Return of the Blackwell Brothers: Harlequin Heartwarming Series


I just finished this series and recommend it to anyone who enjoys heartwarming stories, second chances, romance, and family drama.

Thanks to Laurie at Cozynookbks for putting me in touch with these authors. I will definitely look for more books by these authors as well as books from the Harlequin Heartwarming line.

Rogue Vows Series

This series is made up of two short Novellas. The first is authored by Kendra Elliot and the second by Melinda Leigh. These two authors have been involved in other partner projects involving Rogue River. These are two short Romantic Suspense novels that MUST be read in order. They kept me reading until the last page, one novella after the other.
