EskieMama Reads Review: Rescuing Emily by Susan Stoker

Rescuing Emily by Susan Stoker

Renting out the apartment over his garage shouldn’t be a life-changing decision, but when Delta soldier Cormac “Fletch” Fletcher meets Emily Grant, he feels an instant connection. He can’t stand the thought of Emily and her young daughter living anywhere unsafe. Offering cheap rent is a small price to pay for their safety…and Fletch’s peace of mind. 

Being a single mother is difficult at best, but renting the extremely affordable space from Fletch makes Emily’s life a lot easier…until it doesn’t. Suddenly all the money she’s saving thanks to Fletch’s generosity is going into the hands of a blackmailer. And what little food Emily can afford goes to her daughter Annie, so the girl doesn’t go to bed hungry…leaving Emily weaker and weaker. 

When miscommunication has Emily assuming Fletch is in on the blackmail, he not only has to gain her trust, but also deal with a man holding a grudge against Fletch and his entire Delta Force team. A task made more diffi…

Cowboy Resurrection by Mia Hopkins

Ball-busting businesswoman meets no-holds-barred cowboy. He’s gonna need a longer rope.

Marketing hotshot Monica Kaur has put her big-city life on hold to help bail out her brother’s failing business. Now she’s got three months to plan and promote a rodeo, the first her tiny hometown has ever seen.

To ensure the rodeo’s success, Monica enlists a local hero, a rancher’s son who’s made a name for himself on the bull-riding circuit. Problem? She can’t stop daydreaming about the cocky bastard—and all the things she longs to do to him out behind the chutes. 

Professional bullfighter Dean MacKinnon is home helping his family while his father fights cancer. Haunted by bad memories, jaded by love, Dean finds escape in a no-strings-attached go-round with brainy, sexy Monica, whose close-knit Sikh-American family would sooner run him out of town than see her with a notorious rodeo romeo.

In private, Monica and Dean play as hard as they work. But as the rodeo d…

EskieMama Reads Review: Cowboy Valentine by Mia Hopkins

Cowboy Valentine  by Mia Hopkins

Forget chocolate and flowers. This homegrown honey is all the sweetness he craves.

Small-town life is nothing but a waiting room for eighteen-year-old honor student Corazón Gomez. Work and school leave little time for love, but with a full-ride Ivy League scholarship and a one-way ticket out of the boondocks, who needs it?

The answer appears on Valentine’s Day when her old cowboy crush ambles into the ice cream parlor where she works, inviting her to go on a late-night ride in his truck. For the first time she wavers between staying on the straight and narrow, and going off-road with the handsome heartbreaker.

After four years working on ranches all over the country, Caleb MacKinnon is back on the family farm helping out his mom and brothers while his father fights cancer. The one bright spot: smart, funny, and wickedly sexy Cora.

From the start, they both know this blazing-hot love affair can’t last. But when autumn comes and Cora has to leave for the…

EskieMama Reads Review: Fire Danger by Claire Davon

Fire Danger  by Claire Davon

All her life, a faint memory of her parents and fire has glowed at the back of Rachel Quinn's mind. With her parents long dead, there is no one to clarify what it means.

When a gorgeous winged man rescues her from a pack of werewolves, something flares to life inside Rachel. Suddenly she can see the paranormal world around her, a world unseen by mortals. And far more complicated.

When Phoenix's massive orange-and-red wings erupt from his back, he knows his Challenge-an age-old battle against his Demonos counterpart-is upon him. Heeding Rachel's cry for help adds a layer of complexity never seen in any previous Challenge.

Rachel, they discover, isn't entirely human. Like Phoenix, she commands fire. Fire calls to fire, and soon they are succumbing to a fierce attraction. As the Challenge bears down on them, though, Phoenix must discover what the Demonos has in store for mankind. If he doesn't succeed, the entire world will be swallowed u…

She s happy to burn up the sheets in a buddy-with-benefits arrangement, until a craving for a three-way sexual adventure thrusts her right back into the arms of the man she can t afford to remember.

In the heat of a fantasy come true, Naomi s resolve to keep her emotional distance weakens. But when Tynan discovers she s in potential danger, he dares her to deny he s the only man who can protect her. Ne…

EskieMama Reads Review: First Beast by Faye Avalon

First Beast  by Faye Avalon

"To protect his pack, he must guard his heart."

Lost on Bodmin Moor, twelve-year-old Talia Summers was cold, hurt and terrified, before being saved by a black panther that materialized out of the night.

Years later, Talia returns to the moor in search of that magnificent beast, but instead finds a man leading a clan of shape shifters. Yet the connection she remembers is strangely absent. She despairs of ever finding it again-until a stranger steps into her shower.

Back to claim his rightful place, Caleb McLeod's fierce attraction to his half-brother's female is tempered by the fact she's a human. Worse, a journalist. He'll not have his people's survival threatened by a human female who continually pushes the boundaries of pack rules.

His solution? Mate with her. Control her. And if his brother doesn't like it, they'll simply have to share. For now.

But suspicion and lies threaten the growing bond between Talia and Cale…

However, when a ghostly figure appears right before bullets start whizzing past her head, Kate is forced to admit she’s stumbled into a Twilight Zone of trouble.

When the tall, leggy, Grace Kelly lookalike tracks him down to give him a piece of her razor-sharp mind, he figures he deserves it. But Kate doesn’t deserve to be stalked by a shadowy serial killer with a motive that extends all the way to the Louisiana bayou and ties to a past Nolan would like to forget. Only Nolan can help Kate navigate the terrifying path that lies ah…
