Date of Publication September 9, 2015

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Twenty-seven year old, African-American, Minka Greene has to endure watching her twin sister marry the man she loves. Her weight is up, and her confidence is down. Not exactly the ideal time to meet the real man of her dreams.

The Scale opens in Martha’s Vineyard with Minka attending Keely and Blake’s engagement party at Martha’s Way, the beautiful inn owned and operated by the tall, blond, tattooed man with the piercing blue eyes. It just so happens Jason Montgomery is also Blake’s childhood friend and the best man. Dealing with a whirl of emotions, Minka faints in Jason’s arms.

When she wakes up naked in Jason’s bed after a night of passion, the Vineyard confirmed bachelor struggling with his own demons and the woman filled with self-doubt and pining for another man are joined in an experience that will change their lives.

REVIEW: THE SCALE (MARTHA'S WAY) BY MIKA JOLIE

 

The Scale (Martha's Way, #1)The Scale by Mika Jolie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Scale has many themes and sub - themes. Ms. Jolie tackles interracial love, loss, self - doubt, relationships and family dynamics all in one tight little buddle. Somehow, she made it work and all of the interwoven storylines morphed into a beautiful story that is identifiable and emotionally stunning. The most powerful subject matter tackled was that of self - image. The flawed and the flawless. That's how Minka saw herself and her twin sister. Her inferiority complex colors her relationship with herself and the outside world, nearly destroying her relationship with her sister in the process. Important messages abound in this story of love and self worth but the most important one in my eyes in order to get love you have to give love and the ability to love and accept yourself flaws and all is a deciding factor in how the world sees you.

Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers) by Miranda Liasson

Review:

Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers Book 2) - Miranda Liasson

 

 

ARC Review: Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers) by Miranda Liasson

Home. How can such a simple word play such an integral part in the way we view the world, others and even ourselves? Can't Fight This Feeling is the culmination of a bond between friends, brothers and family whether by blood or through love family and love. What began as the heartbreaking journey of three brothers finding their way back to each other has morphed into something bigger. Maturity, insight and forgiveness has allowed the once estranged Spikonos brothers to open their hearts and find love and hope in the most unlikely of places.

With Can't Fight this Feeling, Ms. Liasson gives a glimpse into the world of money, power and privilege through the eyes of Drew Poulos, runaway groom. Wealthy does not necessarily mean happy. Now the golden boy has to decide, if his life of means is worth giving up the woman of his dreams. Maggie and Drew's road is paved with insecurities, heartache, loss and sacrifice but it also brings rewarding experiences. Mirror Lake is not just a fictional town. Visiting is like coming home.

DON'T SPEAK (A MODERN FAIRYTALE) BY KATY REGNERY

 

 

 

Release Date:  February 27, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.

A fisherman’s daughter.

The governor’s son.

Two very different worlds.


In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman’s daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of North Carolina’s governor at a fancy party where she’s working.

Laire, who wants so much more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate leads them back to one another, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

All novels Katy Regnery’s ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated to P.E.O. International, a non-profit organization that celebrates the advancement of women, awards scholarships and grants, and provides motivation for women to make their dreams come true.

**Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity, adult themes and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Don't Speak (A Modern Fairytale)Don't Speak by Katy Regnery

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Don't Speak (A Modern Fairytale) By Katy Regnery

Katy Regnery is a trailblazer. Her abundant creativity has allowed her to find innovative ways of leaving her mark in the genre of romance. Whether it's exploring the paranomal or giving a modern twist to a classic, she makes her presence known. With Don't Speak, she took a well known story of courage and beauty and turned it into a tale of acceptance and discovery. The Little Mermaid has always been one of my favorite fairytales and Ms. Regnery has got me to fall even more in love with it. Laire and Eric's journey to forever may be more complicated and less simplistic than a Disney cartoon but Don't Speak delivers enough powerful emotion to make Hans Christian Andersen proud. A classic is made in the heart and the author made it clear that's what she was aiming to do. WELL DONE!

PERFECT FOR YOU (SUNSHINE CREEK VINEYARD) BY CANDIS TERRY

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be.

What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love.

Perfect for You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard, #2)Perfect for You by Candis Terry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Perfect For You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard) by Candis Terry

Candis Terry is a one click author for me. She is perfect escapism reading. Her characters never take themselves too seriously and despite that, her novels manage to appeal to the heart, stimulate the hormones and continuously fall into the irresistible category. Though not as emotional as Jordan and Lucy's journey of mistakes and regret in A Better Man, Perfect for You has it's moment of unforgettable. Brooke and Declan's story is more about living life to the fullest than dwelling on past regrets. Brooke is a risk taker. She knows what she wants and when it matters most, has no problem with asserting herself. Declan can learn a thing or to from this firecracker. The ability to get out of your head for a while is reason enough to give this author a try.

REVIEW:  THE BILLIONAIRE BASTARD (BILLIONAIRE BAD BOYS) BY JESSICA LEMMON

 

The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys Book 3)The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


All of the Crane brothers have struggled with matters of the heart but Eli's phobias were more complex. A life in transition set him on a course of self recrimination and the life of a recluse. He acted the part of a beast but inside that blustering exterior lay the heart of a broken man. Loss, anger, pain pity and blame have become his constant friends. That is until a caring family and a determined beauty set out to shake up his world and wake up his heart. The Billionaire Bastard travels beyond the beast and delivers sensuality, redemption and inspiration while dealing with a heavy subject. It is one of Ms. Lemmon's crowning achievements in my opinion.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Society will never be the same when a wild child shakes up the structured world of a man on a mission. Ms. Frampton brings humorous charm and seasoned class to a scenario done many times. My Fair Duchess is a twist on an old gem that develops a life of it's own when Archibald and Genevieve step into view. He's a pillar of the aristocracy with his title and war hero status. She's a newbie in need of some serious taming. What ensues is ultimate chaos with irresistible heart. Another classic in the making.

PUPPY LOVE (REDWOOD RIDGE) BY KELLY MORAN

 

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.

Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she’s working for his family’s clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery—and her too-guarded heart—that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .

REVIEW:  PUPPY LOVE (REDWOOD RIDGE) BY KELLY MORAN

 

Puppy Love (Redwood Ridge #1)Puppy Love by Kelly Moran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is my second book by Kelly Moran and I am impressed. Her stories are heartfelt. Her characters are like family. She speaks to the heart with her brand of good- natured down home love stories. Puppy Love is such a sweet story. There is nothing more precious to a mother than the well being of her child. A fresh start in a less hectic atmosphere is just the thing for Avery and her daughter to begin again. A little small town romance with a adorable backdrop of characters and a an A list main cast make for a light hearted second chance story.

HOMETOWN COWBOY (ROCKY MOUNTAIN RIDERS) BY SARA RICHARDSON

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY


Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot--will not--fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.

Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father--Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance's dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that's easier said than done . . .

ARC Review:  Hometown Cowboy (Rocky Mountain Riders) by Sara Richardson
 
The best gifts are the ones presented with love.  Words to live by.  Hometown Cowboy has LOVE written all over it.  Ms. Richardson's kinship with her readers is evident with every word she writes and each character she creates.  She targets the heart and scores with every aim.  Hometown Cowboy starts with regrets and sorrow but gradually builds with a brighter hope for a better tomorrow.  Lance and Jessa's path is not always pretty, but it's built on real emotion and not manufactured in any way.  To heal the pain of the past, we have to face it, accept it and move forward.  I never tire of this author, her melodies always hit the right chord with me.

BLUSH FOR ME (FUSION) BY KRISTEN PROBY

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

ARC Review:  Blush For Me (Fusion) by Kristen Proby
 
Kristen Proby and her Fusion series bursts with flavor.  I keep coming back because the message is a powerful one and the characters are hard to ignore.
Fusion is built on sisterhood, friendship, equality and love.  The message:  "It's okay to be different, just be yourself."  We all need to hear that at one time or another and being true to oneself is the greatest piece of advice a person can receive.   Kat wears her self - confidence like a badge of honor.  She speaks her mind.  Goes after what she wants and is working on facing her fears.  When a test of fear comes back to bite her in the butt, her white knight is there in the next seat to hold her hand.  Mac is no hero, but he is tempted  to break his own rules.  Now he has to decide, if facing his biggest fear will net him his greatest reward.  Love with attitude.  Kristen Proby does it up right.

 Crave Me (O'Brien Family #3)

 

 

CRAVE ME (O'BRIEN FAMILY) BY CECY ROBSON

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Wren O’Brien isn’t your typical female. As the only girl from a loud Irish family with seven siblings, she prefers fast cars to lip gloss and bad boys to good men. It’s the reason she’s nursing a wounded soul and keeping her distance from a dangerous ex.

Evan Jonah is running an empire and just moved from the lavish thoroughfares of London to the gritty streets of Philadelphia. When he walks into the nearest dealership, he’s expecting to find a reliable vehicle to handle the brutal winters, not a sexy female car rep with killer legs.

Wren doesn’t know why “Hotness in a Suit” asked her out. She doesn’t expect a great time or a night of passion that knocks her on her ass. But that’s exactly what Evan shows her.

She also never counted on how hard and fast she’d fall. But men like Evan—good men with even better hearts—don’t desire tough-talking Philly girls for long.

Evan has never met a woman like Wren. But he’s up for the challenge and ready to prove her wrong.

ARC Review: Crave Me (O'Brien Family) by Cecy Robson

Wren is one tough cookie. She knows her heart, speaks her mind and never turns away from a challenge. To look at her, no one would guess the insecurities that hide beneath her tough as nails exterior. Crave Me guided me through a number of firsts. Not only am I discovering a new author, but Erin and Evan are my introduction to the O'Brien family as well. Wren is the spice. The flavor that grabs hold of the senses and lingers after the last bite. Evan is the main course. He knows how to satisfy the heartiest of appetites in the most subtle of ways. If every O'Brien is as magnetic, I just may have to make a return visit. A grand introduction to a spirited family.

ROYALLY MATCHED (ROYALLY) BY EMMA CHASE

 

 

Release Date:  February 21, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

 

He’s not handling it well.

 

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

 

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

 

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

 

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

 

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

A Husband by New Year's (The McClendon Holiday Series Book 4)

 

 

 

A HUSBAND BY NEW YEAR'S (MCCLENDON HOLIDAY) BY SEAN D. YOUNG

 

 

 

 

Release Date:  February 21, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Two hearts can’t merge until they get their signals straight.

 

The McClendon Holiday Series, Book 4

 

Love is a gamble.

 

Renee McClendon has had enough of pretty boys with fancy cars, pricey shoes, and empty souls. Never mind they’ve all matched her teen-diary version of the perfect man. None of them panned out.

 

She’s ready for someone who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. A regular guy who doesn’t brag about everything he owns and the size of his…portfolio. And if she doesn’t find him by January 1, she’s closing the book on love. For good.

 

He’s willing to roll the dice.

 

When Patrick Dunlap drives the pretty, polished marketing professional home in his limousine, he figures she’ll be as superficial as all the other women who assume he’s a lowly chauffeur. Until they learn he owns the company, and their eyes light up—with dollar signs.

 

To his surprise, they hit it off so well he finds himself withholding that one tiny detail. But when the truth inevitably comes out, he fears the forever girl he’s longed for could disappear faster than a gust of winter wind.

 

Warning: Contains one half-serious bet, a whole list of secret longings, and one Cinderella fella who’s Prince Charming in disguise—and who’s never late for the ball.

REVIEW: A HUSBAND BY NEW YEAR'S (MCCLENDON HOLIDAY) BY SEAN D. YOUNG

 

A Husband by New Year's (The McClendon Holiday Series Book 4)A Husband by New Year's by Sean D. Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: A Husband by New Year's (McClendon Holiday) by Sean D. Young

The best way to sum up Patrick and Renee is through the words of a familiar melody. The first line of an old Keith Whitley song fits this couple perfectly. I have always loved the tune, When You Say Nothing at All and in the opening verse of that song it says " It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart." Simple words, perfect description, beautiful sentiment. Ms. Young managed to convey a ton of realistic emotion in a classically uncomplicated story. The most gifted of artists are not remembered for the words they say or the things they do but the magic they leave behind. That is how A Husband By New Year's made me feel. Like I was standing in the presence of something special.

WHISPER OF LOVE (LOVE IN BLOOM: THE BRADENS OF PEACEFUL HARBOR) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

Release Date:  February 22, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

The Bradens are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

REVIEW: WHISPER OF LOVE (LOVE IN BLOOM: THE BRADENS OF PEACEFUL HARBOR) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

Whisper of Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #5; The Bradens #17; Love in Bloom #36)Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Whisper of Love (Love in Bloom: The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor) by Melissa Foster

A twist of fate, a splash of irony and whole lot of heart prove to be the driving force behind Whisper of Love. Melissa Foster does it again with laughter, love and soul stirring emotion. Tempest has a big heart and the love of a good family, but she has yet to find her heart's desire, her soul mate like her siblings have done. Nash is a man with an abundance of love to give, but a past tragedy has shaped him into a man of caution. Add to that a beautiful, yet mischievous little boy and the heart melting begins. Whisper of Love has everything from drama, to humour, to precious moments of insight. The best way to describe Tempest, Nash and Phillip's journey would be a family in the making. A count your blessings story with a dash of faith thrown in.

The Bachelor meets The Runaway Bride in this
addictive romance novel about a reality TV producer falling for her would-be
star: a Montana heartthrob who wants nothing to do with the show.

 


Jordan Carpenter thinks she’s finally found the
perfect candidate for Jilted, a new dating show about runaway
grooms: Luke Elliott, a playboy firefighter who’s left not one but three brides
at the altar. The only problem? Luke refuses to answer Jordan’s emails or
return her calls. Which is how she ends up on a flight to Montana to recruit
him in person. It’s not Manhattan but at least the locals in Lucky Hollow seem
friendly . . . except for Luke, who’s more intense—and way hotter—than the
slick womanizer Jordan expected.

 

 

 

 


Eager to put the past behind him, Luke has zero
intention of following this gorgeous, fast-talking city girl back to New York.
But before he can send her packing, Jordan’s everywhere: at his favorite bar,
the county fair, even his exes’ book club. Annoyingly, everyone in Lucky Hollow
seems to like her—and deep down, she’s starting to grow on him too. But the
more he fights her constant pestering, the more Luke finds himself wishing that
Jordan would kick off her high heels and make herself comfortable in his arms.

For one charming playboy, getting cast on a
Bachelor-esque reality TV show is the shock of a lifetime—until he finds love
where he least expects it. And now the chase is on!

 


Gage Barrett’s reputation as a ladies’ man has
been greatly exaggerated, but none of that matters after a drunken bet lands
him on Jilted, a reality TV show that matches runaway grooms with wannabe
brides. Now he’s stuck at a Hawaiian resort with nineteen women competing to
drag him back to the altar—and one contestant who’s even more miserable than he
is. Gage has no idea how feisty, independent Ellie Wright wound up in the cast,
but it’s obvious she hates his guts. And if there’s one thing Gage likes, it’s
a challenge. . . .

 

 

 

 


Ellie can’t believe she let her best friend talk
her into exchanging her dignity for a glorified bikini contest. Still, she
could use the exposure—her business is struggling—and she’ll probably be one of
the first to get eliminated anyway. But Gage isn’t the shallow jerk Ellie
anticipated—and he’s in no rush to send her home. As stolen kisses turn into
secret trysts, she finds herself losing track of what’s real and what’s for the
camera. With the wedding finale looming, this runaway groom is tempting Ellie
to start believing in storybook endings.

A good girl takes her wild twin’s place on a
provocative dating show and meets the man of her dreams . . . off-camera . . .
in this charming rom-com about loving the one person who can’t love you back.

 


High school science teacher Violet Simmons has
spent her entire life helping her twin sister out of one scrape after another,
but this time, Zoe’s outdone herself. After signing on for the hit reality show Jilted, Zoe
ends up pregnant, and it’s Violet who finds herself in the
exquisite New Orleans mansion with twenty guys trying to coax her down the
aisle. Everyone buys Violet’s cover, including the one man she wishes would see
right through it: Bennett Chapman, the TV executive who looks good in a
suit—and even better out of it.

 

 

 

 


Bennett’s always expected to take over the
network from his father. Now, to seal the deal, he needs record ratings from
their tackiest show, which means the ditzy star needs to walk down the aisle
with one of her meathead suitors. But Zoe Simmons is no bimbo. She’s too smart,
too sarcastic, and far too alluring. The more they butt heads—and lock lips—the
more Bennett wants her all to himself. And when Zoe drops a real bombshell,
Bennett is forced to choose: between the job he’s destined for, or the woman
who’s stolen his heart.
