Someone to Watch Over Me

Well, it underwent a title change, and its publication was delayed, postponed, delayed. Meanwhile, rumors flew across the Internet: it was a contemporary - no, it was a time-travel - no, it was an historical - then it was a time-travel contemporary romantic suspense. Some readers lost patience, but ...

She Went All The Way

If you're looking for a book to jump-start your reading during these gray January days, look no further. She Went All the Way is a fast, funny, sexy, romantic ride. I'll admit right off the bat that I'm a sucker for those Hollywood romances. And, even though I've polished off quite a few of them ...

River Road

River Road is the name of a trashy, outrageous nighttime soap opera whose bad girl is played by a beautiful actress named Julia Summers. (I’m guessing that the name of her character, Amanda, is a tribute to my own favorite trashy nighttime soap, Melrose Place.) Julia has just achieved the dream of ...

Breathing Room

Remember all those Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn movies? Charismatic characters speaking intelligent, witty, funny lines? Of if you can't remember that far back and haven't seen the videos, maybe you've caught a recent episode of West Wing. In both cases just about every conversation sparkles and ...

If You Want Me

At a glance, Kayla Perrin's first offering from Harper Torch books, If You Want Me, seems to have all the right ingredients for a great romance novel: a caring and protective hero, an ugly duckling heroine who's finally come home a star, and a touch of suspense when someone seems to be stalking her. ...

Again

Again was the first book I read by Kathleen Gilles Seidel. It was the winner of the RITA award for best Contemporary Single Title for 1995. I enjoyed it so much that I bought her entire backlist. Again combines a wonderfully humorous concept with a poignant love story. I laughed quite a bit at the a ...

Heart Throb

Okay, I have to eat a little crow. When I first read the synopsis of HeartThrob and saw the bright pink cover, I really thought it looked like a mainstream, Jackie Collins-type novel, even though I knew the writing would be better than that. I was wrong, and I should have known better. I've read Suz ...

Wild Irish Rose

I've long been an admirer of the writing of Lisa Ann Verge. Her Heaven in his Arms is one of my favorite Road Romances. So I keenly anticipated reading her latest release, Wild Irish Rose, which is another Road Romance. And while it took me awhile to appreciate this book, something unusual and very ...
