Review: We Take This Man by Candice Dow and Daaimah S. Poole

Reviewer: Jamaica Layne

Review: I have to say I was somewhat skeptical when I picked up this book. First, I’m usually not a fan of books that are tag-team written by two authors. In my experience, books that have multiple authors are usually a muddle of different voices working against each other. Plus, book is about a three-way marriage—-and the book’s cover makes no secret about its subject matter, with a tuxedoed groom with a white-gowned bride on each arm.

Review: The Wild One by Denise Eagan

Reviewed by Jamaica Layne (http://www.jamaicalayne.com and http://jamaicalayne.blogspot.com)

The Wild One is Denise Eagan’s second novel, the followup to her well-received debut, Wicked Woman. This historical romance is set in the American Old West, beginning in post-Civil War San Francisco, and the plot meanders around through Colorado and finally to Texas not far from the Mexican border. Shakespearean actress Jessica Sullivan shares a tiny flat with her fellow actress Michelle, a Midwestern jezebel stage actress who bleaches her hair and pretends to be French.

Review of Lone Star Surrender by Lisa Renee Jones

Lone Star Surrender (Harlequin Blaze)Reviewed by Jamaica Layne (http://www.jamaicalayne.com)

It had been a long time since I curled up with a novel from Harlequin’s red-hot Blaze line, so when the good folks at Book Talk asked me to review this book as my first guest review on the blog, I jumped at the chance. It had been quite a while since I’d read any series romance at all; in fact, so I was curious if the line had changed any in the four or five years it’s been since I last read it.
