Almost a Lady

Jane Feather is a longtime favorite of mine. Even when her books are not complete hits (Almost Innocent and the Duncan Sisters trilogy, there’s something about the strength of her writing that gets me every time. When she is on her game, she skillfully intertwines historical fact, intrigue, and ro ...

A Thousand Roses

I'm a firm believer that a book's length is not a sign of its quality, and that a talented writer can do wonders with just a few words. A Thousand Roses is a prime example. It's only 187 pages, about as short as they come. It's a traditional short Harlequin Romance to boot. Yet with expert character ...

The Snow Bride

It's not often that I come across a romance novel in which the hero and heroine don't spend enough time together - alone - in the book. Regrettably, The Snow Bride is one of those books. Jenna Campbell is a practical woman who just so happens to be in love with her boss. After six years on the jo ...

Bridal Favors

If Connie Brockway can do it, why can't Hollywood? Bridal Favors is, to put it simply, as close to a perfect romantic comedy as you are ever likely to find. It's funny, charming, unputdownable, and contains at its heart an utterly adorable romance between two equally adorable characters. And, as I ...

His Betrothed

Despite plot problems, character inconsistencies, and a carload of anachronistic language, I ended up liking His Betrothed more than I thought. The quote on the cover vaunts this as a riveting emotional read. While it's neither riveting nor emotional, it's a quick read with a hero and heroine who re ...

I Do, I Do, I Do

What a delightful book! I was charmed from the first sentence and I did not want this book to end at all. When I closed it, I wished for a sequel and I wanted that sequel immediately. I simply have to take I Do, I Do, I Do to the desert isle. In I Do, I Do, I Do, Maggie Osborne gives us three ...

Indiscretion

Indiscretion is a very lusty farce and an altogether wonderful romance. It's far more sexual than any of author Jillian Hunter's books of which I am aware. It also features a fairly daring plot structure, which reveals the hot and heavy past relationship between hero and heroine right at the start. ...

The Horsemaster's Daughter

Earlier this year I read and really liked The Charm School, and looked forward to its sequel. It's my pleasure to report that I was not disappointed, and I don't think you will be either. From start to finish, this story of a deeply wounded man and the woman who rescues his soul will pull you in and ...

Hummingbird

Hummingbird was LaVyrle Spencer's second novel, first published in 1982. It's a western historical romance featuring a bad boy hero and a prim spinster who bicker and fight and fight and bicker and finally become friends and lovers. Abigail MacKenzie is the town spinster. She is 33 and has sp ...

The Tiger's Bride

Retired Air Force Colonel Merline Lovelace is quite prolific, writing full-length suspense, contemporary, series, and historical romance. Until now, my favorite book by her was the medieval, Lady's Ransom. What struck me so much about that book was the sense of honor and responsibility the hero and ...
