She has bought together two people who have not had a lot of love in their lives so find it hard to rely on other people Reagan is a loner and Kainan has so much responsibility and when a baby is bought into the mix, a baby who has health problems makes this a story not to be missed.

Georgie Jones promises to look for a suitable wife for hotel tycoon Loukas Christou. And she does look for dates. But the chemistry between them fizzles high. So they kiss and find that it was unforgettable. What could they do now?

Would Loukas look at Georgie as a suitable wife for him? And if he did, would Georgie agree?  

TEMPTED BY THE GREEK TYCOON is a sweet romance about relationships and hang-ups. Author Katrina Cudmore brought this strong, brooding, alpha Greek hero whom I loved. He suppressed his own hurt feelings and grief to look after everyone else around him. And Georgie was the perfect foil for him. She made him see people and feelings. And she also made him live the relationships as opposed to just taking care of everyone else.

I really love a story about a Greek hero and set in Greece, this one has both and well what can I say, except that this one is a beauty of a story, a gorgeous hero so very serious hard working not looking for love and the heroine fun loving carefree loves travel and not looking to settle down perfect you would think that they could work together well and not fall in love, but the author and cupid have other ideas.

Loukas Christou is working hard for the company that his parents started he has three younger siblings that he has been caring for since the loss of their parents years before who all work for the company as well, and he likes everything to run smoothly and work perfectly there is no room for error in his life, but it appears now that he needs a wife if he is to fulfil a dream of his father’s, but it will be a marriage of convenience and when a new PA is hired by his brother she steps in to help him find that wife only Loukas seems to have trouble thinking of anyone else except Georgie Jones.

Georgie Jones is good at what she does in life and that has been many positions over the years you see she loves to travel and does not stay in one place too long, she has a problem with relationships after being abandoned as a child by her mother, but when she loses her father as well and he had finally settled on the Greek Island of Talos Georgie decides to finish the guesthouse that her Dad had started and is now also working for the Christou family at their hotel. When she takes on the role of match maker for Loukas she really has a hard time not falling for him herself.

This is a story that will keep you engaged, the characters are so lovable, the dialogue fabulous and to see Georgie and Loukas fall in love is so moving, sensual and beautiful the scenery of course makes me want to be there with them and Loukas’s siblings and the guests at the hotel add so much to the story. This is a story that I highly recommend it will make any romance reader smile with such bliss, thank you MS Cudmore for an excellent story I do hope we get to see a few more of the Christou family have their HEA’s.

Two novellas that are thoroughly good reads they both kept me turning the pages the characters are strong and honest and MS Marsden has a great voice, sit back and enjoy.

Swept Away
When married couple Sean and Sophie Li are enjoying their honeymoon on a tropical island and contemplating their future back in Australia they never dreamed that a tsunami would pull them apart, injured and not being able to find each other sets them on different paths for their futures. But when they meet again at an engagement party that spark is still there and the need to help each other has not faded. Their journey back to happiness is a good one.

I loved this story and cannot highly recommend it enough for a quick, moving and emotional story that will leave you feeling very happy with lots of smiles, it is so well written, and I look forward to many more stories from MS Marsden.

Road Trip Baby

Fran and Ethan have been having a fairly secret affair, secret because Fran is Ethan’s sister’s best friend and Ethan doesn’t think he can give Fran what she wants, and it has been going on for many years now, they have known each other a lot longer, both have good jobs but Fran always knew that Ethan did not want kids, so when she finds herself pregnant and Ethan jumps to the wrong conclusion this pulls them apart. I really like Fran and her determination to give this baby a good life and when she asks Ethan to drive her to Sydney and this sends lots of emotions flowing in a very sensual way.

This is such a great story I loved Ethan he is such a great hero perfect for Fran, there is such great dialogue throughout Fran and Ethan come to life on the pages getting to know them as friends, another quick and fabulous story way to go MS Marsden I loved them both

This is a very moving story Freya McFadden had always been a fun loving girl studying to be a midwife that was until she fell in love with the wrong guy one who wanted to control her and when he lost that control he decided that no one should have her so he threw acid on her, this is life changing but Freya continues her study and becomes a midwife she loves her job and works nights to keep out of the spotlight. But a fancy dress fundraising ball changes her life.

When Freya attends the fancy dress fundraising ball she can be herself under cover of a veil so when she encounters a pirate she is attacked to instantly like never before and becomes bold and makes a pass which leads to a very sensual encounter with a stranger that leaves her pregnant with twins and then to meet him at work weeks later her heart is pounding.

Jamie is a midwife a good one it had been his passion for many years so much so that he had to leave his country to follow his dreams but he is a Prince, Prince Jameel Al Bakhari of Majidar who now lives in England. He starts at a new hospital and who does he run into but the woman he has not forgotten and she is pregnant and he will do what he has to do to keep Freya and his babies.

Freya is so scared by her past that she finds it hard to be out and about but Jamie only sees her beauty and her strength, there are a lot of hurdles for them both to cross before they can get to their HEA but get there they do. Freya comes across a bit stubborn but I do understand why and I really felt for her and Jamie is just the best hero he is so caring and loving, so I highly recommend this one for all who love a good medical romance and babies.

Joy McKinley is a chef and baker she has worked for some of the best in America but after an argument with her former boss from a very well to do family Joy is hiding out in luxury while trying to get enough money behind her to settle, Joy is an honest person but when she is nearly ploughed down by a car in a snow storm the fibs start as her gorgeous rescuer asks some questions and this spark between them cannot be contained.

Alexander Townsend is a billionaire and he has been burnt before by a female after his money so he is very careful around females, but he is not only gorgeous but just about the most caring hero there is and when he rescues Joy he is compelled to stay with her for the night then they get snowed in and a very sensual and enjoyable few days is enjoyed, but when the time comes for it to end Alex doesn’t want it to, but some truths from Joy turn things upside down.

I really enjoyed this story MS Booth has bought to life Alex and Joy and their sensual journey, with snow and wonderful food, the caring and love that is shown by them both is so endearing and their HEA had me smiling, thank you MS Booth for a fabulous story that I do recommend.
