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.

Another charming new series by Sarah Morgan, “From Manhattan With Love” takes the readers on a carriage ride of romance in the city of New York, as three friends try to make a life in the Big Apple, pulsing with energy and dreams.

SleeplessInManhattan-ManhattanSeries#1-SarahMorgan

First in the series, “Sleepless In Manhattan” sure gives Paige Walker sleepless nights as she loses her current job in a New York minute! But not one to lay still, an organizer and a go-getter, Paige decides to start her own event planner business with her two friends. Then again having lived a young life of in and out of hospitals, insecurities and fears always shadow her. And here comes the hero Jake Roman0, childhood friend, crush and her brother’s best friend, motivating her, disarming her and riling her to get her dream fulfilled.

Self made billionaire, Jake Romano has overcome childhood abandonment, raised by a loving adopted mother, and he’d worked hard to get to the pinnacle of his success. Supportive and caring of his friends, Paige is his beating heart and he would do anything to keep her protected and help with her success.

As the flare of passion between them reaches fruition, so does Sarah Morgan’s penning of Paige and Jake’s love story. Full of wit and humor, quirks and fears, insecurities and determination, Sarah portrays it all in full glory. Rich with emotions, strong in friendship and passionate in its romance, “Sleepless In Manhattan” is an ultra charming start to the series.

Brenda Novak’s “Whiskey Creek Series” has been and is one of the most coveted reads, full of small town charm. Residents with warmth and support fill Whiskey Creek. There are stories of romance and love to be told, regrets and redemptions to be faced and support and friendships to be fulfilled.

DiscoveringYou-WhiskeyCreek#10

The Amos brothers have had it rough with a father coming out of prison and taking residence with them. Yet they have managed to beat odds to make a positive life for themselves. And they have found love to keep them in line and give them a purpose to life.

“Discovering You” is a revelation of attraction between Rod Amos and India Sommers. They share a similar past of wild life and insecurities that seem to forge a bond between them. India Sommers moves to Whiskey Creek to make a fresh start for herself and her daughter. Rod Amos is working hard to leave behind a tragic past and move past the judging eyes of the town.

Two lost souls come together to test the waters of attraction, two people want to protect each other from their painful pasts, and two wonderful people will do anything to make sure no one gets hurt.

“Discovering You” is another wonderful story of love and caring, family and loyalty, support and solidarity. And Brenda Novak gives India and Rod another chance at love and redemption as they overcome the dangers of the past and put behind the guilt to look forward to a future together.

 

Delores Fossen is one of the most lovable and warm persons I ‘ve had the pleasure of reading. With equal doses of romance and danger, with and charm, and throw in those hardworking and sexy McCord Brothers and we’ve got a charismatic love story.

TexasOnMyMind-McCordBrothers-DeloresFossen

Captain Riley McCord is back home in Spring Hill, TX recuperating from an injury and taking a break from being in the Air Force. Coming back also brings back childhood memories and of his lost love, Claire Davison. Settling her late grandfather’s estate may keep Claire busy along with raising her son. But her heart beats for Riley, and the lost years only strengthen that love. With Claire being given the job of keeping an eye on Riley, hiding her feelings only gets harder and being close to Claire only makes him want to spend the rest of his life with her.

With lots of unanswered questions and Claire’s dynamite of a son thrown into the equation, Claire and Riley get a second chance to give themselves a happily ever after. Down to earth and with the entire town of Spring Hill meddling, “Texas On My Mind” is a warm read of family and support, friends and care.
