Her baby surprise proves…

…that one night will never be enough!

Reeling from the secrets that have torn his heritage apart, Enzo Bartolini is set on selling his family’s Tuscan vineyard and trying to forget the impulsive, dazzling night he and best friend Sylvie shared in Paris. While the sale moves forward, the thrilling awareness between him and Sylvie is harder to move past…especially when she upends Enzo’s world by revealing she’s carrying his baby!


An emotional conclusion to a dazzling series! THE ITALIAN’S UNEXPECTED HEIR by Jennifer Faye is the third book in the Bartolini Legacy trilogy. I enjoyed this series as a whole, but I found myself wanting a little more from Enzo’s story. Maybe it’s because we already knew the conclusion of the paternity twist from the previous book, or maybe it was that I wanted more interaction with the siblings as a whole to feel a lock up from all of the emotions they stirred up in their search and competition. Overall the story was fast paced and satisfying.

Enzo Bartolini was a little underwhelming at first. He had a big voice during his sister’s previous two books in the series yet in this one he seemed to roll over and admit defeat where there really didn’t need to be any. I grew to understand him more as the book went on, but I wanted a little more from him.

Sylvie was really easy to like. She quickly gained my sympathy as she was floundering with not knowing where she belongs if her job isn’t going to be there anymore.

I recommend this book and the entire trilogy to anyone who enjoys a passionate telling of happily ever afters and family drama.

She’ll help protect his ranch…

And heal his heart

Firefighter Jade Carson needs to get the local residents out of a wildfire’s path, but Aidan Bell isn’t moving. Still grieving a tragedy, the stubborn rancher plans to stay and save his animals. Jade and Aidan battle the blaze on his property, only to feel the spark of something unexpected. Secrets are shared, hope kindles…but can they leave the past’s ashes behind and let love grow?


Attention grabbing characters, fever pitched drama and more feels than you know what to do with … this may just be my favorite book by Claire McEwen yet! With book four in her always endearing Heroes of Shelter Creek series she dazzles with a heart wrenching story of a grieving rancher whose property is in the path of an out of control wildfire and the headstrong firefighter left to fight by his side. The story line was riveting, the characters were extremely easy to like and each of their backstories were heartfelt. I loved everything about this book!

Aidan Bell is such a good guy! I instantly felt affection for him and wanted to see how his choices would fair. It was rewarding to see him make a connection with the first person that’s caught his eye in quite some time.

Jade Carson was a bit abrupt at first but we could see through her bluster to the heart of gold underneath.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves a sweet romance filled with a whole lot of heart.

A grieving biker. A love jaded attorney. Can they heal each other's wounds?

Since the death of his patch brother, Kingdom has felt nothing but rage and loss. Until, he meets Sage on a trip to a tattoo shop to get fresh ink for his fallen brother. She’s sexy. Brilliant. And exactly the kind of challenge that makes him ache. If asked whether he deserves her, Kingdom's straight-up answer would be, hell no. But, nothing will stop him from taking what’s his. Not even her.

Being a no-nonsense defense attorney, the second Sage caught her fiancé cheating she'd sworn off men. While breaking that rule for a tatted up member of an MC seems like a monumentally bad idea, she can’t fight her attraction to Kingdom. When he invites her on a ride, she finds herself wanting so much more. Sage yearns to indulge in one of the sexiest and most dangerous men she's met, but fears risking her battered heart.

Can the unlikely pair help each other move on from the wounds of the past? Or will club tensions with a rival MC find a way to use their weaknesses against them?


An explosive connection when opposites attract! With book one in The Demon Squad MC series Monique Moreau brings the heat in spades when a biker meets his match in a sexy defense attorney. The writing style came across as a little unpolished at first, but it smoothed out and I was hooked by a few chapters. I ended up rooting for them throughout and look forward to another trip with a Demon!

Kingdom is addictive. He’s hot, he’s raw and he’s hurting. I enjoyed seeing him come to life and heal during the story.

Sage is a fun character. The one least likely to hang with an MC yet it really works for her.

I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a motorcycle club romance with a lot of drama beneath the passion. This club has potential!
