    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

    Donna says: "Brilliant"
    "Boy meets girl fairy tale love story that works"
    Overall

    I liked this love story because it didn't have the usual "hate each other" or contrived misunderstanding conflict that is prevalent in most romance novels. The couple seams perfect for each other from the beginning and after some witty and fun dialog, they fall in love and fulfill their desires. It is perfect romance that works. The author does a good job of making you feel the excitement of saying the words "I love you" for the first time even though the characters have no doubt they are coming. It just feels good and made the fairy tale real for me.

    TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the "Baghdad Babe," spent eighteen months in an Al-Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she's still wondering why.No mission in Javier Corbray's fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura's rescue did.

    What did you love best about Striking Distance?

    The romance is heartbreaking, sensuous and satisfying. All the I-team books are fantastic, but this one has the most emotional extremes of happy and sad, fear and fantasy, good and evil, passion and penance. I love Pamela Clare's novels because she knows how to craft her characters to be exceptional but sympathetic, the plots extreme but believable, and really tell the story. But even the greatest literature can be butchered by a bad narration and I have to compliment the author for choosing one of the best audio book performers in the business, Kaleo Griffith, to make her books even better in audio book form. Bravo!

    Story
    (353)

    In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her.

    A. Masters says: "narration takes away from the story"
    "All I wanted was more."
    Overall

    The story ended too soon. I wanted at least two more chapters and an epilogue to fulfill expectations of the plot.

    Story

    In Robyn Carr's Whispering Rock, wounded LAPD Sergeant Mike Valenzuela finds the help and healing he needs in Virgin River. Now he longs for the marital bliss his Marine Corps buddies enjoy. And he thinks he's found the right woman. But after she's brutally attacked, Mike must show her how to trust again.

    Julie says: "Special stories"
    "Loved the story. Loved the men."
    Overall

    I loved the ensemble cast and feeling of family and connections between characters. The main love story was well developed and worth the wait for the very hot love scene. I often get bored with characters that are too perfect, but the perfect men in this story were just too good to get bored with. I can't wait to hear more of this story in previous and later books.
