Review: The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson

The Art of Running is Heels is the seventh book in the Chinooks Hockey Team series and a perfect read for fans of television series such as Bachelor. Although this is not a story about being a contestant who is actively trying to land the man.

When reading the synopsis, you may think this story is a simple friends to lovers romance but The Simple Soul of Susan is more than a simple love story. This story starts when Susan is a teenager in high school dealing with typical high school drama. For Susan though she has an extra caveat to deal with because her best friend is the most popular guy in school that all […]

Review: Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh

Rugged Texas Cowboy contains two novellas in one book. The first novella is titled Cowboy and the Captive and the second novella is titled Cowboy and the Thief. I will be honest and say that I set the book down after about twenty percent into the first novella and declared it a book that I was not going to finish. I picked this book back up again the next day though […]

Review: Mistletoe Magic by Amanda Siegrist

What a sweet story Mistletoe Magic was! I was not sure at first how I felt about Officer Aiden Crowl because he was quite a jerk. I loved Theresa Brennen’s character though. She was a sweet small-town girl who may not have had the best of opportunities but she made do with what she had. Despite growing up on the wrong side of town she was not jaded and was satisfied […]

Excerpt & Review: Romancing the Scot by May McGoldrick

Romancing the Scot is the first book in The Pennington Family series and I feel this promises to be a wonderful series. This series is set in the early eighteen-hundreds in Baronsford Scotland but the Pennington family is actually English. At the start of this story we meet Grace Ware who was the daughter of a military commander who fought with the French against the English. Grace and her father […]

Review: Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

This story, Heart of the Fae, has my heart completely and utterly. This was such a delightful story! If you love any rendition of the Beauty and the Beast story then this is a story you will absolutely love. Especially if you are fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses, because the main character of this story reminds me of a broody Tamlin. Except in this story Eamonn has […]

Review: The Devil of Dunakin Castle by Heather McCollum

The Devil of Dunakin Castle is the fourth book in the Highland Isles series but can absolutely be read as a standalone. In this story Grace Ellington was a woman who longed to prove herself courageous and strong. She was unable to do so though because she had a reputation for being quite the opposite and no one who knew her was willing look past her reputation. When an opportunity […]

Review: Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano

Out of the Ordinary is the second book in the Apart from the Crowd series and I absolutely loved that this book included the original cast of characters from book one. I love it when a cast of characters are developed and then they are carried through a series, it just adds to the overall story for me. This story though was focused on the relationship between Gertrude Cadwalader and Harrison […]

Review: Perfect Gravity by Vivien Jackson

Perfect Gravity picks up where its prequel, Wanted and Wired, ended. These two stories slightly overlap each other, so I was already familiar with the characters Kellen Hockley and Angela Neko. Although I did not know their backstories and history together. So, I was very excited to read the story behind them and I just adored Kellen’s character. I didn’t think I was going to like Angela’s character, but I most […]

Review: No Other Duke Will Do by Grace Burrowes

No Other Duke Will Do is the third book in the Windham Brides series and it was a charming story that was hilarious, witty, and had an unusual romance. Julian St. David was not interested in having a wife, he couldn’t even afford one if he wanted too. He was left with a legacy of debt resulting from one too many book purchases made by his predecessors and has been […]
