"Construction Beauty Queen" by Sara Daniel was a very good contemporary
romantic read.  This was another good love story that evolved around Matt
and Veronica that was sweet and funny read.  All of the characters were colorful
and well developed and some really having you to laughing out loud.  This was a emotional story in that you find Veronica was just trying to 'fulfull her dreams against everyones will' especially those towns people who did like or appreciate her even being there.  "Her grandfather tells her she can work for his construction firm for thirty days, and if she is successful then she can take over his distribution company he owns."

Then there was Matt who what the owner of the 'Kortville Construction Company'who wasn't happy that she was there and having her work for him.  Now, what is this…

"Caden's Vow" by Sarah McCarty was this authors' 6 in the series..Hell's Eight
# 6.  This novel was a good western, historical, erotica romance that is all rolled
up into one good novel.  I found this series just a love story of Maddie and Caden.Both of these two people were 'broken human beings, one very obviously needing restoration and healing after years of sexual abuse since the age of eight."  "She was rescued in one of the previous books and brought to live with the Hell's Eight and their wives."

Caden had some serious wounds of finding out just who he really was and who
he wanted to be on "set on fullfilling a promise to his father, going to the gold mine." So, what will come of Maddie and Caden?  This is where I say you must picke up "Caden's …

"Innocent Tears" by Iris Blobel was a wonderful well written novel that once you start reading it will be hard to put down.  Definitely the 'six year old girl' Nadine stole this novel for me in her first appearance in the read.  "When six year old Nadine peers over the reception counter of a big city hotel and tells the receptionist,My mum's dead, the reader's attention is immediately gained."  Nadine's  grandparents had been taking care of her but now wanted to give her to her biological father, Flynn who was a business lawyer in Melbourne and didn't  know of his daughters' existence.  Be ready for a lots of drama to come from all of this situation.  The characters Emma, Flynn, Nadine, the grandparents and Jack  are all well developed and colorful , and  really comes
