Klondike Doctor

Lovers of Western/Frontier romances sure have there work cut out for them. If you are like me and have a strong affection for this subgenre, you know the pickings are mighty slim. Thankfully, Kate Bridges seems to know a thing or two about a good historic romance not set in 19th century England. Eve ...

Hired By The Cowboy

Lovers of sweet romances will take Hired By The Cowboy to their hearts. It’s a marriage of convenience story set in Canada and it’s sweet, really sweet and endearing as a basket of fluffy kittens. I was all set to get cynical about it, but my attitude didn’t last the first chapter. Alex ...

Broken

Although I have enjoyed the previous books in the Women of the Otherworld series, this one was definitely not my favorite. It was nice to see Elena and Clay featured again, but I felt that they spent most of the book running in circles, chasing their tails (pun intended). For those that aren ...

Champagne Rules

With the market for erotic romance exploding, Kensington is looking to expand its share with its new Aphrodisia imprint. I have to admit, many of the recent Bravas I've read have struck me as tepid and mechanical, so I was interested to see what Aphrodisia had to offer. If Susan Lyons's Champagne Ru ...

The Rogue's Return

The newest entry in Jo Beverley's Company of Rogues series features The Missing Rogue, Simon St. Bride who, when mentioned at all in previous books, has simply been "in Canada." In The Rogue's Return we finally learn what Simon has been doing all this time. While Simon's family are tra ...

The Bachelor

The Bachelor is set in Calgary, Alberta in 1893, and the hero is a Mountie. The story is a good one and so are the characters, but it suffered from "Harlequin Historical" compression - there were lots of interesting points that were hurried over. If only it could have been longer! The Royal C ...

A Rose At Midnight

A Rose at Midnight is the guiltiest pleasure I've had from a book in some time. It's melodramatic, fairly cheesy, and almost completely over-the-top. For readers with a taste for this kind of thing, it's sort of fun for the same reasons. The book's not really good in the conventional sense, but I’ ...

Day of Fire

The futuristic saga of 2176 begun in The Legend of Banzai Maguire continues in Kathleen Nance's Day of Fire. This time, the series voyages to a future version of Canada for another high-tech SF thriller. In 2176, Tri-Canada is completely cut off from the rest of the world, quarantined ever since ...

The Engagement

Dr. Virginia Waters was sure she was marrying the wrong brother! She wanted quiet, safe Andrew, but he had jilted her after a 6 year engagement. Andrew's brother, Inspector Zack Bullock, was a Mountie looking for a wife. A wife who would be busy with her own life and leave him alone to pursue his ca ...

The Surgeon

I always love to see historical romances set in times and places I don't encounter as often those set in, for example, Regency England or the American West. Therefore, I was excited about reading a novel set among the Mounties in late 19th century Alberta. Sarah O'Neill travels all the way fr ...
