Harper Crossing is brimming with love, new couples and a support structure of family, friends and caring – a sweet charming town filled with so much warmth that makes us dream of such communities and towns everyday. Love stories written by Melanie and Shawna with so much heart, and let’s not forget the heat of passion induced into their romances, giving the readers a healthy dose of romance, wit and fire to soothe a reader’s cravings!

One night of no sex all talk is what keeps Dax Archer away from other women, no roving eyes and no one night stands. That one night of soulful conversation with the stunning and beautiful Valentine Virginia is all it takes for Dax to breath and live for those memories. “All He Feels” is her absence, her laughter and her absence even as he misses her very presence.

Virginia ‘Ginny’ Valentine couldn’t forget that one night with Dax Archer anymore than he can. Leaving a brutal singing career behind, she comes to Harper Crossing to find some answers to her past, her heritage and give her crush over Dax a chance to evolve into a forever after. A nice twist with her past to make it interesting, add in the past characters as they make their presence felt, and throw in Dax’s mother and sister into the equation,  is an emotional and laughing riot of an intoxicating romance.

With immense talent, the sister duo weave together another sweet romance with seamless effort. I love these two, with their mastery of blending characters, plots and narration into one heartfelt and heated love story. It is almost impossible to say where Melanie starts and Shawna ends or vice versa.

Received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

Violet Duke’s latest “Unfinished Loved Series”, is about four brothers who find love but lose only to get another chance down the years to reclaim it. It’s fresh, it’s new and it makes it even more emotional and romantic to wait for that HEA…few years from now in book time.

Second in the Unfinished Series, “Before That Promise” (Part 1) is the love story of Skylar Sullivan from the “Can’t Resist” series and Drew Lawson from the “Cactus Creek” series. Anyone following Violet’s series would remember these two when they were young and trying to fit into families and live a normal life.

Drew and Skylar are the best of friends growing up and best of friends grown up. Careers and life may have taken these two on different paths, but their path to love has always been one track and only towards each other. Super smart, handsome and intelligent Drew Lawson is the quite, silent and an angry teenager having grown into a responsible and sought after young cyber hacker consulting and providing high tech protection to some very high profile individuals and company. Christmas doesn’t sit very well with him and relationships and roots may not be in his cyber list!

Skylar Sullivan is one vivacious, spunky and smart young lady working towards becoming a social worker. Her chemistry with Drew is amazing, her crush on Drew even as a young teenager is ultra charming, and with the Spencer brothers as her guardians, it’s even funny that they never realized her love for their foster brother.

The second book in the series, “Before That Promise” (Part 1) is another short and charming love story as Drew and Skylar try to come to terms with their love for each other and make themselves a promise to be there for each other and a promise to fulfill their love for each other. Can’t wait to read the second part of their love story in “Every Promise Unspoken”…. coming soon.

Received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

My first read of Elizabeth Sinclair, “Bound By Fire” starts off a bit too slow and the crux of the story doesn’t move as much as trying to create a relationship between Jesse Kingston and Karen Ellis.

boundbyfire-elizabethsinclair-nov2016

Pregnant Karen is trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé Paul Jackson’s death in a wildfire and Jesse as the best friend of Paul has been trying to prove that Paul’s death was not an accident. With a common goal, Karen and Jesse end up spending time together uncovering clues, and the proximity leading to attraction. As they explore the sparks between them, a killer in plain sight will do anything to keep things under the ashes

The plot is interesting and not something new. It’s the narration and the lack of that grip on the plot, the lackluster suspense and thrill is what did not work for me. The story did drag in the middle pages. But the bottom line is that “Bound By Fire” can be read at least once. It’s one of those books that can be re-visited.
