Vice

(originally reviewed on November 11, 1999) I have read all of Jane Feather's books from the '90s and some from the '80s. This book is her finest because she goes into her material with a depth and complexity her other books lack. While all of her books are entertaining, this one is not only enterta ...

A Much Younger Man

A Much Younger Man is, as the title would suggest a May/December romance, and it’s the first book in Z.A. Maxfield’s Men of St. Nacho’s series – a spin off of her earlier books set in the small California coastal town of St. Ingacio, (called St. Nacho’s by the locals).  It does feature so ...

Just a Heartbeat Away

I haven't read too many début stories this year, but I heard good chatter on social media about Cara Bastone's Just a Heartbeat Away, the first full length novel in her Forever Yours series. (Technically her first book is a prequel novella to the series, When We First Met, but this is her first ful ...

Counterpoint

Narrated by Greg Boudreaux Counterpoint, book two in Anna Zabo’s trilogy about rock group Twisted Wishes, focuses on the band’s lead guitarist, Domino Grinder, a mouthy, tatted-up, leather-clad Rock god who struts about the stage shirtless, oozing sex appeal and attitude.  Domino may be the ...

Inked With a Kiss

Inked with a Kiss is a wonderful, sweet and chemistry-laden tale about two ordinary women falling in love under the ordinary pressures of real life. Thirty-seven-year-old Jamie Winston is a tattoo artist and shop manager with a dysfunctional family – a twelve-year-old-daughter, Riley, whom she ...

Powder & Pavlova

I read and enjoyed a couple of books by Jay Hogan last year, so I was more than happy to jump into Powder & Pavlova, the first book in her Southern Lights series of m/m romances set in and around Queenstown, New Zealand.  This is a May/December story featuring a pair of engaging and well-rounde ...

Fix Her Up

Do NOT judge Tessa Bailey’s superbly steamy rom-com Fix Her Up by its cover image of a cartoon couple demurely kissing. I wouldn’t normally read a novel that gives off a cutesy vibe, but, given Bailey’s reputation as a prolific bestselling romance author, and the sexy series title (Hot and Ham ...

What I Did for a Duke

Incredible as it may seem (and it still does – to me!) the Pennyroyal Green series is one that I haven’t yet completed.  I’ve read the last three or four books but not the earlier ones, so I decided to pick up one of them for September’s TBR prompt to read an historical romance.  What I Di ...

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 ...

What I Did for a Duke

Genevieve Eversea, of Pennyroyal Green, has been in love with Lord Harry Osborne for three years. Harry is all that Genevieve wants in a man — he’s funny, handsome, shares her knowledge and love of Italian art, and makes her smile every time she sees him. She is certain they make the perfect cou ...
