Running Hot

Jayne Ann Krentz has been a comfort read for me for years. While I've never hated any of her books, I haven't enjoyed some of her more recent efforts as much as earlier books. I am happy to report that Running Hot, featuring a fantastic hero and heroine, is one of my favorite Krentz books in a long ...

Hungry for More

Confession time: I’ve got the chef fantasy thing bad. For months and months now, I’ve been seeking out books featuring chef heroes searching in vain for one that would include the unique restaurant sensibility of Kitchen Confidential, the requisite food porn, and a hero who could evoke my wild ...

Sizzle and Burn

Jayne Ann Krentz has been a comfort read author for me for years. I've re-read some of her books so many times that they are falling apart. Part of what's comforting for me is knowing what to expect. In particular, I can count on witty dialogue and intelligent heroes and heroines. While these are pr ...

Morning Light

If you are a reader who likes her romances sweet, inspirational, and just a bit sappy, then Catherine Anderson is just the writer you have been looking for. She reminds me a bit of LaVyrle Spencer. Both authors are earnest and sincere – so much so that you almost hate to point out problems in the ...

Beyond Fearless

While I normally dislike paranormals, there are certain plot elements - fantasy, science fiction, paranormal - that I enjoy, including ghosts, benevolent witches, and psychics. Beyond Fearless has a heavy psychic/science fiction plot that is intriguing, however, the story as a whole fails to signif ...

Sleeping with Fear

I had not read a Kay Hooper novel in many years. I was not familiar with her Bishop/Special Crime Unit series. The suspense in Sleeping with Fear was written strongly and effectively, but the story wasn't otherwise as well-rounded as I would have liked. The novel opens with a bang: Riley Crane ...

Visions of Heat

This author just moved to the top of my auto-buy list. I loved Slave to Sensation, but had that fear in the back of my mind that maybe it was a one shot deal. Wrong! I’m happy to say I loved Visions of Heat, and from the looks of the teaser in the back, I can’t wait for the next one. The P ...

The Burning

Ann Van Helsing had a gift that was more like a curse: when she touched someone, she knew their entire life story along with their emotions of anger, hate, love etc. This "gift" kept Ann isolated on her estate with her uncle, afraid to touch anyone and feared by the villagers, who thought her a witc ...

Special Gifts

Special Gifts is my all-time favorite psychic romance. The rest of the romance reading world may hold up Linda Howard's Dream Man as the definitive version of this tale, but I'd take Anne Stuart's spin on it any day. It starts with that oh-so-common premise: the psychic heroine, the skeptical hero a ...

Sight Unseen

I will admit to a great deal of reluctance when sitting down to write this review. But it's no use procrastinating. Sight Unseen was painful to read, and even more so to finish. Faith Connors's vocation to become a forensic investigator became clear early on, when she suspected her best friend's ...
