A Wyoming Christmas to Remember
Author: Melissa Senate
Harlequin Imprint: Special Edition
Stricken with temporary amnesia, Maddie Wolfe can’t remember a single thing about her life…or her boy-next-door husband, Sawyer. But even with electricity crackling between them, it turns out their fairy tale’s careening toward disaster. When Sawyer’s unexpectedly thrust into caring for his newborn twin nephews, will he finally change his mind about being a dad and give Maddie the family of her dreams—and his?
Rancher’s Wild Secret
Author: Maisey Yates
Harlequin Imprint: Desire
He's come to Gold Valley Vineyards for revenge…
Not to fall for the enemy!
The renowned spokesperson for her family’s wine empire, Emerson Maxfield is engaged to a man solely to win her father’s approval, and the sheltered beauty never, ever steps a toe out of line. Which, to rancher Holden McCall, makes her the perfect tool to exact his secret revenge. All he wants is for her family to pay for what they did to his mother, but his plan to publicly destroy the wedding of the year starts to disintegrate as his lethal seduction ensnares his heart, too…
Now this is the one that I couldn't say no to! I mean come on, it's MAISEY YATES and if you've ever read any of the Gold Valley series, you simply know that you can't miss a page!
Here's the thing, I learned from the last Harlequin Desire book I read (which happen to be from this same series by the same author) that they are shorter stories, heavy on the romance, and more on the steamy/blush worthy side. This time around that description fit like a glove, but the story itself, I was a bit up in the air. I mean, I liked Emerson, and initially I liked Holden, but things go to you-know-where rather quickly and that turns what they had from a lust filled encounter of sexual expression into something much bigger, and more daunting for them all. It's definitely an enemies to lovers trope candidate and the chemistry is off the charts, but I don't know. I'm just not certain I bought the whole big bad sexy cowboy heck bent on revenge turns out to be someone that loves so deeply, cares so much, he doesn't even realize it himself, and is truly a diamond in the rough seas of love. On the other hand, I highly respect Emerson's ability to push forward through the unappetizing options offered, accept her fate so to speak, yet also freely state where she stands with him, her heart, and her life. They didn't meet in any version of what one would call ideal circumstances, but neither could deny that the still waters that ran deeply through them both cared nothing for the bad blood between them, and everything about what they could be if only they'd get out of their own way.
In the end, it's a quick read that's sure to warm up your holiday nights and a sexy addition to the Gold Valley series from author Maisey Yates that fans won't want to miss. Be sure to check out the rest of the tour for more on this title as well as the others featured in Harlequin's FALL FOR THE HOLIDAYS selections!
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.
In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it's been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn't have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
