Rocky Mountain Devil

Rocky Mountain Devil is book number ten in the Six Pack Ranch series.  Luckily, for those who haven’t yet discovered this Canadian Rocky Mountain set series, each book is easily read as a standalone without a broad continuing story arc (other than some weddings and babies  for previously profile ...

In the Barren Ground

Loreth Anne White’s latest book is set in the Barren Lands, a vast swath of sparsely inhabited region in northern Canada. While I liked the unique setting and found the central mystery well-done, the romance portion of the book didn’t really work for me. In the Barren Ground is an atmospheric th ...

Stranded With Her Rescuer

Stranded With Her Rescuer is what some might call a problem book. On the one hand, it's well written and the characters click together very well. However, their love story relies on a plot device that I suspect might turn off more than a few readers. If you can handle how Will and Kitty come togethe ...

Canadian Wolf

I’m a huge fan of paranormals, especially when you mix in some romantic suspense. My gateway drug to romance was urban fantasy, after all, and the best urban fantasy novels, and the best romance novels, mix a little bit of everything together to make something new. They make use of the tropes with ...

Beautiful Criminal

Beautiful Criminal by Shady Grace is a short erotica story about a young man who crash lands his plane in the Canadian Rockies. I found myself wishing it had been longer as I would have enjoyed spending more time with these characters. Mima Etu lives a quiet life in the rugged Rockies. She hunts ...

Where Trust Lies

This is the second in the authors’ Return to the Canadian West series. Like the first book in the series, it is low on romance and rich in the drama of daily life. I think that would have worked better if the book had not also had the tendency to veer towards a travelogue. The fairly high grade fo ...

A Nice Girl Like You

A Nice Girl Like You is a rich, densely-written story about two likeable characters. It's what I always hope for when I pick up a series book but all too rarely find. Samantha (Sam) Jagger, a freelance journalist in Toronto, meets acclaimed war photographer Ben Harris after responding to a newspape ...

Kiss and Make Up

Divorced Rand Waddell persuades his ex-wife Kat to let him move into the basement apartment of their British Columbia house to be their children’s new nanny. He wants to prove he’s changed and win back his family; she’s skeptical and wants to avoid raising false hopes in their two kids. If it ...

High Seduction

The Adrenaline Search and Rescue series is aptly named. Not only does the romance sizzle, but the action sequences provide plenty of heart pounding suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure through the Canadian Rockies. Erin Tate is a helicopter pilot for Lifeline, an elite search and rescue ...

Where Courage Calls

Back in my middle school and high school years Janette Oke was one of my favorite authors. Her books about the Canadian West contained fabulous characters, sweet romances and a subtle message of the Christian faith that transcended denominations and went straight to the heart. When I heard she was e ...
