Every Move She Makes

The kids were outside yesterday. It was quiet in the house and I wanted to spend a few of hours pleasantly passing some time, so I picked up Beverly Barton's Every Move She Makes. It wasn't a story I'd never read before; it was neither incredibly good nor incredibly bad. It was just an ordinary stor ...

After Dark

Do I like a bad boy? In real life - no way, but in fiction yes, yes, a thousand times yes! Beverly Barton says in the afterward to this book, that the redeemable bad boy is one of her favorite characters. She has done some really good ones in her Silhouette titles and Johnny Mack Cahill in After D ...

Her Secret Weapon

You'd think that a mini-series involving government agents, and sporting a title The Year of Loving Dangerously would have lots of action, wouldn't you?

Roarke's Wife

O.K., I like alpha males. No, I love alpha males. I am just crazy about a big, rugged, masculine man who is a real guy, and proud of it. What I don't like is that so many of the alpha males in romance novels have a streak of either cruelty or arrogance, two traits that I despise. S ...

A Child of Her Own

I enjoyed Beverly Barton's Protectors series and thought I'd try one of her stand-alone books, so I read A Child of Her Own. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I was fully prepared to give it a 4 rating until just before the ending when one scene jarred me out of the mood and caused the book to drop a ...
