Review of “A Gentleman’s Game” by Theresa Romain

A Gentleman’s Game is a very different kind of romance novel.  While it takes place firmly within the Regency Period, it is worlds away from any other Regency novel.  First off, the hero is the younger son of a minor aristocrat whose title only goes a few years back (rather than all those Dukes that …

Review of “The Other Daughter” by Lauren Willig

Last week, I started a free trial of Audible.com and decided to use the opportunity to “read” Willig’s standalone novel.  I love her Pink Carnation novels and since this took place in the 1920’s I was ecstatic.  I don’t know if I built it up in my head since I’d waited so long for it, …

Review of “Reckless” by Kimberly Kincaid

Reckless is the first book Ms. Kincaid’s new series (Rescue Squad) and I believe it is a spinoff of her Pine Mountain series as it features characters introduced in the last book.  I’m really glad that I took a chance on this author because I’m quickly becoming addicted to her books (thankfully, Netgalley helps me with …

Review of “I’ll Be There” by Samantha Chase

I did it again.  I read another Samantha Chase and hoped for a different outcome.  I know.  I know.  A lot of people say doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity (just fyi, insanity is a legal term, which is determined based off of …

Review of “His Dream Role” by Shannyn Schroeder

I’ve been waiting to read this book for two months.  Seriously.  Two months.  It was the first of the Hot and Nerdy books that I saw on Netgalley and after getting it and the other two, I was really looking forward to the day I got to sit down with it.  I wish it was …

Review of “The Lady Who Lived Again” By Thomasine Rappold

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I requested The Lady Who Lived Again, but I am sure that I did not get it, whatever it was.  Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t a bad book.  I’m just confused as to what it is.  At times, it feels like it wants to be a paranormal and …

Review of “The Chase” by Brenda Joyce

I first read The Chase in the summer of 2003.  My brother and I had flown out to California to spend our vacation with our dad.  I was only here a few weeks before I stumbled across this book in a Walgreens in San Jose.  It was one of three books I bought there that summer. …

Review of “One Wild Winter’s Eve” by Anne Barton

I just spent the last four days trying to get through One Wild Winter’s Eve by Anne Barton, which I started late Saturday night after quickly DNF’ing Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep (I didn’t read enough of it to really write a review–just know that it wasn’t for me).  I first chose this book …

Review of “What Happens Under the Mistletoe” by Various

What Happens Under the Mistletoe is the new Christmas anthology featuring novellas by Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, Candace Camp, and Meredith Duran.  I’ve heard of all of these authors, but I’ve only read Candace Camp.  Each book involves the magic of Christmas and mistletoe.  As with all anthologies, some of the novellas are stronger (Sweetest …

Review of “I’ll Never Let You Go” by Mary Burton

The other day, I stepped out of my comfort zone with a romantic suspense novel written by an author I’ve never heard of before.  If you read my post about why I usually just read historical romance novels, then you know why I don’t usually do that.  I’ve just gotten a little to cynical when …
