Book Review: Robin’s impression of Marriage Training by Golden Angel

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is Marriage Training by Golden Angel. Take it away, Robin! Thanks! Marriage Training, by Golden Angel, is a steamy Victorian erotica detailing the exploits of an innocent, young woman named Vivian and her dark, mysterious Earl. After meeting, and falling in love with Vivian at a wedding, Lord Gabriel decides to support Vivian and her family by financing her finishing school. The aristocrat promises to support Vivian’s family and will guarantee Vivian’s security under one condition: that she undergo special training to become his wife.  To be honest, I really loved this book, not only because of how Angel depicts the fluidity of pleasure and sexuality, but also the accurate depiction of the BDSM community...

Book Review: V.B.’s impression of Hearts Abroad by Skye McNeil

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is Hearts Abroad by Skye McNeil. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks! This book is a light-hearted romance that blends the summer fling trope with those of finding a millionaire to love, and loving the boss. I really enjoyed how the author wrote Londyn and Callum’s attraction. It’s steamy and just keeps building.  As advertised, this book is easy to read and fun. The supporting characters are appealing, and the humor comes from klutziness, snarky comments, and Londyn’s quirks. At first you wonder what she could possibly offer Calum, but over time things sync...

Book Review: V.B.’s impression of Heart’s Blood by Alice Von Kannon

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is Heart's Blood by Alice Von Kannon. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks! This book is an excellent historical romance. I liked that it was set in notorious Salem Massachusetts, but in 1803. The author did an excellent job with the historical facts and vernacular. She puts you in the timeframe. Like other reviewers, I felt the story took time to build. It was slow moving at first, but I didn’t mind, because it helped me understand Issac and Eleanor better. Then, by halfway in, I was ready for the drama to start, and boy did it ever...

Book Review: V.B.’s impression of The Hitman’s Mistake by Sally Brandle

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is The Hitman’s Mistake by Sally Brandle. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks! This book has an imaginative opening that pulled me right in. Miranda is personable and Grant is just freakin’ sexy. If you like crime/suspense romance for hunky FBI agents, here’s an awesome one. It also mixes in Montana cowboy vibes for those of us who love horses. I read it in one sitting; I just had to see how things turned out. Nothing is too trite, and the mystery unfolds without being too obvious. The author does an excellent job moving you through the scenes as the story unfolds...

Book Review: V.B.’s impression of Shore Love by Gary Robert Muschla

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is Shore Love by Gary Robert Muschla. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks! This book is exactly what its description suggests, a quick beach-read love story. I agree that it has all the ingredients for a cozy afternoon read…A heroine forced to go back to a childhood place. A hunky ex-boyfriend living there successfully without her. Divided loyalties all around. Topped off with a satisfying ending.  However, the story felt a little cliché to me. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. The writing is nice. The dialogue is well done and believable. The characters are sweet, and I enjoyed how...

Book Review: V.B.’s impression of Captivated by Clio by Tanisha D. Jones

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is Captivated by Clio by Tanisha D. Jones. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks! I loved this book from the first page! It’s an enchanting love story that surely seems like it can’t work out, but gets hot and steamy right off, and keeps going. Clio and Noah have history. I rooted for them the whole way as I worried their relationship would implode. Their initial relationship had ended horribly years before, and now they have a seemingly destined adventure that tempts them as they work together...

The latest I Love Romance Blog review selection is The Reluctant Husband by Eliot Grayson. Take it away, V.B.! Thanks!
