Another charming new series by Sarah Morgan, “From Manhattan With Love” takes the readers on a carriage ride of romance in the city of New York, as three friends try to make a life in the Big Apple, pulsing with energy and dreams.

SleeplessInManhattan-ManhattanSeries#1-SarahMorgan

First in the series, “Sleepless In Manhattan” sure gives Paige Walker sleepless nights as she loses her current job in a New York minute! But not one to lay still, an organizer and a go-getter, Paige decides to start her own event planner business with her two friends. Then again having lived a young life of in and out of hospitals, insecurities and fears always shadow her. And here comes the hero Jake Roman0, childhood friend, crush and her brother’s best friend, motivating her, disarming her and riling her to get her dream fulfilled.

Self made billionaire, Jake Romano has overcome childhood abandonment, raised by a loving adopted mother, and he’d worked hard to get to the pinnacle of his success. Supportive and caring of his friends, Paige is his beating heart and he would do anything to keep her protected and help with her success.

As the flare of passion between them reaches fruition, so does Sarah Morgan’s penning of Paige and Jake’s love story. Full of wit and humor, quirks and fears, insecurities and determination, Sarah portrays it all in full glory. Rich with emotions, strong in friendship and passionate in its romance, “Sleepless In Manhattan” is an ultra charming start to the series.

Sarah Morgan kicks off her new Puffin Island Series with “First Time In Forever” set in the beautiful locales of Maine. And the story is classy in its simplicity, painful in its past turmoil, passionate in its new explorations and just purely beautiful in its narration.

Emily escapes to Puffin Island along with her niece Juliet Fox (Lizzie), when she’s given the mantle of guardianship after her stepsister dies in an accident. City bred, fighting past fears of guilt and death, Emily is placed on a precarious precipice of taking care of a little girl she has never met before. Shutting herself off to love and with the support of her two best friends Brittany and Skylar, Emily is hiding on Puffin Island, trying to protect her niece from the paparazzi and learn how to be a parent.

Pulitzer award winner Ryan comes home to Puffin Island, leaving behind the gory days of maritime reporting and the glory days of being a famous world-class journalist. Raising toddler siblings after his parents’ death, he knows very well the responsibilities of parenting and the many fears that come with those responsibilities and truly understands the fears that Emily is facing. Meeting with Emily brings to the surface what Ryan’s been missing in his life and wants to take Emily into his folds of love and protection.

Sarah Morgan weaves a really emotional story of love and support, fears and insecurities, warmth and protection that Puffin Island gives freely to its residents. The insightful conversations between Ryan and his Grandmother are beautifully placed as him romancing and helping Emily face her fears. Emily is one beaten but courageous aunt wanting to protect her niece from all the bad in the world, even if she has to overcome her past fears.

Sarah’s narration is brilliant and you can’t but help inexplicably be drawn into the lives of Ryan and Emily. The flow of the story is smooth as silk, and the introduction of characters at various strategic curves in the story is perfect. Laced with wit, filled with pain, supported with unconditional love and with a hint of more romance walking the beaches of Puffin Island, “First Time In Forever” fills you with hope and faith that good exists with the bad, relationships can be built through hearts, and love and support does exist on unconditionally.

I’ve always liked Sarah Morgan and her sweet romantic stories. They are charming as the fuzzies of romance, deep with emotions and intensity and characters that take you on a roller coaster ride of laughter and tears.

Lily Rose believes in love to the very end of her soul. Despite being an orphan and tossed around, despite being bitten and betrayed, despite being a sick and unwanted child, she believes in fairy tale love and happy endings. Archeologist by daytime and moon-lighting as a cleaner to pay her student loans, she is one heck of a sweet, lovable, positive person, who cannot keep from talking nineteen to the dozen if her life depended on it…. and is all alone!

PlayingByTheGreekRules-Jan2015

Enters Nik Zervakis, her infamous Greek playboy/billionaire employer and their first time encounter is wet and hot! Nik Zervakis is anti-family, anti-emotions, anti-love, and runs in the opposite direction of any woman who sheds a tear. But Lily stops him in his tracks and he agrees to be her rebound sex toy and teach her how to wear Kevlar vest to ward off emotions, love and pain.

An agreement of just sex takes Nik and Lily on a journey of turbulent emotions as both try to get over a painful past and belong with each other. Nik fights hard not to fall in love, and Lily is just looking to become someone’s favorite person, for a lifetime. Rules get thrown out the window and the heart rules this game of love.

“Playing By The Greek’s Rules” is a charismatic story of rib tickling dialogues, of empathy and support and getting past barriers for a future together. There were sections of Lily’s past that tears you up, yet keeps a smile on the lips with her enthusiasm and zest for life.

And hello Puffin Island – here we come!!!!

A wonderful start to her new “Puffin Island Series”

Received an ARC from Harlequin vi NetGalley for an honest review.

Christmas’s always been a magical time of the year. It is perhaps the only time that people actually follow their natural impulses and express their true feelings and sentiments. With a smile on lips, and a heart open to the people we care, Christmas is possibly, the one time a guy can be himself, without being silly or self-conscious.

And maybe, just “Maybe This Christmas”, Tyler O’Neil can finally confess to himself and to Brenna Daniels, of his feelings he has for her, and had for the longest of time. From being a pro skier competing with the slopes and speed of destiny to becoming a Father to his teenage daughter Jess, Tyler has gone through years of pain, torment and anguish for what he had lost and what had become of his life. But with Jess in his life, he now has a purpose to reform and be a permanent Dad and a role model for his daughter. And when he is sure of something and wants it, he goes for it with an explosion of passion and commitment.

MaybeThisChristmas-ONeils3-SarahMorgan-Oct2014

Brenna Daniels literally grew up with the O’Neil’s since a kid and has loved Tyler that long. His name is carved into her heart; she accepts it with certainty as she accepts the fact that Tyler will always see her as his life-long friend and confidante, and nothing more. What is Christmas without some helpful and meddling elves, and Brenna and Tyler end up under one roof, much to the delight of the little imp Jess! And the sparks are being stoked…

From her first book in the O’Neil Brothers series, “Sleigh Bells In the Snow” (Jackson/Kayla), to her second “Suddenly Last Summer” (Sean/Elise) to her third, “Maybe This Christmas”, Sarah Morgan has grown by leaps and bounds with her writing. Not that she isn’t a good writer to begin with; it was different with this series. When I read her first book, I felt that she was holding something back, and with her second book; there was an openness and brevity in her expression. But the third is her best and my personal favorite, with her complete lack of inhibition in expressing feelings and dialogue for Tyler and Brenna.

Sarah Morgan does a tremendous job of creating a perfectly imperfect relationship with his daughter (hilarious and reminds me of the time my 12 yr. old asked her Dad what kind of flavored condoms he had used!!!!) as he tests the feelings between Brenna and him. I felt her heart and soul in every word she wrote! Both Tyler and Brenna are complex characters, but Sarah does a brilliant job of drawing out their emotions in equal parts. Clothed in layers of insecurity and uncertainty, tremors of rocking a solid friendship, Tyler and Brenna try to stay clear of those embers of passion and love, before it becomes a raging fire.

But it’s the season of magic and mistletoes, hot chocolate and twinkling lights, meddling family and support, love and laughter; all gearing up for the biggest wedding on the slopes of Snow Crystal Chalet.

Received an ARC from the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.

My first introduction to Sarah Morgan and her books was “Sleigh Bells In The Snow”, book one in her “O’Neil Brother” Series. I instantly fell in love with Snow Crystal Resort, Vermont, Gramps and Grams and Elizabeth and of course Jackson and Kayla.

Her second book “Suddenly Last Summer” brings Jackson’s twin, Sean O’Neil from Boston to his roots and heritage in Vermont and to one fiery French chef Elise Philippe. Dedicated and renowned orthopedic surgeon, Sean O’Neil is pulled back to his home when his Gramps suffers a stroke and comes face to face with pain and hurt that drove him away from his family. He and his grandfather have been at loggers end for a couple of years now and stubborn as they are, just refuse to defuse the situation.

ImageIf that is not enough to make him feel unwanted, he has to deal with his one summer night erotic fling Elise! Simmering heat on both ends, Sean and Elise try to ignore their feelings for each other and end up getting into each other. Sleepless nights of lust and passion, hot days of denials and insecurities, “Suddenly Last Summer” is an emotional roller coaster of a ride for all involved, even as a lot of questions find their answers.

I couldn’t help falling in love with Sean and Elise. Sarah Morgan has done a brilliant job of modeling two characters, worlds apart yet so perfect for each other. Elise is a firecracker, who helps Sean understand his pain, value of a family and helps put a closer to his suffering and guilt. Sean is the lovable doctor, tender and patient as he stands in support of Elise as she tries to come to terms with her painful past and loss.

Sarah did a fantastic job of penning so much emotion and love in her story, that it catches you unawares. There were incidents in the book that had me feeling sad and lonely, loved and cherished, hot and erotic, unconditional support and trust, and the O’Neil family, always comes together to protect their own, no matter what. It is a lesson in learning what families mean, and that it’s just not blood that ties, but relationships can be made from the heart.

The O’Neil’s leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling and Snow Crystal Resort, a haven of family, love and protection.
