Review: Montana Darling by Debra Salonen

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Montana is a popular setting for romances lately.  While I would love to visit in summer, a winter in the state, with the snow and the cold and the wind, holds no appeal for me.  Therefore, I choose to complete my travels to the 41st state through books.  Sorry, large, northern state, but Michigan winters are far too long for my liking; I hate to think what a Montana winter would be like!

Spotlight and Giveaway: The Rebel of Copper Creek by R C Ryan

RC Ryan dropped by the virtual offices to share a Top 5 list.  I also have an excerpt from her latest release The Rebel of Copper Creek, and a giveaway for you to enter.  Enjoy!

Top 5 reasons why are cowboys such appealing heroes?

Rugged, strong, silent men are so appealing.

They live on the land, rather than in glass and steel cities.

They’re respectful of women and children.

They’re seen as fearless, fierce protectors.

And hey, they’re sexy cowboys. That says it all.

About THE REBEL OF COPPER CREEK:

A love worth fighting for . . .

The last thing widow Juliet Grayson needs is a man in her life. Between caring for her two young sons and maintaining her husband’s ranch, her hands are more than full. Then she meets Griff Warren. With his quiet strength and his easy way with her boys, she’s tempted to trust him. But if there’s anything she’s learned, it’s that love only leads to heartbreak. Former Marine Griff Warren never thought he’d settle down. Rebellious and proud, he’s always been on his own . . . until the father he never knew he had died, leaving him with land that is his legacy and brothers to share the load. He doesn’t need more than that. But Juliet touches something deep inside him-and he wants nothing more than to protect her and her sons. Now if only he can convince her to take a second chance at true love.

Review: Deep Betrayal by Anne Greenwood Brown

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I had to wait a long time for the library to get a copy of Deep Betrayal, so there has been a huge time gap since I read Lies Beneath.  When I first started reading this, the plot details were a little fuzzy, but things cleared up relatively quickly.  I really enjoy this series, and I was delighted when Deep Betrayal did NOT end on a cliffhanger!  Win for the reader!  I hate cliffhangers, with only love triangles scoring higher on my list of pet peeves.  There’s no hint of that here, either, with Lily and Calder deeply involved with each other for the entire book.  That’s not to say they didn’t have their disagreements, but another guy was never dangled into the reader’s face in an effort to force some tension into the plot.  Double yay!
