Here is a first excerpt from Sinful Rewards 8 (releasing February 17th) *** We walk toward the south building, Hawke shortening his long stride to match mine. It’s another perfect summer day, the sky blue, the sun fierce. Although my toe aches and I’m trapped in the condo’s grounds, my heart is filled with an irrational joy, my body humming with awareness, thrilled with my military man’s proximity.

7 Reasons Every Romance Fan Should Read the Misadventures in Matrimony Series

In all honesty I’m a new romance fan. Before I read GOOD GROOM HUNTING by Shana Galen I believed every stereotype a lot of people have about romance novels. Shana Galen’s Misadventures in Matrimony series changed my mind about the genre and it quickly ended up on my guilty pleasures list. Without further ado I present seven reasons every romance fan should read Shana Galen’s Misadventures in Matrimony series. 1.THE HEROINES. The series is about four cousins who, as kids swore they would never marry despite the series being set in the Regency era. All three women are strong in their own way and thus really fun to read about. Catherine Fullbright is the protagonist of NO MAN’S BRIDE. She’s the oldest and has to deal with an abusive father, awful sister and mother who is too afraid to raise a hand to defend her. Despite her circumstances and severe...
