REVIEWS
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely historial romance novel November 7, 2014
By
Steve McDowel 
Format:Kindle Edition
 I started this book and couldn't put it down. It reminded me of everything I loved about romance as a young man. The characters were like real people with real problems, and the story one that made you want to stick with them all the way to the end. Annie and Ryan were the perfect couple for the perfect reasons. I loved the emotional build-up with just the right amount of sexual tension. It's hard for me to write more without spoilers, but I would say if you grew up loving historical romance novels that made you smile, laugh and tear up occasionally--you'll love this one. 


5.0 out of 5 stars
Addicting Outback Romance November 10, 2014
By
Becca Quinlan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
 I haven't read any historical romances set in Australia before, but I think this is becoming my new favorite niche within the genre. I really enjoyed the Outback setting--it added so much to the romance and the story. Annie Tremayne deals with the turmoil of romantic advances from two very different men. The way things play out had me turning the pages like crazy. This is one of those books that once you start, you more or less can't put down. I really enjoyed this historical romance. I am looking forward to checking out other romance stories by Parris Afton Bonds.

If you’re in the mood for a gripping mystery/ suspense book, then Richard Houston’s debut novel, “A View to Die For”, is the right choice for you. The author proves his talent by offering the readers an engaging plot, likeable characters and an intricate puzzle that will keep them on edge, because nothing is what it seems and discovering the real criminal is not an easy task.

Jacob Martin is an unemployed software engineer who lives with Fred, his beloved Golden Retriever, and dreams of becoming a novelist. When his mother calls to tell him that his sister, Megan, has been arrested for killing her fourth husband, Jake knows that he needs to take Fred and go to his sister’s rescue. For the local DA and sheriff everything is clear because Megan is known for collecting her husbands’ life insurance policies and the last one is worth a million dollars. Their mother insists Mike committed suicide, but this supposition might be very far from the truth. Jake is determined to take matters into his own hands and find the criminal before his family has even more to suffer.

In February of 2012, my husband’s toes began speaking to me. After recovering from the initial shock that body parts could speak, I came to know the toes intimately - their hopes and dreams, their thoughts and fears, their conflicting desires to both transcend their structural limitations and achieve radical acceptance of their lack of autonomy.

I share these historic dialogues at the risk of great ridicule in the hopes that others will come forward and share what I know now to be true – our toes are alive, and they need to be heard.

Anyone but Alex is the third of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Sort of. Barrett and Fitz are officially off the market, Alex has sampled every piece of available ass from Rittenhouse Square to the Liberty Bell, Stratton can't seem to see what's right in front of him, and don't even get me started on super hottie, Weston...)

Alex English, the well-known man whore of the country club set, has always preferred to play the field, eschewing a chance with Miss Right for a satisfying quickie with Miss Right-Now. But after seeing his two older brothers take the plunge, something has been aching inside of Alex, and no amount of casual sex seems to fill the void in his heart.

Jessica Winslow, whose older brothers are best friends with the English brothers, has returned home from a fifteen-year stay in England, only to find herself face-to-face with her childhood crush, Alex English, on her first night home. She's heard all the rumors, but Jessie remembers the older boy who was so kind to her as a child, and can't help reaching out to Alex in friendship.

Between disapproving brothers, scheming exes, and the biggest business deal of English & Sons' illustrious history, Alex and Jessie's budding romance is going to be put to the test. The question is...will it be strong enough to be their happily-ever-after?

Alice Hart is a lonely old woman who believes true love happens only once in a lifetime. When the angel Christmas tree topper given to her by the fiancé she lost sixty years ago comes to life, Alice's wish to be young again is granted, but she's given only ten days to find true love or die unfulfilled. So she concocts a story that she's Alice's long lost niece, hoping to attract the attention of the handsome tenant renting her upstairs apartment.

Disillusioned by his experiences with high maintenance women, Jack Billings yearns to find an old-fashioned girl who is more interested in his heart than in material things. When his elderly landlady vanishes, her newly arrived niece, Ally, seems to hold the clues to her disappearance. Jack at first dismisses Ally as another material girl, but as he digs deeper into Alice's mystery, he learns that Ally is more than what she seems and worries that the girl he's coming to love might be a scam artist or worse.
