Cry No More (#70 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on January 7, 2003 Cry No More is particularly apt title, since I cried my way throughout this read.

Troublemaker

I love Linda Howard novels. I also hate them. The author has produced a mixed bag of books for me, some of them being favored DIK’s and others teetering in that no man’s land of low C or high D. When I heard she had a new novel coming out I was both eager and trepidatious about reviewing it. On ...

Diamond Bay

I read Diamond Bay in print years ago in the midst of a Linda Howard glom. When it became available for audio review, I remembered liking the book and thought it would be fun to revisit. Big mistake; this was a painful experience. I disliked the narration and the audio experience pointed out flaws i ...

Running Wild: The Men from Battle Ridge

Running Wild is the second successful collaboration between Linda Howard and Linda Jones. From my point of view the two have merged their writing talents seamlessly to write a slightly flawed but enjoyable read.         Zeke Decker never really thought that his long time housekeeper ...

Kill and Tell

Narrated by Natalie Ross Kill and Tell is a terrific combination – one of my favorite narrators with a work by one of my favorite authors, set in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans.

My curiosity combined with faith in Linda Howard and an appreciation for edgy heroes rewarded me after j ...
