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.

This book was very good in my opinion .It is well written with a wonderful story line. That is what I look for the most. I like something more than sex in my books. This book has that for me. I loved the cover as well. It is a great visual for me for getting to see the places I am reading about. I love the sex scenes. They are not extremely graphic but you get the point. This book is just a great read if you love futuristic books !

I t has love, traveling through time gates, great romance and love scenes. It let’s you feel what the writer conveyed. It has a child’s wide eyed amazement when he discovers the first time that he is like his hero’s and will someday  take a place in their responsibility .

Two couple have and discover love and full acceptance. Through mistakes made as partners as well as lovers. And it has very good adversity scenes in it.

Sophie Hartlend likes to play with fire.

The reckless and beautiful Miss Sophie has spent her young life doing whatever she pleases without much consequence—except for that one night when passions went too far with the maddeningly handsome Lord Rayburn.

Months after their encounter, Sophie’s newfound infatuation with gambling has landed her in trouble, threatening her precious independence. Lord Rayburn gallantly offers to help, but he insists the wild Miss Sophie do things his way. Once again they find themselves in a battle of wills, attracted but with opposing views.

Will Sophie relent when she discovers she must lay down all her cards in order to win Lord Rayburn’s heart?

Lively characters and great world-building skills make this book a great one. It’s a spicy and funny romp through history. I enjoyed it very much. My only complaint is that it was too short, because when it ended, I wanted more.

As the Season in London comes to a close, Laura finds herself in a predicament. The one man she is attracted to has neglected to make an offer for her, and her family wants her to accept the proposal of a fortune-hunter. Determined not to let propriety stand in the way of her future happiness, she resorts to outrageous behavior to escape the damp grasp of the wrong man—and to discover true love in the arms of another.

This very cute and somewhat naughty story gave this reviewer a number of giggles. I read historical romance wondering how women survived in such a time where you weren’t allowed to speak your mind.I imagine this was it. Women rebelled in their own minds, and the most brave actually spoke. Ms. Corwin has a great sense of character, and I would certainly recommend this book for the fantastic heroine. It’s a great short story.

I wasn’t as taken in with this story as I was with past historical romances I’ve read. I don’t like misunderstanding plot lines. I did like the sensuality of this story. Ms. Ritch has a good grasp of the sensual, and I found myself drawn into the story at a number of points. I really would like to read another book from this author to solidify my opinion of her work, but all in all, I’d recommend this shorty.
