The Temptation of Your Touch

Teresa Medeiros used to write books set in a wide variety of times and places and I have to admit that when she started setting everything in 19th century England, I stopped reading quite as avidly. However, her latest series sounded like it might be a bit different from much of what is on the marke ...

The Devil Wears Plaid

I’ve read this book before. Teresa Medeiros herself wrote it. This version is nice enough, but the problem is that she’s done it better in the past and I’m hoping she can do it better in the future. Emmaline Marlow is about to get married to the old laird of the Scottish Hepbu ...

Some Like It Wild

In Some Like It Wild, Pamela Darby is the stoic, logical, plain-looking daughter of a ravishing, sensual actress who has just died in a fire. Pamela suspects murder but does not tell this to her younger half-sister - who is a ravishing coquette in her mother’s vein - because Pamela is accustomed t ...

Some Like It Wicked

Medeiros’s latest offering, Some Like It Wicked, hooked me from the very first page. Its well-written characters and snappy, intelligent dialogue had me loving almost every moment. Her last several books have been great and I was so happy to see that this one live up to the same standard. I plan t ...

The Vampire Who Loved Me

In a blog entry made by Teresa Medeiros a short while back, she mentioned how upset she was at finishing The Vampire Who Loved Me. She cried on her bed because she missed Portia and Julian. After a few days of recollection, I have to agree. I miss them, too. This sequel to After Midnight definitely ...

Yours Until Dawn

This is the Teresa Medeiros that I love. This book has my favorite element in a romance, internal conflict, and a bond between the characters based on emotion, not a bunch of annoying external circumstances. There is no distracting subplot to remove focus from Gabriel and Samantha, the supporting ca ...

One Night of Scandal

When I read a book like this from an author I once enjoyed, I wonder whether my tastes have changed or if the author has dramatically altered her style. Many books by Teresa Medeiros sit on my keeper shelf, but after reading One Night of Scandal, careful consideration of the above question seems a n ...

A Kiss to Remember

Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are fairy-tale stories that have been used in countless romance novels. While I love those tales and never tire of them, it was a most pleasant surprise to find Teresa Medeiros dusting off Sleeping Beauty for her delightfully funny and sometimes poignant new book, ...

Heather and Velvet

For some people, a memorable weekend may mean partying all night and sleeping until noon, or making a nice trip into the countryside. For me, a perfect weekend means cuddling into an easy chair, with a cup of tea in one hand and a book in the other, and enough time on my hands to continue reading fo ...

The Bride and The Beast

We all know the current trend: romance author hits the big time and scores a hardcover deal. Of course we're thrilled that our favorite writer is finally garnering the attention she deserves, but secretly we cringe because we fear we've lost yet "another one" to mainstream fiction or gritty suspense ...
