4 stars-- Best of My Love (Fool's Gold #20) by Susan Mallery


"This is really uncomfortable," she said firmly. "But I think we can get past it."

"Okay."

The slow response was more neutral than agreement.

"We have a purpose," she continued. "I want to fall in love and get married."

Aiden's expression tightened with what could only be described as panic. Some of her tension eased.

"Not to you," she pointed out. "Don't freak."

"Then don't say stuff like that."
Best of my Love is the perfect read if you're looking for a slow building low drama romance. It was a lovely time as Shelby and Aiden start up a bit of an experiment--strangers spending time together and becoming friends. No romance involved. That's right. No naughty bits shall meet and become friendly like. Just two people--who happen to be a female and a male-- getting to know each other, hanging out, and hopefully getting over their respective issues-- she's scared to trust men and he only ever has random hook ups but no real relationships with females..and that's gotta change.

4 stars--Outlaw Cowboy (Big Sky Cowboys #2) by Nicole Helm

Ahhh cowboys! Love me some cowboys. Some sexy times. Some drama. A second chance sort of romance and watching two damaged people grow and heal? Yeah. Nicole Helm had my attention from page one of Outlaw Cowboy and threw me all through a wringer...and it was quite the ride!

The quick of it is that Delia has come back to town to save her baby sister from a bad situation and needing to hide out she pretty much squats on Caleb's land in an old cabin. That is until Caleb discovers her. And then all sorts of growly sexy goodness begins. He may be attracted to Delia but dammit! Caleb does not need the trouble that always follows Delia around. Not when he's trying to turn his life--and ranch--around. A battle of wills...they're gonna have. And it's gonna be messy.

3.5 stars--How I Married a Marquess (The Secret Life of Scoundrels #3) by Anna Harrington

Anna Harrington has me totally smitten. She's a breath of fresh air to the historical romance genre and has me clamoring for more. How I Married A Marquess...unique, action packed and enchanting.

The quick of it is that Thomas is a rather broken ex-spy. He was injured a year ago and just hasn't recovered his steady hand. But he's determined to make his way back and prove to the War Office he's fit for duty again and to do so? he's going to help track down a highwayman that's been targeting guests leaving one particular home for the past couple years. A house party provides the perfect cover if only he can keep his wits around the lovely and distracting Josephine who is way more than she seems at first glance...

Insta-Wednesday: Erm...catching up!


Because I love Instagram and fun pictures. The Herd's week ala Instagram :)

Yeah. So I somehow missed like two weeks in April. Erms. Oops! 
So catching up a little on that. Then from here on out probably doing the Insta-Wed every other week...

5 stars!! Fly With Me (Wild Aces #1) by Chanel Cleeton

Wow. Just...wow. Yall, Cleeton left me smiling, with tears in my eyes, and desperately needing book two of the Wild Aces series. Fly With Me blew me away. What a stunningly wonderful mix of humor, love, lust, heartbreak, and dreamy romance. *serious reader-girl sigh*

The quick of it is that sometimes the Fates they do conspire a girl meets her the man of her dreams while wearing a bobbing pink penis headband and rocking out to music at a Vegas night club. Yeah. Not the most glamorous of moments but one that sparked off an instant connection and a whirlwind romance between Noah and Jordan. Two very different people with a connection that refused to be ignored despite everything standing in their way...including an entire country.

Buy The Book-- New Releases, Sales, Freebies (5/3)

Charlaine Harris has been a long time favorite of mine (minus a book not too long ago) and oh I have been enjoying Midnight, Texas. It's mystery with some paranormal added in and brings characters from all her different series into one real quirky odd town in Texas.

Anywho. So this is Fiji who is the resident witch and her familiar...Mr Snuggly. Fiji has to pick one of the local men for something and her kitteh is, well, cat-ish about it with his advice. I totally cracked up at the end. I may or may not have had similar thoughts about the herd babes over the years.
