3 - "I hate to come and run, but..." Stars.

I am a big fan of Robin Covington, having recently discovered her work last year. And although I enjoyed Her Secret Lover it didn’t quite meet the expectations I have of this author.

”After you’ve shared a sex toy, you have to be on a first-name basis.”

The banter between Kelsey and Micah was pretty good, but I struggled to feel invested in the story for a large part of the book, the connection between them for me was as little weak, but what really grate

Friends - Can I tell you a secret? I've never been to Las Vegas! So, when Entangled asked to write a story set there. . . I got to work on the research. I talked to people who grew up there and weren't in the business on the "the Strip" and folks who worked in the casinos and hotels. But the thing that struck me when I talked to them was how anything goes in Las Vegas. . . so I went with it and had so much adding in kooky businesses and people. The sky was the limit.

This is the story of Kelsey and Micah. I really liked this book! The story was nice and the plot was moving fast. The writing was direct and pleasant. The book was written by a dual POV but it wasn't indicated in the beginning of each chapter whose POV and I got lost a couple of times.

Kelsey is amazing! She works in Vegas and knows everything about it! She has a passion for her job and t

An adorable sweet romance!!!!! I have read a few books from Robin Covington and I must say that Her Secret Lover hits the spot if you are looking for a light, quick, sexy romantic read. Ms. Covington has me smitten with this budding romance of a hotel concierge assistant and a NYT Bestselling romance author.

Every once in a while you run across an author who really has the knack for telling a story. From the very first page of this new release that I was able to review I knew that it was going to be a book that I would remember for a long time.

This is the first book I've read by this particular author but it certainly is not going to be the last. Robin Covington has crafted an amazing story that is smokin hot with characters that you just absolutely fall for. I can't really express what it is about

Kelsie and Micah met in the city of sin and got themselves a little piece of forbidden lovin. The book was good and I love the author but I've gotta say that this is not one of my favorites. Can't pinpoint exactly what it is but something was missing for me. It felt too much like they had just a physical connection more than anything emotional.

Robin Covington brings her reader a light sexy romance with a very likeable couple. Down-to-earth, introverted, successful romance author Micah Holmes has a following who be can somewhat overbearing and has him on a bit of a pedestal--a romance reader's convention is the last place he wants to be. Kelsey Kyle's job as hotel concierge is to keep her guests happy, whilst sticking to the no-fraternising policy. A huge fan herself, she's ever the professional but the chemistry between this couple is ...more

I really enjoyed Her Secret Lover, it was sweet, fun and very entertaining read.

Loved both Kelsey and Micah, they were likable and well developed characters. They had amazing chemistry and their sexy times were HOT! *fans self*
The drama towards the end was handled well and I was very happy how it was resolved.

Kelsey Kyle is young and ambitious...she’s busy climbing the ranks at the Vegas hotel/casino she’s working at and is “this close” to securing a spot in the highly competitive management trainee program. All she needs to do to earn one of the hotel’s VIP customer’s recommendation is to arrange a one-on-one fan experience between the VIP’s wife and best-selling author Micah Holmes. Should be easy, since Kelsey’s been assigned as Micah’s personal concierge this week, right? Uh, wrong.

The more I read author Robin Covington the more I love her work and Her Secret Lover was simply fantastic. A smart, witty and ambitious woman, a man who is every bit as swoon worth as the heroes he writes and a connection they both try to ignore but cannot made this one engaging and extremely sexy love stories.

I love a strong heroine and Kelsey Kyle defines that word; she loves her job as a concerige and has ambitions of going into the manage

Loved it!! A great addition to the What Happens in Vegas series of books. This one is quick, fun, and so damn hot! Micah is shy, reserved, and the most sought after author at the romance convention. Pretty funny since he doesn't believe in romance anymore. The last thing he wants to do is spend more time then he has to with the conventioneers. With Kelsey, his personal concierge, by his side though things are a bit more calm and bearable. Too bad she has that strictly professional vibe going on. ...more
“Sensual, erotic, lustful, emotional, Her Secret Lover was a delight to my senses. The characters enthralled me, the storyline engaged me, the love story entranced me. Ms Covington you have done it again.

As is sometimes the case with me, I jump right into a book not realizing, till I am hooked, that it is halfway through a series. Even though this is #11 is the series, they are all standalone and are written by different authors.

HER SECRET LOVER is one reason why Ms. Covington's books are such a delight to read. An embarrassing but funny first meeting, strong characters who mesh from the get-go and the perfect balance of sweet and steamy are just some of what I enjoyed about this book.

This is a page turner. The best contemporary romance novel I've read this year. Kelsey and Micah have undeniable chemistry and I loved their characters. This is a love story of a famous romance writer and his concierge during his stay at a hotel in Vegas. Both are wary of the opposite sex but decided to take a chance on each other, not a good idea considering how busy Micah is with his book and how Kelsey can lose her job if their affair becomes known at the hotel. Her carrier will be in danger. ...more

Kelsey took the biggest gamble in Vegas and lost it all. Micah tried his luck and rolled snake eyes.

That is how you can describe the budding relationship of the concierge and NY Times Bestselling Romance writer. Lust at first, Hi. The eyes of the snake tried and temporarily succeeded to ruin it all. It took one request for the truth to be revealed and the hunt for a jackpot to get underway. Use what you write about to win the girl like your heroes, Micah. Oh, and do it with flare in the middle

Instant attraction but Kelsey doesn't blur the lines and follows the rules when it comes to no fraternizing with the guests.
