This was a bit darker than Dixie Lynn Dwyer's normal books. I liked it though, it was refreshingly new. I hope she writes some books about the mafia characters who are introduced in the books....more

Of course she had not expected to end the night in jail or that GD would be the one bailing her out.
GD has made it known he wants Kitty Anne, but he wants her wearing his collar first and he plans to keep her forever. However Kitty Anne is too much woman for one man so GD has decided that he needs a third to help tame her and Nick Dickles is the perfect man for the job.
Nick thinks GD belongs in a loony bin, love at first sight and whatever other pretty words GD seems to filling the air with. The man is a cattleman for goodness sake and for reasons only known to GD, he thinks he has caught the love bug. After giving into meeting Kitty Anne, Nick can't wait to prove GD wrong, however Kitty Anne is a luscious woman and Nick falls hard for the sassy vixen.
The only problem in their plans for happily menage bliss is Kitty Anne's crazy mother and Kitty Anne's desire to have GD break his rules before she will put n his collar.
I was hoping for a Kitty Anne story, she is a hoot. Loved, loved, loved this one. Favorite so far in series. GD is adorable and he is an in visionary about how their lives play out but Kitty Anne is a bit of a wild card. Glad Nick is part of the story, I was intrigued with him in Rachel's story. I like how each book intertwines with the others. ...more

Matters only get more complicated when the twin brother of one of the men arrives to ber her personal bodyguard. Finding herself attracted to all three has her reeling, but fear of the man trying to kill her overshadows any hopes and desires she may have.
This was a reread for me, a very short short book. I wish it had been a bit longer and more setup to really get a sense of the characters.
Read previously under author name Becky Wilde....more

There is also his twin brother Dylan who always gets her hackles up and is as dirty as it comes, but she secretly love it. What none of the trio know is that Jacob is now single and all three are heading to the Cattleman Club for a week of ecstasy, well Jacob and Dylan are also investigating an arson for the Davis brothers. Once Dylan figures out Casey is a willing participant and looking for a week of ecstasy he decides immediately he is the only man who can satisfy her needs. Now he has to get his brother in tow and make sure Casey has no doubt who she belongs too.
I didn't like this one as much as the other four. I think the chemistry is there but there was not the chase that is in the other books. I was also a bit confused with Patton in it, I might have to go back and reread the first book to see how it comes full circle. The story was fun but more of a sexfest then anything....more

UnfortuHeather has one event she looks forward to every year. Her one week of uninhibited sex with her close friend GD, while her son is off at camp. Unfortunately this year GD already has plans. Heather doesn't realize that Konor has set it up, he is her secret crush but knows nothing would ever happen because of his cohort the Sheriff Alex.
Konor has watched Alex pine away for Heather for thirteen years and now he is taking matters into his own hand. He wants Heather, made a promise to Alex to not to go there but enough is enough. He has a plan in place to make Heather his and get Alex to forgive her. Little does Konor know that the blame Alex laid on Heather is not quite the truth and she wants her pound of flesh as well. What is Konor to do when his plan begins to crumble, Heather is a sensual minx who loves to make everything a challenge and Alex once he is on board is a bull in a crystal shop when it comes to Heather.
This was probably my favorite thus far in the series. Loved Heather who you did not quite know too well in previous three books. Alex was a bit of a surprise because he is a bit goofy and Konor is just trying to smooth the waters. Can't wait to read next book. ...more

When she gets transplantRebecca Twynham did not believe the stories about things that go bump in the night, aliens maybe, but everything else no way. When she gets transplanted into a place she doesn't recognize and into the arms of a handsome man, she knows something is about to shift.

When the truth comes out about a few different things, their triad will be questioned and they will need to decide if they can forgive one another.
This was filled with humor and had a slightly different storyline I have not read in Celia Kyle's books before. Read it in one setting, as usual another wonderful read from Celia Kyle....more
Caroline Lewis never thought she would get hurt again, but letting biker Mason Butler into her place did just that. On the run with her loyal dog, CarCaroline Lewis never thought she would get hurt again, but letting biker Mason Butler into her place did just that. On the run with her loyal dog, Caroline finds her hunkered down in a place that is surrounded with women in similar situations. But when Mason comes back into her life vowing to protect her, she knows he has won her heart and soul.
A continuation from Long Way Down. I thought this was an intense follow up. It does have a swinger type thing that just doesn't appeal to me. I find that if you are so in love why do you need outside sex. Otherwise story good, just could have lived without the field play....more

She wasn't expecting to find herself trusting SWAT team members Miles and Nikko, but her heart is telling her to give them a chance. Can she leave her fears behind in hopes for a future.
This one was a bit rushed. I liked the basis of it though and would have liked to see how it all played out in the future....more

Making a rash decision, Arabella steps in but it puts Arabella in the path of a man who has been watching her for awhile and he has no qualms about taking what he wants.
Now on the run for three years with her sister and ailing mother, Arabella is trying to get enough money to move to the next town. She doesn't expect a town like Pearl who take in women who have troubled times. Four men have taken an interest in wanting to protect her, but Arabella doesn't trust easily and is not sure she can turn her heart over to Smith, Reno, Rex, and Brock.
This was pretty good, definitely has a formula to the stories. Arabella was a one woman show and I think was the leader in the family. All the men were intriguing, my favorite was Brock. ...more
Cora is a survivor, but she doesn't see herself that way. She sees herself as weak and is struggling with trying to be a good role model for her two yCora is a survivor, but she doesn't see herself that way. She sees herself as weak and is struggling with trying to be a good role model for her two young children. When her sister makes a comment, not intending to hurt Cora, Cora decides to get a backbone and apply for a job as personal assistant for a security company.
Enter into the story bosses Beau, Cason, Blade, and twins Asher and Avery. Blade has been spurned before by a woman he loved and never wants to go down that road again. Beau is a troubled former soldier recovering, but he sees something in Cora reminds him of himself. Cason is instantly smitten and is patient with Cora, and Asher and Avery have a reputation with the ladies as love them and leave them but with Cora they find they want only to be with her.
Good story, I felt for Cora who is walking a fine line between her new life and ghosts of her old. Was an emotional read as you get to know all the characters, Blade was the most bitter because of his past but there is a longing there for Cora. Another good read from Dixie Lynn Dwyer....more

When Kurt, Marcus, and Blaez are called in on a new case they are ready to jump into action. Kurt knew he would be meeting his mate soon, the dreams he had set the path to his future. He had not expected it to be someone he had met briefly before. Suzette is everything his mate should encompass but he never expected to have to share, especially with Marcus and Blaez. With the threat setting it's sights on Suzette, all three men have to keep her safe and mated to keep her by their side.
I would have liked to see how the ending played out a bit more, everything was resolved but I could of used a few more pages of seeing this couple pave their way. I liked Suzette and found her to be perfect for all three men. Good book....more

When she found out he was cheating oBelieving she had met the man of her dreams, Nina Valone gave herself to him with the hope of happily ever after. When she found out he was cheating on her, she tried to reason with him and leave, but it turned out to be a brutal fight and Nina left on the run with no ID or friends to reach out to. Finding herself in Treasure Town Nina is building a life for herself backing pies and hoping to begin her business.
An arsonist is creating havoc in Treasure Town and brothers Trent, Buddy and Johnny are cleaning up the mess. When Nina comes into their lives, they think they have finally found what they have been looking for, but Nina is fearful they will get to close and find out who she really is.
This one was okay, not my favorite in the series. I had a slight issue with Nina being 24 and so naive, she was a bit of a contradiction. Trent doesn't trust Nina from the get go, believing she is hiding something but once he realizes what he sets out trying to prove he is trustworthy. I think overall a good concept but a bit rushed, will reread again in awhile and may change my mind on the story....more

The mating musk is in full bloom, but Sara is struggling with her life being defined by her career and what it means if she goes ahead with mating the two men who are quickly becoming important to her.
So far best in series. I liked Sara she was very direct and both Tony and Chase are allowing her the time, even though it is hurting them, to make her own choices. She is a bit of a hellcat but at the same time she is sweet and in need of a good cuddle. Hope there is more to come....more
With little choice left, out of work Simone Angel stumbles across a job as a live in cook and housekeeper on a ranch with three bachelor cowboys. LittWith little choice left, out of work Simone Angel stumbles across a job as a live in cook and housekeeper on a ranch with three bachelor cowboys. Little did she know after accepting the job that the Triple R Ranch housed three of the handsomest men she will ever meet, Samson, Connor, and Griffith. Fighting her attraction is one thing but when she realizes they want more from her than just work, she needs to decide if she is going to follow her heart or retreat.
I had read this before under Becky Wilde. Overall I liked the concept of the story but there were a couple of things that had me scratching my head. The three men in the story are vocal but not necessarily about their feelings toward Simone in the beginning and she is left to let her mind wander and second guess her feelings as well as theirs. I will read more in series for sure as the story had its moments where you were completely pulled in....more

Traveling to South Dakota to stay with her aunt and uncle, she doesn't expect to be romanced or even fall in love.
Beck Colley and Gavin Melwyn have always hoped to find a woman they can share, seeing Heather they are beginning to believe their dreams may come true. However Heather is not sure if she is staying or if she is going and with the opportunity for a new experimental surgery offers a possibility to regain her old life, Heather is met with a difficult choice. Adding to her indecision is the fact that her accident was not accidental and someone wants Heather out of the picture.
I was mixed on this one, Heather was a bit aloof and she went back and forth holding the possibility she was going to leave a little long. I probably will reread and change my perspective, but initially I wanted a bit more....more
