Review: The Rancher’s Marriage Pact by Kristi Gold

May Contain Spoilers

When it comes to Harlequins, I will read any of their series romances, and I especially can’t get enough of ranchers, cowboys, or rodeo stories.  The Rancher’s Marriage Pact at least delivered a rancher.  The cover is beautiful, and it’s the first book in Kristi Gold’s Texas Extreme series.  So I clicked the Borrow button at the library and hoped for the best.

Manga Review: Fatherhood Fever! by Yoko Hazuki

May Contain Spoilers

I decided to read Fatherhood Fever! because, really, who could resist that title?  I was expecting a cheese fest, and boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong.  This was a moving, intense story with beautiful art.  It is one of the best Harlequin manga I’ve read to date, and since I’ve read a lot, that’s saying something.  I wish I hadn’t read it, just so I could relive the discovery of this incredible title.

Manga Review: Mission: Make-Over by Sae Nanahoshi and Penny Jordan

May Contain Spoilers

I decided to read Mission: Make-Over because the cover is so cute.  Seriously, who could resist Lucianna’s happy expression, or Jake’s look of adoration?  And the background colors are bright and cheerful.  I also am a sucker for make-over stories, though I prefer when it’s the guy who gets the make-over. I had high hopes for this manga.

Review: Her Sexy Vegas Cowboy by Ali Olson

May Contain Spoilers

I love me my cowboy books, so when I saw Her Sexy Vegas Cowboy at the library, I knew it must be mine.  I’ll admit straight up that the Blaze line isn’t one of my favorites.  I far prefer Harlequin’s Desire line, though the American Romance series is my absolute favorite.  However, I was in the mood for a quick read, Vegas is one of my favorite vacation retreats, and cowboys?  Yeah, I thought I’d give this a spin.

Manga Review: Expecting Royal Twins! by Kaishi Sakura

May Contain Spoilers

My streak of enjoyable Harlequin manga continues! (And I was worried about this after the duds I read last week.)  I chose Expecting Royal Twins! because I have read Melissa McClone titles in the past, and since they usually manage to hit a sweet spot and almost make me cry, I thought it would be fun to read a manga adaptation of one of her books.  The cover is colorful and pretty, and that didn’t hurt the decision.

Manga Review: Marriage Material by Banana Sarusuberi

May Contain Spoilers

I decided to give Marriage Material a spin because I have enjoyed novels by Ally Blake in the past, and I was curious to see what a manga adaptation of one of her books would look like.  It looked great! I really enjoyed this one, and despite the cheesy cover, the interior art was beautiful.

Manga Review: The Dangerous Mr Ryder Part 1 & 2 by Masako Ogimaru

 

May Contain Spoilers

I latched onto The Dangerous Mr Ryder when I saw the cover for the second volume.  It’s really cute and it hinted at crossdressing.  Something I love, but most especially enjoy in a historical.  This was a fun, exciting read.  I loved the character designs, and thought Jack’s hair was particularly engaging.
