REVIEW:  THE BILLIONAIRE'S PRIVATE SCANDAL (INVESTED IN LOVE) BY JENNA BAYLEY - BURKE

 

 The Billionaire's Private ScandalThe Billionaire's Private Scandal by Jenna Bayley-Burke

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Pride, insecurities and betrayal set the stage for a complicated, frustrating and dramatic romance. Without trust there can never be love. Megan and Brandon built a relationship based on lust and confused it with love. When the storm came, their foundation wasn't strong enough to withstand the fall out. Self destructive behavior, misunderstandings and secrets toppled what was thought to be an everlasting love. Will regret and forgiveness offer up a second chance? The Billionaire's Private Scandal had a strong start but the race to the finish line stalled. The constant back and forth, gave me a touch of whiplash. I wish the main characters had worked things out sooner.

REVIEW:  THE DUKE MEETS HIS MATCH (INFAMOUS SOMERTONS) BY TINA GABRIELLE

 

The Duke Meets His MatchThe Duke Meets His Match by Tina Gabrielle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


My love of historical romance is a longstanding one. It began with authors like Judith McNaught and Julia Quinn, but has expanded to include authors such as Darcy Burke and Vanessa Kelly among others. Tina Gabrielle sends me back to that time when I first discovered the awe of this magical genre. The battle of wills, the blending of hearts. Women of strength, times of desperation and domineering yet captivating men of means. The Duke Meets His Match is all that I expect and want romance to be. The place where hearts meet and wishes come true.

The most prolific of tales can sometimes be overlooked. I pray that doesn't happen to Maybe This Summer. Life is about the challenges we face and the people we become because of them. Ms. Snow seems to get that. It shines through with Owen's insecurities and Paige's closed off heart. Maybe This Summer makes it easy to root for the underdog. Paige and Owen prove outer beauty doesn't make a shining star. True beauty comes from within.

BEAUTIFUL TEMPEST (MALORY - ANDERSEN) BY JOHANNA LINDSEY

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 11, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey now reveals the tempestuous story of Jacqueline Malory whose furious desire for revenge leads to a confrontation with the handsome pirate who abducted her—and sparks a much steamier kind of desire.

For the first time, James Malory and his Anderson in-laws agree on something: It’s payback time for the culprit who kidnapped James and Georgina’s beloved daughter Jack from her American debutante party and whisked her away to the Caribbean, no matter that she escaped unscathed. James figured out who masterminded the dastardly plot and is leading a fleet of ships to the West Indies to deliver some Malory-style retribution.

More interested in revenge than in finding a husband during her first London Season, Jack is furious that her father left her behind. Then an intriguing stranger leads her and her older brother Jeremy to her mysterious abductor. But instead of capturing him, the Malory siblings wind up as his “ guests” on a ship sailing away from England. As Jack re-engages in a battle of wills with her all too attentive captor, she realizes he is no ordinary pirate, perhaps no pirate at all, but a nobleman determined to settle a score that dates back to the days when her father was known as Captain Hawk—and what endangers her most is the increasingly passionate attraction they feel for each other.

REVIEW:  BEAUTIFUL TEMPEST (MALORY - ANDERSEN) BY JOHANNA LINDSEY

 

Beautiful TempestBeautiful Tempest by Johanna Lindsey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Malory series is how I discovered Johanna Lindsey. She was one of the first authors I read where the women were as essential to the action as their male counterparts. At the time, there were not many historical romances with heroines who would risk walking into danger and rescuing themselves. Ms. Lindsey broke ground in that aspect. To this day there are less damsels in distress and more fearless lionesses. Beautiful Tempest keeps that legacy going with a suspenseful, adventurous tale of danger, family and romance. It felt like catching up with friends. Now a little bit older and a whole lot wiser, I'm as in love with those rowdy Malorys and feuding Andersons as the day I met them.

Mackenzie Walker is attempting to enjoy the last of her siblings’ weddings when her long-lost first love, Alexander “Zan” Elliott, crashes the reception.

Zan Elliott has business at Blue Arrow Lake and then he’ll go right back to his wandering-the-world life as a documentary filmmaker. But seeing the Walkers again, seeing Mac again, brings back the best of childhood memories. There are lessons he learned then too, however. Love means loss and starting things up once more with Mac might ultimately hurt them both. Yet battling his feelings is getting more difficult by the day…

Winter is anything but cold in the snowy mountains surrounding beautiful Blue Arrow Lake as a reunion between two former lovers sparks a brand new fire.

When you find yourself crying and don't remember feeling the teardrops fall, is the moment that a reader realizes something special just happened. That's what One Love proves to be. Something special. Ms. Ridgway delivers two deeply moving romances in a pocket-sized work of art.

In an act of desperation, Zan left it all behind to see the world, only to realize he already had it, right on that mountaintop. Now he's back to claim what's his, if the secrets he exposes doesn't wreck his chances. Zan and Walker, along with Ash and Tilda show that despite the odds, TRUE LOVE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR.

THE MISADVENTURES OF LADY OPHELIA (THE UNDAUNTED DEBUTANTES) BY CHRISTINA MCKNIGHT

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 11, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Quiet, reserved, Lady Ophelia Fletcher always has her nose stuck in a book; hence why she didn’t witness the death of her friend the fateful night of her passing. Now, she writes the Mayfair Confidential column to expose unsavory men as a way of making amends for not backing her other friend’s claims of murder. When a handsome stranger arrives to meet with her father, Ophelia is helpless to keep from investigating the dashing lord.

Colin Parnell, Lord Hawke, has a promise to uphold: find the book that proves his grandpapa worked as a spy for King George II and did not die as a no-good smuggler off the coast of Kent. Shrouded in mystery and scandal, the Parnell family has been at war with one another for decades, and Colin is determined to put a stop to it all by discovering proof of the family’s honorable past. Unfortunately, the book he seeks is in the hands of a fiery-haired beauty, and he’ll need to enlist Ophelia’s help to uncover the truth.

Ophelia is more than happy to use her skills to help Lord Hawke. But will their search for answers lead to misadventure, or will they get something greater than they bargained for: the truth and each other?

REVIEW:  THE MISADVENTURES OF LADY OPHELIA (THE UNDAUNTED DEBUTANTES) BY CHRISTINA MCKNIGHT

 

The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia (The Undaunted Debutantes, #3)The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia by Christina McKnight

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Christina McKnight has immense talent. The shining beacon of that gift is her ability to create great characters. Characters that stand out above and beyond the words on the page. Heroes and heroines that come alive with their personalities as they lead stories of courage and heart. The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia fits that mold. Ophelia has the distinction of being slightly bookish in personality but never lacking in heart. The death of a friend changed her life. Guilt drove her, but love saved her. That one event set her on a course that lead her to her soulmate and brought her out of her reserved shell and into the risky venture of life. The danger is not only in the mystery that pulls her deeper into the dark, but in the uncertainty that comes with listening to her heart. These Undaunted Debutantes are loyal, fierce and intoxicating. With the series as a whole Ms. McKnight not only conjured up a dynamic and captivating trio, she also spotlighted how beautiful it is to be unique.

Meet the Bad Boys... Four fiercely loyal, sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.

"​With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner​

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely​

Everything's naughtier after dark...


As the founder of a multimillion-dollar international security business, Carson Bad exposes secrets for a living. He knows better than to forge relationships built on them. But for years he did just that with his best friend, and secret lover, Tawny Bishop. She brought a sense of calm and understanding to his life—in and out of the bedroom. Until one fateful night when a knock at the door changed everything. 

Tawny is no longer a naive college student. She’s a sought-after perfumer living in Paris. She has plenty of resources at her fingertips, and lots of lonely nights to think about the only man she’s ever loved—the one she ran away from all those years ago. She needs to move forward with her life, but how can she when Carson still owns her heart? 

Maybe showing up in the middle of the night unannounced isn’t the best route to unraveling the past and figuring out her future, but Tawny has played it safe for ten long years, and it's only made her long for the man she never should have walked away from. Now she's back in Carson’s life, and he’s determined not to make the same mistake twice. If only he knew what that mistake was…

REVIEW:  BAD BOYS AFTER DARK: CARSON BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

Bad Boys After Dark: Carson (Bad Boys After Dark, #3; Billionaires After Dark #7; Love in Bloom #49)Bad Boys After Dark: Carson by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Like the most potent of perfumes or the most decadent of desserts, I'm hooked. There's something about a bad boy and Carson wears that surname like a badge of honor or a weapon of choice. His electric eyes and his dark rebel persona draw women in like a moth to a flame. The beauty of Carson is that Ms. Foster dreamed up a puzzle in need of solving. The seducer becomes the prey. Mr. Bad is about to face his toughest challenge yet. And her name is Tawny Bishop. They have a past that started with friendship and ended in seduction. Now the student has become the teacher and the lesson plans have changed. The conundrum of Carson is that he exudes complicated but he's really a simple boy at heart. Carson and Tawny blend sensitive and sensual into a brew that flows smoother than the softest silk.

SECRETS OF THE TULIP SISTERS BY SUSAN MALLERY

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 11, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A wonderful story full of romance, forgiveness and the unavoidable ties that bind, SECRETS OF THE TULIP SISTERS is Susan Mallery at her very best.

Kelly Murphy's life as a tulip farmer is pretty routine—up at dawn, off to work, lather, rinse, repeat. But everything changes one sun-washed summer with two dramatic homecomings: Griffith Burnett—Tulpen Crossing's prodigal son, who's set his sights on Kelly—and Olivia, her beautiful, wayward and, as far as Kelly is concerned, unwelcome sister. Tempted by Griffith, annoyed by Olivia, Kelly is overwhelmed by the secrets that were so easy to keep when she was alone.

But Olivia's return isn't as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future, and ever since her dad sent her away from the bad boy she loved, she has felt cut off from her past. She's determined to reclaim her man and her place in the family…whether her sister likes it or not. For ten years, she and Kelly have been strangers. Olivia will get by without her approval now.

While Kelly and Olivia butt heads, their secrets tumble out in a big hot mess, revealing some truths that will change everything they thought they knew. Can they forgive each other—and themselves—and redefine what it means to be sisters?

Told with Mallery's trademark heart and humor, the Tulip Sisters are in for the most colorful summer of their lives…

Susan Mallery is one of a handful of authors that can get a reader to laugh while wiping away heartfelt tears. Secrets of the Tulip Sisters is about what it means to be a family.

Release Date:  July 11, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Meet the Shakespeare family: four sisters, four stories . . . four ways to find true love

 

Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. Six years after the play she wrote bombed at the box office, she's unable to hold down a job, keep an apartment, and worst of all her family have no idea how far she's fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her the use of his friend's Italian villa for the summer, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That's before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.

 

When Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton sees his name splashed across a gossip rag, all he wants to do is hide. That's how he finds himself traveling to Italy, deciding to spend the summer in his family's empty villa on Lake Como. Except when he arrives it isn't as empty as he'd hoped.

 

Over the course of the hot Italian summer, Cesca and Sam have to come to terms with their pasts. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly grows into an intense attraction - and then a scorching fling. But they can't hide from reality forever . . . as their different worlds collide, Sam and Cesca face a choice: is this just a summer romance, or could their love weather even the coldest winds?

 

A brand new series from the bestselling author of Fix You and the Love in London series.

REVIEW:  SUMMER'S LEASE BY CARRIE ELKS

 

 

 Summer's LeaseSummer's Lease by Carrie Elks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Falling in love means never having to say sorry. How great that would be if true. Carrie Elks does something we all wish we could, but are afraid to try. Have characters admit they were wrong. Cesca and Sam have a history that may have seemed promising but ended in rivalry. When scandal and disappointment lead them to the same place, can these feuding enemies began to give peace a chance? Summer's Lease is my first Carrie Elks novel. Whether confronted with frenemies or seduced by lovers, this author can make an impression that was joyful to discover.

Chasing Vivi

 

 

 

CHASING VIVI BY A.M. HARGROVE

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 11, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

 

Vivi Renard—a blast from the past—wasn’t supposed to affect me like this.

 

When I knew her ten years ago she was nothing more to me than a highly functioning brain.

Hell, I paid her to do my homework.

 

Only now … she’s drop dead gorgeous but had the nerve to turn me down for a date … several times.

No one turns me—Prescott Beckham—down for anything.

I’m on a mission and won’t stop until I’m firmly planted between her thighs, hearing her moan my name.

 

Her plump red lips have me dreaming filthy things and acting like a kid with his first crush.

If I can’t have her, I don’t want anyone else to either.

What’s worse is I want to own every single bit of her.

 

Except there’s a slight problem.

Vivi can’t stand me.

Even the old let’s be friends again thing failed.

She tossed it back saying we were never friends to begin with.

 

But I’m the king at playing ruthless games.

So she’d better be ready to drop her thong, because Vivi is going to end up in my bed sooner … or later.

And I’m pretty damn sure it’s going to be sooner.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Characters like Vivi Renard are favorites of mine. There's nothing more satisfying than watching a player get beat at his own game. Ms. Hargrove used human nature to create a sassy heroine with the smarts to do battle with an arrogant, egotistical and utterly irresistible ladies' man. The chase is on. Prepare to be tempted.

CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU (SUMMER LAKE) BY BELLA ANDRE

 

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 12, 2017

 

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Sullivan fans met Christie Hayden at Summer Lake in "Now That I've Found You", “Since I Fell For You” and “The Best Is Yet To Come”. Now get ready for Christie’s beautiful love story in CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU.  
  

Christie Hayden escaped to Summer Lake to heal from heartbreak, but found so much more than that: a job she loves as an innkeeper, a close-knit community of friends, and a chance at the perfect romantic future she’s always longed for. But nothing is as it seems, especially when it comes to Liam Kane, the gorgeous millionaire who sweeps into her life from out of the blue…and instantly turns it—and her heart—upside down. 

The first time Liam Kane lays eyes on Christie, he’s a total goner. He knows he should keep his distance, because he’s not capable of giving her the happily-ever-after she’s looking for. But when it comes to her smiles, her laughter, her kindness—and her sweetly sinful kisses—for the first time in his life, he can’t hang on to his self-control. Not when the love she offers him is everything he never thought he could have, but now craves with every fiber of his being. 

But Liam has been keeping a secret for twenty years, one that nearly destroyed him—one that has the potential to tear his whole family apart too. When Christie can’t stop herself from trying to help out of pure love, will Liam be able to let himself heal? Or will they both end up broken, leaving her to pick up the pieces all over again? 

NOTE FOR READERS“Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” was previously published as “With This Kiss” under a pen name. This new edition has been extensively revised and rewritten.

REVIEW:  CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU (SUMMER LAKE) BY BELLA ANDRE

 

 

 Can't Take My Eyes Off of You (Summer Lake, #2)Can't Take My Eyes Off of You by Bella Andre

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The first Sullivan stole my heart and those Maverick Billionaires staked a claim on my soul. However, I've realized neither hold a candle to the citizens of Summer Lake. The classics meet modern fairytales. Ms. Andre has a talent for blending these two styles and hitting the JACKPOT, more often the not. The central ingredient is the heart. She builds her stories about what makes us most vulnerable. Our emotions! That's why her stories are easy to relate to and hard not to fall in love with. Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You is a triple threat. The atmosphere is inviting, the characters are enticing and the tale, itself is breathtaking. We all dream of finding a love that endures. For a little girl the experience begins the minute we open our first fairytale. For men, it may take a bit longer and be hidden much deeper, but the feeling is still there. But will we take the risk? In my opinion that's what makes a Bella Andre novel so special. It appeals to the dreamer in us all.

MAD FOR THE MARQUESS (RELUCTANT HEARTS) BY JESS RUSSELL

 

 

 

Release Date:  July 14, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

James Drake, Marquess of Devlin, had everything—until he was found covered in blood, standing over a dead girl. Now locked away in a madhouse, he has one short year to recover his memories and prove his sanity, or be condemned for life. But the demons inside Devlin’s head are far easier to battle than the evil surrounding him at Ballencrieff Asylum.

Anne Winton hardly expects to find her calling—or love—while working in a lunatic asylum. But despite all warnings, the “Mad Marquess” proves dangerously fascinating to innocent Anne. She vows to save him not only from his adversaries, but from himself.

Initially, Anne is only a pawn in Devlin’s bid to gain his freedom, until he begins to see her not just as a means to an end, but as a beautifully passionate woman. He must choose: compromise the woman he loves, or languish forever in hell.

REVIEW:  MAD FOR THE MARQUESS (RELUCTANT HEARTS) BY JESS RUSSELL

 

 

 Mad for the Marquess (Reluctant Hearts Book 1)Mad for the Marquess by Jess Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


My genre of choice is romance and although I enjoy all types, my preference has always been historical. Mad for the Marquess is definitely historical. However, Ms. Russell takes a darker direction with her tale. Conspiracy, murder, danger and intrigue are always a haunting combination, but from within the depths of tragedy and despair, something beautiful grows. A love that knows no bounds and will risk everything to conquer the evil. Devlin and Anne light the spark that ignites the flame to burn through the hopelessness that is intent on keeping them apart. Their love singes through the obstacles and empowers their faith as it slowly thawed this reader's heart.
