book review, romance, contemporary romance novel

I usually like Leslie North’s books. They are perfect contemporary short novels, to read when you want to escape, and don’t think about the real world. She builds worlds you can get lost in, and her characters have depth and charisma. Not with Her Ruthless Russian. I am not sure what happened, but this novel felt nothing but rushed, the plot squeezed together as if exploring it in more details was too

Book Review: The Sheikh's Christmas Present by Leslie North

If you are looking for realism, you might want to consider reading another book. Actually, if you are looking for realism in romance novels in general, you are reading the wrong genre.

An entertaining ride, that features charming characters who are trying to make the best out of

Today, I want to share with you my thoughts on Happily Evan After by Michelle. F. Irwin. What a unique, and adorable story! Imagine that, after you died, and you are assigned to become a cupid? After years of working as this mystical being, you come across the reincarnation of the woman you used to love, and she is your newest “client”, and you are assigned to find her a

This is what the main character Arabella in Can’t Stop Loving You by Miranda Liasson has to deal with when Roman comes back into her life unexpectedly. He is the said transgression, and with
