Secrets & Speed Dating. Publisher: Harlequin. The host of the speed dating evening – a depressingly stunning model-type who Sophie was sure would never need to attend such an event herself – waited until all eyes were on her. Unlike Sophie, her host looked completely at ease in the uber modern bar, with its black granite floor, chrome and glass furniture, and leather couches. Back in Sydney, this type of place had been Sophie’s domain. But now, back in Perth and her old life 3000 kilometres away, she felt like an impostor. Okay, gentlemen, time to say goodbye and move on to your next date.

When I chose Undaunted's release date, I knew I wanted it in March, and that was about having the other books ready, nothing about March in particular

March 28 ·. Last week the finalists in the annual Romance Writers of America RITA Contest were announced, and there was a lack of representation of authors of colour and LGBTQ+ members. When I chose Undaunted's release date, I knew I wanted it in March, and that was about having the other books ready, nothing about March in particular. But when choosing a date in March, the date to choose was obvious - the 20th 94 I've remembered the 20th.

BOND
Sophie Morgan needed to get her life on track. And according to her life plan, first thing she needed was a boyfriend to attend with her to friend's wedding. After a fail attempt at speed dating, Dan Halliday, bar owner, offered to be her date, in exchanged for working for him at his bar. But when their plans fall to the wayside due to their passions, was there a happy ending when Sophie still carried a secret that could break them up?

This story had great potential. I haven't read any stories that were based on speed dating. And after finishing this book, unfortunately, I still haven't. But as a book part of the Harlequin Romance line, I was slightly disappointed by its lack of emotional depth. The first few chapters were a great start: witty, real, down-to earth. Then for the rest of the book, the main characters were lusting after each other and jumping into bed together whenever they could. What happened to the plot? It felt like the author couldn't think of any other plot ideas and that their sexual attraction was enough to create a love epiphany. Didn't work for me. Of course, they did talk a little so they at least knew each other's backgrounds, but it was a little sterile. And I am still not sure if they even mature emotionally as a couple. I have to admire the heroine. After all the blows that life threw at her, she picked herself right up. The hero was a jerk. Every decision he made towards the heroine was for his gratification in a disguise that he was helping her by making her spontaneous. And when it really counted, he let her down. And when he finally comes crawling back, the groveling scene sucked. I would've made him suffer more. Ahem. But that's just me. Technically, a clean romance. Mostly behind the bedroom door scenes.

This book is not for everyone. You might like it, depending on your taste of romances. If you are looking for a meaningful, gentle romance, please look else where. If you like passion with a minimal of plot, this book is for you. All in all, great possibilities but for me, a total let down. This is a miss.

Sophie Morgan has not had the easiest of times lately. In the last couple of months, she's lost her high flying job, her boyfriend has left her for somebody else and she's back living at home with her caring - if slightly suffocating - mother. Sophie is sick and tired of feeling sorry for herself. She's determined to get her life back and not let all these past setbacks get in the way of her future. The former project manager quickly hatches a plan to reclaim her life and be the mistress of her own destiny. But first she must find a date for her best friend's wedding! Determined to quell her compassionate friends' pitying looks, Sophie wants to find the perfect man to take to the wedding. She wants to find a man who is gorgeous, charismatic and successful - but finding a guy who fits all these requirements proves to be easier said than done! Sophie is about to give up her search for Mr. Perfect - until devastatingly attractive bar manager Dan Halliday catches her eye!

Dan had been drawn to Sophie from the very first moment she had walked into his bar. Smart, stylish and drop dead gorgeous, Dan couldn't help but wonder what a beautiful woman like Sophie was doing at a speed dating event!
