I loved this story so much, Thanos is a man who has closed his heart to love and Alice has been hurt by men and is not very trusting of men, but when Thanos wants to add to his company the only way he can do it is if he has a wife and his PA Alice Smart could be that woman.

Alice Smart works hard as a temp but struggles financially caring for her mother, when the boss she has been working for, for months finally arrives at his New York office and discovers that she is in need of money he makes an offer too good to refuse to be his pretend wife, but on their wedding night that ends very passionately Alice is losing her heart to the man that will become her hero.

Thanos Stathikas was hurt as a child and now lives the life of a playboy although wealthy there is one company that he wants very badly and although he has sworn of marriage this will be the only way he will get the company back but spending time with Alice will melt the wall around his heart, he has never felt like this with a woman before, can it be love?

This book is a sensual and moving story one that won my heart from the start I loved both Thanos and Alice two people meant to be together to see their passion build and their hearts open was just beautiful and the ending OMG it was amazing, and the setting Greece I love Greek heroes. I loved this one and can highly recommend this one, MS Connelly you rock another fabulous story.

Reviewed by Helen

This was a one sitting read, truly I did not want to put this one down, fabulously written a sensual story of falling in love and not wanting too, I have a special place in my heart for Greek heroes and Leonidas is strong but a little vulnerable and Hannah shows such strength and honesty as she wins him over.

Beautiful Hannah takes off when she finds her fiancé in bed with someone else, Hannah has felt a burden to people for a long time and now she is determined to find her way and although not looking for love when she arrives in Chrysa Vrachia love is going to find her when she bumps into the most handsome of men.

Leonidas Stathakis is rich and a loner after losing his wife and son fours earlier a shocking tragedy caused by his mobster father, Leonidas has sworn to be on his own from now on because of guilt, but when he literally runs into the beautiful innocent Australian Hannah and when one very passionate night leaves consequences his world is turned upside down.

I loved this story so much, MS Connelly is a gifted author who can bring her characters to life, I felt Leonidas’s pain and vulnerability and Hannah her empathy warmth and the love that flows from her, to see them opening up about the past and finding such happiness and joy had me smiling. It was such a wonderful journey for them both to the best HEA, I do highly recommend this one.

The Trouble with Christmas by Amy Andrews

This is a laugh out loud, fun and moving story, MS Andrews has such a way with words she pulls the reader in, brings the characters to life they become friends and this one is just so good, I loved Grady and Suzanne so very different but so meant to be together, being back in Credence was such a joy and I do hope that you pick this one up and get to know Grady and Suzanne.

Suzanne St. Michelle is an artist from New York, she is good at art but has lost her muse and when her friend invites her to Credence for Christmas, Suzanne is more than happy to go not only to see if she can find her muse but to have a real Christmas with all of the trimmings instead of the dull one she has always spent with her upper class Mum and Dad. Suzanne finds her muse, when she arrives, in her gorgeous landlord Joshua Grady, but when her parents insist on coming as well Suzanne convinces Joshua to play pretend boyfriend and to love Christmas, let the fun times begin.

Rancher Joshua Grady, is a loner and is not impressed that his uncle has rented the cottage on the ranch out to an artist, but the beautiful woman driving the Scooby van sets his blood on fire and when asked the question to be a fake boyfriend he thinks it best to agree so as he can get his quiet life back, Grady has issues about loving people, not realizing that his life will be turned upside down by the Christmas loving artist.

Falling in love was never on the cards for either of them but when cupid shoots those arrows and the intense spark that fires up between them during a blizzard and Joshy and Suzy start to open up and the sex is off the planet, it still takes them a while to say it out loud, how hard is it to say I love you, but seeing it in a painting brings them together beautifully, what an ending, what a HEA. This one sizzles with heat, emotions and fun and so much love, yes a must read woohoo another fabulous story form MS Andrews.

I am really enjoying this series and this one is a beautiful romance story of second chances and some suspense thrown in as well between Jaclyn Douglas and Ryan Rossiter, who arrive in Bindarra Creek unbeknownst to each other, to start new jobs can they start again where they left off in the city?

Jaclyn Douglas has taken the job of principal at the Bindarra Creek Central School, after a difficult situation in the city, she comes across as aloof but she is determined to get this school back to its best, but when she meets up with Ryan her ex her emotions are all over the place, trying to fit into the small community is not easy at first and with someone from her past causing problems Ryan just might be the one person that she can turn to.

Ryan Rossiter is a country boy at heart and after being in the city moving back to the country and buying a farm is just what he needs he is working for the Department of Education as a building contractor which means he is now going to have to work with Jaclyn the woman he never forgot, but he feels that she is worrying over something can he convince her to open up to him? Can he keep her safe?

I loved this fast paced story, that has everything a romance reader would enjoy, I loved Ryan what a caring loving helpful hero and Jaclyn is strong and caring but so vulnerable after what had happened to her in the city and journeying with them as they find love and happiness in this small community was a joy to read, thank you MS Seaton for a great story.

This is a beautiful story filled with emotion, romance and fun, the setting is just awesome and the characters that live in Elsie Creek are so good they are real people, people who become friends they make you laugh and shed a tear, this is the second book in this series and I loved getting to know Verily and Alex, I hope you join in the fun of their story that will leave you with a big smile.

Verily has returned to the town that she was born in, but not spent much time here, Elsie Creek in the Northern Territory, she has travelled the world playing softball and is a champion player, but a terrible accident changes all of that, she comes to stay with her Aunty Molly, not sure of what she is trying to find, never thinking that she will find love and such happiness when she meets Alex.

Alex is managing Molly’s mango farm while trying to become a brew master and create a special craft beer and driving big road trains for his father, he wants so much to follow his dream but is feeling pressured to follow in his father’s footsteps. When the gorgeous Verily arrives at the farm, there is big changes in the way he thinks, she is so good for him, they become fast friends and he falls head over heels for her.

This story is filled with witty banter that had me laughing out loud at times, but it also has the most beautiful romance as Verily and Alex open up and find their wings to do the things that they most want to do, seeing them come alive together had me turning the pages, MS Rowe this is a beautiful story that has all of the feels that a fabulous romance should have, this one has left me feeling very happy, I do hope that you will pick this one up and enjoy your trip to the Territory as I did the descriptions of the region, wildlife and plants are amazing, and I really want to visit Cecil and all of the friends I have made in Elsie Creek, thank you.

I have read a lot of MS Montgomery’s stories and really enjoyed them all, but I think this might be her best one yet, I loved this one from page one, this is a beautiful romance as Jenna falls in love with the mans she has loved forever Max, but an accident has taken her memory and the seduction from Max to win her back is just so beautiful, I do hope that you pick this one up.

Jenna Sinclair is just about to walk down the aisle but she is having major thoughts about doing this her mind has been struggling to remember after an accident nearly kills her and this just does not feel right, nothing seems as it should be least of all the horrible dress she is in. When in walks a gorgeous stranger and stops the wedding and although Jenna has no memory of this man there is something that is telling her she can trust him. She is swept away by this man and starts on the road to recovery in the most sensual way.

Max Bennett is a billionaire these days, he grew up as a worker on a horse stud run by Jenna’s family and growing he and Jenna became fast friends and that grew into love as they became teenagers, but family ripped them apart and they lost touch but he never forgot his Jenna and when they found each other and she has agreed to be his wife, Jenna is snatched away again. When he finds her this time nothing will stop him from showing his love and marrying the woman he loves and who will be the mother of his child.

This is a story that had me turning the pages not only is there such a gorgeous romance as Max does what he can to help Jenna get her memory back but there is danger around the corner for Jenna and Max is doing what he can to protect her. From the start Max and Jenna were meant to be together the love they share shines from the pages of this book, there is tension, so much emotion, this one had me racing to the end even though I wanted to spend more time with them, this is a story that I highly recommend, I loved it and am looking forward to nook 3. Thank you MS Montgomery for a fabulous story.
