When a mission goes sideways and leaves seasoned spy Arabella Nox with valuable information and a terrorist on her heels, she seeks out the one person on earth she hopes won’t betray her: the husband she hasn’t spoken to in years.
Felix Ibarra thought he’d put his past behind him, so he’s shocked when Arabella shows up naked in his bed, warning him of an imminent threat. Then, to make things worse, she gets a job with his firm, Wyn Security, behind his back. It’s clear there’s more to her story, but trust doesn’t come easily to either of them.
Can Felix and Arabella work together to banish a mutual enemy, or will the deep emotions that tore them apart the first time be their undoing once again?
This sexy cat-and-mouse game between former lovers will keep you on your toes all the way to the surprising ending.

Protecting His Heart was a quick and easy read for me. I was intrigued by Felix and Arabella instantly. I wanted to know more about the two of them and how things could go so terribly wrong for them. They shared such intense chemistry. You could feel the love and passion just oozing off the two of them. I loved how the two of them were brought together and forced to be around one another. I think it really opened both of their eyes and made them see why they were together in the first place….if only they could work past their issues. I gotta tell you, I really enjoyed watching them try to find out.
Protecting His Heart was such a fun ride. I loved the story-line. I thought it was a great second chance romance with an exciting game of cat and mouse. This book was filled with danger, suspense and lots of action. There was also lots of romance, sexy good times and some angst to top it all off. This is my first read by this author and I can not wait to read more from her in the future.

Craving (Steel Brothers Saga #1)
by Helen Hardt (Release Date 3rd May 2016)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Coming soon from New York Times Bestselling Author Harper Sloan is the third book in the Hope Town Series
WHEN I’M WITH YOU.
It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.
He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

Featuring scorching hot chemistry and plenty of sass, Dirty Rideis sure to rev your engine and get you immediately hooked!
“I’m not going to let anything happen to me, not now that I have you.”
“There’s a thin line between love and hate, but now we are well into hate, way past the line.”
“In the midst of all the drama, it’s important to remember what I’m fighting for, and this is it. To be with this man with no one in our way. To cut ties with the past, and to be free.”
What a thrilling, thrilling ride!!!
Dirty Ride is the book number 3.5 in the Wind Dragons MC series and is my first read by this author, and I gotta tell you, she has made a fan out of me.
Dirty Ride is a quick and easy read. But, don’t let the length of this novella fool you. This novella packs a punch. From the very first page you are sucked into Tina’s story. She is on the run, trying to escape an abusive past. The last thing she had on her mind was falling love and meeting someone else….From the moment that Irish set his eyes on Tina, it was over for him. He was a man possessed. He knew what he want and wasn’t afraid to go after it. As Irish and Tina grow closer, their connection can not be denied and the two of them steam up the pages together. But, as you know, it all can’t be perfect for long. Soon enough, Tina’s past is ready to catch up with her. The stakes are high and you’ll just have to read the story for yourself to see how it will all play out.
I loved everything about Dirty Ride. It had the perfect mix of romance, danger, action and steam. As I previously stated, this is actually my first read by this author, but I gotta tell you, she does such a good job with this story, that I didn’t feel lost at all. You can comfortably read this book as a stand-alone. For me personally, after reading this little novella, I am super excited to check out the rest of this series to find out what I’ve been missing out on.

Holly Woods is going to hell in a handbasket—but this time, Satanists aren’t to blame. Halloween is.
Nonna doesn’t understand why there are skeletons and demons everywhere. Mom is threatening to stitch a devil into Nonna’s pillowcase if she doesn’t shut up. Bek is bumbling over a date with Jason, the handsome FBI agent who conveniently got himself relocated to Austin, and I… Well. I’m considering running away to a town without the crazies.
Nothing new here.
Everything is going smoothly—too smoothly—and I can’t shake the feeling that something is about to happen. Drake insists I’m being paranoid… But when a body turns up at the Holly Woods Halloween party, we have a whole lot more than a murderer to worry about.
Because the prime suspect is his mom.
And it’s my job to prove she’s innocent.
“I know I tease him about it a lot, but it really is one of my favorite things about him. The strong, protective side of him that roars any time I come within a sniffing distance of danger is one of the parts I love about him most….Especially since he hasn’t yelled at me yet. It could totally change when we get back to my place, because I can practically feel the anger buzzing inside him, but you know. For now, I like that.”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I just can’t get enough of this series. It is literally like getting to watch my favorite tv show, but instead, I get to hold the story in my hands. With each new installment, I can’t help but burn through the pages to see just what trouble or situation Noelle will find herself in next.
From the moment you pick up Tied Bond, you are drawn into the story and won’t be able to put it down. When we meet up with Drake and Noelle, things are in a bit of chaos. Nonna and mom are fighting. Bek is stressing over a date with Jason. And everything that can go wrong does, especially when a dead body shows up at a Halloween party. To make matters worse, the prime suspect is Drake’s mom. So, now the question is, will Noelle be able to solve the crime and set Drake’s mother free??
Tied Bond is a fantastic addition to the Holly Woods Files series. It is entertaining and their certainly is never a dull moment. It’s got the perfect balance of action, suspense, drama and romance. Emma Hart has once again provided me with a fabulous story, and I for one can’t wait to see what hot water Noelle will land herself in next. Fans of this series, you will not be disappointed.

There’s danger in the beauty…

But he did. And I was done waiting.
