Book Challenge - 54 - 56

Had some thought about doing a deep and meaningful blog but now, can't be bothered. Maybe tomorrow LOL

So I'll just go for a boring old book review blog. I will become more enlightening one day, well I hope too. Hope to have scads of people signing on just to read my pearls of wisdom.

Hmm been at this almost a year and so far haven't had too many 'pearls' and don't have scads of people coming to read. LOL One can dream can't they???

But anyway onto the reviews.

Book 54 – Sale or Return Bride by Sarah Morgan – Presents/Modern/Sexy

This was a great, great book. I loved it. It reminded me of why I totally, totally love Presents.

We had Sebastien who is our Greek Alpha Hero and we have Alesia who is our strong heroine.

Alesia’s grandfather, Dimitrios, blackmails her into marrying Sebastien. She needs money for her mother’s surgery and Dimitrios will give Sebastien back his family company. Sebastien believes there is more to this than meets the eye and only agrees to marry Alesia if he thinks she is attractive.

Dimitrios has disowned Alesia and her mother since his son has died, over 15 years ago.

Alesia is a fiery character that after a few drinks her tongue gets loosened and slips a couple of things out.

I don’t know what it was about this book but I just loved it. Whether it was because it was a marriage of convenience or Sebastien was a real Alpha but I just LOVED it. There was something in this book that truly spoke to me. Might have to pick it apart to find its little secrets.

Definitely going to be a keeper for me. It was released in the US in November last year.

Book 55 – Their High Stakes Affair by Katherine Garbera – Desire

This book is the second in Katherine’s series. I did enjoy it but life has been getting in the way lately and I just haven’t had time to do much reading. Grrrr

This story is about Scott and Raine. Raine is a tv producer and Scott is a player in a Celebrity Poker Challenge show being held at Hayden’s Las Vegas Casino hotel. Hayden was the hero in our first story. Celebrity poker shows must be all the rage.

Scott makes a bet with a fellow player that he will be able to bed Raine. Raine overhears this conversation and figures she’ll make Scott fall for her and then dump him.

Of course the plans get waylaid and they end up falling for each other. The bet comes out and Raine loses her job.

Scott has found true love and does all in his power to make Raine realise that what they share is true and real.

A nice story and one I would have finished in a quicker amount of time if only I had more time!!

Book 56 – Million-Dollar Love-Child by Sarah Morgan – Sexy/Presents/Modern

After being blown away by one of Sarah’s books I opened this with anticipation. This book is about Kimberley and Luc (love the way that is spelt possibly because my H’s name is spelt that way in my MS). Anyway they had a torrid but brief affair 7 years ago.

Kimberley turns up at Luc’s office wanting money, he in turns finds that he is still very much attracted to her and says he will give her the money if she stays with him for 2 weeks. Kimberley needs the money desperately because her son’s life is at risk, Luc’s son but he doesn’t believe her.

I did enjoy this story but not as much as her other one I recently read. Still a lot of powerful writing and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for her books in future.
