To Beguile a Beast

Yes, it’s now six in a row. All of Elizabeth Hoyt’s historical romances have received DIK status here at AAR. As with many readers, I have followed the author since she appeared on the scene in 2006 and read each book as it was published. Two of her previous books earned places on my personal DI ...

The Randolph Legacy is a powerful early-American novel that started a little slowly, but quickly picked up steam until I became totally absorbed in the story and its wonderful characters. In 1803, a young boy from an American ship is impressed on a British ship. When he refuses to obey the ca ...

If a Man Answers

I'm so happy! Merline Lovelace's new SIM, If a Man Answers, lived up to my expectations. If it hadn't, I would have been disappointed because If a Man Answers is one of my all-time favorite movies (starring Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee and Caesar Romero to boot!). This book lives up to the good connot ...

Night Into Day

I always like a book that's a little different from the norm and although this is an older book, if you get an opportunity to find it in a used bookstore, grab it and run with it. It's well worth your time. Patrick O'Casey is a jock - big time. He's been a quarterback for a long time and at 36, h ...

Simply Irresistible

This is All I Ask

There aren't too many perfect reads in this world. I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to read This Is All I Ask, and I envy those of you who have yet to read it, because you are in for a treat. Lynn Kurland took two people - one who was horribly abused by her father, and one who l ...

Her Secret, His Child

In Her Secret, His Child, Paula Detmer Riggs confronts the delicate issue of date rape head-on when she brings hero Mitch Scanlon, disabled now but still potently attractive, back into Carly Alderson's life. This book earned its place on my keeper shelves because in Mitch, Riggs created a hero so po ...
