The Harlequin Desire line, a staple in the category romance genre, is ending and will be replaced by a new line called “Afterglow.” The closure marks the end of an era.
Wrong Address, Right Place has a paper-thin plot that would be difficult to swallow if written by most writers. Thankfully, in the hands of seasoned funny-lady Lass Small, this romance is an entertaining and zany read. 4 Stars
The American-based Silhouette imprint ran from 1980 to 2011. They produced several innovative series during the years, starting with the Romance line, then Desire, Special Edition, Intimate Moments, and more. We’ve picked one shining example from 6 of their lines. We think you’ll like our selections!
Ready, Willing and Abel was my first foray into the Silhouette Desire line. Nancy Martin penned a ridiculous, sexy romp that made me fall in love with the series. Featuring an Indiana Jones-like hero and a button-downed heroine working in fast-paced Washinton DC, this story was not based at all in reality. It was so over-the-top and silly; I adored it. 4 1/2 stars
Nelson’s Brand was my first and, so far, only foray into Diana Palmer’s little corner of Romancelandia. Palmer has got a bit of a reputation in the genre as an author of ultra-macho, hairy-chested heroes and virginal, too-stupid-to-live heroines. 2 stars
