series saturday

I love series about family’s. There’s just something about watching the members of a family finding love and catching up with the those we’ve already fallen in love with. One of my favorite series is Wild Irish by Mari Carr. 

come mondayBook 1 Come Monday

Monday’s child is fair of face…

After the death of her mother years prior, Keira Collins became a surrogate parent to her six younger brothers and sisters, her own dreams put on hold. At twenty-seven, she’s finally pursuing a college degree. Between classes, working at the family pub and still tending to siblings, she’s no time for romance. So why is she spending all her rare free time fantasizing about hot Professor Wallace bending her over his desk?

Will Wallace recognizes Keira’s unfulfilled desires, her habit of hiding her beauty, her obsessive need to command every aspect of her life. But Will has needs of his own-and they run far darker than Keira’s. As he initiates her into his lifestyle, offering sweet punishments and sweeter rewards, Will’s sexual authority slowly strips away some of her precious control. The one thing Keira’s not ready to relinquish.

    I have never heard of this series or author. Thanks for cluing me in. It sounds like a good series. I do love family series books – love the camaraderie and revisiting other members from previous books. And glad that Ellora’s Cave got rid of those ridiculous covers.

    I love series romance, especially family ones; just finished the latest Kowalski one – they are a hoot. I will have to check out this series; I never heard of it; sounds v.g.

    And yes, like Patoct said, thank goodness EC got rid of those hideous covers.
