My Friday Read

I know I haven't posted My Friday Read in a while and that's because instead of reading I was writing. I'm just finishing up an Italian brother duet, due out the Spring of 2015, and then I'll be back reading like crazy as I'm hoping to have a little summer break. Squee!

But in the few spare moments I have, I've started following The Chatsfields series. Have you checked it out yet? You really should. I'm hooked. :-)

But before we get to that I wanted to give you an update:

And now on with My Friday Read. So far I've read:

FYI, when I made this post this novella was FREE on Amazon!

Introducing The Chatsfield in this fantastic prequel, USA TODAY bestselling author Melanie Milburne invites you to step inside the world's most exclusive luxury hotel empire!

Where secrets lurk behind every door…

A whisper, a rumor, a scandal!

Glitz, luxury and decadence—Juliet Montague should be having the time of her life. Her friend's hen party is being held at the extravagant Chatsfield Hotel, London, but when she is surrounded by perfect, ultra-stylish women, each with rings on their fingers, a fake fiancé seems her only defense.

Until that very same fake fiancé arrives at the party! Now she must persuade Marcus Bainbridge, her older brother's gorgeous best friend, not to give the game away. But as the charade deepens, will the lines between what's real and what's fantasy start to blur?

Welcome to The Chatsfield, London! - Collect all 8 fantastic titles - May–December 2014

This so far is my favorite book in the series. I thought the sheikh was quite gentleman and I swooned. :-)

FYI, at the time I created the post this book was on sale for $1.99 on Amazon.

When the Sheikh comes to town… 

Sheikh Sayed of Zeena Sarha and his harem of beautiful women are staying at the exclusive, opulent Chatsfield Hotel, London, for the last stop on his worldwide tour before his wedding. But when his engagement is unceremoniously broken, Sayed sets his sights on his sexy chambermaid! 

Liyah Amari only took the position as chambermaid to find the truth about her birth father. But her search ends in heartache, leaving Liyah vulnerable to this powerful Sheikh's desires. Now their one night of passion could result in a scandalous consequence for the proud Sheikh! 

I'll be honest, with this one I wasn't so sure about it at first, but the more I read the more I liked Lucca and by the end, he'd totally won me over. :-)

When the Chatsfield heir comes to play… 

Lucca Chatsfield has one simple motto: no rings, no strings. Adored wherever he goes, he has yet to meet a woman who can resist him. Until he's sent to the small principality of Preitalle and meets his greatest challenge ever…. 

Poised and polished, princess Charlotte does not do drama. The very last person she needs interfering in her life is this reckless playboy! Lottie is determined to resist Lucca's seduction, but his charm is potent, and practically perfect Lottie finds herself risking everything for just one more touch….

And this leads us to My Friday Read...

When the gentleman places his bet… 

As the darling of London's party scene, Cara Chatsfield isn't surprised when her father's CEO sends her to Las Vegas to host The Chatsfield's world-famous poker tournament. And if behind the glitz and glamour there's a girl hurt by her past? She'll never tell.  

Aidan Kelly detests women like Cara, but when his biggest rival includes Cara in the stakes, Aidan must win—and not just for her protection! But getting to know the stunning socialite, he discovers a beautiful, vulnerable young woman awoken by his own personal brand of passion!
