Call Me Valentino uses the same hero set in five different worlds. Your new book boyfriend is a cowboy, an FBI agent, A Highland Laird, a real estate developer and even a vampire.

The Matron by Kirsten Osbourne 
Since being widowed, Cassie Morgan had devoted her life to the orphans in the orphanage she'd managed. When a new church took over the orphanage and decided to turn it into a boys' home, she was both frightened and unsure about how she would make things work for the girls. Being told she had to take fifteen young ladies all the way to Texas from New York didn't make her feel better. 

Valentino Hayes had spend his entire adult life searching for the younger brother he vaguely remembered. Just after finding a lead that would send him to Fort Worth, he was offered the job of driving a bus full of orphans to Texas. He jumped at the chance, knowing he needed to not only find his brother, but work while he was searching. He didn't plan on Mrs. Morgan's love for the children to turn his head. Could he convince her to travel with him? And how was he going to provide for a wife while he was still searching for his brother? 

Undercovers by Jamie Lee Scott 
When FBI agent Valentino "Vin" Jackson's undercover sting operation goes bad, he teams up with Special Agent Ellis Boyd of the DEA, who has some special talents of her own, to take down a drug ring working for the Mexican cartels. 

The Brute and the Blogger by Olivia Gaines 
Tino Boehner was up to his ears with Ebony Miller’s pot shots at him on her blog. Just as he was trying to figure out how to turn the tables, fate dumped her in his lap. Seizing the opportunity, he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse; come work by his side for a month. 

A month can be a lifetime, or just enough time to make a man want to change his brutish ways. 

Highlander, The Archer by Hildie McQueen 
Valent made an oath to protect the McLeod clan after they rescued him as a foundling. However, after years of mistreatments at the Lairds hands, he questions his obligation to uphold his promise. 

When a rival clan attacks and kills her brothers, Ariana McLeod's world is turned upside down. That she's fallen in love with the handsome archer, Valent, is a complication and a blessing at once. Amidst battles, revelations and treachery, is it possible to expect their love to triumph? 

A Vampire's Penance by Jordan K. Rose 
The chain of events set in motion when Rafe Valentino tries to stop his brother from making the stupidest decision of his life borders on deadly. Rafe goes from being one of the most terrifying creatures to walk the earth to requiring around the clock nursing care. As if being physically injured wasn’t enough, the senior member of The Vampire Guard has no choice but to reveal the heinous secret of his past in order to protect nurse Maddie Van Kool from throwing away her life on him.

Vikki’s Musings

Jordan K. Rose asked me if I would be interested in doing a Spotlight for the release of Call me Valentino by several great authors. She sent me an ARC of A Vampire’s Penance. While I have ordered the collection, it does not come out until today, so I have not read the other books in this boxed set, but I plan to. This is the first book by Jordan K. Rose I have read, and it was excellent. I found it highly entertaining and will definitely be looking for the upcoming books in this new series.

Raffaele Valentino is attracted to Nurse Maddie Van Kool, but because of his dark past, he will not consider a relationship with her, even though she has been casting out lures for him for years. When he is injured and needs around the clock nursing, he is faced with spending a great deal of time alone with Maddie.

When he realizes Maddie is not going to get over her attraction to him, he reveals his sordid past to protect her from the monster he believes he is. Will Maddie turn away in horror when he tells her his secrets, or will she embrace him in her love?

I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted read. The story is fast-paced and kept me turning the pages on my Kindle as quick as possible. I must say that for such a short story, the characters are well-developed and the romance between Rafe and Maddie is very believable. I was rooting for Maddie from the first for her to get past Rafe’s shield. I always enjoy a good Vampire romance and this one just hit the spot. Happy reading!
