Beware of Virtuous Women

I pride myself on keeping pretty up to date on what’s forthcoming in all the genres I like to read, yet somehow I missed a new series by a favorite author. Missing new books by an author you like is a very bad thing. But once you discover the books, well, that's like found money. Now there are bo ...

High Heels and Homicide

I had waited for more than a year for the fourth book in what heretofore had been Kasey Michaels' charming Maggie series. Unfortunately, High Heels and Homicide was not worth the wait...at all. Michaels introduced Maggie Kelly in Maggie Needs an Alibi as a failed romance writer who reinvented her ...

A Gentleman by Any Other Name

So, you thought there was a dearth of Regency spies, smugglers, and rogues (only lovable ones, of course)? Well, Kasey Michaels has plenty of them to offer here. Her writing is, as always, very well done. However, even her accomplished style is not enough to rescue this tale from cliches and ...

C
Shall We Dance?

This novel has at its center a very interesting and little mentioned event in English Regency Romanceland. King George III is dead and Prinny has declared a year of mourning at the end of which he will be crowned King George IV. He plans to use that year to obtain a divorce from his despised wife, ...

The Butler Did It

For those of you who have fond memories of Kasey Michaels's traditional Regencies (and, LLB, this is for you), you have a real treat in store. In The Butler Did It, Ms. Michaels combines her delightfully over-the-top style and her finely honed sense of the absurd to deliver a fun and frolicsome Rege ...

Maggie By The Book

It's hard to tell exactly where Kasey Michaels is having more fun in this second entry in her Maggie series: Shining a spotlight on just how annoying a a suddenly-come-to-life Regency hero might be or skewering the world of romance writing, publishing, and - dare I say it? - online romance reviewing ...

B
Be My Baby Tonight

Kasey Michaels' Be My Baby Tonight was a fun surprise. I have read and enjoyed her traditional Regency Romances, but had never read one of her contemporary releases. So I requested to review this book without knowing much about it. I soon realized two things: the hero is a baseball player and the sp ...

B
Maggie Needs An Alibi

Take some Chick Lit, add a touch of fantasy, throw in a mystery, a bit of satire and a tiny hint of romance. You have Maggie Needs An Alibi, a very funny book that looks like the beginning of a series. It's one I plan to follow. Maggie Kelly was the author of mid-list romances. Her numbers were not ...
