Snowed in with her off-limits celebrity client. What could go wrong?

Drama King, an all-new forced proximity, mistaken identity, romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is now available!

Stuck with her off-limits, taciturn, hunky movie star client during a sudden snowstorm on Christmas Eve, an extremely capable and highly professional bodyguard must keep him alive and warm without letting the tension building between them get too hot.

Bathsheba (Beth) Ryan can’t thank her best friend enough for helping her land the job of her dreams. After being relegated to second-string security for politicians in DC, being hired as an undercover personal security specialist by a giant Hollywood studio is exactly the kind of action she’s always wanted.

Until she meets her first assignment.

Cyrus Malcom can’t thank his agent enough for arranging a blind date with seemingly the woman of his dreams. After spending the past several years playing all the parts and climbing all the ladders, the lonely mega movie star finds himself actually enjoying a night on the town for the first time in ages when he meets the gorgeous, funny, and genuine Ryaine O’Rourke.

Until she shows up at his studio meeting the next day with a completely different name.

A world-wide press tour and too many late-night parties later, Beth simply needs to get through a short, one-day visit during the Christmas holiday, and then she’ll be free of Cyrus Malcom’s confusing hot looks and cold shoulders for good.

But just as they leave the airport, it starts to snow . . .

‘Drama King’ is the second book in the Three Kings Series, is a full-length, contemporary romantic comedy, and can be read as a complete standalone.

My Review...

The talent of Ms. Reid shines from the pages of this new story!

Drama King is everything you want in a story and more! (At least for me).

This is the story of Bathsheba (Beth) and Cyrus and what a beautiful couple they make.

I admired how Ms. Reid gives her characters dimensions and layers that really stick with the reader. 

Cyrus is beautiful and he is flawed. He is charm and charisma personified. He wants something real and meaningful and in his line of work, it’s hard to find.

Beth, what a bada$$! She was brilliant at her job, to the point of it almost being detrimental to herself. She is honest to a fault and she is just the soulmate that Cyrus needs.

From the “spoiled boy” persona of Cyrus and his inner dialogue to Beth’s remarkable restraint, this story will keep you glued to the book/e-reader/audio until the very end! 

You are going to fall in love hard with both of them in this story, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

She’s Charmed, He’s Sure

Witcha Gonna Do by Avery Flynn is now live!

An unlucky witch and her know-it-all nemesis must team up in the first of a new, spicy romantic comedy series from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn.

Could it possibly get any worse than having absolutely no magical abilities when you’re a member of the most powerful family of witches ever? It used to be that I’d say no, but then I keep getting set up on dates with Gil Connolly whose hotness is only matched by his ego. Seriously. I can’t stand him. Even if I also can’t stop thinking about him (specifically kissing him) but we’re going to pretend I never told you that part.

So yeah, my life isn’t the greatest right now, but then it goes straight to the absolute worst hell when I accidentally make my sister’s spell glitch and curse my whole family. And the only person who can help non-magical me break the spell? You guessed it. Gil the super hot jerk.

Now we have to work together to save my family and outmaneuver some evil-minded nefarious forces bent on world domination. Oh yeah, and we have to do all that while fighting against the attraction building between us because I may not be magical, but what’s happening between Gil and I sure feels like it.

My Review...

Such a cute, exciting, and oh my me, swoony new rom-com from Ms. Flynn.

This is the first story in what is gonna be a fun series!

Welcome to Witchingdom, where the shifters aren’t what you expect, and the witches rule!

This is Tilda and Gil’s story.

Tilda is the odd witch out…or so she thinks. She struggles with fitting in with her family, which happens to be the most powerful family in town. I love her quirks, and her inner dialogue is outstandingly funny!

Gil is stuck between a rock and a hard place; playing both sides and trying hard not to fall for Tilda is a battle he fights on the daily.

I loved all the secondary characters and can’t wait to see and read the future books in this series to see what happens!

Smexy, swoons and laughs are the perfect spell in this new story!

Fake date. Real trouble. Fall for a new trope-tactic, fake dating rom-com read from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!


Sebastian Wainwright is handsome, British, and charming… and the last man you can rely on. Bartending at Mavericks, I’ve seen his love-em-and-leave-em routine up close, and I know better than to become another notch on his king-sized bedpost. But when a little white lie catches up with me, it turns out that Seb is exactly the man I need for the job…
Posing my fake boyfriend for the week.

I need Mr. Perfect to roll up and save me from humiliation, and since he doesn’t exist, I’ll just have to settle for New York’s biggest playboy instead.
A cocktail of disaster?

Combining her love of writing, sex and well-fitted suits, Lila Monroe wrote The Billionaire Bargain. Lila enjoys writing, as it gives her a flexible schedule to spend time with her kids and a wonderful excuse to avoid them. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who strips out of his well-fitted suits nightly.

My Review...

Another fantastic story in this series! You can read them all as a standalone, but do yourself a favor and read them all!

This is the story of Sebastian and Roxy, a story of friends crazily helping each other.

Roxy is fierce; she stands up to whoever and whatever she needs to. She also has a deep sense of feeling like she is just a background player in her world. She deserves to be front and center, and her family needs to see that for themselves.  She doesn’t fit the mold that her family wants her to be in, which doesn’t make her less than; it makes her unique.

Ah, Sebastian, you suave British bloke! He is who he is because of what he thinks he needs to be. He is guarded with his heart and true self, and it was swoony to see it come to light with Roxy.

I always enjoy a Lila Monroe story, and this is no exception!

My Review...

Can I tell you how much I love the town of Luview, Maine? I love it more than some of my relatives (hee hee)! Every time I open up a book by Ms. Kent, I get to travel back! 

This is the story of Colleen Luview and Moore. They have known each other since childhood. They have hidden their feelings for each other almost too well, to the point where they are both scared to bare their hearts to each other.

Significant things happen that throw Colleen and Moore into a life-changing situation. 

My heart ached for the ways that Moore was being pulled in his life, how he had to prioritize his world, even when he didn’t feel right about it.

My heart broke for Colleen as she, too, was being pulled and with the “curse” that floated around her.

I was rooting hard for both Colleen and Moore while they navigated their relationship and their situation. 

But then comes the humor! Ms. Kent has an amazing way of making the reader laugh, cry and invest themselves in the story.

If you want a phenomenal series to read, do yourself a favor and pick up this story!

I hate Christmas.
I don’t know who thought every female must love shopping, wrapping, baking and hosting but I missed the memo. On top of that, I manage an upscale department store. Sprinkle in the fact I’ll be turning forty during this holiday season, and my life is a Christmas cookie recipe gone wrong.
And every year I become a little more Scrooge-ish. 
But the spirit of the most wonderful time of the year <insert sarcasm> seems to have a plan for me and my midlife-crisis attitude.
First, my past returns when I attend a high school reunion happy hour and run into that boy—the one I had a summer fling before I left for college, then promptly ghosted me.
The torture continues because that boy is now a man, worldly and wise and sexier than I remember. And he invites me to attend a holiday work party with him.
That’s where I learn this forty, fine, former NFL quarterback, now fireman has a new role: single father to the sweetest little girl, putting me at risk of falling for both of them. 
However, I have my reasons not to believe in love and the happiest time of the year. And the first twenty-five days of December tests all my strength.
Just what the Dickens is happening? Charles himself might approve of this plot.
Even I’m a little curious to see how it all plays out.

My Review...

Like the perfect Christmas cookie, this story is delicious and will warm your soul.

This story of Eva and Zebb, a long lost love affair that comes back brighter than the Christmas star.

I melt when I see vintage characters get the love and smexy times that they deserve!

This story was sweet, steamy, and full of swoons. I fell in love with all the characters in this story, and my only wish was that it was longer!

If you are looking for a perfect holiday novella, look no further than this story, written by the Queen of Over 40 romance!

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

TEMPT, an all-new steamy small town, one-night-stand, age gap romance featuring a plus-sized heroine and a hot single dad from USA Today and #1 Amazon Bestselling Author Melanie Harlow, is now available!

You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

Keep reading for a look inside TEMPT!

I was just lifting the glass to my lips when I noticed someone sitting around the curve of the bar to the left. He was broad through the chest and shoulders, wore a black dress shirt with the cuffs rolled up, and sat alone. His hair and beard were short and dark. Our eyes met and my body grew warm. His bone structure was beautiful—his face looked like it was chiseled from granite. He held my gaze for a moment then looked away, and I did as well, focusing on the first cold sips of my martini.

But in seconds, my eyes were drawn to him again, and I noticed the hand holding his glass—wide palm, long, solid fingers, thick wrist. I indulged in a brief and magnificent fantasy that involved those hands in my hair, his beard against my cheek, that brawny chest bare and warm above me. Was it hairy? I’d bet yes. He looked like a man’s man. My nipples tingled inside the bustier I wore beneath my dress.

Once more he caught me staring, and I realized too late that I was actually biting my lip.


The guy next to me whistled loudly and yelled at the bartender, “Hey! Can I get another round down here?”

The bartender, who was busy making other drinks, didn’t even look over. I didn’t blame him.

“The service is so shitty in this place,” he said. “You need a pair of tits to get any attention.” He glanced at my chest. “Yours are fantastic, by the way.”

Horrified, I picked up my glass and finished my drink in a couple swallows. I should have thrown it in his face, but it would have been a waste of a good martini. Setting the empty glass down, I reached into my bag for my credit card.

“Hey, don’t rush off.” The asshole leaned closer. He wore a white shirt and blue blazer, and he reeked of cologne. “We’re just getting to know each other.”

“Not interested,” I said, trying to catch the bartender’s eye so I could get my check and leave.

“Why not? I’m alone, you’re alone.” He covered my hand with his. That’s when I noticed he wore a wedding band.

I snatched my hand away and slid off my stool, putting it between us. “I’m not alone.”

“Oh no?” He laughed and glanced around. “Looks like it to me.”

I finally caught the bartender’s eye, and he came right over. “Can I get you something?”

“I’ll cash out,” I said quickly.

The bartender glanced at the asshole. “Everything okay?”

“Everything’s fine, I was just waiting for someone, but he couldn’t make it, so I—”

“Sorry I’m late.” A hand circled my wrist.

Startled, I spun around and saw a black shirt. Wide shoulders. Dark eyes.

The hot stranger and I exchanged a look of understanding before he leaned in and kissed my cheek. His beard was softer than I’d imagined.

“Forgive me?” His voice, by contrast, was deep and gravelly.

“Of—of course,” I stammered, my heart pounding. I couldn’t stop staring—the guy was gorgeous. A little older than I’d thought—there was silver in his hair and beard—but those dark eyes, that deep voice, and the possessive grip on my wrist? The whole package made my knees go weak.

He looked over my head at the bartender. “She’s with me.”

“Dude, she’s not with you,” argued the jerk in the blazer. “You were over there by yourself a minute ago. I saw you.”

Dropping my wrist, the stranger turned to him and growled, “You should go.”

The jerk slid off his barstool and put one palm up. “Listen, I don’t want any trouble. I just thought—”

“It’s fuckin’ obvious what you thought.” The stranger’s words were laced with fury, but he kept his volume low. Somehow it was even scarier than if he’d yelled. “Now get the fuck out of here, and don’t even look in her direction as you walk out, or you’ll be trying to do it with two broken legs.”

The jerk stood up taller, like he might be thinking of protesting, but he looked like a gerbil facing off against a Doberman. Then he adjusted his lapels and moved toward the exit without even glancing my way.

The stranger watched him go with hooded, hawklike eyes before looking down at me again. “You okay?”

“Yes.” But I was struggling to catch my breath.

“Can I bring you two another round?” the bartender asked.

The stranger looked at me. “Would you like another drink?”

I took a breath, willing myself to be brave. “Only if you’ll stay and have one with me.”

He hesitated, rubbing one hand along his jaw. “Okay. Sure.”

“Another martini for the lady and a Glenlivet on the rocks, coming right up,” said the bartender.

I perched on my barstool again, crossing my legs. “Thanks for coming to my rescue.”

“You’re welcome.” He sat down next to me. “I hope I didn’t insult you.”

“Insult me?”

“I didn’t mean to imply you couldn’t handle that jackass on your own.”

“Oh! Well, maybe I could have.” I laughed a little. “But I liked your way better.”

One side of his mouth twitched, setting off a thousand butterflies in my stomach.

“This round is on me,” I said as our drinks appeared.

He shook his head. “Not a chance.”

“But I’d like to repay you for standing up for me.”

“No payment necessary. Any gentleman would have done it.”

“Gentleman, huh?” I tilted my head and gave him a playful smile. I was a pretty good flirt when I wanted to be. “So you’re saying I’m safe with you?”

He didn’t answer right away, and I sat up a little taller in my seat. Slightly arched my back. But his eyes stayed put on mine. “You’re safe with me.”

Well, damn.

What on earth was I going to do about that?

My Review...

I am applauding Ms. Harlow for Millie! Curvy girls unite!

This story of Millie and Zack was so swoony and sweet, hot and heartbreaking, and filled with family. 

Millie is a girl after my own heart; she is my spirit sister! I love her confidence and her independence. I also loved her tenacity for what she wanted, and her vulnerability and love of family, and Zack was just ‘chef’s kiss’! 

Zack was perfection; he knew his strengths and his weaknesses. He had been blindsided by surprise news and was trying to process that along with the need he felt for Millie. I could understand his hesitant nature when it came to Millie.

Fate is such a huge component in this story, which I am such a fan of!

This story is a perfect blend of body positivity and self-confidence; age is only a number. This is a true love story of fighting through the obstacles standing in your way, physical and emotional. 

Well done, Ms. Harlow, well done!

Off Limits by Chelle Sloan is now live!

Professional football has an intense rulebook, but it’s the unwritten rules that come with the harshest consequences. The biggest one of all: don’t date your teammate’s sister. And if you do, don’t you dare fall in love with her. 
I never meant to fall, but when it comes to Brenna Donald, I don’t think I ever stood a chance. She’s everything I’m not; a light-hearted, wild child who shines brighter than the sun. Since that one fateful night in college, she’s had me under her spell—a spell I can’t break.
Not that it makes a difference. Not when she’s the sister of my best friend and the team quarterback. In his eyes, no one is good enough for Brenna—not even me.
I’ve never been one to break rules, but when it comes to Brenna, I’m not just breaking them. I’m taking a sledge hammer to them, and I don’t care. I love her, and by some miracle, she loves me too.
To be together, we have to rewrite the book. But can we? Or will we have to pick between playing by the rules or following our hearts.

My Review...

What a finale to a fun, swoony and overall phenomenal series.

This is the story of Cole and Brenna. They have been in each other’s lives forever. 

The flow of this story is perfect. To “see” the progression of Cole and Brenna’s relationship, from childhood friends to so much more. I loved the flashbacks when stories from their mutual childhood would reveal just how close they always were. 

The only monkey wrench is Brenna’s brother Bryce. And boy, does he wreak havoc on the blooming relationship.

You get all the feels with this story, swoons, smexy times, and the perfect pinch of angst that really makes you invested in these characters and cheer on their relationship.

Once I started this story, I was brought back to the world that Ms. Sloan has created and what a wild world that is. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next!

A spin-off from the #1 Amazon bestsellers, A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant To Be, USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn brings you a heart-warming, yet hilarious full-length novel on what life is like after the happily ever after.

Ryot Bisley is my husband.

Yes, the former third baseman for the Chicago Bobbies and absolute heart throb of the Windy City. That Ryot Bisley.

The first time I ran into him, he was grumpy, a horrific host, and left me on his sofa with nothing but a nylon baseball flag to use as a blanket.

The second time, he reluctantly bought me dinner, stared at my chest the entire night, and still sported that permanent frown.

The third time . . . well, that was a game changer. His smile captured me, his teasing charmed me, and his touches excited me.

So when he was called up to the majors that didn’t stop us from knocking it out of the park and all the way down the aisle.

Eleven years later…I’d love to say we’re happy as ever but the man who sent me dirty text messages every day is long gone and Mr. Frowny Face is back.

He’s so focused on trying to build a life after baseball that he doesn’t see the life we’ve already created together. . .so I make the hard decision and serve him divorce papers.

Problem is…my husband refuses to accept those papers. Instead, he has a new game plan that makes untying the knot of our marriage a little tricky. And just when I thought I wanted to be traded . . . he’s slowly, tantalizingly roping me back in.

My Review...

How does Ms. Quinn do it? How can she grab my heart, mind, and soul and manipulate them any way she sees fit?

This is the story of Ryot and Myla.

I really loved how this whole book was set up. I loved the flow and the flashbacks.

This is the story of marriage and the work that it takes to make it work. This is the story of vows made and vows forgotten. This is a story that is going to make you smile and cry. This is a story that is going to make you cheer hard for Ryot and Myla.

Myla is a character I always wanted to be but didn’t have the bravery to do so. She is honest to a fault, and I could understand the coping skills she had to create for herself from childhood. 

Ryot is gahhhh, he is amazing. Even with his flaws, he is something that every gal dreams about. 

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this story. I was completely taken in by the story. I could empathize and sympathize with both main characters. 

Being married myself, I could understand the dynamics, and I could relate to what they went through to fight and come to a new understanding and love.

The secondary characters, oh my, they bring such fun, levity and depth. 

Another phenomenal story from the extremely talented mind of Ms. Quinn.

Can this tormented prince accept love, or will he push his princess away forever?

Princess and the Player, an all-new neighbors-to-lovers romance featuring an NFL football player and a masquerade ball from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is now available!

A masquerade ball brings together an NFL player and a penniless princess in this smart and sexy romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.
Levelheaded Francesca Lane never thought she’d miss her own wedding. But when her fiancé betrays her, she puts on her wedding dress and ditches the altar for a masquerade ball—at an exclusive lifestyle club.
There, she meets unknown-to-her NFL star Tuck Avery, dressed as a prince and hiding behind a mask—he’s there to celebrate his birthday. For one night, Francesca and Tuck indulge in a wickedly incognito affair. No names. No strings. And the masks don’t come off.
Unfortunately, Francesca realizes quickly that her masked prince is the wealthy jock who lives in the penthouse of her apartment building. His hobbies include parties and supermodels—or so the tabloids say. Getting tangled up with a shallow jerk is the last thing Francesca needs right now, so she vows to keep Tuck from recognizing her (not that she’s his type anyway).
But fate has a teeny-tiny trick up her sleeve…a plus sign on a pregnancy test. Can this tormented prince accept love, or will he push his princess away forever?

My Review...

Well, Ms. Madden-Mills has done it again! 

This is the fast-paced story of Tucker and Francesca.

A night of decadence and some surprises are in store for this couple.

Both have scars from the past that have molded them into the people they are today. But their rough edges fit together perfectly.

I loved the independence and originality of Francesca. I admired the way she created her own family. 

Tucker was a charmer to the max, and I could understand his untrusting nature.

Tucker and Francesca’s chemistry was hotter than the hinges on Hades’ gates, and the smexy times made me both blush and melt!

I absolutely loved the secondary characters in this story; they made me laugh, and they made my heart swell. They brought levity when it was needed and the backbone when warranted. 

I never fail to fall hard for a story from the talented mind of Ilsa Madden-Mills, and this story is no exception.

See My Review Below!!!

What I wanted was for someone to teach me to be a better lover. I needed someone I trusted with my body without the fear of falling in love and someone who wasn’t looking for anything more than sex. And I needed a man who knew how to use his body.

That was where Cade Nichols came in. He was my older brother’s best friend and anti-commitment. And my brother just challenged him to sleep with only one woman for two months. So, I offered to help Cade win that bet. As long as he helped me learn my way around a cock.

What I didn’t bet on was life not going as planned.

RELEASES: October 25th

Meet Persephone Autumn!

Persephone lives in sunny Florida with her wife, crazy dog, and two lover-boy cats, and she’s never far from her daughter or grandpup. She’s an avid lover of ethnic food, especially Asian, and has fun discovering ways to veganize her favorite non-vegan foods. If given the option, she would get lost in nature on purpose.

For several years, she’s always done some form of writing. After pairing her poetry with images and posting them on social media, she received peer praise and started her novel writing journey.

Although her core style is romance, Persephone dips her toes in other genres from time to time. All stories deserve for their voice to be heard and she plans to write where the characters lead her.

My Review...

The second book of the artist duet is a beautiful, colorful finale.

The continuing story of Devlyn and Shelly is so beautifully written you can feel the love falling from the pages. You can “see” the colors in their world. 

These characters, especially Devlyn, are so complex and rich that it makes the reader really become one with him and, by association, Shelly. Devlyn’s path to self-forgiveness and self-discovery was powerful, and it was fulfilling to see. I was rooting for Devlyn’s success. 

Shelly is a beautiful soul; I could understand some of her hesitations. Her love for Devlyn was everything he needed, and in turn, Devlyn’s love for Shelly is what dreams are made of.

The relationship between Shelly and Devlyn is passionate and possessive. The chemistry is exactly what the other needs. To read how their love blooms and becomes even richer is poignant. 

Ms. Autumn has the ability to take the reader into the world she creates and makes the reader really become invested in her characters, and I found myself cheering them on to their happily ever after.

I wish I could see the artwork that Devlyn creates.
