This story is hot, steamy and fabulous, this one will have you grabbing a fan and a tall glass of water as hero Gideon Novak sets out to help friend Lucy Baudin find a husband and give her lessons in seduction or does Lucy end up seducing Gideon, this is a one sitting read you will not want to put it down.

Gideon works as a head hunter and is very good at his job he is not a party animal he has a few friends and when one from the past, one that he has never forgotten asks to meet with him and then asks him to help her find a husband of convenience and to help her with the finer points of sex and seduction he is gobsmacked, you see his feelings for his friend have always been strong and he feels a lot of guilt over what happened with her ex one of his friends so all he can do is say yes even though he knows he should be saying no.

Lucy has thrown herself into her job as a defence attorney after the break-up with her fiancé, she pulled herself away from her friends and has not had sex, but now she wants a promotion at work and being married will help, who better than to help but her old friend Gideon and the sizzling heat that sparks between them is not to be pushed away, as Lucy becomes the seductress and her fantasies are met.

This is a delicious story that had me turning the pages, I fell for Gideon right from the start he is so caring and gorgeous and will go out of his way to protect Lucy and it was taking a lot for him to control his feelings for her and seeing him open up to her in so many ways was awesome, and Lucy wow she is a lot stronger than she thinks and her prowess in the bedroom is a strong as in the courtroom I loved seeing her stand up to Gideon. MS Robert has written a story with fabulous dialogue and a connection between Gideon and Lucy that will leave the reader smiling, I highly recommend this one.

WOW two complete opposites go head to head in this steamy, hot, erotic story, bought together through rival MC gangs they are now egging each other on and losing their hearts to each other even if it was the last thing they thought could possibly happen.

Evie Kent runs a company that plans and holds kids party specifically little girls princess parties, she works hard after building herself up from a pretty lousy childhood she has a young brother whom she has bought up and still feels responsible for, only Rocker has followed in their father’s footsteps and is in a MC club and is in trouble. This brings in Rev, Jaxon Brady from and rival MC and the sparks fly.

Rev loves his MC family and they are everything to him he is tough and an ex SEAL so when he meets the gorgeous Evie while trying to fix a wrong, his blood heats up this woman gets under his skin in no time at all, and he is determined to have her one way or another.

Evie is strong, bossy and a smart arse at times she has an answer for everything and Rev wants her and her body and he will not give up, his leathers are defiantly a match for her princess outfits and his Harley for her pink RV, the sex is hot and steamy as is the dialogue, as they both journey to a HEA that has lots of ups and downs, there is danger and there is lust and passion. I am enjoying this new line from Harlequin and can recommend this one if you like your stories with a bit of heat and a punch.

When reading this book and I do recommend that you do make sure that you have a fan and some cooling water at the ready because it is one steamy, hot, sensual story that will have you turning the pages to find out how Libby and Alex journey to their HEA.

Libby Noble runs a marketing business in New York she has worked hard to get where she is today and has been hurt by love and men who tend to live in the exciting fast lane, so it is work and work only for Libby, but when she is invited to London to do a talk she meets a man who is about to change her life actually bring her back to life, but it has to be on her terms she will make the rules this time and what rules they are they knock him for a six.

Alex Lancaster is a billionaire he lives in the fast lane and is starting a charity that means a lot to him after losing someone he loved and cared for, the reason he asked Libby to talk at the launch. Oh but when he meets gorgeous Libby is testosterone hits max limits and he is drawn to her like no other woman before and he wants her and agrees to her terms which leaves him panting.

This one is hot and steamy, but so lovely Alex and Libby are made for each other in my opinion they are both gorgeous, loving and caring people and the emotions they open up in each other will have you sighing, I really enjoyed this one and if you like sexy, erotic stories than this one is for you. Thank you MS Harroway for a fabulous story

This is the first of the new Harlequin/Mills & Boon Dare line that I have read, and it is hot, steamy hot, MS Connelly has written a story that could set the pages on fire. Her hero who has some real issues from his past and his right hand employee Gemma Picton know that they should both be off limits to each other but cannot ignore the heat that ignites between them for too long and then when that match gets struck WOW.

Gemma is so attached to her gorgeous billionaire boss but is strong enough to control it for a couple of years but he has been pushing her now for too long but she does not want to be one of those females that he uses he sleeps with them and walks away, she knows in his eyes he has his reasons but can she get through to him can she mend his heart.

Jack Grant has a broken heart and uses woman these days for sex and lots of it anyway anytime but he is so drawn to his work counsel Gemma, she is strong feisty and often comes across icy and she puts up with so much from him but he cannot deny this burning fire between them any longer and when they join they detonate together.

This one has a lot of hot sex in it but the banter between Jack and Gemma is really good it had me smiling as did Gemma’s Grandmother, they are both very smart people and they do know what they want even if Jack has a harder time than Gemma finally realizing that he should let go of the past and look to the future with Gemma these two were made for each other even though they come from totally different backgrounds. If you like your romance with a lot of steam and banter then this is the story for you, I loved the HEA at the end and the epilogue, and thank you MS Connelly I will just get my fan now 

I have loved this series and was always looking forward to Rafe’s story and what a story it is, he is big and bad very bad but I think he met his match in Ella she is a tiny ballerina but with the strength to stand up to the wolf and heal him, they have a rough trip to a HEA.

Ella Hart is alone just her grandmother and her she puts everything she has into her dancing she is so passionate with it, she is vulnerable and quiet so when she needs to ask her guardian for money to go to Paris for dance school instead of the normal yes she is met by Rafe DeSantis who now controls her and her money and what he demands in return for the money will bring out a different Ella one who has demands of her own.

Rafe DeSantis is now the CEO of DS Corp and nothing is going to stand in his way to get the girl he wants, oh there is a lot in Rafe’s past that would make a normal person cringe he was sent from his family when young so as he could be controlled. Know he is controlling and the little girl who was never afraid of him is going to be his.

What a story this one is, Ella doesn’t have anyone to look after her that is until Rafe arrives on the scene and he is a wolf demanding and calm but she sees more in him he pushes her and she has the strength to stand up to him, and in such a way that he finally opens up to someone like he never has before you see she opens his heart to true love and together they will soar. Thank you MS Ashenden I loved this one.

What a fabulous story I loved it and could not put it down I met Grace in the awesome first book in this series and was so thrilled with this story she deserved a HEA and she got one a sizzling one with Russian assassin Maxim, it can be read a s a standalone but make sure you are comfortable because you won’t want to move really.

Grace has been to hell and back after spending time with the Bratva Jewels as a high class escort the things that she has been through will make your skin crawl but she is feeling safe at home with her sister still not coping emotionally, when she is kidnapped again and is to be returned to that hell and mobster Dimitri or is she? Her captor is not what she expected and he shows her a side of him that most would not see and the sizzle and spark that ignites between them unbelievable.

Maxim is a skilled assassin for the Russian Mafia he does his job with accuracy and without feeling but there really is more to Maxim than the person that most see, so when he is paid to kidnap Grace and he needs to keep her for a while till he returns her to Dimitri feelings unlike he has had before grow and then the discovery about his sister changes everything.

This is a fast paced sensual story never did either Grace or Maxim expect to fall in love so fast and so deeply of course there is danger and many ups and downs along the way but you will not be disappointed in their journey it sizzles it is emotional as Grace and Maxim open up there are lots of twists and MS Low has built the characters up into real people some so lovely others not so but what a fabulous ending to this story and I am sure there has to be more in this series Elena? Thank you for another fabulous story.

MS Ashenden has done it again written a story that will engage the reader and have them turning the pages with her powerful emotional words that bring out the inner feelings of the hero and heroine, and both of these two Lucas Tate and Grace Riley have vulnerabilities but show strength their passions ignite as they journey a dangerous path to a HEA that will have you sighing.

Grace is a creative artist who has been put down throughout her life by someone who should have shown encouragement and love and this leaves her vulnerable, she has lost her SEAL husband, killed in the line of duty and is concentrating on her painting. So when Lucas Tate her husband’s friend walks into her life and tells her that her life is in danger, well it upends her life completely and she can no longer deny the spark that shoots between them.

Lucas never shows emotion that was pushed out of him as a young boy he is controlled and in control always so when he is given the task by his deceased father to protect Grace Riley he gets on with the job never realizing what this will do to his inner self his feeling are upended totally as he does what he can to keep Grace safe and tries to keep his feelings intact.

WOW the vulnerable quiet artist Grace is about to melt the ice and snow that is Lucas Tate and in a very sensual steamy and thoroughly enjoyable way. I loved these two what a couple they make they are just so good for each other, I loved seeing them open up to each other and fall in love. Thank you MS Ashenden for another fabulous story bring on Wolf’s story now woohoo. I do highly recommend this one it will have your heart pumping.
