The Great Pick Up Line featuring The House at the Bottom of the Hill by Jenni Jones B&B owner Charlotte Simmons meets hotel owner Daniel Bradford for the first time in person…. Alright, so he wasn’t just any male specimen. Hot farm hand on hay stack, the caption said, as a vision of Daniel Bradford standing on the baler of his John Deere tractor erupted in her head. Wearing only his jeans, with fifty-five hay bales he’d hefted at his booted […]

It has been a while since I read a steampunk story so I perked right up when I noticed this one starting up a new series by an author I have enjoyed in the past.  And it was fantastic getting a parallel earth situation, some colorful characters, and a forbidden romance between a kinky inventor and a stalwart soldier from the opposing sides of a war. The book opens with French clockwork genius, pacifist, and bastard son of the country’s […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring Four-Leaf Clover by Charmaine Ross ‘I thought this might happen.’ The voice was bemused, and also very male. So deep and warm it clung to her bones. Which was absolutely ridiculous. She blinked away the spots and looked into a pair of striking eyes. What she thought was just light brown was now more sienna, with streaks of cinnamon spearing the inky iris. The eyes were keenly intelligent, and she felt as though she […]

D’s story!  I have wanted his story since the moment I encountered him.  This action-packed passionate romantic suspense series has produced some amazing characters, but it was this cold, lethal man’s story that I just had to have.  And here it is. I have gone about things the wrong way around this series.  My first encounter was with book five and that was the only one I read.  Loved it!  Did I go back and get the rest? We-ll no, […]

After reading the prequel and getting to know the main players in this series, I was eager to plunge in and get the full story.  The Prince, his people, the traitor in the midst, the Prince’s revenge against the Emersons…oh yes, I was ready. The story opens a few years after the prequel.  The Prince had his eyes set on the Emersons and getting revenge against them because they purchased his stolen art.  He was distracted by an assassination attempt […]

DNF at p. 139 I grabbed up this book because of the exciting and curious blurb- a woman thief pretending to be someone else while hiding out as an escapee from Bedlam with a lord and his sister on their estate with the promise that she would not let him fall for her.  Yes, it really did sound just the thing. However, after reading nearly half this story and pushing myself to finish it, I’ve decided to stop.  I couldn’t […]

Long. Time. “You’re beautiful.” She felt a piece of short bread fall into her lap. “Excuse me?” “You are. You are beautiful. I think you’re lovely.” She waved a fork.

While I wasn’t really into the first book based on Colt King, I really wanted Duke King’s story. You get a hint that he went to prison, but not really sure why other than it was a little shady what he was accused of doing. Then there is the whole secret kid while I have been gone that he just finds out about. So I knew a little going in, but not much in the way of details. Duke King […]

I read this as part of the Red Hot Lovers Box Set.  This was another new to me author and I found her writing enchanting.  This was a New Adult story, but it had the flavor of an older style romantic suspense.  There is a hint of magic or is there?  The reader is never sure and neither is the heroine as her holiday to Crete involves more than exploring its fabulous culture, beaches, and food. Olivia has joined her […]

She shivered. ‘Yes?’ – The Great Pick Up Line – Under the Hood by Juanita Kees #TGPUL #Giveaway Click To Tweet Under […]
