Hazard (Rockliffe #5) by Stella Riley

Review by Em Stella Riley’s writing – the period detail, the mannerisms, the settings – and wonderful storytelling – plots, dialogue, characters – are par excellence.  Her Rockliffe novels are particularly smart and engaging with multiple plots and storylines that run throughout the series, and feature a terrific cast of primary and secondary characters.  Hazard is no different – although...

A Duke in the Night (Devils of Dover #1) by Kelly Bowen

Review by Caz In the years since the publication of her début novel, Kelly Bowen has become an auto-read author and has a few books on my keeper shelf. Her writing is assured and intelligent, she comes up with intriguing, well thought-out plots, and her characters are engaging and often just that bit different to the norm for the genre....

VIRTUAL TOUR: The Trouble with True Love (Dear Lady Truelove #2) by Laura Lee Guhrke

Review by Lady Wesley This second installment in Laura Lee Guhrke’s Dear Lady Truelove series features the younger sister of Irene Deverill, the heroine of book one, The Truth About Love and Dukes. Clara Deverill is shy and retiring, the polar opposite of her sister who is off on her wedding trip with the Duke of Torquil. Irene – a...

RETRO REVIEW: Whitney, My Love (Westmorland Saga #2) by Judith McNaught

Review by Hollis Jade Having just closed the book (well, browser, it was an eBook) on Whitney, My Love, I’m left with so many feelings, some of them a little conflicted. I’d only just discovered Judith McNaught’s writing — quite literally — having read Kingdom of Dreams a few days ago but I couldn’t resist diving right into the second...

AUDIO REVIEW: Beguiled (Enlightenment #2) by Joanna Chambers – Narrated by Hamish McKinlay

Review by Em In real life (ha!), I’m a mom, wife and teacher. In my limited ‘me’ time, I read romance novels. And on those random (too few) afternoons when I have a car all to myself and no little ears listening in, I cue up romance on the Audible app; it’s a special treat and one I savor. The...

Beyond Scandal and Desire (Sins for All Seasons #1) by Lorraine Heath

Review by Lady Wesley Deliver me from revenge plots! I usually find them unpleasant and unbelievable. In the capable hands of Lorraine Heath, however, Mick Trewlove’s desire for revenge against his noble father becomes a moving story of love and courage, leading not only to his redemption but also the deliverance of those who have wronged him. Mick is the...

His Convenient Marchioness (Lords at the Altar #2) by Elizabeth Rolls

Review by Em As a romance fan and reviewer, I read a lot of books.  But I’ve only recently started reading Harlequin Historicals and finding new authors to enjoy (and sometimes binge).  Elizabeth Rolls is my newest discovery and based on His Convenient Marchioness, I foresee a long and happy relationship.   His Convenient Marchioness is a charming second chance love...

VIRTUAL TOUR: The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter by Mimi Matthews

Review by Em This is the second novel by Ms. Matthew’s that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing for RHR, and I enjoyed this one every bit as much as her first (The Lost Letter).  Unfortunately, despite my enjoyment, The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter suffers from much the same problem that plagued the earlier novel.  After the author introduces...

A Warriner to Tempt Her (Wild Warriners #3) by Virginia Heath

Review by Em The Wild Warriners aren’t quite as wild as Ms. Heath might like you to believe… but they are sexy as hell and they have a way with the ladies. In this third novel, featuring the ‘brainy’ one – Dr. Joe Warriner – Ms. Heath masterfully showcases her grasp of period medicine and the effect of trauma on...

A Treacherous Curse (Veronica Speedwell #3) by Deanna Raybourn

Review by Em Note:  This review contains spoilers for earlier books in the series. In A Treacherous Curse, Deanna Raybourn continues to detail the adventurous lives of heroine Veronica Speedwell, a professional lepidopterist, and her associate the Honorable Revelstoke (“Stoker”) Templeton-Vane, a scientist and natural historian.  If you are new to the series, you will be lost starting with this...
