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.

The Devil's Daughter (Leisure Historical Romance) - Laura Drewry I reviewed this book back in 2008, but it's been reissued and is free for the downloading on Amazon today. I gave this a B-, so really it would be 3.5 stars for me here. Though not without flaws, I remember it being a fun read and here is what I had to say about it: There are some books that just sound like they shouldn't work. At first blush, The Devil's Daughter appeared to be one of these. A plot involving not a figure of speech, but the Devil's actual daughter - and one described as a "love and laughter romance" to boot - sounded like it could end up being just a touch twee for my tastes. However, readers who look beyond the 80s throw back cover (seriously, the male model looks like he has both a perm and a mini-mullet), will find a fun little treat of a story. The novel opens at a bride auction in 1880s Texas. A lovely young lady in a silk dress spots a man and knows instantly that he has what she seeks. Though the man in question has his own ideas about what he is looking for and suspects that an elegant lady will not suit him or his hardscrabble farm, Lucy Firr convinces him to choose her anyway. Intrigued by the lady whose dainty appearance stands at odds with her work-roughened hands and brazen speech, Jed Caine agrees to marry her.This is a partial review.
