It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I just started reading this one.  The excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter



Russell "Ross" Edmond Jr. sipped his scotch, relishing the smoky flavor with hints of caramel, fruit and a bit of salt, while staring out the window of the Texas Cattleman's Club meeting room at the beautiful couple currently wrapped around each other in a passionate embrace.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Being a single mother with a very demanding job, she constantly battled the guilt of not being there enough for her son.   Of missing out on so many little things - like his giggle at a TV show or cuddling with him at bedtime.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

He's going to claim his child and the woman who got away...from USA TODAY bestselling author Naima Simone.

Will they ever learn...

that giving in to desire is playing with fire?

After discovering he has a secret son, oil heir Ross Edmond isn't letting Charlotte Jarrett walk away again. He proposes they move in together--to share their son...and a bed. But Charlotte has secrets, and Ross doesn't know the real reason his family's former chef left town three years ago--and they still have a powerful enemy who could bring them both down...

From Harlequin Desire: Luxury, scandal, desire--welcome to the lives of the American elite.

Visit Royal, Texas, and find out if the Edmond family is all that they seem in Texas Cattleman's Club: Heir Apparent.

  1. Ooh this sounds like it could be fun and steamy, with a side-helping of suspense! I hope you enjoy this one! I hope you have a lovely weekend and do drop by my Friday Post if you have the time! - Juli @ A Universe in Words

  2. Sounds intriguing. Hope you enjoy it.

  3. Intriguing snippets! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE PERFECT GUESTS”

  4. Funny, I've never had the same experience the few times I tried Scotch. The opening line makes it sound delicious--maybe I tried the wrong brand, lol!

  5. I love a good Harlequin and this sounds right up there! Happy weekend!

  6. Sounds like quite the potential for a lot of conflict. The difference between the beginning and the sweet 56 says it all.

  7. I can relate all too well to the Friday 56 excerpt. This sounds like it would be a good one. I wonder what she's hiding. I hope you are enjoying this! Have a great week, Yvonne.
