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.

Review: The Sheikh’s Bought Wife by Sharon Kendrick

May Contain Spoilers

I did not get along with this book.  I thought the hero, Zayed, was a complete and utter douche.  He learns that in order to inherit land for his kingdom, he needs to marry.  He doesn’t want to marry because he’s too busy sleeping around, enjoying the pleasures of women to settle for just one.  So he figures that if he marries for six months, and then has the marriage annulled, he will have fulfilled his obligations and can get back to the business of sowing his wild oats.

Review: Pony Express Courtship by Rhonda Gibson

Review: His Amish Teacher by Patricia Davids

May Contain Spoilers

This was a quick, pleasant read that had a touch of mystery.  My biggest gripe was that there was too much telling, instead of showing, especially when it came to the Amish way of life and Amish philosophy.  The dry, matter of fact dialog during these infodumps did not hold my attention.  Otherwise, the characters were likeable enough, and while the story won’t stick with me for long, it did keep me entertained for a few hours.
