Keeping Her Guilty Secret
Passion ignites between Nicole Bradford and Max Paradis the moment they lay eyes on each other, but despite the sizzling attraction and Max’s to-die-for kisses, Nicole is reluctant to get involved. She’s been burned by love before.
Carlo had been her ideal mate but the dream became a nightmare when his drug-smuggling past was revealed.
Now all Nicole wants is to get on with her life and keep the secret she’s been hiding for the last six years.
Still, how can she resist the handsome and sexy Max when he’s everything she’s ever wanted in a man? And what will she do when Carlo returns and threatens to expose her ugly past?
Nicole will have to trust Max with the truth if she wants to win his love and get Carlo out of her life for good. If she doesn’t, Carlo could destroy everything that matters most to her.
When you don’t have the time, or you just want to pick up a nice shorter read to break up your day, this book will satisfy that urge. A sweet romance, with a bit of mystery to it and not overly long, easily read in a couple hours in an afternoon. Nicole has been taking care of her two younger sisters since their parents died. Working two jobs and selling off items of her parents to pay for their education and putting herself last has been her normal for six years. One of her sisters, Ashley, is set to be married to the man that Nicole works for, and when Nicole meets her boss’ brother Max, sparks fly. But there will some highs and lows, and some secrets that will need to be told and taken care. And nope, you aren’t getting them from me.
It’s a nice story, I was easily attached to the characters, even though it could have used more descriptions and there were a couple points that seem to jump a bit in the time frame, but the rest of the story was seamless and enjoyable.

A Love Worth Saving
Reed McNamara doesn’t love his wife, Ashley. Why invest emotionally when love doesn’t last? Theirs had been a mutually agreed upon fun and games while it lasted affair . . . until Ashley got pregnant. But tragedy strikes when Ashley miscarries and the sole reason for their marriage is lost.
Reed must conquer past hurts and learn to believe in love again. If he doesn’t, he’ll lose Ashley, and miss out on a love worth saving.
Book two of this trilogy, brings back our characters from book one, and we learn more about Reed and Ashley, whose engagement helped spur on the romance of Max and Nicole in the previous installment. But the romance between Reed and Ashley was not as it appeared on the surface, and if they can finally admit that they love each other and can save their marriage, well, that may be a hard sell.
Another shorter story, and it was great to get to know both Ashley and Reed, and great to see characters come back from the last book. Both of the books in this series will satisfy the romantic in the reader, and give a nice afternoon break from reality. Reviewed by Cyrene
