I had the pleasure of finding Lydia Dare’s Regency Vampire Trilogy series last year.   It had three elements that I love: historical romance, werewolves and vampires.  I fell in love and bought every book of this series and Dare’s the Westford Wolves series.  I just now got back into this […]

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

14 February 2012 Jackie 5

When it comes to historical fiction, I always recommend the same novel – Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The seventh novel, An Echo in the Bone, came out in 2009, and while I have a copy of it (actually two copies), I still haven’t had a chance to open it.  Don’t […]

27 December 2011 Nikki R 5

After the string of not so great books I’ve had, I was afraid That Thing at the Zoo by James Tuck would be another to add to my give away pile.  I’m happy to announce, I was wrong about the book and it will be joining my expanding library. Right […]

Boelyn: Tudor Vampire by Cinsearae S.

13 April 2011 Lisa 2

One of the things I’ve been hearing people talk about over the past year or so are the “monster mash-up” books that have been growing in popularity. It sounded amusing to me, so when Jackie asked if I’d like to read and review Boleyn: Tudor Vampire by Cinsearae S., I […]

Wicked Becomes You by M. Duran

2 October 2010 Jennifer 0

I’ve said it before, the reason that I didn’t read historical romances in the past was because of how horribly antiquated I thought they were. I’ve been proven wrong time and time again though. Historical romance isn’t always the cliche that some people make it out to be. In fact, […]
