Karina Halle - Egy lépéssel közelebb
"Mosolyt csal az arcodra." - Shh Moms Reading A lány azt hiszi, a fickó csak egy öntelt szépfiú. A fickó úgy gondolja, a lány maga a megtestesült prüdéria. De most olyan ajánlatot készül tenni neki, amire biztosan nem fog nemet mondani. Nicola Price-nak mindene megvolt: remek karrier, tökéletes barát, elképesztő cipőgyűjtemény és egy szuper lakás San Francisco legjobb környékén. De amikor váratlanul teherbe esik, és az a mocsok fiúja otthagyja őt a slamasztikában egyedül, Nicola tökéletes élete egyszeriben felfordul, és úgy is marad. Néhány évvel később Nicola már egy ötéves kislány büszke, egyedülálló anyukájaként és egy hatalmas hazugságban él. Alig tudja fenntartani rossz környékbeli lakását, és minden hapsi menekülőre fogja, amint meghallja, hogy egyedül neveli a gyerekét. Küszködik és fél - és sehol sincs az életében, amiről korábban azt hitte, hogy 31 éves korában tartani fog. A mentőangyala egy magas, jóképű és gazdag skót férfi személyében jelenik meg: ő Bram McGregor, Nicola jó barátjának, Lindennek a bátyja. Bram tud egyet s mást a büszkeségről, és amikor Nicola körülményei tragikussá válnak, felajánl a nőnek egy apartmant a saját házában. Tökéletes egyezségnek tűnik a dolog egészen addig, amíg Nicola nem bánja, hogy Bram közelében éljen, aki a nagylelkűsége ellenére minden adandó alkalommal szembeszáll a nő elképzeléseivel. De az életben semmi sincs ingyen, és ahogy Nicola beteszi a lábát Bram házába, rájön, hogy a titokzatos szépfiú többe kerül majd neki, mint gondolta volna. Akár a szívét is elveszítheti. Ezekkel a McGregor testvérekkel csak a baj van. Ha tetszett a történet keresd a McGregor testvérek további részeit.
Karina Halle - Éjszaka a tiéd leszek
"Levett a lábamról." - Aestas Book Blog Egy nyughatatlan skót rögbijátékos, aki nem a szabályok szerint játszik. Egy nyüzsgő férfifaló, aki már feladta a szerelmet. Amikor Lachlan és Kayla találkozik, az ellentétek nem csupán vonzzák egymást, de egyenesen szét is robbannak. Kayla Moore-t sosem zavarta, hogy forróvérű férfifaló hírében állt. Legalábbis addig nem, amíg be nem töltötte a harmadik x-et és a legjobb barátnői, Stephanie és Nicola meg nem állapodtak Linden és Bram McGregor oldalán, otthagyva Kaylát kakukktojásnak. Belefáradt, hogy ő legyen a gyertyatartó, az egyéjszakás kalandjaival és a sehova nem vezető randijaival San Franciscóban, ezért megfogadja, hogy önmegtartóztató életet kezd élni, és a férfiakat a háttérbe szorítja. Egészen addig működik is a dolog, amíg meg nem pillantja Linden és Bram unokatestvérét, Lachlan McGregort. Lachlan ugyanis az erotikus képzelgései élő megtestesítője: magas, tetovált, és olyan masszív, mint egy kamion. Könyörtelen tekintetével és sikeres rögbikarrierével Edinburgh-ban Lachlan olyan fajta férfinek tűnik, aki miatt Kayla azonnal kidobná az ablakon a fogadalmát. De Lachlant csendes és komoly viselkedése miatt nehéz kiismerni, pláne közel kerülni hozzá. Aztán egy hosszú, felejthetetlen közös éjszaka után Kayla rádöbben, hogy sokkal több van ebben a merengő macsóban, mint amit csupán szemmel látni enged magából. De annak ellenére, hogy vibrál köztük a levegő, Lachlan nem maradhat Amerikában. Kaylának döntenie kell. Vajon képes lesz gyökerestül kitépni addigi életét és megváltoztatni olyasvalakiért, akit alig ismer, és kockáztatja, hogy megégeti magát újra? Néha a szerelem csak egy játék, amit játszani kell. Karina Halle, a New York Times, a Wall Street Journal és a USA Today bestsellerírója. Az egymástól függetlenül is izgalmas Nem lennék nélküled és az Egy lépéssel közelebb című kötetek után az Éjszaka a tiéd leszek című regényben ezúttal az esélyeké és a szerelemért vállalt kockáztatásé a főszerep.

"Még sosem olvastam hasonlót." - Love Book Triangle A nő élete egy pillanat alatt változott meg. És a férfi volt az egyetlen, aki ezt megakadályozhatta volna. Jessica Charlesnak egyáltalán nem kellett volna Londonban lennie, amikor megtörtént az elképzelhetetlen. Otthon kellett volna már lennie Edinburgh-ban, talán épp a fiújával, vagy a testvérével iszogathatott volna, vagy a barátaival kellett volna jógáznia. A normális, kiszámítható életét kellett volna élnie, ahogy mindig. De azon a végzetes augusztusi napon, amikor egy mentálisan beteg exkatona tüzet nyitott egy nyilvános helyen, Jessica élete örökre megváltozott.

Leszámítva, hogy Keir minden, csak nem tökéletes. Menekül a múltja és a bűnös lelkiismerete elől, amivel, úgy tűnik, nem tud elszámolni. De minél több időt tölt Jessicával, annál inkább beleszeret a lányba. És annál inkább félő, hogy a titka elszakítja őket egymástól. A férfi talán egy idegen volt Jessica számára. De Jessica sosem volt idegen Keir számára. Ha tetszett a történet keresd a McGregor testvérek további részeit.

But there’s a first time for everything. They say bad things happen in threes.

So when my two sisters invited me to ring in the new year in Ireland, I decided to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. I was going to let “saying yes” be my new resolution. Little did I know I’d spend New Year’s Eve having a hot and dirty one-night stand with Padraig McCarthy, one hell of a sexy Irishman. I also didn’t know that the brooding and intense sex god was one of Ireland’s top rugby players. A rugby player with a proposition for me: Come with him to his tiny hometown of Shambles and pretend to be his fiancé for a few days, just so that his ailing father can have some peace of mind. It sounded simple enough. It was anything but. Not when a town gets up in your business, not when the media hunts you down, not when your past comes back in the picture, not when there are real hearts and feelings at stake. Not when there are secrets that could break you. They say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures. This is my life in Shambles.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden. Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step. I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought. She might just lose her heart. Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble…
Karina Halle - Maverick
Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man - Canada's never felt so hot! Forget playing it safe. John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk. When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze. That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations. With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex. But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.
Karina Halle - Dirty Promises
Dirty Promises is the final book in The Dirty Angels Trilogy. While the first two books can be read as standalones, Dirty Promises can not. Reading Dirty Angels and Dirty Deeds beforehand is HIGHLY recommended. Also, people sensitive to violence and immoral characters who make questionable decisions should refrain from reading this book. The real cartel life is not pretty, not easy and certainly NOT romantic and that is more than reflected in Dirty Promises. Blood. Sex. Revenge. It ain't easy being king. Drug lord Javier Bernal has sliced and diced his way to the top of the Mexican drug trade, presiding over the country's largest cartel. But his rise to power comes at a brutal price: the death of his sister, Alana. Devastated and wracked with guilt, he turns away from his new wife, Luisa, forcing their marriage into a steady decline. But it isn't until she's pushed into the waiting arms of Esteban Mendoza, his right-hand man, that Javier realizes everything he's lost. And it isn't until he learns the truth about Alana, that he realizes everything there is to gain. Blood will spill. Cities will burn. Heads will roll. Because Javier will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. And what he wants is raw, ruthless revenge. The most dangerous man is the one with nothing left to lose.

But like the last tour, nothing is as easy as it seems. Sage is a broken man on the path to self-destruction and Dawn isn’t sure if she’s the right person to save him. And aside from having to pick up the pieces of their burgeoning relationship, they have to negotiate the mysterious new photographer assigned to Dawn’s story, as well as vindictive promoters and demonic groupies they thought they’d never see again.

It may be with their souls.
