About the Book

 

What happens after all your dreams come true?

Ariana Byrne knows how to survive. After becoming guardian to her four little sisters after their parents died when she was only eighteen, she had to grow up quickly. Now she’s in her twenties, stuck in a loveless marriage to Greg, trying to make ends meet for her young twins, William and Leo.

So when Ari is told that she’s actually the Right Honourable Lady de Foix, Countess of Hiverton, owner of a sprawling estate in the village of Saxburgh in Norfolk, her first instinct is laughter. Surely the girl who has to choose between food and keeping the lights on isn’t really rich beyond her wildest dreams?

She knows how to take care of her sisters and her children, but how on earth can Ari take care of an entire village? Can she fight off the circling land developers from Saxburgh, and stop her in-laws from grabbing all the money for themselves?

And while she’s struggling to settle in and settle down, she’s making new friends and new mistakes. Trusting her gorgeous neighbour, Sebastian Flint-Hyssop, may be the biggest one of all…

She’s swapped sink estate for country estate…but can a girl from inner city London learn how to become a Lady?

Take a trip to Hiverton Manor for the most uplifting novel of 2020 – guaranteed to put a smile on your face! Fans of Jenny Colgan, Trisha Ashley and Carole Matthews will love this romantic, feelgood read.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

What a great combination of chick lit and women’s fiction! It has parts that make you laugh, parts that make you angry and sad, and parts that make your heart go pitter-patter!!!

Ariana Bryne is a strong woman, even though at first glance, she doesn’t appear to be. She allows her husband to walk all over her. However, it soon becomes apparent, she isn’t anybody’s doormat. She is quite the opposite. She has her reasons for making the decisions she does. She has no clue her entire life is about to completely change. 

Ari soon learns she has come into quite a healthy inheritance. In fact, she is the Lady de Foix, Countess of Hiverton. She has inherited several properties and an entire estate in the village of Saxburgh. Ari had no idea her mother had turned her back on that life when she married her father. Years ago, her parents died, and she fought to take care of her four sisters. This won’t be an easy transition…she has to deal with taking care of the villagers, her estate, and most importantly her children. If that wasn’t enough, she has land developers salivating to get their hands parts of the village, her detestable in-laws, and maybe even a  new love interest, Sebastian. I loved watching her change from the beginning of the book until the end. She was truly a heroine, not only to herself but to the people who lived in her village. 

I loved the characters, especially Ari’s sisters. They are all very different, but complete the family. Seb was a great hero and love interest. He became a huge supporter of Ari, and he showed her not all men are TERRIBLE!!!! But, Ari was my favorite. She showed so much resilience and strength in all that she had to endure, and I loved how she embraced all of the villagers. She was a phenom of a mother!!!!

The author combined a great cast of characters as well as a wonderful setting. I felt like I was a part of the story myself! Can’t wait to read more about her sisters later!!!!

Meet the Author:

When I grew up I wanted to be an underwater archaeologist or an astronaut but I ended up in a library. Everyone laughed as I’m not a naturally quiet person but I loved it. I went on to become a professional librarian for the money and the glamour. Not finding quite enough of either my husband and I set up a bookshop. We didn’t find much there either so I started writing. Now I have loads of money and glamour but only in the pages of my books! In the meantime I dive and look at the stars.

Bachelor Boss (The Bachelor’s Club #2) by Sara Ney Cover Reveal

Release Date: April 7 

 

What is The Bachelors Club?
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have. Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
We’re ineligible bachelors, bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually. So committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest…
Four days co-habitating in a shared work space shouldn’t be a big deal. It shouldn’t be distracting. But Spencer Standish saw me puking in a company trash can, and won’t let me live it down. Cheerful, aggravating Spencer, who wants me to fetch her coffee.
As if she’s the boss of me.
And now I’m stuck sharing her office.
Let’s face facts: I can’t be in a relationship; not when there’s a bet to win—not with Spencer, who loves my uncontrollable basset hound, lazy Sundays, and grilled cheese as much as I do. I refuse to fall for her.
will be the last Bachelor standing.

Weekend Wife by Erin McCarthy Blog Tour with Excerpt

“The perfect, irresistible romantic comedy!”

—Erin Nicholas, New York Times bestselling author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Weekend Wife, an all-new sassy and quirky stand-alone rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy, is available now!

WeekendWife FOR WEB

Billionaire businessman in need of a fake fiancée…

It should be the easiest job ever for an out-of-work actress, right?

All I have to do is pose as Grant Caldwell (the Third)’s fiancé for a fancy-pants weekend in the Hamptons. Easy. Wear designer clothing and sip champagne? Don’t mind if I do. Flirting with Grant? It’s so delicious I should be paying him.

Nothing can go wrong as long as I can just keep my hands off of him.

But that’s the hard part. And I do mean hard.

Because Grant is sexy.

And bossy.

And surprisingly sweet, a real rarity in his pretentious family.

Oops. I’m not as good at faking it as I thought. Or maybe they call this method acting. Because it’s getting harder to figure out where my character ends and I begin…

It just might be the role of a lifetime.

Excerpt

I looked at Leah. “Sorry about that. I am not filthy rich.” I actually was, but I felt compelled to be modest. “I’m just rich.”

“Oh, yeah? Well… I think everyone’s definition of filthy is different.”

And just like that, Leah took an awkward moment and made it flirtatious. Her voice was low, breathy.

Green light. That’s what that was. And I was hitting the gas and plowing into the intersection.

I eyed her. “What do you know about filthy?”

I had leaned closer to her, turned slightly, my thigh brushing against the fabric of her skirt. Her lips were a ripe raspberry color and she had a divot in the base of her chin that made me want to kiss it. Her chest rose and fell beneath her tight sweater with a quick rhythm, like she was turned on. Intrigued. Contemplating her move. She opened her mouth, gaze sweeping over my lips, and for a second I thought she was going to move close enough that I could kiss her.

Instead, she held my gaze, all seduction and skill, while her hand shot out and tucked the cash into the breast pocket of my suit. She grinned and turned back to the front, smug.

Damn.

“Nice acting skills,” I told her dryly. Leah, starring in the role of femme fatale, and I’d fallen for it.

“Thanks. I’m working on eye contact.”

I was working on blue balls.

She was cute and clever. Fuck.

I knew a couple of women who wanted exactly what I did—no-strings-attached sex. No one got offended if months went by without contact and it was just as likely they would text me as I would text them. I didn’t get… ensnared. Leah could ensnare me. It might be time to send out a sexual SOS. I needed zero contact with Leah after today. She wasn’t good for my concentration. But I did admire both her boldness and her talent.

“That was savage,” I told her. “I love it.”

“I need a distraction from the fact that my ankle seems to have a heartbeat and half the ice has melted so now my sock is damp.”

Right. Her busted ankle. That was the relevant issue at hand, not my dick.

“You really should elevate your ankle. Turn a little.”

Surprisingly, she obeyed me. I dug my way through all that fabric and hauled her calf and ankle up onto my lap. I also tucked the hundred bucks back into her skirt pocket. She didn’t seem to notice and just cleared her throat.

Leah bit her bottom lip. “This is weird,” she said. “I don’t think you want my damp sock on your pants.”

There were so many things I wanted to say. All of them inappropriate as fuck.

What I settled for was, “Don’t assume what I want.”

New Review: Crossing the Line (Hot Jocks #4) by Kendall Ryan

CTL-banner-NA

CROSSING THE LINE

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: January 2020

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the Book

 

Hello, rock?
Meet hard place.

Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.

But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.

We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.

She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Another smart, sexy read from Kendall Ryan!

I’m always excited when I get to hang out with the Hot Jocks and their ladies again! Now, Bailey and Asher have their chance to tell their story, and what a sexy and funny one it is, complete with some swooning too!

Asher hasn’t had a great few days. He is recovering from a pulled groin and a concussion. He feels like he is letting his team down by being off the ice. There might be a light at the end of the tunnel…a week in California at his family’s beach house celebrating his sassy grandmother’s birthday, not to mention the fact that Bailey will be with him helping nurse him back to health. The two have been friends for a while, but they have never “crossed the line.” However, they discover they have some amazing chemistry between them, and they find themselves closer and closer to crossing that line.

Ryan always comes up with great characters, and this book is no exception. Asher is just adorable, especially with his grandmother and nieces and nephews. He definitely made me swoon several times. When he decides he wants Bailey, I’m not sure how she can hold out for long. 

I love all the girls in the series, but I just ADORE Bailey. She is smart, driven, and independent. She doesn’t need a man, but yet I loved seeing her vulnerable side because of Asher. They really complete each other. 

Ryan also built a fantastic group of secondary characters that really illustrated why Asher is so special. He grew up with some really great women, and I LOVED his grandmother. She, his mother, and his sisters know Bailey and Asher are meant to be together, so I thoroughly loved watching them play matchmaker. 

Crossing the Line is everything I love about Kendall Ryan. She knows how to perfectly combine sweet, sexy, and funny with unforgettable and loveable characters. I will be waiting anxiously for the next time I get to stop in with my guys and girls!!!!

New Review: Seducing Mrs. Robinson by Rachel Van Dyken

SMR - RB banner.jpg

Seducing Mrs. Robinson, an all-new contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken, is LIVE , and it’s a MUST READ!!!!

Copy of SMRobinson_eBook_HighRes.jpg

We’ve all been there, some more than others, you know what I’m talking about, where you have the hots for the new business teacher.

I was one hundred percent that guy. I shamelessly flirted with her my senior year, only earning her irritation more and more. On graduation, I stood up to her husband after he got violent, and I’ll never forget the look in her eyes when she told me it wasn’t my place.

Fast forward to my senior year of college and what do you know, the new adjunct professor is the one and only Mrs. Robinson, she’s eight years older than me and smoking hot. Did I mention divorced?

She looks at me like I’m trouble, and I’m only happy to deliver on that promise. I’m going to show her how a real man treats a woman and use every weapon in my Pleasure Pony arsenal to do it.

Go big or go home.

SMR - AN.jpg




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Seducing Mrs. Robinson is another sweet, steamy, addictive read by the talented Rachel Van Dyken. This one is a part of her Bro Code Standalone series! If you are like me, you will fall in love with Leo and Kora. 

I’m a huge fan of Van Dyken, but she even surprised me with this one. Yes, it is an older woman/younger man romance, but she managed to make this one stand out in the genre. Reading the synopsis, I thought this one might be an easy read. However, both Leo and Kora have been through some tough times in their past. Van Dyken dealt with an emotional issue with sensitivity.  

While the book did address domestic violence, not all of it was dark. Van Dyken managed to spread some light and humor throughout the book. I loved the banter between Leo and Kora; it really added to their already electric chemistry. 

Leo and Kora were great characters, people I would want to count as my friends. Leo is confident without coming across as too arrogant. He is so much more underneath that sexy exterior…smart, kind, and patient, especially with Kora. Because of her past, Kora completely underestimated who she was. She believed the lies her husband told her. To see her come back to life with Leo and his friends’ help was something truly beautiful. No other couple is more perfect for each other than Leo and Kora.

If you are looking for a quick romance with the feels, you can’t go wrong with this one!
