A new series from Melinda Leigh brings on another dose of adrenaline rush and suspense, as she introduces the readers to Morgan Dane and Lance Kruger, their thirst for justice that reunites them and an attraction that flares into passion and the evolving of their relationship.

SayYouAreSorry-MorganDane#1-MelindaLeigh

Book one in the Morgan Dane series, “Say You’re Sorry”, plunges Morgan Dane into an investigation of her one time baby sitter, Tessa. Coming to Scarlet Falls with her three daughters to start fresh after her husband’s death, was on her agenda. Getting back into her role of a prosecutor was her next step, but circumstances take her to the other side of law, as she sacrifices her career to defend an innocent.

Teaming up with Lance Kruger, an ex-cop and now a private investigator, the hunt for the murderer reveals secrets and betrayals that led to the death of an innocent young girl. As the secrets fall open, so does the relationship between Lance and Morgan, giving them a second chance to see if they can have a future.

What I love about Melinda Leigh is her prowess at peeling layer after layer of revelations, keeping that suspense going, making “Say You’re Sorry” a very interesting read, as she gives immense attention to details of the investigation as well as developing the relationship between Lance and Morgan. Placing secondary characters at the right place in the plot, making them an important part of the story adds strength and character.

A brilliant start to what seems to be a brilliant series!

I’ll most likely be so sad to see this “Most Likely” series end so soon. Stories of three friends, their pasts and presents, their hopes and dreams, all so beautifully penned by Catherine Bybee.

The final book, “Making It Right”, gives the rebel of Rive Bend, OR, her very own happy ending as she finally puts a closure to the mystery surrounding her father’s death. Inheriting her father’s legacy as the Sheriff of River Bend, Jo Anne Ward is desperate for some action, as the tiny town makes her job too easy. Signing up for expert law enforcement training is a turning point of her life, bringing special FBI agent Gill Clausen into her life.

MakingItRight-MostLikely#3

As they work together at the training seminar, they also work together in quenching the lustful thirst of desire that sparks between them. To Jo’s restless heart, Gill is her anecdote of patience. As things turn dangerous in River Bend, Gill is the shield of protection that helps in bringing home the truth of Jo’s father’s death and secrets buried long ago.

A brilliant end to the series as she finally gives Jo her dream of moving out of River Bend, yet close enough to visit her friends. A protective and calm federal agent who gives her new lease of live, beyond River Bend and a dream job with a future together, “Making It Right” for Jo and her friends.

It’s a beautifully narrated story, charming with witty dialogues, the essence of friendship and care so eloquently shown, the passion and love sublime and the whole story just gives off warmth that fills a heart with pleasure and happiness.

As Bybee says, “Sometimes, friends are all the family we need.”

Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visiting several times and this is one series you definitely don’t want to miss reading.

Melody Anne’s “Billionaire Aviators Series” is still as intense as the passion that smolders between the protagonists, choppy and turbulent as the waters and skies they ride and just as warm and lovely as the Armstrong brothers try to find love albeit the demands of their father’s will.

TurbulentWaters-BillionaireAviators#3-MelodyAnny-Jan2017

Being a coast guard is what pilot Nick Armstrong lives for everyday. The adrenaline rush of rescues, being a savior and going beyond the call of duty, fuels Nick’s passion for danger. Injured and being on the ground was never the part of his plan, and going through physical therapy with Chloe Reynolds was not even in his dreams. Laid up, injured and in pain he may be, but his heart and libido seems to crave Chloe Reynolds.

Chloe Reynolds is manipulated into becoming Nick’s physical therapist for a reason, but her heart doesn’t believe that Nick can be responsible for the deaths of his team members in that fatal crash on rescue mission. Healing Nick is her ultimate goal, but can her heart heal from heartbreak is something that Chloe is not sure of. Wavering between her father’s manipulations and her love for Nick, she sure is caught in the crosshairs of losing Nick forever when her secret comes out.

“Turbulent Waters” is another fabulous romance by Melody Anne; as she weaves a story of betrayal and pain, love and passion, forgiveness and acceptance as Nick and Chloe ride the choppy waters of love for a future together.

A great start to another awesome series by Marina Adair, “It Started With A Kiss” has all the ingredients to touch your heart with it’s emotional and wonderful set up in a rustic Sierra Nevada town, a town full of loving people, supporting and caring for each other in sickness and health.

The world is a home for Tyson Donavon, as he lives his life rescuing people on the treacherous terrains and coming back home was never on his risky plan. But an ailing father and a failing family adventure’s lodge that is his father’s life, brings him home. What was supposed to be a short and temporary help seems to become more of a permanent fixture as fate throws Avery into his path.

The chemistry between Avery And Tyson is an amazing blend of charisma and love as they get to know each other, her patience and tenacity softens his heart, Tyson’s adventure for life gives Avery a chance to fulfill her bucket list, and slowly making a life together seems to be an adventure that these two are willing to risk.

Marina Adair is another of those wonderful writers who pays great attention to detail, keeping the narration emotional and poignant that makes you laugh, cry and scream as you are reading the story. Avery was just an amazing character and all kudos goes to Marina for creating a perfectly imperfect heroine.

And “It All Started With A Kiss”!

Have you guys visited the little town of Chance, Nebraska, prone to tornados of the weather kind and so much more of the tempestuous kind? Definitely all twisted up and tangled up in the game of love and passion!

tangledup-takingchances2-erinnicholas

Book two of Erin Nicholas’s Taking Chances series, has Max Grady chasing the storm of his lifetime with Bree McDermott. Adrenaline junkies they may be, but Max is feeling the need to put roots and Bree is all tangled up in inexplicable feelings of passion, care, love and the big commitment of life.

“Tangled Up” is one of those books that had to be read every word to feel the emotions, taste the passion, understand the sublime dynamics of Chance, enjoy the witty dialogues and savor the wholesome love story that Erin Nicholas created with so much care, depth and detail, created in tangent with “Twisted Up”

And this is where her prowess as a writer, a master of imagination and the queen of plotting is seen firsthand. Max and Bree will warm themselves into our hearts as they work out their fears and insecurities between heating up the sheets and cooling off with ice cream!

Do not miss one single line of this love story with its depth of emotions, wealth of family and friends, bucketful of witty banter and topped with hot fudge and cherry of love!
