Three Nights Before Christmas Kat Latham Review
Three Nights before Christmas (Montana Born Christmas) - Kat Latham

On the 3rd day of Christmas, my bookstore brought to be a train, a woman just out of prison, a christmas tree farm and a park ranger...

 

***2016 RITA® Finalist in the Contemporary Romance: Short Category***
***HOLT Medallion Award winner for outstanding literary fiction***

Have yourself a steamy little Christmas…

After three years in prison, freight train engineer Lacey Gallagher doesn’t expect this Christmas to be very merry and bright. At least chopping down trees for her brother’s Christmas tree farm will help her save money to get her life back on track. All her plans derail, though, when her new job puts her in territory patrolled by the man who haunts her dreams—the forest ranger who sent her to prison.

Austin Wilder isn’t thrilled about Lacey working in his forest—but he soon realizes he needs her help. His family is depending on him to restore an old steam train for a spectacular Christmas event, and train expert Lacey is his only hope of finishing in time.

Working together challenges every assumption Lacey and Austin have about each other, and they discover a desire hot enough to melt even the deepest Montana snow. But will the season of second chances be enough to mend the most hardened broken heart?

 

 

Review

 

I adore this book.

 

It is so thoughtful. Our heroine was a train engineer. My love of trains can't be understated so I completely get her train love. And this thing she loved was taken away from here when she was implicated in drug smuggling.

 

She is coming home to her family christmas tree farm after serving her sentence. She readjusting.

 

The hero is the ranger who arrested her. But he needs her to help fix a train. And then she gets to know her.

 

I love the heroine sexual agency. I love the hero's ability to see he was wrong.

The setting is great. The brother sister relationship is so well done. The romance is tender and brave and real.

 

And we get a Christmas Tree Farm at Christmas. Yes.

 

Snuggle up with this one.

 

I was given this book for my honest review so there you go! 4. 5.

Playing It Close (London Legends, #2) by Kat Latham Review
Playing It Close - Kat Latham

Where do you go to escape everything when you're one of the most famous rugby players in the world? For Liam Callaghan, that place is a remote lodge on Venezuela's Caribbean coast. Perfect, except he doesn't exactly want to be alone with his thoughts. Enter Tess Chambers, the ultimate distraction.

Still reeling from a professional disaster that's made her all but unemployable, Tess understands the desire to move through life as somebody else. So when instantly recognizable Liam uses a fake name, she runs with it and creates a temporary new identity of her own.

Their time spent together in paradise is idyllic but brief--after one passionate night, Liam wakes up to find Tess gone. Returning to London, he's shocked to learn she's taken a job with his team's new sponsor. As the Legends' captain, he'll have to not only figure out how to work with the one woman who ever left him wanting more, but also convince her that their feelings in the present mean more than any lies they've told in the past.

 

 

Review

 

This romance takes tried and true tropes and puts delightful spins on them.

 

They both lie to each other about who they are.

 

The heroine is involved in a scandal the looks at women in male dominated fields. She is really good at what she does. Her family stands by her.

 

It is a great love story with imperfect characters set against London, rugby, and eco tourism.

 

Very sexy. Very good.

 

I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.

Unwrapping Her Perfect Match By Kat Latham Free! Wonderful!
Unwrapping Her Perfect Match: A London Legends Christmas Romance by Kat Latham (2014-11-06) - Kat Latham

Twas a week before Christmas, and at the auction house...

At six foot one, Gwen Chambers has felt like a giant her whole life. She’s a calm, capable nurse saving lives in a busy London hospital, but healthy men give her heart palpitations. When larger-than-life rugby player “Little” John Sheldon convinces her to bid on him in his team’s fundraising auction, she discovers how pleasurable heart palpitations can be.

A rugby player was stirring, with desire no one could douse...

John has wanted Gwen since he first saw her, but when he’s injured in a match just before Christmas he suddenly needs her too. Not only can the sexy nurse help him recover, but she might be able to help him look after his daughter—a shy ten-year-old who speaks only French.

But will it be a Happy Christmas for all, and for all a good night?

From decorating the Christmas tree to ice skating at the Tower of London, Gwen helps father and daughter open up and bond with each other—and she bonds right along with them. But when John's agent calls with a life-changing offer, Gwen has to decide how far she’s willing to go for her perfect match. Will their first Noël also be their last?

One Night with Her Bachelor (Wild Montana Nights Book 1) Kat Latham Review
One Night with Her Bachelor - Kat Latham

Bid on a date with this wounded warrior for an unforgettable night of adventure. Aim high—and bid higher!—because no one comes close to local hero Gabriel Morales.

Molly Dekker hates being the town charity case, but when her son Josh is seriously injured she has no choice. She lets her best friend organize a bachelor auction to help pay her massive bills and make Josh’s life more comfortable. She can’t bid on any of the men, but a surprise bidder gives her a gift she never expected: a date with the man who saved her son’s life—the only one she’s in danger of losing her heart to.

Former Air Force pararescueman Gabriel Morales made a career of flying to the rescue, until a tragic helicopter crash stole more than his livelihood. Being auctioned off like a slab of beef isn’t in his recovery plan. But one look, one touch and one night unlocking Molly’s pent-up passion make him realize how badly he needs to be rescued…and how badly he wants to rescue Molly right back.

Will Molly and Gabriel’s never-quit attitude have them rushing head-first into love? Or will Gabriel’s secret pain stall their relationship before it can get off the ground?

 

Review

 

 

What I love about Kat Latham's heroines is the amount of sexual agency they have without being turned into the female version of a man whore which many writer's mistakenly do.

 

This heroine is sick of being thought of as nice and therefore asexual. She is a single mother whose son has reached an age where she can have five minutes to herself.

 

She goes after the guy. He is still recovering from his experiences in the war and isn't quite there yet but he adores her very quickly.

 

And then we have a romance which is lovely, achey, and grounded. Good stuff.
