To Catch a Bride

With a setting beyond the traditional and consistent characterizations, Anne Gracie’s To Catch A Bride is a bright spot in what seems to be a dull selection of historical romances recently. When it becomes obvious that Rafe Ramsey will be his brother’s heir, the pressure is on t ...

His Captive Lady

Although Anne Gracie’s first installment in the Devil Riders series, The Stolen Princess, rather disappointed me, I decided to give the series a second chance with His Captive Lady. I am glad I did because this book lacks the silliness of its predecessor and instead features a strong, likable coup ...

The Stolen Princess

Lately, I’ve been in something of an average book slump. Books have excited me with very strong, interesting beginnings, convincing me that I finally found one to pull me out of the ditch. Then, small but consistent problems chip away at potential greatness, leaving something that is…well... pre ...

The Perfect Kiss

For reasons having more to do with time rather than with my level of interest in her books, I’d never before read Anne Gracie. My reaction to my first book by the author is a bit of a mixed bag. To put it bluntly, my biggest problem is that The Perfect Kiss seems like an unusuall ...

The Perfect Stranger

Faith Merridew left the safety of London society to elope with the love of her life. Months later, though, when they are married and living in Paris, she discovers her husband is a bigamist.

The Perfect Waltz is the book to share with a friend who has never read a romance novel - consider adding it to your conversion kit. It represents the genre well, with likable characters who have hidden depths, a genuinely compatible hero and heroine, a secondary romance almost on a par with the mai ...

The Perfect Rake

Anne Gracie burst upon the romance scene in 2001 with two stellar books, Tallie's Knight and The Gallant Waif. It has been three long years since she has had a new novel published, but she is back with The Perfect Rake, the first book in a new series about the Merridew sisters. After their parent ...

An Honorable Thief

I tried to finish Anne Gracie's An Honorable Thief while walking up a hill on the way to work this morning but couldn't manage it. So, I did what anyone in my position would do; I sat out in front of my office building until I had finished. It couldn't be helped, you see - I simply could not bear to ...

How the Sheriff Was Won

The second story is How the Sheriff Was Won by Anne Gracie. I bought this Duets specifically for this story. I was so impressed with the Gracie historicals released this spring, that I was eagerly awaiting her next effort. I didn't like this story as much as I liked Gallant Waif and Tallie's Knight, ...

Tallie's Knight

Sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint which books are really getting a lot of buzz on the Internet. But when six AAR reviewers and editors (and publisher) independently buy two books by the same author over one weekend and four more rush out to get them in the next few days, well, that's buzz like I' ...
