EMBRACING HER HEART by Melissa Foster ★★★★★ AVAILABLE NOW!



BOOK INFORMATION
Embracing Her Heart 
The Bradens and Montgomerys
(Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls) – Book 1
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing April 17, 2018 World Literary Press


BOOK SUMMARY
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…

CAT'S REVIEW


EMBRACING HER HEART by Melissa Foster.  This is Grace and Reed's tale and what a tale it is!  Grace is a strong, independent woman but when she bumps into Reed, her first love, her vulnerability comes through.  Reed, what a swoon worthy guy.  He stole my heart.  Together, they are one of my all time favorite couples - and that is saying a lot.  I loved following along as they journeyed the path together to find happiness.  The secondary characters bring much life to the tale as well, and I certainly hope Ms. Foster sees to writing their stories soon too.  EMBRACING HER HEART is a contemporary romance that made my heart sing - I can't wait to read it again!  (received ARC for honest review)

ANONYMOUS by L.P. Dover COVER REVEAL!!




Title: Anonymous
Standalone
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Regina Wamba
Release Date: April 23, 2018



Blurb

Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished. My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.
I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.
31773
It’s someone from my past, only they won’t to tell me who they are, but that by talking to them, I’ll figure it out. It’s a game I refuse to play. Unfortunately, I’m left with no choice when things begin to take a dangerous turn. His name is Anonymous and there’s only one thing he wants … ME.

Excerpt

It’s closing time and Vikki and I are busy cleaning, so we can get home. My phone beeps with an incoming text and I look down at it and growl. “You can’t be serious.” Staring back at me isn’t a text from Jake, but from Anonymous. Even though I deleted and blocked the number ninety days ago, I still recognize it.
Vikki moves closer, her eyes wide. “What’s going on?”
I show her the text.
Anonymous: 31773?
Brows furrowed, she sits back. “What does that mean?” I turn my phone upside down, so she can see that the number spells out my name. Her eyes widen. “Wow, that’s cool you can type your name with numbers.”
“But not so cool when I don’t know who the person is,” I counter. “About three months ago, I got texts from this exact same person. Whoever it is likes to play games. I’m sick of it and I want them to leave me alone.” Taking a deep breath, I type out a reply.
Me: WHO IS THIS?
Anonymous: Why all the yelling?
I roll my eyes. This is just ridiculous.
Me: I like using all caps.
Anonymous: Don’t stop on my account. So, what have you been up to? Been a while since we talked.
Me: Yeah, it’s because I blocked the number.
Anonymous: Why?
Me: BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!
“What is he saying?” Vikki asks. I show her the texts and her eyes widen. “So, you haven’t talked to him since you blocked the number?”
I think back to when I blocked it and if my calculations are correct, the ninety days was up yesterday. “No, but he has perfect timing. My ninety days ran up yesterday. I might need to run to the cell store and see if they can block it permanently.”
My phone beeps again and a sharp pain settles in my gut. I just want whoever it is to leave me alone.
Anonymous: That hurts. You’ve always been friendly toward me.
Me: Obviously not friendly enough, if you can’t tell me who you are. It’s weird and it makes me uncomfortable. You need to leave me the hell alone. Don’t text, call, or try to contact me in any way. I’m happily married, and I want it to stay that way. GOODBYE!
Heart racing, I log into my cell phone account and before I can block the number, another text comes through.
Anonymous: Sorry 31773 but that’s not going to happen.
The blood in my veins runs cold. Hands shaking, I block his number and my phone drops onto the table. Vikki picks it up and reads the final text, her face growing pale.
“I don’t think this person’s going away."

KISS ME BACK by Sidney Halston. ★★★★★ AVAILABLE NOW!

Book 3 in the Panic series
by USA Today Bestselling Author Sidney Halston
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Romance



B&N 

 iBOOKS 

 KOBO



The only thing hotter than the Miami sun is the sexual tension at Panic, the South Beach nightclub where love knows no boundaries.

Lola: I’ve seen the way women in line behind the velvet rope look at William Fox, like he’s an Armani-clad St. Peter at the pearly gates. Except Panic isn’t heaven, and this bouncer is no saint. He’s been tempting me to sin ever since I started working here, but Fox’s slick smile and bad-boy swagger tell me everything I need to know about him. Still, a girl has needs. And Fox looks ready to fulfill every last one—at least for a night. . . .

Fox: I’m not used to being ignored—especially by women—but Lola Daye is different. The pretty bartender with the red lips and icy blue eyes seems perfectly happy pretending I don’t exist. Too bad, because the more she ignores me, the harder I fall. So I’m floored when she answers my drunken, flirty text with a yes. Lola claims she only wants a fling, but after one kiss, our bodies are speaking the same language. And I’m ready to prove that what we have could be forever.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. And no dress code.

CAT'S REVIEW
KISS ME BACK by Sidney Halston.  Well, she's done it again! Ms. Halston has blown me away with this one.  This entire series has been one of my favorites all along and this one just proves what a talented author Ms. Halston is.  She always packs a punch!  Lola and Fox - yummy!  Lola is an extremely independent woman - never leans on anyone.  This can be a touch annoying but, truthfully, I understood her need to be so.  Fox might come across as a bit cocky and arrogant, but boy, when he gets down to business, with Lola, there is no denying he is one sexy book boyfriend.  Together it was wonderful to see a couple work through their HEA, even if there are some bumps and resistance along the way.   The storyline held me heart and soul.  I couldn't put it down - wanting to know the secrets and what would happen with each page turned.  I highly recommend this book - I believe it can be read as a standalone, but the previous books in the series are awesome as well so I recommend checking them out too!  (received ARC for honest review)

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: "Just Do It"--Nike. And that's exactly what she did. 

After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she's not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She's a reader first and a writer second. When she's not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn't have it any other way.

Cat's Review
DRIVING WHISKEY WILD by Melissa Foster.  This review is for the audiobook version of this story.  Having read the previous books in the Whiskey series, I was very excited for Bullet and Finlay's story.  (Note- this can be listened to as a standalone).  Ms. Foster's story often evoke quite the range of emotions out of me and this one was no different.  Bullet is uber-sexy, rough and tough and gruff all the way but has the biggest heart of almost any Hero I've ever met.  Finlay is sweet as pie and, if two people could be more opposite, it's these two.  Finlay, however, at times was just a tad too sweet for me and came across a little naive.  Despite that, she complemented Bullet perfectly.  Their love story is one that is sweet and endearing.  It represents many of the ups and downs couples face as they journey their path together.  I was smiling and laughing, swooning and catching my breath, and then found myself yelling at the characters too.  Ms. Foster does an amazing job of portraying the emotions and feelings of her characters and her phrasing and way with words often makes me go "Sigh - that is just soooo romantic!"   The audio version of the tale was well done, although I had my hesitations when learning it was a male narrator.  Often, I find males distracting when they try to pull off a female's voice.  Mr. Paul Woodson did an acceptable job, however.  It did take me a chapter or two to get used to him speaking as Finlay and the other females, but once I got into the story, it no longer became an issue for me. I found I could follow and recognize each character as he spoke.  Listening to a book is a bit different then reading it and I found DRIVING WHISKEY WILD to be a wonderful listening experience. (received an ARC of the audiobook for an honest review)

BOOK SUMMARY

Wanted: Governess for duke’s unruly children 

Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have terrorized half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.

Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke

Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won’t be quite so easy to control. And there’s something else she can’t seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time Edgar is near.

Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny

As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she’s the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win . . .?

EXCERPT

“Not one in one thousand governesses would lecture me as you do, Miss Perkins.”
“As a governess I have a duty to point out misbehavior.”
“Impudent minx.”
Why was he grinning at her as if he liked impudent minxes more than anything? And why couldn’t she stop noticing how nicely shaped his lips were? Firm on top, yet sensually flared below.
“Perhaps I deserve a thorough tongue-lashing,” he mused.
Which sounded quite wicked when spoken in such a low, husky voice.
His gaze shifted to her lips. “Are you planning to give me another?”
“Only if you’re bad, Your Grace.”
He must have taken a step nearer to her. Or had she been the one to move closer? So close.
A reckless desire formed in her mind, blotting out her customary good sense. A desire to misbehave. Just this once.
“Or . . .” She rose to her tiptoes, placing her palms against his rock-solid chest. “I could be the bad one . . .”


CAT'S REVIEW
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DUKE MAKES by Lenora Bell.  What an delightful story!  I simply adored the characters, the plot and the writing style of Ms. Bell.  Mari is happiness and life and strength and hope all wrapped up into one single being.  Edgar is a bit gruff but has a huge heart, even if he fights against it at times.  The story, while a bit predictable, had me smiling and cheering for the lovely couple throughout.  Ms. Bell has a knack for keeping the story light yet deals with some tough situations.  The fluidity of the tale made this one an easy and fast read for me, never wanting to put it down until the end.  (received ARC for honest review)
