Review: Winter’s Heat by Denise Domning (1994)

The Graistan Chronicles, Book #1

Heat Factor: Sex happens early, but not often.

Character Chemistry: They are the worst communicators. Also he doesn’t respect her. 

Plot: Rowena is married off to Rannulf, and decides to make the best of it. Plus there’s a lot of drama with her inheritance and the Evil Other Woman. 

Overall: This was an interesting read when approached as an artifact of romance written in the 1990s, but it didn’t make my heart go pitter-pat.

Review: The Calyx Charm by May Peterson (2021)

The Sacred Dark, Book #3

Heat Factor: It has a few steamy moments in an otherwise churning sea of what’s going on

Character Chemistry: I mean, they’re meant to be in a deep, deep way

Plot: There’s a whole lot of aftermath, but essentially we meet Violetta and Tibario, who loved each other secretly when Violetta was known as Mercurio, and who find their way to each other after Tibario comes back from the dead.

Overall: This book is kind of like a dream, and everything is floaty and confusing except for what Violetta and Tibario have together.

Review of Touch of Taboo, Book #1

Heat Factor: This book is pictured next to the definition of “one-handed read”

Character Chemistry: Mostly developed off page prior to this book, but it works

Plot: Let’s just play out this fantasy. It’ll be fiiiiine.
