First: Unusual Historicals is four years old! Given how much I enjoy historical novels in other locations, and how many more I see each year, I think this is a good anniversary. Have a look at the Unusual Historicals site for prizes and fun, and tell me, what’s your favorite unusual setting?
This post from Penny Romance made me snort-laugh: A Day in the Life of Amazon Romance Boards. My favorite part: Bosnia.
I had this link a few days ago and cannot believe I forgot to share it: College QB or Roance Novel Hero?. I got 10 out of 11 – and did better than Hubby. I’m particularly proud of myself on that one. What’s your score?
Behold, the briefest review ever in the history of this site because I am crazy busy and under Le Deadline as well as Must Pack the Familyitis: this weekend I read Temptation is the Night by Marguerite Kaye, and I really liked it. In terms of grade, this one is a solid B+ with me.

But the novella is all about them putting things back together several years later, and it’s a spiffy good story. Enjoy, enjoy and my apologies for the super short review. Usually with a review I am wordy mc wordy pants-that-need-hemming. But I didn’t want you to miss the chance to read a novella that’s done marvelously well. If you read it, please do let me know what you think!
