About Cards of Love: Knight of Wands

A chance for a sweet future, or a recipe for disaster?

Kaitlynn

My dream was to cook my way to fame and fortune, not run myself ragged keeping my late parents’ quaint Savannah restaurant afloat. My sister is useless, I’m chronically short-staffed, and even Gertie, my antiquated oven, hates me.

Then in charges Oliver, like a Golden Knight. He’s hunky and charming and makes others feel at ease. He’s earnest and kind, optimistic and extroverted. My best friend. My sister’s ex. Picking up the slack like he never left all those years ago. Making my body shiver with the lightest touch, the slightest smile. It would be so easy to let him be my knight in shining armor. But I can’t let him, even though he makes Gertie purr like a kitten.

Oliver

I practically grew up waiting tables alongside KitKat. She’s a brilliant chef, but it’s clear she’s no manager. I’ve noticed other changes in her since her letters stopped coming to me in Iraq. There’s fire burning in her green eyes—and pain.

The kiss was meant to comfort. But it explodes into searing passion so white-hot, not even the tallest, iciest sweet tea can quench it. I shouldn’t try. She doesn’t want help, especially not mine. But a kiss like that is the beginning of a promise. A promise that won’t stop until I help her find her dream.



Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Claudia Burgoa has given her readers a sweet, emotional romance with Cards of Love: Knight of Wands. It’s a short read, but it packs quite the emotional punch!

Kaitlynn and Oliver were best friends as children, and when he went into the military, she was always faithful in writing to him. Life happened, and the letters stopped. Now, Oliver is back in town, and KitKat has definitely grown up. He feels a pull toward her he can’t explain…it has nothing to do with friendship. Kaitlynn feels that pull toward Oliver too. They have always had feelings for each other, but it never seemed the right time for anything to happen. Now, maybe it’s time!!!!

Kaitlynn and Oliver are both extremely strong, independent people. Life has thrown them some curveballs, but they never stayed down for long. I think they were perfect for one another because of their similarities. Both are caring, giving, and loyal individuals. Oliver is the epitome of the description of a knight that Burgoa highlighted at the beginning of the book.

This is a short read, and I read it within just a couple of hours, if that. However, she paces the story perfectly, giving a background and history of the characters. Therefore, the romance doesn’t feel rushed. Grab this sweet romance today. You won’t regret it!!!!

Faux Pas by Natasha Madison Review Tour with Excerpt

3 Oct

 

 

 

Meghan
Five days in Paris sounded like a great idea for three friends. Especially when amazing wine was in play.

It didn’t matter that our rented “apartment” only had one bed, and barely enough space to breathe, we were in Paris and our motto was c’est la vie.

Nothing would faze us, not even the rude waiter at the first restaurant we went to, or the insanely hot manger who was insulted when a bottle of wine was returned.

Nothing could bring me down or knock me off my path to the best vacation of my life.

Alex

I had six days in Paris and then I’d go back to my wine vineyard. It was smooth sailing, until three “americans” came into the restaurant and returned my newest full bodied, savory creation.

I ignored her until she stormed out of the restaurant looking for a taxi at one in the morning. I couldn’t leave her wandering around the streets of Paris, could I?

I’d give her a ride, make sure she was safe, and my duty would be done. Except, was it?

Something about her pulled me.

This could be a vacation fling. After all, there is no real reason for her to know my interesting secret.

I’m France’s most eligible bachelor.

This faux pair is almost a faux pas…



Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Looking for a romance to make you swoon? Then look no further than Faux Pas by Natasha Madison.

Meghan and her friends book a dream trip to Paris. It was supposed to be fun, enjoying the wonderful food and taking in the beautiful sites. Love definitely wasn’t on the itinerary, but one faux pas at a restaurant, and Meghan’s life is about to change forever.

Alex is in Paris checking in on his family’s restaurants and trying to keep a low profile. The beautiful redhead who complains about a bottle of wine gets under in skin, in more ways than one. He can’t get her out of his mind even though he knows it isn’t a good idea. This, my fellow readers, is the beginning of a whirlwind, fairytale romance.

The connection between the two of them is instant, and they do fall in love pretty quickly. But, isn’t this why we love books like this…they’re magical and take you away from real life for just a bit. Paris is the city of love. And….there isn’t too much angst either!

The romance was both sweet and very steamy. While I loved that, I really felt like Natasha Madison was my tour guide through the beautiful streets of Paris. She painted such a clear, detailed picture from some of the most famous sites to the cafes, and oh my goodness, the food she described. I felt like I was a part of this great group of friends enjoying the city with them.

I’ve been a fan of Madison’s, so I’m very happy when she has a new release. This book was no exception. It’s a love story for all of us romantics at heart while celebrating family and friends.

EXCERPT

He makes his way through the tables, straight to ours. “quel est le problème?” What is the problem, his voice comes out gruff, the smell of his musk hitting my nose.

“Le vin n’est pas bon,” The wine isn’t good, I start saying, and I look at his eyes that look almost black. I’m not sure if it’s his natural color, or if the restaurant is dimmer now than before, or maybe it’s just his form blocking the lights. “il a un goût de vinaigre.” It tastes like vinegar, and I’m not sure it was the right thing to say or not. He stares at me, not saying a word. “Taste it.” I give up on my French and switch to English. “You’ll see.”

I’m waiting for him to say something back, but he doesn’t. Instead, he turns around and walks away from the table, going into the back. “What the fuck just happened?” Diana says in a whisper. We all turn to see where he went, checking to see if he is going to storm back in.

“She insulted his wine,” Kate says, leaning in and speaking softly.

I throw my hands in the air. “It was shit,” I say louder than I wanted to. “You guys said it yourself.” Looking around, I see that a couple of the tables are looking at us, but the majority of the tables are deep in their own conversations and not paying attention.

We don’t say anything else when we see the waiter come back with a new bottle in one hand and a new wine glass in the other. He uncorks the wine, then pours a touch in and waits for me to taste it. I don’t say anything to him; I just nod my head, and he puts the bottle in the middle of the table. “I guess I will pour the wine,” Kate says, picking up the bottle and pouring it in everyone’s glass. I pick up the glass of wine and bring it to my lips. The cold glass is resting on my lips when I feel someone staring at me. I look down and take a sip, then look around, and I guess it’s just me because no one is looking in my direction.

By the time we finish dinner, we’ve drunk two more bottles. and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The food was amazing. “We need a taxi,” I say. Getting up, I grab my jacket, shrugging it on.

“I think we can walk to the corner that way,” Diana says, pointing at the sky, “and flag one down.”

“If we go that way,” Kate says, pointing at the sky, “we need to call NASA.” We all laugh out loud while the waiter comes to take the bill from us.

“Merci.” We smile at him as he walks away, still not saying a word.

“Yes, thank you for my glass of ice cubes that you only brought me one of even though I asked for seven,” Kate says, laughing while trying to whisper. “And thank you for pouring our wine.”

“Okay, let’s go,” I say, walking to the front door.

“I’m going to ask him for a taxi,” Kate says, going to the waiter who stands at the hostess counter and asking him for a cab.

I watch from the front door as Diana stands behind her while I look in my bag and pull out my lip gloss.

“Pardon.” I hear Kate say loudly, and I look up.

“Vous pensez qu’après tout ce que vous avez fait ce soir vous méritez que je vous appelle un taxi ?” I stand here with my mouth open in shock when he answered her. Do you think after everything you did to me tonight that you deserve that I call you a taxi?

Kate starts. “What did I do? Expect you to do your job?” she says, and Diana grabs her arm, pulling her to the front door.

“Did he just say …?” I ask her when we are standing outside in front of the restaurant, the wind blowing my hair in front of my face. I turn my head, making it fly back the other way.

“So it’s safe to say,” Diana starts with a laugh, “we aren’t coming back to this restaurant.”

“Take a picture of it, and tomorrow we can go on Yelp and leave a bad review,” Kate says, grabbing her phone from her pocket.

“Let’s just go,” I say, and the three of us look around at the desolate street.

“What time is it?” I ask and take out my phone. “Shit, it’s one a.m.”

“Yeah,” Diana says. We look right down the dark street and see some traffic coming from up ahead. “We should walk to that street and flag down a taxi.”

We all nod and start walking with Kate in the middle. “He was such an ass,” Kate says, “and the boss or manager was an even bigger ass.”
“Seriously,” I say, turning to them. “It’s like it was my fault his wine was shit,” I say, and then we all stop when a white four-door Audi stops next to us, surprising us.

“Get in.” The voice sounds familiar, but the street is so dark it doesn’t help. I lean in a bit to see his face, and I’m shocked when I see it’s the manager from the restaurant.

 

 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Title: Cold Spell

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Cold Spell:

She can’t stand him. He thinks she’s never more adorable than when she’s pissed at him.

Liddy Drake would rather gamble on double black diamond runs than take a chance on love. Escaping dreary San Francisco for a Colorado mountain resort with her besties is just what the doctor ordered. But an injury on the first day lands her in the lap of a loud-mouthed ski instructor who knows exactly how to get under her skin. She doesn’t have time to waste on a playboy with a too-easy laugh and gorgeous blue eyes.

Luke Sawyer left New York ten years ago for the ski runs of Colorado, concealing his identity as a Rothchild heir. He’d seen money change too many people, never for good. Scrappy, sassy, and oh-so-sexy Liddy doesn’t fall for the mask of his over-the-top charm. He accepts the challenge to show her his true self.

Their chemistry is enough to melt snow-capped mountains, until she finds out the truth. There’s no way her humble background could compete with America’s royalty. How can he melt the ice around her heart and convince her that Mr. Wrong is actually Mr. Right, who loves her just the way she is?

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Anyone need skiing lessons? We have the best instructors on the planet, right here at Buffalo Ridge. Or at least the best ones who showed up to their final exams.” He grinned and got a few chuckles from bystanders. “We promise full support and positive reinforcement, and will only make fun of you behind your back. We encourage everyone to take a nice full shot of whiskey before they put on their skis, to help loosen up your muscles and your wallets for extra tips.”

“Oh, brother,” Liddy mumbled under her breath, and pushed through a crowd of teenagers watching the man’s pathetic excuse for a sales pitch.

The instructor continued, “Safety is our top priority, followed closely by leaving all inhibitions at the door.”

Just as I expected—one of those guys.

Liddy had almost made it to the end of the hallway.

“You, the gorgeous woman in the white coat trying to sneak by…”

Liddy froze. And cringed.

The man grinned. “You look like you could use ski lessons. Or at least a stiff drink at the bar.”

She straightened her spine, and addressed him eye-to-eye, despite all the gawkers and bystanders. “Are you the instructor? My instructor?”

“I can be, for you.”

Liddy smiled. “Then, no thanks.”

The man’s smile slipped. A few guests oohed at the burn, and others chuckled.

“Why not?” he asked.

Never mind that I ski black diamonds, I just don’t like you. “If it were with one of the others, I might consider it.”

A few more hisses came from the crowd.
She turned to find the rental shop, but she heard his footsteps behind her, trying to follow.

“Wait, you don’t like me? Everyone likes me.”

“I can’t imagine why,” Liddy threw over her shoulder.

He laughed, the sound of his voice much closer than before. “Why don’t you like me?”

“You’re obnoxious. And I already know how to ski.”

“I could make you better.”

She rolled her eyes. “Modesty is so hard to find these days.”

“I’m not being cocky, just trying to find the best way to talk to you more. It’s not every day an angel walks into Buffalo Ridge.”

WHISKEY SOUR by Nazarea Andrews

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

(River Street Bar series, #4)

Blurb:

Calvin Landers is a mess.
He has a great job and a steady string of men and women in his bed, and has been in love with the same couple for so long he can’t remember a time when he wasn’t. Coming off fresh heartbreak, he’s ready to move on, to give up on romance and sex altogether and moves in with his best friend, Davis, while he looks for something more permanent and tries to figure out what the hell he’s doing with his life.
Ava Liu isn’t looking for anything more than something to distract her from the book she’s supposed to be translating. Something to distract her from why the hell she’s in River City in the first place. But the boys who share a fence are more than a little distracting and pushy, when they realize just how much Ava needs someone–and how much they all need each other.
Sometimes life happens just when you stop looking.

EXCERPT:

There’s a man there, in faded jeans and a green henley and a big grin—although, that grin kind of stutters, dips into confused and speculative as he stares at me.

“Uh. This is—I’m looking for 9800 Blackmore Lane?”

I point to the side, where the old Miller house is sitting in all its innocent glory. “I’m 8900. Go bang on the right door.”

He gives me an apologetic smile and wags a coffee at me.

It’s a coffee from Cool Beans Cafe, something I only get when I can talk Kip into grabbing it before she drops in. And that’s rare enough—she has opinions about how much coffee I drink.

“Peace offering?” he says, with a hopeful little smile that shouldn’t be as charming as it is.

I huff and snatch it from him, inhaling the scent. I give a tiny noise, soft and satisfied. Then I blink, because a stranger is still standing on my porch staring at me, bemused.

“Sorry for snapping,” I mumble.

He laughs. “Sorry for being the unobservant dick who woke you up so early.” I smile at that, pleased, and he extends a hand. “Davis Emmerson. I’m moving into 9800.”

“And you don’t know what it looks like?” I say skeptically.

He laughs and blushes, rubbing the back of his neck in the most adorable display of self-conscious embarrassment I’ve ever seen. “Yeah, no. My best friend is moving in first—he came yesterday. He picked the place. I’m just here for the excellent wifi.”

Oh. Interesting.

“Well, I’m sorry, ma’am. I’ll let you get back to your morning.”

“Ava,” I offer shyly and he glances back at me. “My name. It’s Ava.”

A smile slips over his face and he nods. “You should come by tomorrow. I’m making cookies.”

Surprise flickers in his gaze, but he grins as he backs down the stairs. “I will. See you soon, Miss Ava.”

I breathe through the flush on my skin and shut the door as he hits the sidewalk. Then I sit in my favorite chair and slowly savor my coffee, letting my mind drift aimlessly while I do.

It’s only when the coffee is gone and I’ve dressed and done my makeup for the day—it’s only then that I panic.

I have no fucking clue how to make cookies.
