Historical Romance Review: Forbidden Ecstasy by Janelle Taylor

This review is of Forbidden Ecstasy (“Ecstasy/Gray Eagle Series #3″) by Janelle Taylor. The “Stockholm Syndrome romance” between Gray Eagle and Alisha keeps me from giving Janelle Taylor’s Forbidden Ecstasy a five-star rating. 4 Stars

Historical Romance Review: Rapture’s Ransom (aka Not Quite Married) by Betina Krahn

This review is of Rapture’s Ransom by Betina Krahn.

The book begins in the South of England in 1787. It is here that Brien Weston, the heroine of the book, lives–a better term might be exists–with her father, Lord Lawrence Weston, the sixth Earl of Southward. The relationship between father and child is strained and becomes even more so when Lawrence, after a trip to France, announces he has affianced Brien to a man, Raoul Trechard, whom she has never met. 4 stars

Historical Romance Review: Midnight Fires by Carol Finch

This review is of Midnight Fires by Carol Finch. This Zebra historical romance set during the war of 1812 is a typical Carol Finch book. It’s very good, but lacking the dynamic qualities to make it great. 4 stars

Historical Romance Review: Savage Obsession by Cassie Edwards

This review is of Savage Obsession, book #1 in the “Chippewa” series by Cassie Edwards. From what I read of others’ reviews of her books, there is no middle ground with Mrs. Edwards’ work. Some love her, and others absolutely hate her. I’m kind of in the middle. Savage Obsession won’t make anyone a fan of Mrs. Edwards’ work who wasn’t already one. 2 stars

Historical Romance Review: Captive Angel by Deana James

Deana James’ romance Captive Angel was an emotional, turbulent Zebra Lovegram romance with a heroine who was forged in fire and a hero not worthy to lick her boots. One of the best non-romance romances 5 stars

Historical Romance Review: Texas Treasure by Victoria Thompson

This review is of Texas Treasure, book #1 in the “The Cowboy and the Lady” series by Victoria Thompson. It is not a bad book, but it is also not a dynamic one, with too many issues to keep it from being a very good book. 3 stars

Historical Romance Review: The King’s Pleasure by Shannon Drake

Shannon’s Drake’s (aka Heather Graham) The King’s Pleasure is set amid the intense medieval backdrop of the Hundred Years’ War and the Black Death. It’s a solid romance in a historical age that always grips my attention. 4 stars
