Books by Patricia Potter

B
Diablo

If you like Jo Goodman, you’re probably wishing there were more Wild West stories in the same vein. Fortunately for you, back in 1996, Patricia Potter wrote Diablo. Kane O'Brien (known as 'Diablo’) can best be described as ‘white-trash Confederate’: not a former slave owner, he joined up ...

B
The Lawman

I love libraries. Their existence means I can take a line of books I rarely read (say, Harlequin Blaze), coupled with a very hit-and-miss for me genre (the Western) and an author I’m unfamiliar with (Patricia Potter), and voila! Even if the book is a total failure, I haven’t lost. Since I enjoye ...

Catch a Shadow

I often bemoan the fact that a book either doesn't pull together a suspense plot or that it lacks something in the romance department when reading romantic suspense. Catch a Shadow is one of those rare books managing to balance the two elements. The romance moves a tad too quickly to be entirely b ...

Beloved Warrior

Patricia Potter has all of her Ts crossed and Is dotted in the final installment of her Beloved series. There can be no argument that she can write well, with wonderful description, good pacing, and three demensional characters. However, in romance, if there isn’t a spark between the leads, and th ...

Beloved Stranger

Beloved Stranger is a wonderful cabin romance featuring a hero and heroine who are both thoroughly decent, upstanding people. I'm not the biggest fan of Scots romances (with the exception of the Outlander series), but I love books where the characters are good people trying to do the right thing. ...

Tangle of Lies

I really hope Berkley manages to place Tangle of Lies in airport bookstores, because I think it would be a perfect airplane book. As I read it, it reminded a lot of the paperback thrillers I've used to pass the time on flights over the years. Most readers will know the kind of book I mean. It's noth ...

Beloved Impostor

I have long considered Patricia Potter to be a buried treasure. I've seldom seen her books discussed at any length, but she's been out there for years, dependably writing thoughtful, entertaining books. While none that I've read have been DIKs for me, nearly all have been B level reads. That said, h ...

A
Home for Christmas

Patricia Potter's first Silhouette Intimate Moments release, Home for Christmas, didn't receive the attention it deserved when it first came out. Maybe because it was released the same month as Ruth Wind's For Christmas, Forever and Suzanne Brockmann's It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, both excellent b ...

Dancing With A Rogue

Dancing with A Rogue was a difficult book for me to read and, frankly, this is a difficult review to write. Normally when a book doesn't quite work for me, I can pinpoint exactly what caused that reaction. But, surprisingly, though this story failed me to engage to the point that picking it up was h ...

Twisted Shadows

Twisted Shadows began with a scene that grabbed me and drew me in. Unfortunately, the book did not live up to its early potential. Too many characters and a breakneck pace marred a potentially interesting story; it's tough to enjoy a book when so much is going on that the reader gets lost. ...
