available now!

Blurb

Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I'm not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that's what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money - and women - than I know what to do with. But what you don't see is the wreckage I've caused. The memories and pain I can't escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn't work. It hurt me and - worse - it hurt my band. That's the last thing I want to do, so I'm cleaning up my act... starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice - Delaney is the perfect "girlfriend." When I'm with her I don't have to pretend. It's like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that's dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn't actually exist. He's a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it's impossible to love a lie, right?

My twin brother’s talked me into a lot of crazy things, but taking his place on a road trip with his girlfriend so he can party with his friends is a whole new level of insanity.

Review Blitz for Mister Tonight by Kendall Ryan






 


From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a standalone romance about a swoony single dad and the new neighbor he falls for.

Last night was the most embarrassing night of my life.

I was THAT girl.

You know, the highly intoxicated chick celebrating her thirtieth with her two best friends—the ones who are happily married. And the more I drank, the more I wanted to do something reckless to celebrate.

By reckless, I meant the sexy and alluring man dressed in a business suit standing near the bar. You know his type—tall, dark, and handsome. I was sure he was out of my league, but I'd had just enough alcohol that things like that no longer seemed to matter. I'm not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like French fries, so there's that.

He took me home and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life, well until it came to a screeching, and rather unwelcome halt.

There's nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking:

"What are you doing to my daddy?"

Just kill me now…... or so I thought.

Come to find out the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.

Kim's 4 Star Review


Kate just wanted to celebrate her 30th birthday with her married friends and maybe spend one night with the gorgeous guy standing at the bar.  Knowing he was way out of her league and having enough liquid courage in her system she made her way over to him and then to his house. What was supposed to be a one night of hot birthday sex turned out to be more than she expected.

I was gifted the book in exchange for an honest review.

Kate prides herself on being a strong independent woman who doesn’t need or want a relationship.  Her skewed view of them comes from seeing how badly her sister’s marriage ended.  She believes that all she needs is a night with a guy and her life and her heart will be safe and protected.  Turning thirty wasn’t a big deal for her.  With her current roommate newly engage, she is looking for a new place to live but finding one that will also double as her office space for her to write her gossip column and in her price range hasn’t been easy.

Hunter’s life isn’t like most men his age.  He was a single father to a 4 year old little girl, Maddie who took up most of his time.  Hunter loved her having her all to himself but like any parent, he needed some adult time.  Going to the bar for a drink and maybe a casual fling to break his six month dry spell seemed like a good idea at the time.  Seeing Kate across the bar in her killer dress caught his attention but having her come to him just made his night.  Bringing her home may not have been the best idea he had, especially since he hadn’t told her about his daughter.  What could possibly go wrong other than having his daughter walk in on them or having Kate run out without knowing how to contact her?

Kate and Hunter are polar opposites when it comes to what they want out of life.  Kate is against relationships and has always stuck to casual flings.  Hunter on the other is looking for the one to spend the rest of his life with.  He doesn’t have a shortage of woman asking him out but what they see is a single dad not a man. Hunter wants to be seen for who he is and not what is he.  Kate seen him, as the man not the father.

The moment Kate and Hunter met sparks flew.  Their attraction is undeniable.  Both Kate and Hunter know it.  When fate brought them together more than once, it’s hard for Kate to fight.  She wants to finish what they started before Hunter’s daughter walked in on them.  She has never felt anything like this before towards any guy she even met. Hunter is everything she wanted and doesn’t want all rolled into one.  Fate seems to have its own idea and keeps pushing these two together. 

What I found intriguing was that Kate, the admitted commitment-phobe was challenge by a 4 year old who won the not only Kate’s heart but mine too.  Both Hunter and Kate try to be friends while having a casual fling but couldn’t keep their hands off each other. When Hunter does as Kate requested, she finds herself realizing that may be just maybe she isn’t quite so ready to give up the one man who makes her feel amazing in many different ways. I love how Maddie gives Kate the cold shoulder when she shows up at their house again to rent the garage apartment. Maddie is a smart little girl, who may be too smart for her own good but is great at protecting her father for what she sees as an unwelcome intrusion into their life. I think that Maddie making Kate work for her acceptance actually worked in Hunters favour.  He may have been willing to give Kate the casual fling she wanted but it was a far cry from what he wanted.  He knew the attraction between them was something both couldn’t fight but waiting for Kate to finally see what he already knew was going to take a great deal of his patience.

Kendall took two very different characters and brought them together, while adding a 4 year old little girl to the story. This turned out to be one of the best recipes for a hilarious yet amazing love story I’ve read this year.  This is one story I know I’ll be reading over again!

Release Blitz for The Upside of Falling by Meghan Quinn





THE UPSIDE OF FALLING By Meghan Quinn
The Blue Line Duet



Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.
Be somebody’s hero.
That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.


I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.


And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.
Focus. Resolve. Determination.
But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.
One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.


Smart. Charming. Beautiful.
Rory changed everything.
Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.
Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.












THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE – July 5th

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved. This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would. This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself. No, this is my story. A story about sacrifice. A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl. A story I wish I never had to tell. This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.


         


About the Author



Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

THE DISTILLER'S DARLING
by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

Available Now


Blurb

Irish whiskey royalty has no place in Northern California, but that isn't going to stop Iain Brennan, the black sheep of Brennan Family Distillers, from giving it a shot. Wine Country is an unlikely place to launch a whiskey empire, but Iain’s just reckless enough to make it work. And being out from under the watchful eye of his disapproving father back home in Dublin? Even better.


Naomi Klein has spent the last ten years ignoring her society family as much as possible while building a career as a renowned sculptor. She’s found a home in River Hill, but has no interest in dipping her toes into the commitment pool. Just the idea of forever gives her hives. Which makes a rootless Irish wanderer the perfect fling. And shocking her mother? Just a bonus.

But as cozy autumn nights turn into lazy winter mornings, Naomi and Iain realize that they’re getting close to something neither of them wants: love. When Naomi discovers Iain’s not quite as rootless as he seems, she’ll have to make some tough decisions. And when the Brennans and the Kleins descend en masse to collect their prodigal children, River Hill may never be the same.

EXCERPT

Naomi slowly opened one eye and examined the ceiling until she remembered where she was. Ah, yes. The gala. The hotel. The Irishman. Yum. She yawned and stretched, feeling the burn of muscles well-used. Iain’s elevator antics had been just the start of their fun last night.

Fortunately, his room was only on the fifth floor. The elevator’s security cameras might have burst into flames if they’d traveled any higher. They’d stumbled out of the compartment and down the hall in a haze of lust, and her dress and his pants had dropped on top of each other right inside the door to his room. And then … well.

Naomi pointed her toes and smiled, feeling satisfaction spread like warmth through her body as the muscles in her legs stretched and loosened. They’d had a very good night. Iain had made good—very good—on his dirty promises of a feast. Her body had been his appetizer, entrée, and dessert … and then she’d returned the favor happily. They’d spent a great deal of time gasping, panting for breath, and moaning—and quite a bit of time laughing as well.

On the whole, she thought, definitely a night to remember.

And now it was time for the part that sometimes turned awkward: leaving.

She turned in the bed, and found him watching her through lowered lashes. “Hello,” she said.

“Good morning.” Iain reached out a lazy arm and wrapped it around her waist, tugging her body flush against his. She relaxed against his warmth for a moment, then stretched up for a quick kiss.

“Can I use your shower?”

“Be my guest,” he said with a yawn.

She slid out of the bed with a final pat on his extremely well-muscled thigh. “Thanks.”

Knowing Iain was watching her walk naked through the room, she put a bit of flair into her bend as she snagged her dress from the floor on the way into the bathroom. She heard a quick intake of breath behind her and grinned. It was nice to leave a lasting impression.

Excerpt

I lifted my head and looked at Cruz.  There was nothing but genuine concern and worry in his face.

“I’m sorry,” I croaked.

His face went soft.  “Lexi, what just happened?”

“I should have told you sooner.  They told me not to wait, but I was scared.”

“Who?” he asked.  “Told me what?”

I took in a deep breath and closed my eyes.  After I let it out, I opened them and gave it to him.  “My brothers.  They told me the other day not to wait to tell you the truth.”

I paused a moment before continuing, “Nearly four years ago, when I was at the end of my freshman year in college, I was raped.”

The air around us became frighteningly thick with a mix of anger and tension.  Nearly all of it was radiating from the man in front of me.

“I should have said something before,” I repeated.

“Why didn’t you?” he asked, his voice hoarse.

“I was scared.”

“Of what?”

“You,” I sighed.

“Lexi, I would never hurt you.  Ever,” he responded.  I was certain I heard a bit of disappointment in his response. 

I shook my head, upset that he misunderstood what I was saying.  “I know that.  Oddly enough, somehow, I know that.”

I paused a minute.

Cruz left me to it.  Then, I continued, “I like you a lot, Cruz.  You are the first man I’ve been attracted to since it happened.”

“What triggered your panic attack?”

My eyes filled with tears and my voice was shaky when I confessed, “My arms being pinned above my head.”

A tear leaked from my eye.  Cruz watched it fall.

“Lexi, I’m so sorry.”

I nodded and agreed, “Me too.”

A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years.

Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, she enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).
