How can one small-minded, angry person destroy the lives of so many people in her path, connecting them all together in a game of destruction and heartbreak? It is possible, but what pushes a person to enjoy inflicting pain to such an extent, leaving a trail of hate, anger, and defeat behind her, which only seems to make her stronger and more satisfied. Ms. Terri Plotski, owner of the Authors’ Book Agency, is that person, who, unknowingly, with a single thread of hate, has connected the lives of a small group of people, bringing them together with one single common denominator. Anger. The anger from this small group of people is building, but it has nowhere to go, or does it? Ms. Terri Plotski, owner of Authors’ Book Agency, has gone missing.

Blownup in Paradise Book by Deborah Brown

NEW RELEASE….
I’ve come a long way since inheriting my Aunt Elizabeth’s Tarpon Cove house and her beach cottages full of quirky residents. I strap a Glock to my thigh as easily as I slip into flip-flops.

Even Fab is going legit… mostly. When she’s hired to investigate some high-end boat thefts in Biscayne Bay, I go along to do what I do best. Chat up the help to get the real story.

Neither of us expected the case to explode—literally—and take out one of Miami’s richest men. And possibly a mistress, though no one’s found her body floating among the bits and pieces.

Somewhere in the Miami upper-crust’s phony smiles and even phonier alibis there’s someone who wanted to see Marshall Sacks dead. Someone willing to ruin Fab’s and my lives to keep their secret. It’ll take calling in every favor I’m owed to keep us out of trouble.

I rated this book 5 *****’s

My favorite among the Paradise series 

I so loved this story. Maddie and Fabiana never stop to amaze me with their friendship, adventures and their love life. Creole and Maddie is always my favorite couple. I was waiting for forever for these two and finally it happened. I cannot wait for their next adventure together. 

This book is full of twist laughter and above all swoon worthy. This book is hard to put it down. Love is worth fighting for. These two hot guys will do everything to protect their women though their women are both stubborn and fearless. 

My favorite among the series and am I looking forward for their happy forever after.


The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they’re like chips…you won’t be able to devour just one!”

About the Author


I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Dear Broken Heart ~

You must be hurting deeply. Perhaps you’re also feeling overwhelmed and completely alone in this place of emptiness and grief. I’ve been where you are and my heart aches with yours. I want you to know there is someone who sees and someone who cares. His name is Jesus. The journey right now is dark and painful, but if you will travel with me using God’s word as our guide, it will eventually lead to a place of hope and restoration. A destination where God’s love ushers you into wholeness. Where His healing hand won’t just repair your shattered soul, but will establish you in the truth that you are deeply loved and understood. In contrast to your current sorrow, this may seem too good to be true. I get that, I’ve been there. At this point, I’m only asking you to trust that He is able. I invite you to spend these next six weeks at the feet of Jesus and allow Him to enter into your wounded heart through this very place of brokenness. Will you give Him permission to transform you in a way that far exceeds your own expectations?

~ Colleen Meissner Married for the first time at 42. Colleen knows firsthand the pain of heartbreak, being single longer than expected, and the battle against fear and insecurity. She holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and has spent over 10 years sharing her own experience and knowledge as a coach and mentor.

Meet the Author:

 

I earned a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 and have been mentoring women for over a decade. The most common area of counsel I provide is to single women not ashamed to admit they want to be married and have someone to share their life with. These women often without realizing it, are battling soul wounds (emotional and heart wounds) from their past that are preventing them from fulfilling this deeply held desire of marriage and family.

I consider there to be no greater privilege than to have women trust me with their deepest struggles and fears and to travel along side of them on their journey from a place of being held in bondage by lies (“I am fat, ugly, a loser, unlovable…”) to a place of freedom and victory. I know this journey well, I have traveled it; it is hard and it is long, and you cannot do it alone. There are seemingly impossible hills to climb, valleys to crawl out of and side-roads leading to nowhere. Perhaps more than a mentor, I am a tour-guide, leading you as you navigate your way to healing and overcoming those things that have kept you from embracing the fullness of life that the Lord came to give you (John 10:10).

Anything For Love Book by Melissa Foster

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
NEW RELEASE……..
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster’s writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

In Anything For Love….
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before ping in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa’s Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so pe right into this fun, sexy romance.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

I rated this book 5 *****’s

Sexy, hilarious and emotional read 

I so loved and enjoyed reading Charlotte and Beau’s love story. This is such a beautiful story to read. It is so sexy, hilarious and emotional read. It has the family love and friendship. Beau not only an eye sore, workaholic but will blow your mind away. He is the sweetest guy that will make his woman happy even doing little things for her. I hope this guy is real. Many women will make him boyfriend of the year.

I loved the setting too. I bet if this location existed, it is beyond gorgeous. 

Love is so powerful. Charlotte heals Beau’s broken heart. She is not only as sweet as Twix that melt in your mouth but your heart too. This woman is simply beautiful. She will not only put a hole in your underwear but will laugh out loud with her writing. This book is a must read for me.

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]

Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.


Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.


Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

TRAILS OF LOVE – Releasing January 9th, 2019
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]

When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed’s new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace’s sister Morgyn’s business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn’t ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

3 Ways the Internet Is an Invaluable Resource for Book Lovers

Do you remember the days of going into the local book shop to read the jackets of the latest books on the best seller list? While some had authors you followed religiously, others were new writers who caught your attention. You’d spend hours reading jackets while adding and subtracting from the pile that was growing on the table where you sat to scan the books you were interested in.

 

Royal Free Photo 

Even though you will still find those who are happy to spend an afternoon in Barnes & Noble, Borders, Waldenbooks or Books-a-Million, all the evidence points to the fact that those who shop for new books online by far outnumber those who visit brick-and-mortar shops. Why do you think that is? It could be the following 3 ways the Internet has become an invaluable resource for book lovers.

1. Social Media

From Facebook to Instagram, you won’t find a social platform that doesn’t have a plethora of pages dedicated to literature. Even YouTube, the second largest social network, has channels dedicated to the various genres and if you are lucky, you can even find authors reading excerpts from their latest books or explaining how the inspiration for the book came about. Even your own group of online ‘friends’ will share their latest literary finds and if you think this isn’t one of the key ways in which book lovers find new reading material, you may be among the few yet to create a social profile!

2. Blogs and Reviews

Then you will find blogs for book lovers so that you can see what others are saying about the latest releases from your favorite authors. In fact, you can even use the search engines to find blogs and reviews for book lovers if you can’t make up your mind whether or not to buy a book that has caught your attention. Many people find that they are more likely to buy a book based on what others are saying as opposed to the Madison Avenue marketing hype which almost always leads them astray. Most blogs and reviews offer a place where you can ask questions in the “Comments” section and this can tip the scales if you are yet undecided on any given book or new author.

3. Digital Books for Instant Download

It would seem that technology would leave us with more time on our hands, but unfortunately, that is often not the case! Even though we are living life in the fast lane, it’s like going through life in rush hour where traffic is jammed for hours on end. One of the real benefits of the Internet as a resource for book lovers is the availability for instant download on almost any book in print. Older books may not yet have been transcribed, but for at least a decade, any new book was published in the digital realm. Even authors now upload chapters of books to their publishers in digital format rather than posting hard copies as in days of old.
No matter where you happen to be at any given moment, the Internet makes it possible to find, buy, and read the latest books by your favorite authors. Are you still wondering how the Internet is an invaluable resource for book lovers? If so, it’s time to check out the Kindle app and Kindle e-books on Amazon. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and in the case of the Internet, that insatiable hunger for reading is rewarded with instant gratification.
