I have found another new author that I really love and I"m soaking up all her books.
the problem is these girls that we love, they can't write fast enough.
Cyrus needs a housekeeper with benefits and Eleanor needs to earn some money to get out of the rule of her grandfather.
She's got some experience, but not enough and when she figures out what sex is all about, things really heat up.
You'll enjoy this interesting book by Gem Sivad.

Cyrus Burke is searching for a housekeeper who can take care of his sexual needs and doesn’t think Eleanor Lacey will suit because of her “morally upright” look. But he gives her a try when she promises him that she can do it.

“I was married for five years and I’m not unfamiliar with sexual congress.” Pragmatically she added,

What a cute little quickie!

PINCH OF NAUGHTY was an unexpected delight! I must have missed it in the blurb, but I wasn’t expecting a Historical Western Romance, but that is exactly what I got and I really enjoyed it.

Eleanor Lacey got shafted in the love department. So, when she is forced to flee her hometown in the wake of a scandal, she decides that hooking up with Cyrus Burke, the richest man in the state of Texas, is a good idea. Although she comes from a reputable fami

I really enjoy the writing of Gem Sivad and this book is no exception to the norm. The author always writes a wonderful satisfying erotic western romance. I admit she is an autobuy for me.

Eleanor Lacey, is one strong, fiesty, determined woman. She has been widowed after a loveless marriage and is determined to be independant and no longer allow any man to tell her how to live. Eleanor is determined to open a dessert shop, but to accomplish her goal, she desperately needs a job to fun

Deliciously Naughty!

I’ve read Western romances before but this one held an unexpected surprise with a more modern-minded woman and a more sensual-minded man. Put the two together in an arranged setting and the sparks fly. Here’s what I like the most: The woman was not a virgin (as is the case in most that I’ve read) and she willingly agreed to enter into a contract to take care of a man’s needs and actually goes through with it with hardly any trepidation. How often do you see that i

I was given this book as as part of a challenge and I am so happy to read a new author who knows how to add a little fun to a story.
This book is a mix of old school western meets saasy woman who wants to be independent. Just when you think that is all that it is there is more. It was a very quick read and I will lokk for more from this author!~!!

Rate it as 4 stars because it is HOT, I mean like HOT HOT If you read the description the hero wants a full time housekeeper even for night duty....so with a description like that...it should be HOT

Naughty but nice.

Leaving scandal behind in Connecticut, where the courts and the press ponder whether she's widowed or divorced, Eleanor Lacey flees to Texas to begin anew.  But, once she arrives in Texas, whether divorced or widowed, if she is to remain independent of her manipulative family, she needs money--fast. The local mercantile owner suggests that she earn her grubstake by cooking meals for the richest rancher in the state. So, Eleanor Alcott-Lacey, a former Hartford society matron,

2.5 stars. The beginning of the book jumps straight into things without much character backstory or development, which made me feel like I accidentally started reading several chapters into the storyline. While this was a quick, steamy read I just wish there was more of a real plot.

I received this book for free via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

3.5-4

Just a sweet, silly little romance. I enjoyed it, but don't think it's all that memorable.

I'm spoiled on Cara McKenna, whose books I love. The bar is high.
