When Alesha Robinson ended her torrid affair with Derrick Chandler, she gave up the love of her life. Now fate's giving them a second chance. But when Alesha asks Derrick to save her brother, she never dreams what the scorned multimillionaire will demand in exchange: becoming his wife - in name only. Derrick never stopped loving her, but his proposition was supposed to be strictly business - revenge for her cruel betrayal. Until desire reignites - hotter than ever. As ex-lovers give in to their passion, a marriage of convenience is about to become very inconvenient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut! 24 Jan 2012
By Toni Campbell - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
These Arms of Mine is the first Kimani romance by Judy Lynn Hubbard and she's done a great job in her debut. Alesha Robinson's brother is in danger of going to jail for embezzling campaign funds from his employer, Derrick Ashton, and she has decided to beg for leniency and ask that charges not be filed against him. It sounds simple, but Derrick is also the person who's heart she broke two years ago when she ended their relationship and he has never forgiven her. Seeing an opportunity to get revenge and to advance his political career, Derrick forces Alesha to marry him to pay off her brother's debt and to present himself to voters as a family man.

Of course there is more backstory behind Alesha dumping Derrick the first time and her brother's reasons for stealing the money in the first place. Watching them make this arrangement work while surrounded by secrets soon to be revealed was well worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars :0) 24 Jan 2012
By Lady Raven RAVE! - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alesha's affair with Derrick was over before it began a few years ago and Derrick never really got over his relationship with, Alesha. So, when the opportunity came for him to take what he wants, he did. Alesha's goal in seeing Derrick again is to help her brother, unfortunately she has to do what she doesn't want to in order to help him.


This was a sweet story, though when one thinks of blackmail, sweet, doesn't come to mind. I have been reading blackmail concepts for a long time and I still love them. You have the strong sexy Alpha male who has been scorned and wants retribution, and the female who is willing to do what she has to.

The first couple of chapters started out appealing and reminds me of a Harlequin Presents book, which isn't a bad thing. However, as the story progress that thought went away. The story kept the same pace throughout, until an ex came back to into town to cause trouble for both characters. Both Alesha and Derrick's characters complimented each other as they try to figure out their relationship that is based on blackmail.

Sometimes as a reader, in certain books, as you're reading along you play match maker in your head with other characters, which, I did like the secondary characters in this story. Cam, Derrick's best friend, I liked him a lot and of course would hope there is a follow up story which involves, Angela, Alesha's best friend. Also, an odd match would be Robert, Alesha's brother and Diana. Diana has attitude but she needs someone to bring it down a bit and that always makes for a good read, the stormier the better.

This is the author's first book and I have to say well done and I am definitely interested in reading more, as it only can get better with each story. Also, the title got me in the mood to play that song all day.

Storyline: FAIR to GOOD
Intimacy: GOOD
Enjoyment: GOOD

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate classic romance 23 Jan 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Hubbard Kimani debut is first rate classic romance of a seasoned author, you will fall in love with the featured characters and want to read more about the supporting cast that you can not help but embrace and cheer for the heroine. Alesha Robinson and Derrick Chandler story will warm your heart and here's a peek as to why.

To Alesha Robinson family means everything especially since hers is so small. Haven't we all made small sacrifices for the sake of family? What about a change of life sacrifice of all you worked hard for, will you give it up for the sake of family? Have you ever felt like you met "the one" man of your dreams and innocently blew the chance at love, because you didn't think you were ready?
I love reading stories when a heroine comes into her own as an empowered woman.

For Derrick Chandler, his focus is strictly about his career. Since the woman he loved deceived him into a marriage he later regrets, he keeps himself busy with work. When his career hits a speed bump that gives him pause and maybe the opportunity for a second chance, especially one he never thought he have; he make certain that he will have everything at any cost. But will it had all been worth it for the sake of revenge? Well these are just a few of the challenges these two face.
You will root for Derrick Chandler because he is as passionate as he is charming.

This is a very well written and engaging story and a great start for Ms. Hubbard I look forward to reading more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read!! 23 Jan 2012
By Shemah Wright - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Judy Lynn Hubbards debut novel is a steamy romance about ex-lovers reunited because of a marriage of convience. What started out that way quickly turns into something much more because of the desire and love they have for each other can not be ignored! Alesha Robinson and Derrick Chandler marry so she can save her brother and he can rebuild his public image.
I loved this book because to me there is nothing like seeing two people who are meant to be with each other coming together again. Ms. Hubbard did a wonderful job and I can not wait to read more of her work in the future. Be sure to pick up this book and tell your friends about it. you will NOT be dissapointed! Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance that made my heart sing! 5 Mar 2012
By WhisperedWord - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Debut Harlequin Kimani author Judy Lynn Hubbard scores a win with These Arms of Mine. This is Harlequin romance at its best!

The story follows nurse Alesha Robinson and politician Derrick Chandler as they revisit a relationship that ended on rocky terms two years before the story begins. Derrick has become embittered and disillusioned about love, and Alesha quickly sees the impact that her choice from two years ago had on him. Still, with Derrick all that stands between Alesha's brother, Robert, and a prison term for embezzlement, she approaches Derrick with hat in hand.

Derrick isn't about to let Alesha off easily, however. He's in need of a wife to improve his image, and thus his chances of securing a senatorial seat. So he essentially blackmails Alesha into marrying him--in name only--if she wants to keep him from pressing charges against Robert.

What begins as an act of revenge quickly turns against Derrick. He'll soon realize that the feelings he had for Alesha never truly died. But does she feel the same?

The story of how they come together as a couple is unique and sensual, and everything a Harlequin romance should be. I enjoyed Ms. Hubbard's writing style and connected with the characters, rooting for them to overcome pride and confess their feelings to each other. If you're seeking straight-up romance, check this one out!
