“Harper’s writing is fresh and inviting, creating easy enjoyment for readers” ~ Under the Covers

 As a long time fan of Elizabeth Hoyt’s Historical Romances, it thrilled me to learn that she would be revisiting her previous work as Julia Harper and rereleasing her older contemporaries.

Maisa met her unforgettable one night stand again in the form of a sexy cop Sam West. That night with him is one she’d likely wish to forget because as much as she enjoyed it at the time, the last thing she needs is a relationship. Sam and Maisa’s banter infuses charm into this book. However, Maisa starts out prickly in the beginning. Somehow, Sam is able to thaw her out.

In addition to the romance, secondary characters are introduced and are played up, becoming sources of support and inspiration to the main characters of the story. While I enjoyed this, it can detract attention from the hero and heroine at times.

Harper’s writing is fresh and inviting, creating easy enjoyment for readers. As my first book by this author, I will no doubt be looking forward to explore more of her work.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
