Where the Horses Run

This latest effort by Kaki Warner is a little bit of a departure from her previous books as the majority of this novel takes place in England rather than the American West, but the west does not entirely disappear as a majority of the characters are Heartbreak Creek residents traveling to England. T ...

All That I Need

There’s a problem when a book provides more evidence that a hero and heroine should not be together than evidence that they should. While I loved the heroine of All That I Need, I didn’t like the hero, and their courtship relied so heavily on chance throwing them back together that I didn’t se ...

For Their Baby

For Their Baby engaged my attention throughout the book, but at the end I really doubted that the couple would be together for the long term. And Kitty and David missed one of the most important steps in their relationship, the joy of falling in love. Working as a barmaid, Kitty Hemmings handles ...

Chasing the Sun

Coming to the end of an enjoyable saga is like bidding far-flung relatives and friends goodbye after a holiday or vacation. If the reader is immersed in the tale, tears and a feeling of sorrow follow the turning of the last page. And that’s exactly how I felt reading the last paragraph of the Wilk ...

Claiming His Bought Bride

While Rachel Bailey’s debut romance has some interesting aspects, overall, it didn’t work for me.  Lily Grayson and Damon Blakely were together for six months when Lily ended their relationship because she felt Damon was emotionally unreliable. He was never there for her when she needed him; ...

The Wives of Bath

The Wives of Bath has the pure silliness and lightness of Chick Lit, but with grown up emotions and more intense problems, this "Mommy Lit" novel is a bit of a deeper read. To say that Amanda and Alice dislike each other would be an understatement. Conceited and materialistic, Amanda blames p ...

Rogue's Reform

Rogue's Reform is the third in Marilyn Pappano's Heartbreak Canyon miniseries. It is not necessary to have read the earlier books in the series, but doing so will add a much greater depth to the characters in this book. I urge you to find the earlier books - Cattleman's Promise and The Horseman's Br ...

Daddy By Choice

Daddy By Choice is a baby book. The hero is a former cowboy. The cover is really, really ugly (is that man sewing)? So naturally, I passed it up. No I didn't. Daddy By Choice is by Paula Detmer Riggs and anyone who can do as she did with Her Secret, His Child, which was to take the old, hackneyed se ...

The Morning After

I admit, once in a while, like, let’s say, when I’ve had it with my day job, I dive into my little fantasy of having some sexy, mysterious man take me away to a deserted island, where I am surrounded by luxury and don’t have to deal with petty office politics. After reading this book, however, ...

A Perfect Hero

Please do not make the mistake of looking at the cover of A Perfect Hero with its picture of three adorable toddlers and a teddy bear with a Whose Child? blurb on it and say, "Oh no, another secret baby book!" Yes, there are secret babies in this book, but there is so much more! Ian Ma ...
