Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Review: Lost Rider (Coming Home #1) by Harper Sloan

Crista’s Review 4 Stars! The first romance novel I ever read was written by Diana Palmer and featured one of her typical brooding cowboy heroes.  I’ll always have a fondness for her and her heroes.  When I saw that this book was recommended for fans of Diana Palmer, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. Lost Rider is just the kind of book that I love.  It features a heroine who’s been in love with the hero her entire life.  I love books where the main couple knew one another from the time they were teens.  It also features a wounded cowboy, both physically and emotionally. If you […]

Review: Saddle Up (Hot Cowboy Nights #4) by Victoria Vane

Review: Saddle Up (Hot Cowboy Nights #4) by Victoria Vane

Karla’s Review 3.5 Stars! While I loved the detail about the plight of the  mustangs I felt that it might have overshadowed the romance element in the story. For that reason, I had a hard time feeling the chemistry between the 2 main protagonists, Keith and Miranda. I loved them well enough as individuals but I didn’t get that all-consuming feeling that they belonged together, something I look for in my romance reads. I also would have liked more information as to why Keith had the falling out with his tribe due to the documentary that was filmed about him. There were bits and pieces but nothing concrete that would help […]

Review: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

Review: Beauty and the Bull Rider (Hotel Rodeo)

  Karla’s Review  4.5 Stars! A great addition to the Hotel Rodeo series! Zac and Delaney proved to be match made in baby makin’ heaven, but they also had wonderful chemistry and you could feel how much they cared for each other. These two started out with a deal, but when all was said and done, they were in it for love. I wasn’t sure how Delaney would fit into this series being she’s Ty’s ex, and whether or not if I would like her. Delaney grew on me and turned out to be such a likable character, someone who was misjudged and proved herself to be very capable and smart. […]
