Kiss the Bride Anthology:
I always enjoy an anthology because by the time I've read just one book, I get three stories by different authors in less time. I couldn't keep the smile from my face and the stories were light, sweet and heartwarming, but over much too soon. The sex scenes were mild, but sensual. Overall, this book is a delight to read!
Early Bird Special by Deirdre Martin:
An adorable warm, sweetly romantic read I really enjoyed. It's well written and easy to relate to. It's always cute (when you're reading it) to see family members try to fix their loved ones up on dates. There's the awkward first date and there always seems to be some unfortunate incident to mess everything up. It was funny and quite charming and ended much too quickly!
Dana comes to visit her grandparents and token aunt in their retirement village in Florida. Of course, right away they want to fix her up with a Landscape Architect. Oh no, all that dirt and isn't he just a glorified gardener? Josh gets irritated because she won't even show him any respect just because he's got a little dirt on him. They go out on one date to please everyone and then go about their own lives, keeping busy with work. Now the grandparents up their efforts to get them together again.
Weddings, Ink. by Christie Ridgway:
Oh, I love it! This story is fun, fun, fun and you won't want to miss it! All the characters are great and their interaction makes the story entertaining and complete…oh, along with the yummy sex! This story will warm you up and make you laugh…a combination you won't be able to resist. This is a story of second chances and is just plain cute.
Charlotte is thrust into close proximity of her ex-boyfriend and things don't always go peacefully. She's been hired to write the wedding vows for Luke's brother's fiance (wow, you have to think on that one for a moment). Now she has to hang out with the wedding party to get to know Luke's brother. Things go awry and Luke and Charlotte end up in the same room for the weekend.
All's Fair in Love and Chocolate by Laura Florand:
This is my first story by Ms. Florand and I really enjoyed it. By the time you're done you'll be craving chocolate like I was! I liked the characters, their chocolate adventures and all the fun. Paris, with chocolate, is the perfect setting to go along with romance and Ms. Florand does well with it. I look forward to reading much, much more in the near future!
