Release Date:  December 12, 2016





The last thing Brett Ross wants is to be back in the same old damn small town he grew up in, but his best friend is getting married, so there’s no way he’s skipping yet another visit back home. He knows what he’s getting into, coming back here, but the one thing he didn’t count on was the way Anna Hamilton made him feel the first time he sets eyes on her…and she’s all grown up. 


Anna’s always been in love with Brett, even if she’s always been his best friend’s annoying little sister to him. But when he looks at her, she doesn’t see annoyance in his eyes anymore. If anything, she sees a silent calling for her to save him from himself…and she’s just the girl to do it. All she needs is to find a way to escape her pesky, protective older brothers…  


And then the game is on.

The CEO's Seduction (Hamilton Family, #1)The CEO's Seduction by Diane Alberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC Review: The CEO'S Seduction (Hamilton Family) by Diane Alberts

Eric, Wyatt, Cole and Chris were idiots. Their protectiveness of Anna started off adorable but quickly morphed into obsessive. Many times I wanted to yell "Get a life of your own." The CEO'S Seduction is part bro - romance, part romance and severely emotional. Anna was a strong woman who followed her heart despite the obstacles. Brett proved a frustrating conundrum. He drove me bonkers with the back and forth, yet he captured my heart with all the drama he'd endured. I literally ached for the lonely boy with the broken spirit and the man with the closed off heart. Diane Alberts turned emotional into excellent. Am looking forward to more from the crazy Hamilton brood.

The Millionaire's RevengeThe Millionaire's Revenge by Wendy Byrne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First impressions are everything and with Luke and Grace, Ms. Byrne left a lasting one. With equal parts frustration and sensation, this couple made hot and cold work. What I liked most about The Millionaire's Revenge is that the characters kept me on my toes and as a reader that is a great compliment because bored would have been a draw back. The fact that the author allowed me as a reader to come to my own conclusion in this chess game of love proved a plus as well. This is my second read by Wendy Byrne and I am liking what I've seen so far.

To save her, he must ruin her.

Lord Sebastian St. John, dedicated bachelor and a co-owner of Fallen, the most scandalous pleasure club in London, is known as Sin for good reason. Orphaned by a shocking accident, Sin long ago vowed a life of solitude and

Obedient daughter, wife, and young widow, Grace has had enough of being controlled. After her father arranges a second loveless marriage to an eminently respectable ancient, Grace plans a fortnight of defiance and self-ruination to stop the wedding. But as Grace enters the heady, risky world of an affair with Sin, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him— and she soon realizes two weeks won't be nearly enough.

Surrender to Sin (Fallen, #1)Surrender to Sin by Nicola Davidson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ms. Davidson has intrigued me with this sensuous journey into decadent defiance. Surrender to Sin is the story of broken people who find salvation in a torrid affair. A short trek to a steaming pot of gold. My one complaint was that it ended all too soon.

ARC Review: Lucky 7 Hot Heroes Anthology

Lucky 7: Hot Heroes is a great blend of spice, action, laughter and tears that entertains and provides a bit of hidden wisdom on the side. A little wicked behavior, leads to a whole lot of fun in Susan Hatler's Truth or Date. Tawny Weber lends an edgier voice to second chances and broken vows.

Authors, romance and Danger are irresistible mix. With this anthology I scored a major hit.

MAD FOR LOVE by Elizabeth Essex

Mignon du Blois needs an accomplished thief to steal back her father's statue so he won't be arrested for forgery--too bad the man willing to help her is actually Rory Cathcart, noted art expert.



After living separate lives since their rushed wedding, an earl and countess stumble upon each other and begin to see the other in a whole new light.



An independent bluestocking sneaks into a library to read rare Greek texts and ends up with a husband instead.



The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, he has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife.


THE ROBBER BRIDE by Jerrica Knight-Catania

Victoria Barclay is determined to make a difference in the world, so she finds a way to rob the rich and donate to the poor. But the Earl of Leyburn, her lifelong friend and neighbor, threatens to expose her in his constant pursuit of the truth. 


SHUNNED NO MORE by Christina McKnight

Lady Viola Oberbrook longed for a quiet life in the country, far from London and the society who'd shunned her during her first season. She never expected to come face-to-face with Lord Haversham, the only man who had every right to despise her. 



Struggling to survive in London's dangerous rookeries, Kate Morgan is determined not to give into the temptation of past love Daniel O'Reilly when he returns to win back her heart and prove he's innocent of murder.



Courtesan Celeste Gray wanted a new life free of the infamy of her notorious past--the last thing she planned on was falling for the stuffy viscount next door, Ashlin Lancester.



Stephen Lumley returns from battle wounded and jaded, only to find his home life had been changed forever. After proposing while drowning his sorrows in liquor, he now has only four months to convince himself and Jane Marwick he is worthy of her, before she's off to London to find a man who is.



Lady Amelia's willing to create a scandal to stay in her beloved England. A Scottish duke ignites her passion, but will she abandon her endeavor for love?


THE LOVE LIST by Deb Marlowe

Miss Brynne Wilmott will do anything to get her name off of the Love List—that wickedly witty register of London’s light skirts.  The Duke of Aldmere will do anything to be left alone.  But his brother is mixed up in the business, so he’ll work with the lady to unravel the mess…until they find that the plot is more twisted and treasonous than anyone suspects…and that the danger and intrigue pale next to the effect they have on each other.


TO WALK IN THE SUN by Jane Charles

Hiding from a dangerous man, Tess Crawford thought The Wiggons’ School for Elegant Young Ladies would be the perfect place to disappear…except she didn’t anticipate being drawn to the reclusive Viscount Atwood, who has many secrets of his own.

Ms. McKnight tackles the benefits of having an open heart and a compassionate spirit while rebuilding trust and finding hope.

The Trouble with Being Wicked by Emma Locke - Celeste and Ash are trying to escape the shadows of the past. Ash came across as a jerk more than a gentleman quite often in this story. The main reason, he felt there was something flawed inside of his makeup that he needed to purge. Celeste wants more than the notoriety of her former profession. She wants to live and exist in a place where she can be known as her true self not just a name. She decides to make a fresh start hoping to find all she seeks and succeeds until her past comes back to haunt her. The Trouble with Being Wicked is a triumphant story about overcoming circumstance and prejudice to successfully face any roadblock. Celeste is a great character because she owned her past and made a choice to claim her future regardless of others. Her strength was an inspiration.

After twenty-five years on the job, Lieutenant Grant Boone finds himself at loose ends now that he’s retired.

The only thing Boone knows is that his future plans don’t include Liza Carmichael. She’s bossy, temperamental, and the confections she bakes are sweet enough to tempt a saint.

Sweet Surrender: A MacKenzie Family Novella (The MacKenzie Family)Sweet Surrender: A MacKenzie Family Novella by Liliana Hart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Liliana Hart knows how to deliver spicy with a side of sweetness. Sweet Surrender lured me in with sugary goodness but got me hooked on the thrill of the chase. Although Grant and Liza's story is more of a whodunit than a let's do it type of read, action was the name of the game and boy did these characters live up to the call. Every gambit of emotion was on display from fear to sizzling temptation. The suspense was an added adrenaline rush but the ultimate payoff was chemisery that set the pages on fire. Sweet Surrender packs a powerful punch for such a short read.
