C
Seduced at Midnight

Jacquie D'Alessandro's last two books trod that precarious line between a B- and a C+ for me. Sadly, Seduced at Midnight crossed over that line. While there were a couple of things I was willing to overlook in the previous books in this series, there are just too many problems - among the admitted ...

B-
Confessions at Midnight

Though I enjoyed Confessions at Midnight, I felt as though I missed something along the way since I want to experience the characters falling in love, not just experience the attraction. Carolyn Turner, Viscountess Wingate and a widow of three years, has finally decided to reente ...

Sleepless at Midnight

Jacquie D'Alessandro is an author who is fast becoming a Buried Treasure. She flies under most people's radar, and while she's yet to have, in my opinion, that fabulous, not to be missed breakout novel, she writes consistently enjoyable characters and stories. Sleepless at Midnight begins a new se ...

B-
Never a Lady

After three books by this author, I’m still not sure if I like her work. Never a Lady fared better than the others and the last fifty pages, along with a beautiful ending, bumped my grade up so that this one earns a qualified recommendation. Alexandra, Madame Larchmont, is a ski ...

Not Quite a Gentleman

A decent hero falling for a spoiled, self-centered heroine is always a stretch for me when reading romance, but a premise I can accept if the heroine is allowed to mature and become more gracious within the course of the story. But if that character growth is missing for the majority of the book, I ...

Who Will Take This Man?

Well, what do I have here? A book that hinges on a real live Ancient Egyptian Curse. Normally, I would be rolling my eyes and making derisive noises, but in Who Will Take This Man, the silly plot actually works. Wonderful characters and a good dose of humor made this a very engaging read. Phi ...

Whirlwind Affair

Remember those "compare and contrast" essay questions? Frankly, I'm almost sorry I'm not in Mrs. Gordon's English class right now because writing a cogent essay on Whirlwind Affair would be a piece of cake. A study in contrasts, the book contains some incredibly refreshing eleme ...

B-
The Bride Thief

"Who was that masked man?" A dashing nobleman doing good for the populace while hiding his true identity behind a mask - what a romantic theme! In Jacquie D'Alessandro's latest effort, Zorro meets Beau Brummell, but with decidedly mixed results. Having witnessed his parents' unhappy un ...

B-
Whirlwind Wedding

If you've been searching for a humorous read, this is one you might want to try. Whirlwind Wedding starts out with some funny scenes and great dialogue. Toward the end of the book a lame argument spoils the fun temporarily, but overall this is an enjoyable read. When Austin Jamison, Duke of Bradfo ...

Kiss the Cook

Got the reading doldrums after reading a dreary or disappointing book? Can't seem to find a sexy romance that will make you smile from ear to ear? Well, I've found a book that may temporarily cure your reading woes. It's a skinny little series romance called Kiss The Cook and it's a major steal at ...
