The media is hell-bent on exposing Winter’s private life; Cayden will do anything to protect her. But there’s more than just the paparazzi out to get them. Involved in an unprecedented web of strange events, and a string of lies about to break with devastating consequences, Winter must battle ghosts from her past that threaten to harm the man she loves? Faced with a choice she always knew she would have to make, and a secret of her own. Can the fairytale Winter’s been living with Cayden beat the odds of their reality and really come true?
When I read the first story, I thought it couldn’t get any better. I was so very wrong. Winter and Cayden are living an amazing fairytale of love. The feelings they have are stronger than ever. However, their perfect world is about to be shattered with lies and deceit. Winter’s story broke my heart in the beginning and then she found love again with Cayden. He is an amazing man who holds Winter and their love on a pedestal. The second book in this series is just as intense and beautiful as the first book. Their relationship has me reeling and feeling like I am on a roller coaster with my emotions.
I am sad to see the story end, but their love is truly epic and forever!
Two Hearts, One Soul Duet is a must read series!

Winter never understood love until she met Austin, the man who would rock her world. But the night before they are to be married, everything shatters to pieces. Thirteen years later Winter is pulled out of her seclusion only to have a painful past confront her. She’s left questioning reality, because the impossible is looking back at her with the face of an angel, and piercing eyes in familiar shades of blue.
When I first started reading this story I fell in love with Winter and her whole demeanor. Her whole life consists of awkward encounters and a crappy boss. Then Austin enters the picture, and he is a true gentleman. He shows Winter to believe in herself and builds her up. Then tragedy strikes leaving Winter torn in two, until she meets Cayden. The story is amazing from cover to cover. The story has several ups and downs, making me feel like I was on an emotional roller coaster, you know the kind you can’t wait to get back on again. I can't wait to read what happens in the next book!
Always is an exceptional romance that I would recommend again and again!

Sara is the daughter of Senator Jentsen Holbrook. Her father also plans to run for president. Everything she does is under a watchful eye of everyone and she always does what she is told. And then she runs away from her obligations and wakes up in Cross deRaven’s and Erik Hale’s world. Two hot guitarists from the mega band Cinder. For the first time in her life she feels free, however, scandal from her behavior is inevitable.
The story from the start grabs you. The author details how Sara must behave and what’s expected of her. Then she all of a sudden does a 180 and everything changes. She meets two guys that are completely different from the world she has lived in and they treat her the way she deserves. Sara is given her voice and she finally takes action which I thoroughly enjoyed. I think the author does a great job with Sara’s story. The day to day living of a band on tour and living on a bus is great as well as hot and comical at times.
Every Single Part of You is well written and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the other band mates.

Title: Trouble In Paradise
Author: London St. James
Length: Novel, 250 pgs
Genres: Menage, Western, Contemporary,
TBR Reviewer: Jean
Rating: 3 stars - a good read
Heat: 5 - orgasmic
I should have stayed in Dallas!
That 's exactly what editor-turned-ranch owner Sutton Calloway is thinking after multiple assaults on her person, livestock and property at Paradise Ranch threaten to overwhelm her. With her parents gone and her grandmother recently passed, Sutton inherits her childhood home and leaves her city job to take over the reins (pardon the pun) of a Texas cattle ranch called Paradise. The pretty, blond and shapely Ms Calloway takes on big trouble not only in running the huge operation but fending off rival landowners as well as two (count 'em) two ridiculously sexy locals that won't keep their hands off her. So many obstacles are enough to make a gal 'take a no-time' (rodeo talk) and walk away from Paradise forever.
Okay, I gotta go 'native' on this one, and say that those of y'all who can't get yer fill of stereotypical country jargon, music, clothing and cowboys are gonna love this story. Can't rightly say I'm one of them, but reckon I can see its appeal to those that do. I've read this author's work before and chose the book on that basis. When I was just about to 'take a no-time' for myself after stumbling across 'a passle o' typos' (This review is based on an advanced reader copy, however.) I'd say things got interesting "in the bedroom department" except that most of the hot action takes place just about everywhere except the bedroom! When I say hot, I mean hot dawg diggity damn hot...as in 'I ain't never seen the like o' such mud-wrasslin, lip-smackin, out-behind- the-woodshed dirty doins' afore. Tarnation, its enough ta make a body plumb furgit all about the dang typos. Y'all might need a skinny dip in the local swimmin' hole after reading a few of these scenes. (I really did love how the author wrote these scenes!!)
While its not inconceivable, in Texas anyway, that a gal might have to return to the farm and be solo among an all-male population, its a bit much to believe Sutton's perfect looks, body, wardrobe, etc. etc. makes every male character within eyeshot fall weakly to his knees for her. Needless to say its not long before things start "falling" off Sutton, mostly her clothing and her virtue. Her two main squeezes however, Kale and Flint have some great character development and things in their own tortured pasts that draw them to Sutton. The pair make a classic "good-boy, bad-boy" combination, tearing our heroine in two directions.
If you can get past the country rhetoric, Trouble in Paradise has a good flow and enough action to hold up its 250 pages. The troubles Sutton faces are real enough and readers can sympathize, in the end, with both her dilemma and her situation. Speaking of ends, the conclusion of this story may leave more than a few readers 'a-cussin'.
We met Ryker in Spanked By the Bad Boy as Declan hot but cold as ice twin brother. His ice melts at the thought of Molly Monroe, his childhood crush. She is the girl next door and survives unbearable abuse at the hands of her father until the government intervenes. When Ryker comes back to town and stakes a claim on Molly for good it will shake up her very existence. Will this love be steady or will Ryker leave at the first sign of discomfort. If they can make it, will a threat from outside end their chances before they’ve even begun?
Once again London Saint James writes a bad boy with a heart of gold. He is believable in both roles and I found myself rooting for him even in the first book. The love scenes are, as usual, on point, interesting, and red hot! The plot is engaging. These brothers have found a soft spot in my heart and both are newly welcomed book boyfriends!
Claimed by the Bad Boy is a must read!

Tiffany Brooks is somewhat addicted to poor choices in life and even poorer choices in men. She has turned a new life since her last long term mistake and refuses to fall for the man she had a one night anonymous hookup with at a halloween party a few years before. The only problem is the attraction has only grown since then and she finds herself losing a battle to his charm, his caring heart, and his command of her senses as well as her body. Declan Cage is a bad boy with a good heart. He rescues Tiffany from a potentially dangerous date and from then is hooked on being more than just a fling for her. He pulls out all the stops and wages a battle for her heart and body. With some speed bumps along the way, it will be up to the two of them to decide if love is worth the risk?
First off, I loved this story. The hot love scenes were amazing and completely worth the wait. I was impressed with the development of the characters, their pasts, and their current situations. Both of the main characters were flawed in normal ways from their life experiences and nothing in this book was completely out of the realm of possibility. Ms. Saint James obviously did research and that always makes the story more attractive to me. 5 stars for an overall awesome sexy angsty romp with a HEA ending!! I can’t wait to read the sequel about Declan’s sexy brother!

Peter Pan is all grown up and seriously sexy!
The descriptions in this book were beautiful! Wyndi and Petur were fabulous characters. I also really liked the other ‘lost boys’. Everyone had a solid, dimensional feel to them. There was great action scenes and sizzling romance.
The four stars is actually for the plot. It’s peter pan and the Fae plus there’s magic and flying warriors. There’s also a fairy that can shape shift into a...hummingbird. That was confusing. Was she a fairy or shape shifter? Both? Was she a giant hummingbird or did she shrink? What does hummingbirds have to do with anything? Oh, and ALL the lost boys have their own unique power. It was a lot going on. Too much.
But the story was really good and I loved the idea of a Peter Pan for grownups. Wyndi and Petur had great chemistry. Between the action and the romance I really enjoyed this book. I’d be interested in seeing where the series goes from here.

The Good Sister: Part Two by London St. James
Genre: erotic romance (with a side of suspense)
Length: novel (208 pgs.)
TBR Reviewer: Amanda
Rating: 4 stars - Recommended Read.
Heat: 4 Handcuffs - An Erotic Ride.
Trinity Winslow has conquered, at least to some extent, the fears that have kept her homebound for years. She has followed her heart and neighbor, Reid Addison, to France and discovered that what she thought she wanted was not what she needed. Instead, her journey has led her to Lord Ashton Archer, who wants to love her for life. Many obstacles still stand between Trinity, Archer, and forever, though, not least of which are family and Reid.
This two-part Cinderella story has a great ending to it. Trinity and Archer have to fight through family prejudices and secrets, get past telling both families, and deal with jealous "friends" to get to their happily ever after. Without giving anything away, I'll just say that someone's past comes back and bites them in the butt, but it eventually helps clear the air. My only real
issue with this story was the formality of the dialogue at times between Trinity and Archer seemed odd, but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed the read.
The Good Sister: Part One by London St. James
Genre: erotic romance
TBR Reviewer: Amanda
Rating: 4 Stars - Recommended Read.
Heat: 5 Handcuffs - Orgasmic.
Trinity Winslow is damaged goods - especially in her own mind. After surviving the fall of the Twin Towers but losing her father, she has become a mess of phobias that control her life and have helped drain her family's finances. However, when the man she falls for leaves her still a virgin after she offers herself to him, she chooses to find the strength to change herself and follow him to France, hoping against hope to become a woman he would want. More than
just finding Reid, Trinity finds a group of protectors/friends that want to help her change but encourage her to find out what she wants, not just what Reid wants and also meets a man who seems to want her the way she is.
This book has an interesting love triangle, fascinating characters, and a feisty heroine with an
insecurity complex. I enjoyed the story although it had some bizarre moments and
suffered from some editing problems (like the occasional misspellings and point of view
change from first person to third and back). By the end of the story, I was pulling for one man over the other and look forward to seeing how their story ends in the second part of The Good Sister. The Good Sister: part One was a fun read.

Eternal By London Saint James

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Paranormal Romance
Winter is about to find out that sometimes to get what your heart really wants, you have to give up what you always thought you wanted. You can love someone with all your heart but it may not be enough to hold a relationship together, you have to sacrifice and compromise. Is she willing to compromise herself?
The fourth and final book. This is an author that I will continue to follow as she has proven once again to be a diamond in the rough, an all out original author.
I loved the plot, the vivid imagery, the heart rendering emotions and the anything but generic cast that make up this book but these things are nothing new to us, they are the genetic makeup of this series. What makes this book a five star is actually it’s differences to all its other predecessors. For instance despite being sad to leave the main characters I especially loved
finally having a solid ending. Another majorly, enjoyable difference is we finally see Winter completely blossom into adulthood and while I enjoyed her as a teenager and enjoyed seeing her in her adaptation this was even sweeter.
I was torn how to rate this because in all honesty, I’m still not happy about how these books were broken up. I understand that this is not the author’s fault but most likely the choice of the publisher, however that doesn’t change my feelings that many of the books in this series should NOT have been broken up and didn’t deliver the quality of the amount asked for it. However, rating this book by itself and from what I read, it could stand alone, it full out deserves a five and so I gave it such and so comes the end of my reviews for this unique, enjoyable, slightly controversial series. Many thanks again to the author for ride.
