My Thoughts…

Perfect to get you in the holiday mood. Island romance from sweet to sensual with sexy heroes and strong heroines and colourful, vibrant settings.

Brought to carry his Heir – Jane Porter

Held captive…

When Georgia Nielson is asked to be the surrogate for an enigmatic tycoon, she can’t afford to say no. Before she realizes that she’s struck a deal with the devil, she’s trapped on his isolated Greek island, with no escape from the brooding master who stalks its shores!

Carrying his child!

Scarred by the loss of his wife, Nikos Panos’s future rests on leaving behind a legacy. But Georgia’s constant presence threatens to unleash the powerful hunger he’s kept caged for so long. If he wants defiant Georgia to submit, he must confront the demons that haunt him…

 A surrogate and a billionaire alone on a Greek Island. Angst and heartache give way to passion and understanding in this fast-paced sensual romance. Both protagonists ride the emotional rollercoaster to find happiness.

The Doctor She Left Behind – Scarlet Wilson

After five years with Doctors Without Borders, Nathan Banks is close to burnout – and a job in the stunning Whitsundays is the perfect fresh start! Until Nathan discovers his new colleague is his ex – Rachel Johnson! But could this twist of fate finally make these docs confront their past and face their future… together?

Second chance romance.  Neither wants to be in the same place, but an unexpected matchmaker and circumstances make it necessary. Nathan and Rachel, learn to forgive and move on to a future together.

A Miracle for the Baby Doctor – Meredith Webber

Conceived in paradise.

When beautiful embryologist Fran Hawthorne is offered the opportunity to work on a Pacific island for a month, she seizes the chance to escape the humiliation of her ex-husband’s betrayal. But Fran isn’t prepared for Steve Ransome, the handsome doctor heading the clinic. After years of struggling to conceive with her ex, Fran is tempted to give in to the pure passion that burns between them. Only their “temporary” fling results in her carrying the child she thought she’d never have.

A lovely romance with a medical theme. Easy reading, plenty of angst, poignancy and romance. An entertaining read, even if you’re not a medical romance fan.

His Accidental Heir – Joanne Rock

The Boss’s Baby Bargain.

When resort developer Cameron McNeill goes undercover to root out problems at his prized island property, his first discovery is the irresistible concierge, Maresa Delphine. Her business smarts are vital to his mission. But the struggling single mom could help with his personal mission, too: fulfilling the marriage terms of his grandfather’s will. Maresa is overwhelmed caring for her infant niece and tending to the demands of the resort’s sexy mystery guest. When he reveals himself as the owner, she’s thrown for a loop. But when he proposes…can she resist his brand of trouble in paradise? 

Luxury location, Sexy billionaire and a successful, family orientated heroine, who sees the good in everyone and puts her family above herself. A passionate romance but a strictly business marriage makes this a lovely read with lots of conflict and angst for  Maresa, a timely wake-up call for Cameron and thankfully a happy ever after for the reader.

Claiming His Wedding Night – Louise Fuller

“You owe me a honeymoon.” 

Addie Farrell’s marriage to casino magnate Malachi King lasted exactly one day until she discovered their love was a sham. Now, with funding for her children’s charity about to be cut, Addie must face her husband and their dangerously seductive chemistry once again 
Humiliated and frustrated after Addie’s sudden departure, Malachi seizes the chance to put the power back where it belongs: in his hands. The deal: Malachi will give her the money she desperately needs if she returns to his side and finally he will claim his long-awaited wedding night

While this is certainly a passionate story, it lacks romance, Addie and Malachi’s sexual attraction brought them together and even after five years it remains, simmering under the surface. His ‘Indecent Proposal’ offer to continue the funding for her charity if she gives him his honeymoon, is outdated. The couple’s true feelings eventually surface, and the ending is happy, but both characters are hard to empathise.

Still So Hot -Serena Bell

Your “Dating Boot Camp” Itinerary 

Day One: 

Fly to a luxurious, five-star resort in St. Barts with your personalized dating coach, Elisa Henderson. Show up on the plane with a guy you just picked up. Find out Brett Jordan isn’t just a drool-worthy hottie with a-rockin’ hard bod—he’s also a total player…and Elisa’s former best friend! 

Day Two: 

Be problematic. Disappear with a cute paparazzo. Besides, Elisa and Brett are now alone in a tropical paradise, and Elisa’s about to break the first commandment of date coaching: Thou Shall Not Sexily Ravage Your Client’s Date. Lost clients, naughty nighttime shenanigans, sleazy paparazzi… Can Elisa avoid a complete PR disaster, or is her reputation about to get the boot?

Think ‘I’m a Celebrity’ and ‘Love Island’ gone wrong and you’ll be in the zone for this sexy romance. Friends becoming lovers is the trope, and it makes easy beach reading.

Beach reading for Contemporary, Medical and Sexy Romance fans.

I received a copy of this book from Mills&Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
