Good Girl Complex

Good Girl Complex is a contemporary cross-class romance which is weighed down by its formula, and while the author gives an excellent view of her working-class hero, she doesn’t deliver on the heroine’s wealthy side of the class divide. Mackenzie - Mac - Cabot is just one of the many filthy-r ...

The Sins of Lord Lockwood

It’s been a decade since Liam Devaliant, the Earl of Lockwood, stepped onto the pages of Meredith Duran’s début novel, The Duke of Shadows. Handsome, charming and enigmatic, Lockwood immediately captured my attention, the mention of his mysterious four year absence from society and his obvious ...

I don’t really believe the CIA is sending super hot retired, elite Special Forces soldiers to assassinate corrupt, sadistic, crazy rich bad guys or that said bad guys employ cross-dressing assassins to keep them alive.  Or that these deadly assassins are so par ...

Lady of the Knight

Medieval Romances have been very thin on the ground in recent years, so I was excited to see a first-time author published in this genre, and an author who takes great risks in the creation of her hero and heroine. While I applaud the author's willingness to venture into new territory, the book, tak ...

The Sea Wife

The best thing about being a reviewer for AAR is that it leads me to read books I wouldn't otherwise have picked up. The Sea Wife is a one I probably would not have discovered on my own: not only have I never heard of this author, but the horrid cover art depicts the hero and heroine sailing the sea ...
