There's nothing Nate Christensen hates more than a golddigger. Nate wants to stay away from all the women who want his money. That is, until he meets the sexy, beautiful Chloe Benson, who lights a fire in his blood that only the most passionate nights can ease...

Chloe cannot get enough of Nate-she's never felt more wild with desire in her life. The only problem is, she needs Nate's money. True, it's for a very worthy charity...but is their passion enough to still Nate's fears that she's only wants him for how big his bank account is?

Nate and Chloe’s story was smoking hot, but I wish it was a little longer so that their relationship could develop more before hitting the sheets. I realize that with a novella that can be a downside. There are only so many pages to get the couple together. Many Baxter did a great job building the heat and adding emotion to Nate and Chloe’s story.

Looking for a quick white-hot and emotional romance that starts at a funeral? Then check out Christmas With the Billionaire Rancher by Mandy Baxter.

Carter Christensen takes a much-needed break after a less-than-stellar season as a Dallas Cowboy. He's ready to go to his cabin with his twin daughters and get a little peace and quiet. But what he doesn't count on is meeting a woman who will rile him up completely.

Tess Adams is still loving her decision to escape bustling New York-and her cheating boyfriend-behind, and live in a sleepy Texas town. But when a single dad with twins moves in to the cabin across the way, Tess feels anything but peaceful. The more she gets to know the oh-so-sexy Carter Christensen, the more Tess starts to think that she should give up her quiet, safe life, and give into passion.

The Billionaire Single Dad is a slow sexy burn that leads to a HEA for all involved.

Carter and Tess is a couple that tugs at your heart strings. They both have been alone for a while. Tess because she was cheated on and Carter because his wife died two years ago from cancer. Carter is alone with his twin five-year-old twin daughters and Tess is licking her wounds from the breakup with her asshole ex.

They meet one weekend when Carter brings the twins for a country get away, but he gets more than he bargained for. Carter and his girls put Tess’ life in a tailspin and she couldn’t be happier about it.

If you’re looking for a romance that’s equal parts sweet and heat then check it Mandy Baxter’s The Billionaire Single Dad.

Travis Christensen's life is one big party. He only has two concerns: being a star goalkeeper on the ice for the Dallas Stars, and keeping a revolving door of women at his beck and call. But when a feisty, fiery PR rep comes to tone down his image before the coach benches him, Travis has got a whole new mess on his hands...and he can't help but want more.

Reily Martin never met an image she couldn't make squeaky clean. So when the coach of the Dallas Stars hires her to reform their bad-boy goalie, Reily is more than up to the challenge. But dealing with the arrogant-and incredibly sexy-Travis Christensen proves to be more than she bargained for. She knows she shouldn't fall for hockey's most notorious playboy-but as the heat blazes between them, it gets harder and harder to say no.

Each story in Mandy Baxter’s Texas Heartthrobs series is better than the last one. The Billionaire Heartbreaker brings romance, heat, and emotion with the HEA between the bad boy of the Christensen boys, Travis and the super reserved PR rep, Reily. Travis is Reily’s worst nightmare. He’s the bad boy of the NHL and Reily knows that he could ruin her professionally and personally if she let’s go with him.

I liked that Reily and Travis didn’t fall into bed the first day they met. They got to know each other a little before the hot times happened. But because this is a novella around 100 pages it didn’t take long for them to get hot and heavy and by the end, they were throwing the L word around.

I will say that Mandy Baxter was able to develop both characters with depth so that there were plot and development to go with the sex.

I really enjoyed this series about the Christenson brothers. My only complaint was that the stories weren’t long enough. They all could easily be full-length novels.  I can’t wait to read the youngest brother’s story. I just know that Noah Christensen will be the hottest sheriff in town.

If you’re looking for quick romance reads with plenty of smexy times balance with romance and some great characters you should try Baxter’s Texas Heartthrobs series and you could easy read them all back to back in one sitting!

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I didn’t know she wrote as Kate Baxter. I knew she was Amanda Bonilla and have even read her under this name. I’ve not read any Mandy Baxter. I should look her up as Kate Baxter, since that is more my genre.

  2. OK I may be losing my mind. I did work until midnight and have to go in again shortly. I just woke up only I’m not awake, just up. Is Mandy Baxter the romance pen name for Amanda Bonilla? Or am I just sleep deprived and confused? Anne
