All About Romance review (I’m a “Desert Isle Keeper”!)

by on Sep.06, 2013, under Author news, Reviews

I’m pleased and proud to report that reviewer Caz of the wonderful All About Romance site has reviewed Lord of Secrets and given it the site’s highest rating, “Desert Isle Keeper.”

The review says, “I found myself tearing up several times in the final section of the book – it was very emotional, but never melodramatic or over the top,” and gives Lord of Secrets “a whole-hearted thumbs up.” Click here to jump to the review.

Another early review–Lovey Dovey Books gives Lord of Secrets 5 doves out of 5. “The suspense of discovering David’s dark secrets make the romance that much sweeter, because through all the drama and emotional distress, readers will come to understand and truly care for these characters.”

Publisher’s Weekly Pick

by on Jul.06, 2012, under Author news, Reviews

I just discovered today that back when A Tryst With Trouble was supposed to come out in January of this year–specifically, in June, 2011–Publisher’s Weekly included it on their list of “Damsels Who Rescue Themselves” book picks. PW called Tryst “a passionate Regency romance debut.”

Here’s hoping the book will be released one day soon.

Ex Libris

by on Jun.24, 2012, under Reviews

On Friday, I posted about the review of Ruined by Rumor on Book Lovers Inc. That review was written by Stella, and her home blog is called Ex Libris. I hope you’ll check her blog out here–not just to see how pretty her review of my own personal book looks on her site (and it does! Her rating system even calls the book “Novellus Superbus!”) but because all Stella’s reviews are thoughtful and informative.

Just click the blog name above to jump to the Ex Libris site, or click anywhere in this sentence. Thanks again for the insights you provide to authors and readers, Stella!

Book Lovers Inc. review

by on Jun.22, 2012, under Reviews

Ruined by Rumor received 4.5 stars in a charming and thoughtful review on the Book Lovers Inc. site today.  “Despite the humour and wittiness Ruined by Rumor was an angsty Regency romance of the best kind: the type where the reader is constantly biting their nails and having trouble swallowing as they are too anxious to see how the hero and heroine will finally find their way to each other.”  The reviewer, Stella, even included a link to my Pinterest board.  Thanks so much for reading and reviewing, Stella!
