A Medieval Encounter by Aubrey Wynne
I enjoyed this Merlinian tale. The story is so interesting, easy to follow, very vivid, and wonderfully written. I was transported right into the story. I could feel every breath, caress, flutter in my heart, and the warmth of love right along with the characters. I cannot wait for the continuation of this story! At the end, I exclaimed my happiness. You will fall in love with Rolf and Melissa and wish for their happiness and for Merlin’s curse to be broken.

Engaged to the local minister, Jacob Davis, in the town of Victory, Florida, Leah spends her spare time running "Soup's On," where she feeds and cares for the local homeless people in the area. When the church board votes to stop funding the charity, Leah's life is thrown into cha

I've only read "Behind the Altar" by P.C. Zick from this box set and must highly recommend it. It is a romance with excellently drawn characters and marvellous chemistry between them.
I was surprised to see that the author had chosen a church as the setting for her first romance novel, but given the strength of her other writing I gave the book a try. Surprisingly enough the setting worked very well.
Leah, our main character, runs a soup kitchen and is engaged to the minister. Her focus is to keep

The best part is it doesn't happen over night even though it is instant attraction for him.

A Medieval Encounter by Aubrey Wynne – Love the twist on Merlin. This story was exciting and fun to read. Melissa and Rolf make for a fun and loving couple. King Henry and Queen Eleanor are quite entertaining with Eleanor’s match making. Charles Whitburn is a malicious creepy Duke. Lord and Lady Garrick are interesting, especially Lady Garrick, she has a way of being annoying and motherly all at the same time.

I've only read conflicted on the 5th by Abbie St Claire.

Abbie St Claire brings a new light to romance novels. I really loved her ability to combine a light hearted romance with a soft BDSM twist. Ian and Chelsie face many of the same traumas that young relationships take. I would recommend this book to my friends. It's new, it's fresh and it was a great read! Can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

And they still have struggles ahead of them. I'm left wanting more of their story but I'm greedy. Awesome story and great characters.

Throwing aside such a precious gift is unthinkable and beyond cruel. Unfortunately, in life nothing is cut and dry when it comes to love and life.

This is my first book by Kelly Collins and when I started this book I just couldn't put it down anymore.
I really liked Mickey and how she gets a second chance at her life, and the best part is the sexy detective/cowboy who helped her through all this and rebuild her ranch.
I love the ranch and how you want it all works out in Mickey's life, especially with Kerrick, which is a guy who looks tough, but can't hide for

Fabulous read.

I have been lucky enough to receive an arc of Kelly's latest novel, and it was absolutely fabulous. Kelly Collins creates characters who maybe slightly flawed, but makes the readers care and fall in love with them.I loved the premise of the story, the characters - Mickey the feisty heroine trying to rebuild her life after being released from jail who still retains her belief in love, and Kerrick the unlucky in love hero.

I've only read Conflicted on 5th Avenue from Abbie St. Claire from this set so my review is as follows.
I really enjoyed the single father storyline! I loved the neighbors, to friends, to more... Chelsie and Ian were fun and had great chemistry. Great parents to both their boys and I loved the whole family dynamics but yet hotness of the story. This is the first time I've read this author but certainly not my last.

Wow I just loved this story. this story is both heart worming an some heartbreak. I loved all the twist of finding a new relationship. Finding love like you never knew before. Blending a family is not easy for the adults as well as the kids. It will take time to figure it all out. As soon as I was done with this book I had to start on book 2. I love feeling like I am right there in the story with them an feeling what they feel. Warning 18+
