Jeanette agreed to an arranged marriage to save her family from poverty after they fled France to England. She was determined to honor her vows weather she wanted them or not. Until her brother overhears her new husband's disgusting plan for making sure she is with child by the end of the wedding night and rushes to tell her. In fear of being dishonored by her new husband, she runs. Lieutenant Treynor is attempting to help the poor french boy (Jean) when he asks for a job on the ship. He even takes the boy's lashes in his stead when he attempt to desert. He is not too happy when he finds out that the boy is actually a baron's new wife who has stowed away. At first he thinks to take her to the captain to be taken back to her husband but the evident fear of the man he ca see hiding under her masked bravado keeps him helping her hide. When he finds out what her husband has planned for her he knows he has to help her to get an annulment. That will require that he not touch her until this happens. A feat he is learning, will test every ounce of honor he posses. Between this and the awesome at sea ship attacks, this story had me enthralled. I simply did not put it down until I was through.

Allister is the perfect modern day Laird. trying so desperately to hang on to his families land even as "Accidents" are happening all around town. He is honorable and loves his people as he loves his own family. He meets Sasha in the worst possible time in his life. He is feeling like a failure and knows he will never have anything to give her. Especially if he loses the land his family has owned for hundreds of years. Sasha's life was a mess. She'd had an affair with her boss that ended with her being fired. She decides to take a last minute trip to Scotland to find a hot man in a kilt for a one night stand. Something she has never thought of before. Even her vacation turns out wrecked when she mistakenly books a seniors tour and ends up being babysat everyday by 80 year old men who see her as their granddaughter. Just when she'd given up on any romance, let alone the hot and steamy kind, the tour bus has an accident on the way to McTavish castle and clumsy Sasha falls off the bus into the arms of none other than the laird of the castle himself. She ends up in the middle of a land war of sorts that's leads her through all kinds of adventures with her sexy kilt wearing man. Now she has two problems. One, can she survive and two, will she be able to keep her plan of a one night stand or can she trust this one last time? (less)

It was short, sweet and to the point and I loved Charlotte and Alex's story. I guess I'm a sucker for stories about not knowing the one for you was right in front of you all along. It took me only 30 minutes to devour and I now feel much better because even with my limited free time, I was able to get that warm fuzzy feeling that only comes from stories about true love. I'll be reading the rest of this series for sure.(less)

I love all mythology so I may be a bit biased but as soon as I read that Azriella was in fact a princess who took on the job of one of the fates I'll admit, I was hooked and wanted to know more immediately. I mean, cool. A princess who could really just sit on her but who takes on one of the hardest and most demanding jobs in the known universe! My imagination promptly woke up and started going wild. I won't go into details cause I don't want to spoil it but I will tell you that I loved the story and all of it's dynamics from start to finish and could not stop turning the page for more. I loved that this story wasn't the same old thing redone a little differently and is in fact something unique. I will certainly be reading more of this author.(less)

It is rare these days to find a story that isn't just another variation of all the others in its genre. Breaking The Nexus is original and entertaining. Sha is my favorite kind of heroine. Even her name gives the impression of a strong independent woman who can kick the crap out of you and still somehow seem sassy and sweet while covered in blood. Conner is so my favorite type of hero. He's strong and brutish to everyone but "His" woman. Not nearly fearless but able to overcome his reservations should anyone threaten what is his. And The Nexus! Holy Crap! What an intricate and original story line. I kept thinking: Dang, I wish I thought of that. I will definitely be finishing this series.(less)

It was entertaining from page one. I constantly wanted to know exactly what Kade was hiding and when Sydney would figure it all out. Great combination of Paranormal and mystery with a healthy dose of some black magic just to keep you on your toes. I am excited to see what happens with Luca in the next installment(less)

It's short but packed to capacity with absolute craziness. The author paints the setting so well, I could almost hear the raging storm outside my own window and smell the sea as if I were standing in the ocean's spray. I could imagine the cold dark feeling of abandonment that permeated this near ghost town.To be frank, the entire story had me creeped out in the most delicious way. If you need a quick read that will get your heart rate up and your imagination stirring, you won't go wrong with this one.(less)
