Lindsay McKenna is one of the best military romance writers that I’ve come across and some of her books are immensely memorable and have revisited numerous times. Along with badass soldiers, she also writes some great badass cowboy stories.

WindRiverLawman-WindRiverValley#6-LindsayMcKenna-Oct2018

Book six in the Wind River Valley series, “Wind River Lawman”, gives us another glimpse into the life of army veterans, their service and courage, survival and betrayal, and the acclimating into the norm of everyday life.  

As her law enforcement career keeps Sarah Carter busy, her search for someone loyal and hardworking to take care of her ever active grandmother brings her in contact with retired Navy medic Dawson Callahan. When Sarah takes a bullet on the job, Dawson steps in to take care of things on the ranch as well as her. And with fate playing the love cards, looks like Dawson and Sarah are destined to be making a future together.

As always, Lindsay McKenna does another great job at a story filled with warmth, support, compassion, courage and love. She gives importance to the trials of war returned vets and with enough support, compassion and empathy, they can lead normal lives.

Lauren Dane writes some pretty interesting romantic suspenses and the Chase Brothers sure set the ball rolling. I don’t get a chance to read as often, but anytime I pick a book of hers, her stories leave me with warm feelings and satisfaction of reading a good romance.

TakingChase-LaurenDane-Jun2018

“Taking Chase” is no exception as Sheriff Shane Chase tries to figure out the mystery behind the new resident of Petal, Georgia, Cassie Gambol. Cassie has a lot to hide and a tenacious desire to start a new life in the little town of warm residents and friendly people. Then again amidst the mystery of her past, is the the temptation of the Sheriff himself. As they try to work on a relationship dancing around each other, Cassie’s past catches up with her and Shane has a lot to lose as he fights for the love of his life.

The Chase brothers are a sexy bunch  of siblings, raised with morals and ethics as they are bound to protect the loves of their lives as well as the little town of Petal. With humor and great affection, witty dialogues and some sizzling chemistry, Lauren Dane makes “Taking Chase” a reading pleasure.

“Recipe For Disaster” is the perfect blend of romance, wit, humor and charisma. As Tracy Solheim pits the gritty and delicious Secret Service Agent Griffin Kellar against the feisty and sweet Pastry Chef, Marin Chevalier working at the White House and also a very close friend to the First Family.

Even as they fight their attraction for each other, Marin is thrown into the crosshairs of a counterfeit ring and becomes a suspect, something that doesn’t agree with the Griffin. As they maneuver of the many twists of their romance, Marin and Griffin sure create enough drama to keep the White House and the readers pretty entertained!

Another entertaining romance from Tracy Solheim!

Whiskey River has been pretty busy with the extension of friends, love that seems to stalk the friends with second chances and happily ever after’s. Here is another extension of the Whiskey River Series, Devil’s Rock At Whiskey River, starting off with the “Rebel Pilot Texas Doctor”.

RebelPilotTexasDoctor-EveGaddy

Here’s another cute story of a rebel pilot wooing his high school friend, now a Texas doctor. A Whiskey River gala brings Travis Sullivan and Tobi Robinson face to face, and surprise…surprise…. hearts still flutter!!! Attraction simmers, love fires and before long, they are the new couple in town.

Like every love story, Tobi and Travis have some fears and personal trauma that needs to be laid to rest before they can finally find happiness with each other. And like every love story, they’ll find a way…. just as Eve Gaddy has a knack of narrating a sweet story and giving it a twist.

If you haven’t read Pamela Clare, you definitely are missing some stunning stories and “Holding On” is another of her best works I’ve read.

HoldingOn-PamelaClare

Conquering mountains and Everest, surviving the loss of friends and guilt, coming home to family and friends, giving a chance to second live and love and is what makes “Holding On” another brilliant read.

Harrison Conrad lost immensely on that life-changing trek of Mt. Everest. Coming back to Scarlet Springs is only the beginning of a life he’s not sure he deserves. And with Kenzie Morgan in the midst of his close circle, guilt and attraction are at warring ends. Member of the K9 team of Search and Rescue, and with a successful dog training business, Kenzie loved Harrison forever and manipulating his recovery by saddling a dog and being supportive is her genius move.

As always, Pamela Clare brings to life two admirable characters with their imperfections and fear, courage and bravery, love and passion as they battle demons to build a future. “Holding On” is one brilliant book to hold on!
