Nadia isn’t at all happy with stopping over at the Blackhawk lodge. Her peeve vanishes when she steps up to the desk and encounters Tyrell’s brother, Devon. Who would have thought she would find the perfect man for her ad campaign out here in the sticks?

As they try to untangle attractions that grow in spite of their outward choices, a fifth entity asserts itself. Tyrell’s wolf, a totem carried by the Blackhawk gene, makes it clear that Nadia is Tyrell’s life partner. Tyrell wants none of it. He is ready to settle down, and Page is more his type of woman, but the need for Nadia is undeniable.

Review by Long and Short Reviews 4 1/2 stars

In Nothing to Lose Ms. Dee drops her reader straight into the center of a pending tragedy and keeps the pace going from start to finish. Even her tender moments carried an energy that gripped this reader.

It's well known that the quest for survival will sustain a person way beyond their normal capabilities and the author uses this to good effect on more than one occasion. The pace and style of writing switches from fast and furious through sweet, sensual to spicy with a fluency and visual impact that drew me in. I read this through in one sitting; the author pulled me in and had me rooting for both her main characters.

While every romance is about emotions, Ms. Dee’s presentation of Cooper’s emotions when Galynn keeps her promise to let him know when she's leaving is awesome. I appreciated the manner in which the author includes background information, thus breaking up the tension.

While the bad guy was thoroughly bad, Ms. Dee’s conclusion and resolution to the conflict was both unexpected and liberating.

I found Ms. Dee’s writing fluent and enjoyable and she is an author now on my ‘watch-for’ list.

Review by Coffee Time Romance 4 cups

This book was so good on many levels. I felt like Ms. Dee handled the domestic violence issue very well. It was never overdone and when Galynn finally told Cooper everything that she had endured, my heart breaking and my tears were real. I never felt like Galynn was a true victim, but a survivor in her own right. Cooper never judged her and was sweet and tender when they finally came together. The family dynamics between Cooper and his family only strengthened when Galynn left. The plot was timely and relevant. I highly recommend Nothing to Lose and I look forward to the other Blackhawk brothers stories.


One of the great reviews at Amazon

I love romance books and tend to lean more to the erotic romance novels because plain romance just doesn't make me feel the connection to the characters. While this one was not an erotic romance, the author did not leave me wanting.

Ms. Dee has written this book so well, that I felt all the love, lust, pain, and happiness that the need for my usual erotic novels wasn't there. This is a quick read, and I will definitely be adding this author to my "must read" list.

Make sure you have a box of tissues handy because I surely needed them, not only for the sad parts but for the happy ones as well. I look forward to reading more about he Blackhawk brothers. Great book!


Review by Nikki Bywater at Books4U

Galynn Taylor is scared and on the run. She is running away from her partner Mick who has become violent. Galynn had wondered if Mick had always been violent and controlling or if it was down to the steroids he had started to taking that had changed him from the caring man into the monster she now knew him to be.

Bruised and battered Galynn travels across the country, to escape. While she is walking to the next town she gets caught in a storm and tired and exhausted she collapses on the side of the road. Luckily she is found by a truck driver called Cooper Blackhawk. Cooper takes her for medical treatment to a clinic where his brother works as a doctor. Cooper then lets Galynn stay at his home and he takes care of her as she recovers from her injuries.

Galynn and Cooper become close. They are attracted to one another. Galynn knows that she should not trust Cooper or any other man again, but Cooper makes Galynn feel safe and romance blossoms and it’s not long before Cooper tells Galynn that he is in love with her.

Galynn becomes to feel unsettled and she is afraid that Mick might find her and not only hurt her but Cooper as well. So she decides to leave and go on the run again. She gets a job as a waitress in another town, but soon she starts to feel unwell with nauseous. Could she be carrying Cooper’s baby?

Just in time for a Valentine’s Day, this is a nice story of love and romance with some sizzling scenes. With a good strong storyline and likable characters that make this book the perfect Valentine read.

REVIEWS:
By Lynnie P at BookStrand

Heart warming story showing the fear that physical abuse can cause and how love can help heal the wounds. Galynn and Cooper's story is well written and has a lot of loveley moments and shows a lot of the fear Galynn suffers when thoughts or mention of Mick is made. A really good story. Recommend.

REVIEWS:
By Lou Graham at Lou Graham's blog

First time I have ever read two books in one. When I started them, I wondered if the story would start by one Author and finished off by another, However that is not the case. Within these covers you have two fabulous but very separate stories with just a couple of things in common, beautifully written, very engaging leads (most male and female) and the hope!

Whilst they are both set around the christmas period, they certainly do not need to be read around this time of year … with Valentines Day coming up, I couldn’t think of a better time for you to reach for these two (quite short) but packed full of page turning words. I read both stories in a single sitting each as they flowed so well and I really wanted to know what happens next. Lovely emotion in both and both so very believable.

These are a must read to get you in the mood for love (and give you hope!!)

REVIEWS:

5 BOOKS from Long and Short Romance Review: "While For Love or Money features a marriage-of-convenience premise that has been done countless times before, I enjoyed this author's take on the premise and the surprises and twists she threw in with the characters and their relationship with one another. For Love or Money is a extremely pleasurable story filled with characters you can't help but come to love."


5 HEARTS from Margo Arthur, The Romance Studio: "This story is extremely thought provoking, making anyone who reads this story stop and think about how you would have reacted if you were in Megan's shoes... For Love Or Money is an excellent name for this book, for both Alex and Megan will have to chose which road they will take. A great book with loving and passionate scenes written with good taste and a nice storyline for everyone to enjoy."
