Victoria Dahl delivers small town romance with plenty of heat!

I’ve been thinking about Tumble Creek this week, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to revisit it now while we are still enjoying a bit of summertime.  Because, what’s better than a sexy small town romance in the summer?  I discovered Victoria Dahl many years ago when I read the Tumble Creek series and I admit I gobbled these up like a fiend.  There are still scenes from book two and three that I remember to this day.  

Since I first read this trilogy I’ve gotten a few friends hooked on Victoria Dahl and now your turn! This series is packed full of book boyfriends for you to jealously hoard.  If you are short on time – like we all seem to be – these are perfect. Rather than investing in yet another long series their are only three full length books. All the better to slot into your busy lifestyle!

Talk Me Down

by Victoria Dahl

our thoughts…

“So she was horny? It wasn’t a crime even if she was thinking about molesting a policeman.”

The first in this series is refreshingly light hearted and fun while still being sexy.  I can’t say Molly was my favorite heroine in this series but Ben was HOT and they’ve set up this amazing series perfectly. This is the good boy cop of the bunch.

publisher’s blurb…

Molly Jennings has one naughty little secret: her job as a bestselling erotic fiction author. Until her inspiration runs dry—thanks to a creepy ex—and it’s time to skip town and move back to tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado.

One look at former high school hunk chief of police Ben Lawson and Molly is back in business. The town gossip is buzzing at her door and, worse still, a stalker seems to be watching her every move. Thankfully, her very own lawman has taken to coming over, often. The only problem now is that Molly may have to let the cat out of the bag about her chosen profession, and straitlaced Ben will definitely not approve.…

Start Me Up

by victoria Dahl

our thoughts…

“Yeah, I’m kind of proud of myself, too. I was a fucking sex ninja.”

Funny, drama, intrigue, and a lot of hot sex, including a very spicy but unexpected scene in the back alley behind a restaurant. You can also expect a lot of wit and sass in this book! Plus, the hero and heroine defy gender norms. Lori, the heroine is a mechanic and Quinn, the hero, is a beta hero and deliciously nerdy. He’s also the one man who can fulfil all Lori’s sexual fantasies.

publisher’s blurb

Lori had always planned to get out of tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado, but when her late dad left her his beloved auto body shop, she’d stayed. Now, according to her crazy best friend, Molly, what Lori needs is some excitement, in the form of hot, no-strings-attached sex…and lots of it.

Quinn Jennings has buildings on the brain—not love and romance. A serious architect, he’s delighted to discover that Lori is willing to skip dating protocols and head straight for the sheets. And aided by the steamy books on Lori’s bedside table, he’s busy indulging both of their wildest fantasies. But when life in Tumble Creek takes a dangerous turn for Lori, Quinn’s protective instincts kick in.

Suddenly he cares. More than either of them ever expected…

Lead Me On

by Victoria Dahl

our thoughts…

“Jane Morgan had ruined him. Ridden him hard and put him up wet. He might never recover.
Mentally he was even worse off. Who was this girl?”

Lead Me On is my favorite book in this series!  Don’t let this new cover fool you, Chase is the tall, tattooed and with all the markings of a bad boy exterior but with a heart of gold.  And he’s also everything no-longer-bad-girl Jane thinks she doesn’t need in her life.  But that doesn’t stop her from wanting him. This book is packed full of sexy with a book-boyfriend-material hero.

publisher’s synopsis

Raw, animal magnetism…

…is a big red flag to prim and proper office manager Jane Morgan. After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!

She gives herself one explosive, fantasy-filled night with Chase.

The next day it’s back to plain Jane and safe men.

But when her beloved brother becomes a murder suspect, it’s Chase who comes to her rescue. And Jane discovers that a man who’s been around the block knows a thing or two about uncovering the truth….

Suddenly the two are back under the same roof and bickering like old times, except that Brian has bigger problems than dealing with Lizzie’s verbal sparring. Someone Brian is desperate to avoid shows up and somehow Lizzie gets roped into pretending to be dating him. And, suddenly, the simmering anger has blossomed into something extra spicy…
