Reviewed by Helen

MS Hayward is a fabulous author who writes stories that sizzle with sensual desire but with emotions that bring her characters to life, make them people who are friends and this one is a beauty of a story set in New York at Christmas time with a heroine Chloe Russo who is so strong but shy and hero Nico Di Fiore who needs to be in control and when they get together the atmosphere sizzles.

Chloe is a talented perfumer and is now running the family business after the death of her parents, so when she is ordered back to New York and needs to get on with the job she is dreading it, not only because she does not like coping with the media but it is going to bring her close to CEO Nico whom she has held a torch for since she was eighteen. With the launch of her new perfumes coming up for Christmas tensions are on the edge all round.

Nico was left in charge of Evolution when his mentor Martino Russo passed away and he runs a tight ship and Chloe needs to get back from Paris for the company the launch must be perfect and nothing is going to get in his way but he is having a bit of a hard time keeping his mind on the job and off Chloe, as far as he is concerned he cannot give her what she needs and wants it is not in him, but one kiss and things are heating up.

I truly loved this story it had me turning the pages, I loved Nico such an alpha hero for all of the right reasons and Chloe she shows such strength and love, it is a fast paced, moving story, I loved the setting, the characters and the journey to such a gorgeous HEA. This is a fabulous story that I highly recommend, you can easily get yourself lost in this one. Thank you MS Hayward for another keeper, and I look forward to Santo and Lazzero’s stories.

But there are lies and cover ups that blow everything up, but not for long you see Rio soon realizes that he cannot live without Tilly.

This is a fabulous story I loved both Rio and Tilly, both so strong and loving, the pages nearly burn up with their sensual spark and the openness they both draw from each other, this one will have you just sighing and smiling, the setting wow I want to go to this island Prim’amore of course being with Rio would be nice but he is definitely Tilly’s. Thank you MS Connelly for hours a reading pleasure.

Oh WOW what a fun story this one is, it had me laughing out loud so many times but also just sighing as two people who are so very different come together in a sensual exciting and beautiful way. Although neighbours they are not over friendly that is until they are bought together when a special package McKenna Prescott orders online is delivered to the gorgeous Beckett Walsh’s apartment.

McKenna is a make-up artist who works in a department store but really wants to run her own business, so when she is dumped by her boyfriend (oh she is so good at choosing the wrong guys) that she has decided to think about herself so self-loving is what her life is going to be from now on no men. But when her special package is delivered to her neighbours place, getting it back starts a new chapter in her life.

Beckett is a quiet IT geek and a workaholic he is a family man and is always responsible but when he is dumped by his fiancé and this leaves his new project hanging in the balance, he is not thinking when he opens up a package that is delivered to him and what a shock he gets when he opens it, but this package is going to change his life in such a good way.

I really loved this story Beckett and McKenna are so very different in their personalities although they both have issues with their families, but are both so good for each other the sensual sizzle between them is hot but of course there are ups and downs Beckett needs to get back with his fiancĂ© so cannot possible fall in love with McKenna and McKenna has sworn of men remember it is all about self-loving, but cupid doesn’t work that way and these two end up with a fabulous HEA that left me feeling joy and happiness, I highly recommend this one a fun and sexy story.

I love Christmas stories at this time of the year and this one is fabulous the setting is just amazing with some of it set in the land of Christmas Lapland, this one brings to the reader all of the feels for a true romance a story of second chance love but not before they cross a few hurdles I loved getting to know paediatrician Lucas Brodie and nurse Freya and the past they had to get over for their true HEA.

Freya was a woman who loved Christmas it had been such a big part of her life and the first Christmas with her gorgeous husband Lucas was sure to be awesome, but sadly that is not so when he walks out on her, devastated Freya gets on with her life and the following Christmas she volunteers to take sick children on the trip of a lifetime to Lapland but is stunned when Lucas arrives for the trip as well, could this trip change her life?

Luca had so many demons in his life that the thought of having a family was too much for him he feared being like his father and could do nothing but walk out on the love of his life Freya he was not good enough for her. Nearly a year later and he is much better and ready to start his life again and this trip to Lapland maybe just the starting point especially seeing that Freya is on the trip.

I loved seeing Freya and Lucas meet again and rekindle that love that had never left either of them but the issues that needed to be overcome would be with caring and more love and having a family that would unite them forever. This one is beautifully written it was a joy to read MS Baine brings her characters to life on the pages and had me sighing and smiling thank you for a fabulous story this one ticks the boxes for a true romance that I highly recommend.

This is a beautiful story of second chance love there were so many misunderstandings and time apart that played a big part in their breakup, both are now older and that spark that had been there before is still there with a passion. I loved Jack he is a fabulous hero and just what Celie wanted back in her life, even if it took her a bit to realize. I loved the romantic journey that bought them back together the setting the sensual pull had me sighing, I can highly recommend this story. This series has been fabulous but I would love to see Nico get his HEA. Thank you for a fabulous story MS McAllister.

Who doesn’t love being swept of their feet by a gorgeous hero a Count no less, although Fredrik comes across a bit abrupt in the beginning and he has his reasons to be this way, he soon turns around when the right heroine is there to get him to open up when the sizzle between them could light up the village and of course he is forever the perfect gentleman and he does wonders for Ally.

Ally Parker is a journalist who has lost her job and is doing what she can to keep her head above water, so when her best friend asks her to step in and do the PR work for her up -coming wedding to a Prince Ally is thrilled but of course that means that she has to pass muster with the head of the royal security first and seeing as how there is a definite spark between them this could be a bit tricky.

Count Fredrik Jensson is not overly impressed about the person Holly has asked to do the wedding PR when he checks her out that is his job after all and he does not trust her from the start, but neither is he happy about the protective feelings he has for her at their first meeting which doesn’t go to way he thinks it should, he is quite taken with that kiss.

Ally and Fredrik have a few things from their past that need to be sorted and with their trip to Fredrik’s home of San Michele they get sorted pretty quickly with a lovely sensual trip to the mountains. Fredrik runs a bit hot and cold during their journey to a HEA with Ally’s past being brought back into the limelight and secrets being released about the wedding but it doesn’t take long before the warmth is back in a good way, this is a lovely story that had me smiling true love wins in the end in a beautiful finish, I can highly recommend this one especially if like me you love royal weddings.
