A Million Different Ways by P. Dangelico is the story of Vera Sava and Sebastian Horn. It is also debut author that I am so happy to have read her first book…and cannot wait for the next one. There is a cliffhanger that sets the story for the next book about Vera and Sebastian, but I enjoyed this book so much I didn’t really mind it. I wanted the story to keep going on about Vera and Sebastian…it was to good to end in one book. So don’t let that hold you back from reading this great book!.

I have read the previous reviews and thought it might not be true that this author had a debut book that hit a home run so quickly. It has happened before for me with other authors, but reading the previews it didn’t read to me that it would be a ‘WOW’ book… how wrong I was!! If you like a hurt (inside and out) alpha male hero with a strong on the run/in trouble women with a heart to big…then this book is for you.

Vera has been on the run for about six years after her father was in trouble for embezzlement and killed himself. Vera was also set up to a part of it by having money transferred into an account with her name on it. So she went on the run instead of facing the false charges. Her friend Emily who is involved with a Russian Mob has been helping her hide and move around.
Vera dream is to get into a residency to work as a Family Dr which she is trained in. While she wait to find that job she takes different jobs while on the run. One leads her to being a housekeeper for Sebastian.

When Sebastian and her meet she is quickly attracted to him but he has an attitude and is very hateful to her. Things don’t get any better the next few times they meet. Which makes Vera uncomfortable but at the same time she knows any feels she has for him can move forward not just because she is his housekeeper… she has made it a habit not to get attached to anyone or make friends.

But Sebastian has moved past fighting his attraction to Vera. Vera tries to continue to fight her attraction to him but, he wins her over and they start an affair. Vera tries to make it clear that she plans on leaving as soon as she finds a job to start being a Dr at a Family Practice. That this is just a temporary relationship.

Can Vera stick to her plan of leaving when she get her dream job? Will Sebastian find out she is on the run and why? Sebastian has a lot of trust issue and needs to be in control. Can Vera deal with this after being on her own for so long and running her own life?

I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Dying for Love by Angel Nicholas is the story of Grace Debry and Matthew Duncan. This book was actually a nice surprise with a great story line that covered mystery, drama, romance. This was also the second book by this author, I liked her writing and hope to see more books.
This story starts off with pretty sad for Grace and she is trying to get past everything and move forward but things are going that way. Matthew is attracted to Grace as soon as he meets her. But since Grace is working for him it created a issue for him but can he resist her for long? Will we find out what is going on with Grace?

I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
‘Heated Match’ by Lynne Silver is the first book in the “Coded for Love” series. This is the story of Loren Stanton and Adam Blacker.

Adam was and is part of a government program of genetically enhanced soldiers. The program had been a secret but now their cover has been blown. Adam is now the leader of a covert ops group that was set to protect a baby from being kidnapped at a party. There Adam met Loren who pretty much took his breath-away and he was quickly attracted to her. Adam was able to get her to dance with him but she suddenly left him mid-dance. A short time later things start to go bad as the baby is kidnapped. Adam admits that he was distracted by Loren but they agree she wasn’t part of the kidnapping. It seems her unknown to her brother named Chase, is part of the government program and he speaks up for her along with Adam agreeing that she wasn’t part of it.

Loren is a journalist and her she was assigned to the party to report on the food, entertainment etc. side of things. But Loren after meeting Adam is very attracted to him and this upsets her. Loren leaves before the kidnapping happens and the next day her boss is upset that she left and didn’t get the story. Loren talks her boss into letter her help work on the story which leads her to go to the government site where Adam, Chase and the other are. There she tries to take pictures and talk her way into the building to get a interview. Loren knows that is more to what is going on with Adam and this story.

Now Loren and Adam are face to face again. The attraction is just as strong if not stronger. Adam is being pressured to meet the request of fathering a child by his father/officials. But Adam doesn’t want that due to how much it had hurt his mother. Will they have a choice in how their relationship develops? Can they fight their feels?

****Free on Amazon for a Limited Time! Showing a 4.4 Star Rating!! The Thunder Lord: The de Shera Brotherhood Book One by Kathryn Le Veque***

www.amazon.com/The-Thunder-Lord-Brotherhood-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B00PUPKT10/ref=zg_bs_158571011_f_14

 

Welcome to Book One in the de Shera Brotherhood Trilogy.

1258 A.D. – As Henry III spends most of his time in France and focused on his French favorites, powerful English barons including Simon de Montfort begin to form an allegiance against him. Rising to power in this dark and uncertain time is the House of de Shera; headed by Gallus de Shera, Earl of Coventry and Lord Marshal of Worcestershire, Gallus is flanked by his brothers Maximus and Tiberius, forming an unbreakable circle of strength that cannot be broken. All know and fear the mighty de Shera brothers.

When Gallus de Shera is pressured to enter into a marital contract with the eldest daughter of Hugh Bigod, another powerful warlord, he balks at the suggestion but is resigned to the fact that he has little choice, as the mighty Bigod family would make strong family relations. But before the contract can take place, a fortuitous moment in time sees him rescue a Welsh daughter of royal blood. The Lady Jeniver Tacey ferch Gaerwen is the daughter of kings and Gallus is instantly entranced with the raven-haired lass. When Jeniver’s father is mortally wounded, he begs Gallus to marry his daughter. Unable to refused a dying man’s request, Gallus accepts. Although he knows he must face Hugh Bigod at some point over the fact that he is no longer an eligible bachelor, he has no remorse – all he can focus on is his new bride, and a powerful love story is born.

Join Gallus and Jeniver as they embark on a new life together, where the English barons would see their marriage torn apart even as they rebel against Henry III. It is an epic journey of politics, betrayal, hatred, and ultimately a timeless passion between Gallus and Jeniver in this exciting first book of a three-book trilogy.
