An Affair with a Notorious Heiress

If you’re a fan of historical romance, you’re probably also a fan of Lorraine Heath.  I’m both, but I didn’t like this book.  The characters are clichéd, the dialogue is wooden, and the writing - well, if the cover didn’t say Ms. Heath wrote it, I wouldn’t have believed it.  In An Af ...

The Earl Takes All

I’ve been desperate to read The Earl Takes All since I finished Falling into Bed With a Duke, the first book in Lorraine Heath’s Hellions of Havisham Hall series. Even though at that point no synopsis had been published, I had an inkling of where this story might be going – which says a lot fo ...

Texas Destiny

Texas Destiny received an A at AAR a while back and was selected for the NPR Top 100 Romances list, which I'm reading my way through. I had high hopes for it, but ultimately, it let me down. The hero wallowed in bitter self-loathing, and the heroine’s mix of genteel martyrdom and ability to save t ...
