They took away his wife and his memories. Now he wants them back. Kingston West put his military service behind him much easier than most of the men he served with during the final war. As far as he was concerned, the cyborg who was Kingston 691 no longer existed. And the Cyber Husband program? He viewed it like he viewed having been a prisoner of war. Both were just service related memories he didn’t plan on recalling. The future was all he needed. At least he felt that way until he discovered one wife’s file had been totally erased from his Cyber Husband records. Only her name remained in data storage, though her family swore they’d had a loving relationship.  To put the past completely behind him, King has to first find the now missing Seetha Harrington. Before he can enjoy his new beginning, he needs to find out why Norton took those seven years together away from both of them.

Wow Kingston 691 is an amazing addition to the Cyborgs: Mankind Redefined series. Don’t get me wrong Peyton and Kyra’s story was amazing but Kingston stole Peyton’s thunder. *grins*

Seetha Harrington was once lucky enough to have loved and lived well, that was until her life took a change. King is charming, thoughtful and a wonderful cook and not bad to look at either. *grins* Both are strong characters, Seetha surprised me by being so in-tuned to who she was. A perfect match up.

Can King or Seetha be able to get passed King’s swiped memory issues of his and Seetha’s previous relationship? When you love so deep is there a chance the flame is still alive? Ms. McDonald put King and Seetha through some challenges. I loved the witty and at times sarcastic humor that Seetha, King and the members of the team share.

The supporting characters were fun, but gave the leading couple structure when needed. I could not help but laugh with them all as they gave King a hard time. I am on to Marcus’s book, I can’t wait to red what Ms. McDonald does with him.

The plot was interesting enough to have me reading non-stop cover to cover. Ms. McDonald does cyborg romance beautifully, I enjoyed to continuation of the characters. I never felt that I needed to reread to recap on characters. Kingston 691 was so entertaining I would recommend this series to everyone.

4 Stars
This time, he'll need to hit all the right notes to win the woman he's always loved... Wade Bennett is used to coming in second to his seemingly perfect older brother. In high school, Colt was a star linebacker while Wade was the punter, an important job without all of the glory. When Charlene Martinez-the only girl Wade ever truly wanted-fell for Colt, Wade decided to take his chances with music and went on the road. Leaving behind his family, his best friend, Rafe, and Charlene, who had feelings for Wade she never allowed herself to feel. Years in Nashville quickly hardened the dreamy guy who just wanted to sing and hang out with his dog, Melody. His success has given him more than enough money, even if he knows he'll never be able to compete with his hometown hero big brother. But after Coach Carr's heart attack, Wade comes home to help the man who helped him make the decision to chase his dreams all those years ago. Now Wade wants to chase a new dream in his old hometown, especially since Charlene is single again after divorcing Colt. And Wade is no longer a boy unwilling to fight for what-and who-he needs.
(Website, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads)

Sweet Lord Wade is temptation on a stick, its a wonder any woman can gather her thoughts when Wade is staring in some incredible dreams.

Wade is coming home to claim what he has always wanted. The only thing stopping him from achieving his goal is her. Wade’s passion is felt through every word, his love is abundantly clear. Can that be enough?

Charlene is in over her head. Being in love with a man she has no future in being with. Being married to and divorcing the wrong Bennett. Now the man who holds her heart returns. I adore Charlene, her spunkiness, strength and heart.

Wade and Charlene create their own special kind of chemistry. Their passion for each other runs deep. Ms. Quinn made it impossible not to feel every emotion Wade and Charlene felt. Of course in Quinn, Texas your secrets never stay quiet for long.

The supporting characters Coach and Colt who were amazing and gave the main characters a nice boost. The plot had a nice homey feeling, with a lot of heart even though it felt like a love triangle at times the story smoothed out for me. By far Going Long by Cari Quinn is a hot spicy fun read and a superb start to the Boys of Fall series.

Phoebe Sherwood is in love with the perfect man.  Well, except for the fact that he’s in love with someone else.  But Phoebe isn’t the type to let a little detail like that keep her from getting what she wants. And as she’s plotting how to get him back, she meets the perfect solution—Joe Spencer. The city boy is in town to retrieve his sort-of fiancé—the woman who stole Phoebe’s man— and when he hears Phoebe’s plan to reclaim their respective soul mates, he’s inBright and sparkly. That’s Joe’s first impression of Phoebe.  He’s always been attracted to sparkly things—like neon casino signs, sequined evening gowns and Porsches. In fact, his affinity for those things, and the trouble they can cause, are exactly why he’s determined to change his habits and settle down. But if he’s going to win his girl back, he’s going to need to learn a new way of life. Country line dancing, guzzling homemade moonshine and getting rid of his custom-made suits are what it takes to fit into Sapphire Falls… and he’s got some work to do.But Phoebe is the perfect coach. And everything will be just fine… as long as they can keep their hands off of each other and remember which hearts they are trying to win over.

Erin Nicholas Oh. My. God! Could you make Sapphire Falls any more sexy! Getting Worked Up is thee perfect title for Joe and Phoebe’s story.

Joe is sexy as hell and he knows it, but what surprised me is that he is passionate and caring as well. Joe is on his way to claim his woman or so he thought. Who would have thought that one sassy red head could change all his plans.

Phoebe is amazingly F.U.N! I laughed, cried and sighed so much with her I felt a kin ship. Thank you Ms. Nicholas for Phoebe and her sparkle. Phoebe had one thing on her mind after waiting three years for Matt, and that was purposing in a grand gesture, oh but things go south when Joe blows into town.

Things are about to get interesting!

Joe and Phoebe are delectable and addicting so much so I could not stop reading. Phoebe is sass and flash, Joe is a man slut trying to change his ways when their worlds crash in the back of Phoebe’s truck with a homemade bottle of wine some sweet kisses. Now that they have a taste of unbridled passion is it possible to down grade to simple vanilla?

Supporting characters were as enchanting as ever, Sapphire Falls is looking more inviting as ever. I enjoy being able to connect with characters from book #1 as well as getting to know some new faces. One thing is for sure they made life interesting for Joe and Phoebe. *snicker*

I am so excited after finishing Getting Worked Up because the plot was stellar and it was everything one wants in a romance. Witty dialog, strong characters, small town with a lot of heart. All the things Erin Nicholas does brilliantly.

About Erin Nicholas

RTphoto2

I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.

I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.

But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.

I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.

The_Alpha_Match_by_Leigh_Archer-500

English conservationist, Caro Hannah, and South African, Ben Duval, must work together to introduce endangered African wild dogs to a game reserve four years after their love affair ended. The challenges of their profession pale into insignificance beside the personal obstacles they must overcome to either bring closure to the events of four years before, or reignite a passion hot enough to burn up the African bush.

The Alpha Match is the first in a series set in the African bush where luxury tented camps and romantic hideaways are havens for royals, celebrities and the adventurous at heart. The Untamed Safari Series places unforgettable men and women in this captivating setting and holds its breath as they play out their passions. Moonflower, book #2 in the series has just become available for pre-launch order – Moonflower.

After dinner they sipped coffee and Amarula cream as the sounds of the bushveld formed a mellow soundtrack to the group’s relaxed conversation. A group of traditional dancers arrived to entertain them, stamping bare feet against the hard baked earth, gyrating to the sound of large, hide-covered drums.

Ben leaned towards Caro, his arm touching hers. She felt his breath against her neck, and his aftershave mingled with the smell of wood fire and warm night air.‘A group from the local community. They make a living entertaining guests around the reserve.’

Caro nodded, feeling a delicious light-headedness. A sensory intoxication. It was the wine, sumptuous food, the flames leaping into the air, the thump of the drums and the heat of Ben’s arm against hers.

She tried to focus on the sweating dancers who were leaping, gyrating and passing like shadows in front of the flames. The pulse of the drums throbbed deep in her belly. Her gaze slid to Ben’s thighs that disappeared beneath the tablecloth and the manly bulge above them. She longed to touch him. Wanted him so badly. Her entire body ached and pulsed with the rhythm of desire. Sweat oozed from her pores and trickled between her breasts.

The thought of giving in to her senses left her breathless. She imagined throwing herself against his powerful chest. Pressing herself to him, hips to hips, chest to chest, his heart pounding against her taut and tender nipples. The sensation of liquid desire as his mouth closed over hers: hot, moist, tingling. If only her body didn’t remember. That was the worst of it. It wasn’t just a fantasy—she remembered.

Without pre-meditation, Caro stood up hurriedly, before it was too late. ‘Time I turned in for the night,’ she managed; her voice only slightly strained to her ears.

Ben got quickly to his feet. ‘I’ll walk you to your room.’

‘No, please… you don’t have to do that.’

‘I’ll see you to your door,’ he insisted.

Caro groaned inwardly. He was making this so difficult. ‘Suit yourself,’ she said and walked from the boma, tossing a ‘good night everyone’ over her shoulder, deliberately not looking in Ben’s direction.
