Swept into Love by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY



NEW RELEASE….
The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women's fiction.

In SWEPT INTO LOVE...
It's been years since Sally Tuft's husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she'd ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.

Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship--and their love--on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.

My Thoughts…

Gage and Sally are the couple all Melissa Foster Love in Bloom readers have been waiting for.    They have circled each other, flirted shamelessly, and been in love for so long that theirs was a story that had to be told.    Let me tell you right away this is the perfect, beautiful, wonderful, sexy, and loving story for them.  

The saying What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas is the perfect start for them.   In this case what happen in Vegas leads to heart ache, soul searching, opening of hearts, and learning to trust.    Leaving their business trip and heading home brings to their lives many tough decisions and opens their eyes to all that they mean to each other. 

I love Gage’s dirty mouth, sweet demeanor, and total thoughtfulness of Randy (Sally’s son).      The way he makes Sally blush and come out of her shell while not pushing her too far out of her comfort zone is perfect.    Sally is also willing to come out of her comfort zone to experience the full force of Gage.    The relationship between these two is hot, steamy, sweet, loving, and wonderful.    Everything these two deserve after their long….very long courtship.   

My favorite is catching up with past couples in the Love in Bloom series.     I love hearing about their relationships, their weddings, and their babies.  This is a series that I hope never ends.   I recommend picking up your own copy ASAP.

Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island.

Chased by Love, Love in Bloom: The Ryders #3

Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don't. When she's awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America's hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she's beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft--but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he's just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker's private world. He's coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he's not likely to change--until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself--and to him--that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls, concerned because she's been unable to reach her best friend, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind--will Addison be his first failed rescue?

More Than a Risk

by Kennedy L. Mitchell 
Publication Date: August 17, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Purchase: Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Google Play | Kobo
Is a life worth living if you don’t risk it all for the one you love? Shot and left for dead, Dr. Kate Wheeler doesn’t know what to expect when she wakes in a hospital room, especially she sees him. It would take a lot to win her back after abandoning her when she needed him most, which he is prepared to do, but Kate has never been one to give in easily. A surprise visit from a friend pulls Kate into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a local business man, full of dark secrets. It’s up to Kate to bring this man down knowing her father, the Dallas DA, won’t prosecute without evidence; evidence she is willing to do anything to get. With the love of her life shadowing her every move, will Kate risk losing him to save the lives of others? When Kate’s charade takes a dangerous turn will Weston be enough to bring her back from the edge, or is it too late for it to matter? Hearts and lives are at risk and Kate and Weston’s fiery relationship returns in this second book of the More Than a Threat series.

More Than a Threat

by Kennedy L. Mitchell Publication Date: March 10, 2017 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Purchase: Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Google Play | Kobo
In the face of danger, the thin line between love and hate is blurred and rules are broken. But are these two prepared to face the consequences? Dr. Kate Wheeler is an independent, feisty emergency medicine doctor with a perfect life, or at least that’s what everyone sees from the outside. Her world is turned upside down when she is forced to allow twenty-four-seven protection, disrupting her independent lifestyle leaving Kate to adjust, or not. She finds herself in uncharted territory as she balances a new love interest at work, never being alone and dodging multiple attempts on her life. If it weren’t for her two best friends by her side the stress would be too much, even for her to handle. Her newly assigned security detail, Casey Weston, is harsh, dismissive, and overbearing. His sexy, strong body and bad boy tattoos are just the exterior to this thoughtful man who has secrets of his own. As he works to keep Kate at arm’s length he finds himself equally frustrated and fascinated by this woman who pushes his boundaries. Weston’s rules are intense and focused solely on keeping her alive. But as time goes on will his better judgement falter? Tempers and emotions flare when these two headstrong individuals go head to head, both used to having their own way and unwilling…or too afraid…to give an inch. With Kate’s life in the crosshairs and Weston determined to protect her, will their future be happily ever after or torn apart by the same threat that brought them together?

About Kennedy L. Mitchell

I live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony). Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel. When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”). My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.

The Salt House by Lisa Duffy

The Salt House by Lisa Duffy   is part of the SheReads Fall book selections.     She Reads is a community of bloggers that as a group help promote specific books.   We share reviews, thoughts, and our feelings after reading books suggested to us by the wonderful people who run the She Reads Organization. 


Paperback, 304 pages
Published June 13th 2017 by Touchstone

In the tradition of Jodi Picoult and Lisa Genova, this gorgeously written, heartbreaking, yet hopeful debut set during a Maine summer traces the lives of a young family in the aftermath of tragedy.

In the coastal town of Alden, Maine, Hope and Jack Kelly have settled down to a life of wedded bliss. They have a beautiful family, a growing lobster business, and the Salt House—the dilapidated oceanfront cottage they’re renovating into their dream home. But tragedy strikes when their young daughter doesn’t wake up from her afternoon nap, taking her last breath without making a sound.

A year later, each member of the Kelly family navigates the world on their own private island of grief. Hope spends hours staring at her daughter’s ashes, unable to let go. Jack works to the point of exhaustion in an attempt to avoid his crumbling marriage. Their daughters, Jess and Kat, struggle to come to terms with the loss of their younger sister while watching their parents fall apart.

When Jack’s old rival, Ryland Finn, threatens his fishing territory, he ignites emotions that propel the Kelly family toward circumstances that will either tear them apart—or be the path to their family’s future.

Told in alternating voices, The Salt House is a layered, emotional portrait of marriage, family, friendship, and the complex intersections of love, grief, and hope. 

My Thoughts…

The Kelly Family is suffering from grief.    The problem is that they don’t suffer together.   Each member is suffering in their own way and trying to come to terms accepting the loss of their baby sister/daughter.    

I felt that Lisa Duffy was able to portray the grief in realistic ways that made the family true to life.  I cannot imagine dealing with the loss of a daughter, much less a baby.   Hope tugged at my heart while watching her try to keep her family together.   She worked hard just to keep her head above water and keep her family “normal” especially for the other daughters.     While Jack, the father, kept his grief quiet, inside himself.     He struggled just like the rest of the family yet he kept it bundled up inside.     Add to this grief the return of an old rival and he is just set to implode.  

This is a debut author for Lisa Duffy and I am excited to read more from her.     The characters came to life, the emotions were realistic, and the story was beautiful.
I recommend finding a quiet place and sitting back to enjoy The Salt House.  Once you start you won’t be able to put it down.

Thank you to the She Reads Organization and Leah Morse at Touchstone Books for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Single-Minded by Lisa Daily

Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: June 27th 2017 by Thomas Dunne Books
Alex has planned and executed her life with laser focus since she first met her future husband at the play-doh table on the first day of kindergarten. They have a terrific life, a gorgeous house on the bay, and fantastic careers they love. There's only one problem: Alex's husband Michael is gay, a fact he neglected to mention in the 23 years since they first met.

Now, Alex's perfectly planned life has completely fallen apart, her biological clock is starting to feel like the timer on a nuclear device, and she finds herself drooling over her completely-dreamy-but-definitely-off-limits client, a star chef opening a hot new restaurant. Armed with dating guidance from her oddball collection of advisers including her gay ex-husband, a foul-mouthed political consultant, a perkily masochistic yogi, and a pot-smoking octogenarian Alex navigates the booby-trapped world of modern dating, in her search for a second chance at love.

My Thoughts…

Single-Minded is an emotional book.    A woman, Alex, marries the love of her life since kindergarten then finds out he is gay.      A divorce and getting back into the dating world are all a lot to handle.   Much less her friends telling her she has to date the Naughty Nine, 9 guys to sleep with before she finds Mr. Right, it is no wonder that she is overwhelmed in life.   

While there are a lot of different emotions in the book it is also funny and enjoyable.    I love how quick her friends are to jump to help her no matter the situation she finds herself in.   Darcy always seems to have the most crazy ideas and never fails to share them and pull the rest of Alex’s friends, including her ex-husband, into the schemes.  

This is a book that threw me back on my heals a couple times with the emotions that rocked Alex and then in the next paragraph I was giggling at the men she met, the way her friends were acting, or just her life in general.   I enjoyed every page of Single-Minded and recommend picking up your own copy.

Thank you Jessica Lawrence and Kristopher Kam at St. Martin’s Press for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Fated for Love: Love in Bloom: The Bradens Written by: Melissa Foster Narrated by: B.J. Harrison

Fated for Love: Love in Bloom: The Bradens


Publisher's Summary

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing - and maybe having a few too many drinks on her girls' weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is...until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden - the subject of her late-night fantasies.
Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he's the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.
Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he's there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie's influence, Wes might even discover that he's been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other's arms, and they're about to find out just how alike they really are.


My Thoughts…

I have listened to all the Braden’s books so far and all the Love in Bloom books. They are only getting better and better. Wes is a confirmed bachelor until he meets Callie. I loved the hot looks in the library, the ruse of needing books to read and Callie picking them out for him, and the control they both have until they hit the ranch. I usually love the anticipation of the getting them together. With this book the anticipation was not held off for very long and I am so glad. The steam and sparks between Callie and Wes was evident from their first meeting and quickly got hotter and hotter with each scene.

My favorite part of this book was actually Callie’s girlfriends. The fact that they tricked her into going to the ranch, knowingly putting her in a position where she would be uncomfortable and forced to face some of her fears, showed how much they loved her and wanted her to step out of her comfort zone. I loved their shared laughs and private jokes. They way they could raze each other one minute and the next be laughing and smiling showed just how deep and real their friendships are

If you have not ever read a Melissa Foster book you are seriously missing out on some amazing stories. I highly recommend her as an author and this series as a fun and easy read.

Skylar Crosby knows betrayal. She knows the deep stab when those closest to you deceive your fragile trust. And she knows what it's like when your secrets cost you everything––including the love of your life.

Now kidnapped, scared, and alone, Skylar has no reason to believe in her rescue. Not when she can still see the look on Brandon's face when she smashed his heart to pieces. Even if Skylar can get out of her physical prison, can she escape the cage created by her guilt?

Brandon Sterling spent the last fifteen years desperately trying to reinvent himself: as a lawyer, a businessman, and now a candidate for public office. But as these daily stressors mount alongside a dangerous threat to his family and loved ones, the old Brandon reemerges: a ruthless hoodlum who'd rather use fists than brains to solve his problems.

The Book of Emma Reyes by Emma Reyes Promo and GIVEAWAY

A literary discovery: an extraordinary, posthumously published memoir of a Colombian woman’s harrowing childhood

THE BOOK OF EMMA REYES
A Memoir
by Emma Reyes
Translated with an Introduction by
Daniel Alarcón


“This gem of a book . . . is a triumph of hope and resilience.”
Julia Alvarez, bestselling author of
How the García Girls Lost Their Accents

“A diamond in the rough . . . You’ll wonder how it is that some children survive their childhood, and you’ll surely be thankful for your own.”
Ana Castillo, author of So Far from God

“What an astonishing book—I read it in a single gulp. Emma Reyes had a childhood of staggering deprivation, but her humor and resilience shine through, and suddenly we have a modern classic.”
Deborah Moggach, New York Times bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

“A truly heroic account . . . There’s not a drop of sentimentality in it—just the kind of courage born of the most desperate adversity.” —Edith Grossman, translator of Don Quixote and author of Why Translation Matters


A literary discovery and instant classic when first published in Colombia in 2012, THE BOOK OF EMMA REYES (Penguin Classics Hardcover; On-sale: August 8, 2017; $24.00; ISBN: 9780143108689) chronicles the harrowing childhood of Emma Reyes before she escaped poverty and life in a Catholic convent to become an artist and intellectual with friends such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.

Comprised of letters written over the course of thirty years, and translated and introduced by acclaimed Peruvian-American writer Daniel Alarcón, THE BOOK OF EMMA REYES describes in vivid, painterly detail the remarkable courage and limitless imagination of a young girl growing up with nothing. Emma was an illegitimate child, raised in a windowless room in Bogotá with no water or toilet and only ingenuity to keep her and her sister alive. Abandoned by their mother, she and her sister moved to a Catholic convent housing 150 orphan girls, where they washed pots, ironed and mended laundry, scrubbed floors, cleaned bathrooms, sewed garments and decorative cloths for the nuns—and lived in fear of the Devil. Illiterate and knowing nothing of the outside world, Emma escaped at age nineteen, eventually establishing a career as an artist and befriending European and Latin American artists and intellectuals, among them Jean-Paul Sartre, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alberto Moravia, and Elsa Morante.

Emma was illiterate when she escaped the convent and yet went on to recount her childhood in letters that compelled her compatriot Gabriel García Márquez to be her champion. Far from self-pitying, the portrait that emerges from this clear-eyed account inspires awe at the stunning early life of a gifted writer whose talent remained hidden for far too long.
