First Kisses

First Kisses (Inspy Kisses Collection, #1)First Kisses by Linda Goodnight
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First Kisses
Six Stories of first kisses, by six different authors, each one in its own right entertaining and delightful.

The Rambler's Bride Copyright © 2014 Linda Goodnight.
Full of action and suspense, keeps you guessing right to the end. I have read books by Ms. Goodnight before, and she never disappoints you. Great read.

Lovebirds at the Heartbreak Café Copyright © 2014 Janet Tronstad
Janet Tronstad is one of my favorite authors, so I try to read anything she writes, and I really enjoyed this one, if you have ever been alone in your life, you will really enjoy this one, filled with promises and love.

Her Mule Hollow Cowboy Copyright © 2014 Debra Clopton Parks
This author is new to me, but the book is really good, and kept me reading until the end. The details Ms. Parks used pulls you right into the story, great read, lots of action. I would like to read more by her.

Deadly Hunt Copyright © 2014 Margaret Daley
Another author that I like to read her books. This book grabbed me from the start, a woman alone in the desert, and a man banging on her door, bloody, and dirty, fainting at her feet, and it just kept getting better and better, lots of action. This author is always a must read.

Necessary Proof Copyright © 2014 Camy Tang
Good interesting and lively characters, fast paced plot and a great read. I have read books by Ms. Tang before and she is a great author.

Kissed by a Cowboy Copyright © 2014 Lacy Williams
This author is also new to me, but this book was so good I wanted to reach into the story and shake the two main characters and shout “wake up you two love each other”. Lol, great read, Lacy pulls you right into the story, loved it and also would like to read more by her.
