Holiday Bliss Book Tour/Review and Giveaway!

Holiday Bliss is book 2 in the Bliss series-- It comprises three romantic novellas by three different authors--set in different era's, in one home on the water called, Bliss.

Tending Her Heart by Kathleen Shoop 
Julie Peters' plans to modernize Waterside Hospital's labor and delivery protocols are thwarted by old school doctors and brown-nosing colleagues. But a handsome doctor who understands her point-of-view has a fine bedside manner and a way of Tending Her Heart that has forever-after attached to it. Can a Thanksgiving stay in the regal home called Bliss give her the space she needs to right her future and fall in love?

***My Personal Review of Tending Her Heart***

Kathleen Shoop has not let her readers down with this short story - full of action and passion and once again in a hospital setting.   Will Julie succeed in her quest and find love too with the mysterious Michael Young?  I love the way the story is told from both Michael and Julie's perspectives - so we get to see what they each are feeling and how they find their way to each other.  So many obstacles to overcome like Trish and Jason to find each other - it's a great read all the way to the end!  Just when you think you know exactly what is happening BAM! something happens to completely throw you off keel again and wondering what will happen next :)

The Christmas Miracle by Marcy Waldenville 
Brenan Brown has a terrible secret. One his beautiful wife doesn't know about. One that could destroy his happiness and his family. One he'd thought he buried along with his former identity in a grave in Ireland. But shady characters--terrorists really--from his past come to the stately mansion with blackmail and kidnapping on their minds. And with his family's after at risk, his future in peril, all Brenan can hope for is The Christmas Miracle.

***My Personal Review of The Christmas Miracle***

I loved this story, a man with an Irish background and a past that will come around to haunt him.  I love the way they have the perfect family but their bliss is threatened by his past.  Brenan and Julie are awesome characters and the love they feel for each other and their children is amazing and really comes through in the story :)  His wife may be rich and have an inheritance from her first husband but will that be shattered?  A great read for the holidays!

 Holiday Wish by JD Wylde 
Vaughn Jennings has one rule he refuses to break. Not even for Chelsea Chathford, the curvaceous master carpenter he employs. With just reason. But with every day that goes by, it gets harder and harder to follow his rule. Can he follow his heart? Or forever wish he had? Because Christmas comes but once a year. And with it, the only chance to have his Holiday Wish come true.

***My Personal Review of Holiday Wish***

Being in love with your boss is a hard thing to handle, especially when there is a company policy against workplace relationships.  And then there is the fact that Chelsea is a master carpenter, a place where a woman does not get much respect.  But Chelsea is strong, independent, sexy and bound and determined to get Vaughn.  I love the character of Chelsea because she is very complex - she is a tomboy but still a hot vixen at the same time.  But then we start to see things from Vaughn's point of view, and we see that he really does want Chelsea too, although he is too proud and manly to change his mind on anything.  But I also love that he has a vulnerable side and that there is a GOOD reason for his rule.  It makes him much more of a sympathetic character especially after the first few chapters are devoted to Chelsea's POV and what a hard-ass he is.  Packed with tons of sizzle and spice, this story keeps you enthralled to the very end!  A great end to the trilogy of Holiday Bliss :)
