The Rogue Warrior by Cindy Roland Anderson

His job was to protect her, not fall in love with her.

When Logan Steele is hired to protect an archery champion who is being stalked, the former SEAL automatically assumes his client is a man. Then he meets Weslee Campbell, a beautiful woman with the prettiest light blue eyes he’s ever looked into, and he knows his life is about to change forever. That is, if his fear doesn’t get the best of him. For a man who has faced enemy insurgents, rescued innocent people in the line of fire, and piloted a helicopter without experience to save his SEAL team, he shouldn’t be afraid of anything…yet meeting a pretty girl with a heart of gold has him questioning if he’s brave enough to fall in love.

As they slowly made their way toward the entrance, Weslee regretted her earlier behavior. She’d acted like a spoiled brat when all he was trying to do was keep her out of harm’s way. Her mother had raised her to be a lady, and she needed to make an apology.

She tipped her face up to look at him and realized now was not the time to apologize. Focused and stern looking, Logan honed in on the crowd around them. With his attention riveted on their surroundings, it gave her a moment to really study him. His appearance was a little deceiving. The clean-cut look gave him a hot-boy-next-door kind of vibe. Dressed in the expensive tux, he looked more like a sexy British spy than a soldier. It was his piercing blue eyes that gave him an edge, making him look cool, calm, and dangerous.

As if he knew she was checking him out, his eyes flashed to hers. Glimmering like chips of ice, they held very little warmth and were deadly serious. Still, despite his cool assessment, she felt that magnetic pull toward him. Instead of shrinking away, no doubt what he intended her to do, she held his gaze and gave him a soft smile.

Then she saw it. A fiery attraction flickered behind his eyes just before he shuttered it and looked away. That brief second of intense heat wrapped around her like a warm blanket right out of the dryer. What if Inez was right? What if meeting Logan was her destiny?

 

On sale for just 99 cents on October 4th & 5th

Logan and Weslee have such a fun and rewarding love story! I loved the chemistry between them, the suspense leading toward the ending, and the comedy spread throughout the book as well. Such a fun, romantic read, and the perfect addition to the Navy SEAL Romance Series 2.0. ~ Kimberly

 

 

Author Cindy Roland Anderson

She is a registered nurse and has worked in the NICU as well as the newborn nursery. She loves to read, almost as much as she loves writing. And she loves chocolate, probably a little too much.

My review

Children’s books are some of my very favorite books! I love the way they teach things to kids in an easy to understand way. And who doesn’t love the pictures?

This one is such a great little book. I love the way the author has picked people from history who really did change the way people in their time lived, as well as our time. Each of these inventors did so many great things. They are all worth not only our kids knowing about them, but us as adults as well. And the author mentions a little about them as children, making them easy for kids to relate to.

The pictures in this one are so cute. I love the way the characters are drawn. They are just fun!

The Unwanted Suitor

1-The Unwanted Suitor

When Cornelia Greystock received a proposal from Sir James Hawkston, she couldn’t bear it. It had been inspired, she knew, from pity and remorse—not love. Unable to face him afterward, she leaped at an offer of employment from the Countess, Lady Du’Breven. Serving as her companion, Cornelia struggles to adjust to the change in her social status, but the hard work distracts her from her broken heart. That is, until the Countess decides to hold a summer house party at her family estate and invites Sir James.

Sir James has never recovered from his disappointment when Miss Greystock refused his proposal and then fled, according to her family, to live with an unheard-of aunt in Ireland. When he grudgingly accepts an invitation to Lady Du’Breven’s house party, however, he is astounded to find Miss Greystock there. One thing is certain—this time he’ll court her the way he always should have. He is almost certain she returns his feelings, but he must tread carefully. If she refuses his proposal a second time, it would not be gentlemanly to ask a third. As time grows short and she continues to hold him at arms-length, will he find a way to at last win her hand?

When Lord Anthony disturbs her well-laid plans, Isabel realizes her determination to protect her family may cost her future happiness.

With hearts at odds and defenses drawn, will Isabel and Anthony be able to put aside their differences and find love at last?

Mistaken Identity

3-Mistaken Identity

Conrad Pinkerton, the Marquess of Kendal, despises society; the scheming, the guises, and the games they play. And yet, for his twin brother, he agrees to a temporary guise of his own, pretending to be his brother for a house party. Playing the fop should be easy, as long as he keeps everyone at a distance. But when he meets Jessica Standish, he wishes she didn’t think he was someone else.

Jessica Standish has never been considered worthy by the ton and now that she and her mother are penniless, the chances of a good match seem out of reach. Even the matchmaking schemes of the Countess Du’Breven seem doomed to failure. This house party will change nothing, though it’s hard not to hope when she sees Lord Ian again. The connection between them grows, though he seems so different from the man she remembers.

With his family name and fortune on the line, Conrad knows he should leave with his secret intact. After all, how can she truly love him if she thinks he’s someone else?

The Stable Master’s Daughter

4-The Stablemaster's Daughter

Marjorie’s days as the barefoot daughter of the stable master are long past—she’s an educated and accomplished artist. But at the house party of the summer she is out of her social depth, especially when reunited with Reginald, a man she has secretly loved for years. Just when he begins to show real interest in her, his older brother Miles tries to separate them and sparks fly. Miles is maddening and intriguing, and stirs a longing for a radiant future, but are his intentions sincere? An alliance is forbidden and a chance for love may cost Marjorie’s dignity and her father’s employment.

Lord Miles Beauchamp is the heir to an earldom and unyielding in his principles. He doesn’t have time for trivial social gatherings, except when reforming his brother. Miles anticipates Reginald’s wandering eye, but is caught off-guard when he pursues a wholesome woman, one Miles is honor-bound to protect. It will take all Miles’ effort to keep his brother in line, Marjorie from harm, and himself from falling in love. In a society keeping them a world apart, can Miles and Marjorie find a future together?

Tabitha’s Folly

5-Tabitha's Folly

Tabitha’s Folly is one of Five books all set at the same Regency House Party Series. While each is a standalone story, watch our characters mingle together with others from the books in the series. The stories can be read in any order.

Lady Tabitha Easton recklessly dodges four over-protective brothers while trying to gain attention from the man who holds her heart. She has many choices of suitors, and with Henry as disinterested as ever, she turns to what is wholly forbidden, an irresistibly handsome footman. While their friendship grows, her trust in him increases while her hurt and doubt in her childhood love and friend pushes her away from all she’s ever known as family.

When Lord Henry Courtenay discovers a new attraction to his childhood friend, his role as one of her chaperones at the house party becomes near impossible. Irrationally defensive about any potential suitors and seeking time alone with the enticing Tabby, maintaining friendship with her brothers proves more difficult than he ever imagined. His task becomes all the more difficult when she refuses to understand his growing attraction and often finds herself in almost compromising situations.

When Tabitha’s choices might lead her to danger, and doubt and distrust are high, Henry must prove himself or lose her forever.

About Love for Keeps

love for keepsCity home inspector Kendall Nomellini follows rules to a fault. As a single mom of a high school soccer player, she has no choice but to plan her time to the minute—fitting her work, education, and future goals into a tidy, no-surprises schedule. What’s not in her plan? Falling for the worst soccer referee in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Why would she when she knows from experience that the perfect man doesn’t exist? 

Between owning a successful business and running a fulfilling charity, former MLS goalkeeper Zeke Hartford’s life is working out just fine. Except time and again, he crosses paths with the spitfire club coach who has no problem telling him exactly where he falls short. And while the beautiful home inspector could easily throw a wrench into his professional life, he’s intrigued enough to win her over. 

Can Zeke change her scowls to smiles and her criticism to compliments? It’s a challenge he’s willing to take—on the pitch and off—but is Kendall willing to play his game?

My review

This is the first of the new Sports Moms Romance series that I’ve read. And I’m excited to get to read more and more of the books in this series!

I loved reading this book! The characters were some of my favorites. Maria Hoagland does such an amazing job with her characters. They seem real, like you could find them in the soccer park closest to you. I loved the plot of this one as well. There’s tons of fun romance that you won’t want to miss!

Let’s start with Kendall. She’s a single soccer mom who sometimes has to help coach her sons team. I loved the way she was such a spitfire. She’s not going to let anyone walk all over her. And that does a couple of things for her. Sometimes it gets her into trouble. But sometimes things work out for her benefit. Things like Zeke noticing her.

Zeke’s character is probably one of my very favorite hero I’ve read lately. I loved the way he was humble enough to not take Kendall’s criticisms at the beginning personally.  He’s a good guy, always trying to give back, not at all like Kendall’s ex-husband. I loved the way he was always willing to work with Kendall’s son, Drew and his friends with their soccer game. There are so many fun things that Zeke does for Kendall. I loved the way he was always looking out for her. 

This book is so great! If you love clean contemporary romance books, this will be one you will love!

Damen Laconi is of noble blood from both of his parents. Unfortunately neither will claim him. Legitimacy is hard won as a footman in England. He values his position as the handsomest footman on the countess’ estate but hungers for more, a title of his own.

Giorgia comes from Italy, sent by Damen’s mother, to woo him and bring him home. Can she accomplish such a thing before her own secrets are revealed, and before he carries out his own reckless plans?

Damen’s Secret is a Regency House Party Novella. Look for all the titles in this series.

About Proximity

proximityTia Parker always seems to fall for the wrong guy. But when she meets Evan Spence at a friend’s wedding, it seems like she’s finally found Mr. Right. Their spark is undeniable, but reality may extinguish any hope for a future: they are separated by thousands of miles. As the couple struggles with the pitfalls of pursuing romance long-distance, Tia is taken off guard by a new arrival in town. Colby Farren is handsome and charming and has made it clear he’s interested in Tia. Yet despite his obvious infatuation, Tia can’t seem to get Evan out of her mind. Caught between the attention of two very different men, her complicated love life is soon eclipsed by much more sobering concerns. A break-in at her apartment is just the first in a series of bizarre events, each bringing her one step closer to a dangerous liaison. And knowing who to trust could be a matter of life and death.

My review

It’s always a great day when there’s a new book by Traci Hunter Abramson to read! I love her books so much. She’s great with characters, romance and suspense. Everything you could ever want in a book is packed in!

Proximity starts off with Colby. He’s the newest police officer in the tiny town of Cottonwood, Arizona. He’s from Alaska, where life didn’t quite work out. I couldn’t put my finger on why, but I never really liked his character. Maybe it was his cockiness…but I really don’t know.

I loved Tia in this one! She is really her own person. She’s always late, she’s great at playing baseball with the guys and everyone who knows her likes her. There were so many little things about her that made her her own person. I loved that! It was really fun how she and Evan meet and immediately like each other. 

Evan is just in Arizona for the wedding of his friend, Drew to Tia’s friend Julie. His life seems so full of adventure. Working in Paris just seems so romantic. I loved the way he always watched out for Tia, no matter what the consequences. And the way that he’s so in-tuned to her to know when something is terribly wrong. 

And it was so much fun to see much loved characters Kendra and Charlie from Obsession. It’s always fun to “see” characters that you’ve loved before and find out what’s been happening to them. 

The plot of this one is amazing! There were many parts that were romantic and amazing. But the very next part would be so suspenseful that the reader doesn’t want to put down the book until they figure out what’s going to happen next. 

If you love romance or suspense, make sure to read Traci Hunter Abramson’s books. They’re some of my very favorites!

little women

Do you have books or movies that you read or watched as a kid that still affect you as an adult? For me Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is one of those. I loved reading the book and I loved watching the movie as well. I still consider both of them to be  favorites.

So when I saw that there was a new Little Women movie coming out, I was really excited! And I was even more excited to get to go to the movie premiere the other night before the movie actually came to theaters. My oldest daughter, also a Little Women fan, went with me.

little women

I loved the new movie. The way they changed up the plot was clever, I loved it! This version has the girls as adults, focusing mainly on Jo. But she flashes back to when they were kids and you get to see the whole plot. And this version is set in modern times, so the girls deal with things that kids now would be dealing with. I loved that as well! This movie made me laugh and it made me cry. Make sure to take some tissues for yourself!

It was really fun to see characters in this one that I recognized from other movies. There were a couple from the High School Musical series as well as some of my other favorite movies.

little women

Another thing that’s really awesome about this new movie, is that the 150th anniversary of the book’s release is coming up in just a couple of days on September 30th. I love that a whole new generation of girls can come to love these characters and this story through this movie. That’s fantastic!

Little Women opens in theaters today! Make sure to take the time to go see it. 

About Little Women

From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy — are always committed to supporting one another. When Jo moves to New York to pen a novel, her editor challenges her to write about something much more interesting — her family. When tragedy brings the siblings back home, sticking together takes on a whole new meaning as Jo tries to comfort Beth when she gets sick.

About Seeking Mr Dependable

seeking mr dependableA broken-hearted Romeo. A wrongly-accused woman. Can he keep her safe if she puts her life in his hands? 

Brooke Isaacson’s ex-fiancé pulls a gun on her and she has no choice but to run. When she runs straight to Wyoming and into the arms of Ryker Redland, she’s not sure if she’s found her Mr. Dependable or found the biggest heartbreak of her life. 

A deserted cabin and a territorial grizzly tracking them will either bring them together or be their death sentence.

My review

Cami Checketts is one of my very favorite authors! I borrowed this one on my Kindle Unlimited membership as soon as I saw that it was out. I’m always glad to find authors like her. I know I can pick up any of her books and I’m going to get great characters, a fun story that keeps me interested and it’s going to be clean.

This one is no different. I loved the characters! Let’s start with Brooke. She’s a young woman engaged to be married to a politician. But, when she decides he’s not the one for her, he pulls a gun on her and she has to get out fast. She ends up in Wyoming, at the home of one of her best friends, Harley Redmond, from Seeking Mr Debonair (make sure to read that one first!). Harley doesn’t live there any more, but Harley’s brother Ryker does. And he’s willing to protect Brooke. 

I loved Brooke’s character, she’s a strong young woman. She got out of a nasty relationship as soon as she could. She faces her very worst fears in this book and comes out on top. I really loved that she shows her vulnerability, as well as her strength during the story.

Ryker…he’s great as well! I loved that he was willing to do whatever it took to protect Brooke from any thing that came her way. Even herself at one point. He’s a great kind of cowboy, the best.

The plot of this one is awesome! There was plenty of danger and situations for the characters to get themselves out of, as well as plenty of romantic scenes. 

I loved this book! Other reviewers are complaining about there not being a lot about Jane Austen in this book. Brooke explains that best later in the plot, she just wasn’t as into Jane Austen as some of the other girls may have been. This book is a perfect romance that I didn’t want to put down!

“Who who is?” Oakley refused to believe her mom knew the seventeen/forty-year-old currently in her master bathroom shower. “That guy? He’s probably a drug addict, Mom. Believe me, I see a lot more of them at high school than you see in kindergarten. They’re actually pretty easy to spot: lack of self-care, bad personal hygiene, general disorientation, smell of smoke.”

“Sweetheart.” Mom looked more serious than she had in days, and she grabbed both of Oakley’s hands again for emphasis. “That guy who is now showering in our house is Hudson Oaks.”

The housing development guy from the boy band two decades ago?

“Mom.” Oakley wondered how many times she was going to have to call her mom out today for making wildly ridiculous statements. It was climbing into the dozens category now. “I think you and I both know that’s impossible.”

“He sounds like him, walks like him, says his name is Hudson Oaks. All the reasons. Trust me, I’m probably the greatest living expert on Hudson Oaks besides the man himself.”

That guy in her shower couldn’t be more than seventeen, and therefore not, legally, a man. Her mom should stay right away from that jailbait. Weren’t school teachers specifically trained on stuff like this? Apparently Mom had shelved all that based on seeing a … what?

Oakley’s world shifted on sands she hadn’t even known she’d been standing on. This new version of her life contained a mom who might just run off with a minor.

“Did you look at him, Mom? He’s, like, a seventeen-year-old kid. This whole incident happened over two decades ago. Don’t tell me you can explain that.”

“Of course I can.”

Of course she could. Oakley swallowed all the acid-tinged words and asked, “How?”

“Obvious. Time travel.”

A tiny explosion detonated in Oakley’s brain, but before she could react, a soft knock came at Oakley’s door. Mom hadn’t heard it, too enthralled in her moment of brilliant discovery. But Oakley had.

She looked over.

There in the doorframe, lit from the hall light behind, stood a dripping wet, formerly dirty boy, clad in just a towel at his waist. His hair was combed, and he had a definite young Tom Cruise quality about him—dark hair, charming smile, and those shoulders. Great Gatsby, those shoulders! Oakley caught her breath and had to swallow hard. The way he held his mouth, like he expected every woman to want to kiss it, made a little muscle tremble at the back of Oakley’s stomach.

She immediately tightened the muscle to put a halt to that nonsense.

 

 

Loved it! Fun and witty and had enough twists to keep me guessing. The hero was totally swoony and I really identified with the heroine. It had a perfect ending! ~Donna H

 

Time for a blast from the past! I had a lot of fun reading this book. I loved all the references to 90s music and culture. I had some pretty good laughs every time I came across a reference from that time. ~Julie C

 

Fun, fun read! Between a time-traveling rock star who looks like Tom Cruise, finding out about her mother’s teenaged craziness, learning to give her stepfather the credit he deserves, and coming to terms with her own insecurities and talent, Oakley has a lot on her plate! Let the fun and games begin! ~Traci A

 

This brought back a lot of memories as I was a teen in the 80’s. I loved this story. Sweet read & definitely good for teens & pre-teens or adults looking for a clean, fun story with a little romance, a little mystery & feel good ending! ~Rose D
