Return of the Rogue

Return of the Rogue had potential, yet nagging details continued to add up and left me with many unanswered questions. Usually, historical details don’t bother me too much. I understand how hard historical research can be – yet sometimes details, big and small, can’t be ignored. For exampl ...

The Highlander's Bride

Some say it’s all in the details. If so, Donna Fletcher missed that memo. The Highlander’s Bride is filled with bad dialogue and a bad plot tied together neatly with a vague setting. Not a detail in sight except for many, many descriptions of the scent and color of the heroine’s red hair. ...

The Daring Twin

If you look carefully at the cover of this book, you'll notice that the couple in the ridiculous clinch have more vacuous expressions than most. Normally, you can't judge a book by its cover, but in this case, the vapid pair on the front show you exactly what to expect within. Tarr of Hellewyk ...

Dark Warrior

Having never read Donna Fletcher, I wasn't sure what to expect. Of most interest to me about Dark Warrior was its setting, along with an outside obstacle to the romance: the Church. These draws all too quickly became drawbacks. Church persecution of supposed heretics is much discussed but rarely see ...

Legendary Warrior

Legendary Warrior begins promisingly enough with an interesting set-up, a dark, tortured soul of a hero, and a heroine with a fascinating talent. Unfortunately, though, the journey quickly takes the main road, eschewing interesting twists for the predictable. At times, its larger-than-life drama an ...

Remember the Magic

Remember the Magic is an acceptable read. There's nothing all that wrong with it, but nothing that stands out either. In the sixteenth century, Sydney Wyrrd left Scotland and the chieftain she loved in order to spare him the trouble of being associated with a witch. She lived the next five c ...

Love Me Forever

When I hear the word "warrior" used to describe an historical hero, I expect certain things from him. I expect him to be arrogant, muscled, stubbornly sure of himself, intimidating, closed off from his emotions, willing/able to take on all comers in fights, able to accomplish the impossible, etc. Wh ...

Isle of Lies

I chose this book because of the title - Isle of Lies - isn't it great? It implies intrigue, seduction, mystery, and an island. Unfortunately, this book has none of those things; the hero and heroine don't even go near an island! Once again, I found myself searching for a more appropriate title, and ...

Irish Hope

Irish Hope is the story of a young woman’s search for true love. It would have been nice had the author made better use of the promising setting, but she seemed to settle instead for oft-used plot devices and plenty of predictibility. The Hope in the title is Lady Hope, who ...

Magical Memories

It certainly looks like centuries-old witches can be as TSTL as silly young girls. At the beginning of Magical Memories, Tempest, an ages-old (and very beautiful) witch decides to drive home after her sister's wedding. It is dark, it is snowy, it is slick and dangerous. If I were as powerful a wi ...
