Annie owns a secondhand book store but Tony can't grasp her willingness to absorb herself into a novel or unravels a mystery about the book that uncovers letters between long lost lovers.
Annie cannot deny that she is attracted to Tony, but once he speaks she has second thoughts. As the town gets involved in their unromance, everyone seems to notice there is something special there, except Annie and Tony. It isn't that the signs are not there, it is a matter of them understanding where they stand with one another.
I loved this story. I thought Annie was adventuress and her take on untangling a mystery is filled with humor and the possibility of a love that was lost. I thought this story was enchanting.(less)

Any normal girl would freak, but Mia knows all about shifters, she was raised by one.
As Alpha, werebear Ty knows he has to return the cub to his custodian, but Mia has no problem putting this alpha in place. Of course all it is doing it driving Ty crazy and his need to mate her is riding him hard. With politics swirling and a mate who is not she wants to be claimed, Ty has his hands full and he knows he will never be able to give up Mia now he has to convince her of that.
Very fun first book in the Grayslake series. Mia is a handful and Ty believes it is just destiny and the mating just needs to be completed, Mia believes it does not. I liked that the story delved into all the politic in shifter society. Look forward to more enchanting books in the series.(less)

Vampire Gage has tried everything he can think of to win the hand of fey princess Serena. He has requested her hand from her mother, but her mother is intent on marrying her off to a Prince, even though Serena wants to be with Gage.
As the wedding date comes close, Gage has to accept his heritage in order to have a chance at winning Serena. He plans to win her whether it is with blessings or not, one way or another Serena is his.
Exciting story. There are a couple extremely funny moments with Serena trying to thwart her future husbands advances. I thought this was a wonderful read, paced perfectly.(less)

Her ex has run her credit cards up as well as opened new ones causing the bank car companies to sue her. It is looking like her job is going to cut and she doesn't know what to do.
When she meets her boss, she denies he is her mate. She made wrong choices before and he has a daughter as well as a girl friend who treats the daughter like crap and he doesn't seem to notice it. However while Jade underestimates Quentin, he knows exactly what he wants and that is Jade.
This was an excellent treat. Quentin knows right off he has his hands full with Jade and he embraces it. The story sets up for the next in the series and it looks to be fantastic.(less)

When she nurses Thad Galloway she has no idea he is the man going into business with her sister and brother-in-law. He is arrogant, frustrating, and she can't help but be mildly attracted to him.
Thad plans to have Diamond, he is a Dom but he sees a side to her she has not recognized yet. However when he finds out Diamond is not only a shifter but his mate, he freaks and says a few things that he can't take back. Once he realizes that he made a huge mistake, he sets out to regain Diamond's trust, but will she take him back.
Entertaining read. Diamond is feisty and a good match for Thad. The only thing that struck me was her very easy acceptance to a lifestyle that was completely new to her.(less)

The mysterious woman is street savvy but there is a hint of something else too.
Julie "Alyssa" has been on the run since her mother planned something so heinous, she knew she was safer living on the streets than out in the open. Alyssa is a missing heiress and although she finds herself under the watchful care of Cain, she has her own agenda and his mixed signals are a disruption to what she finds most important.
I was mixed on this one, it was a little too quick with the sleeping with department and she was injured so I found it hard to grasp onto. I would retry this one I think again, it could be I was wiped out since I had read like 8 of the authors books in a row.(less)

CJ's father was the worst type of man in the world, abusive and toxic, when CJ returns home with a plan that her best friend has set in motion for her.
Of course nowhere did she expect to come up against Austin Force. The man is demanding, insulting, and seems to not be able to keep himself away from CJ. CJ doesn't realize that Austin is her mate or that he is an alpha and wolf shifter.
When Austin finally realizes he can't leave his mate, even though he didn't particularly want one, especially CJ who doesn't listen to anything he says, he decides he will keep her. Austin's way of declaring though leaves little to be desired and CJ is his perfect match in everyway possible despite Austin trying to corral her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Austin is a JERK especially when he informs CJ that not only is she his mate but that he plans to whelp her so she has something to do rather than be a truck driver. Look forward to next in series, this was a very fun read.(less)

When he is stopped from entry into his building by a stunning security guard, Kasey York he finds himself intrigued by the beauty who stands by the rules. Of course he had not realized that it would leave Kasey in a vulnerable position and Royce playing a part in her life.
Royce can't resist Kasey but he isn't ready for what one night together leads to. Royce reacts without thinking and realizes he has a long way to make amends for his attitude towards Kasey.
I wanted to smack Royce, he is a bit spoiled and quickly learns from his own family that he has wronged Kasey. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, I am always a sucker for stories that have an arrogant male and a feisty heroine. Great first read in series.(less)

Ryland had not expected to find his mate or that her temper flared quickly. When an attack happens and Bronwyn steps in saving his pack and family, any denial Ryland felt that about finding his mate goes out the window.
Now Ryland has to figure out what exactly Bronwyn is and how to keep her from running off. Bronwyn doesn't trust anyone, her hard life has never given her reason too, however with Ryland she is wondering if her instinct is right that he is her mate.
Loved this new book, a bit dark but action packed. Ryland goes from being an arrogant ass to protector and tender mate to Brownwyn. Anxious to read more in this series.(less)

He knows he needs to put in the time, but it doesn't help that he wants it to be immediate and get back to his team.
When Luke meets the team trainer Adella "Dell" Price he enjoys seeing that she takes no guff from the men. What starts as flirtatious banter quickly builds into a friendship and although there is a no fraternizing rule, but Luke and Dell wish it was a line they could cross. When Luke gets called back to his team, they get a chance to be with one another if only for once. Luke misses Dell though and although she is a single mom, Luke begins to wonder if she maybe the one.
I loved this story. It took the time to develop the friendship between Luke and Dell. Dell is a woman trying to prove herself in a mans world and Luke admires it for her. Luke is a charmer, he has swagger but he is falling hard for Dell and it is out of his comfort zone. Brenda Rothert is a guaranteed page turning read where you are swept away by the characters, story, and enjoy living in their moment.(less)

Blair Henson is the newly appointed Alpha and has an interview with Sapphire hoping she will join his firm.
First impressions are a killer though when Blair tries to boss her into being compliant, while Sapphire tells him to take a flying leap. Blair knows Sapphire is his mate, but he doesn't want one. As he inadequately tries to articulate his feelings he only ends up pissing her off more. Is it bad that it excites him? Probably should keep that opinion to himself, but when he realizes she is worth it everything changes. However for Sapphire she doesn't plan on being a doormat and Blair has something to prove before she will allow him in her bed again.
With a former Alpha trying to take her out and Blair fighting his mating extinct, Sapphire is a fun filled paranormal read. I am a sucker for a story where the hero/heroine get started on the wrong foot. There are a ton of sisters so should make for a good series. I look forward to reading more. I will say that a couple references say lioness, etc but it is my understanding they are wolf shifters.(less)

When she finds out that Steve McCoy owns a BDSM club named Eden's Gate, she decides to check it out. As a sub without a Dom, Kelly has been wanting to find another Dom to help ground her. Kelly can't help but wonder if Steve could be that person.
Steve would love nothing better than to have Kelly as his sub, but he has one hardfast rule, whoever he asks to be his sub it is temporary, one month only. Kelly willingly agrees, but in the process finds herself falling hard for Steve. As their relationship builds, Steve finds the ghost of his past coming back and Kelly in the crossfire.
I had not read the first two books which I think would help on a couple of the characters who are in the book. Definitely will go back and read them to catch up. As far as Steve and Kelly's story, it was fantastic. Both have had a tough life and issues to overcome. I thought Kelly was inspiring, she made the best of a situation out of her control. Look forward to reading more from this talented author.(less)

Find out what happens to Renee and Ethan, the couple that stated it all and their band of friends. If you have not picked up the first book, you need to prior to reading this one.
Written in email form, Renee goes through some big changes that you don't see coming. There were two big moments that left me surprised. I thought this was an excellent addition to the series. It is hard to describe what happens because as a reader you want to take that journey yourself. I will say Shelley is still one of my favorites, talk about a terrific sidekick character. Very fun read.(less)

With his tattoos, muscles, and indescribable good lucks Ryder is a goner. However having been burned badly she is sticking to her no dating rule.
Devin cannot believe that Ryder is the one who is hired to investigate an embezzler in the company he works for. He has not forgotten the one night they shared or the fact that despite his efforts to see her again she gave him the brush off. He got the message loud and clear, but when Ryder and Devin have to work together to catch the criminal. The chemistry between them is not simmering down, in fact the more time they spend together the more it ignites.
This was a fantastic read. Funny, seductive, and a great book for escaping for a few hours. Devin radiates charisma throughout and as much as he wants to keep Ryder at a distance, he just can't keep his eyes off of her. I liked that Ryder had a bit of a chip on her shoulder, she is a terrific heroine.(less)

Their initial meeting doesn't go over very well, but when Lauri puts aside her frustration with Drake and agrees everything changes.
Drake just wants the best for his daughter. As a widower who loved his wife, Drake has no intention of putting his heart out there again. Lauri though wakes every ounce of passion he has though and seeing her with his daughter has Drake wondering if he can have a second chance.
Fascinating story.. I thought the way the author was able to describe the communication between Jennifer and learning to sign was very visual. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I loved that Drake was a bit of a egotistical male and Lauri is so sweet, Lauri though has no problem putting him in his place.(less)

Now Camille is designing his families Mississippi plantation and Zack wants answers.
Zack wants to know why Camille left, she was what he believed his one but he never got the chance to explore if it was true. Zack can readily admit he is baiting Camille, she is frustrated but so is Zack. He wants her, but both Camille and Zack need to let their pride move aside and really see what is in front of them.
Entertaining read. The chemistry between Zack and Camille is highly entertaining. If you enjoy a story where the hero and heroine are to afraid to get to the heart of the matter, their feelings, but instead lash out and taunt, this is one for you.(less)

If it is dangerous, Sage is always game but she often feels she is betraying her adoptive family who know nothing of her adrenaline junkie stunts.
Quaid and Matt London have had their eye on Sage for awhile, now that their cousins Dale and Virgo have moved to town and their interest is equally sparked, they plan to woo Sage. However Sage doesn't seem to interested in a relationship, but the London's plan to break through those walls she has erected and show her they can be trusted. When Sage is hurt, the men close ranks and intend to keep her safe, handling her with care along the way.
There is a whole other part of the story that deals with women being abducted and Sage is a victim in the making. I really liked Virgo, with Matt a close second. Virgo is one of those silent but deadly types, but I think there is an attachment that only Sage and Virgo can relate to with one another. Another excellent chapter in the Pearl series.(less)
