4-0 out of 5 stars Meet Stephanie Plum's Ancestress & Enjoy A Fun Romance Too!
Long before author Janet Evanovich turned Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter extraordinaire, loose on the citizens of Trenton, NJ, she wrote 12 short romance novels, all screwball comedies with happy endings, some involving just a tad of mystery/suspense. These small treats, (like a piece of good chocolate, they lift your spirits), were published by the Loveswept line between the years 1988 and 1992. I have read and enjoyed them all - but then I love almost everything Ms. Evanovich writes. "Ivan Takes A Wife" is one of my favorites.
3-0 out of 5 stars Early Evanovich is a charmer
Janet Evanovich is better known for her immensely popular, offbeat series of Stephanie Plum novels (beginning with "One For the Money"). Ms Evanovich broke into the business by writing romance novels, and "Ivan Takes a Wife" is not only a charming example of this genre, but anindication of where the character of Stephanie might have originated. Forthe Stephanie of this novel is not a fragile, gentle flower but a retiredcop with a habit of falling (off hillsides, roofs, and boats) and an sassyattitude. Janet includes trademarks her fans will recognize and appreciate,from the steamy sexual situations to the offbeat, delightful supportingcharacters, and even throws in a bit of a mystery to keep the story movingalong. If you have the good fortune to find this novel, enjoy it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A story set in Scotland? I'm there!
I'm a huge fan of all things Scottish...so when I found A Kingdom of Dreams which is not only set in Scotland but has other very scottish scenes (I won't give details so I don't spoil it for anyone)I was VERY excited. I started reading at 5pm and made my husband fend for himself that night and stayed up all night to finish it. It was so worth it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Captive of Your Boredom.
Sadly, I have to say I was gravely dissapointed with this book. I had even read the previous reviews and I thought they were just bored with Johanna Lidnsey and the book wasnt bad itself, but alas, it was.
2-0 out of 5 stars I've seen far better from Lindsey, but also far worse
I love Johanna Lindsey. I will read anything that she writes, even if I do occasionally get burned. That being said, this book burned me badly.The hero and heroine have little, if any chemistry.The story lacks depth. The action/turning point is virtually nonexistent. And even the bad guy doesn't do anything to make him so terrible. Really, it's a waste of your time.

This is one you'll cherish. The story of Jordan and Alexandra is powerful and moving. You'll love every minute of it. Not a dull chapter in the book. Happy reading.

If I could rate this book a 10+, I would.

3-0 out of 5 stars Forgiveness is a hard thing
I loved the characters of this well written love story. Zach and Julie are beautiful and vivid. I did not give this book 5 stars because I do not believe Julie would do what she does to Zach, maybe lose faith but not that big of a betrayal. I'm actually having a hard time forgiving her, I don't believe Zach could either. But I did not write the book, so oh well. Still the author is awesome in her detail. By the way Judith, lets wrap up Paul's story please, poor guy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great BOOK!
I loved this book! This is the best romance/mystery book I have ever read! I could not put it down! Judith McNaught tells a beautiful story!

5-0 out of 5 stars Stick with this one...the last 150 pages are the best!
I was so thoroughly amused with Stephen after he referred to her as a 'little bitch' when she ditched him at the altar. ha ha ha. IT only got better from there. The story starts off good, your typical romance, middle of the story has a lull, and I was getting sort of bored, but then she ditches him at the altar and it picks up speed again. Overall, you know its a good romance when you laugh out loud and have to repeatedly re-read a good part (you like it that much). I was also very touched, which doesn't happen often, I think the last book I cried on was Knight in Shining Armor by McNaught's buddy, Jude Deveraux. I"ll have to go get the back story on Whitney My Love now since developing such respect for this author and her writing style. The only thing that bugs me is I'm not crazy about 'fiery red heads' I kept feeling all along Sherry should have been a brunette. Quirky, I know. This author also did a very good job writing tactful, yet HOT love scenes. Was really worth the wait. The last third of this book was just excellent. Great read. BRAVO!

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful lovestory
I hated to see the book end.Stephen and Sherry were made for each other.I was a little disappointed though, that the 'real' Charise was never confronted at the end for her bold faced lies to Stephen and about how her elopment on the ship came about and how Sherry deliberatly deceived him.I would have liked to seen her put in her place by the two of them. She kinda dropped off the face of the earth after she lied to Stephen. This is the first book I have read in the series.I didn't realize it was the third in a sequel until I was into it, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I actually liked the emotions that the 'hardened' Stephen brought out in me.I enjoyed watching him get angry and cold.It made it that much more of a challenge for it all to work out for the good!!!!! (which we all knew it would anyway.....) I enjoyed the book and will try to read the first two now!

4-0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars
I liked the book but found Stephen a little bit too cruel at the end considering all of his deceitfulness.I would have run away too.He wasn't nearly as evil as Clayton in "Whitney, My Love" but still not very understanding. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not one of the best or brightest but still loved...
Although I love all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, I couldn't really get into this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars Two left me humming for more--Two left me wondering-Is it over?
Darkfest by Amanda Ashley and Phantom Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon were great.I loved them.However, Under Her Spell by Maggie Shayne and A Wulf's Curse by Ronda Thompson made me want to skip paragraphs and whole pages just to get it over with.

4-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for the Sherrilyn Kenyon Offering- ORIGINAL!
WOW! The novella written by Sherrilyn Kenyon was a standout in my mind- it opens with action and twists and turns and fantasy adventure right out of a video game or dark fantasy movie- then wham! We find out the heroine is dreaming....her dark and disquieting nightmares lead her on a journey into a fantasy realm of Greek Gods and mythology and tormented immortals that really captured my imagination. Her hero is a dark soul who wins fair maiden's heart by trickery and is punished for it....

This is another Judith McNaught to add to your keeper shelf. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Jerk Gets the Girl
Speaking strictly from the romantic aspect of this book ~ it wasn't believable.The plot was a good one, but the lack of character development destroyed any and all hopes for a compelling story.
4-0 out of 5 stars For the romantic at heart
O.K. First a disclaimer. I understand the many reviewers that complianed about believability and the fact that the characters are cut-out types from romances. With that said, I must say that this book is still a great romance for the romantic at heart. The very definition of romance is that it represents an idealized vision of something. With this is mind, most contemporary ( or I should say written withing the last 10 years) have moved away from what was considered classic romances. I think that is great because I Do look for believability in romances that are recently written. But this book represents a time when the dark and selfish hero was attractive because the heroine could reform him. Nick is a gorgeous business man. It is only implied that he is a playboy because the book is manipulated so close to Lauren's perspective. What we do know that he is damaged due to being rejected by his mother. Even though I would probably detest this plotting device if someone NEW wrote it, it is a standard in classic romances. Lauren then represents innocence (hence her youth and virginity), an innocence that can redeem Nick's clouded vision. I Know I Know "The misunderstanding" comes up in the plot to ruin the day but you know its coming. What I am trying to say is that when you read a McNaught (all of her books just about have the same plot)expect this. Thus I think that this book is for the truely romantic-- someone who can release disbeleif and embrace a romantic story. It is brief, so if you hate it, then you know that McNaught is not for you.
3-0 out of 5 stars A relationship that can only end in divorce.

3-0 out of 5 stars Memories from the Old Days...
Back in the days when I was a burgeoning teenager, my friends and I would eat up romance novels and reminisce with them over the gooey love.Well, I've grown and I've certainly grown out of many of the romance novels, because love isn't like it is in these books.Judith McNaught was one of those writers I remembered reading a little of.My favorite book of hers is Almost Heaven and its one of the five remaining romance novels cluttering my bookshelves.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but huge flaw
This book was good, long, but moved along well.There was, however, a major flaw.Meredith was a spineless, weak character.Matt was great and after she rejected him for the 2nd or 3rd time and didn't trust him, I thought he deserved someone better than her.Her father did horrible things to her and Matt and continued to treat her like dirt her whole life and yet she defended him continually and only 2 times she stood up to him (mildly) she relented and forgave him immediately.He was a despicable person and the things he did did not show any love towards her, and yet she stood by him!I guess she got that from her mother, who after being treated horribly by her husband and thrown out of the house and 30 years later she still forgave him and loved him!Not realistic.She didn't care she was forced from her daughter's life and made no attempts to contact her daughter and make amends.I prefer my romances to have heroes and heroines who are both likable.

5-0 out of 5 stars impulse
I dont usually write reviews, but after i read this book i was compelled to express its impact. i have never, in all the hundreds of books i have read of all genres, been torn between the desire to throw the book onto the ground and stamp my emotional frustration onto it and the almost otherwordly inability to let go of it. she created a world inside of her book, and i felt as if i were living in that reality- sometimes as an irate observor, but there were also times when i knew about as much as the characters did. i suppose the word im looking for is real.

This is the last of the Bar Cynsters series but there are still several in the Cynster series after this.This is Lucifer and Phyllida's story.When Lucifer goes to visit his mentor Horatio he finds him murdered in his own home.Bending over the body, Lucifer is knocked unconscious and taken in by local magistrate and his daughter Phyllida.We discover she was also in the house searching for a friend's missing letters when Lucifer discovers the body.We later find the murderer was also in the house and thinks Phyllida can identify him because she saw his hat.There are several near misses on her life and we realize Horatio's murderer is now after her.Lucifer makes it his mission to protect her and also realizes she is his mate.He pursues a relationship with her but it kind of takes second precedence to the investigation.
3-0 out of 5 stars Hot Love Scenes
`All about love' by Stephanie Laurens is a terrific historical romantic mystery. The basic story is about a solving a murder and the romance of the strong-willed female (Phyllida Tallent) and the man who never wants to marry (Alasdair Cynster aka Lucifer). The romance is very heated and descriptive. This is# 6 of The Bar Cynster Series but can stand-alone. If you enjoy romance based around the historical England than you will enjoy this book. I would also recommended`A Loving Scoundrel' by Johanna Lindsey same style but better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad ending for the Bar Cynster series
This is the 6th and final novel in the Bar Cynster series.

Editorial Review

Lieutenant Seth Buchanan is investigating a murder scene when the supposed victim walks through the front door. Grace Fontaine is even more beautiful in person than she is in the portrait over her mantel, and Seth knows that she means trouble. But he's a cautious man, long accustomed to guarding his heart, and he's determined to continue the practice. Grace, however, has other ideas; Seth is the man she's been waiting for through all the long, lonely years she has spent as an unbelievably rich, impossibly beautiful child and woman. Thrown together by Seth's determination to solve the murder, the theft of three incredible diamonds, and the imminent threat to Grace's safety, the two struggle with the passion and the bond that pulls them together. Nora Roberts is a master at spinning a tale, and she doesn't miss a beat in this novel of love, murder, mystery, and obsession. ... Read more

He was standing face-to-face with a dead woman... and she was holding a gun. Lieutenant Seth Buchanan's homicide investigation - and his heart - were thrown into turmoil when Grace Fontaine turned up very much alive... and in possession of one of the huge blue diamonds known as the Stars of Mithra.

As always Nora Roberts is superb and the Stars of Mithra series is a fantastical tale told in three books.

5-0 out of 5 stars The First and not the last.
I got Once and Always by Judith McNaught almost by chance.I have never read her work before and I can say now that this won't be the last.In fact I have a couple more of her books on order already.I have read the reviews and seen that others think this is not her best and if this is true I can't wait to read the others.I loved this book.I have re-read it a couple of times already.The second half of the book is better than the first but without the beginning the end wouldn't be as good.Isn't that always true.Anyway I loved it and would say anyone who likes a good read should give it a go.

3-0 out of 5 stars I love McNaught but this one just isn't my favorite....
I agree with most of the reviews about this book.It is so much darker and I had a hard time letting go of the depressing feelings even after the book ended.The end when he believes her to be dead (I won't ruin it for you) was such a poignant moment that it almost moved this book up to 4 stars instead of 3.
2-0 out of 5 stars Didn't care for this one......
I usually like Judith McNaught and fully expect that the big misunderstanding will occur which has us biting our nails but this one was too much for me.Jason was a jerk!I know once you found out about his story, there was some sympathy there but not enough.I liked Tory even though she was way too understanding of Jason....especially after the wedding night. I also didn't like that he saw his mistress after the wedding even though he 'loved' her then.I just couldn't get past his treatment, even if it was accepted for the time period.I was actually hoping for Andrew to come to England and take her away and I was so sad that she didn't go back with him.In a romance novel I don't like disliking the 'hero' but couldn't help it on this one.I will read her other books but this one was not a keeper in my eyes. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Sandra Brown's BEST NOVEL Ever (In My Opinion).Don't Miss Out!
This is one of my favorite Sandra Brown books along side of French Silk and Where There's Smoke.Perfect read for the beach, pool, or vacation.If you're a romance fan, DO NOT PASS THIS UP!It's a page-turner from beginning to end.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time!
I bought this book because of the great reviews, but I have to say this book was awful and a waste of time to read!I kept reading thinking it has to get better, and it didn't get that way until the last chapter (of course).It was very depressing to me to read about so many characters who had such selfish and mean personalities (except for the one main character, Schyler) and were horrible in the way they treat one another.This whole book had nothing but abuse and unkindness through the entire thing! This was not a "romance" on any terms for me - but that is my opinion.Choose one of her other novels instead - like Bittersweet Rain!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Mary Balogh reconfirms her reputation as a superlative writer of Regency romance in this well-drawn, ultimately moving love story between a war hero's widow and her longtime friend. Nathaniel Gascoigne knew Sophie as a colleague's supportive wife when he fought in the Peninsular War. Now, meeting the widowed Sophie in London after a long separation, Nat is surprised by her unexpected agreement that they share discreet lovemaking, no strings attached. But a secret involving Sophie's former marriage has left her vulnerable to a blackmailer, and just when the satisfaction she offers to Nat makes him most eager to prolong their dalliance, Sophie decides she has no choice but to break it off. Nat's gradual insights into Sophie's character, and the couple's struggles to act honorably yet remain true to themselves, are beautifully handled. As a delightful contrast, there's the barbed repartee between Nat's independent-minded cousin and his marriage-shy best friend, which develops into a witty and satisfying secondary romance. Balogh's masterful command of the Regency period, and her skill at dramatizing subtle nuances of character, endow her books with rare and rich rewards. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An adult story very well written.
This book I think is Mary Balogh's change from young virgin stories to adult romance.If you are looking for a fast easy read, this book isn't it.The heroine Sophie is a young (28) independent widow (spoiler) who is being blackmailed and embarks on an affair with a friend Nathaniel whom she has always loved, but because she was married and has morals she didn't dwell or act on those feelings.They meet again after 3 years and Nathaniel see's Sophie as more then just "good old Sophie."It a deep and thoughtful tail and you want to read every word to savior the atmosphere.I really enjoyed it and hope other "adult women" will too.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cold Feeling
Balogh is a great writer and I've read several of her books, but this one just left me a little cold. Her books tend to be more harsh and realistic than other regencies which adds to her credibility, but sometimes tarnishes the romantic effect.
3-0 out of 5 stars An OK read
This book is so . . . quiet.It is not as emotionally intense as I would expect from a Mary Balogh book.The characters are likeable, but I found them to be neither engaging nor memorable.Sophie, the heroine, hides behind a "good old girl" mask, but dislikes it when others perceive her as being just one of the boys.Nathaniel is, well, boring.Besides wanting to fulfill his duty to his female relatives and finally being free, and possessing a lovely smile, I don't feel like he has anything else to boast of.Like the two characters, their love story is just too placid and uneventful.If Sophie didn't attend the wedding at Nathaniel's country estate, would they have confessed their love for each other?I think not.I feel that Sophie would have been just fine living without Nathaniel, just like she told herself.She wouldn't have had love in her life, but she would have been happy.Considering this, the story just didn't work for me.I did enjoy the secondary romance, though, between Nat's cousin Lavinia and his friend Eden--to quote Nat, these two had the most "amazing" conversations. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmm - not as good as the first 2 stories in the series
I'm not sure what to write about The Perfect Stranger and am a little at a loss about how to give it a fair star rating.I've decided on 3 stars, having initially given it 2.This is a road, cabin and "big secret" story.These are three things that almost inevitably annoy me in romantic fiction - admittedly a matter of personal taste.And, I have to say I thought Anne Gracie was running out of steam in this, the third instalment of stories about the Merridew sisters.Frankly, the fact that Faith Merridew had eloped and had a bigamous marriage and then was wandering alone on the beaches of northern France was a little to far-fetched for me - particularly as the previous books were not so unrealistic.
4-0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 - 4 stars...sweet, uplifting tale of unexpected love...with a touch of mysticism
From the shards of shattered dreams, springs the sweet pairing of two tenderhearted souls.The story begins in France when "perfect stranger" Nicholas Blacklock rescues a tattered and desperate Faith Merridew from imminent gang rape.Faith has been alone on the road for days, having fled her musician "husband" of one month when she discovers he is already married.Faith eloped from England with this man, and now she is stranded in a foreign country, friendless, and recently robbed of her belongings.Moreover, she is a ruined woman who no decent man will want to marry.The next thing we know, Nick proposes that he marry Faith - albeit in name only - so that she can reclaim her reputation.She will then return alone to England, and he will continue on to Spain on a secret mission.Faith is reluctant to wed someone she has known for only a day. However, he is well-bred, affluent, a former army officer, and seems kind.And her circumstances are dire, so she agrees, and they wed the next day.Needless to say, "in name only" is sorely tested and fails miserably when Faith persuades Nick to let her join him.Yet he refuses to speak of love and is clearly distressed about something in the future.Faith desperately wants to help Nick, and wants to build a true marriage and have his child.Can true love triumph for this troubled twosome?
3-0 out of 5 stars Good writer, but couldn't sustain sexual tension
I think that Gracie is a talented writer. As the other reviewers stated, the story is quite a page turner. I was enthralled until page 150. As you can probably guess, that is when the protagonists have sex. Unfortunately, Gracie doesn't continue to keep the sexual tension alive - their relationship is just plain boring after that. I think she had them jump in the sack too quickly. Gracie would have kept my interest better had she prolonged that aspect of their journey. To be fair, maybe I would have cared more about the characters if I had read the other books in the series. On its own, however, this book starts out promising but putters out and dies. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Haven't I read this somewhere before??
First, I would like to address M. Garland who didn't care for this book and wasn't sure she would read any more. Don't let this one book influence your opinion of a really wonderful author. I've read all of Julia London's books (save for the Highlander series because I'm just not into that sort of thing)and this is my least favorite.She wrote Devil's Love and Wicked Angel and then the Rogues series and they were all really, really good.Even her contemporaries are worth a read.
5-0 out of 5 stars WAY better than I expected......
I am so glad I bought this.I was hesitant to read this due to the overwhelming reviews that said this book was not as good as her past novels.I must say that Julia London does not disappoint in this one.I laughed, I cried, I felt all the emotions I felt in her first novel, The Devil's Love.I can't wait to read the next installment in the series.For the rest of you who think that this was not "up to par", I think that maybe you should have started with Abbey and Michael's story and read her books in order.Then maybe, there might have been a true appreciation for this book.LOVED IT!!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Heart Breaking Love Story
Most of this novel was like watching a train wreck that I just couldn't stop reading. There was no humor and little romance just two sad people searching for love.Just not my favorite novel - I would pass. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!
Celeste Bradley creates unforgettable characters and wonderful plots, and yes, great love scenes, which I'm sure isn't a comfortable process for an author.Marcus is a wonderful hero (spy)in this book (in his secondary role in Dane's story, he was rather meak and almost a fop, in my opinion) but here he is all man, handsome, funny and romantic.Just a great story.Julia was great, although I thought her visit to Clara should have been done differently.There was no reason Julia had to enter Clara's house as she did, but I'll admit, I loved the way Dalton came to his wife's aid - in his usual romantic way.
5-0 out of 5 stars 4 and a half stars but definitely worth the read.
Of all the Royal Four books so far - this one has been my favorite (but I have a feeling I will love the next one due out in August).In my opinion - the Royal 4 books still aren't as addictive as the Liar's club books - and I love the tension between the two clubs that runs throughout both series. :)
4-0 out of 5 stars Godiva not Hersheys
As a reader, I have always approached this genre as my brain chocolate; wonderful for the soul, not to be considered nutritious. When I want an amazing ride through never-never land, I read Celeste Bradley. Her Liars and Royal Four series is always packed with great adventure and plot but *most* importantly, very seductive love scenes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! I couldn't put it down
This sequel to "The Twentieth Wife" is outstanding. Both novels should be required reading for anyone who is interested in South Asian history. As a graduate student of South Asian history, I was stunned at how historically accurate it is. I can also state that there are very few novels about Mughal India. It is wonderful that this novel is so easy to read that it flows.
5-0 out of 5 stars A sweeping historical saga of a powerful woman
Set in 17th Century India, this sequel to The Twentieth Wife continues the story of Mehrunnisa, the beloved wife of the Emperor.It tells the tale of her power and how she manages to actively participate in a man's world. She's very political as well as beautiful and it helps that her husband adores her.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great read!
I have a love affair with historical romance novels, and "The Feast" doesn't disappoint.The writer has you imagining all the machinations of the Indian court of the 1600's, along with rooting for the proto-feminist of the story, Mehrunnisa, the 20th wife of the Emperor.I also enjoyed Sundaresan's lead-in novel, "The Twentieth Wife". ...

2-0 out of 5 stars I would pass.....
The Charmer (Liar's Club) by Celeste Bradley was terrible. I found myself half-way through the book skimming and skipping parts - just to get to the end. Collis Termayne was a great character in the early novels but lacked something in this one.
3-0 out of 5 stars First Half of Book Was Tedious
Collis was indeed charming, and Rose was fantastic, a perfect heroine, but the telling of the story through the first half was tedious and uninteresting. I found it interesting that all of the Liar and Royal Four stories took place in the same year, 1813.That could have been a disaster but the author pulled it off very well.I've never read another series with that many books in it, where the time line was so close.Well done.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best of the first 4 books
Finally Bradley delivers a story that has engaging plot and characters that mostly stay true to themselves in the end. The conclusion and feeling of a well-deserved romance is delivered in a logical fashion with this story (unlike the first 3 novels that took an abrupt turn midway through and became an entirely different story later).
