SYNOPSIS

 

The Wyoming men are back! In their quest for true love on the range, are these ranchers bold enough to open their hearts to the women under their protection? 

Ren Colter may own an enormous ranch in Wyoming, but he scorns his wealth. He's closed himself off since his fiancée left him years ago, so he's shocked when he allows Meredith Grayling to stay with him. He tells himself it's only to protect the blonde beauty from a stalker, but Ren's alpha instincts soon kick in. 

The last thing Merrie wants is a devastatingly handsome man like Ren lurking around her. He's too experienced, too appealing for her already shot nerves. What she needs is just to get away from it all: the man haunting her waking dreams and the one hunting her like an animal. But no woman escapes this Colter cowboy!

The danger is real, but the unions that she creates within her make shift family prove as bulletproof as she turn's out to be. From bad boy gangster's with soft hearts and shrewd minds, to captivating animals and beautiful rugged terrain Wyoming Brave will leave you breathless.

Jane Austen would be proud. Her brand of humor, heart and pomp was executed to create a flawless celebration of the majesty that is historical romance. I went into this anthology as a fan of Julia Quinn and left it having discovered three new kindred spirits in my love of regency. Each author add her voice to a collection of stories that blended seamlessly to create one terrific read. Whimsy, sentiment and love collide in this ode to romance.

Born into a Russian Mafia family, Vlad Karev is no stranger to violence…but this time it’s personal. Someone has murdered his father and Vlad can’t rest until he finds the killer.

As the killer gets closer, so do Vlad and Madison. But is their connection just the means to an end, or could their romance be real?

REVIEW:   DIRTY PLAYERS BY TIA LOUISE

 

The Prince & The Player (Dirty Players Duet, #1)The Prince & The Player by Tia Louise

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I am an avid reader and discovering new authors is what I love to do. So when The Prince and The Player was brought to my attention, I was skittish but anticipation ultimately won out. Taylor Swift summed up Zee and Cal with her song " I Knew You Were Trouble". The signs were all there. Zee is in over her head trying to stay in control, when her heart, life and family are on the line. Tia Louise and her thrilling story of danger, love and adventure is over the top but addictive all the same.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Prince and the Player got the adrenaline going with the train wreck that is Zee's life. Bad guys, temptation and family ties landed her in a ton on hot water. Now running scared and out of options, Zee has more surprises in store. Ms. Louise mixes things up with some role reversal and more heated moments between our resident bad girl and her naughty prince. There is never a dull moment with these two in the explosive conclusion of the Dirty Players Duet.

A recluse by choice Kiera hides her strengths and wears her flaws like a badge of honor. Zach's job is to help those in need.

Abundantly funny intertwined with heady romance and irresistible characters. It's invigorating to read a story that identifies with many but feels like it is speaking directly to you. So many things in life are worth being passionate about and Completely Yours proves to be one of them.

Now she has to find a way out of the mess before it costs her the ultimate price. A woman of mystery, a man with a plan, a volatile scenario and a powder keg of secrets lead Jessa and Jax out of the frying pan and into the fire. What a way to shake up a series.

Leslie North created the atmosphere for a reader to enjoy in front of a fire with a warm blanket, hot drink and a snuggle with the one you love. The Sheikh's Christmas Baby is sentimental gold. From the breathtaking winter wonderland location of Alaska to the descriptive story of shattered love and of course those adorable dogs. It would be inhumane not to have fallen a little in love with Kashif and Kristy. Any time a story leaves you with a warm feeling inside and a smile on your face, it's a winner.

Parenting changes everything. The hardest job in the world is looking after the most vulnerable, frustrating and beautiful gift bestowed, a child.

So Ty had his hands full raising three mischievous boys on his own. Nearest Thing to Heaven is driven by emotion and that is it's largest appeal. Ms. Austin had me hook, line and sinker. A bruised heart, a gorgeous guy, adorable boys and undeniable attraction, all add up to pure gold.

FINDING THE RIGHT GIRL — Can't Resist Series
— A USA TODAY Bestseller —

Having loved and lost twice in his life, Brian Sullivan decides a casual, no-hearts-broken fling might be just what he needs. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously 'unique,' provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course. There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she's ever been in her life, but he's the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does.

What's more, he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago...a happily ever after.

LOVE, DIAMONDS, AND SPADES — Cactus Creek Series
— A USA TODAY Bestseller —

Fiercely independent single mom Quinn Christiansen has good reason not to trust men, seeing as how her ex gambled away their savings and left her to care for their ailing newborn on her own. So color her pissed when the universe goes and decides to make the one man in Cactus Creek not afraid of her ball-busting charm another gambling musician. A ridiculously handsome, gruffly sweet, charmingly pushy one at that.

Rylan Grey isn't used to getting a woman so worked up...well, not in a bad way, at least. But somehow, his mere existence seems to annoy the guarded and gorgeous Quinn to no end. Sure, he's made some gambles to get to where he's at, but they were all of the life variety, with risks as important as the rewards—and not a single dollar in play. While Rylan never wagers anything he's not willing to lose—namely his heart—he's more than ready to ante up once he sees past Quinn's icy defenses.

She could just be his riskiest gamble yet.

BEFORE THAT NIGHT — Unfinished Love Series
— A USA TODAY Bestseller —

Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan.

Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a hardened cop sent to check out the claims of suspected child neglect involving the woman he hasn't been able to stop thinking about for months.

Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for—her only friend in her new shadow of a life—would be in a position to rip her family apart.

Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.

Then that one perfect night changed everything.

REVIEW: THEN CAME YOU (4 - IN -1) BY VIOLET DUKE AND MELANIE SHAWN

 

Then Came You (4-in-1 Special Edition Collection)Then Came You by Violet Duke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Moments of heartache morph into bright days of joy. It may be tough getting there but Ms. Duke always delivers powerful stories that can reduce a reader to tears. Whether happy or heartbreaking depends on the reader but she definitely leaves an impression. Then Came You delivers three stellar examples of what makes Violet Duke a powerhouse as an author. Then Came You is a versatile display of the impact of a gifted writer. From to dark days to shining moments Violet Duke and Melanie Shawn are a memorable duo.

When you least expect it love finds you. Finding the Right Girl is the followup to the Can't Resist series. Brian is at a crossroads having lost what he holds dear. He may have stumbled on the key where he least expects. Stand alone and no cliffhanger. Rewarding read.

Down on her luck Quinn never ever wants to fall in love again. Pain and heartache were her best friends through out her marriage and she does not plan to go through that again. NEVER SAY NEVER. Love, Diamonds and Spades combines touching moments with moments of fun to create a story that is worthy of any romance reader.

REVIEW: DYLAN (BAD BILLIONAIRES AFTER DARK) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 Bad Boys After Dark: Dylan (Bad Boys After Dark, #2; Billionaires After Dark #6; Love in Bloom #48)Bad Boys After Dark: Dylan by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Getting to know a Melissa Foster character is like falling in love for the first time. At first meeting there are no flaws to push you away, only the beginning of something wonderful to lure the reader in. That belief that something special is about to happen is the feeling that Dylan and Tiffany embody as a unit and those complexities only get stronger in their moments of individuality. Tiffany is a ball buster with a killer work ethic and a briefcase full of demons. Dylan mixes his playboy status with a killer smile, a wicked bedside manner and a hero complex but behind all the gloss lies an edge of darkness that not many get to see up close. Sex, secrets and pride are as destructive as any explosive. Dylan needed to heal himself before he could offer help to anyone else. Dylan can be described in two words. Wickedly good.

A DARING PROPOSITION (KINDLE WORLDS:  DARE TO LOVE) BY CASEY HAGEN

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

Boudoir photographer Emberly Blair uses her unusual creative talents to do more than snap steamy photos. Her passion? Using artistic sensuality to help other women find their hidden beauty. Rooted in a family tragedy, Emberly’s work is her life’s mission, and she takes seriously every nuance of light and shadow in the images she creates. What she doesn’t take seriously is the uptight millionaire who lands on her doorstep in need of a good headshot, a female escort, and someone to curb his sarcastic tongue.

IT genius and philanthropist Seth Owens doesn’t pay much attention to anything not connected to an electronic grid—until he meets smart and sexy Emberly Blair. He considers her work superficial smoke-and-mirrors, but knows that where there’s smoke there’s flame, and Emberly is it. When Emberly suggests they make a trade—she’ll accompany him to a dedication event where he is the reluctant star if he’ll be her plus-one at a wedding—Seth agrees to walk into the fire.

The fire becomes a sensual blaze that consumes Seth and Emberly. But just as they begin to believe that their love might be strong enough to burn high and hot for a lifetime, Seth makes a move that Emberly can’t forgive. It will take more than a few sparks to relight their relationship—and a deeper understanding by both of them of what it takes to forge a forever love.

REVIEW:  A DARING PROPOSITION (KINDLE WORLDS:  DARE TO LOVE) BY CASEY HAGEN

 

Dare To Love Series: A Daring Proposition (Kindle Worlds Novella)Dare To Love Series: A Daring Proposition by Casey Hagen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Once you read a Casey Hagen story, it's hard to forget. She writes about real life issues that are not always pretty by giving them her special touch of empathy with a hint of comic relief. That keeps the story grounded in humanity. Her editions to Kindle Worlds prove how much of a chameleon she really is. She blends in with her ability to conquer a setting and add her voice to an already popular series and get herself heard. Seth and Emberly are different on the surface but share similarities underneath. Both have struggled with feelings of insecurity. Emberly has chosen to face hers head on by helping others with self esteem issues. Seth inside still feels like that scared little boy who wasn't good enough despite the success he has. A Daring Proposition is a feast for the senses with it's sensuality and emotional overload. A powerful message in a tiny package delivers the best kind of surprise.

REVIEW:  UNFORGETTABLE YOU (STARLIGHT HILL) BY HEATHERLY BELL

 

Unforgettable You (Starlight Hill, #4)Unforgettable You by Heatherly Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Heatherly Bell's brand of optimistic wisdom and fetching scenarios make for a heavenly combination. I love the positive message she delivers within her stories: "Hurdles are a part of life, but how we handle these obstacles is what makes a person stronger." Her bright attitude is contagious and the charming characters are like a dream come to life. Unforgettable You is fancy tickling second chance story. Are Diana and Scott looking to escape painful memories or searching for a more pleasant future? Only they can decide. The proof is in the pudding with this soul stirring read. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

 Golden LiesGolden Lies by Barbara Freethy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Years ago I read a story by Katherine Stone entitled Pearl Moon. The main characters were so intricately connected that it was hard to distinguish where the forks in the road would take you next. With Golden Lies, Barbara Freethy captured that exact feeling. I felt like I was walking through a maze and the way out was so well hidden that I lost my way a number of times. Golden Lies is not for the faint of heart. Either you are all in or not at all.
Riley, Paige and Alyssa find themselves immersed in a complex mystery that will have a ripple effect. Only open minds, open hearts and puzzle lovers need apply to this complicated read. I love a challenge so I'm all in. 3.5 stars

SYNOPSIS

 

Violet Caliendo escorts couples into the illusion of “happily ever after” as wedding coordinator at Willow Valley’s five-star Caliendo Resort. But Violet doesn’t believe in love or “happily ever after” anymore. She’s guarded herself from love so deeply since her divorce that some even call her the “Ice Queen.” When she has to plan her ex-husband’s wedding, even her Ice Queen persona takes a hit.

With her emotions in high gear, she takes out her frustrations by having sex with her ex’s best man, Ryder Carlex. Ryder is a playboy type and Violet figures it’s a simple one-time fling. But Ryder actually is attracted to Violet in a way he’s never known before. Neither of them ever imagines that the sparks between them will ignite a fire hotter than anything they’ve ever encountered – slowly breaking down both their walls.

Will Violet be able to let go of her past and embrace a possible future with Ryder? Will Ryder let Violet into his own deep, dark secrets? Or will their trust issues forever doom them both from achieving their own “happily ever after”?

REVIEW:  SUNSET THUNDER (THE CALIENDO RESORT) BY SHANNYN LEAH

 

Sunset Thunder (The Caliendo Resort #1)Sunset Thunder by Shannyn Leah

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Violet is a puzzle within a puzzle. Her past has soured her on the institution of marriage and after her own divorce, she now helps others plan there weddings. Huh? Her past meets her present when she ends up entangled in planning her ex's upcoming wedding. Add in a best man she loathes more than her ex husband and the soap opera begins. Sunset Thunder puts the loco in crazy. The surprises are scandalous, the relationships titillating and the drama amplifies from uh-oh to HELL NO, rather quickly. Sunset Thunder took wrong to high frequency levels and delivered a performance that I'll not soon forget. On my list of re-reads.

Like a fairweather friend life can be fickle. The sour moments seem more constant than the sweet. But fear not, the not so happy situations are preparations for the most precious ones. With Seeking Forever, Ms. Chase takes a broken heart mixes in an uncomfortable situation and concocts an irresistible romance.

Two of my favorite authors Roxanne St. Claire and Samantha Chase teamed up. Ms. St. Claire brought the exotic location and Ms. Chase delivered on the feel good motivation.

SYNOPSIS

 

Baseball’s Sexy Bad Boy has come to Barefoot Bay, and he’s here to score...

Brian “Boom-Boom” Callahan might have a million dollar swing, but his bad boy rep has gotten him in trouble with his major league baseball team, so he’s been temporarily sent down to the minors to teach him a lesson.

Aubrey Adams’ fledgling PR firm has been hired to keep the Barefoot Bay Buck’s new hotshot hitter under the radar. All he has to do is play nice for the rest of the season and she’ll get a much needed bonus to keep her company afloat.

Being sent down to the minors is Brian’s worst nightmare, but one look at Aubrey and he decides that the next four weeks might not be so bad if he can get the cute brunette to warm his personal bench. Aubrey’s not about to be anyone’s groupie, especially not to a spoiled athlete whose batting record is only surpassed by the number of women he’s reported to have bedded.

But when Brian lays on the charm, Aubrey finds herself falling for the funny, kind, and intelligent man he hides from the press. When a well-intentioned gesture gets unexpected national publicity, Aubrey has to wonder if she’s up to playing in the big leagues, or if she’s just being played.

Ms. Geraci brings her A game with Come and Get Your Love. A heavy hitter in the big leagues is about to be brought back down to size. Brian has the skills to be a star athlete but his reputation makes him a liability, costing him dearly. Aubrey is just the girl to tone down the ego and polish up the shine. If she can keep her heart and his hormones out if the equation. Ms. Geraci scored a home run with Brian and Aubrey. I'm not into sports stories but she made me sit and take notice. That's a winner for me.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Sassy, sexy and hilarious. Those Van Doran brothers know how to make an impression. Twin Navy Seals, Mimosa will never know what hit it. Operation: Romeo proves that love may be deaf, dumb and blind but always lands on it's feet. Garrett is adorably clueless when it comes to love. A whirlwind romance that culminated in a runaway bride is neon proof. There must be something in the water on that island that causes sain people to do stupid things. Callie makes that clear with her flair for landing in some crazy situations. In the end Operation: Romeo casts it's spell rather quickly.

SEDUCED BY THE BEST MAN  (KINDLE WORLDS:  BAREFOOT BAY:  SEALS ON VACATION) BY ZOE YORK

 

 

 

Release Date:  October 11, 2016

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Navy SEAL Dylan Van Doren knows a thing or two about keeping his enemies at bay. But even though Astrid Hughes is—was—the maid of honor in his brother's disaster of a non-wedding, she doesn't look like his enemy. She doesn't feel like one, either, when he pulls her into his arms and kisses her senseless.


Astrid values loyalty above everything else. So it's totally wrong to let herself fall into a vacation fling with her best friend's ex's brother, right? Maybe not if they keep it a secret. And if they promise each other they'll walk away at the end of the week, no matter what.

REVIEW:  SEDUCED BY THE BEST MAN  (KINDLE WORLDS:  BAREFOOT BAY: SEALS ON VACATION) BY ZOE YORK

 

Seduced by the Best Man (Barefoot Bay Kindle World)Seduced by the Best Man by Zoe York

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


How can you not fall for the warrior with a fearless attitude but the soul of a romantic? Rough around the edges Dylan has a secret. He believes in the forever kind of love that true romantics fantasize about. Problem? He needs to find his other half. Astrid is a little bit quirky, naive, loyal and about to help break his brother's heart. A scrapped wedding and picturesque island could be just the setting for the love of a lifetime. Seduced by the Best Man was an easy read that flew by. My one critique would be because I loved these characters so much, I wish the story had been longer.

Former soldier Tucker Prescott has no clue what sent his wife running back to Barefoot Bay, but he’s not letting her go that easy.

For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant.

The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.

REVIEW: TROUBLEMAKER BY LINDA HOWARD

 

TroublemakerTroublemaker by Linda Howard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Troublemaker served as a reminder of why I'm a Linda Howard fan, but it took me completely out of my comfort zone. I am not now, nor have I ever been a paranormal fan, but there are authors that can get me to take a chance on a new genre. Ms. Howard is one of those. Her fast paced stories have always drawn my attention. Bo and Morgan had the complexity that I love and the mystery that I crave from suspense novels. More thriller than romance this story has chops to get the heart pumping but proved a little much for my taste.
