From Thailand with Love
All Logan has to do is to get the gold and get the girl. Easy, right?
Travel photographer Winter Knowles and archeology professor Logan Spencer dislike each other at first sight. Stuck together into the wild, these two unwilling teammates will bicker and banter their way through a laugh-packed treasure hunt.
After years of se ...more
I can’t help not liking the man; he honestly gives me the creeps… he’s retained all his military bearing: buzz cut shorter at the sides, lean muscled body, and a hard face marked by a livid white slash. The ominous scar cuts from his left eyebrow to halfway down his cheek. And he probably enjoys frightening children with it in his spare time.
I try to resist, but quickly give in. Grabbing the ever-present camera dangling from my neck, I stealthily snap a few shots of my sweaty, mu ...more
To be honest, the chemistry between Winter and Logan was not convincing enough for me at the beginning, probably because of the amount of time both spent secretly ogling each other's body. Infatuation at first sight? Definitely. Not a ...more
Winter Knowles is an archeology professor and a travel photographer, out for an adventure of a life time. Enter Logan Spencer who is out to make a name for himself by using a new technology to find some long lost gold. Winter and Logan bumped heads right from the start and they definitely hate each other.
This is the fifth book in the First Comes Love Series by Camilla Isley. There ...more
Again, I have been getting really awesome contemporary romance novels from RaRa that I wouldn’t have even thought to look for if it wasn’t for this company, so thank you again so much for this opportunity. And again, ...more
This latest book was everything I could have wanted from a Camilla Isley story based on the title and a whole lot more besides.
It's a fabulous setting, twists I didn't see coming and it actually had my adrenaline pumping at points as I wondered how they would escape the situation they found themselves in.
I loved how ...more
I hate to give this author such a low rating - I like this series and have read all the books so far. They are usually a safe bet and exactly what you can expect from the genre – a nice, fluffy afternoon read. This one seemed to be no different (apart from being rather more action-packed) and, until about 60% and despite some reservations, I thought it was a real page-turner. And then it all went downhill pretty fast, spiralling into absurdity and lud ...more
There was humor, action, tension, romance... this story really had it all!
I loved how feisty Winter was, how she didn't take any nonsense from Logan. And Logan was my kind of brooding, gorgeous hero. And best of all, his sidekick and best friend was just as charming and will be the leading man in the next novel! I c ...more
I've read quite a few of Camilla Isley's novels now and she writes stories that you fall in love with and you instantly become friends with the characters and are silently cheering them on.
I loved this storyline in From Thailand With Love; we have one feisty, beautiful, talented lady wh ...more
It was actually hilarious the amount unfortunate events that continued piling up on Logan and Winter. For having a group of angry, gold smuggling, pissed off ex special forces officers shooting/chasing after you... Winter and Logan seemed pretty chill. The part where she starts to sunbathe... I’m sorry but how and why. Just galloping and laughing in the water while these psychotic soldiers ...more
I loved the cover for this book, it is lovely and really catches your eye!
I found this was a really easy story to read, the author set the pace and tone for the book brilliantly and I loved the setting. She really brought the story to life for me I was happy to relax and just let her take me away with the story - I could almost feel the sun as I was reading!
It did make me giggle at times when I was reading it as myself and my husband really didn’t like eac ...more
From Thailand With Love was so sooo nice and when I turned last page I wished there was more to read.
I've enjoyed to follow Winter, a travel photographer, and Logan, an archaeologist, in their adventure to discover an ancient city of gold in the Thai forest.
Our main characters hate each other on the spot but a difficult time in an old temple make them reconsider their positions and they call a truce.
You can always count on Camilla Isley for a cute and funny story and a pretty and colourful co
Now on to this one, first let me get it out of the away about how thrilled I am about Archie getting his own book! But the blurb for it was disconcerting because it sounded like a normal rom-com. I have to adjust my expectation after the intense, action filled book 'From Thailand, with love' turned out to be!
To be honest, I was skeptical when I read the blurb for this one last year but I was in for a goo ...more
I have read all of this series and have eagerly and impatiently waited for this one. I definitely have not been disappointed.
Fantastic plot ✅
Wonderful characters ✅
Amazing author ✅
This is a book which literally has it all. It has been utterly impossible to put down and I have devoured this in just a few hours.
This has been a gorgeou ...more
What I expected this to be: a fun rom-com with some exotic and dangerous journey through the jungle and a pair of witty main characters.
What I got: a slow and mostly boring journey through a not so exotic described jungle with a sexist man and a woman with child-like behavior.
Let’s start with Logan.
This book basically starts with a hot view of his ass, so we all know he’s physically perfect. Of course he is *eye roll*. But being physically beautiful ...more
I was quite looking forward to this book when I saw it was coming out, I really enjoyed the last book in the series, I was excited to get to know Winter a little better, and had high hopes that this would be just as entertaining.
I think in fact I was even more blown away by the action and adventure in this book, I mean with a description like that I was hoping for it but thought that maybe it would be a little bit mixed in with the romance. However I was very pleasantly surprised whe ...more
Logan Spencer is an archeology professor who is about to embark on what could potentially be the find of his career. Secrecy surrounds ...more
I may be showing my age, but for me, this was a bit like Romancing the Stone meets Indiana Jones. (Oi! I’m not that old.) Quick side note: FTwL is Book 5 in the First Comes Love series, but as I can confirm, it can easily be read as a standalone.
But let me tell you, Winter is no damsel in distr ...more
A story that could easily be a combination of National Treasure and Romancing the Stone, From Thailand with Love is an action packed adventure from the get go, taking its reader along for the ride while Logan and Winter not only try to figure out the wilds of the jungle, but their own jumbled, crazy mess of feelings for one another.
I appreciated the character development. Logan is a no nonsense professor, with the primary goal of finding th ...more
Camilla Isley novels are the ultimate in escapism, usually offering some exotic location or glamorous insight to a life beyond what most of us dream about. They are the perfect novels to loose yourself in for a few hours and I just love them.

I loved this book from chapter 1 and it definitely has the po ...more
One of the things that I love in a book is the writers ability to create real, believable characters. The banter between this pair was enjoyable to read. I ...more
Winter Knowles is a travel photographer. This time she is in Thailand with a group of archeologists searching out a lost golden city. The leader of the group Logan wasn’t the one to select her and it’s soon apparent why. He really really didn’t want a female in the group. Winter is more than capable much to his chagrin and finds out his reason for being rather misogynistic- he has been dumped by his girlfriend Tara and won’t allow anyo ...more
This book is part of a series however it can be read as a standalone!
Winter loves her job as a travel photographer so what could go wrong when she is asked to assist a team on an archeological dig to uncover the location of the legendary lost city of gold. The archeology professor is what's wrong. Logan and Winter dislike each other from the very start, however they have to work very close together if they want to get through this job successful ...more
Who doesn’t love an enemy to lover storyline? This one was full of everything you need to laugh out loud, gasp with surprise and nervously nibble your lip as you follow the ups and downs of Logan and Winter’s adventure.
I really enjoyed this latest offering from Camilla Isley; this series of fantastic romantic stories is one to catch up on but not needed as this is a perfect standalone book.
This is an adrenaline filled read that kept me on the edge of my sea ...more
She's a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading--duh!--cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies--popcorn, please. She's a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn't ...more
