Book 3 Buy Link

In the third book of Heather Heyford’s series, set in Oregon’s wine country, a returning war hero and his “friend with benefits” discover that some vintages only improve with time . . .
Uncorking the Truth
When the town of Clarkston, Oregon, welcomes Captain Sam Owens home from the service, Sophia “Red” McDonald is first in line. The sassy psychotherapist has known Sam since they were kids, and the grown-up Sam is darned near irresistible. With his abs of steel and those gorgeous hazel eyes, he could have any woman he wanted. Naturally, Red is thrilled when he takes her hand . . .

She’s a modern woman, happy to canoodle with the sexy soldier, no strings attached—until her heart changes the rules. Suddenly, after months of casual hookups, Red finds she wants more. She longs to possess Sam body and soul. But his warrior’s heart was wounded long before he joined the service. As a therapist, Red has ways of making him talk. Only if Sam opens up and spills his secrets can they finally have everything their hearts desire . . .


Lisa’s Tuesday Book Review – is this 3rd book in this Contemporary Romance series.  I missed book 1-2 and was able to pick up with the story and characters just fine. But I would definitely read the other books -so you get the full background of the story of Sam and Red. Both of this characters were great but Sam had some secrets he needed to work out. But Red is a capable female lead and a perfect match for head strong Sam. This book was a wonderful read and I strongly recommend it with a glass of wine.  Lisa

My Book Review – Heather  Long’s books are a long time favorite. This book is another winner  with a mix of military and shifter romance- hopefully a start to a great new series. In this book we are Introduced to Bravo team a group of special Force Recon unit that is made up of – Wolf shifters. A well kept secret maybe ? Because Kat is sent to investigate as a female Marine trying to join the Team.  I enjoyed all the Team members and how they bonded with Kat. And Jax the alpha of the squad just swoon worthy. Kat has what it takes to be a Marine but when thrown with Wolves she has to make some hard choices in her life. This book has it all shifter, military action and a strong female lead in Kat . Oorah !  Watching out for more books from this great author.  Lisa 

Today’s Review- Wild & Sweet



purchase link

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs. 

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn’t always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.

Zeke doesn’t play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he’s exactly what she needs in her life. He’ll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.

When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

This book is approximately 95,000 words

Review for Ashwin

Ashwin (Gideon’s Riders, Book #1)


ARC from Net Galley

Amazon Buy Link

The first book in the follow-up to Kit Rocha’s bestselling BEYOND series…

Gideon’s Riders, Book One

Lieutenant Ashwin Malhotra is a Makhai soldier—genetically engineered to be cold, ruthless. Unfeeling. His commanding officers consider him the perfect operative, and they’re right. Now, he has a simple mission: to infiltrate Gideon’s Riders, the infamous sect of holy warriors that protects the people of Sector One.

He’s never failed to execute an objective, but there’s one thing he didn’t anticipate—running into Dr. Kora Bellamy, the only woman to ever break through his icy exterior.

When Kora fled her life as a military doctor for the Makhai Project, all she wanted was peace—a quiet life where she could heal the sick and injured. The royal Rios family welcomed her like a sister, but she could never forget Ashwin. His sudden reappearance is a second chance—if she can manage to touch his heart.

When the simmering tension between them finally ignites, Kora doesn’t realize she’s playing with fire. Because she’s not just falling in love with a man who may not be able to love her back. Ashwin has too many secrets—and one of them could destroy her.

My book Review – First this is a spin -Off of Beyond Series. But I have only read some of that series and had no problems following the book. 

Set in Sector 1 – Ashwin is sent in to infiltrate Gideon’s Raiders. Ashwin is a genetically engineered solider and alpha as they come. He didn’t expect to see Kora -who had been part of the Base . Ashwin went in thinking one thing and as the book proceeded he changed – became more human and a softer side toward Kora and humans. Kora is a doctor that feels everything and has escaped the Base to be part of Gideon’s family. Ashwin and Kora is great together and as the book proceeds and secrets are revealed  you see the two become one. A great first book and look forward to book 2 Deacons book. Lisa
