ALASKAN HIDEAWAY by Beth Carpenter!

 Alaskan Hideaway (Northern Lights, #3)Alaskan Hideaway by Beth Carpenter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alaskan Hideaway is the third book in the Northern Lights series by Beth Carpenter. In this book Beth takes on an emotional story of two people who are in need of a second chance. The many depths of emotions that you will read as you are reading through Ursula and Mac's story will keep you emotionally in tune with the store. I thoroughly enjoyed it just as well as I have the rest of Beth's work I have read.

He traveled 3,800 miles to be alone

…but is it what he really wants?

Relocating to Alaska after a family tragedy seemed an ideal way for author R.D. “Mac” Macleod to grieve in peace. But solitude feels overrated when Mac’s around B&B owner Ursula Anderson and her orphaned goddaughter, Rory, who’s already bonding with his dog. Worse, he’s imagining a future with Ursula and Rory. Is it time to finally forgive himself?

Review: Colton Baby Rescue

Colton Baby Rescue Colton Baby Rescue by Marie Ferrarella
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Colton Baby Rescue is the first book in the Colton's of Red Ridge Harlequin Romantic Suspense mini series. In this new series you enter a feud much like the Hatfield and McCoys but you have the Colton's and the Gage's. These feuding families are like walking through a mine field together. Oil and water they can't seem to understand that this all began so long ago that neither of them can even remember what is important.

This book starts off intense with a dead body almost immediately. You have continuous twist and turns trying to find out who killed one of the Gage men as well as trying to find out who wants to kidnap a Colton baby. This was an excellent start to the series.

Review: Armed Response

Armed Response Armed Response by Janie Crouch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Armed Response is the 5th book in the Omega Sector: Under Siege by Janie Crouch. I have absolutely adored this series. The constant pursuit of Damien Freihof has been a thrill! I can't wait till the final book in the series because I know he will be nailed to the wall. In this story you have a second chance romance with Jace and Lillian. The history between the two is almost too complicated to overcome. Janie managed to write this so well that I could see the forgiveness as I was reading it. So this is yet another marvelous read by Janie Crouch!

Anything For Love

Anything for Love (The Bradens & Montgomerys [Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls], #2)Anything for Love by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anything For Love is the second book in The Bradens and Montgomerys Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls series by Melissa Foster. I love Charlotte and Beau they are so sweet and amazing. I loved Charlotte when I first met her. Charlotte is a writer and owner of an Inn who specializes in events. Beau is a man with a hard past. Beau is closed off in more ways than one.

Watching Beau come out of his shell and dragging Charlotte out of the Inn to see other parts of the world around her is amazing. The spell they wrap around each other is astonishing. I can not wait to see what else this series has in store.

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa] NEW RELEASE........
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

In Anything For Love.... After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family's Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can't live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she's intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he's never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn't count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They've never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

More of the Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls 
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross. 

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed's new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace's sister Morgyn's business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn't ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

Review: Sinful Empire

Sinful Empire Sinful Empire by Meghan March
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sinful Empire is the third and final installment in the mount trilogy by Meghan March. I must say I LOVED it. This trilogy does need to be read in order but is also part of bigger series Call the Beneath Series. It ties in with certain parts. You will see all sides to certain scenes so therefore you need to read them all to get the full perspective. I am okay with this as I LOVE and ADORE her work.

Mount and Keira are two characters that amaze me. The out of this world chemistry and feelings will take you to a whole new world you never knew you could be okay with. I absolutely could not wait to finish this trilogy just as I can't wait to continue forward with the rest of Meghans work.

Review: Braving the Heat

Braving the Heat Braving the Heat by Regan Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Braving The Heat by Regan Black is on fire. As part of the Escape Club series we get to see and visit with some of our previous friends. I love the way that the Escape Club always takes care of each other. Braving The Heat can be read as a standalone but I have loved every book in the series and suggest you check them out as well.

Stephen and Kenzie go hand in hand together. They complete each other and play off each others strength and weakness to well. The protective Stephen is so sweet and caring. The way he constantly goes out of his way as soon as he meets Kenzie is mind blowing. She is as independent as they come and relying on others is extremely hard for her.
