The Bunny and the Billionaire

(Dreamspun Desires 43)
by

Louisa Masters

Spending their fortunes and losing their hearts.

Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy Léo Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. Léo, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only Léo’s world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.

As they make allowances for each other’s foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and Léo widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance and they’re not ready to say goodbye.

Torin

by

Lance Withton

Torin’s anxiety has made it difficult for him to navigate romantic relationships, so instead of trying, he keeps himself occupied with his work. But just because he doesn’t chase relationships doesn’t mean he doesn’t want something, even if he has to get it with a dash of taboo.

At Pillar, the only all-male brothel in the city, Torin makes an appointment with a charming sex worker who goes by the name “Davies.” It becomes hard for Torin to keep his emotions out of the intimacy, and his feelings become more complicated when a designer he works with starts to let on that his interest is more than platonic.

Blurb: Crossing the border into love.

Snap decisions and misguided ideas bring Portuguese national Mateus Fontes and businessman Crawford Hargrave together at the Canadian border crossing.

Mateus is caught in a catch-22. With his almost-expired tourist visa, entrance to Canada is denied, but the US won’t let him back in either. Crawford thinks he’s solved things when he tells the border agent they’re engaged, and it works – except now they have to actually get married before either of them can get back into the United States. But Crawford has been burned by marriage once, and he’s determined not to make that mistake again.

Neither of them expects real feelings to bloom out of their fake marriage, but they do. And the two of them have to learn how to be honest with each other to make things work, which is especially hard when their entire marriage is based on lies.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I’ve not read or listen to much by Bru Baker in the past, although I did actually read this book when it came out, I was more than happy to go back and listen to the audio. The title of the book, Tall, Dark and Deported, gives you most of the information that you need to know about the type of story you’re about to read or listen to.

What you see is definitely what you get with the blurb. We got one hot South American (sorry, can’t think of his country of origin from the top of my head), Mateus. He’s done something rather silly and used the internet to get answers about how to “reset” his visa. He wants to stay with his brother and sister in law longer now that they are setting up their own orchard and his sister in law is about to have a baby. He’s excited about being an uncle and wants to be there. That why, at the airport, he meets Crawfard. Crawford is a businessman and after meeting Mateus, he is willing to help the guy, which of course means marriage!

Despite being a predictable plot, this is totally enjoyable as way as to just lose yourself. As I said in the opening sentence, you will need to suspend your disbelief but that don’t let that deter you from the sweet romance (well, insta-love romance) that unfolds between the two men.

I’ve been hearing a number of audios narrated by Dorian Bane recently and I have to say that I am beginning really like his narration. He has a very warm sounding voice which makes listening to books a pleasure – in some cases enjoying the audio more than when I actually read the book. I will admit that there was probably a smidge of this happening for this book as well.

My only thing is that sometimes the accent Bane uses for Europeans characters (in this case Portugese) tends to sound more Russian sometimes (or for a few moments every so often he reminds me of the Count from Sesame Street). I don’t think it makes the narration terrible, but it just disrupts my concentration for a few moments every so often.

Blurb: A little bundle of joy means big changes.

Hoss McMasters has a working ranch, a bull riding career, a nosy momma, and a best friend he’s been in love with since he can remember. He’s a busy, happy cowboy, living the good life.

Then one morning he discovers a baby on his doorstep.

Well, Hoss does what any reasonable man would do – he calls his momma and his buddy, Sheriff Pooter, and they head to the clinic to see if Doc knows of any suddenly not-so-pregnant girls.

In the meantime, Hoss and his best friend, Bradley, have their hands full trying to care for an infant, run a ranch, and deal with the sudden confession that Bradley doesn’t hate Hoss for coming out to him in high school. In fact, Bradley’s been trying to catch Hoss’s attention for damn near a decade.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: For me, BA Tortuga has always been an author I can take or leave. I don’t dislike any of her books, really, but more the writing style sometimes leaves me feeling a bit nonplussed. But still I keep on going back because the type of stories Tortuga writes are what I like. I know, I’m a person of many contradictions and whatnot.

Now see, here’s a funny thing. I read and reviewed this book and gave it a 3.5/5… then I forgot about my opinion and listened to the audio and rated it a 5/5. For some reason I just loved listening to the audio, whereas I merely enjoyed reading the book. No idea why, but that’s how it goes. I’m fairly sure that a good part of the reason was because of the narration by Dorian Bane – I loved the voice he gave the cowboys and made me feel a new level of emotion which I don’t remember from when I simply read the book myself. The actual idea of the story and the whole “cowboys looking after a baby and finally reveal their feelings for each other” plot device – absolutely perfect. I also loved the touch of soap opera type of drama introduced when it comes to said baby’s paternity.

The story is about Hoss (ok, as it had done when I read the book, the nick name Hoss seriously rubbed me the wrong way again) and his best friend since childhood, Bradley. They are both cowboys and have been secretly in love with each other years. One day, Hoss finds a baby randomly left on his door step and through some convoluted reasoning, he ends up looking after the baby girl with the help of his friend. The story works in two parts, 1) Hoss and Bradley getting together, where one is out and the other is in the closet still, and, 2) looking after the baby and the mystery of where she came from.

There was a twist at the end that came from nowhere, it’s a bit unbelievable, so people that like things to be more relatable may need to enter with an open mind. Seriously, when I say this is something you would see on Days of Our Lives /Neighbours/Coronation Street, believe it.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Another fantastic installment of the spirit of sage series as Freddy, a dual shifter is featured front and center as he comes back after three years. He finds his mate in a lion shifter who ran from the circus along with others. Needless to say it’s more than the two in this story as Flashpoint makes an appearance and trouble comes knocking to Sage once again.

I simply love this series. It’s full of romance, suspense, mystery and action. Each story takes up where the last leaves off so it is best to read them in order.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Cory’s had a rough year struggling with severe depression. He’s desperate to rebuild his shattered life and break away from his demanding family. When his therapist encourages him to do something for himself, he knows exactly what he needs. I want to see Asher again. The best friend Corey ever had who, at fifteen, held Cory’s heart in his hands without knowing it.

Asher’s had a troubled relationship with his father since he came out. Now that Pops is sick, he’s fighting for his right to help or even find out about his father’s health. Then there’s the complication of an ex-boyfriend unwilling to let go.

When Cory and Asher meet again after sixteen years, Cory’s feelings are as strong as ever. But does Asher feel the same? 

Purchase Link: JMS Books | Amazon US | Amazon UK | Smashwords

Review: After living the life his family wants him to Cory has reached rock bottom, struggling with severe depression Cory decides to follow his therapist’s advice and looks for the best friend he’d left behind sixteen years before. Asher is worried about his father’s health but the old man refuses to have much to do with him since he came out to him. Asher’s surprised when Cory walks back into his life and the easy friendship the pair had years ago falls back into place, but with something more between them.

This is a wonderful sweet story that is an easy and enjoyable read. Cory is a wonderful character who has been worn down by the demands of his family and a job he hates, pulling himself out of the deep depression has been hard for him but the one thing that sticks with him is the happiness he once felt when he had him best friend by his side. Returning to that boy has Cory once again glimpsing happiness and he finds a backbone to finally get his family off his back.

Asher is an incredible man who has fought hard to stay in his father’s life, with his dad sick he does what he can but he feels the distain and hate with every gruff word uttered by the man. Asher finds happiness with Cory and he also finds so much more when Cory refuses to let Asher’s dad chase him off.

I really enjoyed this story, Cory and Asher make a wonderful couple, their romance is sweet and their support for each other is fantastic. They are both there for the other as they deal with their families, and while one is a lost cause the other gives Cory and Asher hope.  

There are some moments of tension in the story with Asher’s ex-boyfriend providing one moment, Asher’s dad one or two more and Cory’s family… well let’s just say they should be dumped in the ocean because I doubt that a bigger bunch of control freaks and snobs who couldn’t give a damn about what their son and grandson wants exists.

I recommend this story to those who love fantastic characters reconnecting and discovering love, who adore stories of overcoming limitations and moving forward, who love sweet romances with a dash of sexy, and who love men who refuse to turn their backs on a challenge and face it head on.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Each book in the Wildfire collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Damn sexy men, danger, mercenaries, guns, action and excitement all rolled into one amazing package. Jordan lost the man of his heart to an accident and from that day forth figured it was just him. He was afraid to try to love again, but the sexy ass sherif was sure making it hard. Mason has his own set of problems, a past that was coming back to bite him in the ass. When these two men hook up, they are going to set the sheets on fire.

Lynn Hagen was one of the first author’s of this genre that I came across and knew that she would become on of my all time favorite authors. She hasn’t let me down yet, I can tell you that. A fresh new world that just seems to have the best damn men to be around. Each one of them has an amount of danger and excitement mixed in with so much more.

I had quite a bit of fun reading this and can not wait to get started on the next book. Sexy men with guns and rides a motorcycle just makes a girl want to scream or in this case one sexy man who uses his hands a lot. I would definitely recommend this book.

Veronica’s Review: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Jordan, one of the workers from the Lockmere Construction Company that is restoring the small town in the mountains, has some demons of his own to work through, but from the moment that he saw the newly appointed Sheriff ride into town, he’s got the hots for him. Jordan, however, has convinced himself that he’s the reason he’s the cause of his last boyfriend’s death, and he doesn’t want another death on his conscious if he gets involved with the Sheriff.

Mason sees Jordan and wants him, but he’s been in some rough situations in his life and his previous job that he would like to be out of, but as he says, leaving that job isn’t an option. He came to Wildfire to start a fresh life and a new job. Jordan and Mason hook up, but then Jordan family drama intrudes, and then Mason has to go out of town to do a job, but the situation is beyond his control, when his assignment takes him back to save Jordan and his friends that he got close to in Wildfire, to save them from a crazed madman.

I would definitely recommend this series to anyone interested.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: With Haven on an extended honeymoon with Sammy, bad guys around the world are breathing a lot easier. No one is better at permanently removing these lowlifes who target children—and the brutal murder of two teenage girls makes clear it’s past time to return to work. Haven’s first assignment back results in a new family member and a renewed sense of urgency to protect and avenge the innocent.

There is nothing ‘usual’ about the business of hunting predators, but when several of Haven’s fellow agents are killed, a pattern emerges. The hunters have become the prey, tools in a bitter vendetta for a perceived wrong.

Despite years of working alone, when the target shifts to someone unexpected, Haven calls in reinforcements—a friend to stand between the family he loves and a ruthless killer. Teamwork may be the only way to win this fight—unless it’s already too little, too late.

Haven tries to approach this as he would any other assignment. Find your enemy and make sure they suffer before you eliminate them. But when a member of his team goes off-book and ends up dead, everything changes. It’s no longer a battle.

Purchase Link: B&N | Kobo | iTunes | Amazon Universal Link | Smashwords

Review: This book is part of a series and must be read in order.

Haven and Sammy have been taking it easy and Haven is wondering if he’ll ever be ready to return to work. Saving the innocent is something Haven’s been driven to do and with Sammy there to support him he knows that what he does is necessary. There’s something heading their way, someone is slowly picking agents and their family members off and it’s up to Haven and his friends to put a stop to a deranged killer before it’s too late.

Holy damn, Parker Williams has outdone himself this time around. Haven’s War takes a very personal turn as Haven and the guys are targeted, and even Haven wonders if he can keep them all safe.

We are compelled by the opening scenes to keep reading this story, right from the onset it grabs you by the throat and drags you along as you keep turning page after page… all the while a sense of dread and danger build up as you realise the very real danger Haven, Sammy, Kelly and Rook face this time around.

Reading this story isn’t easy, Parker Williams sends us on an emotional roller coaster from happiness, despair, anger, glee and frustration. Our hearts are torn out by what Haven and Sammy face, we shake our fists at the authors sadistic muse and we feel a secret glee when the baddie gets just what he deserves.

We find ourselves fascinated by the characters as they become real in our minds, they are so fully realised that the depth to them makes their journey your journey. We see the continuing love between Haven and Sammy; their relationship is just perfect for them. And we see the growth in their little family as Kelly settles in more as the father figure.

There are some scenes that are tough to read, I mean really tough, there isn’t the level of danger to the innocents like in Haven’s Creed but by God the level of danger that heads straight Haven’s way is astounding. Yes there is quite a bit of blood and gore, devastating loss and senseless violence but damn this is one fantastic read.

I can’t delve into the story because this is really something that you need to read yourself (make sure to read Haven’s Creed first though), and yes there will be times that you shake your head in pure *what the fuckery* and seethe as you wonder how quickly you can hunt down the author and skin him alive (although, he does need to write more books in this series first).

I recommend this to those who love darker grittier stories, who adore damaged characters who manage to find their way in life (even if it is as a killer), who admire characters who come to life, and a shocking storyline that won’t let you take a break.

Blurb: Love isn’t always responsible.

After Micky O’Neill is remanded in custody for breaching his court order, his already tempestuous relationship with Dan Peters is tested to the limits.

Having to battle their way through a court case that could end with Micky in jail, social workers breaking up the family home, and the return of Micky’s deadbeat father, it seems everything is set to destroy their relationship before it even had the chance to start.

With such high stakes involved, not just for Micky but for once-burned, twice-shy Dan, they both have to learn that falling in love isn’t always responsible.

Purchase Link: Pride | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order.

After the startling end to Misdemeanor we have an explosive beginning in Hard Time, Micky’s been arrested and is facing a police sergeant who has it out for him. Micky has a lot to lose if the Courts throw the book at him; it’s dodgy now with Flynn being placed in emergency foster care but it’s lucky for Micky that he has Dan in his corner.

In this new addition in the Responsible Adults series we see some huge dangers that Micky faces, he has decisions to make and Micky learns he can’t always rely on his fists to sort his problems out. Micky’s dangers aren’t physical they are mainly mental, because Micky could lose everything he’s working towards if he doesn’t break the cycle of his reactions.

Dan is an amazing support for both Micky and Flynn, he’s there for Flynn while Micky is locked up and he’s also there for Micky as Micky struggles to keep control of his life. Dan is just amazing and his family are just wonderful, Dan is so lucky to have such a supportive family.

Micky’s and Dan’s relationship grows in leaps and bounds, while they might have only been together a short amount of time their feelings for each other are solid. They face a lot in the short time line of this book, you have Micky’s impending court case, social services sniffing around Flynn, Micky’s dad pushing his luck and Dan’s decision regarding his job.

I really enjoyed this story; C.F. White doesn’t just give us the rosy view of Flynn’s disability C.F. gives it all in technicolor so we end up taking Micky deeper into our hearts as we see just what he has dealt with by himself for years. We also get to see Jason (Micky’s best friend) again and we can also see the huge change in him as well, there’s a lot of growing for several characters in this story and it’s a pleasure to see.

I recommend this story to those who love great characters who develop and grow, two men supporting each other through thick and thin, loving and supportive parents and friends, an adorable little boy who will steal your heart, and a great ending that hints at more to come.

All Dusk wants out of life is for his band to become world famous. He also wants to have a lot of fun along the way. And to get his rocks off. When he wants something, he goes for it, consequences be damned.

Review: Man see’s boy, man wants boy. Dusk is the leader of The Underdogs, an up and coming band. When he spots cute pink haired Lolly/Abe he knows he has to have him. From the moment they met unbeknownst to them it was destiny.

Amid the hot and sexy times between them their relationship deepens until a picture of the two surface for all to see. This causes a slight hiccup as Dusk is not out. I loved the way Dusk tried to set everything right after Abe is paid to be his pretend mate.

Feelings get hurt when Dusk messes everything up. But oh the make up was so sweet. I loved the chemistry between these two and the way they handled themselves.

Great read.

Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.

He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.

To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world. Struggling with their well-meaning help and the startling mess from spilled ketchup and noxious-smelling sweets, he’s encouraged to re-examine how he feels about Will and to decide what kind of journey he’d really like them to take together.

Garry and Will have been friends for quite sometime, but Garry wants more. He is about to get the help of two darling angels, he never expected. I would love to go on about this story, but guess you should read it. Don’t want to give to much of it away.

It is a very sweet little love story that will brighten your day. I just wished it had not been so short, because I would have loved to see Garry’s expression at the end. It was funny as hell and entertained me quite a bit. I would definitely recommend this book. It is perfect for a short little break in life.

All plans hit a wall when photos of Abe and Dusk emerge online, suddenly pushing the band into the spotlight. To take advantage of the sudden popularity, the band offers Abe money for staying.

Which means money for being in a fake relationship with Dusk.

Which isn’t even fake.

Or is it?

Between A Rock and A Hard Place

(London Lads 05 / Perchance to Dream 11)

Garry’s at the end of his tether. He’s waiting at Glasgow Airport to meet his friend Will, on their way to a holiday in a Scottish Highlands hotel. Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.

He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.

To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world. Struggling with their well-meaning help and the startling mess from spilled ketchup and noxious-smelling sweets, he’s encouraged to re-examine how he feels about Will and to decide what kind of journey he’d really like them to take together.
