This great combo from bestselling authors: Lora Leigh and Jaci Burton is a must have for the summer.

Nauti and Wild

Nauti Kisses is the finale in the Nauti series by bestselling author Lora Leigh. I believe Lora ended the series well with this short story. Her characters as always come alive, and take you on uncharted waters.

John Walker and Sierra Lucas have known each other forever. John’s father is her godfather. She has always been a temptation to John, but as temping and alluring as she is, he has never crossed that line. She is too gentle and good for him.

Sierra feared John was going to make the biggest mistake of his life, by marrying his fiancé. She will make sure that John knows what type of woman he is engaged too. It takes just one night, and Sierra changes everything, including her relationship with John.

John has realized he has never been happy living in Boston. When his engagement comes to an end, it’s the perfect time for him to start his life over in the Kentucky mountains. He will finally find peace on the water, there is only one thing missing …Sierra.

A brutal attack has left Sierra vulnerable and scared. John has just found out about the attack and will stop at nothing to keep her safe. The feelings John and Sierra carry for each other will begin to blossom during dangerous times

This is a great ending to a wonderful series by Lora Leigh.

I give this short story a 3/5.


Favorite Quote: “ I remembered”, he swore,staring down at her as she fought to believe him. “I was drunk as hell, baby, it just took time, but nothing that important nothing that special to me could have been forgotten for long.” (John)

Riding the Edge is from bestselling author Jaci Burton.

Rick Benetti has been sent on assignment to join up with the Hellraisers once again, to protect the daughter of a senator. He knew the dangers of walking back into his old life again, but he didn’t anticipate the danger Ava Vargas would pose for him.

Ava Vargas has just finished her masters degree in psychology and plans on getting her PhD, but a lifelong friendship takes priority. Ava is worried about her friend Lacey. Lacey has left everything behind to become a Hellraisers’ babe. She has changed and Ava is worried, there has to be something wrong with her. Ava intends to find out the situation is,

Rick and Ava steam up the pages in story. Get ready to get all bothered by these two.

I always feel like I’m the one riding on the backs of those great bikes, while having my arms wrapped around one of Wild hunks.

I give this book a 3/5.


Favorite Quote: “For the first time in my life, I want to fill a house with warmth and love and I have you to thank for that.” (Ava)

Lydia Dare’s series Westfield Hall is a super historical with a paranormal twist.

The only course of action is to bring Oliver to live at Westfield Hall. There is only one small problem, the young Oliver will not unless his Aunt Lily is allowed to reside there as well.

Mind-blowing! Fantastic! Scrumptious!


The Moonlight series is on fire!!!

Nancy Gideon’s Captured by Moonlight delivers it all!

Max Savoie has taken over former mob boss, Jimmy Legere’s empire in New Orleans. His plans are to eventually make all the corporation’s dealings legal. Many fear him, but those who know him respect and care for him. There are those that want the empire Max has inherited. He has become a savior for many, yet there is only one person that can save him, Charlotte Caissie.

Charlotte Caissie is a New Orleans detective. She only feels safe and complete in the arms of Max Savoie. Even though everyone frowns upon the relationship, Charlotte will stand by Max’s side, come hell or high water. He is what her heart desires.

One of Max’s own has been killed and has begun a chain of events that will unveil the answers he needs, to protect the ones he loves. He has become tense, agitated, and aggressive. He can’t explain the feelings and thoughts he’s having, but they seem to be intensified by Charlotte.

Charlotte is afraid of losing Max. There is only one way she can keep him, and no one has ever attempted it. Everyone tells her it will be impossible, she could die. She yearns to belong to Max, permanently and forever. Will she be strong enough to do what has to be done? Does Max still want her and only her?

Max believed he no longer had a family, especially with the death of his father. Now, he’s come to face to face with a small boy that will change everything.

When little Ozzy is abducted by the deadly men Max is trying to find, he will have answers he has been searching for. He must save Ozzy, and as always Charlotte has is back. He will give his life to save Ozzy, yet he hadn’t counted on Charlotte doing the same.

Captured by Moonlight is the third book in the Moonlight series.I found this book to be heavenly. The sex was hot, hot! Max is the alpha male we all dream of. Nancy Gideon has left me yearning for the next book in the series.

Do I hear wedding bells? Will there be a baby? Don’t ask me, I’m as clueless as the rest of you guys, and dying to find out!!!

I give this book 4/5
