Her Colorado Man

Her Colorado Man is Remington Steele meets Americana. (For any of you too young to remember it/hear about it in the first place, Remington Steele was a detective series from the 80s in which a female detective created a fictitious male detective as a front for her business. A thief shows up claiming ...

The Preacher's Daughter

Cheryl St. John is keeping the flame of Western Romance alive almost single handedly and doing a wonderful job of it. Her latest, The Preacher’s Daughter, is sweet, romantic, and just plain sigh-worthy. It came thisclose to being a DIK, but fell just a tiny bit short. Can I rate it a B++? Lorab ...

A Husband By Any Other Name

Cheryl St. John is most acclaimed as an author of western romances. I confess, I haven't read any of them, but one of her contemporaries, A Husband By Any Other Name, is among my favorite series romances. Dan Beckett always loved Lorraine Loring, but he was forced to stand aside as hi ...

His Secondhand Wife

In the Harlequin Historical line, Cheryl St. John is an auto-buy for me. I have read all of her books and have enjoyed them very much.

I knew if I waited long enough I'd find a another good series romance. And I did. I have loved Cheryl St. John's Harlequin Historical titles, so when I saw her name on this book, I grabbed it. What I found was a book that praises small town life without putting down the city. It is a hymn to family, ...

Joe's Wife

Get out the handkerchiefs ladies, this is a good one! Joe's Wife is a three hanky read in the best sense. It's a marriage of convenience story between a widow from a good family and a man who is the son of the town whore. When Tye Hatcher came home from the Civil War, no one would hire him. No ma ...

The Doctor's Wife

Dr. Caleb Chaney was such a nice guy that it was quite a pleasure to read how he transformed the frightened and wounded Ellie Parrish into the warmly loving woman she deserved to be. Caleb was not the sort of romance hero who is nice to everyone but the heroine, nor was he the sort to wallow in his ...
