Happy Release Day & Review!! A Highlander in a Pickup by Laura Trentham

85091293_10206179356639715_7437044908805849088_n

 

A Highland, Georgia Novel…

I absolutely love this series by Laura Trentham.  The whimsical mix of Scotland and the South.  A hodgepodge of cultures that mix beautifully.

This is the story of Ian and Anna.  While this story can be read as a stand-alone, I had the privilege to read the first book in this series, where we briefly meet both Ian and Anna.

Anna is a true red-headed spitfire.  She is southern charm wrapped in a “Bless your heart” personality.  She is bound and determined to need no one.  When she gets put in charge of the annual Highland Festival she is frazzled but she is going to do it all!

Ian is from Cairndow, he is the groundskeeper’s son.  He has been selected to help Anna with the festival.  He is a true testament of the saying “still waters run deep”.

I absolutely love the world of Highlands, Georgia.  The world that Ms. Trentham has created with this series is so visual.  I can “see” myself walking down Main Street.  I can visualize the beauty of Stonehaven and the pageantry of the festival.

Ms. Trentham has made her characters believable.  They are not all glossy and perfect, in fact, the way she describes Ian shows that it’s not the outer beauty, but the inner beauty that radiates and pulls Anna into his world.

I am so looking forward to the next book in this series, I hope there are many, many more! If you are looking for a whimsical, funny and swoony story, get your hands on this!

Author: Lily White

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: March 25, 2020

 
Callan Rose.
That hadn’t always been his name.
When we were children, he was nothing more than a servant boy in my family.
He was an amusement to me.
A nobody.
A weak soul who refused to fight back.
It was so easy to take advantage.
 
But then my father died, and I was stolen. The family moved on without me. Until I was penniless with no place to go.
 
I returned to the Rose Estate not knowing Callan was the head of it.
He’d honed his body and temper in the underground fighting ring. The scars only made him more beautiful.
 
Now I’m trapped by a seductively dark man who has nothing but vengeance running through his veins.
 
I’d always wanted him to fight back, but you know what they say:
Be careful what you wish for.

Cover Reveal! The Trade by Meghan Quinn

THE TRADE COVER REVEAL!!

MQTheTradeBookCover55x85_HIGH

Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?

I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.

I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.

Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.

Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.

I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.

I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.

So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah . . . she’s married.

At least, that’s what I was told . . .

THE TRADE RELEASES MARCH 12TH!

Cover Reveal!! Fool Me Twice by Carrie Aarons

 

FOOL ME TWICE by Carrie Aarons
Release Date: March 12th

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51029776-fool-me-twice

 

Blurb:
When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.

 

 

About the Author:
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.

Blurb:
Their relationship changes again when Celia learns the devil takes care of his own.

Edward Fasbender is my savior.

From the ashes of who I once was, he is helping me to rise.

He has a list of people who have wronged him. And now he’s adding names to that list. Names that I gave him.

And we will have our revenge.

 

 

Excerpt:
Inside the windowed room, I set one of the glasses on a table next to the loveseat then dimmed the overhead before taking the other glass to the armchair across from it. The string of lights that had been put up outside for the party were still lit, creating a romantic mood. Not exactly what I was going for, but it would do. In my experience, the darker setting made confessions easier.

I stretched my neck, easing the knots there as I looked out over the yard. The day had been busy and full, and the party had been, by all accounts, successful, but I’d spent the entire time preoccupied with Edward. Even when entertaining strangers or running around trying to find Ilsa to tell her we were out of toilet paper, I’d been aware of my husband. He was a magnetic force, always pulling my thoughts and my body in his direction. Like gravity holding me in his orbit.

I’d never felt that way about anyone before. Not just that in love but also that attached. I was still reeling from the newness of it, eighteen months after we’d wed.

I was also still adjusting to the way he affected me. How he’d brought me peace yet could stir up levels of jealousy within me that I’d never thought possible. His trip to the garden with Marion was innocent—it had to be considering the way he grinned at me when he’d returned. The devil himself wouldn’t flaunt his discretions so openly.

Would he?

My Review…

This story just gets more and more interesting.

The reader gets to dive more and more into the psyche of both Celia and Edward. The way that Ms. Paige writes brings the reader into their world is amazing and feels so genuine.  The atrocities and damage that has been done to Celia, the need for vengeance and revenge for Edward burn up the pages and I couldn’t put it down until the end.

This brings Celia’s past to the forefront, I continue to empathize with her and how she is evolving into a more relatable character.  I continued to understand why she was so cold and calculating and how Edward had to break her down to help her build herself back up again.  I also admired how even though all that she still has steel in her spine and isn’t afraid to fight back for what she truly believes in.

Edward continues to be a man you almost hate to love, but he continues to surprise me and I am seeing some real redeemable qualities to him.  He truly wants Celia to come around to his way of thinking concerning his need for revenge.

This third book was amazing and the ending!!! Oh my me, I cannot wait until May!

My Review…

This is the first book by this author and it made me smolder!

This story has all the hallmarks of a good romantic thriller, it’s got the heat, the heart, mystery and thrilling action!

This is the story of Sarah and Jackson.

Sarah is boho chic! She is happy with her world of friends. She thinks her world is fulfilled and then she meets Jackson and realizes that her soul is calling out to him. When her world start to crumble and she feels vulnerable and scared she relies on both her best friends and Jackson to help her through.

Jackson is a true swoony hero, he is what every alpha should be.  He is there when Sarah needs him and knows when to step back and let her shine on her own.

This story has a mystery that kept me guessing until the very end!  The hints and innuendos that Ms. Autumn relayed throughout the story had me thinking it’s this character or nope, no, it’s this character! So, so good!

I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next!!

Happy Release Day & Review!! Finding Him by Rachel Van Dyken

See My Review Below!!!

 

A shattered family, broken hearts, and healing love.

Finding Him, an all-new standalone in the Covet duet by New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken is LIVE!

Copy of VanDyken-Finding Him-27420-CV-FT-V4.jpg

Coming out of a coma was one hell of a wake-up call. While I was in the dark, my estranged twin brother, Bridge, had replaced me in the company I owned and swept up my fiancée in the takeover. With my ruthless reputation, can I blame them for falling in love? I have to look long and hard at where I’ve been and where I’m headed. Alone time? The universe has other plans.

Our family’s secluded Vermont cabin comes with a gorgeous—if at first unwelcoming—surprise. She’s renter Keaton Westbrook, a social media superstar struggling with her own private grief. As a winter storm bears down, we’ve found something to keep us warm—an intimacy neither of us expected and both of us need.

After we say goodbye, what happens then? Keaton and I are longing to reconcile with our painful pasts. I can’t bear to do it without her. Is it too much to ask of fate to give us a second chance at life and love?

My Review…

Covet Series

Oh my me.  This story, this duet of books is going to give you all the feels.

This is Julian’s story.  Waking up from a coma to find his whole world has changed.  To see and learn things so upheaving and mind-blowing that he is struggling to cope.

Now I will admit, I was a bit leery going into this story.  The first book in this series,  Stealing Her, had painted Julian in a twisted color.  He seemed arrogant and selfish and almost unredeemable.

But a true testament to the talent and magic of Ms. Van Dkyen’s writing and storytelling skills was this story, Finding Him. Because that is what this story is about.  Seeing and finding the real Julian.  And that’s what Keaton did, she found the man, the beautiful soul behind all the drama and negativity.

Keaton is suffering too, she has had one of the most tragic losses anyone can face. Unfortunately being in the spotlight the way she has been all her life can create a whole new set of problems on how to proceed with tragedy and loss.

I absolutely loved this story, I cried, I laughed and I also cheered hard for Julain! Bravo sir for standing up for what your heart wanted and for not taking just “enough” but for demanding it all!
