Masques of Gold

A Retro Review originally published on December 30, 1999 I was never much of a history student. Dry textbooks just didn't hold my interest. Because of my love for adventure, intrigue and romance, much of what I've learned about medieval England has been gleaned from historical romances. I believe ...

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Series

The last book of this series, Sisterhood Everlasting, is on sale for 1.99. We've given very few A+ reviews at AAR--we thought it would be fun to republish this one. It's for the first four books in the five book series. A DIKlassic review originally published on March 28, 2007 Sitting down to ...

The Bride

The first time I read The Bride, I was captivated by Alec and Jamie's story. I refused to put the book down and I ended up reading it in record time. Wild horses could not have dragged me away from this book. Many people I've met still list The Bride as not only their favorite Julie Garwood, but the ...

One Christmas Knight

A DIKlassic originally published on February 7, 1998 Happy holidays to all! We all dream at one time or another of that handsome knight riding in on a white charger and rescuing us, but did you know that there really are modern day knights out there, just ready to rescue that damsel in distress? ...

Honor's Splendour (#76 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on August 23, 2001 I discovered romance novels when I was 13 years old when my aunt gave me a large paper bag full of books. In this bag I found one book with pages yellowed from time and its front cover worn clean off. I decided this obviously well love ...

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on March 4, 2003 Connie Brockway is a goddess. Talk about your buried treasures; while many people are familiar with her more recent historicals - The Bridal Season and Bridal Favors - her unique skill and imagination most shine through for me in some of ...

Mackenzie's Heroes

A DIKlassic Review originally published on March 6, 2000 The books in the Mackenzie saga are among Linda Howard's best, where the men are capable, sexy as hell, and the heroines a perfect match in their own way. Mackenzie's Heroes deals with two of the children of Wolf and Mary Mackenzie from Ma ...

Double Trouble

A DIKlassic review originally published on November 29, 2001 There's definitely something about Mary, Aunt Mary that is. Aunt Mary is the Internet advice columnist who is known as Maralys O'Reilly in real life. She may be my favorite heroine of any book I've read this year. With Maralys as narrator, ...

Aphrodite's Kiss

A DIKlassic review review originally published on May 6, 2001 Following on the heels of her The Cat's Fancy, her delightful single title contemporary debut romance, Aphrodite's Kiss has made Julie Kenner's books an autobuy for me. I found this book a total delight and absolutely unique. For those ...

Into the Woods

a DIKlassic review review originally published on February 22, 2001 I was a little doubtful when I picked up Into the Woods, because it’s based on the fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel.” Have you read it lately? “Hansel and Gretel” is about two children who are abandoned like an unwanted lit ...
