Have you read Willow’s Retreat yet? Dr. Willow Rider is a therapist with her own emotional baggage. A fantastic psychiatrist but a terrible mother and wife, Willow wonders if she should just cut her losses and separate from her husband, John for good. She can’t keep going back only to feel unwanted and unneeded.

John Harrell doesn’t know how to ask for what he wants. He’s been called Saint John by his family because he is always willing to make sacrifices even when no one asks him to. After years of putting everyone’s needs ahead of his own, how can he now demand his own?

When Willow’s past collides with their present, secrets and revenge threaten their family’s safety. Willow will put herself in harm’s way to protect those she loves, even if they don’t feel the same about her.

Can the men in her life rescue Willow in time to show her she is loved and need, or will they be too late?

They can’t go on pretending everything is okay. With the tragic death of her nephew, Dr. Willow Rider needs to make some changes before it’s too late. She’s not a good wife or mother, but she’s an awesome therapist. Can she heed her own advice and repair her broken relationships? Will their families and the past destroy their fragile bond and their second chance at happiness?

Called Saint John by his family, John Harrell is the head of the family. A leader and martyr, he always does what’s best for everyone else. It’s time he demands his own happiness? Can he accept help from those he loves or will he continue to make the same mistakes?

When their son is targeted for being a gay firefighter and accused in his cousin’s death, Willow and John join forces to protect their family and their town from the Steel Marauders motorcycle gang contriving for command of the leaderless sex trafficking cartel that once controlled the town of Leeward. Believing the Harrell family holds the key, they will stop at nothing for revenge and power. Family drama, first in series, suspense thriller, second chance romance, seasoned romance, LBGQ

Empowered Heroines and Smart, Sexy Heroes

The Secret of Flirting by Sabrina Jeffries

Should I be embarrassed that I bought both the eBook and audio of Sabrina Jeffries’ The Secret of Flirting? It’s no secret that Sabrina is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read almost everything she’s written. I’ve enjoyed all her series, but the Sinful Suitors has been a decadent delight of sexy heroes and strong, empowered heroines.

Listening to this story with narrator Justine Eyre brings Jeffries’ words to life. This book should be a movie. The intrigue and adventure are breathless with excitement as Spymaster Baron Fulkham uncovers an assassination plot that could leave the actress, Monique Servais with nothing, not even her life.

What Eyre brings to the narration compliments the novel and characters, we hear the voices like actors on a stage. The emotion and personality Eyre evokes adds to the beauty and strength of Jeffries’ characters.

Sparks sizzle from their first meeting when Fulkham insults the beautiful and talented actress. Mademoiselle Servais has never forgotten the arrogant Baron, nor he her. When she shows up in London as the Princess Aurore of Chanay, he is confident in her true identity. His desire for her frustrates him. To further his pollical career he cannot marry an actress but he cannot ask a princess to be his mistress. Can they find a way to be together or will an assassin destroy their chance at happiness?

If you haven’t read anything by Sabrina Jefferies before, I have to ask, “where have you been?” Read The Secret of Flirting, and the other books in the Sinful Suitors series. Then go back and check out The Hellions of Hallstead Hall, The Dukes’ Men and The School for Heiresses series, and you will understand why Sabrina Jeffries is one of my favorite writers.
