Rescued By Love Book By Melissa Foster

The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women's fiction.

As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself--and to him--that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls, concerned because she's been unable to reach her best friend, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind--will Addison be his first failed rescue?

I rated this book 4 ****'s

A feisty Addison that won't say yes to being helped

Addison is one of my fave characters from the Ryder's men. She is very feisty and won't say yes to being helped. She is very stubborn in a good way. I can relate to that character. I loved that she has her own mind and wants to explore the world by herself. She is very fearful and adventurous.

Jake on the other hand is not afraid to lend his hand to rescue Addison. This hunk is very resourceful and has a heart of gold. He can swoon you like crazy, just be aware when you read this book.

This story is like cats and dogs chasing each other. Addison and Jake's attraction is undeniable but as always Addison is hard-headed and won't reveal her true feelings for Jake though it is obvious.

Love is fearful and willing to risk. This book is very sweet but very hot as well.

Surrender Series Book by Mariel Grey

Surrender of Trust (Book 1)
Lucy Goodwin knows more about horse breeding than a proper young lady should. Her brother’s thoroughbred business has given her purpose and independence, but when an accident leaves her solely in charge, despair and destruction threaten her every move. Trapped in an impossible position, Lucy must do the right thing and watch their dreams crumble, or save their livelihood at a cost too great to bear.

Lord Philip Lyton, Marquess of Chalifour is a member of the prestigious Jockey Club, dedicated to eliminating cheating in horse racing. Trouble raises its ugly head when his business partner falls foul of an accident and he’s suddenly forced to deal with the man’s sister, who seems alarmingly out of her depth. Chalifour respects Lucy’s steely resolve, but knows that single-mindedness can be the most dangerous trait of all.

She might be beautiful and beguiling, but Lucy Goodwin is keeping secrets and Chalifour is determined to find out what they are.
Can be read as a stand-alone read.

A Gentleman's Surrender (Book 2)
Call her a romantic--or a fool, Lady Monique Cathdon is determined to marry for love. After watching her parents tolerate an arranged betrothal, life seems too short to be wasted on keeping up appearances.

After all, what's the point of having a heart if one refuses to follow it?

With a smile the devil himself might be proud of, James Stanton is not what her mother would call a matrimonial prospect. Still, there's something about the young man that sends Lady Monique's heart thumping around her chest, and silences her voice of reason.

Unfortunately for Lady Monique, the stakes are high, and young ladies of the ton make for very poor gamblers. Especially when James Stanton is on the hunt for revenge, and won't let an innocent woman--or his own passionate desires--get in the way of righting past wrongs.

Can be read as a stand-alone read.

About the author
From the moment she could put pen to paper, Mariel Grey knew she wanted to be a writer. Like all good adventures however, it didn’t happen overnight; it was after several decades of working in litigation that the desire to create dramatic worlds and characters became too great to ignore. Her first foray into historical romance, Surrender of Trust, explored the grime and glamour of regency horse racing, following the determined but impoverished Lucy Goodwin and upright Lord Chalifour. Her second novel, A Gentleman’s Surrender, introduced the innocent Lady Monique and tortured Mr. Stanton, both struggling to find love in a world filled with deceit.

Though entirely at home in the ballrooms and street alleys of London past, Mariel Grey is currently working on a contemporary story set in Florida, a landscape dear to the author’s heart. When she isn’t conjuring words on her computer screen, Grey can be found on the water fishing, snorkeling, and enjoying the incredible natural beauty of her home.

Mariel has a wonderful husband (the hero of her own romantic story) as well as two mischievous rescue kittens (who are quite happy to play the role of villains). In addition to being a dutiful wife and animal wrangler, Mariel is a member of the Romance Writers of America and affiliated chapter of the Ancient City Romance Authors.

New York State Law increased the hourly rate for workers

I cannot believe that I am working in a nursing home as a housekeeper for almost a year. Time flies so quick when you are having fun, right? 
When I first applied for the part-time job as a housekeeper, my hourly rate is $9.18. Since the first day of the year 2017, New York State Law increased the hourly rate to $9.70. I know that 52 cents is not big enough for others but it is big for me. I am so happy and very excited about the New Year 2017 work wise.

I am very excited too as I am planning to go for a vacation to the Philippines this Christmas. I already asked permission from my supervisor and she granted my request. She is very excited for me and wish that the other Filipina can go with me on our Christmas vacation. She only has one condition that both of us will come back to work. She loves her Filipina girls for sure. I am so blessed to have her as my supervisor. Also working with other Filipina is amazing.
