enemies to lovers

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, ...

The Vow

Truth to tell, I've only been reading Romance for about eighteen months, so what's old hat to some is probably new stuff to me. If you're a longtime Medieval Romancer, you've probably read variations on the William the Conqueror theme countless times; if you're new to medievals, as I am, this subjec ...

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. ...

Lord of the Storm

Take Star Wars, add a little Romeo and Juliet, and turn up the thermostat almost to the boiling point, and you’ll begin to approach Lord of the Storm. I go back and re-read this one anytime I want to ward off the chill of winter. The story takes place in a futuristic world in which an intergala ...

The Skypirate

The Skypirate is the sequel to Lord of the Storm, and it contains the most daring redemption story I’ve ever read. Like the original, it takes place in a futuristic world where the evil Coalition rules over all of the planets and enslaves many of the conquered populations. Califa Claxton is the fo ...

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 ...
