Sweet Home Louisiana; Boys of the Bayou #2 (Series)
by Erin Nichols (Author)

This review is from: April 30, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

I’m completely in love with Boys of the Bayou! Owen has stolen my heart as my new favorite southern boy. He is just one of the good guys; not only does he have a huge heart, loves his family, his town, but also cares deeply for his woman…sigh.

Madison Allain moved away twelve years ago. She is finally at a point where she wants, no she needs, to sell her portion of the Boys of the Bayou business. She has no idea why her brother, Tommy, left it to her. She hasn’t been back to Louisiana for twelve years. Well, except for the brief time to bury her brother, but that really doesn’t count. Now she has to spend thirty days in the very place that seems to bring out her crazy. She isn’t sure she is ready for it. She also isn’t sure the Landry family is ready for it, especially Owen. He has a knack of bringing out her special kind of crazy. The next thirty days will be torture.

Owen Landry is typically a laid back guy, but when it comes to Maddie Allain something crazy stirs in his blood. He hasn’t seen her for twelve years and knowing that she now has to spend the next thirty days working at the business that makes his family proud, brings in their income, and is something he loves makes him just a little crazy. Is it a good crazy, he isn’t sure yet, but he is itching to find out. He always did enjoy being around Maddie in all her full glory crazy. The next thirty days should be fun.

2019 Goals – Monthly Author Feature – Amy Andrews

2019 Goals. A new quarter and I’m really excited to admit that I’ve reached another goal. Not because I don’t read a lot and didn’t want to to achieve success, but honestly like many people who set goals, or the dreaded “R” word, I tend to usually forget about them, sort of like my exercise plan. So instead of talking about my sorry excuse of an exercise goal, let’s slap another gold star on my 2019 goal!

If you’ve missed the past few months, where I not only launched into my journey of 2019 goals, but also highlighted other amazing authors, please check them out by clicking on the links below.

Now—Welcome to April!!

April introduced me to several new authors, but in the end there was something about Amy Andrews and the coming home feeling that drew me in while reading Nothing But Trouble. Her writing held humor, a slow burn, and the small town feel that held a special appeal for my appetite this spring. Nothing But Trouble is the first book in a new series of Credence, CO. I look forward to returning and reading about everyone I met along the way in her new series and I hope you enjoy Amy Andrews as much as I have.

Amy Andrews – and Nothing But Trouble

“You can never go wrong with an Amy Andrews novel, of that I am positive. She brings to the table in a style all her own, the perfect mix of humor, romance, and realistic characters” — Melyssa Winchester, author of Count on Me
Charming and fun with a whole slew of quirky, engaging characters.” — What’s Better Than Books?
I’m completely in love with Credence, Co and everyone who lives in this small townNothing But Trouble is filled with everything I adore about small town romances.” Read the rest of Kay’s Review: Nothing But Trouble

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Nothing But Trouble, an all-new small town romance from USA Today bestselling author Amy Andrews, is available April 30th! 
________________

For five years, Cecilia Morgan’s entire existence has revolved around playing personal assistant to self-centered former NFL quarterback Wade Carter. But just when she finally gives her notice, his father’s health fails, and Wade whisks her back to his hometown. CC will stay for his dad–for now–even if that means ignoring how sexy her boss is starting to look in his Wranglers.

To say CC’s notice is a bombshell is an insult to bombs. Wade can’t imagine his life without his “left tackle.” She’s the only person who can tell him “no” and strangely, it’s his favorite quality. He’ll do anything to keep her from leaving, even if it means playing dirty and dragging her back to Credence, Colorado, with him.

But now they’re living under the same roof, getting involved in small-town politics,and bickering like an old married couple. Suddenly, five years of fighting is starting to feel a whole lot like foreplay. What’s a quarterback to do when he realizes he might be falling for his “left tackle”? Throw a Hail Mary she’ll never see coming, of course.

Blog Tour – Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen

PR - BT banner.jpg

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

Excerpt:

“I don’t want you transferring into my school,” I hiss out. Melody would gladly file a transfer request, and Principal Prichard would salivate over the chance to snatch him up for our football team.

“That won’t be a problem. You guys suck so much ass, you have shit-breath.”

“Still smells better than poverty. You’re poor, right? Your sister was just bullshitting about being rich.”

When someone hits me with a stick, I run over them with a tank. I’m so mean to him I want to throw up. I hate this part of being me. The striking harder at all costs part.

“Just to make things clear.” I put the brush down, batting my lashes. “You’re not my step-sibling, foster brother, or a part of the family. You’re a stray dog. Last of the litter, most unlikely to be adopted, and a charity case.”

Penn takes a step toward me, and my heart is fighting its way out of my ribcage. The closer he gets, the more I realize that my heart might succeed. Penn’s eyes remind me of a snake’s. Mesmerizing, but inhuman altogether. They weren’t like that before.

His scent messes with my head. I want to reach out and caress his face. Kiss his wounds better. Beg for forgiveness. Curse him. Push him away. Cry on his shoulder for what we’ve done. For how it ended. For what we became afterwards, because I’m full of crap and he is totally empty.

We ruined ourselves the day of our first kiss.

Penn looks down at me. Time stops. It feels like the world is losing gravity, falling into a bottomless depth in space when he clasps my chin with his thumb and finger, lifting my head up. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure I want to, either. My towel drops to the floor with a thud, even though I secured it over my chest. I realize that he tugged at it intentionally. I’m naked. My body, my soul, my heart. All my walls are down. Somewhere in my head, a red alarm blasts and my inhibitions are getting armed, ready to fight back. I’m trying to decode his expression. He is amused, irritated, and…playful? The mixture of emotions doesn’t make any sense.

“Mess with me, Followhill, and I will ruin you.”

“Not if I ruin you first.”

New Release – More Than Tempt You by Shayla Black

MTTY - RB banner.jpg

More Than Tempt You, an all-new, sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Shayla Black is available now!

05 MTTY eCover highres.jpg

I romanced her for revenge…but what if she’s not the enemy after all?

I’m Clint Holmes. I was an ambitious guy with a busy life and a growing business. Sure North Dakota wasn’t a tropical paradise, but I was happy enough—until tragedy struck. Now the only thing that matters is finding the person responsible and making her pay. But Bethany Banks is a Harvard-educated shark used to swallowing her enemies whole while playing dangerous corporate games. How can a blue-collar oil man like me possibly beat her?

The moment I lay eyes on my beautiful nemesis, the answer is obvious. I seduce her.

On Maui, where she’s fled, I get to know the man-eater who caused my family so much pain…only to find she’s not the brazen ballbuster I assumed. She’s skittish, secretive, vulnerable. For some reason, my instinct is to protect her. I can’t abandon my plan…but I can’t stop wanting her. Night after night, I pry her open with my touch until I’m drowning in our passion. Soon, I’m questioning everything, especially the fine line between love and hate. But when the past comes back to wreak vengeance and the truth explodes, can I prove that I’m more than tempted to love her forever?

Blog Tour – Rescuing Macie by Susan Stoker

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Stoker, comes RESCUING MACIE, a passionate and thrilling novella from the Delta Force Heroes Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy today!

About RESCUING MACIE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Stoker comes a new story in her Delta Force Heroes series…

After years of estrangement, Mercedes Laughlin has finally reconciled with her older brother. It should be the happiest time of her life, getting to know Truck and his new wife…and it would be, if an ex wasn’t causing her trouble. Add in Truck’s boss, Colonel Colton Robinson, an amazingly distracting man whom she met under embarrassing circumstances, and Macie’s got a bit more on her plate than she can handle.

From the moment they met, Colt was fascinated by Macie, and helping her through an anxiety attack at her brother’s wedding didn’t diminish the appeal. He’d do his best to sweep her off her feet, if not for a little voice telling him to tread lightly—until a frantic phone call changes the plan. Macie’s being targeted, and Colt’s determined to keep her safe while he and her brother eliminate the threat.

Colt isn’t about to let his friend lose his sister again so soon…or miss his own chance at a happy ending with Macie before they’ve barely had a beginning.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

EXCERPT:

He sat Macie gently on the counter in her bathroom. He leaned close and placed his hands on the cool tiles next to her hips and waited for her to open her eyes. It took several moments, but when she finally brought her beautiful brown eyes up to his, he wasn’t prepared for the jolt of electricity he felt.

Bringing one hand to her cheek, he was encouraged when she tilted her head and rested it on his palm. “You okay?” he asked softly.

She nodded and said, “No.”

He smiled at the contradiction. But he had a feeling she was being completely honest. “Where is your first-aid stuff?”

She lifted her head and gestured to a cabinet behind him.

Colt got to work getting the Band-Aids and hydrogen peroxide ready. When he turned around again, he had to take a deep breath. He’d purposely kept his mind off the fact that she was wearing only a tank top and a pair of short-shorts. But she’d dropped the blanket, and he couldn’t stop his eyes from tracking from her feet up her long legs to her curvy thighs. Her belly wasn’t flat, but she wasn’t overweight either. And her tits were lush and full. Even as he stared at her, he saw her nipples tighten under the cotton.

He finally looked up and saw she was examining him just as openly. Waiting until her gaze had traveled the length of his body, he finally said, “Let’s get you cleaned up so we can get out of here.”

She blushed when she looked up at him, but nodded.

Turning his thoughts away from how sexy he found her—but loving that she seemed to be just as interested in checking him out as he was her—Colt concentrated on cleaning the scrapes on her body. He put the bottle down on the counter and picked up one of her hands. The palm was scraped and red, and he hated knowing it was because she’d leapt out her fucking window into a tree. He hated every single bruise and mark on her smooth skin. Throughout his ministrations, she didn’t cry and didn’t make a sound. He knew he had to be hurting her, but she was stoic and calm as he tended to her wounds.

When he was finally satisfied that he’d cleaned the worst of her scratches, he helped her stand and wrapped the blanket back around her shoulders. “You need help packing?”

She considered his offer for a second, then shook her head. “How long will I be staying with you?”

Forever was on the tip of his tongue, but he held back the word, knowing it would stress her out…and that it was crazy.

New Release – Nothing But Trouble by Amy Andrews

NBT - RB banner.jpg

“It’s got a Jill Shalvis/SEP vibe and I had a smile on my face all the way through. Loved every minute.” – Kate Meader, USA Today bestselling author

Nothing But Trouble, an all-new small town romance from USA Today bestselling author Amy Andrews, is available now!

Nothing But Trouble_1600.jpg

For five years, PA Cecilia Morgan’s entire existence has revolved around playing “left tackle” to former NFL quarterback Wade Carter. She’s so good at her job, the man can’t even buy his own condoms! Well, today she’s giving the Worst-Boss-Ever her notice.

To say CC’s announcement was a bombshell is an insult to bombs. And horribly timed, with his publisher breathing down his neck. Not too many things defy Wade Carter. Well…except his mother. His PA. And the blinking cursor of doom.

Time to call an audible.

CC is gobsmacked. Three months in his small hometown—somewhere devoid of “female distractions,” he says—while he finishes his book, and he’ll cut her loose?! And he thinks a cowboy hat and dimpled smile and she’ll just say yes? Penalty flag.

Wade can’t believe CC and the council arranged busloads of single women to visit their dying town. She never gives up. But three Super Bowl rings prove he’s no quitter, either.

But then their fighting starts to feel a whole lot like foreplay. What’s a quarterback to do when he realizes he might be falling for his left tackle?

Time to throw a Hail Mary.

New Release – Fluffy by Julia Kent

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Fluffy
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019

BLURB

An all-new STANDALONE from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent

It all started with the wrong Help Wanted ad. Of course it did.
I’m a professional fluffer. It’s NOT what you think. I stage homes for a living. Real estate agents love me, and my work stands on its own merits.
Sigh. Get your mind out of the gutter. Go ahead. Laugh. I’ll wait.
See? That’s the problem. My career has used the term “fluffer” for decades. I didn’t even know there was a more… lascivious definition of the term.
Until it was too late.
The ad for a “professional fluffer” on Craigslist seemed like divine intervention. My last unemployment check was in the bank. I was desperate. Rent was due. The ad said cash paid at the end of the day.
The perfect job!
Staging homes means showing your best angle. The same principle applies in making a certain kind of movie. Turns out a “fluffer” doesn’t arrange decorative pillows on a couch.
They arrange other soft, round-ish objects.
The job isn’t hard. Er, I mean, it is — it’s about being hard. Or, well… helping other people to be hard.
Oh, man…
And that’s the other problem. A man. No, not one of the stars on the movie set. Will Lotham – my high school crush. The owner of the house where we’re filming. Illegally. In a vacation rental.
By the time the cops show up, what I thought was just a great house staging gig turned into a nightmare involving pictures of me with a naked star, Will rescuing me from an arrest, and a humiliating lesson in my own naivete.
My job turned out to be so much harder than I expected. But you know what’s easier than I ever imagined?
Having all my dreams come true.

Read Kay’s Review: Fluffy

EXCERPT“I can’t tonight. I have a date,” I blurt out, remembering David. The dating app. The asshole who isn’t an asshole.

Yet. I haven’t met him, so that judgment remains withheld.

“A date?” Will asks, intrigued.

“Yes. A date. You know, that thing where you go out with someone who has no intention of really getting to know you and you spend the entire time eating bread that doesn’t taste as good as your date claims and trying to decide whether to initiate rescue-text sequences with your mom.”

“That’s your idea of a date?”

“That is my actual experience of every date I’ve had since college.”

“You’re dating the wrong guys.” He holds my gaze for just a little too long. I look away.

“I have to keep fishing in the pond if I ever want to catch a different one.”

“If that’s the way you talk to your dates, I am beginning to understand why they all turn out so badly.”

“Hey!”

“What?”

“Don’t accuse me of being a bad date. I’m a great date! I Google the guy in advance and read his LinkedIn profile. I make sure I don’t wear super-tall heels in case he lied about his height on his dating profile. I pretend to care about all his hobbies and don’t reveal that I’m secretly tallying all the micro-aggressions he’s sending my way during appetizers and wine. And if he makes it to dessert, well–” I falter.

“You never make it to dessert, do you?” Will asks, eyebrows up. He drops them quickly, wincing.

“I–well–it’s not that I don’t. He doesn’t!”

“He ditches you?”

“No! No! It’s just that he always has a thing.”

“A thing?”

“A work emergency. Or a dog with a twisted bowel. Or a grandma in the ER.”

“How many guys used the twisted-canine-intestine thing?”

“Three.” I sit down and sag against his teenage desk, elbows sliding forward, fingers deep in my hair. “I looked it up. There’s an entire subreddit devoted to inventive ways to get out of a bad date.”

“And yet here you are.” He leans against the edge of his desk. “Trying again.”

“I’m a masochist.”

His eyes gleam. “Maybe you should start your dates with that line. ‘Hi. I’m Mallory Monahan. I’m a masochist.’ You’d definitely make it to dessert.”

New Release – Claiming Tuesday By Riley Edwards

Title: Claiming Tuesday (The Next Generation, #4)
Author: Riley Edwards
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 30th
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Tuesday Knowls is done. Once burned, twice shy. Twice burned? Game over. On the outside Tuesday has it all. She comes from money, she’s a beautiful runway model, her smile comes easy, and she’s quick to laugh. But looks can be deceiving. Inside, she’s lost and lonely. So when the smokin’ hot firefighter swoops in with his sweet talk and promises, she decides to be the one who uses, for once.

Jackson Clark is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Tuesday. He sees past the beautiful façade she shows the world straight to the pain she hides. When Tuesday offers him a friends with benefits arrangement—minus the friendship—he has no choice but to accept her offer. He’s willing to do anything to get close to the elusive woman and show her he’s worth the risk.

When Tuesday starts getting presents from a secret admirer, she goes into a tailspin. She’s been down this ugly road before and she knows how it can destroy her life.

Can she really trust that Jackson is the good guy in this mess? And, if he is, will she realize in time that not only will he protect her heart, but he might just save her life?

Cover Reveal – Making Up by Helena Hunting

Making Up, an all-new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy standalone from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is coming July 16th, and we have the smoking hot cover!

Making Up_ebook.jpg

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

New Release – Viking’s Claim by Madison Faye

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Viking’s Claim
Series: Kilts & Kisses #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Wildly historically inaccurate 
Highlander historical romance
Release Date: April 29, 2019

BLURB

Never kiss the devil. Not even if he’s sinfully gorgeous. Or impossible to resist.
And certainly not when he’s got you tied and bound, and completely at his mercy.
Uh oh.

thought I had it bad when I was on my way to be married off to some weasley little lord to appease my family. But that’s before I’m taken by the most fearsome, vicious, alpha Viking to sail the seas.

Tor Odinson is a beast of a man. A savage. A bloodthirsty warrior and ravager. Huge, growly, dominant…and completely and utterly beautiful. I’m supposed to fear him, not want him. I’m supposed to resist him, not crave him.

…Yeah, whoops.

Because once he throws me over his shoulder, and lays his hands on me, and ties me to bed, and makes me feel things I’ve never even dreamed of, I know “what I’m supposed to do” is the last thing I’ll be doing when it comes to Tor.

I know it’s wrong to desire a man like him. But if this is a sin, I’m already damned.

I fell for the devil, and now I want it all.

Completely over the top, growly af, tropes for DAYS, and wildly historically inaccurate. As in, if you’re a history major, I’m so, so sorry. Warning: not responsible for lost or ripped bodices. Reader beware.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

They call him the merchant of death.
I call him the devil.

After I met Jackson Bale, I never forgot the commanding man who was so devastatingly handsome yet equally vicious. Even though he doesn’t remember me at all, that one chance encounter changed my life.

However, when I make one mistake, he cages me. I’m dragged into the illicit underworld of Noir, where ruthless Jackson reigns supreme. Where he tries to break me.

Jackson thrives on playing sensual games with his opponents. On being in control.    And he terrifies me, even as he draws me in.

The same secrets that will save me.

What starts as a kidnapping gone wrong turns into a sordid love affair that may destroy our lives forever.

New Release – PRETTY RECKLESS by L.J. Shen

PR - RB banner.jpg

Pretty Reckless, an all-new standalone high school, bully romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM.jpg

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

Rule number one for a professional matchmaker?

Don’t fall in love with your client.

But the more time I spend attempting to find the perfect girl, the more I realize how much I want him for my own. What’s the harm if we give in for just one night?

I should have known that would never be enough.

We were an imperfect match from the start, but I don’t know how to let him go.

Two and a half years ago, we made a plan—had our life all mapped out—knew where we were going and how we were getting there.

But life had other plans for us.

Now, rodeo has become Chase’s primary focus, and he leaves our girls and me home while he follows his dreams week in, and week out.

We’ve lost so much already. I’m afraid if he doesn’t come back to us soon, resentment will set in and our marriage will fail.

AUTHOR BIO

I was born and raised about twenty minutes north of Denver, Colorado where school and soccer were always my primary focus growing up. Though, I read and wrote as often as humanly possible, too. I’ve always loved doing both, and my love for words has only grown since my childhood.

I stayed local for college and majored in Biology, with every intention of going to medical school. That never panned out. I realized right before I took the MCAT that what I wanted most out of life was to have a family of my own one day, and to be able to write a book. It was then that I decided that being a doctor wouldn’t have left much time to accomplish either of those things.

Since then, I’ve done child care, and tried to figure out where to go next, while also finally working on my own stories that I can share with the world.

And I hope that the amazing people that give me a chance fall as in love with my characters as I have.

Review – Collision at Roosevelt Ranch by Elise Faber

43896834. sy475

Collision at Roosevelt Ranch; Roosevelt Ranch #3 (Series)
by Elise Faber (Author)

This review is from: April 28, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

There is something about a small town romance that I love so much and Collision offered up all the small town feels.

This is the first book I’ve read by Elise Faber, which means this is also the first book in the Roosevelt Ranch series I’ve read as well. I had no problem reading this as a standalone, but I also look forward to reading more from Elise and meeting more characters from this series.

Haley thought she was going to die the night a deer jumped in front of her car. The SUV following behind her didn’t have quite enough time to stop before slamming into her car, but given the remote location of her house it was lucky for Haley that Sam was there to call in help. Or perhaps unlucky given that it was Sam that collided with her car?

Hum…

Haley definately considers it unlucky when it is Sam who peers into her drivers side window after being struck. She would have prefered death by deer than having her high school crush see her wounded along the side of the road.

Sam feels awful for causing the wreck. Technically it was a deer, but Haley has a broken ankle, a concussion, and she lives alone. Not the best case to take care of oneself. He refuses to leave until she’s better, no matter how stubborn she’s being in taking his help.

He may never have noticed her when she was a tag-a-long years ago, but he can’t help but notice her now that she’s all grown up. He’s only there to help her get back on her feet, but something else is pulling at him to make him stay.

Can the past, living in a small town, ever be erased? Could Haley and Sam ever start something new?

Image may contain: 1 person, text and closeup

Review – No Feelings Involved by Siobhan Davis

45890122. sy475

No Feelings Involved (Standalone)
by Siobhan Davis (Author)

This review is from: April 26, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

No Feelings Involved was WHOA, WOW, so dang good!!

Super sexy, but filled with all the right emotions to keep the pages turning and keeping me up way past my bedtime, rising early, and reading through every possible non-working moment of the day because this book was  soooooo delectable.

Summer Peterson is starting college in the fall. Growing up under the watchful eye of very protective brothers who barely gave her a chance to breathe. Summer takes the chance while visiting her college over the summer to finally lose her virginity. Never once did she expect the one night stand, that thankfully led to not exchanging her name, to become her roommate when she begins classes in the fall. This should be an interesting year living with the man who took her virginity and her overly protective brother.

Ryan James never expected to see Summer again. She was a beautiful memory, that although kept playing on repeat in his mind, wasn’t supposed to show up on his doorstep a month later, much less be the kid sister of his best friend and business partner, Austin. Ryan isn’t about to throw away everything he’s worked for for a one night stand, even if he hasn’t stopped thinking about her. Ryan just isn’t a long term kind of guy, not to mention Austin would kill him if he ever found out he’d touched his sister. It won’t happen again, his job and his friend mean more than any woman.

As the school year kicks off and Summer’s electric personality attracts everyone to her side, it’s easy to see why her brothers worked so hard to keep her in a bubble. Ryan has a hard time keeping away from her himself, even when he knows he is the last person who should get pulled in by her magnetism. He doesn’t do feelings, but somehow he can’t seem to stay away. As much as he wants to let Summer be with someone else, he can’t let go of whatever pull he’s feeling towards her.

Summer wants to experience everything college has to offer and that means not getting tied down to anyone in particular. The last thing she needs is complications, however, she can’t seem to keep her mind off of one sexy roommate. When Ryan seems to have the same trouble, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Offer him an agreement; No feelings involved, but they should be able to enjoy the benefits of living together, right? She needs an education and he’s just the right man for the job.  Everything should be simple, but sometimes life doesn’t exactly work out the way you want it to.

Ryan and Summer’s push and pull is electric, steamy and completely off the charts! But, some of the best moments in No Feelings Involved are when they visit Ryan’s family and his nephew instantly falls in love with Summer. If you’ve read Siobhan’s other books you’ll love the catch up with past characters and the interaction will make you smile so hard. Billy, his nephew, completely steals the show and if you haven’t fallen in love with Ryan by this point…..oh sigh….he’s such an amazing book boyfriend. I’ve loved Siobhan books before, but No Feelings Involved might be topping them all for the #1 spot.

Cover Reveal – Unsteady in Love by Harlow Layne

COVER REVEAL
Title: Unsteady in Love
Series: Fairlane #4
Author: Harlow Layne
Genre: Contemporary/Military Romance
Cover Design: Harlow Layne
Release Date: May 10, 2019

BLURB

Everything I ever thought I knew about him, everything I thought he wanted was a lie.

Imagine one day calling your boyfriend, the love of your life, the man you planned to marry and have kids with only to find out his phone has been disconnected, and he’s joined the military.

How could someone love you if they ran away?

That was four years ago when he shattered my heart into a million pieces and today I find that same man on my doorstep… pleading for forgiveness and my hand in marriage.

Our relationship isn’t what I dreamt it would be. The only way to see it through is to keeping the past pain buried and protecting my heart. It shouldn’t be hard when he’s half a world away, but when tragedy strikes causing Holden to come back to me half the man he was when he left…

I must decide if he’s worth giving a second chance. With a past as checkered as ours, I’m not sure love will ever exist again.

Unsteady in Love is a stand-alone in the Fairlane series. The series has crossover characters from each novel. It is not required to read the books in order but it is recommended to enhance the reading experience.

Cover Reveal – Remember Me by Nelle L’Amour

COVER REVEAL
Title: Remember Me
Author: Nelle L’Amour
Genre: Steamy Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Arijana Karčić
Release Date: May 30, 2019

BLURB

From USA Today bestseller Nelle L’Amour, a steamy and suspenseful ripped from the headlines second chance romance that will have you gasping for air.
Skye:
It was love at first sight with Finn. The downtown bad boy with the piercing blue eyes, tattooed biceps, and museum-worthy chiseled body. But while he struggled, I was driven. An investigative reporter determined to pursue the truth to get my story. My credo: Dig deep, then dig deeper. Then one time, I dug too deep and literally dug my own grave, losing everything and everyone dear to me.
Until life gave me a second chance.
Finn:
Being a renowned artist and single dad isn’t easy. My demanding fiancée doesn’t help. No matter how much I try, she wants nothing to do with my precious five-year-old daughter.
Then she came along. The hot as sin teacher. Scarlet Callahan. She’s everything my fiancée isn’t. Warm, funny, and down-to-earth, she loves my daughter as much as my daughter loves her. I’m inexplicably attracted to her, but she keeps her distance. Like she’s hiding something. Except I’m going to uncover her secret even if it means risking everything I’ve ever wanted.
And everyone I’ve ever loved.

EXCERPT 

One hour later, we’re in Brooklyn, at Finn’s painting-filled loft, butt-naked on his one piece of furniture— a micro-suede futon that’s sprawled out on the butcher-block floor. Our bodies are entwined, a mad tangle of arms, legs, and tongues that can’t get enough of one another. Touching, sucking, licking, tasting. Exploring each other as if we’re two conquerors discovering new lands. Springsteen’s “She’s the One” plays on his sound system.
So in the moment, my very skilled, generous, rough around the edges lover brings me to places I’ve never known before. In positions I’ve only read about. Giving me one outrageous orgasm after another. Each one more mind-blowing than the one before. Making me forget about what happened at Christie’s. And my now expired V-Card.
We spend the entire night fucking our brains out. Opening our hearts. Bearing our souls. We’re bathed in each other’s scents, twined in each other’s limbs, wrapped in each other’s dreams. I tell him about my nomadic, magical childhood, traveling across the globe while my parents filmed award-winning documentaries. And then about their untimely, tragic death. The Cliff Notesversion of my education. Followed by my dreams and aspirations.
My past seems happily ever after Finn shares his. I learn he’s a product of the system. The son of a crack whore mother who abandoned him at birth, leaving him alone to drift from one foster family to another. A talented artist from an early age, he turned to painting as a means to both escape his hardships and express himself. It was the only constant in his ever changing, challenging life. His passion when love was nowhere to be had. Two years older than me—twenty-five— he tells me he won a full scholarship to the prestigious Pratt Institute, from which he graduated.
“What were you doing at Christie’s?” I ask, during a reprieve from our reckless sex, my head resting on his chiseled chest, his arm wrapped round me.
“Networking with collectors and dealers, hoping to jumpstart my painting career. What about you?”
“After my depressing job interview at NBC, I impulsively went inside just to warm up and get a drink.”
A chance encounter.
He affectionately flicks my nose. “They should have hired you.”
“One of your paintings should have been hanging at Christie’s.”
We exchange a laugh before…
We fuck again and again. Everywhere. Every which way. In his bed… on the kitchen counter…against the walls…in the shower. No part of his loft is left unmarked.

***

Last night, it was lust.
By morning, it’s love.
One day later, I get a life-changing phone call. A job offer from Conquest Broadcasting in Los Angeles to become an associate producer in their news department.
That night after a celebratory session of delicious lovemaking, my naked, beautiful Finn rolls off the futon and stands up.
“Now, I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse.”
I laugh at him, appreciating his valiant attempt to sound like Marlon Brando in The Godfather. “What?”
“It’s a surprise. Close your eyes.”
I do as he asks. A few moments later, a ticklish, wet sensation brushes across my abdomen.
I squirm. “What are you doing, Finn?” It lasts less than thirty seconds.
“Baby, sit up and open your eyes. I hoist myself up to an upright position. Finn’s sitting cross-legged next to me, holding a paintbrush, the bristles coated in a shimmer of red. He flashes a cocky smile.
I look down. My eyes grow wide as I silently read the two words he’s painted on my torso.

Marry me.

Two weeks later, we exchange our forever vows at a chapel in Las Vegas en route to Los Angeles.
The city of angels.
The city of dreams.

Aria Amherst lied about her age the first night we met.
But when I kissed her… I knew exactly how old she was.

Then I wanted her more.

It’s… complicated.
But take my word on this. He’s worth every risk I’m taking.

Cover Reveal – Viking’s Claim by Madison Faye

COVER REVEAL
Title: Viking’s Claim
Series: Kilts & Kisses #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Wildly historically inaccurate 
Highlander historical romance
Cover Design: Coverlüv
Photo: Wander Aguiar
Model: Alex C.
Release Date: April 29, 2019

BLURB

Never kiss the devil. Not even if he’s sinfully gorgeous. Or impossible to resist.
And certainly not when he’s got you tied and bound, and completely at his mercy.
Uh oh.

thought I had it bad when I was on my way to be married off to some weasley little lord to appease my family. But that’s before I’m taken by the most fearsome, vicious, alpha Viking to sail the seas.

Tor Odinson is a beast of a man. A savage. A bloodthirsty warrior and ravager. Huge, growly, dominant…and completely and utterly beautiful. I’m supposed to fear him, not want him. I’m supposed to resist him, not crave him.

…Yeah, whoops.

Because once he throws me over his shoulder, and lays his hands on me, and ties me to bed, and makes me feel things I’ve never even dreamed of, I know “what I’m supposed to do” is the last thing I’ll be doing when it comes to Tor.

I know it’s wrong to desire a man like him. But if this is a sin, I’m already damned.

I fell for the devil, and now I want it all.

Completely over the top, growly af, tropes for DAYS, and wildly historically inaccurate. As in, if you’re a history major, I’m so, so sorry. Warning: not responsible for lost or ripped bodices. Reader beware.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Desperately Seeking Roommate
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 26, 2019

BLURB

WANTED: A ROOMMATE
Requirements
1.     Don’t be a smoker. That’s gross.
2.     Don’t be a jerk. I have no time to deal with your mood swings.
3.     Clean up after yourself. Is it really so hard to put dirty clothes where they belong?
If you meet these qualifications, call me.
Sincerely,
Desperately Seeking Roommate

When I put the ad in my university’s newspaper, the last thing I ever expect is for the star football player to respond.
From what I know of him, Abel Russo is a womanizer and an absolute jerk.
Sadly, he’s the only thing stopping me from being evicted by my annoyingly gleeful landlord.
It should be easy enough—there’s no chance we’ll fall for each other. But then he gives me lingering looks, and I might just be looking back.
All I wanted was a roommate, but I’m about to get so much more than I bargained for.

EXCERPT 

Abel’s lips turn up but he doesn’t take his eyes off the road. “Like what you see, Blondie?”
My cheeks redden at being caught, but I stick my chin haughtily into the air unwilling to cower at being called out. “Maybe there’s a bug on your face.”
That smile of his widens. “There’s not.”
“So confident,” I mutter, crossing my arms over my chest and staring out the windshield.
“Why wouldn’t I be? You kissed me.”
“I kissed you back, big difference.” I kick my flip-flops off and rest my bare feet on the dashboard.
“Kissing back is still kissing.”
“Ugh,” I toss my hands up, “you’re impossible.”
“Impossibly handsome? Charming? Irresistible? All three? Definitely all three.” He answers his own question.

AUTHOR BIO

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Skater Boy
Series: Patchwork House #1
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Young Adult/Sport Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2019

BLURB

Rebels. Misfits. Bad boys who rule the streets. Everyone’s welcome at the worst kept secret in town, just as long as you don’t mind getting your reputation—and your heart—a little dirty.

Welcome to Patchwork House…

Patchwork House is a boy’s club—a mean boy’s club. They made an exception for Tweetie once, and they’re going to make another, because she’s coming home. After two years away and one too many broken hearts, Tweetie swore off skaters—but she never expected Flip.

Flip was the most famous skater in the world until he traded his place at Patchwork with the little girl whose life he ruined. Now Tweetie’s all grown up, and one chance encounter brings them together. He knows the right thing to do is disappear before things get ugly, but he never was very good at being good.

She’s back, and so is he—all bets are off. Nothing will stop this bad boy from finally getting his lost girl. They’re written in the stars, and it’s time she knows it.

The first lesson Flip taught Tweetie was how to fall.
It was also the last thing she remembered when they met again, because she didn’t just fall for him.
She slammed.

EXCERPT 

“I’m so bad for you. If I was a good guy, I’d stop. I’d let you be happy.”
I didn’t understand any of what he was saying, but the pain I felt. Deep. In his rocky, strangled voice and his desperate, cracking eyes.
“Whatever it is I’ll understand. If you did something…if something happened…I’ll understand.”
Tell me. Please.
Let me in.
His stare dug into me, and again I was certain he was searching for something. I desperately wanted him to find it.
He exhaled, resigned.
“I’m not a good guy. I’m the fucking worst.” He captured my face in his palms, grip sure and almost painful in its desperation. The way he looked at me, I was sure he would kiss me. The way I felt, I was certain I would let him.
But then, with slow and almost agonizing determination, his lips came to my forehead.
I was frozen. Mute. Struck dumb. Everything stopped working all I knew was his lips on my skin. Soft and so tender, a complete contrast to his grip digging into my skull.
He pulled back, pressed his forehead to mine, and looked at me from beneath hooded lids.
“I’m going to put the awe back in your eyes,” he said, and my breath caught. “You looked at me like I was a god once, and you’ll do it again.”

New Release – Out of the Red by Arell Rivers

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Out of the Red
Series: Hunte Family #1 
Author: Arell Rivers
Genre: Contemporary Rockstar Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2019

BLURB

One impassioned argument.
One dominating kiss.
One unexpected moment that turns everything upside down.
And that’s only the opening act.

Rockstar Braxton Hunte is the type of chaos that makes your soul burn…

Brax has been on tour for a decade, and some may say he swallows obstacles for fun. Well, maybe he does—he’s never encountered a riff he couldn’t handle, a treasure he couldn’t score, or a woman he couldn’t conquer. No one, especially not a buttoned-down rule-follower like the band’s new tour accountant, is going to change him.

Accountant Sara Anderson is an unabashed stickler for the rules…

Sara’s worked nine long years to make partner, and only one thing stands between her and her goal—Hunte. Now she’s going on their tour to whip the band into financial shape. So long as she gets them out of the red, the promotion will be hers. Those bad boys of rock will be tamed, no matter how yummy their lead singer is.

When rebellion confronts discipline, fireworks explode.

Passions collide, and lives are permanently altered, in this enemies-to-lovers, slow burn standalone romance set in the mid-1990s—when grunge ruled the airwaves and women partners were as uncommon as those new mobile phones.

EXCERPT 

“Okay, enough babbling about me. What’s up in your life?”
I fill her in about Hunte and my brilliant strategy to bring them to heel.
“Oh my gosh, Sara, Hunte is to die for! You are so lucky.”
I know what she’s talking about, and feign ignorance. “It’s work, not play.” I pause. “So can I count on you to watch over my plants if I have to stay away longer than a week?”
“Sure.”
“I’ll drop off the instructions, plus a copy of my itinerary in case you need to reach me, in your mailbox on my way to the airport.”
“Sounds good.” She giggles. “Geez, we both wouldn’t kick Braxton Hunte out of bed for eating crackers. Of course, that was before I got married. So now, it’s all on you.”
Even if I used to agree with her, my promotion rests on them now. I open the hall closet and grab a roll of toilet paper, filling up the holder in the guest bathroom. “Joanna, I’m going to be their tour accountant, not their groupie. No one from A&L has ever joined them on tour. I’m convinced that if I spend a week or two with them, I’ll sort out their crazy spendthrift ways. The partners will have no choice but to invite me into their ranks.”
When I finish, she’s silent for a long pause. “Hunte’s been around for years now…”
Having restored perfect order to my house, I collapse onto my sectional sofa. I kick my legs up on the soft fabric and lean back against the headrest. “Eight years.”
“Have they ever been in the black?”
I place my left foot on my right knee. “Yes. Their first couple of years were good. If they didn’t spend like drunken sailors—or rockstars—they would’ve been profitable every year.”
“Isn’t that what rockstars do? I mean, don’t they just spend as much as they make?”
“I don’t know, Joanna. I’ve never met one.”
A giggle floats through my handset. “Well, seems to me that you’re going to be meeting a few. Tomorrow.”
Rats. I thought I had successfully diverted her thoughts. I switch up my legs so that my right foot now rests on my left knee. “Whatever. They’re just a job.”
Full-blown laughter assails my ears. “Oh, honey, don’t try to pull that crap with me. Braxton Hunte is all that and a bag of chips. And he’s a free agent now, since he got divorced. With a son who’s his spitting image, which we both know only ups his appeal. I’m impressed—you’ve figured out a way to be with him. Brava.”
Both my legs crash down onto my sectional and a scowl crosses my face. “First, this client—emphasis on client, Joanna—is going to make me partner. Second, Hunte is a rock band, not a ‘he.’ Third, I enjoy their music, but I certainly do not have a crush on them.”
More laughter ensues. “Sure. You keep telling yourself that. When you’re face to face with Braxton Hunte, remember my words. All your tingly bits are going to be singing his song.”

For as long as Arell Rivers can remember, she has been lost in a book. During her senior year in college, she picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was hooked on romance.

Arell started writing her first novel because the characters were screaming at her to do so. The story started coming out in her dreams and attacking her in the shower, so she took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Arell has what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to discovering her passion for writing romance, she practiced law, was a wedding and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. Arell lives with a very supportive husband and two mischievous cats. When not in her writing cave, Arell is found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or hitting the beach.

Arell is a PAN member (Published Author Network) of the New Jersey chapter of Romance Writers of America.

New Release – The Perfect First by Maya Hughes


Title: The Perfect First

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: April 25, 2019

 

“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”

 

Cue the record scratching, what?!

 

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.

 

I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

 

I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time.

 

Drinking at a bar. Check.

 

Partying all night. Double check.

 

Skinny dipping. Triple check.

 

She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.

 

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

Author Bio

Maya Hughes can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan.

Cover Reveal – HOT UNDER THE COLLAR by Roxanne St. Claire

New York Times bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire is kicking off a brand new series and we couldn’t be more excited about it! Check out the cover for HOT UNDER THE COLLAR and be on the lookout for it soon!

About HOT UNDER THE COLLAR

Firefighter Braden Mahoney is devastated when his beloved Weimaraner, Jelly Bean, fails the canine arson investigator test. Faced with the challenge of raising the money for advanced training, it’s Braden’s sweet grandmother and her best friend who suggest he use the services of the new event planner in town. Not that he needs a push in Cassie Santorini’s direction. Ever since she arrived, Braden has had his eye on the sassy Greek goddess…and can’t stop thinking about getting the rest of him on her, too.

Cassie has spent years putting family first, even moving to Bitter Bark when her mother falls in love with the local veterinarian. Having a huge new extended “family” is fun, especially when one smokeshow of a firefighter attends the gatherings, but Cassie has no plans to remain in this small town. She’s ready to pursue her big city dreams. But when Braden asks for an assist for his precious pup, Cassie agrees to help him set up a town-wide scavenger hunt. It isn’t exactly a hardship to be around those blue eyes and brawny shoulders, especially since they both agree everything – even the undeniable sparks that crackle between them – is temporary.

But when temporary gets complicated by feelings that might lead to forever, Braden and Cassie start to question the direction they’re headed. Should they follow their dreams…or their hearts? It’ll take a dog with a bad nose and a sweet soul, two particularly meddlesome grandmas, and some help from the clan that loves them to make sure Cassie and Braden follow the clues and find their way to each other’s arms.

Just like The Dogfather, the covers of The Dogmothers were all photographed at Alaqua Animal Refuge in Florida using rescue dogs and local heroes, and a portion of the first month’s sales of every book is donated to that amazing organization.

About the Dogmothers series

Daniel Kilcannon, a widower with six unmarried kids, has not only orchestrated wonderfully happy endings for all his offspring…he’s found one of his own. That leaves his grown nieces and nephews plus his adult stepkids all in need of their own magical romances. Is The Dogfather too preoccupied with his new lady love to pull the strings and make the matches? Maybe. But there’s a new team in town and these two might be polar opposites in life but they are lined up in love. One grandmother has the steel spine of a Greek warrior, the other has the heart of an Irish poet. Together, along with two darling dachshunds, these Dogmothers won’t stop until all nine of their grandchildren are hooked, hitched, and happy.

When Agnes Santorini arrives in Bitter Bark, she has something to prove. The notoriously nasty Greek grandma seeks to show her growing family that she’s an all new Yiayia, inside and out. At the same time, Finola Kilcannon, the beloved octogenarian Irish blogger, knows that her role as the mistress of Waterford Farm is now in the hands of her son’s fiancée, and it’s time for Gramma Finnie to start the next chapter in her life. It doesn’t take long for these ladies to realize that they are stronger, better, and way more powerful together than apart, so they move into a Victorian that’s aging as gracefully as they are, and get to work. It takes a wee bit of meddling, a dash of manipulation, and plenty of help from man’s best friend, but the Dogmothers soon become as good as their predecessor, the Dogfather, at orchestrating a happily ever after.

In this new spin-off series, there’s laughter, love, heartache, hope, and happy endings in store for the Mahoney, Santorini, and, of course, the Kilcannon clans. With nine full length novels planned, plus a holiday novella every year, readers are in for a treat that will take them through 2021! Fans of The Dogfather series will find the same level of emotional intensity, familiar family connections and characters, and, of course, an unforgettable dog at the very heart of every story.

Watch for the first two books in 2019:
HOT UNDER THE COLLAR (on sale May 31 – preorder now!)
THREE DOG NIGHT (coming Fall of 2019)
And many, many more!

Surprise Announcement from Emma Hart

DM-BANNER.jpg

Dangerous Magic, an all-new cozy mystery from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart writing as Evie Hart, is coming May 16th!

PAPERBACKCOVER-1.jpg

It’s not every day you have to return to your hometown to bind your borderline-poltergeist grandmother to the family property.

Unfortunately, today is that day for Avery Thorn.

All Avery wants is to report the binding to the Witch Council so she can fulfill her obligation, but finding a dead body and the Head of the Council on the brink of death isn’t in her plan.

Especially when she’s pegged as the number one suspect.

Now, it’s down to Avery and her cousins—and her sassy feline familiar—to figure out who tried to murder the Head of the Council. Magically bound to find the culprit, the last thing she needs is the new detective getting under her toes.

Unfortunately for her, she finds herself colliding with the hot cop more than she wants. And since her familiar hates him, it’s not always pleasant.

New magic and a devastating tragedy threaten to derail their investigations—but not quite as much as the person who isn’t happy they’re involved…

Read Kay’s Review: The Perfect First

AUTHOR BIO

Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child and she hasn’t looked back. Now, her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.

You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.
