Flirting with Forty

I enjoy books with older heroines, and Flirting With Forty sounded like a fun book. Unfortunately, the fun moments were few and far between. Jackie Laurens is a single mother of two young children. Her marriage ended about a year ago, and she still hasn't recovered. While she's no longer in l ...

The Object of Love

The Object of Love is a May-December, interracial romance with a ghost as one of the secondary characters. I would call that unique. While I’ve read a number of May-December romances, interracial romances, and ghost romances, this is the first time I’ve seen all these elements in one book. ...

Protective Measures

I often get the sense there are two types of series romance readers. There are those who expect a series romance to do nothing more than provide a quick read that holds their attention for a few hours before instantly fading from memory. Then there are those, like me, who believe a series romance ca ...

Sleeping Beauty

It has been two years since I first read Sleeping Beauty (published in 1998), and as I reread this favorite of mine recently, I found it an even greater delight the second time around. While most romances fade from my memory rather quickly, this is one I clearly hadn’t forgotten and I found myself ...

A Place Called Trinity

I find stories of spiritual discovery and renewal of any faith appealing. Moreover, I really like well done historical novels, romance or otherwise, especially those featuring more common folk as opposed to the elite classes usually shown. Thus I requested to review A Place Called Trinity by Delia P ...

East of the Sun, West of the Moon

Carole Bellacera's latest novel is the involving but not always comfortable story of a May-December romance in which what's right is put before what feels right, and where happily ever afters don't always immediately follow the first glow of love. Leigh Fallon is the forty year old wif ...

Ritual of Proof

Ritual of Proof features a sheltered but willful young virgin, an inescapable arranged marriage and an evil villain hell-bent on destroying the couple’s blossoming rapture. Is that a snore I hear? So, you think you've read this story a few hundred times already? Why would you even consider paying ...

Fast Women

I was so excited when I received my copy of Fast Women. It literally made my day brighter to unwrap it and see its gleaming red and white cover. I'd been looking forward to reading this for months. Welcome to Temptation was one of my favorite reads for last year and I couldn't wait to see what Crusi ...

The Villa

I pride myself on my loyalty. I always root for the Denver Broncos, I never miss an episode of ER, and I buy every single book by Nora Roberts the very second it's released. Lately though, I’ve found myself thinking maybe I should wait for paperback. I’ve found her last few hardcovers disappoint ...
