Ok, I'm done! Not going to try and read anymore of this box set. I am a PNR/UF reader and well I just can't force myself to finish this box set. I am not sure why the publishers/authors decided to add a PNR in the mix? Maybe they wanted to introduce PNR to Contemporary readers.

I have only Read Liar Liar by J.A. Coffey, Dangerous Flames by Wendy Ely, A Decade for Darius by Dorothy Callahan, Still Hot for You by Diane Escalera & Spanish Nights by Valerie Twombly!

I was given an arc of this set for review. All in all, I really enjoyed this box set. Most of the stories included were full length novels, which is a steal! I've found several new (to me) authors that I will continue to follow, and some series that I can't wait to read more of. Here's the breakdown:

Liar, Liar by J. A. Coffey: Jess, a fraud examiner, goes undercover to try to prove that Lovelines, a popular upscale matchmaking service, is not holding up it's end of the money-back guarantee.

I've read one of the books in this set already: Resisting Destiny by Chanta Rand! Here is my review to give you a preview of what's in this box set!
This is another great short story in the Resisting Series. I just love those Sullivan men. Cayson and Destiny's story will have you laughing out loud and ready to jump on LaTreece ol' ratchet behind.....sorry, had a moment there.....These books are so good and well written it makes you want more. Sad to see that Cayson was the last of the Sullivan

My favorite part about boxed sets is not reading the blurbs ahead of time so every story is a surprise. With Shades Of Desire: 10 Sweet & Spicy Romances anthology, I discovered some “new to me” authors and got hours worth of reading fun.

Author Dorothy Callahan gets top marks for her second chance at love romance in A Decade for Darius. It was a beautiful story featuring interesting characters with a strong

Spanish Nights (A Jinn's Seduction #1) by Valerie Twombly - Author Valerie Twombly has done it again with this hot, magical, love story.
Kayla lost her muse and is having trouble getting her grove back for writing her books. It would be hard to feel like you're not able to do what you love to do anymore just because of one major change in your life. Taking a trip to Spain may just be the turning point in Kayla's life, plus she gets to go to a place that has been on her to do list for a while.

I really enjoyed the Spanish Nights novella. Writing a short story is an art form and not everyone has the same level of skill. The story was great. The characters were believable. The pace was good. I am often left feeling wanting after a short story. Not this time. Of course I'd love a follow-up! I want more from this world, not because the story was lacking, but because it wasn't. Get it. You won't regret it.

I'm giving this book a 5 star rating so far. I've read A Decade for Darius by Dorothy Callahan and loved it! It was so easy to lose myself in the book. It was hard to put the book down. I'll be reading more by Dorothy!

**Review is on Spanish Nights only by Valerie Twombly** Book provided by the author for an honest review

This book was steamy, sexy, raw with a side of chocolate dipped cherries on top! I finished reading this book in record time it was so damn juicy!

The story has two elements, a Jinn that lives on another world, and Makayla, a human that lives here on earth. Fate has brought them together by extreme circumstances. Who would have thought that they would ever meet if not for outlandish magical

Spanish Nights Review: I've been looking forward to reading this story, and it definitely did not disappoint. This book was so many things. It was a perfect little Spanish vacation. It was an escape from reality into a world of Jinn, power, sexiness, and a great, well-woven story. From the beginning of the story, Armand is a presence that demands respect. He might be using Cyndel for personal pleasure, but it is admirable that he will only marry for love and not to gain the power of uniting ...more

His Bedpost Queen by Lena Hart is a part of the amazing boxed set, Shades of Desire: 10 Sweet & Spicy Romances. We get to see David and Tena’s love blossom into something incredible that had been brewing since their childhood. Character Chemistry is on point as it always is in a Lena Hart masterpiece. Doesn’t True Love will always conqueror all? I do not do spoilers, so I will just say that this is a story that is a must read! Don't sleep on it. I'm about to dive into the other nine stories ...more

Although I'm one of the authors in the set, I am still a reader, and all the other stories are by authors I have never before read. I found them to be well thought-out, some gripping, some gritty. A couple are very sweet and a couple are hot, hot hot!

Whether you're the type of person who likes to sample stories for a bargain price, or a die-hard fan out to get your favorite author's new release, I think you'll be very pleased with your purchase.

Lots of twists for a light read

I would have preferred the ending to be a little more filled out. It seemed very abrupt to me , but overall I enjoyed the story.
