Art & Sole by Jane Gershon Weitzman

Art & Sole by Jane Gershon Weitzman

October 2, 2013 Non-Fiction, Reviews 0

Strictly speaking, Art & Sole doesn’t fit our concept. That said, if you spend very long in romance circles you will find that shoes are an amazingly frequent topic of conversation. If we made a word cloud, Zappos would dominate. I don’t know what it is about the shoe. Cinderella,… Read more »

A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant

A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant

September 11, 2013 Historical, Reviews 1

While I admired much about Cecilia Grant’s debut novel, I didn’t love it. A Woman Entangled caught my eye because it promised all the things I love most. Class conflict. Toxic family dynamics.

Her disabled characters are… Read more »

Reading Asexually

Reading Asexually

August 17, 2013 Opinion 9

Asexuality is almost completely absent from the romance genre. Characters without a sexual drive are either delicate young girls who haven’t found their dominant billionaire or closeted homosexuals. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that – when it is addressed in romance at all – is addressed as something to be… Read more »

The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan

The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan

August 13, 2013 Historical, Reviews 3

My abiding love for Courtney Milan books is well documented. You should know that I have neither objectivity nor credibility on this subject. (Which means you should totally read every Courtney Milan review I ever write because the breakup is going to an epic bit of room clearing.) ANYWAY. The… Read more »
