Winter Wedding in Vegas
Single mom Taylor Anderson loathes playboys. So when she wakes up in Vegas to find Dr. Slade Sain, the hospital’s most notorious womanizer, in her hotel room, she’s horrified. And then she spots the ring on her finger!
Marriage was never in the cards for Slade. But now he finds himself married to the most gorgeous woman he’s ever laid eyes on. And when he meets her little girl, Gracie, his heart melts just a little further. Can a Christmas miracle turn this playboy extraordinaire into the perfect family man?
One Night Before Christmas
Sports physician Dr. Melanie Hyde is used to being treated as one of the guys—but just sometimes it would be nice to be treated like a woman…
So when hotshot orthopedic doctor Dalton Reynolds flies in to Niagara Falls, his brooding good looks ignite feelings Mel never even knew existed!
Dalton’s flight leaves in a few days, and yet after their short but steamy time together Mel knows that she’s already fallen for him. Can she melt Dalton’s heart and convince him to stay…just in time for Christmas?
Every so often I want a book I can enjoy on a chilly winter afternoon. You know, something to be read by the fire. Well, this book doesn’t disappoint. It was perfect for reading when the temperature dipped and actually, reading whenever. The characters in both books are engaging and the writing flows. I’m glad I got this book–both of them,
I loved both stories in this book. First thing, where can I find a Dr. Slade of my own? Janice Lynn has written a hero that’s both sexy and sinful, but a little flawed. I could see him well and wanted to find one of my own. Not kidding. Once I started Slade and Taylor’s story, I couldn’t put it down. The writing flowed and kept my attention well. I was a little sad when it was over. Ms. Lynn, if you revisit these characters, I’m on board to read all about them.
In One Night Before Christmas, I loved that the author included football. Now, I’m more of a stickler for having the sports play a bigger role in the book, if it’s a sports romance, but not in the case of this one. Susan Carlisle had the right amount of romance, sports and medicine in the book. I loved Dalton and Melanie. I totally could see them getting together from the first moment I met them and rooted for them. Like with Janice Lynn’s book, the story flowed well and kept me hooked. I know when I open a Susan Carlisle book, I will be entertained and I certainly was with this story.
If you’re looking for a pair of stories to warm a chilly night, then this twosome might be exactly what you want.
