To Tempt a Rogue

A Retro Review originally published June 20, 1999 To Tempt a Rogue concludes the trilogy telling the story of the Delaney brothers. Your tolerance for this book will depend on whether you can put up with roguish and distrustful heroes, silly dialogue tags, big misunderstandings, and plots that rel ...

The Outlaws: Rafe

There's nothing quite so awkward as catching yourself laughing at what you know isn't meant to be funny. And boy, did I feel awkward while reading The Outlaws: Rafe. I just couldn't help but laugh at many of the ridiculous things the cardboard characters did, or their stilted dialogue, or the incred ...

A Taste of Sin

St. John Thornton, better known as Sinjun, is being forced to marry against his will. He's fourteen, and his bride is a mere child of seven, and she's just as happy to be marrying him - as she demonstrates with a couple of kicks to his shins. Fortunately for Sinjun, after the ceremony he can go back ...

The Black Knight

The Black Knight is like a window to the past. Not to medieval times, but to the 1970s - when the prose dripped with purple, and the hero and heroine vowed to hate each other forever but hopped into bed two sentences later. Romance has long since moved past these conventions, but someone forgot to t ...

Gunslinger

Chloe Sommers is in a bind. She needs to sell her cattle at the railhead before the taxes on her ranch are due or she will end up forfeiting her land to local baddie Calvin Talbot. The first problem is that she has no hired gun to protect her drovers on the cattle drive and Talbot will use any means ...

Viking!

I am hard put to define Viking! as a romance novel. It wasn't romantic. As far as being a novel goes, the only reason it can make that claim is because it (somehow) managed to get published. If you want to read a romance novel, do not read this book. Do not even buy it, as high sales statistics will ...

Pirate

Most of us remember our first love with some clarity. Certainly we'd recognize him if we saw him again - even if many years had gone by. Imagine my surprise then, when the heroine in Connie Mason's newest release Pirate doesn't recognize her own husband because he's wearing an eye patch! Granted, he ...

To Tame a Renegade

Don't bother. The End. I guess I can't leave it at that - you'll want details. Well, I can't review this book. Sorry, I just can't. I'm not even going to tell you the plot. It's too inane. As I read this book, I found myself becoming more and more irritated by the inane inconsistencies, the in ...

Pure Temptation

Pure Temptation sure sounds tempting, doesn't it? Unfortunately, carelessness by the author and an over-reliance on sex makes this provocative title a less than provocative read Connie Mason's first mistake begins on page five of this book, where she describes the hero "surrounded by simpering femal ...
