Blurb: 

Never did I think a girl like Gretchen Hawthorne would be the woman of my dreams.

She is stubborn, irritating, and can piss me off at the drop of a hat. But she is also sweet and has a vulnerability about her that she doesn’t allow many to see.

She let me in for a split second, and what I found was even more than I had bargained for. Her façade is nothing more than a mask to hide her fears.

One wild night in the barn at my cousin’s house, and I’m hooked.

She’s intriguing.

She’s beautiful.

But she also has it in her head that she and I will never work.

Which is ridiculous, and I vow to prove her wrong.

I’m Colton Thomas, and I’m stubborn too, and I do not give up easily.

She better hold on tight because I’m coming for her. And I plan to break down all those walls she’s built so high around her.

Romance Book Review! ~ Cowboy in a Kilt (Kilted Hearts #1) by Kait Nolan

About:

A cowboy without a home

Robbed of the family ranch that should have been his legacy, Raleigh Beaumont is a man with no roots and no purpose. When a friend drags him to Vegas, he figures he’s got nothing to lose. But after a hell of a lot of whiskey and a high stakes poker game with a beautiful stranger, he finds himself the alleged owner of a barony in Scotland.

An heiress with a crumbling heritage

When her brother’s bride disappears just days before the wedding that’s meant to save their ancestral home from the mad marriage pact that’s held their family captive for generations, Kyla MacKean believes they’ve been granted a reprieve. Until she finds out about the new, single—male—owner of Lochmara and knows she’s next on the chopping block or ownership of both their estates reverts to the crown.

A modern answer to a three-hundred-year-old problem.

Raleigh’s lost his land once. He’s not about to lose it again. Not even because of some lunatic pact made centuries before he was born. Kyla’s desperate to save Ardinmuir. She agrees to marry him on one condition: They wed for one year to satisfy the pact, then get a quick and quiet divorce. There’s no stipulation against it, and they’ll both get what they want.

But this displaced Texan and his fiery bride are about to find so much more than they bargained for.

I LOVED Kyla and Raleigh! These two are an example of my perfect romance with their slow burn love story. He was stripped of his family legacy and she’s fighting like crazy to hang on to hers, which somehow made them a perfect partnership.

Complete with a rocky first impression.

I had such a fun time reading Cowboy In A Kilt that I devoured it completely. It’s a fun story that’s not just a marriage of convenience, not just friends to lovers but also a kind of fish out of water story. Raleigh somehow fits into the town and makes his own connections which makes his home feel like his home.

This is the start to a new series and this first book has me excited for the next story. Usually the first book in a series spends too much time telling us about all the characters but even though we didn’t know these characters beforehand, they were introduced seamlessly and well-fleshed out.

There are so many characters I want to know about and I hope they all get a love story…even possibly Malcolm and Charlotte!

Cowboy in a Kilt is such a fun story, a good time from start to finish and now I need to know, who’s story is next!

Excerpt 

Copyright 2022 Mel Walker

He looks good. Too good.

I stare into Elijah’s Stevenson’s intense hazel eyes, and I’m transported back in time. His gaze has changed; it carries with it more confidence and self-assurance than the nervous tic he used to possess. His inability to maintain eye contact with me had always given me a thrill, made me feel special, gave me a sense of power. His ability to swing on an emotional pendulum was one of my most favorite things.

One second, he’d forget who I was, and we’d be just two friends, hanging out and enjoying the little moments, something other boys in my class never understood. They always looked to impress me with their over-the-top gestures. Not Elijah. Once he got over the nervousness and he relaxed enough to reveal himself, we shared some truly special moments. Moments I didn’t get to share with many other people, moments I know he didn’t share with anyone else.

And then there were moments like this.

Friends don’t greet one another this way. Yet, we were always only friends. When these greetings started, I never expected that they would last. I expected he’d want more. I waited. Waited for him to take charge, and every single time he retreated. Until that very last time.

But it’s been ten years, and I’m different. I’m a shell of the princess who ruled the hallways at Spring Hills High. The ten years were not nearly as kind to me as they’ve been to him.

He has grown into a man. A tall, dark, handsome man with designer clothes, a New York City strut, and a confidence he never possessed before. This time his gaze doesn’t falter. We lock eyes, and it’s me who looks away first.

I inhale the expensive cologne, and images of equally tall models and trust fund women on his arm invade. My feet retreat, taking with me the confidence I possessed a moment ago. I realize now that he’s in the driver’s seat and the best I can do is hold on tight and pray he leads us to the promised land.

Who says you can’t go home?

Coming back to Abbott Ridge and starting over was my plan. But, just like everything in life, plans change.

Now I’m stuck without a job and forced to rethink how I’ll start my own company.

Things between us are going great…until a call from New York presents me with a new offer that has me second guessing my stay in Abbott Ridge.

Wade

Tate

Macy Carmichael has been my friend with mind-blowing benefits for a long time now. But, I’ve been craving more from her. More than she’s ready to give.

When my siblings book me on an all-inclusive cruise, I jump at the idea of a free vacation and a chance to get away for a while. Unfortunately, my meddling older sister left out a few important details—like the name of the cruise. Love at Sea. Is she for real?

If that’s not bad enough, she signed me up for a variety of activities and makes me promise that I’ll take part in every single one. She also failed to mention that she convinced Macy to book the same cruise.

Imagine my surprise when she sits down across the table from me during the speed dating event I didn’t even want to attend. All bets are off. I’ll be damned if some other man is getting close to what’s mine.

New Romance Book Release & Book Review ~ One Kind Soul by Christine DePetrillo

Title: One Kind Soul
Series: One Kind Deed Series
Author: Christine DePetrillo
Release Date: August 25, 2022
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Goodreads: https://bit.ly/3SfMkA7 

Tagline: When hot farmer Christian Henley agrees to give her a ride to Maplehaven, bartender Nicole Travers can’t help noticing everything about him. It’s going to be a long drive. 

Blurb:

Christian probably attracted the attention of supermodels. Nicole was no supermodel.

She isn’t enough. She isn’t worthy. No one will ever want her. Nicole Travers believes this to her core. Her older sister made sure to remind Nicole of these truths on a daily basis when they were kids. Now, many years later, her sister’s voice still rings in her ears every time a guy catches her eye. She’s better off focusing on waitressing and tending bar. At least she knows how to do those two things. Attracting a soul mate? Forget it. Although watching her best friend meet her true love makes Nicole wish for the same. Too bad she doesn’t have what it takes.

When her only option to get to her best friend’s wedding is to accept a ride with sexy farmer Christian Henley, Nicole’s self-doubts heckle her from the back seat. Loudly. But she promised to be the maid of honor, and she’s not going to bail on the bride. Besides, a handsome Vermont mountain man with a body full of muscles won’t even notice someone like her. Except he does, and when Christian comes to her rescue on a busy Boston street, Nicole can’t help noticing everything about him. It’s going to be a long drive.

Is one kind soul enough to quiet the voices?

One Kind Soul is a one-night-stand, forced-proximity, small-town, contemporary romance that features a bartending heroine and a farmer hero who rescue each other in every sense of the word.

Teasers:

He was, apparently, a nice guy in playboy’s clothing. He’d gone so far as to try not being so nice, but it went against everything inside of him. 

Mostly inside his heart.

****

The moment Nicole’s hand slid against his palm and the rough skin there scraped along hers, her libido took note. It’d been a while since her libido took note of anything.

****

Christian Henley was a great surprise.

****

“It might be hard for you to believe, but you are extraordinary.”

****

“Just because I have a penis—a stunning one—doesn’t mean I’m a barbarian.”

****

His body was stiff and sore. His brain was a scattered mess of thoughts. His heart bled. Only Nicole could fix that last one.

****

 He kissed her as if his survival was in jeopardy. Quite possibly it was.

 ****

“Let it all out, baby. Leave it all on the floor in here and then we’ll figure out a way to sweep it all away. Together.”

****

Excerpt #1:

“Tell me you’re not going back to Room 513.” Christian sifted his fingers through Nicole’s hair, fanning it out on the bed beneath her. “Tell me you’ll stay right here with me.”

Nicole rose to her elbows then sat up, nudging Christian off her. She slid off the bed and walked, naked, to the adjoining door that was still open. She peeked into her hotel room then looked back to Christian, whose pout was absolutely adorable. As if he might throw a tantrum if she left him alone.

“I’m thinking we ought to see if that bed is as good as this one.” She pointed into her room then at his bed. “I didn’t only buy a single condom, you know. Those things come in boxes.”

The smile that bloomed on Christian’s face was something Nicole would never forget. She couldn’t remember a time she’d ever made a man that happy. When he got up from the bed and stalked toward her, his naked body drool-worthy in every sense of the word, she knew they’d make excellent use of both rooms tonight.

One Kind Soul is the story of two people who have not met their person, the one who just gets them. Who loves and accepts them for exactly who they are. Nicole and Christian may not seem like great partners at the start. He’s confident and flirtatious and she is not confident—at all—and kind of put off by his confidence.

Why?

To put it simple, family issues. Nicole is plagued by self-doubt through not fault of her own mostly and at times it is painful to read but at other times it is just downright annoying. I liked them together, as a couple they worked well together. I even liked the bit of mystery that was wholly unexpected based on the book description. It was a nice hint of confusion through a story that sometimes was a bit too sweet.

This is a good romance and the thing I liked/appreciated most was just how capable Nicole was, how much they both changed and grew as the story came to an end. The secondary characters were fun and endearing, and it was wonderful to watch Nicolle finally found her niche.

Her place in the world.

Excerpt #2:

“Technically, I didn’t give you a choice. I kissed you first. Remember?” Nicole nudged Christian to his back and climbed onto his lap. Boy, did he wish he hadn’t put his sweats back on.

“Oh, I remember. I remember in vivid detail.”

“So I don’t need to remind you then? Okay.” She inched back, but he grabbed her around the waist, keeping her in place.

“Remind? No. Re-kiss? Yes.” He caught her lips with his and his anger quickly dissipated. How could anyone stay angry at Nicole when she kissed like this? 

Author Bio:

Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.

Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.

She lives in Vermont with her husband and cat who defend her fiercely from all evils.

Excerpt

Copyright 2022 @Louise Lennox“Riddick!” A shrill voice I hate all too well calls out. “Long Time, no see! Did you come to watch me perform? You know I’ve still got all my moves.”Mandy fucking FosterI’m going to be sick. And Riddick looks like he may be as well. That’s his fault. No one told him to use Mandy as his go-to fuck toy all throughout college. She’s always thought she had claim to him, even though he never made the slightest gesture to claim her. Now, she’s all over him like a cat with claws.He clears his throat and seeks me out with his eyes. “Umm… no, I’m actually here to support Brandi.” He nods his head towards me, forcing Mandy to turn around. I give her a saccharine smile and wave. She rolls her eyes but quickly recovers.“Oh yeah, I forgot she’s like a little sister to you. Of course, you’d want to see her perform. But isn’t it a bonus that you also get me out of the deal? Someone who knows how to use her body very well.”Bitch. Two can play this game.I walk over to Kruger and step beside him. Placing my hand in his, I squeeze and throw him a quick wink before bringing his ring hand to my lips and brushing my lips over the back of his knuckles. Sweet baby Jesus, his skin is incredible. I feel his calluses on the inside of my hand, but the skin brushing my lips is soft as silk. My poor neglected pussy is dripping from his sexy scent alone. Lord, I want to huff him like fiend addicted to glue. I close my eyes and take a deep breath before I hear him clear his throat, soft enough for my ears. That’s right, I had a reason to come over here, and getting high off the smell of his skin was not it. I glance at him and peep the right side of his mouth turned up in the beginning of a smile. I look away and glare at Mandy.“We are not siblings. Far from it, Mandy, what we are goes deeper than that. Wouldn’t you agree, Riddick?”My eyes never leave her scowl. Her eyes never leave my hand wrapped in his. She looks like she might combust, she’s so angry.Riddick faces me and his jaw flinches. His eyes are predatory, and I get the distinct feeling that I finally opened a door he was seeking entrance into. “I definitely agree,” he rumbles. “We’re the best part of each other.”His words almost knock me to my ass. What the hell is that supposed to mean? He returns my earlier gesture by flipping our clasped hands over and dropping kisses on the inside of my wrist. My knees buckle at the gesture and my breath catches. He chuckles and pulls me away from Mandy, winking as we turn to leave. “We’ll see you around, Mandy. Break a leg.”When we get out of her view, I drop Riddick’s hand and laugh. The sound is nervous and unnatural, but I follow through with it, anyway. Anything to break this awkward tension between us. But when I look up at Riddick’s face, he doesn’t look uncomfortable at all. He looks determined. I place my hand on my neck and swallow. “Mandy is still hot for you. She never could keep her hands off you.”Riddick nods. “Yeah, she never could.’ He steps closer to me, and I step back. Still, he stalks me until my back is against a wall and I realize we’re practically alone on the side of the stage. He trails the back of his knuckles across my cheek and smirks. “But you know, Kitten, I’m curious about your touch, not hers. Do you want me to touch you again?”“Wh..wh..at.” I stammer.He nods. “Umm hmm. Unfortunately, Mandy has had the undeserved privilege of touching my body all over. I wasn’t very discerning in the past. She’s had her legs wrapped around my thighs, lips around my cock, her hands grabbing my ass as I thrust into her. But none of those touches set my entire body and soul on fire, like the brush of your lips against my hand a few moments ago.” Oh, God… his mouth. It’s so dirty. Every word is going straight to my core.Riddick steps into me, and I gulp at his closeness. Part of me is terrified of being pushed against a wall by such a powerful man. If he wanted to, he could trap me there with his weight. It reminds me of the first time Byron took my innocence. The pressure of his body made me feel trapped in a situation I could not control. With Riddick, I just feel deliciously covered.
