I was given an ARC for Sinful by RJ Lewis. It was a very hot read. I'm very disappointed that she had to condense her story because of her limited word count and I feel like I could have went on and on with it had there been more! We're instantly introduced to Krisa, and she's a house cleaner that's been rescued by her religious Aunt. Krisa's dark past is still unclear, but she feels obligated to live up to her Aunt's and Uncle's expectations of her. Immediately we know Krisa is feisty. It start ...more

I had the opportunity to read three of the twenty novellas in the Summer Fire boxed set - L. Wilder Summer Storm, Cat Miller Sun Burnt, and Joan Reeves Heat Lightning. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed each story. All books in the boxed set are novella length, about 100 pages and can be read fairly quickly but still give you the feeling of getting a complete story. I am also happy that it helped me find some new authors. I had previously read only one author out of the twenty but now have ...more

Twisty, twisty, twisty…

I’m beginning to become more comfortable when main characters, usually one or the other, are “bad”. I’ve learned that bad can mean so many things when the spectrum ranges from deepest black to palest grey. A character can be bad while doing good things and other times they can be good while doing bad things. I think this is the first book I’ve read that I would label almost every character, lead or oth

I received Teresa Gabelman’s Rodeo Romance advance copy to read and review.
5++++ stars
I never read straight romance novels they tend to be too sappy, boring,no paranormal action, little humor, any horror, or mystery then Teresa goes and blows my world with her story. I went into reading this feeling I would sort of like it because I really like Teresa’s writing style but straight up romance isn’t my thing. Darn it if she didn’t pull me into the rodeo world of Trisha and Jake. Trisha and her best

I got to read Summer Fire by Teresa Gableman and Trisha's best friend Cindy annoyed me the woman complained about everything it was like shut up already. Jake he was hot and well hot, "she was bent over, her sexy curved ass practically parallel to his hardening c***. “Damn." He's quite protective, "why did you get a restraining order against this guy?” Jake asked, his voice no longer friendly. “Did he hit you?” With that question, his voice became deadly." And he's possessive, "Jake had managed ...more

I received Rodeo Romance from Teresa Gabelman for an honest review. I loved loved this story!! Teresa steps out of her "normal" in a wonderfully entertaining way. Trisha and Jake (cowboy yum!) love is sweetly believable.
I hope she writes a story for Tim and Cindy because Cindy is a real hand full- she cracked me up and I wanted to punch her at the same time!

1) Gemini by Victoria Danann is the forth book in this box set. This box is the first book in a new series for Ms Danann. It is a step away from her paranormal series Black Swan Knights. This book does not have vampires, werewolves, witch’s or demons. However it does have a hot, sexy, gorgeous couple with a zest for life and each other. I loved this story line and did not stop reading until I came to the very last word in the book. I can’t wait for the next part of this new series. Victoria Dana ...more

1- "A Season In Gemini" -Victoria Danann

I received an ARC of Victoria Danann's contribution,"A Season In Gemini", to the Summer Fire boxed set for an honest review.
I have been an avid reader of Ms. Danann's paranormal romance series and when she decided to test the waters of romance with a motorcycle club influence, I was excited! I found myself reminiscing of summer romances in the past, where the weather was hot and the romance was even hotter. Stepping inside this book filled my head with not

This review is for Leslie Wilder's Summer Storm.


This novella kicks off what promises to be another fantastic MC series by the talented Leslie Wilder. We met Maverick through her Devil Chasers MC series, and this story kicks off a series about Maverick's MC, Satan's Fury.

Summer Storm is Kane "Guardrail" Blackwood, Satan Fury's VP, and Allison Parker's story. Allie, a child of the foster system and employee of the Department of Children's Services, dreams of a place where kids can con

A Season In Gemini Intro to Sons of Sanctuary by Victoria Danann - This story really shows both sides of the fence so to speak. One woman that comes from corporate money and one man that comes from dirty money who wants nothing to do with it. Garland is a woman who gets what she wants when she wants it until her father puts a halt to it and giving her an ultimatum. Brant is a man who gets what he wants but gets it honestly instead of following in his father's footsteps. When Garland and Brant co ...more

This review is specifically for Victoria Danann's A Season in Gemini. Reviews for other novels in this set to follow.

Ms. Danann hits a home run with her first at bat into contemporary romance. She has a way of drawing the reader into the story so you feel as if you are right there observing (or maybe even being part of) what is going on. Garland could be the poster girl for spoiled rich kid; Brant is just trying to live his life outside of his Dad's motorcycle club. When these two meet their liv

I have only read Victoria Dananns Book A Season in Gemini but WOW when I first heard that Victoria was going to try romance without paranormal I was kindof like ok well I don't really read that kind of stuff but boy did she blow me away! I decide since I love all her other book I should at least check it out and I believe that Two Princes might be one of my favorite story thus far and I can not wait to find out what happens next

I received a arc copy of Teresa Gabelman's Rodeo Romance for a honest review.

Gabelman is stepping totally out of her paranormal comfort zone with this contemporary romance, but she delivers.
Trisha Summers and her friend Cindy are off to a Dude Ranch for the summer but they're not strictly getting away for fun, they're getting away to give Trisha's ex time to get over the restraining order she put out on him for hitting her.
Trisha isn't looking for romance but she finds it in Jake McCabe cowboy,

I met Parker and Becca in Just For The Summer a book that I absolutely loved.
I had no idea they were more than a summer fling but wow they developed true deep feelings and they seem so happy and wanting a future together. They both have a secret they are keeping from the other adding a bit of mystery and not letting me put the book

This review is for Rodeo Romance by Teresa Gabelman.

Cindy thought she would get her friend Trisha out of town for a vacation after Trisha served her "ex" with a restraining order. They were going to a dude ranch although it wasn't what Cindy expected Trisha loved it. When Trisha met Jake, a handsome cowboy and owner of the rnach, there is something about him that Trisha wants to get to know more about.

Teresa Gabelman's Rodeo Romance was a great read. Though if you have read Teresa's books before she is stepping outside of the Paranormal genre. I enjoyed the book, Jake and Tim sexy cowboy brothers that run a dude ranch to help keep their ranch in the money. Trisha and her friend Cindy going to the ranch as Cindy's way of helping Trisha escape her ex-boyfriend after she files a restraining order on him.

I always get so excited when a new Danielle Jamie book pops up on my kindle as I love her work and she never disappoints.
In this short novella the friends from the Chasing Carolina series are on holidays again but this time the focus shifts to Becca and Parker.
It turns out that they were more than just a summer fling and have true feelings for each other and have been seeing each other over the year.
Both of them

While I have not had a chance to read all of the stories in this box set yet, I did get to enjoy Victoria Danann's A Season in Gemini.

A Season in Gemini is a break from Victoria Danann's trypical genre of PNR, but was just as well written as usual, with fantastic characters that leave you wanting more!

It is an introduction to her new Sons Of Sanctuary MC series. It is a great summer love story of Garland, a just graduated from college socialite from a well to do family and Brant, a small town me
My review of A Season in Gemini by Victoria Danann.
I just loved this. Driving to my Dad's house. I talked the whole 45 min drive about this book. My husband just kept grinning. He loves it when I get really excited about a new book.. It was a beautiful 80 degree day here. There were a ton of "Bikes" out. I noticed at one stop light. In my rear view mirror I saw a young women rubbing the abs of her biker man. I just had to smile!

Review of Danielle Jamie Tan Lines & Salty Kisses.

I'm totally running out of good things to say about Danielle's books. This is another hot sexy yet sweet and romantic novella that I finished in about 2 hours flat.

The prologue alone pulled me into this story and then I was hooked... What with two great connectable characters, hot sexy scenes and TWO huge life changing secrets this novella is a winner.

I love that Parker and Becca got their own story and I loved that we saw some familiar chara

I was lucky enough to read Rodeo Romance by the amazing Teresa Gabelman and I LOVED it! Trisha is brought to a dude ranch by her best friend Cindy ( who I loved but wanted to punch at the same time haha) after a bad breakup. So what better way to make her bestie feel better than hot cowboys right? There Trisha meets the hot,hunky,sweet cowboy Jake McCabe who can't understand why he wants to know so much about the city girl staying there. Sparks (and clothes ;-) ) fly when he asks her out to dinn ...more

Teresa Gableman's Short story Rodeo Romance, it was sweet and straight to the point. The friendship between Cindy and Trisha left me wanting to read more about their adventures on the ranch. I guess I feel that way because the romance between Jake and Trisha seemed a little rushed for me, but then again it was a short story. If it was given a whole novel treatment I probably would of felt their connection a little more. But none the less they were sweet. The connection I did get was between Cind ...more
