UNDER PRESSURE Synopsis:

He can protect anything except his heart

Leese Phelps’s road hasn’t been an easy one, but it’s brought him to the perfect job—working for the elite Body Armor security agency. And what his newest assignment lacks in size, she makes up for in fire and backbone. But being drawn to Catalina Nicholson is a dangerous complication, especially since it could be the very man who hired Leese who’s threatening her.

What Catalina knows could get her killed. But who’d believe the sordid truth about her powerful stepfather? Beyond Leese’s ripped body and brooding gaze is a man of impeccable honor. He’s the last person she expects to trust—and the first who’s ever made her feel safe. And he’s the only one who can help her expose a deadly secret, if they can just stay alive long enough…

 

“Romantic thriller veteran Foster has been honing her skill for a long time, and it’s clear she’s at the top of her game here. Readers will find themselves, along with her colorful cast of supporting characters, rooting for a happy-ever-after.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“Teasing and humorous dialogue, sizzling sex scenes, tender moments, and overriding tension show Foster’s skill as a balanced storyteller. She sets up a continuing story line for the series with the mystery of who murdered the firm’s founder, Sahara’s brother, but this thread never overwhelms the gripping main story, which will leave readers breathless.”

– Publishers Weekly

Excerpt:

 

One thing stuck in Leese’s mind. “You didn’t like the family business?” From what Leese knew, her father had grown a highly successful empire supplying enhance­ments to new tech gadgets. Smartphone covers, special screens, camera lenses—he offered something for ev­eryone, and had distribution throughout the country, as well as in select markets around the world.

“No.” She wrinkled her nose. “I don’t fit the mold. Honestly, though she faked it well, my mom didn’t ei­ther. She could attend the fancy parties and appear to enjoy them. The transition was almost seamless for her. But when we were alone, she was herself. Really warm and funny, sometimes too strict and overprotective.” She fell silent, then whispered, “Webb was different when she was here. I think she was a good influence on him.”

“She passed away from cancer?”

“Yes. A terrible disease. Holt does a lot of fund-raising for cancer research. I think it’s why Bowen went into medicine.”

“Do you look like your mother?”

She flashed him a smile. “Everyone says I do. She was really petite too. Same color hair and eyes. I always thought my mom was really beautiful, and I know I’m not, so I’m complimented when people tell me that.”

Justice, who’d been so quiet Leese almost forgot he would be listening, said, “Oh, I dunno. You’re awful cute. I imagine if you dolled up, you could turn some heads.”

She laughed. “Thank you, but I don’t have many op­portunities to ‘doll up’ anymore, thank goodness. That’s one of the things I disliked most about wealth. Everyone expected me to look perfect all the time. And I’m just not the type who can pull that off.”

Leese thought she looked pretty damned perfect, even in her tattered jeans, with her hair tangled and windblown and not a speck of makeup on her face. Her mouth, especially, drew his attention. She had full lips and when he’d kissed her—

“Teaching art to kids means wearing lots of smocks, not gowns. Usually the smock ends up being pretty col­orful though—paint, clay, marker. I’m far better suited to a grade-school art room than an influential committee.”

All in all, Leese thought that sounded pretty nice.

Justice asked, “You like kids, huh?”

“Very much. My students are terrific, even the more troublesome kids. They’re all creative in their own unique ways.”

Leese let her and Justice talk about children and art, knowing it was a distraction for her. She didn’t yet want to tell him about her stepfather, but time would soon run out.

When the two of them wound down and Justice ran out of teasing compliments, Leese said, “You can have a short reprieve, but when we get to the agency, you’re going to need to decide.”

A whole lot of wariness flooded back into her expres­sion. “Decide what?”

“If you’re going to make my job easier by coming clean, or if you’re going to leave me muddling about in the dark, which could also be riskier for both of us.”

She released a tense breath. “Maybe a better decision would be to leave so you guys aren’t at risk.”

Leese caught her chin, a surefire method to gain and hold her attention. “That’s one choice you don’t have. Whether you like it or not, you’ve got my protection.”

Justice added, “If you’re thinking of dodging him, think again. He’s pretty good at surveillance.”

Cat scowled at them both. “I think I’ll take a nap, after all.” She bunched up her coat and shoved it against the door like a pillow. “Wake me when we’re there.”

So she wouldn’t rest against him this time? Too bad. But he wouldn’t waste the quiet time. He had a whole lot more research to do, and this time his focus would be on her stepfather and his friends.

With or without her help, he’d get things figured out. Hopefully in enough time to keep her out of trouble.

Review: Shelter for Adeline by Susan Stoker @Susan_Stoker

Susan Stoker

Shelter for Adeline
Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Book 7
January 10, 2017

 

Blurb:

Saddled with a job she hates and a detestable boss she likes even less, Adeline Reynolds could use a break. It doesn’t look like she’ll get one today. Her service dog, Coco, is alerting her she’s about to have an epileptic seizure—and her frustrated blind date has left her to deal on her own. Enter firefighter Dean Christopherson, who escorts her to the nearby fire station, where she can suffer through her ordeal safe from injury and prying eyes.

Dean—known as “Crash” to his friends—didn’t expect to find The One in a diner during his lunch break, but he’s blindsided by the beautiful, brave Adeline. She brings out his every protective instinct—along with the carnal ones. As they get to know each other, Dean’s feelings for Adeline grow fast, as does his irritation with her boss, whose behavior is suspicious at best.

As much as he wants to protect Adeline from the world, Crash has to tread carefully. His overprotectiveness could push her away…and leave her vulnerable to a man whose obsession has reached the boiling point.

Review:

Dean Christopherson happens across Adeline Reynolds after a date bails on her.  Adeline therapy dog alerts her to a seizure she is about to have.  Dean rides into the rescue and escorts Adeline to his fire station to help her until she is safe again.  An immediate attraction begins, and Adeline for the first time feels safe.

Unfortunately, Adeline has caught the attention of one evil eye.  Can Dean and his crew by the ones to step into save Adeline?

My first draw to the story was how well Susan Stoker dealt with the scenario of epilepsy and the use of a therapy dog.  The concept of Coco being able to sense Adeline seizure before it happens just keeps me in awe.  Susan also kept the story where Adeline is independent and desires this to be true instead of relying on a person to save her.  Her desire for Dean was out of companionship, not out of a need to be rescued from her epilepsy.

The story is very endearing and contains many swoon-worthy scenes.  Dean is steamy hot, and he keeps the attraction going between him and Adeline.  Also, the secondary characters add depth to the story.  My favorite was Chief.  I can’t wait for his story to come to play.

A must read story for fans of Susan Stoker.

Happy Reading!!!

Badge of Honor Texas Heroes Book Two

For Cruz Livingston, becoming an FBI agent is a lifelong dream, guarding the streets of San Antonio, a calling. His latest assignment—infiltrating the Red Brothers Motorcycle Club—will help stem the flow of illegal drugs brought into the city by the violent gang. He expects the job to be dangerous. He doesn’t expect to meet the woman of his dreams while undercover.

Mickie Kaiser is refreshingly sweet, but her sister is intimately involved with the RBMC’s president. Cruz can’t afford to come clean about his double life without putting his operation in danger, but as violence creeps ever closer to Mickie, his priority becomes crystal clear.

Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of…joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.

#Excerpt

 

18+ Excerpt

“Ahhhhhh!” she roared in his ear. Her breath hit his skin in bursts. “I love your dick, you—”

Lex gripped onto her legs, freeing his hands to position his body over her. “Oh, yes. Fuck me!” She aimed her vagina better into action, her spasmodic contractions clamping around him. “I—I’m coming again. Ohhh, yeaaeeoo.” Her excitement shot on his upper legs.

“Principessa, stay still. Perfect, like that.” Massimo drilled down on her, filling her to the highest hilt, his sac slapping against her creamy skin. His cock shoved inside, but not quite all the way.

“Tight, tight, bella. I was certain I’d climax the second I got inside you. You have no idea.” He loved her wetness, testing the limits to see how far he could go. His hips went back and forth. This is it.

“Told you it’d been a while,” she sassed on.

“Bella’s going to get it.” His body heat rose. Massimo studied her face, watching her love him. Each thrust he’d give inched the bed toward the wall with a loud creak.

“More, give me more,” she begged, her back arching as she leaned into him.

“Yeah, principessa.”

“Yeah, Masi.”

“You are ready, bella.”

“Harder!” Her legs fell on his shoulders as he impaled her. She raked her nails over his chest, twisting his nipples. The titty twist game he’d played on her earlier lived as a close memory.

“I am your DJ tonight. I set our beat,” he boasted, reaching for a pillow. He held up her ankles with one hand while sliding the cushion under her lower back with the other.

Spreading her legs wide, she took a deep breath and said, “I love how petite I am in your arms.”

Fingers scissoring over her pussy as he pulled out, he felt Lex’s soaked pubic hair.

Her face begged for more and her core stared back at him, waiting for fulfillment.

“Can you take my entire cock, bella?”

Massimo brought her hips up.

“Do it!”

Akin to his V12 Lamborghini picking up speed, he throttled inside her walls. “So good!” he exclaimed, noting he could no longer tell where her body ended and his began. He revved up for more.

“Yes,” she said, quaking and drowning his cock as her entire body clenched tight around him. “I am coming again. Jesus, fuck!”

Lex is beauty. Lex is love. Lex is mine. “Bellissima.” He dug. Massimo pushed harder as the bedframe knocked the far corner, motivating him to persist.

Her body trembled and spasmed into fits.

It shocked him.

He realized Lex required more. “Ready, principessa?” he asked, but didn’t wait for response as she clenched tight, contracting around his girth. Lex sucked him in. Fucking hungry.

“You want my balls?” he hinted.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite…requited.

Excerpt

Interesting? How about fascinating, mesmerizing, captivating? She looked edible. Like a sweet dessert he wanted to savor with each lick and nibble, until she was panting and crying out his name as he screwed her until neither of them could walk.

Once again, his thoughts descended to the carnal. Hell. The woman wasn’t even trying to get under his skin, and she had with ease. He didn’t understand it. He’d dealt with killers and seducers, women out to take him for his wallet, his money, for information. He’d been with true beauties, women with culture and genius IQs. Yet none of them had ever affected him like the woman sitting across from him now.

Noel had been attracted to Addy from the moment he’d met her. He liked her parents, and he didn’t like many people. The physical attraction made sense; she appealed to his ideal female aesthetic. But digging into her character and “stalking”—as Deacon had put it—for details about the woman had made him want to know so much more.

He’d been smart to keep his distance for so long, taking refuge in the fact he wanted only to be left alone. Because now that he’d taken her out, he was hooked. And Noel and normal didn’t mix. His kind of danger wouldn’t be good for a sweet woman like Addy.

Then again, there was no danger at home. He’d made it a safe zone. Here, he could play with what-ifs, if only in his mind. Talk about rationalizing, yet…

“What’s that look?” Addy asked.

“Hmm?”

“You look like you’re about to stab me with your knife.” She nodded to the steak knife he’d been gripping.

“Oh, sorry.” He came up with a fast excuse. “It’s just that I’m trying to say the right thing and not offend you. I have a bad habit of coming across as antisocial.”

“No, really?” she teased.

Her smile slayed him. Just…

He swallowed a sigh, feeling like a horny, lovesick fool. And wouldn’t Hammer and Deacon laugh their asses off thinking of Noel pining over a woman way too nice for him? Damn. Time to sac up and stop thinking foolish thoughts.

Noel didn’t do romance or relationships. He occasionally had sex, though he’d never considered himself an excessively sexual man. For him it was a release when the job was getting to be too much. Not like Deacon. The guy would inhale, and on the exhale end up balls deep in a woman. Hell, he’d fucked half of Sicily on that one mission two years ago. The kid has to be his.

Noel, on the other hand, suppressed his desires the way he did most feeling in his life. Cold, barely there.

Ice.

He gave her a wry smile as he pulled back on his feelings. “See? It’s like you know me already.”

Review: The Duality Principle by Rebecca Grace Allen @RGraceAllen

Rebecca Grace Allen

The Duality Principle
Portland Rebels Series 3.5 Books
November 11, 2014

 

Blurb:

Sometimes A + B = O. Yes. Oh, yes. Just like that.

Gabriella Evans’s life exists in terms of logic and definitions. She’s holed up in Portland, Maine, for the summer to work on her PhD thesis, but something is screwing up her concentration: the rumble of a motorcycle every time the embodiment of her rough-and-tumble fantasies rides down her street.

When her best friend talks her into a blind date, she finds herself out with the opposite of her fantasy. He’s polite and well-mannered, yet something behind his crisply tailored shirt doesn’t add up—a rebellious gleam in his eye that piques her curiosity.

Orphaned at fifteen, Connor Starks has finally put the years of failing grades, breaking laws and breaking hearts behind him. The only holdover? His penchant for getting down and dirty in public places. But Gabriella makes him want to prove he’s become a better man.

Nothing intrigues Gabriella more than a problem she can’t solve. But the more Connor tries to bury his past, the more determined she is to uncover it. And what she finds makes all her trusty logic begin to fail her…

Warning: This book contains a summer romance, dirty talk, dockside kissing, motorcycles and tattoos. Features a rebellious nerdy girl with an appetite for outdoor sex and light spanking, and a bad boy who’s turned good…or at least he’s trying.

Review:

The Duality Principle is a story of polar opposites who could actually be quite compatible.  Take one innocent looking Gabriella Evans, a girl who enjoys studying math and logic.  Enter in Connor, a reformed bad boy.  You have quite a mix with a girl who wants to be bad and a boy who wants to be good.

The Duality Principle gives a message of just being you.  Both Connor and Gabriella have others that expect them a certain.  They never get to be just themselves.  I consider their true selves a bit of sweet and salty.  Just the mix to make a tasty morsel.

Reading about how Connor was around Gabriella was wickedly fun.  Every time things get heated he bolts.  Gabriella wants some adventure, but will Connor be the one to give it to her?

Rebecca Grace Allen provides an entertaining read for fans.  As you read more into the book, you contemplate on who is going to win the race.

I recommend checking out Rebecca Grace Allen’s novels.  I think you will get quite the kick.

Happy reading!!!

Title The Hierarchy of Needs
Subtitle Portland Rebels Series Book 2

Blurb:

Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she’s back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool. Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.

Since the day Dean met Jamie, he’s loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn’t an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.

A “what-happens-in-Vegas” weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need…

Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot ’n’ heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes—only the fun kind, of course.

Title The Theory of Deviance
Subtitle Portland Rebels Series Book 3

Blurb:

Deviance is unacceptable. It’s taboo. And it’s the one thing he’s always wanted.

Painful shyness isn’t the only reason Mikey Pelletier is a twenty-five-year-old virgin. Between working for his parents and volunteering at his church, he neither has the time nor the inclination to admit his bisexuality to the world—or to himself.

A visit from Krissy Porter will hopefully fix everything. After three months of chatting with her, Mikey’s got one carefully planned week to win her heart and lose his V-card. He’s hoping he can pull it off, even with her roommate along for the ride.

Krissy has been drawn to Mikey for a while. He’s so easygoing, she thinks he could be the calm in her storm. But there’s an extra complication when she comes to visit: her friend-with-benefits, “hetero-flexible” roommate, Rafe.

During a week of revelations, intimacy, and kink, Krissy and Rafe become the angel and devil on Mikey’s shoulders, tempting him in different directions. And all three of them discover that a week of pure deviance can lead to the most uncontrollable emotion of all: love.

Warning: This book contains innocent board game-playing that takes a sexy turn, use of recreational substances, back-door action, and some smokin’ hot threesomes. Plus, scenes of inner-demon slaying. Fans and tissues advised.

Review: She’s The One by Erin Nicholas @ErinNicholas

Erin Nicholas

She’s The One, Counting on Love, Book 1
Counting on Love Series
June 11, 2013

 

Blurb:


Sometimes you see love clearly. And sometimes it has to smack you in the face.

When a stranger walks up and punches him, Ryan Kaye assumes there’s a good reason. But he’s stunned to learn it’s over a one-night stand that never happened —with his friend’s sister, straight-laced Amanda Dixon. When Ryan confronts her about the lie, Amanda apologizes, but Ryan realizes he doesn’t want her to be sorry…he wants the night they supposedly spent together.

Amanda’s not looking to add anyone to her long list of commitments, so she was only trying to let a nice guy down easy by telling him a fling with Ryan broke her heart. So what if the fling only happened in her dreams? But when Ryan Kaye tempts her with the chance to go crazy and fulfill a few fantasies, she can’t resist. Thank goodness one night isn’t enough time to fall in love…

Product Warnings

Review:

She’s the One: Counting On Love can be summed up in one word, friendship.  Amanda Dixon, the Director of Education for students in the physical therapy program, strives to be always the best for everyone.  Ryan Kaye, the ultimate playboy, strives to keep the ladies satisfied.  Ryan is known for the perfect one-night-stand with no hard feelings afterward.

The beginning of the story starts where Ryan is sucker punched for a one-night-stand he never recalled happening with Amanda Dixon.  To soothe his injured self, he makes Amanda commit to actually having their one-night-stand, but Ryan wants more than one night.  Who will win this war?

I liked the premise of the story.  Each character had a story to tell on why Ryan and Amanda acted the way they did.  She’s the One is more of a journey into self-reflection by Ryan and Amanda.  It was fascinating and fun to see the character’s roles evolve.  Towards the end, I was cheering for a happily-ever-after.

She the One contains some steam and also many swoon-worthy scenes.  It is easy to get yourself lost in each page.  There is two reason why I rated it as high as I did.  The first being the book’s ability to engage the reader.  The second reason is that the characters complemented each other and allowed the story to progress with deep meaning.

I highly recommend this series, especially this book, to readers.

Happy Reading!!

About the Author:

I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.

I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.

Title It Takes Two, Counting on Love, Book 2
Subtitle Counting on Love Series

Blurb:

How do you fall out of love with a man who’s all in?

Isabelle Dixon never should have said yes to that first date, but she couldn’t resist Shane Kelley’s larger-than-life personality. Except now Shane seems determined to make their no-strings fling into something more.

If she thought dating Shane was hard work, breaking up is proving to be much harder. Especially since she’s planning on making some major life changes that don’t include staying out all night, Jell-O shots, and a sex toy shop punch card. She needs a restful cabin getaway-alone-to gather her thoughts. And the strength to finally end things for good.

Shane has always prided himself on being the good-time guy. Exactly Isabelle’s type…or so he thought. Yet ever since he suggested her moving in, she’s been pulling back. Thing is, Shane does everything with gusto-including falling in love.

He’s not about to let her get away that easily. Even if it means chasing her heart down a crazy road to prove that no matter what life throws at them, they make a damned good team.

Warning: Contains a strange road trip with several weird tourist stops, some hot sex in a car wash, and two people who are just crazy enough to be perfect for one another.

Title Best of Three, Counting on Love, Book 3
Subtitle Counting on Love Series

Blurb:

Sometimes it takes a couple of tries before you get love right.

Emma Dixon is known for getting in over her head—and having a great time doing it. She’s aware her shenanigans rub Nate Sullivan the wrong way, but getting a rise out of the cocky surgeon is one of her favorite pastimes. Truth be told, exasperated looks aren’t the only things she wants from the guy.

Nate has no intention of taking another trip down the falling-in-love road. Women are carefully compartmentalized—to his bedroom. Women who don’t mind his take-charge tendencies. Women very different from sassy, sexy, independent Emma.

But his usual strategy of arguing with Emma to keep from kissing her goes out the window when his son falls in love with her friend’s daughter. Emma sees a normal teenage romance. Nate sees his plans for the boy’s future ruined.

As Nate tries to derail the relationship, Emma runs interference, putting herself directly in the path of the chemistry that grows stronger every time they butt heads. And that could very well lead to the best surprise of all.

Warning: Contains a guy who knows exactly who he is and what he wants and a girl who’s going to change his mind about, well, everything. Plus inappropriate use of chocolate cake (of course, that depends on your definition of inappropriate).

Title Going for Four, Counting on Love, Book 4
Subtitle Counting on Love Series

Blurb:

It’s either true love…or the biggest mistake they’ve ever made.

Hot firefighter Cody Madsen has stayed away from Olivia Dixon for almost two years-technically. Even though he talks to her every day and sees her every weekend. But there’s no kissing, touching, or telling her how he really feels. Because they’re just friends. Anything more than that would mean crossing the line that Olivia’s older brother has firmly drawn between them.

Olivia wants what her three sisters have-true love. She could almost believe she’s found it with Cody, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s her older brother’s best friend and her brother won’t have it. And he’s never steered her wrong before. Her head is telling her to trust her brother, but her heart won’t let go of Cody.

Her solution? A dating site where she and Cody can each find their “Perfect Pick” once and for all.

But when the site yields some unexpected results, their real feelings come front and center. And they have to decide if it’s worth the risk to cross the line from friendship to love after all.

 

Warning: Contains a starry-eyed romantic, a wannabe knight in shining armor, and chocolate chip cookies. A lot of chocolate chip cookies.Goodreads:

Title Up by Five, Counting on Love, Book 5
Subtitle Counting on Love Series

Blurb:

He’s in the middle of the last thing he wanted… and the best thing to ever happen.

Ace paramedic Conner Dixon has sworn to never live with another woman after raising his four younger sisters. They have been giving him gray hair since they lost their father fifteen years ago. Now they’re all in love and Conner’s ready to retire– from worrying, fixing problems and cleaning up messes.

Of course, when his fellow paramedic, Gabrielle Evans, needs a place to stay after her apartment burns down, Conner can’t say no. But it’s no problem– Gabby’s just one of the guys.

Gabby’s penchant for poker and her ability to overhaul a transmission definitely make her different from Conner’s usual women. She also has no interest in getting involved with him. Conner’s crazy mix of family and friends is the last thing Gabby needs right now. She has her sights set on medical school in the fall and knows success depends on focus and commitment.

But within forty-eight hours of moving in, Gabby’s in the middle of a family crisis that could disprove all her I-don’t-need-anyone bluster and Conner’s in the middle of the last thing he wanted-a girl and all her stuff, all over his stuff. Still, the more she makes herself at home, the more he thinks that’s maybe exactly where her stuff should be. For good.

 

Warning: Contains a girl who thinks she wants to be just one of the guys, a guy who happily proves why that won’t work, and a very good reason to buy cinnamon roll icing-you know, other than for use on cinnamon rolls.

Review: Her Mate’s Secret Baby by Grace Goodwin @luvgracegoodwin

Grace Goodwin

Her Mate’s Secret Baby
Interstellar Brides Program, Book 9
January 13, 2017

 

Blurb:

Natalie Montgomery wants a new life. While she may be rich, her life is empty. Her parents were never around, too rich and important to be bothered with a child. And when they present her with an emotionless fiancé, she’s done. As a volunteer for the Interstellar Bride Program, she is thrilled to arrive on the hot, desert planet of Trion, and in the arms of a seductive warrior who makes her body burn.

Roark of Trion is not eager for a mate. Danger and the constant threat of war dog his steps. But one look at his new bride and his mind is changed. Natalie is everything he ever wanted in a woman…so soft, so passionate, so submissive to his every need.

 

An attack on their outpost leaves Roark fighting for his life. For her protection, Natalie is transported back to Earth. Roark thinks she’s dead. But she’s very much alive and so is his newborn son. Natalie’s anger and regret grow with each passing day her mate does not keep his promise to come for her. By the time he discovers his mistake, it may be too late to win back her heart.

Review:

I always love a baby story, and Her Mate’s Secret Baby is totally fantastic.  The story is so easy to engage in and be engrossed in that you forget all time.  I ended up spending the day reading it.

Rourke, Councilor of Trion, elects to be matched with someone different than his parent’s selection.  He enters the matching of the Interstellar Bride Program.  He is paired with Natalie Montgomery of earth.

Natalie desires a better life.  She is tired of her neglectful parents and the cheating boyfriend.  Transported to a different plant, Natalie is excited and nervous about her match with Rourke.  After meeting Rourke, this is a connection made in the stars.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t always give us what we want, and Natalie is in a place where she has to return to a life she left.  To protect what is hers, Natalie picks up the pieces and provides the best of life for her and Rourke’s baby.

Her Mate’s Secret Baby is full of surprises at every turn.  There is not a dull moment at all.  The characters all compliment each other in every way.  I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I love the action and how different the story turned out.  It was like opening a present at Christmas time.

I recommend Grace Goodwin as a must read author.  Her Mate’s Secret baby is a perfect story to start reading.

Happy Reading!!

About the Author:

Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.

Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.

She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.
