“Molly Jenkins has one naughty little secret: her job as a bestselling erotic fiction author. Until her inspiration runs dry—thanks to a creepy ex—and it's time to skip town and move back to tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado.
One look at former high school hunk chief of police Ben Lawson and Molly is back in business. The town gossip is buzzing at her door and, worse still, a stalker seems to be watching her every move. Thankfully, her very own lawman has taken to coming over, often. The only problem now is that Molly may have to let the cat out of the bag about her chosen profession, and straitlaced Ben will definitely not approve.…”
“Lori Love is yearning for something more
Lori had always planned to get out of tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado, but when her late dad left her his beloved auto body shop, she'd stayed. Now, according to her crazy best friend, Molly, what Lori needs is some excitement, in the form of hot, no-strings-attached sex…and lots of it.
Quinn Jennings has buildings on the brain—not love and romance. A serious architect, he's delighted to discover that Lori is willing to skip dating protocols and head straight for the sheets. And aided by the steamy books on Lori's bedside table, he's busy indulging both of their wildest fantasies. But when life in Tumble Creek takes a dangerous turn for Lori, Quinn's protective instincts kick in.
Suddenly he cares. More than either of them ever expected….”
“Raw, animal magnetism...
...is a big red flag to prim and proper office manager Jane Morgan. After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!
She gives herself one explosive, fantasy-filled night with Chase. The next day it's back to plain Jane and safe men.
But when her beloved brother becomes a murder suspect, it's Chase who comes to her rescue. And Jane discovers that a man who's been around the block knows a thing or two about uncovering the truth...”
The Tumble Creek series was my first foray into the Contemporary Romance [CR] world and I have to say that I LOVED it. There are so many CR books put there and to be quite honest, they have never really drawn me. I usually need my books to have a lot fantastic elements and have at least one foot in the paranormal.
However, Dahl’s books were such a great read that i read them all back to back in just a couple days, now I want more hehe
Each of these books tells the story of a romance being born in a practically frozen small town in the U.S. Tumble creek is a charming little place and you can’t help but being hooked in.
I loved that even though the romance in these novels were sizzling hot and got me fanning myself a few times, the plot in each of the books in quite interesting and it does not get lost in the smut.
We get stalkers, ex-boyfriends, unrequited love turns hatred, social class differences, family issues, bikers and much more in the Tumble Creek series and i could not recommend it more. If you are into steamy romances, these are definitely the books for you!
I just wish there were more books in this series, I wanted to read more about these couples futures hehe =)
My Favorite Book in the Series: Book #1, Talk me down, I loved Molly and Ben’s chemistry.
My Least Favorite Book in the Series: Book #3, Lead me on, I actually really enjoyed the book, but I just can’t stand the whole “guys with tattoos are bad” paradigm, so that was a thorn on my side. I did enjoy Jane and Chase’s romance though and how he broke all her prejudices.
