Release Day Review! Christmas At the Chalet by Anita Hughes!

 

 

A delicious love story about a bridal designer showing her new collection in the Alps during the magical week of Christmas where hijinx of the heart ensue.

 

It's the day after Christmas, and Felicity Grant is at a gorgeous ski chalet in St. Moritz for the biggest fashion show of her career. Felicity is a rising star on the bridal design scene, and this is her best collection yet. But when her boyfriend gives her a spa day instead of a diamond ring for Christmas, she has to face the possibility that she may never walk down the aisle in one of her own stunning designs.

 

And then there's Nell, the top model headlining Felicity's show. Nell is planning her dream wedding to her wonderful fiance with one catch: her divorced parents can't stand each other and threaten to no-show if the other is there.

 

Add to that Felicity's race against the clock to create a special gown for a prestigious bridal salon, and what both girls need is a Christmas miracle. What better place to find one than in the Swiss Alps with its dark forests and sparkling vistas?

 

But for Felicity it's hard to recognize a miracle even when it's right in front of her, and for Nell one miracle might not be enough to fix the past. Can dreams really come true or is that the stuff of Swiss fairytales?

 

Anita Hughes's Christmas at the Chalet is full of romance, gorgeous gowns, and the stunning scenery of the Swiss Alps. It's about love and forgiveness, and creating one's own miracles during the most festive time of year.

 

 

A delightful exotic Christmas love story with strong, compelling characters that pull readers into their story. The holidays are a time that readers can expect miracles in their romance and this story certainly lives up to that expectation as Felicity Grant and Nell both wish for a Christmas miracle. Felicity is a successful bridal designer who’s beginning to think that she will never where one of her own designs since her longtime boyfriend still hasn’t popped the question and seems to be resisting getting married at all. Nell is one of Felicity’s models and she trying to plan her dream wedding, only problem is her parents refuse to be in the same room as the other. As hijinks ensure in a wonderfully exotic setting, this fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of intriguing events and emotional turbulence that ensures that readers are rooting for those Christmas miracles for Felicity and Nell. Added suspense comes from Felicity’s career as a prestigious bridal salon is interested in her designs and she meets a Doctor that is a knight in shining armor, at least he is for Felicity. Meanwhile, Nell’s parents have both joined Nell in St. Moritz for the fashion show and Nell has to keep them apart. The story is a delightfully charming read that causes some chuckling and some feel good emotions in readers and the Felicity’s romance is a bit different and doesn’t turn out the way most readers would expect.

Release Day Review! Legendary Beast (Legendary Warriors #3) Barbara J. Hancock!

 

 

She slept......his love didn't

Once upon a time, Madeline was trapped in an enchanted sleep, her baby wrapped tight in her arms. Then the white wolf woke her, and her son disappeared. For centuries, Lev Romanov searched for his wife and their child, and the search drove him half-mad. Can Madeline trust the wolf to be the man who can help her save their son?

 


This paranormal fantasy romance has a bit of a fairy tale feel to it as the heroine has been in an enchanted sleep for a really long time and once she awakens she has to join her mate and fight the evil bad guys, but of course it’s not as easy as all that. This fascinating read has some captivating characters and fascinating plot with a wonderfully different world, one that certainly captured my attention and keep me turning the pages. The romance between Madeline and Lev is one that has some major odds to overcome as there are misunderstandings, curses, magic, evil and trust issues to get in the way but the love and the attraction is still there and burns bright if they can just trust their hearts.

 

The plot is steady paced and flows smoothly throughout all the trials of tribulations of this couple’s journey to save their son with magic and thrilling battles adding excitement to the story and some unique elements spice things up as well. If you are like me and haven’t read the first two, please do because reading this story without having read them, left feeling a little lost at the beginning until I got quite a bit into the story and figured out what was happening, that’s not to say that the story wasn’t enjoyable because it was quite fascinating and kept a hold of me until I had figured it out and of course by then I really had to know how it was going to end, so I have added the previous books to my TBR pile and will hopefully get to them soon.

Release Week Review! The Howling by Erin McCarthy!
The Howling - Erin McCarthy

 

 

Beneath the silver moon . . .
 
For six months the nightmares have been chasing Liv Lugaru out of her sleep. The same terrifying dream, the same fevered wolves panting after her, their hot breath getting closer and closer as a full moon hangs heavy in the night sky—until she wakes up drenched in sweat, with her fiancé, the brother of the man who broke her heart, gazing down at her . . .
 
Six months ago, Sebastian was almost killed by his brother in a power struggle within their werewolf pack. His disappearance opened the way for his brother to console Liv, win her trust . . . without ever telling her of their true heritage. Now Sebastian is ready to reclaim his rightful place—to rise up with the moon and claim the only woman he’s ever loved . . .

 


The Howling is a werewolf romance that is on the dark side and full of danger, secrets and passion. Liv and Sebastian are two very strong, compelling characters that draw readers into their story which starts off with a tension filled suspenseful moment and proceeds to keep readers glued to the pages as they wonder just where the story is going. The romance is sweet with blazing hot passion heating up the pages but the relationship has a major drawback, Liv will have to learn the truth about herself, Sebastian and Sebastian’s brother. The story is really fast paced and packs quite a punch for such a short story and a thrilling read to enjoy when readers are short on time.

Review! HotFurStripes (Striped Passions #1) D.B. Shayne!
Hot Fur Stripes - D.B. Shayne

 

 

A curvy journalist who has sworn off men of fur; a striped gorgeous billionaire intent on claiming her. And a deadline to fulfil a life-changing promise.

 

It was undeniable. Jasmine and Terrence burn hotter than hell’s flames for each other. The hunky tiger aches to sink his claws…and other things into the beautiful, sexy journalist but a shifter Jasmine dated pulled a crazy act on her-now she’s done with furry men.

 

Terrence is determined to make Jasmine his mate and he needs more than just her body hungry for him. He has a momentous pledge to honour and time is running out…

 

A sexy, insta-love tiger shifter romance.

Hot Fur Stripes is a standalone novella with a happy ending and no cliffhangers.

 


Hot Fur Stripes is a steamy novella with strong compelling characters that grab the reader’s attention and draws them into their story where readers can practically feel the chemistry sizzling between Terrence and Jasmine. As expected the story is very fast paced because it is a novella and it has romance, passion and suspense, but the story may have been a bit too fast because it seemed the story was missing something. All the same it was a delightful read, especially for someone with only a short amount of time, so I will be moving onto the next book in the Striped Passions series, Hungry Fur Stripes.

 


Hot Fur Stripes
Goodreads - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34876916-hot-fur-stripes

 

The 1st book in the Striped Passions series which includes:
Hot Fur Stripes
Hungry Fur Stripes

A Wish Fur Stripes
& coming soon - Yearning Fur Stripes.

Release Week Review! All Night With the Cowboy (River Ranch #2) Soraya Lane!
All Night with the Cowboy - Soraya Lane

 

 

BACK IN THE SADDLE. STRAIGHT TO THE HEART. . .


At the Ford family ranch, getting thrown from a horse is a part of growing up. But one cowboy is still learning the ropes when it comes to falling in love.


Tanner Ford has been riding bulls and busting broncos his entire life. So when he takes a hard spill—and sustains serious injuries—he refuses to believe his rodeo days are behind him. He’s determined to restore his body and revive his career. There’s just one problem: the finest physical therapist in town just happens to be the only woman he’s ever loved.


Lauren Lewis knows she made a huge mistake when she walked away from Tanner. But she was young, ambitious, and focused on her medical career. Now, after all these years, Tanner’s back—and, in spite of his injuries, looking better than she allows herself to admit. She agrees to work on Tanner’s big bruised muscles until he’s back in bull-riding shape again. But how can Lauren resist the smoldering attraction between her and her old flame. . .and find a way to live without him?

 

 

 

All Night With a Cowboy is a great second chance with a first love romance with strong, compelling characters that easily draws readers into their story. The romance is sweet and the sizzling chemistry between these two burns red hot with lots of passion but the relationship is an uphill battle as past hurts interfere and emotions run high which keeps readers in suspense until the very end.

 

I enjoyed reading Tanner and Lauren’s story, they were interesting characters and had a way about them that had sincerity and the passion flowing from the pages. The overall second chance romance was inspirational as well making readers feel good although it was it bit angsty though that was to be expected with of the past hurts this couple experienced and I found that while both characters were stubborn, the author presented in such a way that it wasn’t overdone or too much drama. I haven’t read the first book in the River Ranch series but I had no trouble getting to know Tanner and Lauren as it is a standalone story and I found that Soraya Lane brought her characters to vivid life and made it easy to picture each and every scene with well written descriptions.

 

 

 

 

All Night With the Cowboy is the 2nd book in the River Ranch series which includes:

Cowboy Stole My Heart

 

 

All Night With the Cowboy is available in print or ebook at:
