Part of Your World

Narrated by Julia Whelan and Zachary Webber Strong word of mouth about the author and their new audiobook led me to request Part of Your World from NetGalley last week.  Abby Jimenez is a new-to-me author and lately, I’ve been a bit leery about veering away from old favorites, but I’m happy ...

Renegade

You MUST NOT read this book review if you intend to read Raider and Gambler (books one and two in the Coalition Rebellion: Ziem series) because it has spoilers for those books, and they are best read in sequence. Iolana Davorin married Torstan Davorin and gave birth to four children, including Dr ...

Sink or Swim

Annabeth Albert has entertained me in the past with several of her m/m romances, and in Sink or Swim, the second book in her navy-themed Shore Leave series, she's upped the ante with a charming, single dad meets playboy romance. Felix Sigurd, newly divorced doctor, parent to his two nieces Madeli ...

Holiday Outing

A Retro Review originally published on December 31, 2009 I decided to take a chance on Holiday Outing after Jessica at Racy Romance Reviews posted a review of this novella. I’m so very glad I did, because this was a nice little gem to add to my holiday reading this year. Jonah Levinson hasn ...

The Brightest Star in Paris

The Brightest Star in Paris is the follow up to Diana Biller’s 2019 début, The Widow of Rose House.  I haven’t got around to reading that one, but I gather that the books are linked by virtue of the fact that the hero of Brightest Star – Doctor Benedict Moore – is the brother of Sam from R ...

The Woman at the Front

I associate Lecia Cornwall’s name with historical romances, although I confess I haven’t read any of her work in that genre.  The blurb for her latest book, The Woman at the Front, caught my eye because of its First World War setting; I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Northern France (pre-C ...

Island Fling With the Surgeon

I’ve read more than a few category romances (mostly Harlequin Presents) set in lush, tropical locales. However, many of those books featured Western tourists discovering themselves and finding love in a beautiful, foreign place.  In this novel, the fictional island of St. Eustace is where the lea ...

How to Win the Surgeon's Heart

Many AAR reviewers, including me, have been buzzing about the good things coming out of Harlequin lately. I haven’t read a book from the Harlequin Medicals line before, so it seemed like a good time to give one a try. Tina Beckett is a prolific Medical author, and her latest, How to Win the Surgeo ...

The Soulmate Equation

So if a DNA-based matchmaking company promised to match you with your dream partner based on your DNA, would you do it? No more left and right swipes, no more guessing and hoping for the best. In The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren, Jessica Davis decides to give it a try and ends up with a nea ...

The Valmont Contingency

A number of readers recommended Val Roberts to me on a thread about looking for SF romances. Overall, The Valmont Contingency was a solid read, and you definitely can’t beat the price point. However, some logic and plot errors, alongside a completely avoidable fetishizing of Japan, held this back. ...
