Protecting the Enemy was originally published as Honor Bound. It has since been expanded, revised, and re-edited.
Twelve years ago, I gave up the love of my life because my family made the relationship impossible. Now that Ali has come back to me, I’m not going to give her up again.
It’s been years since I’ve seen her, and I know she’s hated me all this time. I never expected to see her working as an event planner for one of my father’s business partners. But here she is, always snooping around and getting into trouble. I’m supposed to be providing security, but I can’t stop thinking about her.
She’s up to something, and it might put her in danger. She sees me as the enemy now. Maybe I am, but I’m not going to lose her again. I might be hired to protect the man she’s working against, but my heart only wants to protect her.
Protecting the Enemy by both Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams is the second installment to their new romance series. This book is another tale about second chances. A romance that existed but never got the chance to bloom until now. But there’s plenty of obstacles to get through first. Love is messy, complex, and complicated. It can leave damage…
Hatred, anger, danger, and sparks ignite in this exciting book. I felt closer to these characters than the previous book. However, I still miss the full fledge magic that Samantha Chase always brings to her books. Seeing as this is co-written, it’s hard to feel that magic that I’m so used to feeling. But it’s still worth reading every damn page. I was engaged. Hooked. Intrigued by ehatwould transpire between the two protagonists. Writers Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams create a chemistry that lingers far after one finishes reading. Overall, I recommend this second title to readers everywhere. Protecting the Enemy is a contemporary full of heat and action.

From the novelist the New York Times compares to Paul Bowles, Evelyn Waugh and Ian McEwan, an evocative new work of literary suspense
Adrift in Cambodia and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher, 28-year-old Englishman Robert Grieve decides to go missing. As he crosses the border from Thailand, he tests the threshold of a new future.
And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events– involving a bag of “jinxed” money, a suave American, a trunk full of heroin, a hustler taxi driver, and a rich doctor’s daughter– that changes Robert’s life forever.
Hunters in the Dark is a sophisticated game of cat and mouse redolent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith, where identities are blurred, greed trumps kindness, and karma is ruthless. Filled with Hitchcockian twists and turns, suffused with the steamy heat and pervasive superstition of the Cambodian jungle, and unafraid to confront difficult questions about the machinations of fate, this is a masterful novel that confirms Lawrence Osborne’s reputation as one of our finest contemporary writers.
Hunters in the Dark by Lawerence Osborne is dark, gritty, yet most engaging read ever. Nothing will happen like reader’s expect. Twits and turns everywhere. The suspense builds like a fire consuming a forest. Anticipation grows as readers wait to find the unexpected outcomes. I got to travel from my reading spot to Cambodia. Most exciting yet dangerous place I have traveled. The main character, Robert Grieve, is a British teacher, whose life sudden engulfs readers like myself into a steady plot. He leaves his life behind and the new one…is like wild rollercoaster. Karma and humanity tough topics found within the pages. The beginning was a bit slow, but it soon lead to the adventure at hand. Well-written. I recommend Hunters in the Dark to readers everywhere.

To Love a Lord of London is a very entertaining read. A historical regency romance that has three romances combined into one amazing book. I am in love. Eleanor Meyers has once again, delivered a brilliant set of characters that will charm readers into the plot. Each set of characters, carry their own personalities so different from the others that it’s hard to resist such temptations. Each man presented before readers will have their hands full. They will surely be tempted as they women they fall for come into their hearts. Creating a fiery passion and an irresistible read. The emotional journey is engaging. I love following each character over coming their own obstacles. Trust, danger, and revenge can definitely have the opposite effects when carried out…fate can make life much more complicated and risky than originally planned. Never a dull moment in this clean romance. Eleanor Meyers is a new favorite writer of mine. Her words carry the right assortment of pleasures, adventures, and intrigue. Overall, I highly recommend To Love a Lord of London to readers everywhere.
In a lyrical, captivating debut set against the backdrop of the Harlem Renaissance and glittering Jazz Age Paris, Joe Okonkwo creates an evocative story of emotional and artistic awakening.
On a sweltering summer night in 1925, beauties in beaded dresses mingle with hepcats in dapper suits on the streets of Harlem. The air is thick with reefer smoke, and jazz pours out of speakeasy doorways. Ben Charles and his devoted wife, Angeline, are among the locals crammed into a basement club to hear jazz and drink bootleg liquor. For the aspiring poet, Ben, the swirling, heady rhythms are a revelation. So is Baby Back Johnston, an ambitious trumpet player who flashes a devilish grin and blasts jazz dynamite from his horn. Ben finds himself drawn to the trumpeter—and to Paris where Baby Back says everything is happening.
In Paris, jazz and champagne flow eternally, and blacks are welcomed as exotic celebrities, especially those from Harlem. It’s an easy life that quickly leaves Ben adrift and alone, craving solace through anonymous dalliances in the city’s decadent underground scene. From chic Parisian cafés to seedy opium dens, his odyssey will bring new love, trials, and heartache, even as echoes from the past urge him to decide where true fulfillment and inspiration lie.
Rating: 5 stars
Jazz Moon by Joe Okonkwo will make readers question everything they read and feel. Nothing like a novel about jazz that brings out the poetic side to everyone especially the characters. A debut novel that brings, to life, the action, drama, and passion of 1925. Times where everything beckoned and called to those who hearts wanted more. Inside this title, readers will get a glimpse into a poet’s lifestyle. He has a devoted wife but is angry with her…he soon find himself attracted to another who brings out the heat of raw animalistic desire deep within his blood. A stirring unlike any other. Paris is a place where art, passion, and desire come in abundance and that’s where both Ben and his new lover find themselves. Joe Okonkwo brings readers the best world of fiction readers will find. Race, jazz, and travel are deep topics easily explored within this exciting well-written plot. Overall, I highly recommend this new novel, Jazz Moon, to readers everywhere.

Set in California, France, and the Swiss Alps, The Arrangement is a sparkling, sensual novel that explores the complexities of a marriage and the many different ways in which we love. Writing at the top of her game, Ashley Warlick gives us a completely mesmerizing story about a woman well ahead of her time, who would go on to become the legendary food writer M. F. K. Fisher.
Rating: 5 stars
The Arrangement by Ashley Warlick is a historical fiction piece that gives readers an inside view of one woman’s life. Love, passion, intrigue…all brilliantly written for readers to enjoy. A woman who has a passion for writing and is married to one man but falls in love with his best friend. The novel is exciting because it happens around the early 1930’s. A fascinating historical moment in time. Ashley Warlick brings readers a female character who is strong, independent, and hard working. It’s hard not to love the main character. The character’s personality is a bit bold and sassy for a woman during this time period but fits in perfectly with the fictional plot that Ashley Warlick has masterfully woven for readers enjoyment. What happens on this one woman’s journey as her heart goes back and forth between two loves and her career…is one that readers must read to figure out on their own. I was deeply enchanted by this sexy tale.
The Arrangement takes readers deep on a journey of self-discovery, love, and a promising future. The novel is steady paced yet fast-paced in certain scenes and highly suspenseful. Mary Frances has choices to make. After all, she’s a married woman to one man yet her heart goes out to another. Readers will enjoy following Mary Francis and her affairs as well as her developing writing career. Just as in real life, there are bumpy roads and Mary Francis will experience many before she arrives at the height of her career and love. Ashley Warlick has brought a sensually exciting read for her audience. Once readers open up this title, they will be instantly dragged into the life of M.F.K. Fisher (Mary Francis). What readers will love most about this character is that she isn’t sure what she wants exactly until later in the novel. This vulnerable part of her exposes her in a way that makes it easy to connect with her. Overall, this is definitely a must read for readers worldwide. A woman’s novel that everyone can enjoy and be sucked into from the first page onward.

Rating: 4.5 stars
June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore is an intriguing read for all. The novel itself fluctuates between events from the 1950’s to the present moment. Events from the past have an enormous effect on the characters and how their lives will play out in the end. Three women’s lives are brought together inside this juicy drama filled novel. Readers will be piqued as to how each character handles the new information they have been given and what will become of them. A grandmother has passed away and left an inheritance to one woman and then a grandfather that she never knew about left her an inheritance as well. Hollywood star from the past brings all the secrets, lies, and betrayals to the women presented in the present moment within this title. It’s funny how one knows their life and then suddenly it all changes with a death of two people. Two people who have held secrets for a long time.
Miranda Beverly-Whittemore’s writing is well-written. The characters will become living beings that pop off the pages as the events that haunted the past come bubbling up to the present. Nothing like family drama to stir things up…as a reader I didn’t really click with any one character. The characters had news they were not expecting and dealt with it on a day to day basis. I didn’t feel sympathy for the women…but I could relate to their issues. June is an intimate yet suspenseful tale that will lure readers into its plot. Each woman has her own struggles as well as the ones they all share. This gives the story depth and a realistic feeling to it. I was curious with each page as to how the ending would turn out…and I have to say the tension builds into an explosively stunning piece. Overall, I recommend this novel to readers everywhere.

The Beauty and the Feast by J.R. Barret is a highly entertaining romance. It’s hot, sexy, and funny sweet. This was the first novel I have read by this talented author. The characters were fun to read about and follow along with as the plot developed. Readers will be enticed with this title from the first page. Food, culture, and amazing travel, readers will get to taste and view when reading this brilliant novel. I found myself completely lost as I read this story. It was like I was right there watching and engaging in the exciting scenes around me. The smells were so vivid that I found myself almost tasting the delicious meals prepared by the main character. She is beautiful, smart, and fun. J.R Barret’s novel is steady paced and well-written. Once readers open it up to read it won’t be put down until they read the last page. Inside The Beauty and the Feast, readers are taken into a kitchen where we find our main character cooking and then being hosed down by a horny teenage boy. A horny teenage boy that she has to babysit for her boss. He takes great pleasure in soaking her shirts until they are transparent . . . then leaves grinning like a Chesire Cat of Wonderland. Readers will be intrigued by Eva whose cooking skills will make anyone’s mouth water . . . especially that of a hot sexy man who heats up her dreams. Gabe is soon led to Eva and unlike most romantic relationships; this woman has a lot more than looks to attract a red-blooded male. But what fate holds in store for them both is one readers must find out on their own. I absolutely loved reading this title—the cover and name of the book fit in perfectly with the story and its characters. Spicy, sensual, and masterfully woven, The Beauty and the Feast, is definitely a must read for all.
We’ve all heard the saying: you never forget your first love. For some, however, perhaps the better terminology is haunted—haunted with the memories, the connections, and the life-changing relationship. So begins the tale of Emma Ranstein and Corbin Jones, two typical teenagers who travel the road of first love together, hearts sealed by a seemingly impenetrable bond. When Corbin Jones is convicted of murder and faces years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, though, their love is put to the test. As Emma and Corbin await his release from prison decades later, both reflect on the power of a relationship neither has gotten over. Their unique story speaks to a universal heartstring within all of us: how do we move on past a first love if we aren’t meant to do so? More importantly, it reminds us that there is hope if the heart leads the way.

As I turn the small door knob made of brass,
I look out into the open field of tall grass,
There far, far in the center is a young lass.
Her golden hair swaying in the summers gentle breeze.
Her skin like porceiln glowing brightly in the morning’s sun.
I try with all my might to shake my mind loose of the thoughts of her and I having fun.
Only if she would look at me,
but then again what shall that do,
if she to leave soon.
Halfway to me and she starts running as fast as those tall slender legs of hers would take her.
Soon we meet up, but before either one of us can speak, she clings to me tightly ands starts
sobbing upon my sleeve.
Meanwhile, all I can do is hold her tightly to me.
Just when I thought she has stooped crying, she gazes up at me with those pierceing blue eyes,
and says to me, “Im not leaving.”
Upon hearing those words coming forth from her, every vein in my body is pounding with joy and happiness with a profound new energy racing thro me like never before.
I just stand there as tho frozen in time.
My ears not wanting to believe what was just said.
she clings to me to me even closer, and says in a loud whisper,” I love you”.
Hearing that from her sent my whole mind buzzing with new ideas.
stuff we could do together for the summer.
sensing her so close to me, mad my arms wrap around her tighter yet.
then very slowly, I brushed my lips upon her forehead, then to the top of her nose, and gently but hestistantly to her soft , lips. the sweetness making my mind buzz even more than ever.
hastily i kiss her, all over again. hearing her sigh deeply and feeling her whole body relaxing in my grasp.
I casually make my way down to her cheeks, her lips and her jaw. the texture of her silky hair , sends ripples of pleasure up and down my spine.
thy other hand tightly, tightly around her waist keeping her as close as possible.
neither one of us cared if it was scorching hot out or the tiny mosqittoes bitiing into our flesh.
Soon, the sun would be seting and casting bright colors into the sky.
Finally after several long moments we take each others hand and depart back to the hotel. Leaving behind us the beauty of nature.
