Release Date:  June 5, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

To save her family’s business, fledging CEO Daisy Cater must win the bid on a resort on St. Maarten. There’s a small catch, though.

This wouldn’t be so bad…if only rule-maker Daisy weren’t paired with her bitter rival, the hot and broody Alexander Gillard. Keeping her enemy close just became a whole lot harder.

 

Alexander “Zan” Gillard didn't expect to be partnered with gorgeous Daisy at the idyllic singles retreat. A challenge that has them cuffed together ignites an explosive chemistry, and soon Zan wants more than four days with this bewitching woman who is nothing like he expected her to be.

 

But their families are at odds and reality awaits them at home, along with a betrayal that threatens to blow their newfound trust apart...

 Taming the CEOTaming the CEO by Hayson Manning

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Romeo and Juliet got some stiff competition from Daisy and Zan. Feuding families, business rivals and a match that no one saw coming. Taming the CEO takes it's cues from a classic but decided to lighten the mood. Hayson Manning didn't sugarcoat the odds but spiced up the attraction. Quick, enjoyable tale.

Release Date:  June 5, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

In 1814 London, England, a lady is defined as a demure, delicate flower. Miss Francine Annesley is not that lady. If men were like plants, she would have a garden of admirers to choose from instead of the thorn in her side since childhood, Julian Beckwith. But she would make an even worse nun than she does a lady, which will be her fate if she can't dig up a husband before the Season ends. However, Julian is not an option.

 

With only ten short days left in the Season, Francine doesn't have time to waste on petty squabbles or knee-weakening kisses, even if Julian's offer to fulfill her every wish rouses her curiosity. It seems men are more complicated than plants. Too bad love bloomed at the most inconvenient of times...

 

Each book in the Ladies of Passion series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

How To Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days (Ladies of Passion)How To Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days by Harmony Williams

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It takes a gifted author to tackle sexism and self - esteem while crafting characters that are remarkably independent but still struggle with many vulnerabilities. How to Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days takes place during a time when being a woman was considered a disability. Women were seen as window dressing more than anything else. Francine seeks to change that. She's quite book smart but lacks the ability to interact and read people. Her challenges and fears are put on full display when an ultimatum is issued. With marriage on the agenda but no matches of the heart on the horizon, will this ultimate outsider find her forever love? Or will she discover her savior has had her back all along?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The draw of Noah Blake is he's flawed. He struggles with his past, his future and his heart like everyone else. He's just better at hiding it. That is why I am quickly becoming enamored with this character. Getting caught up is easy. Waiting for what happens next? Not so much. Shameful is an exciting addition to a mouthwatering series.

HOUSE RULES (DOSSIER) BY CATHRYN FOX

 

 

 

Release Date:  June 5, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

The last thing I expected to find in my dossier was sexy stockings, a plane voucher to London and an invitation to dance at a gentleman’s club. I’m a quiet museum curator for God’s sake. No way, no how am I going to slide down a pole for a bunch of over privileged, narcissistic men—until I see Sean Fraser, my childhood crush, enter the establishment. Since I’m no longer that overweight teen with braces and mousey hair, there is no way he’ll recognize me. Hmmm… Maybe I’ll give him a fake name—and a private dance. That ought to make him finally notice me, right?

What the hell is Kennedy Lane doing sliding down a pole in a private Gentlemen’s club? I’m not sure, and while I know she’s hands off, I want her. I’ve always wanted her. She might have been too young for me back in the day. Now, not so much. Hands off leads to hands on after a private dance, and while Kennedy spends the weekend pretending to be someone she isn’t, I know full well who she is. And I’m not quite ready to let her hang up her stockings when the show is over.

When Things Got Hot in TexasWhen Things Got Hot in Texas by Lori Wilde

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Having read each author at one time or another, I had to have this anthology. This many fireworks in one place is bound to set off some sparks. Katie Lane strikes a bulls eye to the heart with her alpha heroes and equally irresistible female counterparts. The pieces always seem to fit, with Lori Wilde at the helm, there's bound to be a hit. Cynthia D'Alba sets the canvas ablaze. She pens feisty women not afraid to be brave and men who tempt the senses and fight for what they want.


Texas Daze is a second chance story for every responsible, brokenhearted dreamer. Eli and Marti are people of strength, who have struck out in the game of love. When a fluke accident has them crossing paths, can two people always in control, take a risk and learn to let go? Looking for love, laughter and happily ever after, When Things Got Hot In Texas is sure to deliver it all.

A Sky Full of Stars (The Shaughnessy Brothers, #5)A Sky Full of Stars by Samantha Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Creativity is a trait that continues to draw me to author, Samantha Chase. Never has her understanding of the heart been more obvious than Owen Shaughnessy. I knew A Sky Full of Stars would be special and Ms. Chase did not disappoint. In Owen she dreamed up a unique hero that is as clueless as he is unforgettable. He's book smart but emotionally he's like a baby bird learning to spread his wings. He feels deeply, yet doesn't fully ascertain how to express what he feels. In Brooke, he finds his total opposite, but he also learns to not overthink life, LIVE IT. In no way should this couple work but they do. They bring out the best in each other as each learns how to be true themselves.

The Campbells are a rambunctious clan. Good times, fiery personalities and tons of love are what the Campbells are all about, but beneath all the fun lies some turbulent emotions that need to be worked through. Formal Arrangement is Alex's turn to shine. This single dad has a little girl he adores, a family he loves and guilt that never seems to subside. From a tragic loss to the responsibilities that weigh him down, Alex just can't catch a break. Enter Lauren, nanny extraordinaire. Lauren lightens up his days and fills his heart with an emotion he refuses to acknowledge. Can he let go of the pain of his past to claim his Ms. Right? It's always a pleasure to read Kylie Gilmore. With sweet stories that are as moving as the characters are irresistible, it's obvious why she makes up at least half of my favorites list.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Whenever I read a Mira Lyn Kelly novel, I'm reminded of a greeting card. With a few choice words and in a matter of minutes, each knows how to leave their mark. The Wedding Date Bargain uses Ms. Kelly's quick witted sense of humor to charm readers as she spins a tale of romance and awkward situations to warm even the coldest of hearts. Sarah is a bit neurotic. Max, a tad clueless. Yet underneath all the crazy you find a story of devotion that leaves readers with a good feeling from beginning to end.

Take a wild ride with Virgin for a Prince by J.S. Scott!


***************************


Diana:


Who ever said that money fixes everything? Well, I can tell you firsthand that they were dead wrong. I was born an only child to one of the wealthiest families in America, and all I've ever felt was loneliness and a sense that I may have been adopted. I don't fit in. I never have. When all my mother wanted was for me to marry into another prestigious family, I wanted an education and to just be...normal. It's not that I don't appreciate having a roof over my head and everything my heart desires. Problem is, what I really want is something money can't buy. I want to be loved for who I am and not how much money my father acquired before his death.


At the age of twenty-four, I'm still a virgin, and a freak among my peers because of my fascination with all things history and literature, my bad hair, my bizarre eyes, and my complete lack of style. When my mother wants to send me away to a house party on a little-known island nation, I jump at the opportunity. Hardly anybody from the outside gets invited to Rubare Virgina, and it's rich in history. Sure, I realize that she's aiming high and trying to marry me off to some pompous, obscenely wealthy prince, but I've decided I'd resolve that problem at the masquerade ball at the beginning of my stay on the island.


I'd lose my virginity to the first guy who would have me, making myself ineligible to be any royal's wife on Rubare Virgina. Then I could just enjoy my stay in my own nerdy sort of way. Pretty simple. Until it becomes...complicated.


Prince Niccolito is nothing like I thought he would be. He's real. He's honest. And he's hotter than Florida in July. He's everything a woman could ever want or need, and he's loyal to those he cares about and his country. But there's just one tiny problem: I'm no longer the virgin he needs to marry. I'd forfeited my opportunity for more with Prince Nic when I'd given away my virginity at the masquerade ball to a complete stranger. Could it be that I've finally found my Prince and my heart's desire only to have it torn away because of my one stupid indiscretion??


Like the first novella trilogy, Taken by a Trillionaire, these novellas are escapism fantasy. If you are looking for a historically accurate representation of a monarchy or a serious depiction of how royals maintain their bloodlines, neither trilogies are for you. If you love larger than life characters and fun storylines that take you to exotic places with sexy alpha men, then welcome to our imaginary kingdoms. The men are insanely rich, the traditions are potentially deadly, and the sex will leave you craving a night on this dark isle.

Virgin for the Prince (Taken By A Trillionaire Series)Virgin for the Prince by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Ms. Scott has always been good at showing her saucy side. Instant attraction and heated trysts are synonymous with a J.S. Scott novel. Virgin for the Prince was different. She lead with the sweet and built up to the savory. For Diana and Nic she turned to the classics. Hints of stories that have stayed in our hearts and followed us into adulthood. She keeps the fantasy alive for every little girl that is not a size two, lacks grace and does not fit the mold. There's a Prince Charming waiting for her, if she's just believes. Positive message and deeply moving story.

SYNOPSIS

 

Niall

I have twenty-eight days to find the perfect wife…

On paper, it seems like I need a life coach, but I’ve managed to get a decent grip on the single-dad thing. As a sought-after photographer with a sexy Irish accent, I have no problem attracting women. Especially crazy ones who can’t take no for an answer. But now, I’m backed in a corner, and both mine and my daughter’s futures are being threatened.
The plan is simple: find a fake fiancée, introduce her at my company’s gala, and save my job. A chance meeting with a tall, leggy blonde who looks like she could use a night out is the perfect solution. Beautiful, sane, and she has a kid? We have a winner.
The relationship is a ruse, but I didn’t count on her being unforgettable. A lie brought us together, but now I have no intention of letting her go.

Laken

I can’t buy my way onto Madison Avenue…

I didn’t bust my ass in college to be a nanny. Unfortunately, a 4.0 GPA and sucking up did nothing to secure me a coveted Tate & Cane internship. I’m not proud of being a nanny-for-hire to get my foot in the door, but my wealthy employer has connections, so I do what I need to—until one outrageous proposal changes everything.
In one afternoon, I find myself fake engaged with a fake new family. I’m not a liar, but he assumes the kid is mine. I should set the record straight. There’s only one problem. My new “fiancé” is a photographer for Tate & Cane. He’s my “in.”
If I can hold on to this charade long enough, I can get the job and the man of my dreams. I’m winging this completely unsupervised. Game on.

REVIEW:  UNSUPERVISED (KINDLE WORLDS:  IMPERFECT LOVE)  BY CORA KENBORN

 

UnsupervisedUnsupervised by Cora Kenborn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


What began by chance, lead to chaos and heartbreak. A mutually beneficial arrangement between strangers could end up costing more than either are willing to pay. Unsupervised is as adorable as it is unbelievable. Niall and Laken are equal parts crazy and amazing. Each has managed to totally screwed themselves over. The humor lies is watching them dig themselves out. Ms. Kenborn makes messy appear sexy in this over the top, yet entertaining hard to put down read.

FAMEDFAMED by Magan Vernon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Thank you Kindle Worlds for bringing an author like Magan Vernon to my attention. Her wit enchants and graces ever page. Her heart is evident inside of the characters she writes. Ms. Vernon turned out to be a perfect fit, for the angsty, mischievous and captivating Kendall Ryan inspired Imperfect Love series. In Famed, Mary James is as clueless in love as she is in life. A mail clerk, a leaked sex tape (FAKED) and a couple of matchmaking mamas are about to give her just the antidote she needs. A makeover of the heart. Irresistible fun.

One-Night Stand-In

 

 

ONE NIGHT STAND IN BY (KINDLE WORLDS:  IMPERFECT LOVE) T. GEPHART

 

 

 

Release Date:  June 6, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Sarah Madison loved working at Tate & Cane Enterprises.

While she looked and, for the most part, acted conservatively—she was a gladiator in the boardroom. The fast-paced, energetic work environment not only fed her need for corporate blood but also allowed her to work for one of her role models, Olivia Cane—living proof a woman really can have it all.

And after months of paying her dues, she was finally offered the promotion she’d been vying for. Which was great, except for the fact she had to share the position with a new guy they brought in especially for the role.

Kyle Drake was smart, experienced, and probably just as good, if not better, in negotiations. And if she wasn’t careful, prove he could do the job without her. Add in good-looking and an incredibly sexy smooth talker, and everyone in the office either wanted to be him or sleep with him. Which Sarah could have totally ignored if he hadn’t been the stranger she’d married in Vegas during a fake ceremony six months earlier.

He was supposed to be her one-night stand, a stand-in for a ceremony that wasn’t even legally binding. They were never even going to see each other again. Hell, she apparently hadn’t even known his real last name at the time. It was the only time she’d ever done something completely reckless and spontaneous.

It figured that one time would come back and bite her where it hurt.

One-Night Stand-InOne-Night Stand-In by T. Gephart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Authors are readers. They have favorite authors, characters and stories. T. Gephart put her love for Kendall Ryan on full display with One Night Stand In. Not only did she give glimpses of beloved characters that Ms. Ryan created, she remained true to the series by putting her heart and soul into making it her own. Kyle is a man of mystery. With his bedroom eyes and his entrancing personality, he can have any woman he wants. Unless the woman he wants is Sarah. Sarah is tough in the boardroom, but lost outside of the office. The one time she let her guard down, she ended up getting involved with the wrong man. Kyle is charming, attractive and off limits. Too bad she's already tasted the temptation. With one story Ms. Gephart has turned me into a fan.

THE RUN IN (KINDLE WORLDS: IMPERFECT LOVE) BY KELLY ELLIOT

 

 

 

Release Date:  June 6, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

​Becoming the new Marketing Manager at Tate and Cane was a game changer. I was hell bent on proving I deserved this job, and that it wasn’t my cousin Sterling Quinn who had helped me score the new job title. Him being one of the CEO’s best friend—didn’t help the rumors.

 

Well screw that. 

 

Ten years of sweat and hard work was the reason I was sitting in a large corner office with a killer Manhattan view. More focused than I’d ever been, it was time to take the bull by the horns.

 

And God help the person who stood in in my way.

 

********

Things I left behind in Seattle, Washington: A promising career at a top marking firm, the past I was desperate to escape, and obviously my sense of direction. It was because of all of those reasons I was standing in the middle of New York City lost and cursing at my phone.

 

If I didn’t get to Tate and Cane soon, I wouldn’t only be late, but also blow the chance to make the good impression on my new boss, Mason Quinn. And I needed that more than anything.

 

One wrong turn, an unfortunate collision, and an expensive suit drenched in my soy chia tea latte was not how I wanted to start my first day.

Then there was the other little problem I had. The drop dead gorgeous man whose suit I’d ruined was my new boss.

 

And boy did he look pissed.​

Kelly Elliott knows how to stir up trouble. Mason is no Prince Charming. He's arrogant, rude and frustrating as ****, but he can light a fire as quickly as he can douse the flame. Saylor is like a lamb to the slaughter. She's smart as a whip, but allows her insecurities to dictate her actions. He's the boss. She's the newbie, but they share a determination to make their mark. Mason is an acquired taste. He's hard to like, but undeniably unforgettable.

TIED (KINDLE WORLDS: IMPERFECT LOVE) BY KIM KARR

 

 

 

 

Release Date:  June 6, 2017

 

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

I was rich, single, and connected, which meant a steady diet of beautiful women wherever I went.

I really did think I had the perfect life.

Until I went and married a supermodel I’d just met, and everything changed.

 

Of course there were choices. But the word annulment meant giving her up, and I never give up anything. Still, I was a bachelor at heart, and having a wife, well, I didn’t really know what to do with that.

After only forty-eight hours of marriage, I had already gone and screwed everything up.

 

Now I have thirty days to prove to my new wife that I’m husband material. There’s only one problem—I don’t even know what husband material means. However, I’m certain that won’t stop me from excelling at it.

 

My wife tells me it isn’t going to be easy. That I have numerous issues to overcome.

 

First, there’s my jealousy. It needs to be tamed. Did I flip over the fact that her latest picture was causing men around the world to do dirty things all over the covers she graced? Hell, yes. I couldn’t help myself though. When her photo went viral, my caveman instincts kicked in, and I demanded she quit her job and stay home—barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. I can work on that, right?

 

Then there’s my mother. I need to convince her that my new wife is not the money hungry floozy she called her. Did my mother actually call her that? Yes. I can’t help it that my mother wants me to get rid of my new wife. The problem is what my mother wants, she always gets one way or another. Still, turning my mother’s opinion around can’t be that hard, can it?

 

There are many other issues, but according to my new wife, those are minor compared to the biggest one—she says I will never be able to accept being tied down.

 

Don’t worry—I got this one. I intend to prove to her in no uncertain terms that being tied up, down, or horizontal is just what this Upper East Sider needs.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ms. Schultz does something unique with her love of romance. She masterfully pens a tale of girl power that is strongly inspired by chick flicks. Online dating, unwanted matchmaking and the goofiness that is friendship, are at the center of this feel good read. Rae is the friend you can't help but love quirks and all. Her snark may be frustrating but adds to her charm. Every word that needs to be said, but I could never say is what Rae could voice without a second thought.

REVIEW:  HER FAVORITE DUKE (THE 1797 CLUB) BY JESS MICHAELS

 

Her Favorite Duke (The 1797 Club #2)Her Favorite Duke by Jess Michaels

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Her stories may be scandalous, but Ms. Michaels uses her canvas in a twofold way. To entertain and to tackle social issues such as poverty, sexism, rape and other types of injustices that were just as prevalent years ago as they are in modern society today. Behind the heated trysts, the suspicious happenings, betrayals and crude behavior, lie stories of survival that inspire with their strength of character and abundance of hope. Her Favorite Duke is one of those beautifully written pieces of art. Margaret is a woman determined to make her voice heard. She loves her family, but longs to follow her heart. Simon is a man of honor, but his heart's desire has him questioning all that he holds dear including his precious honor. Will he let his pride cost him his greatest treasure?

That is, until he purchases a night with a call girl who makes his blood run hot and has him forgetting about his fear of commitment.

At all.

Can't Buy Me Love (Butler, Vermont #2)Can't Buy Me Love by Marie Force

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


My major draw to any author is an ability I like to call author's intuition. All authors have it. Some are better at it than others, but knowing what appeals to readers is an absolute MUST. Whether tempting with subtlety, seducing with heat or teetering on the edge of danger, Marie Force knows how to get inside a readers head and appeal to their deepest emotions. Buried within every story she creates and each character she writes are the fears we struggle with, the values that we've come to love and the hope for our own happily ever after. The faces may be different, but the inner core of the human spirit is wrapped up inside with precious care and heartwarming optimism. Can't Buy Me Love proves that love does not have an age limit and happiness never dies but dreams really can come true.

CALLED OUT (CALLING IT) BY JEN DOYLE

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 29, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Jen Doyle is back with another hot and heartfelt home run of a contemporary romance. Fans of Jill Shalvis should prepare to swoon over Jack and Lola's HEA.

Jack "Ox" Oxford is used to being alone. Granted, when you screw over your friends, being alone isn't always a choice. Playing for the Chicago Watchmen is a last-ditch effort to save his career…and right some of his past wrongs. He's not expecting a warm reception, but he's also not expecting a flat tire to change everything.

Recovering control freak, single mom and semiprofessional chaos wrangler Lola Deacon McIntire doesn't need an arrogant ballplayer to swoop in and save her from anything, much less her flat tire. And she definitely doesn't need her body to betray her and decide this is the guy to wake up her rusty libido. She isn't about to upset her sons' lives for any man—much less one who so clearly doesn't think he's dad material.

Jack never thought he'd find someone who wanted to build a life with him, but the more time he spends with Lola and her boys, the more it starts to feel permanent. Even tough-as-nails Lola concedes there just might be a future here—the big, beautiful, messy future neither of them was looking for—but only if Jack will accept he deserves it.

This book is approximately 100,000 words

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you're looking for with an HEA/HFN. It's a promise!

He's a reforming heartbreaker. She's a workaholic nomad. Neither have a romantic bone in their bodies. Until a wedding, a pact and a kiss lead to an attraction that is not to be missed. I've been head over heels for this band of brothers since Only You, made an appearance on my book shelf. Not only does Ms. Swank dish out some romance, she delivers on the bromance as well. Until You continues that instant connection of love, life and friendship that drives author Denise Grover Swank's novels. Both author and characters make it easy to fall in love with love.

For a person who doesn't normally gravitate towards sports, I seem to keep falling in love with stories about them. There are only a handful of authors able to get me to fall hard and Jennifer Snow is one of them. She puts the heart into a heartless sport with Maybe This Love and brightens up a male dominated world with a bit of girl power. Olivia and Ben are classic romantic comedy with a modern day twist.

REVIEW:  SOMEHOW, SOME WAY (BILLIONAIRE BUILDERS NOVELLA) BY JENNIFER PROBST

 

Somehow, Some Way (Billionaire Builders, #2.5)Somehow, Some Way by Jennifer Probst

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I guess there's feminism running through my veins. It makes my heart glad to watch a woman go toe to toe with the big boys. Charlie does not back down from a challenge. She speaks her mind, follows her heart and has the confidence that most people wish they had. Underneath all the bravado lies a scared little girl, craving acceptance in a male dominated field. Brady is both nemesis and anchor. He pushes her, steadies her and shows her it's okay to be vulnerable. Brady and Charlie are a sassy mix of heart, heat and frenemy that makes for some sticky situations but dishes out some fun times as well.

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL (WILD WEDDING) BY ANN MARIE WALKER

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 30, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to his full, sensual lips - on the surface he’s pure perfection.

Too bad he's an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time.

Everything about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.

So it makes perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.

Cole needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension. Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.

Black Tie Optional (Wild Wedding, #1)Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


He has all the sex appeal of James Bond but all the personality of a modern day Scrooge. What Olivia lacks in sex appeal, she makes up for in heart. Coleman and Olivia are about to learn an important lesson. When you dance with fire, you're bound to get burned. Black Tie Optional fuses heat, heart and humor and strikes cinematic gold. Opposites attract have been done before and quite often, but Ms. Walker manages to keep it light, sexy and full of sass. Spicing it up, while still keeping the class.

THE GIRL WITH THE MAKE - BELIEVE HUSBAND (ROKESBYS) BY JULIA QUINN

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 30, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

While you were sleeping...

 

With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic, determined to nurse her brother back to health. But after a week of searching, she finds not her brother but his best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby. He's unconscious and in desperate need of her care, and Cecilia vows that she will save this soldier's life, even if staying by his side means telling one little lie...

 

I told everyone I was your wife

 

When Edward comes to, he's more than a little confused. The blow to his head knocked out six months of his memory, but surely he would recall getting married. He knows who Cecilia Harcourt is—even if he does not recall her face—and with everyone calling her his wife, he decides it must be true, even though he'd always assumed he'd marry his neighbor back in England.

 

If only it were true...

 

Cecilia risks her entire future by giving herself—completely—to the man she loves. But when the truth comes out, Edward may have a few surprises of his own for the new Mrs. Rokesby.

 The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband (Rokesbys, #2)The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Not very many authors are capable of blending sensitive romance with courageous adventure. Julia Quinn transitions between the two with a smoothness and clarity that appeals to readers like me who are fans of both. The Girl With the Make - Believe Husband exudes classic romance while squeezing in a few modern day subjects. With a strong sense of female empowerment Cecilia sets out in search of answers and ends up facing more than she could have imagined. Edward holds the key to all she seeks, if he can forgive her in the end.

THE MOST DANGEROUS DUKE IN LONDON (DECADENT DUKES SOCIETY) BY MADELINE HUNTER

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 30, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Three sinfully handsome dukes, three scores to settle, three hearts about to meet their matches. All in one thrilling new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter . . .

NOTORIOUS NOBLEMAN SEEKS REVENGE


Name and title:
Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton.


Affiliation:
London’s elite Society of Decadent Dukes.


Family history:
Scandalous.


Personality traits:
Dark and brooding, with a thirst for revenge.


Ideal romantic partner:
A woman of means, with beauty and brains, willing to live with reckless abandon.


Desire:
Clara Cheswick, gorgeous daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.

FAINT OF HEART NEED NOT APPLY


Clara may be the woman Adam wants, but there’s one problem: she’s far more interested in publishing her women’s journal than getting married—especially to a man said to be dead-set on vengeance. Though, with her nose for a story, Clara wonders if his desire for justice is sincere—along with his incredibly unnerving intention to be her husband. If her weak-kneed response to his kiss is any indication, falling for Adam clearly comes with a cost. But who knew courting danger could be such exhilarating fun?

Madeline Hunter’s novels are:

“Brilliant, compelling . . . An excellent read.” —The Washington Post

“Mesmerizing.” —Publishers Weekly

“Pure passion.” —Booklist

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Independent in spirit, mischievous of heart and determined of mind. Characters like Clara are a joy to read because they are inspiring, passionate and full of surprises. Add in a devil like Adam and the temperature quickly goes from frigid to volcanic. Ms. Hunter is good. For every moment that I wanted to hate Adam and his hurtful vendetta, I found myself hurting for him instead. It's easy to judge, but difficult to feel. The Most Dangerous Duke In London is driven by emotions. Some painful and dark, others heated and intense, yet all make for an deeply challenging and sometimes humorous trek.

SYNOPSIS

 

Moving back to Lockhat Bend wasn’t easy for Marianne Stanton. But the smart and sassy firecracker has come with a plan. She’s going to turn her Aunt’s old Honky Tonk into a sleek and successful brewery in the heart of Lockhart Bend. Proving that while her life didn’t go as planned, she could still take the town that judged her harshly as a child by storm. She’s set out to win the upcoming Battle of the Brews at the county festival. The plan is to do it solo...no matter what the annoyingly hot town sheriff has to say. 

Sheriff Trent Wild has a dream—a dream that his favorite honky tonk will never change. For years he can kick back with a cold one and listen to country crooning on the jukebox as couples two-stepped their way around the floor. It’s a dream that’s in peril since master brewer Marianne came back to town, all grown up—and looking damn good—to burst his bubble. Now Trent needs to persuade Marianne that the Honky Tonk is perfect as it is...and that he could be perfect for her, too. 

What starts off as a welcome back to town quickly becomes a battle of wills. Marianne and Trent will find themselves fighting for their separate dreams until a cherry chapstick flavored kiss proves juicier than expected. Now they’ll have to decide if living the dream is worth missing out on the love of a lifetime.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Two opposing forces set off a storm in Leslie North's Stirring Up the Sheriff. It doesn't take a rocket science to figure out how the journey ends, Marianne has had her share of disappointments and bias in her young life. From gossiping small towners and shattering heartaches, but her true strength lies in her spirit. Determination and skill have gotten her through. So when a hunk of a roadblock gets in her way. It's on. Stirring Up the Sheriff proves that even the most written off underdogs, can win the game. Any story that empowers female spirit is a winner in my opinion.

SYNOPSIS

 

When the only girl Joey Bennett ever loved stole his heart and sped off to the city lights, he swore he’d never again surrender his heart or be measured by someone’s big city ideals.

But when a beautiful stranger dances into his bar, he takes up the challenge to prove that his hometown is different.

She left that hell in the rear-view mirror the minute she turned eighteen. New York City is her new hometown where her neighbors are friends and everyone looks out for each other. They keep her safe. But a weekend visit to Oak Grove and one dance with a sexy local threatens to change… everything.

Joey is not like any guy she’s ever met. And she likes that. Long nights stoke Joey and Brittany’s desire to stay together, but reality is different when exposed to the harsh light of day. If Brittany goes back to New York, she’ll be heartbroken. But she promised herself long ago that she wouldn’t ever again live her life looking over her shoulder, wondering what secrets people are hiding and what ugliness lurks in the shadows with no one there to help.

Falling for the Right Brother never takes itself too seriously, yet manages to reiterate a number of adages that may seem cliche, but still ring true. The most important one: In order to achieve true happiness, acceptance of who you are is key.

REVIEW:  THE NANNY ARRANGEMENT (COUNTRY BLUES) BY RACHEL HARRIS

 

The Nanny Arrangement (Country Blues, #2)The Nanny Arrangement by Rachel Harris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


He was her hero. She was his second chance. Bonded by loneliness these childhood outsiders created a friendship that could withstand anything. Except for maybe falling in love. Deacon and Hannah are magic together. They bring out the best in each other. Ms. Harris has created one of her finest works with The Nanny Arrangement. Friendship, sentiment, humor and heart are all subjects easy to relate to and made this story a resounding success.

SHAMELESS BY M. MALONE AND NANA MALONE

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 22, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector...a killer...I am Noah Blake.

There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.

It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak … shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.

But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...

And I’m not allowed to kill this one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Shameless is a mass of contradiction. Around every corner lies a new twist, that could destroy a friendship, break a heart or bring dangerous consequences. Noah is a man of mystery. Lucia is both his secret desire and his worst nightmare. Her quest for answers could prove detrimental to more than their relationship, It could get her killed. Whether you love him or hate him Noah wears many hats. Protector, lover, friend and killer just to name a few, but his complex makeup and the daring mysteries that surround what's in his heart make for a wild ride unlike any other.

TRACKING YOU (REDWOOD RIDGE) BY KELLY MORAN

 

 

Release DateMay 23, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Love isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent.

Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.

Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.

REVIEW: TRACKING YOU (REDWOOD RIDGE) BY KELLY MORAN

 

Tracking You (Redwood Ridge #2)Tracking You by Kelly Moran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Tracking You reminded me why I fell in love with reading. Reading is less about the words on the page, but about the emotions felt. Ms. Moran totally got that. She captured the abject loneliness of a man born to be different and the restlessness and heartache of a woman wanting to be loved. Forced to live in a world void of sound, Flynn has had to overcome many obstacles. His heart and determination have helped him blossom into a caring soul and a loyal friend, but something is still missing. Gabby is full of love to give, but has no one to share it with. Maybe, a fresh set of eyes and a little matchmaking is just what the doctor ordered. Tracking You is sunshine, inspiration, humour and heart rolled into one small powerful package. One taste is never enough.

Release DateMay 23, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello returns with an irresistible series about sexy billionaires and the strong-willed women who tame them.

 

Brett Westerly is his father’s golden child, but it’s come at a cost. As head of the family corporation, he throws himself into his work—hiding in his office is easier than confronting the reality of his broken family.

 

After a bitter divorce that split the family and divided loyalties, the wealthy Westerly matriarch offers an early inheritance to any grandchild who marries and invites the entire family to the wedding. Brett’s brother Spencer rashly gets engaged, and Brett knows it’s his duty to intervene. But he never imagined the unwelcome desire Spencer’s fiery fiancée would spark in him. Now the man who’s used to getting everything he could want has met the one woman he can’t have.

 

Ever since she was a girl, Alisha Coventry considered Spencer and his sister Rachelle the family she didn’t have. When Spencer asks for her help, Alisha has no problem becoming his fake fiancée—until she meets Spencer’s sexy older brother Brett. The chemistry between them is undeniable—forbidden—but as their relationship deepens, Brett is determined to have her.

 

Alisha only wanted to help the family make amends. Now she’s falling for the wrong Westerly.

REVIEW: IN THE HEIR (WESTERLY BILLIONAIRE) BY RUTH CARDELLO

 

In the Heir (Westerly Billionaire, #1)In the Heir by Ruth Cardello

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


There are three lessons that my Grandmother taught me. A person is never too old to stop learning. It's not enough to crave or receive love, you must give love in return and lead by example. She was a wise woman, who was not afraid to practice what she preached. Until the day she died, she led by example in all she did. Including owning up to her mistakes. I still miss her, but carry all she taught me within my heart. The Westerly clan could have used some of her wisdom.

With In the Heir, Ms. Cardello lays the groundwork for rebuilding a broken family.
The Westerlys are far from perfect. Anger and pride has set to destroying a prominent dynasty. Can forgiveness, restore the foundation before it topples completely? In The Heir is a story of romance, friendships and family, that is written and rooted in the most powerful emotion in the world. LOVE.

REVIEW:  IN THE COWBOY'S ARMS (THUNDER MOUNTAIN BROTHERHOOD) BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

 

In the Cowboy's Arms (Thunder Mountain Brotherhood, #9)In the Cowboy's Arms by Vicki Lewis Thompson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


All Matt wanted was to follow his dreams, until he lost himself along the way. It would take a visit home and a tenacious woman to help him find himself again. Ms. Thompson makes it easy to get lost inside her stories. She takes readers through the looking glass with realistic characters and familiar situations. By speaking to the heart she creates masterfully written stories of courage, redemption and introspect. In the Cowboy's Arms is a story of the many loves life offers and the trials faced when it comes time to accept. The hardest scenario to be faced is to relinquish control and trust emotionally. Geena and Matt are learning that some of the best lessons are taught by listening to the heart.

Feel Me (O'Brien Family #4)

 

 

FEEL ME (O'BRIEN FAMILY) BY CECY ROBSON

 

 

Release Date: May 23, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in FEEL ME, Declan, the sexy, driven powerhouse meets the one woman immune to his charm . . .

Declan O’Brien was always driven to take his place among Philly’s elite, working hard for everything he’s earned, including the title of Assistant District Attorney. He’s won seemingly impossible cases, so he’s furious when he’s assigned to lead the one unit he doesn’t want.

Melissa Fenske was born hearing impaired to a neglectful mother, finding solace when she was adopted by a young attorney, now Declan’s boss. As the current Director of Victim Services, Melissa’s livid when Declan is placed in the main unit she oversees. She can’t forget their disastrous first encounter. Or shake how he makes her feel.

Declan considers the assignment another step toward his political aspirations, despite that he can’t get Melissa out of his mind. Melissa sees Declan as egotistical and self-serving, kicking herself for how fast she’s falling for him. Someone as hot, smooth, and perfect as Declan isn’t supposed to want her.

In another situation with any other woman, Declan wouldn’t hesitate to take Melissa to bed. But she is the boss’s daughter, and for once, Declan finds himself wanting more than just a one night stand.

Neither counted on each other. Both just met their match.

REVIEW:  FEEL ME (O'BRIEN FAMILY) BY CECY ROBSON

 

Feel Me (O'Brien Family #4)Feel Me by Cecy Robson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Thank you Cecy Robson. For so long, women have been portrayed as victims who need rescuing, but with stories like Crave Me and Feel Me, Ms. Robson has played a central part in inspiring equality and creating women of courage and scenarios of hope. Life is not always pretty and characters like the O'Brien brothers, their sister Wren and new edition Melissa Fenske prove that out of the darkness, can shine a beautiful light. The O'Brien family has survived sexual abuse, domestic violence, dangerous and demanding careers and lastly falling in love.

Feel Me finds Declan on the cusp of gaining everything he's ever wanted. A successful law career, a possible promotion and continuing his quest to make a difference. Only two things stand in his way. A siren with a warrior spirit and a job opportunity he'd rather forget. Melissa has been a fighter all her life. She has not allowed hearing loss to define her. Her handicap coupled with a traumatic event in her childhood has turned her into a woman with an iron will, but a deeply fragile heart. When a personal tragedy causes the lioness and her arrogant nemesis to join forces, they definitely feel the burn. Full of raw emotion from the sensuous to the heartbreaking, author and story bring to the table a sense of character, heart and strength that proves easy to love.

REVIEW:  SEXY STRANGER BY KENDALL RYAN

 

 

 Sexy StrangerSexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


For Ms. Ryan, first impressions are everything. Within the first five minutes, she tempts, frustrates and grabs a readers attention. Sexy Stranger is no exception. Ironic that an author, who prides herself on first impressions, would create characters that don't make very good ones. At least on each other. In my opinion the heat was on and the battles lines were drawn. Charlie was an uptight city girl, Luke a misunderstood country boy, but pride was a trait both had in spades. She was a woman on the run, trying to prove to herself and those around her that she was more than just an armpiece. He was a man with big dreams and an abundance of old hurts. How is it that two people who make each other crazy, end up making perfect sense? Sexy Stranger is a smartly written story with attitude, heart and a seductive happily ever after that kept me invested throughout every chapter.

Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle Book 8)Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The ultimate playboy is about to meet his match. With a nickname like Brick, Martin Bricker is not father material. His life is one endless party that consists of a revolving door of women, late night parties and all day binges. That is until his huge ego and no morals lifestyle is interrupted by a nightmare he never saw coming. FATHERHOOD! To a precocious, adorable little girl that comes with tons of baggage. What's a guy to do when his world is caving in around him? Grow up, man up and hire an expert.

Enter temporary nanny, Amelia Stacey. A woman with secrets of her own. She has a lot of love to give and no one to share it with. Clueless father and his newly acquired spitfire of a daughter, could be the cure for that. Stories where grown men are brought to their knees by a child that they never knew they wanted and turns out can't live without are my Kryptonite. That inner quality of innocence and vulnerability is more prevalent. Adding a child changes the dynamic of a love story. Gives it a depth that is at times lacking in romance. Ms. Davenport understood that.

REVIEW: ROMANCING THE BACHELOR (THE HAMILTONS) BY DIANE ALBERTS

 

Romancing the Bachelor (Hamilton Family #2)Romancing the Bachelor by Diane Alberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Reading a Diane Alberts story is like being caught in a Riptide. It's easy to become entangled and hard to find the way out. I love reading Ms. Alberts. She can maneuver from light and entertaining to emotionally frustrating, but she always manages to grab hold of her readers and never let go. The Hamiltons are my favorite series because, each story has little more heart, alot more mischief and that dynamic only a family gave make. Romancing the Bachelor is Eric's moment to shine. The man with the five year plan meets his match in Shelby. She's vibrantly frustrating, stubborn, and determined to live by her own rules. Sound familiar. Eric and Shelby are two peas in a pod. Which makes for a volatile relationship, but an exciting romance. There were times the story felt rushed but these characters are as lovable as the series is sizzling.

The Wright BossThe Wright Boss by K.A. Linde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


From the outside, the Wrights seem to have a perfect life. Power and money are in abundance but they seem to have lacked one important factor all their lives. LOVE! For this reason they grew up wild, traumatized and empty. Whether male or female there is never a lack of alpha tendencies, strong personalities are a MUST with this brood. They may not always see eye to eye but when it matters most they have each others backs. What a family. The Wright Boss adds fuel to an already fiery series with spicy characters, wicked dialogue and turbulent emotions. Nobody does complicated like the Wright family. Strong men, opinionated women and heated slightly taboo attractions. Easy is not the way a Wright plays the game, they play for keeps. Ms. Linde came to win and she hit it out of the park with Landon and his siren of a love interest Heidi.

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge.

But I can't see him that way. He's my boss—technically one of the owners of the company where I work—and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

And I don't date men like him.

Until that one time that I catch him in a compromising position when I'm also in need of a last-minute date for a wedding...and then it's not real. It's blackmail.

For one weekend, he's my plus-one.

Beautiful and unobtainable.

From the moment she walked into my office with those stunning blue eyes and crazy sensual curves, she's been on my mind. Three years and never once has she acted interested in me. Usually I flash a million-dollar smile and women fall to their knees, some literally.

Not her.

Then on the occasion that I agree to let another woman do that—fall to her knees—guess who happens to catch us?

It may not be the most conventional way to get on her radar, but I didn't get this far in business without knowing when to seize an opportunity. If this sexy little firecracker with perfectly kissable lips thinks she can blackmail me into attending her cousin's wedding, I'm going to jump at the chance to be her plus-one.

You love her darker side. Now it's time to meet Leatha, the lighter side of Aleatha, as she trades her renowned twists and turns for laughs and love with this sexy new stand-alone romance, PLUS ONE.

REVIEW:   PLUS ONE BY ALEATHA ROMIG

 

Plus OnePlus One by Aleatha Romig

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Duncan and Kimbra are a mess, but an irresistible one all the same. It was hard to stop laughing long enough to experience the next gem this clueless duo threw my way.

He's the boss. - His fancy suits, unlimited funds and animal magnetism make him a catch, but his rep screams "Guard your heart."

She's living the dream. - A job that she loves. A city that has endless possibilities and a boss that stars in some of her wildest fantasies. Her hormones are yelling "Go for it!" but her brain is screaming, "Run Girl!" Which voice will she listen to? Ms. Romig stretches her comedic chops as she tickles the funny bone. Plus One had me wondering why discovering this author took me so long.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It's characters like Riley and Summer and the authors that create them, that remind us how precious and fleeting life really is. Riley is the planner. Summer is the risk taker. Both are survivors, but have handled the experiences in different ways. Summer's recipe is to live life to the fullest, experience all there is to explore and leave her mark on the world.

Release Date:  May 16, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

He’s been off-limits for years.

But now he’s leaving.

High school teacher Candace Keane and police chief Adam “Ting” Tingley have maintained a polite but necessary distance for years. Ting and her father, the former mayor and now lieutenant governor, never got along. Candace and Ting knew where the lines were drawn. And they didn’t cross them, even though they’d very much wanted to.

But in the wake of a tragedy and looming separation, they might just throw caution to the wind, if only for a little while.

Meanwhile, Coraleigh Boyle and Clay London know exactly where their lines are drawn, and continue to play their own tortured version of keep-away.

This 35,000-word novella will be released between Sharp Practice (Bourbonland Book 1) and Notice of Appeal (Bourbonland Book 2)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ms. Bramseth always thinks ahead. Stave and Hoop is evidence of that. Between Candace and Adam, as well as Clay and Coraleigh, there is no lack of drama. Stave and Hoop whets the appetite for the main course. I loved the back history, but am anticipating the main event.

Perfect Storm by Cheryl Douglas

 

 

 

PERFECT STORM (THE EXES: HOTLINE) BY CHERYL DOUGLAS

 

 

 

 

Release Date:  May 17, 2017

 

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Jace

Dark. Dangerous. Messed up. Yeah, I may be all of those things, but with her I’m not. She taught me how to love, how to be a one woman man. Except now my woman wants to leave me, ‘cause I can’t promise her forever. I know I’d never want anyone else but she wants the ring to prove it. Not to mention the baby. But if she knew about my past she’d run far and fast. Then I’d have no choice but to chase her, ‘cause I can’t let her get away.

Cory

I hate him. I love him. I want him. I need him. I hate myself for being weak and caving every time he touches me. But I can’t help myself. He’s just that good. I can’t get over him if I’m always under him, but he’s not letting me go without a fight and you’d have to have an iron will to resist this man.


The Exes are Hotline novellas, a ‘line’ that promises a HEA and NO Cheating with a few caveats: short standalone page turners with dirty words, naughty scenes, and possessive Alpha heroes told from the first person POV. If you like it hot, this is the series for you.

Cory and Jace don't just burn up the sheets. They set the pages on fire. Ms. Douglas always delivers. With Perfect Storm, she does what she does best.

HEALING THE QUARTERBACK (WILDHORSE RANCH BROTHERS) BY LESLIE NORTH

 

 

Release Date:  May 17, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Charlie Wild knows how to score. On and off the field he’s been a force to be reckoned with since his father taught him how to throw a spiral in the back pasture of Wildhorse Ranch. But a recent injury calls into question his ability to play football and points a finger at his wild child reputation. He’s been given an ultimatum: overhaul his image by renovating his hometown hospital or get off the field.

 

The last thing Dr. Dylan Rose needs is yet another man telling her what to do and certainly not what to do with her hospital. She’d left Houston and the sports stars she’d fixed there, tired of watching big bulky men beat each other up for fun. So when Charlie Wild limps into her hospital she wants nothing more than to fix his hot body up and see that great ass walk out the door.

 

Charlie is taken by the sexy doctor. Her sweet smile hides a sharp tongue that he enjoys baiting just about as much as he loves kissing it. He’s on board for following her prescriptions and more than willing to teach her new ways to score in the sheets. But when it comes to the final seconds of this play he’s going to have to decide what is more important: The doctor he’s learned to love, or the game he just can’t quit...

REVIEW:  HEALING THE QUARTERBACK (WILDHORSE RANCH BROTHERS) BY LESLIE NORTH

 

Healing the Quarterback (Wildhorse Ranch Brothers Book 2)Healing the Quarterback by Leslie North

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Charlie Wild is like a kid in a candy store when it comes to women. Fame, money and his skill on the field, has made him a household name with a playboy rep. When injury comes calling, this wild child starts falling. This could prove to be the wake up call he needs to both his heart and his image. Dylan Rose and her healing hands have played a part in some of the best sports stars recoveries. She loves what she does, but has no time for bossy male egos. Charlie represents all the traits she despises. Arrogance, hardheadedness and a god complex that unleashes her sharp tongue. The sparks fly, the barbs land and the feeling overflow. Healing The Quarterback makes a great case for why Leslie North readers always come back for more.

New Leash on Life (The Dogfather, #2)

 

 

NEW LEASH ON LIFE (THE DOGFATHER) BY ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE

 

 

Release Date:  May 19, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Former attorney and current dog whisperer Shane Kilcannon doesn’t like to lose. At anything. So when he messes up his chance with a beautiful stranger whose confident smile and haunted eyes intrigue him more than any woman he’s ever met, he’s ready to snarl like one of his beloved pit bulls. But Shane’s work with the wildest and wariest of his family’s rescue dogs has taught him patience…and persistence. When his father asks him to work alongside Chloe, helping to convince the locals to support her groundbreaking tourism plans, he agrees…as long as she is willing to help him by giving a temporary home to one misunderstood dog.

Chloe Somerset has built a reputation in the tourism industry as someone with big ideas that put little places on the map, and she’s confident she can do the same for Bitter Bark, North Carolina. All she has to do is convince one small town to change its name, open her germophobic heart to a dog with a penchant for face-licking, and avoid the landmines of local politics when her plans divide the townspeople. But none of that is as scary as the feeling of falling hard for a handsome charmer who whispers all the right things and tempts Chloe to forget a lifetime of hard lessons. Shane might be the best trainer in the family, with an instinct for how to get through to the creatures who need care the most, but he’s met his match with Chloe and it’ll take every trick he knows to teach her to fall in love.
