Emerson Knight is introverted and eccentric and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he's also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he'd probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with megabank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.

I didn’t think that I was going to like this book. But it was a fun and engaging. Plenty of well developed characters emerge from the pages. Part adventure, part mystery, an a teeny part Romance. You are led on a “quest” that traverses the country. Laughs and a bit scary here and there. Keeps your interest!

After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him. Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton. But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong. With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything.

This book continues the story in the Players. It really should be just one book. I highly recommend reading these books in order. I really enjoyed this book with its many twists and turns. I do wish that writers would understand that children of alcoholics, should be very careful about their use of alcoholics. However, it has a lot of meat in it and some funny stuff too. The plot is interest and the racy scenes written well. I hope someday their will be third book that deals with some unfinished issues.

I was born into British aristocracy, but I've made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom. Back in Britain, my family is fighting over who's the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it's me - if I'm married. It's not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman. Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I've never wanted - so I need a wife. To take my mind off business I need a night that's all pleasure.

Ok so it’s a bit predictable, but funny and fresh! A number of surprises and fun sexy encounters. Some lol places. I love the way the writer developed the characters. It would be interesting to read this from Darcy’s viewpoint and find out what happens to her. Stand out scene is flip chart! You will know it when you hear it!

Fan favorite Sharyn McCrumb teams with professional race car driver Adam Edwards for this high-speed tale of horsepower and high jinks. When hotshot stock car driver Camber Berkley crashes his ride on a winding mountain road, the wreckage interrupts the funeral of a wealthy racing fan. The folks of Judas Grove, Tennessee, give Camber a choice. He can either spend three months in the slammer, or he can train the local ministers as they prepare for a lucrative two-million-dollar race.

Ok, I generally enjoy this author, but for me this story was too filled with OK drug use, terminally ill person, adultery, and very strong dependence on using alcohol to get through the many problems. The insight to restaurants management was interesting, good character development, some good funny scenes. I did finish it but it really was not my cup of tea.

Once happily married, Jenna Jones is about to turn 40, and this year for her birthday - lucky her - she’s getting a divorce. She’s barely able to support herself and her teenage daughter. Her aging aunt Edie is finding it difficult to keep up her business running The Driftwood Inn, so she invites Jenna to come live with her and run the place. It looks like Jenna’s financial problems are solved! Or not. The town is a little more run-down than Jenna remembers, but that’s nothing compared to the ramshackle state of The Driftwood Inn.

It is easy to visualize the inn, beach, town and even the people. The reason I gave it two."Fours" instead of all "fives" is the ending. It seems as if the author ran out of steam. Ends fairly abruptly. But the character development s good and I enjoyed the way the author slowly revealed traits and changes in response to the story line. Recipes at the end are a nice touch! Someone needs to check the oatmeal cookie recipe since the oil is never used the way it is read now. Looking forward to reading the next book and following the lives of these interesting people.

The town of Moonlight Harbor needs to convince tourists that the beach is still the place to be - even when the sunshine goes south for the winter. Jenna Jones, new proprietor of The Driftwood Inn, has the perfect idea: a holiday festival called Seaside with Santa. Jenna is happy to throw herself into planning the event. Jenna is busy, but happy. Even with her troublesome ex in the picture, life feels as close to perfect as she's ever known. Until the weather turns her festival into a farce....
