What happens when a hellraiser turned hot cop is stuck with a headstrong heiress he’s determined to protect...and resist?

A run-away bride, wearing a freakin’ tiara, and carrying a stolen lion cub, of all things. This was not how rowdy, bad-boy-turned-small-town-cop, Zander Landry expected his day to go.

He really didn’t expect his night to end with her sleeping in his bed after her near-kidnapping.

But his intense attraction to her and the feelings of protectiveness she stirs up? Oh, yeah, he knew those were coming.

She’s stunning, whip-smart, and trouble with a capital T.

Which means, he needs her to head right back the way she came. ASAP.

His town is exactly the way he wants it . . . crazy and trouble free.

Well, the crazy trouble he’s not related to anyway.

Stranded in a tiny town in her half-million-dollar wedding gown with no money and no place to go . . . today is going pretty much exactly the way Caroline Holland expected it to.

But the grumpy, tattooed, oh-my-god hot cop being the answer to all her problems isn’t at all what she expected.

Now that she’s turned all the criminal (and obnoxious) info about her exotic-animal-dealing ex-fiance over to Zander, she can kick back in a hammock with some sweet tea and relax.

Or not.

Turns out Caroline’s not the spoiled heiress Zander thinks she is. The gorgeous hellion wants in on the action and soon discovers just how dirty things can get in the bayou. And the bedroom.

More and more, Zander just wants her safe on the sidelines. But Caroline isn’t going anywhere until justice is done.

It’s a clash of wills that’s gonna get hotter than a crawfish boil in July. And the most fun the Landry family has had watching sparks fly since . . . well, the last book.

  Every return trip to Autre is guaranteed to please! Erin Nicholas keeps on delighting her readers with joyful love stories filled with laughter, heart and family goodness in her Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild series and I personally hope this family lasts forever in her literary future! SAY IT LIKE YOU MANE IT brings us the long awaited romance for family cop Zander when a gorgeous runaway bride steps into town. The hijinx are hilarious, the sexual chemistry is off the charts HOT and the goodness pours from this family every single time we are around. I would have liked to have seen Caroline’s family be brought into the story and understood more, but overall a great plot and lots of love and laughter taking place.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys humor, heart and overbearing family members mixed into your sexy romance. This series is hilarious and such a feel good setting!

Theodore Edward Sims was supposed to be my hot summer hook-up, a stranger I slept with in Hawaii. Now, he’s my stepbrother’s new hockey teammate.

When we met, Theo was a sexy surfer in Maui, riding waves by day and rocking my world at night. After being played for a fool by my ex-fiancé, Theo proved to be a source of instant gratification.

He was refreshingly honest, engaging, and incredibly charming. Theo built me up when it felt like my world was crumbling down.

Turns out, he’s just like my ex. A liar.

To avoid the gossip of my failed engagement, I hightail it to Boston, where I’m forced to cross paths with a new version of Theo, aka Eddie Sims, Boston Hawks right wing. Here, he isn’t the well-connected, alluring surfer but a determined, angry hockey hunk with something to prove. Especially to me.

Except I’ve written him off. Once a liar, always a liar.

But Theo isn’t backing down. Instead, he’s hustling for my forgiveness. If I give him another chance, will he live up to his apologies? Or am I just lying to myself?

 

Full of humor, heartwarming family moments and a whole lot of sassy goodness! THE HUSTLER is the eighth book in Gina Azzi’s Boston Hawks Hockey series and brings us Eddie Sims’ story. It turns out Sims has a bit of an alter ego and watching him finagle his way into the woman’s heart that he irritated to no end with his secrets is fun to watch. It’s always a blast to see the previous couples in the series pop into scenes again. Loving this series!

Sofia’s character brings so much emotion and depth to the story, so it’s easy to adore her from the start.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to someone that enjoys a hockey connection with so much warmth, love and friendship rallying around through thick and thin adding ambiance to the story line.

Nicu

I am Nicu, the savage heir of the Romanian mafie Lupu clan.

I love rules: following them, imposing them, enforcing them.

As the last son of the Lupu clan, I would never dishonor our name or tarnish our reputation. But Jewel is neither mafie, nor a virgin.

With no rules to temper my savage nature, it’s no hold’s bar when it comes to her.

And the fact that she’s my fiancée’s best friend?

Means absolutely nothing to me.

Jewel

I made a terrible mistake, hooking up with my best friend’s fiancé. Those frosty blue eyes and dominant nature were a deadly combination I couldn’t resist.

Not only do I loathe the traditional mafie culture he comes from, but guilt over my mistake is eating me up inside.

I threw him out, swearing to myself that it would never happen again.

There’s just one problem…he won’t leave me alone.

I have a stalker on my hands, only I’m not sure I hate it.

 

Riveting from start to finish! The third book in The Lupu Chronicles picked up at an emotional high and held my attention throughout. THE SAVAGE HEIR by Monique Moreau continues the Romanian mafia series as the final brother continues his hot-headed dive into lust and gritty family business. I loved Jewel and Nicu together, but I wanted a bit more development of their storyline once they were truly a couple. Overall this series has been quite entertaining with emotional highs and dramatic lows. I hope to see books for Sebastian and Emma one day, and am looking forward to Tatum coming up next.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys the passion and tension of a mafia type read with a close knit family and the love they bring into it.

Meet Monique Moreau

Growing up in New York City, I used to walk the hot pavements in the melting heat of the long summers, and dream. Uptown to downtown, eastside to the westside, and underground to catch a subway racing out into the boroughs.

During my wanderings, my magic pencil spun out fantasies full of romance, with first meetings, heartbreaks, and reunions. Sometimes my boy crush (unrequited, of course) starred as the hero.

I grew up, and after a stint in art school, became a lawyer ‘cuz a woman’s got to make a living. I came from parents who fled to France as refugees, and as an attorney, I dedicated my work to helping survivors of trauma and persecution.
I believe in them. In their grit, in their determination to hold on, to pull through and, somehow, someway, to keep themselves intact, body and soul.

Perhaps that is why I am drawn to writing stories of men and women who live through heart-rending pain, desperate yearnings and, ultimately, reach a place of redemption.

For a long time, I fought the urge to veer off the expected, safe path until I couldn’t go on unless I took a chance and made a change. I began to write, stopped, and began again. Finally, I gave in and here I am.

Come join me on my journey…

A one-night stand gone wrong?

Michael
Being traded after fighting with your coach on air isn’t exactly a good look.
With one mistake under my belt, I knew I needed to focus on the game and nothing else.
But everything changed when I went to pick up my niece and came face-to-face with my very pregnant one-night stand from six months ago.

Jillian
Two pink lines changed all my plans.
So did the guy I had a one-night stand with, a man who made me laugh and smile, a guy who I called to share my unexpected news with, only to find out his number was no longer in service.
Once more let down by the opposite sex, I figured I was doing this on my own.
Then one day, I was staring into the eyes of the man I hated, the father of my baby.

All it took was only one mistake to change everything.

 

Fast paced and utterly delightful! With a breathtakingly adorable meet-cute, Natasha Madison brings Michael and Jillian’s love story to life with a whole lot of sass and camaraderie in ONLY ONE MISTAKE. Though light on hockey action, this story is heavy on family goodness and humor. I really enjoyed every minute!

Jillian is a sweetheart and watching her get pushed into the spotlight by her overpowering sister was endearing. She’s goodness and light all rolled into one adorable bundle.

Michael is an all-around good guy and he brought a solid character forward no matter what the situation.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with tons of heart, humor and indulgence.

The first time he kissed me, we kept it a secret.
Tanner and I have been at each other’s throats ever since.
The second time he kissed me, I told myself not to fall.
I should have known something burned beneath the surface and I couldn’t resist him.
The third time led to something more and now one positive test later, neither one of us can walk away.
Only when his past sheds light on every difference we’ve chosen to ignore, we’ll have to fight for each other, or lose everything before we’ve even had a chance.

 

A bittersweet goodbye! I have really enjoyed Carrie Ann Ryan’s On My Own series, so it’s both exciting and disappointing to devour this last book in the series. Tanner and Natalie both have a backstory that adds a bit of drama to their relationship and the back drop of the friends we’ve already seen fall in love and settle in is always a delight. I wish there were more roommates!

Tanner has always been brusque and steadfast, and he still is even as his relationship starts to develop with Natalie. I think his past relationship should have been developed a whole lot more than it was, but I enjoyed him very much as a character.

Natalie needed a bit more of that girls time that we saw a lot more in the previous books to show her strength in the ongoing friendships that really made this series, but her connection with Tanner kept her solid and interesting.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a college age romance that has two groups of friends who start coupling up and bringing a relationship aspect to what was a long running friendship as each finds love.

I always knew I’d marry my first everything, Declan Yaeger, the Southern boy with Irish roots. That was before he became my first heartbreak, a NHL superstar with a playboy reputation I no longer recognize.

The summer he left our small, Tennessee town, to pursue his hockey dream is the summer my life changed. That was seven years ago, before he became a defenseman for the Boston Hawks. Before I became a hardened, desperate woman, trying to survive.

To protect my grandfather's legacy, I agree to marry my oldest childhood friend, Henry. But when I enter the Church on my wedding day, the grey eyes piercing mine aren’t my fiancé’s.

They’re Declan’s, the last person I expect to show up with an offer of his own. One I can’t refuse even though my heart should know better than to accept.

Will my marriage to Declan heal the broken between us? Or are we destined to repeat the mistakes of our past?

 

A high intensity, emotional reunion! Gina Azzi is knocking it out of the park time and time again with her Boston Hawks Hockey series and I just can’t get enough. The seventh book in the series THE TRAILBLAZER brings a reunion of first loves when Declan sweeps in to save the day for Vivi and all of those old feelings for his first love come flooding back.

Declan is successful and accomplished in his hockey world and doesn’t even realize he’s missing a defining part of his life until he reconnects with the one that got away.

Genevieve never expects the love of her life to come roaring back in just when she needs him most. She still holds a grudge for the way things ended, but there are aspects that Dec doesn’t even know about.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit hockey team who are there to support each other as each guy finds “the one”.

EXCERPT

 

“You may kiss the bride,” Father Ward announces after Declan and I exchange the rings that Mrs. Cleary delivered to the church upon hearing the news.

 

Declan’s hands find my waist and I suck in a breath, already dizzy from the rows of people staring at us, straining to catch a glimpse of our union, one built on past hurts and future hopes.
The corner of Declan’s mouth quirks up. His eyes blaze, not with the confusion of earlier, but with a yearning I feel bone-deep. His lips part, my chin tips upward, and so slowly I can hear the pounding of my heart, we move. We lean toward each other, pulled by an invisible tug that always existed between us.
“Vivi,” he breathes out, his words feathering over my lips. Then, his mouth is on mine, and I’m transported to the past.
I kiss Declan to secure our marriage in front of our town. But his lips won’t caress mine after this. His kiss is too dangerous, too potent. It has the power to make me believe in things I know aren’t true. Like love and futures, like white houses on hills and baby giggles. Like all the plans we once dreamed up, when we were young and in love and so sweetly naïve.
But for right now, this one moment…
I close my eyes, I part my mouth, and I kiss Declan Yaeger the same way I did when I was twelve. With hope and heart and heat.

Maybe he’ll unwrap her heart.

Instead of his winter wonderland wedding, Riley Stewart has been jilted. This rodeo champ needs an understanding shoulder, so Riley invites his best friend, Lucy Snyder, her son and their scruffy pooch on his “honeymoon.” But moonlit doggy walks, romantic fires, the glow of Christmas lights—everything is conspiring against their “just friends” resolve. Will this fake honeymoon ignite the real spark Riley and Lucy have denied for so long?

 

A holiday getaway like no other! With the second book in her Top Dog Dude Ranch series Catherine Mann brings the heart of a friendship to life when two best friends who have been burned by love get taken in by the magic of a winter wonderland and start wondering “what if?” in THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS RETREAT. The holiday ambiance is magical and the characters are a joy to get to know.

Riley is a sweetheart. I loved his outlook on life and his devotion to Lucy.

Lucy revolves her entire world around making her son the most well-adjusted kid as possible and it shows with what a little doll he is.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a small town romance filled with friendship, love and happily ever afters with a whole lot of adorableness mixed in.

Excerpt

A bloodcurdling shriek split the air.

Riley bolted from the elevator, recognizing that scream all too well. The same scream Lucy had let loose the one and only time he’d managed to get her to ride a horse.

He hoped this shout didn’t end in stitches.

Charging ahead past his apartment to hers, he embraced the distraction from mess he’d made of his own life. He rang the doorbell once as a courtesy only, before pulling out his key to her place. He pushed the door open to…mayhem.

Pickles was running in circles, barking up a storm. George sat in the middle of a pile of Christmas tree lights and ornaments, tinsel in his red curls. Lucy scooped up the dog, both of them covered in frosting. Tears sheened in her green eyes as Pickles licked icing from her cheek.

Her chin quivered.

Oh man. He wrapped her in a hug, his chin resting on the top of her head. “What happened, Lucy?”

“Nothing. I’m fine.” Dog smooshed between them, she held on tight, whispering against his chest in a rambling litany. “I don’t want George to see me upset. He knocked over the tree and I thought he was hurt, but he’s okay and Pickles ate half of the cake and I don’t have time or ingredients to make another one and—”

“Okay, Lucy. Take a moment to step back and catch your breath. I’ve got this.” He took Pickles from her, the back of his hand brushing her breast.

He froze. Her eyes shot up to his. Pink crept up her cheeks until her freckles almost disappeared.

And just that fast he was blindsided by a deluge of sensations: the scent of Lucy’s wavy red hair, the soft feel of her body. A whiff of her cinnamon perfume.

Sure, he’d harbored a crush on her long ago, but it was just that. An infatuation. He valued her friendship too much to risk acting on something as transient as sex…

Sometimes love grows in the darkest of places…

One tragic night took the only good thing in my life from me and set me on a new path. A path that eventually led me here, to the Kings of Mayhem Motorcycle Club in Tennessee.

They call me Doc because that is what I am, even if the law says I can’t be. I’m inked head to toe, ride a Harley and wear a cut, but my love for medicine is the blood in my veins.

I don’t need liquor and I don’t need women. By choice, I haven't touched a woman in years. Guilt has shaped me into a lonely figure. Love is a fable and touch makes me uncomfortable.

But when a rival club decides I have what they need and abduct me off the street, I come face to face with the last damn thing I need—the woman of my dreams.

She’s the enemy. The daughter of our biggest rival. The odds are against us, yet I’m drawn to her like a moth to the flame. I don’t like to be touched but I want her to touch me.

Chances are I’m not getting out of this alive. But when I have her in my arms, I can’t help but feel like my life is just beginning.

Sometimes love can grow in the darkest of places.

But then again, it can crash and burn too.

 

Dramatic danger and delectable characters steal the show! DOC is the 2nd book in Penny Dee’s Kings of Mayhem MC Tennessee series and does not disappoint as danger comes knocking and doesn’t let up throughout. Really enjoying this series!

Doc has a strong back story that really endears him to a reader’s heart early on in this book.

Lily is mysterious and quirky, but I liked her from the start.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys an MC romance with lots of drama, more heart than you’ll know what to do with and a genuinely close knit group of guys finding their happily ever after one guy after the next.

EXCERPT

“You don’t seem concerned.”
“Concern walked out the door with gullibility and trust when I realized I’d been abducted off the street by a psychopath because he wants me to help his fugitive wife give birth. Your father hasn’t said one goddamn word of truth since I’ve been here. There’s no way he was ever letting me leave.”

“Then why aren’t you doing something about it?”

“I am.”

“What?”

He walks over to me. His face is tight, his eyes dark. “Now why would I go and tell you something like that?”

His words and tone stun me, but it’s the sharp distrust in his eyes that get me.

I’m trying to help him, but he’s acting like I’m trying to extract his teeth without any Novocain.

“I’m trying to help you.”

“Sure, you are.”

I take a step back and fold my arms. Last night, I slept in his arms. Today, his walls are firmly up, and the look of contempt is back in those baby blues.

Apparently, our truce is over.

“You still think I’m a part of this, don’t you?”

I’m not going to be wounded by his distrust. In fact, I couldn’t care less. Besides, I get it. In his shoes, I’d probably feel the same way. And we’re not friends. Hell, I don’t think I even like him.

Okay, that’s not true. My body likes him, obviously, because every time he’s close to me, I want to get naked, sink into his warm aura, and make out with him, and clearly, my body is desperate to get laid. After all, it’s been what? Three years?

He stands in front of me, and I can’t help but notice the long lashes that fringe the deep blue of his eyes. When he talks, dimples appear on either side of his mouth, and dammit, if I don’t want to kiss those dimples as much as I want to kiss those lips.

Despite hating him.

“I know what you’re doing,” he says.

Again, the tone of his voice catches me off guard. “Excuse me?”

He moves forward, his face dark with heat and emotion. “Get close to the doctor and lure him in, do what you have to do to make him let down his guard…” He takes another step toward me, and I mindlessly take one backward. Not because I’m scared but because the moment has turned into something tight and exciting. Our eyes lock and an electrical charge buzzes between us as the space separating us disappears. “Be his friend, gain his trust… treat him real good.”

“What are you saying?”

He takes another step closer, but I have nowhere to go. My shoulder blades are already pressed against the door behind me.

“Wrap your arms around him and do what you gotta do… entice him.”

I glare at him.

“Well, here I am, Lily…” his eyes flash, and his face tightens, “… entice me.”

My sensibility screams at me to tell him to back off, but the woman in me can’t rip her eyes off his mouth. My lips part with a shaky breath as my heart pounds against my ribcage. I lick my lips, and his eyes become heavy-lidded as they track the movement of my tongue. I wonder if he’s going to kiss me, and the thought sends a zip of excitement up my spine.

His face comes closer, and I swallow deep, his heat burning like red-hot coal around me.

My eyes close.

I want him to kiss me. Desperately.

I feel his breath against my cheek.

My lips part.

“Isn’t that the plan?” he growls.

The palms of his hands hit the wall either side of my head, caging me in his heat.

“You want to entice me?”

His lips are close to mine. His voice dark and velvety.

“You want to lure me in and… tempt me?

My pulse races in my throat.

I hear him inhale and exhale roughly, and dear god, just kiss me

“Tell me…” His breath sweet as it brushes across my lips. “Just how stupid do you think I am?”

So I may be in the Last Single Man Standing competition with my cousins, but five minutes around Kinsey was all it took to take myself out. Who cares about bragging rights when you’ve just found the woman you’re going to marry? Sure, she may work for my biggest competitor. Sure, she’s not dating right now. Sure, she’s my sister’s best friend and I’ve been sworn off her. But somehow she agrees to go on six fake dates to help me save face in this competition.

What does the guy who never uses his words have to say to convince the girl of his dreams that they’re perfect for each other?

 

Sweet, sassy and sexily satisfying! With the second book in her Last Man Standing series Avery Flynn delights her readers with a strong, silent hero who falls for his unknowing heroine the second he lays eyes on her in NEANDERTHAL. The characters are fun, the plot is fast paced and the overall feel of the book is humorous and full of heart. I can’t wait for Nash’s story!

Griff is socially awkward but such a truly nice guy at heart. It didn’t take long for me to be his biggest fan.

Kinsey is a go-getter who has been knocked down one too many times for being a brilliant young female. She’s determined once and for all to get a leg up in the job she wants.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a fast paced story with easy to relate to characters that always bring laughter and love to the table.

What’s a girl to do when faced with a hurricane, her celebrity crush, and a power outage in their shelter?

Keep her damned feelings to herself. And her clothes on...

Naomi LeClaire is just a small-town girl who loves her quiet, simple life.

Donovan Foster is a sexy, charming, wildlife rescuing internet sensation who loves the spotlight.

What do these opposites have in common?

Only an impossible-to-resist chemistry that, when they’re stuck together in a storm becomes, well, impossible to resist.

But the aftermath of the storm gives them something else in common—a rescue mission to help victims. Oh, and a heat-of-the-moment kiss caught on camera by the local paparazzi. Not to mention an offer for a reality TV show documenting them falling in love while saving animals from crazy, dangerous situations.

Wow, that escalated quickly.

This should be the last thing Naomi is willing to do. But he’s leaving in two months for his next job, so what’s the worst that could happen?

He’s either going to be her greatest adventure. Or this wild whirlwind romance will blow over faster than a Gulf Coast hurricane.

All she can really do is hold on tight . . . and hope her heart isn’t left in shambles.

  Bayou boys, Hot Cake billionaires and Gone Wilders all mixed up in one ridiculously awesome story??? Sign me up over and over again! Erin Nicholas ALWAYS delivers on laughter, heart and steamy sexy times, but with her latest delight in the Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild series she has outdone herself. Just enjoying Naomi and Donovan’s insta-love story would have been rewarding enough, but to have a reunion with some of our Hot Cake friends was a big ol’ bonus that filled this reader’s heart to the brim. Loved this book so hard!

Donovan is sexy, self-assured and has a heart of gold so watching him let his guard down and actually let this crazy family take him under their wing was really fun to see.

Naomi was a really special character to watch develop. She knew she wanted him basically at first sight and when the time was right, she dove right in. I loved their story!

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys laughter, extreme warmth and love overflowing at the seams in their romance. This family is hilarious and we all wish we could be a part of such a group.

 

 

 

 

What’s a girl to do when her celebrity crush needs her to be his fake girlfriend?

Sealed With a Kiss, an all-new romantic comedy filled with heated chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

Keep her damned feelings to herself, of course.

Child TV star turned adult wallflower Naomi LeClaire has vowed never to return to the spotlight. But when she’s stuck in a storm with Donovan Foster, the hot, charming, wild-life rescuing internet sensation, and she finally gives in and kisses him…and a few articles of clothing end up on the floor…suddenly her simple, quiet life is tossed upside down.

Especially after the paparazzi catches a heat-of-the-moment kiss. Now everyone assumes she’s his girlfriend and, when she realizes that’s the best way to keep Donovan out of trouble, Naomi agrees to play along. Even though it puts her center stage with her private life in very public view. Again.

They’re a whirlwind of opposites-attract chemistry the fans love, but they’ll surely blow over faster than a Gulf Coast hurricane. As long as they can keep straight what’s real and what’s just a once-in-a-lifetime fantasy.
