Blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author Logan Chance comes a deliciously dirty standalone about a pirate, a mafia princess being kidnapped, and a second chance at love.

A ruthless pirate.

A mafia queen.

A kidnapping that leads to a second chance at love.

They say a pirate is only after one thing… treasure.

Yet not all treasure is silver and gold, and I’ll stop at nothing to make Bianca Amato mine.

We grew up together, and she was destined to rule the mafia kingdom her father created. But I had other plans. I left their life of crime, their empire, for one of my own—out on the sea.

But I’ve returned, and I’m here for one thing…her.

When I learn Bishop Blackstone wants Bianca kidnapped, I swoop in to do the deed for him. He’ll never know what I’m really after.

Or her.

I’ll keep her safe– in my bed, but at arm’s length.

Yet, when danger threatens to destroy us both, I’ll walk any plank to protect her.

They say pirates never fall for the princess, but I’m willing to prove them wrong.

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 4*/5

This story had a lot of elements that I really liked, a recap to the initial concept of the series that is good for those who have read the previous, yet makes it easily followed as a standalone.
Bianca and Costi have a childhood history that we get an insight to, and events that change their lives at age 15 set up how the story develops 10 years down the line when the threat of Bishop Blackstone brings them together again. The chemistry between Bianca and Costi certainly heats up, and the connection that formed in their past never really went away. Told in DUAL POV’s, it’s a fairly fast paced read, with a twist along the way that I didn’t expect! Recurring characters and the introduction of a new one, who I think may get their own story at some point, adding that there are still a couple of books still to come, it will be interesting to see how the series will be concluded

Tempting the Baller (Charleston Pirates 3) by Jacob Chance

Title: Tempting the Baller

Series: Charleston Pirates #3

Author: Jacob Chance

Genre: Sports Romance

Release Date: March 25, 2022

Cover Design: Sybil Wilson/Popkitty Design

Being a running back for the Charleston Pirates and a single father doesn’t allow for much free time. But an invite to spend the Fourth of July weekend in the Hamptons with friends is an offer too good to refuse.

While there, the opportunity for a no-strings hookup with a stunning brunette presents itself and I jump at the chance. At the end of the weekend Leah will return to Boston and we’ll never see each other again.

Now, with the pre-season about to begin, a shoulder injury has me sidelined. I’m sent to work with the team’s new athletic trainer and come face to face with Leah, my Hamptons hookup—and our chemistry is as explosive as ever.

The no-fraternization clause in our contracts should keep us from acting on our mutual attraction, but the close proximity my rehab requires makes her damn near impossible to resist.

My five-year-old son is my priority and I can’t risk losing my job. No matter what, this baller won’t give in to temptation.

At least that’s what I tell myself.

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 5*/5

The blurb states enough, and once again, I got fully into the story right from the start! Told in DUAL POV’s, there is the great attention to detail of the sports side along with the developing attraction between Leah and Levi from their first meeting at the Fourth of July Hampton’s get together that featured in the previous book ,which had some LOL moments and plenty of heat! add in the adorable ‘Three’ (Levi’s 5yr old son), a little drama along the way to the HEA, it was an enjoyable read, and a great addition to the series.

Jacob Chance grew up in New England and still lives there today. He’s a martial artist, a football fan, a practical joker, and junk food lover.

High Meadow by Freya Barker

Title: High Meadow(High Mountain Trackers, #1) Author: Freya Barker Genre: Romantic Suspense Release Date: February 21, 2022 Cover Designer: Freya Barker Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

An emergency call to pick up an injured stallion on the side of the road sends Alexandra Hart, the new owner of Hart’s Horse Rescue, into action. A recent addition to the area, she is not impressed when the animal’s taciturn owner shows up. With his less-than-stellar disposition, he’s the kind of man she normally avoids at all costs, unfortunately, he owns the ranch just down the road.

However, when the manhunt for a pair of escaped prisoners gets a little too close for comfort, Jonas turns out to be a better neighbor than she expected.

The Alex who shows up at his ranch to help with his prize stud’s recovery is not exactly who Jonas Harvey expected. This is the same bleeding heart he met on the side of the road. Worried she’s not up for the job, he’d prefer to keep a close eye on her but his High Mountain Trackers team gets called in to track down a group of domestic terrorists.

But the slip of a woman proves him wrong. On all fronts. Alex not only charms his horses but him as well, and when trouble comes calling she proves to be a worthy ally to boot.

The Price of Redemption

(book 1)

books2read.com/dutchmen1

Facebook | Twitter

I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I’ve spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean I’m pigeon-holed into one mold.  I’ve been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, “Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities.”   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

New Release~ Kissing the Quarterback by Jacob Chance

Title: Kissing the QuarterbackSeries: Charleston Pirates #2Author: Jacob ChanceGenre: Sports RomanceRelease Date: January 7, 2022Cover Design: Sybil Wilson/Popkitty Design

As the quarterback for the Charleston Pirates, the current Super Bowl champs, I lead a blessed life.
Between my salary and endorsements, I have more money than I could ever spend.
But when the sale of my old home doesn’t line up with the closing on my new one, I’m forced to take up residency in a friend’s empty house.
Except, it’s not empty.
Kendra, the woman of my dreams, my best friend’s tempting little sister, is here taking up more space than just the rooms in this house.
She’s in my head and under my skin. The only problem is she’s hell bent on resisting me, and I’m determined to make her surrender.
I didn’t achieve everything I have without hard work and focus, and that’s the way I’ll win Kendra over.
No matter how hard she tries not to, she’ll be kissing this quarterback in no time.

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 5*/5

The second in the series, and this time follows Darren and Kendra, who have had a mutual attraction from their first meeting (in the Prologue- at college) move to present day, and those feelings between them are still there, and what follows, without giving too much away, is another well written, enjoyable, DUAL POV story with great attention to detail in terms of mixing the sports side and the off the charts chemistry of the leads, also the cameo’s of previous characters from the Boston Terrier’s popping up along the way. It’s got some LOL moments, some slight drama/suspense towards the end, that is resolved quickly. I hope there will be more to come!

I LOVED IT!

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR Rating 4*/5

As the blurb gives enough of the concept, so as to not go into too much detail as to all that unfolds, what I will say is that it was one LOL, fast paced, DUAL POV’s, insta-hotness story, alongside some added suspense which made for a crazy time all round, with some twists and turns, that once I’d finished I was like…WTF was that! (I mean in a~ totally enjoyable, couldn’t put it down type way)

Although a Standalone, there are characters featured that have been previously seen,(Changing the Player) and a couple of new ones that I hope will get their own stories!

Second chances.

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 4*/5

The blurb gives enough , so not to give too much away, all I will say is that from the Prologue, it had me invested, the quirky elements that are the usual from the Author, which lead to some LOL moments, plenty of heat added, told in DUAL POV’s, I liked the main characters of Paisley (26) and Vaughn(28), their story flowed fairly well, and I did get a surprise element with the suspense, although to me, it was a bit on the OTT side, however, on the whole it was an enjoyable read.
