All About Romance

New Reviews

There are few things more painful for a reviewer than having to negatively review a book by an author whose work she has enjoyed very much in the past. Still, if one receives an advance reading copy, the review, and an honest one, is owed. So here it goes: As much as I loved Roxanne St. Claire’s romantic suspense books in the past, I thoroughly disliked Barefoot by the Sea, the fourth installment in her Barefoot Bay Series.


Girl from the rough side of town finds herself mixed up with a detective? Sounds like a familiar plot to me, but in Her Irresistible Protector, Michelle Douglas gives it a fresh spin. Sadly, the characterizations and some of the plot points could have used a little more freshening up to make this more than a merely ordinary read.
