Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen

The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen is one of those shaggy dog books that everyone’s written and thought about sending out.  The kind of drawer-fic where you and Jane Austen are super best friends and you and your internet pal are totally going to save the world with her help; also the hot p ...

So Wild a Dream

Reading Beautiful Wreck in 2014, I was blown away by Larissa Brown’s dreamlike writing style and the romance within. When I read the first part of the follow-up in 2016, I enjoyed the story but wasn’t left with that lovely breathless feeling I craved. Luckily, while I wasn’t floating weightles ...

Time After Time

Dizzying time loops, fascinating human stories, and a really lovely romance captivate in Lisa Grunwald’s Time After Time.  To tell the reader too much about its plot is to reveal too much about its central mystery; this is the kind of book that requires the retention of a little of the element of ...

What the Wind Knows

Time travel romances aren't always my cup of tea – strange as it may seem, Outlander was just okay for me. However, when I learned that Amy Harmon, who happens to be one of my very favorite authors, was coming out with a new novel that happened to feature time travel, I knew I had to read it. A ...

Outlander

Calling Outlander a time travel romance is like calling a Dove Bar ice cream on a stick. Mere labels can't possibly prepare you for the totally engrossing and sensual experience of either one. If you are ready for 850 pages packed with action, sex, life and death, then take the plunge. But then be p ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 8, 1997 Back when A Knight in Shining Armor first came out in hardcover, I bought it, read it, loved it, and immediately started reading it again. I was at a friend's house sitting by her pool one afternoon and was pronounced "anti-social" becaus ...

Sadie's Highlander

Maeve Greyson opens up her nicely written but poorly plotted new series of time travel romances with Sadie’s Highlander, the first in what promises to be a series of stories about the MacDara clan – a tribe of Scottish brothers who can trace their bloodlines back to the ancient Druids, and who a ...

So Wild a Dream

Two years ago, I declared Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck was one of the Best Books of 2014. Last year, we raved about her novella, Tress. And I was so excited to read So Wild A Dream, set in the same world as Beautiful Wreck, that when I got the chance to review it, I was literally breathless. Ma ...

A Love Beyond Forever

A Love Beyond Forever is rather a mixed bag. At times it made for good reading, but when the romance turned into "the awakening of a young witch," I wondered where the entertainment had gone. Kristy Sinclair, an up-and-coming, modern, young career woman, is thrown back through time wit ...

A Murder in Time

I chose to review A Murder in Time hoping for a fresh take on one of my favorite genres. Instead, what I got was an uninspired story with clichéd plotting and tired character tropes. This is a book that does not work on any level - whether you approach it as a straightforward mystery or as a fish-o ...
