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: Mistletoe and Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler (2020)

Moose Springs, Alaska, Book #2

Review of Moose Springs Alaska, Book #1

Heat Factor: It was extremely ambiguous until they finally did go all the way because they were constantly fooling around but then the door closed

Character Chemistry: 🌲🌲🌲 (that’s pining, FYI)

Review: Serving Sin by Angelina M. Lopez (2021)

Filthy Rich, Book #3

Reviews of Filthy Rich Book #1 and Book #2

Heat Factor: Frequently interrupted, so there’s lots of foreplay, but full penetration doesn’t happen until the very end. It must be noted that Lopez’s sex writing is top-notch, with or without penetration. 

Character Chemistry: Is there a grade higher than A+?

Plot: I must protect you! / I am a powerful woman, but I accept your protection. 

Overall: A satisfying end to the series

Review: Magdalene Series by Kristen Ashley (2014)

Heat Factor: There is so much sex that even people who prefer high heat books might think there’s a lot of sex

Character Chemistry: It’s that sort of mellow, adult clicking together that might involve struggle but not much drama

Plot: Wealthy woman in her 40s winds up romantically involved with a more working-class hero in small town Maine, which irks the obnoxious wealthy man who can’t deal gracefully with not getting the girl

Overall: For readers who enjoy stories with older protagonists, lotsa sex, and a relaxed, meandering story

Review: No Time for Caution by K.T. Samois (2021)

Triskelion Security, Book #1

Heat Factor: It’s a well-seasoned pot of sex chili

Character Chemistry: They’re immediately heavily into each other and it’s everything but dessert until marriage for these two.

Plot: Riona is working at a coffee shop at the airport when she meets Hardin, a mercenary whose actual job is “confidential”. When Ree and Hardin spark up a heated romance, they end up going into business together, too—and Hardin’s enemies start to come out of the shadows.

Overall: This was a fun read—suspenseful/romantic/entertaining.
