Historical Romance Review: The Silver Devil by Teresa Denys

I’ve put off posting an analysis of Teresa Denys’ first book, The Silver Devil, for a long time because I didn’t quite know how to critique it. If you’re a hard-core lover of old-school romance or bodice rippers, you might be familiar with this legendary novel. 4 1/2 stars

In the 1980s – 1990s, Melissa Duillo, later Melissa Gallo after her marriage, was a prolific historical romance cover artist, creating works for publishers such as Avon, Dell, Warner, Zebra, and more. While she and her mother no longer illustrate romance covers, Melissa Duillo Gallo is still involved in the art field as a painter. For the week starting Monday, July 19 to Sunday, July, 25, here are some lovely romance covers created by Melissa Duillo-Gallo.

Historical Romance Review: Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain

Moonstruck Madness was Laurie McBain’s second and, in my opinion, her best book. I adored this book. the first time I read it, I was in my twenties and loved it. The second time, I was in my thirties and enjoyed it a little bit less, but still found it a thrilling read. 4 1/2 stars
