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

The Legend by Donna Grant

They live to protect. They live to fight for honor and justice. They live to love the women who have captured their souls. These are the Sons of Texas, from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.

In The Legend, Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…

A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?

This is book 3 in the Sons of Texas series and finally we get Wyatt’s story!! You really need to read these books in order and you’ll be glad you did because each one if filled with Loughman yumminess! I was, also, very happy to see previous characters were also part of this book.

Callie is smart, an amazing hacker and best of all a sharp shooter…she’s bad a$$!!! Because of her family life Callie spent a good amount of time at the Loughman’s when she was younger. She became extremely attached to Orrin, the Loughman men’s dad. She doesn’t need a man in her life, or so she thought. Now she needs the Loughman men help protect her from the Saints. Can she put aside her hatred for Wyatt? She better, because her life may depend on it.

Wyatt is just as bad a$$ as Callie. He has returned to his childhood ranch with his brothers because of their father. This will probably be the most dangerous battle of his life. His father is missing, he has a price on his head, and the Saints are after Callie. Are him and his brothers ready for the sh## storm that’s about to rain down on their ranch? He better put any feelings aside he has for Callie because it could cost them both their lives.

This was such an action packed book, plus it was hot and sexy! I found it had me captivated from the beginning! Loved the characters. Although, when they were talking bioweapons, and Russians, I kinda glazed over. However, there was enough other things happening in this story that it was never too focused or made me lose interest!  – Reviewed by Judy

The third in the hilarious yet sizzling hot Hudson Valley series from New York Time and USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton.

Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.

It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.

Our friends from Bailey Falls are back. Buns is Clara Morgan’s story. It’s a fantastic story. Clara is fiercely independent. She doesn’t let anyone in. Except Natalie and Roxie. When she starts her job at the Bryant Mountain House, she doesn’t expect blue eyes and freckles. She needs to resist her attraction to Archie. She’s not staying in Bailey Falls.
I haven’t read a book by Alice Clayton that I didn’t love. This series is fantastically written. This group of friend’s have become family and the strength in them is unbreakable.
Told in Clara’ s POV, this book is full of laughter, friendship, and hot steamy love scenes. Can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the series in order. – Reviewed by Christina


They say it’s the quiet ones…but Clara can tell you it’s really the freckled ones with glasses. Clara, the last hold out in the troublesome trio from culinary school, is learning all about the buns in the Hudson Valley. The buns that everyone wants in their mouth.

Hardened Clara and Hotel Boy go round for round in this hotel rebranding. I’d say it’s a death match because it is brutal. Brutally hot, filled with lusty tension, and downright “loud”…with innuendo. What were you thinking?

The last of the trio has come to the Hudson Valley but she isn’t staying. She isn’t making plans. She’s here for work, nothing more. Not the crabby, arrogant Hotel Boy. Not the quaint town. She’s not even here for her besties. No, Clara is here to work out the kinks…(reign in that filthy mind, she’s not that wild) of this job. Not to experience the benefits. There are NO benefits. There is no…

Ok, fine. Clara lies to herself. I won’t continue to do it. You will just have to take her word for it. But I strongly advise, before you try the buns, that you check out the surrounding areas…starting with Maxwell Farms (Nuts) and even head over to Oscar Mendoza’s amazing farm (Cream of the Crop). You won’t want to miss everything this quiet little town has to offer. – Reviewed by Rebecca
