Colters' Woman

I read Maya Banks’ novel Colters’ Woman, the first in the Colters’ Legacy series, for one simple reason. I had never before read a ménage romance, and had to start somewhere to correct the deficiency. However, I finished the book and still don’t think I’ve read a ménage romance. But m ...

In His Keeping

One of the hardest things for me to buy is the concept of two people meeting and falling in a soul-joining, all-consuming, forever-and-beyond love in less time than a long holiday weekend.

The Darkest Hour

If every girl isn't crazy about a sharp dressed man, it can be argued that a fair number of us are. And is there anything that denotes sharp dressed like a man in uniform? I think not.
