Review – Here Comes the Bride by Rita Herron

Here Comes the BrideGenre: Contemporary Romance
Downloaded my copy from Amazon for FREE on December 13, 2012

Blurb
“Sometimes out of the frying pan and into the fire is the best way to burn. ”

A twin switch. A fake fiancé. An impromptu wedding.
Will it lead to true love?

Thoughts
I decided to go back through all the books I’ve downloaded for free and read a few. I’m so glad I did. Here Comes the Bride was a cute and fun story. My husband is a twin so I love reading stories with that twisted into the storyline. This was a fun example of mischief twins can get into.

Marci and Kimberly are identical twins, in looks anyway. In personalities, they couldn’t be more different. When Marci talks Kimberly into switching with her on a side job of pretending to be someone else’s fiancé for the weekend, she wouldn’t let Kimberly refuse.

Austin has always thought Marci was hot, but either she’s a really good actor or she hides a lot of herself from people at work. She’s completely different than he expected, and everything he never knew he wanted.

These two are so perfect for each other, it doesn’t make sense. This was a fun light read and I’m so glad I decided to read it. It definitely lightened my mood.

Review – Secrets by Lorhainne Eckhart

SecretsGenre: Contemporary Western Romance
Series: Finding The Love Series, Book 6
Downloaded my copy from Amazon for FREE on May 1st, 2013

Blurb
“Jed always told me he’d take care of everything. And I believed him, I trusted him, I loved him.”
From the author of Finding Love ~ The Outsider Series and the #1 kindle bestseller in westerns and romance series, THE FORGOTTEN CHILD, comes the sequel to The Awakening…

For Diana, Jed was the first man she trusted. He was the first man to show her what true love was. He was the father of her child, the one man she could always count on. Until one spring day Jed falls from the roof of the barn and Diana’s world as she knows it begins to unravel.

Diana is forced to face two things, her husband’s secrets and what if… there was no Jed

Thoughts
This series is so moving and really delves into the problems this family faces. Secrets shows how a family pulls together in a time of need and crisis, or how they should any way. I loved the plot and how it played out as well. I am about to start reading the next book in the series because of how into the book the author drew me.

Jed is the epitome of the Alpha male. He just wants to take care of and protect his wife. What he doesn’t realize is that keeping secrets from her about things will only hurt their relationship. Ms. Eckhart demonstrates what it takes to make a marriage work with this couple. They have definitely been through the wringer. She also demonstrates what not to do with Andy and his new wife Laura.

Secrets is not a stand-alone book. It can be read by itself, but to understand certain things, you need to read the series from the beginning.

Review – Wolf’s Valentine by Rebecca Royce

Wolfs ValentineGenre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Westervelt Wolves, Book 3.5
Bought my copy from All Romance for $2.99 on February 14th, 2013

Blurb
Jana thought she was through with Westervelt. Fleeing for her life thirty years ago, she’s hidden as a human ever since. But a strangely worded Valentine delivered to her desk at work has given her pause.

Malcolm never expected to find his mate working for a crooked company he was sent to investigate in New York City. But there she is. Now, on Valentine’s Day, the two will battle their attraction for each other while taking down a conglomerate built for the sole purpose of destroying the Westervelt Wolves.

Thoughts
Rebecca Royce and her Westervelt Wolves were some of the first paranormal romances I read. I couldn’t get enough. I loved coming back and hearing more about what’s going on. I will definitely be getting back into this series.  I love the world Ms. Royce built with Westervelt. It’s amazing.

Jana has been alone for over 30 years. She’s finally intrigued enough by a human to accept a date, a first for her. Her wolf demanded she would mate with a wolf. Little does she know, Malcolm is not only a wolf (who’s hiding his scent), he’s also her mate.

I loved this brief story and the insight of what’s happening in the Westervelt world. It’s nice to know they are getting closer to beating the boogey man.

Review – The Cajun’s Captive by Selena blake

The Cajuns CaptiveGenre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Stormy Weather, Book 1
Downloaded my copy from Amazon for FREE on May 30th, 2013

Blurb
After centuries of solitude the stars are finally aligned just right. The handsome Deveraux brothers of Louisiana are going to meet their match this Hurricane Season.

Sebastian Deveraux is the Alpha of his pack and like all the Deveraux men, he’s sexy as pure sin. He’s waited for decades for just the right woman. For his mate. And ten years ago he’d been sure he’d found her in Amanda St. James. But she’d run from him.

Now she’s back. He’ll do anything to keep her. Even if it means chaining her to his bed.

Thoughts
Werewolves are my favorite heroes in romance novels, followed closely by cowboys. I couldn’t wait to read this book and started it right after I snatched it up. Selena Blake knows how to keep the readers turning the pages. I couldn’t put it down.

The Cajun’s Captive is a short read, that is hot and tells basically the whole story in a little amount of time. I didn’t see anything that was missing. With most novellas, I feel as if I missed some of the story, not so here. I got the back story and the current story all in one. This book drew me in and made me pace wanting to grab book two. I definitely will be.

Review – The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken

The BetGenre: Contemporary Romance/ New Adult
Purchased my copy from Amazon for $0.99 on May 25th, 2013

Blurb
“I have a proposition for you…”
Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus’s mouth. Instead, she made a deal with the devil in hopes of putting her past behind her once and for all.
Four days.
She could do four days!
But she wasn’t counting on Jake’s older brother Travis being there to witness their farce of an engagement.
One thing is for certain.
One brother is right for her.
One wants a lifetime.
And one is in league with the devil.
She should have gotten Jake’s signature in blood.

Thoughts
This was a fun and frustrating book. I laughed a lot and loved the play and banter the characters shared back and forth, but really wanted to smack the hero and heroine upside the head. It’s one thing for a little boy to be mean to a girl he likes, but when he’s still doing it into his twenties, something’s not right.

I didn’t know if Kacey was ever going to wake up and see which brother was the right one for her. These two deserve a happy ending and I hope to see more from them in another book, preferably Jake’s. I think he should realize he was wrong now and start looking for the right one.
