Trouble in High Heels

Several years ago, I read and enjoyed a few of Leanne Banks’ books, and since then I’ve always kept an eye out for new books by her. When I saw her new book Trouble in High Heels on the list of books to review, I was excited. Unfortunately, by the end of it, I was disappointed. ...

Billionaire's Marriage Bargain

Leanne Banks' Billionaire's Marriage Bargain is the sequel to Bedded by the Billionaire, a book I reviewed on my blog earlier in the year. Although written for Silhouette's Desire line, these two books, and in particular this one, are very reminiscent of Harlequin Presents novels, albeit ones with A ...

A Date with Dr. Frankenstein

Leanne Banks' A Date for Dr. Frankenstein is the first of two connected series titles she wrote for Silhouette Special Edition in 1995; the other is Expectant Father, which earned a B+ from me many, many years ago. This one is also good, featuring a romance between a widowed father of a small boy an ...

Foot Loose

Writing a series of books can be a challenge for an author. Balancing the exposition in each succeeding book - too much will bore readers of the previous books, and too little leaves new readers bewildered – takes a lot of skill. In Foot Loose Leanne Banks expects the reader to jump right in, an ...

Underfoot

I have several of Leanne Banks's series romances on my comfort read shelf, and I've always loved her funny and sexy stories. But I never warmed up to the hero and heroine of Underfoot and the story was forgettable. This one was a major disappointment. Carter-Aubrey Katherine (Trina) Roberts (wil ...

Billionaire's Proposition

I’m an occasional series romance reader; every so often I just get in the mood for one. If I don’t have any sitting on my shelf waiting for review, I’ll go pick one up, which is always a fun process for me. I’ll peruse the shelves full of secret babies and rich bosses, reading the back cover ...

Feet First

I have to admit, not much about this book made sense to me. Unfortunately, since this “I’m not buying it” factor applies to both the way the two major characters act throughout the book and the basic structure of the plot, it’s a big problem. Jenny Prillaman works as the assi ...

Feet First

Jenny Prillaman works in the design department of an upper-end shoe company, Bellagio shoes. When her boss checks into rehab, Jenny is suddenly thrust into a new position, leading the design team for Brooke Tarantino, a society belle who is getting married. Jenny is in charge of designing shoes for ...

Some Girls Do

There's no question that Leanne Banks' single title debut is charming and breezy road romance. That said, however, Some Girls Do is somewhat predictable and features some surprisingly retro plot elements. Working as a personal assistant to a rich jerk may pay well, but in order to keep her j ...

Expecting His Child

This was a hard book to grade. On one hand, it read smoothly, had really great characters and I was quite engaged in it. On the other hand - not a whole lot happened. Still, the characters were enormously likable and on that basis it ended up being a slightly-better-than-average series romance. ...
