“Firelight” by Kristen Callihan (historical, paranormal, Grand Central, February 2012, $5.99, 400pp)
From this moment that I started reading Kristen Callihan’s “Firelight,” I was hooked. I couldn’t resist the firestarting heroine and the deeply tortured hero finding true love in dark London. The mystery kept me turning the pages with gusto as I tried to figure out what possible ailment affected said hero, Lord Benjamin Archer and how it all might be resolved. Callihan kept me guessing with this riveting romance.

“The Lesson Plan” by Jackie Barbosa (historical, erotic, December 2011, Circe Press, $2.99, 22,500 words/64pp)
I’ve read several of Jackie Barbosa’s historical novellas over the past several months. Her books are set during the Regency period, my favorite time period for historical romances, and they have an intense eroticism that titillates. As such, I jumped at the chance to review Barbosa’s recent release, “The Lesson Plan,” the first story in the Lords of Lancashire trilogy. While I have way too many books that I have committed to read, I could not resist reading this one as soon as it hit my inbox.

“A Lady Awakened” by Cecilia Grant (historical, Ballantine, January 2012, $7.99, 368pp)
When there is significant buzz about a book, I can’t help but want to read it. There is nothing quite like the feeling of coming home to find an advance copy of a title that people are talking about waiting in the mailbox. This is exactly what happened with Cecilia Grant’s “A Lady Awakened.” I was so curious about this book and could not wait to read it.

“The Duke is Mine” by Eloisa James (historical, Avon, January 2012, $7.99, 400pp)
“The Duke is Mine” is the latest of Eloisa James’ fairy-tale-based romances and has loose ties to “The Princess and the Pea.” James gives us a romance between Olivia Lytton and Tarquin, Duke of Sconce, two lovers who are not supposed to be together. Olivia is engaged to another, and Tarquin, or Quin, is meant for Olivia’s sister. But love has a funny way of happening, even at the most unexpected of times. And this unexpected love story left me somewhat breathless with delight.
