Troubled Relationship

Fall from Grace

I’ve enjoyed Kristi Gold’s romances before, but off the top of my head, I can’t think of any one that was truly special. In Fall from Grace, one of the debut romances in Harlequin's new Everlasting line (which explore romantic relationships over a period of time), she truly impresses with a he ...

A Cradle for Caroline

Set in that very same town as its Harlequin Duets partner A Hickey for Harriet, A Cradle For Caroline concerns the editor of the local newspaper, Jonathon Kushner, and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Caroline. Ever since she caught him their bedroom with a naked woman a month ago, Jon can't even get Caro to ...

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 ...

Be My Baby Tonight

Kasey Michaels' Be My Baby Tonight was a fun surprise. I have read and enjoyed her traditional Regency Romances, but had never read one of her contemporary releases. So I requested to review this book without knowing much about it. I soon realized two things: the hero is a baseball player and the sp ...

A Marriage to Fight For

A Marriage to Fight For was first released in the UK (where I live) in 2001 and was, for me, one of the best books I read last year. This superb book, which is an example of series romance at its absolute best, moved me greatly. It is the story of a family in crisis where each member is a strong per ...

The Spiral Path

In her second contemporary romance, Mary Jo Putney tells the tale of a memorable tortured hero and the woman who refuses to give up on him. While this sounds like a conventional love story, the special characters prove that, as always, Putney can be relied on to deliver something different. The resu ...

Mirrors and Mistakes

I discovered Kathleen Gilles Seidel as a result of perusing the If You Like... page, and have been steadily glomming her books ever since. I have yet to find one that I don't like. Mirrors and Mistakes is an early title for the Harlequin American Romance line (#57), and is likely more than a little ...

The Obedient Bride

The Obedient Bride takes on the issue of Regency adultery and humanizes it with the depiction of two very different people caught in an arranged marriage. Many Regency Romances speak lightly of rakes and adultery among the aristocratic classes. Many have heroes who regularly bed married women. Few e ...

A Season In Eden

A Season In Eden is the type of book that I normally avoid at all costs. I'm not a big fan of heartache and grief-filled stories and never read one if I can avoid it. I steer clear of mainstream "women's fiction" for exactly this reason. Reality surrounds me and if I want a good cry all I have to do ...
