Skylar's Outlaw

Neither melodrama nor anti-climactic resolutions are good for a story. It’s even worse when they are combined. Since that's exactly what happens in Skylar's Outlaw, this just isn't a book I'd recommend seeking out. Skylar Belle is the child of a Texas ranch owner who, upon his death, left th ...

The Sheriff of Horseshoe, Texas

I’m a sucker for romances set in Texas. Sadly, Linda Warren’s The Sheriff of Horseshoe, Texas, just didn’t work for me. After his wife’s death six years earlier, Wyatt Carson moved from Austin with his two-year old daughter to take a position as Sheriff of his hometown. He a ...

Texas Heir

I tend to like stranded-in-the-wilderness stories. Maybe it’s just my inner ten-year-old’s desire to be a survivalist that hasn’t quite disappeared, but I always like seeing the hero and heroine of a romance work to save each other. Cari Michaels worked for what she has, fr ...

Texas Bluff

--CAUTION: SECRET BABY AHEAD. WATCH OUT FOR BIG MISUNDERSTANDINGS-- I know, I know. What did I think I was getting when I read the plot description?

Once A Cowboy

I generally avoid reading narrowly focused series lines as this one, the Harlequin American, because they seem such blatant marketing ploys. This book, with an obviously appropriate cover to match its title, practically screams, “Cowboys! Cowboys! Get your Red Hot Cowboy Here!” But I try not ...

Son of Texas

This book was so bad I found myself taking a break after almost every paragraph. I'd put it down, pet my cats or take a sip of tea, and then remember that the faster I got through the book the faster I could put it down and never think of it again. The plot was flimsy, there was not an iota of chemi ...

The Right Woman

The Right Woman offers a good argument against romance novel sequels. Everything about it feels tacked-on and unnecessary. The book evidently continues a story begun in the author’s previous book, The Wrong Woman. I haven’t read it, and nothing this story tells me about it makes me want to g ...
