The Locke Brothers Book 1

by Twi J Bryant

Genre: Contemporary Fiction Love Story

When Vanessa loses Sebastian to rehab once again, she finds passion in the most unexpected person.
Vanessa and Sebastian have been best friends forever, but they’re not just friends, they’re friends with benefits. This arrangement has never been a problem, but Vanessa starts to long for more. How much longer can she stand the empty bed and a note on the bedside table the morning after?
When Sebastian, a sexy drummer with a bad boy attitude, falls back into his bad habits, Vanessa watches him go to rehab with a broken heart, again. But the lead singer of Sebastian’s band, Jessie, is ready to cheer her up. Vanessa needed a shoulder to cry on; instead, she found a dom she can’t help but want to please. Jessie ignites her body in ways she’s never imagined and slowly inches his way into her heart.
Vanessa didn’t want to fall in love, especially with a man so different from Sebastian, but sometimes the heart wants what it wants.
The only problem is, Jessie is Sebastian’s younger brother.

Faced with a life or death decision while Jessie is already running for the hills, she turns to the one friend who has always been there for her, Sebastian.

This is actually two authors writing together!
J. Bryant lives in a zoo. Not really, but come over at dinner time and you’ll think you’ve stepped right into one between the teenagers and twins. She started writing as a creative way of getting her frustrations out and never expected anyone to read the madness that she jotted down. Then she partnered with Twi, who encouraged her to start a tumblr account and post the stories she’d written. HUGE MISTAKE! Now, we’re sitting by the phone waiting on Ellen’s call to invite us on her show. In the meantime she’ll be cheering on her beloved Saints (ehhhm. Ellen, we’re practically family) football team from where she resides in Louisiana!
Twi is a devoted mother and wife who wasn’t that good at cooking to begin with so she doesn’t feel guilty when she orders dinner in so she has time to write. Her love of sticky notes and all office supplies keeps her organized while her house slowly dissolves into madness during writing jags with her lobster, J. Bryant. (It’s a Friends reference. Look it up.) She lives in Phoenix, AZ, where it is too hot to do anything outside, so she spends most of her free time on her computer or playing Destiny 2 with friends. Writing is her favorite creative outlet.

A lifelong resident of northern New Jersey, Dawn Altieri has been scribbling stories practically since birth. After reaching a milestone birthday (she won’t say which one), she figured it was about time she took a shot at writing professionally.
With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them. When she’s not curled up on the sofa with her laptop, her latest story, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), she can be found volunteering in the world of animal rescue. To keep a roof over her head, she works in the printing industry as a graphic production artist. She shares her home with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of rescued fur-babies.

My Thoughts:

Reviewed August 17, 2019

Who knew a Gothic romance could include humor?
That is certainly true with this collection. I never suspected that Erica Ridley could write such dark romantic titles and include a humorous side.
This set is a re-worked and re-released set of four earlier works by this wonderful author and they are not to be missed by fans of Erica Ridley books.

I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.

I received a complimentary copy of all four books in this series as a combined set. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

When grief over her grandfather’s death leads to several catastrophic decisions, Caila gets one final chance to prove herself: shut down an unprofitable factory in a small Southern town. But as soon as she arrives in Bradleton, she meets one outsized problem: the town’s gorgeous mayor.
Wyatt Bradley isn’t thrilled about his nickname, Mayor McHottie. He’s even less happy to learn that his town might be losing its biggest employer. If he has to, he’ll use some sneaky tactics to get Caila on his side. Yet even as he’s hoping she’ll fall for Bradleton, he’s falling too—right into a combustible affair that shakes them both with its intensity.
Two stubborn people, torn between loyalty, ambition, and attraction. But when you’re willing to give it your all, there’s no limit to how far love can take you…

Highlander Ronan Maclaren must marry, but he’s in no particular hurry. He’s perfectly happy as the laird of his clan, running the Maclaren Whisky Distillery, and besides, he just hasn’t found the right woman.

Lady Imogen Kinley has cleverly avoided wedlock for years. Men, she has learned from painful experience, are not to be trusted. Determined to remain independent, she takes an indecent amount of pleasure in making herself as unattractive to potential suitors as possible.

When desperate measures are taken by their parents and a betrothal contract is signed, it’s loathing at first sight. They each vow to make the other cry off—by any means necessary. But what starts out as a battle of wits…quickly dissolves into a battle of wills.

Each book in the Tartans & Titans series is STANDALONE:

* Sweet Home Highlander
* A Lord for the Lass
* What a Scot Wants

My Thoughts:

Highlander Ronan Maclaren must marry, but he’s in no particular hurry. He’s perfectly happy as the laird of his clan, running the Maclaren Whisky Distillery.

Lady Imogen Kinley has cleverly avoided wedlock for years. Men, she has learned from painful experience, are not to be trusted. Determined to remain independent, she takes an indecent amount of pleasure in making herself as unattractive to potential suitors as possible.

Desperate measures are taken by their parents and unbeknownst to Ronan and Imogen a betrothal contract is signed, They each vow to make the other cry off—by any means necessary. But what starts out as a battle of wits…quickly dissolves into a battle of wills. They are both very serious about their life as it is and neither wants anything to change, especially if it’s not their idea.

Each book in the Tartans & Titans series is written as a standalone but believe me when I say once you’ve read one you will want to read them all.
This writing duo has done it again. The book is seamlessly written with no gaps in the writing styles. I have read and enjoyed each book in this standalone series.
This book has it’s serious moments but mostly it had me laughing out loud. I found myself reading into the wee hours just to find out what would happen next. It is an historical romance with a bit of the Romantic Comedy.
I loved the characters and even though some of them do go back to previous titles it will just make you want more. You will never be at a loss.
I gave this book a solid 5 of 5 stars. Believe me when I say if I could have given it more I would have.
I received this complimentary copy from the publisher to read. All thoughts are my own I I read and reviewed this book voluntarily.

The Beast of Bestwick CoverBeauty and the Beast meets Taming of the Shrew in this laugh-out-loud and heartfelt Regency romance.

Lord Nathaniel Harte, the disagreeable Duke of Beswick, spends his days smashing porcelain, antagonizing his servants, and snarling at anyone who gets too close. With a ruined face like his, it’s hard to like much about the world. Especially smart-mouthed harpies—with lips better suited to kissing than speaking—who brave his castle with indecent proposals.

But Lady Astrid Everleigh will stop at nothing to see her younger sister safe from a notorious scoundrel, even if it means offering herself up on a silver platter to the forbidding Beast of Beswick himself. And by offer, she means what no highborn lady of sound and sensible mind would ever dream of—a tender of marriage with her as his bride.

My Thoughts:

Beauty and the Beast meets Taming of the Shrew in this laugh-out-loud and heartfelt Regency romance.
I couldn’t put this one down. I have read this author’s work before but as a writing duo.
This wonderfully written take on Beauty and the Beast was masterfully told with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure. I was totally engrossed in this book. The characters are excellent and the plot never bogged down.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars only because there was not enough mystery about what would happen. It was just too predictable.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

The promise of true love rolls across the Highland hills in this rich collection of Scottish first in series romance novels from four USA Today bestselling authors! Whether from a noble Scot, a fierce Highlander, a rebel warrior, or a Scottish reiver the magnificent vistas of Scotland provide the perfect backdrop for unforgettable romance!

 

THE HIGHLANDER’S REWARD by Eliza Knight:

The Highlander's RewardWhen a lady arrives in Stirling to make good on a dreaded betrothal, she is thrown into the midst of a full battle between the Scots and the English. Besieged by rebels, she is whisked from her horse by a Highland warrior who promises her safety. But when he kisses her she fears she’s more in danger of losing herself.

 


MARIN’S PROMISE by Madeline Martin:

Marin's PromiseIn order to save his sister from certain death, a Scottish reiver must take an English castle by force. But its lady will defend it and her family at any cost, even if it means killing the usurper. In a world where desperation and love dictate the lives of many, a simple promise can change the tide of favor and open the door to pleasure and danger alike.


MY FIERCE HIGHLANDER by Vonda Sinclair:

51jdzxqrsal__sx327_bo1204203200_Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans–her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family?

Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her–give up her son or the man she loves.

My Thoughts:

“Wow!
I love reading about Highlanders! When I read My Fierce Highlander by Vonda Sinclair, I fell in love with Laird Alasdair MacGrath almost at once. I wanted to be the one who rescued him.
This book is filled with adventure, danger, romance, fighting and the Highlands. What more can a Highland fan ask for!
I Loved it and Vonda Sinclair immediately became a go to author in this genre.


OUTLAW KING by Julie Johnstone:

Outlaw King CoverA deadly game of war entangles them. Deception endangers them. Only an impossible love can save them.

When headstrong Elizabeth de Burgh’s evil father threatens to kill her beloved cousin unless she seduces his enemy Robert the Bruce, she begrudgingly agrees. But as she grows close to the arrogant leader of the Scottish rebellion whose savage good looks whisper of pleasure, she discovers that behind Robert’s facade of coldhearted traitor lies a noble fighter who will risk all for the freedom of his country. Now, she can no longer imagine aiding in Robert’s destruction. But does she have a choice?

Fierce Scottish warrior Robert the Bruce would do anything to release his country from English rule and claim his rightful throne. Enemies on both sides surround him, however, and Robert must dance a dangerous line between truth and duplicity. One misstep could topple his nation and cost him his life. Yet one irresistible woman tempts him—and jeopardizes his mission—as no other ever has. Robert is in no position to entangle himself with the enemy, especially one who may be plotting his defeat, but the feisty, determined, blue-eyed beauty ignites a longing in Robert that he has never known. But is she his biggest threat or greatest source of strength?

Bound by duty and honor but ensnared by uncontainable desire, Robert and Elizabeth must decide how much they are willing to sacrifice for the one thing they thought they’d never find—extraordinary love.

My Thoughts:

This book is a well written imagining of what happened with the well known historical figure, Robert The Bruce. Despite the violence and treachery of the times anything written about this figure, whether fact or fiction has always fascinated me.
I was completely drawn in by this extraordinary tale of love and deceit. The plot is well drawn out and the characters are entrancing. This is a not to be missed book by Ms. Johnstone.
Outlaw King can easily be read as a standalone historical romance.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. There is a palpable heat between hero and heroine.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
I also pre-ordered a copy of this title in Kindle Format before receiving the ARC.
