Happily Inc.! What a charming and unusual name for a town of warm citizens, with hearts of gold and happily-ever-afters. Susan Mallery has a penchant for creating wonderful romances in tiny little towns, magical and enchanting.

SecondChanceGirl-HappilyInc#2-SusanMallery-Sept2017

It has been a while for me reading Susan Mallery, and it always delights me when I read her romances. And her latest, “Second Chance Girl” is no surprise as Mathias Mitchell, the resident artist and infamous playboy makes home, right next to his attractive and so called friend and gamekeeper, Carol Lund.

It’s hard to review a book that deserves to be read to enjoy its full beauty and the romance between Mathias and Carol. Their relationship is one made of the perfect blend of friendship, lust, arguments and indulgence. The supporting characters of friends and siblings, the duke and the button lady, the cute nightmare of a dog Sophie, and the intense and rib tickling dialogues that bring out the flavor and spice of “Second Chance Girl” is a pure delight of a read.

Continuing with her wonderful series, “From Manhattan With Love”, Sarah Morgan extended her series to the extended family, and each book is a treasure trove of fun, emotions, romance and charm.

HolidayInTheHamptons-FromManhattanWithLove#5-SarahMorgan-Aug2017

With Daniel finally settling down with Molly, looks like fate is pointing it’s finger towards Felicity Knight aka Fliss and her handsome and sexy vet Seth Carlyle and did I mention that he was also her ex-husband, once upon a time.

With lots of unanswered questions, a terrible past that widened the gap between these young lovers, and a love that refused to die, destiny has different plans for Seth and Fliss. Escaping to the Hamptons from New York to avoid Seth, she literally ends up in the same place has Seth…talk about karma and fate!

Seth will not let Fliss go this time, and Fliss has a bucket load of insecurities to overcome and accept the fact that she never was able to let Seth go. Filled with some witty and emotional conversations, opening herself to family and friends, overcoming the fear of love and loss, Sarah Morgan created Fliss to perfection. With immense patience and love, tenacity and understanding, Seth is one of those book boyfriends, you wish was in your life.

Sarah Morgan’s “From Manhattan With Love” series is utterly charming, whimsical and enchanting as the magic of New York spreads to the extended family. And looks like Cupid is ready to strike the second Knight twin.

Whatever books I’ve read of Maisey Yates, have been fun, lighthearted and warm. Her latest in the Copper Ridge Series, “Wild Ride Cowboy” is just as charming reuniting Alex Donnelly and Clara Campbell.

WildRideCowboy-CopperRidgeSeries-MaiseyYates-Aug2017

The death of his best friend and brother in arms brings Alex Donnelly back home to fulfill his friend’s last wishes, a task he’s not looking forward to, and an act that would keep in close proximity to the one love in his life, Clara Campbell.

Losing her family and a brother she had adored leaves Clara Campbell alone to run their depleting ranch, trying to make ends meet and survive on the meager earnings. Realizing that the ranch was left in the guardianship of Alex Donnelly is as shocking as her feelings for Alex.

“Wild Ride Cowboy” is sweet ride of read. Alex as the protective cowboy and the man in love, helping Clara is a treat and Clara as the courageous woman trying to keep her family ranch going is one of Maisey’s strong characters I’ve read her. Add in the sparks of attraction and Maisey Yates does a fine job developing their relationship making it a pleasure to read this story.

Brenda Novak has introduced us to the New Horizons Boys Ranch in her latest Silver Springs Series, a ranch to give troubled teenagers a second chance to turnaround and a chance for a new lease of life.

UntilYouLovedMe-SilverSprings#3-July2017

“Until You Loved Me” is an emotional journey of an abandoned baby boy Hudson King, now an NFL superstar and rich to the core. And he owes Aiyana and The Horizons Boys Ranch for his giving him a purpose and direction to his life. Yet his past haunts him with unanswered questions. A chance encounter with a scientist though gives him some reprieve, and surprise, surprise, a chance at becoming a father.

Ellie Fisher the scientist wants one night to ride the wild side, to forget a nasty breakup with her fiancée and she sure lives up to it with Hudson King. And that one night of being wild and naughty makes her pregnant and a chance of motherhood.

Pro-sportsman, public figure, handsome Hudson King meets the quite, nerdy, workaholic, no-idea-about-sports Ellie Fisher. Sparks fly, attraction flares and now a child bonds them together under the same roof, giving them a chance at love and forever. Practical and analytical Ellie supports Hudson through the drama and the trauma of his past, and the ever kind and generous Hudson makes sure Ellie is being treated with love, care and respect.

A beautifully narrated story of support and care, love and understanding, redemption and fulfillment, “Until You Loved Me” is a perfect blend of emotions and romance that gives Hudson and Ellie their happily ever after. Brenda Novak is an amazing writer that I admire and enjoy her stories when she blends real life experiences to the story, adding that twist of charisma and genuinity.

The very first few pages of “New Your Actually” give an insight into the writing prowess of Sarah Morgan. It is pure genius and truly orgasmic, setting the tone for New York’s most famous advice columnist Molly and the crusader of the underdogs, hiding behind a façade of cynical lawyer Daniel and their love story in the Big Apple.

NewYorkActually-ManhattanWithLove#4-SarahMorgan-Jun2017

Hiding away from the public after a nasty past, Molly is content with doling advise in cyber space, but how can she resist Daniel and his rented dog Brutus aka Ruffles!!! Well dogs meet, become friends forever, and now Daniel has to convince Molly that he is the person to love her forever and falling in love is nothing to run away from.

The entire story line is a kaleidoscope of wit, emotions, care, and love of two people accepting that love is for real, accepting the fact that new friends can be made and those very friends will stay by you through hurt, accepting the fact there a really good people in this world with genuine care and affection, and that mantle doesn’t entirely belong to only your loyal canine.

Sarah Morgan’s “From Manhattan With Love” series is utterly charming, whimsical and enchanting as the magic of New York spreads to the extended family. I thought “Miracle On 5th Avenue” was my favorite of the series so far, but “New York Actually” steals my heart…. for now. Now let’s see how Fliss and Seth fare their separation, reunion and more.
