A tale as old as time: she needs a place to stay, he’s a grump with a secret and an extra room…can love find a way?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places – the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom?

mythoughts

Belle lives with her father and they both share love for books. Belle’s father doesn’t approve her new friends and when he kicks her out, she goes to live at the library, where she works. The library is struggling and the board may have to close it, so Belle knows she has to start doing the dancing as well to save the library. Beast doesn’t like Belle living in the library and invites her to his house as a guest and lays down the house rules. There’s been attraction between the two, but a shy librarian and a gruff Beast didn’t make a move before they were actually living together, which meant more time spent together. 

It’s the second book in the series and it’s my favorite, I really liked Belle and the romance blossoming between her and Beast. It was an entertaining, sweet and funny book.

mythoughts

Brenda wants to put a rare book on auction to raise money for the museum, but somebody doesn’t like that and Brenda starts receiving threats and told to burn the book or else…? She decided to not follow the threat and goes to a sheriff’s office, where deputy Dwight starts to deal with the situation. Dwight starts to protect Brenda and figuring out who is behind it all. The case gets more and more serious and the attraction between Dwight and Brenda deepens along the way. 

I just love this series, each book is so intense that you can’t put the book down. I have yet to read two other books in the series and as each book has its own mystery there’s a mystery that has had a big role throughout the series and will be solved in the final book. I highly recommend this series to anybody who likes mystery and suspense books.

blurb

From USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle, Dear Santa is a heartwarming Christmas story about finding your passion for life and love.

Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third-generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered over sixty tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive.

Encouraged by her niece to ask Santa for help through the Dear Santa app, Angela gives in and lets the words fly in a way that, if Santa were real, would no doubt land her on the naughty list. What’s the harm when it’s just a computer-generated response?

Geoff Paisley has been at his mother’s side running the mega-chain Christmas Galore for the last ten years. When his mother falls ill, Geoff promises to answer the Dear Santa letters in her stead. Soon he realizes the woman he’s been corresponding with on Dear Santa is Angela. How could the woman that grates his every last nerve in person have intrigued him so deeply through those letters?

When Geoff reveals that he’s her Dear Santa, will Angela be able to set aside their very public feud to embrace the magic of the holiday and possibly find true love?

ARCREVIEW  holiday

Angela owns and runs a holiday store called Heart of Christmas, it’s been in their family for generations and she wants to continue with that, but unfortunately the store is doing very well and she might have to close it. There’s also a new store in town called Christmas Galore, where things are sold cheaper and it attracts more people in. The new store is owned by Geoff and his mom. Geoff’s mom answers to Santa letters via e-mail, but when she falls ill, Geoff answers them himself. Angela’s niece convinced her to use the app and she writes to Santa as well. At first they don’t know who the other is, but when it comes out, will they have a chance for love?

It was a sweet holiday novel, I adored those Santa letters at the beginning of the chapters. It was a well written story with great characters and I’d recommend it for people who like holiday contemporary romances.

blurb

There’s a pub in New York City that’s been in the Finnegan family for generations. Now Kieran and her three brothers own it. Kieran Finnegan is also, as it happens, a criminal psychologist—a fitting reaction, perhaps, to her less-than-lawful teenage past.

Meanwhile, New York’s Diamond District has been hit by a rash of thefts. No one’s been killed—until now. FBI agent Craig Frasier is brought in to investigate; he and Kieran meet at a jewelry store in the middle of a heist. She’s there to “unsteal” a flawless stone taken by her light-fingered youngest brother as an act of vengeance. Craig’s there to stop the gang.

But the police and FBI begin to wonder if there are two gangs of diamond thieves, the original and a copycat group of killers—who seem to think their scheme is as flawless as the stones they steal.

Thrown together by circumstance, drawn together by attraction, Kieran and Craig are both assigned to the case. But to Kieran’s horror, there’s more and more evidence that, somehow, the pub is involved. Because everyone goes to Finnegan’s…

mythoughts

Kieran Finnegan is a criminal psychologist, but she also works at a pub, which has been in the Finnegan family for generations. Kieran’s brother stole a diamond to help their friend Julie get a revenge on her ex. When Kieran found out what they did, she decided to take the diamond back, without anyone noticing, but while she was at the jewellery shop a robbery happens and Craig rescues her from the van that wanted to kidnap her. It turned out that there are actually two different gangs that rob the jewellery shops and Graig asks Kieran’s help to catch the real gang that is more dangerous than the first one. 

It was my first book by Heather Graham and I really enjoyed it, I want to try her other series called Krewe of Hunters too. I liked the Romantic Suspense book, but I’m also curious about the paranormal series. It was a great book, it had a lot of action and suspense and some romance as well. I found the cast of characters likeable and will definitely want to read more of this series.
