Cartier's Hope

I've been meaning to pick up one of M.J. Rose’s novels for the past couple of years, but I always seemed to get distracted by other books. But when I learned her latest novel, Cartier's Hope, was set in early 1900's New York, I moved it to the top of my TBR list, and I'm so glad I did! Vera Gar ...

Lush Money

Lush Money has a whole lot of fun playing with romance tropes.  Featuring a confident, smart alpha heroine who’ll do anything to get what she wants and a beta hero seeking romance, it’s a fun, sexy, strongly written read – but one I had to downgrade due to some uncomfortable consent issues. ...

The Tycoon

Once upon a time, ranching princess Veronica King was engaged to Clayton Rorick, the up-from-nothing second-in-command at her father’s company. But when she discovers that her father, who wants a male heir, had set lucrative terms for the son-in-law who marries her, Veronica ditches her wedding. W ...

As Good as the First Time

K.M. Jackson’s latest romance, As Good as the First Time, features a driven, practical heroine conquering past hurts when she returns to the small town where she had her young heart broken. Naturally, the boy who left her among the walking wounded has grown into a handsome, heroic single dad and w ...

Tiffany Blues

M.J. Rose’s lyrical, gothic and yet romantic take on life in Lewis Comfort Tiffany’s Tiffany Art Foundation focuses on scandal, heartbreak and romance – and the life of one particular student. Jenny Bell is a decent but poor art student living in New York in the early 1920s who refuses to p ...

Grounded Hearts

In Grounded Hearts the storyline is simple – an RAF pilot bails out of his damaged bomber, sustains injuries and seeks help from a lovely woman in enemy territory. The storytelling, however, is anything but simple. Here, I found romance, adventure, spiritual wisdom, humor, pathos, and a picture of ...

Sister-in-Law

I'm a voracious reader, and as such am always on the lookout for new authors to try. After all, there's nothing quite like discovering a new and talented writer. So, when I read the blurb for Sister-in-Law, the first novel by M.R. Morgan, I decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately however, I won’t ...

The Betting Vow

K.M. Jackson’s The Betting Vow is the third standalone story in the Unconventional Brides series.  The series takes a lighthearted and humorous view of the institution of marriage and all the trappings that go along with the ‘perfect’ wedding. This story veers into marriage of convenience ter ...

Lost Without You

Molly O'Keefe is an author who consistently writes original, moving, and frequently terrific romantic novels that stay with me long after I finish them. Pretty much everything she writes blows me away (although I'm not crazy about her MC stories), and somehow, without my noticing, she's become one o ...

Baby, Come Back

I think M. O’Keefe has voodoo writing skills that give her the ability to hypnotize readers and transform reading into a virtual reality experience. I feel like I lived Baby, Come Back, and I had to remind myself after I finished that it didn’t really happen - comparable to when waking from a dr ...
