A Kiss for Midwinter

We're sharing older reviews of some of holiday themed romances. This one's a winner. Originally published on March 12, 2013.  I definitely enjoyed A Kiss for Midwinter. Courtney Milan definitely seems to have adopted the trend of publishing e-novellas between full-length novels, and I a ...

The Governess Affair (#86 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on May 15, 2012 Perhaps my favorite novella in romance is This Wicked Gift, written and published by Ms. Milan in 2009. In it, Ms. Milan presents a hero who forces the heroine to make love with him. Things, however, are not what they seem, and in that t ...

The Suffragette Scandal

If Courtney Milan’s last book – The Countess Conspiracy – was a love letter to the forgotten women of science, those women who were ridiculed and derided because they dared to encroach upon the male preserve of scientific investigation and discovery, then The Suffragette Scandal is by way of b ...

The Duchess War

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor To start with, I’d like to thank both Ms. Milan and Ms. Landor for a wonderful audio experience. I laughed and I cried – the story was superb, the characters engaging and well-drawn, and the performance exceeded my expectations. Ms. Landor is always excellent, but h ...

The Heiress Effect

Ms Milan’s novella The Governess Affair, which is the prequel to this series, was one of my favourite books from late 2012, and I’ve listed Hugo and Serena from that story as one of my favourite couples on my reviewer profile here at AAR. Oliver Marshall, the hero of The Heiress Effect is their ...

The Duchess War

It's not uncommon for me to take some time to get around to reading an author everyone else has been enjoying for some time. Our reviewers request their books early, and rather than pulling rank I tend to let others go ahead. So no, I haven't been living under a rock, but yes, this is the first time ...
