Neither of them can deny this spark and both agree to a short affair with a definite finish date but they fuse together so well not only in the bedroom but outside as well but Juliet is so determined that she will be able to leave in two months but Ryder is not so convinced that they should separate, their journey does have a lot of sexy fabulous moments and Tiny definitely adds to the mix.

Valdez's Bartered Bride by Rachael Thomas

Reviewed By Helen

I really enjoy MS Thomas’s stories and this one is fabulous, two passionate people, a thin line between love and hate and two fathers that set them on a journey that could go either way, sit back and get to know Spanish Magnate Raul Valdez and Genealogist Lydia Carte-Wilson as they try to fight the instant attraction that could light up a city.

Lydia has not had a very happy childhood unloved by her mother and father and now she has been thrown into a position that is in all likely hood about to turn her world upside down when she is summoned to meet up with Raul Valdez regarding his father’s will they have not seen each other since she was a young teenager and that did not end happily. So now she is being asked to help Raul gain his inheritance and her father has a big part to play in it as well and it could mean getting married on Christmas Eve or being ruined.

Raul is furious with his late father he never wants to marry or fall in love, falling in love to him is a sign of weakness but there are debts to be paid off and he needs to get it done so as the people who work for the company will still have jobs there is a lot riding on Lydia and her answer, Oh but the sparks fly and it is not too long before they are having an affair a sensual one at that.

This story sizzles with a huge sensual spark that both Lydia and Raul try very hard to curb they really have been thrown in the deep end by their fathers but surprisingly soon learn a lot about each other considering how neither one wanted to be near each other in the first place, both normally keep to themselves but open up to each other in more ways than one. I did love this story it is fast paced and a fantastic journey to a very delightful HEA. I look forward to the next one in this series.

MS West is an auto buy author for me her stories are magical journeys to the most gorgeous countries and of course her heroes are to die for and so very loving and her heroines strong and loving and for me I have a real soft spot for a Greek hero and well Lambis is so very vulnerable so afraid to love until Princess Amelie walks into his life again.

Princess Amelie is hurting for the loss of her brother and his wife but more so for their young son Sebastien who has taken himself off into a shell and he needs to be bought out of that shell, so Amelie takes him away from their little country of St Galla and the media to the man that she hopes will be able to help him to the man that walked away from her before and left her broken hearted to his island in Greece remote and risky for Amelie, can she keep her feelings and emotions inside while they get little Seb back to his normal self?

Lambis has purposely ignored all communication from Amelie after the funerals you see he has such strong feelings for her but is unable to love again or protect like he should, these days he works hard and keeps to himself, so when Amelie and Seb arrive on is island in the cold and snow what else can he do but offer his help and pray that the desire will stay within.

This is such a beautiful story a story of love, caring and emotions from two very vulnerable people, people that deserve love and happiness and with the sparks flying between them as they get closer by helping Seb they cannot help but fall into an affair a short affair according to them both. This journey is a moving emotional and very sensual one, I loved Lambis and Amelie and as for Seb what a fabulous little boy who will be King, yes I shed some tears but was left sighing and smiling, thank you MS West for another story that will stay with me for a long time an awesome finish to this series.

Give Murder A Hand by Beth Prentice

Reviewed by Helen

WOW am I loving this series Lizzie is one fabulous heroine who just seems to have murder, mayhem and one problem after another following her since she bought this house, of course she did meet the love of her life after hiring handyman Riley to help her get the house renovated. This time bones are dug up in the back yard and the chaos and havoc start over again, do yourself a favour and read the first book in the series Dangerous Deeds and then this one although they can be read as stand alones I highly recommend them both.

Yes Lizzie still has a way of getting herself into trouble and this time Riley insists on her having counselling for the nightmares from the last incident and when she makes an appointment it ends up being Riley’s ex-girlfriend Allison, Lizzie feels very uncomfortable with her from the start and when dreadful things happen and Allison seems to be around at the time Lizzie and her family are getting suspicious as is Police Sargent Ed who seems to come to the rescue when needed.

Riley and Lizzie are starting to argue over Allison and of course there is Policeman Ed to contend with as well not to mention Grandma Mabel’s new boyfriend George with the skin problems and with Lizzie’s family adding their two cents worth and Riley’s family so nice to Allison, this adds up to a story that is just riveting I couldn’t put it down truly I laughed but it also has the heart beating as Lizzie has quite a few near misses in life.

Oh but Riley is the best hero he does love Lizzie as Lizzie loves him and together they are a team, a team that win in life and love, I loved this story from start to finish very clever, witty, fun well written engaging and I highly recommend it, way to go MS Prentice another keeper.

This is a laugh out loud action packed fast paced story that will keep readers engaged and on the edge of your seat as you keep turning the pages.

Lizzie has just purchased a house, it is old and run down and yes needs a lot of work but she is determined to get it done. She has decided to work from home and needs the attic fixed up first as that is going to be her office when she starts. Lizzie realizes that she is going to need help so she hires handyman Riley who happens to be gorgeous but Lizzie already has a boyfriend but she can look or drool.

Riley jumps in and starts work straight away and he finds Lizzie fun and cute and easy to talk to. He is single, works hard and comes from a great family. He is ever the gentleman and cannot do enough for Lizzie and finds that there is a pull towards this fun loving woman.

Things start to happen when pulling up floor boards as an engagement ring and very old letters are found that had belonged to the previous owner of the house, Avis, who has passed away and Lizzie and Riley are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery but they did not count on stalkers and break-ins and danger around a lot of corners, this ring holds a lot of secrets and there are people who will go to any lengths to stop them from being revealed.

This is the first book by MS Prentice that I have read but it won’t be the last. She has bought to life a cast of endearing characters that had me laughing and there are those nasty ones that are out to cause trouble and of course the journey for Lizzie and Riley has so many ups and downs in it. I loved Lizzie the girl who comes first in class with foot in mouth disease that will have you cracking up with laughter and Grandma Mabel is just the best. Lizzie’s family will keep the laughs and love coming as well. I do highly recommend this story.

This is a great romance with suspense a story that shows how too very different people can come together when there is a bit of danger lurking, famous mystery author Ethan James is a bit of a recluse he is a single dad to Daisy and a bit over protective of the people he loves then there is nurse Leah Dixon who goes out of her way to care for as many people as she can one positive one negative but their attraction cannot be denied for too long as they work together to help Ethan’s ex-wife and Daisy’s mother.

Leah is forever the carer and that is why nursing is so important to her after losing her grandmother when she was young she vowed to care for people and her career comes first, but on a cold night walking home from work she finds a child on the beach and when she returns her to her father writer Ethan James her life is about to be turned upside down and maybe it is time that Leah though of her personal life.

Ethan has moved to Templeton Cove so as he can keep his daughter safe and keep his career going as a famous writer he is essentially a loner and after his wife walked out on him and Daisy years before he is even more protective of Daisy but when his ex-wife Anna arrives back in their lives with big problems following, nurse Leah steps in and turns his emotions inside out.

This story has a lot happening in it a romance between Leah and Ethan is not a smooth journey there is a lot to overcome for both of them and of course there is Daisy to think of and with threats and bad guys getting involved emotions run high. I really did enjoy this one it is the first time I have read one of MS Brimble’s stories but it won’t be the last I do highly recommend this one to anyone who loves a good romance with a great suspense thrown in the characters are engaging and I loved getting to know them.

And took off to give the parents a piece of her mind.

Book 1: ‘Pursued by the Desert Prince’.
Book 2: ‘His Mistress with Two Secrets’.

Isidora Garcia has hidden her broken heart from everyone around her and yes, even from Ramon Sauveterre. Though Ramon thought he did her a favor by breaking her youthful crush on him by breaking her heart.

But now Ramon needed her to agree to a charade. To pretend she was his fiancée. She did agree but could she protect her heart from breaking again?

With their passions riding high and scorching chemistry between them, they ultimately gave in. But what would happen now? After all Ramon didn’t do marriage and family—with good reason.

Could Izzy gather her shattered heart once again and survive?

BOUND BY THE MILLIONAIRE’S RING is a scorching hot and highly sensual romance. A reader would be hooked to the pages till the end. Author Dani Collins brought two such characters in this book that you will laugh and shed tears for them. Izzy, though a strong heroine, has a soft spot for the family and would do anything for them. The reason behind this would move you to fight tears. Ramon, though spoiled and arrogant, is still a sensitive hero and would make a place in your hearts.
