Contemporary Romance

Fall in love with seven sexy and irresistible soldiers who find their courage and heart tested like never before in the battle for love! This multi-author collaborative series of contemporary romance novels is brought to you by bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Roxanne St. Claire, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Julia London, Cristin Harber and Samantha Chase. You won't want to miss a single one!


Ex-soldier Zane Tucker is perfectly happy with his single life and his adventure watersports business. A gambler by nature, he figures the odds of finding a woman for forever are a lot longer than finding a woman for right now. And as a man of action and not emotion, he believes a woman with lasting romance on the mind would want someone with less hard muscle and more soft sentiment. But then his dog hurtles toward the new county librarian, yanking Zane into her delicate, pretty presence. Will they both scare her away? And why does that worry him so?

Harper Grace has a bucket list of goals to tick off and is determined to live every moment to the fullest by overcoming her usual shyness. No one will call her too timid and too boring ever again. But then a giant of a man and his equally large dog charge into her life and she can't decide if she wants to take a step back…or step fully into Zane's strong arms. She's been brave enough to change her life, but does she have enough courage to risk her heart?

Don't miss any of the sexy soldiers!

3 stars for ZANE.

Former soldier Zane Tucker is sick and tired of people in Eagle's Ridge thinking he's moping since he's the last single Tucker…he's just fine being playing the field! When his neurotic dog knocks over the town's new librarian Harper Grace, she's the one that knocks him on his ass. Harper's recently moved to town from San Francisco, and while she's always been shy and demure, she's determined to start a new bold life and learn to kick ass and take names. Getting to know Zane is her first step, and she's beyond glad that she decided to go for it. But Zane isn't a forever kinda guy, and Harper's got to get it through her hearts and rainbows head that this is just fun and nothing serious.

I'm not sure what it was about ZANE that didn't do it for me, but it was a struggle to get through this offering in the multi-author 7 Brides for 7 Soldiers series. It wasn't a bad book, but it was beyond predictable, but without the humor and chemistry that would make me overlook such a thing. I could honestly anticipate every word of this story, and after about 10 pages in, I knew I couldn't really connect with the characters. The very few sex scenes were super ho-hum, uninspiring and unfortunate, since some kick-ass scenes of hide the cannoli could've helped this one out. I'm sure fans of Ms. Ridgway will totally dig this one, but it wasn't for me.

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
