She made the rules. But he’s changing the game… 

Within thirty seconds of meeting Reid Faulkner again, I’m reminded of exactly why I had a crush on him for so many years. That confidence, that effortless control, that thigh-clenching hotness… Only, this time I’m not little Blair Cameron, sexually frustrated teenager. No, now I am an adult woman reliving every filthy fantasy I’ve ever had about him…

His dark, sexy stare is filled with naughty promises. Promises of sex. Great sex.

But I’m here to work for him. I have a contract, and I won’t let any man—no matter how delicious—underestimate me again. So I am proposing a second contract. An unofficial one, where we explore my every desire. It’s the perfect no-strings arrangement—all sex, no emotions. The only problem is that I made a concession: to play by his rules.

Now we’ve crossed that line and tasted forbidden. It started with only a touch. But will a man who controls everything protect his heart at all costs…even if it means breaking mine?

Titles in the Billionaire Bachelors series include — Forbidden to Want –  Forbidden to Taste –  Forbidden to Touch

This title is part of Harlequin Dare a line of romances that are hot, steamy and explicit.  Intended for adult, 18+ readers due to strong sexual situations geared toward an adult audience.

Gemstones.

There is a fun group over on Facebook called “Reading Is Sweet“, it’s made up of authors of mostly Sweet, Clean Romances (but some authors have pen names so you never know who you might run into there).  Last year there was a Challenge that was fun, entertaining, and introduced me to a lot of new-to-me authors.

Now a new Challenge has begun and the three Lists of books will be released about two weeks apart.  You can keep track of your reads through a link, there is a prize, but the real gem of all of this is the book experience.  If you’ve never heard of this group – check them out on Facebook.  You just might find some new friends, new authors and lots of new books to devour.

To make my reading life a bit easier I’m putting the lists here at Keeper Bookshelf.  So while this is a mainly for myself post – I do honestly hope you go over and check out the group, I believe if you love Sweet, Clean Romance that you’ll also find some authors to follow and new to you books to read.

The Lists can be found after the “Read More”

Firefighter Braden Mahoney is devastated when his beloved Weimaraner, Jelly Bean, fails the canine arson investigator test. Faced with the challenge of raising the money for advanced training, it’s Braden’s sweet grandmother and her best friend who suggested he use the services of the new event planner in town. Not that he needs a push in Cassie Santorini’s direction. Ever since she arrived, Braden has had his eye on the sassy Greek goddess…and can’t stop thinking about getting the rest of him on her, too.

Cassie has spent years putting family first, even moving to Bitter Bark when her mother falls in love with the local veterinarian. Having a huge new extended “family” is fun, especially when one smoke show of a firefighter attends the gatherings, but Cassie has no plans to remain in this small town. She’s ready to pursue her big-city dreams. But when Braden asks for an assist for his precious pup, Cassie agrees to help him set up a town-wide scavenger hunt. It isn’t exactly a hardship to be around those blue eyes and brawny shoulders, especially since they both agree that everything – even the undeniable sparks that crackle between them – is temporary.

But when temporary gets complicated by feelings that might lead to forever, Braden and Cassie start to question the direction they’re headed. Should they follow their dreams…or their hearts? It’ll take a dog with a bad nose and a sweet soul, two particularly meddlesome grandmas, and some help from the clan that loves them to make sure Cassie and Braden follow the clues and find their way to each other’s arms.

Titles in The Dogmothers series include — Hot Under the Collar – Three Dog Night –

The Dogmothers is a spin-off from The Dogfather series – a listing of those titles and links to review posts can be found on our Roxanne St. Claire page.
