Review: Hard Time by Cara McKenna

Review: Hard Time by Cara McKenna

Okay, I chose to venture into something different with this read. I’ve read a few ‘prison’ romances, but usually after the guy was out or escaped or something. This was the first one I picked up when the guy is still doing his time. Call it curiosity or what have you, but I grabbed it up and settled in. For… Read more »

Review: Wounded Courage by S.M. Butler

Review: Wounded Courage by S.M. Butler

Okay, I tried, I really did.  I was so eager to read this book because of the blurb and I love military romances, but man…there’s only so much I could take with this heroine and the improbable plot that surrounds her. I pushed through to chapter eight which is about one-third of the way and had to give it up. … Read more »

Review: The Trouble With Harry by Katie MacAlister

Review: The Trouble With Harry by Katie MacAlister

I really didn’t bother looking beyond the fact that this was part of Katie MacAlister’s Noble series because I just knew it would be a gamer.  I have to say that I enjoyed this one more than book two, but I’m not sure if it quite nudges out book one in the favorite of the series.  Espionage, hellion children, bigamous… Read more »

Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I was eager to pick up the sequel.  I got a little surprise when it took place chronologically at the same time as the other story, but with different main characters.  It was refreshing to have the heroes being from the working class poor and the story set in the… Read more »

Review: Noble Metals by LA Witt

Review: Noble Metals by LA Witt

The Klondike Gold Rush just seems an addictive historical setting for me and I pay attention to little else about the story when I grab up books involving it.  Fortunately, this one also offers a go-to author, a delicate romance, an exciting adventure and a bit of steampunk dynamics to make it a rousing read. The story opens when scientist… Read more »

Review: Rush by Nyrae Dawn

New to me author, sports romance, coming of age and coming out tale?  Yeah, I was interested.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but yet I must have still formed some expectations because this one had a different feel to me and it took a while for me to settle in and get comfortable.  Once that happened, I was right… Read more »

Review: Always a Stranger by Amara Royce

Review: Always a Stranger by Amara Royce

I thought the idea of a book set against the backdrop of the Victorian Great Exhibition involving an English Earl and a Japanese Entertainer at the Exhibit was unique and I wanted to read it.  The story grabbed me from the beginning with the exotic fan dance scene and the mystery of Hana’s circumstances. This one is not listed as… Read more »

Review: Duke in Denial by Alexandra Ainsworth

Review: Duke in Denial by Alexandra Ainsworth

I have really been on a reading terror with the historical romances lately enjoying trying new authors and new series. This story had appeal with the taboo romance, spies, smugglers, ghosts and an awkward engagement. It was a debut novel for the author and I enjoyed the story so that I look forward to what comes next in the series…. Read more »
