone.  There are, of course, some recurring characters and past events referred to, but the author gives e ...

Tell Me You're Mine

Elisabeth Norebäck's Tell Me You're Mine was originally published in Sweden in 2017, and I'm so pleased it's now available to English-speaking readers. It's one of those books I hated to put down once I started reading, so be sure to have a good chunk of time to devote to it whenever you pick it up ...
