A duke’s bastard son, well known for his way with women, finds himself fascinated by a penniless spinster in His Wicked Reputation, the first book in Madeline Hunter’s Wicked series. The notorious Gareth Fitzallen claims a dilapidated country property in the hope of finding the perpetrators of the large-scale art thefts occurring in the area. But he finds a distraction in his neighbor, Eva Russell. Gareth admires the gentlewoman, who is determined to hold on to her family home and give her young sister a better future. Eva can’t help but be charmed by the roguish bachelor when he decides Eva deserves some fun in her life—fun that satisfies her curiosity about sensual pleasures. They both assure themselves that their relationship will be a temporary affair, but their sizzling, fierce attraction keeps drawing them back together. Complicating matters is Gareth’s investigation and a secret Eva holds close. But are the two connected? Plot and passion come together to make this a sexy, compelling story.

As she delves deeper into this newfound supernatural world, Sherry is shocked to learn that some believe Basil is her “life mate.” Lonely Sherry finds it quite appealing that the very attractive Basil might be the one man in the world for her. But can she trust him and these allegedly immortal people? As the bad guys close in, a man from Sherry’s past returns, revealing a side of herself she never knew. Who is this new Sherry, and is she ready to be turned into a vampire and enter an immortal life with Basil? Sands expertly combines action and humor for a rollicking read.

Two brave soldiers find love in Lindsay McKenna’s Taking Fire. Marine Corps Sergeant Khat Shinwari is on a black ops mission in the rugged, dangerous mountains of Afghanistan when she saves the life of Navy SEAL Mike Tarik, who was injured in a deadly Taliban attack. As she tends to his wounds, Mike becomes intrigued by the beautiful warrior. When they return to Mike’s base, he is thrilled to find he’s been assigned as her mentor. Propelled by a deep attraction and an alignment of experiences and values, the two fall in love. But a happy ending is elusive, and relationship obstacles abound thanks to their dangerous jobs. Khat feels a deep loyalty to the Afghan people she’s been helping during the war, and she’s not sure a life in America will ever truly suit her. Readers will root for this complex heroine, scarred both inside and out, and hope she finds peace with her steadfast and loving hero. Rife with realistic conflict and spiced with danger, this is a worthy page-turner.
