The Gallaghers of Montana have fallen and fallen hard and now it is time for the missing Gallagher sister to return to the safety of her brothers and family.

ReturnOfTheCowgirl-EveGaddy-Aug2017

Glenna Gallagher doesn’t remember her past or her name for that matter. With an unexplained urge to protect herself and fly under the radar, she moves from town to town doing, never really understanding what’s she’s running from or who she’s hiding from until private investigator Mitch Hardeman catches up with her.

Hired by her brothers to bring Glenna home, Mitch Hardeman has his job cut out with Glenna’s amnesia and gaining her trust to take her back to Marietta to her family. With danger lurking in the shadows and her memories coming in bits and pieces, Mitch’s protective instincts come on full blast, and as they navigate home, so does his attraction to Glenna.

“Return Of The Cowgirl” is one of the coolest books I’ve read. A simple story of a sister gone missing and the tenacity of her family to bring her home; no matter what continent she’s been living. With a hint of mystery and no histrionics whatsoever, this is a wonderful story of a woman trying to come to terms with her past and future and of a gentleman willing to go to any lengths to protect and cherish her.

Eve Gaddy does a great job with developing the relationship between Glenna and Mitch as well as the delicate and sensitive relationship with her brothers. I’ve come to love Eve Gaddy and her wonderful love stories full of charm and charisma, and her Whiskey River Series will always remain as one of my favorites of her works.

I’ve always been intrigued and fascinated with psychic abilities, the trials and tribulations of being accepted and judged, honing those abilities for the better and trying to live a normal life amidst the abnormal, and “Extrasensory” definitely falls into this category.

Extrasensory-PhoenixAgency#2-DesireeHolt-Aug2017

The mysterious Phoenix Agency is as mysterious and intriguing as the amazing soldiers who founded it. As the CEO, Dan Romeo has seen things unexplainable as the wide-open skies with its many mysteries. In town to help his friend Chase Carpenters with his company any new invention, Dan runs into Mia as the person of interest sending warnings of threat on the company.

With precognitive abilities, all Mia Fleming wants to do is enjoy her job as an art historian and lose herself in her passion. But with visions of danger and numbers, of Dan and his erotic presence, Mia is drawn into a deadly game of danger and death. Sparks fly, passion flares and with the body count raising and Mia nearly at the jaws of death, Dan and his team have their job cut out to save the world from being destroyed.

It’s been a while since I’ve read Desiree Holt and it was a reading pleasure. Mia and Dan rock the chemistry charts, with an intriguing plot and captivating suspense, “Extrasensory” is an adrenaline read of danger, trust and a courageous story of the psychic powers.

Rachel Lacey is coming out with a brand new series, “Stranded”, with “Crash And Burn” leading the series as Isa Delgado and Nate Peters are stranded in the wilderness with danger and flames chasing them.

CrashAndBurn-Stranded#1-RacheclLacey-Sept2017

Working as a volunteer, Isa Delgado agrees to kill two birds with one stone; accompany a dog to its adopted home and get over her fear of flying. Silicon Valley billionaire Nate Peters volunteers his time and jet for animal rescue missions and having Isa, as his co-traveller is an added perk. But then as fate has it and Isa’s worst nightmare come true, her first flight ends in a crash in the wilderness as forest fires rage around them, and it becomes a race against time as to who is going to win the fiery battle.

A different path for Rachel Lacey from her contemporary romances, “Crash And Burn” sure brings out her creative side as she explores the wilderness romance, survival and developing a relationship between Isa and Nate with no supporting characters or sub-plots. She sure does a good job and if you’ve read her previous books, you’ll definitely relate to the change in her writing and narration, and she keeps it interesting and captivating.

“Crash And Burn” comes out on September 15, 2017

My introduction to Melanie Scott was “Devil In Denim” followed by “Angel In Armani” and by the time I got to “Lawless In Leather”, I was literally stitched, tied and sewed with her stunning stories and humorous writings!!!

Following the New York Saints owned by the said Devil, Angel and Lawless alpha males, comes “Playing Hard” as the romance and love transcends from the owners to the players on the field. Melanie Scott and her titles just conjure images of passion and danger, love and lust, sassy and kick-ass heroines and sexy and alpha heroes.

PlayingHard-MelanieScott-Feb2016

Oliver Shields breathes and lives baseball and with the team making the play-offs for the first time ever, he can feel his dream being fulfilled a little closer. But then fate steps in the form of an accident removing him from the play-offs and maybe baseball itself. And destiny brings him face to face with Amelia Graham and he is at the cross roads of his future.

Coveting a hot shot job on Wall Street, Amelia Graham is successful, independent and fulfilling life, far away from her painful past. Friendly ties lands her in the middle of the successful and sexy baseball players, and her attraction to Oliver give her hope for a relationship and love that she wants more than anything.

Two different people bound by love, a romance hinging on friendships being severed, and a future that can be torn apart by distance, Oliver and Amelia have a lot to fight for with the support of their family and friends. And the constant presence of Alex and Maggie, Sara and Lucas and Mal and Raina only add spice making Playing Hard” hard to resist and not fall in love with her Melanie’s characters even more so.

Melanie Scott, her titles and her stories conjure images of passion and danger, love and lust, sassy kick-ass heroines and sexy alpha heroes and loads of wit and humor. Another wonderful, heartwarming and emotional love story from Melanie Scott…love her books!!!!!

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!
