    Paige Hart is blessed and cursed with a large, loving and...colorful Southern family. As the only lawyer in the clan, she can't say no when her cousin needs her help in a messy, no-holds-barred divorce. Tax attorney Paige squares off with Ross "the Snake" Bennet t- one of the slickest divorce lawyers in the county. The case is going as well as an acrimonious, zinger-filled, wrangle of epic proportions can go until exposure to an infectious bug with an unusual side effect lands both lawyers in quarantine together.

    Story

    This story, which I thought was going to at least be somewhat funny is really, really just bad. It's not the least bit believable. I can't make myself finish it - ugh! Note to the author - try using some words besides "babe" and "baby"... good grief - enough already with those two words!

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Amidst torrid gossip and whispered suspicions, Reid Sayers has returned to his small hometown in rural Louisiana - and to the stormy passions of Camilla Greenley. Pulsating with the intense desires of a willful man and woman, Jennifer Blake's lush novel is a breathlessly compelling tale of suspense and unbridled sensuality that is absolutely! Camilla's cunning, soon-to-be ex-husband has discovered that she may be the sole heir to the local mill - worth millions if its operating owner, Reid Sayers, sells out to an eager conglomerate. But there is danger in the air....

    Story

    This book was NOT what I would consider good. If the author wanted to write soft porn, she did a good job of it. I wish she'd have put as much effort into the plot & the scenes where they weren't having sex as she did in those where they were. I've never heard quite so much "description" and so many words used in 99% of the books I've read/listened to, and trust me, I've read A LOT! Unless you're looking for mindless nothing to fill up your time, I'd suggest you skip this one. I wish I had….. what a waste of time & money!

    I really enjoyed this story. The narrator was fantastic and the story was great. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen but at the same time, I hated for it to end! I will be checking out the rest of Kate Morton's books - hope they're all as good as this one!!

    Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason - when her hero abducts her! The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

    Aside from dragging on & on, it was totally unbelievable. I like Stephanie Laurens, but not this time.... Won't buy another "Cynster" novel - ever!!

    Story

    I like books that have something to do with the south, but this was the most insulting I've ever "read". I think DS needs to visit SC before she *tries* to write about it - "bless her heart" (and that's meant with the DS meaning, not the true southern meaning!). I'm insulted and disgusted at the same time!

    This was a pitiful attempt at writing imho. If you didn't hear it the first time, you would have heard it after it was repeat for the 10th time, or the 15th....

    Please take my suggestion and do not waste your money on this book. It's BORING, totally inaccurate and very poorly written. I don't see how this book ever made it through the editors to the publisher. I've read many "free" books from indie authors that topped this by far! Danielle Steel needs to do a lot more research before trying to write about the south - a place where she apparently knows nothing - "bless her heart".

    The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after. Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.... Until the real earl appears.
