If you love a story that will burn up the pages with a sizzling sensual affair between a handsome Italian banker Vittorio Donatelli and gorgeous staff member Gwyn Ellis then this is the book for you sit back and enjoy and you will not want to be disturbed.

Gwyn Ellis has landed herself a promotion from her job in the Donatelli bank in Charlestown USA to Milan Italy head office and she loves her job and has a slight crush on the second in charge, she works hard but still wonders why she was given this promotion and is starting to find a few irregularities with one of the charity accounts she looks after. So when she is called before the employment relations department things start to go downhill for her and then in walks Vittorio Donatelli 2nd in charge asking questions and taking charge, Gwyn's life as she has know it is just about to change forever.

Vitto is honourable and loyal and loving to his family and the family bank but he has a dark secret that must be kept no matter what and being single and playing the field suits him fine but when a major scandal is just about to break that could cause problems for the bank Vitto steps in and the woman that sends sparks through his system is very much involved so it will be up to him to prove she has been framed and get her to help with the investigations and keep scandal to a minimum but the only way to do that according to Vitto is for Gwyn to become his mistress.

WOW what a story this one is I flew through the pages as Gwyn and Vitto journey to such a beautiful HEA this one is steamy and sensual it is also moving and emotional as the strong and determined Gwyn can still be strong even with everything she has been through the caring side of Vitto that shows through this alpha male with have you sighing as they fall in love. I can highly recommend this one it is a fast paced and thoroughly enjoyable read. MS Collins does know how to write a story that you will not want to put down.

5/5 stars for a wonderful story

Wedding Date With The Army Doc (Harlequin Medical Romance) by Lynne Marshall

Reviewed by Helen

This is such a good story moving and emotional as MS Marshall Takes on a subject that can be controversial and she has done this so well truly this is a story that had me turning the pages.

We meet Pathologist Charlotte Johnson she is very pretty she is a caring and hard working person she is also single and aims to stay that way after her fiancĂ© walked out on her after she had an operation that she had thought a lot about and decided that it was the best thing to save her life but it is also a major life changing operation but Charlotte is positive, you see she lost her Mum when she was young to breast cancer and that pushed her into the job that she loves and her decision. But when she meets Dr Jackson Hilstead Charlotte’s life is about to change and in such a beautiful way.

Dr Jackson Hilstead has moved to California left everything behind in Charlestown to start a new life divorced and getting over PTSD after being badly injured in Afghanistan Jackson has a prosthesis and the couple of woman he has gotten close to since moving shy away and with two sons already children and marriage is not what he wants but he is drawn to the beautiful pathologist Charlotte this could be what he needs to bring out the best in him again and make him happy.

This really is a must read story it is beautifully written the caring and loving Charlotte and Jackson are so drawn to each other but with scares from their past it takes a bit of time for them to take the plunge to find true love. Charlotte’s decision to have the surgery is handled so well I shed some tears but was smiling throughout this one, the scenery is fabulous as well. I highly recommend this story I loved it. It is part of a small series Sumer Brides but can be read as a standalone but I am looking forward to the other one in this series.

Another fabulous story by MS West this one a Beauty and The Beast story with the hero being the beauty Italian Raffaele Petri pulled himself of the streets of Italy and out of poverty with his looks and he does not speak of his past but when he becomes a model and then moves on and makes a name for himself then in business he is a quiet man but he never stops looking for someone and revenge is what he wants for a wrong that was done years before.

Lily Nolan was badly scared when she was young and keeps to herself she is a researcher and very good at what she does but when one of her clients rings her during the night and practically demands that she pack up in Australia and comes to New York to work exclusively for him she is stunned but in the end decides to do this it is hard for Lily to travel that far and be in contact with people but she is strong and when she meets Raffaele he does not shy away like most people do and there is a spark that shoots between them will this be the change that the innocent Lily needs to get on with her life?

This is one emotional moving and very sensual story one that I found very hard to put down both Raffa and Lily have a lot in their past that they need to come to terms with and Lily shows such strength when she stands up to Raffa and her first kiss will have you sighing it was so lovely. Of course their journey to a HEA is filled with ups and downs denials and realizations. This is a story that you keep you turning the pages it has everything that a romance needs to keep you smiling I loved this one and can highly recommend it, it was a joy to read pulling at my heartstrings with emotion and love thank you MS West for another must read.

I am loving this series and this one is a beauty how do you tame one of Hollywood's top stars especially since you have known him forever and there is a secret that is very embarrassing to say the least between you but when Liam Carter needs help with a badly sprained ankle he also needs the help of his best friend's sister Grace Watson who is a physical therapist at The Hollywood Hills Clinic. Get ready for a fabulous rocky road to the ultimate HEA.

Grace works hard at her job in the clinic that has some of the top Hollywood actors as patients and the last time she saw Liam Carter was a long time ago and in a very embarrassing situation a lot has happened to Grace since then but she has never forgotten Liam and now here he is needing help that will put them together closely for a few days will this open up her feelings that she has kept under control for so long how is the strong Grace going to cope?

Liam Carter has worked hard to get to where he is today after the life he had growing up it has left him a little scared and so sure he is not the picket fence kind of guy no marriage or relationships for Liam hard work and fun. But when he meets up with Grace again the feelings and emotions he thought buried have come to the surface she pulled at his heart years ago and it seems she still can with her caring and kind ways can she get him to see the truth?

I highly recommend this one it is sensual moving and was a joy to read it had me turning the pages and smiling as the banter between them is so good they have a lot to open up about including that trench coat I won't say anymore other than to say this is a must read.

I do love a good mini series and this is book one in The Billionaire's Legacy and it starts with an emotional sensual all round fabulous story this one is going to keep you turning the pages.

Matteo Di Sione is the youngest of the Di Sione children who were bought up by their grandfather Giovanni after the tragic deaths of their parents Matteo was only five years old at the time and was pretty much left to fend for himself never understanding why so he has grown into a strong independent wealthy business man who is determined to stay single he leads a wild and sometimes dangerous life but he does care. When Matteo is summoned to his grandfather's residence the news is not good and Giovanni asks Matteo to reclaim something that means a lot to him one of his "Lost Mistresses" this brings Matteo in contact with the beautiful and defiant Abby Ellison and this will change Matteo's life in such a good way.

Abby Ellison is a thorn in her father's side instead of being the lady of fashion she is an engineer and runs a car racing team one that is struggling badly she lost her mother when she was young and her older sister is the apple of her hard father's eye but Abby is out spoken and determined to live her life the way she wants and although very innocent things have happened to Abby to help make her this way her father has offered to help the team on one condition and Abby is not giving in to him although when she meets Matteo things are going to change.

There is such a spark when Matteo and Abby meet but there is also so much in their way to see straight away what they mean to each other. This really is a face paced sensual sizzling emotional beautiful story that will pull at your heart strings it will bring you to tears but also have you smiling the banter between Matteo and Abby is fabulous.

A PREGNANCY SCANDAL by Kat Cantrell

Reviewed by: Amanda

A Pregnancy Scandal, second book in the Love & Lipstick series by Kat Cantrell is a sexy, angsty and well written story! I anticipated this book after reading the first novel in the series debut and I must say I am not disappointed at all. Ms. Cantrell layered her story so well that the settings, back stories, dialogues and vivid prose created a dazzling, edgy concoction. More so, her characters were flawed, flashy and uptight in a likable way. And as the title suggests, the unplanned pregnancy added extra drama to an already dramatic plot. I enjoyed reading this book due to the fact that Ms. Cantrell gives her characters enough room to grow and evolve. Phillip garnered my vote when he grows to accept and love Alexandra. I rooted for Alexandra from the beginning as she deals with her insecurities and learns to let go of her haunting past. And having Phillip finally accepting her as she is makes her growth as a character stronger. Surely, this is one story I’d recommend to readers. And though this is a common theme used in the Desire line, the author pulled off all the stops by adding her unique touch and making the story her own. So that is something worth the read.

WHEN I FOUND YOU by Kate James

Reviewed by: Amanda

When I Found You by Kate James is a super emotional story that will leave you satisfied until the end. Ms. James creates a cast of deeply flawed characters who are tested and tried throughout the book. The main focus of this story, in my perspective, is trust. I was moved by the inner turmoil of the H/h and I rooted for them along their bumpy journey towards their fulfilling forever after.

Book 3 in the K-9 Trilogy – When I Found You tells the story of Logan O’Connor who appeared in the previous K-9 books. In this book we get to know Logan on a personal level. The author delves deep into his life, chiseling away the tough outer walls he’d built around himself, revealing his soft side. A side where his emotions are raw and his goals are unraveled without overpowering the romantic side of the story. Meanwhile, the heroine of this clean, sweet, suspenseful and emotionally gripping story is Ariana Atkins, Chief of Security at the San Diego International Airport. When a series of security breaches scare the hell out of her, Ariana begins to question herself on whether someone is threatening her on purpose. Because of panic, she must work with Logan in finding the person behind the breaches although all fingers point in her direction! Of course sparks fly between Logan and Ariana. But is it enough to keep Logan from believing Ariana is the one instigating the breaches? Grab a copy of this book and find out!

Husband Heel by Louise Cusack

This is a steamy hot and sizzling story about a Rose Bay socialite her three best friends and the bodyguard that is keeping her safe after her ex-husband Marcus Knight (well nearly ex-husband )gets himself into trouble.

Louella Knight is wealthy and can come across as standoffish she grew up in the country with parents that were anything but loving she is emotionally scared from her childhood but she has made three friends that she loves and would do anything for Jill, Angela and Fritha who we have met Jill and Angela have had their HEA beautifully I must say and now will Louella finally find love and happiness and really good sex with her bodyguard the one with that tattoo and the body to go with it?

Nicholas Aston comes across as a quiet man he shows strength and is most polite and caring and has been keeping Louella safe he is so attracted to Louella but he must keep his job and pleasure separate. He also has some issues from his past and he has secrets that he has kept from Louella for a reason. Her safety is so important to him and with danger lurking when Marcus is kidnapped and a ransom demand is made he moves to the room next to her to keep her safer. How much longer can he keep his thoughts and feelings to himself?

I loved this one from start to finish so many emotions and feelings are jumping off the pages and the sex is hot and sizzling as Louella finally finds love with the right man and of course Nicholas needs Louella as much as she needs him and there are many ups and downs to go through before they get their awesome HEA. The settings are wonderful and the love that these four girls share and what they would do for each other is beautiful, bring on Fritha's story I am sure it is going to be a fab story. Thank you MS Cusack for another awesome sizzler :)

Review by Amanda

Scorch by Dani Collins is a steamy, passionate story with a cast of imperfect characters who command your attention from the start. Fast-paced and enjoyable, Scorch, second novella in the Firefighters of Montana series, is a must read. Jacqui Edwards carried around a lot of emotional baggage ever since she lost her husband. She has returned to Glacier Creek to sell her home before heading back to Florida and move on with her life. What she hasn’t bargained on is meeting Vin Kingston, her husband’s best friend. Vin has never gotten over the guilt of losing his best friend. But seeing Jacqui, the urge to protect her takes up residence in his head…but below the friendliness between them burns a passion too hard to resist!
