Bodice Ripper Review Weekend Kick-Off {#4}


Welcome to the monthly

Bodice Ripper Review Weekend here at Novel Reflections!

Are you wondering what exactly that means?

The Bodice Ripper Review Weekend is a feature Diana and I started early last year when we were two separate blogs. We had such great feedback from it, and of course, love any excuse to travel back in time to the days when romance wasn’t always so PC. To the time when authors such as Katherine Woodiwiss and Johanna Lindsey (the early non-PC days) were making us swoon. :)

During our BRR weekend (which is held the last weekend of every month), we post a different bodice ripper-esque book review on both Saturday and Sunday.

Each comment left on the reviews counts towards an entry point into a drawing to win a copy of one of the books that we’ve reviewed during the current weekend. Due to the fact that some of the books we review may no longer be in circulation, we always let you know what format(s) of the books we’re reviewing are available for the winner to choose from.

The point is, we want to be able to share the “love” of an old school romance novel with our friends who like them too!!


This month’s books that will be reviewed are

You, and No Other by Cynthia Wright, and A Fire in the Blood by Shirl Henke.

Sadly, both of these books are out of print, and therefore, only available from select e-tailers. The winner of this weekend’s event will choose from either an ebook of You, and No Other gifted via or an ebook of A Fire in the Blood via

We hope to see you here this weekend!!
