U.S. Marshal-turned-Sheriff Taylor James can trace her family back to the original thirteen Marshals appointed by George Washington.

Convince good friend and hot neighbor Dr. Gabriel Adams to give her dating lessons since his dance card is always full.

A survivor of childhood leukemia with no guarantee his remission will last, Gabe lives by two rules: Don’t get emotionally involved and don’t let his well organized life spiral out of control. When he’s given a baby, with his name on her birth certificate, he needs Taylor’s help. But dangling dating lessons in exchange? If that will get the dedicated sheriff to lend a helping hand, could it be a bargain worth making?

The Sheriff's Baby Bargain (Angel Point, #1)The Sheriff’s Baby Bargain by Susan Lute

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, wow!
I just loved this book! While some of the story was a little predictable, there were original elements that were new to me. I honestly thought the ending might go a bit different from how it actually did. And while that was just a teeny bit disappointing, I found after reading the last page, that I couldn’t have been happier that Gabe and Taylor found their happily-ever-after. I finished this book several days ago and this couple, this book is still on my mind.

All the characters in this story added more complexity and enjoyment for me. Especially Daisy and Rose. And while there were plenty of secondary characters, that fact did not take the spotlight away from Gabe and Taylor. The synopsis of this book does a good job letting you know what to expect but the talent in which this author weaved this story made The Sheriff’s Baby Bargain so much more. There was some angst, suspense and even some guessing on my part. I don’t want to say there are dark elements to this story, but there is a bit of a cloud shadowing all the happy. As, I mentioned, I wasn’t 100% sure how this book was going to end. But I’m so pleased with how it did.

This is the first in the Angel Point series. I am so in love with this small, enchanting town and I can’t wait to see what comes next. I definitely recommend this sweet romance!

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

Is home where the heart is…

Will an ocean keep them apart, or will true hearts win?

You will love this sexy romcom with plenty of steam because true hearts always find a way to be together.

Wild Heart (My True Heart, #1)Wild Heart by Autumn Archer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hayden Taylor and Summer Brady…..

The first thing I need to express is my adoration for Hayden. Not only was he hard-working, sexy, intense and intimidating cowboy, Hayden was a gentleman. He was considerate and so sweet when it came to Summer.

The blurb for this book gives us a very good depiction of the premise. A city girl from Ireland, Summer, is sent to Texas to live with her mother‘s uncle for a couple of months. Her mother has gotten sick and tired of Summer always partying and being irresponsible. Summer is basically living a shallow, self-centered life and all she cares about is when and where the next party will be. Of course, she is not happy to be sent all the way to Texas from Ireland; it is a punishment she feels she does not deserve. I have to tell you after reading this book I completely agree with Summer’ mother. Summer did need this to find perspective and maybe learn to be a less self-centered and grow in maturity.

Hayden works hard for a living on his family’s ranch with his dad. It is a life he loves, a life that gives him satisfaction and contentment. I enjoyed the setting of the ranch and the dynamic between Hayden and his dad as well as the dynamic between Hayden and his friends. There was plenty of wit and banter between the characters in this book which brought more enjoyment to my reading. I have to say it again…I loved Hayden.

While some aspects of the story are predictable I still enjoyed it and I am looking forward to the next book in the series, which will feature one of Hayden‘s friends and I suspect Summer’s friend who comes to Texas for a visit.

The one small disappointment I had with this story is that I felt Summer was very immature. Even when her character developed into a better person I still felt like she was too young for Hayden. That could just be my feelings and you should read this story to decide that on your own. Also, In the beginning chapters Summer was hard to like. Besides her beauty, I couldn’t understand what Hayden saw in her. But as each day went on their relationship grew and developed into strong feelings for each other.

The authors did a good job with giving me an enjoyable story and a new book boyfriend. By the end of the book I grew to like Summer’s character and I was happy with the way things turned out. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

This is my unbiased and honest review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Synopsis:

Is she restoring “this old house” or reimagining her future with the man she left behind?

Man down.
When “Diamond” Jim McCall gambles on a fixer-upper for sentimental reasons, his house of cards implodes – along with his health. Ruby’s ready for a job change but agreeing to become her first crush’s apprentice might be her biggest mistake. She doesn’t doubt they can “flip” the derelict ranch house and save Summit Construction, but at what cost to her heart? After all, Boone Fielding became the son her father never had when she left for college.

Man up.
Helping Ruby McCall and her sisters flip Diamond Jim’s “money pit” makes sense financially, but he can’t partner with someone he doesn’t trust – and Boone hasn’t forgotten his last close encounter with Ruby. But every day on the job reminds him of why he fell in love with her in the first place.

How is he ever going to let her go when the job is done?

Montana Blueprint for Love (Property Sisters Book 1)Montana Blueprint for Love by Debra Salonen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first book in a new series and I think it’s off to a good start. Montana Blueprint for Love introduces a lot of characters. And of course, we get a cameo here and there with some of our favorite Marietta citizens from past stories.

An aspect I would have appreciated additionally in this book was to have more interaction and dialogue with Ruby and Boone and a bit less with everyone else. Of course, I understand that first books are the ones that give us glimpses into the next books but I felt this book could have had a bit less of that. I’m being selfish I guess, because I wanted more of the H/h.

I loved watching Ruby and Boone try to navigate a relationship that wasn’t romantic despite their buried feelings for each other. They were careful and hesitant around each other. And at the same time, looked forward to when they worked together every day. Ruby’s father made some very poor choices and now Ruby, along with her sisters and Boone are having to literally and figuratively “fix” the mess he made.

The premise of the book was interesting. The way the H/h and Jim evolved as characters was engaging and believable. My favorite character in this book was Boone. He was kind, considerate, selfless and a gentleman. Without giving anything away, I will tell you that Boone had every reason to be angry and if he decided to walk away from Ruby and her family, I couldn’t blame him nor would I have thought less of him.

The chemistry between Ruby and Boone was a slow burn and didn’t ‘set fire’ until much later in the book. I actually enjoyed the slow pace of their relationship growing into something more. The pace made this story believable.

I have read this author several times before and always enjoyed her books. Ruby has two sisters who will have their stories told in the next books in which we were given glimpses into. That said, I know we will be seeing a lot more of Ruby and Boone and I am going to be looking out for those books which I know we won’t have to wait too long for. One of my favorite aspects about Tule Publishing is their ability to publish the next books in a series in a timeframe that won’t have you having to reread previous books to catch up. Most of my favorite series are published by Tule.

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

Synopsis:

If I could wish for one thing, it would be to have never met my ex. He took my money, cheated on me, and saddled me with an impossible mortgage.

Now, just as I’m fighting to put my life back together, I find an unusual bottle with a note inside: “You get one wish. Make it count.” Har har. Someone’s idea of a joke?

But nothing could prepare me for what comes next or for the screamin’ hot man with piercing blue eyes who shows up at my door, making demands.

I should slam the door in his sex-god face, because this guy has trouble written all over him. But I can’t. Suddenly I do have a wish…

📝My Review📝:

WishWish by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

My rating: 4  🌟🌟🌟🌟

Wish by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff was not a premise that I’ve read before. It is described by the author as contemporary romance. However, I found myself wondering throughout the first half of the book whether or not this could be Paranormal/fantasy. The author entertained me and kept me guessing because while this book is definitely of the contemporary genre, there are magical and whimsical elements throughout the pages. I found myself trying to unravel the mystery that is the hero, Marus. The reveal is slow and steady. And during all the information brought forth to me, I still wondered, “Is this guy for real?” I would definitely admit the author kept me engaged.

I thought this book was imaginative and fun, until it wasn’t. That said, there are some dark moments that come to light during the last chapters and because of that Marus became someone I didn’t like. Don’t worry, he does redeem himself and there is a beautiful happy ending. But I’m afraid to say, even with that ending, I couldn’t forget Marus’ actions or the hurtful words he spoke to Ginnie. I’m sorry to say, it bothered me a lot. In addition, another element of the book I was disappointed with was the lapse of time between the “incident” and the reconciliation. Also, I really wished this book was written in dual POV; I would have loved to be inside Marus’ head. Hey, that’s just my personal opinion and you may very likely not feel the same. Mimi Jean is a great story teller and I read several of her books prior to Wish which I enjoyed very much. Just because this book hit a bump for me doesn’t mean I hated it. I did enjoy it right up to almost the end. And as this is a fun and original premise, I recommend it. And as I mentioned, there were only a couple of aspects that disappointed me, personally. You might be fine with them.

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

Synopsis:

Opposites resist—and attract—under the Cancún sun in this emotional Accidental Billionaires novel by New York Times bestselling author J.S. Scott.

Years ago, Noah Sinclair promised his dying mother that he’d stay strong and work hard for his younger brothers and sisters. Even with the Sinclairs’ newfound wealth, Noah has never steered from that blue-collar drive. His siblings think it’s time—with the gift of a Cancún vacation. To Noah, being forced to relax isn’t bliss. It’s a chore. Especially under the watch of a beautiful family friend enlisted to make sure every laptop under the sun stays closed.

All Andie has to do is convince a handsome billionaire to take a deep breath? It should be a dream for the bohemian travel writer. If Noah—a workhorse so resistant to change—weren’t spoiling for a fight. But no matter how hard Noah pushes her away, Andie is pushing back. She promised she’d teach Noah to embrace every pleasure in life. It’s a promise she made to herself once, too.

What begins as a battle of wills becomes a chance for Noah and Andie to open their hearts and share their fears. Night after intimate night. It’s the last thing they expected from Cancún, and it’s what they need the most. Even if it isn’t supposed to be forever.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Enchanted (The Accidental Billionaires #4)Enchanted by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

During the past year or so, J.S. Scott has become my favorite author in the Billionaire Romance category. With her stories, it’s not all about the money. Her characters bring passion, complexity and sincerity to every page. Especially, The Accidental Billionaires series. Each book I read in the series becomes my favorite. And Enchanted was no exception. In fact, I’d say it’s my favorite J.S. Scott book to date. And another aspect that is so great, is that I haven’t yet read all her Billionaire books. Looking forward to that as soon as I can find some extra time. Also, this author can write a story with all the feels, the angst is always enough to keep you invested but not over -the -top. I love my happy endings but sometimes to get there, the angst is just too much and I find I just want a book to end already. But not with this author, and not with this book. I was engaged in every word until the very end. I just can’t wait until the next Sinclair sibling gets their book!

Noah and Andie…..
Ok…if you have read any books in this series, then you know these Sinclair siblings did not grow up Billionaires. In fact, they have had a very tough life. The oldest sibling, Noah, has had to grow up too soon. Since his late teens, he has been the provider, protector and what holds what’s left of his family together. The dynamic between the Sinclair siblings was amazing; believable. They loved each other and were loyal to each other to a fault.

Even now, when money is not and will never be an issue again, Noah can’t seem to turn his obsessiveness to provide for his siblings off. It has not yet sunk in, that being poor will never be an issue again. I want to stop here and say that my heart belonged to Noah from very early on. His character was endearing and there was just nothing negative about his personality, except for his workaholic persona.

When Noah’s siblings send him on a two-week vacation, the first he’s ever had, Noah is annoyed and frustrated. He doesn’t want to go away, doesn’t want to stop working, doesn’t believe he is entitled to have any fun. Despite his complaints about the vacation, he goes as not to upset his siblings.

Andie has her own sad, and traumatic story, one I will not go into because that is an aspect that makes this book more emotional. I just can’t spoil that for you. Andie is a travel journalist with her own blog and she just happens to be Noah’s youngest brother’s best friend. When he asks her to go on vacation with Noah and make sure he has fun instead of working, Andie is delighted. First because she loves traveling. Second because she would never say no to Owen. And thirdly, because once upon a time, Noah’s kindness and welcoming persona gave Andie something she never had but desperately needed at a young time in her life.

As you read each page, more of the story will unfold. Andie and Noah find themselves both having a great time with each other. But when the two-week vacation is over, the real angst begins. I loved every single page of the book! Every word. This author knows how to write incredible stories with heart and passion. In addition, her characters are some of my favorites ever found on the pages.

I absolutely recommend this book! Enchanted is a standalone and the series can be read out of order but to have to best reading experience, I recommend you start from the beginning.

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

Synopsis:

Should he stay, or go…

Nurse Dee McNamara knew heartbreak and tragedy. She’s a survivor but has built high walls to protect her heart. She takes care of everyone but herself, yet never imagined finding another man she’d be able to trust until one day she offered a ride to a tall, darkly handsome cowboy whose eyes hold the same pain and mistrust.

Rio Montez is a man with secrets, and he arrives at Braxton Ranch on a mission to find answers about his father. He thinks the truth will finally give him the peace to finally move on. He never counted on finding the woman who offered answers to his questions.

Rio’s always had a plan until now. Does he leave Braxton Ranch or stay and build a life he never dreamed possible with a woman he’s afraid he’s falling hard for.

Homeward Bound, Cowboy (Blood Brothers, #2)Homeward Bound, Cowboy by Debra Holt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven’t read the first book in this series but after reading, “Homeward Bound, Cowboy” I am compelled to because I loved the characters from the previous book. This book features Rio and Dee. I’m going to be careful with this review as there is a bit of a twist and some personal secrets that will be revealed by both hero and heroine as you read along. This book has a steady pace with a good flow, so you won’t wait long as things come to light. However, you might wonder how a happily-ever-after will fit in. At least I wondered.

The premise of this book was one I enjoyed and hate at the same time. I could never understand how family could treat family so poorly. But on the other hand, when the story is of this type of emotional nature, the happy ending is so much more appreciated.

Rio has come to Braxton with an agenda. Get closure and move on. He prefers to wander rather than settle down anywhere. Rio is searching for more than information; he just doesn’t know it yet. I really liked Rio’s character. While he was a bit aloof at times, it was easy to see he was a good person despite the hard times of his youth. Determined to keep his distance from the people he finds himself around, and caring for their wellbeing is not what Rio expects when he takes a job with the Braxton family. Soon enough, Rio’s icy heart begins to melt and he will find himself with decisions to make regarding a future he never expected and is not sure he wants. But there is one thing he wants; one person specifically.

Dee is a nurse and very close friends with the Braxton family. So, visiting the Braxton ranch is a part of her life. This sweet, caring woman has a tragic past. Because of that, Dee is afraid to get too close to any man, and it is very difficult for her to trust. But after she meets Rio, Dee can’t stop the feelings she has regarding this tough, aloof and sometimes rude, cowboy. There is just something about his character that draws her closer, despite her hesitancy.

The chemistry and attraction are present between Dee and Rio from the first moments they meet. That attraction only grows more each time they find themselves in the same room together. As they become closer, the story’s angst builds. By this time in the book, we are aware of Rio’s secret. Dee is not. I won’t tell you the specifics of her reaction when she learns the truth. But from that moment, the book takes a turn and you will be on the end of your seat praying for a happy ending. You will, because these two wonderful characters deserve that. With each other!

This was the first book in the Blood Brothers Series. As I said earlier in my review, I definitely want to read book one. Book three will be coming soon, I hope, and I am looking forward to that. “Homeward Bound, Cowboy” is another enjoyable book from author Debra Holt and I recommend it.

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

Synopsis:

What happens when a sexy workaholic CEO and pilot meets a spirited woman with a passion for helping pandas?

Liam Parker, the eldest of the Parkers, has helped build the family business to be the best elite charter airline service in the world.

Pandas are Heaven Samson’s whole world. When she escaped the darkness that had become her life, she found refuge in the unconditional love of these beautiful creatures. That very love pushed her to move past trying times, build her self esteem and root her feet back on solid ground to become the strong independent woman she is.

Can two hearts so dedicated to what they love make any room to let in who they love?

Take Me Away (Cockpit, #1)Take Me Away by Britney Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Take Me Away is technically book one in the Cockpit series. However, during the holidays, Cockpit Christmas, starring the Parker parents was the introduction to the series. That was a perfect novella and because of it, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the first book. And now that I’ve read it, I can’t wait for the next Parker sibling to get their story. This book wasn’t very long and yet, I felt nothing rushed. Character and relationship development were perfect. I have a good feeling that this will be a great series and one of my favorites. In addition, I have found two new authors to love.

This book features Liam Parker, the wealthy CEO of Parker airlines and his heroine, Heaven. Liam is also a pilot, which is sexy in itself. Liam, unfortunately, is a workaholic and he prefers it that way. But recently, he has been wondering what it would be like to be in a committed relationship. He decides he is not opposed to it. That said, he isn’t actively looking for a partner. That is, until he meets the sassy, spirited and outspoken Heaven.

Heaven is decidedly and justifiably wary of being in any relationship, especially with Liam Parker, a man who is out of her league. Past experience has put a fear of being in a relationship in Heaven. I won’t give you details but I will tell you that Heaven’s heart was no match for Liam’s charm and determination. These two have some obstacles to get over. And while I, myself, wondered how things would work out given their lifestyles were so different, the authors gave me the happily-ever-after I needed.

Really, this was such a good book and I can’t wait for the next Parker’s book! I hope that won’t be a long wait.

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

Synopsis:

A match made in heaven…

When strong, independent cowgirl Jessie McBride meets former Green Beret Asher Chapman while doing PT for her broken leg, the two share an instant bond. Jessie rescues and raises mustangs, while Asher established and runs a foundation that matches veterans with shelter animals. The immediate, fiery physical connection between them is even stronger.

A conflict born in hell

Unlike the girlfriend who left him after discovering the full extent of his injuries, Asher knows Jessie can handle his physical wounds. But he doesn’t believe any woman could handle the secret he can’t even face himself. Much as he wants her…and is becoming convinced he loves her, he can’t risk disclosing what haunts him.

Jessie can’t understand why Asher emotionally pulls her close only to push her away again. Can this wounded warrior learn to trust Jessie to love all of him before he drives her away for good?

📝My Review📝:

Heart of the Texas Warrior (Heart of Texas, #4)Heart of the Texas Warrior by Eve Gaddy

4.5 Stars
Heart of the Texas Warrior by Eve Gaddy is book four in the Heart of Texas Series. As with another recent series I read from Tule Publishing, I only read the last two books. But that’s ok because I had no trouble following along with any aspect. Each book, while interconnected by family, has its own premise. That’s not to say, I won’t go back and read the series’s prior books. I definitely will as soon as I can find some time. I loved all the characters, including the McBride siblings that I haven’t read yet.

Eve Gaddy is definitely not a new author for me. I have enjoyed all the books I have had the pleasure of reading, by her.

Jessie and Asher…..
Jessie McBride is the youngest of four siblings and a pure cowgirl. While her older brothers are either doctors or a paramedic/firefighter, Jessie stays true to her heart’s desire by running the family horse aspect of the ranch. Raising and rescuing mustangs isn’t just a job for Jessie. It’s her passion. So, when she breaks her leg and is unable to work as usual, she is beyond grumpy and frustrated. Jessie is the type of person who prefers to do things herself, no matter her limitations.

Asher has been honorably discharged from the military for the last couple of years. Asher has his own issues and as a result, he is afraid to be completely honest with Jessie for fear of losing her. Unfortunately, Asher has had a past experience which makes him very hesitant of opening up to Jessie about his fears. I won’t go into any details because every aspect of Jessie and Asher’s story is entertaining and heartwarming. I truly loved Asher’s character. He was so perfect for Jessie and her stubbornness. Jessie was also perfect for Asher. Her love for him was unconditional. Their whole relationship was endearing, and believable. And boy oh boy, there were some steamy moments between them.

If you love romance with ex-military heroes and headstrong heroines, with the addition of some absolutely loving dogs, I recommend this book. Actually, I recommend this book to anyone looking for sigh-worthy ending regardless of the premise and trope.

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

Synopsis:

The spark is still there… and brighter than ever

Cowgirl Sage Highwater had some tough times growing up: she was the only girl in a family of five, and the youngest to boot. She lost her amazing father and her closest sibling on the same day. And two years later, the boy she loved down to her soul left her behind without a word.

Growing up, Scott Parrish had been the talk of Last Stand, Texas, and never in a good way. At odds with his family, he’d constantly courted trouble. No one seemed to care or understand him, except Sage. At seventeen he’d been given a chance to make something of his life. He’d seized it, but at the expense of leaving the girl he loved. Ten years later he’s back, but not to stay.

Is a few days enough for even a determined cowgirl to convince the bad boy-turned-hero to finally give their love a chance in the hometown he’s hated for years?

Lone Star Reunion (Texas Justice, #4)Lone Star Reunion by Justine Davis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lone Star Reunion is book four in the Texas Justice series from author Justine Davis. I’ve had the pleasure of reading books #3 & #4. Since book #5 is one I am highly anticipating, I want to read the books I missed beforehand as soon as possible. I love nothing better than a family series that I can go back on and binge read. I’m sure this will be one of them. Last Stand Texas stars in quite a few series from Tule Publishing; one of my top five favorite publishers. In addition, this author, Justine Davis, is not a new author to me. I have read and enjoyed several of her works. If you love small-town feel romance with a bit of angst and some suspense thrown in and a satisfying happily-ever-after, I recommend this book as well as this series.

Sage is the youngest in a family of five and the fourth Highwater to find true love. Her story is emotional. Scott, Sage’s hero has his own emotional demons. I won’t get into details about his past, however I will tell you that I have never read a scenario such as his. At first, Scott’s situation didn’t feel believable and definitely not relatable. I couldn’t understand how any parents could behave so horribly toward their own children. But as I read on, I became engaged in Sage and Scott’s story, even wondering if there would be a happy ending for them. There was, and as a result I was genuinely pleased with how things turned out in the end. Very pleased, in fact.

So, if you’ve read this series or only one or two books such as I have, then you know the remaining sibling has gone missing. Kane left Last Stand and hasn’t returned for over a decade. The rest of the Highwater siblings haven’t given up looking for him. And in each book, they become closer to finding their missing brother. I personally cannot wait for Kane’s story. I suspect that book will be the most heartbreaking. But that’s ok, because with that heartbreak, Justine Davis will no doubt give us a beautiful ending.

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