Books by Lorraine Heath

C-
In Bed with the Devil

This is, sadly, another one of those books I forced myself to read. Saying that, I must add that the last third of the story saved it from a much lower grade. While the plot deals with the meaty issues of spousal abuse and childhood poverty and crime, the characters were uninspiring and the situatio ...

Just Wicked Enough

Just Wicked Enough starts with an unusual and riveting scene, but unfortunately, the rest of the book does not live up to its initial promise. We've all read romances where the aristocratic hero bemoans the fact that he has to figuratively "auction" himself and his title in marriage ...

A Duke of Her Own

I look forward to each new book by Lorraine Heath, as several of her Texas-set historicals are on my keeper shelf. Unfortunately in A Duke of Her Own, Heath fell short for me with a book that, while enjoyable, was completely predictable - and a plot that has been used too often before. In fact, th ...

A
Always To Remember

I can count on one hand the number of romance novels that have ever moved me to tears. Lorraine Heath's classic Always to Remember sits at the top of that elite list, head and shoulders above the rest. In the ten years since its initial publication, it has only gained power, as its themes seem even ...

Promise Me Forever

I like many different tones to my historicals. Sometimes I want a big, meaty epic, other times I just want to laugh, and sometimes I just want something that is beautifully emotional. Heath's latest release definitely fits the bill for that last category. While this book has the occasional ey ...

A Matter of Temptation

A Matter of Temptation is the heartrending story of one man's reemergence into life after enduring years of unbelievable cruelty at the hands of his brother. While the heroine does play a part in the redemption of his tortured soul, she primarily acts as mere romantic window dressing in the life of ...

As An Earl Desires

This is a book that didn’t start out very well, but got better and better as it went along. I found the opening chapters slow, and the heroine isn’t a type of character that I care for. But as I say, the book just kept getting better. I’m quite happy that Heath is still writing - even if sh ...

An Invitation to Seduction

Kitty Robertson, the daughter abandoned by Jessye from Never Love a Cowboy, is the heroine of An Invitation To Seduction and, though Jessye is not exactly in the book, fans will surely be interested in reading about Kitty's life as an American heiress in Victorian England. Although the book feature ...

Smooth Talkin' Stranger

Lorraine Heath's Smooth Talkin' Stranger is a slow, intimate character piece. It's a very familiar, very predictable story, and in many ways it feels like nothing more than a pretty good Harlequin Superromance. But Heath's gentle storytelling and memorable character moments make it a moving experi ...

Hard Lovin' Man

Last year I discovered Lorraine Heath's books and she immediately went on my auto-buy list. She's written some of my favorite stories, so when I started to hear a lot positive buzz for Hard Lovin' Man I really looked forward to reading it. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations, let alon ...
