Barely Breathing

Pamela Clare's Barely Breathing is the first novel in her new series Colorado High Country. As the highly successful author of the I-Team romantic suspense novels, she's become synonymous with high octane, action packed, sexy stories. This book takes a step back from all that action, but delivers ...

This Gun for Hire

The vast majority of historical romances that I read are set in Regency England…because the vast majority of historical romances that are written are set in Regency England. However, my two favorite time/place settings are Medieval Europe and American Westerns. It is just very hard to find any rec ...

Silver Sparks

I'm in the middle of the first snow-less December I have had in years and loving every minute of it. While I am normally a fan of the downy white flakes, the ice that accompanies them and clings to every hard surface - stairs, paths and roads - is not my friend. I don't mind reading about it, though ...

The Borrowed Bride

The Borrowed Bride by Elizabeth Lane is a romance set in rural Colorado in 1899. While I liked the setting, and was not put off by the love triangle of a woman who has to choose between two brothers (a no-no for a number of readers), ultimately the romance failed to convince me. Quint ...

Holding the Baby

I never thought someone might attempt to make me feel guilty about giving birth in a hospital, but reading Holding the Baby made me feel like I was getting a lecture on New Age philosophy and going all natural. Leah Williams, a midwife who attends women in at-home births in a small Col ...

The Bounty Hunter's Bride

The Bounty Hunter's Bride tells a wonderful story of love and redemption that succeeds at sending a strong message without talking down to readers. The author's characters all find themselves with few options in their lives, but it is in working together and loving each other that they find hope. ...

The Right Mr. Wrong

The Right Mr. Wrong is the second book Cindi Myer set in Crested Butte, Colorado (following Marriage on Her Mind). It's a quick, light read, and though the main characters have a fair amount of baggage from their past, the book is not filled with angst or deep emotions. While I enjoyed the heroine, ...
