DIRTY FLIRTY ENEMY(REVIEW POST)

Published July 16, 2019 by bookbesties

 

He’s the arrogant Manhattan
realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in
negotiations.
I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall
from his office.

From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might
have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client
comes to me?

Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the
chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every
hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.

Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us,
the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against
each other.

Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.

Game on.

Just seeing that the author is Piper Rayne would be enough to one click and buy, but for everyone else I guess we will talk about the book a little.

Once again we see the second Mancini brother in this series and he is sex on a stick and charm that drips off the pages.

Carmelo Mancini is this hotshot sexy realtor broker and his enemy is Bella the FSBO(for sale by owner) broker who seems to be giving our boy Carm a hassle and she just moved her office right next to his……cue sexual tension and rivalry.  They both are put on with the same client to try and sells a condo on the floor they were given. With just a little competition,  sexual tension, and alpha male, what could happen?

 The banter between these two is exhilarating and sweet. Bella is not a pushover but is a great strong character. I can’t say enough how personable and relatable these characters are. They are very homey and warming. This is an excellent read. The last of the Mancini brothers has been quite mysterious so I cant wait to see what’s in store. Thanks for another great read!!

How To Forgive a Highlander(Review Post)

Published July 9, 2019 by bookbesties

William MacGregor will lie, spy, and happily die to protect his clan from their greatest enemy. But when he kidnaps the wrong woman, he triggers the very events he’d been working so hard to prevent. And puts everyone in danger.

Rose Thatcher will do anything to protect her lady and return them both safely to English soil. But the damn Highlander who snatched her off the docks has done nothing but get in her way. She’d love to ditch the bastard, but if they want to save their respective loved ones, they are going to have to stay together.

Somewhere along the grueling journey to Scotland, their constant bickering turns into something more. Something worth fighting for. But how can an English lady’s maid, who longs for the safe, comfortable life she had in London, find love with a Highlander who can’t wait to wipe England’s dust off his feet? If they can’t defeat the enemy they accidentally led home, they might not live long enough to find out.

Each book in the MacGregor Lairds series is STANDALONE:
* How to Lose a Highlander
* How to Ensnare a Highlander
* How to Blackmail a Highlander
* How to Forgive a Highlander

Out NOW

This is the first book I have read by this author and it is a 100% run read. From page one this book is full of adventure. From mistaken identity and kidnapping to a hostage turned spy and enemies turned to lovers this book surely kept my heart racing from start to finish. This book was fast paced, and I loved being swept along in the whirlwind of it! Most H.R. books are about highborn society characters (or at least one of the main characters is) but neither hero nor heroine in this love story is, and honestly, I feel like it gave the author so much freedom to build their adventure. This book was so exciting and the romantic ending was so perfect I really enjoyed this book.

Rose Thatcher was filled with worry for her mistress as she boarded a boat to run away to the Highlands of Scotland (somewhere she NEVER wanted to go), but her mistress was determined and had a plan. A plan that didn’t involve Rose being kidnapped, in a case of mistaken identity, that very morning, right there on the docks, by a member of the same clan her Lady was running away too. When her kidnapper discovers his error will he release her to carry out her mistress’s plans, or will it be too late for her to escape? Will she be able to forgive him or will they be enemies for the rest of their lives?

William MacGregor has worked very hard to protect his clan from Ramsey their bloodthirsty enemy, to the point where he risked being discovered as a spy in Ramsey’s ranks just to see his cousin safely aboard a boat that will take him home to the highlands. He wasn’t about to let some female, possibly a spy sent by Ramsey to ruin all his hard work. He just wanted to talk to her and make sure she wasn’t dangerous. He soon discovers that she is dangerous, not to his clan but to his heart.

I loved the adventure of this book so much!

Someone to Honor by Mary Balogh(Review Post)

Published July 2, 2019 by bookbesties

51uoMY6um3L._SY346_

Abigail Westcott’s dreams for her future were lost when her father died and she discovered her parents were not legally married. But now, six years later, she enjoys the independence a life without expectation provides a wealthy single woman. Indeed, she’s grown confident enough to scold the careless servant chopping wood outside without his shirt on in the proximity of ladies.

But the man is not a servant. He is Gilbert Bennington, the lieutenant colonel and superior officer who has escorted her wounded brother, Harry, home from the wars with Napoleon. Gil has come to help his friend and junior officer recover, and he doesn’t take lightly to being condescended to–secretly because of his own humble beginnings.

If at first Gil and Abigail seem to embody what the other most despises, each will soon discover how wrong first impressions can be. For behind the appearances of the once-grand lady and the once-humble man are two people who share an understanding of what true honor means, and how only with it can one find love.

OUT NOW!!!

I was so anxiously waiting to get my hands on this next book that I literally stopped reading everything else to start this book.  Mary Balough has delivered another beautiful leading lady who finds her perfect match in the most unlikely place.   I was sure the this story was going to be about Jessica or any of the other Westcotts but was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered it was Abby who finds love in this book.  I loved this story as much as I did the others and truly cannot wait for the next one.

A Destitute Duke By Patricia Knight(Review Post)

Published June 28, 2019 by bookbesties

51KT5UNX3YL._SY346_

Captain Duncan Worthington Everleigh had committed his life to king and country. When he returns to London, a startling revelation about the legitimacy of his brother the Duke of Chelsony alters his future. However, no new discovery could be more life-changing than what he grows to feel for Lady Florence Lloyd-Smith. Duncan finds in Florence a woman he can love with unchecked passion. To protect her, no sacrifice is too great, even if his actions could cost him her love.

Too headstrong, independent, and beautiful for her own good, the widowed Lady Lloyd-Smith isn’t the carefree lady of leisure she pretends to be. She has pulled herself from bitter poverty and through careful investment has amassed a substantial fortune. She has little time for men who treat all women as bubble-headed nodcocks or consider her tarnished because she “stinks of trade”. She has little need for men at all, until she meets Captain Everleigh. Florence finds in Duncan a man who promises love, honor, and protection—even if it’s from himself. Yet the violence of her love for him leaves her trembling, and Lady Lloyd-Smith isn’t a woman to give up easily.

Duncan finds in Florence a woman he can love with unchecked passion. Florence finds in Duncan a man who will love, honor, and protect her—even if it’s from himself.

This is book number 2 in the Heirs & Spares series, and it was just as good as book one!  This book has it all; war heroes, independent ladies, betrayal, theft, passion, and romance.  Lady Florence is everything I love in a leading lady, she is independent, business savvy, intelligent, incredibly fashionable, and an absolute socialite.  I loved getting to know her better in this book and seeing her find her happy ending.

Captain Duncan Worthington Everleigh is a decorated war spy who is returning to England to visit his favorite half-brother and report the findings of his latest mission to the war office.  He is happy with his life in the military and has no plans of settling down, that is until he meets Lady Florence Lloyd-Smith, a friend of his new sister in-law.

      Lady Florence Lloyd-Smith can have any number of gentlemen as suitors but she isn’t interested in being married again, especially now that she has her business investments and her own financial independence.  Will a chance meeting with her best friend’s brother in-law and his offer to financially back her business change her mind, or will it lead to heart break?

    This book was a thrilling read that pulled at my heart strings from start to finish.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
