The Bridesmaid's Baby Bump by Kandy Shepherd

Reviewed by Helen

I was really looking forward to this one I have loved the first two books in this series and I was very much looking forward to seeing Eliza get her HEA and with none other than billionaire Jake Marlowe you see they were best man and bridesmaid at Andie and Dominic’s wedding and then again at Gemma and Tristian’s weddings and that spark that started with the first wedding grew with the second one and bought them together in the magical European castle such a fairy tale but there were still obstacles in their way so it took another 6 months before they were in contact again and wow.
Eliza is part of the Party Queens party planning company and loves her job she has been married and divorced and is one of the most independent and determined to do everything herself people there is she will not be told what to do and can be very stubborn about it. Eliza is not the sort of girl who is into affairs but she cannot deny the pull between her and Jake so when she decides to take a much needed four day break at Port Douglas Jake is the last person she expects to run into at the airport but that spark cannot be denied.
Jake Marlowe is a self- made billionaire gorgeous and caring but he also has secrets from his past and has just come through a divorce and with a rule book to guide him although another marriage and fatherhood is something that is not in his future, he decides it is time to get back to living and seeing as Eliza is someone he cannot forget the time is right for them to meet again where will this lead? Four wonderful sensual days together with consequences that neither of them thought could happen.
Truly this is one moving sensual emotional story that I did not want to put down MS Shepherd knows how to write a story that will pull you in and have you turning those pages. The setting is fabulous and that glimmer that has been glowing between Jake and Eliza for some time now explodes with emotions that will see stubbornness and determination and then the pure joy of opening up and realizing that they are very much in love with a baby on the way. Thank you MS Shepherd for another fabulous story.

Wedding Date With The Army Doc (Harlequin Medical Romance) by Lynne Marshall

Reviewed by Helen

This is such a good story moving and emotional as MS Marshall Takes on a subject that can be controversial and she has done this so well truly this is a story that had me turning the pages.

We meet Pathologist Charlotte Johnson she is very pretty she is a caring and hard working person she is also single and aims to stay that way after her fiancĂ© walked out on her after she had an operation that she had thought a lot about and decided that it was the best thing to save her life but it is also a major life changing operation but Charlotte is positive, you see she lost her Mum when she was young to breast cancer and that pushed her into the job that she loves and her decision. But when she meets Dr Jackson Hilstead Charlotte’s life is about to change and in such a beautiful way.

Dr Jackson Hilstead has moved to California left everything behind in Charlestown to start a new life divorced and getting over PTSD after being badly injured in Afghanistan Jackson has a prosthesis and the couple of woman he has gotten close to since moving shy away and with two sons already children and marriage is not what he wants but he is drawn to the beautiful pathologist Charlotte this could be what he needs to bring out the best in him again and make him happy.

This really is a must read story it is beautifully written the caring and loving Charlotte and Jackson are so drawn to each other but with scares from their past it takes a bit of time for them to take the plunge to find true love. Charlotte’s decision to have the surgery is handled so well I shed some tears but was smiling throughout this one, the scenery is fabulous as well. I highly recommend this story I loved it. It is part of a small series Sumer Brides but can be read as a standalone but I am looking forward to the other one in this series.

Another fabulous story by MS West this one a Beauty and The Beast story with the hero being the beauty Italian Raffaele Petri pulled himself of the streets of Italy and out of poverty with his looks and he does not speak of his past but when he becomes a model and then moves on and makes a name for himself then in business he is a quiet man but he never stops looking for someone and revenge is what he wants for a wrong that was done years before.

Lily Nolan was badly scared when she was young and keeps to herself she is a researcher and very good at what she does but when one of her clients rings her during the night and practically demands that she pack up in Australia and comes to New York to work exclusively for him she is stunned but in the end decides to do this it is hard for Lily to travel that far and be in contact with people but she is strong and when she meets Raffaele he does not shy away like most people do and there is a spark that shoots between them will this be the change that the innocent Lily needs to get on with her life?

This is one emotional moving and very sensual story one that I found very hard to put down both Raffa and Lily have a lot in their past that they need to come to terms with and Lily shows such strength when she stands up to Raffa and her first kiss will have you sighing it was so lovely. Of course their journey to a HEA is filled with ups and downs denials and realizations. This is a story that you keep you turning the pages it has everything that a romance needs to keep you smiling I loved this one and can highly recommend it, it was a joy to read pulling at my heartstrings with emotion and love thank you MS West for another must read.

I am loving this series and this one is a beauty how do you tame one of Hollywood's top stars especially since you have known him forever and there is a secret that is very embarrassing to say the least between you but when Liam Carter needs help with a badly sprained ankle he also needs the help of his best friend's sister Grace Watson who is a physical therapist at The Hollywood Hills Clinic. Get ready for a fabulous rocky road to the ultimate HEA.

Grace works hard at her job in the clinic that has some of the top Hollywood actors as patients and the last time she saw Liam Carter was a long time ago and in a very embarrassing situation a lot has happened to Grace since then but she has never forgotten Liam and now here he is needing help that will put them together closely for a few days will this open up her feelings that she has kept under control for so long how is the strong Grace going to cope?

Liam Carter has worked hard to get to where he is today after the life he had growing up it has left him a little scared and so sure he is not the picket fence kind of guy no marriage or relationships for Liam hard work and fun. But when he meets up with Grace again the feelings and emotions he thought buried have come to the surface she pulled at his heart years ago and it seems she still can with her caring and kind ways can she get him to see the truth?

I highly recommend this one it is sensual moving and was a joy to read it had me turning the pages and smiling as the banter between them is so good they have a lot to open up about including that trench coat I won't say anymore other than to say this is a must read.

Di Sione's Innocent Conquest by Carol Marinelli

I do love a good mini series and this is book one in The Billionaire's Legacy and it starts with an emotional sensual all round fabulous story this one is going to keep you turning the pages.

Matteo Di Sione is the youngest of the Di Sione children who were bought up by their grandfather Giovanni after the tragic deaths of their parents Matteo was only five years old at the time and was pretty much left to fend for himself never understanding why so he has grown into a strong independent wealthy business man who is determined to stay single he leads a wild and sometimes dangerous life but he does care. When Matteo is summoned to his grandfather's residence the news is not good and Giovanni asks Matteo to reclaim something that means a lot to him one of his "Lost Mistresses" this brings Matteo in contact with the beautiful and defiant Abby Ellison and this will change Matteo's life in such a good way.

Abby Ellison is a thorn in her father's side instead of being the lady of fashion she is an engineer and runs a car racing team one that is struggling badly she lost her mother when she was young and her older sister is the apple of her hard father's eye but Abby is out spoken and determined to live her life the way she wants and although very innocent things have happened to Abby to help make her this way her father has offered to help the team on one condition and Abby is not giving in to him although when she meets Matteo things are going to change.

There is such a spark when Matteo and Abby meet but there is also so much in their way to see straight away what they mean to each other. This really is a face paced sensual sizzling emotional beautiful story that will pull at your heart strings it will bring you to tears but also have you smiling the banter between Matteo and Abby is fabulous. I highly recommend this one it is moving and so very sensual as Matteo and Abby journey such a an emotional path to an awesome HEA. I do look forward to the next one in this series.

A PREGNANCY SCANDAL by Kat Cantrell

Reviewed by: Amanda

A Pregnancy Scandal, second book in the Love & Lipstick series by Kat Cantrell is a sexy, angsty and well written story! I anticipated this book after reading the first novel in the series debut and I must say I am not disappointed at all. Ms. Cantrell layered her story so well that the settings, back stories, dialogues and vivid prose created a dazzling, edgy concoction. More so, her characters were flawed, flashy and uptight in a likable way. And as the title suggests, the unplanned pregnancy added extra drama to an already dramatic plot. I enjoyed reading this book due to the fact that Ms. Cantrell gives her characters enough room to grow and evolve. Phillip garnered my vote when he grows to accept and love Alexandra. I rooted for Alexandra from the beginning as she deals with her insecurities and learns to let go of her haunting past. And having Phillip finally accepting her as she is makes her growth as a character stronger. Surely, this is one story I’d recommend to readers. And though this is a common theme used in the Desire line, the author pulled off all the stops by adding her unique touch and making the story her own. So that is something worth the read.
