A few years ago, I might have frowned upon romance novels—especially small town romance novels. But that was then—this is now and my bookshelves are FULL of small town romance novels! There is something about a romance novel that I just love. I love that I am guaranteed a happy ending and I can breeze through the book with a smile on my face. Romances are just so wonderful and I can’t believe it took me this long to really get into the genre!
I attribute this new found love of romance novels to discovering a few really outstanding authors, Barbara Dunlop being one of them. Dunlop has written a bunch of cowboy romances and they are so great! This latest small town romance series Paradise, Alaska is high high up on my TBR list. In fact I may or may not have already started the first book in this series just so I can read this one next!
I know the holidays are upon us and for the romance reader in your life, you are going to want to pick up this book series and wrap it up to gift away! I am so excited to share a bit about this book with you guys today so you can judge for yourself if this is the next series you want to read or gift to a reader in your life! I can say that Dunlop is a tried and proved romance writer and her niche genre in romance is cowboys but rural Alaska has a nice ring to it as well! This book is out now and be sure to pick up a copy (I already have!)
Passion heats up in Paradise, Alaska, for two people who couldn’t be more different in this sweet, sizzling romance from New York Times bestselling author Barbara Dunlop.
Accomplished Los Angeles lawyer Marnie Anton has always been sensible, but when her friend Mia Westberg asks for help with a ridiculous matchmaking project, she can’t say no. The idea of transporting city girls into the small town of Paradise, Alaska, is so crazy it just might…work? Against her best judgment, she tags along. Having grown up in a family of intimidating men, Marnie developed a preference for the urbane lawyers and clients in her life in LA. But when she meets a mountain of a buff Alaskan man with an intriguing snake tattoo, intimidated is definitely not the first thing she feels.
Conrad Cobra Stanford was skeptical of the matchmaking event from the start. Big-city women weren’t adventurous, they were judgmental. They’d take one look at him and scorn his lifestyle, just like his first love did. Cobra planned to give the women a wide berth, but one of them won’t be ignored. Marnie’s everything that’s wrong and everything that’s right for him all at the same time. Just when he thinks he’s got her pegged, she blindsides him with a startling past, falling into his arms and igniting his protective instincts and so much more….(summary from Goodreads)
