There’s something very addictive and seductive about Susan Stoker’s various series of courageous and brave soldiers, their fight for justice and the fierce protectiveness for their loved ones.


“Claiming Bailey” book three in the Ace Security Series is another exemplary work of Susan Stoker’s creative writing as she brings the nerdy Nathan Anderson in search of elusive Bailey Hampton hiding with her brother from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Keeping a low profile working as a mechanic, when fate brings her to Nathan, there’s no denying the chemistry, the protective shield and the safe have of Nathan Anderson and his brothers.

“Claiming Bailey” is a courageous and wonderful story of two beautiful people fighting to claim a future together. Nathan is an absolute kind and patient guy with Bailey and her young brother. He may not don the battle fatigues, but his fight for justice with his mad computer skills and equally amazing mind are his battling skills that help him keep Bailey safe.

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!!!

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.


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.

If I thought “From Manhattan With Love”, was a fabulous love story of Felicity Knight and Seth Carlyle, wait until you read her twin sister, Harriet Knight’s walk into the sunset with her doctor Ethan Black…it’s just stunning!!!!


Sarah Morgan’s latest and up coming, “Moonlight Over Manhattan” is just as magical and mystical as the festive Christmas time in the Big Apple. The kindest, the sweetest, and the shy Harriet Knight wants to go through the “Challenge Harriet” and go beyond her comfort zone, a challenge that lands her in the ER and to the existence of ER doctor Ethan Black.

Circumstances and a dog bring Harriet and Ethan under one roof, long conversations and dog training brings them close, and the attraction and lust brings them under the same covers. But the beauty of this love story is in the conversations, the brilliant chemistry between Ethan and Harriet, the emotional and kind interactions between Harriet and her world of people, and the courage and empathy of making new friends as Ethan and Harriet navigate the delicate lanes of love and relationship.

“Moonlight Over Manhattan” is a must read to savor the magic of romance, the mysteries of relationship, the spectrum of fears and insecurities, and the support of friendship and family. Words and reviews don’t do justice, and make sure every word is read to enjoy this beautiful love story.

Lindsay McKenna is one of the best military romance writers that I’ve come across and some of her books are immensely memorable and have revisited numerous times. Along with badass soldiers, she also writes some great badass cowboy stories.


Book 4 in the Wind River Valley series, gives us another glimpse into the life of army veterans, their service and courage, survival and betrayal, and the acclimating into the norm of everyday life. “Wrangler’s Challenge” is another such story of marine veteran Dair Wilson as she comes into the fold of Bar C Ranch, to start fresh.

Having lost her leg to an IED, Dair is so much more comfortable with the four-legged animals than the humans. There is still a black void in her mind as to the events that had taken away her team and her leg. And as the author say, “Healing like love, takes time”.

Noah Mabry is the animal whisperer of the Bar C Ranch and with Dair assisting him everyday, it’s inevitable for the attraction to reach the point of love. With the utmost patience and compassion, Noah guides Dair through her dark moments and when her life is threatened by a past that impaired her, he’ll lay his life down for Dair.

This was one emotional story of despair and trauma, support, compassion and empathy that gives these brave vets hope and faith that all is not lost in their fight to survive after war. This story is a testimony to the fact that there are people out there who care about others and who are willing to give unconditionally.

As always, Lindsay McKenna does another great job at a story filled with warmth, support, compassion, courage and love.

The final book in the “Blood Brothers” series, “Twisted Truths” brings and end to the deadly and twisted mind of a psychopath doctor hell-bent on creating super soldiers and the beginning of a new life for Denver Jones and the start of a new era for his Blood Brothers, a future as normal as can be with family.


In desperate need of Denver’s help to find her kidnapped niece, Noni puts an almost BOLO on the internet trying to reach Denver, an act that literally puts her and Denver in the crosshairs of the evil doctor who wants Denver back at any cost. With Noni getting into his dangerous life on the run, Denver has no choice but protect her at any cost, and also bring her niece Talia safe and sound.

With bullets flying, guns blazing, and the “Twisted Truths” of his creation and parentage dogging them, Denver and Noni fight for their life as well as for the families they care about. Even as they dodge the explosions and the bullets, the adrenaline of attraction and lust never seems to be far for Noni and Denver.

Rebecca Zanetti gives a fitting end to the Blood Brother Series, as she brings the Sin Brothers into the fold supporting Denver, Heath and Logan and the ever supporting cop, risking their lives to protect justice and the innocent. It’s a fascinating read of power and control, the many facets of high-level intelligence and the dreams of an evil woman wanting the ultimate power. A very fast faced and action packed story, Rebecca Zanetti is a superior creator of some amazing stories!
