What can I say about Great Caesar's Ghost? Just when I was loathing it with all my heart, something would happen that I really liked. Just when I had decided it had gotten pretty good, something would happen that would make me want to scream with irritation. Irritation won out in the end. The ...

The Night Drifter

The Night Drifter is one of the most unique romance novels I have ever stumbled across. It's a story of man who falls in love with a woman's soul before he falls in lust with her body. It's also a story of a woman who falls in love with a man she can't touch. Yes, it's a bit corny in places, but if ...

Uncertain Magic

Uncertain Magic was first published in 1987 and is currently in its seventh printing. This was the first Laura Kinsale book I ever read so I didn't know what to expect. I just pulled it off of Borders' romance shelf because of its pretty cover. What a wonderful surprise to discover this author on a ...

The Magician's Lover

This is a road romance where the magician hero, the self-reliant heroine, and their jinni companion travel from Baghdad to England in 1138. Given the setting and the characters, it could have been a spicy and intriguing read. I admit I may be a bit jaded, but throwing in every conceivable plot devic ...

Pagan Desires

Pagan Desires is a romance that sets out bravely, but keeps bogging itself down at every turn. This is a pity, because this is a book featuring a Byzantine heroine and which is set entirely in the Middle East, something which you don't run across everyday. However, much I like unorthodox settings, I ...

Enchanted Christmas

Have you been having trouble sleeping? Do you adore heroes who wallow in self-pity? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Enchanted Christmas could be the book for you.

The Bride Finder

It was a dark and stormy book. That phrase kept running through my mind when I read The Bride Finder, Susan Carroll's new paranormal romance. The Bride Finder comes with glowing recommendations from seven romance writers. Is it as good as the cover blurbs? No - it's a fair book, but I was not bowled ...
