Holland Series by Marquita Valentine

Seduction of the Billionaire Playboy Actor  (Holland Springs, #0.5)Seduction of the Billionaire Playboy Actor by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A simple crush is something more during a New Years Eve Masquerade Party…

This book starts off the series and it is one that helps you understand the history and anguish the female character feels in the next book in the series.
The short story was interesting and enjoyable story to read and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

I should also note that this a kindle freebie.

Twice Tempted (Holland Springs, #1)Twice Tempted by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(*Note: Please read the first book in this series Seduction of the Billionaire Playboy Actor to better understand the emotions and feelings of Zoe, the main female character.)

The book is set up four years after the last book.

Christian is a movie star playboy that has played the game and has some skeleton that he wishes to be buried in closet and never brought to light. But things have a way to surface and at times with help…
Zoe has moved on with her life after the fling with Christian that happened four years earlier or has she?
Zoe is a famous striving author with a movie deal in the works for her books.
Zoe wants Christian to play the villain but why you may ask, well read the book to understand the reason behind.

The saying the pen is mightier than a sword come to mind when you read this but you will also understand that someone pushed what happened to occur and separate these two for the last four years.

I found the book an interesting and enjoyable contemporary erotic romance story.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His Christmas Wish (Holland Springs, #2.5)His Christmas Wish by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Joaquin Morales, war hero, returns home to Holland Springs with one simple Christmas wish. To make a go of the marriage that he walked away from four years earlier. But will he be welcomed home with open are from both his wife and his family that disowned him for marrying Sage?
The book is a short but still enjoyable story, but to me personally I don’t recall any of these characters in the prior stories. This a story that is but isn’t a part.. Overall 3.5 star count.
