A Frozen Fire by Charlotte Lamb
" I don't know whether my novel was incomplete or not but that was the weirdest ending ever to a novel. The death of Paul most certainly saved the heroine from getting a divorce though. "
The Gypsy Heiress by Laura London
" So, I'm doing research on romance novels for an exhibit. I'd never read any before starting the project (I thought I had, but it turns out they weren't actually romance novels).

This is the first I've actually enjoyed. There are no embarrassing se... " Read more of this review »

If I had to choose one word to describe how this book made me feel, I think it would be "shivery." It's an intense read in so many ways, but when new prison librarian Anne started transcribing a letter for E...more
Just One Kiss by Susan Mallery
" I am really torn about my feelings about this book. I enjoyed it but there were a quite a few things that really grated on my nerves. In this 11th full length Fool's Gold novel I have to wonder if they've run their course and the entire town shoul... " Read more of this review »
With this Kiss by Eloisa James
" The hidden problem in falling in love with a certain author's writing style is that my subsequent expectations of her work tend to be too high, setting me up for inevitable disappointment! I love the witty, charming, insightful, sneakily literate... " Read more of this review »

“Monsters are bad things, but monsters that do not walk and talk like monsters are the worst.”
Matthew Dicks, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

J.C. Lillis
"So? I love pretentious people!"
"They try so hard to be interesting, you don't have to do any work.”
J.C. Lillis, How to Repair a Mechanical Heart

“I agree that it's a shame some books have to suffer ratings that clearly are invalid. However I can't think of a way to prevent it, and I didn't see any ideas in the thread either (I did skim though).

I hope you'll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that we've gone down a censorship road that doesn't take us to a good place.”
Otis Y. Chandler

“The cottage pie was about as wholesome and straightforward as you could get. It was food for winter evenings and happy days. And the salad was rich, complicated, a little bit sweet, and seemed to be trying way too hard to be impressive. We'd both served each other a metaphor.”
Alexis Hall

Charlotte Stein
“He's fucking stone cold deadpan. His pan is so dead he could lay it in a casket and bury it at Bellevue. They made a movie about him once: Dawn of Ivan's Pan.”
Charlotte Stein, Deep Desires
