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 ...

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 ...

Marsha Canham has written a real winner here, with believable characters - not an evil sister in sight - and lots of suspense. Also, while it deals with dark subjects, like the French Revolution, it isn't a down ...

Brazen Angel

What makes a book great? Believable characters, a fast paced plot, a satisfying ending and a well-written story. Brazen Angel by Elizabeth Boyle hosts an entire cast of believable characters, from the leads right down to the walk-ons. The story moved as such a quick pace that I could scarcely draw b ...

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, ...
