The Woman Left Behind

The Woman Left Behind is the best kind of romantic suspense in the sense that the heroine is no damsel in distress requiring rescue but neither is she a beefed up black-ops assassin as are found in so many female-empowered stories of this genre. Instead she’s somewhere in between; she’s basical ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on August 10, 2000 What does it take to finish a book in one sitting? First, you need the time. Second, you need a book you just cannot put down.

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 16, 1998 So, I'm reading Dream Man, and my husband idly says to me, "Say, how's your book?" With cool deliberation, I lift a brow and raise my glassy and dilated gaze, and say in a voice both low and menacing, "Go away. Take the kids to your ...

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 ...
