Don’t Get Wrongfully Accused

At first I saw Lethal on the rack and wondered if I would want to pick it up. After Tough Customer I was hesitant and not because it was a bad book which is far from the truth, but I wasn’t sure if it would be a roller coaster. Lethal had its ups and downs but there was not so much betrayal on the main characters which I liked.

Honor Gillette and her daughter Emily lived alone after her husband was killed in a fatal car accident. Her world will get turned upside down though when she encounters a man who just killed seven people.

Lee Corban is wanted for murder but he wouldn’t go down without a fight. He is looking for something which will tie everything together and he hopes that Eddie Gillette’s widow, Honor, will provide him with the answers.

With cops and FBI agents looking everywhere, Corban must make a decision and that is to take Honor and Emily with him before anyone else has to die.

This novel was fantastic. I loved it and did not want to put it down. Sandra Brown delivers books which are sometimes tough to read because they are not always romance but mystery or action adventure where the characters are not always at a happy ending.

Her characters were well written and intriguing to read about. I loved the twist and the betrayal as you were not sure who did what and who the person really was. The ending I thought wasn’t going to go how you wanted but it left it open and to a happy ending a reader can imagine which I liked.

I can’t wait for the next novel by Sandra Brown.

Temptation’s Kiss

Megan Lambert is a sales manger for her radio station and is good at her job. As a widow of three years Megan put her mind into work. But life is going to tilt as Josh is thrusted back into her life.

Josh Bennett is a major advertiser and has worked his way up. He is good at getting what he wants except for Megan but that will change. Josh gave her those three years but now is when he will show Megan what she means to him.

Reading Sandra Brown is always a love story that you will want to finish from the very start. Temptation’s Kiss is an easy going story but with two characters who fight every step. As a reader you will like that Megan’s drive to stay away and not to melt but to keep a conscious in regards to Josh.

Temptation’s Kiss is a short novel, just one of many in Sandra Brown’s collection.

You will also be swept away by the little girl who you can’t help but love to read about. The trio will leave you frustrated and full of hope to when they will become a true family.

Eloquent Silence is a novel you will want to read.

Breakfast in Bed

The two book series Breakfast in Bed are two shorter novels which are a delight to read for any romance reader. Sandra Brown creates these three friends and splits them up only to see how there lives change with a single action.

Breakfast in Bed

Sloane owns a bed and breakfast that is going down hill but she has to make it work especially in the off season. But now that is not her only worry as her best friend’s, Alicia Russell, fiance is coming to stay at the inn to finish his book. Carter and Sloane are instantly attracted but they know it is impossible until they give in. Love blossoms but guilt is strong as both are cheating their best friend. Neither knows how they can live without the other but they know they can’t stay together.

The book was touching to read and very steamy in Carter and Sloane’s relationship. You felt for both characters as how they could not end up together but the end will surprise the reader as a happy ending will come out for all three parties involved.

Send No Flowers

Alicia Russell has to boys to worry about and if that is not bad enough a storm is making her vacation with her boys impossible.

Neither wanted to become involved but it happens and there is a secret which will destroy Alicia that Pierce is hiding. But Alicia will know what to do as the time comes.

Reading the book right after the first was a nice transition because you felt for the widow Alicia and you wanted her to be happy. Pierce seemed like the guy but as you find out what is wrong your heart will drop. Sandra Brown keeps you in suspense until the very end which makes the ending that much more exciting.

The entire series is worth reading with its ups and downs especially in Texas! Chase. Sandra Brown created wonderful characters who were driven and real from a family point of view.

Tidings of Great Joy by Sandra Brown

Ria Lavender is the last woman in the world to be swept away by a smooth line and a seductive smile.  Talented, sophisticated, and determined, she’s carved out a place for herself in the most prestigious architectural firm in the city.  And she’s just beginning to savor the fruits of her success when she meets a man who will change everything.

Mayor-Elect Taylor MacKenzie is handsome, charming, and charismatic.  Still, Ria never imagines that she’ll leave a Christmas party with him, or that, caught up in the magic of a snowfall and a bottle of champagne, she’ll give in to desire.  But the next morning she faces the stunning truth: she’s slept with a man she barely knows.  And that’s not the only surprise in store: eight weeks later, Ria Knows she’s carrying Taylor MacKensie’s child.

Desperate to spare her baby the pain and stigma of illegitimacy, Ria makes the only decision she can.  Somehow she must persuade Taylor MacKensie to agree to a temporary marriage.  Yet how do you propose marriage to a relative stranger?  How do you react when he meets your news with anger and disbelief?

Within hours, Taylor’s outrage cools and he insists that they marry immediately.  Suddenly Ria is sharing his house, his name, and something infinitely more dangerous to her  heart…a tenderness she never expected, a passion she can’t seem to control.  But afraid that Taylor’s motives have more to do with protecting his career-and his baby-than with his feelings for her, Ria will try her best to keep her distance…until the day tragedy strikes and teaches them both a lesson in miracles-and love.

Sandra Brown created a quaint story on two people who were not looking for love  found it in the mist of it all.  The characters are  unforgettable filled with passion and warmth.

A heartwarming story filled with mistakes, tragedy, blessings and an enduring love. Just right for the holiday season.

The Mason Sisters Series by Sandra Brown

The Mason Sisters series was not one that I heard of before I picked up Sandra Brown.  This series consist of two books one each about the two sisters, Elizabeth and Lilah.

Fanta C

Elizabeth Burke’s days are filled with the business of running an elegant boutique and caring for her two small children.  But her nights are long and empty since the death of her husband two years before, and she spends them dreaming of the love and romance that might have been.  Then Thad Randolph steps into her life-and man right out of her most intimate fantasies.

Elizabeth doesn’t believe in fairy tales, and she knows all too well that happy endings only happen in books.  Now she wishes she could convince herself that friendship is all she wants from Thad.  But the day will come when she’ll finally have to make a choice-to remain forever true to her memories or to let go of the past and risk loving once more.

The first book starts off very sensual, erotic and fun to read.  I loved that the character Elizabeth is a mother of two and has an alter ego for a closet erotic writer.

Adam’s Fall

Over the past few years Lilah Mason has watched her sister find love, get married, and have children, while she’s been more than content to channel her energies into her career.  A physical therapist with an unsinkable spirit and unwavering compassion, she’s one of the best in the field.  But when Lilah takes on a demanding new case, her patient’s life isn’t the only one transformed.

She’ll never had a tougher patient than Adam, who challenges her at every turn.  Yet Lilah is determined to help him recover the life he’s lost.  What she can’t see, until it’s much too late, is that while she’s winning Adam’s battle she’s losing her heart…as Adam makes her question her most intimate beliefs about men, about love, and mostly about herself.  Now, as professional duy and her passionate yearnings clash, she must choose the right course for them both.

The sequel to the Mason Sisters series was fantastic to read.  I loved the heated arguments they got into and how Lilah is always surprising everyone with what she does and what she believes.

Sandra Brown brings love to each of these sisters but in completely different ways.



The Rana Look by Sandra Brown

They called it the Rana Look…the exotic, one-of-a kind allure that only supermodel Rana Ramsey could deliver.  Now her beautiful eyes are shielded behind tinted glasses, her famous figure hidden under shapeless dresses, her trademark wild hair falling straight down her back.  Rana knows she’ll never attract a man this way, and that’s just fine with her-until she meets Trent Gamblin.

Ruggedly handsome, charming, and undeniably charismatic, Trent is the kind of man Rana finds irresistable…the kind she’s certain would never look twice at the “new” Rana.  But to her surprise, Trent seems unfazed by her Plain Jane look.  For he is drawn to a beauty that Rana can’t hide.  But the outside world cannot be kept at bay forever.  And when tragedy strikes, Rana and Trent will learn whether theirs is just an impossibly erotic dream-or the kind of love that lasts forever.

The secret identity is great and brings some fun for the characters.  There was wit and intrigue to the plot and characters.

But the fact that you get to read about models was interesting.  It makes me sick knowing what models go through.  What the public expects to see out of them.  All it is skin and bone but it is all fake.  Nowadays it is getting better but we are not there yet.  I liked that Brown dove into that topic.

Brown creates this sexy, fun and sensuous romance that you will dive right into.

Play Dirty by Sandra Brown

Brown is known for her romance.  Play Dirty brings that intrigue and thriller aspect to the plot and characters.

After five long years in federal prison, Griff Burkett is a free man.  But the disgraced Cowboys quarterback can never return to life as he knows it before he was caught cheating.  In a place where football is practically a religion, Griff committed a cardinal sin, and no one is forgiving.

Foster Speakman, owner and CEO of SunSouth Airlines, and his wife, Laura are a golden couple.  Successful and weatlhy, they lived a charmed life before fate cruelly intervened and denied them the one thing they wanted most-a child.  It’s said that money can’t buy everything.  But it can buy a disgraced football player fresh out of prison and out of prospects.

The job Griff agrees to do for the Speakmans demands secrecy.  But he soon finds himself once again in the spotlight of suspicion.  An unsolved murder comes back to haunt him in teh form of his nemesis, Stanly Rodarte, who has made Griff destruction his life’s mission.  While safeguarding his new enterprise, Griff must also protect those around him, especially Laura Speakman, from Rodarte’s ruthlessness.  Griff stands to gain the highest payoff he could ever imagain, but cashing in on it will require him to forfeit his only chance for redemption…and love.

Griff is now playing a high-stakes game, and at the final whistle, one player will be dead.

I was impressed with Play Dirty it grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go.  At first when I was reading I got to the middle and seemed like it should be done.  But then something big happens and the action takes over.

The plot is intense to read.  When one of the characters is killed you suspect the other one of murder but did they do it.  It was intriguing to see how the plot panned out.  You didn’t know the murderer then you found out but it didn’t make sense.

Play Dirty brings many surprises, tragedy, and romance to the pages.

Heaven’s Price by Sandra Brown

Blair Simpson embraced a life most people merely dreamed about.  She devoted her nights as well as her days to dancing-in the chorus line of Broadway musicals and in occasional high-paying TV commercials.  Nearly thirty years old, she had never considered another career, believing that dancing was what she’d been born for.  Now an injury has sent her to a small town for six long months of recuperation.  All around her are couples her age who are raising families and building dreams together.  And there she meets a man who forces her to come to terms with a part of herself she has long denied.

From her first encounter with her new landlord, Sean Garrett, the powerful sexual attraction between them catches her off guard.  For the first time she’s unable to lose herself in her dancing, as Sean’s passion and tenderness urge her to open her life to him.  Sean is a contractor who restores old houses-and what he most wants to build is a future with fiery, raven-haired Blair.  But Blair’s own passion for dance has ruled her for so long, she may not be able to break its hold-even if it costs her the love she had thought she’d never find.

I thought Heaven’s Price was heartwarming and really incredible steamy scenes between the two characters.  Brown opens up the story with an amazing scene between the two.

I really liked this story for the sole purpose that it was about the creative side of a person, artistic nature.

Heaven’s Price was a joy to read, even with some sappy love scenes but a very enduring story.
