Harder to Love a Rich Man: Billionaire’s Forgiveness

Billionaire's Forgiveness is the rest of the story started in Billionaire’s Love, which I just reviewed. Yes, I'm reviewing another recently released book. The world is full of wonders. Brenda Pearson took a couple of years to put this together, but since I only just read her first one, I was spared waiting. The opening is …

Pride and Other Worlds: The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic, by Emily Croy Barker, is a 2013 fantasy novel. As I said when I reviewed The Demon's Daughter, many stories marketed under the umbrella of fantasy have the superficial aspects of the genre, but not the core elements. I'm happy to say that Guide to Magic has the …

Editing Needed: Stranded with the Suspect

Stranded with the Suspect is a 2018 Harlequin Intrigue from Cindi Myers. Yes, I'm reviewing a book that is less than a year old. It happens sometimes, and since it is a current novel I'll be more attentive to not revealing spoilers. The title is misleading, since no one is stranded with a suspect. The …

We Should Have Talked About this Years Ago: The Sheriff’s Pregnant Wife

I'll admit being hard to please. Sometimes the titles are too vague, while other times they are too specific. The Sheriff's Pregnant Wife sounds more like a working title than a release, but I must admit it's a better working title than I use (Romance 1, Romance 2, etc.) This is a 2007 Harlequin from …

A Family of Her Own

There must be a rule that Harlequin's have generic titles. A Family of Her Own is a title that could apply to any number of romances, and it's unfortunate that Brenda Novak's lively story is saddled with a bland title. And the latest cover is more generic than the original. A Family of Her Own …

One Unashamed Night

One Unashamed Night, by Sophia James, is a Harlequin historical, first published in 2010. The cover includes the tagline "The Undoing of a Lady," but this is selling the sizzle. The story open in the English countryside, on a dark and snow stormy night, in 1826. Lord Taris Wellingham, suffering from failing eyesight, is traveling …

Unlike the old doctor-nurse formula (A Match for Sister Maggy, A Girl Named Rose), this is doctor-doctor - equality, right down to the specialty. Cat and Dominic are both emergency room physicians.

The Texan’s Baby

The Texan's Baby is a 2014 Harlequin American Romance by Donna Alward.  Like many romances, this is part of a series featuring the consecutive pairing up of siblings (Texas Rodeo Barons). I am getting a little weary of being introduced to single or recently married siblings, but in this case each book is written by …
