Review: Holiday Affair

Written by Jennifer Porter

Holiday_Affair“Holiday Affair” by Annie Seaton (contemporary, Entangled, March 2012, $2.99, 119pp)


Staid professor Lissy McIntyre believes that choosing a mate should be based on common sense, not runaway passion. And she would certainly never pick a rolling stone like Nick Richards for long-term love. But a red-hot, tropical romance? Oh, yeah. He’s got a body just made for sinning and his sizzling kisses leave her senseless.

When Nick blows into town, he’s stunned to discover that his no-nonsense new neighbor and co-worker is the same sultry creature he seduced for one night of forbidden island pleasure. He’s unaccustomed to staying in one place for long, but he just can’t seem to keep his hands off the multi-faceted woman. Will Nick break loyal Lissy’s heart or will she be the one woman he simply can’t walk away from?

Review: Game Misconduct

Written by Jennifer Porter

Game_Misconduct“Game Misconduct” by Bianca Sommerland (erotic, self-published, February 2012, $0.99, 314pp)


Series: The Dartmouth Cobras #1


The game has always cast a shadow over Oriana Delgado's life. She should hate the game. But she doesn't. The passion and the energy of the sport is part of her. But so is the urge to drop the role of the Dartmouth Cobra owner's 'good daughter' and find a less...conventional one.

Playmaker, Max Perron, never expected a woman to accept him and his twisted desires. Oriana came close, but he wasn't surprised when she walked away. A girl like her needs normal. Which he can't give her. He's too much of a team player, and not just on the ice.

Review: The Proposal

Written by Jennifer Porter

proposal-newface292The Proposal by Mary Balogh (historical, Delacorte, May 2012, $36.00, 320pp)


Lady Gwendoline Muir is rescued by Hugo Emes, Lord Trentham, an ex-military officer, while visiting a friend.  As she recovers the two develop a friendship, but fight their attraction as they struggle with class differences and inner demons.


This was a wonderful story.  Lady Gwendoline is a minor character in other books by Mary Balogh but one does not have to have read those books as this story stands independently on its own.
