Song from the Sea

Normally, a book like this would be way too sweet for me. I'm not that sentimental, but I can get all teary-eyed over a basket of puppies, and Song From The Sea was the book equivalent of a big-eyed puppy. Callista Melbourne's father has promised her to Harold Carlyle, the son of a fri ...

A Kiss to Remember

Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are fairy-tale stories that have been used in countless romance novels. While I love those tales and never tire of them, it was a most pleasant surprise to find Teresa Medeiros dusting off Sleeping Beauty for her delightfully funny and sometimes poignant new book, ...

The Morning After

I admit, once in a while, like, let’s say, when I’ve had it with my day job, I dive into my little fantasy of having some sexy, mysterious man take me away to a deserted island, where I am surrounded by luxury and don’t have to deal with petty office politics. After reading this book, however, ...

You Were On My Mind

I usually run far, far away from baby and amnesia stories. So you'd think I'd hate You Were On My Mind, Margot Early's first novel in her Midwives series. It features a midwife who has lost all but the last ten years of her life, and who also appears to be about ten months pregnant on the book's cov ...

Someone to Watch Over Me

I've read plenty of historicals with Bow Street Runners before, but Lisa Kleypas' upcoming release, Someone to Watch Over Me, is the first I've read with a Runner as the hero.

Someone to Watch Over Me

There was a lot I liked about Lisa Kleypas's new historical romance Someone To Watch Over Me starting with the hero's profession. He was a Bow Street Runner. These were the predecessors of the bobbies. The Bow Street Runners were more like detectives than real policemen, and they worked on a fee and ...

Some Enchanted Season

I have enjoyed Marilyn Pappano's series romances very much. She is a wonderful storyteller with a knack for developing characters you truly care about and who remain with you after you close the book. Her mainstream romances have those same qualities of emotional intensity and memorable characters t ...

Taming the Wolf

Seven. What makes an ordinary number like seven so, well, magical? The seventh son of a seventh son was enchanted. Seven brothers wed seven brides. Seven magnificent men fought for the right. And, a lost princess was given sanctuary by seven diminutive miners. Bonded in some way - often as brothers ...

Denim and Lace

Denim and Lace is a cut above the hackneyed western romances that seem to be cropping up lately. Although the author offers up the traditional feisty, red-haired heroine and an equally traditional hard-bitten, tortured hero, she injects enough humanity into them that they keep the reader interested. ...
