Review: Refuge by Willa J. Brand (2020)

Heat Factor: Smoulder, smoulder my friends (but behind closed doors)

Character Chemistry: They just kind of systematically click on every level from the first moment.

Plot: Taylor is escaping an abusive marriage with her infant son when her car breaks down in Montana. When she’s rescued and hired by a local rancher, she ends up meeting the rancher’s wife’s brother, Owen, whose steady and secure nature is kind of exactly what she needs.

Review: Letters and Lies by Colleen L Donnelly (2020)

Heat Factor: It’s not ‘hot’, but don’t let it deter you.

Character Chemistry: You hope she’ll fall for the hero but there’s so much else going on it’s not a sole focus.

Plot: Louise Archer gets jilted by her unseen suitor at the last possible moment by telegram and decides to hop on the train as planned anyway so she can convince him to change his mind. But when she lies to a US Marshal and ends up in a dismal little town in desperate need of saving, Louise can’t help but jump right in… 

Overall: This is not a steamy, relationship-driven romance but it’s darn good and it sticks with you.
