Winter Fire

Fans of Jo Beverley's Malloren series will be hard pressed to resist Winter Fire. The Mallorens return in a supporting role as their cousin finds love and a long-standing feud resolves itself. Genova Smith finds herself spending Christmas as companion to the elderly Trayce sisters - gr ...

St. Raven

I've read more than my share of badly written, mundane historical romances featuring a handsome rake and a feisty, foot-stomping heroine. Most of the time, I sigh, toss the book and forget about it. St. Raven has a handsome rake for a hero and a heroine who is an adventuress at heart. But unlike wa ...

Hazard

Jo Beverley definitely had noble intentions when she created Anne and Race, the hero and heroine of Hazard. The heroine isn't feisty, and "rake" isn't a word that even remotely begins to describe the hero. Yep, they're different from the usual Regency fare, all right. Problem is, they're boring. ...

Hazard

I have read several pleasant historical romances this year, but none that gave me that hard-to-describe-but-I-know-it-when-I-feel-it reading rush. A few days ago, I reached into the TBR pile and picked up Jo Beverley's Hazard and began to read. It didn't take long for the rush to begin. I was deligh ...

The Devil's Heiress

After reading The Demon's Mistress I knew I wanted to read the next two stories in this series about three friends named George. In this book, we're introduced to a man in a desperate situation and the woman he believes is the solution to his problems. He soon realizes, however, that things are not ...

The Dragon's Bride

So many authors, so little time. I've been hearing for years that Jo Beverley's books were really good, but although I own some of them, The Dragon's Bride is the first one I've read. While everyone else was waiting for Rothgar, I was off reading other things. Now I'm contemplating a trip to the boo ...

The Dragon's Bride

I didn’t like The Dragon’s Bride, Jo Beverley’s latest, as much as I’d expected to based on her earlier books - Secrets of the Night is one of my favorite romances. Although I liked the hero, the heroine, the setting, and the plot, I was plagued by a nagging sense of disbelief as regards the ...

An Unwilling Bride

Okay, I'm almost totally converted to a Jo Beverley fan. I've read five of her books now, and although I didn't love the first three, Devilish is a keeper, and this book sends her to my glom list. An Unwilling Bride follows the evolution of an arranged marriage as it becomes a love match. Two stron ...

Devilish

Maybe it was the build-up. I know all of Jo Beverley's fans have been breathlessly waiting for Rothgar. I can't think of another book in the last few years whose arrival has been so eagerly anticipated. But while I enjoyed many aspects of Devilish, I've got to confess that it left me j ...

Devilish

This month we are reading Devilish, the much-awaited Rothgar book (on sale April 10th) from Jo Beverley. This is the fifth book in the Malloren series and gives us the love story of the Marquess of Rothgar (Beowulf Malloren) and Diana, Countess of Arrandale. Rothgar was first introduced in My Lady N ...
