"Get a crush on Crush! Full of clever humor, heart and heat."--New York Times bestselling author, Lori Wilde
Merry Christmas from your new friends in Holiday, Texas: The most celebratory town in the South!
When Jinx Jacobs's motorcycle breaks down outside Holiday, Texas, the last thing she wants is to get stuck in the cheery little town, especially during the holidays. The whole place has gone Christmas crazy, but all she has to do is stay out from under the mistletoe--and do her best to keep that unnervingly attractive cop off her back.
Single dad and sheriff's deputy Cash Walker doesn't have time for romance, and yet something about the tempting loner twists his stomach up tighter than a tangle of tinsel. He may have finally found the missing piece in his life...but with Jinx so determined to avoid putting down roots, convincing her to stay may just take a Christmas miracle.
Holiday, Texas Series: All-American Cowboy (Book 1)Cowboy Christmas Jubilee (Book 2)

This is a very cute Christmas themed Romance story. Jinx and Cash and their story is one that you will want to curl up on the sofa under a warm blanket and read, no matter what the temperature is outside. There is plenty of humor, family interference and of course romance in this story. I look forward to reading more about the Walker family in the future.

A fierce Englishwoman on the runA Highland Laird who needs a proper wifeAnd a desire neither can resist
Athena Trappes thinks she's in love...until she discovers the scoundrel only wanted her as his bit on the side. Enraged, she does what any spirited Englishwoman would do: set fire to his belongings, incur his dangerous wrath, and flee—immediately. With nowhere else to turn, she seeks freedom in the wilds of Scotland.
Highland Laird Symon Grant lost his wife years ago, and it's his duty to find another. Athena is not exactly what the clan has in mind for him, but Symon's heart burns with unexpected passion for the woman who would risk everything to be free.

A Historical Romance book filled with Highlanders, what’s not to like. Athena is a naive young lady who put her trust in the wrong man, one that was above her station in life. When she finally learns what a mistake she made she needs to flee, and what better place to flee to than the Highlands. Thankfully she meets Symon and he is able to bring her around to believing not all men are bad.

This was an easy fun, quick read with plenty of romance. I would recommend this to any who enjoy historical romance books.

What People Are Saying About Reckless Hearts: "An emotional, heartfelt, and absolutely beautiful story. I wanted each character to be my best friend. Reckless Hearts was so real, with gorgeous writing that kept me hooked from first page to the last." --JENNIFER BLACKWOOD, USA Today bestselling author of The Rule Book "Van Fleet has mastered the alpha hero. With perfectly flawed characters and miles of scorching heat, Reckless Hearts is a must read!" --KELLY SISKIND, author of A Fine Mess"Swoon-worthy...can't wait for the next addition to the series!"--RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

This is the 3rd and final book of the Reckless Hearts series. With Gavin and McKenna getting their story.  Gavin is an interesting character, with plenty of baggage from his time in the military. McKenna is perfect for him, with her attitude and she’s not going to let him go. Their journey to happily ever after makes for a great and enjoyable read.

Outcast and exiled, the demon Tarrik Nal-Valim has long been forgotten by the world of humans. At least, so he thinks.
But when he is summoned as a last resort by a desperate sorcerer, it seems as though his past has caught up with him. The sorcerer is Serenity “Ren” Branwen, the daughter of Tarrik’s former master—and friend. Though she seems cold, driven, and ruthless, Tarrik can tell that Ren has her back against a wall, and he is compelled by ferocious powers to obey her.
As their world sinks into a terrifying maelstrom of murder, intrigue, and insurrection, Tarrik is forced to serve Ren’s arcane designs—plans that, if they were to succeed, would resurrect unimaginable power and could destroy Tarrik’s entire race.
But as events unfurl, the lines between demon and master become blurred, and Tarrik realizes that Ren is not what she seems. To prevent utter devastation, Tarrik may have to surrender what he values most: a chance at redemption and an end to his exile.

First and foremost I really liked Tarrik Nal-Valim, he tells it like it is. He’s a snarky demon who’s been around the block a few times. When he is finally called back to serve someone, he’d really hoped that they forgot all about him. He finds him face to face with an old master of his daughter who’s in a bit of a pickle. The sparing between Tarrik and Ren is fun to see. They both are strong people who are both in positions they don’t want to be in. But necessity is demanding it of them at this time. It takes time and mistakes for them to realize that they really should work together instead of fighting to be the one controlling the situation. That makes this a fun book to read, and one that pulls you in so you cant put it down.

I really enjoyed this book very much and look forwards to others in this series.

He can’t have her.So he moves in with her…What could possibly go wrong?
As heir to a chain of luxury hotels, Sean Wyse III always gets what he wants. So when he sees a freeloading roommate taking advantage of his spunky best friend, Molly Brandt, he doesn’t hesitate to step in. He kicks out the roommate…and moves himself in.
Molly loves quality time with Sean, but spending nights with him one wall away threatens to wake the crush she thought she’d gotten over. A crush Sean knows nothing about, which might be a problem…considering how hard Sean’s been working never to think of Molly that way.

I really enjoyed this book. Molly has had a secret crush on Sean for awhile, and when he moves in things can and do get interesting . It helped that both Molly and Sean are likable characters, and its always a fun ride seeing how people who are friends start to see that they are really more than just friends. This is their story of how 2 best friends become lovers and so much more.

I would highly recommend this book!
