About A GOOD TIME:

Can freedom mean forever?

 

 

 

Freedom is paramount for Indy Adams. The last thing she needs is to be tied down.

And the sexy, bachelor client is exactly the kind of guy who would understand her no-strings approach.

 

 

 

Griffin Walker’s reputation as a ladies’ man has put him in a bad light as he tries to get his charitable foundation off the ground. He’s trying to quietly clean up his image and can’t understand why Indy wants nothing except a few steamy nights together. Despite his romantic track record, Griffin wants to build a new life—with Indy. But an unplanned pregnancy may lead them both to a life they never expected. Will Griffin get his chance to show Indy more than a good time?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



"Don't judge a book by it's cover." I've heard that adage so much, it's almost cliche, but the best cliches have a hint of truth to them. Schroeder puts her own spin on a saying we hear, yet chose to ignore. A Good Time is a look at the impact image has on everyday life. Griffin and Indy think with their hearts and many a time that has not proved wise. When the time comes for them to chose between what they want and what others say, will each have the courage to make the right choice? Shannyn Schroeder found a deliciously, tempting way to warm hearts and deliver an entertaining story with a powerful message.

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

 

“Good night, Dad. Have a safe trip home.” Again she kissed his cheek.

 

“It’s about time you were with a man who has a head on his shoulders. This one doesn’t seem like a waste of time and life.” He hitched his chin in Griffin’s direction.

 

“Dad, Griffin’s—”

 

Griffin reached around her to shake Walt’s hand. “Good to meet you, Walt. We’ll see you at the wedding.”

 

In the elevator, Indy took the cake back. “You didn’t have to do that. I never intended for my father to think we were a couple.”

 

“No problem. It seemed to make him happy.”

 

“Yeah, that’ll last. He’ll suddenly remember which daughter he was talking to.” The corners of her mouth pulled down, and they got off the elevator.

 

He didn’t know what to say. No words of comfort would erase the pain. “Why is he so hard on you?”

 

The low, humorless chuckle didn’t fit her. “So many reasons. I was a wild teenager. Big surprise, right? Then I went to the city for college to get away from him. I’m not married with a pack of kids.” She sighed. “But he’ll never forgive me for taking Quinn away from him.”

 

They walked out to the street. “She doesn’t look like a hostage to me.”

 

“She would’ve been. She was seventeen when our mom died. She spent the next year doing everything for Dad while he poured himself into a bottle. She’d already applied to college here and had scholarship money waiting. Quinn is scary smart, but she was going to walk away from that to take care of Dad. One day, I drove home, packed her stuff into my car, and brought her to Chicago.”

 

“It’s been what, twelve years?” He stepped closer to her.

 

“Dad’s good at grudges.”

 

“She could’ve gone back at any time.”

 

“But it’s my fault. If I had never shown her the world outside Hooperville, she would’ve been happy there forever.”

 

“You think so?”

 

“No, but it’s what he thinks. She would’ve grown old and bitter. Luckily we have Lydia to keep an eye on him, or he probably would’ve moved in with Quinn.”

 

He looked up and down the street. “Where’s your car?”

 

She sighed again. “In the shop. Something’s wrong with the transmission.”

 

“How are you getting home?”

 

“Same way I got here—public transportation.”

 

“You’re taking the bus?” Somehow, he couldn’t picture her standing at a bus stop and clambering up the steps, pushing into the crowd.

 

“Yes, I’m taking the bus. What’s so funny?”

 

“How many times on your trip did a guy try to pick you up?” That he could imagine, especially with her bar uniform on.

 

She shrugged. “No more than when I’m at work. The unwashed masses are not as bad as you picture them.”

 

“Come on, I’ll give you a ride.”

 

“Not necessary. I don’t mind taking the bus, and my apartment is out of your way.”

 

“Come on. By the time the bus shows, I’ll have you halfway home.”

 

They walked to his car in silence.

 

“What, no Jag tonight?” she asked, approaching the SUV.

 

“Sorry, I came from the office.”

 

Indy opened the rear passenger door and carefully placed the cake on the floor. She closed the door and leaned against it. “Thank you for tonight. You were an excellent distraction.”

 

She smiled up at him, golden eyes reflecting the streetlights. On impulse, he lowered his lips to hers. Her heady scent grabbed him, and he pressed her against the car.

 

She tasted even better than he imagined. He expected light and breezy but found her spicy and secretive. He braced his hands on the car behind her, trapping her with his body and preventing himself from grabbing her. His fingers wanted to tangle in her long hair.

 

He pulled back before he could want more.

 

“Wow. What was that for?” she asked with a smile.

 

“It’ll keep your dad happy.”

 

“That would make sense if he were watching, but we’re down the block and around the corner. And they’re on the fifth floor. He can’t possibly see us.”

 

He gave a careless glance over his shoulder. “Huh, I guess you’re right.”

 

She laughed lightly. “Thanks. It’s been much too long since I’ve been kissed like that.”

 

He raised his eyebrows. Her comment said a lot about her previous lover. His eyes went back to her mouth. How could a man look at those lips and not want to taste? He opened the passenger door for her to get in before he forgot himself.

Shane Masters wants nothing to do with Christmas. His idea of holiday fun is hanging out with the single guys from the Baltimore Banners while the team has a few days off for the season. The last thing he wants to do is go home and face the memories that haunt him at night--but this year he has no choice. He heads home, convinced he can put the past behind him.

 

Chloe Hunter needs a miracle and will stop at nothing to make it happen--not if it means keeping her brother from his downward spiral. Pulling Shane Masters into the picture seems like the perfect solution--until she sees him again and realizes the past isn't as far away as she thought.

 

But Shane doesn't believe in second-chances or happy-ever-afters, not anymore. And it's going to take a Christmas miracle for the woman who knew him best to thaw his heart before it's too late.

 

*Previously published in the Hockey Holidays Anthology*

 

 

About the Author:

 

Lisa B. Kamps is a USA Today Bestselling Author who loves cheering loudly for her favorite hockey team, the Washington Capitals. She came about the fandom honestly as she lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda out of the house), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.

 

While Lisa writes a lot of hockey - one such series, The Baltimore Banners, features "…hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players…" [USA Today], on and off the ice - she also delves deep *ahem* into the heat with a series of hot and heroic firefighters who put more than their lives on the line in the Firehouse Fourteen series. She's recently introduced a whole new team of hot hockey players who play hard and love even harder in her Banners' spin-off series, The York Bombers. The Chesapeake Blades--a romance series featuring women's hockey--also recently launched with WINNING HARD. Her newest series, Cover Six Security, will launch in early 2019.

Four sexy dragon shifters. One fiery dragoness.

 

I’m done with the dragon shifter lifestyle. No more Dragon Gatherings. No more fancy dinners. And most certainly no more hanky-panky with dragons at the shifter nightclub.

 

So what if I have wings and sometimes spew fire? It doesn’t mean I can’t find a nice human guy to find happily-ever-after with.

 

But when the fertility stone is stolen, I’m enlisted to help with the investigation.

 

Suddenly, I find myself at a billionaire’s villa with four smoking hot dragon shifters. Whatever happens, I need to keep them from stealing my heart as well.

A Christmas Dream

 

 

A CHRISTMAS DREAM BY LANE PARKER

 

 

 

Release DateDecember 3, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Hayden:

For the last decade, I’ve had the same crazy Christmas dream every holiday season.
It’s lovely, happy, sensual, and it’s total bullsh*t because there is no man like my dream man out there for me.
Luckily, the sexy dream only happens once a year, because if it happened more than that, it would be depressing, a constant reminder of what I have in reality.
In real life, I was just dumped by the latest loser in my life, a man who was just using me for my money, and a roof over his head.
Good riddance, right?
But things aren’t really all that simple.
Problem is, I don’t feel like I’m worthy of anything better because I’m a big girl, and I like my food if you know what I mean.
So I made a bargain with myself to stay away from men and dating completely for at least a year to give myself a break, and to try to find my self-esteem after dating a string of men who just didn’t want…me.
I thought that promise I made to myself would be easy to keep, and it was…until I met Jackson Gillette in Galveston while I was hiding out in my beach house licking my wounds from so many bad relationships.
Jackson is a gorgeous, drool-worthy kind of guy. In other words, he was trouble.
Men like him did not date women like me.
But when I realized that there’s so much more to Jackson than the eye can see, do I dare take a chance on realizing my Christmas dream?
After all, he might just be exactly what I want from Santa this year.

Author NoteIf you’re looking for a traditional, sweet Christmas romance, you might want to move on. This is a sexy, panty melting, fantastical Christmas romance that’s heavily rolled in sugar sweet enough to satisfy your craving for Christmas cookies, with a big dose of Christmas magic. If that sounds like a great holiday reading to you, then dig in and enjoy!!

OWEN (UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE) BY MELODY ANNE

 

 

 

Release DateDecember 4, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

In New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s blazing novel of desire and betrayal, a second chance at love is a hot—and dangerous—proposition.

 

There was a time when Eden’s entire world revolved around Owen Forbes. They were inseparable childhood sweethearts. They planned a life together. Then, without so much as a goodbye, Owen vanished. Now, after ten years, he’s returned to town as the hottest new firefighter on the force. Whatever secrets pulled them apart, Eden can’t fight the sparks reignited by the man who broke her heart.

 

Owen knows he did Eden wrong. If only he could tell her why. As body meets body, he’s whispering for a second chance—wanting her back so bad it hurts. It can also be dangerous. An arsonist is targeting the small town of Edmonds, and Eden with it. And it’s Owen himself who’s become engulfed in suspicion.

 

Eden knows that with a past as hot and mysterious as Owen’s, their future together could go up in flames. Because the one man she’s afraid to trust is the only man she desires—and the only one who can save her.

REVIEWOWEN (UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE) BY MELODY ANNE

 

Owen (Undercover Billionaire, #3)Owen by Melody Anne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Melody Anne is fierce when it comes to family. Whether it be touching our hearts with the Andersen clan or tempting the senses with the Forbes brood, love and loyalty play a key role. Like every other Anne enthusiast I adore the Andersens, but I have to say I'm in awe of these bad boy Forbes brothers. They prove that no family is perfect, but love can make it through even the toughest of situations. Owen is a tale of broken hearts, hidden agendas and second chances. Young love morphs into adult suspicion and two hearts may never be the same. Haunted by heartache. Stalked by danger. Can the boy that ran away reclaim the life he left behind? Eden and Owen are a force to be reckoned with.

ENGAGED TO THE EMT (BLUE COLLAR BROTHERS) BY PIPER RAYNE

 

 

Release DateDecember 6, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A Sexy FAKE RELATIONSHIP rom com standalone written by a duo of two USA Bestselling Authors

 

Luca Bianco is a jerk.

 

There I said it.

 

He thinks he’s so suave and sexy, walking around in his paramedic uniform stretched out by all his hard muscles and saving lives every day. I swear he thinks every woman in the world would kill for a chance to be with him.

 

Men like Luca are good for one thing only—a one-night stand—not commitment. I don’t care if my friend did pay good money at a charity bachelor auction for me to go on a date with him, I refuse to do it.

 

That is until Luca offers me a deal I can’t refuse, and I agree to be his pretend fiancé.

The heat that’s simmered between us for a decade ignites and I’m not sure even Luca will be able to kickstart my heart after I call code blue.

 

What’s that saying? Love is blind?

Not true. I can see this head-on collision coming a mile away.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was all prepared not to like Luca. He's the charmer of the Bianco brothers, that's for sure, but people tend to underestimate his heart. There's a depth there that is well hidden, but a treasure when exposed. For that reason Luca turned out to be my favorite of the brothers. He and Lauren bring out the best and worst in each other, all it takes is a little love and understanding to give them the heart to balance their emotions.

Kip Carmichael is no pretty boy.

 

He's a rough. Dirty. Giant. Hair so unruly, and a beard so thick, his friends on the team call him Sasquatch.

 

The first time Sasquatch lays eyes on Theodora "Teddy" Johnson across the keg at a party one night on Jock Row, she'd been relegated to the sidelines by her jock hungry "friends."

 

Week-after-week, he watches beautiful but bashful Teddy getting overshadowed, and overlooked. Sasquatch finally broad shoulders his way through the crowd, offering to to be her hairy godmother. But the minute their eyes meet? He's a goner.

Kip and Teddy are about to discover that the greatest of gifts are the ones that give a person the courage to stay true to who they are. Ney presents an empowering message in an adorably, heartwarming package. I loved it.

THE SHEIKH'S CHRISTMAS FLING (CHRISTMAS WITH THE YARED SHEIKHS) BY LESLIE NORTH

 

 

 

Release DateDecember 6, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

It’s the Christmas season in the tiny Kingdom of Maatkare, and the royal family needs a chef. Desperate to prove herself after her first restaurant failed, Ana Rizzo jumps at this chance for redemption and nabs the high-paying, short-term job. The opportunity couldn’t be more perfect. Ana will be able to stretch her culinary skills, earn enough money to open another restaurant, and still be able to give her adopted daughter the attention she needs. Her biggest challenge will be winning over the family’s elderly cook and getting Noel Yared, the middle son, to give her food his stamp of approval. She only cares about Noel’s palate, not his soulful brown eyes, his gorgeous runner’s body, and his amazing kisses. An avid runner herself, Ana pushes herself to keep up with Noel during their daily runs. But she’s finding the biggest challenge is resisting Noel’s charm.

Noel finds Ana endlessly fascinating and incredibly sexy. With a bit of charming persuasion from him, the two begin what they both know is a short-term affair. No rules, no heartache, just great sex and a bit of fun. So when he believes Ana has betrayed his family’s trust, he’s glad his heart wasn’t involved. Glad she’s gone. Glad he’ll never see her again. Until he realizes a couple terrible truths too late: Ana was actually the one who was betrayed, and somehow he’s fallen hard for her. Now he needs a bit of Christmas magic to prove he’s worthy of her love.

ACROSS THE HORIZON BY ALY MARTINEZ

 

 

 

Release DateDecember 6, 2018

 

 


SYNOPSIS

 

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.


I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it...

So does heartbreak.

Across the HorizonAcross the Horizon by Aly Martinez

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


My favorite stories are the identifiers. Stories that carry a sense of truth that is relatable and raw. Characters that inspire by example and authors who are not afraid to expose their heart even at the worst moments. Across the Horizon is a compilation of fate, love and heartbreak. Martinez peers into a aching heart and a second chance at a surprising time. Emotion leaps off the page and pulls at your heart. Rita and Tanner are a match made in heartache, but healed by love.

BEACH BLANKET HOMICIDE (WHISPERING BAY MYSTERY) BY MARIA GERACI

 

 

 

 

Release Date: December 7, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A fun, quirky chick-lit mystery starring Lucy McGuffin, world's best muffin maker and amateur sleuth.

Everyone agrees that Lucy McGuffin bakes the muffins in Whispering Bay, but she's got another talent, one that she's tried her whole life to hide. Lucy can always tell when a person is lying or telling the truth. Being a human lie detector isn't all it's cracked up to be. Especially when you really don't want the answer to the universal question, "Does this dress make my butt look too big?"

When Lucy is hired to cater the grand opening celebration of the city's new community center, she stumbles across the dead body of Abby Delgado, a prominent member of the Sunshine Ghost Society. Lucy's brother, Father Sebastian, a local priest, is the last person to have seen Abby alive. Convinced he'll be breaking a confidence, Sebastian refuses to cooperate with the police, forcing Lucy to put her skills to the test to save her brother's good name.

Enter the town's new hotshot deputy, Travis Fontaine. Travis doesn't want an amateur like Lucy snooping around his turf, so he offers her a deal. He'll stay out of her kitchen if she stays away from his crime scenes. But Lucy isn't about to let her brother's fate rest in the hands of an arrogant cop.

Good thing she has her best friend, Will, and her new rescue dog, Paco, to back her up, because it's up to Lucy to figure out what everyone in the quaint little beachside town is

Geraci is back with the same wry wit and host of captivating characters. This time around she throws in a hint of mystery to balance out the humor.
