• Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster

     Everything seems to fall into place when you last expect it to. 
    Tempe needing a quiet place, Nash needing a boarder.  Sometimes you get more than you thought was ever possible.  I really love a story where one of the lead characters has a child.  It just seems to call to my heart in a way other books don’t.  A man with a child is totally hot, especially one as cute as Flip! (LOL)
    Without Tempe answering his ad, Nash would have never found the closure with PJ his soul needed.  I had tears in my eyes at many points in this book,
    I really loved how outspoken Tempe was with Nash.  He really needed it.  They were really sweet together.
    Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business.
    That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water.
    Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive. Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world.
    For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

  • Snapped by TM Smith

    This book is jammed packed full of action, passion, and heartache.  It has been a while since I read the previous books in this series, but with this book, I became reacquainted with the many Opposites characters.

    I so look forward to more of Apollo and Ian.  There is so much to their story, and I can’t wait to find out what that is.

     

    Retribution Runs Deep

    The line between retribution and vengeance is often just as thin as the line between love and hate.
    Cillian feels his life was stolen from him and is out for revenge. Grieving and seeking retribution for the death of his twin sister, August is easy prey. Cillian latches onto his grief and feeds into it, using the Outkast as a weapon to strike out at the family that abandoned him. When August learns the truth behind his sister’s death, everything changes. 
    Hector arrives at House Gaeland for a wedding, only to wind up in the middle of an unexpected war between brothers. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to an Outkast with hair as fiery as his temper. The immediate, intense, and mutual attraction stirs up an entirely different set of issues. To be together, August and Hector will need to thwart the most evil of plans and accomplish the most daring of rescues, all before Cirian follows through with his threat to drop August off the side of a cliff.  
    The people of House Gaeland have endured much, and yet, there is more trouble on the horizon. A birth and a wedding are far too much happiness for the universe to allow, so to level the playing field, the devil must add his cards to the deck. Violence begets violence and Cirian is perfectly willing to take a dagger to his brother, if need be. Will he feel the same if the blood spilled belongs to someone much closer to his heart? 
    Snapped is the third book in the Opposites series, the series must be read in order. It is an adult, dystopian majorly M/M series that encompasses all manners of relationships (including M/F and F/F). In this world logic is irrelevant, love is key, and things get broken—just ask Aiyan and Kaden.

    *Warning* there is a brief mention of sexual assault, though not in detail.

    God bless the Paradise Alpha Male.  One thing about Paradise is that love at first sight is abundant and the women make them work for their affections.

    This Paradise novella was hote and full of emotion, but way too short!  Aiden is everything a woman can ask for.  

    I have really come to adore the Town of Paradise.  Even though the inhabitants have had their hardships and heartaches, in the end, they all found “Paradise” in the arms of the person they love.

    I wanna party with the McKinnon Sisters, discuss books with Caro, and get the men to take off their shirts with Aunta Orla.

    claimed-teaser-ready-to-be-claimedInstalove! Fire Chief Aiden James often fell in lust, but not in love. That was — until the beautiful new librarian Carolina Mayfair showed up in his small town. The sparks flew and set them both aflame for one magical night, and the resulting inferno changed both of their lives forever.

    Caro Mayfair was passionate, committed, and not looking for love at all. She just wanted to use her newly-minted college degree at the small library in the mountain town of Paradise. Little did she know that she was about to meet the man that would set her world on fire!

    Erotica, romantica, and all sorts of other stuff!

    28K-word standalone novella; can be read as standalone or part of the Passion in Paradise series.

    Aiden had known the second he laid his eyes on that spectacular hourglass figure of hers that he wanted her. Of course he had. A man would have to be dead not to want to spend time between those gorgeous thighs, worshiping at those fantastic breasts while he fucked into what he’d bet was the tightest pussy in creation. Yes, his cock had screamed ‘MINE!’ the moment his gaze settled on her fine little body. But the second she’d turned and he’d seen her exquisite face for the first time… yeah, he’d been done. He’d known that woman would hold him – heart, mind, body, and soul.

    There’d been no question at all.

    He was claiming sweet Carolina for his own.

  • Dare To Dream by CA Harms

    The perfect book to come out on Valentine’s Day!  Like most books from C.A. Harms, I had tears of sadness and happiness at different times.  Greer goes through more than one loss, only to find herself, a hot as sin man, and two little princesses.  Darren suffered his own loss.  Everyone bugged him to move on for the sake of the girls and himself, but he couldn’t even think about it.  That is until he caught site of the beautiful Greer.

    I really thought their story was truly touching.  A love story for sure, but also about healing after loss.  I loved the two girls, Vivian and Violet.  So cute!!  But, my favorite character was Grandma Norma Raye.  I would have so much fun with her…..I would take her to a bar or a strip club and have a blast!

     

    Dare to Dream Ebook Final.jpg

    After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.

    Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.

    When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.

    But it is, of course, only a dream.

    She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.

    But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.

    Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.

    Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.

    “So who is the girl?” My mother’s question confused me, and the look on my face must have expressed that confusion. “The one the girls keep talking about,” she added unhelpfully. “Vivian said you were talking to a pretty lady today and she made you smile. The one from the blue house.”

    I shook my head and chuckled as I finally understood. How could a friendly introduction between two neighbors be interpreted as anything more than it was? Then again, I was dealing with two girls that had their pushy, nosy, need to-fix-it-all granny fishing for any snippet of my nonexistent personal life.

    The woman was hell-bent on me being happy, but I was happy. I had my girls, and I didn’t need anyone else.

    “Just a new occupant in the vacation home behind us,” I said and got back to working on the pipe below her kitchen sink.

    But she kept hovering. “Oh yeah,” she said dragging out the word a little longer than necessary.

    “Yeah, Ma,” I said, ignoring her strange interest in nothing. “Just a simple hello, nothing more.”

    “That isn’t what Vivian told me,” she said, her voice laced with humor.

    Oh Lord, the woman either needed a damn hobby or she needed to focus on my brother, who was twenty-six and still living above her damn garage. He was the one who needed a push, not me.

    “Vivian is four years old, and she still believes in princesses and dragons.” I leaned out from under the sink and gave my mother an exasperated look. “Gossiping with my daughter about my love life, or lack thereof, isn’t your style, Ma.”

    “Yesh, it is.” I looked to my left to find Dean, my brother, talking through a mouthful of chips as the crumbs fell from his lips to the floor at his feet. “She doesh it all the time,” he assured me, still attempting to talk with his mouth full. I looked back at my mother.

    She shrugged and gave me that innocent look she used to her advantage often, only this time I didn’t buy it. She was guilty.

    Guilty of prying and using my daughter—or daughters, I had to assume—as her window into my life.

    The woman was evil.

    A little about me. Let’s see where to start.

    I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.

    I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.
