McAllister's Crossing

Goshdurnit, I c’n shure appreciate a well-written dialect as much as th’ next gal. But I ain’t got no stomach fer readin’ an entire book with a heroine who ain’t got no book learnin’ an’ speaks accordin’ly. And the heroine of McAllister’s Crossing doesn’t know any high fallutin ...

Cimarron Rose

Nicole Foster's latest novel, Cimarron Rose is a novel that simply offers words on paper. If you aren't looking for interesting characters, originality, good writing, or believable plotlines, this is the book for you. Katlyn McLain is the daughter of the famous chanteuse, Pene ...

The Impossible Texan

Allie Shaw's first novel, The Impossible Texan, is an entertaining one, and if the romance is a little on the tame side, the political plot and likable characters ensure an enjoyable read. Marlena Maxwell is the daughter of a Texas senator. While she's forced to play the part of a Southern belle, ...

Indigo Moon has a very promising beginning that sadly devolves into a clichéd and melodramatic ending.

The Mackenzies: Zach

Several years ago, I read the debut Mackenzie book. Back then, romance series didn't seem to be quite as plentiful as they are now, and I was hoping this would be a new one for me to enjoy. While I didn't think it was horrible, I definitely wasn't interested in reading the rest of the series. But no ...

Twin of Fire and Twin of Ice

Jude Deveraux's Twin of Ice and Twin of Fire, originally published separately in 1985, have now been reissued in one volume. The two novels have parallel, simultaneous plots and work best read together. Twin of Ice describes Houston Chandler's relationship to her husband Kane Taggert; Twin of Fire t ...

The Lawman's Surrender

It took me awhile to drum up some interest in this book. Just as I was ready to dismiss this book altogether, it got interesting. Unfortunately, it didn't stay that way. The basic plot of The Lawman's Surrender is interesting enough, but the main characters are a little shallow. S ...

Outlaw's Bride

This book had definite peaks and valleys, the low points starting on page one, the high point in the middle, and a serious dip again near the end. It also suffered from a rather mean heroine. Had Mattie St. Clair been a judge in this story, I imagine her nickname would have been something like "the ...
