My thoughts:

Sabrina shoes up on the ranch that she has invested in little does Kyle know she is the ones that is coming to his rescue. He takes on look and hates the fact she is pretty. He really doesn’t want her around but knows he needs her. Sabrina worms her way into his heart and the love begins but can he keep it all together and trust again? A great read and I look forward to more books by this author.

Sweet Girl Titan # 1.5 Review


A SWEET GIRL
Nicola Hart grew up under the heels of her older brother and his best friend, Cash Garrison. Years of ignoring the spark between her and Cash didn’t keep their attraction from turning into a slow burn. Just shy of her twentieth birthday, Nicola needs to know: he wants her or he doesn’t.

HE CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM
She’s his best friend’s little sister. The definition of hands off. Cash has tried to ignore her for years. Instead, he’s looked at every pretty little thing who’s crossed his path, all to ignore the girl he seems destined to want. But when half the school is interested in Nicola, it’s time to stake a claim and hold the hand of the one he really loves.

The Maverick of Copper Creek Review

The Maverick of Copper Creek Review

20454667Ash MacKenzie broke his share of hearts when he left Copper Creek all those years ago and struck out on his own. Tall, tough, and proud. That’s how Brenna always remembered him, and from the looks of things, he hasn’t changed much. Once, she thought he could save her-whisk her away from her rough childhood home and start fresh together. Now she knows better . . .

Ash isn’t planning to stick around town long. As soon as he uncovers the truth about his father’s death and makes sure the family ranch is safe, he’ll be back out on his own. And then he runs into Brenna Crane. It broke his heart to leave her once-a herd of stampeding horses couldn’t make him do it again. But Brenna has made a new life for herself, one that doesn’t include him. Now he just has to convince her to give their first love a second chance.

My thoughts:

Great new book to a new series. This author knows how to write western romances. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Ash broke Brenna’s heart once and she will not let him do it again since he has returned to town to see about his father’s death. Someone seems to be out for Ash or Brenna which was a nice twist. The love is still burning with them both can they survive long enough to make it happen.

This author is one of my favorites. This series has been great from the beginning. If you like westerns with some fun times and hot romance this is the series for you.

Excerpt:

 

Now, I laid down my fork and leaned into my seat. I knew she didn’t want to talk about this anymore, but I did. “This all sounds crazy to you, and maybe in the beginning, it was something to joke about, but now, I’m not sure. These pictures were taken directly out of my life, and this woman was in every one of them. You can’t tell me I just dreamed it from memory, because my memory isn’t that good! The photos were identical all the way from the clothes we wore, to the smile on our faces. Hell, even the background was the same! She was the only thing that was different. How could that be?”

I stared at her, waiting for a response as she took it all in.

“Like I said on the phone, I just don’t know what you want me to say. I’m not sure what you’re asking me. Is it weird? Yeah, totally, but I’m no dream expert, and neither are you. Like I said before, maybe it’s your subconscious taking over. I’m sure there’s a logical explanation, and it probably has some fancy scientific name.”

“She’s my wife,” I said flatly. “I saw a picture of us from our wedding, and we looked like we belonged together. We know each other. I mean, really know each other. I wish you could see us together, because you’ve never seen me this way with anyone before.”

“And what way is that?”

“In love,” I answered.

“In love,” Shelly repeated and then pushed herself away from the table. “Well, Maddy, me seeing you with her is something that will never happen. Do you wanna know why that will never happen?”

“I know why you think that will never happen, but that’s where you’re wrong.” I stared at her and said, “I’m just gonna come out and say it. I think she’s real.”

Secret of the Souls

Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.

About Terri Rochenski

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with the fantasy genre.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

Excerpt:

 

Prentice & Desiree

Book Two Sapphire Club series

Brita Addams

 

Chapter One

1804

Desiree’s quarry skirted the periphery of the ballroom. She’d feigned

indisposition to escape her mother’s cloying grasp and hidden

near the terrace doors until her assignation wended his way through the

marriage-minded mothers and their desperate daughters.

“He’s mine,” she silently told each one. “I will claim the

hand of the Earl of Cheshire.”

In anticipation of his momentary arrival, she smoothed imaginary

wrinkles from her gown, as he smiled and flirted, kissed hands, and

chatted with mothers worried about how firmly their daughters sat on the

shelf.

While Desiree’s parents had betrothed her to Jonathan Greeley, they

had neither consulted Desiree nor asked her opinion of the match. He was

fine enough—rich, handsome, and several years—but not too many—older

than she, but at eighteen, she wasn’t as marriage-minded as she ought to

be, or so said her mother at every opportunity.

Her sense of adventure kept her searching for something more than

needlework, watercolors, and handling the household accounts, much to

her mother’s consternation. The woman insisted upon daily visits to the

milliner, the dressmaker, the shoemaker. Desiree had more hats, dresses,

and shoes than any woman of her acquaintance.

“You must go to your husband in clothes befitting your station. You are

a lady of good breeding.”

Earlier in the evening, when the Earl of Cheshire asked her to dance,

her heart nearly sank into her pretty kid shoes. She marked the steps of

her well-rehearsed quadrille, and the earl flirted shamelessly, the mere

intensity of his gaze enough to entrance her even an hour later. When

they came together, he’d made the dance an intimate experience, one that

hadn’t escaped her vigilant mother.

“No lady should dance so closely to a young man. Why, I wouldn’t dance

that close to your father. Where has decency gone?”

She’d reasoned that explained her lack of siblings.

The earl’s flirtations weren’t lost on her. She was, given the opportunity, of

a like mind. Two years at the estimable Mrs. Petrie’s School for Young Ladies

in Bath had served to enhance more than her education as to the use of globes.

Her real instruction came after hours, during the randy conversations

with her fellow students. She’d learned the ways of the world—that

which transpires between men and women—taught by the girls whose

maidenheads hindered the lives they wished to lead.

The school’s drawing classes often served to educate during those

long nights, as Ruby Lake drew, from memory, or so she assured, detailed

images of the male member and its many uses.

“This belongs to none other than the Earl of Cheshire,” Ruby told her

rapt audience. “One day, I’ll marry him and experience it—again.”

Ruby related details of her encounter with the earl, and the girls nearly

expired from envy. All but Desiree. That night, she made it her purpose

to wrangle the lascivious earl and, through any means necessary, make

him her own. Every woman of her age would envy her for having taken the

plum prize on the marriage mart.

Though the drawings of the earl’s cock—Ruby insisted they refer to it

as such—frightened her, due to its sheer size, she’d grown so enamored

by it that she filched the drawings and kept them as part of her most

treasured possessions. That, and her father’s not so secret collection of

erotic drawings that turned her mind from embroidery to anything carnal.

That very afternoon, Desiree had, while under strict instruction to nap

in preparation for the ball, taken the drawings from their secure hideyhole

and traced over them with her finger. The implied intimacy shook

her, made her feel things she didn’t understand. The interminable heat

remained long after she tucked the drawings away.

Should luck find her, as well as a not so full moon, she’d proceed with

her plan to discover for herself whether the Earl of Cheshire was indeed

thusly endowed, or if his fabled member, as with so many things in life,

was a mere figment of a naughty girl’s imagination.

Waiting for him just inside the large French doors unnerved her, given

that her overprotective mother cast a rather long shadow. She had spies

everywhere and seemed capable of being in more than one place at a time.

I should have told him to meet me in the orangery.

From behind the Corinthian column, she spied on him. He moved with

such grace—without doubt all the men in the room envied him his God-given

confidence.

She placed her hand over her heart, which beat faster than it should. He

was a god himself, blessed with hair the color of sunlight, skin bronzed by

hours on horseback, his tall muscular body—oh, my. She took her fan from

her reticule and whipped it to purpose.

As he spoke to Emily Hargrave, Desiree’s heart thudded. They spoke

briefly, he smiled, she giggled. Another vacuous daughter of nobility.

He nodded to other girls, kissed the hands of no less than a dozen, and

the moment she stepped out from behind the sheltering column, he stood

before her, his smile as bright as the sun on a clear summer morning. “Good

evening, again, Miss Fairholme. Might you care to join me on the terrace?”

He winked and offered his arm. Oh, he played the part of deceiver well,

given she had arranged the assignation by way of a promissory missive.

Shameful, yes, but she had competition to consider.

She gave the room one last glance and took his arm. “Yes, I would,”

she said with a lilt in her voice. No reason to sound scared, despite her

watery knees.

The earl guided her through the French doors, out onto the terrace.

“The music is so loud,” she said, taking matters into her own hands. “You

might find the garden to your liking.” She grabbed his hand and scampered

down the wide stone steps. “Oh, look. I’d love to see the orangery, wouldn’t you?”

She dashed across the manicured lawn, toward the orangery at the

edge of the property.

“Your parents might miss you.”

“I’ll worry about that later.”
