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. To me, romance novels are about escape, fantasy in a somewhat relatable setting and entertainment. The Sheik’s Christmas Present is that exactly. 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

I am going to start by saying that I am a fan of the KGI series. Maya Banks is one of my favorite authors, so I was excited to finally have time to read another one of her books. But unlike the others before, this one left me bewildered, and somewhat shocked, questioning what I just read. I usually do not write spoilers in my reviews, but I will make

Strict family values with clearly defined gender roles and restrictions and past transgressions never make a good combination, especially if these family members are stubborn, and downright unable to see anyone else’s side of the story. 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

book review, books, Witness

I have been blessed to have received an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) of the following book via NetGalley: Witness by Caroline Mitchel took me by total surprise. Normally, I am not a fan of books who not only switch the point of view in the narrative but also change from third-person to first-person, as well as past and present. This could have made a very  confusing book if Caroline Mitchel would  not

Before I get into the story, I will have to warn you.  Her Hopes And Dreams contains a realistic description of PTSD, as suffered by a Veteran, and domestic violence, and the aftermaths of such abuse. Most contemporary romance novels are light in their subject matter, meddling mothers, class differences, or other obstacles finds the two main characters within the pages, keeping them apart until they finally get together.  In this case,

contemporary romance, book review, What You Do To Me

This adorable, a little quirky, yet steamy contemporary romance novel, took a minute to hook me completely. At first, the main male character Sam does not come across as the most charming person, indeed rather dense, and full of himself.  Yet, he is a character one should not judge too quickly, as he develops depth. The female lead of What You Do To Me, Haley, on the other hand, was likable
