Leo on Fire (FBI Files #2) by Patricia Logan Release Date: November 25, 2022 About Leo on Fire Some days, fighting crime just doesn’t pay. FBI Profiler, Leo Reeves, has settled into his new job and his new life in Los Angeles. Working with Max Prince every day in the office is fulfilling but not as satisfying as burning up the sheets with him every night at home. Their first case together as partners resulted in the bad guys either behind bars or six feet under, but neither man thinks they’ve put an end to the murderous ring. As time goes on, and they interview the ones they did manage to arrest, the agents realize a much larger organization is at work. Could a criminal mastermind be controlling multiple cells of murderers? When one of their team is gunned down in a senseless mass shooting, Leo and Max are fueled by a new motive…rage. As more of the corpses from their first case are identified, new information about the kidnapping ring begins to emerge. When they realize cop

Scrooge-ish by L.B. Dunbar Release Date: November 22, 2022 About Scrooge-ish I hate Christmas. I don’t know who thought every female must love shopping, wrapping, baking and hosting but I missed the memo. On top of that, I manage an upscale department store. Sprinkle in the fact I’ll be turning forty during this holiday season, and my life is a Christmas cookie recipe gone wrong. And every year I become a little more Scrooge-ish.  But the spirit of the most wonderful time of the year <insert sarcasm> seems to have a plan for me and my midlife-crisis attitude. First, my past returns when I attend a high school reunion happy hour and run into that boy—the one I had a summer fling before I left for college, then promptly ghosted me. The torture continues because that boy is now a man, worldly and wise and sexier than I remember. And he invites me to attend a holiday work party with him. That’s where I learn this forty, fine, former NFL quarterback, now fireman has a new role: s

Review: Scrooge-ish by L.B. Dunbar

Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author. Time and distance changes everything. Our experience now is two strangers. It's been a while since I've added a holiday romance to my list of year-end top reads, but the time has finally come for me to do exactly that with Scrooge-ish ! L.B. Dunbar delivers a heartwarming story about second chances, moving forward, and the magic of Christmas. Forty-year-old Eva Nazar hates Christmas, and working as a manager at Ashford's, an upscale department store, leading up to and during the holidays means she can't escape the decorations, music, and everything Christmassy. Her life, though, is all about work, so when she learns about her class's twenty-second high school reunion, she isn't exactly itching to attend. But at the last minute, she changes her mind, and it's at the venue where she bumps into Zebb Scroggs--the boy she fell for the summer after graduation, and the same one who ghosted her afterward

Igniting Vic (Police and Fire: Operation Alpha; On Call #8) by Freya Barker Release Date: November 22, 2022 Aces Press About Igniting Vic Victoria “Vic” Paige thought she was firmly back in the saddle since returning to her job as a firefighter after a three-year hiatus.

Review: Igniting Vic by Freya Barker (Police and Fire: Operation Alpha; On Call #8)

Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Buoni Amici Press. Igniting Vic  is the eighth book in the On Call romantic suspense series, which is part of the Police and Fire: Operation Alpha  book universe from bestselling author Susan Stoker's Aces Press, from Freya Barker. I haven't had the opportunity to read any of the seven previous books in the said series, but that didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of the story in this newly published novel, nor did I feel like I was lost in any way, shape, or form. That being said, I confess that now I find myself extremely curious, and have the first seven titles, all of which are in Kindle Unlimited, on my never-ending to-be-read list. When firefighter Victoria Paige finds a corpse that's been tied up and burnt on a bed at a scene she and her crew are sent to, she knows she will never be able to get that image out of her head. William Evans is the first detective to arrive, and he provides s

Review: Tempt by Melanie Harlow (Cloverleigh Farms: Next Generation #4)

Image
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author. Tempt  is the fourth AND final book in the Cloverleigh Farms: Next Generation  series, and I'm feeling all bittersweet about it. I know all good things have to come to an end, and maybe I was a wee bit overly hopeful everyone in this generation of Cloverleigh Farms would get a book; alas, 'twas not meant to be. Still, Melanie Harlow does not disappoint with the story of thirty-two-year-old Millie Rose MacAllister, the oldest daughter of Mac MacAllister ( Irresistible , book one of the Cloverleigh Farms  series) and stepdaughter to Frannie MacAllister née Sawyer. When forty-seven-year-old Zachary Barrett rescues her from a jerk hitting on her at a Manhattan bar, she knew it was to be nothing more than a hook-up, neither of them making promises or asking for more time together. Then a week later, their paths cross again in Michigan--at the rehearsal dinner of her ex-boyfriend who just happens to be the son Zach di
