Author Bio:

Leslie North is the pen name for a critically-acclaimed author of women’s contemporary romance and fiction. The anonymity gives her the perfect opportunity to paint with her full artistic palette, especially in the romance and erotic fantasy genres.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren’t afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.

Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.

She LOVES reader feedback, and if you have any comments, don’t hesitate to contact her via e-mail: leslie@leslienorthbooks.com.

Book Review: Her Relentless Russian by Leslie North

Book Review: Her Relentless Russian by Leslie North

romance book, new release, Leslie NorthI received this book for free via NetGalley in return for an honest review

I am happy that I chose the third book of the Karev Brothers Series – Her Relentless Russian – , as it is much better than the first installment of the series, even if I was not as content with it, as the last series I read by Leslie North. Leslie has a talent for tying up her series very nicely, which did not happen as well with this one, as it left me still wanting more – more stories, more conclusion, more resolution. Still, I thought this series as a whole, and this book on it own was entertaining.

Usually, I recommend that you can read any of the Author’s books as a stand-alone novel, but I highly suggest that you should read the other two installments first, before diving into this novel. It makes much more sense as a series, than a stand-alone, and will make a lot more sense than if you read it randomly.

That said, I really liked this Karev brother, much better than his arrogant brothers. The female lead – Harper – is feisty, and not someone who would take being bullied into submission, no matter if it is from Dimitri, or anyone else. That was a nice change from the first book, which had a push-over female lead. I like romance novels where both main characters are equal in character.

Title: Her Relentless Russian
Author: Leslie North
Series: Karev Brothers Book 3
Publisher: Relay Publishing
Publication Date: January, 24th, 2017
Genre: Romance, General Fiction (Adult)

Warning: This is not a clean novel

Book Summary:

Rare bookstore owner Dmitry Karev left the Russian Mafia behind when his wife died, but there’s too much at stake to keep his back turned any longer. His father is dead and his brothers may be next. Someone’s been leaving Dmitry clues about the killer, but he never expected his informant to be a bombshell like Harper Allen. Now the curvy computer expert is testing not only Dmitry’s methodical nature, but his self-restraint as well. But with his family’s lives in the balance, Harper may be the best chance Dmitry’s got to catch a killer.

When hacker Harper Allen’s parents used her college money to pay off the Mafia, it was Sergey Karev who financed her education. Now that he’s been murdered, she’s repaying him the only way she can…by helping his son solve the crime. To follow the trail any further, though, she’ll have to convince Dmitry to work with her. The buttoned-up Russian seems hesitant at first, but it doesn’t take long for Harper to discover what’s beneath Dmitry’s icy cool demeanor.

As Harper and Dmitry worm their way deeper into the Russian Mafia, their chemistry becomes undeniable. But with a killer at their heels, they’ll have to stay focused if they want to stay alive.

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Her Ruthless Russian by Leslie North

Book Review: Her Ruthless Russian by Leslie North

I usually like Leslie North’s books. They are perfect contemporary short novels, to read when you want to escape, and don’t think about the real world. She builds worlds you can get lost in, and her characters have depth and charisma. Not with Her Ruthless Russian. […]

Book Review: The Sheikh’s Christmas Present by Leslie North

Book Review: The Sheikh’s Christmas Present by Leslie North

If you are looking for realism, you might want to consider reading another book. Actually, if you are looking for realism in romance novels in general, you are reading the wrong genre. To me, romance novels are about escape, fantasy in a somewhat relatable setting and entertainment.

The Sheik’s Christmas Present is that exactly. An entertaining ride, that features charming characters who are trying to make the best out of situations they have been put in. Yes, I was a little bit put off by how much the female main character, Maria Walken, disliked wealth and money, almost a little too much, but I have actually met a few people who think of being wealthy equals being a bad person, no matter if there is evidence to the contrary.

My dislike of Maria was counterbalanced by the charming, somewhat overbearing male lead, Jarik, who had his own agenda, and would stop nothing from getting him there.

 

 

 

Looking for a book to escape the freezing winter cold? Read this new book from Leslie North: Click To Tweet

I did, however, find the whole “Christmas setting” at the end overbearing. The subject matter centered around Syrian refugees and the Middle East, not exactly the place where anyone would be too eager to celebrate a Christian holiday.

This little unrealistic romance made for an entertaining read, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Book Info:

Title: The Sheikh’s Christmas Present (Shadid Sheikhs Series Book 2)
Author: Lesley North
Publisher: Relay Publishing
Publication Date: December 14th, 2016

 

Book Summary:

The Christmas season is a time for giving, and pilot Maria Walken has a planeload of gifts she’s gathering for Syrian refugees. Her charity has gotten a bad rap, and this time she’s determined to get her cargo delivered in time for the holiday. When a businessman shows up in need of a lift, she can’t stand his display of wealth…or the way he takes her breath away. But when he offers a large donation to her charity, Maria can hardly refuse.

Sheikh Jarik Shadid is trying to make it to Lebanon to testify against a former friend. With his need for discretion and few options to choose from, he’s more than willing to contribute to Maria’s charity in exchange for a seat on her cargo plane. But as a freak snowstorm blows in extending their travel plans, Jarik’s sensible exterior is starting to crack under the beautiful weight of the principled pilot.

Maria always promised herself she’d never fall for a rich man, but as they work to spread holiday cheer, she’s beginning to wonder if Jarik is everything she’s ever wanted for Christmas.

Happy Holidays!
