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 ...

The Rake's Retreat is a lively romp made special by two wonderfully matched and humorous main characters, plus a couple of secondary characters who are almost as entertaining. Lovely Lovelace Wellesley, leading lady of her parents' theatre troupe, Wellesley's Wandering Minstrels, wanders where ...

The Beloved One

I so enjoyed reading The Beloved One; there were so many things about that I just loved. I loved the Cinderella storyline where we first encounter the heroine, Amy Leighton, literally in the ashes.

The Beloved One

The Beloved One is one of those books that I could hardly make myself put down. You know how it is; you are supposed to eat and sleep now and then, but you'd much rather be reading! When I have that feeling, I know I have a desert isle keeper on my hands. Practically perfect from start to finish, Th ...

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 ...

Calypso Magic

Calypso Magic is a truly incredible book chock full of suspense and spice and hilarity. The characters are outrageously witty and the pacing is so fast you can't bear to put the book down until you reach the last page - and then you're so disappointed it's all over. Coulter is an absolute master at ...

With This Ring

Since Mary Balogh is no longer going to write traditional regency novels, Carla Kelly is now the regency author whose books I am going to prowl the stores for. Whenever I hear anyone sat that romance novels are nothing but tripe, I feel like giving them a copy of With This Ring and saying, "Read thi ...
