BANNER-ReleaseDay.jpg

The Varlet and the Voyeur, an all-new standalone in the USA Today bestselling Rugby Series from Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway is LIVE!

Cover.jpg

He kept his salacious secret for years. But soon, everyone is going to be reading about it in their morning paper…

THE VARLET (and the VOYEUR)

William Moore is a long way from home. A farm boy from Oklahoma, he’s now the most well-respected member of the Irish rugby team. But appearances are often deceptive, and Will isn’t the clean-cut, all-American good-guy everyone imagines him to be. He’s got a secret, one that will tarnish his reputation forever.

THE VOYEUR (and the VARLET)

Joesy Kavanagh is a self-proclaimed mess, but she’s finally get her shi…uh, act together. She’s set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there’s one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Joesy homeless and in need of a job to pay her way through college.

THE PLAN

What he needs is a companion to keep him on the right path.

What she needs is an apartment with free rent.

Will is convinced Joesy will make the perfect companion, since she’s brutally honest and basically ‘just one of the guys.’ Joesy is convinced she can ensure Will doesn’t succumb to his voyeuristic proclivities by keeping a scrupulous eye on him.

Except, what happens when the varlet is tempted by the voyeur, and vice-versa?!

Perchance something very, very volatile. And vexing.

The Varlet and the Voyeur is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the 4th(and last) book in the USA TODAY bestselling Rugby Series.

The Spook in the Stacks: A Lighthouse Library Mystery
by Eva Gates

About the Book

The Spook in the Stacks: A Lighthouse Library Mystery
Cozy Mystery
4th in Series
Crooked Lane Books (June 12, 2018)
Hardcover: 250 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-1683315803
Digital ASIN: B075QJ59PX

Halloween in North Carolina’s Outer Banks becomes seriously tricky when librarian Lucy Richardson stumbles across something extra unusual in the rare books section: a dead body.

Wealthy businessman Jay Ruddle is considering donating his extensive collection of North Carolina historical documents to the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library, but the competition for the collection is fierce. Unfortunately, while the library is hosting a lecture on ghostly legends, Jay becomes one of the dearly departed in the rare books section. Now, it’s up to Lucy Richardson and her fellow librarians to bone up on their detective skills and discover who is responsible for this wicked Halloween homicide.

Meanwhile, very strange things are happening at the library―haunted horses are materializing in the marsh, the lights seem to have an eerie life of their own, and the tiny crew of a model ship appears to move around when no one is watching. Is Lucy at her wit’s end? Or can it be that the Bodie Island Lighthouse really is haunted?

With The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on everyone’s minds and ghoulish gossip on everyone’s lips, Lucy will need to separate the clues from the boos if she wants to crack this case without losing her head in The Spook in the Stacks, the delightful fourth in national bestseller Eva Gates’ Lighthouse Library mysteries.

Christie’s Review

5 Stars

I love a good cozy mystery with great characters, a good storyline that keeps me guessing, and a beautiful setting! Eva Gates gave me all of that and more!

The book opens with the staff getting ready for Halloween and a wealthy businessman, Jay Ruddle, is seriously considering donating his historical documents to the library. However, the library is just one place he is considering, so the competition is FIERCE! Things take a turn for the worse when Jay is found by Lucy in the rare books section. Lucy finds herself in the midst of another mystery to solve.

There is no shortage of suspects. Gates gives just enough about each one to keep me guessing. I would think I had it figured out, and she would throw a twist in that would have me guessing again. The Halloween theme and the strange, mysterious things happening just added even more to the book.

Characters are always such a driving force in a book for me. Gates has really created some great characters who have many levels. I admire the relationship they all have with one another, especially Lucy and her friends. Oh, I loved Charles, the library cat! He was the best!!!!

I have always wanted to go to the Outer Banks, and Eva Gates has made me want to go even more. The setting is beautiful. She writes in such a descriptive way that I found myself right there in the story as well. The icing on the cake for me is The Bodie Lighthouse is a real working lighthouse, not a library as she indicates in her note at the end of the book. Yes, Eva Gates your writing helped it all come alive in my imagination. I can’t wait to take my next journey with the next book!!!!

*****************************************************

Interview with Lucy

Lucy, do you and your friends fear for your lives at times because you all are uncovering murderers?

I guess it’s only after it’s all over that I think, “oh, my goodness. That might not have been such a good idea.” Maybe I’m so focused on trying to do the right thing that I forget I’m putting myself into danger. My friends do try to warn me, though. I don’t think my boyfriend is all that happy with my attempts at detecting. Detective Sam Watson certainly isn’t.  But what else can I do?

If you weren’t a librarian, what other career would you choose?

I’d definitely want to do something with books. So maybe I’d like to work for a publisher. I’d love to read new submissions, and hopefully discover somethings new and exciting.

Since you are surrounded by books, what are your favorite genres to read?

I read a lot of classic novels, because I run the Bodie Island Lighthouse Library Classic Novel Reading Club. This month we’re reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and other works by Washington Irving to get us in the mood for Halloween. In my own time, when I have some, I have a weakness for cozy mysteries. Nothing better than curling up with a good book in the window seat in my Lighthouse Aerie or taking with me for an afternoon at the beach.

If you could live anywhere besides the Outer Banks where would it be?

I have to say: Nowhere! I’ve chosen to live near Nags Head because it’s my favorite place in the world. I’m actually from Boston, and I lived in Boston all my life until less than a year ago.

Who are your favorite writers?

For cozies, I love Kate Carlisle or Jenn McKinlay. I also like modern gothic suspense such as written by Kate Morton or Simone St. James.

Whiskey Reveals (Whiskey and Lies #2) by Carrie Ann Ryan Blog Tour with Excerpt

About WHISKEY REVEALS (Whiskey and Lies #2)

One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey-this time for good-he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.

Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.

Each book is a complete stand alone and can be read in any order.

EXCERPT:

Melody was so busy in her head, that she didn’t notice the man in front of her and slammed right into his very sweaty, very hard body.

She gripped his arms, his thigh going right between her legs as she pressed into him and looked up.

“Fox.” She practically breathed the word, her pulse racing. Of course, she would run into Fox at his brother’s gym. Of course, she would be clinging to him like a heroine in one of her favorite romance novels, her fingers digging into his biceps. Of course, his thigh would be pressed firmly against her crotch enough so he could probably feel the heat of her as she pulsated just from touching him— the day after they’d both promised each other they would just remain friends. Because this was Melody, and this was her life. What else could happen in a town named Whiskey with a man she’d had far too much whiskey with? “

Melody.” His voice came out more like a growl than an actual word, and he cleared his throat. “Melody, shit, I didn’t see you. Did I hurt you?”

She hadn’t let go of his arms, but he hadn’t moved away from her either. She was aware that there were other people in the gym, but she knew they weren’t looking at them. They were focused on their workouts and not the two of them clinging to each other as if they couldn’t get enough.

And because she thought that particular thought, she let go of him and backed away. Her inner thighs missed Fox’s touch immediately, but she ignored her traitorous lady parts and their needs and desires.

Damn them anyway. They always got her into trouble.

“I’m fine, and I’m the one who ran into you anyway.” She swallowed hard, doing her best not to think about how exactly he’d felt pressed up against her. He fit far too perfectly, and she hoped the fact that she couldn’t stop thinking about it was because she was hyped up for the gym.

And in terms of rationalizations, she’d just reached a new level.

He frowned. “If you’re sure.” He reached out as if to touch her before lowering his hand. For two people who had vowed to try and be friends, they were acting far too awkward for their promises to be of any consequence.

“I am. So, I guess you come here often?”

If there were a sinkhole for her to fall into, she’d look for it because, dear God, what was wrong with her?

About WHISKEY SECRETS (Whiskey and Lies #1)

Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.

Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

An heiress without a cause.
Two billionaires determined to claim her.
And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.

A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy. Instead he protects me with fierce determination.

Excerpt:

My body heats at the words, at the remembered pleasure of Sutton’s mouth on my sex. Christopher looks down at me, as if he can feel the heat emanating from between my legs. His expression turns stark, as if he’s in pain. That’s only fair, because I’m in pain too.

“You deserve better than that,” Christopher says, but there’s no way to pretend he’s talking about Sutton. He’s talking about himself and we both know it.

“He gives me what I want, which is something you might try next time you like a girl.”

“It wasn’t that,” he says, harsh again.

“No?” I step forward and place a hand on his chest, feeling the way his heart beats strong and fast. He may want to be unaffected by me, but he isn’t. I tilt my face up toward him.“You didn’t imagine me naked in the cabin later?”

He sucks in a breath.“You were too young then.”

My words come out as a whisper.“What about now? Will you do what Sutton said—imagine me in this dress when you go home after this?”

“It’s not fucking decent,” he says, even though the silk covers every part of me. It’s a perfectly respectable dress, when it’s not hitched up around my waist.

“You can thank Sutton for this,” I say, because it’s true. He’s the only reason I lean forward and place my lips against Christopher’s, touching them in some terrible attempt to show him what he gave up, to prove to myself that I don’t care about either of them.

Christopher sucks in a breath. For a second I think he’s going to pull away. He stiffens and grasps my hair with his fist. Easy enough for him to stop the kiss. Instead he dips my head back and deepens it, exploring my mouth with his teeth, his tongue. Opening me wider until I whimper. Pulling me close until I can feel how hard he is beneath his slacks.

His other hand fists in the gauze of my dress, and I realize he’s holding me with both hands clenched—one in my hair and one in my clothes. I don’t know whether he’s doing it so he doesn’t have to touch me or because it’s a way to control me without bruising me. He uses both hands to tug me closer; I’m pressed so tightly I can’t imagine getting away.

Where Sutton had been raw sensuality and playfulness, Christopher is pure determination. He kisses me like he’s a conquering army, like I’m made of gold he has to grasp—or lose forever.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Wow!!! What a read!!!! When I read the synopsis, I knew it was going to be a good read, but it far surpassed anything I was expecting.

Bell is a cocktail waitress working in a casino trying to forget the horrific event that happened during her childhood that changed her forever. She thinks she is doing pretty good. She has great friends and a great job. She controls her own emotions and relationships with men, never giving her heart to ANYONE! When she lays eyes on Dario Capece one night, everything changes!

Dario is rich, and he has worked hard to be the success he is. He has a wife, Gwen, but they have an arrangement. She sees who she wants and so does he, but it’s discreet. They always promised to never leave the other, but when he sees Bell, life for him is getting ready to become EXTREMELY COMPLICATED!

This is a book that kept my interest from the very beginning, not only the storyline but the characters as well. Both stand out in the book. It is told from several POVs which makes it even more interesting. I felt for all three main characters, Bell, Dario, and Gwen, Dario’s wife. All three have led really hard lives, and Gwen and Bell have suffered things no person should ever have to endure. Torre has given her readers three very complex and multi-layered characters.

This is not just a romance, but it full of betrayals, secrets, action, and an evil villian. Parts had me on the edge of my seat because I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. You will know what I mean the deeper you get into the book. It does end in one heck of a cliffhanger, but never fear, the sequel is releasing very soon. I’m a certainly looking forward to it.

Save the Date by Carrie Aarons Cover Reveal

 

 

Title: Save the Date
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

Release Date: June 24, 2018
Blurb
You know that pact you make with your childhood best
friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely
and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?
This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to
make good on that pinky promise.

Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well,
you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at
backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.

But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for
years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a
really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.

He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart
is starting to cave. For my best friend.

It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But
when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re
standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to
walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

TEMPTING THE LAIRD Synopsis:

Mystery and desire cloak the Scottish Highlands

Unruly. Unmarried. Unapologetic. Catriona Mackenzie’s reputation precedes her everywhere she goes.

Never one to retreat, Cat boldly goes where no one else has dared for answers.

Shrouded in secrets, a hostage of lies, Hamlin must endure the fear and suspicion of those who believe he is a murderer. The sudden disappearance of his wife and the truth he keeps silent are a risk to his chances at earning a coveted parliamentary seat. But he’s kept his affairs tightly held until a woman with sparkling eyes and brazen determination appears unexpectedly in his life.

High school teacher Emma Lovett is finally recovering from her first year of teaching when she discovers another dead body. As if that wasn’t bad enough, this time, someone has killed a student, Kisten Hollis.

Emma and her best friend, Leslie, are desperate to solve this murder. But suspects abound. The perpetrator could be a teacher, an administrator, a member of Kisten’s zealous church community, or even another student.

Emma must juggle her teaching responsibilities, her new romance with handsome Hunter Wells, and interest from a hunky second suitor, all while searching for evidence to bring a killer to justice before someone else dies.

Christie’s Review

5 Stars

Poison by Punctuation by Kelley Kaye is a witty and often humorous cozy mystery with great characters!

Emma Lovett has had an eventful first year teaching in a new town. Just as things are settling down for her, complete with a new love interest, another murder occurs. This time it’s a student, so Emma is determined to find the killer to bring him or her to justice!

Kaye gives her readers lots of twists and turns to keep us guessing. The characters, even the secondary ones, are quirky and memorable. I loved that each chapter was a quote from Shakespeare and how it went along very well with each chapter. My favorite aspect about the book is that it was a mystery yet was quite funny which made the story even better. Within the pages of the book, Kaye touches on a bigger problem within our society, especially in schools….bullying. I absolutely love a book that not only entertains me yet takes on an issue and teaches me something new about it. Kaye did exactly this.

I’m really loving this series, and I’m looking forward to the next book!!!

Character Interview with Emma

Emma speaks

What do you like best about your move to Colorado?

Originally, I just wanted to get as far away from Holly Hill and my philandering Ex husband as possible. So I meandered west on the map, until I came to this little town called Pinewood. When I researched it, it seemed like a fantastic combination of lakes and mountains and trees and all four seasons, and everything I was looking for. I love it—it’s a great town, in every single way exceptin’ mosquitoesand of course those fling-flangin’ murders!

 

What do you like best about being a high school teacher?

First, I’ve always loved books. My daddy owned a little book store in Holly Hill he called ‘Buy the Book’—get it? He never did things ‘by the book’ himself, but he loved puns and wordplay, so… Anyway, there’s that, and then I had an English teacher named Mr. Kinney. I always did well in school, y’know, but I felt lost when they started talking symbolism and theme and those big, important ideas about books. So Mr. Kinney started out explaining some of those big ideas for different poems or stories—and I’d get it by the time he was finished! Eventually I started being able to figure things out without Mr. Kinney, but I knew it was his patience that got me there. I wanted to be able to help other people get there too, y’know? And with Books and Love of Language as favorite things, because I got that from Daddy, English teacher seemed like the best fit. Now that I’m finished with my second year of teaching, I love the students best, and trying to help them get to the point where they can recognize and analyze those “big, important ideas” for themselves. It’s intoxicating to see them experience that ‘lightbulb moment!!

 

What do you like least about being a high school teacher?

Well. If I say “those two big P’s—Parents and Politics” are my least favorite things, know that I’m not talking about all parents—just a very few, the ones my friend Leslie calls the “My Parents Can Do No Wrong” corps. Those few make it difficult to teach an adolescent to learn from her/his mistakes—because adolescents—just like all people—make mistakes, right? and those few parents (just a few, mind you!) don’t recognize that fact about their teenagers. The frustration makes me feel helpless, like a moth in a mitten! And as far as politics—I guess that happens in every job, right!? But I don’t like it. Not in the least. I just want to spend my time teaching my kids.

 

Is it hard to trust your new love interest after what happened with you ex? 

I think it’s so, so interesting, but it’s not! Even after we suspected him of MELVIN’S murder for a while, once I really got to know Hunter, I knew he was exactly what he says he is. What you see is what you get

with that man, and that’s exactly what I needed to find after Ronald shattered my young heart. I have to give some credit to my poor deceased daddy on this front, too. He might’ve had a vision whose britches were too big for his ambitions, but he was always, always trustworthy and straightforward, so I knew there were guys like that out there!

 

Do you ever get scared since a staff member was murdered and now a student was murdered?

I absolutely do. After I almost got killed when I was investigatin’ Melvin’s murder, Hunter got me this pink stun gun I’m supposed to have with me all the time. But sometimes my curiosity’s britches get too big for my common sense, and that’s when I get myself into trouble! If anyone out there has an idea to help me control this impulsivity issue I’ve fallen prey to, please let me know before I REALLY get myself into a pickle

The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young Excerpt Reveal

 

 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Impossible Vastness of Us and the On Dublin Street series comes a heartfelt and beautiful new young adult novel, set in Scotland, about daring to dream and embracing who you are. Don’t miss THE FRAGILE ORDINARY releasing on June 26, 2018, and get a sneak peek of the book below!

 

 

About THE FRAGILE ORDINARY:

I am Comet Caldwell.

And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name.

People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she’ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky.

But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away.

When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet. Targeted by bullies and thrown into the spotlight, Comet and Tobias can go their separate ways…or take a risk on something extraordinary.

“Endearing and relatable, Comet-the girl who is searching for her place in this world-will shoot through the sky and into your heart.”

— #1 New York Times bestselling author Erin Watt


 

 

 

 

EXCERPT:

Hearing and feeling Tobias’s heart beat beneath my cheek was the most wonderful feeling in the world. Despite my worry for him and for Stevie, I couldn’t help but feel happy as the boy I loved slept in my bed with his arm around me.

The morning sun woke him around nine in the morning. He groaned and then grew still, maybe realizing I was curled up against him. For a moment I tensed, fearing he was going to regret everything he’d said last night.

Instead he trailed his fingers down my arm. “You awake?” his voice rumbled above me.

I smiled, liking the tingles that bubbled and fizzed in certain parts of my body at the mere sound of his voice. “Yeah.”

“What time is it?”

I told him.

“Crap.”

“What?” I asked, sitting up as he reached across the bed to where his phone lay on the bedside table.

“Stevie and my mom.” He cursed again as he flicked the screen. “They’ve texted and called a bunch of times. I better call my mom back first before she calls the police or something.” He pressed the screen and held the phone to his ear. “Mom,” he said almost immediately. “I’m fine.” Tobias scowled. “I’m a big boy…no…no, I didn’t…I’m with Comet…” Streaks of color appeared high on his cheeks, surprising me. Tobias rarely got embarrassed. “No, we just fell asleep…yeah…I’m on my way.” He hung up and gave me an apologetic look. “I have to go.”

At his beleaguered tone, I placed a reassuring hand on his arm. “She’s your mum. It would be weird if she wasn’t worried you didn’t come home.”

“Yeah, whatever.” He shook his head and got off the bed, leaving me to frown at him.

Tobias seemed to be in a continually bad mood with his mother. I wish I had the guts to tell him to talk to her about why he was so mad, but I didn’t want to push too hard too soon on such a delicate subject.

“I’ll go appease her,” he said, slipping his trainers on. “Then come back?”

I opened my mouth to agree and then remembered my promise from the night before. “I’m going over to Vicki’s this morning.”

“Right. How about I meet you outside the Espy around three o’ clock?”

Relieved and delighted that he not only didn’t regret saying what he had last night but that he wanted to see me again so soon, I grinned and got off the bed. Tobias gave me that boyish smile of his and I reached for his hand, needing to touch him.

He squeezed mine, a solemnity entering his gaze. “I want to invite Stevie to meet us. I’m hoping that together we can talk him out of this bullshit. When it was just me I wasn’t getting anywhere, but he cares about you. Maybe he’ll listen.”

I nodded, loving him even more for wanting to help his cousin. “Definitely. If we let him know we’re here to help him through everything with his mum but that we can only do that if he walks away from Dean and the drugs…maybe he’ll see sense.”

I hoped.

Tobias hoped, too. I could see the turmoil in his eyes and I wanted desperately to be able to take it away.

It was as I was leading him from my bedroom to the front door that I heard the hallway floor creak behind us. I turned ever so slightly, catching sight of my dad in my peripheral. Ignoring him I hugged Tobias goodbye and waved him off down the garden path. I closed the door and turned to face my father. He stood frowning at me in his pajamas, a cup of coffee in one hand, a piece of toast in the other.

“Did that boy stay over?” he asked, sounding incredulous.

His tone suggested I’d done something wrong. I stiffened. “Yes.”

Dad took a step toward me, glowering now. “Don’t you think that’s something you should run past us first? You’re only sixteen, Comet.”

“Almost seventeen.” I bristled. How dare he suddenly play the parental card! Just when I was happy and didn’t need him, he wanted to stick his nose in where it was not wanted! A fire lit inside me and swept out of me before I could control it. “And let’s not play the concerned parent act, Kyle.” I strode toward my bedroom and shoved open the door. “You don’t get to decide which parts of my life you want to take an interest in. Having a kid? Kind of an all-or-nothing deal.” I stepped inside, gripping the door in my hand as I sneered at him. “You decided long ago it was nothing for you. No changing your mind now.” And with that I slammed the door in his shocked face.
