Synopsis

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new sexy, romantic suspense standalone novel…

Daisy Smith has spent eighteen months of her life paying for a crime she didn’t commit. Now out of prison, she has only one focus—to get back custody of her younger brother, Jesse, who is deep in the foster care system. Desperate to rebuild her life and show the system that she is responsible enough to care for Jesse, she takes on the only job available to her—working as a maid at the Matis Estate.

On day one of her new job, Daisy meets Kastor Matis, the only son of the owners and her new boss. An enigmatic, handsome Greek god of a man, Kas is closed off, cold, and…well, kind of a bastard.

The more time Daisy spends around Kas, she starts to see there might be more to him than just his cold, bastard ways. He may actually have a heart beating in that frozen chest of his.

But Kas has secrets, too. Secrets that he’s determined to keep.

Secrets make Daisy curious.

And you know what curiosity can do…

Michel’s Review

Daisy Smith made a huge mistake.  She trusted the wrong man and lost everything.  After spending the last few years in prison for a crime she didn’t commit, she’s ready to get her life back on track.  She has to get custody of her younger brother back.  The first step is securing a job and finding a place to live.  She has to prove she is a stable person that lives a crime free life.

She lucked out when her best friend provided her with a home.  Her probation officer found her a job as a maid on the Matis Estate.  Keeping the job is another matter.  The estate manager is the elusive moody son of the owners.  He keeps sending Daisy mixed signals.  One moment he is curt and unapproachable, moments later he is compassionate and understanding.  He is a complete mystery.  A mystery she knows she must stay away from.  Her head tells her one thing and her heart tells her another.  She sees a wounded soul that has had a troubled journey in life just like she has had.  Maybe them working together is more than fate, maybe they were meant to heal one another.

Kastor Matis has lived a nightmare that no person should ever experience.  He has been emotionally dead, going through the motions but not living life.  When Daisy Smith comes to work for him, his soul begins to wake up.  It wants to live again.  First he must let go of the past.  In order to do that he has to follow through with his revenge.  His revenge could ruin Daisy’s future and hopes of getting her brother back.  The only thing to do is let her go and let her live the life she should of been living all along.

Samantha Towle has once again written a compelling story that is unlike anything she has written in her previous books.  Both characters were complex and in very difficult situations.  Life had not been kind to either one of them.  Love and happiness are theirs for the taking, they just need to learn how to reach for it and hold onto it.

I highly recommend Unsuitable by Samantha Towle.

Synopsis:

Edwin Allen Mercer

I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they’ve read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty.

Miranda Cross

All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me.

After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction. They’re only fiction…

New Cover…. The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan

the-fix-up-kendall-ryanFrom New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It’s not just that we’re friends, he’s also cocky, confident, and British, which means he’s a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he’s been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I’m not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

And then we start working together, and that’s when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I’ve harbored for him disappear, because there’s no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I’m stuck between a rock, and Sterling’s very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I’ve been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I’m not about to be cast aside like yesterday’s underwear when he’s done having fun.

Sterling’s never been told no, and he’s not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he’d fight so dirty.

“Hey, Camryn. Did I forget something at your office?” he asks.

“No, I just . . . I had some questions for you about tomorrow.”

“Of course. What’s on your mind?”

“Well, when you said hang out, what did you mean?”

Anna’s hand flies over her mouth and her eyes widen.

No sense in beating around the bush.

I can almost hear the smile in Sterling’s voice when he replies. “What do you want it to mean?”

Straightening my shoulders, I sit up taller in my chair. “Oh no, you don’t, mister. Before I agree to spend time with you, there are a few things I need to know.”

“Go for it.”

“How many women have you slept with?”

“Pardon?” Sterling coughs.

Anna is on her feet, making slashing motions across her throat with her hand.

“Your number. What is it?” My tone is calm, controlled. I’m actually enjoying this.

“Is that information you need as my publicist, or as the woman I’ve asked to hang out?”

“Just answer the question, Sterling. Or can you not count that high?”

He lets out a sigh, so brief I barely heard it. For a second, I’m sure he’s going to dodge the question. “Enough to know what I’m doing. Not enough to make me a total fucking wanker.”

I laugh, despite myself. It’s actually a good response.

“Let me make this clear for you. I like you, Camryn. We’re both adults, and there’s no reason why we can’t hang out and enjoy each other’s company without it turning weird.”

What the hell does that mean? I’m more confused now than before. Maybe this is his last hurrah before becoming a married man.

“I’m not quite sure what to say.”

“We have fun together. Let’s keep it casual and fun; we both deserve that.”

The man has a point.

“But you’re about to be married,” I say.

“Not tomorrow. Not the next day.”

“But soon.”

He exhales. “Yes, and that’s kind of stressing me the fuck out, so I could use a little downtime with someone who gets me.”

I swallow.

“Say yes,” he murmurs.

“Sterling . . .”

“I would never hurt you,” he adds softly.

“Fine, but I’m not having sex with you.”

Anna is now lying on the floor of my office, her face scrunched up in agony, her head in her hands.

“We’ll see,” he says.

A girly bubble of laughter escapes my lips, and I clamp a hand over my mouth. I want to bitch-slap myself for that outburst. But Sterling only seems amused.

Falling in love is easy.Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.

And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.

The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.

Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.

Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope—sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.

When Ty shows back up with a new found determination to put his family back together, Elin’s torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.

Life’s not always easy. Love’s not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it’s their love written in those scars that will hold them together … or break them apart.

Christmas Comes To Main Street

Briar Creek Series – Book 5

By Olivia Miles

Buy: Amazon / B & N / ITunes / Kobo

Synopsis

The mistletoe is out, and the gloves are off . . .
‘Tis the worst season to be single, but Kara Hastings won’t let a little Christmas funk spoil the festive season. Sure, running her own bakery is a little harder than she expected, but she can handle it. And she’ll prove it to a certain infuriatingly handsome, bossy Big City guy. She may be sugar and spice, but she can kick his butt twice.
Nate Griffin is in Briar Creek only for the holidays, and he refuses to fall for the whole “small town, candy cane-scented Christmas Wonderland” thing. He’s more interested in the fresh-faced cookie chef who always knows exactly how to get under his skin. So when Nate challenges Kara in the town’s big holiday contest, it’s not just the competition that starts to heat up. If he’s not careful, Kara won’t just melt his icy resolve against a small-town Christmas . . . she’ll melt his heart too.

Tracey’s Review

The holidays are upon the inhabitants of Briar Creek, and Kara Hastings and her cookies and gingerbread houses are in big demand. Kara barely has time to do anything besides make all of the cookies, but her bakery is a labor of love, and she’s determined to make a go of it. Nate Griffin, in town to spend the holiday with his elderly aunt, knows a thing or two about business and life in the big city, but spending time relaxing, not so much. Life in Briar Creek is very far away from his normal, and getting in touch with small-town life and into the Christmas spirit will be good for him. And maybe, just maybe, spending time with Kara will be good for him, too…

I’m not going to lie, Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. So while people are still getting excited about all things pumpkin, I’m looking forward to decking the halls and settling down with a nice cup of tea and a big pile of holiday books. Not that I want to speed by the rest of the autumn season, mind you, but there’s just something about Christmas that has always been extra-special to me. CHRISTMAS COMES TO MAIN STREET by author Olivia Miles is a perfect match for me right now, because it has all of the elements that make the idea of the holidays in a small, closely-knit community such the standard. Think IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, but moved forward to current day, with less of the angst and all of the feel-good moments.

I like Kara very much. Having lost her father at a young age, she’s spent much of her life trying to find her way. Opening her bakery is a way for her to honor her dad, and to feel his presence, and she is determined to prove the town nay-sayers wrong and make a real success of her new business. With Christmas just weeks away, Kara feels a little bit overwhelmed, so when Nate arrives, his head for business at the forefront even while on vacation, she’s happy to incorporate some of his ideas.

Nate is an interesting guy. For someone that has been judged so often over the course of his early life, he’s quick to form an opinion of Kara that could not be further from the truth. It doesn’t take much time for Briar Creek to work its magic on him, and, soon enough, Nate is finding that things are not necessarily as he thought. And when a friendly competition gets thrown into the mix, Nate and Kara will both be changed in more ways than they could have imagined.

CHRISTMAS COMES TO MAIN STREET is my first visit to Briar Creek, but it will not be my last. The characters, the small-town charm, the sense of family that is present throughout, makes this a series that I would like to see more of. 4 heartwarming, feel-good stars for this read. It’s time to start getting in the spirit, so add it to your TBR, grab your hot beverage of choice, and enjoy.
