Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.

Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

One sexy fire captain. One Cajun chef, One combustible kitchen…

When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she doesn’t want to taste. Colby is counting down the days till she can leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas.

Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. He knows he should focus on finding the perfect mother for his daughter, but when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason doesn’t want to say no.

As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned

Week in Review – 10/26/13

Week In Review Books

Welcome to our Week in Review. Sorry we’re a little late this week–we’ve been busy! Each week, we’ll let you know what we’ve been reading lately, whether it’s super steamy Romance, our latest Young Adult obsession, or anything in between. We’ll tell you what we love and what falls short for us, too. And we’ll recap the Book Tours and Giveaways that are going on, as well as let you know the Book Reviews we’ve posted over the last week, just in case you missed anything. Without further adieu, here’s what we’ve been reading this week:

Sandi: Well, I’ve got a “thing” this weekend (Texas Book Festival! Woohoo!) so I’ve been kind of distracted and not reading about Steamy Guys…until today! Go figure, right? So! I am in the process of meeting a new hero — he’s not entirely human as this is a paranormal romance, but I am not deterred. Terak’s big, protective, and he has wings…! Yes, I confess to a longstanding crush on on sale for $2.99, with part of the proceeds going to charity. Cool deal, no?

Meg: Oooooh! Have fun at the TBF! Can’t wait to see what you pick up! (That was a lot of !!! so you know I’m reeeaaalllly excited for you.)

Betsy: I have been lamest of lame this week in the reading department. I have been working on other people’s unpublished stuff and can’t even talk about it. ;-) I have, however, continued my re-read of the Outlander series. I finished tomorrow. Then I have to wait….until March 25th. Wonder how many more times I will read these books before they come out. Hopefully I will come out from under my Outlander coma and read some other books next week.

Meg: This was a good (and super emotional) reading week for me! I read by Katie McGarry. I’m hoping for some swoony boy time, and Katie can definitely deliver in that department!

Kassiah: I loved by Katie McGarry, so I’m excited to see what you think about Crash Into You, Meg. And sooooo jealous that you get to go to Texas Book Festival, Sandi!

This week, I feel like I don’t know if I’m coming or going. It was Homecoming Week for my kids’ athletic association so lots to do. Pretty much everything I’ve read has been posted here and will be listed down below. I’m reading right now and looooove Cane.

{Review} Without You by Brooklyn Skye

Our Rating: four-stars
I’m the knight on the white horse in her eyes, the one who broke down her defenses after her sister’s death until she realized she was capable of love. To her—aside from my name, Torrin Kingsley—I’m perfect.

But there’s a sliver of my past I’ve never shared with her. One that is now haunting me with every breath I take. One she is starting to raise her brow to.

I’m not certain how much longer I can keep it from her. To be honest, I don’t know that it would make a difference anyway, because it seems no matter which path I choose, they all lead to the same end point. A place without Quinn.

My demons run bone deep. I guess burying them forever wasn’t possible.
