Cover designed by Seductive Designs

Devil-may-care rogue Lord Darius Alexander can’t resist a wager. When a game of cards is suggested at the remote inn where he’s stopped for the night, he antes up his family’s savings, certain his Town bronze will give him the advantage. He never expects to lose his fortune to the irritatingly confident, uncommonly beautiful hoyden daring to play with the men. …Nor does he expect to lose his heart.

Caitlin Hart is known for her good sense. When a ridiculous reprobate tosses his savings onto the gaming table, she doesn’t hesitate to divest him of it. But Lord Dare won’t accept defeat like a gentleman. He suggests a compromise, and before long the handsome scoundrel is working back his losses on her small farm. But her neatly plowed fields might be too close for her heart’s content, for soon she finds herself wondering if she can dare him to stay forever when the last of his coin is tucked safely into his pocket.

Bailey Moore and Hudson Kincaid are both survivors.  They’ve lived very different lives, but those early influences are still affecting the way they live today.

Bailey and Hudson meet when Bailey comes to Cedar Ridge to paint a mural about the Kincaid family.  Hudson is against having the mural painted as he feels that part of the family is missing and the part that is in Cedar Ridge is loving, but a bit on the dysfunctional side.

Bailey can’t be persuaded to give up on the idea of the mural as she has always lived a cautious life.  She was diagnosed at an early age with a fatal disease and the treatment and cure of the disease are all Bailey has focused on.  Now that she’s had several month disease free she has a bucket list of things to accomplish and stretching her wings both by living a real life and stretching her creative skills are high on her list.

The chemistry between Bailey and Hudson is instant and shows right away.   We as readers get to enjoy the trials and tribulations of watching two people fall in love while those around them both support them and interfere in the loving way that friends and families do.

MY KIND OF WONDERFUL is the second book in a series, and while I didn’t read the first book I would recommend that others start at the beginning.  There are several couples in MY KIND OF WONDERFUL and I know that they can’t all have had their stories in the first book, but perhaps there is more of their back story in that first book, which will only add to the enjoyment level of MY KIND OF WONDERFUL.

Jill Shalvis is a prolific author who has written a variety of series, and therefore when you sit down to read MY KIND OF WONDERFUL be careful if you’ve never read Shalvis before because you’ll be looking through your favorite retailer or library for all she has written, and life and chores that go with life may very well be forgotten as you delve into the wonderful various worlds created by Ms. Shalvis.

About LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness Duet #2):

Two hearts in the darkness…

Makenna James and Caden Grayson have been inseparable since the day they were trapped in a pitch-black elevator and found acceptance and love in the arms of a stranger. Makenna hopes that night put them on the path to forever—which can’t happen until she introduces her tattooed, pierced, and scarred boyfriend to her father and three over-protective brothers.

Must fight for love in the light…

Haunted by a childhood tragedy and the loss of his family, Caden never thought he’d find the love he shares with Makenna. But the deeper he falls, the more he fears the devastation sure to come if he ever lost her, too. When meeting her family doesn’t go smoothly, Caden questions whether Makenna deserves someone better, stronger, and just more…normal. Maybe they’re too different—and he’s far too damaged—after all…

Secret Sisters


secret sisters

Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favorite authors.  I discovered her more years ago than I want to admit, and she would more than likely want me to admit.  Unfortunately, I don’t recall the title of the first book I read, but I do vividly remember locking myself in my room, and not coming out until I had finished the book!

Now all these years later I wish I could have repeated the process, but unfortunately life has changed, and responsibilities come first, but SECRET SISTERS was always yelling to me to forget those responsibilities and read read read!

Once upon a time Madeline Chase and Daphne were innocent young girls having a sleep over, when a terrible thing occurred and changed their lives forever.  Two girls who thought they were as close as sisters and would never be separated not only are torn apart, but don’t see one another for eighteen years.

Madeline is now heir to a hotel chain, and she is called to Cooper Island by Tom, a longtime caretaker of a long abandoned hotel that is part of the chain.  Why is the hotel abandoned one might wonder?  The answer…this is where the awful tragedy that split Madeline and Daphne took place.  Why wouldn’t Madeline’s Grandmother want to sell the hotel if it held awful memories?  Perhaps memories aren’t the only thing the hotel is holding…maybe it has more stories hidden in its walls than Edith Chase, Madeline’s Grandmother, or Tom Lomax, the caregiver want to release.

There is one family on the island who is not happy that Madeline is back on the island and will stop at nothing to get rid of Madeline be it just by getting her off the island, or perhaps something more permanent.  Jack is determined to keep Madeline safe while getting to the bottom of what happened on the island eighteen years ago.

The Websters believe that the world should fall at their feet, and when Madeline doesn’t quite agree the result are truly fascinating.  Just when you think that one member of the family is sinister and how could anyone be so sinister you find out that another member of the family is perhaps just the tiniest bit more sinister.  The Webster family is one with huge dreams, and much to lose, and their story while very well written, and quite real is scary to think about.

Never once during SECRET SISTERS does the action slow or the story line become unbelievable.  SECRET SISTERS is Jayne Ann Krentz at her finest, and truly reminds me of the reasons why I love her as an author.  With SECRET SISTERS releasing in time for the holiday I suggest saving a bit so that you can get the reader in your life a present they will truly enjoy!

Entangled presents Say You’re Mine by Diane Alberts



Say You’re Mine by Diane Alberts


Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She’s been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he’s managed not to ruin.

Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.

Lauren’s watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can—she pretends she doesn’t want him. But all’s fair in love and war, and Steven’s not about to lose the only person in his life who matters…

From Entangled: Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey



Crashed Out by  Tessa Bailey

Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed…

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…
