Alaska Wild


As far as romantic suspense goes, there's a huge amount of suspending disbelief that must be put in during the reading process and the extent to which I can hold back this disbelief is based on how much I'm engrossed in the action, the pacing and the...

A Fire in the Blood


Originally posted by member_48467976 at Reading Alley: A FIRE IN THE BLOOD immediately reminded me of PNRs I read a good 25 years ago. The hero is a know-it-all, mildly deceptive alpha type, the heroine passive. There's instant chemistry/instamate,...
