If I Never Met You

Part women’s fiction and part romance If I Never Met You is wholly delightful. A novel about second - and third - chances and falling in love with whom you least expect it, this gem of a book is funny, sweet and charming. Barrister Laurie and her significant other Dan have been together since t ...

Autumn's Child

Autumn’s Child is a truly lovely second-chance romance featuring a warm cast of secondary characters and a lot of sharp-eyed longing. Mrs. Norton W. Ridge II - Eleanor – is a set-in-her-ways old woman of the genteel south, whose relatives mostly abhor her, aside from a niece who considers car ...

A Game With One Winner

I always love the favorite tropes prompt because it invites me to dive into my category romance stash. This time around, I went for a second chance at love story. A Game With One Winner is a 2013 release by Lynn Raye Harris. Since it's Harlequin Presents, this iteration of the story gets the glitz, ...

This series stands out because it is different; it puts a s ...

Wild at Heart

Good things come to those who wait. I've waited quite a while for a good romantic suspense - heavy on the romance - and I picked a good one when I asked to review Wild At Heart.

Till the Stars Fall

Kathleen Gilles Seidel is amazing. Why she is not better known and more widely read is a complete mystery. Her books are masterpieces of characterization and storytelling, filled with clever observations and the flavor of real life. Till the Stars Fall is my favorite book by her yet. It showcases al ...
