Dr. Jordan Scott is banking everything, including her life, that she can
simply disappear into thin air, forget the nightmare she left behind in New
York, and never be found again by her ex- fiance Caesar Santiago or his
Detective Riley Donavan believes the pretty doctor knows more than she's
telling him. Can they work together to solve the murder of her brother, or
will they end up the next victims of the crime lord?
Worth Staying For is a serious and sensual suspense story. While you know
who the bad guy is for most of the story the tension is still ever present
and the anticipation is palpable. I enjoyed the fact that Jordan was a
smart successful woman who still found herself in a dangerous situation, it
was a very believable scenario and I had no trouble imagining the
intelligent woman still finding herself in such a mess. Riley took me a
little to warm up to but once he did ease past my resistance he burrowed
down deep and I could not have asked for a greater match for the heroine of
the story. The chemistry between the two was wonderful and the attraction
between them was almost as taut as the criminal mystery. I enjoyed this
story and look forward to seeing what else this author has to offer. If you
are looking for a romantic suspense story without the over-the-top sex and
violence you will definitely like this one.

High school geometry teacher, Donna Russell likes her life well-ordered and
logical, even if it is a tad solitary at times. But when a charming
co-worker at the local food bank disappears just before Christmas, Donna is
left with more questions than solutions.
After the missing man's neighbor, muscle-bound EMT Sam Holton, volunteers
as Donna's crime-fighting sidekick, sparks fly between them. Donna wonders
if Sam can be trusted, or if he's trying to throw an unknown into her
calculations--and her life.
And when police recover a body from the icy Niagara River, Donna is faced
with the most frustrating equation of all: can murder plus mayhem ever
Gold, Frankincense, and Murder is a sweet, short, sleuthy story. While I
would have preferred a little romance to go with this holiday treat, I
enjoyed the tone and pace of this story. Donna is not your typical romance
heroine and it was rather refreshing to see the world through her eyes.

Paranormal Mates Society, where finding the love of your life is
supernatural, super easy!
Tired of squeamish humans passing you over because blood is your beverage
of choice? Are your fins fed up with the goldfish bowl of dating? Did the
devil make you give up on ever finding your soul mate? Long to soar to the
heavens with the match of your dreams? Log on to
Vamps masquerade as werewolves, fire serpents melt the hearts of Yetis, a
psychic tames her genie -- it's Satan's own online dating service, and
chaos has never been quite this hot!
In Matchmaker's Match Willa Okati gives readers a different glimpse in to
the mind of the devil himself and when you add in an angel and an ancient
god this is a trio of strong men with overwhelming sexual appetites. I
enjoyed how gritty the encounter between the Wanderer, Scratch and Loki
was. The descriptions were awesome and I had no problem picturing the
cluttered room. While I prefer my stories a little on the sweeter side I
did enjoy the humor and twists of this tale.
A genie lamp plays a key roll in Lacey Savage's Finders Keepers but it's
the genie himself who steals the show while the heroine steals his heart.
Claudia and Xander complement each other so well that you cannot help but
cheer on their relationship.
Rachel Bo creates a fabulous world in Long Tall Furry and it is a place I
want to visit again and again. Sinna and Goss are two phenomenally
developed characters, so strong on their own but unbelievable together. I
love how easy it was to suspend my disbelieve and just fall right into the
emotions of this story.
It is no secret that I love Dakota Cassidy, she writes with a charm and
humor that makes me feel like I'm witnessing a great chick flick or having
a fabulous conversation with a friend. In Chunkybuttfunky the heroine is a
curvy gal (my favorite) who is looking for something different. Cadence and
Collin have this fantastic chemistry and I love watching them dig
themselves farther and farther in to a mess by lying to one another.
Paranormal Mates Society is an enjoyable collection of witty reads that any
supernatural erotic fiction fan will enjoy.

Heather and Daniel have been friends for college, but nothing more. Heather
decides to take her dating life in hand and submits a personal ad, hoping
to find Mr. Right, or at least Mr. Take Home to Mom's. Daniel thinks he's
in love, but when he proposes to his girlfriend, he is shot down,
shattering his dreams. He agrees to help Heather with her family, but
as 'pretending' hits a little close to truth, both will have to decide if
they're ready to look for something more than friendship.
Wanted: A Boyfriend for Christmas, I love the title and the personal ad
element had some cute and telling moments for Heather. I felt like I've
read this storyline a few times. I adore stories where love was there the
whole time, but it was spoon-fed in this one. Still, a very sweet read with
a light Christian aspect. A nice, feel-good story for the holidays.

Luke and Mark are committed and hitting the hurtles that arise when lust
turns to love. Luke wants to be more to Mark and Mark wants Luke to be
happy. In their floundering the two must deal with Mark's past, namely his
family. With love in place, the rest of the relationship must cement, and
if Mark can't trust his lover, all the love in the world won't make either
of them happy.
I can honestly say I've never read anything like Dragon Fire. A gay, Jewish
dragon who has trouble shedding and has deep seeded trust issues? To say
Mark has a nicely complex personality is an understatement. My favorite
parts of this story were the main characters. Luke and Mark are great
characters who work well with and off of each other. It is erotic and harsh
at times, but Mark and Luke made it so I couldn't put Dragon Fire down.

Poppy's free spirit and crunchy ways leave her feeling like she's in the
wrong time at moments. A hippy at heart, she channels her simple ways into
her career as a baker. When Poppy meets Matthew she thinks he's cute and
the chemistry flairs, but they are completely different people. A soldier,
Matthew's lifestyle and beliefs are fundamentally different than Poppy's.
Explosive together, their lust has the potential to burn bright, but flair
out before love can come.
Overall Buttercream had some really interesting and engaging characters.
Some of the supporting staff have moments that hit harder than the leading
characters. Buttercream is definitely a hot story with a flair for making
sweets even sweeter. Without giving any spoilers, I really don't see these
two living happily ever after though, and that left me not too thrilled
with the ending. Readers looking for something sweet and sexy will really
enjoy parts of this story.
When Dillon gets another chance to win Charissa's heart he jumps at it. He
knows the attraction that they feel for each other is so much more than
fleeting but can he convince Charissa of that? Something has scared her off
and he intends to find out what it is and banish it forever.
Dillon and Charissa are a great couple. I loved Dillon right from the
start. He is not afraid to go after what he wants and right now that is
Charissa. Dillon will do anything to break down the walls Charissa has
erected around herself. Charissa is a sweet girl who found herself in a bad
relationship and is now afraid to try again. It was nice to see how much
Dillon really cares for Charissa; he fights till the end never giving up on
her or their love.
As hot as this book was it also has a nice romance to it. I enjoyed
watching Charissa wrestle with her emotions and her wants. The sex is hot
but you see the connection and the trust as well. I loved the scene where
Charissa finally gives Dillon her utmost trust. The emotions truly come
flying off the pages in that scene. The author does a wonderful job of
pulling the reader into their world.
Not only did I get to meet Dillon and Charissa but some secondary
characters made an impression as well. I hope we get to visit the ranch
again some time soon.
After signing up for a one-night stand through an exclusive matching
agency, hopeless romantic Marianne Caldwell is swept away to a medieval
land where she hopes to spend the night with a worthy man of honor. Unsure
of how she got from the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas to a castle in the
English countryside, Mare finds Robert, whose stunning physique and winning
smile immediately convince her he's the Robin Hood she's been seeking. But
despite his efforts in saving her from a corrupt sheriff, his Jersey Shore
accent and coarse ways unravel her romantic visions. With her fairytale
fantasies coming unhinged, Mare must decide if Robert is just a crass car
salesman from Brooklyn or the chivalrous knight she's looking for.
One Knight in Brooklyn is another fabulous erotic story in the 1Night Stand
series; it is a wonderful break from the everyday with a touch of fantasy.
I loved the play on our leading couple's names, Marianne and Robert. Their
interactions were entertaining as I love a little hostility between my hero
and heroine. Robert is a sexy alpha male who Marianne isn't too impressed
with initially but he eventually wins her over with his charm and brawn. I
myself have always had a soft spot for a handsome man with a Brooklyn
accent and Robert is a keeper. As a fan of the series I'm glad I chose to
read this one and I'm looking forward to reading many more.
For romance writer Jody Feather, love is wonderful--on the page. Her books are instant bestsellers and readers love her delectable hero, Jake Emerson. He's the kind of man who knows exactly how to please a woman. The kind of man who doesn't really exist. Or at least not for Jody--she's too busy writing about delicious heroes to find one of her own.
When a man shows up on her doorstep claiming to be Jake Emerson, Jody's hormones shoot sky high. This would-be hero is everything she imagined him to be, and when Jody takes him to her book signing, readers swoon. But Jake only has eyes--and compliments--for her. Before long, Jody stops doubting his story and starts doubting her sanity.
When Jake convinces her she is overdue for love, Jody begins to wonder--instead of just writing about adventures, has she conjured one?
Romancing The Hero is a sweet escape from everyday life. As a long-time fan of romance novels I have always wished for my favorite heroes to come to life and that is exactly what happens here. Jake is a fantastic leading man so make no wonder all the fans adore him at the conference. Jody's ex is a completely entertaining jerk, the kind of guy we all love to hate. I'm sorry to say I didn't really have a good connection with Jody, she seemed a little arrogant to me, however the story idea itself and the setting made it an enjoyable read and almost convinced me I was judging the heroine a little too harshly.
