Hot Response

Shannon Stacey's Boston Fire series takes an in-depth look at the lives and loves of those who work for the fictional fire department, Ladder 37. I've read and thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in this series and like how the author has balanced the seriousness of the vocation with the less inte ...

Under the Lights

Do you like small town romances set in towns that feel like they actually could exist?  If so, you should try reading Shannon Stacey if you haven’t discovered her already. When I talk about small towns that feel real, the setup of this book hints at it.  Stewart Mills is not an idyllic little ...

Holiday With a Twist

Fans of Shannon Stacey will probably find plenty to like in Holiday With a Twist. The story features likable, down-to-earth characters who actually have lives and families and, well, don't live in a Romlandia vacuum.

The nice thing about reading, though, is that it allows you to move beyond your own experiences and imagine what could be. This week I settled down ...

Heat Exchange

With Heat Exchange, Shannon Stacey kicks off a new series based around Boston firefighters. If they're all going to be as good as this installment, I'm definitely coming back for more! I first encountered Stacey with her Kowalski series. I enjoyed her writing because while her stories contain som ...

Her Holiday Man

This is the time of year that I start binge reading Christmas romances. Something about them just screams "Comfort read!" to me. I'm usually not one for children in romances, but I tend to be a bit more tolerant with my holiday stories. Perhaps that's why I downloaded Her Holiday Man. Shannon Stacey ...

All He Ever Dreamed

I’ve heard some good things about Shannon Stacey, which makes me think that perhaps All He Ever Dreamed was not the best book to start with. While I enjoyed some of the dialog and interactions of the characters, I often found their behavior illogical - which is, admittedly, a hot button for me. ...
