Books by Catherine Mann

F
Free Fall

Time and again I set Free Fall aside, hating that my duty as a reviewer required me to keep reading. Finally, I treated it like removing a band-aid – I read it as quickly as possible so I could just get it over with. It is quite possibly the worst book I’ve ever finished. Stel ...

Guardian

Ecclesiastes tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. I don't know that I agree with that - authors can make even the oldest stories feel fresh just by adding a new perspective. Seeing the same road through different eyes can make it seem like a changed path. Unfortunately, this book is a s ...

Bossman's Baby Scandal

Let me be perfectly honest. I never would have read Bossman’s Baby Scandal if I’d had to buy it. The title makes me cringe, conjuring up notions of a powerful businessman who gets an employee pregnant. . And that would have been a shame, because the title does this book a disservice. This was a ...

Defender

I’m always eager to read romances in unusual settings, so Catherine Mann’s latest military romance, Defender, set entirely in Turkey, appealed to me. While I found most of the characters interesting, there are too many separate threads to give it a hearty recommendation. Captain Jimmy Gage is ...

On Target

We’ve all had it happen. You’re reading a book, really into it, and something happens that just pulls you out of the moment entirely. That perfectly describes my experience with On Target. Two-thirds of the book were compelling and fast-paced, yet, once I got distracted, I began to notice li ...

Under the Millionaire's Influence

Under the Millionaire’s Influence is an unremarkable series romance – a quick read that didn’t really work for me. It has a nice setting (Charleston, South Carolina), but not much else to recommend it. Starr Cimino lived a nomadic life with con-artist parents until the day social services in ...

Blaze of Glory

A really good military romance is hard to find. Unfortunately, Blaze of Glory doesn’t bring my search for one to an end. Bobby “Postal” Ruznik is an Air Force Special Ops pilot. Dr. Grace Marie “Flipper” Lanier is a profiler for the police who also serves in the Army Reserves. They ma ...

Code of Honor

Lovers of military romance will be thrilled with Code of Honor. It has an exciting plot, and a pair of lovers with chemistry to spare. Joe Greco and Cooper Scott have been best friends since boyhood. A Croation, Joe was rescued by American soldiers and later adopted. Cooper was the only child o ...

Anything, Anywhere, Anytime

Anything, Anywhere, Anytime is a fast-paced military romance with a lot of action, excitement, and romance. I would never say that it’s a bad book, but I can’t say that it’s a really good one, either. When Monica Hyatt was a young girl her mother walked out, leaving Monica ...

Strategic Engagement

Catherine Mann has won a lot of buzz over the past year for her Wingman Warriors series about Air Force men and women, including a RITA win. With Suzanne Brockmann focusing on her single titles, Mann seems to have stepped in to fill the void for military category romances. I've only read one other b ...
