A Man With a Past

Mary Connealy is known for books filled with cowboys and humor. The synopsis for A Man With a Past promised the story of a man who had lost his memory, and I’m all about a good amnesia story. However, the beginning lags because the memory loss happens much later in the story than readers might exp ...

To Tempt a Rogue

A Retro Review originally published June 20, 1999 To Tempt a Rogue concludes the trilogy telling the story of the Delaney brothers. Your tolerance for this book will depend on whether you can put up with roguish and distrustful heroes, silly dialogue tags, big misunderstandings, and plots that rel ...

Bound for Eden

Début author?  Western romance?  Why yes, sign me up please. Bound for Eden is quite unlike most of the Westerns I've read, but once I got into it, I quite enjoyed myself. This novel has plenty of adventure, but pairs it with a light and humorous tone which makes for quite the wagon train romp. ...

Yukon Wedding

Don't be fooled by that cover. If you can get past the overdose of pink... um... something and what looks like a turtle shell on that poor heroine's head, you will be treated to a rather endearing story. This is a good marriage of convenience story. How good?  I'm not even a giant fan of this trope ...

Forbidden

Beverly Jenkins has been an autobuy for me ever since I was first introduced to her books as a reviewer. Since our prompt this month calls for reading an author with more than 1 book in our TBR, it was an easy call for me. I tend to accumulate books far more rapidly than I read them (I know, I know) ...
