    About "Victoria Dahl"

    1. Victoria Dahl

      I have my mother to thank for my passion for writing My mom is an avid reader of popular fiction, and I began reading highly inappropriate books around the age of eleven, I think Thanks, Mom, for always leaving those delicious books strewn about To Tempt a Scotsman, a Golden Heart winning historical, was my first published book Here I am signing the cover A Rake s Guide to Pleasure which was excerpted at the back of Scotsman is my second.Due to my all around goofiness, my agent suggested I also try my hand at a contemporary romantic comedy Boy, is my agent smart I had a great time writing Talk Me Down, the story of a young woman who goes back to her small hometown in Colorado and causes a huge stir with her secretive career and her burgeoning relationship with the chief of police Not only did I have a great time writing it, but Tara Parsons at HQN liked it too So if you like cold weather, hot sex and dirty jokes, be sure to check out Talk Me Down out in January 2009.Speaking of cold weather, my family and I live in a beautiful ski town in Utah No, I don t ski I prefer to sit inside with a hot toddy and a good book while the snow falls It s especially beautiful to watch when from the inside I have a wonderful husband and children, and the house is kind of crowded, what with the dukes, Scotsmen, police chiefs, and naughty ladies running around, but my family is very understanding about my imaginary friends Good thing, since they refuse to leave

    1. This was one of those rare moments where 10 pages into the book and I was overwhelmed with sadness Sadness knowing that the I flip the pages the nearer I got to the end The story about the Donovan siblings just sucked me in and got me bewitched with their witty sibling antics Tessa was just the girl I really felt for her Being orphans at an early age had made Eric, Jaime and Tessa very close to each other And Tessa had made her ultimate priority to keep all three of them together no matter what [...]


    2. Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsHis hand slid up to grip her hip as if he were afraid he d float right off the earth if he didn t hold on She loved that she was his anchor, if only for this one brief moment A series centered around siblings Stop right there, SOLD I love all kinds of romance in all different types of sub genres, but I have a huge soft spot for series that are centered around families, especially when each sibling gets their own book I love this element in the Rough Riders s [...]


    3. Tessa Donovan really doesn t need this Not only was their family brewery robbed, but her brother managed to blow some important business negotiations by sleeping with the man s daughter and getting caught by her irate father She can fix this, after all she spent most of her life fixing things and cleaning up after her brothers Of course there s some worthy distraction this time Detective Luke Asher.Luke is an old friend of her brother s He knows he should stay away from Tessa, after all his repu [...]


    4. 3.5 starsThe first book in Dahl s DBB series We get to know the Donovan siblings, Eric, Jamie and Tessa who all work in the family brewery business This book is Tessa s story and we soon learn this gregarious young lady has a few insecurities and fears Tessa, the youngest sibling often finds herself as peacemaker of the family When she was fourteen, both parents were killed in a car accident Oldest brother Eric stepped up to the plate and moved back home to help care for his brother and sister.N [...]


    5. 4.5 Stars Once again, Dahl has managed to give me a winner I had a few moments here and there where Tessa grated on me, but I really understood what was driving her, so I was able to be patient for the most part My issues with her caused me to drop my grade a little, but I ll get into that in a bit.I know when I pick up a contemporary by Dahl that I ll get humor, well developed characters, and lots of sexy And boy, does she deliver here The sexy times were great, although a little less flamboya [...]


    6. Il romanzo viaggia su due binari, il romance e l investigazione, che si intrecciano e mescolano creando una storia che, anche se non perfetta, risulta un piacevole intrattenimento per chi st cercando alcuni momenti di relax e leggerezza.La parte romance vede Tessa Donovan giovane proprietaria di un birrificio che gestisce assieme ai due fratelli maggiori Eric e James e Luke Ashton detective di polizia duro e dal passato e presente pieno di problemi incontrarsi dopo il furto di alcuni computer de [...]


    7. Good Girls Don t begins a family family business contemporary series somewhat in the Susan Mallery mode, but considerably spicier Everyone thinks that Tessa Donovan is an innocent good girl why, I m not exactly sure, since she seems pretty flirtatious and in your face to me Police Detective Luke Asher has a notoriety even less well deserved he s popularly believed to be a ladykiller who dumped his wife when she had cancer and callously knocked up his partner But there is some truth behind each o [...]


    8. 4 stars, but only because I read this series out of order and already was familiar with the suspense part of the book so I found it kind of boring What I loved reading about was Tessa what a great, funny, compassionate character, always trying to fix things between her battling brothers and her romance with hunky police detective Luke These two were probably my favorite characters of the series Fantastic series, highly recommended if you like steamy hot contemporaries with touches of humor.


    9. It was a very sweet, very fun ride I had while reading this book.I could go and rehash the plot I could spoiler you all I could ruin the fun.I could, but I will not I will only tell you the end result It did not disappoint me I had faith in the pink girly cover and it proved to me, that yes, it was a super chick lit It is really hard to find good chick lit these days, is it not Well, it is even harder to find a lite romance read that has any point at all Mostly you feel like somebody told you th [...]


    10. Quickly paced, good dialogue, lots of steam typical of Dahl.A book that s brewery centric sounded awesome I wish it would have been a bigger part of the story In fact, the brewmaster is a wacky side character Lame I could ve gotten down with a hot brewmaster Missed opportunity there view spoiler I was a little turned off at the end with Tessa begging for Luke to take her backddenly, I get why that is so unattractive in general It was within the story, but I was like, nopego ahead and dump her of [...]


    11. Mandi Oh I love Victoria Dahl s contemporaries and when I heard she had a new series coming out about siblings who own a brewery, it was a double win Beer and smut wrapped up into one book Along with many laughs and a little mystery, this book is definitely one I can recommend.Before we discuss let s do a little set up Tessa Donovan lost her parents many years ago in a car accident At that time her older brother Eric took over the family and the brewery in Boulder, CO their father owned Along wi [...]


    12. 4 estrellas por cosas como estas Ya me has o do Mientes a las personas a las que quieres C mo te atreves le reproch entre dientes T no sabes nada de m Eso no es cierto Te conozco lo suficientemente bien como para que me sigas gustando a pesar de eso.


    13. Good Girls Don t is about the Donovan family, two brothers and a sister who together work at their family business the Donovan Brothers brewery Eric the eldest, is the serious, responsible one and took on all the responsibilities at 24 when their parents died Jamie is the charmer, the bar tender and Tessa 28 is the baby of the family who the brothers try to over protect but in reality it is Tessa who works very hard to keep the family together and Eric and Jamie from clashing over Jamie s reckle [...]


    14. I love Victoria Dahl s contemporary romance writing style This book doesn t disappoint but it isn t one of my all time favorites One of the things I especially love about Dahl is that I don t have to love love the characters and the story to love love the book It s her dialogue And the life philosophy that bleeds through her writing I love it.I was quite surprised about the way that Tessa s stories play out and how her issues are addressed Dahl makes a great point about Tessa and how she is livi [...]


    15. Victoria Dahl did it again She writes the best heroes sighs and downright funny romances It was a very quick read I finished it on an afternoon but it was a pure delight What I loved about this book 1 The overprotective brothers2 Hot brooding detective3 Happy and completely hilarious heroine4 The small town setting5 And the clever mystery


    16. Very good start to a promising series Victoria Dahl is an instant buy for me, I like her contemporary books the best They are always sexy and quick moving with strong confident heroes and funny heroines and this one did not disappoint.


    17. Sometimes you just want to read a romance that s not historical, doesn t involve dead people, or the hero and heroine being chased across the state country continent, and isn t chick lit exactly, but isn t emotionally draining either This book, provided by netgalley, does that for me.The synopsis is pretty accurate, so I won t regurgitate the set up, but I just want to say that a the characters really are completely normal, and b although some of the things that happen to them are a little unusu [...]


    18. My search for a good contemporary romance isn t going so well I DNF d this at about 20%.The writing was clumsy, I didn t care about any of the conflicts or the characters The heroine was a compulsive liar, her brothers were paper thin and I disliked the one who was a fuckboi , and the hero is a divorced cop not exactly dreamy IMO.There is a bunch of nonsense such as the fact that the hero s partner his police partner gets pregnant and the whole town assumes he is the father, and he doesn t deny [...]


    19. Tessa Donovan is a bad girl hiding in behind a good girl facade Her brothers think that she s a virgin she s 27 , yet she climbs right on Luke Asher and gives him a good time Virgin I don t think so But Tessa has some problems Deep down she is afraid of loosing the people she loves That s why she lies to her brothers not just about her dating habits, but big stuff like making a deal for their family brewery and she isn t too forthcoming with information about her self and her life, AND she doesn [...]


    20. I didn t think I was going to like this book The first half was really hard for me to take The lying and scheming of the heroine, plus the strange plot, really annoyed me I was just about to give up when I got really intrigued Plus, my husband helped calm me down strange, I know , and pointed out that I was taking it a bit too seriously In the end, I felt this was an extremely well done tale of Tessa growing up I would almost call it a coming of age novel, except she s 27 It worked, despite Tess [...]


    21. Clearly I m going to be in the minority with this book Dahl s writing is great I thought Luke was a great hero I didn t like Tessa At all When Luke accuses her of manipulating her brothers, I thought, Thank you, Luke Now, do you really want to be with a woman like that Sadly, apparently the answer was yes What really bothered me, in the end and continuing into the next book , is that she didn t see what was wrong with tweeting under Jamie s name Even if he is the bad boy and screw up, that wasn [...]


    22. Great beginning to Dahl s new series Both Tessa and Luke frazzled my nerves to some extent However, as the story went along, I found my heart being tugged at by both of them, along with their baggage I love family centered stories I especially enjoyed this one where the youngest sibling and only sister is so determined to keep the family and their brewery safe and thriving for reasons known only to herself The brothers are so different from each other and I look forward to their stories in the n [...]


    23. RESE A crecererasencilloMe ha gustado mucho Ha sido un libro ameno y entretenido Me ha dado envidia la relacion que Tessa tenia con sus hermanos, siempre quise algo as


    24. Tessa Doesn t, But ShouldWhen Tessa Donovan s older brother Jamie makes an error in judgement that threatens her family s brewery and the relationship between him and their eldest brother Eric, Tessa flies into damage control mode She ll do anything to re secure the deal that Jamie s impulsive behavior had blown, just to keep the peace in her family Making her life complicated is her attraction to police detective Luke Asher, the cop investigating the robbery of the brewery s computer and some [...]


    25. I became a quick fan of Victoria Dahl s when I read her novella in The Guy Next Door anthology earlier this summer I was quickly grabbed into the Donovan Brothers series and was eager to move on to the first full length novel in the series I will admit, I was a little miffed when I saw that Eric s story would not be featured first in the series, but I was quickly engaged in girl next door Tessa s story, whom I just couldn t help but like Good Girls Don t has all the things that I LOVE about cont [...]


    26. 3.5 STARS Why I read this book I read Dahl s prequel in the The Guy Next Door anthology and really enjoyed it Deciding to continue the series, I picked up book one of the Donovon Brothers Brewery series.What I liked about this book The first thing that pops into mind about what I liked about this book is the fact that it s based on a family in Boulder, Colorado who run a brewery together I just LOVE series that are centered around families They just add something extra in a romance, another kind [...]


    27. This book was really a mixed bag for me so I d give it 3.5 stars or a B On the one hand, I liked the dialogue and the general flow of the story It s light, sexy and fun, and yet the serious issues mixed in add to the book rather than feeling out of place This resulted in something that I enjoyed most of the time while I was reading it.But then there were the nitpicky things that drove me nuts The biggest had to do with the Donovans insane family dynamic Tessa manipulating her brothers got old, a [...]


    28. My main problem with Good Girls Don t is that the conflicts are based in social s that are not relevant in 21st century America Who cares if an adult single woman is pregnant What kind of brothers warn away a guy from their 27 year old sister These things would have made sense in the 50s or in a country with very conservative values but not in today s setting.I also didn t care for the heroine at all She has this idea that they were a close knit family but she s constantly lying to her brothers, [...]


    29. A good start to the series.At the beginning of the book I did get a bit impatient and wanted to gee the story along a bit Ms Dahl was setting the scene with the family and not really concentrating on the relationship between Luke Tessa and in fact in the beginning I didn t feel the buzz between the two of them and was a bit worried that I wouldn t like the book.BUT I needn t have worried as once it did get going I did feel the heat between the two of them and the sex scenes were hot and had me d [...]


    30. I didn t know how to explain my feeling about this book because I found the story interesting and boring at the same time It wasn t bad but wasn t great either I liked Luke, but Tessa couldn t impress me.It was nice plot The romantic part was great and the sex scenes were hot so I ended up giving this book 4 stars.
