Harper, an American school teacher, is swapping lives with a friend in Australia for two weeks.  Having rarely been out of Chicago, life in the Bush is a drastic change.  However, the biggest change is the feelings of lust awakened when Harper spends time with Stockmen Keith and Marc.  Keith and Marc fall hard and fast for the sexy American but she is holding something back from them.  They are determined to soothe Harper’s soul and steal her heart if she’s willing to give them a shot.  Will Harper find love or break two hearts when she heads back to the USA?

 

Misplaced Hands is another great addition to the Foreign Affairs series from Author’s Lexxie Couper and Mari Carr!  I love how this series gives the reader the best of both worlds.  Aussies and Americans come together to make sweet, sinfully sexy love in Misplaced Hands.  I really enjoyed getting to know Harper and watch how she basically swept Keith and Marc off their feet.  I hope there are books to come in the series or an update on the international couples.  I’d love to see what hijinks the characters come up with next.

Rock star Noah Holden is excited to be getting back into the business with his bandmates.  The bands success with icon Nick Blackthorne is known across the world.  Now that they are looking to hit the road again they need a new lead singer.  Since taking a break Noah’s ADHD has been out of control and he hopes making music his number one priority once again will help.  However, it appears a sultry songstress may have the cure for all that ails him.  Waitress, Pepper Kerrigan, overhears the famous Noah Holden talking with his bandmates about a reunion tour.  She wants to try out and challenges Noah to a game of music trivia for the right.

 

Pepper drives Noah wild with her music knowledge and sultry voice.  It becomes impossible for them to ignore the intense attraction between them. When the past comes back to haunt them will they be able to hold on to each other?

 

Steady Beat is sexy and fun. Although part of the Heart of Fame series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  Noah and Pepper have great chemistry from page one.  Their round of music trivia is so hot.  Although I enjoyed most of the novel, I felt like one plot device was a little obvious but it was Peppers actions that befuddled me the most.  Spoiler Alert… I had trouble understanding how she could want something so badly and then seem to discover she was too afraid to do it.  I don’t discount this actually happening but it seemed unlikely for someone so in love with music to react in this manner. While I still love the Heart of Fame series, Steady Beat wasn’t my favorite.

Desire like this wasn’t in the script...Heart of Fame, Book 3Small-screen sex symbol Chris Huntley is on the fast track to becoming the next big action-blockbuster movie star. When his latest movie takes him to Australia for a red-carpet premiere, he thinks he’s ready for anything. But nothing could have prepared him for his raw, carnal response to his Aussie bodyguard. Sexual attraction to a man is a first for Chris. Now he realizes why his relationships with women have never felt quite...complete. Liev Reynolds is comfortable with his bisexuality, but his attraction to Chris is an inconvenience he must ignore. For starters, there’s his professional ethics. Then there’s the long trail of female broken hearts in Chris’s wake. Hard as they both try to keep their minds on their jobs, desire and a little matchmaking tip them over the edge. But Hollywood endings aren’t real life. And when the truth leaks out, their careers aren’t the only collateral damage. Warning: A hunky Hollywood sex symbol. A smoldering, stubborn Australian. A desire so powerful it cannot be denied. A kiss. And a photograph. This isn’t your normal boy-meets-boy story.

Television actor Chris Huntley is heading to Australia for a red carpet premiere of the film that is guaranteed to make him a star.  When he arrives, he is assigned a bodyguard and is knocked to his knees by the feelings the bodyguard inspires.  Liev Reynolds is startled by the feelings of attraction between him and Chris.  Liev is bisexual but he knows that movie star Chris has broken many female hearts. He also knows that it’s his job to protect Chris not seduce him.  Chris may be confused by his feelings but will he be able to deny them?

Lexxie Couper keeps things sizzling in her Heart of Fame series.  Chris and Liev have some serious sexual chemistry between them. I love their attempts at ignoring their feelings they are funny but the union between them is inevitable.  When they finally give in the pages alight with fire.  Guarded Desires is full of heady emotion and hot sex.  Chris and Liev prove that love can conquer all, including fear.

Foreign Affairs, Book Three A forced-sex fantasy is one thing-waking to find a scruffy man binding you to a bed is quite another. Amy fights him, until she realizes her friend must have set up the sexy scenario. They've swapped lives, with Harper flying to Australia and lending her Chicago home to Amy. While she's surprised Harper would go to such lengths to help her fulfill a fantasy, Amy figures...why not? After days of nonstop travel, Andrew arrives at the home he shares with his sister, Harper, with sleep on his mind-until he finds a naked intruder in his bed. Subduing the beauty, he assumes she's the blind date his pal had tried to set him up with. But would Mike actually sneak the woman into Andrew's house? Seems so. And he's not one to turn down such a gift. By the time each has learned the other's identity, Amy and Andrew have shared the most intense sexual experience of their lives. And they certainly don't want to stop now. Inside Scoop: This sexy life-swapping tale includes BDSM with a side of menage. A Romantica(r) contemporary erotic romance from Ellora's Ca

Aussie Amy switches places with her American friend Harper for two fun filled weeks exploring a different part of the world.  Amy didn’t count on awaking tied down naked with a total stranger getting ready to pleasure her.  Amy assumes this is Harper’s big surprise for her. After all it is one of Amy’s fantasies—a fantasy that she only shared with Harper.  How disturbing it is to find out the man she just had the best sex of her life with is none other than Harper’s big brother. 

Andrew is shocked to discover a beautiful young woman naked in his bed. Things get even crazier as he and this woman engage in hot sex.  When Andrew discovers who the woman is he is disturbed to find that his little sister has run off to another country without telling him.  As much as he wants to run after his baby sister and bring her home, there is something about the sexy Aussie Amy that he can’t ignore.  Perhaps they should get the attraction out of their system and enjoy a week of no strings sex.

Will one week between Amy and Andrew be enough? Or will hearts get broken in the pursuit of no strings sex?

Mari Carr and Lexxie Couper continue their Foreign Affairs series with the romantic and sexy Misplaced Lessons.  I’m not a fan of the forced-sex fantasy but it wasn’t so bad here.  Andrew and Amy have such blistering chemistry they definitely heat things up in the bedroom.  There are so many things that I like about these two. Amy aches to travel the world and Andrew does it for a living. I love how he takes her to all kinds of touristy things in his hometown—something that he hasn’t done himself.  Amy and Andrew really romance each other is small ways.  They are both struggling to decipher their own emotions and each others. It is wonderful watching them fall in love. Misplaced Lessons is an absolutely lovely romance. I cannot wait to find out what happened when Harper landed in the land of Oz.
