In Night Light by Jennifer Greene, a surly man opens his home to a stranded woman during a thunderstorm. She stays for the night. That’s when things get weird. 4 Stars
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
We all could use a good joke to cheer us up when we’re down in the dumps. Sometimes we take life–and romance–too seriously. We know the romance genre can get a bit ridiculous at times. So it’s perfect that today, August 16, is National Tell a Joke Day here in the United States. It’s a great opportunity to laugh about love and relationships and romance novels.
There are Christmas tales that inspire, ones that make us cry, and others that make us laugh with the joy of being alive. Too Many Husbands by Elise Title falls into the latter category. It’s a zany romp of a romance that could have been an old-fashioned screwball comedy on the live screen. 4 1/2 stars
Published in 1991, Judith Arnold’s A> Loverboy is the final installment in the Harlequin American Romance line “A Century of Romance” series. A> Loverboy is a humorous romance about two coworkers falling in for each other in an unusual way. Before there was “You’ve Got Mail” with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, there was this book. 4 stars
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
