One Dark Night

I rarely ever read the love scenes in romance novels. In fact, I usually skim them and resume reading where the story picks up. Why? I read romance novels for the romance, the events that bring two characters together, the ups and downs of their relationships, and - of course - the HEA. The "money s ...

A Question of Intent

For me, there are usual several telltale clues that a book just isn't working. One, it takes me a long time to read. I'm a pretty fast reader and can usually polish off a category romance in a day or so. Two, I keep misplacing and forgetting about it, then, I find it days later underneath a sofa cus ...

Off Limits

Military heroes are a staple in romance novels, much like cowboys, secret babies and virgin heroines. And like those time honored traditions of romance, most military heroes tend to be as fierce and commanding on the battlefield as they are in the bedroom. Anything less would be declared unmanly, un ...

Ride the Tiger

It took me over 10 years to read this book. Well, let me explain. It sat on my TBR shelf for 10 years before I finally decided to grab some of the oldest (and dustiest) books and read them. I wish I had read this book when I first bought it because I had cheated myself out of reading what is probabl ...

One Of These Nights

Let me start this review by saying that Justine Davis is one of my favorite authors. I absolutely love her Trinity Street West mini-series (and wish she would revisit it) and her books Out of the Dark and The Morning Side of Dawn are probably two of the best series romances novels I've ever read. ...

Buried Secrets

I hadn't planned on reading this book. I really wasn't interested in paranormal romances and had never read one before. While I'm a big fan of TV shows like the X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I figured a paranormal romance could never be that scary or creepy or even the littlest bit chilling, ...

Hunter's Pride

Lindsay McKenna is one of the authors who piqued my interest in series romance romance. Her Love and Glory series years ago made me realize how exciting, passionate and compelling series romance novels could be. I have enjoyed many hours of reading thanks to this author and her latest release is won ...

The Limits of Justice

For about a year, ex-reporter Benjamin Justice has been wallowing in the misery that is his life. Once a Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter, he was stripped of the award when it was discovered he fabricated the facts and details of the story. His personal life is in a shambles and he's got a couple of ...

In Graywolf's Hands

In Graywolf's Hands is a book I wanted to like. Featuring a strong and independent hero and a strong and independent heroine who remains strong throughout the book and doesn't fall apart or start yearning for babies and baking cookies when the hero walks by, it also has a compelling premise and a l ...

Cops and...Lovers?

One of the terms I've come across in my time reviewing novels for this site is the term TSTL, which means To Stupid To Live. This usually refers to a heroine whose dumb actions not only make no sense, but repeatedly get her and those around her into trouble. I've never met a heroine like that until ...
