Here is another author I enjoy reading her books – Jeannie Moon. A writer/author with immense talent and creativity, penning charming romances that go straight to the hearts of the readers, her latest release, “You Send Me” is no less deserving of the readers’ praise.

YouSendMe-CompassCove#2-JeannieMoon-May2018

Jordan Velsor is going through a really rough patch in her life with a cheating fiancée and a wedding called off, a sick father, a storm that matches her life and now sick with pneumonia, and the icing on the cake of her tough times is to be taken care of the handsome and recuperating doctor on site!

Nick Rinaldi had his eyes on his beautiful and resilient neighbor for a while and taking care of her when sick seems to be the perfect opportunity to get close. Sparks fly, attraction flares as tragedy brings them closer and love blossoms. Yet Nick has ghosts of a past military career that need to be exonerated and may very well end their future before it even begins. But then Compass Cove has a different fate destined for these two wonderfully good-hearted people.

Let’s add a dog to the equation and “You Send Me” is another touching and warm love story of second chances, care and warmth of the residents, and the romantic legend of Compass Cove.

The latest in Cynthia Eden’s Killer Instinct Series, takes special agents Macey Night and Bowen Murphy “Into The Night” of the Smokey Mountains and into the mind of an organized, calculated and a patient serial killer, manipulating and taunting two agents with a past that is better left behind and forgotten.

IntoTheNight-KillerInstinct#3-CynthiaEden

As the so called “vigilante’ is creating a mayhem of brutal killings of serial killers, Bowen and Macey have a hard time keeping the boundaries between personal and professional feelings apart. As they get closer to the killer, secrets and clues seem to lead them to a path of betrayal and deception so very close to home. But then this is Cynthia Eden we are talking about and with her creative mind comes a twist to this thriller.

You want a dark and exciting romantic suspense read; Cynthia Eden is the go-to author. There is something so very passionate about her hero and heroine, each having being through unimaginable pain and trauma, and the treacherous mind of her villains is just pure reading pleasure!

Cynthia Eden is exemplary in that field and I just love her characters. She gives equal depth and layers to the good as well as the bad, to make her stories so very brilliant. The suspense keeps us captivated, the adrenaline is high to keep us on the edge of the seats and Tucker and Dawn are partner to cheat death to have a future.

“Into The Night” is another captivating thriller of scintillating mind games and the personal development of Bowen and Macey, as the supporting characters add depth and brilliance to the story

I love reading new authors and my first read of Nicole Helm, and is definitely a surprise.

“Cowboy Seal Homecoming” is a charming read of a prodigal son returning to his roots and starting fresh outside of his SEAL days. Alex Maguire returns home to with his SEAL buddies, to a home he’s ignored, to a life that he had refused to be a part of, and to a step- sister he hardly remembers.

Becca Denton had heard a lot about her stepfather’s son, and the reality of him being on the ranch that she considers her own is far more tempting than she had imagined. Her dream of turning the ranch into a haven for wounded vets is one of the things she and Alex share.

Mr. Organized meets Ms. Live-The-Life-That-Comes-At-You. As they get acclimated to the living arrangements working towards a common goal, they find the sparks of attraction as another common anomaly that takes them surprise.

With a good plot that keeps the readers interesting, Nicole Helm pens a charming story as Alex and Becca go through the path of getting to know each other, working side by side and the attraction that progresses into love, the secondary characters add charm, humor and family, “Cowboy Seal Homecoming” is a definite good read cozied up on a couch

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!!!!

MoonlightOverManhattan-FromManhattanWithLove#5-SarahMorgan-Nov2017

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.

The beauty of this love story lies in its simplicity deeply intertwined with the complexity of life. This is one of those very few stories where the main characters, Gabe Maguire and Adriana Hale have such intense chemistry that fills every word Melanie Shawn has penned!

When fate deals MMA fighter Gabe Maguire a left hook, he takes it in his stride with courage and patience, with support and care from his family, victorious and a champ. Now officially a firefighter, he wants to have his own HEA and family in Hope Falls, and destiny brings him face to face with Adriana Hale.

FireAndForeplay-HopeFalls#14-MelanieShawn-Oct2017

Mother of twins and guardian of a nine year old nephew, Adriana Hale at a young age of twenty six has her life mapped out around her little family. Circumstances and with the need to do the right thing, brings Adriana to the charming town of Hope Falls, warmth and Gabe, who may vey well be deeply connected to her family.

The grandeur of this romance lies in the expert narration by Melanie Shawn as Gabe and Adriana handle the normal complexities of life with patience, practical and reasonable and a healthy dose of attraction and love. With the presence of kids and their personal lives and feelings interlaced with that of the adults, I love the fact that their feelings were given precedence, yet not taking away the essence of adulthood, the complexities and the emotions.

“Fire And Foreplay” is a poignant read of two of the most beautiful people who deserve all the happiness in the world, for themselves and for their readymade family. Kudos to Melanie and Shawna as they keep the plot tight, the narration light and humorous, highlighting emotions and relationships and full of warmth and incredibly beautiful. In a world going so wrong, here is a lovely romance to make us feel hopeful and the belief that the good outweighs the bad.
