Book Review - Hidden Treasure (Billionaire Bachelors #9) by Melody Anne

ABOUT THE BOOK


The second book in the Lost Anderson series is here, and it comes to you with a kicking and screaming heiress. 
Brielle Storm inherits a dilapidated ranch in the wilds of Montana and she isn’t happy about her situation in the least. She may be moving to her new home, and she may be planning on doing whatever it takes to make her billionaire father happy, but she certainly won’t be doing it with a smile on her face. 

No. Brielle plans on coming to Montana, hiring some ranch hand to do all the work, and then getting out of there before the first winter snow has a chance to hit. 

Montana isn’t a state that offers predictable weather and Brielle is going to find out that the land isn’t the only thing she has to fear. 

When her hotter than any city boy ever dreams of being, cowboy neighbor shows up on her doorstep, Brielle decides that maybe Montana isn’t so bad after-all. 

That is until he laughs openly at her city girl ways. Then, she has something to prove… 

REVIEW


Fast paced summer read.  Brielle and Colt have a sizzling romance. I really enjoyed the story and the characters were interesting.  At times I had difficultly suspending my disbelief.  Everything just felt rushed throughout the book.  I never felt that point where the attraction clicked to the point where they were both making bad business decisions to be together. 


The book was fairly similar to the previous books I've read by Melody Anne.  I enjoyed the Baby for the Billionaire and the Surrender series more, but this was still an enjoyable read.

“Readers will fall in love with Rick, who is the ultimate book boyfriend with his good looks and bad-ass attitude.”  –RT BOOK REVIEWS, TOP PICK!, 4 ½ STARS

REVIEW


Judy and Rick have an undeniable chemistry that began in the previous book in this series.  That book is not necessary to read prior to this one, but would be helpful for a new reader to understand these characters backgrounds better.  Since the whole series has been enjoyable, I’d recommend just going back to the first book and working your way through to this one, I promise you’ll get through them in no time.


The story and the characters are well crafted, and the hint of mystery helps keep the book moving.  Anyone who loves Contemporary Romance will love this book.

Book Review - No Ordinary Bloke by Mary Whitney

ABOUT THE BOOK


I’m not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It’s all a matter of chance. It’s both your circumstances and the chances you take. So I've always been a gambler and a ladies man — they love me and I love them. Now I've found one like no other — an American, Allison Wright. When I met her, the fates were on my side, but too soon I learned the odds were against me.

REVIEW

I absolutely loved this book. I love everything the author has published, so I wasn't surprised with how well written this story was. Very few books actually bring me to tears, but this one did… several times. I really enjoyed the character growth of David from the previous books, but even more so his growth in this book because he was in love.

The romance between David and Allison was well done and I enjoyed that it took time to unfold. The challenges that kept them apart were realistic and felt natural and Whitney does an amazing job of getting the reader to feel right along with the characters.

This entire book was written from David’s POV (except the epilogue) and I felt that really worked for this story. I recommend this for anyone who loves British heroes, well written romance, or fabulous characters.

Book Review - The Lost Love of a Soldier by Jane Lark

Lost Love of a Soldier Tour photo LostLoveSoldierTour_zps6b9a5965.jpg The Lost Love of a Soldier photo ThelostloveofaSoldier300dbi_zpsb47e47d2.jpeg Title: The Lost Love of a Soldier (Marlow Intrigues #4) Author: Jane Lark Genre: Historical Romance 18+ Regency Period Publication Date: July 17, 2014 Publisher: HarperImpulse an imprint of HarperCollins Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

Synopsis

Young, na├»ve and innocent, Lady Ellen Pembroke falls for a young army officer. Paul has such an easy enchanting smile and his blue eyes glow, vibrancy and warmth emanating from him. She is in love. Captain Paul Harding, finds his attention captured by the beautiful young daughter of the Duke of Pembroke at a house party in the summer. Finding Ellen is like finding treasure on a battle torn field. His sanity clings to her; something beautiful to remind him that all in the world is not ugly. She’s someone to fight for and someone to survive for when he is called to arms in the battle of Waterloo…    

The Lost Love of a Soldier Excerpt

“Ellen?” Paul whispered her name into the night as he heard the rustle of frost bound leaves on the ground. His breath rose in a mist into the cold winter air. He was on the Duke of Pembroke’s land. He’d not dared encourage her to take a horse, so he’d come close enough that she might walk from the house and find him. He waited at the end of an avenue of yews, out of sight of the house, in a place she could easily see him. His horse whickered, sensing something, or someone. “Ellen?” he whispered again. Still no answer. He stayed quiet. Listening. Wondering if she’d been caught as she left the house. He hoped not. If she’d been caught her father would give her no freedom. Short of leading a military assault on Pembroke’s home, he would not be able to get her out then. The horse shook its head, rattling its bit, and snorted steamy breath into the cold air. The chill of the winter night seeped through his clothes. There would be a hard frost. He hoped she’d dressed in something warm. He’d have to buy more clothes for her before they sailed. She would need garments to keep her warm in the sea breezes she’d face on their journey to America. There was another sound. “Ellen?” “Paul?” How did this woman manage to make his heart beat so erratically whenever he saw her? He could run into battle and not be so affected. She looked even more beautiful in the dark. Ethereal. A band of silver light reached through the scudding clouds and caught her face. He let go of the horse’s bridle and instinctively moved forward. He’d never held her. In the summer there had been no moments alone, she’d been strictly chaperoned and even when she’d come to meet him she’d brought the groom and her sister. When they’d met a fortnight ago, she’d still brought a groom. For the first time they were alone. “Ellen.” He stepped forward and embraced her. In answer her arm came about his waist. It was the most precious feeling of his life. He would always remember this day. She was slender and delicate in his arms. She slipped free, but he caught her nape and pulled her mouth to his, gently pressing his lips against hers. It was her first kiss, he knew; he could tell by the way her body stiffened when he‘d pulled her close. He let her go, a tenderness he’d never known before catching in his chest. “Come.” He took the leather bag she carried. “Will you ride before me, or would you rather sit behind my saddle and grip my waist?” “Would it be easier if I ride behind you?” Her voice ran with uncertainty. She was giving up everything to come with him. “Do what feels comfortable for you, Ellen.” She nodded, not looking into his eyes. “I would prefer to ride pillion.” “Then you shall.” He warmed his voice, hoping to ease her discomfort. Turning to the horse he slipped one foot in the stirrup, then pulled himself up. “Did you have any difficulty leaving the house?” “No, the servants’ hall was quiet, and the grooms had all retired.” He rested her bag across his thighs, then held a hand out to her. “Set your foot on mine and take my hand. I’ll pull you up.” He watched her lift the skirt of her dark habit and then the weight of her small foot pressed on his, as her gloved fingers gripped his. She was light, but the grip of her hand and the pressure of her foot made that something clasp tight in his chest, and the emotion stayed clenched as her fingers embraced his waist over his greatcoat. He shifted in the saddle, his groin tightening too. A few more days. Just days. He had been waiting months. As he turned the horse, Ellen’s cheek pressed against his shoulder. “Did you tell anyone you were leaving? Your sister? Or your maid?” “No, I did not want them to have to face Papa knowing the truth. He would be able to see they’d lied, and then who knows what he might do.” Paul urged the mare into a trot as Ellen continued. “He made me spend the day on my knees reading the Commandments because I refused to marry the Duke of Argyle.” “Today?” He wished to look back at her but he could not. Her father had been diabolical to Paul, sneering as though he was nothing when he’d done the decent thing and offered for her. He could not imagine the way Pembroke treated the girls. He had to get Ellen to Gretna before her father caught them, so she never had to come back and face his retribution.      

Goodreads


Review

This was a wonderful read for fans of the series.  It could work as a stand alone as well, but knowing what was in store for Ellen's future made it more enjoyable for me.  Of course I love spoilers and read the last page of a book first, so what do I know?

I really did love this entire series.  Historical Romance is not typically my thing, but these stories were well written and thought out and the characters were interesting and fun to read about.

excerpt

     In that one kiss, which was so similar and different from our first, I knew I’d never kiss anyone like this again. It would be impossible to find that perfect match anywhere else—ever.
     When he pulled away, I was panting and I wondered how I’d find the strength to stand later on, but it didn’t matter.
     “I can’t make it upstairs,” he said, trailing his kisses down my neck and chest while he adjusted his straining crotch. I’d never seen jeans burst at their seams, but I was beginning to believe I’d get a chance tonight.
     “I don’t think I’d let you even if you tried.” My voice trembled.
     “You’re nervous,” he said.
      I nodded.
      “So am I.”
     He looked at me from above.
     “Really?”
     “Yes. We didn’t know what we were doing back then. Now there are standards and expectations.” His lopsided grin that captivated me returned.
     I reached up to touch his cheek with my palm, smoothing it along his freshly shaved jaw. “No expectations. I just want you. I want us, even if it’s as clumsy as when we were young.” Although something deep in my belly told me my body was about to be blessed by this graceful man in ways I hadn’t expected.
     Adrian unbuckled his pants and slid them off his hips, which wasn’t easy over that bulge. I remained on the chaise, running my tongue over my lower lip, watching the power of his muscles flex with each move. His arousal strained underneath his boxer-briefs. As he lowered himself to the chaise, I couldn’t get enough of his new body. Nearly naked, he lay at my side, admiring me, tracing his fingers up and down my belly, right around my navel. A rush of goose bumps spread from there in an outward pattern.
     A soft moan of impatience escaped my mouth which he immediately soothed with a kiss. At the increasing demand of his swelling lips I opened wider, and he weaved his tongue inside me. I whimpered in response. Kissing him still seemed so unreal. Finally my hands moved and I drew them up his arms to the back of his neck, tracing my fingers along his hairline and then lower to his back. Under my palms, his shoulder blades twitched as his hand skimmed down my body. Adrian’s lower back flexed, and he groaned desire into my mouth.
     He braced his forehead against mine, saying, “I adore kissing you,” and then moved his lips to my cheek and down my neck to my cleavage before looking up and adding, “Everywhere.”
