Carole Mortimer / Junko Murata – Harlequin/DMP/eManga – 2010 – 1 volume
This is one of the Harlequin titles posted over at the emanga site. I checked this out as part of the recent Hooray for Harlequin feature at Manga Recon, so check out my review over there. I like this feature a lot since there were a lot of different people covering a lot of different types of romance titles with different expectations, I think.
I’ve got some more detailed commentary on my other Harlequin/eManga review, The Sheikh’s Contract Bride, but if you stumble across this in the archives, basically, this story was slightly more to my liking, but more poorly executed and a little more creepy.
For more Harlequin fun, track down the reviews of Dark Horse’s Harlequin titles, specifically the “more mature” violet line. Did I buy all three? The fact I had to look that up on LibraryThing is sad. Anyway, the titles are Response, Holding on to Alex, and Blind Date. I made the hunt slightly less fun by titling them all “Harlequin Ginger Blossom.” Whatever. Curse you, Connie of four years ago.
