Brianna MacDougall and Tyler Fairfield have know each other for forever and have been friends almost as long, but nothing romantic ever happened between the two. That is until six months ago when they consumed a little too much liquor, let one thing lead to another, and shared one hot, steamy, and passionate night. The next morning was filled with awkwardness and regret as the two vowed  never to mention that night ever again. Lately, however, things seem to be heating up between the two, but Brianna isn't sure if she's imagining it or not. Was that one night the mistake or was agreeing to never discuss it the real mistake? Dare she risk their friendship to find out?

This was the second book in the Fairfield Orchard series and Ms. Cane decided to kick things up a notch in this one. If you haven't read the previous book, "At Fairfield Orchard", don't worry. This one can be read as a standalone and you won't feel like you've missed anything.

Tyler Fairfield is a hometown boy who is an up and coming actor in Hollywood. He spent the last three years as the heartthrob, Dr. Lake, on the soap opera Doctors and Nurses before the show was canceled. Now on sabbatical, he's come home to help run the family orchard after his mother and father retired. Volunteering to help out for the next six months, the timing couldn't have been more perfect. A well needed break from the Hollywood life was just what he needed or so he thinks. While he loved acting, not everything about the Hollywood lifestyle appealed to him.

Brianna McDougall is a small-town girl who manages her family's general store. She loves the town and the people and can't imagine ever leaving. She's kind, loyal, and very different from the types of girls you'd meet in Hollywood. Tyler has always felt an unspoken connection to her, but has tried over the years to avoid taking things farther than friendship. Her father had been like a second father to him growing up, and he'd never want to disrespect him, but six months ago he'd finally given in to his attraction for Bri. While he's agreed to never discussing what happened, he's finding he'd like to pick up where they left off and see where things might go.

I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. It was a sweet and charming romance where two friends have strong feelings for each other, but are afraid of messing up a very special friendship. There are a few minor bumps in the road, but you know exactly where this one is heading. The author slowly builds up anticipation as these two pussy-footed around one another while waiting for the right moment to pounce and reveal their feelings to one another. Such a fun story with some touching and heartfelt moments along the way. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. Definitely worth your time to pick this one up. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A Rake in need of a wife who is afraid of falling in love…

"I want to choose my bride. I need a sensible business partner. Someone gracious, genteel, irreproachable...all that I'm damn well not."(...)


“Certain you won’t reconsider?”

“Impossible. You know the score,”

“I know, I know.“ Dalton made a wry face. “Must produce heir. Preserve the Harland legacy. Open your precious manufactory. All that nonsense. Bloody rotten business if you ask me.”

“I don’t like it any more than you. Marriage is the last thing I want. I don’t need more complications.” (...)

"Four ladies. Three days. How bad can it be?"

Dalton sighed."You've no idea. Don't say I didn't warn you..."

A woman desperate to escape her lot in life…


"We need more time," she said. 

“More time? (…) You never learn, do you,” he said. “Life doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s very simple.” He rested his forehead against hers. “I want you, nothing else. You’re all the payment I require. (...) I’m willing to forgive and forget.”

Charlene stilled. He was willing to forgive? She fought a swell of anger that threatened to swamp her control. The last time she’d seen him, he’d been wielding a blazing brand, preparing to mark her with his family crest. Induct her into his private harem. 

And a bargain that could change everything…

“You want me to seduce a duke? While pretending to be your daughter?”

“If you must put it so crudely, then yes. It’s really very simple. Three days of acting for enough coin to achieve your dreams. What is it you want most?”
This was such a fun book that had everything I love in a historical romance. The story is fast paced and addictive. The characters are well written and easy to relate to. The romance was awesome and I absolutely loved it.

Charlene is a strong woman trying to find a way out of her plight. James is the type of hero who is swoonworthy and needs a good woman more than he knows. The villain is vile and in need of a lesson and a swift kick to the arse (and much worse, but being a lady, I won’t go there). The romance *sigh* is all that and then some. The only thing I can fault the author with is that it ended too soon. (Which considering it was 384 pages, says a lot.) Darn it. I wanted more. lol

For years Charlene was kept in the dark about her mother's profession as a madame of an exclusive bawdy house. The business was run out of a secret room on a separate floor of their residence which I presume had its own private street entrance. Charlene had been horrified by the news especially after finding out she was being groomed to follow in her mother's footsteps. She's looking for a way out not only for her, but her younger sister as well. Although she has her reservations, her playing the part of her legitimate half-sister, Lady Dorthea, seems like her best option. She tends to waffle about whether or not she can pull the switch off as her "schooling", if you can call it that, hasn't been tested, but decides to take the plunge.

James was the spare to his father's heir and had been all but disregarded by his father. He'd done all he could to find his own place in the world only to find himself in  the unexpected position of inheriting a dukedom. Now, the last of his line, the pressure for him to produce an heir of his own is weighing heavily on him. The biggest problem being he believes love is "a dangerous word. The precursor to Loss and Loneliness." He's decided his best bet is to marry a woman he doesn't love and he and his friends have narrowed down the playing field to four women of the ton with impeccable pedigrees and spotless reputations.

This story reminded me a bit of  My Fair Lady wrapped around a sliver of Memoirs of a Geisha with a touch of  the biblical story of Jacob and Rachel (That's the story where Leah is substituted for her sister Rachel at the wedding) mixed in. While it seems a little incredulous that Charlene could remain untainted by her mother's profession for so long, especially with a creep like Lord Grant believing he was entitled to her. I don't think I would have liked the story nearly as much if things had gone darker. In my humble opinion, it was a good call by the author to not go that route. I think it had just the right amount of devilry in it without overstepping into the realm of something much more abominable.

Well, if you haven't figured it out yet, I gave this one 5 out of 5 roses. It was a delightful read with a fun and slightly suspenseful story line, characters with distinct and strong personalities, and a love story that made me grin from ear to ear and chuckle a great deal. I HIGHLY recommend this one and am doing a little happy dance because I have found a new author to love. On the Lisarenee Romance Scale, this one scored a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.

When a serial killer makes his presence known he strikes fear into the masses. When he's captured or stopped, everyone breathes a sigh of relief because his or her reign of terror is finally over. For the survivors, however, it never really ends, it just gets easier to persevere on. For the past 10 years that is exactly what Sasha Keeton has been doing. Taking life one day at a time, one step at a time, trying to put the nightmare behind her. Held by a madman the press nicknamed "The Groom", she's finally going home to the very place where her ordeal began. Her dream had once been to take over her family's Inn and she's decided she won't let the madman identified as Vernon Joan take that away from her too. Taking back her life at this point should be easy, but almost from the moment she steps foot back in town, someone seems bent on making her feel unwelcome...

'I hit the cobblestone roundabout and made a beeline for the car I'd Parked outside the carriage house, grateful none of the guests were early risers. Thinking I would  have just enough time to help Mom do the continental breakfast, I stopped in front of my car.

My mouth dropped open. "Oh my God."

I blinked, because I couldn't believe what I was seeing, but my eyesight was just fine. Stomach twisting and turning sour, I took a step toward the car. Glass crunched under my feet.

Glass that belonged on my car and not on the ground. 

Every single window of my car had been shattered. Every one.'

Broken windows, however, are only the beginning, Bigger and much worse things have yet to come...
This was a very suspenseful roller coaster thriller of a ride with a gernerous slice of romance to go with it. This one had me scratching my head as to who was causing all the chaos, although it was pretty clear from the first page that the person had ties to the original killer. The big question was who, and how entangled were they in everything that happened ten years ago. A trail of breadcrumbs exists, but the path to the killer wasn't obvious to me until the big reveal. Then of course I did a huge head smack. lol

Cole, Sasha's love interest, was a bit too much of an eager beaver for my tastes. His seeking her out and wanting to date her so soon after finding out she was home, didn't sit well with me. The two had been dating when she was abducted all those years ago, and he's never gotten over her or what happened. Luckily, I soon got over my discomfort with him as I quickly ruled him out as being the bad guy. When bad things start happening, he's right there to help her in a way he couldn't years ago. You see Cole now works for the FBI and he uses his connections to make sure nothing that happens to Sasha is dismissed as being insignificant.

Sasha is a strong woman who is ready to conquer her fears. Unfortunately someone is not going to make that easy for her. She has supportive friends and her mom to help her face the past, but when things turn deadly, I'm not sure how Sasha managed to keep her cool or her head. If it was me, I'd have turned tail and run--fast.

Overall, I gave this one 4 1/2 roses out of 5 roses. There was plenty of suspense. drama, romance, and mystery. I enjoyed all the red herrings, twists and turns in this fast-paced novel. It was one of those books that you pick up and don't want to put down until you finish. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. This one is definitely a nail bitter with some disturbing violence geared towards women. I definitely recommend this one.

Bedmates (American Royalty #1) by Nichole Chase

Maddie McGuire is America's First Daughter. No longer a child but still living at home, she's just gotten herself in trouble and proven she still has a lot of growing up to do. Actions have consequences and while her father has managed to keep her from doing time for her crime, she's not getting off scot-free. She'll be spending the next several months working with the Vice President's son, Jake, promoting and working for the RCVA--Returning Combat Veteran Affairs program.

Jake Simmons is the vice president's son and he has a soft spot for the RCVA. Being an injured veteran himself, he knows how the homes they build can help injured veterans and their families in a big way. As he and Maddie begin work on their first house they become close as they put their differences aside. As Jake's mother notices the change in their relationship she reminds him that Maddie is off limits. That's one of the many rules she's laid out for her son over the years. The problem is Jake isn't a little boy anymore and this may be one rule he'll just have to break...  
When I realized this was a romance about a fictitious president's daughter I had some reservations about reading it. I wasn't sure I'd be pulled into the story, and it took a while for me to warm to the idea. Thankfully, after reading a handful of chapters which toggled between Jake and Maddie's viewpoints, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enchanted with this pair. Both were thrust at an early age into the political arena with every move, decision, and  mistake scrutinized by the world. Every choice, good or bad, reflecting poorly or favorably not only upon themselves, but upon their parents as well. Not many could understand or handle the pressure these two have been under, and that is partly what brings them together.

Maddie wears her heart on her sleeve, but is no wilting flower. When push comes to shove, she'll shove right back and give as good as she gets. In a world where everything comes with strings attached, she's managed to keep herself from being caught up in them. She just needs to learn to think before she acts on things she's passionate about.

There is no doubt Jake's mom is grooming him to be a political powerhouse. Already at ease at any   social function he's used to being in the world spotlight. Over the years he's learned to maneuver through the political landscape and verbal landmines with ease. Handsome, young, and charismatic, he has no problem using those traits to his advantage. While he's used to living in a world where everyone wants something from him, his mother included, he's a little tired of it all. Maddie is one of the few people he's found who is genuine and he can be himself around.

Overall, I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. It was a cute story that also brought to light the fact there are many unsung heroes out there in need of help. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any reference to the RCVA other than a store that had nothing to do with Returning Combat Veterans. I wish the author had used this book as a springboard to drum up support for a real program, but apparently she didn't. The relationship between Maddie and Jake was sweet, but got a bit complicated as Jake worked through some emotional issues that dealt with survivor's remorse and the death of a close friend. While by no means a lighthearted read, it did have its moments and I enjoyed the story. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.

"Take it from an old man, don't put things off. Time slips away so quickly, before you know it, it's gone."

Those were some of the lasts words of wisdom Wayne Traverse imparted to Luna Hill. He'd been encouraging her to talk to Colt Kendrick and fix thing with him. He silently predicted the two would be perfect for each other and, with what he was about to do, Luna could use a good man at her side. Over the years an unlikely friendship had developed between Wayne and Luna and they'd found they were two like minded individuals. He was always giving her fatherly advice and she'd enjoyed the time they spent together as well as his advice. It was a surprise, however, when upon his death he left the majority of his estate to Luna instead of his family, but he had his reasons. The will stipulated there was a way the family could earn back half of that estate, but they'd have to go through Luna to get it. Wayne may have known he'd open up a can of worms on Luna, but it's doubtful he realized it would quickly morph into a barrel of vipers. Luna's life was about to get complicated.


This was another great story by Jennifer Ryan. The position that Wayne puts Luna in was by no means ideal, but, interestingly enough, provided the perfect situation to test one's mettle. In this case, Colt stepped up to the plate. Talk about your accelerated courtships, this one definitely wins the prize. I was equal parts appalled and impressed by what Wayne did. His relatives showed just how low some people will stoop when they get mad about an inheritance that goes to someone they don't believe deserves it instead of them.

I felt so bad for Luna, but admit Wayne chose his successor well. Luna was more than generous when it came to dealing with Wayne's disappointed family. Wayne wanted the land he loved to go to someone who would love and tend to it as he would when he was gone. He found a kindred spirit in that regard with Luna. Thankfully for Luna when things got rough and a tab bit scary, Colt was there for her to lean on.

Overall, I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. It had a high dose of suspense paired nicely with equally high dose of romance and embellished by a touch of mystery. I've actually begun reading 'Stone Cold Cowboy' to see if there were any sneak peeks into how this relationship began. While Luna and Colt have known each other for a while, she'd been his friend's girlfriend. It kind of brought to mind the 1981 song 'Jessie's Girl' by Rick Springfield...

'Jessie is a friend, yeah
I know he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine'


On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. There was definitely some major chemistry going on between these two. FYI, it should be noted these two didn't get together until after Luna broke up with the other guy.

Glory Greenleaf knew she was destined for greatness. Everyone who listened to one of her songs or heard her sing knew she had talent. Her plan after graduating from high school had been to leave town and get discovered. She'd been saving for years to do just that, but life had other plans. Just days before her planned exit her brother was arrested and in order to keep her mother from losing her house, she'd had to use her savings to help pay what she could on the mortgage.  Now, several months later, Glory is still living in the same small town hoping to one day make it big.

Deputy Eli Barlow had known the Greenleafs for years and Glory's brother, Jonah, had been his best friend. He'd once harbored a crush on Glory and, truth be told, still does. After arresting Jonah, he'd known she'd never forgive him and the one kiss they'd shared would likely be his last. While romance seems off the table, he's determined to gain her friendship back. He'll try to earn her forgiveness all the while knowing it won't be easy. Glory is fiercely loyal to her friends and family and she believes what Eli did was an all out betrayal. 
When I first started reading this story, I thought it would be your average run of the mill girl makes it big in the music industry type of romance story. After pressing on for a couple of chapters, however, I started to get drawn into the story by a surprisingly multifaceted, complex, and real to life set of characters. It soon became clear this was a surprisingly heartwarming and touching story that had individuals with clear cut dreams, goals, set backs, disappointments, and issues. In other words, I became totally hooked.

Glory is the type of person who is tough as nails, determined, loyal to a fault, and tenacious as they come. While her family is far from perfect, it has always been filled with love and affection. When Eli arrested Jonah he was doing his job, but to Glory it felt like a betrayal. The two have never talked about what happened and the arrest hangs between them like a barrier they can't get past. While Eli is determined to make it up to her, he needs to get her to talk to him first.The thing Glory doesn't realize is that Eli feels betrayed as well. His best friend put him in a position he never wanted to be in. 

I couldn't help but give this one 5 out or 5 roses. I fell in love with this couple, It was like watching two good friends you know are meant to be together finally get it right. Glory's journey to get noticed and gain a break in the music industry was like being on an emotional roller coaster filled with highs and lows accompanied by a lot of twists and turns. As I always say, little things (aka details) mean a lot, and this tale was jam packed with them and a gesture on Eli's part that turned the story into something special. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. A wonderful story I HIGHLY recommend.

India Shaw is not the type of person who settles down or stays in one place. Nor is she the type to attach herself to anyone or anywhere. Some might call her a free spirit, but truly she's just flighty--afraid that if she commits to someone or something she'll be disappointed. She graduated with honors from  the school of hard knocks and she's still in a perpetual state of the fight or flight. She, of course, prefers the latter. The only exception being, Chelsea, her sister not by blood but by circumstances. The foster sister who is the only staple in her life. So when Indi finds herself in the delicate position of being pregnant, she turns tail and runs to her. The only problem is Chelsea's on her honeymoon, and when Indi finds herself in jail after breaking into Chelsea's posh San Francisco apartment she is forced to call the last person she'd want to have help her--Michael Black. He's the guy who is responsible for her current predicament. Can anyone saw awkward?
This was a sweet and sexy little story that could have turned out badly for India. Luckily, Michael was an absolute darling and handled everything quite well. While many men would question the paternity, he really didn't have a problem believing her. Michael had been free of a relationship when the two had gotten together, but since he'd gotten back together with his ex. This complicates matters as Michael was on the cusp of proposing to his long term girlfriend, Skylar. While Skylar seemed like his perfect match in so many ways, something was missing from the relationship. It's why Michael and Skylar had broken up at the time of Chelsea and Adam's wedding.

What was fun about the story was the reversal of roles between men and women. Three months prior, when Indi and he had gotten together, Indi had snuck out the morning after their fling and Michael hadn't heard from nor seen her since. Usually it's the other way around. Likewise, usually there are meddling mothers in books, but this time there were a couple of meddling dads.

Indi was a likable, complex individual with a lot of emotional baggage to deal with. Michael was an absolute doll who'd grown up with the knowledge that family came first and helps Indi to trust again. These two seemingly opposite individuals counterbalanced each other to make a great match. Her wildness counterbalancing his serious and controlling nature and vice versa. Interestingly, Indi wasn't the only one with some baggage and Indi helps Michael regain some of the joy in life he'd been missing.  

Overall, I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. It was a lovely story that brought a smile to my eyes and a grin to my face. The chemistry between these two was scorching and they lit up the pages. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
