What a great collection of contemporary authors to come together for a great cause to support diabetes. Fourteen authors in all. I have read many of the titles all ready by Brenda Novak, Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy and Jane Porter.
A Baby of Her Own by Brenda Novak, takes you to Dundee Idaho, where Delaney wants a baby of her own, so she meets Connor one a one night stand, but does it turn out that way for them.

I bought the Sweet Life Boxed set, and this was one of the books included.

This book, to me, didn't seem well thought out. It was very confusing, and there were a lot of errors - grammatical and formatting - that really detracted from the story. It seemed to jump around a lot, and I didn't really get much of a romance vibe from the story. It's really more of a paranormal murder mystery than a romance. I guess, since the main characters are a couple on their honeymoon, that's the romantic element

Each year, Brenda Novak puts on an auction to raise money for Diabetes Research (BrendaNovak.auctionanything.com) This year, as part of her 10th anniversary of the auction, 14 authors have collaborated to created a special box set of amazing stories. Many of these authors are already on my "favorites list" and it is a great opportunity to sample the works from those I haven't read. In this collection are these works:

I only reading May Day!, but yeah, it was great to see these two again, and the mystery was really great! And it was in Scotland, which this series hasn't done, the Harrison Investigation had the one international book, but this is the first in the Krewe of Hunters!

A Sweet Life is the perfect mix of contemporary romances by some of the industry's best selling authors! I was familiar with several of the authors & had actually read a few of the stories before; however, I'm happy to say that there were plenty of new-to-stories to enjoy!

Shopping for a Billionaire by Julia Kent is where I decided to start. What a treat. I was laughing out loud while I read this romantic comedy about a Secret Shopper & her run-in with a billionaire. Shannon Jacoby is a

I originally thought about not purchasing this collection as I had already read some of the offerings. However, when I realized a purchase helped such a great cause, I was on board, and boy am I glad I purchased.
First of all, these are not “novellas”, these are full stories. And for the price? It can’t be beat. I have to say that I read and loved all of them.
Bella Andre – no matter what name she writes under, I always enjoy. I love the Sullivan saga and own all the ebooks. Great read.

Especially when I found out the proceeds from the sale of A Sweet Life are going to be donated to the Diabetes Research Institute via Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes Research.

Wow! What Can I say--14 Romances by some of the best writers around for only $2.99 and all proceeds benefit Diabetes Research. I would pay more than that for a single book by Julia Kent or Lauren Hawkeye or Bella Andre or you get the idea. I have not finished reading the whole set yet--1500 pages makes for a lot of reading--will update this review under each author's book as I finish.

The characterization is wonderful and so true to life, I want to know the rest of the family.

Southern Love...

This is the story of Darcy and Trent. Darcy has come to Magnolia Bay to begin a new life, sinking everything she has into turning the Mimosa House into a Bed and Breakfast, as her own business. She doesn't just want a B&B, she wants it to be the best in the area, with a style and grace all to itself. Whether or not this will happen is now in the Hands Of the Historical Preservation Society, which just so happens to be run by the "Bloom" sister's, local sister's who are not

I received an ARC for an honest review

I received this book in advance for a review of Julia Kent's Shopping for a Billionaire, let me start there. This book has me hooked. I'm not a fan of serials (series yes, serials NO) but like all of Ms. Kent's book I have to read the rest to find out how this ends. It's set in Boston just like her other stories. It has a curvy heroine, just like most of her stories. And great characters and wise cracks, just like her other stories. Really I want to find out

I have read several of the stories that are included in this boxed set. Brenda Novak's A Baby of her own is a great story from her Dundee, Idaho series. A 30 year old virgin is tired of waiting for mister right to have a baby so she travels to a bigger city and seduces a man. She is in fact pregnant and soon learns he is a new resident in Dundee and she will have to come clean about her deceit. Can he forgive her and do they have a shot at love?

After reading a couple of “heavy” books lately, I really needed something a bit lighter and happier - the timing was just perfect to get “A Sweet Life”.
I was a little intimidated by the amount of stories in this set; I’m one of those people that needs to finish one book before starting to the next, and my e-reader counts this as one whole book. So I set off to start the first story in the lineup: “I Only Have Eyes for You”. I ended up reading it in one night. Which meant I turned off the light

What a collection of great stories and by amazing authors. One of my favorite authors is Brenda Novak & when you purchase this collection, all proceeds go toward Diabetes Research.

Brenda Novak's done it again With the first story in her Dundee series! With an opening line of, "Artificial insemination. of course!" You get a sense of what Delaney Lawson is considering. She wants someone to love and someone who will love her...but hasn't met the right guy yet. What will she do? Will she find Mr

Oh how the mighty fall. Those that protest the most, fall the hardest. Adam is definitely one of those types of guys. I loved his big ego, because he was also a really great guy. Besides being a handsome and sexy Sullivan, he was also a smart, talented and sweet family man. I love how close this family is to each other. Kerry seemed like a straight-laced, all business type of woman at first, but I lived getting to know her better. She was fun and flirty, but she was also scared of losing those ...more

I am going to add reviews as I read things because this set is so long and there's no way I'm reading straight through.

On a Night Like This by Barbara Freethy, 2/5 stars

Firefighters! And I liked that part and also the unresolved dysfunctional relationship between Sara and her dad, but on the whole, I was mostly just bored while reading. Sometimes Freethy works great for me and sometimes she doesn't. Unfortunately, this was one of the latter times.
