Cowboy, It's Cold Outside

Around the holidays, I sometimes just can't resist a Christmas romance. Cowboy, It's Cold Outside appeared on my doorstep and filled a reading void. It's pretty Christmassy as holiday romances go, but not really anything groundbreaking or fabulous as far as contemporary romances go. Paige MacGreg ...

Million Dollar Cowboy

As a native of New York, I’m not very familiar with the ranches found out West. Perhaps that’s why I’ve always loved Westerns - they are an escape to a completely different world. Although Million Dollar Cowboy takes place in modern times, reading it was still a nice departure from the cold we ...

All Out of Love

It seems like I had more than my fare share of "light summer reads" to review this month, All Out of Love by Lori Wilde being one of them. While it's a delicious ugly duckling story that I great enjoyed reading, it wasn't particularly life-altering. The small town of Cupid, Texas is famous for on ...

Love at First Sight

Philosophically, I don't have a problem with love at first sight. I know it's a premise that some romance readers just can't buy into, but I can manage to suspend my disbelief most of the time (even if I might think that usually it's lust at first sight that eventually matures into love). But though ...

The Cowboy and the Princess

I don't usually judge a book by its title, but I have to admit that I didn't expect much from The Cowboy and the Princess. It sounded silly and clichéd to me, but I was hoping I might be wrong. Unfortunately, I was right. What I got was a cowboy hero-worship novel with an unrealistic and unoriginal ...

The First Love Cookie Club

Awkward only begins to describe the events in the prologue of this book. Seeing the future heroine humiliated in an extreme way caused me to start Chapter One with a negative perspective plus some skepticism as well. Sarah Collier is a slightly overweight fifteen-year-old with braces o ...

The Sweetheart's Knitting Club

I love straight contemporary romances, and wanted to like Lori Wilde’s The Sweethearts’ Knitting Club. While it has an interesting hero and some complex secondary characters, I disliked the heroine so much that I cannot recommend it. Membership in the Sweethearts’ Knitting Clu ...

Addicted to Love

Sometimes I’m in the mood for a cutesy, unrealistic, contrived story. This sounds like a bad thing, but sometimes those plots are just what you need – and Lori Wilde’s Addicted to Love is one of those stories. Rachael Henderson is a hopeless romantic who has been left at th ...
