“God must’ve been in a really good mood when Mark had been conceived. Grossly unfair, but such was life.”
I adore Nadia Lee’s books. She almost makes me believe that rich men can be adorable, and can be capable of indulging and loving women that are independent, less than perfect, and not of their social class. And of course they are all successful, well-educated, handsome, well endowed, toned, and talented in bed. Alas, I think we need to change the genre to science fiction or fantasy, as that is not at all what occurs in the real world – but that is why we read books is it not? Ms. Lee delivers beautiful visuals, as if a movie reel is running in my head. Her writing is also emotive, I feel their embarrassment, humiliation, as well as their elation and relief. Alas, only one steamy sex scene in this novel – shucks. But there is plenty of drama and disappointments for our heroine, whose crazy family history makes my own seem much rosier in comparison. As always, I look forward to more of the story and will be anxiously awaiting her next book in the series, yet thankfully, no cliffhangers – as each can stand alone.
My next book Merry in Love (Hearts on the Line Book 6), a heart-warming holiday romance featuring Meredith Lloyd and her best friend’s sexy older brother Daniel Aylster, is scheduled for late October / early November, 2014.
You can preorder it right now from Apple. You can also add it to your Goodreads bookshelf if you’d like.

Charlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream.
Er . . . let’s try this again.
Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago.
Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . .
Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.
“If your face looked any more perplexed, you’d turn into a shar-pei.”
“I’m pretty much a bullshit – free zone. I don’t take it, I don’t give it, and quite frankly I want nothing to do with it. If I smell bullshit – I call it and leave the room.”
“You know that feeling you get when you meet someone you know will become a lifelong friend? Yeah – that’s the feeling I just got.”
I am new to Jacquelyn Ayres and I could kick myself for being so slow to arrive at the party. I absolutely love her writing style. It is as if my friends and I are talking over a glass of wine and recounting events. It is relaxed, wickedly funny, observant, casual, and oh so steamy. I resented any intrusion while I was reading. After fussing at me several times in attempts to get my attention, I actually huffed at my sweet little husband, and told him to “go away, just go away!” It wasn’t a predictable story, and I loved all the twists and turns and odd little characters, as life really is full of twists and turns and odd little characters. I immersed and indulged myself with this book and it was one of the most enjoyable days I can remember for months on end. It was actually just the right length but I do wish it went on a bit longer as I was enjoying the story so much. Do yourselves a favor and pick up a copy, you can thank me later.
I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn’t reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it’s my characters and not “the voices” . . . that would be creepy.
Title: Covered in Coal
Author: Silla Webb
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Carly Jo Simon believed that Colton Weston was her future, but he shattered her heart into tiny pieces. Just like any little girl would, she assumed her daddy would always be by her side. Unbelievably, he turned his back on her when she needed him most, leaving her with no one in her life to turn to for support. Without options, Carly runs away from the only home she’s ever known, leaving behind her heartache and the betrayal of the two men she loved most.
Seven years later, Carly reluctantly returns to Kentucky. Her daddy is dying of cancer and Colton is nothing like the boy she once loved and left. After her daddy passes, Carly must uproot her life in South Carolina and take control of Simon Coal Company, where she has no choice but face the pain of her past.
Can Carly keep her secrets buried deep beneath the black Kentucky coal and her heart safe from the fiery Colton Weston?
“When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far, no one can ever tear them apart. You are my infinity, my always, my forever.”
Swoon! My, oh my – that Colton is a sweet talker! I fell in love with him rather quickly, although in real life, he is the type of man I probably would have no interest in at all. This book was such a surprise to me on many levels. I didn’t expect it to be so emotionally intense and well written. I was such a happy camper. I consumed it as if I feared my brand new kindle would explode, I couldn’t put it down. I am not at all familiar with coal mining, the area, or their lifestyle, yet I was interested in each character and wanted to know their backstories and thoughts. I started getting tense when I could see I was near the end with no clear resolution in sight, then boom! The worst thing in the world happened to me… a monster cliffhanger. ARG! I hate cliffhangers more than cockroaches, mosquitoes, and biting ants… I despise them with the heat of a thousand suns… they are a cruel marketing ploy… an evil plot against the consumer… but damn it, I am hooked. I care about these characters and want to know what happens to them. Even though my TBR list is long and I have deadlines for other reviews, I find I am unwilling to start a new book as I don’t want to leave this one just yet. I continue to think about it days later. You are an evil genius Silla Webb – I shake my fist at you with one hand and blow kisses to you with the other. Sigh. Sign me up for the next installment – pretty please…
Author: Melody Grace
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Juliet McKenzie was an innocent eighteen-year old when she spent the summer in Beachwood Bay—and fell head over heels in love with Emerson. Complicated, intense Emerson, the local bad boy. His blue eyes hid dark secrets, and just one touch could set Juliet ablaze. Their love was demanding and all-consuming, but when summer ended, tragedy tore them apart. Juliet swore she’d never go back, and she’s kept that promise… Until now.
Four years later, Juliet’s done her best to rebuild the wreckage of her shattered life. She’s got a great boyfriend, and a steady job planned after she graduates. Returning to Beachwood to pack up her family’s beach house to prepare it for sale, Juliet is determined that nothing will stand in the way of her future. But one look from Emerson, and all her old desire comes flooding back. He let her go once, but this time, he’s not giving up without a fight. And Emerson fights dirty.
A heartbreaking history. An unstoppable passion. Torn between her past and future, Juliet struggles to separate love from desire. But will they find a way to overcome their tragic secrets—together? And after so much damage has been done, can a love remain unbroken?
*This book contains adult situations and explicit content.*
“After all, pretending is what my family does best. Dad pretends he’s not a washed up academic with one failed book to his name and a taste for vodka martinis at four p.m. My sister pretends she cares about more than landing herself a rich lawyer husband with a country club membership and a six-figure bonus. My mom pretends she doesn’t regret throwing her life away on a charming British writer, or notice his late night “advising” students at the office, and the disdain in his voice whenever he does remember to stumble home. “
“Then he smiles, a flash of something true and reckless, so darkly beautiful I feel my heart stop all over again. This is what they write stories about, I realize, as if from far away. All those books and movies and poems I’ve read, this is what they all were preparing me for, the day when a strange man smiles at me, and makes me forget who I am.”
This is undoubtedly one of the best books I have read in ages. It was well written and finely honed, with not one wasted sentence. I was interested and transfixed throughout. From the first paragraph to the last, this story had a constant thrum of emotion that was held and sustained on each page. The emotion varied in-depth and intensity, and ranged from regret, grief, and despair; to passion, lust, and finally – satisfaction. I was brought to tears several times. At the least, either melancholia or anxiety were almost nearly always present. Our heroine, Juliet, suffers from panic attacks and self-doubt, she lives with the constant tension she has endured from her family – of not measuring up, never being enough. – which has carried over into all her adult relationships. She grew up and lived in a family more concerned with appearing to be a family, than with actually trying to be one. At age 18 she finds her first love and thinks he’s, “the one,” as she finally feels relaxed and accepted, so she is doubly devastated when it ends. Running into her epic love four years later proves she hasn’t deal with it as well as she thought, but the complications provide a second chance, and some smoking hot sex scenes. Epic love is an interesting concept, second chance at romance is a favorite theme for me, and toss in lots of steam… it was perfection! Melody Grace has a new fan girl!

Title: John Dreamer
Author: Elise Celine
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Andy wasn’t usually sure about much, but she was absolutely certain this was the weirdest day of her life as she stood stranded in the middle of a great white room with six strangers. Well, they were mostly strangers. She could have sworn she’d seen the guy with the green eyes before, and maybe that was why he kept staring at her.
When a man calling himself the Guardian appeared and said they had come to make their deepest dreams come true, they embark on an adventure none of them ever imagined, and the consequences of their actions would change them forever.
“John Dreamer” is the first in a series of books set in the confines of the Great White Room.
“I walked around again, and had the odd feeling that the place was moving along with me. Every time I tried to get to the other side, the way became longer; if I retraced my steps, I returned to the same spot. Was I in some sort of institution? I felt completely sane, even though everything around me seemed daft. I wanted a mirror so I could see my face. I needed that sense of self.”
As I read this book I complained bitterly to my husband that it was frustrating me, I just wasn’t “getting it!” I felt dense and inadequate, those mind prickling and anxious feelings of self-doubt, that I really don’t like to experience, were cluttering my head. But I had committed to doing a review, so I kept plodding along at it, annoyed with the book and annoyed with myself. The characters in the book were also frustrated and confused, so I was not alone in my distress. Mid-way through, I started finding little jewels and kernels of insight or observations… hmm. But I worried it was merely a fluke, as the story went off again in some weird direction, reminiscent of 60’s movie scenes about a bad acid trip. Yet the book was well written and tightly edited, so why was I having such a problem? Not until the very end of the book, did I realize what a profound and beautiful story it actually was. I was somewhat moved and had to read the last chapter one more time to make sure I really did “get it” and huzzah! I did! I felt so proud, yet was so relieved to be done, and had no desire to read it again. Phew, my college degrees were not wasted after all!
So now I face a dilemma, do I recommend it to our readers? I was frustrated and rankled most of the way through – but it actually was a beautiful story at the end. I have pondered this for days… I have decided not to decide, and will leave that responsibility up to you. Hmm, with decisions like that, I think I might just have a bright future in politics!

“Devil!” Molly squealed, gripping his neck as he hauled her into his arms and turned toward the stairs. “What are you doing?”
“If you think that I’m going to make love to you for the first time on the living room sofa, you have drastically underestimated me,” he replied, taking the steps two at a time.
Molly gripped his shoulders as he carried her like she weighed nothing more than a bag of flour. Swallowing hard as her heartbeat sped up, she suddenly realized that this was really happening between them. Dozens of doubts flooded her mind, but every single one of them fled as he walked into his spacious bedroom and placed her in the center of his huge bed.
Licking her lips as she watched him kick off his shoes and push his slacks down over his lean hips, she caught her breath. His body was ripped perfection. Toned well muscled arms, hard lickable six pack, firm thighs… and the longest, thickest cock she’d ever seen in her life. Letting her eyes drift over him again, she blinked as she noticed a small tattoo just above his hip. “You’ve got a tat?” she asked, sitting up on the bed so that she could caress the small Celtic cross that he had on his skin. “Straight laced, serious Devil Delancy did something daring?” she teased, peeking up at him through her lowered lashes.
Chuckling, he brushed his fingers against her jaw as her fingertips traced the cross on his hip. “One very drunken night in college a very long time ago.”
“It’s pretty,” she praised, leaning into his hand as she noticed his bobbing cock close to her lips.
Following her gaze, his lips curved wickedly. “I really hope you’re talking about the tat and not my dick, sweetheart.”
“Hmmmm,” she hummed, pressing a finger to her lips as she considered both.
“You are truly hell on a man’s confidence, Molly Ramsey,” he growled, gazing down at her as she smiled up at him.
“As far as I know, confidence has never been an attribute you lacked,” Molly replied with a giggle, lifting one hand to caress him again. “But if you really need to have your ego stroked, I’ll do my best to comply,” she promised softly. His low groan of approval emboldened her and she slowly brought him to her mouth, brushing her lips lightly against the flushed head of his cock. Inhaling deeply, she gazed at his sizeable arousal and shivered as she thought about him filling her. Darting her tongue out to sweep against his tip, she heard his harsh indrawn breath.
