Country Courtship Book Review and Giveaway


hot flash
Only 99c reduced from $3.99 until 12/31
The Texas Two-Step romantic comedy series is a reader favorite. All of the stories in the series are sweet, charming and emotional contemporary romance. Each story in the series stands alone, but all Texas Two-Step novels and novellas feature love stories about members of the Nelson, Murphy or Palmer families — and sometimes, more than one!

When Kelli Palmer meets Bobby Gray Nelson at a family get-together, their attraction is immediate. But Kelli's kid sister already has dibs on Bobby Gray.

Bobby Gray Nelson never takes no for an answer, a resolve that made him a rodeo champion.

But Kelli is standing her ground.

Now Bobby Gray must do something he's never done: woo the woman who's already claimed his heart, and earn permission to place his brand on hers.

Country Courtship is the third sweet romance in the Texas Two-Step contemporary romance series from USA Today bestselling author Kathy Carmichael. Previously titled: Kissing Kelli

My thoughts:

Kelli's younger sister Lori is always upset with Kelli for stealing her boyfriends, even if Kelli doesn't encourage them and never dates them. So Kelli has a rule to never date anyone Lori has ever talked to.

Lori invites Bobby Gray Nelson to her family's party in order to have a date, and Bobby Gray and Kelli meet. There's an instant attraction, but Kelli calls security on Bobby Gray because he won't take no for an answer.

Bobby Gray finds a variety of sick animals and reasons to keep meeting Kelli, but will it be enough to make her fall for this rancher?

Available to buy at only 99c (until 12/31) from...

“I have always had a hard time leisurely reading any of Kathy Carmichael’s books and this one was no exception. This delightful story is sure to please her many and varied fans!” ~ Kathy Boswell, Fresh Fiction

Another beautifully sweet romance from Kathy Carmichael. I simply adore this series. Country Courtship is sweet, funny, and incredibly romantic. I highly recommend it.

The Lassoed Bride (a novella), Texas Two-Step Series Book 2 NEW RELEASE
A Novella. Six years ago, Barbara Palmer fell head-over-heels for cocky cowboy Ben O'Shea. He was devastatingly appealing, and he knew it. He had her heart—until the day he stood her up and disappeared. Now he’s back, determined to take up again where they left off—even though she's about to marry another man.

Despite all the growing up Ben has done in the past six years, including the highly successful dude ranch he's built that's made him a millionaire—he's never forgotten Barb and he wants her back.

But her wedding grows closer every day. He has to win back her love and her trust, before she's lost to him forever.

Meanwhile, Barbara has agreed to marry a man she doesn't love because it will be good for her family's business. Her sisters plan a bachelorette weekend for her at a ranch, which happens to be owned by Ben. The two bump into each other again (literally), and rehash their past. But can they have a future? Or will their past destroy  their chances?

My biggest complaint with this book is that it's a novella. It's a good story, and I feel that it would have benefited from being fleshed out into a full length novel.

Swindled in Paradise Book Review and Giveaway


Sexy sleuths Madison and Fab race to uncover the truth behind a horrific crime… before a loved one pays the ultimate price.

Beautiful Tarpon Cove has everything you’d expect from a paradise retreat: Blue waters, white sand and … murder?

With deadly secrets and dark dealings brewing beneath the surface of Tarpon Cove, Madison and Fab are caught in a race against time to uncover the truth behind the grisly murder, which may only be the tip of the iceberg….

The eighth book in Deborah Brown’s Paradise series, Swindled in Paradise will take you on a high-speed thrill ride through non-stop action, steamy romance, and dark intrigue, and leave you begging for more.

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:

What a great addition to this series! Fab and Madison are at it again, and this time they're trying to protect Didier, Fab's love. He's been accused of murder, and Fab and Madison are trying to clear his name (without getting into too much trouble!) Of course, since it's these two ladies, there will always be trouble!

There's kidnappings, gunfights, psycho exes, and suspicious cops. Didier, Creole and Madison's family are all trying to keep the ladies out of trouble, but their attempts at protection drive Fab and Madison deeper into the dark side of the Keys.

This book is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand alone book. Ms. Brown describes her characters so well that you don't need to read the whole series to love the story. However, I definitely recommend starting from the beginning and enjoying how much these ladies have grown!

Available to buy from.....

"Swindled in Paradise will take you on a high-speed ride through non-stop action adventure, romance, & suspense, & leave you begging for more." 

"LOVE this book series! Each new Paradise escapade surrounds you, and the characters... they unwittingly become your extended family."

"I absolutely love Madison & Fab! Their friendship and their adventures. These two can't stay away from trouble and I love it!"
Above reviews from Goodreads/Amazon

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Landscape for Murder Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE.....

A friend’s murder. An unconnected cast of suspects, including the victim’s missing adult daughter. As if that wasn’t enough, Brynn Bancroft’s winery has been broken into. Can she deal with her co-owner ex and help the police find her friend’s murder so she can finally overcome her own troubled past and enjoy family life with her teenage ward?

My thoughts:

I'm new to Ms. Strand's writing, but she had me hooked from the first chapter. Her characters are so alive that I felt like I really knew them.

Brynn has a life she's beginning to love, running a winery in Sonoma with her ex-husband and raising a teen ward as her son. She's even made a new friend while painting.

Then that friend is found murdered, their winery is burglarized, friends are attacked and people kidnapped.

Can Brynn and Liam discover who is out to get them before their lives are destroyed? Or will these change their future forever?

This is part of a series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone book.

Book available from....

About Brynn Bancroft
Brynn Bancroft evolved from the Jillian Hillcrest mysteries where she served as Jillian’s manager while Chief Financial Officer of Harmonia Therapeutics in Silicon Valley. A shapely blonde with a MENSA IQ, she had an affair with the CEO of the company.

Unfortunately for Brynn, the CEO’s wife figured out that the two were involved and asked Brynn to leave the company, which she agreed to do.

In the meantime, her husband, Liam—not unfamiliar with extramarital affairs himself but also understanding that Brynn grew up in an abusive household- grew tired of waiting for Brynn to commit to their relationship and asked for a divorce. At the same time, he solicited her assistance in developing his new winery in Sonoma County, Calif.

Much like Jillian--who does appear in the Brynn Bancroft mysteries--Brynn, too, attracts mystery and murders as she grows to enjoy life at her ex-husband’s Hilltop Sunset Winery.

Also Available
Hilltop Sunset: A Brynn Bancroft Mystery

A mystery set in wine country pitting financial exec Brynn Bancroft against a determined stalker, a troubled love interest, and career clashes.

Brynn Bancroft learns that a former employee who beat her nearly to death has returned to stalk her and her friend, Jillian Hillcrest, also a former victim.

Recently divorced, Brynn turns to a new love interest only to encounter additional unwelcome issues. Meanwhile, short-timer Brynn, who has resigned from her Silicon Valley company, becomes bored fulfilling her remaining responsibilities there. She begins to prefer supporting the launch of her ex-husband’s new hilltop winery while waiting to move to her next position. Between her stalker and her new love interest, Brynn faces a series of life-changing events.

Book available from....

About the Author

Joyce T. Strand is the author of who-done-it mysteries set in the San Francisco Silicon Valley and Napa-Sonoma wine regions of California.

Her most recent novel, Landscape for Murder, follows Hilltop Sunset which was the first of a new series featuring protagonist Brynn Bancroft, a financial guru in transition to winemaker from corporate executive. Brynn Bancroft is a minor character in Strand's novels On Message, Open Meetings, and Fair Disclosure--three mysteries solved by Jillian Hillcrest, a publicist whose boss was Chief Financial Officer Brynn Bancroft.

Much like her protagonist Jillian Hillcrest, Joyce Strand headed corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in California's Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing by-lined articles, press releases, white papers, and brochures to publicize her companies and their products.

Strand has been a mystery fan since she read her first Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy stories as a teenager. She admits that in between reading Agatha Christie, Ian Fleming, Erle Stanley Gardner, and John McDonald in her youth, she also checked out Tolstoy, Steinbeck, Faulkner, and Dostoyevsky, but her love of the “puzzle” always drew her back to the latest fictional detective. Today she favors John Grisham, Louise Penney, Linwood Barclay, Michael Connelly, and Stieg Larsson. She has always enjoyed the challenge of following clues to solve the puzzle of a mystery before it is revealed.

Joyce lives with her two cats and collection of cow statuary in Southern California, and seeks out and attends as many Broadway musicals and other stage plays as possible.

She received her Ph.D. from the George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA.

Wild Boys After Dark Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASES........
Everything’s naughtier after dark… Fall in love with the Wild & Bad boys. Long enough to burn up the sheets and short enough to leave you craving more.

If raw emotions, cursing, dirty-talk, or intense, passionate sex that sometimes includes a silk tie, turn you off, then the After Dark books are not for you. *NO CLIFFHANGERS*

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**



Wild Boys After Dark, Logan (Book #1)

Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace. 

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand. 

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands. 

Available to buy from ...
Amazon.com   Amazon.co.uk   Barnes and Noble    KOBO    iTunes

My thoughts:

Logan is an ex-Navy Seal and a private investigator, with strong ties to his family. He believes in protecting those in trouble and getting to the bottom of a problem rather than running from it.

Stella has been running for her life, having left her family, friends and her whole life behind in order to protect those that she loves. A run-in in a bar sparks the chemistry between them, but Stella can't allow herself to consider a relationship with anyone, let alone a man who will push until he finds the real her.

I always love Melissa Foster's books, and the After Dark series is hot hot hot! Her books are always amazing, romantic, and sexy. But this series is so hot it blows the rest of her books out of the water! 

If you haven't read Melissa Foster's books before, try this one! It's a quick, super sexy read that you'll love!

Wild Boys After Dark, Heath (Book #2)
No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety. 

Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.

One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?

Receiving a marriage proposal is supposed to make a women happy, but when Erica Lane receives a beautiful marriage proposal from her perfect boyfriend on the eve of her annual camping trip with her best friend, Jackson Wild, the first thing she does is jump into bed with Jackson. 

Jackson’s all too happy to screw the annoyance out of Erica. After all, they’ve always screwed the hell out of each other when they were bored or angry, lonely, or too damn drunk to see straight. 

But the marriage proposal changes everything, and their annual camping trip takes unexpected turns. Will a few nights in the wilderness set these friends with benefits free, or lead them on a path of destruction?

Wild Boys After Dark, Cooper (Book #4)
Releasing 1st December, available to pre-order 

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she’d ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he’s on a mission to find the woman he left behind—the only woman he’s ever loved. 

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She’s a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they’ll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

The Haunted Heart of Rory O'Dannon


NEW RELEASE.....
Is the love of Megara's life a hallucination -- or a ghost?

While delirious with fever, Megara had a visit and fell in love with the Irish poet Rory O'Dannon, but never saw him again. Years later, convinced that he had been a hallucination, she enters a pragmatic marriage to Senator Ken Benedict.

Until a car accident catapults her back to 19th century Ireland--and into Rory's arms.

Despite a challenging new life, Megara helps Rory find his poetry and pledges her heart to him, the night before he is to be hanged for treason...and then she wakes from the coma. Forced by sound evidence, she realizes that Rory was fictional, but discovers the wedding band he gave her and a message that time is running out!

Now Megara must choose between the easy life with her husband, or risk death and a chance for love with Rory.

My thoughts:

Have you ever had a dream so vivid that it changed your life? Meg is a fabulous dancer until she is in a tragic car accident that cripples her and destroys her possibility of a dancing career. When she returns home she meets an amazing Irishman in the middle of the night, and their interaction changes her life forever.

But was he a dream or a reality?

A half a lifetime later she's in another car accident and falls back into the 19th century and meets with the man from her youth. But she's stuck in the 19th century, and he is not what she believed.

When she awakens from a coma, she again has to consider whether this was a dream or if it was reality (or some version of reality).

This story is an amazing blend of historical romance and contemporary fiction. Megara and Rory's love story is beautiful and haunting, and it was very difficult to put this book down.

Booker Dead Heat Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE....
A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.

Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.

As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.

Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.

A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.

My thoughts:

Booker is my favorite P.I., and his current story definitely doesn't disappoint! After someone starts murdering police, the chief approaches Booker to put an end to the killings. Are they being murdered because of a specific case? Or is someone out to kill cops in general?

Will Booker be able to find the killer before the city dissolves into terror? Can he survive the horrors that he'll experience? With Alisa by his side at work and in his personal life and Bolt learning to live within the law, you never know what's going to happen!

As always, Mr. Mefford has told a story so rich in detail that you can smell the urine and the trash (even if you don't want to), and with a cast of characters whose lives you get immersed in and you can't help but cheer for them and mourn their losses. 

This is book 6 in the Booker series, but it can definitely be read as a stand alone story. However, I definitely recommend reading them all! You'll thank me for it.

Seized by Love Book Review and Giveaway

 photo seized by love badge_zpsogf4g5b8.png

NEW RELEASE........
New Addition to the Love in Bloom Series, Seized by Love, Book #1 The Ryders

YOU FELL IN love with Blue Ryder and Lizzie Barber in Seaside Summers, now follow their journey to find true love in SEIZED BY LOVE, the first book in the Ryder series.

Lizzie Barber runs a successful flower shop by day and secretly hosts the Naked Baker webcast at night to help pay for her younger sister’s education. To keep friends and family from finding out about her sexy secret, she’s put her social life on hold until her sister’s education is paid off and she can stop filming the webcast.

Blue Ryder fell hard for Lizzie Barber when he met her a year ago, and he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind since. Everything about the feisty little brunette, from her tight bod to her seductive smile, cuts straight to his heart. Though Lizzie has turned down every invitation he’s extended—Blue is not about to give up trying. 

Renovating Lizzie’s kitchen brings Blue further into Lizzie’s life, and the oven is not the only thing heating up. One night and one powerful kiss changes everything. But when Lizzie’s secret is revealed and the safe bubble she’s hidden in shatters, true love may not be enough to put the pieces back together.

*** THE RYDERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 5-book hot contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series (The Snow Sisters, The Bradens, The Remingtons, & Seaside Summers)

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

While I always love Melissa Foster's books, this one takes the cake (very interestingly shaped cakes even)!

Lizzie is one of the most caring and loving characters I've seen in a long time. While she was in college her family fell on hard times, and Lizzie turned to a wig, glasses and a very carefully placed apron as the Naked Baker in order to put herself through college. She would've stopped long ago but now she's supporting her younger sister and putting her through college.

But Lizzie is very ashamed of her night job, and she refuses to get into any relationship because she knows that no one will understand.

Blue is a gorgeous and very handy man who is doing lots of home repairs for Lizzie, while asking her out every chance that he gets.  They have a ton of chemistry, but Lizzie can't allow herself to get into a relationship, and Blue has been hurt in the past and has trust issues.

Will they be able to make a relationship work? Or will their pasts (and present) derail any potential relationship they may have?
