Reviewed by Helen

Loved this story set in a small town in Montana "Big Sky Country" named Crater Lake and what a picturesque place this is the setting is perfect for our heroine Dr Esme Petersen to runaway to and hide or so she thinks, things change when she meets the local Dr Carson Ralston this is his hometown there has been a Dr Ralston in this town as far back as it was named and he is not too happy about someone arriving and wanting his patients.

MS Ruttan pulled me in from page 1 with this story it has everything that a lover of medical romance wants in their stories two people that so badly need something good to happen in their lives and a spark that neither can deny. Carson has been hurt before with love and is not too interested in trying it again but when there is one emergency after another and ex partners arrive on the scene and they finally open up to each other this brings them even closer. This storey is moving heart-warming and emotional there is drama and a very sensual journey to such a beautiful HEA.

This is part of a duo about two brothers and I am looking forward to Luke's story MS Ruttan never disappoints me with her stories they are a must read they will have you smiling throughout and I highly recommend this one. The setting is just wonderful and Montana is now on my bucket list. I recommend that you grab yourself a beverage of your choice sit back and enjoy.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story

Talos Claims His Virgin (Kalliakis Crown #1)


Fast paced , sexy, sexy, SEXY, and loaded with drama! This was the perfect book in every way you can think of!

Cutest heroine ever, and the most incredible hero, as in the kind that melts you , then enrages you then just brings you back down from your little anger in fulled rage. Did I mention he's a Prince!!

Michelle 's books are always perfect , she wraps everything I need to take away from a romance book up into a perfect bubble, adds the most delicious twits and then BOOM does something unexpected that makes me doubt my previous review of her books, that's right I always say her books are the best and I cannot fault them at all, and when the next one comes she does it even better than the last one hence the BOOM that blows me away!

It's hard to explain or rather put into words just exactly what she does because I have no idea what exactly it is but I do know that I highly recommend anyone and everyone to sit down and read any of this author's books . It a experience you will never forget, you will walk away with emotions you have never experienced from romance books( yes the normal love, happiness and heartache is there, but Michelle amps it up and I mean really amps it up!).

Trust me on this , read this , no read any book by this author and your life will be changed forever!!

Her Hometown Redemption by Rachel Brimble




Reviewed by Desere


A truly delightful read full of romance and beautiful happiness! This author is so brilliant she could write a dictionary and I would still walk away in awe! I loved the characters and the emotion oh my gosh the emotion was so electric and overwhelming that I had various emotions running through me and if I did not have the end of the book to get to I would have most likely gone nuts with not knowing what to do with the feelings.

It was a fun, flirty kind of read but with drama, and the very best kind of drama, you know the kind that leaves you drained but in a good way! Rachel Brimble is a diamond in the romance writing world, one that I truly know will never lose her sparkle!

Truly MS West knows how to take her readers on a magical journey to the glamourous world of the rich and beautiful in ballrooms and chateaus around the world and this story has taken us to Paris where vulnerable Imogen Holgate the ever cautious accountant has decided to live life to the fullest after first losing her twin sister and then her mother and with the fact that she is suffering the same symptoms as her mother is convinced her life is going to be a short one. So she takes herself on a trip of a life time around the world and the first stop Paris where her world is turned upside down in such a good way.

Thierry Girard adventurer turned businessman is looking forward to the day that he can hand the family business back over to managers to handle and get back to his climbing hot air ballooning and dare devil sports he does not believe in love after being burnt once already. Although he is very fond of woman things have been quiet on that front for a while way too busy with the business that is until he spots a beautiful woman across the other side of a ballroom and things start to warm up for Thierry as he is attracted to Imogen as he has not been for years to any woman and sets out to get to know her well.

The zing between Imogen and Thierry is so strong neither can deny each other and so a short affair that seems the best for both leads to passion and exhilaration as Imogen enjoys life and Thierry and Thierry enjoys Imogen and showing her so much fun in and out of the bedroom but when the time comes to an end there are consequences. Imogen does not expect that Thierry will marry her but he does but is it for the wrong reasons and as Imogen and Thierry get closer in some ways there is still a lot that needs to be said.

This is a beautiful story one that pulled me in from page one it is heart-warming so very sensual and emotional another winner from MS West another for the keeper shelf and one not to be missed I highly recommend this story especially for readers who love to fall in love. 

5/5 stars for a wonderful story

Issy has her plans for her future after a not so good childhood and having a fling with a hockey player is not on that plan but when her best friend Sapphie ends up with JB's team mate Mad Dog and Issy finds herself drawn to JB's personality she gives in and has that passionate holiday fling which leads to a pregnancy and a journey to such a beautiful HEA although their journey is a rocky one with lots of ups and downs it is one that will have you smiling cheering them on and yes wanting to scream at them as they work through their emotions and find true love.

This is such a beautiful story one that will pull you in from page one and keep you turning those pages I just about read it in one sitting I could hardly put it down this is about two people who have been through foster care and a traumatic childhood and to see them fall in love and do what they do for other people is wonderful.

Cori Evans is an art therapist and has been given the chance to help at the local hospitals children's department but when she meets her boss properly her impression isn't the best Dr Tom Riley seems stand offish but Cori is positive and works hard at what she is doing and does her best to change his mind.

Dr Tom Riley has just taken over as the temporary head of Paediatrics department he was good at what he did and was working hard to keep things running but having an art therapist come to work there for 8 weeks although good for the patients there are reasons behind questioning it.

Cori and Tom have an up and down journey to such a beautiful HEA there are fairies and beautiful paintings this story is a magical journey and one that I highly recommend it is emotional and heart-warming keep the tissues at the ready and of course you will be smiling as well don't miss this one.
