Synopsis:

An Anthology of three hot Geek Guy Romances by Em Taylor

Bounty
When Gemma Scott’s shuttle crash lands on Alcatraz prison planet, she’s sure of one thing: if the impact doesn’t kill her, the inmates will. She wakes up in the hut of a convicted terrorist and wonders how long it will be until the handsome but dangerous man discovers she was the one who arrested him two years earlier. As their attraction grows, they work together to help Gemma escape the dangerous planet. But they can’t deny the sparks that fly between them.

Fan Girl and the Geek
Rhett Williams, the hunky captain on the TV show Starship Einstein, is coming to a convention in the UK, and Shona Ross is determined to meet him. Having spent years dreaming about the handsome actor, she nurtures dreams of becoming more than just a fan. When Rhett does not live up to expectations and leaves Shona despondent, Daniel Adams, the geeky kid from the show, befriends her. Only he’s no longer a geeky kid. In fact, her attraction to him is almost interplanetary. Can Shona get over her infatuation, forget about Daniel’s weak role, and see the man for what he is now?

The Little Sex Shop Around the Corner
All Cassidy Moore wanted to do was support her little lingerie boutique by selling a few sex toys to boost her profits. But the local Tory Member of Parliament is gunning for her and the Small Business Association don’t approve either. Everyone appears to be against her. That is until she meets the new comic books store owner. Handsome, rich and kinda geek chic, Gavin Wallace seems to have it going on, and he tells her he’s on her side. They really hit it off.

Of course, when Gavin has to tell Cassidy that John Wallace, the local Member of Parliament is his dad, it seems she begins to wonder whose side he’s really on. With passion an irresistible force drawing them ever closer, will his posh upbringing continue to be an issue. Can he help the two people he cares about find common ground? Can Cassidy learn to trust Gavin with her business, her heart and her body? Their shops may be just around the corner but their backgrounds are miles apart.

Three intelligent guys, three great stories. Whose arms will you choose?

What I thought about the book:
My second Feehan series (and second book)was even better than the first! I loved this. The Ghostwalkers are such a great concept.
A great book to read if you love PNR but want something a bit different.

Goodreads Rating: 4.18/5
 
 
Why I read this:
 
Synopsis:

What has she done? With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she’s found sanctuary.

Where can she hide? In this world teaming with unusual creatures walks the most exotic of them all. His name is Rio. A native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, he is something to be desired. Possessed of secrets of his own, he is something to be feared.

Whom can she trust? But as Rachael’s past looms as oppressively as the heat of the forest, and as Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachael fears that her isolated haven has become an inescapable hell…

 
What I thought about the book:
My first Christine Feehan book. I’m amazed it took me so long to read her, she’s a bit of a PNR juggernaut! Anyway, this is a perfect paranormal romance shapeshifter book. Ticks all the boxes. Alpha male, insta-love, strong willed damsel in distress and of course sexy times.

Goodreads Rating: 3.84/5
 
 
Synopsis:

When the devil meets an angel…

Country bred Lucy Craddock-Hayes is content with her quiet life. Until the day she trips over an unconscious man—a naked unconscious an—and loses her innocence forever.

He can take her to heaven…

Viscount Simon Iddesleigh was nearly beaten to death by his enemies. Now he’s hell-bent on vengeance. But as Lucy nurses him back to health, her honesty startles his jaded sensibilities—even as it ignites a desire that threatens to consume them both.

Or to hell…

Charmed by Simon’s sly wit, urbane manners, and even his red-heeled shoes, Lucy falls hard and fast for him. Yet as his honor keeps him from ravishing her, his revenge sends his attackers to her door. As Simon wages war on his foes, Lucy wages her own war for his soul using the only weapon she has—her love…

 
What I thought about the book:
This was a beautiful story without getting sappy (a real danger when it comes to romance). The romance was great but I really liked Simon’s revenge story-line. Very exciting!
