    After their disastrous parting, Margaret Lark thought she was through with Rafe Cassidy. So when he shows up on her doorstep a year later with a shocking proposal, Margaret has no choice but to put her heart on the line again - even if it means winning back the cowboy who stole it in the first place.

    I thought this was an excellent book. I have found very few books by this author that I didn't like and this was one of her best.

    Michael J. Sullivan garnered critical raves and a massive readership for his Riyria Revelations series. The first book in his highly anticipated Riyria Chronicles series of prequels, The Crown Tower brings together warrior Hadrian Blackwater with thieving assassin Royce Melborn. The two form a less-than-friendly pairing, but the quest before them has a rare prize indeed, and if they can breach the supposedly impregnable walls of the Crown Tower, their names will be legend.

    I don't usually like to write reviews but I felt it only fair to the author that I do so. I kept skipping over this book and reading other ones until I finally decided it was time. Now I can't wait to read the second book. This book had so many twist and turns and a great ending that I really didn't want it to end. I enjoyed the fact that the author took time to explain the why and how of this series.

    Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

    I have listened to a lot of books and enjoyed most but this book has to be at the top of my list. It isn't what one would expect in a romance book. It has a wonderful plot and totally different in all aspects. Both characters are easy to like and fun to try to guess what each one will do next. Well worth a credit. I hope audible can acquire some more of her books.

    Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

    Story

    I half expected this book to be like a lot like all of the other historical romance books. I was pleasantly surprised to find it very different. Adding the children to the story made it different and a great joy. They were as fun as the main characters were wonderful. I loved the book from beginning to end. The mystery in the book was an added pleasure and kept me guessing.

    The most dangerous and desirable man in all of England, Nikolas burns to possess Emma Stokehurst, but the proud, headstrong beauty is promised to another. Still, there are no limits to how far the wealthy, bitter exile will go to win her exquisite hand - though owning Emma’s body, but not her love, will do nothing to fill the empty spaces in his heart. But Nikolas’s destiny awaits him elsewhere, as passion’s magic transports him to a different place - a land of splendor and romantic dreams.

    This is not one of my favorites by LK but it is really hard to pick a bad one. It was confusing in parts but ended well. I am glad I started with one of her other books.

    For six agonizing years Heather Tremont Leonetti tried to make a lie of the breathless summer when rodeo rider Turner Brooks broke her innocence and branded her heart. But now only the truth could save her most precious, cherished memento. Which meant she'd have to beg the help of the one man who could drive her to her knees - the proud, unforgiving loner she'd loved ... the unforgettable cowboy who'd sired her son.

    I just recently found Lisa Jackson and have read both of her cowboy books(Secrets & Lies) and loved them both. The storylines were both entertaining and with likeable heros and heroines. I look forward to reading more of her books.

    I thought Chance McKenzie was one of my favorite heros. Linda makes her characters so true to life. The plot was great and kept me reading well into the night to finish and see the outcome. I only hope this is NOT the end of the McKenzie family. I especially like the ending when everyone gets to meet with everyone else in the McKenzie family and how they all help each other in time of need. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite from this series. I love them all.

    THIS IS THE FIRST OF THE MACKENZIE BOOKS THAT FELL A LITTLE SHORT IN MOST AREAS. I AM NOT SURE WHAT WAS MISSING. IT WAS GOOD BUT NOT ONE I WOULD READ AGAIN REAL SOON LIKE I WOULD THE OTHER MACKENZIE BOOKS. LINDA HOWARD IS STILL ONE OF MY TOP AUTHORS AND I HAVE FOUND VERY FEW THAT I WOULDN'T READ OVER & OVER. THIS ONE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE SIZZLE THE OTHER ONES DID. I AM GLAD IT ENDED WITH FAMILY BECAUSE THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD.

    Maggie Winthrop doesn't believe in time travel any more than she believes in comic-book heroes or the tooth fairy. So when the naked man appears in her backyard, saying he's come from the future to prevent a global catastrophe, Maggie doesn't buy it--despite the spark of attraction between them. But when the handsome stranger accurately predicts things no one could possibly guess, Maggie starts to doubt everything she knows to be true.
