Nico met the love of his life when he was seventeen.
Immediately, he realizes that the gap in their ages is too significant to make a move on her until she’s legal in the eyes of the law. So he joins the United States Navy, killing time until he can come home to her again.
But a tragedy strikes while Georgia is alone and vulnerable, and with no other recourse, Georgia leaves, disappearing without a trace.
After months of searching, he finds her, but quickly realizes that she needs the time to herself to work out her problems on her own.
So he leaves her be, knowing that if she ever felt anything for him, she’d come back home to him.
But it takes her years to return, and in those years, Nico changes, too.
He’s seen too much. Done too much. Lost too much.
He lives his life as a SWAT officer for KPD, goes through the motions of everyday life, but only as half a man. And not even the good half. The US military saw to that.
When the two finally come back together, one question remains. Will she love him as the man he is now, or leave him because he’s not the same man he used to be?
Well it's official!!
You just can't go wrong when you pick up a Lani Lynn Vale Book..
Every single book I've read and I've read EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. has been stellar!!
Nico was broody, protective, caring, just Perfect in every way that counts
He knew Georgia was the one from when he first laid eyes on her but being brought up catholic as well as being 5 yrs her senior kept him from claiming her as his until the time was right.
Georgia was smart, competitive and beautiful inside and out! A tragedy took everything away when she was just 18 but made her a survivor. She did what she had to do for her brothers and took all the crap she was dished, planted it and nourished it till it flourished!!
Both Nico and Georgia had their pasts to deal with but one thing that pulled at my heart strings was they BOTH knew they were meant to be, they didn't deny it or have all the typical misunderstandings playing havoc. When the time was right they got the HEA they both knew they deserved.
I've said it before and I'll say it again this spin-off series is amazing.. the vibe is more subdued but still sexy & hot as hell..
We get our laughs and catch up with old friends as well as new.. what's there not to LOVE!!
Anxiously awaiting the next in Code 11 -KPD Swat...
“Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.” ― Oscar Wilde
Author Nicola Royse dreamed of Scottish Highlanders as a teen then wrote about them as an adult. Always looking but never finding her own White Knight, she still held out hope that he would one day ride up on his trusty steed. He rode up all right, on a silver Harley with heat in his eyes and a detective's badge on his hip while she and her friends plotted her first contemporary romantic suspense. Of course, life couldn't' imitate art without a killer on the loose, one that had Nicola and her friends in his sights.
Detective Dallas Vaughn dedicated his life to catching killers. Then one day he bumped into the girl-next-door, and all that changed. Now he's her White Knight fighting against a Dark Prince—one who would love to see her dead.
WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you're not a romantic at heart.
ANOTHER Fantastic read by C.P. Smith
She gave it all to us....
Total Alpha extraordinaire
and an amazing HEA!!!!
This is one of my auto buy authors.. Her males are True Alphas and her females are Kickass Heroines! Hell what more can you ask for?
What a fun steamy read..with so many Laugh Out Loud moments I couldn't keep count and the suspense had me on the edge of my seat.
We have author Nicola Royse that speaks with an old world lilt due to all the highland romance novels she's written at times and we have Dallas Mother F~ing Vaughn a jaded detective that oozes badass yumminess at first glance..
"By eight o'clock I was foxed(that's regency speak)" ~ Nicola
The story-line got me from the first sentence and I couldn't put it down until the very last word!!! It was so engaging & hot it was impossible to do so.
"I'm not a hermit, Bo, and my idea of fun is not hanging around strip clubs while you attempt to make it "rain" when you can only afford to make it "drizzle". ~ Nicole to her twin brother Bo
Nicola and her brothers along with her BFF's and her IMAGINATION were the high-lite of the story every character had their role and they all executed it flawlessly whether dead as a door nail or a suspect!
"Who among us wants to be the one who gets up when there is a bump in the night? Equal pay and equal rights is one thing, but when it comes to choosing someone who will protect you and your children, do you want Peewee Herman or Conan the Barbarian? ~ Nicola
Please Keep them coming I'm a total FAN!!!
P.S. Dallas in a Kilt would have been EPIC!!! hahahaha
Luke Roberts came to the small lazy town of Kilgore, Texas with one thing on his mind: Forgetting. He wanted to forget why he left. Forget those emerald green eyes that haunted his dreams. And forget how it felt to have his heart ripped out of his chest by a woman who didn’t like the fact that he had a child. It was something he’d been doing a damn fine job of doing, too. Until Reese smashed through every one of his defenses, and made him feel again.
Reese Doherty was just trying to do the best for her little girl. So she moved to the little boomtown nearly an hour from where she grew up to be the school nurse for Kilgore’s littlest people. That’s where she met him. The SWAT officer and the man that would change her life forever. The sexy man who liked to drive fast, and live life like it should be lived. He drove her crazy, and became something she could barely live without.
But Luke was a hero. A man used to risking his life to make the world a safer place. Something Reese had to decide whether she could handle or not. Preferably before her and her daughter became too attached.
Just when she’s ready to give him her whole heart, her world takes a huge hit, and everything she thought she knew wasn’t as it seemed.
Luke wasn’t a quitter, though. Damn far from it, and he’d prove to her that he’d be there when the dust settled. Whether she wanted him to be or not.
Well it should come as no surprise I Loved Luke & Reese's story
And Code -11 KPD SWAT is already headed to be another kick-ass spin off series
Center Mass definitely had a more serious, suspenseful undertone..
So much so I had to bust out the tissues with this one..
Reese was just to cute with her Super Hero Scrubs and her daughter was her world.
"I wasn't a fan of animated movies. I also wasn't a fan of theaters.
But I'd do just about anything for my daughter, even sit in a theater with kids who wouldn't shut the fuck up." ~Reese
Reese was a bit jaded when it came to relationships due to her ex but of course Luke managed to weasel himself in.
"A man's shirt on a woman's naked body is like raising a flag on a conquered fortress." ~Luke
Luke was just the perfect father ~ I love to see (and read about) hot daddies that would lay the world at their kiddies feet. We got his back story which I was looking forward to since his first appearance.
As usual when reading anything by Lani Lynn Vale (which I have read EVERYTHING) you get the Protective Alpha,
Family Banter, Loyal Friends, a great plot (this one a lot more intense) and Humor!
"You know, if you were a vegetable, you'd be a cabbitch!" ~Old man
We also got to meet new characters and got to see what the old ones have been up to..
Another great read and I'm left again anxiously anticipating the next!
Carter has spent years protecting her from this man, but now Layla has fallen right into his hands. With his world crashing down around him, Carter won't stop until he gets the vengeance he deserves. But will he succeed in saving the only person he has ever loved?
Warning: Vol. 3 contains triple the steam, triple the love, and triple the cheese. Not responsible for Kindles covered in Velveeta.
I was so ready for this installment.. The way Vol 2 ended was nuts.
I was craving more of Carter's Dirty Mouth, his Over the Top protective antics
and most definitely those lovin' scenes which were scorchers..
"His warm mouth eats at my pussy. Shifting again, Carter spreads my legs wider using his broad shoulders. Sleepily opening my eyes, I look down at what I've woken up to every day for the past two weeks."
SOOO yea where can I find ME a Carter?
This Naughty, Super Hot mini series is freaking AWESOME!!
I can't say it enough it's Fun, Suspenseful, Erotic, Sweet and addicting!
Carter is so over the top about everything Cherry it's endearing!!
Carter & Cherry were too cute!
& that Epilogue was the BEST!!!
Go Read It you won't be disappointed..
Need Vol 4
We are getting some Saint and Mama.. **grinning BIG**
