I loved this book! It is well written. Has a great story. The people in the book are so much fun to watch getting to their love for each other even though it was not the way the hero wanted.

Grace was a town sheriff who used to work in a large city . She had solved a major murder and when her father died she became the sheriff of the small town she grew up in. And now there seemed to be a copy cat murder in her town.

Ian was with the FBI and he and Grace had worked together before and had loved before. And now history was repeating it’s self. But he would not give in to his feelings for Grace. To do so would and could hurt her in many ways.

Grace had another murder. It was so far following a murder she had just solved in another town. The killer was slashing the throats of his victims  and taking their blood. She couldn’t figure out how he took all the blood and never left a trace. The FBI had to be called in and to her anguish Ian , the man she loved and could not forget was one of the officers they had sent. Both couldn’t imagine how they would work together again.  But they had to. Ian could not stand to see her with another man,although he knew she had the right to have a new life. She didn’t want any other man but had to show him she could survive without him.

When Ian could take it no more he decided he had to tell her what was going on and what he was. Will she still love him or walk away. Will she even live to decide. But he had to tell her to save her, then he may have to walk away again.

I could not reveal more than this or I would have told you everything about this book. I so enjoyed this book and recommend it to every paranormal romance lover.

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.

      This book is so well written , I loved the cover also. It is sweet,fiesty,romantic,has good details for the 1900’s in Oklahoma. I loved that era in history.

Every man Max has tried to thrust into her life he finds so much wrong with.  Callie cannot understand why when Max asks her to meet him there are always other men along.

Christmas is near. Callie has baskets to deliver to the poor for her school class. Even though Max told her it was not seemly or woman like for her to do so. Now comes the fun. Because Max’s plans are in for a major change.

This is just such a nice read. Any romance reader will love it . There are great references for the 1900’s and what woman went thru at times.

Red Leather Reunion by Karen Bostrom

BLURB: Ron Granger never expected his twenty-fifth high school reunion to bring his heart’s desire one step closer to reality. But when Jane Hunter shows up unexpectedly—in a hot red leather dress, no less—Ron wonders if he’ll finally get a second chance to tell her how he feels.

Local TV reporter Jane Hunter never wanted to attend another Summerville High School reunion—not after the explosive split with her ex-husband twenty years ago. But the opportunity to defuse his mean-spirited campaign to smear her is too enticing to miss. Besides, she’s after something more important than compliments and envy in her killer red dress—it’s another man from her past she’s hoping to dazzle.

Unrequited love, resentment, and vengeance create a steamy mix—will the lives of these three estranged friends ever be the same?

REVIEW: Holy WOW Batman! It’s amazing how much heat you can create without actually having sex. Just Jane’s description and manners showed greatly how good of an author that Ms. Bostrom is. Each move, word, and glance had a reason and design. There was no fluff to dig through and nothing that I have to guess about. I loved every second of this book and can’t wait to get my hands on another book by Karen Bostrom.
