My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a great little book this is, I read this book in one afternoon because it was so enjoyable I just didn't want to stop reading it.
It is full of so many funny moments and mishaps that I found myself wishing that the book was a little longer but it didn't stop me getting everything I needed from it to make it a memorable read.
I will definitely looking to read more of this series.

Vreeland is a sweet fairy tale for readers of all ages, I enjoyed the story of Anton and his arrival in Vreeland where he meets creatures and fairy folk (Vrees) of all different kinds that come in all different colours shapes and sizes. He finds himself falling love with Titi a Vrees who helps Anton along with her sisters to find his way around Vreeland. The story has a few twists to keep you reading to the end including a battle to save the Queen but it leaves you to make up your own mind of what is real and what is make believe. I did have a hard time sometimes with the conversations between the Vrees and Anton because the Vrees tended to speak in a muddle so a child might get a little confused when reading those parts of the story but apart from that it was a lovely story.

What an absolutely brilliant book, ya'll need to read this!!!
I read this book not really knowing what to expect but OMG I couldn't put it down once I started reading it.
Range Reardon is so hard a character not to love right from the start when we first read about his horrible childhood (it tugged at my heartstrings) to how he grew up to be a the hard working loyal man and owner of the Junkyard all because of his friendship with Buck.
I love an alpha male and Range has that extra something special about his character, his all protective demina and his need to take control of every situation is so appealing that I want a RANGE of my own!!.
Clover I instantly liked and loved how her character grew as the story progressed from being a quiet sheltered girl into a full blooded hot woman who stood by the man she loved regardless of what others said or did to try and separate them.
The story is very fast paced and and had me shed a tear or two as we approached the end, I really hope that there will be more books to come as I need to know what happens to the other boys from the Junkyard.
Brilliant first book from this author a most enjoyable read.

The Parlour, VDB 1
Charlotte E HartAbove all else Pascal Van Der Braack is a gentleman. Devastatingly debonair and seductively charming. Always styled and perfected. He is also a cad, scoundrel, rogue and kink empire founder. Tutored in the highest of society, having been born of royalty only to deny it, he found his solace in a world where rules need not apply. Where he chooses to ensure rules and duty do not apply. Some call him Sir, others call him Master and no one would dare risk his wrath unless they required the punishment he favourably delivers. No one except one, who has just strapped a collar around his throat. One he asked for. Now he needs to appropriate his businesses correctly for peace to ensue. He needs to find the correct path forward for everyone concerned, so he can relax, enjoy, and finally hand over the responsibility to someone else. Simple. But where comfort and a safety of sorts once dwelt, there is now uncertainty, and a feeling of longing he no longer understands. A need unfulfilled. As problems arise and allies scheme, he finds himself searching for answers in the most unlikely of places. Lilah It’s the same every day. I found it odd at first but I’m used to it now. I was so tired and weak when I got here that it was helpful really. That small woman comes in to help me wash and get dressed. I don’t know where the clothes come from, but they’re nice enough, and at least they’re clean and dry. Not like the rags I arrived in. They were taken from me the moment I took them off to get into the shower, the first shower I’d had in god knows how long. For nearly a year, I’d been running the streets. A year without a real bed or a home of any sort. There isn’t a long and awful story to tell about an abusive family member or a broken home. I suppose I just slipped through the cracks and got lost at some point. I lost my job first, then I couldn’t afford the bills or my apartment, so the landlord threw me out. I don’t blame him, he did the right thing for himself. And then it was just a long and never-ending road to nothingness. So, now I’m here, wherever here is. And I don’t know why…
EXCERPT:Lilah's POV: VDB1 all © Charlotte E Hart "You will not hoist me anywhere, you will carry on with our conver ...." The speed of his strides across to me has my feet retreating at the very real possibility of being hoisted. "I will, my dear, and I shall enjoy the privilege greatly," he says, circling my frame and smacking my arse in the process. My body scoots forward again and is stopped only by his arm wrapping around my waist, drawing me back to his warm body. "You should be careful with your tone around such an enticement, hmm? Perhaps we should fuck here rather than in front of Him, hmm? Does the thought make you so nervous?" My frame immediately stills in his arms. "Ahh, you did not realise my plot." No, I did not. "Mmm," he muses, breathing into my neck and dragging his tongue across the soft spot behind my ear. Tingles instantly start to collapse my aim for 'in control' at the very thought of his lips. "Should you still require access to my innards, Lilah, you shall have to ask him." "For what?" "To teach you to take them from me, of course. That is what you wanted, hmm?"
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Charlotte is a dark erotic romance/suspense author living in the heart of the Shropshire countryside in Great Britain. She’s lived all across the United Kingdom due to her previous employment as an Event manager but finally settled in a small town that still reeks of old school England. Her love of reading started in college, but the call to writing came much later in life, when she finally had the chance to put pen to paper for the first time. Writing has become a revolution for the soul and she cherishes every second that she’s sitting at the laptop tapping her way into a new character. When not writing she enjoys socialising with close friends and travelling to all the major cities across the globe. Travel has always been a constant companion to reading throughout her life and only increases her thirst for stimulation. With the release of The White Trilogy, she intends to spend the next year enjoying every element of being a published author and learning as much as she can. She also very much looks forward to hopefully meeting some fans at some point.
Molly Duncan, forty-one, has come to Passion Lake for three things. A new job. A new life. And a new Dom. Her Dom husband has been dead for four years and she desperately wants the closeness of a loving D/s relationship. So she accepts a job at the Passion Lake library and buys an old semi-run-down farm suitable for boarding horses. Horses were a huge part of her life growing up, until she met and married Tom and entered his world of BDSM. Now she hopes to combine both of her passions.
Enter Jared Thompkins, seven-time World All-Around Rodeo Champion and circuit heart-throb. His career ended by injury at age twenty-eight, he’s ready to settle down and find a submissive of his own. A woman he can love and cherish and dominate the hell out of. On the recommendation of his older brother Mitch, he applies for the position of stable manager.
Molly sees a handsome, cocky, young cowboy with a swagger for a walk and a panty-melting grin. Jared sees a lusty, voluptuous, mature blond who’s ready for what he can give her.
The attraction between them is instantaneous and explosive. Each is exactly what the other has been seeking. Now all Jared has to do is prove to a wary Molly that it’s not just sex. He’s in it for the long haul. And a thirteen-year age difference is not the insurmountable obstacle she seems to think it is.
Julie Shelton is 73 years old, a retired storyteller/puppeteer. She loves reading and writing, ballet, pistachio ice cream, the mountains, Medieval illuminated manuscripts, Classical music. 80’s rock ballads, and violets.
She hates hypocrisy, intolerance, liver, and sushi.
If she were a tree, she would be a live oak because it lasts for hundreds of years, it doesn’t shed its leaves in the winter, and it’s great for climbing and hanging swings from.
If she were a piece of music…hmmm, that’s a bit tougher. She’d either be Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto #2 in C Minor, the most achingly romantic piece of music ever written, or Prokofiev’s sumptuous score to the ballet Romeo and Juliet.
