The first time Travis North lays eyes on Liana McDermott, she’s wearing the most hideous bridesmaid dress he’s ever seen. He doesn’t immediately recognize the world-famous model who is attending her cousin Enid’s wedding at the country club he owns. Thanks to Enid’s shameless matchmaking. Travis and Liana become acquainted and later embark on a two-week fling intended to be free of emotion and entanglement. As Liana’s return to work gets closer, however, Travis wonders how he’ll ever let her go
when the time comes whole Liana considers whether he might be her true north. Two high-powered careers, two amazing weeks and a love that comes along just once in a lifetime. Is she ready to give up her career for a different kind of life? Does he want the same things she does? After insisting on an emotionless affair, she can’t very well ask him. Or can she?
I have to admit that I heard Marie Force speak at a conference and had to check her book out. This is the one that she was told wouldn’t sale because it is about a model. She went on to self-publish. Sales skyrocketed. True North is an interesting read. I wasn’t put off by the heroine’s profession. Force made her issues as real as any woman’s would be. The hero is a hot and self-made man that is easily likable. The dog adds a realism. This book is nicely done and satisfying.
NIGHTFALL - A Dark Age Dawning Novel by Ellen Connor

Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought, in her wildest nightmares, that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her–one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.
The mysterious ex-marine named Mason owes a life debt to Jenna’s father. Skilled and steadfast, he’s ready for the prophesied change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and the mutant dogs attack–vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong.
When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes, too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion–a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.
I got this book at RWA Nationals in 2011, but it was kept toward the bottom of my to-be-read stack because I kept stacking books on top. Finally, I turned the pile upside down and very soon I was reading Nightfall. Wow. Well, if the cover doesn’t grab you…and the blurb doesn’t grab you, the high-action book will definitely grab you.
This book starts by explaining that in m id-twenty-first century, the world, as we know it implodes. Without power to supply all our needs, people are left to fend for themselves. Can you imagine? Well, this is about two characters, Jenna and Mason, who find a way to cope and survive whatever comes their way. Believe me, if the world is ever in a crisis as this book describes, I hope there’s a guy like Mason available to help me survive. It might sound like a terrifying situation, but I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book. Paranormal Romance
