13 ) Until You’re Mine

Review Website Ranks:

  • Goodreads: 10
  • Amazon: 11
  • LibraryThing: 10

Getting tangled up in fantasies about some man Joy saw maybe five or six times a year was ridiculous. And it wasn’t like Gray ever encouraged her. He remembered her name. But that was as far as it ever got. Well, except in her dreams. In real life, however, the attraction was totally one-sided. Or so she thought. Joy couldn’t believe it when her daydreams about Grayson Bennett, political consultant and heartthrob extraordinaire, seemed poised to become reality. When he noticed her – really noticed her. When he gazed at her with the same desire he’d inspired in her for years. But was sweet, small-town Joy a match for arrogant, big-city Gray, ruthless about all things – except opening his heart?

From that first look to this first kiss… All Alex could see was her long, thick, gorgeous hair. Pale smooth skin. Lips that were naturally tinted pink. Eyes that were green like sea grass. He stopped himself. His best friend Reese might be dead. But in Alex’s mind, Cassandra was still very much the man’s wife. She was out of bounds. Cassandra. The forbidden woman Alex had yearned for from the first moment he’d laid eyes on her. But she’d been married to his best friend. Now she was rebuilding his family’s bed-and-breakfast… and just might, in the process, be rebuilding his anguished heart.

Have you met Madeline Maguire? Sure have, Spike thought. I saw her last night in my dreams. As far as sexy bad boy Spike Moriarty was concerned, Madeline Maguire defined female perfection. When they’d met, she’d walked up and asked to see his tattoos as if she wasn’t the most gorgeous thing on the planet. He – a tough guy who’d make grown men run – had just about passed out. Their connection was definitely two-way… it had to be. But could he ever be the man in a million she was looking for? Surely not with the things he’d done and seen. Still, for as long as she’d let him, he’d give her whatever she wanted, whatever she needed…

And wasn’t it just her luck that the owner of that face, Nate Walker – with his rebel attitude and distaste for authority – was the chef her restaurant desperately needed, and he was staying for the summer… . And… it was a bit too tempting to let this breath of fresh air sweep her off her feet. Because all work and no play had been Frankie’s motto for much too long!

Before he knows it, he’s got a wild stallion in his empty stable and a hot-headed, heavenly-bodied rider sleeping on his couch. But can he get all three of them through the championship in one piece?

He didn’t do relationships…but amazingly, Lizzie made him want one anyway.
