In Nashville the music is louder, the dreams are bigger, and love can bring a cowboy to his knees.

Ethan Walker is Nashville royalty. Born to the King and Queen of Country Music, he's spent his life trying to escape the spotlight of his parents' fame, even walking away from his own promising singing career. He's the kind of cowboy who prefers flannel to flashbulbs, hay fields to hit records, and the solitude of his horse farm to the nightlife along Music Row. The last thing he wants is attention, especially when it comes from country's latest star...

Chelsea Harris's meteoric rise up the charts and string of celebrity boyfriends mean that wherever she goes, the paparazzi follow. A duet with Nashville's favorite son is exactly what her new charity album needs, but when she approaches Ethan, he turns her down flat. To win the camera-shy cowboy over, Chelsea will have to approach him on his terms. Trouble is, the more time she spends on his farm, the more Ethan wants to keep her there.


Opposites attract in the heart of Nashville! With the second book in the Nashville Dreams series, we get Ethan’s story. We met him in the first book and got a hint into his past as the son of music legends, and with this book we get details of how his childhood went down and why he chooses to turn away from it all and shun the spotlight on a daily basis. The characters are fun and the plot is interesting. Looking forward to more in the series!

Rising star Chelsea Harris is enjoying living the life as a country music performer in Nashville. The last few years have been extremely busy for her, so she’s looking forward to a little time off of the road as she works on recording an album of duets for a charity project that is near and dear to her heart. She has one dream talent that she knows she just has to get to agree to do a song with her on the record … it will make it a hit and raise tons of money for sure! … only problem is, he’s flat out saying no way.

Cowboy Ethan Walker has no interest in stepping into the limelight with Chelsea. He’s lived his whole life trying to live down the stigma of being the only child of the King & Queen of Country Music. His youth was spent in a music career with a voice full of potential that he gladly walked away from once he was old enough to have his say. Give him the horses on his farm any day of the week for company and he’s a happy man. He kind of let’s his friends that he co-owns Words & Music bar with pester him into hearing her out and giving her a chance … but he doesn’t have to be happy about it! The more time he spends getting to know the girl behind the name, the more he realizes he likes her … if she could just be happy out of the media circus, he could see himself happy with her. If only!

This sexy tycoon has everything…

So why is he searching for a baby?

To Chief Deputy Suzy Simmons, James Callahan is the dark-haired, sexy-as-hell millionaire with abs from her past. But despite his megacharm and killer body, Suzy deeply distrusts him when he draws her into his investigation of a criminal’s murder. The courageous beauty is determined to get answers, not come-ons. As they race against time, James and Suzy face unseen danger with their case—and hearts—heating up.


One shocking discovery after another! Adversaries find themselves joining forces as they embark on the mystery that is turning up bodies left and right. The intrigue from the beginning catches our attention and though the plot is entrenched with a few undeveloped holes in the story, it is strong enough to keep us reading to find out the answers they’ve been looking for.

Chief Deputy Suzanne Simmons doesn’t realize what she’s walking into while out investigating one day. Her shocking findings lead to more questions than answers and bring danger to her side. While she appreciates the rescue she receives, she doesn’t trust the man it comes from even a little bit.

Businessman James Callahan knows Suzy doesn’t care for him, but when she happens to be in the right place at the right time to give him some input into the mystery surrounding him, he hopes she’ll realize he’s not the bad guy here. When their sleuthing turns up the fact that there’s an innocent baby out there somewhere, they join forces to get to the bottom of what’s going on and who’s behind it … but danger seems to always be just around the next corner, and they are going to have to stay on their toes to make it through this investigation!

He's always had a way with the ladies
She won't give him the time of day
Sparks fly when two hearts in motion collide.

Florist Joey Reeves is working overtime to stay away from Lou Cortez, the ace mechanic with a reputation for irresistible charm. She's a single mom with enough on her plate—the last thing she needs is entanglement with the hottest guy in town...

"Well, hello there."

Joey glanced up and froze. The man who'd been haunting her sleep looked even better in the hard light of day.
"H-hello." She coughed. The guys who worked at Webster's Garage all looked larger than life, covered in tattoos, muscles, and that indefinable sense of danger they wore like a second skin. But this guy, the tall, Latin lover with dark-brown eyes and lips made for kissing, who had snared her.


Sexy, sinful and sweet all rolled into one! With the latest book in her Body Shop Bad Boys series, Marie Harte brings us Lou’s story. He’s always been the smooth-talking pretty boy around the garage who gets women without even trying, so it’s interesting to watch him find a woman the he’s attracted to who won’t give him the time of day! This entire series has been a really fun interaction of a group of tough-guy friends/co-workers who are more like family. The characters were both very easy to like, we were drawn into their sexual tension from the start and the surprises we uncovered along the way made for an intriguingly sweet read!

Mechanic Lou Cortez enjoys life. He has a huge close-knit family that he adores, he not only has the job here at the shop with the boys, but he also gets to enjoy putting his creative side to work in his side job. When a beautiful woman walked into the shop a few months ago, he was intrigued … but she wouldn’t even look at him. What’s up with that? Women always love him!

Florist Josephine Reeves obviously noticed Lou, but she has better things to do in life than fall at the feet of a man who goes through women like water. He doesn’t give up though, and when happenstance brings him into the flower shop while she’s working, she finds herself giving in and actually agreeing to coffee. She can’t deny that he’s attractive, and he turns her knees weak with just one steamy look … but she has a lot counting on her with a whole other side of her life that he knows nothing about. Can she really give in to simple lust and have a fling without it ruining her plans?



I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

His preferred method?

Ruthless, irresistible seduction!

Imogen O’Sullivan is horrified when charismatic tycoon Raoul breaks up her engagement and makes her his own convenient bride! She once surrendered everything to Raoul—body, heart and soul. But as he stalks back into her life, it’s clear he has punishment in mind, not just passion! Can Imogen resist Raoul’s potent brand of delicious vengeance?


Reunited lovers! Secrets, lies and revenge push this story into the limelight as each believes wrong information about the other leading to hard feelings on both sides. This wasn’t my favorite book by this author as it was a bit confusing and very slow moving, but in the end I was intrigued enough to want to know how they were going to manage that happily ever after.

Imogen O’Sullivan is on the cusp of marrying to secure her family’s future when a blast from the past sends her spinning! What is he doing here … and why does it seem like he’s angry at her when he’s the one that shoved her out the door? The feelings churning throughout her are going to ruin everything!

Raoul Cardini pushed Imogen away after their short-lived affair a couple of years ago because of conflicted feelings and falling under the spell of a supposed friend who purposely told him mis-information. He believes she greatly wronged him and is here to step into the middle of her big wedding plans before she can marry another … but will he be able to convince her to fall for his act before he starts to lose his heart to her for real?
