Stripped Bounty by Dorothy F. Shaw (erotic, self published, August 2016)

 

Summary:
Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.

 

Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.

 

After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.

 

When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.

 

So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.

MakeMeLoveYouMake Me Love You by Johanna Lindsey (historical, Gallery, July 2016)

 

Summary:
One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.

 

Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.

Mini Reviews for Week of May 16, 2016

wickedheartWicked Heart by Leisa Rayven (contemporary, St. Martin’s Griffin, May 2016)
In Wicked Heart by Leisa Rayven, the third book in the Starcrossed series, is a cute, yet emotional romance reuniting Liam Quinn and Elissa Holt. These two met and fell in love five years ago on the set of Liam’s first acting job where Lissa was the stage manager. Liam was on the cusp of stardom and ended up breaking Lissa’s heart when he moved across the country and started dating his co-star. Fast forward to a new play where Liam and his now fiance (Angel) are starring in another stage production that Lissa is managing. There are some seriously unresolved feelings between Liam and Lissa, despite his commitment to Angel - who happens to be a sweet and caring woman. There is no evil fiance to act as romantic foil here. Things aren’t necessarily what they seem between Liam and Angel, and this situation provides the majority of the external conflict.

 

Overall, this one is a heartwarming romance with some very funny moments. This story will satisfy fans of the reunited lovers trope - and possibly make them hate publicists and agents.
