Several of you have asked we bring back our DIKlassic reviews. Great idea! I am currently reading Hunter’s By Possession and it is SO. GOOD. (This review first ran in August of 2000.) I’m a bit astonished Blythe only gave it a B+–although I haven’t finished the novel yet and the pacing may, by its end, cause me to think the book isn’t quite a DIK. So, even though this wasn’t a DIK for Blythe, it, thus far, is for me. […]
The question “What books are you looking forward to reading over the next couple of months?” is the sort of thing we love here at AAR. We’re always on the lookout for our next great read, so here are a few of the upcoming releases we’re keen to read in April and May.
The Girl With The Make-Believe Husband: A Bridgertons Prequel by Julia Quinn (30 May)

As summer comes to an end, I’ve been challenged to read a book with luscious love scenes. I immediately thought of Harlequin’s Blaze line, and grabbed Shiver by Jo Leigh, a 2010 release that is still available digitally. Though the story wasn’t quite as steamy as I’d expected, I still ended up with a sexy, fun read, and I’d give it a B.
My first recommendation to readers? Don’t judge this one by its cover. It’s a lot more offbeat and fun than that somewhat generic picture would suggest. After all, the hero not only owns a supposedly haunted inn; he also makes independent documentary films. The semi-reclusive comic strip writer known for her snarky humor didn’t strike me as a run of the mill character either.
Both lead characters are city folk who have no intention of leaving their usual environment, but they’ve ended up at a […]
There is absolutely no possible way that I can trim my favorite romance novels down to ten. Therefore, I am going to take a page from other reviewers’ entries and exempt those written in the 19th century (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell). I am also going to state that Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is a given, but because the story continues and the end has not yet been written, it will be excluded from my top 10 list. I am also going to exclude A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught, because Jenna included it her list and I would not want to be redundant. So…in no particular order and with the caveat that I could exchange some books on this list at any time, here is my qualified Top 10 list: […]
