In Deep Voodoo

Stephanie Bond's book In Deep Voodoo has an interesting plot and a wonderful cast of quirky characters. If only the hero and heroine had a spark of chemistry, it would have been an excellent read. But still, a pretty good read is nothing to sneer at. Penny Francisco and Deke Black were college sw ...

My Favorite Mistake

Stephanie Bond is an old favorite whose recent books I've thought were less satisfying than her early work, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought her new Blaze. It's the sequel to her 2004 Harlequin Temptation, Cover Me. In that book, the heroine received a make-it-yourself dildo kit and f ...

Whole Lotta Trouble

Last year I reviewed Stephanie Bond's Kill the Competition, a book that fell flat for me. Having enjoyed some of her previous books, I knew I wanted to give her another chance. Whole Lotta Trouble was the right book for that. While far from perfect, it's like a better version of that earlier book. ...

Party Crashers

If I don't always have to like a heroine, I do have to respect her intelligence and her honesty. Sadly, the heroine of Stephanie Bond's latest is sadly lacking in both. Frankly, this woman frolics in TSTL-land for a number of reasons. Within days of starting a new job she despera ...

Kill the Competition

Stephanie Bond's first book for Avon, Kill the Competition, is a surprisingly flat offering from an author adept at zippy dialogue and fast pacing. This book has neither. Belinda Hennessy moved to Atlanta to start over after a disastrous attempt at matrimony in Cincinnati. Taking a job at the ...

I Think I Love You

When was the last time you read a book that left you laughing, smiling, and overall feeling great? I hadn't had one of those books in a while - until I picked up Stephanie Bond's latest. I Think I Love You is the story of a dysfunctional Southern family whose secrets are finally catching up with the ...

Our Husband

Earlier this year I read Maggie Osbourne's I Do, I Do, I Do, which was so good it gave me a taste for bigamy plots. While I didn't enjoy Our Husband quite as much, it's a good read, reminiscent of books by two of my favorite writers: Olivia Goldsmith and Susan Issacs. Travelling salesman Raymon ...

Too Hot to Sleep

Georgia Adams is a registered nurse at a Birmingham hospital. Her life is ordinary and routine, but she’s got sexual urges that just are not being satisfied by her very mundane boyfriend Rob, who, after ten months of dating, still hasn’t pressed her for sex. She’s frustrated and, in her opinio ...

Bond, Stephanie Bond, is a name you should remember when you're in the mood for a light, funny romance. Her latest, About Last Night..., is no exception. Part of the Temptation subseries The Wrong Bed, About Last Night... features two people trapped in a quarantined hotel room: a bride and the best ...

Wife is a Four Letter Word

Today while surfing the 'Net, somebody mentioned this book and how good it was and how funny it was and I thought to myself, "Gee, I picked that up the other night. Think I'll go read it." So, tonight I sat down, expecting to have a laugh or two because most books that people say have them "fall dow ...
