Whoo, honey…take me out of the oven and stick a fork in me because I AM DONE!! Paratrooper in a Pear tree is not flame retardant let me tell you that. Honey this book was on fire!!! Mr. Captain Scrumptious (my pet name for Sergeant Major Lincoln…I’m calling dibs yall) and Destiny/Sara lit it up!

Together they took that storm and gave it a middle finger salute because in that cabin it was 100+ degrees and rising. I highly recommend you guy and ladies check this book out. I d

I think that this book is one of the worse I've ever read in my life. Bottom 10 definitely. OMG it was AWFUL. And the ironic thing is half of it was about a horrible romance author. Pot Kettle.

That took insta-love to the extremes. Talk of marriage hen they had known each other less than TWO days. She was in love with him after being physically in the same room after 3 or 4 days?

Then, worst of all, he called her "baby doll" or just baby. First, giving a nickname on day one, really?!? Like one o

Holy moly! This was a little tough to read, but overall not bad. At the start it was very confusing though. I couldn’t figure out what time frame this was taking place. Was I to assume that it was Christmas time from the title of this book and Lincoln singing Christmas carols? If this is so, why is Destiny so dumb? She is in ALASKA. In WINTER. Wearing SANDALS. And she is surprised by and unprepared for lots of, get this, SNOW. Her excuse?

I really enjoyed this book. Jianne Carlo is a new author to me and I will be adding her books to my TBR list.

A Paratrooper in a Pear Tree starts off fast and does not slow down. We are introduced to Destiny (aka Sara Parker) who is in Alaska to edit a book that needs help. As she looks out the window watching the weather turn nasty a paratrooper drops from the sky into a Pear tree in front of the cabin she is staying in. Destiny rescues the unconscious paratrooper (Lincoln) from the tree and "dr

I really enjoyed this book. Chemistry between Linc and Destiny was pretty hot. I was expecting the book, based on the synopsis, to really focus on the attraction and relationship between Linc and Destiny. So, I was pleasantly surprised when there was more to the story for both characters. The sex scenes were hot, which is always a plus. Although, I wouldn't have minded if some of those scenarios that Linc was imagining actually had gotten played out in the book.

The ending wrapped things up pret

"A Paratrooper In A Pear Tree" by Jianne Carlo was a 'hot' romantic read that once you got started you will be reading till the end to see where, how, when and who of it all this author will take the reader.

OMG, what a wonderful Christmas love story!

I've recently become a fan of Jianne Carlo's books and now have everything she's written. This is the first Hades Squad book, and in it, a paratrooper lands in a pear tree during a blizzard on a mountain in Denali park!

Wait till you meet Master parachutist Lincoln Chapman, the paratrooper in a pear tree. He's an alpha to the max hero who loves and sings opera! So incongruous and so sexy. I really wanted him under my tree.

Ha! I had to read a romantic, sexy book for a challenge. This one even has a plot that's good and sexy scenes to go along with it. Note: I finished it in a day.

I give it 3 and 1/2. The leading lady was a bit annoying, but I liked it enough to get the next book in the series to see if the author wrote a more likeable, to me, leading lady.

This was a hot read. I love Linc and Destiny. For some reason I think of the Rock when I imagine Linc =)

Love the references to all the 70's porn ;-)

A good story full of flaws.

The huge irony is Destiny is a book editor. The most messed up fact first appears on pages 2 and 3. I work for the Army at Ft. Bragg home of the 82nd Airborne! I am a daughter of a retired Navy sailor. A paratrooper hanging from a tree would not have blazing neon letters on his uniform saying he is a member of the 82nd. That isn't how their insignia is. Then Sinner is a Sargent w/ 16 yrs in the service, he must have gotten in a lot of trouble be that low ranking even t

I don't really believe in ripping apart a book I didn't like. I'll only explain my reasoning for my rating, and let you make up your own minds.

I was so looking forward to this book. I mean, come on, look at the cover...it’s practically lickable:)The main issue I had with this book is the fact that I didn't like the characters. That automatically makes it hard for me to enjoy any book. Linc was everything that I look for in an Alpha male. He was hot, smooth and incredibly protective. His banter w

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review.

The last thing Destiny Driven expected to see when she looked out the window of the remote Alaskan cabin was an unconscious man dangling from a parachute in her tree. Getting the big man down and dragging him into the cabin was no easy matter. But somehow she managed.

The last thing Lincoln Chapman, aka Sinner expected to see when he opened his eyes, was a smokin’ hot girl and with an abundance of sex toys scattered around.

I loved this story by Ms. Carlo. Linc known to his teammates is my new book boyfriend. He came, he saw, he conquered and I adored it! He saw in Destiny a woman that was keeping secrets and he was determined to uncover each and every one. He kept Destiny off balanced and I thoroughly enjoyed his methods. I loved how quickly he decided that Destiny was his future. Now he just needed to convince the skittish woman who grabbed his heart. I loved that Destiny didn't make it easy for him. It was ...more

I never quite knew what to make of this book! I picked it up as a free e-book because I love books based in Alaska, and Destiny rescuing paratrooper Linc from a pear tree before they get trapped together in a snowstorm sounded intriguing. sadly, not that much of the book took place in Alaska, and it could have been any city with snow as they never left the cabin. The romance started out OK and the chemistry was hot, but the insta-love and extreme reactions of the characters seemed quite ...more

Entertaining, sexy, and sprinkled with glitches

Sandals in Alaska in September? Pants and panties come in pairs. (A woman wears panties, not a panty.) The team names are practically cliched, but tolerable, although the author occasionally loses track of which she refers to. Some sentences and words are repeated. Most of the errors are nothing that a decent editor couldn't find and fix.

The plot is fairly thin, but that's not unexpected. The sex is explicit, which is expected. I have trouble accept

So this book was rather funny in hindsight. Yes, it can definitely be considered "mommy porn." There were times when I just had to skip ahead because I don't think real people have sex that many times or with that much gusto as the two main characters. Warning bells did go off in my head when I read that Destiny enjoys music from Nickelback and kept referring to extra virgin olive oil as EVOO, just like Rachel Ray (and she did mention Rachel Ray). I kept laughing at how much the author ...more

Loved it.

Loved it. Lincoln (Linc) Chapman an alpha male, Seal had parachuted into a pear tree and was injured. Destiny Driven (Sara) was a book editor and found him stuck in the tree. During a snowstorm she was able to cut him down and bring him into the cabin she was staying at. I enjoyed learning about Linc and his family and of course his Seal buddies. He wanted Destiny from the beginning. He had his work cut out for him Destiny had been hurt before and her background caused her not to trust.

This was a really good book! Destiny rescues Linc (Sinner) when he gets stuck in a tree in the middle of a blizzard. Linc thinks he has died when he sees Destiny. When he realizes what a strong woman Destiny is he knows he has to make her his. Destiny is leary of guys after her last boyfriend. Linc and Destiny both have stuff in their past that they aren't proud of and need to work through if they can think of a future together. There are some really HOT sex scenes!!

While strong heroines, exotic locations, and cultural differences are her forte, she goes weak in the knees for warriors of any type, rebels, SEAls, Vikings, and bad-ass mercenaries. Send her a man with an attitude and she’ll find the right woman to tame him.
