Inside the Book:

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of southern charm . . .

“Hello, Ms. Vivian . . . it’s been a long time.”

And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It’s been years since she last saw Harrison Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.

Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry.

She got what she wanted—and more—but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?

Harrison got out too . . . making it all the way to Wall Street, until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cufflinks for a good set of hand tools.

Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he’s come face-to-face with the one who got away. He’s not looking for love. He’s not even looking for sex . . . so why is resisting her the hardest thing he’s ever done?

 

Review:

It’s been a while since I’ve read a Rachel Gibson book, so I was really excited to have a chance to read this one. It does have a slow start…partly, I think because the “one who got away” aspect of the blurb isn’t really correct. If you go into this one thinking that Henry (the hero’s name in my ARC is Henry, so that’s the name I’m going to use here) has ever lusted, secretly or otherwise, after Vivien in the past, you may be a bit disappointed by the h/H interactions for the first quarter or so. This is probably a book you’re better off going into without preconceived notions.

Instead, just read the book. 🙂

It starts with a few of young Vivien’s (full name: Vivien Leigh Rochet–so Southern; love it!) diary entries, a device that I really enjoy in books and which is used for a nice effect throughout the novel. Since this is a return-home story as much as it is a enemies-to-lovers one, the entries are a fun way to bring us up to speed on her childhood without bogging us down in flashbacks. In the novel’s real time, she’s just come back home for her mother’s funeral. Since leaving North Carolina for Hollywood years ago, she’s come back as little as possible, so there’s quite a few things about her mother’s life in the interim (and earlier, for that matter) that she had no idea about–some which are going to come as quite a shock.

But the biggest shock of all just might be Henry Whitley-Schuler, who may or may not still be a scary butthead, but is most definitely much hotter than Vivien remembers.

This is going to be a problem. Or not be a problem, depending on your perspective. 😉

Their romance is a slow burn, and seems doomed to failure due to their history and the fact that she’s now a movie star and he’s dedicated himself to a low-stress life as a carpenter. Despite this, I loved the two of them together and really, really hoped Ms. Gibson would find a way.

Spoiler alert: she does 🙂

My only complaints? 1) The resolution happens very quickly. It felt pretty rushed, especially given how slow moving their relationship is for so much of the book. 2) How they’re ultimately going to make their seemingly incompatible lifestyles work isn’t really explained. 3) Not enough cute Vivien-and-Henry togetherness time (at least partly related to complaint #1).

Still, There was a lot to like in Ms Gibson’s latest book, and I very much enjoyed the time I spent reading it. I’m so glad she’s back!

Entangled Indulgence is so happy to be continuing the summer reading celebration with Robin Bielman! Robin Bielman is the queen of sweet, heat, and happily ever afters. Trust us, you don’t want to miss out on these irresistible
reads!

Take a Risk Bundle by Robin Bielman
On sale for just $1.99!
About the Bundle:
 
The Take a Risk bundle by USA Today best selling author Robin Bielman includes three of her popular Take a Risk novellas plus an additional, never-before-published novella, One Night of Risk.
 
Worth the Risk
Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he’s back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career-if he doesn’t steal her heart first. Samantha’s vowed to hate him, but one wild weekend could change everything.
 
Risky Surrender
When Keats McCall catches Lucy Davenport at his latest project, he suspects she’s up to no good. She’s secretive, sexy as hell-and has trouble written all over her. He devises a plan to keep her close so he can watch her. But what he isn’t prepared for is just how close he wants to get.
 
His Million Dollar Risk
Charlize Beckett is in deeeep trouble. This is her one chance to prove to her publisher dad that she’s a serious reporter, even if she has to pretend she’s someone else. And the subject of the story, Connor Gibson, is way too charming for her to maintain any objectivity, or even keep her from getting into all kinds of sexy trouble. By going off the record, Charlie is putting both her reputation and her heart on the line…
 
One Night of Risk
With her mom sick, good girl Malia Davis has returned to Kauai in order do something bad-retrieve a piece of crystal believed to have healing properties. She thinks her only problem is accessing the “closed to the public” temple. She’s wrong. She has an even bigger problem-former Navy SEAL and security expert Clay Doherty, the guy who broke her heart ten years ago who she still wants. Certain that Malia is up to no good, Clay will do whatever it takes to protect her…even if it means losing her for good.
Excerpt:

He grinned and the potency of it stole her breath. His dimples should come with an advisory label: Will cause hearts to flutter and panties to spontaneously combust. “What about you?”

“What about me?” She swallowed the lump sitting in the back of her throat.

“You haven’t told me why you’re here.”

She took a step back. His intuitiveness made her jumpy. But worse, his nearness made her light-headed and warm in places she shouldn’t be. She seriously thought about stopping the conversation by flinging her arms around his neck and kissing him until talking was the last thing he wanted to do.

Which would be a huge mistake. She may secretly crave to be a little bit bad, and remember how good being bad with Clay had felt, but right now, given the situation with her mom, her emotions were too raw. She was too vulnerable.

“I’m here for a little R&R and to spend time with Kalani.” That’s what she’d told everyone. With a busy studio and all her free time spent with her mom, she did need a little mental break. A few days to lose herself.

You could lose yourself in Clay.

He narrowed his eyes and eliminated the space she’d put between them. “You also here to excavate?”

What?

His smug smile made her mad…and somehow hotter. Dammit, why did he have to make her feel stuff? Then he licked the pad of his thumb and proceeded to wipe the corner of her forehead. “You’ve got a little dirt here,” he said, his voice and touch equally seductive. “And”he dropped his arm“under your fingernails.”

She stared at him. For several long, agonizing seconds.

He could probably tell her what color her bra and panties were with his insane powers of deduction.

“Still the strong silent type when things get uncomfortable.” The annoyingly sexy turn of his lips grew a little bigger.

Worth the Risk by Robin Bielman

About the Book:
Their love was ancient history…until their paths crossed again.
Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he’s back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career–if he doesn’t steal her heart first. Samantha’s vowed to hate him, but it’s more than anger heating the competition between them.
With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at love…is it worth the risk?

New Release Review! TO HAVE AND TO HOLD by Serena Bell (Returning Home #3)

To Have and to Hold
by Serena Bell

Synopsis:

In this emotionally charged novel from the bestselling author of Hold on Tight (“Sweet, sexy, and real.”—Jessica Scott), a war hero fights to remember the love he left behind—and the woman who refuses to fade away.

The reunion is supposed to be the start of the rest of their lives. But when Trina Levine sees the soldier she promised to love forever, Hunter Cross looks at her like she’s a stranger. The connection is gone, lost in the blank stare of those soulful brown eyes. Hunter remembers his young daughter but not Trina, and he certainly can’t recall why Trina and her own child are living in his house. Although his lean, rugged frame bears the scars of battle, his mind took the worst hit.

But Hunter Cross hasn’t forgotten everything. His body remembers caressing Trina’s delicate curves, holding her close, never wanting to let go. Was it just a dream, or was it real life? Now, as he tries to put the pieces back together, Trina’s the one who comforts him when his night terrors strike. It’s Trina whose warm touch rekindles a connection no man could deny. Even with the odds stacked against them, Hunter wants to believe. Because passion has the power to awaken the past—and remake the future.

 

Review:

OMG. So. Good!

I honestly had a hard time putting this one down–except during the parts where things got totally intense, when I really needed to take a break and decompress…and even then, I was back about thirty seconds later, unable to wait and see what was going to happen next.

“I know my feelings, and they’re not going to change.”

Gah! Remember that line…because it takes Hunter a really, really long time to.

This has got to be one of the best–if not the best–uses of the amnesia troupe out there. Poor Hunter doesn’t even realize for quite some time that he has holes in his memory–his brain has developed such a clever loop that he believes everything is hunky dory (except for the brand new, impressive scars he’s sporting) until he gets home and finds that life is not quite as he thought it was. His mom has a new boyfriend he should remember, but doesn’t. His daughter has grown and changed more than a year’s worth of growing and changing. And his dead wife’s good friend and her daughter have moved into his home…and he doesn’t remember asking them to and can’t imagine why he would have.

Seeing things from Trina’s POV is heartbreaking–it took so much for her to trust him in the first place, when everything in her was screaming “Don’t do it! Men leave! Love doesn’t last!” and having it all torn away just as she’d started to depend on them? Devastating.

Seeing things from Hunter’s perspective isn’t any easier to read either, because not only is he confused as heck about what’s going on and totally frustrated, he’s also practically drowning in guilt–guilt over his former wife, guilt over missing chunks of his daughter and mother’s lives, and guilt over the pain he can see he’s causing Trina.

And then there’s the girls–Hunter’s daughter Clara and Trina’s daughter Phoebe–they were already BFFs before Hunter left, and now they’re more like sisters than ever. Hunter and Trina’s estrangement tears them apart too, in more ways than one.

I wasn’t sure Ms. Bell was going to be able to fix this situation…but holy cow, did she ever. It. Was. Brilliant.

I may have cheered. And cried, just a little. There may also have been a bit of spontaneous clapping.

Definitely my favorite of the series so far. If there’s going to be a fourth (and there is a single guy hanging around our Returning Home heroes, so I am optimistic!) it has a lot to live up to 🙂

To Have and to Hold is the third in the series, but it would work well as a standalone. The heroes and heroines from books 1 and 2 (Hold on Tight and  Can’t Hold Back) do play small roles, but if you haven’t read their stories yet you won’t be at too much of a disadvantage.

But your TBR will probably grow by at least 2 more.

New Release Review! ALMOST FOREVER by Kathy Clark (Austin Heroes #2)

Almost Forever: An Austin Heroes Novel
by Kathy Clark

 

Synopsis:

A cold case leads to blazing-hot temptation in this novel of romantic suspense from bestselling author Kathy Clark. For readers of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, Almost Forever pairs a rugged lawman with a woman who may just be a murderer.

Justin Archer is a Texas Ranger through and through, a loyal man devoted to the dangerous job he loves. But when the grisly discovery of a skeleton in a local vineyard turns an old missing-persons case into a vicious homicide, Justin finds that the toughest challenge of his professional career will be keeping his hands off his chief suspect: the dead man’s beautiful, young trophy wife. Did Lori Roberts kill for vast material gain? The only thing Justin knows for sure is that their chemistry is instantaneous—and overpowering.

Lori worked hard to build a new life for herself and her daughter. She turned her husband’s struggling vineyard into a thriving enterprise, and now she stands to lose it all over something that happened eight years ago. Justin could lock her up and throw away the key, but Lori desperately wants to trust him. More than that, she wants to let him into her wounded heart. Because Lori’s been running from the past for a long time . . . and she’s ready to start living for the future.

 

Review:

I really liked the mystery in this story–dead man’s remains are found just beyond the borders of his own property 8 years after he is believed to have left his wife and daughter. How did he end up in that shallow grave? Why is he naked? Where are his custom-made boots, and why is he missing a finger? What’s up with the pricey diamond ring found near the body? His vineyard had been on the verge of bankruptcy when he left–how did his wife manage to renovate and turn the property around since then? I appreciated that the culprit isn’t obvious–there is one major clue about halfway through the novel, but it wouldn’t have been too hard to miss it if you weren’t paying attention. When all is revealed, the how and the why are as satisfying as the resolution. Mystery portion of the story? A solid 4 stars.

There’s suspense added in too–there’s a definite threat to Lori and her daughter throughout the book that may or may not be related to the mystery of her husband’s death. Once you know what happened to Mark, it’s relatively clear what’s going on on this front; though this part overall is a tad bit more far-fetched than the mystery itself. Suspense portion? About 3 stars.

Finally, the romance. Though I liked both Lori and Justin, the Texas Ranger who’s originally assigned to the case, their romance was definitely a case of insta-love. I wanted to believe in their romance, but ultimately it just didn’t quite work. There was a whole lot of telling us how much they cared about each other, but not enough showing. It didn’t feel like a romance worth risking his job over, as much as I wanted to believe it was. So…the romance? Another 3 stars.

This was my first book by Kathy Clark. It’s the second in her Austin Heroes series, but worked just fine as a standalone. Would I read more from her/from this series? Yes, I think so. I did like many of the characters (Justin’s family–especially his Grammy–were particular favorites) and there were some truly funny parts (like this one, from Lori’s POV:

Was it inappropriate to toast to finding out her husband was dead? There was still the matter of his being found naked and the other questionable circumstances surrounding his death. Had a jealous husband caught Mark in bed with his wife and beat the sh*t out of him? Definitely worth toasting. Or had he been attacked, stripped, and tortured before he was murdered? Not appropriate for toasting.

Okay, so it’s a black humor. But still funny).

So…yes, I’d read something from Ms. Clark in the future. Though not everything here worked for me, I’m glad I took the time to give Almost Forever a try.

Rating: 3 1/2 stars / C+

 Henry is determined to make the only woman who captured his heart his wife.
ONLY AN EARL WILL DO
To Marry a Rogue #1
Tamara Gill
Releasing July 25th, 2016
Entangled Select Historical
The reigning queen of London society, Lady Elizabeth Worthingham, has her future set out for her. Marry well, and marry without love. An easy promise to make and one she owed her family after her near ruinous past that threatened them all. And the rakish scoundrel Henry Andrews, Earl of Muir whose inability to act a gentleman when she needed one most would one day pay for his treachery.
Returning to England after three years abroad, Henry is determined to make the only woman who captured his heart his wife. But the icy reception he receives from Elizabeth is colder than his home in the Scottish highlands. As past hurts surface and deception runs as thick as blood, so too does a love that will overcome all obstacles, unless a nameless foe, determined with his own path, gets his way and their love never sees the light of day…

Excerpt-Banner

Elizabeth hid a repulsed shudder over Lord Riddledale, who stood pompous and proud across the floor, the ever-present scowl on his face no surprise. No doubt her stepping out with another gentleman other than himself had put him out of countenance. She turned back to her sister. “I cannot summon any remorse for annoying Riddledale. As for Lord Dean, I’ll be sorry to hurt him, but no, I will not marry him no matter how much his heart breaks over my decision.”

“Could your feelings change in time, do you believe?” Victoria asked.

“No.”

“No?”

Elizabeth shook her head. “No.”

“Why?”

She swallowed the familiar lump which formed in her throat every time she thought of him, the man she refused to name, even in her own thoughts. “I’m not the loving kind. I don’t believe it’s healthy to rely on such feeble unstable emotions when someone is entering the marriage state. Men and their need to be adored, looked up to in awe, can go hang. Lord Newland’s name protects me now. I have no need to marry again.”

Victoria threw her a dubious look. “I believe there is nothing purer and good than love, especially if you are fortunate enough to have it in a marriage.” Her sister sighed, the sound tinged with sadness. “You promised Papa you would try.”

“I am well aware of what I promised Papa, but he did not stipulate marriage is what I should try. I’m friendly and affable. That is enough.”

 

Tamara Gill is an Australian author who grew up in an old mining town in country South Australia, where her love of history was formed. So much so, she made her darling husband travel to the UK for their honeymoon, where she dragged him from one historical monument and castle to another. A mother of three, her two little gentlemen in the making, a future lady (she hopes) and a part-time job keep her busy in the real world, but whenever she gets a moment’s peace she loves to write romance novels in an array of genres, including regency, medieval and time travel. Tamara loves hearing from readers and writers alike. You can contact her through her

New Release Review! HOT ON HIS HEELS by Margo Bond Collins (What Happens in Vegas #16)

Hot On His Heels
by Margo Bond Collins

Synopsis:

He’s exactly who she’s looking for…she just doesn’t know it yet.

Sadie Quinn is at the romance readers’ convention for one reason only: to find editor Jocelyn Dellarivier. Which she could do if she didn’t keep running into the most frustrating, gorgeous man ever. To make matters worse, she just won a contest and a date with him is the prize.

Jake Blaine could kill his boss for rigging the contest, but now he’s face to face with the one woman who could expose his alter ego. He’s not about to leave, but he can’t tell Sadie he’s the editor she’s looking for. But even though he’s playing with fire, Jake can’t seem to stay away. And after a night with the raven-haired beauty, he’s not sure he wants to…

 

Review:

A cute, fluffy read!

Though the story dragged a bit at parts (Jake’s obsessing about his brother’s career and Sophie’s fixation on her research both started to feel overdone) there were some really cute, really memorable parts throughout. The ending in particular, was beyond fantastic.

I loved Sophie’s habit of reciting literary quotes pretty much 24/7, and the way in which Jake ends up using the absolute perfect one to make his grand gesture at the end. Actually, that scene more than makes up for a whole lot of what came before it–I think I’ve re-read that part at least three times already. And showed it to Mini Moe #2, who appreciated it almost as much as her mother did. (I was just super-psyched that she identified it right away–especially since she’s neither read the book nor seen any of the movie versions–yet. Obviously, I am raising that girl right!)

A solid addition to a fun series!

Wolf Betrayed Cover v72dpi

About WOLF BETRAYED (releases October 11th):

The Talon Pack continues with the daughter of a traitor, the man who can never be her lover, and another man she should never want…her enemy.

Charlotte Jamenson was born to the Pack that threatened the world, but grew up in the one that saved it. She’s spent her entire life repenting for lies and faults that were never hers to bear. When she falls for her best friend, Bram Devlin, she thinks she’s finally found forgiveness for the blood in her veins; only a mating bond never came.

Bram knows there’s something missing within his mating with Charlotte, but there’s nothing he can do about it. Their Pack is in danger, and it’s his duty to protect their Alpha—even if it means sacrificing his life. When he’s put in charge of protecting a new member of the Talon Pack, he realizes he and Charlotte may just have a chance at something more than heartache.

Shane Bruins sacrificed his life and his future to protect the Packs from the men he worked for. Now, thanks to circumstances beyond his control, he’s not quite who he was before, and his life is on the line yet again. Only this time, he isn’t alone, and the two wolves in his path might be the only things that can calm the beast inside.

The war isn’t coming, it’s here, and the Talon Pack will have to rely on three souls who know they aren’t what each other wants—but exactly what they need—to win.

About Carrie Ann Ryan:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

Wild About Her Wingman by Robin Bielman
About the Book:
Playing it safe never felt so risky.
Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…
As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

About the Author:

When not attached to her laptop, USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Bielman can almost always be found with her nose in a book. A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts all of her story ideas.
She loves to go on adventures, and has skydived, scuba dived, parasailed, gotten lost in the wilderness (and only suffered a gazillion bug bites for it) hiked to waterfalls, and swam with dolphins. In her spare time she also likes to put her treadmill to good use while watching her favorite TV shows, take hikes with her hubby, indulge her sweet tooth, and play sock tug of war with her cute, but sometimes naughty dog, Harry.
She dreams of traveling to faraway places and loves to connect with readers. Keep in touch and sign up for her newsletter on her website at http://robinbielman.com.
