An oasis of escape
In a life of duty…

Star Soames has one week in Duratra to track down her family’s long-lost diamonds. Facing a fruitless quest, she allows herself an encounter with a gorgeous stranger in the royal palace. But “Kal” turns out to be Sheikh Khalif Al Azhar!

Star awakens a curiosity Khalif hasn’t felt since a tragic accident made him heir to the throne. But surrendering to their attraction is risky when duty decrees he always choose country over their chemistry…


Pippa Roscoe delights in this forbidden romance! With the second book in her Diamond Inheritance series Roscoe continues the journey of three siblings searching for lost family fortune in order to care for their ill mother. The chemistry between Star and Kal was easy to connect with and their journey towards happily ever after was a pleasure.

Star is sweet and pure and doesn’t take her journey lightly, but the attraction she feels for this worldly man tempts her like no other.

Sheikh Khalif is healing from family tragedy and the newfound pressure he has to endure to rule his kingdom and Star is a like a breath of fresh air to him.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to a reader who enjoys a hint of royalty mixed in with emotional turmoil and a sweet romance.

Genevieve Daylee didn’t expect to be standing in front of a judge on her twenty-seventh birthday. But ever since her life became entangled with a former motorcycle gang, she’s learned not to expect anything but trouble.

Her mother, a woman she once admired and adored, is gone, leaving behind a trail of secrets and lies. She’s living in a tiny apartment above a garage owned by her brother, a man who loathes her very existence. And the father she met beside her mother’s grave is as much of a stranger as Isaiah Reynolds, the broken man with soulless eyes standing beside her in front of the judge.

Isaiah is her protector from the murderer at large in Clifton Forge. Though he’s more like a riven knight in dented armor than a prince on a white stallion. She knows next to nothing about him, other than he works as a mechanic. As of tonight, he’ll be sharing her bathroom.

And, according to the judge, Isaiah is now her husband.


Explosive secrets bring answers we weren’t expecting as Devney Perry picks up her Tin Gypsy series with a highly emotional second book, RIVEN KNIGHT. The characters are attention grabbing, the fallout from their actions roars to life and happily ever afters are tested.

Genevieve is easy to like and sympathize with as she enters into the life of this family she didn’t know she had.

Isaiah is a gentle soul who is trying to overcome his past and slowly learn that he deserves a better future than he ever imagined he could have.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys seeing the sins of a motorcycle club come back to haunt them even as they try to live in the straight and narrow.
