She's bringing his son home

A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans's son safely home is more than a job. It's a mission she can't fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…

My heartstrings were in constant turmoil with this captivating return to Kate James’ San Diego K-9 Unit series! It had my full attention from the first page, and as secrets were told and plots were unraveled, I took the journey of ups and downs right along with them. A really intriguing plot will keep you guessing as this cast of characters weave their spell. It was great to see the crowd from the previous books and get some exciting updates on them. I’m crossing my fingers that there are more books on the way for us … after all, Quinn seems like quite a mystery awaiting unravel! 🙂

Awakening to find your child missing is every parents nightmare!  Sawyer Evans jumps into action searching everywhere to find him, but his efforts are fruitless. He just seems to have vanished!

Rookie K-9 officer Shannon Clemens is called out with her partner Darwin to look for the missing boy. Her first solo assignment might be the end of her if she can’t get her emotions under control. This case brings back so many memories of a tragedy from her past and she’s finding it hard to focus. Speaking with Sawyer seems to comfort her … as well as him. An unexpected connection forges in the wake of despair and helps keep an even keel as things spiral out of control.

Revenge…by seduction!

The last person Calista expects—or wants—to see at her father's graveside is arrogant billionaire Lukas Kalanos. Five years earlier, after an affair that stole her innocence, Lukas betrayed her family and disappeared, leaving Callie with much more than a broken heart…

Seeking vengeance on the Gianopoulous family for framing him, Lukas finds Callie ripe for his seduction. She will pay for past wrongdoings—between his sheets! But discovering that Callie has had his child is a surprise that changes Lukas's pleasurable plans for revenge…into a hunger to make her his own!

An attention getting, easy read! A vengeful man reconnects with a woman from his past to achieve a bit of revenge for how he was wronged, but learns some secrets along the way that might end up changing how he feels! The characters themselves are well developed, but I would have liked to have seen their relationship built out a bit more to be more complete. Overall a great read though!

When Calista Gianopoulous returns home to Greece for her estranged father’s funeral, the last person she expects to see there is Lukas Kalanos … her childhood friend, her teenage crush and the man who betrayed her family and caused their demise 5 years ago … and unbeknownst to him, her daughter’s father!

Lukas has returned to get his revenge on the Gianopoulous family. Callie’s father may be gone, but she was also at the top of the list of those who succeeded in setting him up to take a fall all those years ago and he won’t let her forget it. When the past is dredged up and their confrontation begins, they will quickly learn that they both were mistaken in what they believed happened … and have to figure out whether there’s a way around it to have a future with their daughter.

Hawkeye can't walk away from the woman in need. But tackling the role of ranch hand, horses and all, puts this soldier in a hot zone he never imagined.

Olivia needs more than just help with the cattle. The whole reason she's saddled with Stone Creek Ranch is because someone murdered her father…and now wants the ranch for themselves.

The continuing mystery in the Ballistic Cowboys series picks up with a vengeance in this latest installment! I’m really enjoying this series and looking forward to more to come.

Olivia came back to town to take over the ranch when her father was murdered recently. She’s not going to let whoever is trying to get their hands on her property win. As they spend time working the ranch and the dodging the dangerous situations that keep popping up, Trace starts to wonder how he will ever be able to make himself walk away from her when this is all over.

The ultimate friends to lovers romance! Such a sweet story! Lots of angst, some sweet friendship and surprise chemistry between them makes for a fun story. A quick and easy read. There wasn’t a lot to do with the actual band performing, etc. but it was a whirlwind of a book regardless!

A doctor for the desert king

Brooding billionaire Sheikh Idris Al Khalil wants one thing—the gift of hearing for his daughter, Amira—and he's willing to pay anything to get it! Enter Dr. Robyn Kelly, whose whirlwind approach to life sends his senses into overdrive.

Now, as the tension between Paddington's ENT specialist and the guarded sheikh mounts, Robyn can't help but wonder…is life in the desert with Idris and little Amira the family happy-ever-after she's always dreamed of?

Annie O’Neil pulls at our heartstrings with her latest medical romance! A brooding father, a precocious little girl and a life-scarred doctor connect and find their lives changing forever! The characters could have used a little more time together once they realized how they felt, but overall I enjoyed their story!

Sheikh Idris Al Khalil of Da’har would give anything for his daughter to be able to hear. He’s met doctor after doctor and hasn’t felt a connection with a single one of them as he tries to find the one person he will entrust his daughter’s health to for a cutting edge surgery that could very well give her sound in her life for the first time ever.

Doctor Robyn Kelly lives life in an exuberant way, and Idris isn’t sure what to make of her and her enthusiasm at first, but once his daughter meets her and is taken with her, he doesn’t think he could possibly find someone better to do her surgery. Robyn is out of her comfort zone when she’s having to deal with the PR side of her world at Paddington Children’s Hospital, but she’s definitely in her element when interacting with her patient!

Lara Ashburn hates bikers. She watched a motorcycle club destroy her hometown, bringing her brother down with it. That’s a life she put far in her rearview. So the last person she wants to see walking into her classroom is the top enforcer of the Devil’s Keepers. Big, mean, and gorgeous, all tattoos and leather, Chaser is everything Lara should avoid. Yet the insane chemistry sparking between them tempts her to break all the rules.

Ryan “Chaser” Frey has his hands full with a teen daughter in need of tough love, and he doesn’t have time for prissy teachers who want to tell him how to raise his kid. But Chaser never could resist a chick who gives as good as she gets. Lara is sexy as hell, and she’s not afraid of him. Plus, her links to a California club could provide the Devils with leverage against their enemies. But that would mean mixing business with pleasure—and risking the one woman Chaser can’t afford to lose.

Megan Crane has a way with words that has us sensing the menace rolling off of the skin of each and every one of the guys in this series, yet with the touch of the right woman, we watch them transform into a gentle soul right before our eyes! Yes, they are still mean and tough and raunchy as all get out … but there is still a deep connection and softness in how much they love their women. I am loving this series … and Chaser and Lara just increased my adoration! 🙂 Awesome characters, a heated atmosphere both with steamy sex and danger, and a plot that keeps me coming back for more. With the ending on this one, stuff is about to hit the fan, so I have my fingers crossed for the next book soon!

Ryan “Chaser” Frey doesn’t have time for petty nonsense, so when his teenage daughter’s teacher leaves him a massive number of messages in the one day he was unreachable with club business, it really rubs him the wrong way. What does this hoity toity priss know about raising a kid in his lifestyle?

Lara Ashburn grew up knee deep in the life, and she hates motorcycle clubs with a passion! She blames it for the childhood she had and for ruining her brother’s life. She wants desperately to make sure her student isn’t losing herself in the ugliness around her.

Ryan comes to the school to tell this teacher to get off his kid and mind her own business, but when she stands up and starts mouthing off to him, he can’t help but become amused … does she know who she’s talking to? … and does she realize her mouth is making him see her in a whole new light? Maybe he should show her … after all, when he puts his hands on her, she makes it real obvious that she hates it … and loves it even more!

Order. Attention to detail. Never leaving anything to chance. These are the qualities that make Riley Ness such a terrific federal agent . . . and a pain in the ass to everyone else. The only time Riley lets loose is when he’s hanging out with his closest pals. So when he’s thrown together with gorgeous, flighty Summer Sheridan, Riley’s brain tells him she’s a ticking time bomb—but his body doesn’t want to play by the rules.

Riley has to be the most irritating man Summer has ever met. The brooding hunk thinks he needs to teach her a few lessons about real life, while she’d rather show him how to enjoy it. But her BFF’s all but engaged to Riley’s best friend, and besides, their intense physical chemistry is all too real. Summer just needs Riley to try to meet her halfway and take a chance with the one thing that matters: his heart.

I always enjoy my visits with The Naked Men! 🙂  With the fourth book in this series, we get Riley Ness’ story. He’s super serious and rigid, but we get the story behind why he is the way he is, and we also get to see him lighten up a bit as love comes into his life. The characters are always great and we get to enjoy the guys and couples from the previous books. This one drifted away from the blog/podcast a lot though, so that was a little bit of a different aspect from this series. I wanted more time to enjoy them as a couple once they got together, but overall, a fun addition to the series!

Riley Ness is the serious one of the bunch! He plans his life rigidly and always watches out for everyone else. He lets down his guard with his buddies, but he doesn’t live dangerously. That’s why Summer Sheridan and her fly by night attitude drives him up the wall!

Summer’s best friend Chloe is all but engaged to be married to Riley’s best friend Griff, so they are thrown together a lot in social situations.  The gang has gotten used to hearing them banter and complain about each other. When they decide they need to try getting along better for Chloe and Griff’s sake, they realize they actually have a hot attraction for each other! Will hearing about each other’s life stories and knowing the reasoning behind their different ways of life help them understand the other or will it just be one more thing they fight about?

To trust and protect…

Tribal police chief Jack Bear Den will do anything to stop ecoterrorists. But partnering with disgraced ex-FBI explosives expert Sophia Rivas is trouble even his trail-tested skills never anticipated. Her out-there deductions are blowing up false leads, exposing treacherous lies—and sparking an attraction too dangerous for even Jack to resist.

By the book was never Sophia's style. To save lives, she has to gamble on her instincts more than ever. If Jack doesn't trust her, she can handle it—but letting him uncover her deepest secrets is a distraction neither can afford. And with the clock ticking down and disaster about to strike, getting too close may be the last move she and Jack ever make.

With the final book in her Apache Protectors: Tribal Thunder series, Jenna Kernan takes us for a wild ride with Jack Bear Den’s story! We have seen his strength and character throughout the series, so it’s great to finally see him up close and personal and get to go along for the ride as he uncovers the answers he’s been worrying over for quite some time now. His love interest is a fun and brings lots of explosiveness to the picture! 🙂

FBI explosives expert Sophia Rivas is doing a favor for her Uncle Luke Forrest when she agrees to meet with Jack Bear Den and his tribal cohorts about the dam safety on their reservation land. She’s in a bit of hot water in her own job right now, so she’s not looking to make waves in a consultation that has nothing to do with her future. She’ll get in, have a look-see and get out.

Jack isn’t expecting to feel an attraction to Sophia, but he can’t deny she packs a real wallop with her sassy attitude and dark beauty. He’s impressed with her knowledge even though what she tells him isn’t what he was hoping to hear. Will she agree to help his tribe with something that isn’t totally on the up-and-up in order to guarantee their safety or will she let her own concern for her job security pull her away? And when danger gets too close for comfort, will Jack be able to get her to safety before whoever is after her finds their mark?
