Review: Season for Desire by Theresa Romain

Season-for-DesireSeason for Desire by Theresa Romain (historical, Zebra, October 2014, $6.99, 320pp)


Series: Holiday Pleasure, book  4


Like her four sisters, Lady Audrina Bradleigh is expected to marry a duke, lead fashion, and behave with propriety. Consequently, Audrina pursues mischief with gusto, attending scandalous parties and indulging in illicit affairs. But when an erstwhile lover threatens to ruin her reputation, Audrina has no choice but to find a respectable husband at once.


Who would guess that her search would lead her to Giles Rutherford, a blunt-spoken American on a treasure hunt of his own? When a Christmas snowstorm strands the pair at a country inn, more secrets are traded than gifts--along with kisses that require no mistletoe--and Audrina discovers even proper gentlemen have their wicked side. . .

Two New Adult Reviews: The Hook Up and Scratch


I’ve had a tough time with the New Adult romance genre. There are several reasons, but one of the major ones seems to be the glaring disparity in what books get that label. Also, I’ve been burned by many NA books that were just horrible reads for me. But lately, I’ve read some fantastic ones that are making me reevaluate my opinion. Both Kristen Callihan’s The Hook Up and Scratch by Rhonda Helms hit the sweet spot for me with college-set stories that combine sweet and sexy romances with deep emotional angst. The stories are not the same, but have the same type of feel. I highly recommend both.


The Hook Up has Drew, the star college quarterback and Anna, the standoffish woman who is determined to keep her emotions bottled up. Drew is the pursuer, a man who sees Anna and falls for her immediately. Anna is gun shy and suspicious of Drew’s motives. How could the school’s star quarterback like her? Additionally, she has learned that relationships don’t last from her mother who has never had any luck with men.

Series: Book 1 in Living In


Law professor Eleanor May is fine with taking over a class for a colleague on sabbatical. She’s not so fine with the hot student who’s always seated front and center. Once upon a time she was that student…and the scars remain eight years after it ended.


Yet this guy seems different from the others. Despite the alarm bells in her head warning her about history repeating itself, she is drawn toward the forbidden once again—even though this time it could consume her.
