There were so many good books this month for Blaze. I really couldn’t pick
you have books from my favorite authors, Joanne Rock, Kathleen O’Reilly, Jill Shalvis, and Tori Carrington. So I’ve
decided to host a book from an author whose work I have never read before.
THE PERSONAL TOUCH by
I read the blurb of this book and thought, this sounds like a great read. Then
I read the excerpt offered by eharlequin.com and was blown away.
When matchmaker Margot Roth is hired to find a date for the mother of a
millionaire, an erotic fling is the last thing on her mind. Well, maybe not
last thing. Clint Hilton is the sexiest man she's ever met, and she has to
admit naughty things go through her mind when he looks at her with his sultry
But now that Clint is there to turn her fantasies into reality, Margot isn't
sure if giving in to temptation is the best idea—even if he's determined to
share his bed with her…or something more.
NAUGHTY NIGHTS IN THE
MILLIONAIRE’S MANSION by ROBYN GRADY
This sounds like such a great read. I love animals and I love romances that
revolve around animals.
Dynamic and drop-dead gorgeous, Sydney millionaire Mitch Stuart will be
president of his family's empire in just two weeks—and he won't allow himself
any distractions…. Enter Vanessa Craig!
Vanessa is working hard to keep her business afloat, although she can't help
but care more about the pets in her store than pennies in the bank.
Mitch steps in to help her in the only way he knows—financially. But Vanessa's
bewitching body threatens his hard-and-fast coporate rule: never mix business
Silhouette Nocturne is really becoming one of my all-time favorite series of
books. I’ve always loved vampire stories, but I’m starting to really enjoy
other shape-shifters as well.
SENTINELS: LION HEART
by DORANNA DURGIN
Joe Ryan's lion heart is as rocky and impenetrable as the Arizona mountains he
protects. Although no one could ever prove that the muscular Sentinel agent
involved in his former partner's death, Ryan's dark reputation—and ferocious
cougar form—spells danger to the unwary.
Lyn Maines is a woman on a mission. The dark-eyed shape-shifter has come to
root out corruption, but she quickly discovers she's vulnerable to Ryan's
leonine power. As they hunt the rocky peaks, seeking proof of Joe's innocence—
or guilt—can she trust her instincts about the proud, tawny loner? Especially
when her judgement is overwhelmed by the wilder urgings of her heart.
ONE NIGHT WITH THE WEALTHY
RANCHER by BRENDA
Texas Cattleman's Club member Darius Foster is tired of women chasing after
millions. But his jaded heart is about to get a jump-start. The wealthy
never expected to see Summer Martindale in his part of Texas. Darius was still
trying to forget that incredible night they'd spent together…a night that
should have happened. Certain she had relocated just to get close to him—and
his money—the ex-lawman vowed to keep his distance. But when danger came
calling, Darius knew he was the only one who could protect Summer. And that
meant getting closer to her in every way!
