“DESTINY LIES WAITING is an interesting novel set in a well-known time in England, when court drama and politics was at its most rampant. Ms. Rubino does an excellent job of capturing that atmosphere while she develops Denys and Valentine into multi-dimensional and entertaining characters. Denys appears somewhat more multi-faceted as she struggles to learn Elizabeth's intentions while battling her feelings for Valentine."
--Astrid Kinn, Romance Reviews Today
“Though fictitious characters, the Jewels’ experiences are probable, enabling Ms. Rubino free reign with history.” Romantic Times

|I LOVE YOU BECAUSE by Diana Rubino is all that and then some. Everything about this book is what writing should be--original and wonderfully executed. Bravo!--|
Karen L. Williams,
Nettie and Tom face economic problems, prejudice, and cultural differences. Ms. Rubinos research is obvious, but she became so absorbed in the details of the era, politics, and subplots that she sometimes loses sight of the characters.
|My final conclusion is that ONE TOO MANY TIMES is a clever and original blend of history and speculation, an altogether good time tale told with bawdy humor. --|
Jane Bowers, Romance Reviews Today

romance, but it is one magnificent story.
Deborah Brent, Romantic Times
|The ending is a terrific didn't-see-it-coming surprise, the plot is well-paced, and the characters won't leave you for weeks. Highly recommended.|
-- Linda Unger, Medford, NY
|Diana Rubino crafts a good read with interesting players that never have a dull moment. Tessie is a wonderful secondary character that adds her own personality to this enchanting tale. |
