In Gold Valley, Oregon, forbidden love just might be the sweetest…

Dane Parker traded in his trailer-park roots for glory as a bull rider. But when a serious injury sidelines him for months, it’s the first time he can’t just pull himself up by his bootstraps. The last thing he wants to deal with is sweet family friend Bea treating him like one of her wounded animals—or the unexpected attraction that suddenly flares between them.

Beatrix Leighton has loved Dane for years, while he’s always seen her as another sister. When she enlists his help to start her animal sanctuary, she thinks it will give him purpose. Instead, it brings all the desire she feels for him to the boiling point. Bea’s father taught her early on that love means loss. But could her forbidden crush turn into a love that will last a lifetime?

Bea loves every animal she meets and she spends a lot of time taking care of them nursing them back to health and for the past eight months she has taken care of Dane the man she has been in love with since she was 16 years old.

Dane was thrown from a bull and has been feeling sorry for himself since but Dane, like Bea is trying to fill a gap in his life. Bea finally has had enough of Dane and his pity party so she sets out to fix it it she and Dane may get a whole lot more than either of them expected. Bea is kinda shy and keeps to herself and her animals and Dane refuses to feel anything for anyone until they show each other a different side to life. – Reviewed by Linda

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family's scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.


Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed...

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn't believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again--until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm . . .

Talk about heat! I was getting hot flashes from the prequels. Teasing, tension and a side of oh my….

Clearly the HOT fireman stereotype is a fan favorite. I am a fan after all. So why wouldn’t I jump at the chance to meet the first and hopefully not the last handsome hero in this series.

Never having experienced the awesomeness that is a J.R. Ward book before I can say I’m a convert. I was blown away by the total package. The characters, flawed though they are, felt real. They are more than a 2D piece of placeholder. Each had their own feel. This is true in tons of stories but I felt an instant bond to Anne and her hottie.

I appreciated the story most of all. The actual meat and potatoes plot line. The story wasn’t drowning in romance (not that I ever complain) it was a perfect blend of what you wanted and needed. I appreciate that the need was to tell a story and not string together a bunch of hookups. I liked having a heroine with some seriously kick ass abilities…or should I say tendencies.

I tip my hat to you J.R. Ward. I look forward to more adventures of your creation.

Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling This Man series!

Life is good for Jesse "The Lord" Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he's in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He's in full control, just how he likes it.

But Jesse's perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury. Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman's love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn't end there. It's only just begun. Because his wife can't remember the last sixteen years of her life. That's all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her.

Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories . . . and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.

There is something absolutely captivating about the depth of Jesse’s love for Ava no matter how unreasonable this alpha male is. Jodi absolutely delivered in With This Man on a level that grapples the reader right from the start. There will be emotions that sway between tears of pain to tears of laughter and as if it wasn’t possible, tears filled with love. Needless to say, have tissues on hand.

We experience love at a level deeper than we didn’t think possible, especially after following the couple through their journey in the initial trilogy that I didn’t think possible. An absolute must read as we’re able to feel the “absolute, complete, earth-shifting universe-shaking love.”
