With the Lights On

Jackie Ashenden is great at writing hot sex scenes, and you’ll find those aplenty in With the Lights On. Unfortunately even a sexy romance needs a plot, and with too much narration and too little momentum, With the Lights On is a low-watt bulb. Under the name Honey, Maggie makes a living workin ...

Dearest Rogue

While I’ve enjoyed all the books in Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series, Dearest Rogue has been the one I’ve most eagerly anticipated. In fact, it’s one of my most highly anticipated books of 2015. Perhaps that’s a little unusual, considering this is the eighth book in a long-running serie ...

What a Lady Most Desires

When a book has a shirtless guy with flowing hair on the cover, I know it's a romance, but I also can't quite help the urge to pass it by. The modern, giant-chested heroes who apparently hate shirts just don't do much for me. And yet it would be a real shame to miss What a Lady Most Desires. It's ac ...

What a Scoundrel Wants

I have loved Robin Hood books from a variety of authors ranging from Parke Godwin to Marsha Canham, and I am so happy to see a book that sits well alongside them. While the publisher, for reasons unknown, elected to punish this month's debut author with a stupid title and a hideous cover (you can ac ...

Tapestry

As a long time romance reader, sometimes I find myself forgetting why I love this genre so much. At times titles, plots, and characters all blend together until all I can say is "love prevails in the end". But at other times I read a book that refreshingly, uniquely, and unequivocally reminds me jus ...

The Parfit Knight

The Parfit Knight by Stella Riley (writing as Juliet Blyth) is an old favorite. Rereading it for this review, I was delighted to find it as charming as I did twenty years ago when it was published. In the prologue, the author describes an accident: a girl plays catch with her brother in a country la ...
