Lynn Spencer - All About Romance

I'm one of the publishers of All About Romance. I love reading romance, as well as mysteries, fantasy, history and historical fiction, and all kinds of other things. Staying on Goodreads for now but trying this out in case I decide to switch.

Craving Her Soldier's Touch - Wendy S. Marcus C- at AAR, so 2.5 stars. Category romance authors at their very best pack a lot of emotion and characterization into a rather limited page count. Unfortunately, when they don't bring their A game, packing lots of conflict and emotion into a small book can result in a hot mess. Sadly, that's what happened throughout most of Craving her Soldier's Touch. This book just had too much going on, and none of the various plotlines and conflicts got developed well enough to really pack a solid punch.Before heading off to war, Ian Eddleton has a night of passion with Jaci Piermont. He has no intention of taking things further because he plans on a military career and he saw firsthand how his father's military career embittered his mother, so he does not stay in contact with Jaci. Jaci falls in love with Ian and does not take his desertion well. She learns somewhat by accident that he has returned home, and her anger at his silence is immediately apparent. And from there the sparks fly.This is a partial review. You can find the complete text at All About Romance: http://likesbooks.com/cgi-bin/bookReview.pl?BookReviewId=9381
