But before long, fate has something else in store for the sexy firefighter when a spark of attraction ignites into true love.
I don’t really know Marie Harte and after spending a lot of time on her website lately, I’m thinking I need to remedy that. Especially given her contemporary series, McCauley Brothers. It looks fun and hot and yummy. She’s got some incredible looking shifter series’ too that I’m going to delve into.
Her latest is book 4 in her McCauley Brothers series… (more…)
