Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 205 - His Wicked Charm by Candace Camp, A Cowboy's Luck by Vicki Lewis Thompson

His Wicked Charm (The Mad Morelands, #6)His Wicked Charm by Candace Camp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You have to love both Lilah Holcutt and Constantine Moreland. While Lilah tries to follow all the rules Con seem to follow none. After all he is a mad Moreland. Turns out that in spite of all that Lilah tries to do her family is just as mad. This has a big touch of the paranormal (the other books in the series had some but not as much) while following the rules of historical romances. Lilah and Con tell their story with great dialog, with others and between the two. I was surprised by who turned out to be the villain. The afterward was a nice addition. It provided a window into action where we only saw the result. Nice to get the inside scoop. This is an interesting and fun series to follow.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

A Cowboy's Luck (The McGavin Brothers Book 8)A Cowboy's Luck by Vicki Lewis Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Roxanne Sawyer and Michael Murphy are side characters in previous books. Now they get their own story. Turns out they have a lot in common but are very different in their approach to things. Michael moves very fact, Roxanne looks a long time before she leaps. However, both have looked for a small town to make their home and have arrived in the same town. I loved the two characters. Michael is so secure and does not mind admitting that he is not a born cowboy; in fact he grew up in Chicago. Roxanne is not that secure. She had a relationship that ended very badly. That is the set up for their romance and boy oh boy does it really heat up fast. A fun tale that sets up the next book in the series. I am really looking forward to that on as it features two more mature people.
