A Duke by Default

I love a good meet cute/meet crazy and Alyssa Cole offers up a delectable new favorite in her latest novel, A Duke by Default. Funny, poignant and sweet this is a truly fantastic summer read. This is book two of the Reluctant Royals series by this author but you don’t have to read the first boo ...

Mr. Hotshot CEO

Jackie Lau is a Canadian author writing diverse romantic comedy, something she definitely achieved in her first Kwan Sisters novel, Grumpy Fake Boyfriend. I thoroughly enjoyed that story about the romance that results when an introverted male science fiction writer does a friend's sister a favor by ...

Scoring the Player's Baby

The first romance I read by Naima Simone was Beauty and the Bachelor, the start of her Bachelor Auction series in August of 2015. I loved it, and I immediately put the author on my 'watch' list, to make sure I wouldn't miss any of her future releases. Since then she's written a bodyguard romantic su ...

Ms. Diamond's Brooks Family series is about an extremely wealthy African American exten ...

Until I'm Yours

Until I’m Yours by Kennedy Ryan was my top read in 2016, a difficult feat to achieve when you consider that I read over 400 books that year. But a review for it has never been posted at All About Romance, so I’ve taken the liberty of doing so now. It’s the fourth book in The Bennett series whi ...

Pretending He's Mine

Acting on Impulse by Mia Sosa was one of my favorite reads in 2017, so it was pretty much guaranteed that I’d want to pick up the next book in the Love on Cue series. The characters in Pretending He’s Mine were introduced in that first book and there was already a hint of a little ‘something-s ...
