Title: His Lady
Series: Wounded Souls Series, Book Four
Author: Leah Sharelle
Genre: MC/Former Soldier Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2018
A place without you, Lady, ain’t anywhere I want to be.
I love you, Rainn.
MANNIX
Mannix Steel lives by one rule—loyalty always.
It helped him through one hellish deployment where he lost an eye, friends died, and his twin lost his leg. Worst of all, he lost his family. The Wounded Souls’ enforcer decided life was easier without letting his heart make the decisions. That’s why the club’s sexy dancer is perfect for him, no strings, no promises, and no heartache. At least, that’s what he thought, but when Rainn goes missing, Mannix realises she means much more to him.
RAINN
As the spotlight dancer for the Wounded Souls’ strip club, Body and Souls, Rainn Storm knows how to use her body. She is a woman who is strong, independent—and deeply in love with the club’s rough-around-the-edges enforcer, Mannix. They have been in an open relationship for years, but that’s not enough for her now—especially since she has a secret that could destroy everything she has with her lover.

Will Mannix and Rainn ever see eye to eye on their relationship? Or will the dangerous Rogue destroy it for them?


I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn’t happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don’t do angst, in fact it drives me crazy.
 


I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.

I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.

I love Pina Colada’s and getting caught in the rain….. there’s that weird humor.

Olivia Adams is smart, independent and firmly believes less, is most definitely, more. Nothing about Ronan McKinley and his luxurious yachts and expensive homes appeals to her, but there is no denying the attraction between them.

When Ronan makes her a job offer she can’t refuse, Olivia makes it clear she has no intention of anything more than a professional relationship with this man whose lifestyle is anything but “less”.

But what happens when Olivia slowly discovers Ronan is much more than she ever could have imagined?

What if she fills Ronan’s cold, gray life with warmth and color?

Is it possible that these two people, from vastly different worlds are actually meant to be?

 


 

Ronan was the knight in shining armor she had never dreamed of or needed, and Olivia was the color in his cold gray life.
He loved her sass, and much to her surprise, she didn’t mind when he took control.
They shared a moon.
They were meant to be.
Until the nightmares of their pasts rock their newfound happiness putting the magic they share to the test.
They’ll soon discover if they have what it takes to fight their way back to each other. To share their moon, once again.

Cover Designer: DerangedDoctorDesign
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Zack is the total package. He’s young, intelligent, gorgeous, and he’s also the CEO of a very successful construction company. No wonder men despise him while women throw themselves at his feet. 

When a friend insists Zack wouldn’t know a hard day’s work if it hit him in the face, he has no choice but to prove his friend wrong. But what Zack didn’t count on was getting distracted by the brown-eyed beauty from sales and marketing. 

Claire is feisty, confident, and has the potential to become a huge complication. Yet he can’t stop wanting her in ways which are completely inappropriate since…well, he’s her boss. 

But she doesn’t know that. Not yet, anyway. 
So, for now, he’ll keep his teeny-tiny secret and be her boss…undercover.

Oh, minus one for her. Bonus points for his apparently egotistical self. She did drop them, not because he startled her, because she heard him coming, but because Mr. Abs made a grand entrance. Literally. Oh, she would have paid her neighbours to have seen the mean pecs on him, the parallel train tracks chiselled to his chest, and that dangerous upside-down triangle leading into treachery. Oh, mother of pancakes. This was not good. “Can—” she cleared her throat, “can I help you?” Blinking, she looked anywhere but his chest. “The hot water. It’s different than the shower I had. 

Do you mind?” he said, faintly grinning. It was deliberate. She knew he had her trapped, for the time being, where he wanted her. Did she also mention he was wearing nothing but a white towel riding low on his hips? No? “I suppose,” she squeaked, turning down the gas on the hob before following him to the bathroom. He stepped aside as she headed in, switched on the shower, and turned the dial slowly to the left. “Here,” she said, “you just have to turn it this way. It should have already been on hot, but I guess I forgot to change it when I had a cold shower,” she explained, slowly pulling her arm back from behind the shower curtain. “Oh, I see.” “Cool.” His hand went for his towel, immediately ringing alarm bells. “Whoa, whoa!” she exclaimed, covering her eyes. “I’m still here, y’know?” “I know.” She pulled her hands away, raising her eyebrows. His towel was still intact. “Keep it hidden, pal,” she warned. “There’s two people under this roof, you know.” Zack was biting back so hard. “Won’t happen, again, Ma’am,” he apologised, smiling as she daggered her eyes at him. She left then, hot-headed and disappointed at her female hormones. If there was one thing she wanted to be good at, it was singling out the jerks. She had barely become acquainted with the man and already he was gonna give her the full Monty show.
Romance is just one thing J.S.Badham cannot get enough of! Whether it’s the typical cliché love-at-first-sight or I-hate-you-but-also-love-you compelling stories, they’re always close to her heart! Most will probably see it as trash literature but love is what makes the world go around! So, why not romance?
Her spark for writing began at the age of fifteen; a passion ignited thanks to her favourite author, Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires) encouraging her that writing is the ability to be able to share inner stories and connect to the world.

J.S.Badham’s journey began on Wattpad, her path continues to grow, she continues to learn hoping that some day she’ll share a story that is inspiring.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews comes A True Cowboy Christmas, the first in a sensational series debut about a cowboy, a farm girl, and the greatest gift of all. . .

Gray Everett has a heart of gold but that doesn’t mean he believes in the magic of Christmas. He’s got plenty else to worry about this holiday season, what with keeping his cattle ranch in the family and out of the hands of hungry real-estate investors looking to make a down-and-dirty deal. That, plus being a parent to his young and motherless daughter, equals a man who will not rest until he achieves his mission. Now, all Gray needs is the help of his lifelong neighbor. . .who happens to have grown into a lovely, spirited woman.

For Abby Douglas, the chance to join forces with Gray is nothing less than a Christmas miracle. Much as the down-to-earth farmer’s daughter has tried to deny it, Abby’s been in love with stern, smoking-hot Gray her whole life. So when Gray proposes a marriage of convenience as a way to combine land—and work together toward a common cause—Abby can’t refuse. But how can she convince Gray that sometimes life offers a man a second chance for a reason. . .and that their growing trust and mutual passion may be leading to true and lasting love?

My Review:

A True Cowboy Christmas (Cold River Ranch)A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…..
Loved this book so much! A very well written novel with great characters.

I knew from the first chapter this book would be a breath of fresh air. And I was not disappointed in my assumption. First I’ll say that this was my first book by Caitlin Crews. I really loved everything about her writing style. Her descriptive monologues and scenes brought me right there to those Colorado mountains. I will add that this book is heavy on monologue. I would have like to read more dialogue from our hero and heroine. That said, I still loved this book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author. This series has two more brothers to match off. And I can only hope they are matched with Abby’s two friends. Unfortunately I was not given any hints as to what is to come and whose story is next so I’ll patiently wait and see. But I can assure you this author is on my watch list.

Gray and Abby…..
I won’t summarize this book. The blurb gives you great insight as to how this will play out. Marriage of convenience is not a trope I often come across unless it’s a historical romance. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy reading them. I do. Quite a bit, actually. Gray is a bit older than Abby, who is thirty herself. He has a teenage daughter, two alienated brothers and a whole ranch to run. After his father passes away, Gray feels the need for a change in his life. He doesn’t want to be lonely. He wants companionship and to find a woman he can work along side without drama. Unfortunately for Abby, Gray does not want “feelings” involved. There is quite a bit of angst. A lot of chemistry. Abby is a wonderful character. Unfortunately while I liked Gray, I didn’t love him until the end. But that is okay because otherwise this book would not have been as perfect. Gray had a lot of issues and he needed to come to terms with many aspects of his life. He especially needed to learn that loving Abby and allowing her to love him was currently the best thing that could happen to him. I don’t want to spoil anything for you. That said, I will say that this is a book I would like to reread each Christmas. I loved it that much!

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time read it. 🙂

*SYNOPSIS*

Braxton has spent six years running from his past and the memories that haunt him. The loss of the girl who owns his heart and his best friend unleashed the dark in him. Part of a world of crime and murder, Brax knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s got to give. He has to find her – Isabelle.
The girl he’s loved since she saved him that fateful day when they were nothing more than just kids.
The day she went away was the day he lost his heart. That was the day he became everyone’s worst nightmare.

He became a monster. He is hated, feared, and has nothing left to live for.

Isabelle has lived the last six years of her life without hope and in total isolation. Now she finds herself in the clutches of evil with no way out.

All she dreams of is to be reunited with the one boy who showed her what it means to truly be loved. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

In a moment that will change both of their lives forever, Brax comes face to face with the girl who, for six years, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they dreamed they’d have.

Can he save the girl he once lost, or will the fight cost him more than he could ever imagine?

FROM NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY & WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR J.S. SCOTT COMES A NEW STORY IN 
THE BILLIONAIRE’S OBSESSION SERIES.
 
BILLIONAIRE UNCHALLENGED IS NOW LIVE!
 

 

What happens when you’re instantly drawn and inexplicably attracted to a man you haven’t really met?
 
Me? Well, I left a party like my butt was on fire when it happened to me. Arrogant, wealthy and physically perfect men were nothing but trouble, even if I was mesmerized by a man with all of those attributes.
 
Unfortunately, we met again–in person this time– when I literally collided with Carter Lawson in the flesh several days later, and discovered he was a man I just couldn’t stay away from, no matter how much I tried. He felt the same attraction, and was determined to make it impossible for me not to see him.
 
My body craved him, and as I got to know the real man behind the jaded billionaire, womanizer facade, I was surprised to discover that I actually liked him.
 
He’s the quintessential alpha male that I normally hate, but there’s something I see in him that nobody else does, a pain I recognize in his glacier-like eyes–because I’m just like him. Both of us are frauds.
 
I want to crack him like an egg, and see what’s inside, but there’s no way I want him to do the same thing to me.
 
On the surface, I’m a successful supermodel with a great career.
 
Inside, I’m someone else, a woman that nobody sees–until Carter slowly breaks through my defensive walls as well as he satisfies my body, starting to open wounds that have never really healed.
 
But there’s only so much I can let Carter see. Revealing everything could ruin my entire life and the career I’d worked so hard to build.
 
So why was it so hard to lie to Carter like I’d been doing with everyone else my entire life?

He’s the king of the Upper East Side. A playboy with a
penchant for fast cars and beautiful girls. And I just woke up beside him…
In a perfect world, I would never have gone to one of the Delaney brothers’
fabled summer parties. He wouldn’t have kissed me. And he wouldn’t be making my
body do wicked, beautiful things when he calls out my name or touches me.Thank god the world’s not perfect.

But Bennett Delaney is. He’s filthy rich and arrogant. So achingly gorgeous
that my heart skips a beat when he looks at me.

I’m the daughter of his family’s nanny- turned-housekeeper. The scholarship
student from Queens. The girl who’s had a thing for him her whole life. The one
currently tangled up in his sheets. Again.

I know I shouldn’t get attached. That this might end as quickly as it started.
That falling in love with Bennett is wrong.

I know all this but my heart?

It’s already his.
