Christi Williams Erotic Western Heat Rating: 4
She’ll do anything to get her way. Tall, elegant and beautiful, Emma Thorpe has wanted a baby for years. The yearning for a child occupies all her thoughts, her time, her effort, and any money she and her husband can scrape up for medical intervention. After trying and failing to conceive, the solution that finally comes to her is to leave her husband and hope to find a man—any man—capable of fulfilling her deepest desire. Big, handsome Clay Thorpe isn’t the kind of man to let his wife just wander away. It takes a few months of Emma’s absence from his bed to devise a plan, but he’s determined. Eventually, Clay lures Emma home with a convoluted strategy only he could concoct, involving an antique diamond ring, sex three times a day, and...a turkey baster? Review: This is really hot! Holy moly. I liked that Clay and Emma immediately come together and realize that since they love each other, they should be together. There was no angsty hemming and hawing. Of course, Emma had moved out some time ago, so maybe this was just the perfect moment for them to come back together. Clay’s “plan” is hilarious, yet so sweet. I can just picture him and Micah discussing it. Who knew cowboys liked gossip? Ha, the trickster. Although, it was starting to look believable by the end there.
Bending the Rules Marie Harte Erotic Romance Heat Rating: 4
Rex Samson is at the top of his game. His business is booming, his family loves him, and there’s no woman—or man—he can’t charm. Until he meets Natalie Wielder, a tough-as-nails city planner. She’s firm, sexy, and exactly what he needs—a woman to put him in his place. She’s also all work and no play, and that won’t do at all. Nat has better things to do than play with the mayor’s golden boy, but orders are orders.
Review: Rex Sampson meets Natalie Weilder and asks her to go on a date with him to a function they both have to attend. She doesn’t know him from Adam and was definitely a bit reluctant to attend the function with a complete stranger. But he turned it into a challenge that she reluctantly accepted. They actually made quite an interestingly couple despite the secrets that they have between them and they discovered what they were when they got to know one another. It was flirty, sexy and definitely for the over 18 crowd and quite enjoyable. If you’re interested, pick up a copy you just may find you like it a lot. | Reviewer: Cassandra Graham |
