Night & Day

I’ve eagerly been snapping up the books in Rachel Ember’s Wild Ones series, so when I saw she had a new standalone novel coming out, I was eager to read it.  Night & Day is an opposites attract romance between a recently separated lawyer and the guy he employs as the nanny for his infant da ...

The Five Day Reunion

Mona Shroff’s The Five Day Reunion is about a divorced couple pretending to be married for the duration of the hero’s sister’s wedding so as not to shock his recently-ill grandfather or provide fodder for his Indian aunts to criticize his mother. I didn’t see enough reason for the couple to ...

Home for Christmas

a Retro Review originally published on October 31, 2003 Patricia Potter's first Silhouette Intimate Moments release, Home for Christmas, didn't receive the attention it deserved when it first came out.

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. This novel sets Elizabeth Bennett in London as the daughter of a barrister striving to prove her worth. She is the second of five sisters, and while Lizzie want ...

Rebel: An Outlawed Story

Sally Malcolm’s Rebel is a novella/short story that acts as a prequel to the full-length novel King’s Man, out later this month.   It’s short and sweet, but packs quite an emotional punch as it charts the development of the relationship between two young men from very different backgrounds w ...

Imagine

It’s 1896, and in San Francisco, successful, hard-working attorney Margaret Huntington Smith has been urged by her father, a judge, to take a well-deserved vacation.  Knowing she won’t go unless given a push (in the best way) he’s brought her a first class ticket for a cruise to “French Oce ...

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 ...
