Island Affair

When I think of Priscilla Oliveras’ books, 'joy' is the word that comes to mind. I don’t consider her novels fluffy romps (at least not the ones I’ve read so far), but there’s a deeply joyful quality to her stories that never fails to lift my mood. Island Affair deals with deeply emotional t ...

My Forever Plus-One

Hot to the Touch

As a fan of Jaci Burton's contemporary romances, especially her Play by Play multi-sports series, I'm always happy to see her name on an upcoming new release.
