Something Wonderful (#84 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on March 27, 2008 Like most romance readers, I have read many books by Judith McNaught and have loved several of them. When I think of the author, Paradise, Perfect, and A Kingdom of Dreams instantly pop into my mind as beloved favorites, yet I rarely t ...

Forged of Shadows

By
I love paranormal novels, but I must say that it’ll be nice when there aren’t quite so many paranormal series out there. Forged of Shadows is the second novel in the Marked Souls series. While it was entertaining enough and didn’t have much to detract from it, I wasn’t exactly impressed ei ...

Death Echo

By
I’m familiar with Lowell’s historical romance titles, but this is the first romantic suspense I’ve read from her. While there was nothing terribly wrong with Death Echo, I’m sorry to say that I was bored out of my mind. It’s the only book I’ve been reading and it took me two months to ...

Unspeakable

I read Griffin’s debut novel and thought that it showed great promise. Well, I think that she’s living up to that promise in Unspeakable, the second book in her Tracers series. With a strong-willed heroine, a sexy hero, and a gripping suspense plot, this book easily kept me turning the pages a ...

Wicked Intentions

Wicked Intentions is the first book in Hoyt’s new Maiden Lane series. Despite the author’s success, this is only the second book of hers I’ve read. And, while it will probably make me unpopular, I have to say that I wasn’t overly impressed with this one. It was good – certainly above avera ...

Insatiable

Another author has been seduced by creatures of the night. Insatiable is the first book of a new vampire series by Meg Cabot. While the premise of the story is rather familiar, and it’s getting a bit old to see more and more authors jump on the bandwagon, the book is well-written and I’m still ...

Queene of Light

I’ve been curious about Armintrout’s vampire series, so I was happy to read the first book of her newest series, Lightworld/Darkworld. The worldbuilding was well-done and interesting, but the character development and budding romance were sadly lacking. Had I felt more connected to the charact ...

Cape Storm

I picked Cape Storm to review, because I’d encountered Caine’s work in an anthology not long ago. I didn’t realize that I was getting the eighth book in the Weather Warden series, which would have been fine if it featured different couples, but this is a series that follows a central characte ...

Tempt Me at Twilight

Kleypas is a name that I’m always willing to try. I haven’t read too many of her books, but most of those I have are still sitting on my shelf. Tempt Me at Twilight is the first of the Hathaway stories I’ve encountered (though it’s the third in the series). While this story was good enoug ...

The Fire King

I haven’t yet caught up on all the Dirk and Steele stories, but I’m working on it. Liu has so far been very consistent at delivering interesting and well-done stories and The Fire King is no different. We again enter a world of unique abilities and this time we encounter a new kind of shapeshi ...
