Get lucky with a bad boy. . . .

Whether he’s a rock star, a billionaire, or a playboy magician—whether he wears work boots or a suit and tie—bad boys have one thing in common: how good they can make a woman feel. This contemporary romance boxed set sizzles with SEVEN full-length novels by SEVEN bestselling authors, starring SEVEN unforgettable bad boys who will make you melt.

The Perfect Mix by Charity Pineiro, New York Times Bestselling Author. Contractor Rey Ramos has good looks, brains, money, and a heart of gold. But Rey also has a deep dark secret that could scare off his new client, Bianca Martinez, the woman who has captivated him. Rey isn’t eager to share the ugly reality of his past with Bianca and it would be totally foolish to fall in love with her, but Bianca is too tough to resist. . .

Heart Raider by Sophia Knightly, USA Today Bestselling Author. Hot passion explodes between gorgeous billionaire Nick Cameron and headstrong reporter, Veronique "Ronnie" Whitcomb, while stranded in a hurricane. She's seeking his exclusive story...a story that could get her killed. Nick will risk his life - and his heart - to keep her alive. Try as he might to deny his feelings for her, keeping Ronnie at arm's length becomes impossible.

Naughty Vegas Nights by Tawny Weber, USA Today Bestselling Author. Tired of her jinx-cursed love life, Natasha Stover figures the only way to fix it is to get naked and naughty with the guy who ruined her for all others. And Lady Luck is on her side…. A weekend in Sin City being a bad boy's favorite toy just might be the cure Natasha's been wishing for.

Warrior’s Bride by Nina Bruhns, International Bestselling Author. Bad boy lawyer Coleton Lonetree never expected to find the love of his life at an Indian powow. But when he takes the beautiful stranger into his arms, he is determined to make her his for all time, and stakes his claim in the most elemental way. The next morning, Rini Herelius finds herself hopelessly in love with her intriguing mystery-man—and pregnant with his child. More than anything she wants to keep him and her baby, but Fate has a way of spinning things out of control…turning heated lovers to passionate enemies.

Driven to Date by Susan Hatler, International Bestselling Author. When Jill Parnell’s promotion is handed to the boss’s nephew, she attends a colleague’s wedding and schmoozes a high-powered partner at another law firm. Her potential new boss has only one condition for her, that she demonstrate a personal life that supports a thriving career. Jill pretends she’s dating the best man, Ryan—then later discovers he’s the lawyer who stole her hard-earned management position. Sparks fly between them, but she reminds herself she’s only driven to date to get back on the partner track, not to tame the bad boy and make him her own.

Bedding The Wrong Brother by Virna DePaul, National Bestselling Author. After a bad breakup, Melina enlists her childhood friend Max to tutor her in the art of passion. But she’s in for a surprise when Max's twin brother Rhys steps up to the challenge…. Both sultry and sweet, this story is rated HHH ("Heat, Heart & HEA") and involves a bed mix-up, hot identical twins, sex lessons, naughty word games, light restraint, a shy sex bomb who's afraid she's boring and a playboy hero determined to prove she's got everything he'll ever need.

Crazy in Love by Kristin Miller, National Bestselling Author. Historical inn owner Rachael McCoy has one simple rule: Don’t date guests. Too bad rock star playboy Cole Turner has come into town and is determined to change her mind.

    Book 1 starts off on the sweet and sexy end, at least in my opin

    Book 1 starts off on the sweet and sexy end, at least in my opinion. Bianca is a sassy little chica who has just found a way to live her dream by partnering up with two friends she graduated cooking school with. I don't know what it is, but whenever chefs are involved it just makes the book that much more appealing. Something about food and hot sex does it for me. Bianca's love interest is a haunted bad boy with a heart of gold. He is hired as a contractor to modernize and beautify the old restaurant our three partners had purchased together. Rey is very successful, and actually almost turns down the offer, until he meets Bianca. Let's just say sparks fly...but can Bianca look beyond his tainted past?




    Book 2 was quite intriguing!! We have Ronnie who had a HUGE crush on her camp counselor that followed her into her adult life. When Nick's seemingly fairytale success climb comes to a scandalous pause due to a nasty divorce, Ronnie takes it upon herself to scoop out the truth and save him. What she doesn't count on is the fact the reality is so much more than any fantasy she has cooked up. They are plunged into a life and death situation, with the clock ticking on their romance as well as their lives. Can Ronnie mend Nick's broken heart and restore his faith?




    Book 3 was completely sexy and laugh out loud funny. Meet Natasha. Growing up with lots of money and her future all planned out, she has toed the line and become everything her parents wanted her to be...and very happy doing it. Her Aunt Sharon, the rebel in the family becomes ill and enlists Natasha's help to save her upscale boutique that designs, you guessed it, sexy under garments. Off to sin city she goes to a conference to help sell the designs that will land her aunt a comfortable living. What she doesn't count on is a blast from her past being up there, and being competition. He was the one guy the unimaginably ROCKED her entire existence. Can she really just settle for a four day fling? And will he allow her?




    Book 4 was for out girls that are hot for the Braves. Rini is celebrating her freedom and toasting to her future when she literally smacks right into an Indian brave dressed in war paint. For a moment she feels like she has fallen through a time warp until the giggles bring her back to the present. However the Warrior holding on to her an keep her in the past anytime. This story is about to people who have some serious issues overcoming all, with a lot of work, and healing the scars of their pasts. Both people have been really hurt and the outcome to their dynamics is heart-wrenching.




    Book 5 is all about our anal, goal-oriented work-o-holic, but absolutely lovable Jill. Jill is ALL work and drive with no play time. A huge success at her firm, she prepares herself to take the next leap into management, only to be shut down by one of the partners relatives. Shocked and disheartened, she has to re-make herself and re-plan out her goals. Along the way, she discovers she has a charitable side, reclaims a life outside of work, gets over relationship issues and falls in love with the one person she was determined to hate. It turns out that sometimes the best laid plans aren't always whats best for you. The path to this happily ever after is absolutely endearing.




    Book 6 was an interesting twist on magicians and twins :) Yes this book had the ability to be completely naughty, since it was about twin smoking hot men who traveled the circuit entertaining all types of audiences. Melina is the girl next door who grew up with the brothers, but feel in love with Rhys. As they grew older something came between Rhys and Melina and they grew apart, while Max and Melina became best friends. After another disastrous breakup, Melina is convinced she needs help in the bedroom area. Trusting her long-time friend to help her, she runs to Max for help. But Max has other plans up his sleeve, like finally getting the love that has been lurking between his brother and best friend finally out in the open. He lays the game for some REAL magic to be payed and let me tell you....do the sparks ever fly!!!! Definitely more on the naughty side with this tale..lol.




    Book 7 is our ultimate bad boy: The Rock Star. Cole is used to getting what he wants whenever he wants it. After escaping to a small town to recover after a huge disaster on his tour, Cole winds up renting out an entire Inn that comes stoked with one incredibly HOT innkeeper. Thinking of all the naughty things he could do to her, he is shocked when she turns him down flat and walks away. The nerve! But Cole is in the for the ride of his life as this small town beauty shakes him to the very core and leaves his heart bare and open. The was an incredible story of healing and forging ones own path.




    These books were all phenomenal and so enjoyed the different aspects they all brought to the table. There is a bad boy out there for all of us and will assure you that one (if not more) will capture your heart. Excellent job ladies!!!

    This boxed set covers all the bases with 7 bad boy heroes and 7 feisty heroines written by 7 great authors. I enjoyed all the stories but my favorite is The Perfect Mix by Charity Pineiro. In this story, Bianca Martinez is drawn to Rey Ramos. He is a sexy, honest and compassionate man. He cares for his family and willing helps those around him. What's not to love? They become lovers and Bianca dreams of a future with the handsome contractor, but he has a secret. Will it keep them apart? The story is filled with delightful supporting characters. They make you feel as if you're part of the family. However, Bianca and Rey steal the story. Their love and caring pulls you in and makes you want them to be together forever. Charity/Caridad writes an entertaining and romantic story that left me feeling good. Lucky 7 Bad Boys is perfect way to relax and rewind.

    This box set was simply fantastic, loaded with love, romance, humor, misunderstandings, hope and happily ever afters. Starting with "The Perfect Mix" the story of a man that despite being an ex-con, owns a construction company, who is hired to renovate a restaurant for a chef and her friend. The story of Rey and Bianca, who had fireworks between them in more ways than one, was a great way to start out this box set. The next story was "Heart Raider". It was easy to follow Veronique and Nick's story. Veronique is independent and not afraid of a challenge. I love the fact that she never gave up on Nick, and never thought bad things about him. Nick just wants to be left alone, but Ronnie won't allow that, she wants him to simply live his life to the fullest, and stop hiding away. She makes him laugh and smile again, and that it just what Nick needs. A great love story, with romance, suspense and humor. Loved it!! Next up was "Naughty Vegas Nights", the story of Drew and Natasha, who had dated seven years ago. Maybe a night in Sin City, is all they need to reconnect. "Warriors Bride" is next, and I really loved the story of Colton Lonetree and Rini, who meet at an Indian powwow, and fall for each other immediately, but when she finds herself pregnant, she knows what she wants to do, but will Colton go along with it? "Driven to Date" features Jill and Ryan, both lawyers. He comes to town and gets the promotion that she has worked so hard for. Jill has to learn to balance her work and personal life, but will she even be able to work with this man, let alone be friends with him. In "Bedding the Wrong Brother", Melina wants lessons on how to please a man, and she goes to her longtime friend, Max for help. Little does she know that he tricks his twin brother Rhys, into the job, the twin that she has loved all these years. These two are magicians, not something I was expecting, but a lot of fun. And last but not least is "Crazy In Love", the story of Rachael, owner of a historical inn and Cole, a rock star and entertainer. After botching his last performance, can he find the peace he needs, to turn his next performance into a hit? And how does this sexy innkeeper, help him to do that. Kudos to all seven of these authors, every book in the set was a hit!!

I enjoyed reading about their passion as well as their hopes and dreams. The chemistry between Natasha and Drew is very believable and leaves you rooting for them. Buy this book!

    Heart Raider ( Heartthrob series book 1 )

    Veronique Whitcomb has been in love with Nick Cameron forever. So when his world is turned upside down by his ex wife and ex best friend, Ronnie didn't like the fact that his ex got off easy so she started to investigate her. When she shows up on Nicks doorstep trying to get an interview with him she finds out it's not going to be easy. She also discovers that she is still in love with him.

    Nick doesn't want Ronnie anywhere around. He just wants to be left alone. But when she shows up right before a hurricane he has no choice but to let her stay. He soon learns that she's not as easy to turn away as he thought she would be and finds himself falling for her against his better judgment.

    Ronnie is not expecting the threat that comes by the name of Daisy. That is one devious conniving heartless girl.

    What will Nick do when he finds out about Ronnie's investigation and the fact that she is in danger because of it? And what will he do when he thinks that Ronnie may have betrayed him?

    My Opinion: This is the first book that I have read from this author and I thought that it was great. I found it very hard to put down. I loved Ronnie's love of life and how she would not give up on Nick no matter how hard he tried to push her away. I definitely recommend reading and I will be looking forward to reading more by this author!

Drew's sister comes off as a real witch but you really have to look deeper with that one. The book reunites lovers, deals with family issues, Has scheming women and unexpected friendships. You really can't go wrong. I was hooked right from the start and found the book hard to put down. I definitely recommend reading!

    Warrior's Bride by Nina Bruhns

    Rini just got out of a bad relationship and ends up having a one night stand with and Indian who calls her Fire Eyes. She would have stuck around to see if they could have had something more if it had not looked like he was a player and after being cheated on by her ex she couldn't do that. Next thing she knows she is pregnant and has no way to find them because they never exchanged names. She is being pressured to let her sister and her husband adopt the baby but even though she knows it will be hard on her own she just can't give her baby up. Then out of nowhere the father of the baby shows up and seems determined to try and take the baby from her.

    Cole cannot get the woman that he calls Fire Eyes out of his mind. But she left him just like everyone else and he cannot seem to get over that. When he happens to see her at an Indian Adoption lawyers office and see's that she is pregnant he knows that the baby is his and he will not allow her to give his baby up for adoption.

    My opinion: I found this to be a very emotional book. I ended up in tears at a few points in this book. I really felt for Rini. I would have given this book four hearts instead of 3.5 but I could not get over what a jerk Cole was. Rini honestly tried everything to show him that she loved him and did not want to leave him, but he is the type that does not want to let anyone in no matter what so that he doesn't get hurt again and he basically in my eyes treated her really crappy. With the exception of me not really liking Cole, I thought that it was a well written book with a great story line. I just wish would have been a little more understanding of Rini and her reasons and been focused on making their relationship work and not just on sex. I loved the fact that I was brought to tears while reading this book. A book that can get such a strong emotional reaction from me is definitely one worth reading. I definitely suggest reading.

    This set includes 7 wonderful authors offering up our favorite,

    This set includes 7 wonderful authors offering up our favorite, 7 sexy and exciting bad boys!!

    1) DRIVEN TO DATE by SUSAN HATLER:

    Susan Hatler gives us another great story about a love that just can't be denied. Jill and Ryan have a rocky road to finding love but it's a wonderful journey and worth it in the end.

    DRIVEN TO DATE is the story of Jill Parnell, an independent, focused, career-driven attorney with no quality time for a personal life. She has worked diligently for the last five years on what she believed was a partner track at her law firm. When the promotion she expected to get was given instead to an outsider her world imploded.

    Just days later Jill meets Ryan at the wedding of her friends, Ethan and Kristen, where he is the Best Man. They both feel an immediate attraction between them, but Jill sees Ryan's flirtatious lines as warning of a practiced player and heartbreaker. She doesn't have time in her life for a boyfriend and certainly not for a broken heart so she blows him off. But then a need to prove to someone important she has a balanced life has her grabbing Ryan to be her ten minute boyfriend. He goes along, charms her, dances with her, and passionately kisses her right out on the dance floor which gets the rumors of Jill's hot new romance flying.

    Ryan Shaw is the very handsome and successful nephew of one of the partners of Jill's firm. He went to college and law school with Jill's friend Ethan. He is also known as the turkey who (unknowingly) stole Jill's job as a managing attorney at her firm. Everyone at the firm knows Jill deserved that promotion, but can't help liking Ryan. Especially when it's apparent he's qualified for the job.

    When Jill returns to work Monday only to discover the sexy guy she kissed is none other than the rat who took her job, and her new boss, the sparks fly between them again. Jill might be furious, but Ryan is smitten and not ready to give up on his chance with Jill. He wants to change his boyfriend status to permanent and is not afraid to enlist help from her friends and coworkers.

    I enjoy Ms. Hatler's fun, realistic, and clean writing style, and reading Driven to Date did not disappoint. Jill and Ryan's story was at times humorous and charming, yet at other times frustrating, but at all times a pleasure to read. Their story includes many beloved characters from the previous books in the Better Date Than Never series, which to me is always a bonus. It also introduced new characters I hope to learn more about in future books.

    2) BEDDING THE WRONG BROTHER by VIRNA DePaul:

    Virna's story was sweet and romantic, but also so much fun! I just loved how Melina went after what she wanted, and for that matter Rhys too! Friends to lovers stories are among my favorites and this one had my full attention right from the first.

    Melina Parker grew up as close friends and neighbors of the gorgeous and sexy Dalton twins, but there was a huge difference in how she felt about them. Max became her best friend and confidant, whereas Rhys, he was her secret crush. Rhys and Max are the sons of magicians and moved away to become a part of that life, but have kept in touch with Melina when possible. More so Max than Rhys, and when she hits a rough spot in her love life it's Max she turns too. But Max knows Melina's secret and believes Rhys feels the same way, so he plays matchmaker. He does a twin switcheroo on Melina and doesn't tell Rhys the true circumstances, letting him believe it was him Melina wanted &quot;lessons&quot; from all along. Rhys was happy to oblige, because Max was right, Rhys has always wanted Melina too.

    I liked this story a lot. The characters and storyline were all well-done and kept my interest from start to finish.

    3) THE PERFECT MIX by CHARITY PINEIRO:

    This book was hot &amp; spicy! Bianca Martinez is a chef about to open her own restaurant but it is handsome and sexy contractor Rey Ramos who has her mouth watering (and mine)! THE PERFECT MIX by Charity Pineiro was about the all-encompassing feeling of meeting The One meant just for you. The rush of the overwhelming attraction, the never felt before emotions, and the desire that follows you into your dreams at night. Bianca and Rey's love story is strengthened by the loyalty and support of good friends and family. It's also filled with such lavish descriptions of Bianca's recipes it had my stomach growling, lol. This was a great story, but I don't recommend reading it in an empty stomach. :)

    4) HEART RAIDER by SOPHIA KNIGHTLY:

    HEART RAIDER by Sophia Knightly was an intriguing tale with several layers of deception, seduction, and plotting by devious females all out for a piece of Nick Cameron, the reclusive billionaire. Lucky for him, Veronique (Ronnie), the intrepid reporter was determined to save him. I really liked Veronique's sassy, unfiltered personality. It kept the story going just waiting to see what she'd say next. And who could blame her for her lifelong crush on the sexy Nick. I love romances where the girl gets the guy she's dreamed about being with all her life. Poor Nick did his best to keep his heart from falling, but Veronique proved irresistible and just what his damaged heart needed to live again. Something he realizes almost too late. The chemistry between Nick and Ronnie made the love scenes more explosive, especially the first time on the beach. This story was enjoyable and a good start to a new series.

    5) NAUGHTY VEGAS NIGHTS by TAWNY WEBER:

    Like most things Vegas, this book was an adventure with a little bit of everything. Hot bad boy, sleezy bad guy, smart independent women just coming into their own, wild child little sister, the One that got away, betrayal, mystery, sexy lingerie, steamy sex, reunited families, and in the end dreams were coming true. All written with the light, humorous, engaging style of Tawny Weber. I really liked the plot, the pacing, the characters, and the second chance love story in NAUGHTY VEGAS NIGHTS. This was a wonderful addition to the Lucky 7 Bad Boys Contemporary Romance Boxed Set.

    6) WARRIOR'S BRIDE by NINA BRUHNS:

    WARRIOR'S BRIDE was a fantastic read! I don't know how to put my thoughts into words deserving of Nina Bruhns' impressive story. She starts off with her heroine, Rini, literally bumping into the hero, the very sexy Colton, all dressed up in his regalia at a pow wow. It is love at first sight as these two connect in the deepest of ways and later has Colton staking his claim on her believing he has finally found the woman of his dreams. The next day Rini sees something that is not what it seems and runs off without explanation. Both are heartbroken, angry and feeling betrayed over this misunderstanding and with no way of finding each other.

    Later Rini discovers she is carrying Colt's child and is determined to keep her baby, but allows her sister to convince her to at least talk to an adoption lawyer about her options. While there Colton sees her, realizes her condition, and guesses her intentions. Yet another misunderstanding. Furious she would give away his child he confronts her, threatens taking the baby from her, and eventually offers her a marriage of convenience which she agrees to.

    Right from the start I loved both Colton and Rini. Their attraction was intense and so sensual. Their first night together was smoldering hot and it was clear they were meant for each other. The misunderstanding the next day had me groaning over the loss. When they finally meet again in the lawyer's office it was just as frustrating. Despite the fact they both obviously still had strong feelings for one another pride, stubbornness, tempers, and insecurities get in the way. Both Colt and Rini already had trust issues which made their situation more complicated even though the true love they felt for each other was clear to everyone around them. Bruhns does a wonderful job of allowing the reader to see both sides' perspectives, gives us great second

    Good read

    I think the 'bad boys' title is misleading, but the stories are very enjoyable. If you are looking for romance, you won't be disappointed.
    Some stories were over the top talking about food, not being a 'foodie' I would have been perfectly happy without the indepth descriptions.
    The leading males in each story were thoroughly fun to read about.
