Welcome To Temptation (#20 on our Top 100 list)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on March 15, 2000 I'd never read a book by Jennifer Crusie, and I'm always nervous about picking up a book by an author everyone loves. In this case, I need not have worried. Her new hardcover, Welcome To Temptation, is sexy, intelligent, unexpectedly mo ...

Zero Hour

I don't know about you, but some of my favourite authors are the ones who have a particular genre or style and tend to stick with it. Sure, there's always the risk of one day waking up bored with it all, but often it's easy and delightful to come back to what you love and get exactly what you want o ...

Claiming Bailey

Susan Stoker has a few romantic suspense novels under her belt but Claiming Bailey is the first of hers that I've read. It's the third story in her Ace Security series, about a group of brothers who run a security company in Castle Rock, Colorado with the aim of aiding battered women and children. L ...

I've read a handful from a few different series and they've all been exciting, sexy and entertaining romances. In The Pretender, the third book of the Games People Play series, a murd ...

Exploited

Exploited, the first book in A. Meredith Walters’ two-part Zero Day romance serial, features a topical premise that is largely wasted amidst a sea of poorly-written characters and improbable scenarios. After weeks of putting the book down and forcing myself to pick it back up again, I cannot recom ...

Catalyst

I’ve become a huge fan of Rachel Grant’s particular blend of complex, steamy and intricately plotted romantic suspense novels over the past year or so, and have been eagerly awaiting the release of Catalyst, the second book in her Flashpoint series.  Like the previous book, Tinderbox, Catalyst ...

Dream Man (#51 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 16, 1998 So, I'm reading Dream Man, and my husband idly says to me, "Say, how's your book?" With cool deliberation, I lift a brow and raise my glassy and dilated gaze, and say in a voice both low and menacing, "Go away. Take the kids to your ...

Dissident

My fellow reviewer, Kristen, has raved about Cecilia London’s Bellator Saga - and given that I like a nice, juicy political thriller, I decided pretty much at the beginning of the year that Dissident, the first book in the series would be my recommended read this year. I’ll start out by sayin ...
