“Luca….”
 
She whispers my name at night, filling my dreams with her haunting beauty. Her tormented amber eyes
 
beg me for something I don’t understand, and her agonizing pain becomes my own.
 
For years, she’s come to me, calling my name.
 
For years, I’ve never known who she was.
 
Until now….
 
 
 
 
 
.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The more I read this author the more I love her books.This story evoked so many emotions in me one minute I was scared the next nervous the next cringing and the whole time sitting on the seat of my pants to see what will happen next.
 
This story had a great cast of characters and I have to say I loved Luca and his family as the were just awesome.The story had so many twists and turns that it made it totally engrossing and definitely a page turner.I loved how Luca had a tattoo shop and was and artist I love when a character has a craft and the fact that his shop was filled with interesting characters as well as his sister Ella who really livened things up quite a bit."I just loved her sense of humor!'
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is Luca .I loved him from the onset and fell in love with him after his interaction with his niece .So many sweet moments...
 
Jules was another character that you had to admired as she constantly kept getting dealt a raw deal but, each and every time it just made her a stronger person.One of the things I loved about her the most is how she listened to her instincts and paid attention to those gut feelings of hers when it came to Theo as she sensed right from the very beginning something was off with him but with Luca she felt safe even learning all about him.
 
This story had a complicated plot and a ton of heartbreak,secrets,betrayals creating a really dark story but as the story progressed it brought happiness and second chances at rediscovering the love you once shared with the one you loved.For me it was a great story all around even with the content because all along you knew there was just so much more to the story and couldn't wait for it all unfold as you knew in you heart Luca had to be innocent in this sinister plot .
 
A gripping story from beginning to end and we loved it and highly recommend it to all.

Her Counterfeit Husband (Mustang, Montana) (Silhouette Intimate Moments #885) - Carla Cassidy

I think I was halfway through this one when I realized I'd read another book in the series a week or so ago.

 

So our h got worked over by a con artist. She had an inheritance, and some insurance money, and he used his good looks and charmed her into marriage. Then his partner stole her money, and he "disappeared"...after getting her knocked up.

 

His identical twin comes behind to a) figure out what happened and b) clean up his mess if necessary. Poses as him for a bit, before finally revealing himself to her. The accomplice is after him for the money. He figures, based on twin's past history, the trail leads to Vegas so they go, and find the end of the trail for twin.

 

Go back, and with help of local sheriff, and h's retired bounty hunter - brother, set up a trap...that accomplice fails to spring. Instead accomplice walks in an unlocked door and takes them by surprise after everyone has presumably gone home. Fortunately, the bounty hunter was suspicious so didn't.

 

It was a quick read. I couldn't help but wonder if pregnancy hormones didn't help things along. Also thought H maybe a bit too quick to roll over for a PI. Really hard to imagine him being v. effective as beta as he seemed at times.

Untamed by Nora Roberts
Untamed - Nora Roberts
Jovilette "Jo" Wilder has spent her entire life in the circus. She knows no other life, and she wants no other life...Until the new owner shows up after inheriting the circus from the father he's never met.


This story sure didn't age well. The story itself could work in any time setting, but the characters and their actions and reactions don't fare well in this day and age.

First of all, the story is written in third person, but from the heroine's perspective. Since said heroine, despite being twenty-two (or so we're told) comes across as childish, immature and rather self-absorbed, so we don't glean much about the hero or his possible inner workings from the narrator.
Because we're not privy to the hero's inner voice, his character and his intentions remain (mostly) a mystery, and the final revelation about his true feelings doesn't really work and seems rather unbelievable or implausible.

Scene of the Crime: Bachelor Moon by Carla Cassidy
Scene of the Crime: Bachelor Moon (Mills & Boon Intrigue) - Carla Cassidy

FBI profiler Sam Connelly is on a forced vacation in a Louisiana B&B when someone targets the B&B owner. The secret admirer has been leaving the single mother and her daughter little gifts, but now he's escalating by leaving her a murdered would-be competitor accompanied by a creepy phone call.

Sam knows they're dealing with yet another monster, and he's willing to do anything to keep mother and daughter from harm.


Formulaic and rather predictable with a myriad of coincidences (the admirer escalates right when Sam starts his vacation...show/hide spoiler
). The only thing I didn't see coming was the identity of the crazy admirer, since there were no real clues with red herrings leading everywhere else but there.

This time it was the hero's turn to be scared of loving anyone due to "what was hidden underneath" (eye roll, please), the heroine fell for the guy too quickly, I didn't really buy the love-thing from the hero...
The only remotely decent part of this story was the suspense, which was unfortunately overshadowed by the botched-up and rushed romance.

Scene of the Crime: Bridgewater, Texas by Carla Cassidy
Scene of the Crime: Bridgewater, Texas (Mills & Boon Intrigue) (Harlequin Intrigue) - Carla Cassidy

A killer struck in the small town of Bridgewater, Texas. But he made a terrible mistake choosing his victim. Because FBI agent Jenna Taylor will stop at nothing to find the man who killed her best friend and make him pay. She will stop at absolutely nothing, not even stepping on local sheriff’s toes. And it’s clear Matt Buchanan doesn’t want her there. Stepping on his toes.

His wishes and wants soon change, when the killer strikes the second time. Matt knows the third kill will "establish" whether they’re dealing with a serial killer or not, but he doesn’t want to wait until the third strike. He asks Jenna for her profiling help and she says yes…But she is working on something all on her own. She decided to be the lure and the killer has taken the bait.


These Harlequins are very repetitive, the been-there-read-there variety. An emotional-baggage-laden heroine, a widowed hero, that’s decided to let go of his past and take another shot at love and the heroine is just the person he turns to, a lot of angst and drama when she decides a lasting relationship is off limits and he decides to prove her wrong…And a killer gunning for the emotional-baggage-laden heroine who sees what she's missing and what she really wants from life when it's almost too late.

Well, this story was no different, except for the fact the hero, ex-homicide detective turned small-town sheriff has a scar, and the villain's identity came rather out of the left field without any clues and loads of red herrings that didn't lead anywhere.
The heroine was a pill with mommy issues, the hero was as one-dimensional as he could've been, the "romance" felt rushed and unbelievable...And the story lost two stars on this re-read.
