When the author pitched a review of The Return of the Rebel, I was happy to accept. I love almost all Harlequin imprints, but with my other review commitments, I don’t often find the time to read one unless there is some outside pressure applied (a blog tour or a direct author request). I didn’t even need to know plot details beyond the primary trope, which is one of my favorites. For some reason, carrying a torch for your older brother’s best friend always pushes the right buttons for me. Adding in Jax’s understandable anxiety for the future, and you have a gripping read. I wish there had either been more attention given to his trial, or that that plot thread hadn’t been included at all. There’s actually a lot going on in the book, and I felt that the trial was short-changed, but that is a minor quibble. Read more
I jumped all over this book for two reasons; it features a quarterback hero, and it’s a release under Harlequin’s Kimani imprint. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading anything under this imprint, and since I am a sucker for all things Harlequin, I started hopping up and down with my arm in the air, shouting, “Oh, pick me! Pick me to read this one!” Read more

Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms is kind of an angsty read. Single mom Kate is struggling to pay the medical expenses for her young daughter, who is suffering from a brain tumor. Already in debt up to her ears, she’s finally found a surgeon willing to perform the operation that may save Molly’s life. The only catch? It’s an experimental procedure, and her insurance company won’t cover any of the costs. Now Kate has to come up with a down payment for the hospital charges, or they won’t allow the doctor to perform the operation. At least the guy is being decent enough to waive his fees…. Read more
