Flirting with Disaster by Victoria Dahl
Publisher: Harlequin HQN (January 27, 2015)
Series: Jackson: Girls' Night Out, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

There's no hiding from sizzling chemistry… 

Artist Isabelle West has good reasons for preferring a solitary life. Tucked away in a cabin in the woods, she has everything she needs . . . except a red-hot love life. That is, until a hard-bodied U.S. marshal threatens to unearth secrets she's spent years protecting. But giving in to the sparks flying between them can only lead to one thing…disaster. 

Tom Duncan lives by the letter of the law. But no one has tempted him—or confused him—more than free-spirited Isabelle, who arouses his suspicion and his desire. As their connection grows, and their nights get hotter, they find their wild attraction might shake everything he stands for—and expose everything she has to hide.

Well, first of all I love Dahl's books, including the first book in this new series (see review above). 

Second, the pose is sexy without being overdone. I like it! :)

Kame's Pick

Chieftain By Command by Frances Housden
Publisher: Escape Publishing - Harlequin Enterprises, Australia Pty Ltd (September 1, 2014)
Series: Chieftain Series, 2
Genre: Historical Romance

From the bestselling, RITA-nominated author Frances Housden comes the gripping, sensual, suspenseful follow-up to The Chieftain’s Curse...

Gavyn Farquhar’s marriage is forged with a double-edged blade. Along with the Comlyn clan’s lands, a reward from the King, he is blessed with an unwilling bride, Kathryn Comlyn, and an ancient fort with few defences that desperately needs to be fortified before it can act as a sufficient buffer between Scotland and the Norsemen on its northern borders.

Gavyn needs wealth to meet his king’s demands, and he knows of only one way to get it — with his sword. Leaving his prickly bride behind in the hands of trusted advisors, he makes his way to the battlegrounds of France and the money that can be made there.

Two years married and Kathryn is still a virgin. A resentful virgin, certain that, like her father before her, she is perfectly capable of leading the Comlyn clan. In her usurper husband’s absence, she meets the clan’s needs, advising and ruling as well as any man.

But she is an intelligent woman, and she knows the only respect and power she will ever hold will be through her husband. And to wield it, she needs to make him love her. An easy task to set, but impossible to complete, when said husband has been gone for two years, and there is no word of his return. But Kathryn is undeterred. After all, a faint heart never won a Chieftain.

Nice choices. I don't mind seeing the grease monkey again ;D he's pretty hot. Forget the kilt those abs are to die for LOL. Disasters are always fun to lust for. I went with a vampire pirate.

The_Book_Queen said...

;) It's true, the abs on him are drool worthy as well! And a vampire pirate? Oh, I must go check that out!

Lover Of Romance said...

Sophia Rose said...

I get to read Chieftain in Command for review extra yummy with that cover.

The_Book_Queen said...

Exactly! :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Oooh, can't wait to hear what you think of it then! ;)

Red Iza said...

Frankly, I think you can never go wrong with a Jaci Burton cover :) Flirting with disaster's very sexy and the Highlander makes me think of Outlander I've been watching this afternoon !

The_Book_Queen said...

How are you enjoying Outlander so far? :)

Red Iza said...

It went as a slow pace and had a kind of oniric feeling to it that went just right along with the story :) And watching it, I remembered I'd read the book !

The_Book_Queen said...

:) I'm very excited; it set up a lot of the backstory and setting, much like the first part of the book did, but I am hoping that it will pick up in the next episode or so! Even so, it was really good. :D
