The Westerlys sure are heating up the pages with their love and romance as they try to find their place as well as their future partners. I’ve always loved reading series featuring siblings, matchmaking elders, and families going through rough times despite being billionaires just showing that they are human as well.

UpForHeir-WesterlyBillionaires#2-RuthCardello-Nov2017

The new series by Ruth Cardello, “The Westerly Billionaires” is exactly that and book two of the Westerly Heirs, “Up For Heir”, is just as enticing and charming. Self made billionaire and with lots of family secrets, Spencer Westerly is caught up in his work more, than playing to the fall-outs within his family. But then his grandmother is not one to give up, and with some help and manipulation comes Hailey Tiverton, the one and only woman Spencer had ever loved.

Life threw a curve ball in the young teenagers lives, breaking up Spencer and Hailey. Now Hailey is the guardian of her niece and circumstances bring her as the companion for Spencer’s grandmother. And the stage is well set for both these estranged lovebirds to put to rest the past and create a future.

Along with the siblings finding the love of their lives Ruth Cardello pays special attention to the chemistry among the family members as they try to mend broken relations, pain and betrayal. “Up For Heir” is another great read as the Westerly Billionaires steal our hearts.

It’s wonderful to re-visit the little town of Solitude, and visit with Seth Harding and his wife Carly, but then death and evil never rest and so neither does Seth and his team and Carly.

More than ever, bringing Carly in to help with the child is just as painful, with Carly recovering from a trauma.

New series to captivate…new book boyfriends to drool over…new romances to warm our hearts. Haven, Montana is the new setting for Jill Sanders new series and as she brings Tyler McGowan and Kristen Howell “Closer To You”.

CloserToYou-HavenMontana#1-JillSanders-Oct2017

Tyler McGowan is thrown into running the family’s oil business after his father’s death, a job he takes seriously and to heart, working hard to make sure the legacy becomes strong and rich. And definitely has no plans of selling it to anyone no matter how enticing and beautiful on two legs may be.

Convincing Tyler to sell his business is the means to her goal of getting to the top of the corporate ladder. But Kristen Howell never dreamed that the resistance can be stubborn and damn sexy with alpha tendencies, and she never thought her heart would get entangled in the take over.

As attraction flares, so do the evil forces around Tyler and Kristen, as they seem to be headed into trouble waters. But the tenacious Kristen and a determined Tyler will have to join heart, body and soul to protect what they care for. A very interesting and captivating story of love and intrigue, betrayal and lies, “Closer To You” is a great start to Jill Sanders’ new series.

And as always, Jill Sanders delivers a story worth reading. The chemistry between Tyler and Kristen is fiery, the equation between the brothers and mother is a treat to read and the suspense and intrigue is strong enough to keep the readers captivated.

Her Last Goodbye -May Never Come

Melinda Leigh’s “Morgan Dane” series became a roaring success with Morgan and Lance forming a great team as they fight for justice and their personal relationship seems to be simmering on the edge as they test those grounds.

HerLastGoodbye-MorganDane#2

Book two of the series; “Her Last Goodbye” takes Morgan and Lance on the hunt for the perpetrator who kidnapped a young mother. With a secondary plot intertwined into the main storyline, Lance and Morgan have to use whatever resources they have to unravel the person and mystery behind the kidnapping.

What you see may not always be what you get, and behind an innocent life may very well be an evil lurking, misleading and deceptive. And this is exactly what Lance and Morgan need to decipher to make sure this wouldn’t be “Her Last Goodbye”. Amidst the danger is the sublime romance between Morgan and Lance, taking another step forward in their relationship.

With a twisted plot, Melinda Leigh gives the readers a captivating second read in “Her Last Goodbye” as Morgan Dane settles in with her new life, her kids and family, danger and romance all rolled into one big package of suspense, love, family and support.

A fabulous read!
