Pack Enforcer Adam Jamenson brutally lost his mate and unborn babe years ago. He hasn’t been the same since.  Adam’s pack, the Redwoods, are headed for a war with their enemy The Centrals.  The last thing he needs is the complication of an ex-one-night-stand turning his life upside down.

 

Werewolf Bay Milton has a secret that she hopes to keep.  Her one night with the Redwood Pack’s enforcer left lasting consequences and she needs his help desperately.

 

Now they must find a way to deal with each other and defeat the Centrals. Will they find love amid the chaos?

 

Carrie Ann Ryan’s Redwood Pack keeps getting hotter and hotter!  I’ve been intrigued by Adam Jamenson since book one.  He is so emotionally devastated it was hard to imagine him falling in love again.  And then spitfire Bay Milton walked in.  She is one of my favorite characters.  She is strong and simply perfect for Adam.  Enforcer’s Redemption is full of heady emotions, hot sex and splendid romance!

Over 1.5 million books sold so far!In COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER, movie star Smith Sullivan can't afford any distractions. He's staking his entire reputation on his new film...but he can't stop thinking about Valentina Landon and the fire he sees smoldering just beneath the surface.Valentina isn't averse to sensual pleasure, or even to the idea of finding true love, but as a Hollywood business manager she's watched too many smart women fall for actors...only to be torn apart when the fairytale comes to its inevitable end.But when intense weeks together on set turn their heated attraction into red-hot flames of passion, Smith knows he has to find a way to convince Valentina to let him get a little bit closer. Close enough to completely steal her heart...the way she's stolen his from the start. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, sexy romance, bad boys, falling in love)

Movie star Smith Sullivan has worked his entire career to get where he is right now.  He is finally getting the chance to bring his project to life and he is gambling his career on its success.  He found the perfect actress to star in his movie but she comes with a distraction that could cost him everything.

 

Valentina Landon is her very talented sister’s manager.  Her sister is thrilled to be working with mega star Smith but his reputation scares Valentina.  While Valentina was worried what Smith might want to do with her sister she should have been worried how he would affect her.

 

Smith and Valentina find it hard to stay away from each other on set.  He has never felt a connection like the one he feels for Valentina.  She is determined to stay away from him but he is one determined Sullivan and he knows exactly what he wants!

 

Bella Andre keeps her contemporary romance series The Sullivans fresh and irresistible with Come A Little Bit Closer.  I have always been intrigued by Smith Sullivan. We’ve known him as the much touted movie star but with limited interaction.  It is great getting to know him in Come A Little Bit Closer.  He is very determined, seriously sexy and oh, so romantic! The sparks between Smith and Valentina are bright and lasting yet each have reasons for trying to ignore them—at first.

 

The romance between these two is stunning. I could not get enough of them. I’m so impressed by Ms. Andre’s writing.  She has created this family I love visiting and manages to keep each novel beautifully compelling and, most important, captivating.  I will be visiting the family again very soon as I open the pages of Always On My Mind.

One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. Of course, there is a Dom who wants to be in a charge and a sub who wants to challenge him. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.This is an original novella that is approx 32,000 words. It is an interracial military romance with light bdsm.Also includes for the first time in print the Harmless shorts: A Little Harmless Fling, A Little Harmless Kalikimaka, A Little Harmless Surprise and A Little Harmless Gift.

A beautiful wedding brings family and friends together to celebrate.

However, after being wounded months later Kade is unwilling to go there again with Shannon, yet he can’t stand to see her with another man. Can Kade man up or will he watch the woman of his dreams walk into the arms of another? 

Infatuation is overflowing with passion and fire! Kade and Shannon are sizzling together in and out of bed. Shannon is a firecracker and the perfect woman to make Kade toe the line. I just loved Kade’s struggle with jealousy. He so deserved it! I cannot wait to see what happens with the other characters that I have come to love in the Harmless series. It was great to see Mal, Shannon’s brother, again and I hope to read more about Mal and Kade’s other teammate Deke. Even though this is primarily set in New Orleans we still got some glimpses of Hawaii and the Harmless characters we love. Melissa Schroeder’s Infatuation is brimming with romance and it features an ending that is simply swoon worthy.

The Silk Road. In ancient times it was a well-established trade route that began in China. But to Larien, it is the veiled entrance to the underworld where no human belongs. Jayla Protegenu is as typical as they come. She owns a chain of gyms in the San Francisco Bay Area, enjoys popcorn-and-movie night with her two best friends and writes for her local paper. But that's where 'typical' ends. As a child she learned to summon her guardian angels to keep at bay the things that prowled the night. An ability she's kept secret all her life...until a Fallen angel answers her call. Larien is not seeking redemption. He's looking for the artifact that only Jayla can call power from. The woman has no idea of the extent of her abilities and he's not about to teach her. However he is man enough to admit that this human has touched him, soul deep. And now that she is his to protect, his to love, when she's taken Larien will search to the ends of the Earth to find her, from San Francisco all the way to...the Silk Road. For a Fallen that has nothing but time, it is suddenly against him. And now he has to be the good guy? Damn.

Larien is a fallen angel assigned the task to help a human find an ancient relic that only her power can call upon.  Larien’s goal is to quickly complete the duty at hand so he can get away from humans and more importantly live in peace away from everyone.  That is until he comes face-to-face with the beautiful and alluring Jayla Protegenu.  Now, his vow to avoid love at all cost has flown out the window because of his desiring need to claim Jayla, a human nonetheless, as his mate.

 

Jayla Protegenu has always known that she is special because she can beckon her guardian angels to protect her from the things that go bump in the night and most importantly she can read auras.  But, it is not until an extremely hot male appears in her bedroom one night, seeking her assistance on a mission to find a lost mystical artifact that Jayla truly learns the power of her abilities.

 

Silk Road is a fantastic read filled with Angels and Humans and good versus evil.  Readers, I must warn you that Silk Road is not a book to be taken light as a skimmed through type of read, you must pay close attention to the happenings or you will totally miss on how the plot plays out.  Larien is a complicated, ominous, forceful character that has met his match in Jayla.  She is a sassy, strong-willed, confrontational, kick ass heroine who will stand and fight to the end.  There is never a dull moment to be found.  The attraction between Jayla and Larien is instant and fervent.  I so love the passionate chemistry showcased between the couple and I became more drawn into the plot as it progressed.  It was intriguing to see just how the storyline would unfold – if Jayla and Larien would be successful in completing their mission and if they would have a life together after all is said and done.  Overall, I took great pleasure in reading Silk Road.
