All About Romance

New Reviews

I have a friend who refuses to read any book set during or before the American Revolution. She claims that she’s not interested in sitting through another dull history textbook, but I’ve found that I’m never so interested to learn about a time period as when I’m pulled into a story by an author of the caliber of Ms. Thorland. Although Mistress Firebrand is not my favorite of her books, it was very well done, and I will certainly be seeking out more of her work in the future.


I’ve read and loved Grace Burrowes’ historical romances, so I was happy to see what she could do with a contemporary. And while the writing itself is up to Burrowes’ high standards, my final conclusion upon finally finishing The First Kiss is that I far prefer her stories set in the past over those set in the present.
