Who can forget the wonderful Whiskey River Series by Eve Gaddy? And any continuation of the series is an added bonus, and a perfect read of another love story in the romantic town of Whiskey River.

ATexasChristmasReunion-WhiskeyRiverChristmas-EveGaddy-Nov2017

Fourteen years is a long time for two lovers to be apart, tread through different paths of life and come back full circle to where it had all began. Circumstances, blackmail and social boundaries separate teenage lovers Harlan Sullivan and Savannah Taylor. And now destiny brings them back to their hometown of Whiskey River, with Harlan buying out the construction company that Savannah happens to be the office manager.

Old feelings haven’t died, the spark of lust and attraction is very much present, and with the feeling of belonging with each other even stronger than before, and add in the magical season of Christmas, and “A Texas Christmas Reunion” is a warm and emotional read. Eve Gaddy did a wonderful job penning a beautiful story of love and support, relationships and friendships, the good and the bad of life, and add in a dash of the previous couples in attendance, and we have a story to read by the fireplace.

From the publication of her very first book “When You Are Ready” to now, Jennifer L. Berg has become an illustrious writer with her eloquent narration, keeps every character in her heart and writes with her soul.

A new series, “By The Bay”, with the latest title, “The Choices I Have Made”, she gives the readers another thought provoking and insightful story of two young teenage lovers, Jake Jameson and Molly McIntire, torn apart by circumstances and the choices made.

Now twelve years later, Jake Jameson is back in his hometown, as a doctor and to fulfill his father’s last wishes and rites. Twelve years away did not dim his love for Molly nor did it ease the pain or memories of their past. And coming face to face with her, makes him question the choices he had made and the distance they had created.

Never leaving her little bay town, and now running her family’s B&B, Molly McIntire buried the bittersweet memories of Jake deep inside and is ready to move on with her life. But then the past comes knocking on her door for a place to stay, a friend to talk with and all the anger and fears bubble over, making Molly question the choices she had made twelve years ago.

“The Choices I Have Made” is a stunning story of two beautiful people, the choices that have separated them, fate that brings them together and destiny wants to give them a second chance to build a future together. Jennifer Berg as always dead-on with penning the emotions, fears and insecurities of two people in love, of the circumstances that separated them, and the reconciliation of their anger and residual resentment, that gives them a second chance for a life together.

Rachel Lacey is coming out with a brand new series, “Stranded”, with “Crash And Burn” leading the series as Isa Delgado and Nate Peters are stranded in the wilderness with danger and flames chasing them.

CrashAndBurn-Stranded#1-RacheclLacey-Sept2017

Working as a volunteer, Isa Delgado agrees to kill two birds with one stone; accompany a dog to its adopted home and get over her fear of flying. Silicon Valley billionaire Nate Peters volunteers his time and jet for animal rescue missions and having Isa, as his co-traveller is an added perk. But then as fate has it and Isa’s worst nightmare come true, her first flight ends in a crash in the wilderness as forest fires rage around them, and it becomes a race against time as to who is going to win the fiery battle.

A different path for Rachel Lacey from her contemporary romances, “Crash And Burn” sure brings out her creative side as she explores the wilderness romance, survival and developing a relationship between Isa and Nate with no supporting characters or sub-plots. She sure does a good job and if you’ve read her previous books, you’ll definitely relate to the change in her writing and narration, and she keeps it interesting and captivating.

“Crash And Burn” comes out on September 15, 2017

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.

NoOneButYou-SilverSprings#2-BrendaNovak

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 always enjoy reading Lori Foster! There’s something so very charming and captivating about her heroes and heroines, interesting plots and the crossover/spin off series are always my favorite.

UnderPressure-BodyArmor#1-LoriFoster

Her latest series, “Body Armor” and I’m late getting to this series, is just as absorbing and delightful as her other stories. First in the series, “Under Pressure” has ex-MMA fighter Leese Phelps fighting to save his heart. After a rough past, he has managed to get to a point of respectability and make a good life as a bodyguard with Body Armor. And it looks like nothing can protect him from the sassy and on the run Catalina Nicholson.

With secrets that threaten to kill her, Catalina runs right into Leese as he saves her from being kidnapped. Never mind that Body Armor was hired to keep her safe, but as the truth comes out, it looks like Leese is going to keep Cat under lock and key literally and with proximity those sparks of attraction seem to ignite Leese and Cat.

I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. I loved how she brings in the characters from her previous series and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them. A definite good read for me.
