It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

The granting of wishes we haven’t even made. Taking what we think we want and replacing it with what will make us whole and happy. The grace of God is evident in this story. The hearts of characters willing to sacrifice, support, and forgive make this a wonderfully inspirational love story.

I am in love with this series! I know I am in love with a series when I do not take a break in the middle to read something completely different. As a more mature reader, I do not have any problem becoming a teenager in this world of characters and plot twists that go on and on and on. I cannot wait for the conclusion, but I never want it to end. #ForeverYoung #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

How many times can a person escape death? Shelby Nichols may be one lucky gal, but this time, her luck is about to run out. Working for a mob-boss has danger written all over it, but when an escaped convict with a lust for revenge goes after him, it’s up to Shelby and her mind-reading skills to keep Uncle Joey alive. Not only that, a federal agent from her past has an agenda with her name on it, and he won’t take no for an answer. What’s a mind-reading soccer mom to do? If you’re Shelby Nichols, you jump in with your mind wide open and hope for the best.

If this could be a television series, if you could creatively show a character “reading minds”, this series would replace Castle as my favorite. Yes, Shelby and I have similar TV taste. I absolutely love this series and all of its characters! This new installment in the life and times of Shelby Nichols brings so much action and adventure, but this just provides an exciting foil for the growth and development of the characters and their relationships with each other. I can’t wait for ITALY! Thank you Colleen Helme!

PS. A great shout out to Wendy Tremont King for bringing these characters to life with her wonderful performances! Love you too! #GetToWriting #CannotWait #TopOfMyFavs #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

Her life destroyed by a stalker, Uzuri Cheval starts anew in Tampa and joins the exclusive Shadowlands club. Unconvinced of her claims that she can overcome her fear of big men without help, Master Z gives her a time limit. And she is improving - until she hears the stalker is out of prison. Now her time limit is up, and the Masters will intervene, which is okay - as long as whoever helps her is short. Okay, sweet and gentle would be good, too. But two Doms? Dangerously experienced and dauntingly powerful cousins? No way.

Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn't everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt. His name is Hudson Fenn, and he's frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince - along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering.

He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn't keep him from coming out. My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn't know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target. My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I'm the only monster who can save her.

Sometimes the beauty of a shattered soul still capable of love shines as bright as the fragile innocence of a child capable of trusting the rescuer “dressed” as a monster. Unconditional love, acceptance, honor... I love this book.

This was it. Just a few more minutes and she would be home. At the moment though, the idea of coming home seemed more daunting than comforting. The oversized, glass-walled monstrosity her family had moved to in California had never felt much like home. Hell, she’d needed to use the intercom to call to the opposite side of the house. No, the quaint, ranch-style house she’d grown up in...that was home. Of course, home was situated in a place where everyone knew absolutely everything there is to know about...well...everyone.

Remember that I am rating a collection of 5 stories that were a little over an hour each. These were quick erotic romances with inexperienced heroines. I was not looking for deep character development. I was looking for quick little romances to listen to between listens that were extremely emotionally draining. These made for great little vacations for my mind and heart.

Never in a million years did I imagine that I’d be selected for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Now I’m being whisked away to a private island to spend a week alone with world-renowned painter Chandler Lexington. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and eccentric. I thought he was just going to paint me, but every seductive glance has a secret hidden intention behind it, and I’m beginning to think that this is about more than creating art.
