The Woman at the Front

I associate Lecia Cornwall’s name with historical romances, although I confess I haven’t read any of her work in that genre.  The blurb for her latest book, The Woman at the Front, caught my eye because of its First World War setting; I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Northern France (pre-C ...

Enchanted by the Highlander

Lecia Cornwall’s Highland Fairytales Series – about the enormous MacLeod clan – adds another volume with this story of star-crossed Scottish and English lovers in Enchanted by the Highlander. Shy Gillian MacLeod longs for romance and adventure – something that she’s rather too timid to ...

Say Yes to the Scot: A Highland Wedding Box Set

I’ve been on a Highlander kick recently (I’ll blame it on Outlander withdrawal).  Four authors put their spin on this classic romantic character type in the new collection Say Yes to the Scot: A Highland Wedding Box Set.  Each story showcases all the stubborn, proud and slightly possessive qua ...

The modern, giant-chested heroes who apparently hate shirts just don't do much for me. And yet it would be a real shame to miss What a Lady Most Desires. It's ac ...

The Secret Life of Lady Julia

What’s the difference between a love story and a romance novel? Is it based on the amount of romance there is? Does it have to do with the main focus of the story? Whatever that difference is, I would definitely categorize Lady Julia as more a love story than a romance novel. Lady ...

Secrets of a Proper Countess

Secrets of a Proper Countess is one of those books that has a remarkably accurate title. It is, indeed, about a proper countess with secrets. Those secrets, though, almost prevented me from enjoying an otherwise very good book - you see, they didn’t need to be secrets at all. Isobel Maitland, t ...
