Leslie North’s The Tycoon’s Convenient Bride is a sweet and sexy read. A tropical vacation leads to a blistering relationship filled with a special surprise, speedy wedding and an HEA. Billionaire Anthony Charles Harrington V travels to Fiji to come to terms with the path his life is headed down.  He’s 32 and according the family he must marry and produce an heir by 33. When he goes home he must enter an arranged marriage.  Nurse Diana Tinsley is in Fiji on a relief mission. One misunderstanding leads to the hottest week of her life! Fast Forward two months and Tony opens the door of his castle to discover Diana…two months pregnant. 


Tony and Diana sizzle as they reignite the passion between them but both are uncertain about their future.  Their journey is fun and angsty. I enjoyed these two characters. They dealt with emotions as I can imagine a lot would in the situation. The Tycoon’s Convenient Bride is a great short read. It will keep you interested until the end. I was able to read in one sitting. If you are a fan of instalove and surprise babies you will most likely enjoy Leslie North’s The Tycoon’s Convenient Bride.

Investigative Journalist Phoebe Danvers finds herself in a bit of hot water. It’s a good thing former FBI Agent turned PI Huxley Carson has his eyes on her. Author Hope Jones’ Surrendering to Him begins quickly with feisty banter between the hero and heroine as well as suspense. 

I was really into their story at first.  Phoebe and Huxley share plenty of chemistry but unfortunately somewhere in the middle things began to fizzle and lost my attention. I usually like instalove but something about Huxley’s control of the situation and the way he treated Phoebe like they were already together. It was too much too soon. I found myself more eager to read the suspense parts than the actual romance part of the story.

Disgusted with the corruption caused by a fellow Councilman bear shifter Regales Colearian travels to Stone Ridge, Colorado.  The Councilman would like to interview Alpha Declan and members of his pack who uncovered the illegal activities. He’d also like to talk to some of the shifters rescued from the clutches of scientists experimenting on them.  The bear shifter won’t stop until everything wrong is exposed.

Navy Seal Armand Theodore Conway flies to Colorado to check on his fellow military buddy Hess who’s supposed to be dead.  His many and varied skills convinced him that Hess wasn’t really dead and Theo is going to find out why he faked death. And, Hess doesn’t know it yet but Theo is well aware of the paranormal world.

The pack decides to throw an inpromptu welcoming BBQ for the visiting Councilman and also invites the flock they’d recently saved from one of the scientists’ facilities.  Since Theo is staying with the flock he’s also invited to the party.  

Regales is over 400 years old,old; set in his ways and the last thing he wants especially right now with all the council problems is a mate.  But,But once he scents Theo all bets are off. The Navy Seal knows about shifters, mates not so much and he’s not gay. Talk about a mess of major proportions.
The long running popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series brings its 43rd story to life with Enticing his Navy Seal.  Fans love each and every story in this series because the characters are always engaging, fresh and complex.  There’s a camaraderie that enhances each storyline and somehow makes the characters relatable. Enticing his Navy Seal gives Regales and Theo almost insurmountable issues to deal with.  Watching them untangle the mess is extremely entertaining.
