One Royal Wedding and Four Happy Endings

I'm not sure whether it was a newsletter or a tweet that led me to The Baronet's Wedding Engagement (2017), by Jessica Hart, but promotions work.  This is the second story in a set of four overlapping stories, by different authors, and I went on to read two of the others. Max lives in a …

I’d really love to see you tonight: Healed with a Kiss

When I'm writing stories or essays, I listen to light classical music, or Enya. For other online work, such as these posts, my music of choice is soft rock from the 1970s and 1980s. As I started drafting this post, "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight," from 1976, started to play, and it seemed …

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 …
