Colorado Cowboy By Sara Richardson #Review

*I received a ARC of this for my honest review*


Come home to Topaz Falls, Colorado where a down-on-her-luck bull rider falls for the cowboy she can't resist in this heart-warming western romance!

As a champion barrel racer, Charity Stone has learned to hold her own in the male-dominated rodeo world. There's no cowboy she can't handle...except for one. Officer Dev Jenkins has made it clear he doesn't look at her like one of the guys. He's caught her attention but Charity doesn't do relationships--especially not with a cowboy. When she suddenly finds herself in charge of her thirteen-year-old nephew, who's had a few brushes with the law, Charity has no choice but to ask for the deputy's help. 
Dev hasn't stopped fantasizing about Charity since she moved to Topaz Falls, but she's been hell bent on keeping her distance. When she comes to him for help with her nephew, he finally has the chance to make his move. Winning her over won't be easy, though--especially when her nephew's mistakes start to threaten his town. How can he do his job and still convince Charity he's the cowboy for her?

MY THOUGHTS

I do love a good cowboy romance book and this one is a good one.

The story is wonderfully written and it did keep me interested.  I love Dev and Charity together. 

I give this 4 out of 5.

MY THOUGHTS

This is book 4 in the Men of Inked: Southside series I admit I have never read any of the other books in this series nor have I read any of her other series.  The only book I have read was Misadventures With A Speed Demon but I have been wanting to read more of Chelle Bliss' books.

I read this book on the weekend and even though I hadn't read the previous books and if you haven't read the previous books it is fine because these books can be read as standalone.

This book is a quick, hot and sexy read that will make you want to read all of Chelle Bliss' books.

I give this 5 out of 5.

SWEET FATALITY by Desireé Adele #Review

*Thank you to WordSmith Publicity and Desireé Adele. I received an eARC of this for my honest review*



NA Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance
Stand Alone
Designed by: Melissa Panio-Petersen
Release Date: March 28, 2019
Blurb:
Everyone loves a hot, broody jock, right? The kind whose stare sets your body on fire and all common sense flies out the window?
Well, not this girl.
Sure, Keith Montgomery has the looks, but in his case, beauty is only skin deep. He’s egotistical, obnoxious and the most shallow person I’ve ever met.
And I’m his new roommate.
Turns out we were both desperate.
But that’s where our commonalities end. He’s indecisive where I’m sensible, chaotic where I’m organized. So why do I ache for those minutes alone with him?
I’m not the type of girl who likes to get burned, but suddenly the idea of playing with Fire is getting harder to resist.

Sweet Fatality is book 2 in the Sweet series and I have to say that I loved this book just as much as the first book.

This story is sweet and very sexy and it got me hooked from the very beginning. I loved every minute of this book.

If you are looking for a sexy New Adult Contemporary sports romance than look no further.  This book is amazing.

I am giving this 5 out of 5 .

Allerleirauh by Chantal Gadoury #Review

*I received a e-copy of this book for my honest review*


A beautiful princess must escape one treacherous vow…

And she must do so alone…without a prince to save her. 

Princess Aurelia is bound to the wicked king of Tranen by her mother’s single, dying wish: He must remarry a woman who possesses her same golden hair. 

But Aurelia has magic on her side. Disguised by a cloak made of one-thousand furs, she escapes into the night with only memories of her sordid past and her own will for freedom. 

But after finding safe haven in the beautiful kingdom of Saarland der Licht, will the secret of her identity be compromised when she captures the attention of the captivating Prince Klaus? 

Allerleirauh is a retelling of the classic Grimm fairy tale that takes hold from the first page until the end! 

MY THOUGHTS

I had a bit of a hard time reading this book at the beginning because it deals with rape and incest but once you get to where she escapes I found the story to start getting better and easier to read and I started enjoying the story.

I found this was a fast read.

I am giving this 3 1/2 stars. 

If you are interested in purchasing this book you can do so at amazon.ca, amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.



Nine While Nine by Stasia Morineaux #Review

*I received a e-copy of this for my honest review*



Isabeau Finne’s perfect world utterly unravels when she meets Death's right-hand man one fateful night, spiraling her life into a world of chaos and the impossible... 

Suddenly, she is no longer Isabeau and becomes part of the most secretive inner-workings of Death itself, as well as an otherworldly dominion of ancient magic.

Now beings—which we were taught as children were merely fictional creations of wildly whimsical minds—are edging their way into her world as well.

Buggans and Kobolds and Vargs…oh my!

She yearns for the simplicity of her old life—this one is full of dangers, unanswered questions, and cryptic dreams.

After one particularly anomalous dream in which she learns of the Nine While Nine Legacy, things become truly precarious.

Now, someone sees her as a risk…a threat…and wants to eliminate her.

Fortunately, she falls under the protection of Gideon—unless she leaves his territory—which is the one thing she wants the most…and wants the least.


MY THOUGHTS

I had read the description and I knew I just had to read this book because it sounds fantastic. Well, I am so happy I read this one because it is such a great story.

I found the story to be very well written and different from any other Paranormal books I have ever read .  I like the main characters too.

If you are looking for a good Paranormal/Fantasy book, I think you will enjoy this one. 

I give this 5 out of 5 . 

You can purchase this at amazon.ca, amazon.com and Barnes & Noble

RIBBONS OF SCARLET: A Novel of the French Revolution by Kate Quinn, Stephanie Dray, Laura Kamoie, Sophie Perinot, Heather Webb, and E. Knight #CoverReveal

Six bestselling and award-winning authors bring to life a breathtaking epic novel illuminating the hopes, desires, and destinies of princesses and peasants, harlots and wives, fanatics and philosophers—six unforgettable women whose paths cross during one of the most tumultuous and transformative events in history: the French Revolution.

RIBBONS OF SCARLET: A Novel of the French Revolution, releases October 1st, 2019! Check out the amazing cover below and pre-order your copy today!

 

About RIBBONS OF SCARLET: A Novel of the French Revolution (Coming October 1, 2019)

Ribbons of Scarlet is a timely story of the power of women to start a revolution—and change the world.

In late eighteenth-century France, women do not have a place in politics. But as the tide of revolution rises, women from gilded salons to the streets of Paris decide otherwise—upending a world order that has long oppressed them.

Blue-blooded Sophie de Grouchy believes in democracy, education, and equal rights for women, and marries the only man in Paris who agrees. Emboldened to fight the injustices of King Louis XVI, Sophie aims to prove that an educated populace can govern itself--but one of her students, fruit-seller Louise Audu, is hungrier for bread and vengeance than learning. When the Bastille falls and Louise leads a women’s march to Versailles, the monarchy is forced to bend, but not without a fight. The king’s pious sister Princess Elisabeth takes a stand to defend her brother, spirit her family to safety, and restore the old order, even at the risk of her head.

But when fanatics use the newspapers to twist the revolution’s ideals into a new tyranny, even the women who toppled the monarchy are threatened by the guillotine. Putting her faith in the pen, brilliant political wife Manon Roland tries to write a way out of France’s blood-soaked Reign of Terror while pike-bearing Pauline Leon and steely Charlotte Corday embrace violence as the only way to save the nation. With justice corrupted by revenge, all the women must make impossible choices to survive--unless unlikely heroine and courtesan’s daughter Emilie de Sainte-Amaranthe can sway the man who controls France’s fate: the fearsome Robespierre.
