Olivia Worthington has a problem. A guy she barely knows has stolen precious jewels from the museum where she works, and it’s all her fault. Distrustful of the police, she seeks her ex-boyfriend’s help. When she draws him into a hornet’s nest of trouble, she wonders if he’ll walk away for good.

Computer geek and security expert Grady Long was just starting to get over Olivia when she shows up on his boat begging for help. How is he supposed to resist the woman who regularly walks through his dreams? But his weakness for her may cost him more than he has to give.

If there’s one thing that Olivia has learned in life, it’s that she will be rejected by any man she loves. Since childhood it has been the one constant for her. So when she falls in love with gorgeous, blue eyed security expert, Grady Long she knows she has to leave before he, too turns away from her. That was three months ago. Now Olivia has returned to ask Grady to help her get out of a dangerous mess that she doesn’t know how to handle alone.

Olivia’s job at the museum is jeopardized when priceless jewels are stolen because of her poor judgment. Rather than take a chance at losing her job by involving the police, she wants Grady to help her retrieve the stolen property so she can safely return it herself. What she doesn’t know is that their lives will both be risked by the venture. What she does know, is that she can’t keep her hands off of Grady. The scorching heat between them is mutual and soon the fire must be quenched.

Grady hasn’t been able to forget Olivia. When she shows up again, he sets out to find a way to keep her in his life for good. He doesn’t understand why she left him suddenly without giving a reason but knows that the passionate, lovely young woman has captured his heart. When he tries to convince her to explain why she left him, all she will say is that she’s no good at relationships and that she is sorry she hurt him.

I really liked the way Grady persistently led Olivia to open up and trust. Her deep seated fears and insecurities could have ruined her life if not for his love and faith in her. This story showed how the strength of a person’s love can break down emotional barriers. The romance in this story was sweet and passionate. It really inspired me to have hope for the couple to work through their obstacles.

The sex scenes in this tale were extremely well done and smoking hot. Ms. Daniels very effectively involves her reader in the erotic action. The story had some unfortunate editing errors, otherwise I would have rated it higher. However, I enjoyed this steaming, suspenseful romance with a charming and tender side to it and I am happy to recommend it.

Shy Cowboy Cass Drake is in love with his best friend, Tom Black, and content to keep it to himself until Tom is brutally attacked and Cass will do anything to protect him—even letting Tom mark him as his human mate.

Cowboy Cass Drake puts himself on a crash diet shortly after he meets Tom Black. Built like a linebacker, Cass has always been self conscious about his size and his shyness isn't helped by all the teasing he endures in the bunkhouse. But his quiet new friend Tom actually seems to be flirting with him. When Tom is attacked one night, it's Cass who comes to his rescue. Tom has a thing for his innocent cowboy but he also has secrets that could put Cass in danger.

When wolf shifters find their mates there is little they can do to avoid the inevitable. Tom Black is fighting tooth and claw to keep his attraction towards his shy friend at bay. But no man or wolf shifter can an avoid destiny forever.

I have to begin with saying that I just loved this pairing. It’s a complete role reversal. The wolf shifter is the smaller more submissive man and the human love interest is the large and in charge alpha in the relationship. I liked how this author mixed it up and took these characters is a different direction.

Tom has been working at the same ranch as Cass for a few months and his attraction towards the other man keeps him at a distance. He knows Cass isn’t experienced when it comes to relationships and sex. And Tom has his own fears of becoming mated to another person. He likes his easy pick up and go life style but he wasn’t counting on finding a suitable mate in Cass.

Poor Cass, the man is larger than life, literally. He’s tall and very muscular and his size has kept people at a distance all his life. Cass is lonely and is subtly trying to catch Tom’s attention. Cass lacks self confidence and his unsure way of going about things made him very likable.

These two men start to make a connection but it comes to a screeching halt when Tom gets assaulted by another wolf. I loved how Cass came to Tom’s rescue without fear for his own well being. It the midst of the conflict a love between Tom and Cass starts to bloom.

This is a short story but it doesn’t lack in the entertainment department. The love scenes were a gradual build that definitely steamed up the pages. Then there is the unknown wolf that is trying to kidnap Tom. This is an easy read that doesn’t leave the reader hanging on the edge for too long.

I’m a fan of Jan Irving’s Uncommon Cowboys series and Shy Cowboy left this reviewer satisfied. I would recommend this to all readers who have a love for shifters, cowboys, and happy ever afters.

When genteel poverty strikes Lady Charlotte’s family, the innocent virgin puts herself on the auction block at Madame Bella’s school for mistresses in a desperate bid to provide a Season for her younger sisters. For her plan to succeed, she must show auction winner, Lucas Morgan, what a valuable prize he’s won. Morgan may have only bid on her to thwart his hated twin brother, but she’s going to prove she’s worth every pound.

A mistress in high society is something frowned upon by the entire ton, but what if your mistress is really a high born woman trying to make a better life for her siblings? And once a mistress, can she rise from that title or will she never be allowed to darken certain doors again? What happens when her protector is someone that she falls in love with? Can he ever learn to love her or are she doomed to die of a broken heart?

Charlotte, a high bred women from the country, is willing to do whatever must be done to give her three younger sisters the chances that she never had, and by anything she means anything; even selling herself as a mistress and doing all that it takes to please the man who purchases her. What Charlotte doesn’t expect is for a man like Lucas Morgan to want her, especially at the high price he paid for her. She is willing to give everything she has to make him happy, but in giving herself away she may just get the heart of Mr. Morgan? Will Charlotte know what to do with his heart if he is willing to give it away?

Lucas, lost twin of the Earl of Westhunt, is on the prowl for a mistress. Specifically, one that his twin had once had his eye on. But the woman Lucas buys is nothing like what he is expecting. But will the hunt for his brother’s killer lead these two down a path that can’t be unwalked? And if Lucas falls for Charlotte, can she learn to love him or will he lose her to the next highest bidder?

This was a wonderful tale that showed the underbelly of high society, all the corrupt natures of the ton while still showing that love can survive even the worst of circumstances. Lucas and Charlotte’s story was wonderful because of the story line itself, not only the suspense but the unexpected blossoming of feelings that happens between the main characters.

As a reader, I would love for Ms. Silver to work this story into a series. The characters were so great to “meet” and interact with and I'd love to read more about Charlotte, Lucas and Charlotte’s three sisters. Author Lynne Silver spun a wonderful story and anyone who picks up this book will not be disappointed. She will definitely be on my list of authors to read in the future!

Werewolf Weylyn Randall is bi-sexual and happily carefree. He spends his nights fucking and playing bass in a band. His days are spent recuperating for another go-round when the sun goes down. Nothing gives Weylyn more pleasure than getting his “were” on. After years of this hedonistic lifestyle he doesn’t think there’s a mate out there for him. He’s happy having encounters with whomever strikes his fancy and hooking up with best friend and occasional lover, Drake Keating, whenever possible. Then Drake sends him a gift in a plain brown wrapper. Along with the gift comes a magical woman and between the two, they unleash the next phase in Weylyn’s wild sex life.

Weylyn’s new gift from Drake has him more than a little intrigued and when you add in a beautiful woman like Keir, Weylyn’s libido comes along for the ride. I enjoyed this quick and fast paced read. Weylyn is a great man. He loves everyone, man or woman, he has no preference. He enjoys them all and is ready to try almost anything. It seems that Weylyn may have met his match in Keir. She is more than ready to help him enjoy his new gift and the two seem made for each other.

The author has done a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. As quick as the read was I still felt like I got to know Weylyn and Keir. I loved getting to see how the two met and found each other. Watching the sparks turn into fireworks between Keir and Weylyn was a great read. As hot as this book is we still get a nice romance between the two characters. It is more than just a story about the two having sex, it shows us the beginning of their relationship and had me wondering just where it would go from here. This may not be long but it is still a wonderful story to be told. I cannot wait to see more from Weylyn and Keir and what they will be up to in the future.

These short stories about the characters in the Dark World are a nice look into their lives and I love getting finding out more about the inhabitants of this world.

Mary has trained for years to become the next Lamplighter of London. When her chance comes, however, she realizes the massive difference engines of the Lampworkers’ guild would be a cold substitute indeed for the passion she’s begun to explore with the current Lamplighter, Nicholas.

Though fate, it seems, is determined to separate them. A rival threatens to upset all Mary’s hopes and dreams within the guild, and with her newfound love.

Through intrigue and deception, bitter contention and scorching erotic discovery, Mary and Nicholas find new ways to get what they need as they create a future in which their love light shines.

I admit I was not much of a steampunk fan.. until I read this novella. What first drew me into The Lamplighter’s Love was the atmosphere. Ms. Dryden creates a beautiful, sensual world in this story. Mary is a sympathetic and accessible character and the story stays deeply in her point-of-view. She’s dedicated, hard working and prepared to devote her life to the Lamplighter’s way. Yet she finds herself capable of deep feeling and then she realizes life is not as simple as she had hoped it would be. She has done the unthinkable. She has fallen in love with the Lamplighter, Nicholas, who she is replacing. It’s easy to see why she fell so hard. Through her eyes we come to know Nicholas as intelligent, masculine yet sensitive and unbelievably sexy. These are fully fleshed characters who are easy to get to know.

The sex is white hot, beautifully and graphically portrayed. The heat, urgency and passion are fantastic. Yet there’s an undeniable romantic mood to the love scenes as well. It’s the perfect blending of sexual and emotional. This is erotic romance at its best.

The Lamplighter’s Guild provides a worthy and hard to conquer external force that threatens to keep Mary and Nicholas apart forever. The plot held me right on the edge of my seat wondering how they would ever find a way to be together and they surely did belong together. Ms. Dryden solves their issues and wraps things up in a way that is believable and satisfying.

This was my first story from Ms. Dryden and I will be looking into her other works. It took me to another place and time and by the end, I didn’t want to leave. Yet Ms. Dryden did all of that in sixty-six short pages. Even if you aren’t a fan of steampunk, if you enjoy emotional, sexy, lush stories about sensitive and intelligent characters, don’t deny yourself the pleasure of experiencing this exceptional short story.

Harry Blackwood has a rule never to sleep with a woman younger than thirty. But he’s also never been to a ball uninvited, stripped naked over tea in a quiet parlor, stepped inside a male bordello, been spanked by anyone other than his father, or become emotionally involved in another person’s life. And within a few hours, all that will change.

Christina Deveraux is nineteen, untamable as a hellcat and determined to enjoy Harry Blackwood’s abundant favors the moment he drops his trousers in her front parlor. As for his silly rules— she’s never met a rule she couldn’t break. After all, it is only sex, it’s her trade now she’s been left to manage her mother’s house of sin, and she has enough theory advice from a set of explicit diaries.

Now she wants to put text into practice. And Harry just happens to be the perfect study mate.

This is a story of opposites coming together to become something better than either was before on their own. What could be more romantic than that? I liked Harry and enjoyed being in his point-of-view. He comes across as sexy and smart with an edge of chivalry and protectiveness, at times touchingly bemused. He’s paired with the strong-minded, stubborn Christina. Harry is the son of a quirky man whose will requires Harry to return the paintings in the family private collection to the models who posed for them. If they don’t do this then the money will go to the housekeeper.

Though her mother was a courtesan who later ran a male bordello, Christina had been sheltered and educated to be a governess. When her mother dies, Christina finds herself in the position of needing to run the male bordello. She reads her mother’s diaries, quickly loses her naivety and sets about determinedly to run the male brothel on her own. However, one small catch keeps tripping her up. She needs sexual experience to know how to do well in this business.

That’s when Harry comes into the picture. There’s sexual tension aplenty between these two from the very start. Their sexual attraction pulls them together even as misgivings and their flaws pull them apart. Christina needs to learn to accept help from another person and Harry needs to learn how to be accessible and to give help. The sex has a teasing and playful aspect to it while being hot and sexily written.

Overall, it’s a pleasingly tense plot in which two seemingly different people find they have much to learn from the other.

If you like strong-minded heroines, cool-on-the-outside-yet-sweet-on-the-inside heroes and erotic romance with good character growth then I highly recommend this spicy tale. It should warm up a few autumn evenings.

Celeste Benning loses her phone—the lifeline that connects her to everything social. Luckily, she’s able to retrace her steps and find not just her phone, but a hot bartender who leaves her head spinning and a mystery man who sends her sexy text messages that leave her phone smoking.

When a gorgeous woman comes into his bar looking for her phone, Grant is only too happy to save the day…and ask her to go out with him the next night. Then he impulsively sends her some anonymous text messages designed to tease and titillate, realizing only too late that he’s just become his own romantic competition.

While Celeste wonders how to choose between the sexy, exciting mystery man and lovable, gorgeous Grant, Grant wonders how Celeste will react when she realizes both men are the same person…and how he can convince her to stay with him forever.

A lost cell phone, being cut off from everyone and everything that you have grown attached to having at your fingertips would be devastating. But how would you feel if you started getting randy text messages from a random number? Would you respond? The hotter the messages the more you want to know this person because they seem to know everything about you, but who could it be? Can they live up to the messages once you meet?

Grant is used to finding all sorts of things in his bar after closing each night. But when a gorgeous woman walks in begging to know if he has seen her cell phone he is drawn to her in ways he didn’t think were possible at a first meeting. When he started texting her, he didn’t realize that things would get so out of hand, but now he is his own competition. Can Celeste forgive him, or has he gone too far to get the girl this time?

This book was something that I would definitely have picked up at the local bookstore, even without knowing anything about it but the blurb on the back. The idea of a mystery man sending sexy texts and being wooed by a gorgeous bartender all at the same time would be almost too much for a girl to handle. While reading this tale, I thought the characters were very believable, and the story felt like it flowed extremely well – especially for a short story. Not once did the story seem rushed or unrealistic, but it felt like a story someone would tell you of how they met the person of their dreams.

Usually I don’t expect to finish a book in one sitting (it would be nice, but life tends to get in the way of that happening) but with this book, I just couldn’t put it down. The plot pulled me in, drew me to the characters and their situation. I became a mad page turner to see how they finally found their HEA. This was a wonderful book that really pulled me into the story and made reading it a pleasure. This one will definitely go into my re-read pile. Remy Richards is someone to watch out for. This book didn’t disappoint at all, left me wanting more, and waiting anxiously for the next book she writes. If you’re on the fence about buying this book, get off the fence and buy it! You won’t regret the purchase at all!

A year after losing her beloved husband, Grace Wizler learns he left a special surprise for her. A fabulous getaway in the beautiful Canadian Rockies that includes a date with a mystery man arranged through Madame Eve's 1NightStand dating service. She's shocked and intrigued...what was Ben thinking?

Grace's date is charming, handsome and about to find out whether the woman of his dreams will return his affection. He's waited forever, but he's ready to risk it all on a 1NightStand.

Grace is a forty two year old widow. Before he died, her husband, Ben arranged for her to have a 1 Night Stand.

This was a wonderful story and although I’ve enjoyed others in this series, I have to say this is my favorite so far. I was immediately drawn to Grace who is going through a bad time one year after her husband’s death. She has some very supportive people in her life including her brother and a neighbor named Jake who, like Grace, is immediately likeable.

It’s difficult to explain why I enjoyed this story without giving away the plot but let me just say that Ben set up Grace’s 1 Night Stand in the beautiful Canadian Rockies and it gives you a feel how much love the two of them shared. The author did a great job describing the scenery and accommodations in this story. Grace hikes to a secluded cabin, and it’s there she gets to meet her date. I had a feeling who it would be and was happy I was right. I think you will be too when you read this story. It contains a few letters from Ben to Grace which will pull on your heartstrings and added a lovely touch.

Ms. Burke did a wonderful job creating this moving story in such a short read and I highly recommend The One He Chose to you, especially if you’re new to this series.

The virgin isn’t the only one with something to lose...

Sequel to The Distance Between Us

Self-described manwhore Kieran Frost is loving the single life. Two years after moving to Seattle, he still has his friends with benefits, Rhett and Ethan, plus a never-ending supply of gorgeous, available men wandering through the bar where he works. A relationship? Spare him the drama and heartbreak. He’s got no complaints about his unattached lifestyle.

When Rhett’s daughter introduces him to newly-out-of-the-closet Alex Corbin, Kieran’s interest perks up. After all, the quiet ones are always the freaks in bed. But Alex isn’t just shy and reserved. He’s a virgin in every sense of the word, having never even kissed anyone else.

Kieran is no one’s teacher, and his first instinct is to run like hell in the other direction. But his conscience won’t let him throw the naïve kid to the wolves for someone else to take advantage of. The plan is to introduce Alex to his own sexuality, pull him out of his shell, then go their separate ways.

It’s the perfect, foolproof plan…assuming no one falls in love.

The basis of this story is a common theme; boy meets boy, boy falls in love unexpectedly, and boy deals with his fear of commitment. Kieran Frost is a self-proclaimed bachelor who is convinced relationships and love don’t last forever. Kieran is a very likeable guy, he knows what he wants and doesn’t want out of life, and doesn’t hurt others in the process of living his free loving life style. But when face to face with a virgin seeking guidance into the gay life style, all he ever thought gets turned upside down. To read as Kieran slowly opens up to sweet and gentle Alex, I found myself falling in love with him to. The loving and respectful way he treated Alex in taking him step by step on what to watch out for in regards to meeting other gay men and helping build Alex’s self-confidence.

I like how Alex was written with the naiveté of what a male/male relationship was like. His innocence helped make this budding relationship more believable when it came to his acceptance of the parameters of the relationship. He’s twenty-one and still a virgin--who better than an experienced older man to help rid him of his virgin status and teach him the ropes along the way? So of course he would agree to whatever Kieran wanted to keep him in his life.

The best part about this story was all the dialogue between the characters. Definitely gave that extra zing to help carry this story along. I got to know more about the characters' personalitys from their conversations with one another and it made these fictional characters come to life.

This was a very entertaining book to read. Pairing up a virgin with an overly experienced partner is a love story just waiting to happen. The love scenes between Kieran and Alex were taken slow at first but towards the end they down right steamed up the pages. A captivating read from beginning to end. I would completely recommend The Closer You Get to any readers who like their stories filled with doubt, hard-headed men, and the hope that love conquers all in the end.

Cade O’Donnell is a virgin…of sorts. Wanting something he’s never had before, he signs up for the 1NightStand service. Deciding to meet his match in Vegas seems the right setting for his tryst. What better place to have a fling than in Sin City.

Thrills are abundant when Penny and Cade get together. But will it be more than she bargained for? Has Cade bitten off more than he can chew?

Penny has signed up for one of Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stands and heads to Las Vegas where she is paired with Cade.

This is the fourth 1 Night Stand book I’ve read and have to say there’s not one that hasn’t held my interest and this one was no exception. It begins like most of the others but when Cade comes on the scene the author does a wonderful job giving you a sense that there’s something different about him. I loved the way he showed Penny some of the sights of Vegas before they went back to the hotel room. It’s a story full of sexual tension because although there is some interaction between Penny and Cade before they hit the town, the fact that it was pages before they had sex did keep me on the edge of my sit wondering would they, or wouldn’t they or was Cade just there for company?

I hope I won’t spoil this when I say it’s a paranormal and no, I won’t tell you exactly where the paranormal element comes into play but it did put a unique twist on this story and the series as a whole.

The pacing is fast, dialogue natural sounding, and the story is filled with enjoyable characters. If you’re looking for a quick, sexy paranormal, this is a good one to pick.

In the deep of night she longs for him. Mate, lycan, lover. Her lawman. As Katalin Petrova struggles to control her wild and untamed “gift”, she yearns for the only man who can make her whole. His every touch burns, searing her with unimaginable pleasure. Only her strong, protective lover can tame the wild yearnings of her body and help her claim the power of her ancestors.

While Gabriel Dunham, lycan lieutenant of the Wolf Creek Pack, watches over his intended mate, his patience to claim her nears an end as savage need burns his body. Consumed by unbridled lust, he claims her, takes her, hoping it will be enough to protect Katalin from unseen forces determined to rip her from his arms.

More than 200 years old and standing over six feet seven inches tall, lawman Gabriel Dunham, a lycan lieutenant of the Wolf Creek Pack, has finally found his one and only mate, Katalin Petrova. He discovers her in a rescue attempt to save her and her kidnapped sister Sara who were about to be forced to consummate with vicious outlaw werewolves. Among their kind, a forced consummation is punishable by death.

Katalin, who is healing from the painful ordeal, has just taken a job at the library at Cloverfield High School. She blames herself for the traumatic events that occurred in her life recently when her sadistic father murdered her protective mother to sell Katalin and her sister to outlaws when he witnesses the girls' special powers. With healing time, she grows to desire her true mate Gabriel and her telekinesis grows to the extreme, as Gabriel spends time helping her develop and control her gift, despite her doctor's reservations.

A surprise enemy soon reveals their identity by kidnapping Katalin again for the same purpose, but this time Katalin is no weakling and this time Gabriel will move the world to save her.

Regina Carlysle continues to amaze me with her imaginative tales and entertaining reads. I was so enthralled with this book that I had to go out and get the rest of the series.

I loved the book's characters. We have the hunky, tall, dark and handsome hero who is strong, protective, sweet and hot all rolled up into one sexy specimen. I fell in love with Gabriel from the beginning of the story when he stated that he would rather die than hurt his beloved mate. Only in fantasies could I dream of being that mate. *sigh*

And then we have the perfect heroine. Scarred from life's viscious attacks, she comes back not only “kicking-ass” but showing her man that she is his one true love.

The secondary characters were so great that I could not wait to read about their lives and love interest also. I was even a little surprised as to the identity of the villain. Most of the time I see the ending long before it comes in a book, but this one took me awhile to come to that conclusion. This story flowed effortlessly and I will definitely be keeping this in my favorite book list.

What is not to love about a “dream-man” who has but one true mate in his life? If you are seeking a story with drama, intrigue and extremely hot, love-scenes, this story may be for you.
