Undone by You

The Chicago Rebels series normally focuses on one of the three sisters who own the Chicago Rebels NHL Franchise, but in this novella, Ms. Meader pauses and focuses instead of two of the organization’s gentlemen; the General Manager and a player. It’s a boss/employee story with the added layer of ...

Virgin Territory

Of all the plotlines in Lia Riley's Hellions Angels series, Virgin Territory was the one I was looking forward to the most. And yes, it's absolutely because -- as the title suggests -- this book features a virgin hero. Patrick ‘Patch’ Donnelly is the goalie for the Denver Hellions hockey team ...

Make Me Want

Make Me Want is one of the first books from Harlequin’s Dare line, a new imprint that is meant to be hotter than their others. Since I’m a fan of Katee Robert, I was looking forward to see what she could bring to the range as well as getting an idea of what to expect from the other books. If the ...

A Princess in Theory

Alyssa Cole is such a talented writer. I have liked everything I have read by her so far, and A Princess in Theory is no exception. This is a fanciful story, a modern fairytale, in which the prince of a make-believe African kingdom finds his long-lost betrothed and proceeds to beguile, lose and win ...

Brooklynaire

The blurb for Brooklynaire says ‘standalone’, and it is - technically. There’s nothing in this book that you won’t understand if you’ve not read any of Ms. Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series about this ragtag hockey team from Brooklyn. However, the central relationship has been building th ...
