Healing Montana Sky

Healing Montana Sky
By Debra Holland

After a grizzly bear kills Antonia Valleau’s trapper husband, she packs her few worldly possessions, leaves her home in the mountains of Montana, and treks to nearby Sweetwater Springs, seeking work to provide for her two young sons.

Reeling from the loss of his wife during childbirth, Erik Muth must find a nursing mother for his newborn daughter to survive. For their children’s sake, Erik and Antonia wed, starting a new life together on his farm on the prairie. But it’s no easy union. Antonia misunderstands Erik’s quiet personality. He finds her independence disconcerting. Both hide secrets that challenge their growing intimacy.

When Indians steal livestock from farms around Sweetwater Springs to feed their starving tribe, the outraged townsfolk demand retaliation. Erik and Antonia must work together to prevent a massacre. Will a marriage forged in loss blossom into love?


Great little read. The author brought on all the emotions: happy, sad, anger, and love. The characters felt real and you could really feel their emotions. Their story was real and wasn't unrealistic. All I can say is that was a hard life. Antonia was a super strong woman always fighting for her children to make them happy and whole even when she was sad and trying to deal with a new life. The only point I got upset with is when she revealed she was illiterate. His reaction to me was unfair and uncalled for. He didn't see her side. Good read!

Childstar 1 (Chilstar, #1)

Childstar 1 (Childstar, #1)
By J.J. McAvoy

Amelia London is America's sweetheart.

Noah Sloan is America's bad boy. 

Both are former child stars and once were lovers. When they are cast as the leads in the upcoming erotic suspense blockbuster—Sinners Like Us—they are forced to come to terms with the issues that tore them apart to begin with. 

As the whole world watches, can they keep their secrets hidden? After all, everybody is a sinner… 

***Read all three parts of J.J. McAvoy’s extraordinary new adult romantic suspense novel – CHILD STAR – and look for the full book, which will be released as an ebook and a paperback***

I really loved this book!  The characters were so in depth and complicated.  I was a little confused at the end though.  He has slept with her mom and still is?  She blackmails him to sleep with her?  Not sure about that.  I want to see what happens to these tortured souls.  The sex is hot! They have great chemistry.  The author captured the rabid fans and how critical they are about the book turning into the movie.

I would give 5 stars!  But I don't like serial books just give me the whole thing.  I know the author is going to put out the whole book and I know she said straight up she was trying this so I shouldn't complain.  I love this author have read since her fan fiction days!  She is wonderful and she keeps raising the bar. I will buy whatever she puts out!

Conqueror's Kiss

Conqueror's Kiss
By Hannah Howell

Jennet Graeme has witnessed terrible tragedy during the many years of strife between the Scots and the English. As Scottish invaders plunder her convent sanctuary, she defiantly resists the blond warrior who claims her as his prize. But his brute strength is overpowering and Jennet is forced to ride with him through the lawless lands, tending to the wounded, protected and desired by a man she wants to hate ... but cannot ...

Sir Hacon Gillard is moved by Jenner's compassion and mercy. As a loyal knight, he's pledged fealty to his king's command, even as he loses his heart to this remarkable woman. Merciless in combat ... yet there burns within him a spark for something far beyond the heat of battle ...

liked this book, but then it dragged on and on and on.....then I just got frustrated. I liked the characters and the author did a great job in bringing them to life, the heroine was strong and stayed that way throughout. Hacon was interesting a a real good hearted man. They story just dragged and you just wanted the end to get fhere. The bad guys were truly bad, but as always they got what they deserved. A good read, but not a great one.
