Christy Clarkson never anticipated being a part of a charity auction where she was to be sold to the highest bidder.  The person who wins her will share a weekend for two at a resort.  To add an element of intrigue, many of the bidders are members of an exclusive kink club, where BDSM is a way of life.

When Christy sees that Henry Hawthorne is one of the bidders, she fears that he will try to purchase her.  She has shunned his advances for months, and this could be his only way to “win” a date with her.  Christy can think of no worse way then to be forced with a weekend with Henry.

Out of nowhere, Zach Nikas appears and saves Christy from having to spend one more minute with Henry’s unwanted advances.  Years ago, Zach and she had shared a passion that burned a memory into her soul.  When she found pictures that indicated that Zach was into BDSM, she couldn’t accept that lifestyle, and walked away from him.

Christy never forgot Zach, and wanted to learn more about the BDSM.  She did extensive research into the subject and found that it wasn’t as bad as she originally anticipated.  Her memories of her time spent with Zach were never forgotten.

As the auction begins, and the bidding gets heated who will place the winning bid and claim Christy?

SOLD is an outstanding introduction to THE AUCTION series.  Jaymie Holland is a master when it comes to presenting a BDSM book with unforgettable characters.  I was so pleased with this first book that I look forward to reading the other two in the series.

Purchase:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/042526887X/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=042526887X

Marine Staff Sergeant Luke Fletcher had spent the past ten years in the military serving his country.  In Afghanistan, he receives a letter that turns his life upside down.  He learns that a former girlfriend had died, and claimed in his will that he was the father of her ten year old daughter, Taylor.

He immediately requests emergency leave to go and find the daughter that he never knew existed.  His daughter’s attorney Kate Dolan knows how it feels to be raised by a military family.  She hopes that Luke will give up his parental rights and allow the grandparents to raise Taylor.

When Kate meets Luke, she is surprised to see that he does not fit the controlling alpha male that she imaged him to be; instead she finds a kind and caring person who wants what is best for his daughter.

Will Luke walk away from his military career to become a full time father?

CAROLINA Man (DARE ISLAND NOVEL – BOOK 3) is a heartwarming novel.  The circumstances that bring Kate and Luke together are the substance that makes for a true blue romance novel.  I was highly impressed with Virginia Kantra’s writing style.  She knows how to write a story that will wrap its way around your heart.

Contemporary Romance

When Grafton ‘Grif’ Parks was first hired as a security guard at her father’s company, Kendall felt that hiring a disabled Veteran was a big mistake.  As time went on, Kendall realized that Grif’s prosthetic hand did not take away from his sex appeal or his ability to be a top notch security guard.

One Christmas night, Kendall finds she is lonely and decides to chase away her holiday blues with a bottle of wine.  Grif is there protecting her, but the unexpected occurs, as they find themselves lost in the moment and giving themselves to each other.  That one night of passion quickly turns to regret for Kendall as the morning approaches.  She tries to put the night behind her by putting distance between herself and Grif.

Kendall puts all her energies into her job at Herrington Limited.  She wants to prove that she has the ability to be able to run her father’s multibillion dollar company.  At a board meeting, she finds that a plague of nausea hits her; Grif recognizes that Kendall needs to find an excuse to exit the meeting.  He provides her the opportunity by making up a false excuse.  As soon as the two exit the meeting, Kendall runs to the nearest bathroom.

As Kendall relieves of her stomach’s content, Grif realizes that she is pregnant with his child.  The realization he is about to be a father hits him hard.  Kendall refuses to believe that she is with child.  She knows that if the board finds out about her condition, they would never allow her to take control of the company.

J.M. Madden has once again proven the fact that she has the ability to create a hero that will melt your heart.   I enjoyed how she paired a blue collar worker with a high society lady.  Though Grif and Kendall came from different worlds, their electricity sparked a love that refused to die out.  J.M. Madden’s books are an addictive pleasure that I find myself craving.  It never fails that when I finish with her latest offering, I find myself wanting more.  To say that I am impressed with this author is an understatement.
