With this latest installment in the Pink Carnation series, Lauren Willig takes us beyond the front lines of the Napoleonic Wars, off to British India. Penelope Staines, nee Deveraux, has always been a flirt, but when word gets out that she was unsupervised in a bedroom alone with Lord Frederick, ...

Dangerous Lies

Holy golly Moses. I've never put a publishing company on my auto buy list, but if this is what Medallion is putting out, considering the other recent stellar reviews here at AAR, I might just have to change my mind. Because this was, hands down, the best romantic suspense I've read since Angels Fall ...

Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers by Linnea Sinclair is a book I find myself re-reading at regular intervals, three times in three years so far. The first time I read it I considered it a guilty pleasure, with its dramatic plotline and the so very obvious Cinderella theme. It was only on rereading it that I discovere ...

Almost a Lady

Jane Feather is a longtime favorite of mine. Even when her books are not complete hits (Almost Innocent and the Duncan Sisters trilogy, there’s something about the strength of her writing that gets me every time. When she is on her game, she skillfully intertwines historical fact, intrigue, and ro ...

Bodyguard Rescue

Bodyguard Rescue is one of the more impressive series debuts I've read in some time. This may be Donna Young's first release, but you'd never know it from the book itself, which outshines what many veteran authors are delivering these days. Roman D'Amato is an operative working for a top-secr ...

The Loving Daylights

This book, the third in a series of romantic James Bond ripoffs, is Very Silly. Its characters are shallow, and its plot (not unexpectedly) is ridiculous. But it did make me giggle. Canadian accountant Abel Andretti (hee - that's giggle number one) comes to visit his sister Edie in Van ...

Beneath a Silent Moon

If you haven't yet read Tracy Grant's Daughter of the Game, I have a suggestion I hope you'll consider. Before you go any further in reading this review, I recommend that you take a look instead at Colleen McMahon's DIK Review of that incredible book. To be honest, it's not essential to have read th ...

Innocent Passions

Brenda Hiatt's latest release, Innocent Passions, showcases her ability to weave a tale of romantic intrigue into a Regency setting that is far more than wallpaper. With a little more work on the characters and their interactions, this author's work could ascend from pleasant distraction to true del ...

Almost a Princess

I've read Elizabeth Thornton before, but I've never read an Elizabeth Thornton quite like this one. Frankly, before reading this book, I rated her as an author I enjoyed when persuaded by reviews and message board buzz to check out her latest release, but definitely not as an autobuy. All tha ...

Spy Dust

I'm pretty biased as a fiction person, myself. I occasionally read other things, but only rarely. So it's pure coincidence that, upon finding Spy Dust on the list of review options, I recognized one of the authors' names as someone I'd read before, in his first book The Master Of Disguise (which, by ...
