The Secret of You and Me

The Secret of You and Me is an unexpected treat of a heartfelt but very dark novel, a warm and queer retelling of Persuasion by Jane Austen.  But it fashions a whole new world, a whole new set of feelings created from broken hearts and heavy religious guilt in small-town Texas. Captain Nora Noak ...

Squared Away

I've enjoyed all the books in Annabeth Albert's Out of Uniform series, and although I  wasn't wild about the book before this one Wheels Up, book five, Squared Away is one of my favourites, a beautifully told story of love – romantic and familial – trust, and acceptance, featuring a gorgeous sl ...

Catalyst

I’ve become a huge fan of Rachel Grant’s particular blend of complex, steamy and intricately plotted romantic suspense novels over the past year or so, and have been eagerly awaiting the release of Catalyst, the second book in her Flashpoint series.  Like the previous book, Tinderbox, Catalyst ...

Wheels Up

I’ve really enjoyed Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series. She’s done a great job linking the novels together while crafting fresh and special individual stories and romantic relationships in each one.  This time out her principals find themselves fighting their attraction and love for each ...

Love in a Sandstorm

Pine Harbour, Ontario is the fictional setting for a small town contemporary romance series by indie author Zoe York. Some romances in this kind of setting veer into stereotypical territory – think gossipy neighbors, the coffee crowd at the local diner, high school sweethearts, etc.. This author h ...
