Dirtiest-Secret-comps-finalDirtiest Secret by J. Kenner (erotic, Random House, April 2016)

 

Series: S.I.N., book one of trilogy

 

Summary:
It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.

 

The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.

 

Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.

strandedStranded by HelenKay Dimon (contemporary, m/m, Riptide, November 2015)
This holiday novella from HelenKay Dimon features Brax and Cabe, two men who have been torn apart by the fallout from their dangerous spy-type work . . . and the fact that Brax tried to kill Cabe. I mean, how does one come back from that? Fortunately, Dimon knows her way around a story. Cabe gets sent on a mission which leads him to a remote cabin in the cold wilderness and Brax, who is keen to make up with his one-time lover. Cabe, however, isn’t so keen.

 

Currently, HelenKay Dimon is one of my go-to authors. She never disappoints, delivering great romances - often with suspense. This novella only hints at a suspense plot, the romance between Cabe and Brax taking center stage. I certainly recommend Stranded to fans of m/m romance and to those who enjoy reading about military-type heroes.

Spurt Count: 1

Review: Until There Was You

until_there_was_you“Until There Was You” by Jessica Scott (contemporary, Random House Digital, October 2012, $2.99, 250pp)

 

Summary:
A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Captain Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure--except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya. From that moment on, though, Evan has been at odds with her, through two deployments to Iraq and back again. But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.

Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to earn the rank on her chest. In Evan, Claire sees a rigid officer who puts the rules before everything else--including his people. When the mission forces them together, Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye. He's more than the rank on his chest; he's a man with dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other.

Review: Paris in Love

paris_350“Paris in Love” by Eloisa James (memoir, Random House, April 2012, $26.00, 273pp)

 

Summary:
In 2009, New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: she sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor, and moved her family to Paris. Paris in Love: A Memoir chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

 

With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow or cars to park, Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life—discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen's sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband's notions of quality time, her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools—not to mention puberty—in a foreign language, and her mother-in-law Marina's raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as Marina overfeeds Milo, the family dog).
