The Giving Heart by Toni Blake - Review

Spend a white Christmas on Summer Island, where the fires are warm and the romance is hotter

Lila Sloan wonders why she ever thought house-sitting for her sister Meg on the remote Summer Island was a good idea. And to make matters worse, local real estate developer Beck Grainger is trying to cut down the beautiful trees that line the property. Lila can’t let this happen; Meg will never forgive her.
Beck can understand Lila’s anger—sort of. The trees are actually on the neighboring property, and the land was zoned for development months ago, so his plans were no secret. But he dislikes being at odds with his friend’s sister, especially because Lila is appealing in every way: loyal, quick-witted and completely stunning.
Lila hates that she’s so attracted to Beck, who seems like a genuinely good man, despite his tree-murdering tendencies. And their chemistry is off the charts. She just wishes he’d let this development go. As Summer Island counts down to a snowy Christmas, Lila and Beck w…

Come home to Safe Haven, where the best Christmas surprises aren’t the ones under the tree.

Holly Gibson has one wish this Christmas season: to find her young niece’s father. And she’s traveled hundreds of miles to the small town of Safe Haven to make that wish come true. But the mysterious Cash O’Dwyer is nothing like she expected. Strong and kind, he makes her heart beat faster. And suddenly that little secret she’s keeping about her sister stirs up all kinds of guilt…
Cash is stunned—and more than a little wary—to discover he’s a father. Having a family of his own was never part of his plan…until sweet baby Penny and her fiercely independent aunt Holly arrive in town. Now he’s trimming trees and stuffing stockings for three. But when the ghosts of Cash’s past threaten the future of his fragile new family, he’ll do whatever it takes to be the father Penny needs—and the man Holly deserves—for more than just the holidays.

Hearts are lighter and wishes burn a little brighter at Christmas…
Elizabeth was trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents and she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life.
And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger, or the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.
But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Eliz…

Sam Brandis was Tate Jones’s first: Her first love. Her first everything. Including her first heartbreak.
During a whirlwind two-week vacation abroad, Sam and Tate fell for each other in only the way that first loves do: sharing all of their hopes, dreams, and deepest secrets along the way.

Secret Obsession by Ann Mayburn - Review

Layla
From the moment of my birth I’ve been rejected by those who should have loved me, labeled as a freak because of my birthmark, bullied and tormented because I look different. When you’re told every day that you’re ugly and worthless you start to believe it. I managed to escape my malicious family and build a life for myself, but they’d broken something inside of me. I’m afraid to go outside, afraid to be around large groups of people, afraid of any type of confrontation and my panic attacks have left me pretty much house bound. If it wasn’t for my online friends I probably would have given up on life long ago. But there is one special friend, a man by the name of Mark, who keeps me going. He’s brave, smart, strong, and kind…and has no idea that I’m secretly in love with him.

On The Rebound by Anna Albo - Review

Image
Allie Stewart's new job is a dead end.
The Falcons, her uncle's professional hockey team, have been cellar dwellers for years, mostly because her penny-pinching uncle won't fund the team. And Allie isn't exactly a welcome sight.
Team management stuffs her where they won't have to deal with her: fundraising with the players' wives. It's not the job she got an MBA for, but she's never walked away from a challenge. Like management, the wives don't have much use for Allie, but she has an ally, the super-hot player representative, Will Cavallo.
As they work closely together, Allie can't help but be attracted to him. He's not like the other ego-inflated players. He's got a heart and the more she works with him, the harder it is to stay away from him. Little does she know that he has the same feelings for her, but the Falcons have a strict policy of no fraternization. Besides, she's a Stewart. She's completely off limits.
But Cavallo i…

Insta Crush by Kate Meader - Cover Reveal

Image
Chicago Rebels defenseman Theo Kershaw stole every scene in the last Rebels entry, GOOD GUY, so of course, he's getting his own book. And now I have the cover for INSTACRUSH to show you. Isn't it pretty? That guy's skin looks so smooth and velvety and touchable and ... okay, about the book! This is a surprise pregnancy romance, which is a trope I'm not usually a huge fan of. But I liked the idea of a big doofus man-child forced to grow up when faced with huge responsibilities. Then there's Elle, a heroine with secrets she's desperate to hide, but now finds herself knocked up by a famous pro athlete with an insanely rabid Instagram fan base. Kind of hard to stay under the radar when all your baby daddy wants to do is TELL EVERYONE!  INSTACRUSH will be available in ebook and print on December 10, and in audio early next year (date TBD). You can pre-order on Amazon, iBooks, and Nook. Kobo and GooglePlay links are coming soon.
