This was a really good book. It touched on a few different things not usually seen in a romance book. It was well written and thought out. I recommend it very highly.

Ainslie was a single mother who was starting her life over after surviving a corrupt husband who stole millions of friends and others money. She moved to protect her three children so they could lead a normal life.

Dave  was the school principal and at first thought Ainslie as a bad waitress and very clumsy. Until he met her at his school regarding her son. One look into her eyes and seeing her smile and he was a goner. He finally was able to get her to go out with him . And the more he got to know her the closer they became and fell in love. He came to love her three children as his own and wanted to protect them from all hurt the same as he wanted to protect Ainslie.

But her children got into some trouble at school or with other students. Her oldest daughter got into the wrong crowd and she dated the star player on the football team. When he tried to basically hurt her and force her to have sex her, brother went to the school and hit  him. The football player had his friends help  beat up Rourk ,the brother , and hurt him very bad.

This book brooch’s on  a lot of topics. Such as a young teenage boy letting those he loves know he’s gay, students being bullies both in school and by phone and internet. Love and the way single mothers have to be sure the man they love can be accepting of her children.

Areally good read for all.

A dramatic suspense filled book. It has a great romantic theme as well. Well written and thought out suspense. The story is told very well .

Brooke was with some friends when the boat her friends were on exploded. Both her friends we in critical condition or serious condition from the explosion.Brooke was also hurt when someone came to her boat and gave her something to knock her out.

Garrett was a police officer  on the case trying to find out exactly what happened. There was more to all this than met the eye. It was obvious someone had meant to hurt them all.

When talking to Brooke  with the main officers they found out that they had found a metal box with red human hair flowing out of the box.

Garrett was also trying to find his niece who had vanished two months before meeting Brooke.

While doing underwater diving to find the box again,and also attempted murder on both her friends and herself,Brooke and Garrett started falling in love.

Brooke had an artificial leg,but to Garrett it never mattered. But to Brooke it did in a way. She wanted independence and kept trying to say she needed no protection. Garrett of coarse  wanted to protect her.

When they found the box again the threat to Brooke and her friends became even more intense a the hunt for the threat became more intense when the box was brought up.

I very much recommend this book to all types of readers. No matter your genre preference you will enjoy this book.

Alexandrea Taylor is a romance writer. At a conference she’s asked by her editor to write erotica. Alex doesn’t think she knows how. She certainly can’t imagine how to begin when she can’t even say certain words. Her editor gives her a deck of cards to loosen her up some and help her imagination along.

Then comes Zack O’Connor, Mr. Luscious. Zack, a long time friend is thee alpha male, the one man on which Alex has based her every hero.

Zack, rugged, gorgeous cowboy, turns heads to be sure, but Zack isn’t interested in being a boy toy. He wants one woman, has wanted her for as long as he can remember.

Platonic friends Alex and Zack are sharing a room. Alex can let her hair down with this guy. She tells him her problem. There’s big money in store, but how is she supposed to write up an erotic outline, when she hasn’t got a clue as to where to start. Yes, she has these cards, but…

Zack is willing to help out his friend and Alex agrees that a few days of sex play should do the trick. They are both adults and it’s only sex, after all. What could go wrong?

Ms. Selwyn has the crowds of women at the conference breathless as they watch this man either walk through their midst or work a horse. Equally she leaves the reader as breathless as the fantasy carries them through a playful romp packed full of delicious sexual fun.

A page turner of steamy, sex runs through much of the story and causes the reader some breathless moments as we watch two people fall in love. You won’t be sorry if you pick up this one up. One question. Where the heck can I find this guy?
