BLURB

 

It all started with a bet.

 

When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up.
Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property.
We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches.
You could say we got off on the wrong foot.
We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out.
He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work.
I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast.
We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it.
But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof.
Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son.
We were in over our heads in more ways than one.
Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother.
And now the inn was the least of my problems.

 

 

 

Well the dynamic duo did it again! What an amazing, emotional, heartfelt love story.  I completely devoured this in one sitting and this story is not exactly short J

This one has a little bit of everything divorced heroine with a son, sport hero, forbidden romance (ex-brother in law).

Presley was married to her high school sweetheart Tanner and they had a son but her husband turned out to be a cheater and sort of a deadbeat dad (he has some demons that wasn’t dealt with properly).  When Presley’s grandfather-in-law passed away he left the family inn to Presley’s son with the other half belonged to her ex-brother-in-law Alex.  Presley decided to move back to start fresh in Beaufort, South Carolina.  Presley wanted to repair the old inn and turn it into Bed and Breakfast but Alex has other ideas.  He wants to sell the old place and skip town as quick as possible.  Presley and Alex could not agree on anything not to mention Alex has some resentment toward Presley for leaving her brother when he was down.  As you can see the tension is high … it’s not all business though … the sexual tension is off the chart high as well J  The minute they laid eyes on each other the attraction is undeniable and they both knew they are in trouble.  Presley has no plan of leaving and Levi refused to back down.  What happen when they have to live under one roof at the same time trying to work out their differences?  Sparks fly, explosive chemistry, and lots of sexual tension.  Hate turns to friendship turns to love … it’s messy and complicated.

I actually really like the relationship development of these two characters.  There are many reasons Alex and Presley took their time and not jump into bed right away.  Presley has a son and she was married to Levi’s brother (who already has a complex that Levi has everything).  Also Levi is only staying for the summer then he has to back to play professional ball.  They tried to fight the attraction but eventually gave in … what they did not expect was to fall in love.  I adore Levi – he is such a good guy at heart.  He is generous, kind and a gentle to his nephew.  Presley went through a lot but she is strong and a great mom.  I also adore the kid Alex.  The neighbor Fern is a hoot J Presley’s friend is hilarious too. What a great cast of secondary characters.  They added so much joy to the story.

This book got everything – angsts, emotional, steamy, sweet, awesome banters and a lot of laughter as well.  All the feels and a HEA! Beautifully written.  MUST READ!

RELEASE DAY: Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry (10/26/2021)

Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry is now live!

Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police, she’s determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.

According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town’s founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn’t realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty. Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she’s trying to forget. He’s insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths. As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy’s own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.

  HOLY MOLLY! Another winner, winner, chicken dinner for this author! Indigo Ridge is book 1 of the new Edens series and WHOA what a great start!  The title of the book threw me off a little bit but this is a classic small town, enemies-to-lovers, contemporary romance with mystery, suspense and one heck of a twist. Quincy is a small town where everyone knows everyone’s business.  Lots of history, tradition, and the true natives rule.  Winslow scored a job as a police chief but she has a lot to prove.  Winslow is in field of mainly men and she is also young.  Her grandfather is Quincy’s mayor so the gossip is that she did not get the job fair and square.  Winslow has quite a hill to climb to prove that she is capable and deserves to be chief.  First night in town, Winslow met Griffin at a bar and they had one unforgettable night.  No strings attached, what’s the harm right?  Turns out the rugged and gorgeous man is a rancher and one of Quincy’s royalty.  Griffin also thought he was just having a night of fun with another tourist – he did not expect the sexy as sin woman is the town’s newest chief of police.  Winslow and Griffin tried to ignore each other but their plan was halted when a young woman was found dead on Griffin’s property.  They had no choice but face each other as Winslow investigates what happened to the young woman.  Everyone in town claimed it was suicide but Winslow’s gut is saying otherwise.  Winslow is definitely not scoring any points when she started digging into the past and stirring up a few cold cases. I have to say I admire Winslow’s character.  She is beautiful, smart, feisty and a strong woman.  It was nice to watch her grow and win over the hearts of people in this small town.  Griffin is gorgeous, hard-working, strong, super protective, and a family guy.  I love that he is caring and protective of Winslow as his girlfriend and at the same time respecting and allowing her to do her job.  Love the chemistry between these two, slow-burning and off the chart sexy.  What starts out as a little fling turns into such a heartwarming beautiful romance.  I adore this book – unique plot, charming characters.  Pretty swoony and romantic but with all the mystery and suspense captivated me until the end.  This one is a page turner – I cannot wait for the rest of the Eden boys 🙂

Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen is available now! (10/12/2021)

RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 12, 2021

 

The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Because Weston’s family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d’oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi!

 

EXCERPT TO SHARE

I wonder what Abbi is like. It doesn’t matter very much, of course. I haven’t agreed to marry her. It’s just one day of my life. And people fascinate me, so even if Abbi’s family is irritating as fuck, I probably won’t take it personally.

But I have a good feeling about Abbi herself. She’s local, which is interesting. Vermonters are pretty cool. They have a rugged mentality, and they rarely complain. And they’re usually hockey fans. What’s not to like about that?

The door opens, and I immediately lose my train of thought. I’m blinking at a pretty blond woman with shoulder-length hair. My first reaction is all hell yes and thank you, Jesus.

Then I realize this is not just any woman. It’s the hot waitress from The Biscuit in the Basket. The one who remembers every order without writing it down. The one who always seems to know when we need something more, or when it’s time to drop the check.

The one with the kissable ivory neck and gray eyes that always make me a little stupid. I’ve never asked her out, because it’s rude to hit on a girl who’s just trying to get through her shift at work. But man, I’d like to.

“Hi,” she says, frowning at me. “Wow. You’re wearing a tie.”

“Too much?” I ask, my hand flying to the knot of silk at my throat. “I could lose the tie.” And, heck, why stop there? If she asked me to lose my trousers, I’d do it. Anything for you, honey.

“No, you look very respectful. Thank you for doing this.”

I blink slowly. I can’t believe my luck. She’s my date? “You work at The Biscuit in the Basket,” I say stupidly. “But your name tag says Gail.”

She smiles. “That’s right. The lazy manager put the wrong name on it, and then wouldn’t redo it for me. But I’m glad you can recognize me without the uniform.”

“Well, sure. You look nice. Your hair is different. Fluffier. Wait. Is fluffy a good thing?” I babble.

She laughs suddenly. “Fluffy is fine. At work they make us wear those visor caps. Like we’re all golf caddies.”

I smile back at her and get a little lost for another moment. And her laugh is terrific. A little husky. I dig it.

“So, uh, are you ready to go?”

That’s when I realize I’m blocking her way out of her own door. “Yup, sorry,” I stammer, leaping to the side like a frisky goat.

Oh, man. Nobody would call me Mr. Smooth right now, that’s for damn sure. I’m glad my teammates aren’t here to witness this. I’d never live it down.

Abbi locks her door. “Where are you from, Weston? Is it too far to go home for Thanksgiving?”

“I’m from the eastern edge of Vermont. But I don’t have a car, and we have practice tomorrow anyway. Hey—does your family drink? I brought a bottle of wine.” I hold it up, along with a bouquet of flowers, too.

“That’s lovely of you,” she says. “I have a bottle in my car too. I find that where alcohol and my so-called family are concerned, more is more. Although I’m driving tonight, so I can’t drink.”

“Your so-called family?”

“Well, it’s complicated without being terribly interesting. But we’re going to my stepfather’s house. I mean, he used to be my stepfather and now he’s married to someone else.”

“Your step-stepmother,” I say, recalling her text message.

“Right.” She leads me off the porch and down the walkway. “My car is just around the back. It won’t take us long to get there. You’ll be eating turkey dumplings in no time.”

“Sounds good. My body is, like, fifty percent wings and fries at this point. I’m sure you know that. I’m at your restaurant all the time.”

“Table number seventeen,” she says cheerfully. “The hockey table. Do you know that we prep a different portion of wings depending on whether you guys win or lose?”

“No, really? Why?”

“Because you eat more and get drunker on the nights you lose than on the nights you win.”

“Huh. That’s very scientific of you.”

She unlocks an elderly Honda Civic and opens the driver’s side door. “Last chance to back out.”

I wouldn’t dream of it. I have to remember how to be Mr. Smooth, though, and flirt properly with Abbi. Who knows? After a great meal, we could make this a night to remember. “I’m at your service,” I say, hoping it sounds a little sexy and not creepy. “Let’s get our turkey on.”

Huh. Mr. Smooth seems to be on vacation today.

I give myself a fifty-fifty shot at success. But I’ve faced worse odds. Game on.

OMG! This book is something cute and fun. Hockey player Weston placed an ad over Thanksgiving offering his fake boyfriend service for 25 bucks. Abbi needs a date for her awkward family dinner, so she took the bait. Turns out Weston needs a date for his nutty family dinner as well so she returned the favor. Let’s the crazy holidays fun begins. Gah! This story really had me smiling the whole way. I enjoy the adorable friendship between these two characters. The attraction is undeniable. Weston’s parents divorced which effects how he looks at commitment and long-term relationship. He is a no strings attached kind of guy that but changes with Abbi. Weston is just a nice guy, honest, fun, endearing. Abbi is focus, hardworking, and a bit sassy LOL 🙂 I think that is why they compliment each other well 😊. I love the funny banters and the chemistry is pretty awesome too.
If you are looking for a lighthearted, sweet, swoony, flirty, fake boyfriend turns friends-with- benefits turns lovers romance – read this one. Adorable read just in time for Thanksgiving 🙂

RELEASE BLITZ: A Moment For Us by Corinne Michaels (10/5/2021)

A Moment For Us by Corinne Michaels is now live!

New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to Willow Creek Valley in this stunning surprise baby/unrequited love romance.

I was totally over Joshua Parkerson. Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when–and everyone knew it–but he never saw me as anything but his little brother’s friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room. I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be. But now he’s back in Willow Creek Valley, and there’s a brand-new spark between us–even he can’t fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we’re together, I swear I can feel the earth shake. It doesn’t mean anything… how could it? I’m over him. Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely. Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him. How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don’t have to define our new family’s future?

Check out this COVER – THESE THORN KISSES by Saffron A. Kent (9/17/2021)

Release Date: December 7


Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.

Blog Tour: Hard To Love by K. Bromberg is available! (9/8/2021)

Hard to Love by K. Bromberg is now live!

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, enemies to lovers romance and a hero who redeems himself to steal your heart . . .

He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly.

Finn Sanderson.

Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move.

Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little?

But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call.

Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan?

* * *
Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning.

Stevie Lancaster.

Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem.

The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble.

But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye.

Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

Oh well, this was the cutest sport agent/athlete romance. Finn and Stevie first met in a less than flattering encounter… Well, Stevie sort of passed out on Finn’s hotel bed and disappeared the next day. Stevie has been feeling out of control and lost since her father passing. She partied and made bad choices to avoid facing the pain and grief. The last person she needs is the “nearly-one-nightstand” gorgeous man to control her every move. Finn was assigned to baby sit Stevie, making sure she stays on track training for the US Open. Finn does not mix business with pleasure – easier said than done especially when you are in each other’s space 24/7 . The chemistry between them is off the charts and it is not easy to turn the switch off just because Finn is now her agent. I would describe their relationship as angsty, slowly becoming enemies to lovers. I enjoyed the awesome banters. I have to say I was nervous at first because Finn is not exactly the golden boy in the previous book, but K. Bromberg gave this hero a beautiful story and the perfect match. At first Finn was a little harsh on Stevie – I think he felt like he owed it to his mentor to keep Stevie safe and out of trouble. Finn is the best at his job and would not fail. Stevie is independent, strong, and has a successful career, so she would not fold easy if Finn was a pushover type of guy. Finn and Stevie needed each other and they truly bring out the best version of themselves together. Overall, Hard to love is a heartfelt, slightly emotional romantic sport romance.

OMG! I can’t even with this book. Saint might be my favorite of this series, maybe tie with Priest. One of the best MM love story I read  I devoured in one day – promise once you start you will not want to stop 😊
Aiden Bell had a successful career until one day he received an anonymous text that changed the course of his life. Aiden left the glamour life to become a monk and never look back. Elijah is Aiden’s older brother best friend and the love of his life… but that was 5 years ago. These two have not spoken or seen each other since Aiden left. One day, Elijah made a surprise visit to see Aiden and delivered the news that he is getting married. This news completely broken Aiden’s heart over all again but he is the one that left right? Elijah wants closure so he can move on with his life, but it is not that easy to forget your first love. Aiden has a trip to visit monasteries all over Europe before he decided to be a priest. Elijah was assigned an assignment writing a piece on Monastery’s brewery for a popular magazine. This was a perfect opportunity for Elijah and Aiden to revisit any unresolved issues in the past and see if there is a second chance at love. Will Aiden choose love or God? Is it possible to have both?
I have to say for a person doesn’t know much about religion, I find this book absolutely fascinating. I love the way the author describes the vivid scenery and the haunting quite life of the monasteries. I enjoy the dialogue and banters. I would describe the relationship as slow burn, emotional, and angsty but there were super steamy scenes in between. The sexual connection is obvious but there are so much more than that. Aiden and Elijah are spiritually connected, and they are truly soulmates. Aiden and Elijah completely stole my heart – adore them both. Saint was beautifully written – steamy, forbidden, emotional second chance romance. Highly recommended!

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

 

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

 

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

 

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

 

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

 

And we all know that I’m no saint.

 

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

RELEASE BLITZ: Hard To Love by K. Bromberg (9/7/2021)

Hard to Love by K. Bromberg is now live!

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, enemies to lovers romance and a hero who redeems himself to steal your heart . . .

He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly.

Finn Sanderson.

Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move.

Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little?

But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call.

Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan?

* * *
Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning.

Stevie Lancaster.

Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem.

The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble.

But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye.

Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

REVIEW TOUR – The Aristocrat by Penelope Ward (9/3/2021)

 

Title: The Aristocrat
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2021
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

 

 

 

Well, this was definitely different. Leo is spending a summer in the states before going back and assumes his duties as an aristocrat. Felicity is also spending the summer with her foster mother before heading to law school. I like the way they first met – it was quite hilarious when Felicity saw Leo for the first time in his birthday suite :). The chemistry was instant, maybe too insta-love :). The two spent a whirlwind romance for the summer knowing that they will have different lives when it ended. They did not want to fall in love, but the heart disagrees. Unfortunately, they parted way with broken hearts. Five years later, Felicity went back to her foster mother’s home to take care of business and received a letter from Leo. He is to be married to someone else. Is it too late for Felicity? Let the journey begin. I like Leo – he is such a nice guy, caring, polite, and fun to be around. His cousin Sig is a hoot – love him! I also like Felicity – she did not have the best childhood but she is sweet, strong, and driven. I enjoy the lighthearted story about the summer they spent together. The second part of them meeting again to HEA I found a bit rushed. Really did not want the story to end :). Otherwise, this was a sweet, fun, heartfelt love story. Loads of chemistry and laughter. Beautifully written. Would love Sig to have a happy ending as well after what he went though 😦
