Fall from Grace

I’ve enjoyed Kristi Gold’s romances before, but off the top of my head, I can’t think of any one that was truly special. In Fall from Grace, one of the debut romances in Harlequin's new Everlasting line (which explore romantic relationships over a period of time), she truly impresses with a he ...

Ties That Bind

Some readers might disagree with me (and vehemently too), but I think that the fantasy of a divorced couple reconciling is an alluring one - under the right circumstances, of course. This is the primary storyline in Kathryn Shay’s Ties That Bind, and she makes a convincing argument for the possibi ...

In No More Playas, the sequel to The Playas Handbook, Lance Montgomery, the self-titled biggest playa, has to change his ways in order to win back the woman of his dreams. Lance blew his chance with Dr. Asia Fowler in a moment of panic when the thought of commitment scared the living daylight ...

Miss Chartley's Guided Tour

A young woman, left at the altar by her vanished fiancé, is forced to become a teacher when her family suffers a major financial loss. Years later, while traveling to another position, she meets up with her ex-betrothed, now a nobleman. Does this sound like any number of Regency romances you've rea ...

Remember the Time

I love the theme of unrequited love, and Remember The Time is one of the best books utilizing that theme that I have ever read. There are three main characters involved in the storyline and we are introduced to them at the beginning of the book by way of an italicized flash back. Ms Reynolds uses th ...

Killing Time

Killing Time is a book that started with a lower grade and slowly clawed its way up to a better one. It’s a story with plenty of flaws, so I was surprised how well it ultimately came together in the end, well enough that I can recommend it, albeit with reservations. The book doesn’t get o ...

Tell Me You Love Me

Heroine Tyanna Montgomery won my heart on page four of Tell Me You Love Me when someone approaches her in a dark gym parking lot and, instead of screaming or being a helpless victim, she punches and kicks her would-be assailant until he collapses onto the pavement. Now that's a woman I can root for! ...

Nick All Night

I knew if I waited long enough I'd find a another good series romance. And I did. I have loved Cheryl St. John's Harlequin Historical titles, so when I saw her name on this book, I grabbed it. What I found was a book that praises small town life without putting down the city. It is a hymn to family, ...

The Boy Next Door

I was pleased to review The Boy Next Door because I read and enjoyed the authors' previous American release Come Together. I'm happy to say that their new one is even better. This story is absorbing and touching, the dual first-person narrative device still works well, and this story isn't quite so ...
