Season of Mercy (Sled Dog #4) by Melissa Storm

Review:

Season of Mercy - Melissa Storm

 

There is no black and write when it comes to life and love. Only a mass of contradictions. There is no greater evidence of that then the plight of Hunter and Sofia in Season of Mercy. Sofia is all heart. She aims to do the right thing, yet she goes about doing so in the wrong way. Hunter always follows the rules. What happens when he loses his heart along the way? The purpose of a good story is not just to entertain, but to exercise the mind as well as the heart. With Season of Mercy, Storm succeeds in doing both. A heartache that thrives on hope and inspires faith.

COUNTERFEIT BOYFRIEND BY CINDI MADSEN

 

 

Release DateJune 25, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

My twin brother’s talked me into a lot of crazy things, but taking his place on a road trip with his girlfriend so he can party with his friends is a whole new level of insanity. What’s even more insane is I somehow find myself agreeing to it—thanks, alcohol, guilt, and bribery. I’m determined to undo the arrangement, but then I meet Gwen, this sexy redheaded hurricane of energy and brains.

 

And then she kisses me. Just like that, I’m driving her up the coast, on our way to a wedding with a mess of complications. With each hour and each stop, I’m falling harder and harder for a woman who doesn’t know my actual name.

 

I’m trying to do the right thing. Or the lesser of the wrong things. All my life I’ve had to clean up my brother’s messes, but for the first time ever, I’ve landed the upper hand in one of our switcheroo schemes. Now I’ve just got to come clean and convince Gwen that I’m the brother she should be with.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Ethan must have been out of his mind when he agreed to help his twin. Now he's in over his head and if he's not careful, his heart could be the ultimate casualty. CounterFeit Boyfriend is all a romantic comedy should be. Cheesy, over the top and fun.

Release DateJune 25, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

If Mary Babington-Smith knows nothing else, it's that Lord Edwin Sutton kissed her. Regardless of who-kissed-whom, with the deed witnessed, they have no choice but to carry on with a temporary, fake, engagement. When Edwin sweetens the deal, offering Mary the money she needs to pursue her independence if she can play the lovesick fiancée for two weeks, Mary rises to the challenge. In two weeks, she'll have everything she wants, and this time she'll be the one to walk out of his life.

Despite Sutton's argumentative, self-assured nature, when Mary glimpses a sliver of the boy he used to be, she vows to peel away every layer of armor he uses to shield his emotions. Somewhere underneath that worldly exterior is the kind-hearted man she once loved, but in order to find him, she'll have to give him the power to hurt her...and he's already broken her trust once...

How to Fall for the Wrong Man (Ladies of Passion, #3)How to Fall for the Wrong Man by Harmony Williams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Harmony Williams pulled me into the masquerade. How to Fall for the Wrong Man should be called Mistakes Made when you Land The Right One. Edwin and Mary have gotten so used to playing their parts, their heart's have gotten lost in the shuffle. In her quest for independence, Mary ignores her feelings. Edwin wears his on his sleeve, yet doesn't fully understand them. Williams makes historical a modern treat with her lovable, clueless characters and her stories of enchanting love.

Andrew may have survived a shipwreck to find fame and fortune at sea, but he never fully healed after Lavinia’s abandonment. Instead, he dedicated himself to the navy—and secret missions for the foreign office. Nearing retirement and back on British soil, he’s given a new assignment—infiltrate the home of a wealthy banker who’s suspected of being behind a plan to assassinate the Prince of Wales. But to do that, Andrew must recruit and turn the woman the banker once wooed: Lavinia Parkem.

Unable to shirk his duties, Andrew begrudgingly uses the influence of successful matchmaker of Edinburgh to convince the now-widowed Lavinia to help him take down his mark. She relents, telling herself that Andrew’s no longer the warm, loving young man she once knew. But the more time she spends with him, the harder it is to pretend there’s no longer any attraction there. And it’s tormenting Andrew that he must ask her to put herself in more and more danger and now, he must decide whether his duty to queen and country is worth risking the life of the woman he never stopped loving.

SYNOPSIS

 

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.

 

No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide. He’s developing another passion, too, for Keera Thompson, the new principal. She’s beautiful, enigmatic, guarded, and—after a series of violent school break-ins—in need of protection. And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.

 

After a troubling past, Keera thought she’d be safe in this sleepy town and that she’d never be shaken again.

But despite their explosive chemistry, when it comes to letting Arden in, Keera has her limits…and her secrets.

 

As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away…or will it bring the two closer than ever before?

As he spends more time around Payton, his heart begins to defrost, and he can’t stop thinking about the captivating governess.

 

But every seasoned gambler knows that eventually, luck runs out. Can two souls so burned by past loves forge a new future together?

DRIFTWOOD CREEK (SUNSET BAY) BY ROXANNE SNOPEK

 

 

 

Release DateJune 26, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Nestled among the forests and coves that dot the Oregon coast, Sanctuary Ranch is a home for strays--both human and animal--and the starting off point for second chances . . .
 
After aging out of the California foster care system, Jamie Vaughn found her place in the world at Sanctuary Ranch in Sunset Bay. But other lost souls are not so lucky, so she's made it her mission to rescue those that cross her path--like the injured pup she just found. The man he belongs to is obviously an unfit owner, so she's just going to ignore the address on the dog's tag. She has more important things on her mind, like roping her handsome coworker, Gideon, out of the friend zone and into helping her . . .
 
Head wrangler Gideon Low knows that Jamie's bark is worse than her bite, despite her rough exterior. In fact, he's determined to protect her from her too-tender heart, even if it means returning the not-so-homeless puppy--and putting some distance between them. But sooner or later, Gideon's best intentions will turn on him. And he'll learn that he's not the only one with secrets--and that the love of your life can be right under your nose . . .

REVIEWDRIFTWOOD CREEK (SUNSET BAY) BY ROXANNE SNOPEK

 

Driftwood Creek (Sunset Bay #2)Driftwood Creek by Roxanne Snopek

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Driftwood Creek can be described in many ways. I choose to look at it as a tale of inspiration trapped in a world that is not always kind. Jamie and Gideon are dreamers learning how to dream. Their pain runs deep inside of battered and bruised souls. Despite the heartache, each needs someone to help heal all their broken parts. The tragedy will be, if they never try. Snopek taps into the still waters of a heart and bleeds them dry, before replenishing the human spirit with her emotional reads.

ANYTHING FOR LOVE (THE BRADENS & THE MONTGOMERYS; PLEASANT HILL - OAK FALLS) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

 

Release DateJune 27, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

Fall in love with Beau Braden and Charlotte Sterling in ANYTHING FOR LOVE. 

After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue—even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates—until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

REVIEWANYTHING FOR LOVE (THE BRADENS & THE MONTGOMERYS; PLEASANT HILL - OAK FALLS) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

Anything for Love (The Bradens & Montgomerys [Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls], #2)Anything for Love by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love is an art. It begins with a blank canvas and emotions are the colors that create the pictures. Anything But Love is like a photo album. Memories are abundant, but at times become askew. What the mind leads us to believe is not always rooted in truth, but built up by pain. Sometimes it takes a pair of fresh eyes to point us in the right direction. Charlotte and Beau are that new beginning. That fresh perspective. He's a fixer upper, waiting to be restored. She's that lonely heart, waiting to be healed. The heartache is just a stepping stone to point them in the right direction. The depth of a Melissa Foster story never ceases to amaze me. There's always a lesson waiting to be discovered.

MISTER TONIGHT BY KENDALL RYAN

 

 

Release Date: June 18, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

 

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

 

I was THAT girl.

 

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

 

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I'd had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I'm not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there's that.

 

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

 

There's nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

"What are you doing to my daddy?"

Just kill me now…... or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Great characters, wonderful writing and stellar series. I have yet to read them all still have Wild about Weston and Kiss me Kate left to read. This series is just the tip of the iceberg. Katy Regnery cannot miss with her stories.

Bidding on Brooks (The Winslow Brothers, #1): I loved the character of Clay, he was just over the top enough to make him believable. Katy Regnery captured my heart with Brooks and Skye’s journey to love. (5 star)

Jonquils for Jax (Blueberry Lane: The Rousseaus) - What a first impression. Jonquils for Jax is just another reason why Ms. Regnery is a favorite author of mine. She uses a pen like an artist uses a brush. Her stories are born from her love of beauty and becomes more obvious every stroke. (5 star) 

The Bohemain and The Businessman (Blueberry Lane: The Story Sisters) takes readers on a magical carpet ride of inner truth, maturity and the courage to risk it all in the name of love. I get a rush whenever I sit down to read a Katy Regnery novel. Ms. Regnery not only steals the spirit, but captivates the heart while seducing the soul. A pleasurably, seductive escape. (5 star)

Release Date: June 19, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes Book Three of the OHellNO Series, DIGGING A HOLE. (Standalone.)

HE'S THE MEANEST BOSS EVER.


SHE'S THE SWEET SHY INTERN.


THEY'RE ABOUT TO WRECK EACH OTHER CRAZY.


My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one-hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can't be "the devil incarnate," right? Wrong.

Oh...that man. That freakin' man has got to go! I've been on the job one week, and he's insulted my mother, wardrobe shamed me, and managed to make me cry. Twice. Underneath that stone-cold, beautiful face is the evilest human being ever.

But I'm not going to quit. Oh no. For once in my life, I've got to make a stand. Only every time I open my mouth, I can't quite seem to muster the courage. Perhaps my revenge needs to come in another form: destroying him quietly.

Because I've got a secret. I'm not really just an intern, and Sydney Lucas isn't my real name.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


He's the hero that you love to hate. She's the heroine you want to root for. Digging A Hole is hard to figure out, but an irresistible experience. Pamfiloff pulled a fast one. Nothing is as it seems. There's a little bit of everything in this story. The twists are rapid and never-ending. Giving away one would be like ruining them all. Don't blink. You might miss something. A MUST READ!

SYNOPSIS

 

Following the USA Today bestselling author of Lost and Found Sisters comes Jill Shalvis' moving story of heart, loss, betrayal, and friendship

Six months after Lanie Jacobs’ husband’s death, it’s hard to imagine anything could deepen her sense of pain and loss. But then Lanie discovers she isn’t the only one grieving his sudden passing. A serial adulterer, he left behind several other women who, like Lanie, each believe she was his legally wedded wife. 

Rocked by the infidelity, Lanie is left to grapple with searing questions. How could she be so wrong about a man she thought she knew better than anyone? Will she ever be able to trust another person?  Can she even trust herself?

Desperate to make a fresh start, Lanie impulsively takes a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. At first, she feels like an outsider among the boisterous Capriottis. With no real family of her own, she’s bewildered by how quickly they all take her under their wing and make her feel like she belongs. Especially Mark Capriotti, a gruffly handsome Air Force veteran turned deputy sheriff who manages to wind his way into Lanie’s cold, broken heart—along with the rest of the clan.

Everything is finally going well for her, but the arrival of River Brown changes all that. The fresh-faced twenty-one-year old seems as sweet as they come…until her dark secrets come to light—secrets that could destroy the new life Lanie’s only just begun to build.

The Sheikh's Tempting Assistant by Leslie North

 

 

 

THE SHEIKH'S TEMPTING ASSISTANT (THE SHEIKH'S MEDDLING SISTERS) BY LESLIE NORTH

 

 

Release Date: June 19, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Laura Bliss is an assistant location scout with no sense of direction—which is how she got stuck with a faulty GPS and the job of scouting sand dunes rather than the oasis her boss is currently viewing. With the sun going down and Laura seriously worrying for her life, she stumbles across a tent that looks more like a palace than a campsite.

Dehydrated and burnt, it seems like salvation—until men wearing desert garb and toting AK47’s ride out in jeeps to gather her.

 

Sheikh Raheem can barely believe his luck when an American woman is brought into his tent. He is passionate about his country’s natural splendor, but its PR is in desperate need of a makeover—perhaps as much as the dirty beauty in front of him. He makes an offer: Laura, with her eye for finding the beauty in a location, will help him craft a campaign promoting his country, and when she completes the project he’ll send her back to America with a paycheck she can live on for years. Seeing a chance for financial freedom, Laura jumps at the opportunity.

 

As Raheem shows off the magnificence of his land, Laura finds herself getting swept into a fairy tale full of palaces, five-star luxury, and the most sensuous sex she’s ever experienced. Though she values her independence, the temptation to stay—not just for Raheem, but for the beautiful country that isn’t getting the attention it deserves—holds her in place. But when the country’s natural treasures are threatened, Raheem and Laura must decide what means more to them: their love for one another or their original plans.

The Distiller's Darling (River Hill #2)

 

 

THE DISTILLER'S DARLING (RIVER HILL) BY REBECCA NORINNE AND JAMAILA BRINKLEY

 

 

 

Release Date: June 21, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn't going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.

Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.

But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

The Allure of Attraction (The Matchmaker of Edinburgh #3) by Julia Kelly

Review:

The Allure of Attraction - Julia Kelly

 

Time and circumstance tore them apart. Could a case of intrigue unite what was always meant to be? The Allure of Attraction is appealing romance hidden inside a spectacular adventure. Lavinia and Andrew are captivating pair.
