Shadowlight

A Blast from the Past review first published on November 19, 2009 I'll just say this first: Lynn Viehl is the bomb. On to specifics. With one touch, Jessa Bellamy can uncover your darkest secrets and expose the ugliest corners of your soul. Unfortunately for her, biotech company GenHance has di ...

Untamed

A Blast from the Past review: originally published on May 30, 2001 Untamed was one of those books I just couldn't put down. I stretched breaks at work, and prolonged my lunch period as much as I dared because I couldn't bear to stop reading. Whenever that happens, I know I've found a keeper. When ...

The Spiral Path

(originally reviewed on December 21, 2001) In her second contemporary romance, Mary Jo Putney tells the tale of a memorable tortured hero and the woman who refuses to give up on him. While this sounds like a conventional love story, the special characters prove that, as always, Putney can be reli ...

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 ...

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? ...

A Kingdom of Dreams (#46 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on April 8, 1997 As a rule, when I discover an author, I try to read her entire backlist. I thought I had done so with Judith McNaught until a friend suggested A Kingdom Of Dreams. As a huge fan of Whitney, My Love, I was excited to discover that Whitney ...

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 ...

My Dearest Enemy (#77 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

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 ...

Uncommon Vows

A DIKlassic Review originally published on August 10, 2002 Uncommon Vows is my favorite among Mary Jo Putney’s books, more romantic to me than even the wonderful Shattered Rainbows. Putney’s only medieval begins under the omen of an eclipse of the moon whose light is devoured by shadow on the ...
