The best Christmas gift…

is a second chance with her!

Cody Jones is a good cowboy with a bad past. But he’s paid for his mistakes and is finally coming home to Barren, Kansas. Only this time, ranch princess Willow Bodine won’t be waiting. She’s gotten engaged to another man: Cody’s enemy. Now Cody must prove that a bad boy cowboy can change his spurs…and become the man Willow truly deserves by Christmas.


A heartwarming story of forgiveness, rediscovery and redemption. With book eight in her always addictive Kansas Cowboys series, Leigh Riker brings us a tainted hero and the one that got away in MISTLETOE COWBOY. The characters and plot drew me into the story quickly and their connection kept me enchanted throughout.

Cody comes into the story needing redemption for the bad he’s done, but I found it really easy to forgive him once we get to know the guy he is now and hear his back story.

Willow was also easy to like and sympathize with, but she was also irritating with the way she let herself be walked over instead of listening to her heart.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance filled with a sexy cowboy, a gentle partner and a happily ever after to write home about.

Her brother’s best friend is hotter than sin and she’s about to show up at his luxury apartment. After a lifetime of good behavior, will Connor Dow be able to resist the ultimate temptation on his doorstep?

In New York, the city that never sleeps, Gabrielle “Brie” Lawson can’t get any shut-eye. Not as a struggling actress and definitely not with her longtime crush, Connor, now so close to her bedroom. The devastating, gorgeous club owner has always been off-limits to her. But given that he’s letting her stay with him, that means…well, he might be open to reworking certain sexual boundaries.

With a little private time, Brie is determined to seduce him, cooking him romantic meals and prancing around in lacy lingerie. He shouldn’t expect a creative beauty to be hemmed in by virtue—or clothing. So it doesn’t take long for Connor to trade some late hours at the office for sultry nights with Brie. He seems tailor-made for her in every way. From his well-ordered life to messing up the sheets, there’s no one else. But would he risk losing his best friend—and his business—for a chance at true love?


Bona fide sexy goodness! With a dashing jaunt into the forbidden Regina Kyle delights all our senses with DIRTY SECRETS. The characters are easy to connect with and delightful, the plot is pure temptation, and the laughter mixed in with pure affection is utterly delightful. There was a slightly too abrupt of an ending, but overall I couldn’t have loved them more!

Brie is pure joy. She’s sweet, she’s smart, she’s successful … and above all else, she loves with her whole heart.

I adored Connor. He is the ultimate version of a sexy nerd and he carried it well.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a heartfelt connection filled with lust, love and deep affection.

Can two strangers…

…become one family?

Designer Sally Harrington falls—literally!—into the arms of a handsome stranger. And, after one spontaneous night, Sally’s life changes forever… She’s pregnant! But there’s another shock to come. Her mystery man turns out to be Prince Edward of Tianlipin! As their two worlds collide and family duty threatens the magic this pair share…there may be one more Christmas surprise coming their way…


A classic case of a gloriously sexy love at first sight! With the second book in the Christmas at the Harrington Park Hotel trilogy, it’s Kandy Shepherd’s turn to bring a magical connection to life as Sally Harrington finds her very own Prince Charming in THEIR ROYAL BABY GIFT. The characters were delightful, their love story was decadently forbidden yet super sweet, and their happily ever after was divine! I can’t wait for Hugo’s story to finish off the series.

Sally is a sweet character. She never expects a trip to Singapore to research gardens for the Harrington to bring the sexiest man she’s ever seen to literally sweep her off her feet.

Edward is refined and dashing and quite the gentleman. Finding out the woman he hasn’t been able to get off of his mind since their one night encounter is now carrying his child is unexpected, but he can’t deny his joy in seeing her again.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a family picking up the pieces from past heartache to bring them together and stronger than ever. The romance is spot on, and the family connection is sweet.
