An Earl, the Girl and a Toddler

Vanessa Riley’s Rogues and Remarkable Women series continues apace with An Earl, a Girl and a Toddler, the heartbreaking but ultimately exhilarating story of lady’s maid Jemima St. Maur. While readers definitely remember Jemina from the first book in the series (A Duke, the Lady, and a Baby), ...

His Haven

The third book in Con Riley’s His series of contemporary romances, His Haven is a gorgeous, angsty opposites-attract romance between an uptight lawyer and an open-hearted gentle giant of a man, and it’s every bit as good as His Compass, which I adored. The books in this series work as standal ...

Pride and Premeditation

Pride and Premeditation hits a lot of notes that tempt me - it’s a Jane Austen retelling, a murder mystery, and an historical romance.

Boyfriend Material

Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material is quite possibly the best romantic comedy I’ve ever read.  Almost every page produced a smile, a grin, a snort or a full-out belly-laugh – and I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a book that produced full on giggling of the sort that made my fami ...

The Trouble With Hating You

A strong heroine, charming hero and fiery love story make The Trouble with Hating You an utterly delightful début. To say that Liya Thakkar has daddy issues is to seriously understate the problem.

If I Never Met You

Part women’s fiction and part romance If I Never Met You is wholly delightful. A novel about second - and third - chances and falling in love with whom you least expect it, this gem of a book is funny, sweet and charming.

Razia

Slavery. It’s easy to assume it’s no longer an issue since it’s been banned in Western countries but the fact is, slavery is an ongoing issue in many parts of the world. And much as we don’t like to think about it, it often rears its head in our own backyards. Razia takes a look at the ‘ne ...
