The saga continues! For those of you who sighed and lamented the conclusion of the Faire Isle trilogy, get ready for more. The legend of the Silver Rose, the Book of Shadows, the Dark Queen, and more return in The Huntress. After Catriona O’Hanlon's step-father exiled her from her Irish cla ...

Winterbourne

I wanted to do something special for my 50th review for AAR. After reading Susan Carroll’s magnificent Winterbourne (originally published in 1987), I knew this was that something. The Medieval Romance is one of my favorite sub-genres, and they are few and far between. Good ones are hard to find ...

The Silver Rose

The Silver Rose is the last book in Susan Carroll's Sisters of Faire Isle trilogy. It beautifully weaves all the threads left dangling from the first two books into a rich tapestry of magic, history, passion, intrigue, and impossible love. Faire Isle has undergone a drastic change from when we fi ...

I turned the last of the 560 pages in the second book of Susan Carroll’s “sweeping” historical trilogy and heaved a big sigh of pleasure. Finally! I thought. Then I debated whether to go back to the beginning and start all over again. I was tempted, but didn’t do it - not right that minute a ...

The Night Drifter

The Night Drifter is one of the most unique romance novels I have ever stumbled across. It's a story of man who falls in love with a woman's soul before he falls in lust with her body. It's also a story of a woman who falls in love with a man she can't touch. Yes, it's a bit corny in places, but if ...

The Bride Finder

It was a dark and stormy book. That phrase kept running through my mind when I read The Bride Finder, Susan Carroll's new paranormal romance. The Bride Finder comes with glowing recommendations from seven romance writers. Is it as good as the cover blurbs? No - it's a fair book, but I was not bowled ...
