Best Laid Plans

I enjoyed the previous book in this series, and was pleased when I learned that big-hearted, slightly awkward Charlie Matheson would be getting a story.  Better Than People was warm and lovely, with a well-developed romance and well-rounded characters, and I’d hoped for more of the same here - bu ...

Wild Rain

Historical western romances used to make up a large part of my reading quota, but in recent years, I've found myself gravitating toward other types of romance. However, when I read the blurb for Wild Rain, book two in Beverly Jenkins' Women Who Dare series, I knew I had to return to the subgenre, ev ...

Wild Rain

You know you’re in the hands of a master when you part the covers of a Beverly Jenkins book.  Wild Rain is no exception to that rule, providing us with a wonderful romance worth falling into impassioned love with. Spring Lee is a self-possessed woman who lives on her own terms on her own land, ...

The Honey-Don't List

Christina Lauren’s spring release, The Honey-Don’t List, with its coworker hero and heroine who don’t like each other until they love each other is - and I mean this in a complimentary way = a less intense, and in some ways more thoughtful, if lower-grade, The Hating Game. Carey Duncan work ...

Tempest

Who hasn't read a Beverly Jenkins book? Her stories are as memorable as the author herself, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to review one of her novels. Tempest is a western mail-order bride story, and I'm in awe of the heroine's willingness to start a new life in a new land all by herse ...

Her Hesitant Heart

When I read the synopsis of this story, I thought it looked simple and sweet, and although I don't read a lot of Westerns in general, I wanted to read this one. While the romance between our two main characters could definitely be classified as sweet, I would never call this book simple. It is amazi ...

Close Enough to Touch

After reading positive reviews of Ms. Dahl's books by other reviewers, I requested Close Enough to Touch. However, after a couple of chapters, I still hadn't connected with the characters. One reason is that I found little to admire about the heroine. She is the type that goes around with gigantic ...

Night Hawk

If you read historical romance in order to learn history in a more congenial setting than a classroom, then Jenkins’ new book is for you. If you’re curious about marginalized groups in the settlement of the American West, then Jenkins’ book is for you. If you like feisty heroines clashing and ...

Angels Fall

Angels Fall is a book to get lost in – which is exactly what I did over a long holiday weekend. Featuring fascinating characters caught up in events they can’t control and set in a remote town in the majestic Wyoming mountains, this big, meaty story represents born storyteller Nora Roberts at he ...
