Sunset Bridge

Sunset Bridge, the third and final book in the Happiness Key series by Emilie Richards, concludes with an emotionally satisfying ending. Having read all three books, I became very attached to all the characters and their story arcs. As much as I hate series that go on far too long, it is difficult t ...

Stranded With Her Ex

The title Stranded With Her Ex is rather sordid and suggests deserted tropical islands and bickering that turns into sex. The story, however, is not that at all.

Rare Breed

Rare Breed is a book I really wanted to like. It's an adventure tale set in Africa with a heroine who's a park ranger fighting to save the animals from poachers. Needless to say, this isn't exactly the kind of story you come across everyday. But the more I think about it, the more I realize I'm not ...

This is Loretta Chase's first book after a long hiatus. Those of you who have been waiting with bated breath should not be disappointed: Miss Wonderful is witty, charming, and deeply romantic.
