Absolutely beautiful, it’s been a little while since I’ve read a Diana Palmer book, but wow it did not disappoint me at all, utterly fantastic.


As always I will not give spoilers but, I can say if you love cowboys, romance, adventure with some humour characters you will root for, a hero and heroine who both have many things to overcome but an amazing journey on the way then you will love this, I also having read many of Diana’s books in the past recognised lots of names and cameo appearances to which I was thrilled to have updates on.



Thank you so much dear lady for writing it and #millsandbooninsiders for offering me the chance to read it


Shell’s Review of A Christmas Bride for the King by Abby Green

Posted on

513js24aGILMy Review

I’m a big fan of Abby’s books and this one didn’t disappoint,  this is the second book in this series.

At first I thought I wouldn’t like Salim, and as I carried on reading Abby worked her magic and by the end of the book I loved Salim.

Charlotte comes across as prim and proper, and she’s not keen on Christmas (I mean how can you not like Christmas).  But Charlotte does have a reason for this, but you will have to read the book to find out.

Charlotte soon looses the prim and proper look, when she and Salim have to shelter from a sandstorm when they are visiting tribe people in the desert.

As you will remember Salim had a twin sister, who died when she was young.  Luckily that question is answered in the book and we find out why Salim doesn’t want to be king.

For me the big question is does Salim want Zafir as his brother or would he want to be alone in his kingdom.  And for that question to be answered you will just have to read the book.

I will give this 5/5 stars and this comes highly recommeded.

This book is available to buy from Amazon and all other retailers.

I received this ARC from the author in return for a honest review.

Wow definitely doesn’t cover how much I loved these stories. I pretty much knew I’d love this anthology but absolutely love it a lot more than I thought I would if that is even possible.


Every single story in this anthology blew me away in the best possible sense, I definitely cried a few times for the best reasons. Loved seeing so many characters aswell as older characters already well established by Kristen before there was a universe.


All the authors brilliant as always have done themselves proud and I very highly recommend this anthology.

Daring Widow.

By Cerise DeLand



Blurb :




Marianne Roland is a widow who has left behind her past including memories of an intemperate husband and the hardships of the American civil war. Now she enjoys the comforts her wealthy Uncle Killian bestows on all his family. As she watches others fall in love, she decides to find an amusing lover for herself, but only for one enchanting night.


Andre Claude Marceau, Duc de Remy and Prince d’Aumale, finds Marianne’s joie de vivre enchanting—and her plan for a temporary affair with him impossible.

Will she insist on a passing fancy? Or will she abandon the terrors of her past to embrace a brighter future beside a man who offers her a grand love affair with life?


Goodreads My Rating 5*

Naughtiness 4*


Absolutely awesome, are words that come to my mind in regards to this book, the sister book to Wild Lily and second in the series, I utterly love it.


The balance between story adventure love and everything else packed beautifully I to this book are brilliant. Must admit cried more than once, but for opposing reasons as I was feeling very much for our heroine from very early on even in the previous book.


This story very much captivates, pulls you in then doesn’t want to let you go even at the end of the book you want more, I’m so glad this is not the end of the series and cannot wait to read more.



Brilliantly done as always Cerise Thankyou dear lady. Xxx

Shell’s Review of Buying His Bride of Convenience by Michelle Smart

Posted on

51lxOjrUm2LMy Review

This is the third and last book in Michelle’s mini series.

In this book we meet Daniele, who has always been the happy go lucky type of guy, but then Pieta died in the helicopter crash.  Which then changed Daniele’s life forever, and he had a lot more responsibility.

But there is one thing that Daniele won’t do and that’s getting married, he just simply refuses to do it.

That is until he meets Eva Bergen, who is with the Blue Train Aid Agency, on the Caribbean island of Caballeros.  As you may remember from the last book, this is the island that the hospital is being built in Pieta’s name.

To me Eva comes across as a strong feisty woman but she also has a secret, but underneath she just wants to be cherished and loved.  The first meeting with Daniele doesn’t go to planned, he spent the whole evening flirting with Eva, but doesn’t really get to know her.

I can’t really go into much detail, because that would spoil the book.  All I will say is Daniele offers Eva a deal, which is so romantic (NOT).  For me this book was fantastic, I loved every second of this book and highly recommend it.

For me this book is 5/5 stars.  This book available to buy from and all other retailers.

I received this ARC copy from the author in return for a honest review.
