Feel the drama and passion in the Dynasties: Seven Sins series!

One spectacular night… with an explosive aftermath!
Desire as volatile as theirs has consequences that could last a lifetime…

When a single rapturous night with Sammi Guzman leaves the intoxicating model pregnant, photographer Oliver Lowell is determined to embrace his responsibilities. But his wrath over his father’s numerous betrayals has haunted him for years and leaves Oliver feeling ill equipped for parenthood. Passion has never been his and Sammi’s problem, but will this black sheep tame his demons for good?

Harlequin Desire: Luxury, scandal, desire—welcome to the lives of the American elite.

One man’s betrayal can destroy generations. Fifteen years ago, a hedge-fund hotshot vanished with billions, leaving the high-powered families of Falling Brook changed forever. Now seven heirs, shaped by his betrayal, must reckon with the sins of the past. Passion may be their only path to redemption. Experience all Seven Sins!


Uncensored lust leads to consequences they never expected! With book six in the always sinful Dynasties: Seven Sins series Cat Schield delivers one of my favorites so far in the series when a footloose playboy meets his match and curtails his wild ways. The characters each had intriguing back stories and the passion they ignited was decadent. Looking forward to what the conclusion of this dramatic series has in store for us!

Oliver just might be my favorite of the characters affected by the Black Crescent scandal yet. He’s such a kind-hearted guy and pours his pain and struggles out bit by bit to show us the man he used to be and how far he’s come to put himself back together. I adored him and loved watching him fall for his new future.

Sammi is a sweetheart. She’s worked hard all of her life to try to achieve greatness but just feels like she’s some kind of a Barbie doll playing at life. She has a breakthrough when life throws her the curve of a baby on the way and makes her strive to be the person she really wants to be for that little one.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a dramatic love story filled with passion, angst and happily ever afters.

All he wants for Christmas…

…is her!

Christmas is supposed to be the most magical time of the year. But for single dad and doctor Carter Jacobs, it only holds painful memories. He definitely isn’t looking for romance. Until Carter meets hardworking Dr. Liz Poole. She offers a safe harbor and the promise of a future Carter thought lost to him… As Christmas approaches, might Carter’s happily-ever-after be just around the corner?


Small town charm is hard to resist in this magical holiday romance! With the back drop of Christmas and an adorable little boy in the mix Susan Carlisle was quick to nab my heart in THE SINGLE DAD’S HOLIDAY WISH. Great character interaction, several medical situations to heighten the drama and so many instances of pure holiday joy made this story a winner from start to finish!

Carter had me from hello. A single dad who adores his child, a husband done wrong and a strong thread in the blanket of his community … who could ask for more? Loved him!

Liz was also a great character. She suffered situations in her life that made her doubt her worth even though she was a remarkable woman, so seeing her find her strength and let it shine when she needed it most was breathtaking.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a holiday romance filled with an adorable family in the making and lots of plot thickening moments. I thoroughly enjoyed their story!

A pledge to protect…

That will be tested at the altar!

After tragedy strikes, Daniela Avelar steps up as CEO to her brother’s global yacht empire. But to prevent corporate mutiny, she needs the help of his business partner, Valerio Marchesi.

Little does Daniela know that Valerio has already sworn to keep her safe. And when the tycoon discovers she’s in grave danger, he insists she become his bride! He’ll risk the unavoidable chemistry that sparks every time they lock eyes. Because this engagement of convenience is anything but… It’s a red-hot fire burning out of control!


A passionate story of lust and betrayal! With the first book in her Avelar Family Scandals duet, Amanda Cinelli is quick to enthrall her reader with a story of loss in THE VOWS HE MUST KEEP. The characters were multi-faceted as carriers of the drama for the loss they shared and in holding the reader’s attention as passion began to ignite between them like never before. I’m looking forward to more in the series.

Daniela was quick to draw my sympathy as we met with the news of her picking up the pieces after losing her brother and the added stress of a business takeover in the making if she can’t get his business partner back at the helm to calm the board.

Valerio is a complex character. He’s easy to understand, but difficult to read the depth of his guilt. He eventually tells Daniela why he felt the need to distance himself from the company and steps up to make things right with her.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a fast paced romance filled with equal amounts of romance and strife.
