Add to Goodreads:


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…

Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.

From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.

But the Great Beast has other plans.

On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up…

What a delightful addition to the Elder Races Series!

Once again Pia and Dragos find themselves in a dire situation with an enemy from Dragos’ past.
Pia is kidnapped while pregnant with their second child.
What the kidnappers don’t realize is that you don’t mess with Dragos (The Great Beast) and you certainly don’t kidnap his pregnant mate.
He would burn the world to get her back and think nothing of it.
The stakes are high.
The story intense, and it had me on the edge of my seat until the very end.

I loved this story, and I loved seeing appearances from some of my favourite characters from previous books.

If your a fan of The Elder Races Series, then this is definitely a must-read.

The Varlet and the Voyeur (Rugby, #4) by Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway

The Varlet and the Voyeur (Rugby, #4)The Varlet and the Voyeur by L.H. Cosway





 photo VAV02.jpg

The Varlet and the Voyeur, an all-new standalone in the USA Today bestselling Rugby Series from Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway is coming June 14th!

He kept his salacious secret for years. But soon, everyone is going to be reading about it in their morning paper…


William Moore is a long way from home. A farm boy from Oklahoma, he’s now the most well-respected member of the Irish rugby team. But appearances are often deceptive, and Will isn’t the clean-cut, all-American good-guy everyone imagines him to be. He’s got a secret, one that will tarnish his reputation forever.


Joesy Kavanagh is a self-proclaimed mess, but she’s finally get her shi…uh, act together. She’s set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there’s one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Joesy homeless and in need of a job to pay her way through college.


What he needs is a companion to keep him on the right path.
What she needs is an apartment with free rent.
Will is convinced Joesy will make the perfect companion, since she’s brutally honest and basically ‘just one of the guys.’ Joesy is convinced she can ensure Will doesn’t succumb to his voyeuristic proclivities by keeping a scrupulous eye on him.
Except, what happens when the varlet is tempted by the voyeur, and vice-versa?!
Perchance something very, very volatile. And vexing.
The Varlet and the Voyeur is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the 4th(and last) book in the USA TODAY bestselling Rugby Series.

The Hookup (The Jordan Brothers, #1) by Erin McCarthy

The Hookup (The Jordan Brothers, #1)The Hookup by Erin McCarthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars




Publication Date: May 8, 2018

4- Stars!

This was not what I was expecting to read when I first picked up this book up.
I was expecting a light, fun, breezy hook-up story which I totally based my opinion upon from the cute cover.

THIS story actually knocked my socks off!

The main male protagonist, Cain carries a lot of anger and has a lot of issues, the main one being that he turns to alcohol to numb his feelings.
Cain admits and accepts that he’s an alcoholic and as the story progresses, the reader can sympathize with the reasons ‘why’ he drinks.
The author did a fantastic job of writing his character. She did not sugar-coat his alcoholism or how it affects his loved ones.

The female protagonist, Sophie is a genius who is socially awkward. She doesn’t read normal social cues, and is brutally, and logically honest in all her responses.
Unfortunately, she’s never felt or been made to feel accepted by her family or amongst her peers.

Somehow Cain and Sophie’s characters click.
They understand, accept, and are honest with each other, and what started out as a hook-up/fling soon becomes so much more.

Even though this wasn’t at all what I was expecting, I am glad I read this story.

Kiss the Girl (The Naughty Princess Club #3)

A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.
When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.
But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?

Who do you love?

The decent man you married?
The surgeon shattered during the war?
The emotionless Dominant who appears in his eyes more and more often?

All of them?

Even when he makes you beg?
Is there no pain or pleasure he cannot deliver?

What will you sacrifice to heal him?
Will he sacrifice his sanity to protect you from the exquisite torture of his cruel hands?

This is more than a marriage.
It’s a crack at the edges of the mind and heart.
It’s a promise written in the heavens and a wound splitting the sky.
Love may be the death of both of you.
