Spies, murder and gold
A Proposition for the Comte - Sophia James

Lady Violet Addington officially mourned her husband, unofficially she was quite glad he was gone as he was abusive to her and his sister and her sons. His death may have been ruled as an accident but it was more his chickens coming home to roost. Now she's back into society but there's danger all around. One of her husband's secrets is putting her in jeopardy and someone will do anything to find out what he did with some gold. 
When she picks up a stranger one night who turns out to be a french intelligence agent, the Compte de Beaumont, not that she knows who the unconscious man is, his wounds needed tending.
Lots of trying to find who the villain is and complicated politics and the complications of the pair of them falling in love. She believes that she can't have children so there is some (eventually resolved) angst there about that. There is also some angst and trouble but at the end it's all resolved. The relationship starts with lust and ends with romance and the two of them seem good with each other. I liked it.

REVIEW BY DEBBIE - The Proposition (Nights Series #6) by A.M. Salinger
The Proposition (Nights Series #6) - A.M. Salinger

They call me the Charmer. My best friend Wade tells me it’s because I’m suave and mysterious. But he doesn’t know my secret. The one I’ve kept hidden from him for twelve years. The one I will never reveal to him — Rhys

They call me The Brute. Probably because of my physique. And, let’s face it, because I’m a total dick at times. So Rhys likes to tell me anyway. Thing is, there’s something Rhys isn’t telling me. Something I’m dying to hear from his lips. His sinful confession. You see, I know Rhys’s secret — Wade


Rhys Damon has spent most of his adult life watching Wade Tucker bed woman after woman, his dark desire for his best friend and business partner a secret he is determined to take to his grave, since he knows it will never be reciprocated. With their design firm thriving across two continents, Rhys finds himself content burying his heartache in a string of meaningless, casual sex arrangements. Until the night everything changes.


When Wade Tucker stumbles upon his best friend calling out his name as he pleasures himself, he knows his relationship with Rhys will never be the same again. A year later, the memory of what Wade saw is still branded in his mind and his feelings for Rhys have evolved into something he never anticipated. As tension mounts and the relationship between the two business partners becomes increasingly strained, things finally come to a head the night Wade follows Rhys and discovers him with another man.


After an explosive confrontation, Wade makes Rhys a proposition he can’t refuse: that they try things out for six weeks. Six weeks of exploring a side of each other they never knew before. Six weeks of torrid kisses and sultry touches. Six weeks of screamingly good, scorching hot sex. Six weeks of utterly losing themselves to one another.


But as the end of their proposition looms in sight, can Wade persuade Rhys that he wants more? Or will Rhys’s deep-seated fears stop him from fully surrendering his heart and soul to the one man he thought he could never have?


Discover Rhys and Wade’s wickedly intoxicating story in this sixth novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger. 


Note from the author: although each book in Nights can be read as a standalone, you will enjoy this series even more if you read the books in order!

Awesome Historical Romance
A Wicked Proposition - Karolyn Cairns

Talk about twists and turns, OMG, does this book have some.  A Wicked Proposition, by Karolyn Cairns, is a phenomenal historical romance with more ups and downs than a rollercoaster.  Ms. Cairns has provided readers with a well-written book furnished with outstanding characters.  I totally love the characters in this book.  The characters' relationships are so twisted I'm not even going to try to explain them.  I will say there is plenty of drama, smokin' hot sex, action, suspense and bits of humor.  This is one of those books you can't put down. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Karolyn Cairns soon.  A Wicked Proposition is book 1 of the Wicked Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.  After reading the epilogue though, you'll want to read the next book.

*deep long sigh... and another half-assed HEA crossed from my list
An Intriguing Proposition - Sydney Jane Baily

First and foremost, I am not familiar with the work of Sydney Jane Baily. I have never read any of her books and this is the first time I have heard of her. I stumbled onto this prequel on InstaFreebie and I gave it a fair chance. 


This book is a prequel to The Defiant Hearts series and it is not a full length novel, it has 98 pages and only comes in ebook format. 


To keep things nice and short, here's my honest opinion about An Intriguing Proposition.


This book skips on the worldbuilding and any character development. It throws you in the midst of a story that deserves a whole prequel of its own. Irony is that this is a damn prequel. We only get the basics of a plot, if I can even call it that, that is summed into a few sentences. The rest of the story is an unbelievable mess of the most idiotic coincidences and stupid people who think they are in love because they saw each other once in a bank and exchanged a few words. 


I am not going to dwell too much on all the bad things, and trust me there's a whole damn list of them, but I am going to mention a few good things. I liked the setting of a story and in its very essence, the idea of the story. The final product did not turn out well but I give credit for the idea alone and a few quirky lines of dialogue that made me smile, well, I had a hint of a smile on my face at the very least.


I honestly hope that this book does not reflect on the rest of this series nor on the author's work in general. I am of the opinion that everyone deserves a second chance so I will most likely give this author one more chance if I come across one of her books. But it has to be said that people with a sharp mind, good wit and even mediocre intelligence will probably not like this book because even on the lower HEA standards this is not a success.


If anyone happens to know if any of the author's other books are better, I am happy to note it down and put it on my to-read list.

The Proposition by Elizabeth Hayley
The Proposition (A Players Novel) - Elizabeth Hayley

Hockey star, Ben Williamson, hires Ryan Cruz to attend his brother’s wedding with him.  The more the couple gets to know each other the less sure either one is of keeping their relationship strictly professional.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.


When I stared to read this book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it.  I enjoyed the story more and more the further I got into the novel. 


I like Ben.  He is in an interesting situation with his family.  It is understandable why he did not want to go to his brother’s wedding alone.  Ryan is a strong heroine.  I respect that despite her difficult past, she has upstanding morals. 


I appreciate Ben’s friends Gabe and Jace.  I think it’s great that they met in college and are professional athletes in different sports.


Ben and Ryan grew for the better throughout the story.  They discovered things about themselves and made each other better people.  I like that things are cleared up between Ben and his family.    


This is the first book that I have read by Elizabeth Hayley.  I enjoyed the writing duo’s style. The ending was a good transition for Gabe’s story.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
