Book Summary:
A Woman’s Tender Touch

He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair. Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, “Come for Jillian,” he raced to her side—into a competition to win her hand in marriage.

But Grimm was the man she loved, the one who urged her to marry another. He tried to pretend indifference as she tempted him, but he could not deny the fierce desires that compelled him to abduct her from the altar.

Holy WOW!! This story blew my socks off! I didn’t want to put it down, even through some of the rough parts. And I mean there was just some parts that were hard to read. This story follows Viktor who is the leader of a motorcycle club and his desire to get back to his wife Blythe. However, being undercover for 5 years to bring down a pedophile ring has left it’s mark on him and his fellow brother and sisters. Blythe on the other hand, has felt abandon by Viktor because he left without a goodbye. She has gone through hardships too while he was away. I love how the story takes place is one of my favorite areas which is the Fort Bragg, Ca. The descriptions of the places are spot on and makes you feel like you’re actually there with the characters. I don’t want to say too much since I don’t want to give spoilers away. All I can say is that this book is full of action, and won’t disappoint!

Book Summary:
Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this –she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother, and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.
