A Wife Worth Investing in

I know when I pick up a book by Marguerite Kaye that it’s going to be something different and A Wife Worth Investing In - the second book in her Penniless Brides of Convenience Series – is no exception.  It can be read as a stand-alone but I know I am definitely going to go back and read book o ...

One Christmas Knight

A DIKlassic originally published on February 7, 1998 Happy holidays to all! We all dream at one time or another of that handsome knight riding in on a white charger and rescuing us, but did you know that there really are modern day knights out there, just ready to rescue that damsel in distress? ...

Naked Pursuit

Do you like wild and goofy set-ups? Naked Pursuit has that in spades. At times it seems to work, but sometimes the silliness of it just gets to be too much. This romance is definitely original, but it probably won't work for everyone. So, where does med student Stella Holbrook meet the ...

A Perfect Compromise

Just as we often complain about wallpaper historical romances, I’ve come to realize there are also wallpaper “sports” romances featuring heroes whose careers could be switched from “star quarterback” to “rock star” or “journalist” with no impact. That’s not the case in Anna Sugde ...

Before he died, Tommy asked Levi to look out for Tommy’s wife, Val, and their girls, so Levi goes home to Whispering Pines, New Mexico, to fulfill his promise.

Into the Storm

After having a chance to speak with several Harlequin Heartwarming authors at RWA last year, I've been curious to try some of the books in this line. There have been discussions in Rom-land, both online and off, about the market for non-inspy books with a lower sensuality rating. There's definitely ...

Standoff at Christmas

When I'm reading up on inspirational romance, Margaret Daley's name comes up again and again with regard to romantic suspense. I've seen her name on many, many Love Inspired covers, so I got curious and picked up Standoff at Christmas. The verdict? This one is totally worth your time. ...

Person of Interest

Most of the military suspense I've read centers on special ops and other actions out in the field. However, living near a number of military installations and knowing a number of folks in various branches of military service, some of the more interesting stories I hear involve happenings on base. So ...

Pursued by the Rogue

I think we can all agree that Romlandia abounds with rogues. Indeed, they appear nearly as plentiful as dukes. Sometimes "rogue" is code for what seems to be the Regency version of a frat boy, but in other cases, the word "rogue" seems to be code for, "The hero is a really nice guy but I have to use ...

No Ordinary Home

I’ll give the author credit for taking risks. The lead heroine – because yes, there’s a strong secondary romance – has been homeless and on the run for the last six years. This isn’t a glossed over homelessness, she genuinely suffers the afflictions one would expect from living that type o ...
