Reviews and Articles To Look Forward To In 2022

New Articles & In-Depth Historical Analysis

In this new year, we’ll be busy with more reviews, articles, and information about your favorite old-school romance novels. We’ll try to keep up with the great momentum of 2021 that brought us here. What’s on the horizon for this year?

One new addition you can look forward to in the upcoming weeks and months includes a dedicated page for romance cover models, both male & female. We’re going beyond Fabio!

Look for more cover artists, publishers, and romance trivia.

About Jacqueline Diaz

Old-School, retro, and vintage romance reads are my jam, baby! The good, the bad, the cheesy, and the sleazy! I have no shame about it; I love ’em! An auto-didact, amateur historian, and reader of romance novels since 1990, I hope to offer a unique perspective on the genre. As a blogger, you may know me by several names; here, I’m Jacqueline Diaz. I’m also the aspiring author of two works-in-progress, historical romances, The Savage Noble and What She Says with Her Eyes, which hopefully will be released in 2023.

    Your lineup looks great! I would like to see my two favorite vintage authors, Marsha Canham and Rebecca Brandewyne, have their works reviewed (you’ve done a few Brandewyne reviews but I want them all!). I also think it would be interesting if some of the 80s and 90s paranormal and sci-fi romances were reviewed.

      Hello, Mrs. M,

      I’ve read and own all of Rebecca Brandwyne’s historicals. She was such an integral author in my early years of reading romance. I want to review her first two books and Upon A Moon-Dark Moor, but I need to reread them to do the reviews justice. So perhaps not this month, but look for them soon!

      As for Ms. Canham, I’ll push Bound By the Heart up in my TBR.

      More Gothics, paranormals, and scifi romances are also on the agenda. Look for Janet Louise Roberts, Jayne Castle and Rita Clay Estrada reviews, but a also an article on the history of PNRs!

      Thanks and cheers,

    Please!! more reviews of the old school harlequins!! I stop whatever I’m doing when I get a notification you’ve done a review on a harlequin.

    1. jacquelinediaz

      Hello Anne,
      I’m pleased to say that we have dozens of reviews lined up for Romances, Temptations, Presents, and Intrigues for this year. As long as Sweet Savage Flame is around, so will Harley reviews.

      Glad to hear that you enjoy them!
