Love in Bloom: Seaside Summers

November 30, 2016

 

 

 

 

Seaside Summers is a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

“Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!” New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely

 

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux–an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy–is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira.

A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

“You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that’s fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won’t want to stop reading. Every book’s a winner!” New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak

“With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!” New York Times Bestseller Julie Kenner

Their Brazen Bride by Vanessa Vale

Their Brazen Bride

Vanessa Vale

The Bridgewater Menage Series

December 1, 2016

 

 

 

Abigail Carr has her sights on the Landry boys, both Bridgewater men. That means they claim a bride together, which is just fine with her. Both Tucker and Gabe have turned her head. But she’s ruined her chances with them because of a bad situation of her own making. She’s made up a beau to feel included in the community. But news travels fast in a small town and her lie has taken on a life of its own.

Tucker and Gabe Landry want Abigail, but they won’t claim what belongs to another. Discovering the truth, they vow to make her theirs, no matter what it takes.


About Vanessa Vale

Who doesn’t love the romance of the old West? USA Today Bestselling author Vanessa Vale takes the sensual appeal of rugged cowboys a step further with her bestselling books set in the Montana Territory. They are much more than just sexy historical westerns. They’re deliciously naughty reads that sometimes push the boundaries of fantasy. It’s pure escapism with quite a few very hot, very alpha cowboys.

When she’s not writing, Vanessa savors the insanity of raising two boys, is figuring out how many meals she can make with a pressure cooker, and teaches a pretty mean karate class. She considers herself to be remarkably normal, exceedingly introverted and fairly vanilla, which does not explain her steamy stories and her fascination with cowboys, preferably more than one at a time.

She lives in the Wild Wild West where there’s an endless source of ‘research’ material.

He knows that pain makes you stronger…

Wolf isn’t always a good person, and he doesn’t hesitate to say what’s on his mind.

He is who he is, and he doesn’t offer apologies.

He isn’t out to impress anyone, and he doesn’t make excuses for his actions.

She knows that fear makes you braver…

Raven has made some bad decisions, and she’d give anything to go back in time and choose a different path. 

The reality is that she can’t go back, and the day Wolf walks into her life, she finally realizes that maybe she doesn’t want to.

Wolf is everything she’s ever wanted, and the exact opposite of what she needs.

They both know heartbreak makes you wiser…

Wolf knows that this is not a good idea. There are a million reasons—all of them bad—telling him exactly why he should stay away.

But when Raven’s nightmares burst out of her dreams and into her reality, he doesn’t have a choice anymore.

He has to protect her, while somehow protecting his battered heart.

Fury’s Magic

Yasmine Galenorn

Fury Unbound Series, Book 2

Kindle Edition
Published November 15th 2016 by Nightqueen Enterprises

 

 

 

“My name is Kaeleen Donovan. I’m a Theosian-a minor goddess. They call me Fury.”

By day, I run the Crossroads Cleaning Company, and I also read fortunes and cast hexes at Dream Wardens, a magical consulting shop. But by night, I’m oath-bound to Hecate, Goddess of the Crossroads. Hecate charged me from birth with the task of hunting down Abominations who come in off the World Tree and sending them back to Pandoriam.

On a routine cleaning job in Portside—a boat full of ghosts need their joyride cut short—Tam and I run afoul of the Devani. The ruthless soldiers of Elysium capture him and send him out to the Tremble, a place of wild, chaotic madness. Jason and I devise a plan to sneak in and help Tam escape. But Lyon and the Order of the Black Mist reappear, and I’m on their hit list. Lyon opens a door to the Netherworld and the dead are pouring into the city. Now, we must wade through both the Devani and the dead to save Tam. And we must close the portal on the World Tree before Lyon manages to wake the Elder Gods of Chaos.

4 Stars

Dark, dangerous, unique and suspenseful.

Fury’s Magic is the fast paced, action packed second book of the Fury Unbound series. I adore Fury! She’s strong, loyal and a great friend. Also a total kick butt woman. Fury made strides in dealing with some of her darker emotions. I loved seeing that growth in her, along with learning more of where she’s from. As of lover of lore and legends the origins of the Broken and the Theosians were an added treat for me. Meeting new characters and unexpected twist to the plot kept this reader on the edge of her seat.
Fury’s Magic is truly paranormal at its finest. Ms. Galenorn’s personal touch on myths, legends and lore is imaginative, fresh and exciting. Her world building is an art form in itself. It’s almost like the setting is a character in itself. Yasmine Galenorn’s imagination and talent for weaving words, together to create a fascinating world that draws readers in and makes them never want to leave.
A free copy of this book was provided for review. I voluntarily chose to review this title.

ARC Review: Ink Exposed by Carrie Ann Ryan

Ink Exposed

Carrie Ann Ryan

Montgomery Ink Series, Book 6

Expected publication: November 29th 2016

 

 

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

4.5 Stars

 

Alex Montgomery has hid his addiction to alcohol very well to those he loves. Until the rock hit the bottom, almost losing those he treasured most in his life. A year later and treatment in rehab, finds Alex working hard to maintain his sobriety and figuring out his life. Each day is a battle in will, strength and endurance as he picks up the pieces and tries to move forward.

Tabby Collins is the gear that keeps the office of Montgomery Inc running like a fine tuned machine. A smart woman who has a passion for planners and lists. Tabby is an honorary member of the Montgomery clan. She had a crush on a man she’s seen crack to his core and watches him try to get himself back together.

Hot, hopeful and healing.

Ms. Ryan never fails to deliver an emotional story that readers feel deeply. Ink Exposed is a wound cut open, admission of faults and failing, recovery with soul deep healing story. One that will require tissues for the emotional depth and a fan to cool off from the heat of the passion.

Tabby and Alex, so amazing together.

OMG!  Dirty Talker ALERT!!!  The heat of Ink Exposed is very high but there is a deep passion weaved into every sensual moment.  The communication between Alex and Tabby is a high point of the book.

There was no sugar coating to Alex’s alcoholism. An issue that Ms. Ryan hit on the nail. He’s actions and thoughts allowed readers to feel right along with him. An ugly healing process written beautifully.  Tabby and Alex have a bumpy road with demons and secrets. A constant battle plaguing them both in different ways.  With trust, compassion, growth and some hope and faith two people found a way to love.

A truly outstanding emotional and sensual read.

Sometimes the only choice is to take a chance…and enjoy the consequences.

Sean Reynolds is content wielding his dominant personality as the public face of Kagan Industries. Pack leadership—and all the responsibilities that go with it—doesn’t interest him. But when alpha-in-waiting Nic Kagan skips town, there’s no one to take on his aging father’s spirit wolf. No one but Sean.

Sean wants none of it, but with his wolf growling in eagerness to fill that void, he heads for the bar in an attempt to drink the beast into submission.

He’d like to ignore the sultry blonde shifter burning up the dance floor with moves that make him painfully aware of the full moon. But when she abruptly disappears, his wolf sends him in hot pursuit. Following the scent of a female he can see in his bed not for a single night, but for a lifetime…

Note: This is a short novella (11K) that introduces the Kagan Pack, the Alexander Pride’s single shifter neighbors. This is not a full length book, but it may be read as a standalone.

About Nancy Corrigan

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.

She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.

Video game coder, Harley Kelso, thought a tandem skydive would help her make her latest game more realistic. Instead, it literally put her in the arms of the sexiest man she s ever seen. Geeky to the core, Harley is the polar opposite of big and burly Beckett, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to play more carnal games with the sexy soldier.

When Beckett Coach Ralston offers to fill-in at a friend s skydiving club, he doesn t suspect he ll meet a woman who will change his life and he definitely doesn t expect her to save it. But that s exactly what happens when an accident mid-air forces Harley to land them both safely. She s earned Coach s complete gratitude, and even more, sexual interest

Until she disappears without a trace.

With Harley missing, a happy ending might not be in the cards for the man who loves her especially when he becomes the main suspect.”

The fact she’s got a titillating challenge to complete only helps his case.Darci just may be the fastest cougar to snag her cub yet. Being the victim of a crime has never been more fun!

 

 

 

 

review

 

4 Stars  

Darci-Rae is a fun loving, carefree kind of woman. I want her in my group of friends.  An Australian school teacher who’s naughty side is a bit tired of being put off to the side. Darci’s very straight laced sister voice is always popping into her head. Causing Darci to question who she is and what she doing.

Jarrod St. James is a sexy younger cop investigating a case of identity theft and an illegal phone sex operation. Spontaneous and aggressive in all the right ways. The man is persistent and sexy as hell.

Hilarious and sexy. Lexxie Couper takes readers on an intense, fun ride from beginning to end.  The chemistry is beyond hot and the character personalities are spot on. Humor and passion are perfectly balanced. A quick read, one sit read that will leave you panting for hotness.

A copy of this title was provided for an honest review.
