Blurb –

Forget. Me. Not.
Finding those words highlighted in old newspaper articles at two grisly murder scenes sent shivers of unease prickling down criminal analyst Autumn Taylor’s spine. That seemingly simple sentiment allowed memories buried in the past to claw their way to the surface, reminding her of when a vile individual held her life in his hands. Now, a fire is awakened within her to find the killer before the body count rises.

“Promise you’ll never join the life, Nico.”
The past has reared its ugly head for defense attorney Nico Scala as his uncle, the head of an Italian syndicate, turns to Nico to find answers about his daughter’s brutal murder. Forced to straddle the moral line between law enforcement and the mob, Nico delves into the high-profile investigation. Hunting for the killer with Autumn, an unexpected attraction begins to develop between them.

As the past and present meld into a deadly threat, Autumn finds herself the target of a deranged sociopath once more. With danger closing in, her only choice is to rely on Nico for help. Still, she cant help but be suspicious of his true intentions. Can Autumn allow herself to trust Nico long enough to capture the Forget Me Not Killer? Or will the passion between them cause them to play into the murderer’s twisted plans?

Author’s Note: Please be advised this book is not appropriate for those under the age of 18. It is not for the faint of heart due to the nature of bloody crime scenes. There are also steamy sexy times, especially a hot Italian lesson. Read at your own discretion.

My Review...

This new to me author blew me away with this story!

Filled with suspense, thrills, and a romance that is wicked hot, this is the story of Nico and Autumn. This is about family secrets and tragedy. This is a story of vengeance and revenge.

While Autumn is on the right side of the law, Nico, well, he straddles it a bit, and in a good way.

A killer on the loose, Autumn has ties to this killer, and she is trying hard to atone for things that happened in her past. She is a survivor with a heavy dose of survivor’s guilt that drives what she does.

Nico is the classic alpha male; add in the Italian background and “ciao calore“! He sees what he wants and goes after it. He is a bit of a bad boy with the heart of a gentleman, just the way I like them.

This is a fast-paced story that is going to keep you on the proverbial edge of your seat.

“I need you to marry me.”

Jane Fox


My boss cannot be serious. The ridiculously handsome man I hate-to-crush on has just proposed I pretend to be his wife for a funeral. A funeral! Only, when he dangles a much-coveted position in exchange for my time, I can’t refuse. Who am I kidding, though? I seem to have a habit of not saying no to Mr. Wright.


Machlan Wright


Things spiral out of control the second we reach my small town. A place I swore I’d never return has suddenly become my inheritance. As in, I’ve inherited an entire town! Only, there’s one condition: my hot, top executive pretending to be my wife must marry me for real. What could possibly go wrong? <insert sarcasm>



Join Jane and Mach as they road trip to a lovely mountain town where memories haunt and relationships build. And it takes (the restoration of) a village for this marriage of convenience to question the past and change the future.


L.B. Dunbar brings you a second standalone in Road Trips & Romance. 


**Note, the Fox sisters are siblings of Garrett Fox from Wine & Dine, an original #sexysilverfox. 

My Review...

Mysteries, secrets, and silver foxes aplenty in this newest story from Ms. Dunbar.

This is the highly anticipated (at least for me) second book in the Fox sisters. 

This is Jane and Machlan’s story, and what a smexy ride it was!

Jane and Machlan have been working together for almost a decade. Their working relationship is a true testament to the saying, “There is a thin line between love and hate.”

Jane is the eldest Fox sister and takes that role seriously, always the one who takes care of everything and everyone. Sometimes that didn’t work in her favor.

Machlan has secrets buried deep and a hurt that has caused him to become the man his is today.

A beautiful town with a Scottish background is the setting for this story, and I want to live there! The town and its inhabitants help shape the relationship between Mach and Jane. It was beautiful and heartbreaking to see it unfold.

And wowza…the smexiness between Jane and Machlan is something for the record books! It’s fantastic to see vintage characters still have the spontaneity, cleverness, and downright hotness as their younger counterparts!

I am in love with this story, and is another sparkly gem in the crown of Ms. Dunbar’s writing crown!

RUNAWAY GROOMSMAN Cover - Meghan Quinn


“He runs from the altar—and finds love in the place he least expects.”

RUNAWAY GROOMSMAN, a brand new, heartfelt romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn about new beginnings and finding the romanticized happily ever after in the most unlikely of places, is Now Available in all formats! Dive into this slow burn romance with “a healthy dose of humor and heart” (Library Journal). One-click your copy today! 



Hollywood screenwriter Sawyer Walsh knows a good love story when he sees it. But when it comes to real life romance, he’s a mess. That’s how he finds himself standing at the altar…as his ex-girlfriend ties the knot with his very famous best friend. The pressure, the resentment, the media coverage—it’s all too much—and before he knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s making a run for it, leaving a shocked congregation and flashing cameras in his wake.

Needing to lie low amid the media fallout, Sawyer lands in the charming town of Canoodle, California, where he crosses paths with Fallon Long, who runs the Canoodle Cove Cabins, a family-owned business and Sawyer’s new short-term residence. Overwhelmed with renovations and her long list of responsibilities, Fallon is struggling to make ends meet while attempting to bring the cabins back to their original glory. So when Sawyer arrives, she is grateful for the income, but immediately writes him off as just another vapid Hollywood hack, until he begins to prove her wrong at every turn.

As Fallon comes closer to saving the family business, an undeniable bond forms between her and the handsome screenwriter. But the pressures of her family obligations and Sawyer’s notoriety might prove to be too much for anyone to handle. Could Canoodle be the setting for a new romance—or is true love just a Hollywood cliché?

My Review...

Another fantastic story from the talented mind of Meghan Quinn.

Full of laughs, swoons, and heart, this story will take readers into the amazing world of Canoodle, a small town with a big-hearted community.

This is the story of Sawyer and Fallon. 

Fighting hard to save her grandparents legacy, Fallon is a fighter; she takes too much on and is too proud to ask for help when needed. Her love for her family shines through the pages, and I was cheering her on.

Sawyer is running from a life that has broken him down. When he lands in Canoodle, he doesn’t realize that his past is right in front of him. When he finds some clarity and companionship in a growly old man, he decides that he wants to help make the Cove vibrant again.

The chemistry between Fallon and Sawyer is amazing, and I absolutely swooned hard at the things that Sawyer was doing to take care of Fallon and Sully behind the scenes. I applauded his resiliency when faced with a dilemma of the heart.

As always the secondary characters in this story almost steal the show and make this story that much more vibrant.

Is this the last we will see of Canoodle? I hope not!

Two people find love in the embers of their painful pasts in this slow-burn romance from Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw.
For me, family is a curse. My father and brother made my life hell. My mother’s untimely death still keeps me up at night. Now that my brother, Donovan, has been killed in an accident, I can forget the past.
The last remnant is the childhood home I’ve inherited—and which I intend to burn to the ground. The only obstacle? Anneliese Nielsen, Donovan’s fiancée.
Donovan left her destitute, and selling this run-down house is her only chance to recoup her losses. I shouldn’t care, but…maybe it’s her eyes when she sees me. I look strikingly like my brother, a man she loved despite everything.
So we strike a deal. We’ll renovate the house together, but she’ll have to convince me to sell—or up in flames it goes.
But the more time we spend in the house, the more its terrible history threatens to come out.
And even more dangerous, the harder I start to fall for Anneliese.



Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw is a bona fide daydream believer. She lives somewhere in the middle of the USA and can rarely be seen without her trusty Mead notebook and ultra portable laptop. When she’s not writing, she’s living the American dream with her husband, three kids, and the laziest puggle this side of the Mississippi.

My Review...

Ms. Renshaw spins a fabulous story dealing with heartbreak, secrets, and lies. This story is also about honesty and genuine love.

This is the story of Lachlan and Anneliese. 

Anneliese has been taken for a fool; she loves hard and fast with the wrong person. This person has taken advantage of her and her soft heart. When an accident takes him away, Anneliese is faced with the truth of her relationship she tries to harden her heart and make the best of what’s left of her life.

Enter Lachlan; he is a man with a plan for vengeance and closure. He wants to watch his past burn, figuratively and literally. When a roadblock known as Anneliese comes into his world, it’s tipped all askew. 

I loved the honesty of Lachlan and the gentleness of Annelise. I was invested in this story and the secrets that were revealed and the relationship that blossomed from the ashes.

Ms. Renshaw has a fantastic talent for writing a story that will hook you from the get-go and won’t let you go until the final page and sometimes even longer!

MY FAVORITE MISTAKE by Claudia Burgoa is LIVE!

Apple Books ➺
Nook ➺
Kobo ➺
Google Play ➺
Goodreads ➺
USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa brings us a brand new hockey romance about missed opportunities, accidental weddings, and found family.
What happens in Vegas might go viral!
The first time I met Caspian Spearman, we had the perfect night.
The second time, I was on the arm of his biggest rival.
The third night… was a string of mistakes.
Don’t believe me?
Let’s do a play-by-play—or mistake by mistake.
  1. I surprised my boyfriend in Vegas.
  2. I didn’t kill him when I caught him sleeping with his best friend.
  3. I went to the bar where I bumped into Cas.
  4. We had a few tequila shots for old times’ sake.
  5. Like the last time, we ended up in bed…but it doesn’t end there.
According to the internet I’m married to the hot, arrogant, womanizer captain of the Portland Orcas.
It’s all over social media—in case we need proof.
Even my mother watched the blissful event—kill me now.
He can’t afford the bad PR.
I can’t deal with Mom’s, I told you so.
So, we agree to stay married.
At least until the end of next season.
And in the meantime, we’ll enjoy our off-the-charts chemistry.
The benefits of being married, he says.
What can go wrong?
After all, it’s only sex.


My Review...

The second branch of the Spearman family is just as addicting as the first!

In this newest story, we get Caspian and Rys.

First off, I absolutely love Rys’s real name. Polaris is perfect! I also loved this character, I could totally empathize with her, and I swear she is my spirit sister. She works hard, and she is a bit of an introvert, but when she gives her heart, she gives her all.

Caspian is such a swoony fella! Ms. Burgoa has the perfect way to make her heroes. Caspian never forgets the short time he spends with Rys; in fact, she makes a permanent mark on his heart, soul, and other places ;).

Their story is fun, and fresh and exposes both of them to some obstacles that they have to face, but through it all, you get the best of Ms. Burgoa’s writing talent.

Who doesn’t love a hockey player? I know I do! This story is another gem in the crown of talent that Claudia Burgoa owns!

About the book:

They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.

Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak…and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.
After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.

Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.

Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.
Especially when one of them hates you.

My Review...

Whew…what a story! Serendipity and fate play a cruel mistress in this new book by Ms. Shen.

This is the story of Ever. Three people, two love stories, and all the chaos that comes from it.

Ever is such a tragic soul. I was enamored with her darkness and her goth girl embrace. I like that she didn’t follow the mainstream. Just as her future was beginning, bright and beautiful a tragedy happens and changes her whole world outlook and how she decides how to live her life.

The men in her life come into her world at both the perfect time and at the worst. The angst of this story is so on point, and it made me invest even more in this story and to root for Ever and the man she was destined to be with. 

From the beautiful, tragic history of Salem to the beautiful shores of California and the world beyond Ms. Shen takes you on a journey that will keep you riveted to the pages and cheering Ever on as she navigates her world.

My Review...

Hello Charles…

Whew…this new story from Ms. Harrison is all kinds of steamy, and the smexiness….oooooo la la!

I absolutely enjoyed this grumpy hero, sunshiny heroine. This story of Charles and Raven is everything I love about this trope.

Raven is a ray of sunshine, even when she doesn’t want to be. How she takes charge and runs her world is girl power to the extreme, and I admire that!

Charles is the alpha with the accent and the stiff upper lip that personifies an English prat but in a good way. 

Their chemistry is off the charts hot, and I was entranced by the way they fought their feelings. I swooned over the way that fate kept bringing them together, and Raven was able to smooth Charles’s rough edges and break down the walls around his heart.

It was them against the world for a bit, and that made their feelings for each other and their determination to make things right shine even brighter on the pages.

If you are looking for a can’t put down read, get your hands on this newest story from Ava Harrison!

See My Review Below!!!




Newlywed Jade Westmore has finally found her forever in husband Wells, a charming, successful, and recently divorced architect—only there’s one caveat. Behind the gates of their elysian estate, hidden from street view in the caretaker’s cottage … lives Wells’ first wife, Sylvie.

Three years ago, the original Mrs. Westmore suffered an unfortunate accident—and hasn’t uttered a sound since. Not a physician, psychologist, or world-renowned specialist has been able to elicit so much as a word from the silent woman … until now.

On an ordinary Tuesday while Wells was away—despite instructions to never disturb the fragile woman—Jade visited her isolated predecessor bearing a peace offering: a bouquet of white lilies. Only she wasn’t expecting Sylvie to have something for her as well: a slip of torn notebook paper with a single word scrawled in shaky black ink.

That word? Run.

My Review...

Holy crow! Ms. Kent is going to take you down a rabbit hole of suspense and mystery and will absolutely have you guessing until the very end with this new story!

I was blown away by how much I caught myself questioning everything that was on the page. When I thought I was sure to know who done it, Ms. Kent has this amazing ability to make you learn to love all the characters, even when you don’t know who the evil one really is.

This story is going to take you on a mesmerizing journey that spans generations. I absolutely loved the different POV’s! The way that two people see the same life in such different ways. 

I was glued to my e-reader with this story, not really knowing who to cheer for until it was almost too late! And the ending!! Gahhh it was stupendous! I am always blown away by the great writing talent and mind of Minka Kent! Get your hands on this and get pulled into the world of the Westmore women.

Give Me Love by Corinne Michaels is now live!

New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings another second chance standalone in the town of Rose Canyon.

My biggest mistake was falling in love with my fake husband.
It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience between two best friends in the military. Our plan was to collect extra money and stay stationed together.
But what failed? Me. I did. Because suddenly I wanted a man who was never meant to be my real husband.

In an attempt to remedy my mistake, I severed all ties and put my life as a combat medic and Emmett Maxwell behind me. I’ve lost too many people to open myself up to love.

Now I’m working as a private investigator, and fate has stepped in, forcing our paths to intersect again when I’m looking into the disappearance of a missing girl with ties to Emmett’s hometown. A case I fear puts his life in danger.

He gives me one week to prove my suspicions and then I need to sign the divorce papers and leave. The problem with that? The moment I see Emmett again, I realize how foolish it was to leave him, to think I could ever stop loving him. All I want is a second chance.

When the case threatens not only my life but also his, I’m faced with my worst fear. How many times can a heart break before it shatters beyond repair?

My Review...

This second book in the Rose Canyon series is going to grab you from the get-go.

This is Emmett and Blakely’s story. A mystery spouse and an even bigger mystery in the small town of Rose Canyon.

As a woman veteran myself, I could relate to Blakely’s way of thinking. She is no wallflower or damsel in distress. She is a take-no-prisoners kinda gal, and I applaud that. She also has a vulnerable side that she doesn’t like to show or let it be known. But with Emmett, she knows she has found her other half.

Emmett is a hero; he just needs a cape! I also applaud his ability to stay strong when it comes to his heart. Knowing what he wants and is willing to fight for it.

I also am really digging this mystery! Ms. Micheals is giving us a trail of breadcrumbs that I love to follow! I can’t wait to see with the next story in this series more of the mystery coming to light.

Once Forbidden, Twice Shy by Carrie Aarons is live!

Running from your problems only brings you hurtling face first into even worse baggage.

After experiencing a brutal trauma in New York that I’d rather bury than address, escaping to a new job in London seems like the perfect solution. That was before I was introduced to my new boss, who is none other than my brother’s best friend. You know, the one I’ve been head-over-heels in love with forever.

Jack Merrick had been my crush since I knew what one was. For years we fought the feelings; I didn’t want to humiliate myself and his excuse was not betraying my brother or parents, who had accepted him as their own. Then, the night of my college graduation party, he undressed me in my childhood bedroom and confirmed that there was no one else on this earth for him but me.

When I woke the next morning he was gone, off to take a job as a coder halfway around the world. Four years and a mangled heart later, Jack is the last person I expect to see in London, and something close to fate is tricking me into thinking this is more than a coincidence. Our shared love of programming has always connected us, but now it’s the thing we’re weaponizing to get back at each other.

Until one night, when the emotional scars from my attack resurface and he’s the only one to witness a massive breakdown. He coaxes out my secrets and swears to love and protect me like he couldn’t before. But with everything stacked against us, I’m not sure we can ever have what we’ve always dreamed of.

Except just as we’re beginning to tackle those obstacles, I learn the truth of why he left all those years ago. And suddenly there may be no future for us at all.

My Review...

Talk about a slow burn of a story…whew!

A love from childhood both hidden and unresolved.

This is the story of Jack and Taylor and how moving to a new country brings them together.

Taylor is running from the demons of her past life in New York, she wants to forget and start fresh in a new city and London, and a new job seems like it will be the answer to all of her problems. I admired her strength.

Jack moves to London for a management position in a new company. He has been hiding his feelings for his best friend’s sister from everyone.

You get heart, heat, and a touch of angst with this new story from Carrie Aarons. I loved the secondary characters, both the good and the evil.

This was a fantastic story from a fabulous author!
