Review -One Last Letter By Pema Donyo

Amazon Buy Link: One Last Letter

Goodreads Summary:
A romantic hardened by reality…
Evelyn Lancaster turned her back on her love for ranch hand Jesse Greenwood when she was sixteen to pursue a career and marry into wealth that could save her father’s struggling ranch. Now twenty-three, she works hard to keep the property afloat, but no suitor has stirred her heart the way Jesse did. After her father falls ill, she needs all the help she can get to keep the ranch running.

A cowboy returning to what he left behind…
After making his fortune, a newly wealthy Jesse has returned home to see his younger sister married. Still smarting from Evelyn’s rejection, he finds the tables have turned, and now only his investment could save the ranch that he vowed to never step foot on again.

When he agrees to help her salvage her family legacy, they must overcome their pride and painful past to work together. As long-held emotions rekindle, Jesse pretends indifference, only to admit his true feelings in an unsigned letter left on Evelyn’s porch.

Evelyn finds the missive and writes back, beginning a furtive correspondence. She dares to hope her mystery admirer is Jesse, but then another man comes forward to claim the letters as his own. Will one last letter give them the courage to say yes to love on the wild Texas plains?

Review: 5 Romanticals

This book appealed to me right away after reading the description I knew I had to read it. I love the idea of farms and ranches and when there’s romance involved it makes it all the better. Western romances are one of my favorites.

Jesse a cowboy. He and his sister were abandoned by their mom. All Jesse wants is to live a good comfortable life with the woman he loves but he feels like it can’t be due to the fact that he is just a cowboy who does not come from a good background. The woman he loves is in a higher class.
Can he make something more of himself? Will the difference in backgrounds hold him back?

Evelyn a beautiful educated young woman. After her father fell ill she had to stand up and take responsibility and run the ranch. Her father wants her to marry but none of them came close to the love of her life.
Will she be able to keep the ranch successful? and will she be able to be with the man she loves?

You will have to read the book to find out 🙂 This book is about young love becoming true love.

This was a light-hearted love story with passion. The ending was sweet. I am looking forward to the next book Pema writes.

This book makes me think of all the relationships that weren’t possible because of different backgrounds. Back then it was a no no. I think about all the women and men that were in love but couldn’t do anything about it. Pema did a great job with this sweet love story. It was very well written and I really enjoyed the love letters.

A Measured Risk@ 800-72 dpi low res

By Natasha Blackthorne

Book one in the Regency Risks Series

He is her most dangerous temptation, the only man she has ever trusted and now he is demanding her submission. Dare she take the risk?

Emotionally scarred in the horrific accident that took her husband’s life, Lady Cranfield is imprisoned by her lingering terror of horses and carriages. She longs to be closer to the fascinating Earl of Ruel, as she senses intuitively that he might be able to teach her how to overcome the terrors that hold her in bondage.

And now she’s willing to risk almost anything—her reputation, even her virtue—to find out.

But what Lord Ruel proposes startles her.
When the shy, studious and socially awkward young widow approaches him, Lord Ruel instantly senses she will be the sweetest, most submissive experience of his life—but first he must gain her complete trust. Lord Ruel makes Lady Cranfield a non-negotiable offer: His help in return for her submission and obedience.
But Lady Cranfield grew up neglected by her ducal parents, raised by servants and then later ignored by her handsome, charming husband. She’s learnt to protect her heart at all costs and she trusts no one but herself.
How can the jaded Earl of Ruel break through Lady Cranfield’s self-defences and show her how to love when he himself has spent his life avoiding that tender trap?

Excerpt from A Measured Risk
©Copyright Natasha Blackthorne 2012, 2013
For Adults 18+ Only

She backed all the way into the bookcase.
“Why did you run away?” His deep voice settled in her belly, rich and warm, like crème brûlée on a cold winter’s night.
“Because I wanted you to follow.” She tried to sound sophisticated and seductive, but her voice choked off on the last word.
Ruel placed his hand on the shelf above her head and blocked her path to the door. His tall, solidly muscled body leaned over her, surrounding her with the sumptuous, sinful scents of tobacco, Scotch whisky and something masculine and undeniably dangerous. A slow, sensual smile stretched his hard mouth.
He appeared different. Softer. More approachable.
At the change, her insides seemed to flip over.
“Well, sweeting, getting us off alone was a very inspired idea.” He touched one of her fallen ringlets. “I am bored to distraction with endless talk of hunting and fencing.”
As he slowly wrapped the curl around two fingers, he brushed her collarbone. Fiery sparks tingled down her spine, so intense that she shivered and her nipples beaded, pressing against her stays. By some instinct she hadn’t even known she possessed, she arched her back, presenting herself for his assessment.
His eyes shone so vividly blue against his bronzed face that they resembled cornflowers. She swallowed tightly and wished for a long drink of claret. This more personal side of him suddenly seemed far more hazardous than his usually fierce exterior.
Well, no matter. There was nothing to fear. She would allow only as much contact as need be to get to know him a little. Since being torn from her lonely yet secure life in Ireland and thrust into Society at age sixteen, she’d spent her time allowing people only as near as was comfortable. She was an expert at emotional evasion.
It should be easy to regain her control.
But now, as rays of the late-afternoon sun played over his pale hair, turning it the colour of winter wheat, all her carefully rehearsed words flew from her mind.
Say something—anything—else he will think you’re a bird-wit.
An intimate smile, one that invited her to play, tugged at his mouth.
“In a situation like this, alone with a gentleman, it’s perfectly normal for a lady to feel some apprehension.” His hushed voice, barely audible above the piano and boisterous singing from down the corridor, accentuated their isolation. His gaze became so piercing that she had to lower her eyes.
He brushed his fingertips over her cheek. “She will invariably ask herself if he will try to kiss her.”
She jerked her eyes back to his face. God, he couldn’t mean to—not yet, surely… Peculiar, heated chills swept over her. She tried to take a step back, but found her arse flush against the bookshelf.
He leaned closer; so close that his Scotch-scented breath tickled her face. “And just in case you are wondering, Lady Cranfield—the answer is most assuredly yes.”
She should demand that he put his arm down so she could pass by and leave. She really should. But she couldn’t stop looking at his hard mouth and wondering what it would feel like upon hers. He was so close to her that his breath blew on her lips. If she moved but a fraction, she’d be kissing him.
Kissing him.
Dear God. Her breaths began to come very fast and short. Her throat went tight with a suppressed moan.
His eyes burnt as brightly as aquamarines. He looked so fierce. If he kissed her, if he dared… Oh God, it would be so harsh. That cruel-looking mouth could express itself no other way.
Excitement rushed through her, sending tingles to every point of her body, even her toes.
But no, he wouldn’t. Not yet.
He kept leaning closer. He didn’t close his eyes. Instead, he seemed to focus all the harder upon her.
Her heart pounding, unable to move away, she braced herself for his assault.
His lips brushed hers, barely. A gossamer caress.
He lifted his head.
It was done.
And it hadn’t even begun.
He held her chin, appearing so cool, so unaffected. His kiss had seemed to sear her. An urge to put her fingers to her lips arose in her. She resisted it, for it would give away too much of how she was affected.
Never show your feelings.
He traced his thumb along her lower lip, slowly, deliberately, as he studied her with eyes that now glittered with something powerful and predatory. Heat pooled in her pelvis, low and spreading even lower.
She went weak all over, as if she’d lain in a sunny window seat for too long. Her knees almost buckled. She forced them to lock. To be strong.
It should not have affected her so profoundly. It had been just a peck—not a true kiss at all. William had poured out all of his skill upon her and hadn’t garnered even a tenth of the reaction in her that this man’s peck had.
Ruel traced her jaw line with his fingertips. Unthinkingly, she leaned in to his touch.
“Of course, once he has kissed her, then it’s his turn to wonder…” His voice sounded unnaturally loud in her ears. “How will she respond? Will she withdraw, or can he ignite some hidden fire?”
She sensed that he was toying with her. She didn’t understand flirtation—why had she imagined she could carry off this ruse? Was he making advances in order to have a laugh with Francesca and her simpering friends later? Hurt blossomed in her chest. She resented him for that. She ought to feel indignant, superior, uncaring—anything but hurt.
“Please don’t make sport of me.”
She cringed. Was that quavering, pleading voice really hers?
An infinitesimal pause. “Now, why on earth would I do such a thing?” His voice was as smooth as velvet.
“To please your vanity,” she replied, trying to regain her wits.
“Here.” He placed her hand to his chest. The contours of his muscles were hard, powerfully developed. Even more so than she’d expected. His body heat radiated through the satin and, beneath her hand, his heart’s beat was rapid and strong.
“Is that vanity?” He put a finger under her chin, giving her no choice but to face him. “Is it?” He gentled his grip.
The warmth in his voice settled over her like luscious hot chocolate. Melting her insides to quivering burgoo, rendering her speechless, unable to move.
“My dear, lovely Lady Cranfield, I am going kiss you again.”

Review- Never Had A Dream Come True By Jennifer Wenn



Buy Link: Never Had a Dream Come True (The Royal Family)

Rating: 5 Romanticals

This is the second book that I have read of Jennifer’s. When I heard she had a new release I excitedly went right away to buy it.

I love Jennifer’s writing style. She focuses on family and love.

Penny is a lovely beautiful young lady but she is the younger sister of a beauty and most people do not even see her. They are too busy fussing over her sister. Her sister gets all the attention including her family’s attention. Everything was always about her sister.
Penny wants to find a true love match for herself. She has had a crush on her best friends uncle since she was a little girl. But he is known as a playboy. She finally realizes that longing for him could be nothing but trouble.

Will she be able to get Rake out of her mind?

Rake a handsome playboy finally notices that his niece’s best friend is all grown up. She has become a beautiful stunning woman. She makes him feel things he has never felt before.

Will Rake be able to make Penny see that they are meant for one another?

Half way through this book I was blown away by a major twist that Jennifer threw in… I never expected it 🙂

This was an emotional roller coaster for me. I felt so many emotions. I could relate to everything Penny went through and I felt for her. I think a lot of women will be able to relate to Penny.

This book was tenderly written. A sweet and intensely emotional love story you will not forget.

I hope we get a book for Penny’s older sister 🙂

Review- Lady Star by Claudy Conn



Buy Link: Lady Star

Review: 5 Romanticals

Claudy always amazes me with her books. She comes up with great plots that are exciting. She comes up with these unique story lines that focus on family and love. Each of her books brings us something new.

Every time I am about to read one of her books I feel like I am stepping into a time travel machine LOL

With this book you can’t help but be pulled in from page one. Especially if you have read her previous book with Sir Edward.

We have the handsome Sir Edward who we met in a previous book. He is recovering from a broken heart or at least he thinks he is “wink wink” 🙂

Star is a young beauty left with only her brother. They are having a hard time keeping up with their bills. Star’s brother gets them in some serious trouble.

Sir Edward meets Star and pretty much right away he sees her beauty even though she is basically dressed in rags. There is passion between them that heats up the pages.

Will Star be able to trust Sir Edward? Will she lose her heart to him?

Can Sir Edward get Star to trust him and will she let him help her? Will he lose is heart to her in the process?

Well you will want to read to find out!

If you enjoy a story with Love, Passion, Sensual sex scenes and Strong family values then this is a book for you.




Review- Trust Me by Nastasha Blackthorne


Trust Me Buy Link: Trust Me (Regency Risks)

I gave this book 5 Romanticals!

First of all I have to say I am a big fan of Natasha Blackthorne’s. She has amazed me again and again with her books and this one totally blew me away. She is a master class in this genre. A stand out for sure.

Trust Me is Book 2 in the Regency Risk Series, when I found out that we would be getting more of Jon and Anne I was so excited.

I love Natasha’s writing style. She brings you back in time and takes you on a superb journey that stays with you. This book was very well written.

Jon is an handsome dominate but caring male who wants Anne’s complete trust. Anne has come along way since A Measured Risk but she is still holding some of herself back from Jon.
Will Jon be able to heal all of her before he loses her? Will Anne be able to be everything Jon needs? Well you really need to read this to find out!

In this intensely erotic, emotionally driven love story we get light to moderate BDSM, passion filled love making and sizzling sex scenes that will have you melting in your seat breathlessly. Prepare to fan yourself while saying a lot of OH MY! 🙂
The sex scenes were so hot I thought my kindle would ignite. I have no doubt that if I was reading this in paperback that it would of gone up in flames 🙂

A true love story about the struggles of love, trust, submission, domination and how to deal with it back in the Regency era.

Loved this book and I can’t wait for the next one 🙂
