review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-06-21 17:03
Once Upon a Maiden Lane
Once Upon a Maiden Lane - Elizabeth Hoyt

My reviews are honest & they contain spoilers. For more, follow me:


Maiden Lane series by Elizabeth Hoyt has officially ended in 2017 after 12 full-length novels under its belt. The series also got some novellas of secondary characters thrown in between. I’ve been with this series since 2011—which originally started publishing from 2010—and have been following the publication of every book ever since. If you’ve followed or read any of my reviews of Maiden Lane, you’ll know this is one of my favorite series by one of my most favorite HR authors and it hurts to know that a series that has been a part of my life for so long, has finally come to an end. Which I suppose is quite natural, and I believe, probably was for the best because the series had veered away from the original storyline in the recent years.

Once Upon a Maiden Lane is one of the last 2 novellas that bid adieu to Maiden Lane. I bought both but saved them to savor in my leisure when I feel like going back to the Maiden Lane universe. It’s the story of Mary Whitsun, a lesser known character who made appearances in the first couple of installments of the series. I’ll not go to the storyline of the original series because TBH, this novella can be read as a complete standalone. Even in such a short space, the author brilliantly gives you info that you need to enjoy the story but it doesn’t connect to any of the installments as Ms. Hoyt’s books usually do.

Lovers Lane: Summer Romances 2018 by Sandra Edwards, Regina Duke and Colleen Ladd
Lovers Lane: Summer Romances 2018 - Sandra Edwards,Regina Duke,Colleen Ladd

 

The trials and tribuliations of love from ever angle. Colleen Ladd brings a hint of the paranormal to this sweet series. In order to listen to your heart, you have to understand who you are as person. From broken hearts to restored hope, Edwards and Duke are masters at stirring up emotion. The journey to a second chance is pebbled with anger and forgiveness, but if there's faith, we'll eventually get there. Love has many layers and Lovers Lane: Summer Romances jumps into each one. Whether it's a new beginning, happy ending or an uncertain future, the risk is worth the gain. Duke, Edwards and Ladd remind us what it means to love.

All Night With The Cowboy
All Night with the Cowboy - Soraya Lane
This is the second book in this series but don’t let that stop you from enjoying this cowboy as this novel acts like a standalone. I enjoyed this novel just as much as I enjoyed the first one. As they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas well, what happens in Fuji was more than both parties had planned. They couldn’t contain what happened in Fuji to just Fuji, so what happened in Fuji followed them home.
 
They were high school sweethearts until Lauren called it off suddenly. Tanner took the break-up hard and has held a grudge against Lauren for years. Lauren couldn’t tell Tanner exactly why she broke up with him but her feeling towards him have never changed. It is now twelve years later and Tanner has just taken a hard fall. A well-known professional bull rider, Tanner has made his way to the top again only to be trampled by his competitor, Thunder Cat. After hospitalization, Tanner needs therapy from what the bull has done to his body and he needs the best. After some negotiation from both parties, it is agreed that Tanner will meet Lauren in Fuji where she was headed for vacation. Tanner will get his therapy and they both will enjoy some needed vacation, separately.
 
Lauren is all professional and business-like when they meet which disturbs Tanner. Tanner wants to air out the past and then move forward, whereas Lauren just wants to start Tanner’s therapy and enjoy her time in Fuji. It doesn’t take long for Tanner to make the first move on Lauren and the hardheaded woman, reciprocates. It’ funny how Lauren tries to get all professional again but her mind and body are thinking something totally different. After some serious thought the two of them come up with a plan. Why not have some fun in Fuji and then leave it in Fuji? Their time there is, well you can imagine. When it is time to head back into reality, it’s time to put the brakes on this adventure and get back to work. Afterall, they both have respectable jobs that they have worked hard to achieve.
 
Lauren goes back home to her job and Tanner goes to his parent’s ranch where he can get some assistance while he continues healing. Being in close proximity to each other has its advantages and disadvantages as now, they can’t put the past few weeks behind them. They each know that they have pressing job with major commitments to attend to. Being together is complicated but together they have a great connection and they are good together. Do they really have a future together or are they just kidding themselves?
 
I liked the seriousness of the characters and the fun that they had together. I liked how they were devoted to their careers and how they strived to achieve their goals. I liked how mature they were when thinking about their lives and reality, sure they could have some fun while on vacation but they both decided it would be short-lived and they both were willing to do that. It was a fun novel. I really enjoyed reading it. I suggest you read the first novel in the series also but it is not necessary to enjoy this one.
 
I received a copy of this novel from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review.

Awesome Historical Romance
Cameron - Lane McFarland

Cameron is the first book I've read by Lane McFarland, but won't be my last.  Ms. McFarland has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are amazing.  I love them.  Cameron is a healer and is abducted by the neighboring clan as revenge.  Robert's clan was attacked after Cameron's father sealed a truce.  Robert and Cameron's story is full of drama, humor, action, suspense and sexy bits.  Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down.  I enjoyed reading Cameron and look forward to reading more from Lane McFarland in the future.  Cameron is book 1 of The Daughters of Alastair MacDougall Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

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.
