Tempting Evil

Despite marketing efforts (the cover for the second book in this series touts the author as "the new star of paranormal romance"), I wouldn’t classify Tempting Evil as a paranormal romance. I would place it firmly in the Urban Fantasy section of your local library. That’s not to say there isn’ ...

Boy Down Under

I didn’t know what exactly to expect from Boy Down Under, but I’m sure it’s not what it turned out to be – a quirky, mysterious paranormal romance between the new kid in town and a boy who can whisk her away for rendezvous in places unknown. Rowena “Ro” Maven has just moved ...

Her Galahad

In some ways, Her Galahad is like no book I've read before. I've only read a handful of books set in Australia, and none of them featured a hero of aboriginal descent as this one does. That's why the book caught my eye in the first place. On the other hand, it features time-worn devices I've seen ag ...

The Enemy's Daughter

Well, well, well - so Simon the terrorist in The Year of Loving Dangerously mini-series didn't just spring up as a full blown baddie out of nowhere. About 30 odd years ago, Simon was known as Art Meldrum. He lived in Australia, married and had a daughter, Lise Meldrum. Art/Simon's wife died when Lis ...

September Moon

I haven't read too many historical romances that take place in Australia. At first, I thought September Moon was going to be just like those American Historicals that take place on the frontier - lots of hardship, wildness and danger. It is. And yet, it is different. Ms. Proctor brings all the stran ...

Pearl Cove

Pearl Cove is the first Elizabeth Lowell book I've read, but it certainly won't be my last. From the first page, I was drawn into a suspenseful plot, fascinating information about pearls and the pearl industry, and most of all, the larger-than-life characters of the Donovan family. Ten years ago, ...

Beautiful Lies

After a slow start Beautiful Lies picks up speed and draws the reader into a complex and engrossing tale involving two families and the Pearl of Great Price that has haunted and cursed them for generations. Most of the book takes place in contemporary San Francisco and the Australian O ...
