Intriguing heroine and an unusual romance!

In The Last Resort, Ember Leigh has created one of the more intriguing romantic heroines I’ve ever read. Rose is the very opposite of the ‘girly girl’; the former Marine is now a baby bounty hunter, employed by desperate parents to reclaim their children when the legal system fails to enforce court mandated custody. An expert in jiujitsu, Rose is in her element beating up bad guys but completely lost when it comes to matters of the heart. Getting strande

The last resort by Ember Leigh.
Rose is a bounty hunter. She rescues babies who have been taken from their mothers without their consent. Wes and garrett are doing up a hotel when they crash into Rose's car. What happens next?
A fantastic read with great characters. I really enjoyed this book. Wasn't sure on wes. Didn't trust him. I loved how Garrett and rose were. I loved the ending too. 5*.

Characters

The two main characters are Rose and Garrett. Rose is the baby bounty hunter who has walls around her heart and the wish for a normal but not entirely normal life. She doesn't want kids. Ironic since she saves babies but that complication is from her past. No spoilers - you'll have to read it. Enter Garrett: Handsome, hotel renovator, and can nail fancy dives (former swimmer with the bod to prove it). There is really only one supporting character and that is Wesley 'Wes' who is Garrett

Rose Delany, a baby bounty hunter, gets caught in a massive snowstorm while out on assignment. She and the baby are picked up by a pair of brothers, Garrett and Wesley, who are working to renovate an isolated Pennsylvania hotel. Almost immediately, sparks fly between Rose and Garrett. Their budding relationship is not without obstacles. Rose must pretend to be the baby’s mother in order to keep her profession a secret, and as long as Garrett believes her to be a simple single mother, it seems ro ...more

This is a new to me author. I enjoyed this book, I found it easy to read, the characters Rose and Garrett enjoyable. I liked that Rose was a bounty hunter and not your typical one at that. Her bounty hunting consist of diapers and formula, baby bounty hunters walk a gray line she’s within the law and just outside it. Rose finds herself stranded in a snow storm with her charge Emmy, just when Rose doesn’t think things could get worse, they get rear-ended. Rose has no choice but to except the help ...more

The Last Resort had me hooked from the first few pages. A snowstorm has Rose stranded in the middle of the road. To make matters worse she has to take care of baby Emmy, who she is supposed to hand back to her mother, without letting the Galo brothers know who she really is – she's a kick ass baby bounty hunter. Now she finds herself in a rundown hotel, being renovated by Wesley and his sinfully hot younger brother, Garrett. Being stuck in a snow storm in the middle of nowhere starts to become m ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. so different from what I normally read. This is a new Author to me, I have just finished another book by the same Author and went on to find this book. There was no over rated sex scenes which keep popping up all over novels. The love was instant and the scenes were enjoyable and not repetitive. I recommend Ember leigh and look forward to reading more.

This is an entertaining read with plenty of fun, suspense and steam. I like the characters as well as the story. Rose is a baby bounty hunter and after rescuing baby Emmy she gets stranded in a snowstorm with Garrett at a hotel that happens to be under renovations and he is part of the crew. Garrett and Rose have great chemistry and the story held my interest throughout. I really liked it.

This is a voluntary review and I do not get paid for this review.

Loved the unique story in this and the part where she messes with one of the brother's minds was funny.

The Last Resort is a blend of romantic suspense with humor and an unusual heroine. Thanks to NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press for the advance copy.

I received a copy of this book as a gift in a raffle. I am so glad I won!
The Last Resort is full of humor and steamy romance. I loved how Rose isn't your average heroine. My goodness, she's a bounty hunter who specializes in retrieving children from the wrong people! I couldn't help but fall in love with Emmy, the baby. There are several LOL moments, such as Emmy constantly putting everything into her mouth, which if you have kids, you know how this goes! And poor Rose, who doesn't have children

Clever title and original concept!
This is my first book by this author but I’ve already started reading her “New York Minute.” Great stuff! And what an original concept. I loved all the characters and rooted for the romance between Rose and Garrett from chapter one. Great pace and superb writing. Highly recommended!

A child bounty hunter—she kidnaps kids that were abducted by parents who didn’t have custody, so she’s a good guy—gets stuck in a snowstorm after her latest mission and, after being crashed into, is rescued by a couple of brothers who are renovating a hotel, along with about twenty construction workers. Love ensues between her and one of the brothers.
She’s an ex-Marine with abandonment issues. Not a typical heroine. (BTW, I was a Marine and I don’t worry about that “always a Marine” nonsense.) H

Rose is not your typical book heroine. She's a former Marine who is now a Bounty Hunter. But she's not just any Bounty Hunter. She rescues children who have been abducted by their non custodial parent. Needless to say she needs to use discretion in doing this. As she rescues baby Emmy she is stranded in a snowstorm at a resort. This resort however, is under construction by the Garrett Galo. In order to hide baby Emmy's identity, she pretends to be her mother. Garret is not only taken in by Rose ...more

I wouldn't really call this an erotic romance. There's definitely heat but not much of it. This story was ok. At times it seemed far fetched and the heroine's actions didn't really line up with who she was made out to be as a character. If you're looking for a simple romance, you will enjoy this. If you're looking for romance with a little more and an in depth plot, you'll be disappointed. This can go either way.
