ARC Review: Only A Duke Will Do (To Marry A Rogue) by Tamara Gill

With a flair for the dramatic and the heart of a dreamer, it's no wonder Tamara Gill writes romance. Her attention to imagery and the tempo of her delivery are all on full display in Only A Duke Will Do. Her vision speaks to the romantic deep within believers in love and happily ever after. Merrick and Isolde were a dream interrupted by heartbreak, but the chance to begin again was always in the cards for them. The heart will not be denied and Tamara Gill has been blessed with a haunting gift of classic proportions.

Release Date:  February 20, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Devonshire, England, 1820

Determined to avoid the strife-filled marriage of his parents, Marcus, the Duke of Ulvercombe, wants an amenable, biddable wife, and has set his cap for a certain pretty miss. Unfortunately, her vastly opinionated, frustrating, and lamentably beautiful guardian, Lady Clara Tinniswood, keeps distracting him, tempting him to consider a far more tempestuous—and passionate—union.

Recently widowed Lady Clara Tinniswood wants only to organize a quiet new life for herself, beyond the control of any man. But one shockingly unguarded moment while confronted by Marcus’s gloriously naked body catapults her headlong into a forbidden passion and threatens to undermine all her well-laid plans.

Even if Marcus abandons his sweet ideal and surrenders to his growing desire for Clara, there's one unalterable issue which could destroy their hopes forever...

ARC Review: Distracting The Duke (Wayward In Wessex) by Elizabeth Keysian

The Lady and the Duke are like fire and ice. THEY DON'T MIX. He wants even tempered and sweet. She is volatile and opinionated. She wants to make her own choices and live a life beyond the control of a man. He wants a woman unlike her. Or does he? Distracting the Duke is a tale of passion that merges a battle of wills with a meeting of minds and ultimately the stealing of hearts. Mine included.

Release Date:  February 21, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

 

He’s not handling it well.

 

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

 

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

 

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

 

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

 

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Release Date:  February 21, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Two hearts can’t merge until they get their signals straight.

 

The McClendon Holiday Series, Book 4

 

Love is a gamble.

 

Renee McClendon has had enough of pretty boys with fancy cars, pricey shoes, and empty souls. Never mind they’ve all matched her teen-diary version of the perfect man. None of them panned out.

 

She’s ready for someone who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. A regular guy who doesn’t brag about everything he owns and the size of his…portfolio. And if she doesn’t find him by January 1, she’s closing the book on love. For good.

 

He’s willing to roll the dice.

 

When Patrick Dunlap drives the pretty, polished marketing professional home in his limousine, he figures she’ll be as superficial as all the other women who assume he’s a lowly chauffeur. Until they learn he owns the company, and their eyes light up—with dollar signs.

 

To his surprise, they hit it off so well he finds himself withholding that one tiny detail. But when the truth inevitably comes out, he fears the forever girl he’s longed for could disappear faster than a gust of winter wind.

 

Warning: Contains one half-serious bet, a whole list of secret longings, and one Cinderella fella who’s Prince Charming in disguise—and who’s never late for the ball.

REVIEW: A HUSBAND BY NEW YEAR'S (MCCLENDON HOLIDAY) BY SEAN D. YOUNG

 

A Husband by New Year's (The McClendon Holiday Series Book 4)A Husband by New Year's by Sean D. Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: A Husband by New Year's (McClendon Holiday) by Sean D. Young

The best way to sum up Patrick and Renee is through the words of a familiar melody. The first line of an old Keith Whitley song fits this couple perfectly. I have always loved the tune, When You Say Nothing at All and in the opening verse of that song it says " It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart." Simple words, perfect description, beautiful sentiment. Ms. Young managed to convey a ton of realistic emotion in a classically uncomplicated story. The most gifted of artists are not remembered for the words they say or the things they do but the magic they leave behind. That is how A Husband By New Year's made me feel. Like I was standing in the presence of something special.

SYNOPSIS

 

Years ago, Rolling Stone magazine dubbed the nine collective children of the most famous band in the world “Rock Royalty.” Now all grown up, the princes and princesses are coming back to L.A.’s Laurel Canyon to discover if love can be found among the ruins of a childhood steeped in sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.

Love Me Two Times (Rock Royalty, #8)Love Me Two Times by Christie Ridgway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Love Me Two Times (Rock Royalty) by Christie Ridgway

How a reader knows they just read something special.

When a reader counts down the days to the date of release.

When you make a pact with yourself not to cry and go through a box of Kleenex anyway.

From beginning to end, wanting to experience the journey all over again.

Love Me Two Times is a reminder of why I love the Rock Royalty series. A family born from chaos and pain proves that the power of love can conquer anything. Through times of sorrow, moments of danger, instances of happiness and the surprises too numerous to count Ren, Cilla, Beck, Bing, Cami, Payne, Reed, Brody and Walsh learned that blood ties are not the only thing that helps a family thrive. Deep connections, faith and an abundance of love are just as powerful. In Love Me Two Times, Beck and Jewel's journey is one of healing, forgiveness and self enlightenment. It's not always easy and there are rainy days before the sun breaks through, but the trek is worth every tear.

Sin for Me (The Devil's Music, #1)

 

 

SIN FOR ME (THE DEVIL'S MUSIC) BY LISA MARIE PERRY

 

 

Release Date:  February 21, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

For Dante Bishop, music died the night he found his father’s body next to a syringe of lithium. Ditching Atlanta, Dante jumped on his Harley and left the family business to his sister. She became the heart and soul of Devil’s Music—until the board, including Dante’s ex, masterminded a takeover. Years later, Dante’s doing something he never thought he’d do: returning to Georgia to put his songwriting skills to good use. Reuniting with Chelsea Coin only sweetens the deal.

As the perfectionist COO of Devil’s Music, Chelsea doesn’t dwell on the past. If she did, she’d never forgive herself for betraying the Bishops in a corporate power grab. Now Chelsea needs help to save the company, and Dante’s a nonnegotiable part of the arrangement. Still brooding and hot as hell, Dante wastes no time stirring up unfinished business—and carnal memories Chelsea would rather keep buried. She’s come too far to risk everything on a man. But for desire this intense, she might just enjoy the sexiest mistake of her life.

ARC Review: Sin For Me (The Devil's Music) by Lisa Marie Perry

Like a rhythmic vibration that starts way down deep, Ms. Perry grabs the mike and takes center stage with Sin For Me. From the trail of broken hearts to the internal scheming and the combustible fireworks Chelsea and Dante throw at each other, the drama is real. The temptation is temperamental and the romance is as seductive as the catchy tunes The Devil's Music produces. What's a little romance without a bit of mystery thrown in to stir the flames? Sin For Me is intensely sensual and highly emotional. I'll be holding my breath waiting to see what happens next.

But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map.

I'm loving this pattern of courageous women heroines and hope it continues in the future. Nic is more than a pretty face. She's smart, determined and willing to fight for what she believes in. Even if it means she has to break her own heart to succeed in a male dominated world. Love Runs Deep not only breaks a few rules but it examines discrimination and stepping up and doing what's right in the face of adversity. Kyle and Nic lead with their hearts and have no qualms about speaking their minds. Inspiring story of redemption and fairness.

SYNOPSIS

 

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

Cassia Locke hasn’t played at Blasphemy since a caving accident left her with a paralyzing fear of the dark. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

SYNOPSIS

 

Designed for love…

No one says no to fiery but talented home designer Neve Harper—which is how she convinces her elusive neighbor, Duke Kennicot, to help out with her latest renovation job. Not only is Duke a design aficionado, he’s got the inside scoop on the cabin’s owner. And since Neve’s ulterior motive is a romance with the boss, Duke is her ideal wingman. Except from the moment they’re alone in the remote Ozark mountain location, Neve discovers Duke is just as headstrong—and a whole lot sexier—than she ever realized. Duke has always made it clear she’s not his type. Yet the simmering tension between them says otherwise….

Duke had been warned to steer clear of hot-tempered Neve, but his resolve is lessening with every heated exchange—and every smoldering touch. By the time Neve unearths a dangerous, age-old mystery buried on the property, Duke is ready to do just about anything to keep the brazen beauty safe….

She's head strong and high maintenance. He's talented and moody. Mixing business with pleasure never ends well. So why does Neve find herself in a danger of losing more than her heart to the one man that makes her blood boil in a totally inappropriate way? Roxanne Smith packed To the Studs full of unbelievable twists that added drama to the plot line but took away from the romance. I love a bit of mystery but not when it detracts from the story instead of enhancing it. The antics of the main characters were hilarious and made for some fun moments, but I could have done with out the suspense angle.

WHISPER OF LOVE (LOVE IN BLOOM: THE BRADENS OF PEACEFUL HARBOR) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

Release Date:  February 22, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

The Bradens are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Whisper of Love (Love in Bloom: The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor) by Melissa Foster

A twist of fate, a splash of irony and whole lot of heart prove to be the driving force behind Whisper of Love. Melissa Foster does it again with laughter, love and soul stirring emotion. Tempest has a big heart and the love of a good family, but she has yet to find her heart's desire, her soul mate like her siblings have done. Nash is a man with an abundance of love to give, but a past tragedy has shaped him into a man of caution. Add to that a beautiful, yet mischievous little boy and the heart melting begins. Whisper of Love has everything from drama, to humour, to precious moments of insight. The best way to describe Tempest, Nash and Phillip's journey would be a family in the making. A count your blessings story with a dash of faith thrown in.
