The Man Ban

The best thing about a man ban: resetting life and expectations for yourself. The worst thing about a man ban: falling off the wagon. It’s inevitable, unless you’re heading for a life of abstinence, that following any dating ban you’re going to have to get back in the game at some point. How y ...

Deserted Island, Dreamy Ex!

I’m a huge fan of reality television, so this book sounded like a surefire winner, with the hero and heroine stranded on a deserted island as competitors in a reality documentary. I was disappointed that the reality TV portion of the book was glossed over, but found it to be a light, generally enj ...

Overtime in the Boss's Bed

As long as I’ve been reading romances, I’ve never read a Harlequin Presents. Yes, I know they are very popular, but the titles are so off -putting, and I don’t find ultra-rich, ultra-macho Greeks/Italians/Sheiks/Royalty all that romantic. But I thought I’d try one just to see what the fuss i ...

Marriage: For Business or Pleasure?

I love my meaty reads, but sometimes I'm just looking to dive into the book equivalent of a box of chocolates. In case you're wondering, Harlequin Presents tend to be my bonbons of choice. At their best, they're rich, satisfyingly perfect escapes. Unfortunately some, such as Marriage: For Busines ...

A Trip with the Tycoon

With a large part of the action set in India, A Trip with the Tycoon seemed like a perfect fit for this travel fan. Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the descriptions of various sites, I never warmed to the hero and found the romance lacking. Tamara Rayne’s famous chef husband died over a year ear ...

The Billionaire's Baby

As a reader, I tend to cringe when I see titles such as The Billionaire's Baby. I like series romances, but in recent years I've been reading them in spite of their titles, not because of them. Still, that being said, once I got past the ridiculous title, I found a mostly entertaining and heartwarmi ...

The Boss's Bedroom Agenda

One thing I enjoy about Harlequin Presents novels is their exotic (well, exotic to me) settings. One thing I don't particularly like is that the heroes tend to be arrogant. There's a fine line between sexy alpha and sexist jerk, and it's one they often cross. Such is the case with The Boss's Bedroom ...

The Desert Prince's Proposal

Every now and again I'm in the mood for a quick, breezy read and a well-written series romance fills the bill quite nicely. The Desert Prince's Proposal is a delightful fairy tale, and does a near perfect job of whisking one away from the everyday. Bria Green grew up in wealthy Australian soc ...

Purchased for Pleasure

Trust me, I am not the grammar or style police. I can’t even remotely pretend to be. However, as I read Nicola Marsh’s Purchased for Pleasure, I was struck by an insatiable, irrational urge to add commas everywhere. Obviously, this story didn’t quite work for me. It wasn’t bad...I was simply ...
