A 5th Avenue Affair

When I first started reading romances, they all featured young heroines with older heroes. My reading tastes have changed over the years, and I don't enjoy young heroines as much anymore. They inevitably seem, well, immature and naïve. Although the heroine of this book isn't terrible, she did se ...

A 5th Avenue Christmas

A 5th Avenue Christmas didn't work for me. At all. Though the premise is interesting, the actual execution falls short. Part of the problem is that the book itself is short, but it's also crippled by characters who would be annoying in a book of any length. Meryl Carrington i ...

White Tiger's Fancy

I knew this book was in trouble when I found myself rooting for the man-eating tiger to finish off the hero and heroine during their hunt for the beast.

A novel that's a cross between a mail-order bride romance and Logan's Run doesn't come my way very often, and yet I had that nagging feeling. By book's end I realized where the feeling was coming from. The protagonists and t ...

Only In Your Arms

At times, I wanted to throw tomatoes at the hero of Only in Your Arms. (This bad boy was so bad he was good.) At times, I wanted to pelt the heroine's father with onions. Sometimes, the plot of seemed too busy. But darn it, I enjoyed this book, and recommend it heartily, flaws and all. Lady J ...

Seducing Alicia

Dr. Alicia Underwood is a top radiation expert working for a company called Envirotech in Seattle. The “Wipe Clean Project” is hers alone, and will, if this groundbreaking research is proven effective, create a bacteria that will ultimately “eat” radioactive waste at the earth surface, keep ...
