A creature of fantasy…

…and the man of her dreams

Musician Torque is known for his incendiary solos and smoking-hot looks. Hollie Brennan is a dedicated fan drawn to the sexy guitarist. But she’s also an FBI agent tracking a serial arsonist…and the evidence leads her to Torque, a dragon shifter in disguise. As the sparks fly, Torque and Hollie must fight fire with fire and track down the person endangering their love.


Smoking hot connection! With the second book in the Beast series, we get Torque’s story. In the first book in the series, we learned the entire band is filled with various animal shifters and that they are super tight. Torque discovers that his past may be connected to the arsonist that’s following his every move, so he sets out to get to the bottom of who it is. I felt the shifter/mystery aspect of the story was very strong and held our attention easily. The romance, while I liked them and wanted them together, I felt there could have been more of their relationship brought into the plot. Overall a very solid follow-up book!

FBI agent Hollie Brennan has been working on a serial arsonist case for years and a sudden break through has her connecting the dots to a common denominator. She gets the go ahead to go undercover to get close to musician Torque to see if he has anything to do with the case himself or has somehow earned himself a fan wishing to heat things up!

John “Torque” Jones is the guitarist to the popular rock band Beast. He meets Hollie and knows instantly that she’s his mate. She might be human, but he’s half dragon-shifter and can sense their connection the moment he looks into her eyes. Circumstances lead to them spilling their secrets to each other and working together to see who’s set their sight on them … if they solve this case, is there a chance at forever?

One night of passion, mistaken identity…

and unmistakable consequences!

Jillian Ross craves adventure. And she gets it when her new career as a film scout leads her to the ranch owned by the wealthy Wyoming McNeills. Giving in to temptation with the playboy McNeill causes havoc—since it’s actually his reclusive twin, Cody, she’s fallen for! Now she’s pregnant—and still can’t get enough of her reluctant rancher. Is this adventure just beginning?


Mistaken identity at the worst possible time! With another sassy read in The McNeill Magnates series, we are meeting the Wyoming side of the family and quickly become entrenched in their drama. It’s fun to see hints of the New York guys as we get to know the cousins better. A strong foundation of secrets were exposed in this book, so I’m looking forward to what’s to come in the series!

Film location scout Jillian Ross has found a location her boss is going to adore for the western film she’s working on … only trouble is, the owner shut her down before she could even get out her full spiel! She can’t lose this location, or her new job might be history before she’s barely started, so she sets out to find his much friendlier brother and convince him to get her a meeting!

Cody McNeill isn’t one for partying it up all that much, but when he sees the sexy thing that just walked into his local bar, he’s happy tonight is the night he walked through that door. After a steamy hook-up, he realizes not only did she think he was his twin brother, but this is that Hollywood type that’s been ringing his phone off the hook! He’d be nudging her towards the county line right quick like … if only she hadn’t just wound up pregnant!

Years after betraying her, he’s back in Haven Point…and ready to learn the truth

Megan Hamilton never really liked Elliot Bailey. He turned his back on her family when they needed him the most and it almost tore them all apart. So she’s shocked when Elliot arrives at her family’s inn, needing a place to stay and asking questions that dredge up the past. Megan will rent him a cottage, but that’s where it ends—no matter how gorgeous Elliot has become.

Coming back home to Haven Point was the last thing bestselling writer Elliot Bailey thought he’d ever do. But the book he’s writing now is his most personal one yet and it’s drawn him back to the woman he can’t get out of his mind. Seeing Megan again is harder than he expected and it brings up feelings he’d thought were long buried. Could this be his chance to win over his first love?


Mysteriously intriguing! I’m used to a heartwarming love story enriched by close knit families and community when I pick up one of RaeAnne Thayne’s delightful Haven Point novels, and I received that once again with this latest book … but I also received a mystery! Much-loved by the town Megan finds herself drawn to returning Elliot, but his insistence to stir up something that has been painful to her family for many years just might stop her attraction cold! Great characters, a town we already love and this added mystery to the plot gave it a real pull. SO looking forward to Luke’s story!!

Inn owner Megan Hamilton has a personality that makes her a favorite of just about anyone she meets, but for some reason she’s always felt like Elliot didn’t care for her. When they’ve been around her in the past, he’s always come off as stand-offish. He once was in a position to help a her family with a crucial matter, but instead turned his back and believed speculation over them. She’s not overly happy to see him pop up at her inn looking for a place to stay while he’s in town for a few weeks.

FBI agent and bestselling author Elliot Bailey plays his cards close to his vest, and the reason he keeps Megan at a distance is because he’s secretly been crushing on her for years. This opportunity of being close by for a few weeks just might be his chance to see if she returns his interest at all, but when he starts looking into a matter that she wishes would stay buried, it could stir up more trouble than he’s looking for!
