Until We Touch

The Fool's Gold series is a long-standing contemporary series revolving around the fictional town of Fool's Gold, California. This entry stars former football player Jack McGarry and his personal assistant Larissa Owens. Normally “friends to lovers” is a favorite storyline of mine, but this book ...

Play

It's no secret I have a soft spot for bad boys, fictional and in real life. Not actual bad guys of course, just ones who have a little bit of a wild side. Happily, Play, the second book in the Stage Dive series, delivered just the hero I've been looking for. When Anne Rollins is in ...

Hell for Leather

The concept of good guy tough biker dudes totally had me excited so I waded into this book hoping for a fun action-adventure romance. What I got instead was a big, fat disappointment.The Black Knights Inc is a covert, privately run government defense company. The Knights assist Uncle Sam in g ...

Devil’s Game

The Devil's Jacks and the Reapers are two rival motorcycle clubs who pretty much hate one another's guts. In recent years they have coexisted in a fragile sort of detente, with each party not backing down, but neither committing acts of aggression. Until now.There's been unrest betwee ...

High Seduction

The Adrenaline Search and Rescue series is aptly named. Not only does the romance sizzle, but the action sequences provide plenty of heart pounding suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure through the Canadian Rockies.Erin Tate is a helicopter pilot for Lifeline, an elite search and rescue ...

Hard As You Can

It’s so refreshing to read a romantic suspense novel in which the suspense and romance are balanced well without either seemingly tacked on as an afterthought. Though at times a bit far-fetched, Hard As You Can delivers plenty of action coupled with actual relationship development. ...

A Ranch to Keep

Fairly boring and predictable, A Ranch to Keep follows the standard formula of a big city girl moving to a remote location and rediscovering life and love among nature’s beauty and a simpler way of life. It’s a formula that works well for me if the story has characters to love and watch grow thr ...

Bound By Night

Vampire romances have become passé in recent years, falling out of favor for new and shiny creatures such as demons, angels, werewolves, and the like. Post-Twilight the sub-genre has become rife for mockery and parody and, given some of what has been published, for good reason. I’m pleased to say ...
