Prisoner of My Desire

Now here's a book you can't judge by its cover, or rather, by its title. Yes, it's about desire, more like ire and desire. . . The story starts with a beating, the one of a mother before the eyes of her daughter; the ultimate test of power of a greedy, blood thirsty 12th Century, when women were ...

All Through the Night

Imagine yourself a young boy trapped in a wretched existence. A demon appears and offers you a hideous choice. A choice so vile that if you did what you knew was morally right, you would be left behind to surely decay and die. But, if you sold your soul and chose your own life over that of another, ...

Taming the Wolf

Seven. What makes an ordinary number like seven so, well, magical? The seventh son of a seventh son was enchanted. Seven brothers wed seven brides. Seven magnificent men fought for the right. And, a lost princess was given sanctuary by seven diminutive miners. Bonded in some way - often as brothers ...

The Prize

The first book I ever read by Julie Garwood was The Bride. Well, I loved it so much that subsequent couples paled when compared to Jamie and Alec. Until now . . . It's England, 1066, and by now you know what that means. Lady Nicholaa, a Saxon, is defending her home against Baron Royce, a Norman. ...

Born in Fire

As a reader who most often prefers historical romance, I was skeptical when my bookseller urged me to read Born In Fire, the first of a trilogy set in modern Ireland. I have often said that I can only enter the fantasy world romance offers when the time and place is long ago and far away. Well, I wa ...

Lady Gallant

Lady Gallant by Suzanne Robinson very much changed the way I look at romance novels. Tautly crafted, well researched and psychologically riveting, this book knocked my socks off. Be forewarned, however; this is no hearts and flowers love story. It is tense, gritty, but ultimately a very satisfying r ...

A Rose at Midnight

I first picked this book up at a used-book store and thought "Omigod, what a lousy cover!" I'm glad I didn't judge the book by the cover, for this book is surely keeper material. A Rose at Midnight begins with cook Ghislaine de Lorgny planning the murder of her employer's unscrupulous rakehell co ...

A
It Had To Be You

Hands down, this is the best screwball comedy romance I’ve ever read. I’m not sure why I overlooked Susan Elizabeth Phillips for so long, but after I picked up this novel I had to glom everything she wrote immediately. Phoebe Somerville is a blonde bombshell bimbo with a brain and heart that ...

A
Lord of Scoundrels

One of the greatest thrills about reading, for me, is to begin a new book and within the first few pages realize that it's one of the best books I've ever read. I get a shiver and I breathe a sigh of contentment and just fall into state of near total euphoria. This book will reside on my bedside tab ...
