Blurb - Coastal

Event planner Sage Wilde has lots of lists and no time for a relationship… 

Precise to a fault, Sage plans everything—meetings, meals, and sex. But when she learns her youngest sister can’t carry a child, she steps up and commits to the role of a surrogate mother. It’s not out of sentiment, because Sage doesn’t do love or touchy-feely, but out of practicality. She doesn’t plan on marrying or having children, so why not rent out her unused space, right? 

Luke Riley is a sexy firefighter who’s looking for love in all the wrong places… 

Luke’s morning gets a little brighter when he’s called to a clinic and spots a blonde beauty wearing killer red boots. Though she doesn’t seem interested, he manages to introduce himself. It’s unusual for a woman to push away his advances, but Luke is attracted to her confident nature and strong personality. It’s not long before he wears her down, and she finally agrees to a date. 

Who says you can’t mix work with pleasure? 

Sage blames her growing affections for Luke on pregnancy hormones. But one last hurrah before her belly swells sounds like a well-deserved thrill. After a few passionate nights, the line between love and lust begins to blur—leaving her more confused than ever. 

Luke is mesmerized by her keen wit and social charm. She may claim not to want children, but when she befriends his troubled foster sister, it proves there’s a heart inside of Sage waiting to be loved. 

Will Sage’s surrogacy unlock her willingness to commit? Or will Luke stand by as the woman he loves plans a future without him?

Release Day Spotlight and 5* Review: Then Came You – Marianne Rice -The Wilde Sisters#2

Title: THEN CAME YOU
Author: Marianne Rice
Series: The Wilde Sisters, Book #2
Blurb - Flower

Thyme Wilde doesn’t make long-term decisions—until she falls in love with one… 

 Easily bored and quickly distracted, Thyme enjoys her freedom, so being a temp at her sister’s company is the perfect job. But when she takes a position as a nanny, she instantly falls in love with the five-year-old princess named Maddie—and just two months later, Maddie’s parents are killed in a plane crash, leaving Thyme in an unfamiliar role of responsibility. 

Multi-millionaire architect Grayson Montgomery lives in the lap of luxury—but at a cost… 

 Being the sole heir of his family’s fashion empire and his father’s architectural firm, Grayson has never lacked for anything. But in return, he must stay subservient to the matriarch of his family—his grandmother—and date the heiress of their largest business partner. The only freedom Grayson has is his architectural designs, which are his true passion. 

 One day changes Grayson’s future forever… 

 A lawyer summons Grayson to Maine for the reading of the will of a woman he once knew. He doesn’t expect to be named the father of a five-year-old orphan. Then he meets his newly-discovered daughter—and her incredibly sexy nanny. 

 While acting as Maddie’s loyal nanny, Thyme develops feelings for her new employer that are more than professional. And after several passionate nights with Grayson, it’s clear the feeling is mutual. 

 When it’s made evident Grayson sees her as a convenient placeholder, Thyme must push aside her desires and put Maddie above herself—even if it means sacrificing her heart to do it.

Flowers - My Review

The beginning of ‘Then Came You’ sets the scene for a lovely cute meet and a heart warming sensual love story, which travels beyond Maine, but retains its small town charisma and values. This is Thyme’s story and makes a great standalone read, even though it is part of a series.
Thyme the youngest and wildest of the Wilde sisters was introduced in ‘Sweet On You’ and despite her lack of responsibility, being the typical baby of the family, she is warm hearted and instantly likeable. Becoming a nanny to Maddie really changes Thyme’s outlook and helps her become the person she always wanted to be.
Intelligent, dedicated but a little stuffy, it’s only when Grayson discovers he has fathered a child, his true nature is revealed. His beyond wealthy family is only happy on the surface and his deference to his tyrannical Grandmother threatens any future happiness he may have with Maddie and Thyme.
Thyme’s character matures in this story, Grayson loses his staid image, as he realises what’s really important in life. This is a story of heartbreak, missed opportunity, dynasty but most importantly love. The ending is romantic and vivid but there is an unexpected twist that threatens the happy ever after and leaves questions posed for final book in the series, perhaps?
‘Then Came You’, is an absorbing, fun and romantic read.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

5* Review: Sweet On You – Marianne Rice- The Wilde Sisters #1

SWEET ON YOU BY MARIANNE RICE
Designed by TOJ PUBLISHING SERVICES http://www.tojpublishing.com

 

Winter Blurb

An extravagant cake design brings small town baker Trent Kipson to fame…

After gaining social media exposure of his culinary art, Trent’s cake design goes viral. Soon he’s contacted by the Cooking Network to host a new show in California. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for the owner of a modest shop in Portland, Maine, and the financial freedom the network offers could be the answer to all of his monetary problems.

Fitness instructor Rayne Wilde wants the life every small-town girl dreams of…

Rayne wishes for a future full of romance and the pitter-patter of little feet. She wants it all, including a white picket fence and a dog named Spot—which is exactly why she refuses to sleep with Trent, the sexy man who attends her Zumba classes. After a series of dead-end relationships, this time she really is in love. Trent is special, and the fear of letting him slip through her fingers keeps her advances at bay.

Life is waiting—all it takes is a leap of faith…

As their friendship grows and skeletons creep out of their closets, their relationship is put to the test. Stakes get higher, and the spark between them burns hotter than ever before.

Can they handle the heat when life-changing secrets are exposed, or will the fear of being burned send them on two different paths?

Teaser Winter My Review

Sweet on You (Wilde Sisters #1)

This story has all the homely charm of a small town romance with beautifully drawn characters and a picture postcard setting. Add in the glamour of a newly crowned celebrity chef – Trent Kipson, who catches the eye of fitness fanatic and aptly named Rayne Wilde and you have an engaging story you can’t put down.
The plot twists are well timed and there are more than a few surprises for Rayne and Trent.
The chemistry between Rayne and Trent sizzles from their first cute meet and it builds in a realistically satisfying way. The love scenes are hot but not graphic and fit in with the romance and gentle ethos of the story.
The supporting characters give the story its authenticity. I particularly liked Brian. Rayne’s sisterly siblings are recognisable to anyone who has sisters and you find out just enough about them to make you want to discover their stories too.
This is a lovely romantic story with plenty of angst and passion, the perfect ingredients for a cosy winter read.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
