I loved the first book in this series wholeheartedly, but I ADORED every single word of Henry’s story—a story that was truly unexpected in its highs and lows, sexy yet breathtakingly compelling, and with two protagonists whose every facet leaves us breathless. Emma Chase’s wicked sense of humour shines bright in her every word, breathing life into her characters, and drawing the reader into a mouthwatering tale of royal shenanigans, reality television, and finding true love where you least expect it.

Aly Martinez excels in the Romantic Suspense genre as always, effortlessly combining nail-biting action with flawless development of her characters, and with this book, she had my undivided attention from the very first page. Hot, angsty, emotional, this is the story of two people forever tied to one another by one fated incident that changed their lives irreversibly, a tale of second chances and reclaimed destinies, of forgiveness and redemption, and of catching each other after the fall.

A charming, comforting read start to finish, underneath this book’s witty narrative and playful tone hides a tender, passionate love story between two lifelong nemeses who keep blurring that fine line between love and hate over and over again, until they can’t even remember why they hated one another in the first place. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone seeking a lighthearted, sexy romance that would leave them smiling from ear to ear.

One of the most beautiful, poignant, and breathtaking stories I have ever read, this book not only embodies the consistently high calibre of Leylah Attar’s writing, or its timeless elegance, but the transcendent quality of her prose takes the reader’s soul on a journey like no other, leaving us gasping for air in its aftermath. Set against the vibrant backdrop of the African Serengeti, this extraordinary love story is also a compelling and, at times, sobering reminder of life’s many bittersweet moments, and of how much hope can be found among the ashes of one’s heart. SIX STARS!

I’ve been a fan of Cherrie Lynn​’s writing for many years, so I always get ridiculously giddy with anticipation whenever one of her books is set to release. The perfect marriage of romance and steam, her stories crackle with sexual chemistry—her bedroom scenes featuring some of the most intense, arousing sex I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading—but it is the emotion that is ever-present in her every word that keeps me coming back for more. And this book did not disappoint. It quite literally rocked my world.

A compelling and moving tale of love between two people inexplicably tied by fate, whose journeys to one another might have been long and riddled by loss, but whose connection remains forever written in the stars—this is a book I adored, cover to cover, and I can’t sing enough praises about its every beautiful word. In my eyes, A.L. Jackson is both poet and remarkable storyteller, and after every one of her books, I soar away certain of having found a new favourite.

We’ve known of Daisy and Marcus Sloan for so long, it felt like we knew them already, but nothing could have prepared us for the heart-wrenching story Kristen Ashley was waiting to tell. Technically a novella, this book never short-changes its reader with its brevity—it sinks its hooks into our hearts very early on in the story, and amazes us page after page with its unexpected intensity, its well-rounded characters, and its unwavering focus on the growing emotional bond between them.

So happy that one of my last reads of the year ended up being a SIX-STAR read!!! I never expected to find this perfect of a story, never even hoped I would connect with it so profoundly and adore its characters so much, but this book ended up being one of the most beautiful, poignant stories I have ever read. The author writes with such emotional intelligence, with so much heart and wit, it is impossible not to fall in love with these characters to the point of willingly losing ourselves in their every interaction. The story remains emotionally driven beginning to end, with no great highs or lows, but rather a constant stream of heartening moments that warm our souls from the inside out.

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him “space”—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit… and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

This is the second book in the Royally series of interconnected standalone novels. Reading these books in order is recommended.

We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

This is the first book in a duet. The second book is expected in May 2017.

There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.

Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.

Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.

Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.

Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?

How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?

This is a standalone Sign of Love novel, inspired by Gemini.

Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.

Here’s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.

The phrase “trust me” should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20.

So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn’t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten—and not around my ankles.

Before I knew what was happening, I’d signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn’t be so bad.

I’ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble.

She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.

With requests for vanilla lovemaking that annoy Meyer to no end, Lindsay seems to be a lonely innocent needing an imitation of romance. Suzy and Lindsay discover a bond that only deepens once the camera stops rolling, but Lindsay has a secret—that “she” is really a he pretending to be a woman for research—and the cost of confessing could turn a simple arrangement into a hands-on education…

One well-intentioned night gone horribly wrong has landed the daughter of vice presidential candidate Christopher St. James on the front page of every newspaper and magazine in the country.

Forced by her father to stay out of the limelight, Lennon flees to the quiet town of Heaven, Texas, where she vows to lie low and avoid men. Well, except for the sexy biker she just ran off the road—she definitely won’t be avoiding him.

Noah has spent the last five years putting his life back together after secrets and lies ripped it apart. So what will happen when he learns the truth about Lennon?

When Hailey Harper left her family farm to enroll in veterinary school, she had a plan: keep her head down, ace her classes, and most importantly… don’t upset the uncle paying her tuition. Translation? Don’t piss off his dramatic, self-absorbed daughter, Danica, even if she’s a nightmare to live with.

Falling in love with her cousin’s rock star ex-boyfriend was definitely not part of the plan.

As the drummer of a now-famous rock band, Mike Madden could have any girl he wants. He’s sweet, funny, romantic, talented—and the only guy that’s ever made Hailey’s heart do cartwheels in her chest. The more she gets to know him, the harder she falls, but Hailey knows they can never be more than friends… because Danica wants him back, and she’ll fight dirty to win.

Mike is falling for Hailey too, but Danica’s threats and his rock star life—music video shoots, international tours, obsessed fans—could tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Hailey isn’t sure she’s the one for him, but Mike’s waited years for a girl like her… and he’ll do anything to prove it.

I loved the first book in this series wholeheartedly, but I ADORED every single word of Henry’s story—a story that was truly unexpected in its highs and lows, sexy yet breathtakingly compelling, and with two protagonists whose every facet leaves us breathless. Emma Chase’s wicked sense of humour shines bright in her every word, breathing life into her characters, and drawing the reader into a mouthwatering tale of royal shenanigans, reality television, and finding true love where you least expect it.

Aly Martinez excels in the Romantic Suspense genre as always, effortlessly combining nail-biting action with flawless development of her characters, and with this book, she had my undivided attention from the very first page. Hot, angsty, emotional, this is the story of two people forever tied to one another by one fated incident that changed their lives irreversibly, a tale of second chances and reclaimed destinies, of forgiveness and redemption, and of catching each other after the fall.

Read More...

A charming, comforting read start to finish, underneath this book’s witty narrative and playful tone hides a tender, passionate love story between two lifelong nemeses who keep blurring that fine line between love and hate over and over again, until they can’t even remember why they hated one another in the first place. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone seeking a lighthearted, sexy romance that would leave them smiling from ear to ear.

One of the most beautiful, poignant, and breathtaking stories I have ever read, this book not only embodies the consistently high calibre of Leylah Attar’s writing, or its timeless elegance, but the transcendent quality of her prose takes the reader’s soul on a journey like no other, leaving us gasping for air in its aftermath. Set against the vibrant backdrop of the African Serengeti, this extraordinary love story is also a compelling and, at times, sobering reminder of life’s many bittersweet moments, and of how much hope can be found among the ashes of one’s heart. SIX STARS!

I’ve been a fan of Cherrie Lynn​’s writing for many years, so I always get ridiculously giddy with anticipation whenever one of her books is set to release. The perfect marriage of romance and steam, her stories crackle with sexual chemistry—her bedroom scenes featuring some of the most intense, arousing sex I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading—but it is the emotion that is ever-present in her every word that keeps me coming back for more. And this book did not disappoint. It quite literally rocked my world.

A compelling and moving tale of love between two people inexplicably tied by fate, whose journeys to one another might have been long and riddled by loss, but whose connection remains forever written in the stars—this is a book I adored, cover to cover, and I can’t sing enough praises about its every beautiful word. In my eyes, A.L. Jackson is both poet and remarkable storyteller, and after every one of her books, I soar away certain of having found a new favourite.

We’ve known of Daisy and Marcus Sloan for so long, it felt like we knew them already, but nothing could have prepared us for the heart-wrenching story Kristen Ashley was waiting to tell. Technically a novella, this book never short-changes its reader with its brevity—it sinks its hooks into our hearts very early on in the story, and amazes us page after page with its unexpected intensity, its well-rounded characters, and its unwavering focus on the growing emotional bond between them.

So happy that one of my last reads of the year ended up being a SIX-STAR read!!! I never expected to find this perfect of a story, never even hoped I would connect with it so profoundly and adore its characters so much, but this book ended up being one of the most beautiful, poignant stories I have ever read. The author writes with such emotional intelligence, with so much heart and wit, it is impossible not to fall in love with these characters to the point of willingly losing ourselves in their every interaction. The story remains emotionally driven beginning to end, with no great highs or lows, but rather a constant stream of heartening moments that warm our souls from the inside out.
