After a devastating car crash stole both her family and her memory, Grace Stanton was left with no past and an uncertain future. Now Grace likes to keep things simple. No sleepovers, never date a guy more than a month, and never, ever fall in love. Which is exactly why Grace avoids Bad Habit's lead guitarist, Brody Scott, at all costs. The green-eyed, sexy-as-hell musician has "trouble" tattooed all over him, and Grace isn't taking any chances with her heart.

Chloe Carmichael's life feels pretty sweet - she's both maid of honor and florist for her best friend's A-list wedding, things are getting serious with her boyfriend, and her flower shop is about to get a spread in a national magazine. But it all quickly turns sour whenever the best man, Bad Habit drummer A.J. Edwards, shows his face...his handsome, unforgettable face. A.J. is everything Chloe doesn't want: tattooed, selfish, and all-around bad news. So why can't she stop thinking about him?

Scotland, 1812. He's ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he has inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.

The only permanent thing in my life is the ink I put on my clients. I drift from city to city, in and out of beds, from one tattoo shop to the next. Every time I start to put down roots, I rip them up. Until New Orleans. Until her. She's everything I'm not. Full of fire and life. An innocent where I'm a sinner. I want to consume her. Protect her. Keep her. But first I have to escape from beneath these shadows.

I love the way Ms. Mallory twines her story with the characters. I feel with each book I get to know each character better. She also teaches a bit of my Ancestors history along with her tales. I love the Narrative. Derek easily flows from characters voices and personalities. I love Alex for he is a Charmer. One with a good heart. Besides I love how this book prepares me for yet another adventure with the four Scott's I have come to know through fantasy.

I loved this tale. Love meant to be. A Sage old woman, not understood but loved enough for the young to respect and take heed. I'll fated birth in an untimely place in time still cannot stop a heart from loving even when everything shouts turn away. I love that love wins out in the end.

To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She's worked her entire young life to make it here. Groomed to one day take over his father's law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison's only option. Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners. Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.

Elizabeth captured my heart. I struggled with Christian. Could he commit? Could she NOT love him? The perfect opposites. Just the read I needed. Andi was perfect. It will be a book I will choose to cherish when I think love cannot win in the end.
