Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn’t going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.

Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.

But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

REVIEW – This is the first book i have read by this author duo. It was a sweet romance story and had the most idyllic setting it sounded so lovely. Set at my fave time of year – Autumn, and with two characters who would never normally look at each other or focus on the idea of romance. But the romance that grows is sweet and fun and though not my normal type of book to read was very enjoyable. 







Add the book to Goodreads:



Rebecca Norinne writes sexy romance from the heart. Her heroines are bold and headstrong, and her heroes will do anything for the ones they love.

When not banging away at the keyboard, she is watching rugby, enjoying a pint of craft beer, or traveling the globe in search of inspiration for her next book.

Originally from California, Rebecca currently resides in Dublin, Ireland, with her husband.













Jamaila Brinkley writes historical romance with a hint of magic. Her Wizards of London series features thieves, duchesses, witches, and more indulging in mayhem and romance in Regency England. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, and was a finalist in the Romance Through the Ages contest in 2015.

Jamaila came to romance as an avid reader of fantasy and science fiction, and found that her favorite historical romances seemed ripe for an injection of magic. Her favorite historical period is currently the Victorian era, and she’s never happier than when immersed in a multi-book family series.

The Problem With Him – Rachel Higginson

The Problem With Him Book Cover The Problem With Him
Opposites Attract #3
Rachel Higginson
26th June 2018

I’m over men. I’m done with them.

Or at least the ones that work in my kitchen. Fine, one man in particular. Wyatt Shaw is cocky and condescending and so far out of his element that he doesn’t know which way is up. Or how to run his brand new kitchen all by himself.

That’s where I come in. Sous chef extraordinaire. Second in command. Bane of his existence. I am the reason Wyatt’s doing so well as the new executive chef of one of our city’s most prestigious restaurants. He has me to thank for his glowing accolades and five-star write-ups. Only if you were to ask him, he’d say I’m his biggest problem.

Despite his discouragement and bullish behavior, I’ve set two goals for myself.

The first? I’m going to fight my way to the top of this male-dominated industry and claim my own award-winning kitchen.

The second? I’m going to do whatever it takes to ignore Wyatt and his rare smiles and the thickening tension that’s started to simmer between us.

Wyatt Shaw might be Durham’s new shining star. He might be up for a James Beard Award. He might be my new boss and key to my future success, but he’s also in my way.

So he can keep his smoldering looks and secret kisses. And he can be the one that figures out how to make it through service without getting distracted by me.

I’m not the problem. The problem is him.

REVIEW – Though part of a series this book can be read as a stand-alone. Rachel Higginson has created some engaging characters who you really begin to feel for. There is some serious sexual tension going on between Wyatt and Kaya. I loved how determined Kaya is to succeed to get to the top of her profession, but it would be hard for anyone to withstand the hotness that is Wyatt. Rachel has a smooth writing style it is easy to get sucked into her stories and i certainly did with this one.She does write many other types of books but i always love her contemporary romance stories.  



“I’m impressed, chef. This is a good idea.”


His eyes sparked with the compliment, but his words surprised me. “You shouldn’t say that.”


That look was back, the one that had gotten me into so much trouble last night. One part confident, sexy man, two parts vulnerable and open.


“Say what?” I whispered.




“But you are a chef.”


His jaw ticked. Anger, I thought immediately. But it wasn’t. It was something else. And now it had me questioning every single time I’d seen it before. “And I like it far too much when you remind me.”


I laughed a breathy, girly sound. I couldn’t help it. Now he was flirting with me? Opening up to me? Sharing his plans for the future with me?


“Wyatt, what are you doing?”


His Adam’s apple bobbed up and down as he struggled to swallow. My eyes tracked every second of it.


“I’m trying not to kiss you, Kaya. I thought that was obvious.”


Now it was my turn to nearly choke on my tongue. “You’re ridiculous.”


“You’re beautiful.”

Up To You – Daisy Prescott

Up To You
Love With Altitude #4
Daisy Prescott
10th June 2018

(Love with Altitude, #4) by Daisy Prescott is now live!
Book Blurb:

I’m the last single woman among my friends. Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m fine with flying solo, especially with ski season right around the corner. You won’t hear me complaining. Until my mother decides I need a date for my cousin’s wedding … and chooses the worst man in the world for me.

Landon Roberts is the human equivalent of a parka with every ski pass he’s ever purchased hanging off of his zipper. Apparently my mother is the last person in Colorado to know about Landon’s reputation.

To make things worse, his super hot brother Aiden’s back in town. Still gorgeous and still not remotely interested in me.

I can survive this wedding disaster as long as I pretend my date is someone else.


As one of the stars of Aspen’s rugby club, I don’t need help meeting women. Tell that to my mother. She’s picked out my date for the biggest wedding of the year.

Mae London is the local girl who broke every heart in the valley before she left for California. Now she’s back and hotter than ever. Too bad she hates me.

Enlisting the help of my brother, I’m going to become the ideal man, and charm Mae right out of her bad opinion of me.

This wedding date will be perfect as long as I pretend to be someone else.


REVIEW – Daisy Prescott writes fun romance book, this one does contain a love triangle but it i done well enough that you are not at all too conflicted with the triangle. In fact you firmly know who you want Mae to end up with. This book gives you laughs and smiles and a fun filled ride at a wedding that is not even out heroines yet.  Well worth a read

Publisher: Pocket Star
The New
York Times 
bestselling author of the “swoonworthy and addicting” (Kim
Karr, New York Times bestselling author) Wind Dragons
Motorcycle Club series is back with more bad boy bikers in this first novel in
the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series.

Erin Dawson had the perfect life growing up in a perfect home with a
perfect family. Her parents gave her and her sister everything a child could
want. But after learning that the man she’s called “dad” her whole life isn’t
actually her biological father, Erin is determined to find the man who is.

Armed with her original birth certificate, she finds her father, but begins
questioning if her mom had been right all along to keep this information
buried. It turns out he is the president of a motorcycle club, which could not
be further from the life Erin leads. But, she’s determined to get to know the
man who she gets her striking blue eyes from. Despite getting what she wants
and finding her biological father, it’s the slightly older, much rougher but
incredibly sexy biker Ace that catches Erin’s eye.

As the new “princess” of the Cursed Ravens, Erin is learning a whole new
world, but her father has made it clear she is off limits. Will Ace follow his
President’s orders or will he put his heart ahead of his duty? A sizzling tale
of family and passion, Ace of Hearts features Fernando’s
signature “snark and sass” (Booklist) and is perfect for fans of Kristin

REVIEW- I am a big fan of Chantal Fernando, her MC club books are addictive. So when i heard of this new series coming out i had to read it. A hot and addictive tale of finding out your true family and meeting a hot ass biker on the way. Ace is the sort of biker man i crave, alpha but sensitive if needed but protective and sexy and wanting to claim his woman – but when that woman is off limits all bets are off for Ace if h can keep his hands and mind to himself concerning Erin. I liked Erin i could most certainly feel her need to find out her true roots even if they where partly settled in an MC club. Romance ,some suspense and a swoon worthy alpha male in an MC club i want ot read more of the men there please Chantal 🙂

Dagger In The Sea – Cat Porter

Dagger In The Sea
Cat Porter
6th June 2018




“The velvet tongue”
That’s what they hear
“The silent fixer”
That’s what they whisper
“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”
It’s been known to happen
But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed.
It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.
I may be the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve
been warned,
and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the
world to do it.
Until one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a
blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane,
snaring us in the ultimate high stakes games
Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths,
explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls
I was always told that actions speak louder than words,
and Adriana proved it to me.
Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—
In my heart, on my hands.
Blood never lies, blood never plays games.
And neither do I.
REVIEW – I am still a relatively new reader of Cat’s work, but boy do i love it. Her characters are always so engaging but with this character development through the story and the romance she always manages to add a slice of danger to keep the reader on their toes.Mafia books are not really my style, but after reading this i am wanting to try more. I love how the mans world got knocked on a serious axis by the female lead, as sometimes we normally hear more about it all changing for the woman. But for Turo meeting Adriana means a whole lot is going to change for them both!!
