Review: Star-Spangled Bride by Iris Johansen

Star-Spangled Bride: A Loveswept Classic Contemporary Romance

May Contain Spoilers


While surfing the virtual shelves of the library, I came across this blast from the past.  Many moons ago, I devoured Loveswept romances like candy.  Some of my favorite series romance authors were published under this line; Janet Evanovich, Saundra Brown, Jennifer Crusie (I will NOT admit how much I paid for a few of her out of print  titles before they were available digitally), Kay Hooper.  I get giddy just thinking about how much I loved discovering these authors.  One of my favorite reads were Iris Johansen’s Sedikhan books.  I loved how the characters popped up throughout the books, and this was one of the first times I read books that had connecting characters.  I was only able to gobble a few of these up before I got distracted from my out of print book hunt (which is SO much easier now thanks to Google, Amazon, and eBay!)  When I saw that Star-Spangled Bride had been reissued in digital, and that it was available for check out, I snapped it up and ate it up.
