Review Rewind: Taming Eliza Jane (Gardiner, Texas #1) by Shannon Stacey

Review Rewind: Taming Eliza Jane (Gardiner, Texas #1) by Shannon Stacey

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! What a pleasant surprise!  An endearing and fun love story! Think Maverick/Cheyenne Social Club/Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, all rolled into one.  Eliza Jane, divorced women’s libber has come to town, and now the townsfolk are in an uproar, and she is at the center of it all. The trigger finger happy sheriff, Adam, and town doc/deputy sheriff, Will, have made it their business to keep her in line. One wants to shoot her, and the other one wants to bed her. Quite the comedic duo. Will is charming, sexy, sweet, and he’s just the man to keep Eliza Jane out of trouble…maybe! But trouble has a way of […]

Review: Don’t Tempt Me (Guthrie Brothers, #1) by Lori Foster

Review: Don’t Tempt Me (Guthrie Brothers, #1)  by Lori Foster

Dorsey’s Review 4.5 Hunky Neighbor Stars!!  I really loved this book, classic Lori Foster!! Where to begin….. Don’t Tempt Me starts when Honor moves into her new fixer-upper house with the help of her BFF, Lexie. Right off the bat her sexy neighbor Jason, his brother Hogan, and his adorable teen nephew Colt start to intrude in her very private, quiet, and busy life, and things get a little bit crazy for her. Now about the Guthrie Brothers (and Colt)….they are very friendly, generous, caring, honest, funny, and super protective. Jason was attracted to Honor right from the start but Honor has a lot of personal stuff to work through. She has […]

Review: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Review: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Crista’s Review 5 Magical Stars!!! Captivating, Enchanting, Mesmerizing, and Mystical These are just a few words that I can’t seem to shake from my mind as I try to recover from the experience of reading The Bird and the Sword.  I sit at my computer wondering how to conjure up words that will do this book even a hint of justice.  The gift that lies in between the first and last pages of The Bird and the Sword is the rare and beautiful gift of writing genius.  It’s a gift that is utterly spellbinding, has the power to transport you into another world, and will leave you wondering how to summon […]

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2) by Susan Mallery

Flashback Friday: Falling for Gracie (Los Lobos, #2)  by Susan Mallery

Dorsey’s Review 5 Feel Good Stars!! Fourteen-year-old Gracie Landon falls in love with eighteen-year-old Riley Whitefield, really truly in love. Her antics to discourage him from dating got so out of hand that she made the local small town newspaper which became to be known as “The Gracie Chronicles”. Her mother, in desperation, and in what was supposed to be a temporary solution, shipped Gracie off to live with her aunt and uncle, however, it would be 14 years until she finally returns. Much to Gracie’s dismay, her antics are town lore and NOT forgotten. “She’d been so hopeful that people would forget her.” Gracie is now a successful and popular wedding […]

Review: Saddle Up (Hot Cowboy Nights #4) by Victoria Vane

Review: Saddle Up (Hot Cowboy Nights #4) by Victoria Vane

Karla’s Review 3.5 Stars! While I loved the detail about the plight of the  mustangs I felt that it might have overshadowed the romance element in the story. For that reason, I had a hard time feeling the chemistry between the 2 main protagonists, Keith and Miranda. I loved them well enough as individuals but I didn’t get that all-consuming feeling that they belonged together, something I look for in my romance reads. I also would have liked more information as to why Keith had the falling out with his tribe due to the documentary that was filmed about him. There were bits and pieces but nothing concrete that would help […]

Review Rewind: Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne

Review Rewind: Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne

Steffi’s Review 5 Stars! What a pleasant surprise! Silver Lining is the story of Low Down or Louise Downe, a woman who just wants to be one of the guys. Or rather she has to be because she is one of many prospectors searching for gold in the Rockies. When everyone around her suddenly falls ill, Low Down nurses the men through the pox. In return, they agree to grant her, her deepest wish. Low Down’s deepest most heartfelt wish is….a baby but no one volunteers for the job, so the men have a drawing. The man who has to step in for his friends and comrades is Max McCord. When […]

Review: One Small Thing (One Thing #1) by Piper Vaughn & M.J. O’Shea

Review: One Small Thing (One Thing #1) by Piper Vaughn & M.J. O’Shea

Karla’s Review 5 Satisfying Stars! Beautiful, heart-warming LOVE story! The first few pages into this book I thought I was going to read about “Club Kids” and didn’t think the read was for me, but I kept at it and boy am I glad I did. Rue works in a dance club and is a somewhat flamboyant character, but he’s also hard-working, devoted, loving and when life dealt him an unexpected hand he was up to the challenge! Without a moment of hesitation…yes, he wanted his baby! He embraced fatherhood and was an exceptional dad! That in itself made for a beautiful story, but then bring the sheltered, quirky, anxious, owl-eyed Erik […]

Review: Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels #2) by Lisa Kleypas

Review: Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels #2) by Lisa Kleypas

Crista’s Review 5 Stars! This is the Lisa Kleypas that I know and love.  When she is writing at the top of her game, no one compares, and I am thrilled to report that Lisa Kleypas is writing at the top of her game!  The best part of the first book in this series, Cold Hearted Rake, was Rhys Winterborne and Lady Helen, so I have been eagerly awaiting their book, Marrying Winterborne! Rhys Winterborne is the quintessential Kleypas hero: a self-made and filthy rich entrepreneur, who lives with shame and doesn’t feel like he will ever be worthy.  Rhys nearly died after a horrible accident in the first book, and […]
