Smashwords book reviews by Patricia Ryan

  • Snowed on June 30, 2012

    I can't tell you how glad I am that Pamela Burford has new books coming out! Snowed and Too Darn Hot make most other contemporary romance feel slow and unexciting--and Snowed stars one of her signature, scalding hot alpha heroes. I hated to see it end, and I hope there's more to come!
  • Too Darn Hot on July 01, 2012

    I love really sexy contemporary romance with great characters, some pace and a dash of humor, and boy, does this book fit the bill! Pamela is in superb form with TOO DARN HOT, which is a digital reprint of a book that came out in print a few years ago. The hero is one smoking hot chef, the heroine is a food critic, and the chemistry between them is incendiary. Great banter, sizzling sex... Awesome!
