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.

TurbulentIngtrigue-BillioanaireAviators#4

Years in the CIA kept Ace Armstrong away from his family, to protect and to serve his purpose. And finally comes the time to clear the misunderstandings and bridge the gap between siblings and what a sibling wedding seems to be the perfect setup to clear the air and recuperate from injuries. But Ace never saw the turbulence called Dakota Forbes entering his life and he’s not sure if Dakota is more dangerous to his life or the intriguing threats that are dogging him, placing his family in danger.

The ever positive, and charming Dakota Forbes wants to live life to the fullest. With a smart mouth and a sassy attitude, she keeps Ace on his toes and his heart in flitters, all the while hoping to keep her distance from the dangerous Ace. But then heart and mind never are in tandem, and with Dakota getting into the crosshairs of Ace’s dangerous past, she’s forced to stick close to Ace…finally giving her heart and soul to her future.

The final book in the Billionaire Aviators Series, “Turbulent Intrigue” is a wonderful ending to the Armstrong siblings’ saga. Coming together finally after their father’s death, clearing misunderstandings and finding their futures, coming together as one to fight back against the danger that comes to their doorstep, Melody Anne did a brilliant job giving a perfect ending to their stories.

The chemistry between Ace and Dakota is sizzling, the rapport between the brothers is so very supportive, warm and caring, Uncle Sherman is the perfect blend of family and mischief adding spice to the story!

Book two in Marina Adair’s Sequoia Lake series, Ford Jamison makes “Every Little Kiss” count to woo and protect Liv Preston and her adorable little boy.

EveryLittleKiss-SequoiaLake#2-MarinaAdair-Jul2017

After her husband’s death Liv Preston moves to Sequoia Lake with her six year old for a fresh start and her main goal is to make sure her special needs son can transition into his new life and get back the smiles he seems to have lost. Working hard and trying to fight life’s everyday battles, Liv never saw the spark of second chance living right next door.

Head of the K-9 Division in Reno, Ford Jamison comes to Sequoia Lake to make sure the past that he cannot seem to forget is managing life alright. As a search and rescue member, he understands loss, gut instincts and rescues, but he never would have thought his heart would get in the way of his life, and the past would speed bump his future, with secrets that may take Liv and her little boy away from him.

Another heartwarming story from Marina Adair, “Every Little Kiss” is a beautiful story of second chances, redemption and the warmth of friendship and care, as serene and gorgeous as Sequoia Lake and it’s residents.

“Every Little Kiss” is sweet, filled with promise and a lifetime of love.

Susan Stoker is one fine writer that I was glad to have come upon and enjoyed reading her stories. From her Badge Of Honor Series, Delta Force Heroes Series to Seal Of Protection Series and now to Ace Security Series, I’ve literally enjoyed every single one of her books. “Protecting Caroline”, “Protecting Fiona” and “Protecting Alabama” are my top favorites of her books that I’ve visited innumerable times…chicken soup for the soul!!!

ClaimingAlexis-AceSecurity#2-SusanStoker-Jul2017

“Claiming Alexis” is book two of the Ace Security Series, and is just as captivating and engrossing as her other works. As part of the Ace Security, Blake Anderson wants nothing more than to make their security company a success and protect and serve. But the new intern, Alexis Grant is giving him nightmares of the lust kind.

With a wealthy background that she doesn’t want to be a part of, Alexis Grant wants to prove that she can make it on her own, and she can make a very good undercover agent for Ace Security. As she goes undercover with a local gang that has deep roots, history and secrets that she needs to undercover to put an end to the gang.

And as always with these undercover jobs and as brave and courageous she is, the job becomes dangerous and she gets targeted for death. If Blake has anything to do about it, “Claiming Alexis” is on his game plan, and he’s going to make sure that the love of his life stays safe right next to him.

I just love Susan Stoker and her works. Her writing is intense, her characters charismatic, her plots entertaining and her narration are tight and emotionally charged to keep the readers engrossed and enthralled. And she’s one of those accomplished writers of shorter romances too.

For readers who haven’t read her, “Protecting Caroline” is free – a perfect opportunity to read Susan Stoker and enjoy her books – follow the link

Violet Duke needs no introduction. A brilliant writer of contemporary romance, if you haven’t read her before, you are missing some ultra charming love stories that get straight the heart. Coming up later this week is book one of her new series Juniper Hills, a new set of characters, their fears, and insecurities, hope and love, a new town of warm and caring people, and what is going to be a captivating series for the readers.

AllThereIs-JuniperHillsSeries#1-VioletDuke

Jack Rowan is trying to get his life back in construction after a stint in prison for a crime he never committed, but made a choice to sacrifice for his brother. A job instigated by his brother takes him to Juniper Hills, and his one and only love since his teens Emma Stevens. A perfect opportunity and yet a scary one to mend the relationship with Emma, and “All There Is” for Jake is patience, perseverance and some luck to get the love of his life back into his arms.

Emma Stevens has made a life for herself and her sister, leaving a past that burned to the ground, yet the guilt of losing her stepbrother to a fire never left her heart. Running a successful bakery and having made a fresh start, coming face to face with the boy next door she had loved and hates, was something that she had ever dreamed. But now thrown into a situation with Jake helping her fix her bakery, “All There Is” left for Emma is to let go of the past and giving this second chance of love giving it a shot.

Every book of Violet Duke’s always seems to give me a glimpse of the author herself. Endurance, hard work and perseverance is the norm of her heroines, as well as in real life and she reiterates the fact that there are so many good people in this world who are kind and helpful, and that all is not lost. With a positive attitude and courage, she pours her heart and soul into these wonderful stories of love, forgiveness, hope and faith.

My second read of Loreth Anne White started a tad bit slow, but sure picked up speed along with my heart beat, as “The Drowned Girls” kept resurfacing, brutalized, sodomized and victims of a larger, more powerful and unspeakable evil.

TheDrownedGirls-AngiePallorino#1-LorethAnneWhite-Jun2017

And Detective Angie Pallorino is trench deep in finding a serial killer targeting young girls, a case that can actually make her or break her. With her personal life shattered with a sick mother, and a wary relationship with her father, Angie is thrown into battling repressed memories of a childhood she can’t really reconcile.

Working alongside her new boss turned lover James Maddocks, both have a shitload of personal baggage they need to take care of, yet there are sparks and enough chemistry to support each other, work alongside to catch the killer or together die trying to save more innocents. They care, they help, and they have some kick-ass cops as family to protect and serve.

First of her new Angie Pallorino Series, “The Drowned Girls” sure will drown you in pages of suspense, the evil that hides behind power, of innocent lost and of secrets that people carry, that always have painful repercussions. I have to admit the beginning started off a bit slow, but boy did it pick up speed and action after the first few pages.

And coming to Loreth Anne White, she is an eloquent writer wielding a mighty pen or maybe her laptop, and a brilliant creative mind! She did a fabulous job with Pallorino and Maddocks. They may have different family dynamics and diverse personalities, but the common goal of justice gives them a purpose and the abundance of care gives them hope to do their jobs, protect the innocent and maybe manage a relationship amidst the crazies. The plot is captivating, enough twists to keep you guessing, and the secondary characters are the special condiments adding flavor to this thriller.

I shall definitely follow Pallorino and Maddocks, now that my curiosity is piqued with Angie’s mysterious past and how Loreth will develop Maddocks’s and Angie’s relationship.
