The Secret of a Kiss – A Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Recommended Read

Genre: Sweet Romance

Synopsis:

A lonely stretch of highway, a handsome stranger, and a long-kept secret that could wreck everything.

Linden Adair is a talented makeup artist on the New York Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera, creating the hideous scar for the actor who plays the phantom every night. But nobody knows the deep scars Linden carries after the divorce from her husband, Mark Denly—who is the famous director of Phantom.

Desperate to get away, Linden takes a cross-country trip to visit her best friend in Seattle. While driving on a deserted stretch of highway late at night, she hits a deer and crashes the rental car into a gully outside of Snow Valley, Montana.

A devastatingly handsome stranger with a tow truck rescues Linden and her smashed vehicle, but when she catches sight of him in the light, she’s shocked. Anton Baldwin possesses a terrible scar on his face—just like the phantom she created every night at the theater.

But Anton is hiding more than the truth behind his scar, and during a whirlwind week while being recruited for a television show being filmed in Snow Valley, the secrets of this enigmatic man turn her world upside down. Does he hold the magic she needs to heal the scars on her broken heart?

If you like sweet romance and second chance love stories, then you’ll love THE SECRET OF A KISS, A Snow Valley Romance.

My Thoughts : 

This is a highly engaging big city to small town sweet romance. I was drawn to this book because I am a big Broadway fan, and the heroine does the makeup for The Phantom of the Opera. I enjoyed this book immensely and especially liked the attraction and sensual tension between the two romantic leads. It’s been my experience that sweet romance books can be a little too sweet for my tastes, but that was not the case with this book. This book most certainly qualifies as a clean romance, but it did a nice job of developing the attraction and the love between the main characters. I found this to be a quick and enjoyable romantic read.

A Dance in Time – Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Review

Rose Rating – Four Roses

Title: A Dance in Time 

Author: Leslie Hachtel

Genre: Time Travel Romance

Synopsis:

Lady Grace imagines escaping her cruel husband and miserable life. A portal into the past offers her so much more than she bargained for. Including meeting the man of her dreams whose life is at risk. Can she save him? Can he rescue her?

What I Loved About this Book:

I do love a good time-travel story! Pierce is a sexy, good-guy Pirate who falls for a woman who has traveled back in time via a magic portal in her home. Grace is a terrific heroine who is understandably a somewhat weak character in the beginning. She is abused and tormented by her husband (include off-page rape, which was glossed over a bit too easily I thought. Grace didn’t seem to suffer all that much trauma from being sexually assaulted, and that didn’t really ring true for me). By the end of the book, Grace really came into her own and became a fighter, which I loved. I also really enjoyed her friendship with Edward, her young time-traveling companion. The romance between Pierce and Grace was sweet and sensual, and worked well for me.

What Could Have Been Better:

This couple had a serious case of insta-love. They pretty much took one look at each other and decided they couldn’t live without each other. Individually, their characters were so well-developed that I would have liked to have seen more detail concerning their blossoming romance.

Sexual Content: Some hints of sensuality, but that’s it. 

Overall: A sweet, sensual, and romantic time-travel story.
