SWEET KISS OF SUMMERSOPHIE GUNN
Posted: Sept. 8, 2013

Nina Stokes's life is far from picture perfect. For years the small-town artist has waited for the day she'd be able to fulfill her late brother's wishes and hand over his rambling house to its new owner. Yet when a sexy stranger arrives on her doorstep, key in hand, Nina realizes she's not ready to let go of the house and all its memories-not until she gets some answers to what really happened to her brother.

Mick Rivers may be a hard-as-nails soldier, but throwing a woman out of her house isn't his style. Neither is dredging up memories of the past-a past he is struggling to remember. He desperately needs to sell the house, but he finds the brown-eyed beauty with the open heart and warm smile impossible to resist. So instead of moving on, Mick moves in. As sweet summer days lead to sizzling summer nights, Mick must finally face his fears. But can he tell Nina the secrets haunting his heart, without breaking hers…

The elite Martinis & Bikinis Club challenges you to risk it all. But once you pick a dare, there's no backing out "Seduce the man you are most attracted to. Tonight." Boston bar owner Lindsay Beckham is in shock. She created the M&B club for all the feisty females who frequent Chassy. She has to fulfill her dare. Why not with Denver Langston, who mixes a mean Sex on the Beach cocktail?

"Slowly get to know the woman you are most attracted to. Think long-term." Denver's fallen hard for Lindsay, but he knows she's vulnerable and hiding something. When she's suddenly seducing him over martinis, he's not about to complain.

But can this wild sexual ride go drastically off course?

MY REVIEW:

Martini Diaries is a totally sexy series that is a must read. Your partner will love you reading this. OMG!!!

MIDNIGHT PROMISES #8SHERRYL WOODS
Posted: Sept. 8, 2013

When Elliott Cruz first courted struggling single mom Karen Ames, it it was a romance worthy of any Sweet Magnolia fantasy. The sexy personal trainer made it his mission to restore Karen's strength—physical and emotional—and to charm her children.

Now, a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear a few years into the marriage, colliding dreams threaten to tear them them apart. Elliott's desire to finance the business opportunity of a lifetime with their hard-earned "baby money" stirs Karen's deep-rooted financial insecurities. It's the discovery that their brother-in-law is cheating on Elliott's sister—and thinks it's justified—that puts their irreconcilable differences into perspective. Will their own loving fidelity be a bond so strong they can triumph against all odds?

MY REVIEW:

I love anything Sweet Magnolia…

1961: For most black Americans, these were times of hope. For former P.I. Easy Rawlins, Los Angeles mean streets were never meaner...or more deadly. Ordinarily, Easy would have thrown the two bills in the sleazy shamus' face -- the white man who wanted him to find the notorious Black Betty, an ebony siren whose talent for all things rich and male took her from Houston's Fifth Ward to Beverly Hills. There was too much Easy wasn't being told, but he couldn't resist the prospect of seeing Betty again, even if it killed him....

HUBBY'S REVIEW:

Another good story. This one takes you from Beverly Hills to Riverside and Norton Air Force Base. Which has been closed since the 90's but @ one time was a very busy place. I like when he says things like going to the country, Riverside. Back then it was full of orange groves and farm land. Not now a much different place. Easy is not finding it easy to find Betty. He gets know help …
