Where Readers and Writers of Romance Come...

Copper BeachTechnically, Sam Coppersmith might not be a private investigator, but he is exactly the man Abby Radwell needs to deal with her little problem. An antiquarian bookseller with a specialty in paranormally encrypted texts, she has been receiving anonymous notes that threaten to disclose secrets from her past unless Abby agrees to find a certain book for the blackmailer. Sam, an expert in rare minerals and paranormally charged crystals, is more than willing to take on the assignment, especially since he believes the book the blackmailer wants is the very same lab notebook his family has been trying to keep off the market (and out of the hands of crazies) for decades. However, things quickly become complicated between the two as Sam and Abby realize their simple business relationship is turning into something much more personal.

 

 

The Lady Most Likely by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway

"The Lady Most Likely", and what an apt title it is for each of our heroines is in fact, most unlikely. Lady Most Likely
Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them--and a few other gentlemen-- to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season.

And so it is! For the price of one book you get three romances from three of the genre's best writer's. Amazing!

Well I will be honest, despite the stellar writing roster I was a bit skeptical they could pull off three full bodied romances that would leave me satisfied. And for the most part they certainly surpassed my expectations. Three completely different ladies fall in love with three different gentlemen and as a reader I never felt cheated. Each romance had what all romances should have. The lovebirds who don't know they're lovebirds, some obstacles and misunderstandings, sexy interlude's and finally declarations from the heart. Admittedly some of the declarations were a bit on the cheesy/predictable side but easily overlooked.

Of the three stories the romance of Miss Gwendolyn Passmore and the Earl of Charters was probably the most up my alley. Painfully shy Miss Passmore may be, but something in the Earl brings out her wicked sense of humor, and like a rose in spring she blossoms under his attention. While everyone sees an ethereal beauty that in equal parts intimidates and infuriates her feminine peers, the Earl soon discovers that Gwendolyn is far from the careless cold debutant he rescues from a gaggle of men vying for her attention. 

Good humor is alive and well in Romance people, and if anyone says otherwise, they've never had the pleasure of reading the Quinn, James and Brockway. Their witty banter neatly threads each story into a complete novel any reader will love. The Lady Most Likely is a delight and certainly wets the appetite for more. As for me, I'm looking forward to their next installment, "The Lady Most Willing".
