About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

Who Doesn't Love a Rake or a Rogue?

I wanted to take a moment and share a series with you that I love. I have a few favorite historical authors Beverly Jenkins, Jenna Peterson, Kate Pearce, Robin Schone, Anabel Joseph to name a few... Aliyah Burke is a talented writer of suspense, paranormal, contemporary and SEALS (not the ball bouncing kind...well, we won't discuss that.). She also brings her wit, kick-ass heroines and appealing, strong, sexy heroes to her historical writing as well in her Rakes & Rogue series.

I loved this series from book one. Those of you that have met Najja know what I'm talking about. I still get choked up on the snow fight scene. Well, in that book that was a scruffy little street urchin that should up at Colin's (hero from book one) door to deliver a message. Dirty, beat and bruised that little boy stole the show (book). I waited for his story for years and finally I can do my happy dance.

If you have not read this series, don't delay. If you have read book 1 and 2, I now invite you to join me in partaking in Pug's story.

Buy Book 3
A tumultuous meeting leads to a journey across the ocean and starts something new.

Pug has grown up as the eldest son of the Earl of Clifton yet prefers the open sea to land. Stopping off at an island, he engages a woman who takes his breath away. Fearless and protective, he wants to learn more of the woman who is as unique as the ocean.

Sabeen is taking care of five children after the island’s revolt. She has to find passage to England, somehow. Will she be making a big mistake by trusting this dark haired, blue eyed man who had offered his assistance?
During the journey, they grow closer and she learns there is more to this man than she first learned. A revelation waits for him back in England. Will this news drive them further apart? Will her past reclaim her, or will they find their way back to the seas and adventure?

Book 1
