"A New Leash on Love" [Rescue Me Series, Book 1] by Debbie Burns

Author's Book Description : You can't buy love...but you can rescue it.

With her no-kill animal shelter at risk of losing funding, Megan Anderson is working doggedly to save the animals in her care. She'll do anything for them—even go toe-to-toe with a handsome man who's in way over his head.

Craig Williams has had his share of heartache recently, and he's not in the mood to get the guilt trip from a spirited (and beautiful) animal shelter owner. But the more time they spend together, the more he realizes it's not just animals Megan is adept at saving—she could be the one to rescue his heart.

Soon, Craig and Megan find that the magic of unconditional love can do anything...even lead to their forever home.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! A man (Craig) who is still coming to terms with the devastating loss that happened in his life years ago takes his daughter’s puppy to a local animal shelter at the wishes of said daughter and his ex-wife. From that moment on his life becomes unexpectedly intertwined with Megan, the Director of the animal shelter. Yet, especially with them both being so different, are they ready to try making something of their budding relationship or will fate take the choice out of their hands?

As a war widow, she's lost everything–her husband, her home, and her job. But when Will, a caring stranger, delivers her beautiful baby boy into her arms, she has hope for a brighter future.

After being betrayed and dumped by his long-time girlfriend, Will’s dreading the holidays, but when he helps deliver Mia’s son on Christmas morning, he gains a renewed purpose in life.

"Sicilian's Baby of Shame" [Billionaires & One-Night Heirs Series, Book 3] by Carol Marinelli

Author's Book Description : Seduced...

When hotel chambermaid Sophie delivers room service to Sicily’s most dark-hearted tycoon, Bastiano Conti, his raw sexuality tempts her to take the ultimate risk—surrendering her untouched body to his!

Shamed...

Bastiano’s ruthlessness is renowned, but even his conscience flickers when Sophie is fired for their indiscretion—the memories of which are branded onto his very soul—and disappears.

Pregnant!

Bastiano finds Sophie working in a bar—disgraced, destitute and pregnant! Rejected by his own family, Bastiano is determined to claim his child...by seducing defiant Sophie into wearing his ring!

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! This novel follows the same plot that Ms. Marinelli’s “The Innocent’s Secret Baby” did. Only this time the main male lead is Raul’s nemesis Bastiano. We follow how Bastiano has dealt with his past experiences and we FINALLY learn the truth about EVERYTHING. And within the midst of all of that, we watch as he starts a partial relationship with Sophie and how everything enfolds between them. Do they have the beginnings of something wonderful together or will it end in shambles too?

"Secrets of a Billionaire's Mistress" [One Night With Consequences Series] by Sharon Kendrick

Author's Book Description : Waitress...

Neither tall, willowy nor sophisticated, waitress Darcy Denton knew she wasn't Renzo Sabatini's usual type. But enthralled by the powerful magnate, unworldly Darcy became addicted to their passionate nights together.

Mistress...

Ensconced in Renzo's secluded Tuscan villa, Darcy glimpses Renzo's troubled past and desolate soul. She should end it before she gets in too deep, but then she discovers she's pregnant!

Wife?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Though from the outside-looking-in Renzo and Darcy look like an odd pairing. And with their backgrounds I would tend to agree. Yet, their connection is intense and undeniable. Though will their connection be enough to overcome everything from their pasts, especially when someone from Darcy’s own past threatens to destroy everything that she holds dear...

"The Sheikh's Unruly Lover" [Almasi Sheikhs Series, Book 2] by Leslie North

Author's Book Description : Following a recent merger, American executive assistant Marian is sent overseas to meet with her company’s new Arab business partner. But once Marian sees who she’ll be working with—the handsome Sheikh Omar Almasi—she’s instantly wary of his good looks and brooding demeanor. When circumstances force her to step into her boss’ shoes, Marian is more than ready to prove she should be taken seriously...even if it means working side by side with the surly, sexy sheikh.

Two years after losing his wife to cancer, Omar is more driven than ever in his family’s oil business. He opposed the merger with the US tech firm, and now that it’s done, he refuses to compromise himself for corporate Americans. But Omar is caught off guard when he meets beautiful, business-savvy Marian. The woman drives him wild with her stubborn determination and her distracting allure. He’s never had to work so closely with someone so…feminine, and the more time they spend together, the more he has to fight his impulses.

Soon their attraction is undeniable, but with the wound of his wife’s death still not healed, Omar may never be ready to move on…unless Marian can show him how to love again.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Will Marian & Omar be able to move on from their misgivings to negotiate a good deal or will everything fall apart, just as they try to get their bliss?

"Chance of a Lifetime" [Anderson Brothers Series, Book 3] by Marissa Clarke

Author's Book Description : Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe...

Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.

Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.

Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars. About ten years ago, a stupid mistake landed Gen (Genny/Genevieve) into the hospital and forced her best friend away from her. Now, she seems to finally be moving on with her life and after a surprising accident that led to a co-worker dying, Gen wants to complete the bucket list that she created when she was fifteen. Yet, the same day that she pushes forth with moving on who happens to waltz back into her life? Why her old best friend and crush, Chance, of course! Will she be able to prove to him once-and-for-all what a bad decision he made way-back-when or will he show her that what happened ten years ago isn’t what it actually seemed? Stay tuned!

"No Substitute" by Susan Diane Johnson

What was I thinking? : I have enjoyed other christian romance novels. I liked this novel's cover and its book description made it sound like a novel I would typically enjoy.

Author's Book Description : Former high-school sweethearts, thrown together by a matchmaking teenager, must forgive to find love.

Amy Welsh knew when she came back to the small Washington town of Goose Bay she'd eventually run into her high school sweetheart—the one who broke her heart seventeen years ago.

No longer the teenage boy she remembered, Quentin Macmillan could potentially be everything Amy's ever dreamed of. As she lets him into her life, the hurt she's tried to ignore resurfaces. Forgiveness isn't as simple—or easy—as it sounds, especially after Quentin and Amy discover his teenage daughter has been manipulating their feelings.

Will Amy open her heart to healing, and find the future God has prepared for her?

My Book Review : I'm going to be straight with you, I was not a fan of this novel. Now I'm going to put my professional hat on and TRY to nicely explain to you my view point about it. Yet, it can be hard to do so without ranting a bit so if you want to skip this section that’s okay.

1.5 out of 5 stars. A woman goes back to the town she lived in as a teen in hopes of overcoming her past and the man who left her behind. Yet, what she finds is a yearning for more still ... will she get what she yearns for or finally move on with her life.

"The Bull Rider and the Baby" [The Skirts and Spurs Trilogy, Book 2] by Jeanine McAdam

Author's Book Description : Sexy bull rider Caleb Cooper keeps falling off his bull and hitting his head. Smart neuroscience graduate student Carrie Wang is studying him. There’s just one problem, Carrie’s attracted to her broad-shouldered research subject. But she shouldn’t be, because Carrie is pregnant with Charles Winston’s baby. However, that one-night-stand occurred in a beaker closet and Charles wants nothing to do with her or the child.

Besides being handsome in a long-haired, scruffy sort-of-way, Caleb Cooper is kind and quirky. Carrie can’t stop touching him and their unprofessional attraction is mutual. Problems abound when Carrie’s traditional Chinese mother and Charles come to the rodeo. Carrie’s mother wants her to hook a husband and Charles wants Carrie to give the baby up for adoption. Carrie knows she could never let a stranger raise her child. Can Carrie go against everyone’s wishes and raise the baby on her own? Or could Caleb become a father to this child?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Carrie has grown up doing everything her mother asked. Though that all changed one night when her lab was having a party. Now she is a pregnant woman trying to find out what would be the right thing for her. With nowhere to turn, she takes a job as a “concussion researcher” for the Bull Riders Association in hopes of getting “away” from everything to get a handle on her life. What she doesn’t expect is a handsome cowboy rescuing her along the way...

Too bad what’s noticeable is Dane’s obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family’s politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane’s mother is about to face Lucia’s father in the race for US President.

"Falling for the Billionaire Wolf and His Baby" [Blood Moon Brotherhood Series, Book 1] by Sasha Summers

Author's Book Description : When Jessa Talbot’s boss offered her a promotion, she agreed—no questions asked. Her family needed the money, but fighting the attraction she feels for her brooding employer is tough. Worse, she instantly bonds with his infant son she’s caring for. But this is a temporary solution and she can’t get attached to either of them.

Finnegan Dean is cursed. He’s a nicely dressed monster, the wolf inside always looking for a way out. But there are two things he and his wolf agree on. They must protect baby Oscar and Jessa—his mate. While the wolf hungers to seal their bond, Finn fights the instinct. After all, if he really cares for her, he’d never doom her to the life he lives.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. After dealing with the “curse” of being a werewolf and leading his “pack” of friends over the past ten years, Finn (Finnegan/Oscar Finnegan Dean the Third) finds out that he is unexpectedly a father and that the mother of his child is dead all in one surprising blow. Therefore, in the process of “picking up his life,” he interviews (within his company) for the perfect caretaker for his newborn son and finds it in Jessa. Not only is she the perfect woman to care for his son … she may just mean something more to him all together. And if only everyone will stop threatening him and those he cares about, than he might just be able to figure out how to keep Jessa in his life permanently.

"Lover Awakened" [Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, Book 3] by J. R. Ward

Author's Book Description : #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward’s ferociously inventive series continues as the most fearsome member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood discovers just how tempting the night can be...

A former blood slave, Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the Brother’s seething power. Except even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against her abductor drives him to the brink of madness. Now Bella must help her lover not only overcome the wounds of his tortured past, but find a future with her...

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars ... we follow the series into Bella and Z’s (Zsadist) lives. These two had a very strong connection that neither truly understood before their novel begun. Now, in this novel, they learn their “true feelings” for one another while they deal with their pasts, manage the current predicaments they are caught in, and figure out their futures. Yet with the world wanting to tear them apart will they be able to overcome everything AND be able to stay together once everything settles down?
