A Wicked Kind of Husband

I love it when I pick up a book by a début or new-to-me author and find myself quickly engrossed by it - which is exactly what happened with Mia Vincy’s A Wicked Kind of Husband.  I’m a sucker for a good marriage-of-convenience story, and this IS a good one; well defined, complex characters, s ...

I Hate You, I Love You

This one is great for fans of The Hating Game, or Dating You, Hating You. An enemies-to-lovers romance set in a college environment, I ate up I Hate You, I Love You with a big spoon and was delighted from beginning to end. Naomi Price is a beloved poetry professor with few complaints about her li ...

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

One of my favorite things about the Top 100 Romances reader poll is all of the suggestions that come in. When I first started reading romance it was my go-to place to find the most beloved books in the genre, and I continue to look forward to it as a chance to hear from our many readers about curren ...

A Duke by Default

I love a good meet cute/meet crazy and Alyssa Cole offers up a delectable new favorite in her latest novel, A Duke by Default. Funny, poignant and sweet this is a truly fantastic summer read. This is book two of the Reluctant Royals series by this author but you don’t have to read the first boo ...

Dirty Games

I’ve read and enjoyed a handful of HelenKay Dimon’s romantic suspense novels, some of them m/f, and some m/m, so I know pretty much what to expect from her;  a fast-paced, energetic and steamy story that is perhaps longer on action than it is on romance – which is exactly what I got.  Dirty ...
