One Last Weekend by
Linda Lael Miller
Joanna and Teague Darby fell in love and
married in college, had a beautiful daughter and a wonderful
life. As Teague’s architectural firm became more successful,
he started spending a lot more time at the office, which ended
up in Joanna and Teague drifting apart. Shortly after their
daughter marries, Teague and Joanna have decided that they’ve
grown too far apart and decide to divorce. Their lawyer gets
them to spend one last weekend together in their cottage.
Will this time together allow them to repair their marriage,
or will they grow even more distant?
One Last Weekend is a sweet
story that shows that no matter how much a couple may love
each other, if their relationship isn’t nurtured, it will
still fall apart. Real life situations and true to life
characters made One Last Weekend a good story
that I easily identified with.
You Give Love A Good
Name by Jennifer Apodaca
Lexi is being stalked by an unknown man.
Even though the family that Lexi has sacrificed her wants and
goals for doesn’t believe her, she is still on the run. Nick
is a bounty hunter hired to track down and bring Lexi back for
an upcoming trial. Although they had met at his sister’s
wedding months ago, and Lexi turned down his offer of a one
night stand, he hasn’t been able to forget her. Bound, bent
and determined to keep a professional distance from the woman
he has to bring back, will he be able to keep the promise to
himself when Lexi needs his protection from her stalker?
Watching Lexi and Nick fight their
attraction for each other was a treat in You Give Love A
Good Name. Although Nick swore that he’d never get
involved with another woman, Lexi gets under his skin without
even trying. With a stalker on Lexi’s tail, Nick made her
feel safe and hot, as well as driving her half crazy. I did
enjoy the characters and storyline in You Give Love A
My Kind Of Town by
Emma is on a mission: track down a power
source for her coven, as well as find and stop whatever
escaped from the dimensional doorway. Emma wasn’t happy about
her situation. She’s a city girl and in no way does she want
to be stuck going to the backwoods of North Carolina. She’s
even less happy when she’s run off the road by what looked
like a huge dog, injured, hunted by something in the woods and
taken against her will to the hospital by an arrogant, pushy,
albeit gorgeous Deputy Sheriff. Kyle doesn’t want to bring
the feisty, injured outsider to his town, but there’s
something about her that calls to him. In a town filled with
shapeshifters and other paranormal beings, having the woman
around could be dangerous.
Action, magick, mayhem, steamy scenes and
exciting characters made My Kind Of Town an
incredible read for me; I loved it! This story drew me in
from the first page and had me living the adventure right
along with the characters. I simply couldn’t put it down until
I’d read the final word. I really hope that Ms. Laurenston
writes more stories that take place in this world!
Sun, Sand, Sex is a very
good anthology that has something for pretty much every
romance reader. One Last Weekend is sweet and
loving, You Give Love A Good Name has danger and
romance, and My Kind Of Town has magick, hold on
to the edge of your seat excitement, and a lot of heat.
