Whispers from Yesterday

"So many regrets, Lord. So many regrets." These words of Sophia Taylor echo through the pages of Whispers from Yesterday, an intricate tale of pain and despair rooted in the past - and the love, faith, and hope that heal the present and change the future. Robin Lee Hatcher boldly, but with great lov ...

Joe's Wife

Get out the handkerchiefs ladies, this is a good one! Joe's Wife is a three hanky read in the best sense. It's a marriage of convenience story between a widow from a good family and a man who is the son of the town whore. When Tye Hatcher came home from the Civil War, no one would hire him. No ma ...

Texas Destiny

Texas Destiny is a Beauty and the Beast story, a road romance, and quite possible the most tear-inducing book I have ever read in my life. I've often thought if I could get a copy into the hands of all the fans of romance novels and then buy stock in the companies that make hankies, I would be a ric ...

Baby Love

Baby Love is intense and I mean intense. I wavered between biting my nails and reaching for hankies until I reached the end when I closed the book and went to lie down for a rest. I did say this was an intense book, didn't I Two years ago - Rafe Kendrick had it all. He and his brother owned a lar ...

Baby Love

Catherine Anderson's Baby Love features some fabulous writing - the premise which begins the book is explosive and riveting. While there is much to recommend about Anderson's effort, it is also necessary to point out that the story devolves into a series of clichés that verge on the melodramatic. ...

Dream a Little Dream

Ever put a book down with the intention of finishing it and then just letting it sit there for weeks on end until finally, you tell yourself you're gonna finish the story, no matter what? Well, that's what I did with Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Dream A Little Dream and now I'm kicking myself that I di ...

Summer Campaign

I just finished Carla Kelly's Summer Campaign and have to spread the news to the few who haven't had the joy of meeting Onyx and Jack; those of you who've already read it can sit back and say, "what took her so long?" Simply put, there has seldom been a hero and heroine who more deserved their HEA t ...

Too Hot to Handle

Too Hot to Handle just hurts so good. Know what I mean? The hero is very nearly a total S.O.B.; the heroine subjected to torture nearly beyond belief. The love scenes are filled with incredibly purple prose. The incendiary heat between Tory Wells and Ethan Reever begins, nearly impossibly, the momen ...

Beyond All Reason

This is the first book of Judith Duncan's Wide Open Spaces series, and I feel it's a book that's not to be missed. Tanner McCall is a half-breed Native Canadian, living on a ranch just outside Bolton, Alberta. Now, that might not mean anything to anybody else, but to me, it's a real town in the Prov ...

Texas Glory

Well, no matter how hard I try to avoid it, I seem to run across somebody's opinion on a book I'm reviewing. I try my best to ignore other reviews until I've had a chance to read the book myself, but I still hear a lot of comments such as, "this is an A book," or "I was disappointed in that." So, wh ...
