Oh this is book two in this duet, one I was really looking forward to and what a story it is so heart-warming and moving you see Princess/Dr Beatrice di-Jesolo gave up the man that she loved to keep her mother happy and follow in the Italian royal traditions and marry another royal but that didn’t turn out the way it was planned and now Bea finds herself pregnant and alone so she tries to disguise herself and get some work at a clinic in the Italian mountains and who would be working there as well none other than paediatrician Jamie Coutts the man who still has her heart two years later.

Bea has been through a tough time in the last two years but even more so now you see she has never stopped feeling guilty for what she did to Jamie and that spark is still there, life has changed and there is another person to think of now and this baby must be her top priority but maybe they can be friends at work.

Jamie is shocked when he sees Bea at the clinic the spark is instantaneous, he should still be angry with her for what she did to him but after spending time with the monks it has helped him a little. But the longer they are working together the more his heart is opening and when a bad accident has them saving patients he realizes there are a few changes with Bea, and he is willing risk his heart again.

This is a beautifully written second chance romance that ticks all of the boxes for a fabulous medical gorgeous setting, strong and beautiful heroine and a hero who is just to die for. MS O’Neil really knows how to pull at the heart-strings and show such depth and love in her characters, I do enjoy her stories and this one is a beauty, one not to be missed.

The Marriage of Inconvenience by Nina   Singh

Reviewed by Helen

Well this one is a lovely story of second chance romance and the first book I have read of MS Singh’s and I look forward to many more, she has a beautiful writing voice that brings out the emotions and feeling that two people can keep hidden for a long time. Sit back and enjoy this trip to the lovely tea plantation and the blooms that help make tea and bring Angel and RJ back together.

Angeline Scott comes from a rich Boston family and has been used to the best of everything but in college she meets a boy RJ Davet from the other side of the tracks but for Angel that is not a problem because she has fallen for him deeply and quickly, they marry and she is disowned by her father, but for a time they are very happy and Angel starts up her own business TeaLC and RJ has his own company but this pulls them apart and they separate. Years later Angel needs RJ’s help to get a new contract will he help?

RJ has never felt good enough for the beautiful Angel who is a true Angel in his eyes but guilt about pulling her away from her father the only family she has, has built a wedge between them, he has now built up his company and is doing really well, so when she gets in contact with him to ask him to pretend to be her loving husband (seeing as how they have never divorced) for a few days to help her get a contract he tries other ways to help unsuccessfully he is not sure that he can be that close to her you see he has never stopped loving her.

This trip together is the best for both, RJ has such a hard time believing that he can be good enough for Angel and Angel has never felt that way she has always been very proud of how RJ has built himself up and for the honest and caring person he is and she does everything to convince him. Really this is a beautiful sensual and moving story that had me turning the pages this is one that I highly recommend and I sense another story involving both RJ and Angel’s off siders here’s hoping. Thank you MS Singh for a fabulous story

Hot Valor by Lynn Raye Harris - A Hostile Operations Team Novel #11

Review by TashNz - 5 Stars

Mendez's long awaited story is high octane with a side of jet fuel to blast the reader into the stratosphere of readers heaven.  On the edge of my seat the only thing that made me put this story down was a bad case of a cold. 

Every range of emotions were met by Lynn.  I felt Mendez's anger when he learnt the truth, his joy at the end, his helplessness when he was lost to Kat and his calm speed he high tailed it at the beginning. 

Fast paced adventure, well loved characters and a glimpse into the life and feelings of a fiercely private man helped shape Hot Valor. I understood Kat and what made her tick. I was convinced her and Mendez were meant to be and I thought Lynn did a fantastic job explaining time and I loved the idea that true love wins in the end.

Thank you Lynn for number 11. May they keep rolling in, I truly love through HOT series.

Give me a Greek hero and I am in, and in I was for this story we met Emily and Loukas in MS Milburne’s last book Wedding Night with her Enemy where they had one very sensual night together that left Emily pregnant and now we journey with them to a very gorgeous HEA but of course there are a few ups and downs along the way but a very sensual journey as well I highly recommend that you sit an back and enjoy.

I fell for Loukas right from the start he is such a vulnerable hero after what he has been through in his life he is so scared of loving for fear of hurting people and one night stands is what he does that is until he meets Emily at his best friend’s wedding and for some reason that he cannot fathom he wants her again, but when he arrives to pick her up for dinner Emily is a bundle of nerves and the reason why is discovered and how it is discovered will have you smiling.

Emily is the typical girl next door for me lovable, caring and she wants love and the whole kit when she marries puppy as well you see she is an only child to a single mother and that is not what she wants for herself or her child, so when Loukas basically demands that they marry this rocks her and there is a battle of wills for them both and internally for Emily. But falling for him happens very fast but how can she get that love in return?

This is one of those stories that you will pick up and not want to put down beautifully written it shows how a proud and aloof billionaire falls for the gorgeous happy and fun secretary and the joy that can be found when the right key to a heart is be found. Thank you MS Milburne for another keeper a story that will stay with me for a long time, this one did leave me smiling.

MS Lacey has bought us another fabulous story in this series I really do enjoy visiting the town of Cedar River and this one is such a feel good emotional and so very honest story of love and caring that really left me with a huge smile, sit back enjoy Ash McCune’s story she is the police office come rancher that helps out troubled and orphaned kids and she certainly meets the best man for her in ex Nascar driver Cole Quartermaine.

Ash lives a busy but rewarding life in the town she grew up in she has her mother and uncle for support and help with her son Jaye and the kids she fosters and a relationship is not what she is looking for, you see she has been abandoned by all of the men in her life father step father Jaye’s father but she has now agreed to help out a friend of a friend Cole Quartermaine and his troubled 14 year old daughter Maisy and Ash’s life is about to change.

Cole was a champion Nascar driver until an accident changed all of that he still works with the family car racing team and has been through a divorce and is happily single and he has only just met his daughter never knowing he had one and Maisy is causing a few problems for him, so he takes her off to the country to try and get to know her and help her, but what he finds is a loving family and a beautiful caring woman that he can’t help falling for.

Starting a relationship can be hard at times and with kids involved even harder to keep those feeling under control and MS Lacey has done it so well this really is a moving gorgeous story one that will have you shedding a few tears but boy you will be sighing and smiling I fell for Cole as quickly as Ash did he is just the most honest hero I have ever met and Ash so vulnerable but so strong and they really deserve and need each other so badly but so do the kids who play a big part in this story. I do highly recommend this one sit back and enjoy.

This is a truly beautiful story I did shed a few tears but gee I smiled a lot as well, this one is beautifully written and is a magical story of what happens when two people meet after they lose someone very close to them both. Yes there is guilt on both parties but they know that, that one person who meant so much to them would be thrilled for them both, so sit back and enjoy this story I am sure you are going to love Major Matt Galloway and Dr Brooke Bailey and their family.

Brooke is a single Mum and is returning to work in the A&E at The London Grace Hospital after her maternity leave and she knows it is going to be hard as her best friend Jen is no longer there to be there for her and leaving her baby daughter Morgan for the first time is hard. Brooke never expects that her new boss is none other than Jen’s husband Matt and although they have never met before they do know a lot about each other and there is a connection instantly.

Matt loves his daughter Lily being a single Dad is not easy but the loss of his wife in childbirth has rocked him and he has decided that he will do as much as his wife Jen wanted for her and working at the hospital Jen did is a start, then getting to know her best friend Brooke is something else that he can do he is determined to help Brooke anyway he can as Jen wished. Oh but this is causing an attack of the guilt’s as he feels the sensual pull to Brooke.

I don’t want to say too much more about this story except that it is a must read and it was such a joy to read MS Heaton brings the emotions and love to life the characters are so alive and true, If you have never read a Louisa Heaton book then I highly recommend reading them they really will make you feel so good when you get to the end, this one ticks all of the boxes for a fabulous medical romance.
