Their sizzling chemistry

could burn them both!

What clashes in the boardroom

combusts in the bedroom!

Working at her late ex-husband’s company, socialite Astrid Sterling finds new purpose. If only star architect Clay Morgan would give her a chance instead of the cold shoulder. But a truce that explodes into blinding passion leaves Astrid breathless—and torn. The single dad already has trust issues—and Astrid has a secret that could shatter everything they’ve built…


With book two in The Sterling Wives series Karen Booth delights her reader with another tempting read filled with undeniable chemistry, explosive secrets and love that’s worth risking it all for. The characters were quick to pull me into their story and I enjoyed every minute of it. The ending was a little rushed, but I’m sure the last in the trilogy will wrap them all up well. Looking forward to Miranda’s story!

Astrid just might end up being my favorite Sterling wife! In the first book you got the feel that she might be a little flighty and troublesome, but watching her step into her own as she started settling in with the company and her new friends she begins to shine. Her attraction to Clay is unexpected but delish!

Clay is a hardworking single dad with a chip on his shoulder from his past heartache. It wasn’t easy for him to let Astrid in, but when he finally started to it melted my heart.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves drama, secrets and steaming hot chemistry mixed into your romance. Really enjoying this series and looking forward to more.

When her identity’s exposed,

hiding on a lawman’s family ranch is her last hope.

After her mother is killed, Melissa Morgan’s shocked to learn she’s spent her life in witness protection. Now it’s US marshal Miles Avery’s job to keep her and her little boy safe. And with a mole in his agency, the only way to evade the killer is to hide Melissa on Miles’s family ranch…and pretend she’s his wife for the holidays.


Danger is lurking within their midst! With the second book in her Cowboy Lawmen series Virginia Vaughan brings her reader a non-stop bout of suspense in TEXAS HOLIDAY HIDEOUT. The characters and plot quickly held my attention and the danger on their heels throughout the story made it fast paced and exciting. I really enjoyed Melissa & Miles!

Melissa is easy to sympathize with. She had no clue she had spent her whole life in witness protection until her mother was murdered by the very people she had testified against. Now in their crosshairs, Melissa will do anything to keep her son safe.

Miles is the US Marshall assigned to take Melissa and her son on the run to outwit the mole that seems to be giving out her whereabouts within the Marshall system. He never expects to fall for her while he’s keeping her alive.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a fast paced mystery with high intensity action in a faith based romance.

She knows what she saw…

Can he believe her?

Detective Jack McTavish can’t afford another slipup. So when artist Greta Renault claims to have witnessed a murder without a shred of evidence, he’s tempted to walk. Jack’s gut propels him to pursue this case—and his attraction to Greta. Soon, not only is his job on the line, but Greta’s life is, too…and only Jack can keep her safe.


Exciting twists and turns will keep you on your toes in the latest from Anna J. Stewart! With book four in her Honor Bound series we get to catch up with Jack McTavish as he gets back into the swing of things and faces a possible murder. I really enjoyed GUARDING HIS MIDNIGHT WITNESS!

Jack is determined to do right by his first case when he gets back to work, but he’s not sure his caller truly saw what she thinks she saw. He sets out to investigate on his own to find out.

Greta seems so sure, but as she shares some of her past, we’re not sure whether to believe her thoughts or not. She’s an easy character to sympathize with.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a mystery with danger mixed in as a couple who has instant spark finds their way closer to each other.

There's nothing Truman Gritt won't do to protect his family—Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. When he's finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother's overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she's left behind. Truman's hard, he's secretive, and he's trying to save a brother who's even more broken than he is. He's never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he's less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people's lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman's dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he'll be faced with his toughest decision yet.


An emotional story of love in many forms that will tug at your heart strings time and again! In proof that Melissa Foster’s stories can be read as stand-alones, TRU BLUE has been on my TBR pile since it was released several years ago but book after book in the series released that I read before going back to this first one. I finally told myself I had to get Truman in before his brother Quincy’s story is released, and I fell in love with the characters all over again by going back to this first book in The Whiskeys series. It’s emotional, loving and so touching.

Truman stole this reader’s heart as soon as the ordeal he has lived through all of his life begins to unravel. We learn of his family disfunction, the crime he went to jail for that he didn’t commit, and why the secrets he holds close to his heart mean so much to him.

Gemma is a sweetheart and won my approval as soon as she reaches out to help this clueless guy with two babies in his care. She’s lived a totally different life than Tru, but she sees him like no one else ever has.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes their heart to be wrenched a bit while working their way towards that happily ever after in a romance.
