Release Day Blast! CORSICA GATE by Robena Grant

Enter to Win a $20.00 Amazon or B&N eGift Card

A heroine who has stopped believing in fairy tales and happy endings, Dia Sophia Romani, jilted three days before her wedding, has lived with Mama in San Diego’s Little Italy for six months. She’s tired of everything Italian, and is ready to move on…

Enter an unlikely hero. Carlo Antonelli is of Italian descent. He adores Dia, but he’s willing to take his time and not rush her. When he learns she will be vacationing in Italy and Corsica, he must step up his game.

Will a wish made at a magical gate destroy, or strengthen, their newfound love?

“You mean…?” She looked back at the guy.

Nah, impossible. I’ve never been that lucky.

“Yeah, that’s Carlo Antonelli.”

“You don’t want to accept the date, just make up whatever excuse you want.” Tony beckoned.

A jolt of heat spread through her abdomen when Carlo grinned and waved. He ducked through the slow moving traffic and stopped in front of her smiling a crooked smile. Pushing his sunglasses onto his h…

Release Day Blast! SWEET SURPRISE by Candis Terry

Join the Hunt (See Details Below)

Playing naughty or nice . . .

Fiona Wilder knows all about falling in lust. Love? That's another story. Determined not to repeat past mistakes, the single mom and cupcake shop owner is focused on walking the straight and narrow. But trouble has a way of finding her. And this time it comes in the form of a smoking hot firefighter who knows all the delicious ways to ignite her bad-girl fuse. Can lead to heartbreak . . .

Firefighter Mike Halsey learned long ago that playing with fire just gets you burned. He's put his demons behind him, and if there's one line he won't cross, it's getting involved with his best friend's ex. But when fate throws him in the path of the beautiful, strong, and off-limits Fiona, will he be able to fight their attraction? Or will he willingly go down in flames? Or a sweet surprise!

The rodeo came to town over the weekend, and I am so excited that I got to go this year! I haven't been to a rodeo since I was...gosh, I think I was thirteen. Yikes that's a long time! LOL.

It was so much fun! They started the night off with some Liberty Work, which amazes me every time I see it. I've never had the opportunity to see it in person, so this was a real treat for me. I've only ever seen Liberty Work done on the show Heartland (love that show) so it was really neat to finally experience it in real life. I did get some pictures, but I only had my phone so they aren't the greatest pictures--I'm going to post them anyway :)

There was also some Roman Riding and Trick Riding--which was AWESOME! This young girl performed along with the woman who did the Liberty Work and she was so good!

And of course I can't leave out the Bareback Riding, Barrel Racing, and Bull Riding!

Such a great time, and I even got to meet some of the riders afterwards! I absolut…

Favorite Song Friday - "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran

Fridays are now dedicated to my current favorite song :) Aboout 90% of the time my radio is tuned to a local country station. I love country music <3 But the other 10% of the time I listen to pretty much whatever fits my mood. So yesterday I heard this beautiful song for the first time and instantly became obsessed. And the music video for it is by far one of the best I have ever seen. I love the dancing, I love the camera work, I love the emotion behind it all--I JUST LOVE IT!!!

Random Wednesday Post

^ How do you like that post title? LOL. I'm not really a fan of titling my blog posts, mainly because I just never know what to call them.


I missed a few blogging days so I thought I'd stop in real quick and say "Hi." Luke's book has been keeping me pretty busy, and I know I keep saying this but I'm having SO much fun writing it. As with my other books, I have my trusty readers (aka. my mom and my best friend) on task of reading the story as I write it. They are loving it so far! One of my favorite comments was from my best friend the other day. She texted me after reading what I'd just given her and said, "OMG! I am cracking up over here." I love bringing humor into my stories and giving people a little chuckle with my characters' antics :)

Hope y'all are having an awesome day!

Sexy Saturday: Teaser from ZANE

Excerpt from ZANE
“Close your eyes,” he whispered and smiled crookedly at her confused expression. “Please, Andi. I’m not going to do anything weird or hurt you. Now, close your eyes.” Slowly her eyes fluttered shut and she was consumed in darkness with nothing but the sound of the frogs and the crickets and the water rippling around their bodies. Zane moved his hand to tangle his fingers in the damp, thick locks at the back of her neck as he slowly pulled her closer to him. His lips brushed against hers with careful, fleeting movements. Once. Twice. And on the third he parted his lips slightly, dipping his tongue out to trace her bottom lip. He moved both of his hands then, cupping her jaw with his thumbs resting in the hollow point beneath her ears. When Zane moved in to kiss her again, Andi parted her lips and welcomed him most eagerly. His touch was soft, tender, and oh so thorough. Her head was buzzing from the slow, torturous kisses and that intoxicating feeling began to travel thr…

Review! EMMYLOU by Krista Kedrick

Overachieving Emmylou Bennett is working hard to reach baking greatness and prove her parents wrong. But her dream is quickly slipping through her fingers as one catastrophe follows another. Let’s not even talk about her train-wreck of a love life. Isn’t there one good man in this little prairie town?

And he can’t get her off his mind. Every day he fights his growing attraction to the feisty baker who is stealing his hardened heart.

Can Shane and Emmylou overcome every obstacle to be together or will the past be too much for their love to handle?

In this second book of The Doves of Primrose by Krista Kedrick, we follow the story of Emmylou Bennett and Shane Newbury.
When we meet Emmylou in this book she is recovering from a recent break-up with the man she thought she’d spend her life …

Cover Reveal! DEATH AND DESIRE by P. H. Turner

Death and Desire P.H. Turner Releasing March 17th, 2015 Lyrical Press

Ancient rituals. Up-to-the minute deception.
Reporter Taylor McWhorter knows something is going on at the newly reopened uranium mine on the local Navajo reservation. The Native workers are being fired. Rumors of bad Native American spirits and shapeshifters mingle with the stink of leach pit mining. The rough red mountains and steep canyons hide more passes and getaway trails than any maze. And Taylor’s sources keep turning up dead…

Until she meets Captain Trace Yazzie, head of the tribal police force and plenty to reckon with on his own. The chemistry between them is enough to incinerate Taylor’s rule about mixing business and pleasure. But with a murderer on the loose, priceless Navajo artifacts turning up in the wrong places, and Trace’s suggestion that spirits disturbed from looted burial sites might be part of the problem, Taylor can’t afford to lose her head to lust. This might be the story of the year. But unless…

Sexy Saturday: Teaser from NORAH

Soooo, I thought it might be fun to start something new on my blog and share some sexy teasers from my published books :) I would also like to go ahead an extend an open invitation for all of my fellow romance authors to join me! If you're interested in sharing a sexy teaser from any of your published novels, please contact me at

Excerpt from NORAH

“I don’t know what it is about you, Norah,” he said, deepening his voice into a throaty rumble. “But I just can’t seem to get enough of you.” Norah placed her own beer on the table next to his. She then brought her hands to the back of his neck and slid them up so she could run her fingers through the hair on the back of his head. “So what are you gonna do about it?” Norah asked, her voice breathless and sexy. That comment shocked the hell out of him. Of all the responses he’d imagined her saying, that wasn’t one of them. Instantly turned on by her directness, Chase cupped her jaw in both of his hands and reel…

Country Music Friday: "Lonely Eyes" by Chris Young


So, I did something new...

For the first time in my writing career, I wrote the synopsis for my book before I've even completed it. Does anyone else do that? I'm such a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of writer, so most of the time when I go into a story I'm not really sure where I'll end up (even though I have a general idea of what I want to happen for my characters). But this time it's just different for some reason.

So the synopsis or blurb, whatever you want to call it, for Luke's book is done--as is the cover. I am itching to share it but I know I need to hold off for just a little bit because I'm still in the early stages of the story :) I know that's such a horrible tease, but I promise I'll share it as soon as I can.

Announcing the re-release of WHEN THE HEART FALLS

I am so excited to be announcing the re-release of my first novel, WHEN THE HEART FALLS, with this brand new beautiful cover! I've submitted the updated manuscript to Amazon and Barnes & Noble so it should be available very soon. For those of you who've read and love the original story, don't worry I didn't change any of that :) The only thing I did to the manuscript was fix some minor errors I found and clean it up just a little. The paperback version received a beautiful new face lift as well and I cannot wait to receive my physical copy.
So what do y'all think of the new cover? I'd love to hear your thoughts so please feel free to leave a comment below.

Seeking Book Blogs

I'm really trying to stick to my goal of blogging more this year, but along with that I want to start visiting other blogs and following more people. I really enjoy reading romances and would love to follow more blogs related to that genre of books. So if you have a book blog or know of any awesome ones I should check out please leave a link in the comments below. Looking forward to spending more time with y'all this year!!!

Doing some edits and an excerpt...

I mentioned a couple of posts ago on my Facebook page that I'm in the process of going through my first novel, WHEN THE HEART FALLS, and doing some minor edits to the manuscript--just fixing some errors that I've found. So after reading through it, I kind of forgot how cute of a story it was, LOL. Dylan and Misty just make me smile, so I thought I'd share an excerpt of one of my favorite scenes 

Dylan let out an exasperated sigh. “Misty, please move. I’ve got work to do.”
“No. Not until you talk to me and we get this straightened out. Now where did you get the idea that I was taking Brad back?”
He dropped the bale of hay at his feet, removed his work gloves, and threw them on the floor. “I heard the two of you talking at the hospital.”
“What exactly did you hear?”
“Enough,” he said and took a seat on the bale of hay.
“Well obviously you heard wrong because the conversation I had with him didn’t end with me saying that I’d take him back,” she said heatedly.
“Misty, I heard you tel…
