Excerpt

Can you sing us a song, Jason?Rae looks up at me.
Sure. It might sound a little funky today.I clear my throat and choose one of our older songs, something more upbeat.
I sit up on the couch, keeping hold of Cassidy Raes hand, and begin to sing.
Open road, windows down,
Dont need nything else
but you by my side,
Singing along to my radio,
Holding my hand in yours
Swimming in asphalt
And drowninin you,
I’ve got nowhere to be,
I’ve got all I need
Driving with you
I catch myself strumming my fingers, as if I had a guitar. Old habits are hard to break. Mid verse, Rae stands and begins to dance. I chuckle, but stay on beat.
I look over at Cassidy Rae and wink as I sing the words to her. Half way through, I mix it up and transition to another song of ours—smoother and slower. Rae continues to dance, causing Cassidy Rae to giggle and look between her and me, her eyes gentle.
I stand and put my hand out for Cassidy Rae to take it. She takes her time to stand, and I dance with her, still singing.
Youre sunshine and honey,
Youre whiskey on my lips,
Warm and sweet
Youre a slow-down ride
And back road trail,
Getting lost in evergreen
I twirl her around, and before she can come back to me, Rae has taken her free hand. Spying her other hand, I hold it and the three of us dance.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 ++ STARS

This is the second book I have read by Fabiola Francisco, and let me tell you, this woman knows how to write a romance that will melt your heart.

Jason is back from touring, and not exactly in a great place. He just found out the woman he thought he was going to have a future with wasn’t who he thought she was. He has some trust issues, but that kind of becomes irrelevant when he walks into a diner and sees Cassidy Rae.

Cassidy Rae is a single mother working hard to make ends meet and to raise her daughter. Her mother is ill, and she also tries to send home what she can to her father. She also has trust issues and is NOT impressed with Jason. Yes, she knows of his fame, but she doesn’t let that influence her. Yes, he is a very handsome man, but she can’t let that sway her either. She has no clue Jason has determined that he wants her to be his, and he wants to be hers. He will definitely work hard to win her trust and eventually, hopefully her love.

Cassidy Rae is an amazing woman! She hasn’t had the best luck in life, but she never let the bad stuff mire her down. In fact, even before Jason entered her life, and she was a working mother trying to make her and Rae’s lives better, she considered herself blessed with the gift of her sweet daughter. She appreciated every single minute with her. She was also very protective, not wanting Rae to get too attached to Jason at first. His life was so different than theirs. However, she also showed Jason what love really was. She loved him for who he was as a man, not who he was as a celebrity. She showed him that love will always conquer fear and doubt. She knew life never goes according to a plan, it’s unpredictable. She taught him that it is okay as long as they did it together. As he said, “Cassidy Rae is my compass.”

Who wouldn’t fall for Jason? He is different from most rock stars in the romance genre. He doesn’t sleep around, and he actually wants a relationship. In the beginning of the book, he was actually hurt by his ex, Christie, and her agenda. He was looking forward to a life with her. Fortunately, she messed up, and he walked into that diner and saw Cassidy Rae. Not only did he fall for her, but he fell for Rae as well! This guy spent hours talking to a child for hours, and he loved it!!! Who wouldn’t fall for a guy like that? He is protective of both of them, and he wants to take care of them despite Cassidy Rae’s objection of that! He is just an all-around wonderful man!!!

I can’t leave out my sweet, Rae. She is so sweet and intelligent. She knew Jason was right for her and her mother even if Cassidy Rae didn’t. She had Jason wrapped around her little finger. I liked that she was included as much as she was. It made the story very realistic!

If you love a romance that is sweet with some truly magical fairy tale moments…he did walk into a diner and set the course to completely sweep Cassidy Rae and her daughter off their feet, this book is for you! It is heartwarming with some really tender, sweet moments!!! Loved it!!!!

Shameless (Enemies to Lovers #5) by Michelle Horst Cover Reveal

 

 

 

 

RHETT

Evie Cole. She’s the one person I can’t figure out.
People say they love you, but what they really mean is that they love how you make them feel about themselves, or what they can take from you.
I can’t leave her on the streets, so I make her a deal she can’t refuse. It buys me the time I need to figure out whether Evie is the real deal or just another gold-digger.
The day Evie graduates, she breaks all contact with me, which proves that she was only in it for the money.
At least, that’s what I think, until random payments are made to my bank account.

EVIE

Rhett Daniels. My hero, who saved me from a life on the street. My unrequited love, who will sleep with every girl but me.
His playful smile and humorous façade might fool others, but not me. I see myself in his eyes.
He only has one rule.
He’ll pay for my education, giving me a chance to become independent. All I have to do is keep my clothes on which also means no dating.
I hate being his charity case, but I tell myself it will only be until I graduate. I will find a way to pay him back.
The worst part is that I fell in love with him.
Hoping to forget the one man I can never have, I move to the other side of the country. I’m determined to make it on my own, but things don’t always work out the way we want them to.

Rhett Daniels & Evie Cole ~ Book 5 in the Enemies To Lovers Series

Anonymous by L.P. Dover Blog Tour with Book Trailer


Title: ANONYMOUS
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Release Date: April 23, 2018

Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished.

My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.

I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.

31773

It’s someone from my past, only they won’t to tell me who they are, but that by talking to them, I’ll figure it out. It’s a game I refuse to play. Unfortunately, I’m left with no choice when things begin to take a dangerous turn.

His name is Anonymous and there’s only one thing he wants … ME.

 

Renee Entress’ Book Blog – “DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!”

Heather Lovelace – “Holy moly! This book…the pace wouldn’t let up. The perfect combination of tension and drama and romance and just overall fabulousness.”

Rebecca Edwards – “Ellie’s story will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more”

She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.
Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.

The Hookup by Erin McCarthy Excerpt Reveal with Pre-Order Links

Ready to get a sneak peek at THE HOOKUP by Erin McCarthy, coming May 8th? Check out an excerpt below and preorder your copy now!

About THE HOOKUP

Available May 8th

Is there an equation for the perfect hookup? Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than one plus one. . . .

Sophie: Numbers are my comfort zone, which explains why my sex life is a big fat zero. Then again, if I’m smart enough to earn a PhD, why can’t I calculate a way to get a guy into bed, just to see what all the fuss is about? With my prima donna sister, Bella, getting married in Maine, I figure her wedding is the perfect opportunity for my little experiment. And Cain Jordan seems hot enough—he’s certainly drunk enough—to show me what I’ve been missing. Judging by the body of evidence, it’s a lot. . . .

Cain: Being stuck in the same town as my lying SOB twin brother, Christian—who may or may not be the father of the son I’m not allowed to see—is a hell of a reason to drink myself silly after the lobster boat docks each day. Any port in a storm . . . But Sophie’s different. She doesn’t play around. And she’s becoming a habit I don’t want to break. Because the smartest woman I’ve ever met is also the sexiest—and the only one who makes me want to change.

Don’t miss Bella and Christian’s story in The Breakup!

Read an Excerpt from THE HOOKUP

I saw him the minute we walked into the bar. A guy perched comfortably on a stool, his arms muscular, his grin confident, arrogant. He had short dark hair and a jawline that was sharp and symmetrical. Dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, this was no software engineer or physicist. This was one of those manly men that they use for memes on Pinterest and for beer commercials and underwear ads. He was abs and ass, muscles and machismo, and like any other female, I had an immediate reaction to all that testosterone.

My heart started to race and my body started to tense and tighten, and grow warm in places that normally only got hot and wet in the privacy of my own apartment. I wanted to fan myself as I stared at him, blinking through the veil of mascara and fake lashes.

It was like my vagina stood up and sang. Him. He would be the one. The man to take my virginity and make it a memory. He wasn’t my type, but that wasn’t the point. He wouldn’t be interested in me either, but I knew enough about bar culture to know that if he was here, he was interested in going home with a girl. I could be that girl.

I was delusional, of course, a fact I was forced to acknowledge immediately when I realized that despite the fact that my dress had coaxed huge cleavage from my reluctant breasts, the hottie was checking out my sister.

So typical. But I couldn’t deny that blondes were more fun. At least more fun than me.

I walked past him to the bar and plucked the menu off the countertop, debating how to proceed. Men. The one equation I could never solve.

The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane

by Emily Harvale

New Beginnings

Mia Ward is amazed to be told she has inherited her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda.

 

She’s even more astonished to discover she’ll only inherit the place if she actually lives there for one year. Mia’s a city girl at heart, not to mention she’s afraid of water, so the fact the cottage backs on to a sandy beach, is not, in her opinion, a bonus.

But Mia’s struggling to pay her rent since being fired for inappropriate behaviour at the office party, and her boyfriend’s also dumped her. When her best friend, Ella and Ella’s brother, Garrick offer to help her move and settle in, Mia decides to see this as a new beginning.

It may also be the start of an exciting adventure because now Mia wants to know just who, exactly, was great-aunt Matilda. And she’s determined to find out. But it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale….

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…

And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.

So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.

My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.

What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart.

About the Staci

StaciHartStaci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
