My Review

Merger begins right where Acquisition left off, so if you MUST read Acquisition first.

 For me, Merger had a much different feel to it than Acquisition. Acquisition was about the chase. Everything is new, so it amps up the excitement level, and yes, the drama as well. Merger is what happens after the chase, when things start to become real. Is it exciting? Yes. Is there drama? Of course. But it’s on a deeper level than what it was before. All the little inconsequential things matter a lot less and your priorities shift as you get comfortable in your new role. This is where Lauren and Antonio were for me, throughout the book. The fact that we see them stripped bare, took the emotional aspect to another level for me as a reader. I, like Lauren, fell in love with his family.  I really think they played a huge part in helping Lauren see a different side of Antonio. I can only imagine what would happen if they would meet the Gallo’s! Family plays a huge part in all of  Chelle’s books and I think that’s why she is one of my favorite authors.

The book ended perfectly for me, as far as Lauren and Antonio go. Call me selfish, but I would love to see more about the Forte family, especially the brother 😉

Merger is yet another 5 star read for me

But ever since Sophia Jennings’ best friend left her without so much as an explanation, life has spiraled out of control. With her career in tatters and having barely survived ninety days of sobriety, the last thing Sophia wants is to have old wounds ripped open.

He was her protector.

But ever since he walked away, Blake Henderson has lived an empty existence. It only takes one glance at Sophia for five years distance to melt away. Only she’s not the same girl anymore and he quickly realises his return to Hollywood was his biggest mistake yet.

With a new threat looming, and Sophie lost in an existence she never wanted to live, can Blake save the vivacious young woman who once had the world at her feet? Or will the two of them lead each other on a dark path of self-destruction as they discover just how far obsession goes and what the true cost of possession is?

 My Review
After reading the first book, I couldn’t wait to get more Blake and Sophia. Their story isn’t a pretty one and it shows the ugly downside of fame. She’s a girl that has grownup in the gilded world of Hollywood and the one person that has always been there to protect her from herself and the sharks around her has gone. I was so angry with her mother and the others around her that were supposed to be looking out for her well being. They weren’t looking out for Sophia the person, they were making sure Sophia the investment was able to perform. We get to see a new side to Sophia in this book. a more mature and grown up side. It seems she is realizing who is there for her and who isn’t. It was nice to see her with a backbone, she’s kind of feisty.
I adore Blake. He is always trying to do what’s best for everyone, especially Sophia. I loved that we got to see a different side to him with his family (his mother is amazing). It really gave the reader insight as to why he feels the way he feels about Sophia and her addiction. I especially loved that he was willing to do whatever was best for her, even if it meant doing something he didn’t want to do. She has always came first for him.
I have fallen in love with Sophia and Blake’s story and cannot wait to see where Anna Bloom take them next

Review: Cuffed by his Charm by Stacey Kennedy

A tabloid scandal unites a powerful mogul and a woman from the wrong side of the tracks in this tantalizing novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series.

The multimillionaire owner of a chain of successful Irish pubs, Gabe O’Keefe loves being in the spotlight almost as much as he loves women. But when all his secrets are exposed in a shameless tabloid, his glistening reputation takes a hit. What hurts most is learning who sold him out: sweet and sensual McKenna Archer, his own employee. Gabe thought he could trust her. But now he’s got bigger problems than keeping his hands off McKenna.

After putting a difficult past behind her, McKenna would never betray Gabe. But she knows someone who would: her brother, a compulsive gambler who owes money all over town. To make things right, McKenna will have to set aside her feelings for her boss. Easier said than done. Gabe oozes pure temptation. But when they team up, McKenna sees that he isn’t the manwhore she always thought. He’s strong. He’s real. And the heat between them is the only thing that makes sense anymore.

 

First of all I want to thank Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

My heart breaks for McKenna for the things that she goes through thanks to someone else. She was blamed for things that she didn’t do because of someone else. But its nice to see that Gabe is there for her. He helps her resolve the problems that she has gotten into, while at the same time figuring out his and his buddy’s own situations. I like the adventure that these two go through, there is excitement and adventure in the book, I really enjoyed that.

Review: The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman

Viscount Hart Highgate has decided to put his rakish ways behind him and finally get married. He may adore a good brandy or a high-speed carriage race, but he takes his duties as heir to the earldom seriously. Now all he has to do is find the right kind of woman to be his bride—ideally, one who’s also well-connected and well-funded. . .

Meg Timmons has loved Hart, the brother of her best friend, ever since she was an awkward, blushing schoolgirl. If only she had a large dowry—or anything to her name at all. Instead, she’s from a family that’s been locked in a bitter feud with Hart’s for years. And now she’s approaching her third London season, Meg’s chances with him are slim to none. Unless a surprise encounter on a deep, dark night could be enough to spark a rebellious romance. . .for all time?

As always I would like to first thank Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Man did Meg’s past hurt me. The wasn’t the woman that Hart’s father wanted for him. And it isn’t who Hart wanted at first either. But slowly he starts to realize that she is exactly the woman that he needed in his life. She has been through much, seen a lot of things that no one at her age should have needed to see. Hart needed learn humility and was shown how much his life was easy, while it wasn’t for others. There was a moment that I was so sad for Meg and Hart, things that happen are misinterpreted so badly they almost lost the chance for love and happiness.

I give this book 5 kisses.

Happy reading… Adri

My Review
I’ve read just about everything  that Chelle Bliss has written and this book is one of my favorites, right next to Enshrined.  It has everything that Chelle is known for, sexy alphas and strong women, set against a backdrop of business intrigue and mystery. I really loved that the romance is tied right in with intrigue. A lot of times it takes a back seat, but not this time. It makes the story so much more.
 There were plenty of times I wasn’t  sure about Antonio. His motives, his sincerity, but about midway through, he started changing my  mind about him. There’s no doubt there’s more to him than meets the eye. Lauren is Boss Lady personified. She’s strong, feisty, and knows just what she wants in business and in pleasure. She’s a character that every young woman can look up to. Just because she’s a beast in the business world, don’t  think she’s cold…..far from it.
The only spoiler I will warn you about, is that the book leaves on a hell of a cliff hanger. But don’t worry, the next one comes out in about a month, so we don’t  have to wait long. Until then, I’ll be waiting oh not so patiently to see where she takes these two characters next.

It’s what he said to me across his altar, what he demanded so that I would be pure.

In the moment he blessed me with his virtue, I was no longer the woman I’d once been.

I was Eve.

His light.

His salvation.

His bridge to Heaven’s gate.

I failed him because my faith was not strong enough.

He punished me for not giving in.

Resisting temptation is never easy.

Not when his hands, his teeth, his heat and hunger were the greatest of my sins.

My Review

I have patiently waited for this book ever since Lily teased us about it all those many months ago. This book is everything it could have been and then some.  There were quite a few times that I felt like I needed confession and I’m not even Catholic! It is a  beautifully twisted story that  gives us just a small peak in to what lurks inside Lily’s mind. To say a word about the plot would completely spoil it for the reader, all I will say is this: don’t  think you have Lily figured out. Because you are dead wrong.  I love when an author takes me out of my comfort zone and Lily does every single time. It’s the reason she is one of my favorite authors. She has a way of taking you to just that point of being uncomfortable, yet you can’t stop reading. She truly has a gift. Lucky for us, this story doesn’t end here and I can’t wait to see how it plays out in Fear the Wicked.

REVIEW: The White House Gets a Spanking by Elizabeth SaFleur

Book Title: The White House Gets A Spanking

By: Elizabeth SaFleur


Published by: Troll River Publications


Synopsis:

The last place Washington D.C. investigative journalist Stella Martin wanted to cover was the White House. But when a friend’s request to watch over her latest submissive plaything when she’s out of town turns out to be the White House Communications Director, Stella’s sudden unwelcomed and unbearable assignment becomes quite interesting.
Laird Harkness hadn’t expected his perfect Domme would show up in his office—the most famous house in the world and a place where his secret desires could end his career. Stella calms his fears, but can she sate his craving to submit, serve and belong to someone?
About the Justice Series: 

Washington, D.C. is full of powerful women. In this series, each book will introduce one of three D.C.-based Femme Dommes—Stella, Candor and Julianna—and the submissive men who get what they need: discipline, love and a larger purpose.


Meet the Author:


Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)

Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)

Today, I live  in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)

I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.

 My Review
I LOVED this book! I have read everything Elizabeth SaFleur has written and I simply can’t get enough. This story is different from the norm in terms of the D/s relationship we usually are given. This time roles are reversed and it’s the woman who’s on top with the male being the bottom. I’ve always been intrigued by the submissive male. So often we are given alpha males who take charge in every aspect of their lives, both in and out of the bedroom. It’s refreshing to read a male lead who is a powerhouse in his every day life, but trusts someone enough to take the lead in the bedroom. I think that’s the ultimate turn on, someone who trusts you enough to give you everything. I liked the added suspense of the DC setting, because if anyone found out Laird’s tastes he could very well be ruined. I adored Stella as well. She is a true Domme in every sense of the word. She radiates a take charge attitude that commands attention, but she isn’t so harsh that her femininity is lost. She’s the perfect balance of power and woman. Now the two of them together is a bdsm lover’s dream. The scenes are hot, the tension palpable, and the chemistry is sizzling.
I would love to be able to sit down with Miss SaFleur and dish the dirt on DC. I’ve always been curious how much of what she writes really goes on behind closed doors. You know the saying, the truth is stranger than fiction. For now, I will be content to devour her sensual prose. I cannot wait to read more of this series, and more from the author in general. She is one of my favorites and a must read for those who love the bdsm genre as much as I do

About THEIRS TO TAKE (Blasphemy #4):

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

She’s the fantasy they’ve always wanted to share…

Best friends Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos share almost everything—a history in the Navy, their sailboat building and restoration business, and the desire to dominate a woman together, which they do at Baltimore’s exclusive club, Blasphemy. Now if they could find someone who wants to play for keeps…

All Hartley Farren has in the world is the charter sailing business she inherited from her beloved father. So when a storm damages her boat, she throws herself on the mercy of business acquaintances to do the repairs—stat. She never expected to find herself desiring the sexy, hard-bodied builders, but being around Jonathan and Cruz reminds Hartley of how much she longs for connection. If only she could decide which man she wants to pursue more…

As their attraction flashes hot, Jonathan and Cruz determine to have Hartley for their own. But the men’s erotic world is new and overwhelming, and Hartley’s unsure if she could really submit to being both of theirs to take…forever.

EXCERPT:

From Laura Kaye:

I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of my super hot and emotional Theirs to Take, the next erotic standalone romance in my Blasphemy series, about the twelve Masters who run and play at Baltimore’s most exclusive club. Theirs to Take is a sexy ménage about what happens when two prior navy best friends and business partners meet a woman who makes them admit to desires they’ve never before voice. I think you’re going to love Jonathan and Cruz! I know I adored writing them! Even more fun, there are characters and scenes in Theirs to Take that cross over with the amazing Jennifer Probst’s brand new Reveal Me – and the best part is that both are standalones so you can dive right in!

 

Now, read in for a taste of Theirs to Take…

 

 

“Are they like you?” Hartley asked her friend, Scarlett, who’d recently joined the club called Blasphemy that she’d learned Jonathan and Cruz owned.

“A submissive, you mean?” When Hartley nodded, Scarlett said, “No. They’re Dominants. They like to control the scenes and their partners’ pleasure. Master Jonathan and Master Cruz are alphas through and through.” Scarlett gave her a teasing smirk.

“Master…” Hartley murmured, trying out the word. Aided by her friend’s commentary, her brain offered up all kinds of unhelpful imaginings. Her, on her knees, Jonathan standing over her. Or would it be Cruz? Being pulled over one of their laps, her ass in the air, hands stroking her. But whose hand? Gah. This was a full-on trip to crazytown. “Um, okay.”

Just then, the waiter arrived with their appetizer, but Hartley was too gobsmacked to think about food. As Scarlett forked a piece of mozzarella onto her plate, she looked like the cat that ate the canary. “There’s more.”

“How can there be more?” She almost didn’t want to know. No, scratch that, she really wanted to know. “What kind of more?”

“Take another sip,” Scarlett said, chuckling and tapping at the rim of her wine glass.

Hartley didn’t resist. She took a big drink, her heart racing, her head spinning, just a little, because she’d skipped breakfast this morning.

“Hartley, Jonathan and Cruz do scenes together.”

“Oh.” Her shoulders fell. “So they’re a couple?” Man, that was…kinda disappointing. She totally got it, though. They were beautiful men. Best friends. Had served in the military together and now were business partners. It made sense that they could be together romantically. But, damn, she’d read that flirtation all wrong, hadn’t she?

And hell if that disappointment she was feeling didn’t reveal a thing or two…

Scarlett shook her head. “No, well, maybe. I don’t know. There’s some speculation around the club that there might be something romantic between them. But what I mean is, they do scenes together. Both of them with the same submissive. At one time. You know, like, ménage à trois.”

It was a good thing Hartley had just swallowed, because otherwise she might’ve done a cartoon-like spit take. Heat roared through her body. Because those imaginings she’d just done…that question she’d just asked herself about which one would be starring in those fantasies with her…now she had her answer. They might not make her choose.

“That is the…hottest, craziest thing I’ve ever heard in my whole life,” Hartley managed, her brain possibly shorting out at the thought. Both of them. Together. At the same time. Jonathan’s golden-boy good looks. Cruz’s dark, intensity. At. The. Same. Time.

As always I first thank Laura Kaye and Inkslinger for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

I just don’t know where to start with this one. I was gone from the first paragraph. I won’t lie and say I am not the menage lover in our group because saying I love them wouldn’t even cover how much that is true. So it was without saying this is the Blasphemy book I was most looking forward to. And damn it didn’t disappoint. It gave me everything I wanted and was looking for and more. Who would have thought that Cruz and Jonathan would feel the way that they do for so long and do nothing about it. It was great to see how Hartley was able to bring them together. And I will also say that I am anxious to read Jennifer Probst’s book because now that I know the characters for her crossover I would love to see how they all interact. This was a fantastic book and the way the relationship develops is smooth and fantastic. I have been loving the whole Blasphemy series and look forward to even more.

Review: Royal Pain by Tracy Wolff

[br]

Blurb:

He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.

Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.

Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.

But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . . .

Excerpt

“What if I promise to stay in view of the windows the whole time?” I tell them. “I’ll park myself right there in front of that one and you can make sure I’m safe.”

Lucas looks like he wants to argue, but I cut him off before he can even start. “Come on, man. You’ve got to give me something. I like this woman.”

He sighs, but in the end—above the very vocal protests of the very serious Avery—he nods. “In sight the whole time,” he orders and for a moment I feel like a junior high kid on his first date.

But beggars can’t be choosers and I know, better than most, what a disaster it would be if something happened to the spare three months after the heir disappeared. Wildemar would be in absolute chaos. There’s no way I’d put my country through that, girl or no girl.

“I promise. And if I disappear from sight for more than five seconds, you have my permission to come crashing in after me.”

“I think you’re forgetting,” Niall says with a narrow-eyed look, “we don’t need your permission.”

“Geez. Way to be a killjoy.”

“Yeah, well, someone in this relationship has to be.”

“Aww, Niall.” I slap his ass with my free hand on my way by. “Don’t you know it’s more fun when everyone’s having a good time?”

Lucas snorts and Avery sounds like he’s strangling on his own tongue. I can’t help grinning as I make my way to Savvy’s front door. Maybe it won’t take as long to break in my new bodyguard as I was afraid of.

I can hear music through the open windows, Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie,” and I can’t help thinking about the way Savvy’s hips looked in her black work pants. Can’t help wondering about what she’s wearing now—and whether or not she’ll let me get another good look at her luscious, heart-shaped ass.

At least she’s home, I tell myself as I knock. While I knew she wasn’t scheduled to work, I was afraid she might be running errands or something.

She’s at the front door in seconds, her big brown eyes wide and inquiring . . . at least until her gaze meets mine. “What are you doing here?” she demands.

“Wow, way to make a guy feel welcome.” I hold the flowers out to her. “These are for you.”

“Thanks, but I’m allergic.” She starts to close the door in my face, but I get a foot wedged in before she can shut it completely.

“Are you seriously allergic?” I ask, still holding out the flowers. What I really want to ask is Are you seriously going to slam the door in my face?

“No.” She studies the blooms for a couple of seconds before snatching them out of my hand. Then she really does close the door and I’m so surprised I don’t do anything to stop her.

Behind me Lucas, Niall and even Avery are full-on laughing now. In fact, I’m pretty sure the only thing keeping them from absolutely annihilating me is the fact that I am still their prince. That somehow only makes it worse.

Gritting my teeth, I ignore them (and try not to remember the good old days when I could have had them banished to the dungeon) as I lift my hand to knock again. But before my knuckles can even meet the wood, the door flies open again and Savvy is standing there, smiling hugely at me.

“I’m just messing with you,” she says as she pulls me inside. “But I have to say, your expression was priceless. Is that the first time a woman’s ever shut the door in your face?”

I think about. “I’m pretty sure it is.”

“I figured. But hey, now you can cross it off your bucket list. Every guy needs to have the experience at least once, don’t you think?”

“I think I was good without it ever happening, actually. Definitely didn’t feel like I was missing anything.”

“Maybe not,” she concedes. But then she grins and it’s so wicked, so wild, that I can feel it all the way to my bones. “You’ve got to admit it was funny, though. God, if you could have seen your face.”

“I’d rather look at yours.” The cheesy line pops out of nowhere and I’m not sure which one of us is more shocked. Shit. What the hell is happening to me? Savvy throws me off balance just by breathing, and I don’t have a clue what I’m supposed to do to stop it.

Or even if I want to stop it. God knows, every time she opens her mouth—or closes a door in my face or spills a glass of champagne on me—it only makes me hotter. Only makes me want her more. There’s something about how she’s always doing the unexpected, always surprising me, always challenging me, that turns me on in a big fucking way.

The little white shorts and tiny red camisole don’t hurt, either.

And I know I’m not the only one, know the heat isn’t only on my side. I’ve been with enough women in my life to know when one’s attracted to me, and Savvy is, even if she doesn’t want to be.

Half of me wants to push on that a little bit, wants to see where it’ll take me if I get in her space right now. But the other half doesn’t want to risk it, not yet. Not with this woman who is a lot of things, but definitely not predictable.

Besides, I’m pretty sure my time allotment is reaching its upper limits, and I don’t doubt that Avery will come crashing through the front door in about thirty seconds if I don’t get where he can see me.

“Do you want some lemonade?” Savvy asks as she starts walking toward the kitchen.

“I’d love some. But do you mind if I hang out here while you get it?” I take a few steps to the left, making sure to line myself up directly in front of the window.

She turns to me, eyebrows raised, and I figure I might as well own up to the problem. “My babysitters like to keep an eye on me at all times,” I tell her as I point out the window.

She glances from me to where Niall, Lucas and Avery are standing on the sidewalk in their suits, eyes trained on me—and her.

I expect her to be a little annoyed—most women who aren’t crown chasers usually are—but Savvy just laughs and waves. “I’ll pour five glasses of lemonade,” she tosses over her shoulder as she makes her way to the kitchen. “Get comfortable and I’ll be right back.”

From another woman, the invitation to get comfortable would mean she’s down to fuck, but I’m pretty sure Savvy just wants me to take a seat. More’s the pity.

About the Author

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.

I would like to start by thanking Random House Loveswept and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Oh man did I enjoy this book. The fact that Prince Kian had to deal with so many thing and was still is able to find love. Without giving too much away the past that Savvy keeps from Kian is what shapes her reaction and feeling for Kian. But I loved the fact that she is able to tame the wild man. I just wish she didn’t give into him so easily sometimes. I think that she would have been a stronger character if she made Kian work for things. Savvy was such a renaissance character and didn’t mind working hard for what she has in life. The only flaw I found with her is that she wasn’t a stronger person when it came to herself. Again she was great and strong person for her survival needs but for her emotional ones she was weak. Now I also think a big part of why she was that way was due to the past. I do think though that my favorite character all around is definitely Kian. I can’t wait for the next book and what Tracy Wolff has in store for us next.

I gave this book 5 royal kisses.

Happy Reading… Adri

Review: Hero in the Highlands & My One True Highlander

Scotland, 1812: He’s ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any Society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he’s inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.

Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English―and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona’s peace of mind. Secondly, his right to “her” castle is a travesty, since it’s been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy’s advances―or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise?

Scotland, 1812—Rugged Highlander Graeme’s loyalty to his clan means that their enemies are his own—even when that includes his neighbor, the Duke of Lattimer. It’s a fight he doesn’t relish, but when Graeme’s reckless younger brothers foolishly kidnap Lattimer’s younger sister, all bets are off…

Lady Marjorie Forrester may be aligned with the enemy, but capturing her puts Graeme squarely in the middle of a war. If he turns Marjorie over to his clan chief, she could be killed. If he lets her go, his brothers could face prison. In addition, the woman can’t stop trying to civilize the lot of them! What’s a Highlander to do, then, but keep the stubborn lass close…and explore the unexpected passion that develops between them? But how can Graeme protect Marjorie and his brothers when both Lattimer and his own clan are on the warpath—and will do whatever it takes to tear these two star-crossed lovers apart, in My One True Highlander, the next No Ordinary Hero Scottish romance from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch.

 

As always a thank you goes to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you this review.

It was nice to see a couple of characters that grew up struggling end up having it all. Gabriel wasn’t expecting anything, but then something fell in his hands. This changes not only his life but his sisters. So it was nice to see both of them finding the love that they both need, want and deserve. Gabriel gets feisty Fiona while Marjorie gets Graeme who is so loving, caring and protective. There is something happening in those highlands and I can’t wait to find out more.
