Simply Irresistible

My brain is full of factoids. That makes me a great Jeopardy player but it's kind of frustrating because sometimes I can't remember where I read a certain thing. Anyway, I read somewhere that editors of romance novels think readers don't like books about athletes. Well editors, this reader loves the ...

The Vicar's Daughter

Delightful, simply delightful! This charming tale is what Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice would have been like if Miss Lizzy and Mr. Darcy had decided to defy convention and touch each other, alllll over. The storyline is a favorite: A stuffed-shirt gentleman fights falling for a nice, but poor, c ...

Wife is a Four Letter Word

Today while surfing the 'Net, somebody mentioned this book and how good it was and how funny it was and I thought to myself, "Gee, I picked that up the other night. Think I'll go read it."

The Cinderella Deal

While there's plenty of her trademark humor in The Cinderella Deal, there's also quite a bit of poignancy, so much so that I got weepy during the last fourth of the book (and, no, I was not having a PMS da ...

The Famous Heroine

Mary Balogh's The Famous Heroine is an amusingly lighthearted Regency romance. The author manages to imbue her witty writing with some surprising and moving emotional intensity and has written wonderfully well-rounded characters to boot. The author gives the hero and heroine elbow room to define ...

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 ...

Wild Dream

Wild Dream is a romantic comedy of some charm, set in a mythical New Mexico town shortly after the Civil War. Alice Duncan's flair for slapstick and clever comedy comes on too strong for the first part of the book, but then settles down to create some delightful romance between Adelaide Blewitt (pro ...

Wild Irish Rose

I've long been an admirer of the writing of Lisa Ann Verge. Her Heaven in his Arms is one of my favorite Road Romances. So I keenly anticipated reading her latest release, Wild Irish Rose, which is another Road Romance. And while it took me awhile to appreciate this book, something unusual and very ...
