Fantastic Historical Romance
The Secret of My Seduction - Caroline Linden

The Secret Of My Seduction by Caroline Linden is a well-written historical romance.  This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Linden has given us a book loaded with amazing, lovable characters.  Bathsheba secretly writes naughty books to support her injured brother and herself.  Liam is her publisher and the only person that knows about her writing.  Bathsheba and Liam's story is loaded with drama, humor, and smokin' hot sex.  I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more from Caroline Linden soon.  

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Stay
The Marine's Seduction - Lori King

Bristol & Roan have been best friends since they were kids.  One night gets hot and steamy, and then they are closer than before.  With Roan getting deployed, they both have time to decide what they want by the time he gets home.

 

Roan has been in love with Bristol for so long.  He finally gets to show her how he feels.  When things get complicated, she tries to separate herself from him.  He wants to make the future happen, and show her just how he feels.

 

This was a sweet and touching story.  I am not giving spoilers, but this is a great read.  I love the characters care about each other and there is a solid friendship foundation there.  I also found the heat level was turned up and stayed there.  Always easy to love a man in uniform.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Excerpt:

 

“Whose idea was it to get an apartment on the third floor of a building with no fucking elevator?” she groaned, holding her head.


“If I recall, you wanted this place because of the rooftop deck. Said you could watch the sunrise whenever you wanted like you were on top of the world.”


“Yes, the roof!” Bristol nodded and clapped her hands excitedly. “Let’s go up there and look at the stars.”

 

“You need to get some sleep, B,” he protested as she pulled him through the small apartment to the stairway he knew led above.


“I will, but we can look at the stars now, then when you’re gone, I’ll think of you every time I look up at them. I’ll know you’re looking at the same stars, thinking of me.”


Roan knew she probably didn’t intend her words to be so sentimental, but the alcohol was acting like a truth serum, and it shut down her inhibitions. She rarely allowed anyone to see this side of her. Following her up the tiny flight of stairs, he was soon seated on a wooden lounge chair, with her between his legs, her back against his chest, his arms wrapped around her to keep her warm.


“See, there’s my favorite, Ursa Major, the Big Bear,” she pointed upwards.

 

“Isn’t that the Big Dipper?”

 

“Yes and no. The Big Dipper is part of the Big Bear, but they’re still two different constellations,” she explained. “My dad taught me that when I was tiny.”

 

Her voice was wistful when she spoke of her recently deceased father, and Roan hugged her tighter. Having lost his own mother to uterine cancer when he was eleven, he sympathized with her pain.

 

“Roan, how much longer do you think you can take doing these missions?” she asked randomly.

 

Stunned silent, he could only shrug behind her.

 

“You’ve been gone more than you’ve been home. Don’t you get lonely?”

 

“Sure, every Marine gets lonely occasionally, but I’m one of the lucky ones because I get constant contact. You and my family send me packages, letters, and cards, and I can use FaceTime on some missions, Skype on others. There are plenty of guys over there who don’t have access to any of that.”

 

“Would you stay if they gave you the option?”

 

Roan tensed and frowned down at the top of her head, “What do you mean?”

 

“I don’t know. I just hate when you’re gone. My world seems off-kilter somehow.” She sat up abruptly. “I’m like Lucy with no Ethel.”

 

“Excuse me?” He felt his eyebrow arch in question. “I am no Ethel. If anyone here is Lucy, it’s me.”

 

“Nah, Lucy was always instigating trouble, and Ethel just went along with it.”

 

“Which is exactly why I’m the Lucy in this relationship,” Roan laughed. She shivered, and he tugged her back against him. Instead of resuming their spooned position, she lay sideways against him, her shoulder on his chest, her hands dangerously close to forbidden territory. “If you’re cold, we should go back downstairs.”

 

“I don’t want to yet. I like having you all to myself,” she sighed and tipped her face up, the pale moonlight barely lighting her face properly. “Have you ever thought about giving it up? The Marines, I mean?”

 

“Aw, B, of course, it’s crossed my mind. Every man who’s had to watch a friend die or had to kill someone has second-guessed his career choice, but I was born to be a Marine. Giving it up would be like giving up air. My body just wouldn’t work anymore.”


She nodded, “I figured you would say something like that.” “I always come back.”

She's the wallflower with big dreams and secret fantasies. Simon and Bette could be a perfect match, if they learn to trust each other. Lisa Childs scorches up the pages with her sensual tango of love lust and mistrust. Love is a risky business and Ms Child's makes the risk worthwhile.

Review: Seduction on the Slopes by Tamsen Parker
Seduction on the Slopes: Snow & Ice Games - Tamsen Parker

Miles is veteran skier on the U.S. downhill team. In the sport longer than some of his competitors have been alive, it’s his last year participating in the prestigious Snow and Ice Games (SIGs), and he plans on taking home two more gold medals. However, after that, Miles isn’t really sure where his life will lead.

 

Crash is the up-and-coming newest downhill sensation, and after Miles mentions to the U.S. coach the potential he sees in Crash, coach gets Crash on the SIG team and assigns Miles with mentoring duties. Crash loves to ski, but doesn’t love the endless press events and media time required at the SIGs. When his childhood idol, and long-time crush, Miles takes the time to help Crash, he will do whatever Miles says.

 

Seduction on the Slopes is the standalone sophomore title from Ms. Parker’s Snow and Ice Game series. This time around, romance blossoms between two men on the U.S. downhill team, and wow! is it hot. I like that both Miles and Crash are secure and confirmed gay men - albeit not entirely out of the closet. There is no confusion over preference, allowing for other conflicts to cause hesitation. The primary being that the pair are teammates and competitors. Yet, when Miles discovers why Crash struggles with the media, he genuinely wants to help him, even if that means helping him off in a sexual way. 

 

As the pair spend time together, the mentor/mentee line blurs and a true bond of friendship develops. Their similarities and ability to relate so easily go a long way in closing any age gap that may make things awkward. And while Crash may be younger, he can be wiser at times. The two are competitors first, but because they are both truly good people, they can coexist as friends and lovers. 

 

The romance moves quickly and the story comes with an HEA. I love how they come together and love the simplicity of the title. Sexy athletes falling in love? Sign me up for more!

 

My Rating:  B+ Liked It A Lot
