Ten Ways To Be Adored When Landing A Lord by Sarah MacLean

★★★★ This is the second book in the "Love by Numbers" series. I enjoyed this book, the characters Nicholas and Isabel were interesting and I felt they had good chemistry together. I wish I had got to read more about the secondary characters Lara and Rock. I look forward to the next in the series.

Here's The Blurb: 

“Lord Nicholas is a paragon of manhood. And his eyes, Dear Reader! So blue!” Pearls & Pelisses, June 1823

Since being named on of London’s “Lords to Land” by a popular ladies’ magazine, Nicholas St. John has been relentlessly pursued by every matrimony-minded female in the ton. So when an opportunity to escape fashionable society presents itself, he eagerly jumps—only to land in the path of the most determined, damnably delicious woman he’s ever met!

The daughter of a titled wastrel, Lady Isabel Townsend has too many secrets and too little money. Though used to taking care of herself quite handily, her father’s recent passing has left Isabel at sea and in need of outside help to protect her young brother’s birthright. The sinfully handsome, eminently eligible Lord Nicholas could be the very salvation she seeks.

But the lady must be wary and not do anything reckless…like falling madly, passionately in love.

Once In A Lifetime by Jill Shalvis

★★★★★ This book was just fantastic! ... Like I-neglected-my-kids-for-the-entire-morning-fantastic! I loved Ben! He was a surprise to me. From the other books I wouldn't have thought he'd become one of my favourite Lucky Harbour men! His caring nature was sweet, and yet he still kept his "Alpha" kinda qualities. I loved when the story would come from his point of view. Loved that he just wanted to spend time with Aubrey. And Aubrey was a good character match for Ben. She's strong, and the plot of her righting her wrongs was good. Though I always kinda wanted to re-live one of the scenes from the previous book from Ben and Aubrey's point of view.. I was immensely satisfied after reading this book. It didn't let me down! I think I will have to take a bit of a breather before reading another book.. cause my standards are so high right now! This is the ninth book in the "Lucky Harbor" series.

Here's the Blurb: 


After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniel tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he's back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she's not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future.

Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben - even though he has absolutely no idea what she's done . . .

Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?

Dangerous Highlander by Donna Grant

★★★★ This book was pretty good. I am intrigued to read about the other warriors. I did have a bit of trouble with them changing into their gods.. why I am not sure.. I love her dragon kings and have no problem with those shapeshifters... perhaps that part will grow on me. I will check out the rest in the series for sure.

Here's the Blurb:

The bold and passionate Lucan MacLeod--one of three brothers cursed by dark magic for eternity--is driven by desire for the one woman he dare not let himself possess...

He is magnificently strong--and dangerously seductive. One of the fiercest of his clan, Lucan MacLeod is a legend among warriors, inspiring fear in man and woman alike. For three hundred years, he has locked himself away from the world, hiding the vengeful god imprisoned in his soul. But then, a young lass caught in a raging storm awakens his deepest impulses...and darkest desires.

Cara doesn't believe the rumors about the MacLeod castle--until the majestic Highland warrior appears like a fiery vision in the storm, pulling her into his powerful arms, and into his world of magic and Druids. An epic war between good and evil is brewing. And Lucan must battle his all-consuming attraction for Cara--or surrender to the flames of a reckless, impossible love that threatens to destroy them both...

Darkest Flame by Donna Grant

★★★★★  I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I missed the Dragon Kings soo much, since I read the 3 novellas before this!! Denae was a strong kick-ass woman and Kellan was a wonderfully aloof male (well he wished he could stay that way). He was protective but also showed he had confidence in Denae to handle herself.

 I really want to read the next in the series, BUT I feel that I must read the Dark Sword/Warrior series first. I found out that this was a spin off from the warrior series, but didn't think it would matter too much. However during this book, I found too much was being given away and would potentially ruin/spoil some of the Warriors stories for me. I am one of those people who prefers to read books in order. So before I read the next in this book I will go read those!

Here's the Blurb: 

The Dark Kings have fought for centuries to preserve their dragon magic. But one of the most powerful warriors of his kind will be put to the ultimate test. Is he strong enough to resist his greatest temptations? Or will he be forced to surrender - body and soul?

Her beauty is a weapon

Denae Lacroix is a beautiful MI5 agent on a deadly mission. Sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the mysterious Dreagan Industries, she discovers too late that she’s been set up - as human bait. She is an irresistible lure for a man who has not seen or touched a woman for centuries. He is a man with a destiny - and a desire - that could destroy them both...

His passion is a curse...

It’s been twelve hundred years since Kellan has walked among humans - and there’s no denying the erotically charged attraction he feels for Denae. But as a Dragon King, he is sworn to protect his secrets. Yet the closer he gets to this smart, ravishing woman, the more her life is in danger. All it takes is one reckless kiss to unleash a flood of desire, the fury of dragons…and the fiercest enemy of all.
