Review: Start Me Up

Book Review: Start Me Up, by Nicole Michaels


✩✩


Single mom Anne Edmond can handle—and hand-make—just about anything. From table settings to party favors, floral arrangements to nursery décor, there is no project her creativity and a glue gun can't tackle. But dating? That's a whole 'nother story. Case in point: Mike Everett. He's a gorgeous mechanic and known car-whisperer, a man who can work with auto parts like nobody's business. And he has thrown a monkey wrench into Anne's carefully-crafted life…
One look at Anne is enough for Mike to know that she's no fixer-upper. She's perfect just the way she is—and the chemistry between them works like a charm. Mike's always been a no-strings kind of guy, but Anne's impressive self-reliance—and gorgeous exterior—gives him pause. This time, a fast joyride just doesn't seem like enough.

Review: Sign, Seal, Deliver

Book Review: Sign, Seal, Deliver, by Rogenna Brewer

✩✩


Lt Zach Prince, call sign ‘Renegade’, is a hotshot naval aviator. If only he could control the woman he wants the way he can a fighter jet … but a painful secret from their shared past has landed him squarely in the ‘friend zone.’ Michelle’s waved him off so many times Zach’s beginning to give up hope they’ll ever be together. So when he’s tapped to join the SEAL Teams, he knows this may be his last shot to make things right before he leaves.
Lt Michelle Dann fought hard to become a fighter pilot. There’s only one thing she wants more than to fly jets, but she’s convinced it’s the challenge that keeps Zach on the hook. And that’s why she has to be the one to put some distance between them. Her call sign, ‘Rapunzel’, stands for more than her trademark long hair … she’s smart, resourceful and not waiting around for any man to rescue her.
But when Michelle’s fighter jet crashes in the desert, nothing can stop Zach from going after her … even if finding her means losing her all over again.

Review: My Wild Highlander

Book Review: My Wild Highlander, by Vonda Sinclair

✩✩


Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past. She wants nothing to do with the sensual Scottish warrior that the king has ordered her to marry because the rogue could never be a faithful husband, but she has little choice in the matter. Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she’s in dire need of his protection.

Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him—Angelique. Can he break through her icy façade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?

Review: Red Clover Inn

Book Review: Red Clover Inn, by Carla Neggers


✩✩


Marine archaeologist Charlotte Bennett is no stranger to risk, but her dives into sunken wreckage are always meticulously planned. However, being the maid of honor in her cousin Samantha's English wedding gives her a new perspective on her life as a nomad who's given up on romance altogether. Though an encounter with roguish wedding guest Greg Rawlings leaves her unsettled, the other people she meets make a trip to the tranquil town of Knights Bridge, Massachusetts, enticing. Acting on impulse, Charlotte offers to house-sit at Red Clover Inn while Sam and Justin Sloan are away on their honeymoon. 
The quaint inn isn't open to the public yet and Charlotte will have quiet time to plan her next project. It might also give her a chance to see how her cousin found love and a sense of family. But the peace is immediately disrupted when Greg shows up at the inn. The Diplomatic Security Service agent lives a dangerous life, and he, too, wants to clear his head before his next assignment. Juggling work, raising his two teenage children and nursing a wounded heart has left him jaded, and the last thing he expects is to find himself falling for the willful Charlotte. As the attraction between them flares, Charlotte realizes she might be in too deep. And each of them must decide if they can put love first before it's too late.

Review: Widow Woman

Book Review: Widow Woman, by Patricia McLinn

 ✩✩


1880s Wyoming Territory - As strong as the ranch she runs, widow Rachel Terhune has one dream—to fulfill the legacy she inherited from her father. Hiring Texas cowboy Nick Dusaq has nothing to do with the fierce pull between them and everything to do with saving her land.
The solitary cowboy newly arrived in Wyoming after bringing in a cattle drive, recognizes a kindred heart scarred by cruelty. He would ride away – he should ride away – if only her ranch didn’t need him so damned badly. Her ranch — not the widow woman like none he’s encountered before — is the only need he’ll let himself consider. Because he knows he's not a man entitled to any second chances of the heart.
Passion as powerful as the harsh beauty of the land around them bonds Rachel, the widow woman devoting every bit of her strength and courage to holding onto her Wyoming Territory ranch, and Nick, the loner cowhand with dreams of his own.
Yes, they have passion. But does it hold the promise of healing and love ... or the destruction of dreams?

The 2017 Reading Challenge - March 31st update

Last year I decided to accept Goodreads' reading challenge for the first time, and I failed. Not by much, but I still failed. So this year I decided not only to do it again but also to challenge myself even more. 

Last year I tried to read 100 books and ended up reading just 95. This year I want to read 110 books instead. 

The 2017 Reading Challenge - March 31st update

So, at the end of the first quarter of 2017, I decided to have a look and see how I'm doing. And, surprisingly, I'm one book ahead of schedule! Yay!

The 2017 Reading Challenge - March 31st update

Here's a sneak peek of all the books I've read so far (you can find the reviews for all of them searching by author at the bottom of the side bar).
