At one time Kevin wanted a wife and children. After having bad relationships he decides that, he just wants something uncomplicated. Having a one night stand at a wedding he attended has him changing his mind. Lillian is a single mother of two and has a lot on her plate. Raising two kids, looking for a bigger home she has no time for anything else. After one night with Kevin she can’t stop thinking about him. Fate intervenes when Lillian has been assigned a new real estate agent and that agent is Kevin.
The story starts off with Kevin and Lillian having a one night stand. Neither expects to see each another again nor are they looking for a relationship. Both are surprised that he is her agent to help her look for a new home. The two of them start spending time together and discover they have feelings for one another. I liked that the story was slow paced with Kevin and Lillian building their relationship. Kevin is an all around great guy and he is amazing with Lillian’s kids. The chemistry between them is a slow boil that really pulled me into their romance. Lillian gives Kevin a new hope for love and happiness. These two are really great for one another and I wanted nothing more than to see them have that happily ever after. An all around great story with a lovely ending.

This story is fantastic. Reese wants to make Judi’s 30th birthday, a birthday she soon won’t forget. He plans to bring her to the edge and back, again and again, until they are home so they can unleash their passion. Even though their relationship has already been established, I found the story just as fulfilling as if they were starting out. Their emotions play off each other and their past is easy to follow! The love and devotion that Reese and Judi have for one another is clearly shown with their actions throughout the story. Reese plans out every detail and fantasy she has very carefully. Each page was most definitely a surprise and so thrilling with what awaited Judi.
Short. Sexy. Smoking hot!
Ethan asks his wife Jazmin to travel with him to Columbia while he is on a mission to protect the Secretary of State. Their trip soon turns disastrous and life-threatening. They are stranded in the Columbia woods with poisonous snakes and bugs, along with terrorist! They have no clue if they will make it out of there alive...
This story is action packed from start to finish. Ethan is a strong man and his wife Jazmin is just as fierce. From the beginning you can tell they have are so in love. The author did a great job showing this couple as already established. They soon find their lives in danger. Ethan assumes that the Secretary of state is in danger and terrorist want him dead. However, they discover that Ethan is the target and since he has many enemies from his former CIA career the twist becomes a mystery. Every character is a surprise and you either love/hate them.
his was a love story between Ethan and Jazmin, yet it was so full of adventure, mistrust, and danger made it such a hit for more. That's why I gave The Secretary's Bodyguard 5 stars!
This story is about three couples. Ginny Carter falls for her daughters ex fiancé Duncan despite the age difference! Maureen is Ginny’s best friend. She falls for a collection caller Alec. Lisa is Maureen’s recovering drug addict daughter falls for her good friend Amy. These three couples embark on exploring new relationships with one another despite their past issues.
Each couple have their own problems to get through. Lisa and Amy are good together they both share history of being recovering drug addicts and are compatible. I really enjoyed reading about their happy ending together.
Maureen had a hard life and finally takes a chance with Alec who has also had a trouble past. Maureen has struggled financially for years now and her daughter is a recovering drug addict. Alec's struggles financially as well. His wife is terminally ill and unaware of anything anymore. These two brought so much joy to one another.
Ginny and Duncan are my absolute favorite. Duncan was engaged to Ginny’s daughter and she was also married at the time, but five years later they both decide to take a chance. Now they must overcome the age difference and telling Ginny’s daughter. Colleen, Ginny's daughter, did not take the news well. In fact she has wanted to reconnect with Duncan herself.
I did find it hard to follow each of the stories due to the author switching between each couple so frequently. This happened through the whole story and I wished the author focused on one couple then move onto the next. It is still a romantic and hopeful read which is why I gave Splendor and Surrender four stars!
Sophia decides to take a chance and ask out her neighbor. Little does she know her whole life is about to change. Eitan is a man on a mission literally. He is looking for information on Ben Donovan. However, he does not expect to encounter Ben's lovely date for the evening ... Sophia and Eitan meet in the most interesting way. Eitan is looking for a killer and information. He stumbles upon Sophia while searching for Donovan. When Sophia goes to check on her date, she finds Eitan pretending to be his roommate. Thinking Sophia may know something he takes her with him to pump her for information. Neither of them could predict what happens next.
That cover is gorgeous! I really think the story is exciting. I love that Eitan is a hard and tough man, yet he shows a softer side saving helpless young woman while on the job. Sophia is shy and innocent. These two are the complete opposites, but they bring out each other’s strengths. I love the build up with Donovan and the “situation” they are in makes for one edge of your seat kind of story.
The romance is hot. The plot is fabulous. I have to give Dark Remdemption by Sarah Marsh five stars!
When Lorena finds The Castle, which specializes in Virtual Reality adventures to any time era, she and her friend jump at the chance to play. When they walk through the open door to 1969's London, it's apparent they've walked into more than just a game...
This is such an amazing story. The best time-travel story I’ve ever read! Time traveling back to 1969 under the pretense of a virtual reality experience provides these two women in their sixties another chance at love. Sherry returns at a time to take a chance she didn't take with Jeremy on the tube. They shared one kiss together and that has been her biggest regret.
Lorena, goes back with Sherry to London, however she returns home. While home she decides to spend time with her deceased husband Dave in California. They both take chances that, they didn't the first time around and really enjoy life to the fullest. What they didn't realize is that this virtual reality game is no game at all. I can't explain the twist because it'll give too much of the plot away but it is fabulous! I thought the idea and story is fresh, new and exciting. Both Sherry and Lorena have amazing stories. I must say I am shocked at how everything turns out. I’m glad that they are able to step back in time and go after what is important to them!
The author does an amazing job writing this story with such an interesting take on time-travel and virtual reality, making this a five star read!

Humans have been marked for and by the dragons for centuries, however they do not know dragons exist. Tattoo artist and dragon shifter Duncan Strannach faces problem when he scents his very human mate. Kerry Jo Watson cannot understand the insane attraction she feels to this dominant man. She came here to get a tattoo checked, not have these feelings for the artist—or get a job as his receptionist. She’s determined to not get involved with the boss. Duncan needs Kerry’s submission of her own free will, and it kills him to keep his distance. The revelation of “I turn into a fire-breathing dragon” tends to wreak havoc on a relationship. In the end, it’s all rather simple. They’re dragon mates, and when Kerry accepts the dominance of her Sir, magic happens.
Duncan, a tattoo artist and dragon shifter has all but given up on his mate coming to him. He is shocked to find his mate and that she is human. From the start I loved Kerry Jo and Duncan together. It is amazing how fate finally brings them together. Their story is fast past, but I like that it isn't prolonged with the dating or miscommunication. I find the way the author wrote this as exiting and sexy. Duncan and Kerry Jo's love of BDSM brings that extra heat to their relationship! I also think the secondary characters to be exciting and interesting. Dragon shifters are not as common as other shifters and I loved the way they are portrayed in this story! I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

Seth is just a genuine man who wants to do good in the world! Lyndi, has fallen on hard times as well. After losing her child, she has a lot to overcome and she starts on her path to recovery. Meeting Seth has brought out feelings she never thought she would have again. I love her personality and that of her family. These two make each other complete!

Tempted is a thrilling tale of an angel and human finding love again to heal one another!

To escape the summer heat, swingers Brett and Jen go to Minnesota's clothing optional RV resort, where the rules are very different from the swing lifestyle venues they’re used to. They spot a hot looking couple in the swimming pool, they are most definitely interested, but they know better than to make the first move. Will Paul and Kim turn out to be players, or will Brett and Jen get a cold shoulder?
Brett and Jen have an unbreakable bond; they lead an interesting, alternative lifestyle. These two venture to a RV Resort where clothing is optional. This intrigues them, especially since the meet Paul and Kim, who they want to, have fun with. The story has potential. I liked that Brett and Jen are so confident in their relationship to be swingers. Their romance is sexy and fun. I did give this a rating of a three because it was so short and I felt like the story needed more development!

Evangeline Prewitt has had better days. Her rent has increased and now she has to pay for car repairs. She asks her boss for help with her financial situation. His solution? Enter The Vampire Games. Evie has her doubts about being sold off to the highest bidder.—Who would want a plump waitress? However, desperate times call for drastic measures. Besides, it’s only sex. What can possibly go wrong? Atlan St. James seeks out The Games for a little distraction. This three-hundred-year-old vampire is drawn to the delicious human. Evie will be his, at least for the night. What neither of them counts on is the instant connection between them. After all, sex is easy. Emotions are far more difficult to negotiate. As far as Atlan is concerned, the only solution is to let his precious angel go. Evie, however, will not let go that easy! The game is on.
From the start Evie’s character draws you in. She has fallen on hard times and we've all been there. She doesn’t expect a three hundred year old vampire to buy her for the night though. Atlan, is confident with himself, and knows what he wants. I really enjoyed this story. Evie's twist of fate really is incredible and then bring in Atlan who is a vampire. That makes it more interesting and thrilling especially when his past life is revealed and what he has been through. I feel like Atlan has waited his whole existence for Evie.
These two and their story are perfection. I look forward to the next book in this series!
