Sneak Preview : When Stars Die




Amelia Gareth's brother is a witch and the only way to save her family from the taint in his blood is to become a professed nun at Cathedral Reims in the snowy city of Malva. However, in order to become professed, she must endure trials that all nuns must face.
           
Surviving these trials is not easy, especially for Amelia, who is being stalked by shadowy beings only she can see. They're searching for people they can physically touch, because only those they can touch can see them. Amelia soon learns why she is being stalked when she accidentally harms her best friend with fire during the third trial. Fire is a witch's signature. The shadows are after witches.
           
Now Amelia must decide what to do: should she continue on her path to profession knowing there is no redemption, or should she give up on her dream and turn away from Cathedral Reims in order to stop the shadows who plan to destroy everything she loves?

Sneak Preview : The Rent - A - Groom




Even though Gina cancels her wedding mere days before the ceremony, she’s determined to keep her reservation for a famous honeymoon suite in Dallas. 

Enter Race, a Texas cowboy who cleans up rather well, and who declares himself her substitute groom for the week.

Thinking her best friend hired Race, Gina goes along with the fun – at first. But is Race really who he seems? Why is Gina’s ex-fiance staying at the same hotel? And just how far is Gina prepared to go with Race and that model-worthy face of his on their "honeymoon"?

My Review : Catering to the Italian Playboy



It was humiliating! How could caterer Sophie Westbrook ever face the sexy Italian hotel tycoon again after the way she’d practically thrown herself at him six years earlier…and ended up in his bed? Yet here she was back in his hotel wearing only a G-string and a smile.

Maximus Rinaldi is not pleased to find a half-naked exotic dancer in the middle of his business meeting…until he discovers she’s the mystery woman he shared one unbelievable night with years ago. Max is determined to win her back into his bed, but Sophie has a secret that might just turn the sexy Italian playboy’s life upside down!


My Review :

Characters - Sophie Westbrook and Max Rinaldi
Genre - Contemporary Romance
Author - Tamelia Tumlin
Rating - 3 Books
Source - Purchased

I like this book both Sophie and Max had a dark past that they really want to forget. I like Max character because he was determined to achieve his ambition. He don't believe in marriage and he was not ready to have kids but when he knew that he is the father of Sophie's baby,he wants to take care of his own child.

I gave 3 books because you will learn a  lot from the story, value of family and forgiveness as well.

My Review : Niko's Stolen Bride




Faced with the fiasco of her cancelled wedding, Kara wants to hide from the world while her heart heals. A day trip aboard the yacht leased for the honeymoon cruise sounds like the perfect escape. If only the captain hadn’t turned out to be the man she’d practically begged to kiss her after her failed bachelorette party. A rebound relationship with the handsome Greek should be the furthest thing from her mind, shouldn’t it?

Niko Maragos has spent more time in meetings than on the decks of his family’s ships in recent years, but after he dances with Kara, he’s eager to captain the yacht to Key West. To ensure that she can’t return to her ex-fiancĂ©, he steals her away. His plan to get Kara in his bed seems fail-proof, until pirates attack…

My Review :

Characters - Kara, Niko Maragos

Author - Lindy Corbin

Genre - Romance 

Rating - 4 Books

Source - Purchased


It's a well written story, Kara is very strong and reserved. She like Niko but she don't want him to be the rebound. She is still recovering from her cancelled wedding.

Niko is very lovable and witty as well. I love how he treat Kara, he loves her too but he is afraid because of his past experience with his former wife.

Sneak Preview : Death of the Mad Hatter



The Jack prophesied: If the king loses his head, then the Queen with a Bleeding Heart would rule the Red Court until Time ceased to move forward. When a second carried on for infinity, every creature in Wonderland would tip their Hat to the misfit girl with a Boy’s name (or was it a boy with a Girl’s name?) who’d end the Reign of Terror. However, it all hinged on the One-Eyed Hare being able to convince an uninspirable Heir that the impossible was indeed possible—like stopping time—and that Love was worth a Beheading.
Heads would Roll…
Hearts would Break…
In the end, would it matter who Reigned?

Sneak Preview : A New World




Eleanor Thatcher refuses to be charmed by the twinkling eyes and lilting brogue of the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her restaurant. She’s far too practical to fall for a fantasy spinner like Cahill McCrea. Yes, his commanding presence weaves a tantalizing, arousing spell, but bitter reality has taught Eleanor that dreamers drift on, leaving only heartache.
Cahill longs to settle down in America. In headstrong Eleanor, he finds the woman to share that future with. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time in this precious new world is running out…
