To Rescue a Rogue

The Company of Rogues is finally complete. I’ve been waiting for Dare’s story for a while, along with every other fan of this series, I’m sure. Dare lived up to my expectations completely, although I had to warm up to his heroine, partly because she’s very young. Mara does mature (thankfully ...

The Saint

Is that you, Santy Claus? No, it sure isn't. Forget everything you know about Santa Claus because I have news for you, he sure isn't a right jolly old elf.

A Model Spy

The last few months I've bought several Silhouette Bombshells, none of which held my attention past the initial chapters, all of which went unfinished.

He Loves Lucy

The reality TV show craze has passed me by, I have to admit, and so I opened this book warily. A woman with self-esteem issues wants to publish her body-fat index on the Internet? She wants to get weighed on live TV? But then the hero strolled in, and oh my, he melted more than pounds. For you, Theo ...

Guilty Secrets

It's very challenging to write a category novel with serious depth to it since the rules of the format are strict and the page allotment low. Challenges notwithstanding, several authors, including Virginia Kantra, manage to do a wonderful job of bringing their series titles to life. While Kantra's l ...

Still Life with Murder

I am not a very big mystery reader, mostly because the journey is more important to me than the end result. But Still Life with Murder, the first of a new historical mystery series by romance author Patricia Ryan, managed to engage me as a mystery and as a character study. The mystery unfolds as the ...

A Piece of Heaven

I couldn't wait to get my hands on Barbara Samuel's A Piece of Heaven. She is a wonderfully talented writer who excels in being able to build a story in such a way that you can see the atmosphere and feel her characters' emotions. When I read her first hardback, No Place Like Home, I spent two days ...
