Salvaging is dangerous work.  Whether it’s a sunken ship or a damaged tanker Burke Matthews and the crew of The Brigadoon are known for being the best.  Currently they are docked near the cruise liner Bella Donna which struck rocks off Palerno on the Amalfi Coast.  If Burke and his team are unable to retrieve the fully loaded fuel tanks the town and the entire surrounding ecosystem will be ruined.

 

An excellent team leader at salvaging, Burke isn’t so wise when it comes to love.  He’s tired of meaningless sex.  A relationship with fellow ship’s officer Trent Moresby didn’t work out.  They’re great in bed, but the emotional bond isn’t there for Burke and ultimately that’s what he wants most.

 

Most of the crew and passengers made it off the Bella Donna safely.  When Burke’s team is given the go-ahead to start work everyone figures that there aren’t any more survivors.  As they begin several bodies are discovered so Burke and his men are thrilled to find missing waiter Gabriel Bergeron clinging to life within the ship.

 

Something passes between Burke and Gabriel the moment they meet.  It’s not simple hero worship Gabriel’s feeling.  As for Burke he’s drawn to the waiter.  Giving the survivor a helping hand is the right thing to do.  Passions explode and emotions unfortunately get the better of everyone involved.  Time is counting down on the salvage job and on their chance for a future.

 

Passion and betrayal detonates.  Moby’s Dick focuses on a challenging romance within the backdrop of a possible environmental disaster.  Technical information goes hand in hand with an unexpected romance in this intelligent tale.  Between dealing with a jealous ex, a news hungry mayor, and a difficult salvage job Burke has his hands full in Moby’s Dick.  Thankfully within the intense drama there are some lighthearted moments to balance the story.  The slow buildup becomes white hot and delivers in Moby’s Dick.

Losing their sub, Peter, to cancer tore holes in the hearts of Dom lovers Treat and Killian.  The tattoo shop owners were finally putting their sorrow to rest and getting on with life when Killian is kidnapped by a madman.  Luckily, Killian is rescued, but not before he is viciously tortured.

 

Treat is beside himself trying to help Killian heal and recover from the ordeal.  Their years together should make them strong enough to come back, but this latest nightmare may be too much for Killian.  Treat is watching him slip away and he doesn’t know what to do anymore.

 

Two bad ass Doms present a tender, tragic tale in Treat.  They’d already gone through hell once, this time we are observers as they attempt to rekindle their relationship after another low blow.  Treat is a raw character driven drama that touches the heart.  Between the steamy scenes and their anguish, Treat is an emotional whirlwind that connects with readers.

Professional nanny Hutchison Sparks feels as though he’s walked into a war zone when he meets a new prospective client and family.  Years of experience with caring for families is clearly desperately needed by the large Conklin clan.

 

Three years ago the Conklin siblings lost their parents in a tragic accident.  The eldest son Adam is a budding academic at the nearby college.  Middle of the pack are Briony a high school senior and Charlie a few years behind.  Next follows the ‘littles’ – Darla who will start first grade and the twins Elizabeth and Felicia barely four.

 

In a small apartment on a strict budget Adam managed to keep his overflowing family together.  He relied on their mother’s best friend and his mentor, Professor Helena Hunter, for moral support and occasional help until her recent death.  She’s left the Conklins her large estate and a huge bucket of money. Adam would trade it all to have Helena back in their lives again.

 

Having enough money to hire Hutch is certainly a godsend.  It’s going to be a huge adjustment for everyone though it’s easy to see that the family needs the added stability.  Even Adam, who’s still reeling from Helena’s death could use a shoulder occasionally.  Over time Hutch realizes he’s falling in love with Adam and his family.  Keeping a professional arms distance will only last so long…

 

Completely enchanting.  A loving, lovely tale.  And Manny Makes Seven absolutely falls under the ‘feel good’ romance heading.  There are realistic family situations, issues and troubles from nasty boyfriends to a case of food poisoning.  Adam and Hutch’s romance unfolds naturally within the confines of this delightful heartwarming story.  An easy, breezy good read, And Manny Makes Seven hit’s the spot.
