The Chisholm Trail Bride

This is the first novel I’ve read by Kathleen Y’Barbo, and I can see why she’s a bestselling author – she’s a good storyteller. Each of her characters is drawn with descriptive detail, and she has a deft way of weaving romance and adventure together. The Chisholm Trail Bride is one of seve ...

Hard Ride

‘Tis a good day to be a romance book reviewer; A.M. Arthur hath stole my heart. (Post-reading afterglows bring out the poet in me.) I’m not sure how Arthur’s Clean Slate Ranch series has escaped my notice, but now that I’ve found her, I shan’t let her go. Sweet ‘n’ steamy gay interr ...

Unbroken Cowboy

If anything could entice a person to write poetry about forearms, it would be Dane Parker’s very loaded guns. Maisey Yates is still a queen of banter, gentle humor and strong characters.  In Unbroken Cowboy, our nature-loving heroine bumps head on into a rodeo star who can’t accept that maybe ...
