Flirting with Temptation

Flirting With Temptation has a different take on the Big Misunderstanding: It happened six months before the book begins. This could have been interesting if the hero and heroine had met again at the beginning of the book. Unfortunately, the two don't reconnect for nearly 100 pages, leading to a v ...

Live and Yearn

I and bought Live and Yearn because I absolutely hated what I was reading, couldn't get through it, and wanted to read something(anything!) else.

Good Girls Don't

Good Girls Don't reminded me a bit of Sex In the City. As I'm not a fan of the show, I didn't warm up to St. John's lead characters. Call me old-fashioned, but I think that there needs to be something more to a relationship than good looks and great sex, plus the heroine's job was a major turn off ...
