Only For You (Sugar Lake Book 2) Book By Melissa Foster

NEW RELEASE……..

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…

Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.

Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.

But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

Give me some sugar please

This book is sweetness overload. I think the sweetest book I ever read from Ms. Melissa Foster. Louie will put you too much calories on you. This kid is not only the cutest but cannot help but will melt your heart like snowman in a sunny day.

This book is emotional as well beyond the hotness. I loved reading every chapters of this book. Honestly, I do not want it to finish reading the book. Bodhi and Bridgette connection is instant. These two is protective not only with their hearts but emotions as well. They are my new favorite couple of this new series.

I am looking forward for the next book of this series.

The Real Thing (Sugar Lake Book 1)
Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker.

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

Mariah Easter wakes up in the middle of the night to discover the world is as bright as noon—but for her eyes only.

This compelling and inspirational tale, the third installment of the Avian Series, invites the reader to ponder the extraordinary treasures hidden in the ordinary events of daily life.

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

Life is so mysterious

This book is beyond unbelievable. It is a unique read which will keep you in awe. Life is so mysterious. There are magic or situation that is unbelievably to explain. I believe those moments when it happens.

Those powers I wish I have  and am sure it is beyond ordinary. This is a sweet book to read. If you believe in extra ordinary things, then you will love reading this book.  Mariah, inspired me to start writing a journal especially that I am traveling soon. We should write memories just like Mariah.

This book is also about friendship, family and love. We should follow our instincts too. Angels surround us wherever we are. It could be in different forms and we just them. They are mysterious.

Meet the Author: 

 

Nancy Schoellkopf is the author of the Avian Series of novels including Yellow-Billed Magpie and Red-Tailed Hawk, as well as the short story collection Rover and Other Magical Tales. She has been telling stories and writing poems for many lifetimes. It goes without saying that she’s needed a second income, so this time around she happily taught amazing children in special education classes in two urban school districts in Sacramento, California. A full time writer now, she enjoys lavishing attention on her cats, her garden and her intriguing circle of family and friends.

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always loved stories.  I remember my mother reading me Peter Pan when I was very small.  I fell in love with magic and I fell in love with stories.

How did you get the idea for Ghost Owl?

I woke up one night and noticed light coming through the curtains.  I got up and looked out.  Even though it was three AM, everything in the yard could be seen distinctly.  The world did not look as it did to Mariah in Ghost Owl, but it was surprising.  I realized later that it was an overcast evening and the street lights were reflecting off the clouds, making the world visible in the darkness.  No magic, but it got me thinking of a story for Mariah:  exploring the shadow side of her city, the vulnerabilities of her family and the dark side of her own nature.

If you were stuck on a desert island, what books would you want with you?

If there’s a book by Margaret Atwood or Barbara Kingsolver I haven’t read yet, that’s the one I’d choose!  I’d also need Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes; I could read that over and over again.  A few volumes of poetry by Mary Oliver and Sharon Olds would also be nice.

And what about food on that island?  What would you like to eat?

I think I would be happy living on peanut butter and dark chocolate.  But for variety I hope that island has oranges in winter and peaches in summer.

What’s your next project?

We live in a time of great divisiveness, so I’ve been praying for an open heart.  I’ve begun to envision an anthology of essays and poetry on the theme of how to have an open heart in crazy times.  Watch for a call for material!

Christmas in Paradise Book by Deborah Brown (Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 13)

COMING SOON….

My name is Madison Westin. Unless it’s Christmas, in which case my official title is “Holiday Cheermistress.” Nothing stops me from getting my ho-ho-ho on, not even my friends’ Grinch-worthy attitude toward sparkling tinsel, twinkling lights, and tinkling bells.

Hey, if Creole, Fab, and Didier wind up with coal in their stockings, it won’t be my fault.

When some bah-humbug bandit makes the rounds of Tarpon Cove, Fab and I are on the case. It’s the least we can do for our loyal friends. Seasonal crime-victim disorder seems to be on the rise.

Some guy in a Santa suit—well, the top half of one anyway—is robbing local banks. The cops are fingering the wrong guy. And you can bet your light-up Rudolph boxers that if we can’t track the real thief down, one of my merry band of miscreants could be spending the holidays behind bars.

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!”

Amazon   Paperback

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

Funny and festive 

This is a short book from one of my favorite author Ms. Deborah Brown. Christmas in Paradise is funny and festive. All the chaos you can imagine during the holiday will keep you entertain while reading this book.

The sisters not from blood but by heart Madison and Fab with their hunk boyfriends entertained us again with another story. This book is full of family love, laugh out loud moments and a little scary. These two wild women who have no fears became the hero of this story. I am so glad that one of the couple made me excited about their future.

Ms. Deborah Brown never failed to show us some love not only from the warm weather in Florida which I always envy but her writing is phenomenal as always. This book might be short story but the action never stops.

I am looking forward to read another book from this series. This book is a fun holiday book to read not only in the beach but if you needed a moment to enjoy by yourself or even with girlfriends.

“South Florida author Deborah Brown books are infectious.

“My love for these quirky characters grows with every book! Hope they never end!”

“This fabulous duo exudes so much sassiness and strong willed characteristics that I absolutely cannot get enough of.

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.

Finally More by Rachel De Lune Cover Reveal

Book: Finally More
Author: Rachel De Lune
Genre: Contemporary RomanceRelease Date: 8th January 2018

#FinallyMoreCR

Synopsis

Love can be found in the strangest of places.

Natasha Devlin, the Mistress that rules the playrooms at Solace, and the men or women she dominates, doesn’t need love or relationships outside the walls of her fortress. She’d witnessed her fellow Doms fall in love. That wasn’t her scene.
Aiden Morgan has two priorities in his life. Dedicating his time to visiting at the Alzheimer’s home that cares for his Grandad, and to his one other love, painting. But things change when he meets a stunningly beautiful older woman.

For the first time in years, a simple friendship excites Natasha. It’s new and fresh and free from the responsibilities that have bound her life. Of course, the sizzling chemistry between her and Aiden helps. Introducing Aiden to the BDSM world she lives in would be a risk, but one she can’t pass up.

Rachel De Lune writes emotionally driven erotic romance. She began scribbling her stories in the pages of a notebook several years ago. Today she’s still scribbling stories of dominance and submission and creating Happily Ever Afters.

Rachel lives in the South West of England and daydreams about shoes, lingerie and chocolate, in-between being a mum and a wife. She would love to give up her day job to devote more time to her scribbles.  For every woman who’s ever desired more. www.racheldelune.com

Her Christmas Chance by Rachelle Ayala (A Christmas Creek Romance Book 2)

NEW RELEASE….
Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?

Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.

It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.

Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.

When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.

Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?

Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

I rated this book 5 *****’s
 
 
I liked the voice of the narrator. My very first time to listen to her voice. She did an amazing job narrating this one heart-warming book. I liked the voice the most when she is talking as Bella. She nailed it and cannot wait to listen to more of her books.
 
 
I have not listened to her other performance. This book is my very first time to listen to her book and it sounded so beautiful.
 
Ms. Rachelle Ayala’s book is always a fun to read. It makes you laugh and most of all will touch your heart. She write heroines that will blow your mind. She adds animals that also that make the story even more meaningful. Love is always powerful. It does not matter if you have special needs or a normal person. Love is kind and Chance has that in him despite of his past. This book is one of a kind and loved every moment of it.
Her Christmas Chance book is one of a kind and a very special book to listen and of course read.Audiobook also available

Opposites attract and sparks fly in the delightful small town of Christmas Creek.

Holly Jolly lives for Christmas. It’s the only time of the year, as far as she’s concerned. 

Gordon Gills doesn’t need a reason to hate the holiday season. He doesn’t see the point. 

Gordon returns to the mansion he inherited and finds Holly making a mess with her Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, his great-aunt’s will stipulates that he must make merry every Christmas if he wants to keep his inheritance. 

Holly is determined to infect the grouchy Gordon with every dose of Christmas cheer she can muster and show him what Christmas is really about. 

Will Gordon prevail and turn Holly into a Grinch, or will a sprinkling of Christmas magic show Gordon that there’s no fighting love, especially when it’s wrapped up in a gorgeous redheaded package of jolly holly?
