Review: The Loving Daylights by Lynsay Sands

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands delivers a “madcap escapade” (Publishers Weekly) in this contemporary romance about a quirky inventor and unexpected love. Shy Jane Spyrus loves gadgets. She can build anything B.L.I.S.S. needs in the international organization’s fight against crime—although its agents aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Some of them think her inventions are a little too . . . well, innovative. Like her shrink-wrap prophylactic constraints or her spray-on truth serum. Of course, you can’t use wacky inventions to fix all your problems; Jane knows that better than anyone. Her neighbor has been kidnapped, driving that point home. She will have to team up with another human being—and Abel Andretti arrives just in time. He will help Jane find her neighbor, stop a villain, and, most of all, he will show Jane how to love the daylights out of something without batteries. I am a…

Guest Review: The Highlander Takes a Bride by Lynsay Sands

Tracy’s review of The Highlander Takes a Bride (Highlander #3) by Lynsay Sands. Sword fighting, swearing, and riding astride come naturally to Saidh Buchanan. Simpering and holding her tongue—definitely not.
