THE GREEK BILLIONAIRE'S BABY REVENGE - Jennie Lucas



Jennie Lucas is a rising star and she certainly demonstrates it her December release of The Greek Billionaire’s Baby Revenge.

The book begins on an almost violent note when Anna Rostoff and her sister realize that Nikos Stavrakis, Anna’s ex-lover and father of her baby has come all the way to Russia and has taken possession of her infant son.

Nikos is one determined father, he will have and raise his son and he’s angry, angry that he has for months been deprived of his son and silently angry that his mistress Anna left him. He wants revenge, he wants his son and most of all he desires and is determined that he and Anna will marry and raise their son together.
How will he convince her? Your heart will stop as you read about this very sexy and determined man’s plan, a plan to have that family of his own, to be the father he himself had never had. However, his plan did not include love because Nikos believed to love would make him weak!

Anna can’t believe Nikos wants to marry her. How can he think it would work when she left him months before because she thought he was having an affair with his new secretary? Anna had once been Nikos PA and loved the job and working for him. She didn’t count on falling in love with him, becoming his mistress and expecting his baby. When she found out she was pregnant, everything changed…..Nikos insisted she quit her job and stay at home until the baby was born. When she thought he was having an affair, she left and had her baby on her own.

There are other issues involved as well…….her father had worked for Nikos and one learns later that he stole from Nikos, was badly in debt and also owed money to a family friend and Anna’s past employer, Victor. To top it off, Anna’s mother has also been borrowing money from Victor and the debt is astronomical.

In the end, many lessons are learned by both Niko and Anna as to what really matters in life……mainly love and family. The Greek Billionaire’s Baby Revenge is action packed, very sensual and passionate, an all around outstanding and exceedingly pleasing read, one the reader will remember for a long time.

THE SHEIKH AND THE CHRISTMAS BRIDE - Susan Mallery



Susan Mallery has again charmed her readers with her latest edition to her Desert Rogue series. The heroine Kayleen will warm the reader’s heart with her gentleness, sincerity, innocence and fierce heart. Mallery has the ability to immediately draw the reader into the story with her first chapters when we’re introduced to this lovely teacher in a orphanage who is like a lioness protecting three recently orphaned girls and goes after the leader of a tribe who has come to take the girls back to their camp.

In most of the Desert Rogue series the rulers are trying to marry off their sons and obtain heirs and in The Sheikh and the Christmas Bride, the same applies. King Makhtar has six sons and wants them married and settled. His sons have been raised without the benefit of a mother and their Aunt Lina for the most part has been the “mother figure” in their lives. She is aware that in a neighbouring Kingdom, King Hassan has been very successful in marrying off his sons and daughters. She calls upon her friendship and attraction to King Hassen to develop a plan for her nephew Prince As’ad. When there is trouble at the orphanage she calls upon As’ad to help defuse the situation. She talks him into taking the three girls himself into his protection and suggests he adopts them. Along with bringing the girls to the palace, Lina suggests he brings Kayleen as well as their nanny.

As this story develops, one is immediately drawn to the attraction both As’ad and Kayleen feel for each other. As’ad vows never to love a woman, as it would make him weak. However, he cannot fight his attraction for this lovely redhead and moves in, takes her virginity and then all hell breaks loose.

Kayleen knows what it’s like to be orphaned, rejected both by her mother and grandmother, she’s grown up in a convent and longs to belong, have a family and be loved. When As’ad proposes they marry because of their one night and attraction for each other plus giving the girls stability, Kayleen dares to believe she can have it all. Because of her inner strength, and her love for As’ad she is fierce to prove they can have it all and she is going to show him and claim this prince as her own.

Their journey and discovery is one you won’t want to miss. It’s the perfect holiday read, a wonderful love story and the continuation of the incredible Desert Rogue series. I personally can’t wait for the next book!

Book Description:

From royal nanny to princess bride?

Dedicated teacher Kayleen James was determined to safeguard the future of her orphaned students—even if it meant defying Prince As'ad of El Deharia himself! But the seductive ruler stunned her by offering to adopt the three little girls. On one condition…

Suddenly As'ad was a single father in desperate need of a nanny, and Kayleen was the only woman for the job. Soon the palace was in an uproar—all because of the spirited redhead. Losing his heart wasn't part of the arrangement, until Kayleen showed the honor-bound sheik what he'd been missing. Could he convince her that she belonged in his exotic desert kingdom as his princess—and his wife?

What neither Tegan nor Maverick count on is their mutual attraction for each other and let me tell you their story not only sizzles it will take you on their sensual journey, one you won’t soon forget. Tegan fights her attraction for this man, every step of the way and Maverick is relentless in his pursuit even though he has a rule…..never again to get involved with his PA due to a past relationship where he was deceived.

Tegan counts on her sister being gone for a week but when Morgan is hospitalized from an accident and she realizes she can’t escape from the masquerade, she accepts she will be stuck working for the man. Her defenses against Maverick are shot to pieces, leaving her no choice but to give in to her desire for him. When he suggests an affair, Tegan gives in because she can’t help herself.

It is absolutely fabulous.....it's sexy, warm, very, very funny and just an extremely entertaining read!.

I so enjoyed this book…….I laughed, I cried and found it to be the perfect Holiday read. Zoe Jensen’s character was fun, invigorating, dear, just plain sweet and not the usual woman in a Harlequin Presents novel. Her love for life, animals and her Kindergarten students was endearing and her secret crush on her best friend Grant Cortez will squeeze your heart.

Grant and Zoe have grown up together and during their later years have had two “sexy” encounters which left Zoe hurt and embarrassed because all of her life she has secretly loved Grant. Their relationship in spite of everything remained in tact and they consider themselves best friends.

Zoe has never felt she’s belonged as her parents made it clear the son they lost should have run their ranch. When her father decides to retire, he sells the ranch to Grant, leaving Zoe without a home. She understands that she would never have been a rancher due to her love for animals, being a vegetarian, plus her non-relationship with her family, well she feels abandoned and unloved with the exception of the one man she can always count on, her best friend Grant.

Grant has the responsibly of running the family ranch and business as his father and stepmother have moved to another state due to his father’s health. For years, he has watched over Zoe, has been her closest friend and truly adores her. Now Grant finds himself not only thinking more about her but also fights a physical attraction for Zoe. On top of everything else, he now finds himself having to take care of her as she’s been evicted from her apartment because of all of her pets….cats, birds, dogs, hamster.

Now they find themselves in a bad situation and where will Zoe live? With Grant? Because of spending more time together they find themselves doing the one thing that Grant has a rule against…..the NO kissing rule, yet on a few occasions, the rule is broken. They both fight the attraction but in the end give in and then decisions need to be made…..should they take it a step further and explore their feelings?

You will absolutely adore this wonderful story, not only due to it’s warmth and humour but the magical journey itself…….falling in love and the miracle of Christmas for these two lovers.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS - Ann Roth

The magic of the holiday season is captured in Ann Roth’s All I want for Christmas. It’s an extremely heart-warming and lovely book full of fabulous characters and set on an island in Washington State. What more could a reader ask for than the warm residents of Halo Island.

Tina Morrell lost both of her parents at a young age and her beloved Kindergarten teacher GG along with many neighbours have raised her in a loving environment, sent her to college, believed in her ability to someday run her ad agency and loved her to death. Tina is now a very successful advertising exec and up for a promotion at her Seattle firm. However, she has taken a leave to take care of GG who is recuperating from hip surgery.

Ryan Chase, left Los Angeles as a successful business man and has taken his captivating five year old daughter Maggie and moved to Halo Island, to give her stability and a home in a wonderful neighbourhood. Ryan’s wife died when Maggie was young, his fiancĂ© left them for a “high powered” career and then his nanny also had to leave to help raise her grandson. The loss has affected both Ryan and Maggie. Maggie longs for a woman or mother figure in her life and Ryan wants no part of any sort of relationship, especially a permanent one.

Yet when Ryan and Tina meet, his daughter is immediately drawn to Tina and does everything in her power to spend time with her and GG. Maggie longs for a mother and adores Tina……the feeling mutual. Ryan is extremely protective of Maggie and doesn’t want her to become attached to Tina. Every step of the way, Ryan fights his attraction and puts up a protective armor.

Both Ryan and Tina are attracted to each other immediately and fight their attraction for each other every step of the way. Their journey in finding love and each other will melt your heart. However, the entire story, it’s marvellous characters, the warmth I felt while reading this story……well let’s just say, it made me believe there “really is a Santa” and reminded me of the miracle of Christmas.


Book Description:

What exactly are you asking Santa for?

"It's A Secret. How Do You Spell Mommy?" Nothing is more precious to Ryan Chase than five-year-old Maggie. She's the reason the widower moved to Halo Island in the first place—he wanted to get away from his hectic, work-all-hours job so he could spend more time with his daughter. Ryan will do anything to make sure Maggie is protected from hurt, which means no attachments to anyone who comes into their lives—and plans to leave.

As soon as the holidays are over, Tina Morrell is going back to Seattle to her busy job, and hopefully a big promotion. Her career has always been the most important thing in Tina's life—that is, until she meets the adorable Maggie and her incredibly hunky father. But Ryan won't let Tina get close—even though his daughter seems to be bringing them together. As the spirit of Christmas descends over the island, it's the wishes of one little girl that may be granted!
