I love the Sinners men, their feisty women and their hot roads to a HEA. My favorite book in this series is Double Time, the story of Reagan, […]

Book review: Wide Open Spaces ~ Aurora Rose Reynolds

I have to be honest. The moment Aurora Rose Reynolds posted the first version of chapter 1 on Facebook Wide Open Spaces made me nervous.
