When Sienna's boyfriend proposes—in front of her mom and sisters, for crying out loud—he takes her by surprise. She already has two broken engagements under her belt. Should she say "I do" even if she's not sure she does?

Rachel ~ The Cynic ~

Rachel thought love would last forever…right up until her divorce. As Mom's wedding day draws near and her ex begs for a second chance, she's forced to acknowledge some uncomfortable truths about why her marriage failed, and decide if she'll let pride stand in the way of her own happily ever after.

REVIEW:  DAUGHTERS OF THE BRIDE BY SUSAN MALLERY

Daughters of the BrideDaughters of the Bride by Susan Mallery

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Daughters of the Bride by Susan Mallery

Daughters of the Bride is meant to be a classic. With each novel I read I fall deeper in love with Ms. Mallery's characters and her narrative style. She not only imparts sage advice, but creates stories that are a joy to experience. Daughters of the Bride is a story told with tenderness and nostalgia about the bonds of family. Devotion and understanding are essential to the dynamic of family BUT learning how to love enough to let go is one of the most important decisions a person can make.
With the help of surrogate mother Joyce, Sienna, Courtney and Rachel through self-examination discover the strength of love, forgiveness and healing. With a little bit of romance and a great deal of heart Susan Mallery has created an emotional masterpiece.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: An Affair in Winter (Seasons) by Jess Michaels

An Affair in Winter is an epic love story. A passion shrouded in secrecy, a wedding arranged by a spiteful, scheming, power hungry man and the hidden secrets he holds within his grasp lead to explosive revelations. Ms. Michaels has crafted a love story that mixes spice with emotion. Like a jigsaw, piece by piece she reveals more about the driving force behind each character. Rosalinde was a person who wanted to be loved and not treated like a means to an end. Her entire existence was center around the charity of her grandfather and his bitterness toward Rosalinde and her sister (who was the only bright spot in a heartbreaking existence). When her sister is forced into an arranged engagement and marriage to appease a vindictive old man, Rosalinde will risk her virtue, heart and well being to make sure her sister finds the happiness she deserves. Grayson is the brother of the groom, Rosalinde, the sister of the bride. A chance meeting, a secret affair and conflicting opinions make for a tempestuous romance filled with unforgettable moments that are as bewitching as they are heartbreaking. My favorite Jess Michaels story to date.

REVIEW:  ANYTHING BUT LOVE BY ABIGAIL STROM


Anything But Love by Abigail Strom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Abigail Strom's Anything But Love may come across as a blase' read but ended up being anything but.  Ms. Strom hit all the right notes for romantics everywhere.  A second chance romance between estranged friends told with simplicity and humor that gives the heart (in my case) something to sing about.  




Surrender to You (At Your Service #2)


SURRENDER TO YOU (AT YOUR SERVICE) BY SHAWNTELLE MADISON


Release Date:  July 12, 2016


SYNOPSIS

In this seductive novel from the author of Bound to You, two career-oriented friends with benefits discover that good morning doesn’t have to mean goodbye.

Late-night booty calls are the most romantic gesture that Carlie Jason expects from business magnate Tomas Goodfellow. Ever since they were teenagers, they’ve provided each other the kind of no-strings pleasures that don’t involve regrets. Now Carlie finds it easier to kiss and run rather than face the fact that she wants so much more. But when she takes a job as a concierge at one of Tomas’s properties, a hotel where the rich and famous get their kink on, Carlie’s tempted to reconsider the rules of surrender.

As the head of an international empire, Tomas knows how to bring out the best in his employees. Putting Carlie in charge of managing the desires of his wealthiest clients was a stroke of genius—only now that she’s close enough to touch, he finds he doesn’t want to let her go. Their long, dark history has built up intimacy in ways he’s only just beginning to understand, but Tomas isn’t ready to trust her just yet. He knows his feelings are more than skin-deep. But first he needs to convince Carlie of one thing: the ties that bind go straight to the heart.
