ABOUT THE BOOK


A reformed cat burglar. Can he be trusted?

Self-made socialite Francesca "Ferris" Byrd is too sharp to be fooled by even the smartest--and sexiest--man, even when he's notorious ex-thief Patrick Blackheart, now one of San Francisco's most eligible bachelors. Blackheart runs a respectable security business these days, and seems like the perfect man to protect the fabulous Von Emmerling emeralds. All he has to do is make certain the jewels get back to their owner after an elite charity ball.

And all Ferris has to do is make sure he isn't tempted to keep them. The problem is, temptation is Blackheart's specialty, and from the moment they meet it's clear that he'd love to steal Ferris away from her stodgy life.

When the emeralds disappear, Blackheart is a top suspect. His reputation--and Ferris's hard-won social standing--are at stake. What's a woman to do when she's got to kick off her high heels and follow her heart?

Book Review - Snow Falling on Bluegrass by Molly Harper

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK


Parks & Recreation meets The Blue Collar Comedy Tour in this third ebook in Molly Harper’s Bluegrass series of contemporary romances: A love triangle of colleagues heats up the winter lodge where they get snowed in for a week.

Kentucky Tourism Commission employee and executive assistant extraordinaire Kelsey is known around the office for having everything under control. So it’s not surprising that she and her boss, Sadie, have everything planned to the second for the office winter retreat. But there are things even Kelsey can’t micromanage.

An unprecedented snowstorm smothers half of Kentucky and knocks out the power, closes the roads, and generally shuts down the state. Luckily, the lodge has working fireplaces and enough food to keep the staff from turning on each other like something out of The Shining. Kelsey wouldn’t mind being stuck inside if it wasn’t for the tension with her not-so-secret crush, Charlie, the office’s statistician. But handsome Ranger Luke, …

Book Review - Tycoon Takedown (Loan Star Burn Book 2) by Ruth Cardello

ABOUT THE BOOK


Ruth Cardello’s second steamy and sensual book in the Lone Star Burn series may leave you blushing.

Melanie Hanna has finally worked up the courage to travel to New York and tell an old flame that he’s the father of her young son. She’s done hiding and apologizing for her one impulsive night. When her best friend asks her brother to watch over Melanie, her emotional trip takes an unexpected and sizzling detour.

Charles Dery is at the top of his game, but all he can think about is bedding the woman he was asked to protect. When she’s almost killed, he takes what he’d been denying himself and discovers he’ll do anything to keep her—even break his own rules.

When it comes to love, two wrongs may just finally make a right.
REVIEW


One of the reasons I love Ruth Cardello’s books is because I know I can count on her to write characters with heart and a great sense of humor. She did not disappoint here. Melanie is a likable character that is easy to relate to and root for from the …

Book Review - Life After Perfect by Nancy Naigle

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK

Katherine Barclift had it all: the perfect job, the perfect car, and what she thought was the perfect marriage. But when her entire world collapses in one stomach-churning instant, she hits the road and keeps driving until that so-called “perfect life” is just a dot in her rearview mirror.

A chance encounter leads her to make a pit stop in Boot Creek, a drowsy little North Carolina town where she can call herself Katy, soak up the peace and quiet…and drink in the bluer-than-blue eyes of Derek Hansen, a local doctor still wrestling with his own painful past. Both Katy and Derek are wary about giving romance another shot, but they can’t deny the intense attraction between them. And if being in Boot Creek has taught them anything, it’s to take life as it comes and never pass up a chance at true love…no matter how wounded your heart may be.

REVIEW


This book was a very enjoyable read, until the end. The end felt very rushed and left me almost disappointed after a great book a…

Book Review - Teasing Trent by M. Malone

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK


The only thing Trent's best friend has ever asked of him is to keep an eye on his twin sister while he's deployed. Keeping her company on her birthday shouldn't be too hard. He just has to remember the promise he made to himself in college to keep his hands off her. 

Ever since Mara walked into her brother's dorm room freshman year and came face to face with a shirtless Trent, she's known he was The One. He’s been right there with her twin brother as her biggest supporter or shoulder to cry on, whichever she needs most. 

The problem? 

Trent has no idea how she feels. 

Well, it's her first birthday without her twin and Trent's coming over to keep her company. It's the perfect time to tease him a little. A skimpy yoga outfit and a few glasses of wine later, she plans to finally have Trent exactly where she wants him. 

In her bed, for as long as she can keep him there. 

If Mara has her way, she'll get a whole lot more for her birthday than a Ha…
