He’s inherited a greedy, slobbery dog that seems hell-bent on shedding hair and chewing up every goddamn stick of furniture in his penthouse apartment.

As Josh and Tessa begin their workouts, their lust for each other blossoms. But with the wedding looming, Tessa still has a lot to achieve, and Josh continues to be at loggerheads with the dog.

Their summer turns out to be one surprise after another…but can they turn it into a summer of love?

Never get between a wolf and his mate…

Billionaire. Casino owner. Tall, dark and deadly. Cristaldo Luceres is a potent force and a dangerous wolf to cross. Head of the House of Luceres, he’s used to fighting—literally—off any threat from rival houses. Wealth and women are his, but the one thing missing from his life is his mate.

Cristaldo’s on full alert when trouble comes to town in the beautiful shape of one Miss Everly Affini. The talented musician won a shot to play at the coveted Nero’s in Cristaldo’s Glittering Palace… and she could be the one, Cristaldo’s Forever Mate.

One problem is that she doesn’t think so—and isn’t shy about telling him—and another is that Rocco, an enforcer for the House of Ribelle, the Luceres’ sworn enemies, thinks she’s destined for him. Oh, and it’s the most powerful Super Blood Wolf Moon of the century, meaning chaos is unleashed.

Once Cristaldo has a scent of his Forever Mate, he’ll fight for her…to the death if necessary. Everly doesn’t stand a chance.

A girl band gets a chance of a lifetime by winning a contest to play at one of the most prestigious casinos: The Glitter owned by the two Alpha werewolves Cristaldo Luceres and his twin brother Lucian. Cristaldo’s wolf is restless and bored, so when he is told that the band, The Sirens, had arrived and set up, he knew he needed a distraction.

Everly Affini and her two band mates: CleoAshton and LaylaBello are riding on a high after their rehearsal. When Cristaldo comes to check that everything is ready for them, Everly’s body reacts in a way that surprises her. She can feel the lust, dominance, and utter power radiating off of him and, instead of making her nervous, it turns her on like nothing else has.

The story, told in both Cristaldo’s and Everly’s points of view, is intense in a sexual way. This is also in a time for momentous occasions. The blood Moon which happens rarely, creates a time for werewolves which intensifies every emotion and action of their daily lives. Each wolf finds it hard to control their basic instincts and as Cristaldo is an Alpha werewolf of a strong pack it is worse than normal. Then you throw in the fact that he finds his true mate in Everly and his world is not only turned around it’s turned inside out. Poor Everly has no idea of what is going on with her as she notices that her hearing and body felt different. Then there is that extreme attraction between them. One look and they can’t keep their hands, or lips off each other.

Cristaldo is extremely dominant, loyal to a fault to his pack making sure they wanted for nothing. and would do anything to keep the world from finding out about werewolves. He is protective, possessive, and absolutely confused at her refusal to give into the pull of lust, and attraction toward him. He is not all badass, there is a sweetness buried deep inside and only Everly, and his brothers, see it.

Everly is a woman who knows what she wants, and her whole life is wrapped up in drumming for her band and trying to make it big. She is hoping to help her family in Canada financially. She doesn’t have a great track record with men and the last one she dated, she ended up having to get a restraining order on him. She is a strong woman and doesn’t allow Cristaldo to boss her around.

There are a few things that I had some trouble with. One is Cristaldo’s sexual drive and how he only thinks about getting her into his bed. There is not even a hint of romance. I thought she was a lot stronger character to keep from falling into his arms with only a token fight. I thought the main conflict in the story was resolved a little too easily.

This is an incredibly hot, story full of sex and secrets. The characters are fun and well developed with their own desires but were being pulled in two directions. Their instincts ruled their bodies and I wondered what they would be like as a couple without the Blood Moon controlling them. If you like hot possessive sexy werewolf men who will do anything to get and protect his mate, then would be a wonderful book for you.

Veronica’s new job comes with a darling little boy, a Gothic castle and…a beast?

When recently laid-off Francophile Veronica Carson is recommended for an au pair job by the elegant leader of her French conversation group, she isn’t sure what to expect—but a Gothic castle deep in the wilds of Maine is certainly not it. Still, she’s drawn in by her joyful little charge, Jean-Philippe, and even more drawn to his brooding father.

Ruthlessly successful businessman Alain Reynard has loved before and has no wish to repeat the painful experience. The tragedy of his recent past is still fresh in his mind, and he wants nothing to do with his son’s lovely new au pair. Despite his best efforts, though, he can’t seem to get her off his mind.
Many products female viagra for fixing erectile dysfunction are available on the market to treat the sexual disorder. This is cialis sale where we can see metabolism as a “harmonizer” of two disparate functions. This herb order levitra is one of the most highly recommended ED cures. A man, who buy cialis from canada often experiences penile problem, including erectile dysfunction, can be helped.
A passionate romance begins to blossom but is put to the test when painful reminders of Alain’s past return. As ugly rumors swirl, the truths of the past and the present collide. Veronica must decide if Alain really is a beast and, if so, whether she can love him enough to break through the dark memories and secrets that tether him to what once was.

Veronica Carson is a young woman who was laid off from her former job. Yet with a referral from an older lady in her French circle, she’s lucky enough to be offered an au pair job to a sweet young boy and his rather formidable, rich father who has many secrets in his background. This may be a plot that has been used many times over, but I like the way the author has developed such wonderful characters and how just one person can change the life of many just by being herself.

I love the character of Veronica who is well developed with an extremely open personality and a warmth that envelops all around her. Watching her with her charge, Jean-Philippe, warmed my heart. I had to laugh at his exuberance and energy, he is interested in learning anything and everything she can teach him with open curiosity and sweetness. She is a perfect fit for him, loving to have all the adventures he could wish, and I have no idea how she keeps up with him. Just reading about it makes me exhausted.

Alain is a remarkably interesting character that has so many secrets and distrust everyone but his son and family members. He hired Veronica on the spot when he saw just how wonderful she interacted with his son, being able to put up with all his chatter with humor.

Once their intimate relationship started, she saw the softer side of him and the incredibly sweet and hot lover. She was surprised at how careful and understanding he was when she admitted that she was a virgin, he also was a little possessive. She never expected him to return her feelings and she kept telling herself that he was her employer and that it wasn’t professional. Yet, when they gave into their own lust, everything else left her brain.

I liked this story and am very glad I picked it up. Recommended.

Introverted teacher versus unstoppable violinist. She wants to be alone. He wants her heart. Let the games begin…

After the unexpected death of her musician brother, third-grade teacher Adara buries her grief, avoids all music and vows to exist without attachments. Social solitude works perfectly…until she’s forced to share her classroom with the new music mentor, a man who rattles her carefully constructed cage and sparks emotions she prefers to keep chained.

Always up for a challenge, violinist Garret is a master of patience and persistence, and the minute he meets Adara, he knows what he wants. Her sharp humor and haunted eyes inspire him in a way he’s never felt before. He makes it his mission to chip through her shields and breathe her back to life—no matter how hard she resists.

Even as Adara struggles to keep Garret at a distance with each clash of wills, each smile he coaxes, each kiss he steals, her resistance crumbles. But when the past catches up with them both, they will discover that some promises are meant to be broken…and others are worth risking everything for.

Grief is powerful. Like takes prisoners and holds them in darkness powerful. For Adara, losing her brother, the embodiment of joy and sunshine, was practically debilitating. She was alive but not living. It would take someone with a eye to see beyond her walls and a boat load of both patience and persistence to knock them down for her. Because that’s what she needed. Grief had built some seemingly impenetrable barriers. Who knew a swashbuckling band geek with an amazing musical talent would not only crack those walls, he would have her waiving the surrender flag to the rockin’ beat of Metallica’s Enter Sandman. You’ll want to read the book to get that reference.

I can honestly say I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. I read the prequel, Every Kiss, because I knew it would be short and I wanted a sample of the writer’s voice since I had requested Book 3, Every Breath, to read and review. That’s when I first met Adara. Just six months out from losing her beloved brother to the most horrible disease of cancer. She was closed off, hard to talk to, hard to like for this reader but I was mostly reading to get a feel for Gia and Ian who are the stars of Book 3. I knew that Adara and someone named Garrett were the feature in the first full length book so I was curious to see who could possibly pull her back from the abyss.

Only someone like Garrett Ambrose could have managed the nearly impossible. He stayed. He annoyed and chipped away at her every excuse and every defense. Bless him, he’s adorable and I had to keep reading to see what he would do or say that kept her in the present rather than allowing her to mourn the past. He’s very clever and I was thankful he didn’t give up on her.

The story isn’t completely focused on Garrett winning Adara over. He’s come home from a music tour but trouble followed him. That was an interesting side story that had me on the edge of my seat when it took a very heart wrenching turn.

Ms. Burright’s writing voice is excellent and I’m so very glad I didn’t give up on Adara because I can see her being important in the next book. I look forward to reading it to find out.

Emily Pitch is a brat – pure and simple. Not only is she a brat but she loves to get her own way, through emotional manipulation if necessary. She is in danger but she doesn’t take it seriously. Along come Levi, Maddox, and Grant, all determined to keep her alive.

This book is hard one for me to review. There are so many points that ticked my boxes – paranormal, romance, steamy, multiple partners, danger, to name just some. I think, for me, it just fell into the novella trap. So much time was spent on the attraction between these four that you never really get any story. I wanted to know more about the guys and their individual personalities. How did they come to be together in the first place? When did they first play together? And Emily. She admits to smelling them. Is that part of the world or just them, in those circumstances?

Saying that, though, this was a good easy read that kept me turning the pages. I did love the three men and their differences. If you are looking for something that isn’t too in-depth or bogged down with details, then I would have no hesitation in recommending this book. It is the fourth book in the series but can definitely be read as a standalone.

Oh, and one last – that forced seduction tag? I wouldn’t worry too much about that. They all want it, they just agree the timing is bad!

Annelise is recovering from a shock courtesy of her ‘we want different things’ ex-fiance. Really, who does that? What a jerk! As a reader, I instantly liked Annelise as a sympathetic character but I appreciated that the author didn’t put me through the full grief spectrum. Instead the story opens with her actively making the decision to heal. It didn’t hurt that ‘healing’ came in the form of a hot guy on a deserted beach.

One thing I noticed real quick. Remy’s got moves. Really sexy moves! Their brief time in Mexico was memorable and I was looking forward to when they would run into each other again.

I had in my mind how I thought that would go and surprisingly in a good way, I was wrong. The author throws in some instant intrigue that had me anxious to keep reading. She didn’t disappoint. I won’t go into details but meeting Remy’s sister, hearing about his brothers, there’s so much more story to tell. I for one can’t wait for the next installment.

Can the enchanting veterinarian and the guarded attorney fight the ghosts of the past and build a new future?

“One single month to convince an angry lion not to eat her up?” I don’t normally open a review with a quote from the book but this line was brilliant and I was breathless from Ellie and Jackson’s first encounter. He wants to be her dragon slayer and she heals him in ways he never imagined possible.

My first impression of Ellie Blevins, besides loving that she obviously has a huge heart for animals, is of a feisty, hard working, I’m not afraid to stand up for myself, owner of her dreams. Jackson was used to speaking and seeing people jump through hoops. Ellie didn’t do hoops.

First impression of Jackson Kincaid: he may be all kinds of dark dangerous alpha male but it was going to be a delight to watch Ellie bring him down a notch or three. Not to make him less of man, just less of a jerk and actually more of a man. Ms. Ohlin didn’t disappoint. The fall of Jackson Kincaid was as hot as it was smooth and satisfying.

By the way, Jackson isn’t really a jerk, he just plays one really well when confronted with a beautiful, sassy vet determined to not lose what she loves. It took only a conversation with his best friend and dose of his back story for me to realize I was going to fall in lust with this book hero right along with Ellie. He calls her ‘Babe’ and I felt it right along with her. ‘Babe’ doesn’t work for me in every book. It works really well for Jackson and Ellie’s book.

Readers, this is one of those books. The kind that makes you feel a little swoony when you read it. The story flows well, the characters have well built, pull-at-your-heart-strings background stories, and just the right amount of tension that builds up to some explosive love making. I knew very early on that I would be looking for other books by this author if they all read this well.

Looking for a hot book on a cold night? Salvaging Love is the first in the Rescue Me series and I can see Duggan’s book building to be a wonderful followup.

But that all changed, when Quinn and Ev confessed their feelings for each other six months ago…and then three days later when she started having erotic dreams about the other most important man in their lives.

She’s hopeful that a trip to Wolf Creek, Montana for a friend’s wedding can help her put those frustrating desires to rest, but when she gets there, Ev finds two examples of just how well unorthodox relationships can work. Maddy and Lily Hollis, the owner of the Triple Diamond B&B and her sister, are both happily involved with two men and it only serves to make Ev’s situation all the more complicated.

And if all three of them do make it out alive, will they have the courage to defy the status quo and embrace what’s waiting for them on the other side?

Not everyone sees a menage as a ‘normal’ relationship. Ev is one of these people, although she has dreams of being in a threesome with her boyfriend and their best friend. That can never happen though, right?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and thought it very well-written with plenty of thought and discussion going into whether they can make it work together or not. It wasn’t just accepted by the three of them, like it can be at times. No, instead, they had to work at it and make a conscious decision over what they would do. I loved that!

All three main characters are well-rounded out, and the supporting cast is excellent. The setting sounds wonderful, and Montana is now on my bucket list! With a fast yet smooth pace, I found this story to be gripping without being rushed. There is fun, there is danger, there are certainly hot and steamy times. All in all, what more could you want? Absolutely recommended by me.

Their relationship develops well and the minor characters in the book lend credence and depth to the story. Also interesting is the humor that Lily brings to the situation. The differences in their upbringing cause many upsets but also a lot of laughs.

I would mention that toward the end of the story a few editorial comments have been left in presumably by mistake. These caused a hiccup in concentration and if they are removed the book would be a wonderful read. I hope the author considers writing more about the minor characters in future books as it would definitely pique my interest.

On beautiful Shaw Island, Nolan and Gypsy boldly ignore their present situation for a blazing, forbidden passion. More than anything, he wants her back in his life. But for that to happen it will hurt another.

Inked Promise was a book that easily captured my attention.

I’m a sucker for the secret love child trope so I was intrigued by the plot of this book. It started out great. Nolan and Gypsy fell in love when they were both real young but they made some impossible choices. Nolan walked away from their relationship and unbeknownst to him left Gypsy pregnant with his child. It was four years before they met up again. By that time Nolan was engaged to marry someone else, and Gypsy couldn’t see the point in informing him that her daughter belonged to him. It was at this point that I started having some mixed feelings about the plot. She bald faced lied to Nolan and said that he wasn’t little Nika’s father, even after he asked her three times already. Still, I could overlook that because of the extenuating circumstances. Gypsy was a fiercely protective mother who was afraid that her little girl would be hurt by some of the other people in Nolan’s life.

There were some aspects of this story that tugged at the heart. Yet there were a few elements that had me shaking my head in disbelief. I’ll just say it there was some cheating that made me uncomfortable, and it made no difference to me that Nolan’s fiance happened to be a Cruella DeVille like character, cheating is still taboo in my book. Otherwise I would have reveled in the hot sex scenes between Nolan and Gypsy. On the other hand I loved the adorable kids and the over the top reactions in this story. I always go for the books that have light humor and this one did not disappoint in that area.

Technically, this book had a interesting plot with plenty of emotional conflict and a fast paced story. It had a fantastic hook of the main characters being star crossed lovers and wondering which choice to make …. something real or superficial perfection. The story was loaded with dramatic angst and interesting characters. I’m not sure but I might read the other books in the series. So I say that for readers who can look past the cheating aspect then this is a great story.
