PROTECTED BY LOVE is a novella that kicks off the Montana Heat series by Jennifer Ryan. Filled with nonstop danger and undeniable heat Ryan offered up a page-turning romantic suspense. While it suffered from its length, I am excited to dive into book one.
LOST AND FOUND SISTERS by Jill Shalvis is the first book in her new Wildstone series. Set in the small coastal town of Wildstone, California Shalvis hooked with the story’s intriguing begins. Romance, growth, family, and acceptance filled the pages, and I am looking forward to returning to this charming town.
THE GIRL WITH THE MAKE-BELIEVE HUSBAND is the second book in Julia Quinn’s Rokeby’s series. It is a prequel series to the Bridgertons.

Quinn delivered a believable romance with characters you cannot help falling for.
Wahoo! Do I love the writing team that is Ilona Andrews? You’re darn tooting I do. It felt like we waited forever for WHITE HOT the second novel in the Hidden Legacy series, but oh man it was worth the wait! Intense and kick-ass with an excellent side of swoon!
BECAUSE OF MISS BRIDGERTON by Julia Quinn is the first novel in a prequel series to the Bridgeton series featuring the Rokesbys family. Filled with snark and hilarious banter that has become the signature mark of Quinn’s writing I delighted in the antics of Billie and George.
Avon Romance gifted me a copy of DANGEROUS GAMES by Tes Diamond, and as soon as I read the blurb, I knew I had to read it. Diamond delivered a gripping FBI thriller with strong characters and a touch of heat. I devoured this novel in one sitting and cannot wait for more of the O’Connor & Kincaid series.
A second chance romance, PTSD, suspense, and heart filled the pages of HIS COWBOY HEART by Jennifer Ryan the sixth book in the Montana Men series. Ryan brings us Ford Kendrick’s story and introduces us to Jamie Keller, a war hero who has returned home to Montana. I devoured this and enjoyed the full range of emotions I experienced- you’ll fall in love with Ford and Jamie.
Since starting the Heartbreaker Bay series I have anxiously been awaiting Elle and Archer’s series. Their snark and chemistry ignited pages despite their obvious efforts to squash the flames. Accidentally On Purpose delivered from the snark to the sparks!
I bought the audiobook of NOS4A2 by Joe Hill last year and decided it would be the perfect listen for this years #HoHoHoRAT. Wouldn’t a trip to Christmasland be wonderful? *shivers* Narrator Kate Mulgrew brilliantly brought Hill’s dark, frightening tale to life.

Curl up with some cocoa as this couple resolves their issues in this friends to lovers romance.
