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.

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. And a town that Avery Adams is dreaming of making it a home and fill it with adventures as fate gives her a second chance at life.

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”!

I love reading a series! And Sarah Morgan writes some really, really warm romances that gets to the heart and bring smiles as the hero and heroine find their happily ever after.

Her “From Manhattan, With Love” series is one of those very warm romances set in one of the most romantic cities, New York. Book two of the series; “Sunset In Central Park” is the love story of Matt Walker and Frankie Cole. Both have feelings for each since eternity but have been dancing around each other forever!

Matt Walker always thought he knew everything about Frankie. But finding out that she’s hiding from the world behind glasses is a revelation itself that sets the ball rolling in wooing Frankie and helping her through her fears and uncertainties. He may be a successful businessman, when it comes to the matters of the heart, Frankie scares him but he is one determined man in love to protect and to cherish.

A broken home and a wandering butterfly of a mother did a number on Frankie Cole. She may be successful with her friends in business, a master at Kung Fu, but when it comes to showing any emotions, she hides behind fake eyeglasses, t-shirts and jeans. Her work is her refuge and sanity, but lately with Matt discovering her vulnerabilities, she finally may be brave to test the feelings she had for Matt for the longest time.

Frankie, as an amazing woman with her kindness and support and Matt as the patient and protective lover, make “Sunset In Central Park” one of the most beautiful love stories to read. And the credit goes to Sarah Morgan to for her writing prowess, creating two amazing characters in Matt and Frankie, the chemistry among the friends and the unconditional support and care for each other, just creates a beautiful story to enjoy to our heart’s content.

Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visiting several times. Her new series “The Most Likely To Series” stars three childhood friends and their lives, as life takes them on different paths, and yet they all come to a crossroads where they converge and support each other through the touch times. Sometimes, friends are all the family we need, as Bybee says.

Book two of the series; “Staying For Good” brings Zoe back to Riverbend for her best friend’s wedding, and to Luke. For a person who was voted as most likely not to leave Riverbend, she has not only left Riverbend, but also made a name for herself as a famous chef. Yet coming back brings back bad as well as good memories and getting close to Luke hopefully will outweigh the bad.

Luke’s life is in Riverbend, as a mechanic running his Dad’s workshop and content with his life until Zoe returns and everything seems to zap with energy, chemistry, lust and passion. But with Zoe’s family history and a load of fears and insecurities marring their relationship, Luke is willing to follow Zoe to the ends of the earth.

Another story by Catherine Bybee with love and passion, the evolutions of Zoe from an abused teenager to a woman of success, strength and courage, her past not shadowing her ability to be kind, generous and a good friend, “Staying For Good”, is a brilliant read.

Another charming and captivating read from the effervescent Catherine Bybee!!!
