Tami Hoag

Tami Hoag was the first adult author that I read when I was in Junior High School. Her books were my first as a growing adolescent and the books that lead me to other authors that I called some of my favorites. The first book that I ever bought on my own was Guilty As Sin by Tami Hoag and I will always love that book. I have almost all of her books and they are mostly mystery books but she started out writing romance and lately she has been reissuing those books and I have bought them and loved them when I finished reading them. Rumor Has It is the first book in her Quaid Horses series and I will be reading and reviewing the next and last book in the series called, The Man of Her Dreams. Katie Quaid, the heroine, could never refuse a dare and that has been true throughout her life. It was the quality that had once made her a world-class equestrian and it was also the reason she’d been elected to introduce herself to Briarwood’s intimidating gorgeous new resident.
It took one week to make Nick Leone the focus of the Virginia town’s rumor mill and so far he was a CIA agent, a male model, a fugitive and maybe even all three. But whatever Nick was, Katie learned one thing right away was that she liked him and that made him the greatest danger she’d faced since the accident that had ended her riding career. In the five years since, she’d buried herself in her business of restoring historic homes because she’s afraid to share her scars with any man. These scars had destroyed more than one of her dreams and it has kept her from ever really developing a real and lasting relationship with a man. Nick had disappointments of his own, but after meeting Katie, he sensed that fate had a better plan all along for them both. And soon he would pose her with the greatest dare of all…to love again because they both deserve to be happy.
I really love reading Tami Hoag’s romance novels because they show me how different she writes her mystery novels after writing her romance novels in the beginning of her writing career. I really loved the cover of this book when I found it on the bookshelf at BN and after reading the blurb on the back cover I decided to give this novel a try since I loved reading her previous romance novels. Katie Quaid is such a strong heroine who has had her share of disappointments but she has tried to go on with her life as best as possible so I think that meeting Nick Leone was the best thing that could ever happen to her. Nick Leone is such a sexy, strong and amazing man who I really think could be just the man that Katie has been waiting for but didn’t know it. I really thought it was so funny when I finally found out what Nick’s previous job was before he moved to Briarwood because it was totally not what I thought it would be but it made the novel that much more interesting. I had fun reading this novel and I look forward to reading the next book in the series because it’s about Katie’s older brother and her best friend’s budding relationship that we get an introduction to in this book. I give this book 3 Open Books:

Here are the descriptions of the books from the back cover and pictures:

RUMOR HAS IT $ 6.99 (287 Pages)



Katie Quaid could never refuse a dare. It was the quality that had once made her a world-class equestrian. And it was the reason she’d been elected to introduce herself to Briarwood’s intimidating gorgeous new resident. It took one week to make Nick Leone the focus of the Virginia town’s rumor mill. So far he was a CIA agent, a male model, a fugitive—maybe all three.

Whatever Nick was, Katie learned one thing right away: she like him. And that made him the greatest danger she’d faced since the accident that had ended her riding career. In the five years since, she’d buried herself in her business of restoring historic homes, afraid to share her scars with any man—scars that had destroyed more than one dream.

The first book that I ever bought on my own was Guilty As Sin by Tami Hoag and I will always love and remember it as long as I live. Today I will be writing about 4 books that I really loved reading written by Tami Hoag.

GUILTY AS SIN $ 7.99 (590 Pages)

A cold-blooded kidnapper has been playing a twisted game with a terrified Minnesota town. Now a respected member of the community stands accused of a chilling act of evil. But when a second boy disappears, a frightened public demands to know: Have the police caught the wrong man? Is the nightmare continuing…or just beginning?
Prosecutor Ellen North believes she’s building a case against a guilty man—and that he has an accomplice in the shadows. As she prepares for the trial of her career, Ellen suddenly finds herself swept into a cruel contest of twisted wits, a dark game of life and death…with an evil mind as guilty as sin.

SARAH’S SIN $ 7.99 (248 Pages)

AWAKENED TO A DIFFERENT WORLD…

Matt Thorne had come to his sister’s rural inn to recover from an injury far from the city and his fast-paced life as an emergency room physician. Drifting between sleep and waking, Matt didn’t trust his eyes when he saw the young woman who sat at his bedside in her plain cotton dress and apron, her chestnut hair tucked demurely beneath a white bonnet, like a beautiful vision from the past century.

AWAKENED TO LOVE AND DESIRE

Sarah Troyer had been warned about the womanizing Dr. Thorne, but nothing prepared her for the shiver of desire that shook her to the core when she gazed at him. Though her life was bound by the simple Amish way, Sarah had always longed for the world outside. Her job at the inn already branded her as a rebel in her community, and falling in love with a stranger would mean the loss of her family and the only life she knew. Yet something sparked within her with every touch of his hand, each glance from his dark eyes.

Sarah was willing to allow herself a brief, secret adventure in the arms of a forbidden man. But she hadn’t counted on Matt’s passionate love—a love that would not let go, a love that could cost them both everything they knew…



STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART $ 6.99 (215 Pages)

They say that each of us becomes an entirely new person every seven years. But Rebecca Bradshaw doesn’t feel any different when an old lover shows up severely injured at the hospital therapy department. Seven years ago baseball player Jace Cooper left her without a second thought or the chance to share the life-changing secret she swore she’d keep from him forever. Now he was back, wanting both her help and second chance. Becca hadn’t changed, and she didn’t believe Jace had either, but as she helped him repair his broken body and his fractured past, she would find she was wrong on both counts. The only thing that had stayed the same was the most important thing of all—and now suddenly time was running out.
TAKEN BY STORM $ 6.99 (231 Pages)

As a trauma nurse, Julia McCarver is accustomed to dealing with life-and-death emergencies. But she is the one in shock when she answers the door and finds the past standing there in the person of S.T. “Storm” Dalton. Julia had painstakingly put her life together not just once but three times in the wake of his abrupt and devastating departures, and she has no intention of doing it a fourth time. Because that’s what S.T. promises he will do—break her engagement to another man, her heart, and her future all over again. Except, of course, that’s not what he calls his plan to win her back. He gives himself two weeks to convince Julia that he’s changed, that she is still in love with him, and that—despite conventional wisdom—the fourth time lightning strikes can be a charm.

Phoebe Jordan

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
