Too Hot to Handle

After I had finished reading Too Hot to Handle by Nancy Warren, the word that seemed best to sum up my impression of the book was adorable. It is funny, sexy, and romantic. And it combines the glamour of the 1940s with a firm grounding in today’s world. I loved it. Alexandra Drake is a rising jew ...

Power Play

Power Play makes two Blazes in a row by Nancy Warren that have left me with silly grins on my face. This is an author who’s fast making her way to my auto-buy list. Emily Saunders has come to Elk Crossing, Idaho, to be the bridesmaid in a big family wedding, but she has no inten ...

Under the Influence

It’s been a while since I enjoyed a series romance as much as I enjoyed Nancy Warren’s Under the Influence. I think I read this entire book wearing a smile. It’s a fun, sexy, and refreshingly modern version of the classic tale of opposites attracting. And the cocktail recipes at the start of e ...

The One I Want

The One I Want is a light, fun, contemporary romance. I found myself smiling as I read it, and was enchanted with every character in the book. The author intertwines the romances of three couples, the primary being that of Chloe Flynt and Matthew Tanner. At the start of the book, ...

French Kissing

There's a reason I'm attracted to Harlequin Blaze titles, and it's not the sex; it's the settings. They are more likely to be unusual, urban, and contemporary (in the truest sense of the word). French Kissing is set in Paris during fashion week - give me that over a ranch any day. ...

Private Relations

So far, the books I've read in the Do Not Disturb miniseries, set at New York's sex-themed Hush Hotel, have been fairly good. The same can be said of book four, Nancy Warren's Private Relations, although I couldn't help wishing the subplot had been swapped for the main one. Kit Prestcott and Peter ...

Aftershocks

Nancy Warren's Aftershocks features crisp writing, strong characterizations, and a well-developed plot. Unfortunately, though, it's also saddled with a frustrating heroine and an uncomfortable premise. Briana Bliss had an ulterior motive when she applied to be the executive assistant to Mayor ...

Underneath it All

The main characters in Underneath it All are quite likable. The hero is sweet and gentle with the heroine, and the heroine has an appealing zest for life. Unfortunately, they’re stuck in a stale, cliché-ridden plot. The result is a book that’s strictly average. It could scarcely have starte ...

A Hickey for Harriet

Set in that very same town as its Harlequin Duets partner A Cradle for Caroline, A Hickey For Harriet is the story of a frumpy heroine who lives, not under the thumb of an evil stepmother, but under the slightly smothering love of two doting maiden aunts, who raised her and want only the best for he ...

A Cradle for Caroline

Set in that very same town as its Harlequin Duets partner A Hickey for Harriet, A Cradle For Caroline concerns the editor of the local newspaper, Jonathon Kushner, and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Caroline. Ever since she caught him their bedroom with a naked woman a month ago, Jon can't even get Caro to ...
