Something Wonderful (#84 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on March 27, 2008 Like most romance readers, I have read many books by Judith McNaught and have loved several of them. When I think of the author, Paradise, Perfect, and A Kingdom of Dreams instantly pop into my mind as beloved favorites, yet I rarely t ...

Almost Heaven (#93 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on August 1, 2001 To be perfectly honest, Almost Heaven, my ultimate favorite romance in the whole world, wasn't exactly that when I first read it. No indeed, it wasn't love-at-first-read in the beginning, but, rather, hate. Let me say that I wasn't used ...

Whitney, My Love (#99 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on September 10, 1999   I've always liked Whitney, My Love. But recently, it has become a very guilty pleasure - kind of like buying a pint of Ben and Jerry's and eating it in one sitting. In the years that I have been on line, I have seen it dis ...

Every Breath You Take

There are some things Judith McNaught does better than anyone. And, if (like me) you’re a sucker for a bigger than life story in which a god-like man is humbled by love, chances are she’s one of your favorite authors. To those who’ve been waiting, I’m happy to report that her newest book i ...

B
Someone to Watch Over Me

Well, it underwent a title change, and its publication was delayed, postponed, delayed. Meanwhile, rumors flew across the Internet: it was a contemporary - no, it was a time-travel - no, it was an historical - then it was a time-travel contemporary romantic suspense. Some readers lost patience, but ...

A
Once and Always

So many of the "classic" romances I read when I was younger seem dated now, relics of a simpler time when men were men, women were women, and authors could write 150,000-word novels and not get half of the words slashed out by ruthless, pen-wielding editors. But viewed from the perspective of today' ...

B
Double Standards

Double Standards was a fun romp of a book. I picked it up because it's set in Michigan, primarily in Detroit. I live in Michigan, and have lived in Detroit. I thought it might be fun to read a book with a more familiar setting, to take a break from books with cowboys or English Dukes. ...

Paradise

Part of me is always afraid to reread an old favorite, especially if I originally read it in my pre-reviewing days. What if it doesn't measure up? What if it's not as good as I remembered? With Paradise, I needn't have worried. I started it during a week when I had about a million other things to do ...
