Everybody knows that tomorrow is a day for romance, but if you would rather stay in and enjoy some book based romance, I have a few suggestions that you might enjoy! If you are looking for a fun and steamy romance, I think you’ll find something you’ll like in the Blaze line from Harlequin. This has become one of my favorite lines among Harlequins any offerings. Want a description of Blaze?
You like it hot! Harlequin Blaze stories sizzle with strong heroines and irresistible heroes playing the game of modern love and lust. They’re fun, sexy and always steamy. – Harlequin
Here are some short reviews of a few Blaze titles that I have read recently.

Lying In Bed
Despite the fact that the premise made my inner HR lady cringe, I actually ended up really liking this one! The set-up of posing a a married couple worked well because these were two people that were in competition for the same job. That added even more tension to the whole plot and made the romance even more enjoyable. This was really entertaining with a very strong and well developed female protagonist.
One More Kiss
The returning soldier is a theme that I am seeing more and more of these days, especially in romance. Obviously, it is a reflection of what is going on in society right now, and i have to say that it has provided some great romances. One More Kiss tells the story of one soldier that doesn’t know who he is outside of the Marines, but he knows he wants a second chance to rekindle the marriage that never really had a chance. This book was full of tension, great love scenes and some very emotional moments.
This was another returning soldier story and it had a leading lady that I was not that fond of. I was afraid that her character would keep me from enjoying this book, but the author did a good job of turning the whole thing around. Eventually, you see that Gage is more than his POW status and Hope is more than just a journalist looking for a big story. This book had a lot of interaction with family and community, which I also enjoyed.
His Kind of Trouble
This particular title just wasn’t a win for me. It felt like all of the people in this book were caricatures and not really developed. The story didn’t hold my attention and the chemistry between the two protagonists wasn’t up to par for this series, in my opinion. The tropical setting was fun and the side plot involving Ana’s sister was interesting, but this wasn’t my favorite, overall.
I received these books from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
