Only for You Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE........
Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…

Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.

Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.

But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…

My thoughts:

This book is emotional and hot and made me laugh. I adored how wonderful Bodhi was with Bridgette's son, and it made me think that there is someone out there for everyone, no matter their situation or their past.

Bridgette and Bodhi are crazy hot and can't keep their eyes (or hands) off each other, but they know that they have no future. But can they be happy with what they have?

Also available in Sugar Lake Series
The Real Thing (Sugar Lake Book 1)
Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker.

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancĂ© too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring? 

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

Power Struggle Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE….
One hit man who’s back for revenge.

One detective who’s not going down without a fight.

It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing her best to consider all the evidence.

When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, however, her suspicions are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly clear that not only does he plan to finish what he started but he has her family and loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.

Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…

My thoughts:

This is yet another wonderful, heart wrenching story from Carolyn Arnold! Madison Knight is a detective who is trying to hold it together after a difficult past, and now it looks as if her past is coming to attack her. Literally.

Madison refuses to stand by and let someone else handle the case, yet the suspects haunt her and make the case even more difficult, and even more dangerous.

Can Madison beat Constantine at his own game? Or will he slip through her fingers and continue his reign of terror?

ON Edge Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE....
A mystery client. A professional hit. 

A ruthless man who asserts his will on anyone in his path.

You believe your life is captured in moments…the ones you cherish, the ones you share.

But in the blink of an eye, you lose every moment that holds special meaning.

A respected law career. A larger-than-life father. The love of your life.

Twenty-eight-year-old Ozzie Novak, while shaken to the core, refuses to acknowledge his father's death as accidental. And while his wife's bizarre transformation has rocked his very foundation, he only knows one way to move forward: he must find out who killed his father and why.

Bullets fly and Ozzie's life is hanging in the balance.

As the weight of the world converges into a combustible ball of fire destined to destroy everything, Ozzie is tested like never before. Will one remaining thread of trust be enough to save the one he holds dearest to his heart? 

My thoughts:

I've been reading the Redemption series for a long time, and I've enjoyed the characters and thrills that it provides. However, Ozzie is a brand new character, and I absolutely can't wait to read more about him!

Ozzie is bustling along his life as a low-level lawyer in his father's firm, married to a wonderful woman, and thinking that he has the world in his hand. In one day his entire world falls apart, and he's soon trying to solve a huge mystery while his own life is on the line.

With the sudden craziness in his life can Ozzie find the help he needs to solve his father's death before his own is added to the case file?

The Scoop 
By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the soon-to-be-released Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I've included a cross-over character -- it's a lot more fun that way. Plus -- and here's the real kicker -- I'll write a final six novels that brings all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless. At least that's my hope.

Starting with IN The End (Nov. 10 release), I'll be launching a new book every 2-4 weeks. IN The End will segue into the Ozzie Novak Thrillers. ON Edge (book 1), is due out on November 28. From there, it will be non-stop suspense until all six Ozzie books are released. And my editor tells me that Ozzie Novak is my best character yet.:) So, I hope you're ready for some thrilling binge-reading. 

How can you catch up if you've started the Redemption Thriller Series mid-stream? 
Box sets have been created in the Redemption Thriller Series to allow you to pick up a pretty nice discount. To read the first three Alex Troutt thrillers just copy and paste this link into your browser: http://smarturl.it/05gf5r Or, you can search for Redemption Thriller Series Box Set. Alex Troutt Thrillers books 4-6 are also a box set. The Ivy Nash and Ozzie Novak thriller box sets will be coming soon.

Christmas in Paradise Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE....
My name is Madison Westin. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case my official title is “Holiday Cheermistress.” Nothing stops me from getting my ho-ho-ho on, not even my friends’ Grinch-worthy attitude toward sparkling tinsel, twinkling lights, and tinkling bells.
Hey, if Creole, Fab, and Didier wind up with coal in their stockings, it won’t be my fault.

When some bah-humbug bandit makes the rounds of Tarpon Cove, Fab and I are on the case. It’s the least we can do for our loyal friends. Seasonal crime-victim disorder seems to be on the rise.

Some guy in a Santa suit—well, the top half of one anyway—is robbing local banks. The cops are fingering the wrong guy. And you can bet your light-up Rudolph boxers that if we can’t track the real thief down, one of my merry band of miscreants could be spending the holidays behind bars.


The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”


My thoughts: 

I love the Paradise series, and it's so wonderful to have a Christmas story. Even though the seasons don't change much in the Keys it's fun to see Madison's shell obsession convert to holiday decorations, while Fab's grumpiness about the decorations remains the same no matter what the season.

I am missing the overall mystery, but the character development is fun, and it's great to see Crum get a bigger part in their lives. There's lots of small mysteries to be had, and lots of holiday fun.


Available to buy from.....

"South Florida author Deborah Brown books are infectious.

"My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!"

"This fabulous duo exudes so much sassiness and strong willed characteristics that I absolutely cannot get enough of."

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
