Close Pursuit by Cindy Dees

CPOn the run and under fire

Providing medical relief in a war-torn region helps Alex Peters forget his past and focus on the job—delivering babies. Less easy to overlook is his blonde comrade-at-arms, who knows nothing of the trouble he’s running from. Katie McCloud makes the assignment bearable, although her perky innocence proves to be an arousing distraction. Then, as combat explodes around them, their only option is flight.

A kindergarten teacher seeking adventure, Katie hoped this humanitarian mission—and the mysterious, sexy doctor sharing it—would push her out of her comfort zone. With Alex, she starts taking tantalizing risks and becoming the survivor she knew she could be.

But back on U.S. soil, Alex and Katie face a new threat, and this time they’re the target. Forced into close confines, neither can believe the other isn’t the intended mark. With only each other to depend on—and suspect—Alex and Katie can’t avoid the simmering attraction between them. But to stay alive, they’ll have to trust more deeply than ever before….

Pretender to the Throne by Maisey Yates

PTT3The final book in The Call of Duty trilogy

A duty to the past…

After fifteen years in self-imposed exile, the haunted rebel prince Xander Drakos must walk back through the palace gates and assume the role he once abandoned.

Only one woman can restore his good name—the woman he left behind. But when Xander finds Layna Xenakos, he’s horrified to see the effects of the turmoil he left behind written in the scars across her body.

But her scars have given her strength, and Layna refuses to bow to his royal command. Now Xander must use his practiced charm to convince her to become his bride, securing his legitimate place on the throne.

Find out what happens in book 1, A Royal World Apart, and book 2, At His Majesty’s Request

A Matchless Romance by Christi Barth

AMR1Tabitha Bell is the face of Chicago’s premiere matchmaking service. At least, she hopes it will be someday, once business really takes off. What she needs is more clients, so when she meets a sexy gamer in need of help, it’s the perfect opportunity.

His discomfort talking to women almost cost Drew Watson his job. He’d be happy holed up in his office, designing blockbuster video games, but his boss considers talking to investors a nonnegotiable requirement. Who better than a matchmaker to teach him how to be comfortable around the opposite sex? Trouble is, Drew wants to get more than comfortable with Tabitha, while she’s determined to keep their relationship all business.

Soon Tabitha learns that beneath the geek-chic hoodie lies six feet of sexy physique—and the more time she spends with Drew, the more she appreciates his brainy brand of charm. Will she succumb to his sweet-but-nerdy charm offensive or will it be game over before he can win her heart?

  1. Gretchen

    Matchless Romance and Close Pursuit both caught my attention. I like the nerdy guy uncomfortable around the opposite sex and the kindergarten teacher trying to come out of her comfort zone and find adventure.

  2. Jen B

    I like the sound of “A matchless romance” because usually it’s the woman who’s nervous around the opposite sex, not the man.

  3. Cari White

    Christie Barth’s A Matchless Romance….. Love the “geek-chic”, gamer guy who’s awkward with women. Unusual hero for a book. Wondering how it plays out.

  4. belindaegreen

    I’m loving the e-bundle from Harlequin! I didn’t know they did them really. I love the authors and novel that are included. I’m looking forward to some great reading I also liked all the other books as well. They are look like wonderful additions to my TBR list. 🙂

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would enjoy the E- Contemporary Romance Box Set Volume 1 + A Matchless Romance by Christi Barth or the Close Pursuit by Cindy Dees + Pretender to the Throne by Maisey Yates, because I really love reading good books, and adding to my library collection.

  6. Linda

    Close Pursuit. I like that the hero is in the medical profession. I’m an international reader.

  7. Kimberly Dawn

    A Matchless Romance because of the cover. Blurb sounds good too. The box set also caught my attention because of the cover shown. All of these books sound good!

  8. Christine L.

    CLOSE PURSUIT sounds good to me. I like the humanitarian relief aspect and the international intrigue.

  9. Lori Meehan

    Print Bundle: Close Pursuit by Cindy Dees + Pretender to the Throne by Maisey Yates
    I caught my eye because I like Maisey Yates books.

  10. Robyn

    Close Pursuit caught my eye. You can feel the closeness of the cover models. It intrigues me wanting to find out more about them.

  11. holdenj

    A Matchless Romance, because of her job and the geek to romantic interest the guy will entail.

  12. Rachael

    The Harlequin E Contemporary Romance Box Set Volume 1 caught my attention. All of the books in the set sound interesting. I would love to read all of them.

  13. ndluebke

    All of the Print bundle looks great but I think “A Matchless Romance” because He thinks he doesn’t know how to talk to women.

  14. Margaret

    All the books sound great, but the Harlequin E Contemporary Romance Box Set Volume 1 caught my eye since I’ve seen a review of this set before and it caught my interest – love the sound of all the stories in it, but especially Coming in from the Cold by Sarina Bowen.

  15. Laurie G

    Christi Barth’s A MATCHLESS ROMANCE caught my attention. It’s kind of neat that two people working to hook up a lot of single people would put their own needs and desires on hold. I’d like to read how they finally acknowledge the chemistry between themselves and how they act on this attraction.

  16. Susan Updegraft

    All of them. I am always looking for new books to read, and can most times tell what I will like by the cover. So I am excited to read and review anyone of these books!

  17. florryalyna

    The Contemporary Romance Box Set Volumes are tempting me, because they are my favorite genre and will busy me for some days reading, dreaming and entertaining.

  18. Ada

    I’m a big fan of Christi Barth and A Matchless Romance got my eye right away. But Box set also sounds fantastic!
