Love, Romance And More
Cynthia Thornton, co-owner of TNT Event Planners, would be described as beautiful, smart, talented and witty. But, if you asked any woman to describe her, they would simply call her a [...]. Cynthia admits that she has slept with her share of men but that was in her past. After an affair with the newly-elected governor and being a bridesmaid for her friends, Cynthia made a vow of celibacy until she could find a Prince of her own. In the third installment of the Heart Series, Look Into My Heat, Iris Bolling shows that love will capture you when you least expect it.
Cynthia is determined to marry someone of statue and wealth. After meeting Prince LaVere`, who showered her with gifts, she knew she would have everything she has ever wanted. Cynthia also knew a secret and someone was willing to kill her to make sure that she kept it. To keep her safe, Samuel Lassiter, former CIA operative, was assigned to protect her. Samuel was not happy with this particular assignment. Trying to keep a sexy, opinionated woman safe would be difficult. Yet, Samuel knew the first time he saw her that someone needed to protect him from falling for her.
Bolling weaves an interesting tale of romance and political suspense. Cynthia learned the difference between love for material things and love of the heart. There were many returning characters and many new ones that will make you laugh out loud. Bolling has definitely grown as a writer and makes it a point to take her time to tell the entire story. The only distracting feature was editing. However, since I was so engrossed in the story, it was ok, for me, to overlook some of them. I would recommend this series for anyone that enjoys romance mixed with a little suspense.

Three Times a Charm
Author Iris Bolling has quickly made a fan of me with her Heart series. I fell in love with her writing style and love the fact that each book takes on a new main character yet still connecting the previous books. In this one Ms. Cynthia Thornton takes the lead and is as sassy as ever.
Cynthia Thornton is ˝ of the dual TNT catering service. While she is the last of her click that is still not married she is still going strong. Cynthia has decided to stop being a man eater and wait for Mr. Right and not just Mr. Right Now. She's still friends with her ex lover Governor Gavin and after an impromptu meeting he asks her to keep something for him(in case something happens to him) and from there her life is sent into a tail spin. Thus the drama is kicked up a couple of notches as the whole gang is back.
Brian former FBI agent gets wind of the plot to eliminate Cynthia and he assigns her security as she is like a little sister to him. Sam Lassiter is assign her personally body guard. Mean, lean dark and handsome. Sam was by far my favorite in this book. There is a lot to love about Sam and that won't go unnoticed by Cynthia either, only she has committed to marry Prince LeVere'. Prince LeVere' seems to have everything any woman can want - the looks, the power and the money to boot. With all her dreams about to come true will it be enough for her?
In this installment the friends are still going tough and everyone's marriage is still intact and going strong. All the main characters and supporting characters from the two previous books are back and we keep up with them. With Cynthia having the lead we meet her over bearing mother, her superstar brother Blake both added a nice element to the story. I truly cannot wait to see what Ms. Bolling has in store for us readers next as ALL her books have keep me up at night getting to the end cause I just had to see what was going to happen next. Once again I was truly interested in the political under tone that takes place in ALL three books. EXCELLENT read I recommend all three of this Heart series you will not be disappointed.

Cynthia: On the throne!,
Cynthia Antoinette Thornton: If you don't know who she really is, you most certainly will find out!!!
Look Into My Heart is the third novel in the Heart Series by Author Iris Bolling. The novel picks up immediately where The Heart of Him left off, with Cynthia recovering from her sudden 'fall' before Prince LaVere Ashro of Emure. All she wants is love...but someone wants her dead. She has it all as a wealthy socialite but what her loyal friends, Roz, Tracy and Ashley have is far more valuable: a family. After having a brief affair with the Governor, Gavin Roberts (who marries Carolyn Roth), she places herself on lockdown until the right man arrives.
Little did she know what she'd have to endure to make that happen!
Although Cynthia's whirlwind relationship with Prince LaVere is making world news, it's not rubbing everyone the right way. From her closest male confidant, Brian to the unknown Samuel Lassiter, when her life is placed on the line, it becomes personal for everyone involved, even Attorney General JD Harrison.
Bolling does not waste time hitting the reader with the facts and taking them down pieces of memory lane. She places the reader right in the heart of the situation, as if they could watch it all in disguise. Make no mistake, many things are revealed in this third installment, as Cynthia has to endure test after test against the odds that seemingly throw themselves in her life.
Overall, Bolling's talent and writing experience continues to soar in the Heart Series. It is a pleasure to be so enthralled in such a world of political realm and not feel dastardly afterwards. Kudos to Iris Bolling for elevating the literary industry!
