Susan Napier’s “Reasons of the Heart” All around good story. From the background of the two to them meeting again and the odd circumstances of it to the inevitable fall in love, this book was fun and exhilarating to read. One of the few Harlequin's I kind of wish there was a sequel to. The … Continue reading Book 53: “Reasons of the Heart”
Vanessa Grant’s “Jenny’s Turn” Another one where I'd like to strangle the two characters because it would all be solved easily if they just spoke up instead of playing games. A decent story but I find it hard to believe a man would go to that extent after 5 years. The next book is: Susan … Continue reading Book 52: “Jenny’s Turn”
Sara Craven's "Outsider" Ok, I have a soft spot for stories that take place around horses. My only real complaint on this is that it's a short book. I think the author could easily have made a nice long novel out of it and possibly a movie. A side note about this and many other … Continue reading Book 51: “Outsider”
Sandra Field’s “Love in a Mist” No No NO, you're not supposed to fall in love with the person you slept with on vacation. >.< =) lol silly people doing silly things with silly mushy emotions. The next book is Sara Craven's "Outsider"
I'm powering through these short Harlequin books now! Sally Wentworth’s “Dishonourable Intentions” I pictured this male main character to look like Tom Selleck =D ... Classic tale of man determined to have sex, woman determined to have love. A part of me wished this story ended differently. Without giving away the end I will say, … Continue reading Book 49 “Dishonourable Intentions”
Marta Perry’s “Restless Hearts” A rather religious take on romance, certainly not steamy AT ALL. Still, a lovely story of a woman coming into her own and learning about her mother's family. Enjoyable. The next book is Sally Wentworth's "Dishonourable Intentions".
I read the following on my Holiday trip to Louisiana: Taylor Caldwell’s: “Maggie-Her Marriage” This book was written in the 1950's and you can tell. It was so blah and hard to get through. For a short book it took a lot longer to read then I thought it would. I pushed through it. Emma … Continue reading Book 43, 44, 45, 46, 47
Margaret Abbey’s “The Flight of the Kestrel” Another twist on the good pirate type story. The author created a graceful, lovely character who I really hoped would have a happy ending. I liked the tie in with Queen Elizabeth as well, fun. The next book is: Taylor Caldwell's: "Maggie-Her Marriage"
Maggi Charles’ “The Snow Image” This is one of my favorite beginnings to a romantic story that I've come across. I always remember how this one starts out. Also, the idea of the sexy librarian is provocative. I have read most of the romance novels in my little collection now with mostly only the smaller … Continue reading Book 41: “The Snow Image”
Brenda Joyce’s: “Innocent Fire” Mostly a good story, interesting time period in America and good descriptions. I was getting frustrated with her prudeness, I have to admit. Which likely is what the author was going for. The feeling of frustration for the girl and because of her at the same time. I'd read this one … Continue reading Book 40: “Innocent Fire”
