From perfect strangers…

To mommy and daddy!

One night with a gorgeous stranger is the perfect distraction for Elspeth from the happy-ever-after that will never be hers. The trainee doctor and carer has no room in her life for romance, until a surprise pregnancy catapults her back into Fraser’s world… She soon discovers that the man whose touch she can’t forget is a laird and the baby she’s carrying is heir to a Scottish castle!


From one night, to forever! The latest from Ellie Darkins is fast paced and enjoyable. Two lonely hearts collide for a night of passion that neither of them expect to go any further … until she finds out a few weeks later that they are having a baby! There were a few plot holes here and there and lacked a bit of authenticity in the dialect of a true Scot, but overall it was a solid read with a heartfelt story line.

Elspeth has responsibility coming out of her ears, so when she gets the chance to let her hair down for one night, she decides to let caution fly to the wind. Unfortunately fate decided she needed a good laugh and now she’s having to track down that one night stand to tell him he’s going to be a daddy!

Fraser hasn’t had a great example of fatherhood throughout his life, so when he learns he’s about to become one, he’s a bit nervous. Elspeth isn’t exactly enthralled about making this ready-made family work with him, but he’s determined to show her that she can juggle it all like the best of them.

When a tireless newswoman becomes the story…

she could lose everything—starting with the family business.

To get the scoop on two grisly murders, newspaper publisher Audrey Anderson needs help from Winchester sheriff Colton Tanner—the gorgeous cowboy who betrayed their teenage love. But Audrey fears that finding the killer will mean exposing the family secret she desperately needs to stay buried. She’ll do whatever she has to in order to protect those she loves. No matter what happens…or how hot things get with Colt.


Secrets and intrigue nabbed my attention quickly! With the story line of two gruesome murders competing with the reunion of young love done wrong, there’s never a dull moment in the first Winchester, Tennessee Thriller. I enjoyed it and look forward to more in the series!

Audrey Anderson has made a life for herself as a big city reporter in DC for the last decade, but now that her uncle is wanting to retire, she’s returning home to take over the family newspaper business. The last person she wants to be interacting with is the man who broke her heart all those years ago, but with this latest burst of crime, it can’t be helped.

Winchester, Tennessee sheriff Colton Tanner made the biggest mistake of his life when he hurt Audrey, and even though he wishes with all of his might that he could turn back the clock on her pain, he can’t regret all that came from his dalliance. Working with her on this case brings back memories and showcases the attraction that neither of them can deny is running strong.

Welcome to Bad@ss Builds where the motorcycles are as sexy as the brothers building them.

Austin Burns:
I thought she wasn't real the first time I saw her. To be fair I was a hungover mess when I woke up and looked into her gorgeous eyes. After getting the second worst news of my life--that my father would be paroled soon--I'd escaped to my buddy's posh cabin near Lake Tahoe. Now the maid with the gorgeous eyes is snowed in with me, and I wonder if she might be a better distraction than the mountain of booze I'd planned on drinking. She's curvy in all the right places, and the snow is falling faster.

Rachel Tannenbaum:
As a single mom, I don't have time for men, especially irresponsible tattooed bad boys like my ex. But Austin is hot. And sexy. And stuck here in the cabin with me. I can't say no to a fling with this bad boy, especially since Austin is so gorgeous and awkwardly sweet.
One night becomes two, and I don't know if I can risk my heart--and my little boy's--if Austin wants it to become more when we get through the snow and back to reality.


My first read by Gillian Archer did NOT disappoint! A broody hunk, an independent single-mom and loads of drama from both sides made for a really fun read. It’s steamy, it’s saga-ish and it’s really heartwarming. I loved the kick-off to the Burns Brothers series and cannot wait to read more!

Austin Burns is a drunken mess the first time they meet. He’s just been informed that his father was granted parole and isn’t sure how he’s going to find the strength to bring this destruction down on his brothers. Who wouldn’t run off to a buddy’s cabin to get plastered out of his mind? He wasn’t expecting company, but as soon as he gets a look at how gorgeous she is, he’s not minding one bit!

Over-worked single mom Rachel Tannenbaum just had one more cleaning job to complete before she could get out of this snowstorm and home to her little boy. She’s shocked to find someone home at what was supposed to be an empty cabin, but she plans to whip the place into shape and be on her way ASAP. Things have a way of not working out when she needs them to though, and this is no exception. She’s snowed in … with a sexy-as-all-get-out hunk of a man. She’s in big trouble! A one-night fling turns into more when they least expect it!

Welcome to Bad@ss Builds where the motorcycles are as sexy as the brothers building them.

Austin Burns:

I thought she wasn’t real the first time I saw her. To be fair I was a hungover mess when I woke up and looked into her gorgeous eyes. After getting the second worst news of my life—that my father would be paroled soon—I’d escaped to my buddy’s posh cabin near Lake Tahoe. Now the maid with the gorgeous eyes is snowed in with me, and I wonder if she might be a better distraction than the mountain of booze I’d planned on drinking. She’s curvy in all the right places, and the snow is falling faster.

Rachel Tannenbaum:

As a single mom, I don’t have time for men, especially irresponsible tattooed bad boys like my ex. But Austin is hot. And sexy. And stuck here in the cabin with me. I can’t say no to a fling with this bad boy, especially since Austin is so gorgeous and awkwardly sweet.

One night becomes two, and I don’t know if I can risk my heart—and my little boy’s—if Austin wants it to become more when we get through the snow and back to reality.






“Are you this indecisive with every fucking thing, or do I just bring it out in ya?” Austin grumbled from somewhere inside the room.

I cleared my throat. “Where, um, where is the dog?”

The room in front of me was a dark cave, and I had that prickling sensation that someone or something was watching me in a menacing way. I just knew it was Blue.

“He’s in here next to me. Relax. Contrary to his growl, he’s just a big baby. You got nothing to worry about.”

“Maybe you could grab one of those chargers for me and fling it in my general direction?” I would’ve turned tail and run already, but I needed to charge my phone. I had to talk to my kid soon, and I should’ve called my boss an hour ago.

“Blue is really docile. I swear. Come on over and pet him. You’ll see.”

My eyes had adjusted to the lack of lighting, and I could see Austin in the front row of recliners with a large dark shadow at his feet.

My heart pounded into my throat. “Yeah, no. I’m good here.”

“Blue, stay.” Austin commanded before he huffed as he got up then walked to the back of the room and fiddled with something. I didn’t really watch him—I was too busy keeping my eyes on the shadow in front of the recliners. A soft panting let me know that I was right. Blue was right there, probably watching me with his big, hungry eyes.


I flinched when Austin appeared at my side. My fight or flight instincts kicked in as I took a few steps back—away from him or the dog I didn’t know. I just wanted to fly away.

“Whoa. Hold up. It’s okay. No one here—man or dog—is gonna hurt you. If it’ll make you feel better, you can take your charger and hole up in a bedroom with the door locked or whatever. Here.” He held the cord out in his hand and the gentle, understanding look in his eyes melted me, and I started babbling.

“I don’t want to be antisocial, it’s just that dogs kinda scare me.” And you kinda scare me too.

“Ah, I’m sorry, sweetheart. I’ll put him in the garage so you don’t—”

“Oh no. You don’t have to do that. I don’t want you kicking him out. I can hang out upstairs or something.”

“It’s not exactly like I’m putting Blue out in the cold. Cole’s garage is nicer than most people’s houses. It’s nicer than the house I grew up in. Blue will be fine.”

I shook my head as I accepted the cord. “I’d still feel bad.”

Austin rocked back on his heels and stuffed his hands in his back pockets. “How deep is this fear of yours? Could you come over and meet Blue? I’ll turn on the lights and stand between you. Despite his size, he’s really a big marshmallow, I swear.”

I bit my lip in indecision. Austin was persuasive, but my fear of dogs went pretty deep. If Blue was a Pitbull, I was out of here. “What breed is he?”

“He’s a Great Dane. They’re the teddy bears of dogs, I promise.”

“I, uh, okay.”

Austin smiled at me as he grabbed my hand. My heart stuttered for a second before it pounded hard in my chest. I’d like to attribute my sudden arrhythmia to fear, but I knew better. I just didn’t want to think about it. Nothing was going to come of this anyway—Austin still thought I had a man back home.

He flicked on the light switch with his other hand, flooding the room with light. I blinked against the glare then focused on the large dog on the floor. My whole body tensed. The dog’s head tilted as he watched me. Unlike the monster that’d mauled me as a teenager, this dog was kinda…lazy looking. Blue let out a soft sigh then fell over onto his side with a human sounding groan. My lips curled slightly, and most of the tension drained from me. He looked sweet and not threatening at all.

“See? He’s a lazy lump. Most days I’m lucky if I can get him off the couch. He’s like a big, lazy teenager but with none of the attitude. And trust me, I’d know.”

I nodded slightly, not letting Blue out of my sight. I knew Austin was the oldest of four brothers. But I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to look like the crazy stalker I clearly was.

Austin’s rumbling voice tore me from my thoughts. “Are you okay with getting closer to him? Blue won’t mind.”

“I, uh, okay,” I mumbled. Blue looked sweet enough, but I was still too nervous to trust he was a teddy bear. He still looked very doglike to me.

“I got Blue two years ago. When he was a puppy, he was the size of most medium adult dogs. But he was as lazy as ever, even as a puppy.” Austin chattered away as we approached the dog in question. Blue blinked languidly at us but didn’t get up, or even lift his head. A low thumping sound pulsed in the silent room as Blue’s tail wagged, walloping away at the floor. “He’s lazy; he won’t get up even when he’s excited.”

My smile grew as I watched Austin kneel down next to the prone dog. He rubbed Blue on his ribs, but still the dog didn’t really move—aside from his tail, which continued to thump against the floor. “Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy?”

The baby talk was ridiculously sweet and totally at odds with his professional persona. With the tattoos and muscles and overall badass aura, it made my ovaries flutter to watch Austin caress and sweettalk his dog. And it totally distracted me from my fear, right up to the point that Austin grabbed my hand again.

“You okay with giving him a little pat? I’ll keep myself between you two for your peace of mind, but you’ve got nothing to worry about. He let my brothers lay on top of him.”

My heartbeat thrummed in my ears from the combination of my fear and Austin’s touch. But that sweet, soft look in his eye had me grinning, and before I even realized it, words were coming out of my mouth. “I, uh, yeah sure. That’s okay.”

Austin guided my hand toward Blue’s blue-grey coat. The dog didn’t flinch as our entwined hands moved over him. His fur was soft and kinda bristly. And warm. After a minute Blue groaned again and rolled onto his back, leaving his soft fleshy belly exposed.

“He really loves belly rubs. Here.” Austin moved our hands over Blue’s belly which felt surprisingly like my own skin—soft, hairless, and with that give of a not really firm tummy.

I laughed as I petted him. Austin smiled and looked into my eyes as our hands continued to move over Blue.

“See? Nothing to worry about. Blue’s just a big ol’ baby. Not a scary bone in his body.” Austin’s fingers linked with mine for a second.

I looked down at our joined hands and felt a tingle between my legs. It’d been so, so long since I’d been near a guy I kinda liked, let alone touched one. But I knew no matter how I felt, nothing would ever come of it. I had a son at home, a mom to take care of, and besides, I doubted he had the same jolt that I’d felt just because our hands had touched. He still thought I was married.

You could fix that, a naughty little voice whispered in my head. But I couldn’t think of a way to bring it up that didn’t sound like a come-on. I didn’t want to look like a needy hussy, especially if he wasn’t into me. How embarrassing would that be, if I all but threw myself at him and he rejected me? Meanwhile, we had to spend however much time together. Alone.

No thank you.

I’m the NHL’s toughest enforcer, the Body Checker, and I earned that title the hard way. I’m all about the game, a no attachment, no strings kind of guy, so when a puck bunny shows up at my door, shoves a pink bundle into my hands and drives off into the sunset, it turns my world upside down. I’m not cut out to be a family man. I know nothing about babies and I’m the last guy who should be taking care of one. But I do know someone who is equipped for the job—Quinn Reed, my best friend’s kid sister. Problem is, she kind of…hates me.

Jonah Long…a father? Move in and help take care of his daughter? Crazy as that sounds, I agree to the temporary arrangement, for the child’s sake. Problem is, living with the guy I’ve crushed on since forever, is messing with my body as well as my brain. And now, watching him grow as a man, seeing the bond between father and daughter build, I can’t help but want this family for myself. But we’re just playing house, and Jonah isn’t interested in making this ready-made family the real deal…right?


Steamy, dramatic and downright fun! With book three in the Players On Ice series, Cathryn Fox gives us a confident jock who changes his ways the second a baby is put into his arms. It’s super sweet to watch him grow into a caring father right before our eyes, and the connection he grows to have with Quinn is not only sweet, but super spicy. There’s not much in the way of hockey in this book, but the rest of the story is spot on! Can’t wait for Zander’s story.

Pro hockey player Jonah Long is the ultimate party animal. He enjoys every aspect of his fame and fortune, from parties to the different woman warming his bed every night … but it’s all about to change when one of his puck bunnies shows up at his door and thrusts a baby into his arms!

Quinn Reed’s brother is Jonah’s best friend and teammate. She’s crushed on Jonah for years, and can’t stand to see him carousing around with all of these other women. She can’t believe it when Zander calls to ask her to help him out with the baby, but she loves kids and she’s not going to let this poor baby girl suffer just because her new daddy is ignorant! Being under the same roof with Jonah is going to be a temptation though … quite possibly one she can’t resist!

Rule #1: Never fall for your client.
Rule #2: Never fall for your client’s fiercely protective, smoking hot sister-in-law.

I’m the kind of guy who believes that everyone deserves the best legal representation money can buy—which just so happens to be me, Lucas Wright. Give me your henpecked, your cuckolded, your irreconcilable differences yearning to break free! And if you’re the bad guy in your marriage, that’s cool too. Your green is as good as anyone’s.

Tell that to Trinity Jones. It’s my job to destroy her sister—the soon-to-be ex-wife of my a-hole of a client—and Trinity’s “big sis” instincts are dialed up to the max. I admire that. I admire her. But she won’t stop me from representing my client to the best of my ability.

Not even if my chemistry with Trinity is undeniable. Not even if we can’t keep our hands off each other. Not even if she injects life into a heart assumed to be long dead.

Because when faced with a choice between love and duty, the job will always win—or at least that’s what I thought before I met Trinity . . . and suddenly conflict of interest never felt so right.


Witty dialogue, snarky exchanges and smoking hot attraction turns our head with Kate Meader’s second book in her Law of Attraction series. I am enjoying this series, but it’s not my favorite style of this author’s writing.

As a whiskey sommelier, Trinity Jones comes across men of all natures, but Lucas Wright just might take the cake for the cockiest around. He’s condescending, he’s smoking hot and that British accent of his … well, she’d be more irritated if she wasn’t so attracted at the same time!

A chance meeting at a bachelor party leaves Lucas wanting more! Too bad they discover he’s representing her slimy ex brother-in-law who’s trying to take her sister for a ride in their divorce. She should be off-limits, they both agree to that … but there’s something about her that he just can’t stay away from!

When a King loves
He loves hard

I’ve loved her since we were five years old.
We grew up side by side.
Two kids tied together by the Kings of Mayhem Motorcycle Club.
But I broke us.
I broke her.
So, she fled.
Now she’s back after twelve long years.
And I’m going to show her all the reasons why we should be together and make her forget all the reasons why we shouldn’t.

I’m back in town but only because I have to be.
I’m here to help my mom bury my father.
And the sooner we get it done, the better.
Because I want to see Cade as much as I want a hole in the head.
He broke me once—no, he broke my everything— and I’ll be damned if I’ll let him do it again.
Get in and get out. That is the plan.
But you know what they say about best-laid plans.


My first book by Penny Dee left me hungry for more! With the first book in the Kings of Mayhem series, we get the lowdown on Cade Calley, Indigo Parrish and a bit about both of their family’s history with the MC. I didn’t think the very beginning of the book really added much to the story, and I could have done without the flashbacks to when they were younger quite as often, but overall I felt like this book laid a strong foundation of the close-knit family surrounding this motorcycle club. I’m looking forward to more to come! NOTE … there was a bit of a cliffhanger in this book. Not having to do with the HEA, but a major family/MC moment.

Childhood best friends turned young loves, Cade and Indy thought they’d be together forever. Plans were made and hearts were invested, but one night changed it all. She left town feeling the betrayal of the world on her shoulders, and he stayed and paid for his sins.

Returning home to bury her father, Indy isn’t in any mood to reminisce about the good old days. She wants to get in, get out and go on with her life before the memories of what used to be can weigh her down too much. Seeing Cade again is just the knife in the chest she was expecting … but he’s determined to prove to her that he still cares.

Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.

Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.

Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.


My favorite of the series! There was just something about Cam and Olivia that really had me invested in their relationship right from the start. Each of them was a good person all in their own right, but had reasons for not trusting in forever. It was a joy to watch them overcome their doubts and go for it. Really enjoyed the Aces!

Chicago Aces hockey player Cam Brickley is always up for a challenge! When his teammates bet him he can’t get the hot blonde standing over at the bar to go out with him, he’s all in! When they bet him he can’t date her for two months without falling in love, he says even better. Color him shocked when he actually enjoys her company and doesn’t want the two months to be up.

Olivia Lockwood is used to men wanting her for who her family is, so when she meets Cam who obviously has money all on his own, it’s almost like a breath of fresh air to spend time together. She’s not in it for a relationship, but she could use a spokes-person for her non-profit! Both are looking for a win in their own way, but neither are expecting to stumble into their very own forever.
