Recipe for Temptation by Maureen Smith

Recipe for Temptation (Kimani Romance)Recipe for Temptation by Maureen Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maureen has never disappointed me and let me tell you that this is one hot story. Mr. Wolf was a hot as fire chef.  I would not mind having him in my kitchen. That scene in the bedroom where he is standing in front of the window is a must!!!!!!!!!
I can't tell you much more. You must read this story.

Midnight by Beverly Jenkins

MidnightMidnight by Beverly Jenkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As always Ms. Jenkins did not disappoint me with this story. Faith and Nick have a beautiful love story that defied the odds.  Seriously I loved this book and because I am a lover of history the information used was quite accurate.
The love scenes were not as hot as say  "Topaz" but not every story can be. My criteria for a 5 star review is that once I finish reading it, it stays on my mind. I started this review last night but I keep thinking about the book. The scenes from this book are playing like a movie in my mind.

Round the Clock by Dara Girard

Round the Clock (Kimani Romance)Round the Clock by Dara Girard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this book just as i loved all the rest of the books in the series. I could have used a little more drama but it was still a good read.
Anne Marie, was a pushover but had a lot of strength that she did not know she had. She wanted one thing in the world and it was Desmond and boy did she get him along with a lot of drama.

Seducing the Matchmaker

Seducing The Matchmaker (Kimani Romance)Seducing The Matchmaker by Elaine Overton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really did like this book.
Noelle Brown is a match maker and she has just met the worse client possible. He is a jackass, he's rude and he does not take no for an answer.
Elaine did a good job with this book and although it does not meet my five star requirements it was a pretty good read.  I recognize that most of the Kimani Press books are a certain length but i wish there was a little more to the story. Like preparation for the drama that just happens all of a sudden and then it's over..  She should really delve into contemporary fiction with a different publisher because she has the chops just needs more pages

Save The Best for Last by Bettye Griffin

Save The Best For LastSave The Best For Last by Bettye Griffin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a pretty good read I must say. I really enjoyed the story and let me tell you this girl had a lot going on. It is very hard to review the book without giving the story away.  Essentially, Gen is in the country illegally and needs to marry someone to stay. Barry whom she had been dating turned out to be somebody's husband already and she needed to think of something else, fast....

gonna leave it there you will have to read the book in order to figure out the rest..

Christmas Diamonds by Devon V. Archer

I wanted to like this book but the action took place just too quickly. There was no chase involved and I would have really liked for more conflict in the beginning of the story.
This is the not the first book that I have read and it will not be the last.  I just don't like this one.

Love Me Tonight by Gwynne Forster

I am big fan of Gwynne Forster but this was not my favorite book. There was no real drama in the book. I think if Heather had gotten kidnapped in Columbia or even taken one of the Ambassador posts it would have been much better, There was nothing more than her misgivings about marriage. She could have searched for her mother or even had her find out more about her mother since she grew up in the same town where Judson came from. 

As usual I love reading about the Harringtons but there was something that I missed. I thought that it would have been much easier if they would have just had the dna test done on Judson from the moment they met him since he did in fact look exactly like Drake.  This was missing a lot of the detail that I have come to expect from Ms. Forster.
