March 15, 2014

The Plot: Divorced construction worker Derek has anger management issues. Acting rashly on the freeway, he causes an accident. His truck escapes unscathed, but he can‘t say the same for his conscience. Visions of the wreck haunt his dreams, but they‘re always followed by the sweet caresses and soothing words of a beautiful woman who calls to everything male in him. Cami assumes she is dead. With no memory of her past, all she knows is endless fog and the occasional visit to a darkened bedroom where she comforts a man battling nightmares. When she wakes in a hospital bed and regains her memory, she assumes the ruggedly handsome Derek was no more than a figment of her concussed mind. As Cami recovers, she learns that Derek is not only real but also the driver charged with causing her accident. She should be furious with him, but their inexplicable nights together showed her a tender side beneath his rough exterior. Will she let one reckless mistake drive them apart, or will forgiveness have the right of way? Review—Angela Rose, Satin Sheets Romance Reviews Wrote: ―This story was magical in every way, and I was unable to put it down.

Some things never change—she‘ll barely give him the time of day, and she still looks as good as she did that night at Prom.

The Duke of Devonwood

By: Carly Carson

April 4, 2014

The Plot: Miranda's father left her inheritance under the trusteeship of a Duke of England? Did he not realize this is the twenty-first century? She is certainly capable of managing her money. More importantly, she needs that money to start her business, and keep her family together. She is not about to sit around while some arrogant Duke tells her what she can do with her own money. Luckily, she's determined, hard-working, and a touch devious. She vows to do whatever it takes to foil the Duke... The Duke of Devonwood doesn't want more dependents. With an entire dukedom to run, plus his father's second family to manage, he has too many people hanging on his coattails. But this headstrong American, Miranda, won't take 'no' for an answer. In fact, she soon has his other dependents conniving with her—and against him. He could handle the problem...if only she weren't so enticing. Review—Brittany on Goodreads Wrote: "This is the first book I have read about a Duke in modern times and I must say I really enjoyed it. I usually have only read about nobility in Historicals so it was a nice twist to see how an alpha male noble acts in the world today. I loved the growing romance between the two main characters and all the crazy stuff the heroine does trying to annoy the duke. I am looking forward to reading more in this series." book_show_action=true&page=1

Hearts in Harmony

May 5, 2014

The Plot: Pippa Sanders‘ life is filled with songs of leaving, longing and loneliness. Since the death of her husband, her children have been her world. She‘ll do anything to protect them, including encasing her heart in ice until they‘re college age. She‘s made a practice of shying away from any relationship that could break her heart when it ends. Clay Mathers has made a temporary move to Granite Pointe, Massachusetts to help with his mother‘s Christmas tree farm while she recovers from a stroke. Although his longrange plans don‘t include staying in the small town, a little female companionship during his short residency would be welcome. While on sentry duty at a military funeral, he finds Pippa visiting her husband‘s grave, and begins a campaign to make her into a friend–with benefits. Their simple affair evolves to something more, something that changes the soundtracks of both their lives…the beating of two hearts in harmony. Review—NetGalley Reviewer Negar Arvanaghi Wrote: Bravo to the author for writing a high-powered book, while still making it realistic.

Healing the Wounds: By: M. Q. Barber

Neighborly Affection Book Three

June 2, 2014

The Plot: When Alice leapt into sexual games with her neighbors Henry and Jay, she didn‘t plan to fall in love. She sure didn‘t expect she‘d be the switch between Henry‘s commanding mastery and Jay‘s submissive playfulness. But now she‘s moving in with them, and she‘d better figure it all out—fast. Trouble is, she‘s never been a live-in girlfriend. The day after a traumatic first night at a BDSM club might not be the best time to start. Struggling to find her place within the lifestyle, Alice seeks equality in a relationship built on surrender. Learning to lean on Henry challenges the foundation of her self-worth. He‘ll have to lean on her in return for their triad to find stability. But can her stoic dominant lover accept her as a confidante as well as a submissive?

Second Chances

February 22, 2014

The Plot: After a nearly thirty-year marriage to a man suffering from depression, Samantha Powell has decided a nice quiet, drama-free life is for her. She has demons to combat and selfesteem issues to overcome. She has decided to sell her house and find a nice little condo that places virtually no maintenance demands on her, and allows her to work on herself for a while. Grayson Kinkaide has waited his whole life, all fifty-five years of it, looking for his soul mate, the other half of himself. He suffered through an awful marriage with a manipulative, selfish woman who almost brought him to his knees. The only things that kept him strong were his children and his growing business. When Gray meets Sam, both of their lives change drastically. Sam‘s dream of a dramafree life is jerked from her grasp as Gray‘s ex does everything in her power to tear them apart. Gray has to fight—hard—to convince Sam they‘re meant to be together. Review—Amazon Reader Reviewer Ruth Spang Wrote: Great story; I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters and each one‘s story.

The one thing that remains out of her reach is the man she knows she‘ll never have...and he happens to work just down the hall from her. Brett has all but given up hope of breaching the wall around Victoria‘s heart. In fact, he‘s engaged to be married back in London in only two months. But he knows Victoria has desires; he‘s seen them firsthand. When a night of passion rekindles old feelings, can he finally fulfill the ultimate fantasy of the woman who‘s made it her mission to satisfy everyone‘s desires but her own? After all, whatever the erotic dream, it can come true at Fantasy Mountain. Review—Amazon reviewer Jessica Wrote: The plot surprised me time and again, and the characters were painfully real and imperfect and sympathetic.

She‘s found a tentative peace among her family, and despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she‘d have—love. Josh is the only male she‘s ever wanted, but he‘s the one man she can‘t keep. One glance into Mira‘s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She‘s everything he never knew he wanted, and loving her becomes a passion he can‘t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he‘s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He‘ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body, and soul. Review—Kaylyn of Riverina Romantics Wrote: ―The plot was amazing…their happy ending was far above anything I could have hoped for.‖ https://

And he likes sirens; they‘re strong, sassy, and sexy. Lindy‘s siren heritage makes her fierce, lusty, and curious, but she dreams of loving one man forever. When Neptune demands her as his sacrifice, she‘s determined to give her virginity to anyone but him. Janus, or Jase as he calls himself now, rescues Lindy from Neptune‘s mermen. He‘s the one man she‘s eager to bed. The clock‘s ticking. Lindy has forty-eight hours to seduce the siren-hating Jase and win his heart. That or Neptune will find her and take her against her will.

I Do...Or Die

May 5, 2014

The Plot: ―Always a bridesmaid, never a bride‖ is Shelby Atwood's credo. She‘s avoided commitment all her life—no pets, no plants, not even a long-term lease. She‘s had colds last longer than her relationships. How could she be any other way when her father's a gigolo? Gunfire erupts at the latest wedding she‘s in, and it's the best thing to happen to Shelby‘s love life. Detective Ryan Nichols becomes her twenty-four-hour bodyguard. Shelby wouldn‘t mind except he is too appealing, too sexy, and too happy to remind her of the bachelorette party when she mistook him for a stripper. Shelby plans to find the shooter, have a fling with Ryan, and return to her noncommittal life. Unfortunately, the shooter is very elusive. Shelby‘s feelings for Ryan are more than adrenaline-fueled lust. And returning to her previous life is impossible since she‘s managed to put her heart in the line of fire.
