  • The Contract on March 27, 2012

    Does Sondra know what she is getting into with Nick, her boss? Not really but she is up to the challenge. Some parts of the story were hot but I was left wanting more, more details of the props and techniques used. I am hoping that the next book, has more of everything in it and then some.
  • To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield - Regency Romance, Wicked Wagers Trilogy Book 1 on March 27, 2012

    OMG! I laughed, cried and squealed with delight. I love a strong woman who does not sacrifice her strength to please a man, Caitlin was that woman. Poor Harlow did not have a chance after the cake challenge, he fell hard, really hard. I loved how Caitlin got her wishes at the end- all of them ;-)
  • Hot Number on June 03, 2012

    I enjoyed Sadie and her strength and weaknesses. Nick was hot and thoughtful, caring and hot. This story makes me want to go to Las Vegas with a girlfriend :-)
  • Brie's First Day of Submissive Training (Brie, #1) on June 03, 2012

    Wow what an intense short story, actually it was too short. I could not believe the first day was over. I need to read more and I am left wanting to check if there is a school in the area!
  • Recess on June 18, 2012

    Too short but has a promise to grow into something really hot.
  • Accidental Affair on April 16, 2013

    I really liked this book and stayed up late to finish it in one sitting. The characters Laine, Jack and Bear were so vivid, I felt like I knew them personally. The storyline was strong throughout with no lulls. The kissing and sex were sensual and felt natural, not forced. A great story that will capture your attention and hold onto it well after the story is over.
  • The Valentine Grinch on April 16, 2013

    What a great quick read! Grandma and her urn. Amanda talking to her Grandpa. Her parents acting like a bunch of teenagers and don't forget sexy Dane. Fun!
  • Sinful (Hot Regency Romance Novella) on May 29, 2013

    Estelle and Trevelyan meet again after 10 years. Will Lyan be able to forgive and forget or is he back for revenge? I enjoyed this short story and the characters. Would enjoy reading more about their lives together now and how they got some of those ten years back....
  • Miracle Pie on May 29, 2013

    What a fulfilling book. My heart feels like it is ready to explode. Yet on the other hand, I am craving pie. Katie, Gabe, Rosa, Sam- each character had such a strong, friendly, big personality that made them seem so real. The story of the town Miracle and the magic that resides inside each and everyone that lives or visits is beautiful. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
  • Right Place, Right Time on March 28, 2015

    I loved the first book in the series (Accidental Affair). I had hoped that another book would be written because Bear really deserved to have his story told. Imagine my surprise to see that one was written and that it was another success. Beth is a photographer who is out taking pictures when she takes some that she should not have. Running for her life she meets Bear. Bear had just wanted to get away and relax after the past year from hell. When he gets involved with Beth he realizes he will not be relaxing anytime soon. It is great to see Jack and Laine from the first book and have them add more to this already great story. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Montana Secrets on Feb. 14, 2016

    It took me a bit to get into this story. A lot of names and connections that I had to put in order before the story got good for me. Pansy and Nate have fallen in love and want to be together however, a different path is meant for them both. After many years apart they reunite. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
  • The CEO on Feb. 14, 2016

    I really enjoyed this story. Ava has been in love secretly with Callum for over 5 years, when he was with her sister. She has tried to move on but the Malone men are hard to forget. Callum doesn't know why Ava "the Terrible" has disliked him all these years but he plans to find out. A great second story in the series. I can't wait to read more about the Malones. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Driftwood Cowboy on Feb. 14, 2016

    The story is a light and quick read. The book could have been much deeper but that direction was not taken. Michelle looses her family and escapes to Driftwood, FL to get away. She meets Brodie who she didn't want to meet and spends time with him, though she didn't really want to. Brodie wants to get to know Michelle but is torn because of his past. Can they work together to get through their pasts? I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • The Falconer's Daughter: Book I on Feb. 14, 2016

    I liked this story however, it took me a long time to get into it. There was too many names/families that made it hard to keep up with. I found the first half of the story more interesting with Cordaella and her father than the second half with her newly acquired "family". I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Where There's a Will on Feb. 14, 2016

    A very short, light quick read. Addison is almost a lawyer and planning her future for the next ten years. When a storm forces her and her boss Ryder together to wait it out, their brief past comes to light. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • The Sweetest Thing on Feb. 14, 2016

    What a bombshell is dropped onto Tully's big night- Prom. Her poor date Ren had no word from her about what happened and why she did not go. 18 years later Tully goes back home to help her Mom out with her sister. It seems that Ren is still living there and working as an attorney. He is drawn into her family secrets and they are forced to deal with that night so many years ago. I laughed and cried a lot with this book. They say that timing is everything but that is not always the case. Some things are much stronger, like love.
  • The Substitute Bride on Feb. 20, 2016

    Marly leaves her hometown for bigger and better things. When her plans don't work out the way that she wants them to, she returns home. She runs into Drake, who she knew before she left. She is working at her Mom's newspaper and living with her until she can figure out where to go next. I enjoyed this book but I did not like the 360 that Marly did with Drake. It didn't seem real or genuine at all. The talks with her Mom were more realistic and honest. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Wrecked on April 16, 2016

    Hollis runs home to her Grandmother's house to lick her wounds and figure out what to do next in her life. However, Kadan, her ex is there and doesn't seem to be leaving anytime soon. In a weird way, they work out some of their issues and start to heal from past mistakes in life and with each other. I did not find this second book in the series as good as the first, it was missing excitement and connection to previous characters. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Cherish Me, Cowboy on April 16, 2016

    I enjoyed this short, sweet story that takes me back to one of my favorite places, Marietta. The town is familiar and oozes country charm. Payton is busy running her farm when Cordell happens upon her one day. Payton is strong willed, determined and a sassy cowgirl who doesn't take well to people offering to help out. Cordell is not looking for anything permanent and wants to stick to his 5 year plan. Good thing plans are made to be broken and rewritten. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Bound to the Bachelor on April 16, 2016

    A great start to a new series! I really enjoyed the friction between Lily and Beau and their playfulness. Lily and Beau have fought a mutual attraction for over 5 years.

  • Good Together on April 16, 2016

    A great story with a perfect ending. Mattie and Wes have been married for 19 years and have twin daughters. She notices that they have been drifting apart and wants to fix it, like they have done in the past. Things don't go quite as expected and Mattie is left fending for her self. Which wouldn't be so bad if the holidays were not right around the corner. Thankfully she has Jake to help her with the farm and neighbor Nat, close by next door. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Again, Alabama on May 10, 2016

    I really enjoyed this emotional story. It felt like an honest telling about a family, their secrets, loves and losts. Sure, what Grey did was wrong however, if Cammie was able to forgive and more on- so should everyone else. Loved that she was a chef and I got pulled back into the love that cooking brings me. A well written book, that told a beautiful story. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    What an emotional story. Kaitlin is barely holding on, her whole life that she has planned out is crumbling around her. When Beckett, the devil himself walks in she calls to him, which sets a ball in motion. I was hoping for more from the ending, I felt that it wasn't finished. I was also missing the Marietta town charm that has been present in previous books. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Weekend with the Tycoon on July 04, 2016

    No, no, no- this book can not be over already! I swear I just sat down and started reading the first page, now I am at the end of the story. Samantha is a jewel that sparkles in every kind of light. Blake is a sexy, very tempting boss, whether he is trying to be controlling or not. Sparks and electricity flow between Sam and Blake and you can't help but fall in love with them. I can't wait to read more about these two and the rest of the Putnam family.

    This book starts out hot, goes luke warm, with the ending finally heating back up. Lacey meets Cooper at a bar and picks him up for one heck of a night! Coop is in a lust induced coma until reality bites him in the arse. There are some funny parts in this story, though I wanted more of them.

    A trip back to the Bar V5 ranch was just what I needed, especially for Christmastime to see what the gang has been up to.

  • Come Home for Christmas, Cowboy on Sep. 11, 2016

    This was an emotional story that left me sad for most of the whole book, until the very end. Christina and her husband Dare are not happy and haven't been for years. When she finally leaves, things start to change. I wish that Dare would have been more honest and shared growing up with Christina so that she could have been there for him. Communication is very important in marriage and any relationship takes work and commitment in order to succeed. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Beauty and the Cowboy on Sep. 11, 2016

    I enjoyed this sweet, light story between Charlotte and Jesse. I like small towns and the characters that live and spread information, quickly. They make secrets much more fun to hear about. The ferris wheel scene was priceless. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • The Honeymoon Trap on Sep. 11, 2016

    I loved this story, Zoey and Eli, the gaming aspect, the Jackson brothers, the boats and the suite! The story was short, sweet, made me laugh and cry numerous times. Great ending that paired so well with the rest of the story. Makes you want to be trapped into a honeymoon, if it turns out like this. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
