Weekend Book Club--Sinful Rewards 8 by Cynthia Sax

SINFUL REWARDS 8: A BILLIONAIRES AND BIKERS NOVELLA is my Weekend Book Club selection this week. I'm not a big fan of first person or serials, and this is both, but I absolutely LOVE this series. Cynthia Sax gives a satisfying story with each novella, but it pushes us deeper into the heart and mind of Bee Carter.

I'm team Hawke all the way! I recommend reading this series from the beginning. It's well worth it.

Bee Carter is no longer torn between her handsome billionaire and her tattooed bad-boy biker. After enjoying mind-melting, world-tilting sex and experiencing the pleasure of waking in her man's arms, she has finally made her choice.

Or has she?

A violent early morning confrontation pits biker against billionaire and results in a shocking proposal: the discarded man is willing to overlook Bee's wild night with his rival in order to win her love. He will sacrifice his pride, his heart, and everything he holds dear to have her.

Bee is unmoved by the offer … until the man she's chosen encourages her to accept.

Now Bee is yet again faced with an impossible decision: Does she pursue the man she craves, who has rejected her love, or does she settle for the man who will do anything for her?

Happy Chinese New Year


Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon)

No one writes tortured anti-heroes better than Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Zarek from DANCE WITH THE DEVIL is one of the best. I love her Dark Hunter series.

Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

Weekend Book Club--The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

I've been reading Julia Quinn for years, ever since the day I picked up the first book in her Bridgerton series. I love the family dramas and unlikely heroines in her stories. A Julia Quinn book is an indulgence (much like dark chocolate) and one I gave to myself this past week with the release of  THE SECRETS OF SIR RICHARD KENWORTHY. This is part of her Smythe-Smith quartet.

If you enjoy historical romance you MUST read Julia Quinn.

Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can't be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family's infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She's the type of girl you don't notice until the second—or third—look, but there's something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she's the one.

Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can't quite believe it's all true. When his proposal of marriage turns into a compromising position that forces the issue, she can't help thinking that he's hiding something . . . even as her heart tells her to say yes.

Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Causing Havoc by Lori Foster)

CAUSING HAVOC by Lori Foster is the first book in her SBC Fighters series. She was one of the first, if not the first author to tackle the sport of mixed martial arts fighting in a romance series. Causing Havoc remains a favorite of mine. I just reread it this week. 

Orphaned and torn from his sisters as a boy, sexy extreme wrestler Dean "Havoc" Conor gets a letter revealing how much his siblings want him back in Harmony, Kentucky. To stop his sister from marrying a sleazeball, Dean finds himself teaming up with her pretty-but-smart-mouthed friend Eve-who's heard of Havoc's reputation and doesn't need some hunk trampling on her heart. Now all Dean has to do is protect his sisters, win Eve over, and expose a devious criminal. And he thought winning the heavyweight belt was hard.
