Hard to put down, great story

The Marine's Red Hot Homecoming - Christine Glover

This story is the first I have read by Christine Glover, and it kept me turning pages. Hannah's strength to raise a child alone, build her own business, and still find away to love Caleb were the reasons. When Caleb finally realized what he was losing, I had tears of joy that all was not lost. I found the storytelling engrossing and look forward to reading more from this author.

This is my unsolicited review and I highly recommend it.

Enjoyable read

One fantastic night for Katy ends up being forgotten. Gage has no idea that a magical night no longer exists for Katy. With holes in her memory, Katy struggles to figure out what is right and what is wrong, and who the father of her baby is. Her gut leads her to Gage who is determined to build new memories with her. I loved how patient Gage was and how Katy followed her heart.

A fun, magical story

Chase 'n' Ana - Ciana Stone

Ana is a witch and is on the run. Chase literally runs into her. Her free spirit pulls Chase in as well as his family. I loved the energy of Ana and her positiveness. Chase accepted her claims as they went along and when it was absolutely necessary, and I gave him credit.

Sweet yet gritty hero stole my heart

Into The Hall Of Vice (Bastards of London, Book 2) - Anabelle Bryant

I loved Cole. He may have been from the wrong side of the blanket, but he made it a priority to help others so that they would not have to go through with what he had. Once he met Gemma, he found he had a softer side, one that wanted to be love and be part of a family. Gemma fought against her brother's rules to look into her father's death and got herself into trouble. Cole to the rescue. Not truly speaking of their feelings for each other caused a rift between them. It was an interesting journey for these two.
