Roxy Ark has loved Reece Anders since she was a teenager but was always firmly in the friend category, at least until last year. Roxy and Reece had a less than successful one night stand, something which now has them barely speaking to each other. But all bets are off when Roxy discovers that she has a stalker. Reece has no intention of standing back, he’s going to do all he can to protect Roxy and convince her to give them a chance to be together.

 

Fall With Me by Jennifer L. Arementrout surprised me. This one wasn’t on the top of my to-be-read stack but once I started reading BAM! I was totally addicted and couldn’t stop myself from reading through the night. Sexy, protective and downright yummy, I think I love Reece. You can’t go wrong with  Fall With Me!

Lyndsay De Luca has loved Will Sweet from afar for years, even if she hasn’t admitted it to herself. In fact, she’s even based the hero of her soon to be published romance on him. Will hasn’t let anyone in his heart since the death of his high school sweetheart. She died in an accident he blames himself for. When Will finally notices Lyndsay as something more than a friend and they begin to date, she’s not sure how to tell him about the book. For Will, he finds dating Lyndsay a surprise, she’s the first woman to tempt him to want more. But can he let go of the guilt and start a new life with Lyndsay?

 

I truly enjoy Emma Cane’s stories. I love her characters and delight in following them on their journeys. I have very varied reading habits and she is my must read author when I am looking for warmth and laughter.  Ever After at Sweetheart Ranch is a romance that is perfect for that day when you really need a great story with a feel good happy ending.

Julian is the Nightkind King after taking over as the heir from his sire. Julian trusts very few people, so he isn’t really surprised when an attempt to over throw him happens.  What does surprise him is who is behind the actions and just how the coup is taking place.  Now, two of the few people that Julian let into his life have been harmed: one, his right hand man, and the other, the woman he all but gave his heart to.

 

Melisande (“Melly”) is the heir to the Light Fae Queen, and she is a mostly light hearted person.  When Melly is kidnapped by someone she considered a friend, her first reaction is that it must have been a mistake or a way to get her mother’s attention.  However, as Melly’s personal nightmare goes on, she understands that not only was her taking intentiona,l but that it has absolutely nothing to do with her mother.  No, she has been taken to be bait to the one man that Melly thought she could love with her entire heart until, for some reason, he turned her away without hearing her side.

Julian was about to start his hunt of the instigator of coup for his crown when he is contacted by the Light Fae Queen and then discovers that Melly has been taken.  Julian might not believe Melly ever loved him now, but he will do anything to protect her and save her from the mad woman who has her—even give himself up.  The nightmare just gets worse as Melly finds out that Julian is willing to surrender himself for her safety.  Teamwork is how Julian and Melly escape and make it to Julian’s home, only to discover that the coup has taken another turn that could lead to yet more innocent deaths.  During this time, when it should be the darkest time for both Julian and Melly, they discover that their love is stronger than ever, and then they discover the betrayal which led to the misunderstandings and hurt feelings.  In one drastic day and night, Julian and Melly find a way to not only permanently end the coup and stop anyone who might think to restart it, and they also deal with any barrier to their love forever.

Royalty comes in many shapes and sizes when you are dealing with the Elder Races.  Two of these examples are the Nightkind King, an old Roman soldier, and a Light Fae Princess and heir to the crown, an actress who loves life—not exactly a twosome you would expect to be a couple.  Yet, Julian and Melly will prove just how wrong you are in Midnight’s Kiss.  I wondered just how the attempted coup would go on after reading the prior book in the series where it began, and I also wondered just how Julian would react.  Vampires are long-lived, and you would think they would remember that Romans took over the majority of the known world during their time for a good reason.  I wasn’t at all surprised by how Julian took the coup and the harm to his friends, yet even I was surprised at how he reacted when Melly was drawn into the danger. Even more enjoyable was watching as a person who seemed like a lightweight prove just how well she was matched to her lover, Julian.  I loved watching as they not only overcame the betrayal that tore them apart years ago, but also seamlessly teamed up to kick butt and take names and heads to defeat any and all risk to the Nightkind.  Even better, I had to smile as yet another relationship was given the chance to heal for Julian at the end of the book.  Midnight’s Kiss is full of action, danger, and passion almost from the first page to the last. For me, it was a story that I read in one sitting just because I couldn’t stop turning the pages.  I will bet that you will love Julian and Melly by the time you turn the last page. I know I did.

Gretchen Petty is a ghost writer.  Her current writing job is boring her to tears but she needs the money.  When a strange job falls into her lap she is skeptical but cannot afford to turn it down.

 

Hunter Buchanan is a real-estate tycoon.  He’s scarred badly and because of that he lives much like a recluse.  When he spots Gretchen he is enamored and must learn more about her. What does a rich man do when he wants something…he creates a fascinating job for her of course.

 

Gretchen moves into Hunter’s home to complete her “job.”  She finds the elusive Hunter to be an interesting enigma she cannot wait to figure out.  How will she feel about Hunter when she figures out he hasn’t exactly been open and honest with her?

 

Clare’s Beauty and the Billionaire is a great read.  I’m a big fan of the “beauty and the beast” trope.  Hunter is very much the gruff solitary billionaire used to getting his own way.  I love the feistiness in Gretchen and how she stands up to Hunter and shows him the power of love and how to overcome a torturous past!

Bronte Dawson would be enjoying her trip to the Bahamas a lot more if she had brought a different guest.  When news hits that a hurricane is on the way and everyone should begin evacuating Bronte is ready to go. Unfortunately, a misplaced passport lands her stuck in an elevator with a stranger.

 

Logan Hawkings picked the wrong weekend to take a much needed break and visit his latest acquisition, a resort. A blasted hurricane leaves Logan stuck in an elevator with a sexy woman.  On the plus side she doesn’t know he’s a billionaire.

 

Bronte and Logan work their way out of the elevator to discover the resort in disarray and it appears they are the only people left on the island.  How will they survive and pass the time until help arrives?

 

I really enjoyed Author Jessica Clare’s first Billionaire Boys Club novel. Bronte is a great character. She is exactly the type of woman that Logan needs in his life.  It’s unfortunate that their relationship begins with lies on his part.  Although, I understand his need to be loved for more than his money.

 

Logan and Bronte’s time together on the island is beautiful and entertaining. It’s amazing how quickly you get to know people when you are stranded on an island.  Something about tropical islands and sexy couples make me swoon. Stranded With A Billionaire is a lovely romance.
