A new series, “Heart Of Texas” from Donna Grant brings us another enticing series of hardworking cowboys, their destined stories of love, redemption and a future of togetherness.

TheChristmasCowboyHero-HeartOfTexas#1-Oct2017

“The Christmas Cowboy Hero”, the prodigal son of Texas and ex-navy Seal, Clayton East returns home to take care of his family’s failing ranch, deal with is father’s illness and give his mother much needed hope of keeping the family business on solid ground and emotional and financial support to his parents. The thought of dealing with theft, a wayward brother of the enticing Abby Harper, and the attraction that flares on sight was not something he had signed up for.

Abby Harper has a hard life since a teenager, the sole guardian of her siblings and working hard to keep food and roof over their heads. Her brother getting into trouble with Clayton she had wished was avoided and the interest that Clayton sparks, she really could do without, not on her agenda and not part of plan.

But fate and destiny don’t listen to anyone, and with Clayton giving her brother a chance to make up for his theft, Abby finds herself spending more time with Clayton on the ranch, and the perfect opportunity to know each other and fall in love.

And so we get another sweet Texas romance from Donna Grant, be it a paranormal or contemporary romance, we can never be disappointed with her stories. With a perfect blend of emotions and romance, chemistry and an interesting plot, “The Christmas Cowboy Hero” is a perfect reading pleasure for the holidays.

Jacket Summary:

A wallflower determined to fulfill a dying promise, the rogue she jilted years ago, and an orphaned baby are all brought together amidst the magic of Christmas in this new novella from Manda Collins.

Miss Merry Parks makes a deathbed promise to a schoolfriend that her infant daughter will be taken to her absent father. There’s only one problem—to find the baby’s father, she’ll have to consult his cousin, Viscount Wrotham, the man she jilted five years ago. The man she couldn’t forget.

Alex Ponsonby, Viscount Wrotham, is stunned to find Merry Parks—looking more lovely than ever–on his doorstep with an infant in her arms. His shock soon turns to dismay when he learns his own cousin William is the man who abandoned his wife and child. As head of the family he’s duty bound to see right is done. But he can’t let this opportunity pass. He’ll take Merry and the baby to his cousin, but he’ll woo her back in the process.

Merry agrees to travel with Alex and the baby to Wrotham Castle, where the entire Ponsonby family has gathered for Christmas, but her plans to see the baby settled then leave are ruined by a snowstorm. After five years apart, Alex and Merry will spend the week getting reacquainted. Perhaps it’s the spirit of the holiday, or the magic of the season, but there could be something else in the air this Yuletide…A Christmas Reunion.

The Christmas Cowboy Hero By Donna Grant

The Christmas Cowboy Hero_Cover

Jacket Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant returns to Texas, where a small-town legend just might find the greatest gift of all. . .

’Tis the season for ex-Navy SEAL Clayton East to come home for the holidays—even if the mood at home is anything but festive. His father is ill. The East Ranch is in financial trouble. And now it’s on Clayton, the prodigal son, to make sure his family doesn’t lose everything. 

Headstrong Abby Harper is like a mother to her younger brothers, who she’s helped raise since she was a teenager. Keeping them in line is no small task while she’s also working toward her college degree. And now that one of her brothers has been arrested for stealing cattle at the East Ranch, Abby is at her wits’ end. But there is a silver lining: Clayton East. He believes in second chances, and is willing to give one to her brother this Christmas. Letting beautiful Abby—and the inescapable longing in his heart—off the hook, however, is a whole ’nother story. Could it be that the woman of this local hero’s dreams has been back at home all along?

Christmas At Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

Christmas at Two Love Lane_Cover

Jacket Summary:

The best gift of all is the one you share with someone else. . .From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. He wasn’t a Charleston native, not with that adorable Yankee accent. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry—just a few no-strings dates while he was in town.

Macy Frost takes her professional services very seriously—how could she not, when she’s rumored to be a direct descendant of Cupid? Tech entrepreneur Deacon says he’s just trying to make his social-climbing aunt happy by being seen out and about with a few prominent beauties, but Macy insists she can make her client fall in love…for real. And Deacon can’t help but think she might be right. As charming as the palmetto trees and magnificent harbor may be, it’s the beautiful, breath-of-fresh- air Macy who’s become Deacon’s favorite part of the scenery. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart?

A Season Of You by Emma Douglas

A Season of You_Cover Image

Jacket Summary:

It’s Christmastime in the quaint island town of Cloud Bay, where love is always in season…Will has believed in love at first sight since the day he first laid eyes on Mina Harper five years ago. There was only one problem: She was happily married. Then, when Mina’s husband was killed by a drunk driver, Will figured she’d want nothing to do with a guy who owns a whiskey distillery. So he’s kept his feelings locked away, knowing that not even a Christmas miracle would be enough to melt Mina’s heart. . .

Mina believes her days of true love are behind her. Since losing her husband she’s kept to herself, content to do her own painting and stay out of the limelight that comes with her famous family. But when, after a freak accident, Will comes to her rescue, Mina can’t quite get him out of her mind. As curiosity turns into a fling during Cloud Bay’s first Christmas Festival, she finds it harder to convince herself that her feelings for Will are just mistletoe-inspired. Could Mina be ready to lay the past to rest and finally admit that what she really wants for Christmas—and forever—is Will?

Donna Grant continues her saga of the “Sons Of Texas”, weaving a plot around the Loughman brothers. The series started off with loved ones murdered and the Loughman father kidnapped. With a conspiracy spanning countries worldwide, the Loughman brothers are brought together to unravel the threat to the world and protect the ones they love.

TheLegend-SonsOfTexex#3-DonnaGrant-Jun2017

“The Legend”, oldest of the brothers and deadliest of the deadliest Delta Force, Wyatt Loughman knows the parties gunning for him and his family, and the deadly Saints hell bent on launching nuclear weapons to harm the human race. But more dangerous is Callie Reed, his forever love and the woman of his heart, and he will kill and get killed to protect her.

A renegade and ultra smart hacker and a trained sharp shooter, Callie Reed needs no protection to save herself, but the heart is all together a different matter. Teaming with Wyatt to bring the Saints down, death stalks them, emotions weigh them down and love gives them the motivation and courage to fight the evil, and she will kill anyone who threatens her only family the Loughmans, be it her own flesh and blood.

Things heat up in Donna Grant’s third book, “The Legend”, as secrets slowly come into the open, betrayal becomes their shadow and friends turn foe. Yet it also brings the entire Loughman family together, as they rally around their loved ones and fight one battle at a time, getting closer to eliminating the Saints.

Donna Grant’s first foray into romantic suspense is just invigorating and brilliant. She delivers with intensity and passion, as the soldiers protect and serve, live to fight for honor and justice and live to fight for the women of their souls. Although each book can be read alone, it would be enjoyed much more if read in sequence as the sub plot flows from the other books, and new characters get introduced.

A five star read and a definite addition to the library!

Received an ARC from St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley for an honest review.

 

The war between the Dragon Kings and the Dark Fae continues in the Dark Kings saga as the Dragon Kings try to put an end to the war and bring peace with the mortals. And as each Dragon King falls victim to the game of love, they have more to lose now than ever.

Blaze-DarkKings#11-DonnaGrant-May2017

As the plot thickens and the secret of the Dragon Kings existence is blown open, Dragon King Anson is tasked with infiltrating the company that has been leaking their secrets and trying to convince one of the top personnel, Devon Abrams to cooperate has been a hardship on his heart.

As Devon and Anson give into their desire, getting kidnapped was not in their plan of action. As they battle the evils with their allies, slivers of secrets seem to burst open in this constant battle of revenge…. secrets that may lead to devastation. Yet in the midst of this mayhem, the “Blaze” of love is a welcome respite as the Dragon Kings mate with their forever.

I love the way Donna Grant has been leading this story, giving the Dragon Kings some love, yet keeping the crux of the plot very open with glimpses of what the future might be, slivers of secrets among the powers of the universe, a see-saw of emotions as foes are separated from allies, and courage and fears are put to the test.

“Blaze” has opened up some secrets and the plot thickens with suspense and anticipation as to what the next book would reveal.
