0399170863.01._SY300__SCLZZZZZZZ_

Shelby Foxworth lost her husband. Then she lost her illusions …

The man who took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed.

Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning …

Wild Holiday Nights by Samantha Hunter, Meg Maguire, Debbie Rawlins – Review

Reviewed by Zara B.

Rating: ★★★★★

Wild Holiday Nights—a Harlequin Blaze 3-in-1 release—will leave you in the holiday spirit! Chocked full of romantic angst and holiday spirit, each novel will give you just a glimpse at what a magical time of year can do with a reluctant couple!

A perfect way to immerse myself into the upcoming holiday, I was excited to review this book. Two out of the three authors are on my automatic buy list, so I had high hopes…but even the one who isn’t gave me a wonderful, full story in just a few thousand words.

Beginning with Samantha Hunter’s Holiday Rush, we’re introduced into the choatic world of holiday weddings. Cake guru Calla Michaels is dealing with a crazed robber, an almost impossible deadline, and a bit of financial strain this holiday season…so the last thing she needs is her brother’s out-of-town partner Gideon Stone showing up to ‘watch’ over her. Especially since she’s not sure she’s gotten her lust for the man out of her system. And while Gideon has plans to protect Calla, he also can’t continue to fight the growing feelings between the two. In the end, Calla’s rushed schedule isn’t the only holiday ‘rush’ these two will share!

I enjoyed this story. I’m not a big fan of Ms. Hunters work, but this one was nice. I did feel like I should have known the people from Texas already (like from another story) but it held its own in this package.

Up next was Playing Games by Meg Maguire. With nasty weather grounding planes, Carrie Baxter and Daniel Barber are forced to share a rental car in order to get home. It must be fate! The two shoot sparks off each other from the beginning and we quickly learn they had an odd past as Daniel was Carrie’s high school boyfriend’s best friend. Only Carrie always thought Daniel told her ex something bad to break up with her but…did he?

I won’t say more. Well, other than you MUST read this story. I wanted more of it. I felt almost cheated because I so wanted a more in-depth look at these two and where they’ll be headed. It was that fabulous. The hero is brooding, sexy and so insecure in a good way. And while Carrie wasn’t fabulous, she fit him well. I’ll be watching for more of the unrequited love stories from Ms. Maguire because she does it so well!

Last in this work was All Night Long by Debbie Rawlins. Where overworked paralegal soon-to-be lawyer Carly Watts is forced to work Christmas in order to finish a deal with Jack Carrington. Only Jack’s waffling a bit. Can Carly convince him to stick with the deal?

This wasn’t my favorite out of the book. It wasn’t bad by any means. It also left some unresolved questions that gave me pause. Ultimately, though, the two find themselves exploring their relationship. It should work out nicely if he gives her a job so she’ll move closer…when she’s blamed for ruining the deal! But I’m not sure how it will work. Lovely writing, just felt like something was missing.

Overall, though, the middle story Playing Games made this a keeper on my shelf!

A Secret Design by Heather Reed

asecretdesign-lg

Life in Rock Valley is nothing like Paris, with its fashion shoots and runway shows, and that’s just how Angela Kensington wants it. Five years after she left to become a famous clothing designer, Angela can’t wait to come home and relax. She’s made enough money in Europe to buy her dream home near her family’s ranch and go into business with her sister. But her past catches up to her in the form of ranch foreman Marcus Leary.

Struggling to fulfill his grandfather’s last wish–to find his family’s buried treasure–Marc doesn’t have time to deal with this new-and-improved Angela, or his reawakened feelings for her. He’d once been strong enough to turn her away, but he’s not sure he’ll be able to do it a second time.

But they have to work together to find the legendary Leary treasure before a crazy cowhand beats them to it. And what they’ll discover between them is more precious than gold.

Misbehaving by Tiffany Reisz – Review

“…definitely be adding Ms. Reisz to my auto buy list!”

Reviewed by Cara M.

Rating: ★★★★★

Tiffany Reisz’ Misbehaving gives a whole new meaning to ‘reviewing’ sex books! Fresh and full of incredibly written romance as well as erotic behavior that is very fulfilling, this book is fabulous!

Popular sex blogger Beatriz is used to taking her pleasure when she wants it. She not only reads sexy books, she does the review based on experimentation. Only she’s headed to her best friend’s wedding and she has no idea who she’ll get to help her see if the book she’s reviewing works…until Ben—the same guy who turned down a naked Bea five years ago after his college graduation—offers himself up as her partner. Only Ben doesn’t want ‘no strings’ he wants forever. Will Bea give him a second chance?

I have to say I was skeptical if this book would be romantic enough for me or just a bunch of sex scenes…but oh, boy was I so wrong. Though short, it’s VERY well-written. The chemistry and romance is certainly there. Obviously the back-story gives you the fulfillment factor of a lost love found, but it’s the interaction of the two main characters that truly bring it all into focus. While a bit over the top, the heroine, Bea, is still interesting and yet vulnerable at the same time. She’s sophisticated and down to earth. Ben is her perfect match. I will definitely be adding Ms. Reisz to my auto buy list!
