This 100 page story will tell you exactly how Gabe Rossi (yes, that Gabe Rossi, the legendary bad boy of The Guardian Angelino series) is picking up his life and moving to Florida to launch a covert operation in Barefoot Bay. This isn't his "love story" (that's coming soon, I promise!) but the novella is told completely from his point of view and will treat long-time fans to a few days with old friends (the Angelino and Rossi family! Uncle Nino!) and introduce a new world.
Excellent set up for this series. As I’ve not read the Guardian Angelinos series (yet), I knew nothing about them or Gabe Rossi. Not only did I get a thorough introduction of the family, I also had my appetite deliciously whetted for what comes next with Gabe and his new business. And Nino! He’s fantastic and I can’t wait to see more of him.
I love that suspense is joining romance in this series and am excited to begin. The next story couldn’t be more intriguing.
Paige Walker, now a famous actress, returned home to Windfall Island after many years following the eruption of a humiliating scandal. Seeking solitude, forgiveness and a reconnection to her former friends, Maggie and Jessi, she’s also stepped into the mystery regarding the disappearance of Eugenia Stanhope in 1930. Attorney Alec Barclay was engaged by the Stanhope family to investigate and it appears that Paige might be a descendant of Eugenia. To say they got off on the wrong foot at their first encounter is an understatement. This […]

I think it was my good fortune that I read the first five chapters of the first book before I remembered this one existed. With some foresight, this story is a perfect set up for that book and has already answered some developing questions. It succinctly introduces the major characters as well as the mystery that plagues them. It does end in a cliffhanger and my recommendation would be to have the next book in the queue. I’m much more excited now to get back to Unforgiven. This did […]
Hard to Let Go by Laura Kaye is a prefect ending to her Hard Ink series. If you haven’t read Kaye’s Hard Ink series you should start with book 1, Hard As It Gets since the series focuses on the story arc of the guys clearing their name from an event that happened while they were in the army together. And with the series being a relative short one you can play catch up quickly. We’ve followed the guys and gals of Hard Ink through action, danger and […]
