Review – His Christmas Gift by Sarah Mayberry

His Christmas Gift was such a pleasant surprise. I was thrilled when I found out that it was Jenna and Sawyer’s story and was really looking forward to finding out what really happened between them. Sarah Mayberry really made getting the chicken pox fun! ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures

Since tragedy estranged defense attorney Jenna Macintosh from her family, she’s done her best to pretend Christmas doesn’t exist. Not so easy this year when she needs to work with client Lacey Gallagher, who is living on her brother Sawyer’s Christmas tree farm. All those fragrant pines dripping with twinkling lights are bad enough, but when disaster strikes, Jenna is stuck alone in a wooded cabin with Sawyer, the hottest man she’s ever met.

Experience has taught Sawyer Gallagher that smart city women like Jenna don’t want men like him, but when Jenna falls ill, he must abandon his plan to keep his distance and soon he’s trying to work out ways to make her his—and not just for Christmas.

ARC Review – Once Touched (Silver Creek #3) by Laura Moore

Oh how I love a happy ending and how two hurting individuals help heal one another. This story truly combined tenderness, heartache and some sultry sex to create a beautiful love story for Ethan and Quinn. ~ Amanda, Guilty Pleasures

The youngest of the three Knowles siblings, Quinn has in her blood the love of the land and its beautiful creatures. Raising enough money to build an animal sanctuary is a dream Quinn lives every day—while fending off her family’s well-intentioned matchmaking schemes. Though harboring secret fears about intimacy, Quinn soon realizes she cannot fight her growing attraction to a man who has suddenly entered her life.

Scarred by his months in Afghanistan and the violence he witnessed there through his camera lens, photojournalist Ethan Saunders throws himself into hard ranching work as a prescription for healing. But falling for Quinn has given him the one thing he thought he’d lost forever: hope. Ethan discovers that Quinn, like the innocent animals she rescues, is shy, and afraid of entrusting her heart to a man. Passion soon awakens Ethan’s strength, and his tender seduction may be just what Quinn needs to believe in herself—and in his love.

Review – Secrets and High Spirits (Secrets #4) by Lou Harper

Secrets and High Spirits does not live up to its predecessors. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures 

Their love is an explosive cocktail—stirred, shaken, and served with a twist.

Teag and Bruce dream of opening their own bars, but that’s where the similarities end.

Teag, a popular bartender at West Hollywood’s hottest club, is willful, opinionated, and likes to take charge. He envisions his future bar as a boozy oasis for craft cocktails. Unfortunately, while he’s big on ideas, he’s short on funds.

Bruce, on the other hand, is a tower of pirate-tattooed muscle with a laid-back attitude. While he’s good with people, he’s a walking paradox—a wannabe boss with a weakness for bossy men.

Their partnership is a natural fit, but every time they meet, sparks fly as they rub each other the wrong way. Or is it the right way? In the heat of the moment, it’s hard to tell.

Between renovation pitfalls, meddling friends, and miles of police tape, Teag and Bruce struggle Read the rest of this entry »

Review – Three Nights before Christmas (Montana Born Christmas) by Kat Latham

I was really blown away by this story. I had no idea where the story was going to go. I was so surprised and thrilled with the way Kat Latham brought the characters full circle. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

Have yourself a steamy little Christmas…

After three years in prison, freight train engineer Lacey Gallagher doesn’t expect this Christmas to be very merry and bright. At least chopping down trees for her brother’s Christmas tree farm will help her save money to get her life back on track. All her plans derail, though, when her new job puts her in territory patrolled by the man who haunts her dreams—the forest ranger who sent her to prison.

Austin Wilder isn’t thrilled about Lacey working in his forest—but he soon realizes he needs her help. His family is depending on him to restore an old steam train for a spectacular Christmas event, and train expert Lacey is his only hope of finishing in time.

Working together challenges every assumption Lacey and Austin have about each other, and they discover a desire hot enough to melt even the deepest Montana snow. But will the season of second chances be enough to mend the most hardened broken heart?

Review – A Christmas Homecoming by Melissa McClone

Melissa McClone really put the spirit of Christmas into this book. She wrote interesting characters that embodied both the spirt of Christmas and Scrooge. She made them fun and really brought out their personalities. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

A kiss is just a kiss…

ARC Review – Just Married Again: A Romantic Comedy by Charlotte Hughes

This story was a sweet treat about finding out what is truly important in life. It had just a little sugar, just a little spice, and the right amount of truthfulness to make it perfect. ~ Leigh, Guilty Pleasures 

Hilarious Second Chance at Love…

The last person Maddy Kelly expects to show up at her mountain cabin for the holidays is her soon-to-be ex-husband, who was always too busy to enjoy their hideaway. Following doctor’s orders to reduce stress, Michael arrives at their remote cabin, unannounced and unexpected, in the dead of night, during a snow storm. Which is why Maddy greets him with a fire poker to the head, rendering him unconscious, and with a case of temporary amnesia. As his memory returns, Michael realizes how much he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get her back, even if it means pretending to still have amnesia.

Add to the mix Michael’s mischievous 13-year-old nephew, who has stowed away in Michael’s car, and Maddy’s two dachshunds who take an instant disliking to Michael, and you have a laugh-out-loud recipe for a romantic romp.
