The Night Before the Wedding

I love Regency historicals and I don't care about the bad rap they get. When done well, Regency historicals are full of the life, energy and romance of the period. Unfortunately, The Night Before the Wedding is one of those Regency historicals that contribute to the bad rep. Hundr ...

Scandal of the Black Rose

I think I’ve hit the wall. The wall built of piles and piles of European Historicals featuring plucky heroines and heroes who’ve worked for the crown. The wall of books that star Regency ingénues who are as far from Austen’s Lizzie and Jane as characters can be. Heroines who engage in sexual ...

Three Nights...

Somewhere in the pages of Three Nights... there was a DIK screaming to get out. But - very, very regretfully - some beautifully written, sexy, sweet, and romantic early chapters give way to a painful mishmash of melodramatic goings-on and overwrought prose culminating in a kind of group hug straight ...

I folded the corners of many pages (something I do when I notice something to comment on - usually something not good) and yet ...

The Lawman's Surrender

It took me awhile to drum up some interest in this book. Just as I was ready to dismiss this book altogether, it got interesting. Unfortunately, it didn't stay that way. The basic plot of The Lawman's Surrender is interesting enough, but the main characters are a little shallow. S ...

Once a Mistress

It's been a while since I've read a book that I disliked as much as this one. Its only redeeming quality - and this is really stretching it - is that it is rife with pathetically humorous purple prose. Diana Covington, beautiful, young, and nubile, is attacked during a party at h ...
