Heated Pursuit

Heated Pursuit by April Hunt


Overview by Publisher:

Penny Kline didn’t come to Honduras on a pleasure trip. She’s here to rescue her kidnapped niece, the only family she’s got left. What she didn’t plan on was walking into a covert ops mission—or being wrapped up in the hard-muscled arms of Rafe Ortega. The cool-as-ice operative’s touch may get her all hot and bothered, but no man can have a hold on her heart until her niece is home where she belongs.

Even in the tropics, Alpha Security operative Rafe can take down the bad guys without breaking a sweat. Hostage extractions. Clandestine missions. Those are the things he’s been trained to handle. Relationships? Not so much. But one look at this strong, sexy redhead and he’s seized by a fierce urge to protect her at all costs. Now Penny and Rafe will have to up their game because they’re about to go into a master criminal’s lair without backup, and the danger—and passion—is about to explode . . .

I started reading this book when I went to bed last night and the next thing I knew, it was three in the morning and I had finished it!  That is a clear sign that I enjoyed it and it was captivating!

The story involves Penny and Rafe.  Penny is down in Honduras searching for her missing cousin.  She stumbles into a group of operatives, including her male cousin who she hasn’t heard from in years.  It turns out they are looking for the same drug lord who has her cousin captive.  Rafe is part of the team that has been hunting him for months.  Penny wants to be part of their team and thinks her training as a bounty hunter has prepared her for the role.

Rafe is immediately attracted to Penny.  He battles the attraction due to the fact that Trey, her cousin, would kill him as well as the fact that he just doesn’t do relationships. With the attraction barely contained, they are heading to go undercover and posing as lovers.

The action is just as hot as the sex scenes in the book.  Penny and Rafe set the pages on fire with their scorching passion.  The dangerous jungle lair of the drug lord creates tension and anxious situations.  It really heightened the plot and moved the relationship along between the two.

I found this to be an exciting book to read.  While I was reading, I found myself enjoying the development of the characters.  There was enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing what would happen next!  A hot love story with tons of danger!

Lady Lost

Lady Lost by Jane Goodger


Overview by Publisher:

All Marcus Granton wants is to be left alone to lick his wounds after the humiliating scandal of his wife’s death in another man’s bed. Secluded in his moldering seaside estate on the cliffs of the Black Sea, he suddenly finds himself host to Lady Lilian Martin, one small child, and an annoying cache of servants all bent on ruining his solitude. Seems the lady got herself into a bit of a pickle and is accused of murder, of all things. Now she must rely on him for protection—and to keep his thoughts and hands away from her delectable body.

Lilian has no intention of spending any more time with the insufferable Lord Marcus Granton than she has to. But at every turn, circumstances force her into his company, and by the time she truly makes her escape, it’s far too late for her…and her heart.

I recently discovered the British show Poldark.  It’s a great show and definitely helps with droughtlander!  The lead, Poldark and his lovely wife, Demelza are as wild as the Cornish coast they inhabit.  While reading this book, I couldn’t help but imagine the scenery and the characters in Poldark.


This story features a brooding and unhappy Lord who is rusticating in his worn down estate on the coast.  Marcus has suffered betrayal and is licking his wounds.  He is not ready to rejoin the lavish society he has turned away from – including his family.

His solitude is interrupted by a woman who faints in front of his carriage.  He brings Lillian to his home to recuperate and it turns into a life changing event.

Lillian is running away from an investigation into her brother-in-law’s murder.  The story starts before these events and lets us in on the sad tale of Lillian’s past.  As a young woman, she was forced to enter the marriage mart to find a husband to take care of her and her sister.  With her mother nearing death, Lillian reluctantly accepts the attentions of the Duke of Weston.  The lecherous man then turns his attentions to her much younger sister, whom he marries.  Lillian spent three years in their home, dodging his unwanted advances and the temper of her sister who rails at the injustices of her life.  When Lillian comes across the Duke murdered, she is mistakenly labelled as the killer by her sister.  She flees and is found by Marcus.

The story revolves around the relationship between Lillian and Marcus.  Unexpected guests arrive at the spooky old estate that challenge the couple and yet bring them together.  Marcus doesn’t want to be attracted to Lillian and doesn’t want to be around her.  Lillian has no where to go.  She is wanted by the authorities and disgraced by society.  The story really delves into Marcus’ grief and emotions.  He is the dark to the lightness that Lillian brings to the story.

I found this book to be really engaging.  It was different from a lot of historical romance novels due to the setting, plot and characters.  The sweeping coast was like a character unto itself.  It plays a large role in the adventures the characters have and adds an element of danger.  The plot line is unique in that there is a reality woven throughout, from the late duke’s sexual predilections to the murder investigation to the sexual relationship between the two.  The characters are enjoyable to read about, and we get to know their deepest feelings and thoughts.

A great story!  Make sure to check it out!

The Billionaire Next Door

The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Lemmon


Overview by Publisher:

It’s Tag Crane’s job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn’t perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he’s ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It’s not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it’s a fantasy come true. What’s the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can’t be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

The minute I started reading this book, I was immediately connecting the lead character, Tag with the internet sensation-turned actor, Brock O’Hurn.  I greatly enjoy following Brock on Instagram.  He comes across as a genuinely nice guy who is leveraging his fantastic looks into an acting career.  He is currently starring in Tyler Perry’s Too Close To Home tv show, so every week I can watch him in action, whether he is riding a motorcycle or kissing a cute lady or helping an elderly man.  This guy has it going on and reading this book was like fan fiction of Brock O’Hurn.


Tag is described as 6’6, with long, flowing hair and a close cropped beard.  Hello Brock!  While the latter is just starting to make his mark, the character Tag is a billionaire and part of the established hotel dynasty Crane.  He is in charge of guest services for the hotels and travels the world constantly.  This suits his lifestyle, including his love ’em and leave ’em approach to the ladies.

While it would appear that I find Tag to be the star of the book, it was actually Rachel who was the most interesting.  Rachel has a lot of baggage.  Tag meets her when she is starting to rebuild her life after a betrayal that shook her to her core.  Her spirit has been crushed and she is struggling to see her worth.

While it would be easy to assume that Tag sweeps in and solves all of Rachel’s problems, the story is a lot more complicated than that.  Rachel is incredibly guarded and almost defeated in life.  She resists putting her life in the hands of another man and I really respected that – although at times I was yelling at her for being able to resist the luscious manliness of Tag/Brock.

Like other Jessica Lemmon books, this one features great sex scenes.  I found it thrilling how the author detailed their encounters and really built up the sexual tension between the two.  While not gratuitous, the scenes have some great chemistry and action to further the plot!

The first book in the series, The Billionaire Bachelor, was a great read and the characters are featured in this book, as well as the other Crane brother Eli. The author has set up the plot for the final book which looks really interesting.  While this is the second book in the series, it can definitely be read as a stand alone, although you will likely want to read the first as well!

Last Ride

Last Ride (Wind Dragons MC Series) by Chantal Fernando


Overview by Publisher:

The Wind Dragons MC couple who started it all is back! We met the stars of Chantal Fernando’s bestselling series in Dragon’s Lair, and now Sin and Faye are ready for more—and with these two, that means more passion, more action, and more of the best kind of trouble.

Sin, president of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club, doesn’t mind that things have quieted down since he got married—with Faye at his side, he’ll never be bored. Plus, they’ve got their little girl Clover to keep them on their toes. But when new MC brother Talon needs help rooting out a traitor in his old club, Faye’s the first to volunteer. She’s more determined than ever to get involved and put her law degree to good use, but Sin soon finds himself riding to the rescue. Because he’ll kill anybody who touches a hair on Faye’s head—if she doesn’t get to them first. One way or another, tonight’s going to be someone’s last ride….

God, I LOVE this series!  The Wind Dragons have dominated my Kindle lately.  I have recently discovered this series and blew through every book.  Thankfully, Chantal Fernando has been releasing the books pretty quickly, which is much appreciated as the wait between books can be so long sometimes!

This book is not very long – more of a novella in length.  It goes back to the couple that started it all – Faye and Sin.  Their story was fantastic and I highly recommend reading it!

Faye is a bad ass bitch!  She has a wicked sense of humour and loves her family deeply.  Not only is she the wife to the President of a biker club, she is a lawyer and a mom of two little ones.  Faye has seen the dangerous side of the biker lifestyle first hand over the years and has sought to make herself physically stronger to protect what she loves.

The past couple of books in the series feature a mysterious plot of a traitor in the midst of a rival MC.  All the loose ends get tied up in this book.  It’s dangerous, humourous and engaging.  I literally read this book in a couple of hours because I couldn’t put it down!

I have a sad feeling that this is the last book in the series.  Almost all the Wind Dragons are settled down and each guy got a special moment with Faye at the end of the book.  My heart breaks at facing the end of these awesome guys, but I am also excited to see what she comes up with next!


Baron (Knickerbocker Club) by Joanna Shupe


Overview by Publisher:

New York City’s Gilded Age shines as bright as the power-wielding men of the Knickerbocker Club. And one pragmatic industrialist is about to learn that a man may make his own destiny, but love is a matter of fortune . . .

Born into one of New York’s most respected families, William Sloane is a railroad baron who has all the right friends in all the right places. But no matter how much success he achieves, he always wants more. Having secured his place atop the city’s highest echelons of society, he’s now setting his sights on a political run. Nothing can distract him from his next pursuit—except, perhaps, the enchanting con artist he never saw coming . . .

Ava Jones has eked out a living the only way she knows how. As “Madame Zolikoff,” she hoodwinks gullible audiences into believing she can communicate with the spirit world. But her carefully crafted persona is nearly destroyed when Will Sloane walks into her life—and lays bare her latest scheme. The charlatan is certain she can seduce the handsome millionaire into keeping her secret and using her skills for his campaign—unless he’s the one who’s already put a spell on her . . .

I really love this series!  The author has set this series in New York’s gilded age in the early 1900s.  It’s a totally different time compared to most historical romance novels.  It explores the gilt and glamour of New York, studded with names like Astor and Rockerfeller.

The Knickerbocker club is a group of four men who have complimentary business interests. Together, they work to ensure their agendas – be it political or business related – are successful.  Two of the men have been featured in previous stories, Magnate and Tycoon.

This story features Will Sloan.  His sister, Lizzie was the romance lead in the previous book, so we got to know Will quite well.  He is a true blue blooded New Yorker and businessman.  He has turned his attention from his railroad business to politics and is running on the ticket for the Republicans.  His running mate has been seeing a psychic, Madame Zolikoff for advice.  Will is determined to get rid of this charlatan as the press finding out will damage their political chances.

What Will doesn’t realize is that he will fall head over heels in lust for the lovely Ava Stone.  When bullying and bribery don’t work, Will must use all his persuasion to get Ava to stay away from his running mate.  As the two spend more time together, they learn about each other’s worlds.  It was really interesting reading about Ava’s life in working class New York.  The author must have done extensive research to find out what the average workers life was like at that time.  It was likely much easier to find out what the elite of New York were doing, but the poor working class led a life vastly different.  Seeing the poverty and the desperation through wealthy Will’s eyes was very effective.

The class difference between the two features heavily in the story.  While they may be compatible in many ways, the social class is a gulf that can rarely be breached.  The story explores the challenges the couple faces from within and from society at large.  What is always great about Joanna Shupe books are the passionate and exciting love scenes.  The characters are so well developed and the reader really understands their motivations and thoughts.  So when they come together in the bedroom, the scenes are not only vivid and lush, but they move the plot forward.

At the end of the book, the final Knickerbocker, Cabot, is highlighted with a chapter from his story.  When I finished the end of the first chapter, I was so disappointed not to have more to read!  I am very excited to read his story as it seems the most interesting and spicy!  Can’t wait!

To Love and to Cherish

To Love and to Cherish (The Wedding Belles) by Lauren Layne


Overview by Publisher:

Alexis Morgan has spent the past eight years devoted to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premiere wedding planning company, The Wedding Belles. Now that her business is thriving, it’s time to turn towards her much neglected personal life, and Alexis approaches her relationships like she does everything else: with a plan. Not a part of that plan is Logan Harris, the silent partner in the Belles, and the one person who’s been there for her since the very beginning. But Alexis needs someone fun, and Logan’s all business, all the time—except when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss that leaves the usually cool and together Alexis reeling.

Logan has lusted after Alexis since the day he walked into the tiny Harlem apartment that used to double as her office. But the ambitious wedding planner has always been untouchable…until now. Alexis has made it clear that she’s on the dating market—and equally clear that he’s not in the running. But when Alexis finds herself in need of a date for her sister’s last minute wedding in Florida, Logan knows it’s the perfect time to show Alexis that there’s more to him than numbers and spreadsheets—and beneath the pinstripes and glasses lies a hot-blooded heartthrob. As Florida’s sultry days turn into even hotter nights, Logan’s out to convince Alexis that the fling of a lifetime could just maybe turn into forever…

I love Lauren Layne’s writing.  She creates complex characters, witty dialogue and steamy scenes that leave you panting for more.

This is the third book in the Wedding Belle’s series.  I haven’t read the other two books, but that didn’t make a difference as I wasn’t lost trying to figure out the plot.  She weaves in the previous couples seamlessly and effectively.

Logan has been in love with Alexis for eight years.  They are co-owners of her elite wedding planning business and meet regularly to review the finances, but nothing more.  Things come to a head when Logan is forced to make his move.  He is being pressured to return home to London to take over the family business, but his heart is still in New York with Alexis.

Alexis is an interesting character. She has been so badly burned by her past that she has become cold and closed off to the idea of love and a family.  While she helps brides create the perfect wedding, her own love life is non existent.  She can’t see what is in front of her – Logan.

The story revolves around Logan making his move to convince Alexis that love is in front of her.  This has her running scared.  While its a given that there will be a happily ever after ending, the drama to get there is where this book soars.  Logan is a man at the end of his tightly tethered rope.  Alexis is disorientated at the change in her life and relationship with Logan.  Reading about the two of them working together to figure things out was a quintessential Lauren Layne romance.  Another hit for Lauren!

Wicked Highland Wishes

Wicked Highland Wishes (Highlander Vows:  Entangled Hearts Book #2) by Julie Johnstone


Overview by Amazon:

Desire tempted them. Honor forbade them. Love ensnared them.

Legendary warrior Lachlan MacLeod has never encountered anything or anyone he could not conquer. But when his younger brother confesses his love for Bridgette MacLean—the only woman Lachlan has ever wanted—Lachlan turns away from the beautiful Scottish lass, vowing to be no more than her friend. Yet his need for Bridgette enslaves him and may well prove to be the one thing he cannot defeat.

Fiercely independent Bridgette longs to be treated as an equal to the men. She always imagined great battles in her future, not great love. Then Lachlan saw her as no one ever had and captured her heart, awakening new cravings inside her without realizing it. But when Lachlan’s younger brother suffers a grave injury while saving her life, she feels unable to deny his plea for her heart. However, it is impossible to give what belongs to another…

Torn between their own desire and their loyalties, Bridgette and Lachlan must find the courage to grasp the passion awaiting them and face the pain their choice will cause. Yet even as they confront their future and love finally seems within their grasp, a fight for the Scottish throne divides the Highland clans and Bridgette becomes a pawn in a political game that threatens to tear her and Lachlan apart forever.

Whew!  This book was epic!  There is so much that happens that I paused to reflect on this book before I wrote the review.

Bridgette is a fierce Highland woman.  She wants to be seen as strong and capable as any man and fights for that right.  As a teenager, she shares a passionate kiss with her brother’s ally and friend Lachlan.  It is the beginning of an epic love between the two.

Time has not been kind to the two.  Bridgette is now being courted by Lachlan’s brother Graham who has made his intentions of marriage explicit.  Lachlan has never paid her attention again, so she resigns herself to a loveless union where she feels she owns Graham as he was wounded defending her.  Bridgette has turned down marriages in the past, one with the despicable Colin Campbell.

There is a lot of political plot that happens in this book. It features Robert the Bruce’s son, King David and his entourage.  I found this really interesting as a great majority of the Highlander books out there feature the sire.

The heart of the book is the relationship between Lachlan and Bridgette.  They must deal with the betrayal of his brother Lachlan, the anger of Colin Campbell and the pretend engagement Lachlan has with Colin’s sister Helena.  There is a complex plot in play here.  While it is never confusing, it felt like these two had more obstacles than Romeo and Juliet.  It made the moments they had together all the more precious and rare.

***Spoilers ahead – stop reading now if you don’t want to know***

I am so glad that I took a day to mull things over in my mind before I wrote the review.  Many historical romance novels feature close calls for the female leads.  They are in situations where they are perilously close to being sexually assaulted.  Not many of them actually go there, but this book did.  While it is not graphic, I was yelling NO in my head.  This isn’t the norm for the happily ever after characters have in historical romance novels.  At first, I was surprised that the author would actually include this in the story.  I kept waiting for Bridgette to be rescued or to bash him over the head, but it happened.

After mulling this over for a day, I have come to the conclusion that this scene and event didn’t detract from the book.  It is a brutal reality and very likely what happened to women at that time (and obviously today).  It was how the rape was dealt with afterwards that was cathartic.  Lachlan was a model for any man who supports the woman he loves in the aftermath.  Nothing was magically ok.  Things were hard for Bridgette and for the couple.  They had to work through it and her pain.

This is a complex and at times brutal romance.  Hearts are torn and emotions run high.  It is a sweeping romance that features many players, but at the heart it is the love between Bridgette and Lachlan.


Top Shelf

Top Shelf (An Aces Hockey Novel) by Kelly Jamieson

Overview by Publisher:

Not only is Jared Rupp one of the stars of the NHL’s Chicago Aces, he’s also the owner of the Sin Bin, the after-hours hot spot where the whole team hangs out. Lately, Jared can’t take his eyes off the woman he’s hired to give the Bin a more modern feel: a sexy, sophisticated consultant who has carved out a niche updating drink menus. She’s as passionate about her career as Jared is about hockey—and yet he can’t help wondering what kind of cocktail she really wants.
In her line of work, Sidney Frayne is used to guys hitting on her in bars, but Jared gets her hot enough to burst into flames. When he’s wining and dining her, he’s sophisticated as hell; on the rink, he’s a testosterone-fueled powerhouse. Still, Sidney’s bitter divorce taught her to keep her emotions on ice. With her busy schedule—and Jared’s playboy reputation—she’s not sure she’s ready for a fling. Because if she lets Jared into her bed, she just may have to let him into her heart.

Hockey season is almost in full swing!  It’s one of the only reasons winter is bearable.  I recently found this Instagram thread that features the hottest men of the NHL.  I can definitely see where authors get their inspiration!  There are some very handsome men who chase the puck for a living!

Jared is one of the smart guys in the league.  He realizes that he can’t play forever and needs to have a career afterwards.  He has created the restaurant, Sin Bin so that he has something other than hockey in his life – although having earned a Stanley Cup once has made him thirsty for it again!  He meets a lovely and sexy blonde at the bar one night and it’s not the result he expects.  Instead of getting hot and heavy, she is writing up a business proposal to improve his restaurant.

This story features a lot about the restaurant industry and the hockey world, but it really at the heart of it is a story about two people navigating a relationship.  Jared falls hard and fast for Sidney, but she is the one reluctant to give her heart to a real relationship.

Like all Kelly Jamieson books, this one features some amazing action – on the ice and in the bedroom.  I really appreciate the attention she pays to developing the hockey aspect of the story.  It’s important as this trope needs to feature what happens on the ice otherwise it’s just a contemporary romance book and not realistic to the hockey life.  Her books feature great sex scenes that have very sexy men who are well matched by the women they have in their lives.  This book is no exception and I found myself getting hot under the collar reading some of the moves Jared puts on Sidney.

What made this book so interesting is that it’s rare to find a woman who pushes a hot, successful and all around nice guy away.  Sidney has been burned in the past, but her reluctance to get involved with Jared requires introspection.  Her motivations and past are explored so well that this relationship is believable.

Another great hit for Kelly Jamieson!

Her Wicked Highlander

Her Wicked Highlander (Highland Knights #2.5) by Jennifer Haymore


Overview by Publisher:


A Highland Knight clashes with a Highland lass. Scotland will never be the same.

Aila MacKerrick has lived a quiet, lonely life since her parents died two years ago. That is until a dark stranger steals her from her bed one night, throws her on his horse, and spirits her away to an ancient, abandoned castle in the middle of the Highland forest.

Maxwell White has been assigned to take the MacKerrick lass to a safe location. In Max’s experience, women are docile, biddable creatures, but he’s never met anyone like Aila. She surprises him at every turn, with her spirited fight against him, with her willingness to dirty her hands, with her adventurousness in bed.

Max vows to protect Aila, but an ambitious warlord is determined to possess the legendary dagger that has belonged in her family for generations, and he’ll go to any lengths to get it–including tearing Aila away from Max forever.s

This is a quick and fun read featuring two great characters!  Aila and her family have guarded a Highland treasure for years.  She lives in isolation in the Highlands when a man steals into her home in the middle of the night.  He kidnaps her and takes her away – briefly admitting it’s for her own benefit.

I have really enjoyed this series featuring the Highland Knights.  They are a group of former military officers from Waterloo who have been formed to protect the crown.  Max has been sent to the Highlands to secure the precious dagger that can unite the clans against an enemy.

The book reminded me a lot of So Worthy My Love by Kathleen Woodiwiss.  A feisty woman held captive who falls for the man sent to protect her.  Things move fast as expected since this is a novella, but there is a ton of plot in the pages.  Action and adventure mingle with the lust and attraction in the pages.

If you’re looking for an enjoyable read for an afternoon with a sexy Highlander who meets his match – you have found the right book!

In Safe Hands

In Safe Hands (Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue Series) by Katie Ruggle


Overview by Publisher:

In the remote Rocky Mountains, lives depend on the Search & Rescue brotherhood. But in a place this far off the map, trust is hard to come by and secrets can be murder…

It’s all come down to this…

Daisy Little has lived in agoraphobic terror for over eight years. Trapped within a prison of her own making, she watches time pass through her bedroom window. Daisy knows she’ll never be a part of the world…until the day she becomes the sole witness of a terrible crime that may finally tear the Search and Rescue brotherhood apart for good.

I recently read another book in this series, In Safe Hands, and I enjoyed the relationship between the chatty city slicker and the almost mute George, so I thought I would give this a go!

Daisy is agoraphobic and can’t leave her home.  She has been a virtual prisoner in her home for years since her mother was shot in front of her in a robbery.  Her only life line to the outside world is Chris, a deputy with the police department.

While they are the best of friends, Daisy has started to think of Chris as someone she would like to be with.  Gently rebuffed by him when she attempted to kiss him months ago, the relationship between the two is somewhat strained and different.  Since Daisy is housebound, she has lots of time to reflect on her situation.

Daisy’s life as a shut in is filled with working out, selling antique items on the internet and waiting for Chris to visit.  She also spends a lot of time watching out of her windows at the world she can’t join.  She observes her neighbours and spies on their lives.  One evening she witnesses something strange at the vacant home across the street.  She thinks she has witnessed a member of the police department removing a body from the home and loading it into an official vehicle.

This sets off a chain of events that bring danger to Daisy’s doorstep.  It also brings Chris closer as he wants to protect her.

Daisy becomes friends with the couples featured in the other books in the series as they work to solve some mysterious deaths and conspiracies in the small town.  If you have read the previous books, this will give you an update on how the other couples are doing.

I liked the interactions between Daisy and Chris.  They have genuine affection for each other and watching their relationship cross into a romance was heart warming.  Daisy is in real danger and she needs Chris to help her survive.

I found that there was a lot of plot in this book.  The evening ‘white board’ sessions to solve the town murders and mysteries and the gym sessions were a lot to take in as the reader.  So many characters!  If you haven’t read the other books, it makes it challenging to keep up with the events and I found myself wanting to get back to Daisy and Chris.

The drama level in this book gets ratcheted up with the resolution of the resolution of the mysterious events happening in the sleepy, snowy town.  The author lets us know who the killer is and what nefarious events they are up to.  There are some pretty tense moments that make for a spooky drama.
