The Dream Thief

It's a given, for me, that any book Shana Abe creates will be a beautifully written, lyrical story that captures all your senses. She could probably turn my grocery list into some type of poetry. But is that enough? No. If there isn't enough plot and character dimension, all the lush descriptions wo ...

Texas Rain

I’ve tried several previous Westerns by Jodi Thomas, but this was the first I truly enjoyed. While it isn’t perfect, it is a sweet and effective romance from start to finish. Travis McMurray is a half-Irish, half-Apache Texas Ranger. His father was killed when he was very young, and his mothe ...

Tiger's Eye

I've yet to be disappointed by Karen Robards, whether it be her modern-day romantic suspense or historical high-romance, because she creates engaging and lively books featuring fascinating heroes and heroines. Tiger's Eye, an historical romance set in England at some time in the 1800s, kept me rivet ...

Honest Illusions

Honest Illusions is, quite simply, Nora Roberts at her best. And since romance novels just don't get any better than Nora at the top of her game, that's saying something. When I first read this book as a novice romance reader in 1997, I was blown away. "Oh! Ding ding ding! So this is why my sister r ...

Prince of Time

Let the reader beware, this series cannot be read out of order due to the intricate plot set up throughout the three books. Having said that, if you are a fan of paranormals at all, this series is a must-read. I've been waiting for Morgan's story since he fell through the wormhole in the first of Mc ...

Diamonds and Desire

In Diamonds and Desire, Constance Laux's latest novel set during Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, a titled jewel thief meets his match in a spunky tabloid reporter. Aggie O'Day and her brother were left without funds, so the pretty redhead got a job as a reporter with a scurrilous rag called ...

The Irish Rogue

I read and enjoyed Emma Jensen's Best Laid Schemes last year, so when I picked up her newest novel, The Irish Rogue, I was expecting something similar - a nice little comedy of manners with some slapstick humor thrown in. I was in for a surprise, but not an unpleasant one. The Irish Rogue is a darke ...

B
The Charade

The Colonial Period and the Revolutionary War are favorite settings of mine, but books set during these times are very hard to come by. I suspect this is because this time period is not really familiar to a lot of people; writing a book set in the 1700s requires some research. I'm pleased to report ...

Jackie and the Giant

I'm sure you can think of any number of romances that are based on fairy tales - Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast are very popular candidates for transformation. But Jack and the Beanstalk? I was skeptical when I picked up Jackie and the Giant, but Linda Jones gives the old story a few new twists ...

All Through the Night

Imagine yourself a young boy trapped in a wretched existence. A demon appears and offers you a hideous choice. A choice so vile that if you did what you knew was morally right, you would be left behind to surely decay and die. But, if you sold your soul and chose your own life over that of another, ...
