Dukes Prefer Blondes By Loretta Chase $1.99 5 Star Read!
Dukes Prefer Blondes (The Dressmakers Series) by Chase, Loretta(December 29, 2015) Mass Market Paperback - Loretta Chase

Biweekly marriage proposals from men who can't see beyond her (admittedly breathtaking) looks are starting to get on Lady Clara Fairfax's nerves. Desperate to be something more than ornamental, she escapes to her favorite charity. When a child is in trouble, she turns to tall, dark, and annoying barrister Oliver Radford.

 

Though he's unexpectedly found himself in line to inherit a dukedom, Radford's never been part of fashionable society, and the blonde beauty, though not entirely bereft of brains, isn't part of his plans. But Clara overwhelms even his infallible logic, and when wedlock looms, all he can do is try not to lose his head over her . . .

 

It's an inconvenient marriage by ordinary standards, but these two are far from ordinary. Can the ton's most adored heiress and London's most difficult bachelor fall victim to their own unruly desires?

On the Chase by Katie Ruggle
On the Chase (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit) - Katie Ruggle

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I liked this book. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely entertaining. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Run to Ground, when I read it a few months ago so I was pretty excited to read Hugh's story. It was a pretty fast read for me since I had a rather hard time actually setting the book aside. 

The book opens with Kaylee in her old life. She witnesses a horrifying crime and becomes a target herself. In order to stay safe, she changes her identity and starts all over. Kaylee, or Grace as she is now called, moves in with Jules and her four siblings. I was really happy to see all of the wonderful characters from the first book of the series having such an important role in this book. Grace is slow to adjust to her new life because she is living in constant fear.

Hugh is on leave as he recovers from a bullet wound and he is driving everyone crazy. He keeps showing up and getting involved in things when he is supposed to be resting. He thinks that Grace is being completely honest from the first moment he meets her. He becomes determined to find out what her real story is. 

So like I said earlier this book wasn't perfect. Hugh crossed a few lines that kind of bothered me. It was like the man had no boundaries. A locked door....no problem, because he would find a way to get in anyway. This kind of behavior seemed to happen quite a bit at the beginning of the book but did lessen as the story progressed. I think that Grace let him off a little too easy a couple of times in the book.

I did like Grace and Hugh together. Grace is honest with Hugh about her past as soon as it becomes a safety issue and then they really do start to become a team. There were some pretty exciting scenes in the book that really had my pulse pounding. They did have great chemistry with each other and I really enjoyed their banter. 

I would recommend this book to others. I enjoyed this action packed romance with wonderful chemistry between the characters. I am looking forward to reading more in the great series from Katie Ruggle very soon.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley.

Initial Thoughts
I liked this book. Grace and Hugh had wonderful chemistry and I loved their banter. There were some exciting moments in the story and I was pleased to see so many characters from the first book playing an important role. The story wasn't perfect but I did enjoy reading it.

Chase in Shadow (Johnnies #1) by Amy Lane Review
Chase in Shadow - Amy Lane

Chase Summers: Golden boy. Beautiful girlfriend, good friends, and a promising future. 

Nobody knows the real Chase.

Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover’s goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he’d rather die than open it, and the lies he’s used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster. 

Chase has one chance for true love and salvation. He may have met Tommy Halloran in the world of gay-for-pay—where the number of lovers doesn’t matter as long as the come-shot’s good—but if he wants the healing that Tommy’s love has to offer, he’ll need the courage to leave the shadows for the sunlight. That may be too much to ask from a man who’s spent his entire life hiding his true self. Chase knows all too well that the only things thriving in a heart’s darkness are the bitter personal demons that love to watch us bleed.

Review

 

Well. This book is a trigger fest (suicide, depression, eating disorder, PTSD, childhood trauma, and abuse) and we get buried pretty deep in Chase's mind (and for much of the book he is not okay).

 

So much happens in this book. I can't talk about much of it without spoilers It is a pretty crazy ride.. My favorite is Chase gets therapy. Tommy does too and I would have liked to see more of that.

 

How this couple gets together is rough but the after they are together parts are the best bits in the book to me and I wish that had happened earlier.

 

I like this couple. I read this book because of meeting Tommy in Freckles. They earn a happily ever after I can believe in (even though there is a twist at the end that is hard to take lol)

Kismet
Again: A Second Chance Romance - Nikki Chase

This second chance romance doesn't have the the suspense level that I've come to expect from this author, but the story is just as engrossing. Aiden and Aubrey haven't seen each other for ten years and there are secrets behind the reasons for that separation. It doesn't take much to figure out the nature of those secrets, but not having that surprise didn't ruin this one for me at all. When an odd set of circumstances bring this couple back together, it's everything a second chance should be - sweet, apprehensive, romantic, and fan yourself sexy. Aubrey does a lot of growing up and makes quite the personal journey with the help of Aiden and others close to her. With everything that tries to come between them, Aiden and Aubrey's story is one that can only be described as kismet.

Protecting the Movie Star (The Protectors) by Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams
Protecting the Movie Star (The Protectors Book 4) - Samantha Chase,Noelle Adams

 

If experience makes the man, Cole is a force to be reckoned with.  From an early age he's fought battles that no person should have to face and done acts that have left him in despair.  Criminal, fighter and best friend are monikers he can't escape, but the one title that changes the man from fighter to warrior is protector.  He wears that title like a badge of honor and will let nothing stop him from shielding the woman he loves.  Not even guilt. Protecting the Movie Star is darker and bolder than the previous three novels in the Protectors series. Not only does Cole and Evangeline tempt readers with their page turner romance, but authors Chase and Adams close out the series by tying up loose ends. An emotional tale of redemption, faith and hope that inspires the heart and heals the soul.
