The Doctor She Always Dreamed Of by Wendy S. Marcus

Reviewed by Helen

Well I fell into this one and didn't want to put it down till I got to the amazing HEA at the end, this one is beautifully written and the characters are so real they come to life on the pages and truly you will not want to stop turning those pages.

Kira Peniglatt is hard working and very responsible always sensible, she has a very busy job working for a health care company she is a nurse and cares for her ill mother and for Kira family looks after family always she has no time for a real life or commitment or a HEA for herself no way the couple of relationships she has had have failed as soon as they realise her Mum will always come first but after a very busy and stressful day at work Kira goes out with her best friend for a few drinks never thinking that this evening will bring her in contact with maybe the best hero ever who will change her life.

Dr Derrick Limone is working hard to get his family practice up and going he comes from a loving family and with his mother recovering from a stoke and his father caring for her and the health insurance company not doing what they should Derrick needs to step in and when he follows the woman he needs to see about aids for his Mum and ends up in a bar and meeting Kira and then taking her home well this is going to be life changing for Derrick as well.

The dialogue between Kira and Derrick is amazing you will be laughing as these two people get to know each other and sighing as their sizzling sensual affair makes them both want more. Derrick is such a caring funny guy just the sort of person Kira needs to make her smile again and help her realize that she can get help with things when she needs to . I really loved this one from start to finish I was smiling and I highly recommend grabbing this one and sitting back and enjoying you will be glad you did and yay it is part of a series so I have another one too look forward to Kira's sister Krissy the wild child of the sisters. Thank you MS Marcus for another fabulous story.

Fun fun fun, with a side of serious, what a great story! 

Jill needs money fast so she becomes a Husband-Sitter! Who knew there was such a thing lol! But with such an amazing amount of money at such a time Jill desperately needs it she's willing to give anything a go. This provides the background for a fun crazy ride that I have no clue how to explain properly hahahah. All the other reviews cover the story perfectly so I'll just say, sit down with a steaming hot cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy the ride :D

Review by Alexia - 5 Stars

"Husband Sit" by Louise Cusack is a hot, steamy, quick read. If you enjoy reading sexy/erotic romance then you will really enjoy this book. Jill Wilson is fresh out of a relationship and needs to make money quickly in order to save her sister who is in a Bangkok jail. She finds that if she takes care of the sexual needs of men, so that their wives can fool around or just not bother, she can make good money and make it fast. Her first assignment is with a man named Finn. He is a well endowed, gentleman who seems to be falling for Jill. As she continues on her sexual quest S&M with another assignment leaves her hurting and calling Finn for assistance. It seems that Jill must learn to trust her feelings in order to move on. LOVED this story. 

Review by Amanda - 5 Stars

Louise Cusack’s new book Husband Sit is an explosion of sexiness and multi-layered emotions with just the right touch of comedy. I found Ms. Cusack’s writing to be sexy and flirtatious and her characters were different and diverse. I especially enjoyed seeing Jill grow from strength to strength as she moved past the hurdles littering her life. I deeply enjoyed this racy story and sure as hell would recommend it to romance readers who like to indulge in sinfully delicious reads where likable characters and an intriguing plot combines to give you a satisfactory ending.

Highly Recommended

Review by Cheryl - 5 Stars

Jill Wilson just got out of a boring relationship that lasted 10 years too long. She is thirty something, no children, and no real home and needed to make money fast.
Jill's younger sister is soon to end up in a Bangkok jail for non-payment of hospital bills. She had gotten herself in a huge mess - boob job gone seriously wrong and needed help to pay the bills.
Jill came up with a way that she can make the money - Husband Sitting. Rich wives who will pay large sums to have a female stay in their house and keep an eye on their husband’s while they are on holiday, while they are having an affair, etc. 
First job was for Finn and his wife. But that memory of Finn will stick with her for a long time. He has sexy eyes and is well endowed. The rich wife hired Jill for a month. A bonus in there also if she can lure Finn to having sex with her since the rich wife has a girlfriend and is off having sex with her.
Book is filled with steamy sex scenes and so for sure not for young readers. There are quite the bedroom and other places of hot sex!
She learns to make sure she has a lawyer checking the contracts and letting in a friend so that someone knows where she might be.
Louise Cusack knows how to write a steamy story and with multiple characters and settings.

HUSBAND SIT by author Louise Cusack is a February 2016 release by Flirt Press.

In need of urgent money, she takes on the job of husband sitting for rich wives. To keep their husband’s at home while they go off on holidays.
This is a fun, sexy and steamy romp. It takes a reader on an alternate journey of what happens when plans go wrong and she falls in love with her first subject. The journey she takes to try and make him jealous is sexy as well as emotional.

Highly recommended for all readers of fun, sexy but emotional stories!

Review by Adel - 5 Stars

Husband Sit by Louise Cusack is Jill’s story in book one of the “Husband” series. It is a story of a desperate woman getting herself into a strange situation because she loves her dysfunctional sister. This is not just another love story, the plot is original and the characters are very entertaining in their antics.
Jill will do anything for her friends and family. She is a free spirit and yet she struggles with her father’s betrayal when she was a child. She pushed the good men in her life away until she met her match in Finn. Finn is an endearingly sexy character and puts up with a lot from Jill.
I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a bit of the forbidden, readers who appreciate a woman that does what needs to be done and makes no apologies for it. In the end, Jill finds happiness with her perfect match. 

Review by Dottie - 5 Stars

What happens when a woman over thirty with nothing to show for her ten year relationship, realizes she had nothing, no children house or for that doesn't even feel like she was in a relationship. Since she feels like everything has passed her by, a call for help from her little sister who is in trouble and not having the funds to help her, decides she needs to make money fast. How does ten thousand a week sound? That is what she will get from rich wives that want to keep their cheating husbands happy at home while they go play on vacation. So Jill Wilson starts her new career Husband sitting. Sounds like an easy plan until she meets Finn who has big green eyes and of course other big things too. This becomes a game of high and lows and Jill trying to figure if Finn may be what she was looking for all along. This is the first but truly not the last book I will read by Miss Cusack when you start you don't want to stop till the end. It is a wonderful book and you will enjoy the banter between Jill and Finn, definitely a book not to miss

The Cowgirl's Forever Family by Helen Lacey

Reviewed by Nas Dean

THE COWGIRL’S FOREVER FAMILY by author Helen Lacey is a September 2016 release by Harlequin Special Edition series. This is Book 3 of Helen Lacey’s mini-series: The Cedar River Cowboys.

Brooke Laughton can’t have babies and her fiancée of three years walked out on her when he found he was a dad from a previous relationship.

Then Tyler Madden landed on her doorstep one night literally with a baby in his hands. Could she hope for a miracle with him and this baby? Could she build her family from these tattered shreds? But Tyler was a commitment phobic corporate lawyer from the big city. And the baby was someone else’s. He was looking for the baby’s dad.


THE COWGIRL’S FOREVER FAMILY is a stunning romance with mesmerizing emotions. I laughed at Brooke’s dialogues and cried with her. It was hard to leave this story and come out of it. Author Helen Lacey took her readers high on emotions with this story. As a reader I stayed glued to the pages till the last page.


Highly recommended for all readers of romance.

Take Sophie Callaghan a women who wants to prove that she is oh so different then her father . Add Harlan Franco is a county hunter that has in the past pulled a lot of pranks on Sophie. Together her as a private investigator Sophie has dealt with all kinds of danger but she doesn't realize that Harlan the bounty hunter isn't working with her but actually being paid to protect her. Eventually she realizes the danger but he likes to be in control so you are taken on a journey with two people who both want to be on top. There are lots of emotions, secrets and sexual tension. Ms. Manning is an author you will want to keep an eye out for.

A little slow ... but in the end, I enjoyed it!

Bounty hunter and security expert Harlan Franco is used to being in control, but when his secret assignment puts him in up close contact with his difficult rival, all bets are off! She lives to drive him crazy, and he has to admit, he's enjoying it!

Sophie Callaghan is a private investigator that enjoys getting to push Harlan's buttons after some of the pranks he's pulled on her. She doesn't know that he's being paid to protect her, but after awhile it becomes too hard to not notice that there is danger around her a little too often. When secrets are exposed, will Harlan be able to keep her safe during the fallout?

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and it was so good to be back in the world of royals and problems that linger between the two beautiful kingdoms of Akathinia and Carnelia . King Kostas Laskos is doing his best to bring peace and democracy back to Carnelia and for that he needs a wife and the wife he wants is Stella Constantinides Princess of Akathinia oh but she is strong willed and they have a past that neither of them have forgotten but there is such a spark between them can he convince her that together they will make a team a good team.

Stella is loved by the people of her country and will do what ever to make sure that peace and fairness rules in Carnelia as well, her and Kostas will be a team were honesty prevails but can she keep her feelings to herself with Kostas doing all he can to entice her.

Kostas has had a dreadful childhood but has turned out such a caring honest and hard working King he will go to any lengths to bring about peace and a democracy to Carnelia but he needs Stella to help and he needs heirs but he too must not love it must be a partnership they must be a team but with a past between them that cannot stay locked away and a truth that needs to be told about the death of Stella's brother this is going to be a journey with lots of ups and owns.

Review by TashNz - 5 Stars

Through the trilogy the devastating story of Stella's brother has been a backdrop to help us reach this point – Kosta's story – king of the neighboring kingdom who was racing with Stella's brother when he plunged over the cliff and died.  Although Stella loathes Kosta for taking her brother away from her, there's history between the two, from when they climbed tree's when they were little right up until she shamed herself waiting for him in his bed a decade ago.  Asking Stella to be his Queen starts the emotional and heart tugging story of Kosta and Stella.

A brilliant story that I give 5 stars to because from page one I was invested!  I was drawn in by the great opening, I was captured by the recalled memories of Kosta and Stella, I felt the feelings the author was brilliantly laying out on the pages and I loved the setting and the plot that unfolded in such a way I was completely invested.

Stella, being the youngest of the siblings, is so over pompous princess life, she wants to make a difference to the world and Kosta's needs a Queen, to help him win the upcoming elections and a person by his side who he knows will make a difference to his people and who believes in his vision he has.  Stella is just the person, but he knows Stella hate's him for what happened with her brother but convinces her to help him and together they form a tight unit and it's clear they genuinely have feelings for each other but are the hurdles jumpable?

A great adventure, a fantastic love story and a wonderful way to wrap up the trilogy.   Could it be possible to make a fourth book with the appearance of the dead brother?  Hmmmnnn.....

A royal take on a friends to enemies to lovers story!

Princess Stella Constantinides of Akathinia is not happy to be walking down the aisle towards King Kostas Laskos of Carnelia, but for the peace and safety of her kingdom, she has agreed to this wedding. She's not going to bend to his will and be his meek little sidekick though!

Kostas regrets the hatred Stella feels towards him, when all he tried to do all those years ago was protect her from himself. He sets out to make things right with them and have a partnership in their marriage instead of animosity.

Stella has gotten over that schoolgirl crush she had on him .. or at least she wants to think she has!

Review by Alexia - 5 Stars

"Marrying Her Royal Enemy (Kingdoms & Crowns)" by Jennifer Hayward is another wonderful, quick read alone book that was thoroughly classic romance. Welcome to the Kingdoms of Carnelia and Akathinia. King Kostas Laskos needs to marry and he wants Princess Stella Constantinides. They have a past that didn't work out well because when Stella's brothers car went over a cliff all evidence pointed toward Kostas. Plus, Stella and Kostas have a past. If Kostas thinks Stella will rule meekly at his side he is mistaken. Somehow they both need to overcome the past in order to move on in the future.

Review by Dottie - 5 Stars

The last book of a trilogy called Kingdoms and crowns and what an end . We start off with Kosta asking Stella to be his Queen so as to help him in the upcoming elections. His country needs a King and he needs someone at his side. Simple solution it seems but Stella's brother was killed in a car that went over a cliff and all fingers point to Kosta being responsible. How does she do this can she ever forgive him? She knows what she must do so she accepts. This is an incredible story with so many wonderful moments in this book. The speech at their wedding is of sigh quality. Their wedding night was written so beautifully. If you have never read a Jennifer Hayward book you are missing out on one of the finest authors in the Presents series. She is an incredible author and her books are always fantastic from page one she has such a way with words that make her story so special. She never writes making it easy for the Hero and Heroine, she always puts obstacles in their way but this is what makes her book spectacular. I truly loved all these books but this was my favorite of the trilogy, this is the conclusion but and I am hoping she writes another and maybe visit all these characters again when she brings back Kostas friend Tassos, he was a favorite of mine in the story. Deserves more than 5 stars and a definite keeper.

Ezekiel West runs a gym in the seedier part of Detroit which includes a self defence class for woman he is tough and very hard but he is gorgeous in a bad boy way there are scares physical and emotional and lots of ink, Zee as he likes to be called has a lot in his past and he keeps that to himself he has close friends, friends that he calls his family and they care for each other. Zee does a lot of work with outreach and he fights to let out that dark side of him, woman are after him all the time one night stands are all he wants he is not going to lose again.

Tamara Lennox comes from a rich family a rich family with secrets and Tamara's is big but feels that nothing is real she feels like she is in a movie always doing what pleases her parents working hard in the family investment business she has a boyfriend that her parents approve of but there is no love, so when she goes to a self defence class with her friend Rose just as support she has no idea what comes over her when she meets bad boy Zee but she wants some time to be herself to open up and feel with him.

What can I say this is really one dirty hot sexy story both Zee and Tamara let lose in each others arms the faster hottest sensual and moving sex there is but there are things happening between them both are feeling things that neither planned neither wanted but wow is it good for them both. Zee opens up to Tamara like he has to no one else even his "family" and Tamara tells him her secret but when danger walks in the door this is when the love flows. I loved this one what can I say other than if you love a good bad boy and lots of hot loving pick this one up you won't want to put it down.

Review by TashNZ - 5 Stars

Mistress for a Week is a passionately warm love story of two adults who have the worst parents in the world and have spent their adult life trying to rise above the rotten examples that were set for them.  Bought back together by their naughty younger siblings Alastair and Clementine take off to Monte Carlo to find the missing wayward teens. 

The past lives of Alastair and Clem were cleverly woven together and their love story was as equally spellbinding.  I enjoyed their thoughts and verbal sparring and I think the younger siblings were an enjoyable asset to the story.  It also showed you can’t judge a book by the cover because appearances can be deceiving.  Clem is a most imperfect heroine who spends her life looking out for everyone else.  I loved that Alastair helped her grown into the beautiful swan she was.  

It was refreshing to read a hero who wasn’t so macho and his inner caring bubbled up more than once. 
A lovely read full of interesting characters  who all deserve their happy ever after in the beautiful locations they were in. 


Review by Adel - 5 Stars

His Mistress for a Week by Melanie Milburne is a book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It is an uplifting story about Alistair and Clem reconnecting after 10 years apart, it describes how they break the mould and are respectable people despite the bad decisions both their parents made. 
The story grabs you from page one. I immediately fell in love with the characters, Alistair and Clem. Clem is insecure but extremely feisty, she stands up for those she loves and is very witty. Alistair is a strong “no nonsense” type of guy who takes charge of any and every situation, he is deeply caring and protective of the people he loves.
I literally couldn’t put this book down until the last page. I would highly recommend this book to all romance lovers who like an easy flowing story that is witty, fun, sizzling and has a happy ending. Well written, Melanie Milburne!

Review by Alexia - 5 Stars

"His Mistress for a Week" by Melanie Milburne is a wonderful read alone book that was a quick, enjoyable read. Clementine Scott knows what it is like to be humiliated because Alistair Hawthorne did that to her 10 years ago. When her brother, and his step sister go missing Alistair forces Clementine to help him find her with the threat that he would call the police on her brother and have him arrested for taking his minor step sister out of the country. Seems like old habits are hard to break and they find their way back to each other.

Review by Dottie - 5 Stars

Clementine Scott has such low self esteem she feels she will spend her life alone and only worry about taking care of her brother and sending money to her mother. Plans sometimes go astray and in this case they are totally changed. Alistair Hawthorne is responsible for his step sister Harriet and finds she has run away with a Jamie the brother of Clementine and has taken money and his car. He confronts Clementine and tells her she must go with him to find the runaways. Ms. Milburne always delivers a fantastic story and again she has written a story that will draw you in from the first page. Clementine had a humiliating situation with Alistair years ago when her mother was responsible for breaking up of his parents marriage so the last place she wants to be is with Alistair but he makes it impossible for her to refuse so they travel to find the runaways. Alistair is an amazing hero and after his initial anger he realizes how difficult Clementine's life has been and so begins a relationship neither thought would be. Love has a way of slipping in when you least expect it but Clementine's self worth is so low that the real thing may pass her for lack of believing in herself. Another fantastic book by an amazing author 

Review by Amanda - 5 Stars

There aren’t enough adjectives in the English dictionary to describe Melanie Milburne’s latest offering to Harlequin Presents. His Mistress for a Week swept me away from page one. The angst. The drama. The intense scenes. The provocative writing... It took my breath away! I savored every sentence. I growled expletives at Alistair, such a brute at first. I cheered Clem on when her razor sharp tongue and inward dialogue sliced Alistair to shreds—the dialogue between H/h held such weight. It provoked and it tantalized. 

It's been ten years since Alistair and Clem laid eyes upon each other. Then one day Alistair waltzes back in town and uproots Clem from her quiet, non eventful life. It’s a storm between her and Alistair who would not take no for an answer. But they’re but determined to have their own way but Alistair is convincing enough to persuade Clem in the most ruthless way. Want to know what happens next? Just imagine having these two hot headed and temperamental rivals together… Explosion. I thoroughly enjoyed this delicious story and highly recommend it to all fans of romance! You won’t be disappointed.

Highly, Highly Recommended

A sexy take on an enemies to lovers story!

Ten years ago, an ugly confrontation happened between Clementine Scott and Alistair Hawthorne that was mostly based on raw emotions and mistaken intentions. She was left with the attitude that all men were horrible and she had no intention of ever having a relationship with one again, especially the arrogant Alistair!

Fast forward 10 years and she's approached by a seething Alistair again telling her that her little brother has taken off with his step-sister and she has to help him track them down. She resists having anything to do with him, but he doesn't give her any choice if she wants her brother to be safe.

As they spend time together, the true story of what had happened years earlier comes out and they forgive each other for the misunderstanding. They can't resist the attraction that is flaring up between them, so they decide on a a one week fling ... will either of them be able to walk away after just one week?

Yet here she was. Forced to spend one week with Alistair while they searched for her brother. But she saw a new side to Alistair. Could she forgive him for the past? Because no matter how much she denied it, the attraction between them sizzled and scorched.

HIS MISTRESS FOR A WEEK would hook a reader in and keep her hooked right till the last page. You can’t imagine Clem and Alistair ever getting together but author Melanie Milburne brings them together convincingly by how they manage to work out all the differences and fall fast in love. The sensual and the emotional scenes shimmer and sizzle. And the fun come-backs in the story would keep you laughing along with them. Yet the emotions would keep you crying too.


Highly recommended for all readers of romance.

Heartbreakers and Heroes Boxed Set | Tutoring The Heartbreaker to Love by Hayson Manning (Book 12)

Heartbreakers and Heroes by Virginia Nelson
Reviewed by Helen

This is a review for Hayson Manning's story Tutoring The Heartbreaker To Love and I have to say it is a fabulous story and I am looking forward to the other stories in this boxed set.

This is a story of second chance love it is so very sensual and moving as Walker arrives back in town Saddle Creek Montana and meets up with Savannah who is still as feisty as ever but she has been married is now divorced runs a diner that is not doing too well and she has decided to sell and move to Hawaii and just because he can her ex is being a pain and Walker cannot help himself where she is concerned.

So Walker comes up with a plan determined to help Savannah without being obvious where by she thinks she is helping him but it must be a hands off not touching the hired help but that doesn't go too well when they are so drawn to each other you could light up Montana with the electricity that shoots between them.

This is one hell of a good story it has everything, it is sexy, fun, emotional and a must read. MS Manning writes stories that will pull you in from the first page and keep you turning those pages she will have you smiling, laughing ,sighing and shedding a few tears of joy with her fabulous stories if you haven't read one of her stories I can highly recommend them.

5/5 stars for a great story
