Steal Me is the story of Maggie Walker and Captain Anthony Moretti. Maggie, an aspiring YA romance author, is a waitress at a local diner frequented by the Moretti’s and, unfortunately, she has a habit of spilling coffee or food on Anthony. Could this be a sign of true love??
Casey Caldwell is a gregarious accounting student and a bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding – a best friend who is marrying the half brother of the famous rock star Jake McKallister, the groomsman assigned as Casey’s wedding partner. Jake is a sort of surly loner when he’s not on stage, pretty much the complete opposite of Casey – what could they possibly have in common?
Jake has spent the last 7 years on the road, away from his family, touring with his rock band ever since he composed and performed his first hit as a teenager. But Jake has another reason for being so famous – at age 13, he was kidnapped and tortured for 36 days
I like romantic suspense and I’ve certainly heard Lisa Renee Jones’ name before but I hadn’t listened to or read any of her books. Susannah Jones narrates the Rock Chick books and I think she’s wonderful with them, so I decided it was time to check out LRJ’s brand of RS. Perhaps Deep Under wasn’t the best book to start with, though. It is the fourth book in the Walker Security series and there was clearly something of an ongoing story arc happening, about which I knew nothing going in. I did eventually manage to catch on and I ended up enjoying the book overall but I will say the start was a bit rocky for me.

An Offer From a Gentleman – or The Bridgertons do Cinderella – is the third in Julia Quinn’s perennially popular series of books following the lives and loves of the eight alphabetically named Bridgerton siblings.
Benedict is the second eldest and has spent most of his life being referred to simply as “A Bridgerton” or “number two” and he’s fed up with it. Nobody – other than his family (and sometimes not even them!) – sees him as an individual, a man worthy of attention on his own account, until he meets a lovely masked woman in a silver gown at a masquerade, who sees him – Benedict – and his life changes instantly.

Easy Kisses is the latest release in the Boudreaux series by Kristen Proby. I bought the first books in the series and I confess I called a halt to the first one, Easy Love, because I couldn’t quite cope with the disconnect in accents. Rachel Fulginiti gives the Boudreaux siblings an authentic New Orleans accent but Sebastian York does not. When Eli (the hero of Easy Love) spoke, between the two narrators, he sounded like two completely different characters. I didn’t have that problem with Easy Kisses, something for which I was very grateful. Instead, both narrators gave the hero, Simon Danbury – a British national – the same accent.
