** Book Review ** AWAKENING THE RAVENSDALE HEIRESS by Melanie Milburne


4 1/2 STARS!

I really enjoyed meeting the next Ravensdale sibling!  I enjoyed Julius in the prior book, but his sister Miranda stole my heart even more.  She’s so sweet and carrying and she was just what Leandro needed!

Miranda Ravensdale is hiding out from the press after her latest family scandal when she runs into family friend Leandro Allegretti.  Leandro wants to help get her out from under some of the stress, and he could also use her art expertise to catalog his art collection, so he whisks her away to the French Riviera with him for a couple of weeks.

Miranda’s first taste of love and romance as a teen ended badly, so she’s sworn off ever trying again.  Leandro hates seeing her let life pass her by, so he sets out to razz her into coming out of her funk.  When they start to see in other in a different light, will they run scared or give in to their attraction?

** Book Review ** UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT by Kate Willoughby



These characters really worked their way into my heart.  Each one was a nice person in their own right, and I loved the connection between them from the first moment.  Great read!

Stage actress Christine Caspary seeks out Joe Rutherford via their agents to see if he will do her a favor for a sick kid she worked with via Grant A Wish previously.

The minute Joe heard her name from his agent, he knew who she was.  His hockey team had seen her in Chicago on Broadway, and he was so enchanted by her that he went back to see it a second time by himself.  He was happy to help her put together a surprise for a sick friend.

While discussing the charity work, they really enjoyed each others company and decided to continue to grab some time together when they could.  With his busy hockey schedule and her busy theater life plus her potential TV show coming up, they didn’t manage to squeeze in much time.  Will they be able to make a relationship work or is it just wishful thinking on both their parts?
