A fabulous second installment in this series, MS Delaney has done it again kept me guessing till the end, lots of twists and turns, there is also lots of smiles along the way as Rosie works out the mystery of murder and missing money and missing people.

After the danger and mayhem when Rosie first came to the small town of Airlie Falls Texas, she thought that life was good, her and boyfriend Jonah are happy, her friend Midge is running the newspaper and living at Rosie’s place, but things are about to be turned around when the people that she has come to love are threatened when someone arrives in town and wants to be the new mayor, and there seems to be a few more strangers in town than normal, and a luxury commune does not seem to be what it is meant to be, Rosie’s mind is ticking over.

When a stranger is found dead and then another murder happens and this man’s wife is missing Rosie is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery especially when Midge is accused of one of the murders, after all Rosie knows what that is like and goes all out to find the truth and protect her best friends.

This is another page turner in this series, so well written, engaging with wonderful characters it was like going home with Fiona and Clay, Jonah, Merline, Brenda and the fab four and I was cheering Rosie on especially with the sheriff, there are lots of smiles as he tries to tell her to stop prying but is underneath very happy with her help. There is danger coming at her and Jonah and finally the mystery is solved, I loved it and highly recommend this one, it is fabulous story.

MS Connelly has written a story filled with strong emotions, a story of revenge and love, a family feud that started many years ago and now maybe, just maybe if love can prevail then Antonio Herrera and Amalie DiSalvo can move forward and join these families with their love.

Amalie is living in a small English village she is a teacher and loving her life, it is far removed from the life she grew up in she got away from the limelight the wealth the power but is she about to be pulled back into all of this when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, a stranger that she cannot stop being pulled to the spark is electrical and after finding out his name Antonio, a night of passion is thoroughly enjoyed. But what he asks of her afterwards caused her to throw him out, but there will be consequences of this night.

Antonio has been after revenge for many years and finally he has found out where Amalie is living and cannot believe that an heiress is living in a little country cottage, but he needs her to sign over the shares to the company Prim’Aqua so he can finally destroy her family, but he cannot believe the attraction he feels on meeting her and when she spends a passionate night with him and throws him out, he cannot forget her.

I loved this story Amelia and Antonio are both shocked that they are going to be parents, but Antonio still wants revenge and Amelia does everything she can to help him see that revenge is not what he wants, she shows him that love is best and when he realizes that he made me smile. This is a story that I highly recommend strong fabulous hero and heroine that are bought to life on the pages, thank you MS Connelly for another keeper

This is an emotional moving story, really there is a lot of heart-felt feelings running through this one, ups and downs, pain and hurt but from these emotions springs love, a deep love, but it takes time for Allie and Darcy to get there, they have a lot to overcome first, I thoroughly enjoyed this one, I hope you will pick this one up and enjoy it as I did.

Allie is a domestic flight attendant, she is quiet and comes across reserved, she lost her parents when she was just ten years old and has been bought up by her loving grandparents, her grandmother is not well at the moment and Allie spends a lot of time with her and Pops but she meets a lot of people on her flights and one of them is Darcy Rayne top football player for The Adelaide Thunder team, Footy or any sport for that matter is not Allie’s cup of tea but for some reason she is drawn to the man Darcy and cannot deny the pull that he causes.

Darcy Rayne is a player on and off the field, but he wants nothing more than being the best in football and aiming for a grand final is what he is after, but he has met the beautiful flight attendant on a couple of flights now and he feels connected to her for some reason, and he decides that he needs to be with her, although it is not easy he has been hurt before, but the pull is so hard to let go off and the sensual and emotional connection grows.

Did an old phone number and fate bring Allie and Darcy together? What is this connection that will not go away, the need they have for each is spiraling with emotion and a very sensual attraction. I have to say I really did enjoy this book even though there were times that I struggled with Allie and then I was cheering her on and Darcy yes again I could have pushed him and then cheered for him as well and yes there were tears and sighs and smiles, wow you got me invested in this one MS Bow, you pulled at my emotions and had me turning the pages, yes this is one that I highly recommend.

This is a fun, entertaining and sensual story that brings together Melody Bryant and Adam Foster, the bad boy in town and also Mel’s brothers best friend. Mel is determined to learn how to have fun, flirt and be different from the typical librarian, but to do that she needs some help with a makeover and with Adam back in town he is the perfect person, if he will help.

Melody is fast approaching twenty five and there are a few things that she has not done yet and the guy she has had a crush on forever is back in town and Mel wants him badly and will do just about anything to seduce the bad boy, but getting him to help is not easy but when she does the sparks fly and her feelings are put to the test.

Adam is sure this is a bad idea to help Mel find the man of her dreams and protect her at the same time, but he is having a hard time keeping his emotions intact, he is convinced that he is not the right person for Mel, he comes from the wrong side of town and besides Mel’s family is like a family to him can he cross that line to love and still be friends with her brother.

Mel and Adam were made for each other if only Adam can get over his bad boy reputation and as for the librarian who with a makeover becomes more confident and witty, this is a great story I smiled and cheered them both on the sensual pull heats up pulling them closer together, this is a story that I highly recommend MS Douglass knows how to bring her characters to life, I do look forward to the next one is the series.

I do love a good cowboy story and this one was really good, a cowboy with pride and love to give and a heroine who is strong and determined to lead a happy life away from her loving but controlling parents. I loved getting to know Jethro and Sadie two people from totally different backgrounds that meddled and fell in love, make yourself comfortable for this fabulous story.

Jethro Hansen has led a life that certainly has had ups and downs and now he is doing his best to make the ranch that was left to him and his two brothers by their grandfather improve and make a living for them all. To do that his grandfather has requested the help of the local lawyer Layla, who is off on maternity leave and her friend Sadie has stepped in and there is a pull between her and Jethro that is sizzling.

Sadie has a life plan to become partner in a big firm in Denver she is an only child and has a lot of expectations, but when she goes to the town of Marietta to help a friend, she never expects that she will fall for her client Jethro the cowboy who is not only gorgeous on the outside but on the inside as well and that all of her life plans will change for the better.

This is such a feel good, easy read, fabulous characters that were very easy to love, a sensual journey to a HEA that had me turning the pages and woohoo the first in a series so I am looking forward to more in this series and getting to know Nate and Crease. I f you love a good romance and a great cowboy hero with a strong heroine, then this is one I highly recommend.

Fleur grew up on the island but after an incident that happened when she was young, at the age of fifteen she fled for her dancing career, but after a terrible accident she is home at the hospital recuperating, and here she meets the new doctor Rick Fleming who pushes her like no other to get well but he also pushes her sensual buttons there is a connection that cannot be denied.

This really is a beautifully written story, a story that flows with love and happiness but crosses hurdles that need to be bought out in the open. I loved Rick and Fleur and the determination and encouragement that was shared between them and Ellie is a delight to get to know.

I enjoyed this story very much, and easy read about two people with military backgrounds, Isabella has been hurt before and is very wary about getting involved with another man in the military, but Ethan is a caring hero, one who anyone would find it hard not to fall for.

Isabelle Knowles has a military father and mother who ran from that life when she was a young teenager, but military life was what she wanted and at the age of eighteen she married her soldier her school sweetheart only to lose him and so getting involved with military men is a no go, but then a blind date organized by her father starts a new journey that she struggles with.

Ethan Masters grew up in military family as well, so going into the military is what he wants air force K-9 for Ethan and he is a gentleman and caring man, when his friend sets him up on a blind date, he is stunned at the beautiful lady that is there to meet him, but their first date does not work out well, nor their second, he is finding it hard to get her to open up, but when he does the pull between them grows as well.

Isabella has a lot of thinking to do and feelings to get over before she can finally commit to love and Ethan, she is a strong heroine and does not like to be pushed around, but Ethan is one of the most caring heroes I have met and although their journey to a HEA is a very up and down battle, there is no denying the sensual pull between them, I do recommend this one to readers of military romance.
