Book Description

As pretense becomes painfully real, Nicole will have to choose between Stephan and the family he is driven to destroy. 

Stephan Andrade has been planning his revenge ever since Dominic Corisi unscrupulously took over his father’s company. With Corisi Enterprises gambling its reputation on the success of a new software network for China, Stephan finally has his chance to take back his legacy. Dominic’s younger sister, Nicole, asks Stephan for his help and provides him with an opportunity to exact his revenge on a personal level. 

It all goes smoothly until he falls in love. 

For Love or Legacy

Book Review

When I met Stephan Andrade in the first book in China I was prepared to hate him for the rest of the series! Then I find out how he went from an environmental activist to a reluctant businessman. You have got to admire the drive to succeed at all costs, even if it cut him off from who he really was.Trust Ruth to turn a villain in to a character you not only sympathize with but also begin to root for as the book progresses. 

Nicole Corisi got a raw deal all her life, but Stephan may finally be able to make it up to her. Loved the old ladies and their bikini advice. The psychology sprouting driver for the limo was absolutely fantastic!

Penalty Clause (The Sutton Capital Series Book 2) 


Chad came home from the military with a lot of emotional baggage, but his cousin and best friend made sure that he did not shut them out. Then he slid back into the civilian life, taking on the security of their company. He was a big, beefy man, who no one would take liberties with… no one but Jennie. She is frivolous, calls him all kinds of nicknames, and laughs when she gets a raise out of him. Chad loves it, and he loves her, but he also knows her deepest secret. He knows that she is never going to be able to love him back and so he keeps his distance.


Then the two of them end up undercover on an assignment in a honeymoon resort for two weeks. This changes their relationship for ever. Plus it puts them in danger as they discover a money laundering scheme. With crooked federal agents trying to kill them, Chad gets into action and makes them disappear off the grid. What no one expects is that Jennie is now pregnant with Chad’s baby. She is struggling with her own personal demons and can’t tell Chad, who manages to guess and feels his heart will break. Can they ever get past the crisis? Or will they die before things can be set right?

Book Description

Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex. 

Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn’t believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic. He’s both infuriating and intoxicating, a heady combination. Their trip to China revives a long forgotten side of Abby, but also reveals a threat to bring down Dominic’s company. With no time to explain her actions, Abby must either influence the outcome of his latest venture and save his company or accept her role as his mistress and leave his fate to chance. Does she love him enough to risk losing him for good?

 Book Review: 
 Ugly Love written by the author Colleen Hoover is a superb read. It keeps you wanting to finish the book off in one go. It keeps you wanting more. It depends on you how you feel while reading the book. A movie is going to come out soon and I just hope it does jusrice to the book coz I feel it was an interesting plot. Every love turns beautiful or ugly, it depends how far are you willing to go. How much is the juice worth the squeeze?!

Book Description

Book Review

Island Paradises aren't always what they seem 

Amy is a writer of fantasy books, who doesn't spend much time socializing. She lives in a little corner of the world where she fights her own personal demons (incidentally, also the name of her upcoming book.) The only social contact she seems to have had in the past three months has been with Jed.

Jed is gone from town as much as he is there, and he is not a person to make deep friendships. He prefers not to involve himself in deep, meaningful relationships and blames it on the nature of his job. Then after nearly eight years he breaks his own self imposed rules and lets himself get involved...with Amy.

Amy suffers from nightmares that Jed wants to help her resolve. It sees the two of them off on an adventure on a Hawaiian Island involving hired goons, knife wounds, inquisitive strangers, Russian agents, murder, cave divings and the possibility of finding a treasure in the form of emeralds.

I am not much of a swimmer, but the beautiful descriptions of the under sea world in the book seriously want me to get an opportunity to do some diving.

Book Description


Gabby's brain is like a human fish finder. It comes in handy when she wants to avoid people. Mostly men. They seem to like her a bit too much. It's lonely being different, but she's adapted to it. Really. She just wishes she knew why she is different, though.

In her search for answers, she discovers a hidden community of werewolves. She immerses herself in their culture, learning about their world until she meets Clay. He's unkempt, prone to mood swings, intense without saying a word, and he thinks Gabby is his.

It's going to take every trick she knows to convince Clay to go away, and every bit of willpower not to fall for him when she discovers the man beneath the rough exterior.

Delve into a riveting world of werewolves and young women with unexplained abilities, in Hope(less).

Hope(less) (Judgement of the Six Book 1)

Book Review


LOVED this story. How do you fall in love with a guy who refuses to speak with you!
This book was really unique in the fact that the male protagonist does not speak a word to his lady love all through the book. He still manages to get her to fall in love with him. Actions really do speak louder than words. 

Clay is a werewolf more used to spending time in "fur" . Gabby is a human who is uniquely compatible to become a werewolf mate. Sam is an elder who takes her under his wing. 

However Gabby wants more to life than going from one person's control to the next. She wants a normal human life, with college and fun, but at an introduction Clay and she discover the potential to be mates. 

Will Gabby ever claim Clay? Or will she run as fast as she can away from a mate? Find out as you read this story!

Book Description

 Relationship expert Jillian Jamison is in a bind. While her first book was a successful bestseller, her second tome tanked. Now, her publisher wants a spin on the third book, Married Love: Keeping Those Home Fires Burning, that's up close and personal. With financial pressures mounting and sole responsibility for her aging grandfather, Jill feels forced into wedlock in order to appease her publisher and keep her job. But it's only for a year, and she's devised a plan with her long-term friend. When Brad backs out due to problems with his real girlfriend Susan, Jill fears she'll be left standing alone at the altar. Then Brad offers a solution: Jill can marry the one man on earth she despises...his handsome best friend.

Hunter Delaney is a confirmed bachelor and that's how he likes it. When his best friend, Brad, approaches him with an unusual contract, he's determined to run for the hills, especially since the name on the paperwork is international celebrity Jillian Jamison, the woman who spurned him in high school. Hunter would rather do anything than spend twelve months of his life saddled with her. But he has a soft spot for Brad, who's in a predicament, so Hunter agrees to consider Brad's proposal. When Hunter learns he's getting passed over for a promotion because the family-oriented client only wants to work with someone who's married, this clinches the deal.

Hunter is "in" for as long as he can stand it. Jill is not thrilled with the arrangement either. But really, what choice does she have? Even if it has to look authentic on the outside, between her and Hunter it's just pretend. Besides, she reasons rationally, she's already got the dress...

Book Review

Jilly needs a husband, and her friend Brad is all set to play a fake one for a year for a share in the profits from Jilly's upcoming book. Then Brad's sweetheart Susan decided that is no way to get their relationship up and running. In a bind Brad gets his friend Hunter to stand in for him. Hunter is a heart breaker with a string of relationships behind him. Jilly doesn't want anything to do with her fake husband beyond a year.

It seems like they can have the ideal marriage for a year, clearly defined by a contract. Unfortunately things get complicated when Jilly actually starts to like Hunter, and Hunter has no idea exactly what these warm fuzzy feelings Jilly brings to his chest are! Between the two of them, they go from keeping up appearances to being deeply in love, but the path of true love never runs smooth.

Cassandra is a gossip rag reporter who brings out their story and perhaps strikes the death blow to their relationship...Loved the descriptions of the actual settling in of the much married couple together in the same house. The theory of a loving relationship runs very differently from the practical.

Ian knew that Andrea, with her assertive attitude and her penchant for stilettos, was some woman! But her vulnerable heart was on the run, so he'd have to prove that his love, unlike his running, had limitless endurance--and once he caught this swift beauty, he'd never let her go.

How will this dynamic duo end up handling their attraction? And can Andrea convince Ian that his daughter is more into art than sports? Find out in this lovely story.

Book Description

Rebecca Perris is on a dangerous quest to find her sister, but when she meets Aaron al-Rashid again, it's her heart that's at risk. For 10years Rebecca has lived with a lie that has destroyed her family, while trying to rebuild her family she finds herself facing the man she lied to, the man she believe betrayed her and her family. When Aaron sees Rebecca he's torn, full of feelings that were forbidden, only to discover within five minutes of seeing her that she had told him an unforgivable lie.

Book Review

 A single lie, born of young love and betrayal, has caused Rebecca’s family to be torn asunder. When her father has a heart attack, she decides its time to bring her sister Jennifer back into the family fold. Even if she has to travel to Cote de Diamant in Africa to do so. Although she is not sure where her sister is and has not seen her in ten years, she is determined to bring her home.

What she has not counted on is help, in the form of Aaron. Aaron has loved her since she was a sixteen year old and is annoyed that she lied to him. That she got married to someone else, that she was back in his life when she decided to visit his country. The desert sheikh dynamics works out quite believable in this romance.

Book Description

A cancer survivor who celebrates in silence…

Aaron Hawkins is a reporter whose assignment is to report on the Relay For Life fundraiser that Hannah Locke’s team is holding. But the news report turns into a love story he continues to pursue long after it’s gone to press. He doesn’t know loss the way Hannah does, but he knows fear and guilt, both of which resurface as he struggles with how to tell her that he survived the same cancer that took her husband.

A widow who remembers the man she lost…

Still heartbroken from the loss of her husband to cancer five years ago, Hannah has a simple formula for happiness that doesn't include falling in love. Her calculation stops adding up the moment she locks on to Aaron's mesmerizing eyes. Even the memories of the man she vowed to love forever can’t keep her heart from learning to love again. And Hannah finds that Aaron’s nice-guy charm and bad-boy sex appeal are only a small part of the man who brings happiness back into her life.

A fight back where two hearts battle to be together…

After Aaron confesses his love, Hannah has her own revelation and longs to surrender to the love she feels in heart. Then she discovers Aaron’s secret and the memories of what she already lost to cancer have her running from him. Her efforts to get back to her simple formula turn futile, though, because her heart already belongs to Aaron. When she finally admits her love, their hearts vow to fight back against cancer together.

Book Review

I read this book and cried. There is so much angst and love in here. The struggle to survive, the fight against the disease, the heartbreak of loss, the struggle to go on afterwards. Its just overwhelming. 
To deal with cancer, as a patient who survives or as a caregiver to someone who doesn’t is a life altering experience. In this book the author beautifully captures the agony, the guilt, the frustrations and the sheer beauty of life going on for the characters after cancer. A very touching read.

Book Review

The book started out with a normal poor gal with lots of land and big corporate guy looking to buy and build story. I thought it was going to be a normal chase through fall in love, fight with mom, kind of story, but I was pleasantly surprised when the story changed. Loved the twist as it was quite dark, and unexpected, but worked beautifully for the story. Don’t want to give away too much for those of you yet to read the book. I enjoyed it.

Book Description

When God offers the Devil a chance to redeem himself if he can make a woman fall in love with him, Lucifer is confident it’s a done deal…until he meets Christa Simms, the woman hand-picked by the Almighty to be a part of the cosmic wager.

If there’s one thing Christa knows, it’s how to recognize Mr. Wrong when she sees him. Between Christa’s sexy best friend, her blundering ex-boyfriend, and a pair of interfering demons with a stake in the outcome, the Devil has…a devil of a time…wooing the woman who can save his soul by stealing his heart.

Book Review

Well in most mythology the Devil is seen as the opposite of God. All things evil as opposed to all things good. However, what if the Devil is just a victim of some really long running bad press? What if all he really does is follow God’s instructions millennium after millennium ? And what if when he decides he wants to enter the kingdom of heaven again, God sets him a seemingly simple task, which he can’t begin to fathom?

The task? To actually make a specific, handpicked woman, fall in love with him! And that too after convincing her that he is really the Devil! Christa has no idea that she is a pawn in a much larger game which may or may not be the salvation of the Devil, but can she truly fall in love with him? Interesting philosophical question to debate. Is the Devil really evil, or is he just another humble worker toiling away at the task God set for him! Click Here to Buy - Sympathy for the Devil

Book Description

 Book Review


Abby considers her life in California normal and boring. She is not altogether excited at having to move to Arizona when her parents split up. Despite her misgivings, she manages to make three friends on the very first day of school. Pete is a cute boy who she hopes will be more, but Eli tries to warn her about Pete’s terrible temper. And the fact that Eli believes Pete has actually killed someone is not encouraging at all. Then there is Bailey, a bubbly girl who Abby gets along just fine with.

While life seems to have picked up fairly well, Abby suddenly finds herself in a life threatening adventure where only her protector can save her. She must come to terms with the fact that people around her, are not exactly what they seem to be. There is immortality, strange visions and unknown powers in the world that she knows nothing about. She must trust her best friend Eli to help ease her into this new, and often dangerous world.

Wonderful young adult read. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Only one point I must make, all the food described, specially breakfast meals, had me feeling hungry. Nice way to sneak in the importance of breakfast to a young readership!
