    IN TOO DEEP IS OUT TO QUICK

    This is for the reader who may be engaged or married, and one who likes romance, and suspense. Brenda Jackson is very talented and her novels are all good to me, but as soon as you get into the story and things are heated its over. None of her books are over 170 pages. This particular book was 164 pages and it was 2 short stories, BUT they were awesome novellas. The first story was hot and sweet but predictable after the middle.The second story was better and very different. It depicted a prince and princess who had an unknown arranged marriage though they really lusted and loved each other. The ending was unpredictable to a great sweet ending.Im looking forwad to reading another BJ Novel.

    The Sheikh's Bargained Bride, By Olivia Gates

    Can a relationship be as hot as Vesuvius' eruption, and as cold as an arctic tundra at the same time? If it's a product of Olivia Gates' vivid imagination and skilled pen, then yes, of course it can. THE SHEIKH'S BARGAINED BRIDE is the novella to prove it.

    Sabrina and Adham's romance starts off with a blast as Olivia Gates weaves in the back story of how they met, fell in love, and were married concurrently with the illness, rapid decline, and eventual death of Sabrina's once wealthy and powerful father. His misguided attempt to protect his holdings and to secure a future for his daughter, become the basis for the title as well as the conflict in this romance.

    The chemistry between Sabrina and Adham smolders from their first scene together to the last. In true Gates fashion, the author didn't miss a single opportunity to engage all our senses in the burning desires of the hero and heroine.

    The hero is an uber-masculine, polo-playing sheikh. The heroine is a beautiful, intelligent, and headstrong whose character develops into an independent woman, unwilling to lose herself to a man she believes doesn't love her, even if he is a prince.

    You'll be amazed at just how much passion is packed into this novella! It's enough to fill an entire book. There's an Olivia Gates-sized love scene that burns up the pages, but is so thoroughly integrated into the storyline that calling it a 'scene' doesn't do it justice. It's more like the culmination of all the brilliantly executed frustration and suppressed desire exploding into a confrontation, reconciliation, and finally a unification.

    This novella was so thoroughly engaging, I didn't use my bookmark once. And for someone with an unusually busy bladder, that's saying a lot!

    A scandal in the Hamptons

    Book 1 in A Summer Scandal miniseries it's described "spend the season in the Hamptons, where the wealthy play hard and their passions run hot!"

    Husband Material by author Brenda Jackson was a very sensual read about a second chance at happiness and love. A Hollywood Producer and Actress that were adored by the press and fans as they were to have shared a perfect marriage. However, Matthew Birmingham was a work alcoholic and he only wanted to provide the best for his wife; he wanted her to have everything. However Carmen his wife didn't care about that she only wanted her husband and when he didn't show up in Spain as promised and she lost her baby she was going to tell him about upon his arrival, that was it...she filed for divorce.

    Now a year later and part of her divorce settlement, she's staying at their Hampton estate and going to attend the polo matches and have a little R&R. What she doesn't count on is Matthew showing up and telling her he's determined to stay at the estate and they could share! Gossips, the press, everyone speculated about a reconciliation. However, they both were determined to seek revenge for each of them hurting each other and it was a very dangerous game, a very sensual game which literally sizzled off the pages.

    Husband material was a very enjoyable read, emotional because of the emotional loss they both felt, the misconceptions, the hurt and in the end, the happy ending. It, along with the Sheikh's Bargained Bride set the stage for this series and I'm looking forward to reading about the other characters introduced at the polo matches.

    The Sheikh's Bargained Bride by the fantastic author Olivia Gates was book with all sorts of surprises because one is immediately given the insight that he cherished and adored his wife, but that was only for the press. Let's just say I was shocked at the reason he married Sabrina Grant because it was obvious they had made love and that she adored her new husband. She was also confused why he stayed away from her until she found out her about the bargain he made with her father. A ridiculous one at that!

    Again, set in the Hamptons and around the polo matches of course this rich sheikh would be involved as he was a top notch player and bred Arabians. He adored his animals but he mistrusted his wife because he believed she knew about the agreement he had with her father. However, he wanted her!

    As a new bride Sabina Grant could not understand why her new husband had put a distance between them. They had been intimate when they were dating and she adored him and missed him fiercely. Why during the day in front of his friends and the press did he pay attention to her, touch her, act as if she was the most special woman in the world? Then nothing, no sharing a bedroom...nothing!

    Well it had to stop and then the most horrible thing happened she overheard a conversation one that explained that what he thought of her and why he married her and it broke her heart! However, in the end he lusted after her, he couldn't help himself and she saw "red" and left him. Well, I loved a dark man, a mysterious one and in the end this particular royal was brought to he knees, I promise. Again, Olivia Gates has written a sensual dance between two extremely charismatic characters in The Sheikh's Bargained Bride.
