Annalise Gallagher wanted Elijah Burleigh. Plain and simple. She’d watched him from afar for months, her friends called her ‘his own personal stalker’, and then she made a wish on a magic pendant for a full-body makeover. Transformed into the gorgeous knockout she’d always wanted to be, she asked Elijah out on a date and wore a haute couture gown straight from Paris to his friend’s wedding.
With just twenty-four hours on the clock, her enchanted night faded into the morning hours and everything crashed down around her. Annalise harbored a shameful secret and Elijah demanded the truth with the veil of magic gone.
The truth, however, could destroy her fragile confidence and push him away forever.
I truly enjoyed this final book in the Cinderella series. It was a wonderful book that although short was highly entertaining and extremely romantic. I loved the girls in these books and will surely miss them now that their story has come to an end. I hope that you take the time to read them as well, as I believe everyone that loves this genre will enjoy these books.
Maid-of-Honor Dani Brown can handle anything that comes her way when it comes to her best friend’s wedding. That is, until the bride asks for a huge favor—Dani needs to distract the best man, who happens to be Dani's ex. The ex she has fantasized dismembering for a year now. The ex she’ll have to suck it up and play nice with if this wedding is to go off without a hitch.
Businessman Jamie Kingsland is back in Seattle for a wedding. There’s just one problem – the maid of honor wants him dead. Except she doesn’t. Even though he knows he broke her heart last year when things got too serious and he panicked and left, she’s being way too nice about it now. And it scares him.
Something is up with his favorite bridesmaid, and he’s determined to find out what…
This was a cute book about love lost and found again. I loved the whole secret bride requests...and hope that we get to find out about the others in future books to come. I really loved the characters in the story, not just the main ones but the supporting ones as well. This was definitely a well rounded story, if a little short.
All she can remember is hunger...for him.
A year ago, Alexandria Stevens strode through the doors of Wicked Ways and into the arms of a man—a monster, really—who stole everything from her. Her memory. Her life. Now she's a creature of darkness with only hazy images in her mind of that night and a confusing jumble of emotions. A fierce hate...and an even fiercer desire for Markus Santini.
Markus has walked through this world for more than a hundred years, knowing exactly who and what he was, until Alexandria undid it all. Undid him. When a former vampire colleague threatens one of the Enclave’s own, Markus is needed—but only as the dark, powerful creature he once was. And in order to become that, he must find redemption...in the arms of a woman who despises him with every breath she can no longer take.
This book was enthralling. It was an amazing love story with a touch of Darkness all wrapped in paranormal. I loved every minute of it and found it to be one of the best vampire romances I've come across, I would definitely rate this up there with the Carpathian novels of Christine Feehan's world. If you love vampire novels I recommend you take the time to read this one.
At sixteen, Alasdair Gilbride, heir to a Scottish earldom, fled the Highlands and an arranged betrothal. Ten years later, Alasdair must travel home to face his responsibilities. It’s a task that would be much easier without the distracting presence of the most enticing woman he’s ever met…
After one escapade too many, Eden Whitney has been snubbed by the ton. The solution: rusticating in the Scottish wilderness, miles from all temptation. Except, of course, for brawny, charming Alasdair. The man is so exasperating she’d likely kill him before they reach the border—if someone else weren’t trying to do just that. Now Eden and Alasdair are plunging into a scandalous affair with his life and her reputation at stake—and their hearts already irreparably lost…
This was a suspense laden romance worth reading. I love all the twists and turns of this novel, you never knew what was going to happen next or who the actual villain really is. It truly keeps you turning the pages to see what would happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope you will take the time to read it too. I have definitely found a new series to read.
It has been twenty years since Lord William Wattles laid eyes on Annabelle Frost. Still, he remembers everything—her ethereal beauty, her bookish intelligence, her surprisingly modern attitudes about love...and lust. But Belle's allegedly wanton behavior led her father to send her away to save the family's reputation. Now she resides at Spinster House in the village of Loves Bridge, where an unmarried lady can live—and in Belle's case, support herself as a librarian—in peace...
Beautiful, passionate Belle—sworn off marriage? William can't believe the woman he once knew could end up like this. But when the hands of fate bring him to Loves Bridge, his long-lost love might just end up back in his arms. Is their unwavering desire worth the sweeping scandal that is sure to follow them both? Absolutely.
This was a surprisingly sweet story about love lost and found again, loss, and happiness. I truly enjoyed this book and happy to say I have found a new author who's books I will enjoy. I hope you decide to take a chance on this book, as I believe you will enjoy it as much as I have.

Vampire socialite Melissa Redgrave has the worst luck with men. Frustrated, she decides what she needs is a little help...from New York's biggest supernatural dating agency. Except that sometimes, a vampire doesn't always find her match.
Until she does. And he's delicious enough to bite.
Tarian Drake keeps his necromancy background quiet. After all, the ability to control the dead isn't exactly welcomed in the supernatural community. When he runs into the beautiful Melissa, she tempts him in a way that has never happened before. She’s his perfect match in every way.
But just as they are about to take their relationship to the next level, his family decides to make a stand—by kidnapping his new girlfriend. Now, if he ever hopes to date again, he’s going to have to get control of his family and free the girl. Oh, and stop a war.
This was an excellent book. I love the idea of a supernatural dating service, and the people in this book come alive in the story. The fact that they are mortal enemies gives it quiet the Romeo and Juliet feel, and makes the story all the more intriguing. I will definitely be looking forward to more stories in this series, will be getting the first book as well. I think everyone in the PR loving world will like this book.
Omar Esterly is married to his job. But when Omar sets his sights on a potential, family-oriented client, his confirmed bachelorhood becomes a problem. Fortunately, his friend and employee, Devi Boss, has the perfect plan…
Okay, so it wasn't exactly Devi's plan to become her friend's fake fiancée. Lies aren't her style. However, Omar offers her a big, beautiful raise—enough to track down the missing father she's never known—and Devi reluctantly agrees to the whole engagement hoax…
This was supposed to be a no-strings-attached win-win for both Devi and Omar, but when they cross the line between friendship and…well, something more, Devi realizes she’s made a huge mistake that just might cost her both job and friend—falling for her fiancé.
This was a wonderful book. I love when friends become lovers , especially when it's unexpected on both their parts. The plot twist near the end however is what put this book above the rest in its genre. I highly recommend everyone take an afternoon to read this book, I believe you will enjoy it a much as me.
Bad boy Zane Wolfe has always been wild and reckless. Even though he’s hot for his high school sweetheart, Candi Brooks, settling down has never been in his plans. Beyond that, he’s changing in strange ways—and begins to wonder if there's truth to the local folklore that claims his family is cursed to be werewolves...
There's never been a time when waitress Candi didn't have a serious weakness for Zane and his intense, dark sex appeal. She craves him. But after her life changes dramatically, and Zane won’t commit, Candi’s reached her limit. She can't wait forever...so she's taking her heart off the table before it gets good and broken.
Something mysterious is going on in Wolfe Creek, and danger stalks Candi. Zane will do anything he can to protect her. But the one person she needs protection from might just be him…
This is not your traditional werewolf novel. In fact for most of the book I really hated the hero of the book. However the more I read the more I could see how hard he was having and felt bad for the couple and what it was putting them through. If you like books that leave you guessing as to what will happen next through the whole book then you should definitely read this one.
Navy SEAL Miles Dumbrowski is on his way back to war. He isn’t supposed to fall in love.
Piper Harrington left San Diego behind, looking for adventure in Europe. The no-strings, easy-breezy kind of adventure.
Now her heart is headed to the Middle East with a man she won’t see for months. But Miles seems intent on proving he's worth the wait for that second date.
First I would like to take a second and thank all the men and women in the US Armed Forces for doing what they do to keep us safe. This book was very emotional for me at times, I loved every minute of it and read it all the way through in one sitting. I truly loved Piper and Miles and they're sweet love story. This is a truly amazing story and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Calypso, Queen of the Seas, is mad. Spitting mad. Ghosts of the dead are fouling her waters. She wants this problem fixed, and she wants it fixed now. Rushing off in search of Hades, Lord of the Underworld, to demand answers, she’s soon shocked to discover him bound and standing trial before a jury of his peers—for nothing less than murder.
Calypso normally despises the beastly gods, all of them, but there’s something about seeing Hades bound as he is that gives her an evilly clever idea. Tired of being a virgin queen, she wishes to shed that boring image once and for all, and no one seems quite as fit for the task as the gorgeous and brooding Hades. Of course, there is the minor problem of murder to deal with, but Calypso is bound and determined to have her way.
And when a dark queen gets an idea, nothing and no one can stand in her way…
This book was truly amazing! I have read everything this author has written and she still never ceases to amaze me. The Sea Queen is an enthralling love story between Calypso and Hades, a couple I would never have thought of but from the mind of Jovee Winters it is a masterpiece. As album over f twisted fairy tales I can only encourage all of you to read this book and hope that you enjoy it at least half as much as I did.

Passion that takes no prisoners, and love that tests the limits of ecstasy . . .
Fenn Lockwood comes alive in the shadows. Though he might have physically survived the kidnapping that stole his childhood, the trauma and pain he lived through have marked him forever. Now the only place where Fenn can be himself is within the walls of his private BDSM world—a place of erotic obsession, where desire isn't just captured . . . it's bound.
Hayden Thorne knows that behind Fenn's hardened exterior is a man worth fighting for. Yet to save him from the past that still haunts him, Hayden will have to abandon every inhibition she's ever had and venture into Fenn's intoxicatingly sensual world. Each tantalizing second she spends in Fenn's searing embrace is more delicious than the last and soon Hayden begins to think that she may never want to leave such torturous bliss . . .
This book was HOT! I loved every second of it. The combination of Erotica, romance, and suspense was masterful. I went into this series not knowing what I would think only to be blown away. It has you biting your nails one minute then crying your eyes out the next, only to want to hug the characters by the next page. This story is a true page turner and I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. Lauren Smith just blew me away with this one!
He’s all business…until he’s all hers
Brody Flynn waited years to get his revenge on Douglass Shipping for his parents’ accidental deaths. Now the company is fumbling, profits are down, and it’s the perfect time for a hostile takeover. Vengeance. But the former CEO’s daughter Kate Douglass has other plans…
Kate’s been waiting for her chance to take on a real role at Douglass and prove to her family that she’s not the fragile piece of glass they all think she is. There’s no way she’ll give up without a fight. All she has to do is convince the gorgeous new CEO to hire her…and not fall for him.
But Brody was never supposed to feel attracted to the daughter of his enemy. He was never supposed to want her as hard as he does. And the only thing stronger than his hunger for revenge is his hunger for her…
This book was Amazing. I loved the complicated mess that was their relationship. The book showed life can be messy and sometimes good can come out of tragedy. Brody definitely didn't have a clear path and I believe Kate was the perfect person to show him the way. I loved this couple' and I hope we get to see Seth's story sometime in the future.

Duplicity. Desire. Denial. They were doomed from the start.
Ryan Howard has zero interest in the movie being filmed in Pine Harbour or the high maintenance stars staying in the cottages at the end of his lane. He's just barely holding on to the raw remains of his life and the fantasy world being concocted around him is, as far as he's concerned, a complete waste of time and energy. The one bright light in his life is an intern on the set, Holly Cresinski, and their quiet conversations at the end of the day on his back porch.
Holly hates her life, too, which is entirely unfair because she’s blessed beyond measure. She’s at the top of her career--as film actress, Hope Creswell--and surrounded by people that mean well. But Ryan makes her laugh, and cry, and before she can find the words to explain her deception, he kisses her.
I loved this book. I was so glad that Ryan got his own story. He deserved happiness after all that he had been through, and Holly was perfect for him and his children. I loved this story and cannot wait for the next in this series. I have truly fallen in love with the people of Pine Harbor. This is a stand novel but if you haven't read the previous books of this series I recommend you do so. You will fall in love with them too
