This is our Top Picks post. In it, I highlight books that take my fancy. This could be because of the author name on the front, the blurb or even the cover (sometimes, that’s all it takes). Please be aware of our new policies regarding books which means that only authors I would spend my money on will appear on here.
This weeks Top Picks are….
Status on TR list : I adore this series …. it is one of the best PNR of the moment. I recommend the entire series and it is top of the TR list
HELL HATH NO FURY . . .
For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.
LIKE AN ANGEL SCORNED
Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she’s the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there’s no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won’t find her . .

Camped out at a resort bar in Fiji, CIA operative Ward Bennett may look like he’s on vacation but he’s really deep undercover, hunting a dictator on the run. Ward may be on the job, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for the sexy female bartender. That is, until she drugs him.
When Tasha Gregory discovers the hottie on the barstool isn’t who he pretends to be, her MI6 training kicks into gear, and she has no choice but to take him out. Problem is, Ward’s not an easy man to put down for long. More than once, his interference almost blows her surveillance operation—and her ability to keep her heart to herself.
As the situation heats up, these two must decide whether they can trust one another—and quick. Working together might just make everyone safer, but getting close enough for comfort … might just get them killed.
Status on TR List : I bave an odd relationship with this series but I can’t seem to stop reading. I will read.
NO SAD SONGS HERE, DARLIN’
Country music princess Starlet Brubaker has a sweet tooth for moon pies and cowboys: both are yummy-and you can never have just one. Now Beckett Cates may not be a cowboy, but he certainly has the heart, soul-and body-to whet her appetite. He’s a sexy ex-Marine with a touch hotter than the scorching Texas sun and arms strong enough to catch her when she lands into trouble.
Playing bodyguard to America’s sweetheart isn’t easy for Beckett. But falling for her sure is. Unfortunately, Starlet has a reputation for keeping a guy or two wrapped around her finger and Beckett refuses to be anybody’s backup. So now it’s up to Starlet to prove that she’s put her cowboy-crazy days behind her. Otherwise, she’ll be singing solo instead of living in harmony with the man who’s loved her even before her fame and fortune.
Status on TR List : I am enjoying this line and I love Amanda Ulsen’s alter ego (Miranda Baker) and so this is totally on the list!
A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
He’s every fantasy she’s ever had… Betsy Mouton knows that easy doesn’t last forever. She’s working her butt off to launch the Last Call Café so her family can leave the New Orleans bar business—and its heartaches—behind forever. That is, until the hottest one-night-stand of her life shows up next door, twice as uncompromising and two million times hotter, offering to buy the bar and send the Moutons to Easy Street.
Hotelier Quinton James has never forgotten the unbelievably hot night he and Betsy shared. Never forgotten how beautifully she submitted to him, or how he found the only peace he’s ever known in her arms. Now that Betsy is the only thing standing in the way of his new hotel, she’s the one in control.
But there’s more at stake than her cafe or laying their past to rest—Quin wants a future. With her. All he has to do is convince her…one sensual command at a time.
Status on TR List : She seems to have a book out every other week but I never get bored. Another on the TR list
Damn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade.
No way was he wearing damned tinsel in his antlers.
Like hell was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh.
But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.
Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl.
If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games. As Crystal and Kyle butt heads—and lips—they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.
Status on TR List : I always enjoy Cari Quinn’s erotic romance and this one has a Virgin hero …. On the list!
He’s offering her his cherry, any way she likes it…
Afternoon Delight, Book 2
Kim O’Halloran is on a self-enforced hiatus from dating younger men. Until her erotic art class instructor puts a sexy, intriguing male model in front of her sketch pad.
Suddenly celibacy’s starting to seem like a really bad idea. Better—or worse—yet, she discovers the man she’s lusting over isn’t just her junior. He’s a virgin. And he’s asking her to corrupt him a time or two. Or fifty. For starters.
Michael Montgomery may only be in his mid-twenties, but he knows what and who he wants. Kim and her wicked ways are a perfect cure for the sexual frustration and bone-deep loneliness he’s put up with for way too long.
The timing in both their lives is all wrong to be pushing past their boundaries—in the bed, on the couch or against the car. Yet Kim finds herself enjoying teaching him how to please a woman…and Michael finds himself willing to use every trick she knows to persuade his commitment-phobic lover to change her mind about love.
Warning: This book contains a virgin hero who learns quick—and hard—and a heroine who doesn’t mind getting filthy during a lesson. Oh, and make sure to watch out for the dirty talking…bird.
