Review: Frontier Want Ad Bride by Lyn Cote


May Contain Spoilers

Since we will soon see the end of Harlequin’s Love Inspired Historical line, I have been reading them as the library acquires them. There is always a waitlist for them, so I don’t understand why Harlequin is pulling the plug on the line, but it is what it is. I happened to be browsing the catalog when Frontier Want Ad Bride was added, so I was the first to check it out. Read more

Review: Cowboy Doctor by Rebecca Winters


May Contain Spoilers

This is the second book in Rebecca Winters Sapphire Mountains Cowboys that I’ve read.  I love the setting for this series, but I have the same problem I have with most Rebecca Winters’ books; the insta-love drives me nuts. I just don’t find it believable. It’s hard to trust someone with your heart after you’ve known them for a while, but after two days? Nope. I don’t buy it. However, Cowboy Doctor had enough other things going for it that I just accepted the insta-love and kept turning the pages.

Manga Review: Haikyu!! Vol 1 by Haruichi Furudate

May Contain Spoilers

I decided to give this a whirl because I see a lot of buzz about the series online, and because the library actually received a digital copy of volumes 1 and 2. Generally, I enjoy sports manga, though I will admit that volleyball is not my favorite sport. If not for Crimson Hero, one of my favorite, and vastly underrated, shoujo manga, I would have given this a pass. But there’s something about team work, and overcoming insurmountable odds, that makes sports manga alluring.

Review: The Cowboy’s Twin Surprise by Cathy McDavid

May Contain Spoilers

Cathy McDavid is one of my favorite Harlequin Western Romance authors.  Her characters are normal, down to earth characters. They could be my neighbors. Not a billionaire in the bunch. It’s so refreshing to read about regular, ordinary people, who make the best of things by working hard, celebrating family, and enjoying the small victories that make each day worth living.

Review: The Greek’s Pleasurable Revenge by Andie Brock

May Contain Spoilers

The Greek’s Pleasurable Revenge features two of my favorite tropes – revenge and second chance at love.  Parts of the story worked better than others, and I don’t think I ever warmed up to Lukas.  He started out a jerk, and he stayed a jerk far longer than he should have.  He also took every opportunity to jump to the wrong conclusion about Callie, and at times it was rage inducing.  More on that later.

Review: The Marshal’s Mission by Anna Zogg

May Contain Spoilers

Whelp, since the Harlequin Love Inspired Historical line is on the chopping block, I have been trying to read as many of them as I can.  I love the cover for The Marshal’s Mission, so this was bumped up on the TBR pile.  I love the time period and the Western setting, so it was no brainer that I would read this.

Lenora is a widow, trying to raise her young son, Toby, and work her ranch.  Her late husband was a gambler, a cheat, and an outlaw. She found him one night, dying of gun shot wounds, a bag of stolen money in his hands.  After burying the money, and her late husband, Lenora is determined to do what’s best for Toby and herself.
