Top Read
Daredevil and Dormouse, by Giulietta Jones ☆☆☆☆☆
Contemporary, sensual

Can a diffident dormouse and a rugged daredevil find lasting happiness? Widowed single-parent Sylvia Paget thinks not. Assistant to three wealthy, assertive bachelors should be a snap for a woman accustomed to life's challenges. Yet from her first day on the job--when she reports to work in her son's penguin costume--Sylvia's future at Sagorski Industries wobbles. Her intimidating new boss Mac Sagorski lacks that sense of whimsy so essential to any retiring mouse trying to pass herself off as an overdressed penguin. Nor is Sylvia a match for Mac's two elderly partners, who are bent on personal growth the hard way and attract more trouble than five ferrets in a box.

“I was amused and intrigued from the moment I read the blurb for this story….The dialogue is crisp, the plot simple but strong. Sylvia was really likeable and easy to empathise with. And Mac? Well, someone bring me a fan- he is HOT! Hot and gorgeous. This book is a feast…” – Vasiliki Scurfield, WRDF Reviews

Chasin’ Mason, by Stacey Joy Netzel ☆☆☆☆☆
Contemporary (Western), spicy

When his father announced his engagement to a gold-digger with a lying, scheming fourteen-year old daughter, seventeen-year old Tripp Warner left Warner Ridge Ranch and never looked back. Until the day he got the phone call that his father had died unexpectedly. Reggie Reed lives with her guilt every day but can't quite work up the courage to track down the son of the man who raised her as his own. When Tripp shows up at his father’s funeral eleven years later--and a hell of a man to be reckoned with--he has no interest in her too-late apology. Worse, they’ve inherited half shares of the family ranch—but only if they work together to catch Mason’s Gold, the stallion a young Reggie let escape and made sure Tripp took the blame for.

“Stacey Joy Netzel is at the top of her game with CHASIN’ MASON. I was hooked at page one and stayed hooked until the end....Once again Ms. Netzel has written a book to keep her fans satisfied and I look forward to the next book.” – Becky, Dark Angel Reviews …full review

The Painter’s Tempest in a Teapot,
by Nancy Lindley-Gauthier
Vintage, sweet

Berwick, Maine, 1921: Delightful Miss Sarah Woods, resident sophisticate (as she would most assuredly describe herself), graciously agrees to take on matchmaking duty for her young neighbor. Naturally, she must train young Lilly in aspects of culture and an appreciation of the finer things first. Then there is that careful balance to consider: the line between what would get her a man and what was too risqué for the gal's mother to tolerate.

“I have to say I found this story enchanting. It was engagingly written and delightful to read…. Brava to Nancy A. Lindley-Gauthier for creating a sparkling vignette for our reading pleasure. ” – Kate George, WRDF Reviews

Wayback Texas: Blackest Heart,
by Amber Leigh Williams
Contemporary (Western), spicy

America's Sweetheart, Stella Ridge has been away from Wayback for fifteen years paving her way to the top of the acting business. When a car accident leaves her physically and emotionally scarred, the only place she wants to go is home to Texas and her family's ranch. The changes that have taken place since her departure are enough to rock her world again. She uncovers a buried tragedy, struggles with the penetrating stares and questions from townsfolk, and comes up against an intriguing and unexpected spark with the silent cowboy and champion bull rider, Judd Black. Their wounded souls draw them together and Stella begins to realize that only in him can she find the solace she sought by leaving the bright lights of Hollywood.

“I was especially drawn to Judd, a nearly mute man who doesn’t really say much throughout the story, but whose silence and actions I found spoke volumes. ...[A]s [Stella] points out, with what may be one of my favorite phrases of the story, he has the “loudest stare” that she has ever seen.... "Blackest Heart" is a wonderful story with characters that will touch the heart and I for one am glad I got the chance to read it.” – Lilac, Long and Short Reviews
