Cheryl Holt’s JILTED BRIDES Trilogy and Giveaway!

For the past few years, I’ve been writing linked series, where there is a common theme that runs through all the books.  The theme resolves at the end of the final novel.  Over the years, I would always hear from readers that—when they finished one of my novels—they wished it hadn’t ended.  With the new […]

Why Romantic Suspense by Kat Martin

I love novels that include both romance and suspense/thriller elements.  I like the extra depth it gives the story.  From the start, I envision the book being as much about the developing relationship between the hero and heroine as solving the suspense/thriller mystery.  There is intrigue in both.  How will the protagonists extricate themselves from […]

4.5 Star Review WHAT SHE KNEW by Gilly Macmillan

Posted  January 31, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

WHAT SHE KNEW (aka Burnt Paper Sky) is the debut psychological thriller by Gilly Macmillan. It takes place in an area the author has lived in and knows well, giving the reader a strong sense of place. I look forward to Ms. Macmillan’s next book, THE PERFECT GIRL. In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s […]

3 Star Review: A Rose in the Storm by Brenda Joyce

Posted  July 8, 2013  by  Teresa Spreckelmeyer

A ROSE IN THE STORM by New York Times Bestselling author Brenda Joyce is without a doubt, a bonafide “Epic” love story. Unfortunately, for me, Alexander and Margaret’s story was a little too much “Epic” and not enough romance. Set in the midst of the chaotic struggle for the crown of Scotland between Robert the […]

5 Star Review: In Capable Arms by Sarah Kovac

Posted  October 25, 2013  by  Donna McBroom-Theriot

I haven’t quite finished IN CAPABLE ARMS, but what I have read is outstanding. I am definitely giving this book a five star review. IN CAPABLE ARMS, is written from the heart with a deep-felt honesty that by-passes so many people. Sarah Kovac was dealt a harsh hand by being born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), a rare congengenital birth defect, but […]

Romancing the Past and THE LADY WHO SAW TOO MUCH giveaway

Posted  June 22, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

I write historical romance set in Victorian America, so I consider it my job to “romance the past.”  For every aspect of Victorian life I find unappealing, there’s one that strikes a chord—and my romantic sensibilities.  I can’t help imagining myself between the pages of my books, living back in the days about which I […]
