A Dream of Desire
by Nina Rowan

                       

With its Dickensian backdrop, suspense, passion and edge-of- seat danger, Rowan’s latest is a thought-provoking romance that forces readers to see the darkness under the glittering world of wealth and title. Strong characters and a taut plotline keep readers engrossed as Rowan builds the tension to a perfect pitch before leading Talia and James to the HEA.

Take My Breath Away
by Christie Ridgway

                        

What an awesome start to the Cabin Fever series! Ridgway’s latest is heartwarming, extremely romantic and one of those books that will make you feel tingly all over. The alpha hero is smoking hot and he lingers on one’s mind longer than expected. Readers may be surprised at how close in similarity the characters are to themselves or their friends. Take My Breath Away is an all-around great read that will have you wishing you were curled up by the fire in a mountainside cabin.

Deeper Than Need
by Shiloh Walker

           

This is a novel full of tension: There is lots of sexual tension, which makes the romance more real, and there is the tension of a slowly revealed evil, which lurks beneath, bubbling under the entire plotline. The characters lack some of the crystallized focus that is so lovely in many of Walker’s works, but this is book one in a series, so we can expect more details later.

Excerpt Break: Then Came You By Jill Shalvis

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 08, 2014 | PERMALINK

The cover of THen Came You by Jill ShalvisWe don't know about you, but we need an excerpt break. Today we've got a flirty scene from Then Came You by Jill Shalvis, the latest in her Animal Magnetism series. Slightly awkward veterinary intern Emily hasn't stopped thinking about the amazing one-night-stand she had with vet Wyatt, who just happens to be her new boss. In this scene Wyatt gives Emily a ride home, and despite Wyatt's alpha peronality, it's Emily making the first move. Enjoy!

Wyatt wrapped his fingers around Emily’s wrist and turned back to his truck.

“Hey. Hey,” she said, tapping him on the shoulder to slow him down. “What are you doing?”

“I’m driving you home.” He hustled her back up into the truck’s passenger seat.

“I can’t ask you to—“

How Deployed U.S. Troops Celebrate The Fourth - And How Readers Can Give Back

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, JULY 03, 2014 | PERMALINK

source: Kim Lowe

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and fireworks! July 4 is the pinnacle of summer vacation, bringing families together to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day. Military personnel in far-flung places will also celebrate July 4th, although it may not be the traditional barbecue. I asked Tamara Argyle — a Navy surgeon, avid reader and aspiring author — about her holiday experience while deployed to a remote location in Afghanistan. Tamara shared that the international coalition was used to shelling overnight. But the insurgents rocketed them all day on July 4th, thus requiring them to wear full body armor even in the mess tent, giving new meaning to:

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

They were rewarded with a special dinner hosted by the Australian contingent who staffed the mess tent. Tamara enjoyed steak, corn-on-the cob and watermelon, bringing a little taste of home for the US troops.
