A new series from Kat Martin is always a pleasure to read. From The Raines to The Brodies to The Boss Inc, all have been a thrilling pleasure to read and now the Texas Trilogy is out next week, and is definitely worth giving it a read.BeyondReason-TexasTrilogy#1-KatMartin

Book one of the series, “Beyond Reason” opens with a funeral and the magnetic presence of billionaire Lincoln Cain. A funeral that raises more questions for Carly Drake, inheriting Drake’s Trucking after her grandfather’s death and now a close friend and ally of many years is six feet under.

Linc has turned his life around, thanks to Carly’s grandfather and now has success, money and power riding his ass, but he may not be able to keep his promise of keeping Carly safe as a series of incidents seem to target Carly. As the mystery unfolds and a betrayal from within rocks the company, Carly and Linc have to put their lives on line to out maneuver the danger that is trying to take control of Drake’s Trucking.

An interesting plot that starts off the new Texas Trilogy, “Beyond Reason” is captivating. Kat Martin’s characters, Linc and Carly make a good team with their stubbornness, courage and intelligence, giving the story a good dose of passion and suspense to make this a worthy read.

Brenda Novak has set her bar pretty high with “This Heart Of Mine”, which happens to be my super top favorite story of hers…and will remain so forever. Having said that she has introduced us to the Silver Spring series and The New Horizons Boys Ranch in the first book of the series, “Finding Our Forever”, another emotional and engrossing series, and the second book in the series, “No One But You”, will take you on another ride of forgiveness and love, with Dawson Reed and Sadie Harris at the center of this heartwarming love story.


Having being acquitted of murdering his foster parents, all Dawson Reed wants is to build his farm, bring his special needs sister back home and live a quite life, away from the judgmental eyes of the Silver Springs townsfolk. Easier said than done, when he hires Sadie Harris to be a caretaker and housekeeper for her sister.

Trying to finalize her divorce with her abusive cop husband, Sadie Harris needs is a decent job to get keep custody of her son, and be independent and build a steady life with her son. Accepting a job as Dawson’s housekeeper has the town gossiping and her abusive ex becoming dangerous and evil.

It started a bit slow for me, but once the story got into the thick of things, the plot moved with great strides. Another wonderful story by Brenda Novak, of two people who find love amidst danger and gossip, who care for each other and courageous enough to defy threats and go to any lengths to keep each other out of harm’s way. This story questions our morals and opinions about life changing incidents, about giving people second chances, of being influenced by power and judgments, and of forgiveness and love.

A story that needs to be read to fully enjoy it’s content. And when Elijah, Gavin and Aiyana make an appearance that is just the sweetest icing on the cake!

I adore reading series featuring siblings, matchmaking elders, and families going through rough times despite being billionaires just showing that they are human as well. A new series by Ruth Cardello, “The Westerly Billionaires” are here to entice us, charm us and warm themselves into the readers’ hearts.


Heiring the series, Brett Westerly, being “In The Heir” to the Westerly Corporation, along with the corporation comes a legacy of split families and divided loyalties, creating friction among the siblings. But a new twist by the family matriarch throws Brett Westerly into a loop with Alisha Coventry, the supposed fiancé of his brother.

All Alisha Coventry wanted was to help a friend get his inheritance and help his family who has been like the family she never had. Never in her wildest dreams did she ever think of being attracted to her supposed fiancé’s older brother. Yet circumstances break the fake engagement leaving her vulnerable to pain and heartache and also for Brett to woe her and what can be better than a cruise to get the love of his life.

A great start to the series, Brett is the quintessential billionaire, having lost a lot and trying to bridge the gap with his siblings, the peacemaker and the golden child to run the legacy, his character so very lovable, humble and humanly relatable. And his perfect complement, Alisha is the most loving and kind person you can come across, her desire to help friends, honest and open minded, one of the best characters that Ruth Cardello created and these two just make a stunning couple.

Great start to a series, “In The Heir” is a wonderfully charming story of family dynamics, love and forgiveness, and looking forward to the next sibling to get hitched. And the cover is gorgeous!!!!!

This Midnight Series continues the saga of its incredible brave soldiers, fighting for justice, protecting the innocent from incomprehensible evil and as part of this elite group, Nick Mancino will do whatever it takes to protect and serve, whether it is his country or the love of his life in Lisa Marie Rice’s latest, “Midnight Fever.”


The beautiful and brilliant scientist Kay Hudson has a thing for Nick Mancino, but a deadly biological weapon seems to have gotten her attention, putting the top officials in imminent danger not to mention the innocents. But Nick is not one to be sidelined and with his brothers in arms beside him, they will eliminate the threat at any cost.

I love these Midnight thrills with their brilliant storylines, and not to mention the ultra brilliant heroines, and their kickass partners. Lisa Marie Rice is a pro at these and I never miss reading any of her books.

Short but captivating, Lisa Marie Rice gives her readers an adrenaline ride of danger and passion, love and support, giving importance to relationships and friends. The Midnight series may connect the events and characters in each story, but each of them can be read a standalone.

I came across Victoria James quite by accident and I ended up liking her books. Her “Still Harbor” series is one of my favorites I’ve read. Book three in the Shadow Creek, Montana Series, is another charming story of tragedy, regrets, forgiveness and a chance at love and a future with no guilt.


Doctor Luke Thompson is the epitome of pain and guilt as tries to get over the fact that he was responsible for a tragedy that brought pain to innocent people. He never thought that he could take a guilt free breath until he unknowingly falls for the woman who is facing the loss due to his actions.

Gwen Bailey is one of the most sweetest, helpful and kindest persons that you can come across. Always thinking of others and coming from a family filled with love and support, it is hard for her to accept the truth about the love of her life Luke.

A story filled with pain and loss, hope and forgiveness, love and care, it takes Luke and Gwen and whole lot of time to overcome the guilt and pain. Another emotional love story by Victoria James, well written and narrated, “The Doctor’s Redemption” is filled with warmth and love.
