Accidentally on Purpose

Ms. Shalvis recently posted on her Facebook page that Accidentally on Purpose is her 101st published work. That's quite a feat and worthy of celebration! She's captured the minds and hearts of romance readers over a number of years, and can always be counted on to provide a happy ending for her char ...

Wild at Whiskey Creek

Wild at Whiskey Creek offers a twist on the friends-to-lovers theme, with the long-standing friendship between the hero and heroine having recently fallen apart. Unfortunately, however, I found the book difficult to get into, and put it down multiple times. Neither the hero nor heroine captured my i ...

Burn Down the Night

Burn Down the Night is the third book in author Molly O’Keefe’s suspenseful romance series Everything I Left Unsaid. The first two books, Everything I Left Unsaid and The Truth About Him were a duology featuring Annie and Dylan, with book one told from Annie’s point of view and book two, a con ...

Under the Surface

Under the Surface is an apt title for this suspenseful, dramatic, and sexy romance seething with emotional undercurrents. It's part of the Alpha Ops series, though the first full length novel. The previous three were novellas featuring Navy SEALs, and the third one, The SEAL's Second Chance introduc ...

Of course, there’s plenty of danger and hard work as well as serious subjects such as homicide. However, the writing and main events of the ...

Her Irresistible Protector

Girl from the rough side of town finds herself mixed up with a detective? Sounds like a familiar plot to me, but in Her Irresistible Protector, Michelle Douglas gives it a fresh spin. Sadly, the characterizations and some of the plot points could have used a little more freshening up to make this mo ...

The Jade Temptress

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Jeannie Lin’s historical novels set during the Tang Dynasty in China. This is often considered a golden era of Chinese culture and that is beautifully captured in these novels, from the intricacies of the scholar system to the delicacies of the tea ritual. In this latest ...

Watch Your Back

When a book is the length that many of Karen Rose’s novels are, the writing has to be spectacular to keep the work from getting bogged down by sheer longitude. It works better in some novels than in others and I am happy to report that this is one of the ones where it really works. Eight years ...

Search the Dark

All the comforts of home. That saying serves to remind us that home is a place where many of us feel most at ease, most ourselves. But for some, home can have a far different meaning. Home can mean the place where you were abused, looked down upon, taken advantage of. For the hero of this story his ...
