Elena Aitken is a classy writer. I’ve read a handful of her books and enjoyed them immensely. And it’s wonderful reading her again, as she starts a new series with “The McCormicks”.

LoveInTheMoment-McCormicks#1-ElenaAitken-May2017

“Love In The Moment” is what Gwen Henderson is aiming for. A total makeover and personal transformation lands Gwen in a successful blogging career, yet where the matters of the heart are concerned, isn’t everyone scared and insecure. Coming back home to Cedar Springs is bittersweet for Gwen, a past filled with unhappy memories and a person who refuses to leave her heart.

Ian McCormick is back home permanently to plant roots and start his own business in Cedar Springs. With family drama that can give the soap operas a run for their money, he can’t seem to leave them behind. And now with his stepsister coming to stay with him, and the presence of Gwen making his heart skip beats, Ian has his hands full.

As Gwen and Ian act on their attraction, living in the moment and caught up in their “Love In The Moment”, it takes only a slip of a tongue for Gwen’s secret to fall open, and hearts to fall apart. But love finds a way; trust forms a relationship and hope ignites for a future of happiness.

A well written and classy story of just not love, but of overcoming insecurities and fears, motivation and will power to works towards the positives in life, and keeping your heart open for love and friendship to find a home. Ian and Gwen are deserving of each other, and Elena Aitken gives her readers another charming love story.

I adore reading series featuring siblings, matchmaking elders, and families going through rough times despite being billionaires just showing that they are human as well. A new series by Ruth Cardello, “The Westerly Billionaires” are here to entice us, charm us and warm themselves into the readers’ hearts.

InTheHeir-WesterlyBillionaires#1-RuthCardello-May2017

Heiring the series, Brett Westerly, being “In The Heir” to the Westerly Corporation, along with the corporation comes a legacy of split families and divided loyalties, creating friction among the siblings. But a new twist by the family matriarch throws Brett Westerly into a loop with Alisha Coventry, the supposed fiancé of his brother.

All Alisha Coventry wanted was to help a friend get his inheritance and help his family who has been like the family she never had. Never in her wildest dreams did she ever think of being attracted to her supposed fiancé’s older brother. Yet circumstances break the fake engagement leaving her vulnerable to pain and heartache and also for Brett to woe her and what can be better than a cruise to get the love of his life.

A great start to the series, Brett is the quintessential billionaire, having lost a lot and trying to bridge the gap with his siblings, the peacemaker and the golden child to run the legacy, his character so very lovable, humble and humanly relatable. And his perfect complement, Alisha is the most loving and kind person you can come across, her desire to help friends, honest and open minded, one of the best characters that Ruth Cardello created and these two just make a stunning couple.

Great start to a series, “In The Heir” is a wonderfully charming story of family dynamics, love and forgiveness, and looking forward to the next sibling to get hitched. And the cover is gorgeous!!!!!

ClaimingColton-WishingWell#5-Apr2017

Wishing Well, Texas is deserving of its name, as couples seem to be finding their wishes coming true, and finding their HEAs. And Wishing Well’s regular cowboy Colton McCord is riding the celebrity high. A high that he doesn’t seem to enjoy, as the love of his life is not with him, and a situation that’s going to change now as Bella Connor makes an appearance at his sister’s wedding leaving him gasping for breath.

Returning to Wishing Well to settle her grandfather’s things brings bittersweet memories to Bella Connor, and the handsome cowboy still leaves her breathless as ever. Circumstances place Bella in close proximity to Colton’s reality TV show, and old sparks ignite into flammable passion. Things seem to fall into place, but Bella and Colton need to put their painful history to rest to give their love a new lease of life.

As always, another love story from Melanie Shawn “Claiming Colton” is a sweet ride of a love story, heartfelt, content and just pure gratification!

TamingTravis-WishingWell#4-MelanieShawn-Mar2017

Wishing Well, Texas is deserving of its name, as couples seem to be finding their wishes coming true, and finding their HEAs. And Wishing Well’s wild playboy Travis Briggs is no exception. He’s more than happy to be Mia James fake boyfriend and have that become a reality forever.

Mia James seems to have finally found her calling in directing her first reality show, a far cry from her law career. But with her ex stepping in with his pregnant lady, Mia needs to find a hot guy as her fake boyfriend and Travis fits the frame to a T!

With a no strings attached relationship, both Mia and Travis are in for the ride of their lifetime. With pockets of friends and family making their presences felt, this is a wonderful story to enjoy. Seamless as ever, you can never tell where Melanie ends and Shawna begins her story. These sisters have mastered the art of co-writing to a level that is beyond description.
