Book Cover Reveal for Next Time I Fall by Scarlett Cole………

 A rockstar burned by love finds himself snowed in with the woman who will change his life irrevocably in this angsty contemporary romance that picks up right where the previous book in this series ended.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of Next Time I Fall by Scarlett Cole, then start counting down the days until this second installment in the Excess All Areas series hits shelves on November 16th!

Love sucks.
Especially when your own brother and fellow band-mate stole the woman you were in love with.
Sitting in a Michigan recording studio with him, singing lyrics he wrote about her, is a special kind of torture. The only thing more frustrating might be the producer’s assistant who radiates sunshine and has more motivational quotes than a greeting card company.
Love rocks.
Heavy guitars, a voice with the burn of pure single malt, and lyrics that distil the meaning of love are the greatest things.
If only the man singing didn’t have a temperament as foul as the Michigan winter. Jase sitting in her car while yelling at her to get him out of there is a surprise. Why she hits the accelerator and takes him to her father’s cabin on the lake is an even greater mystery.
How was she supposed to know they’d end up snowed in for days? Or that when they got out again, their relationship, and her views on love, would be changed irrevocably?




The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada where I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.
I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.

Sometimes coming home opens the door to discovering something new.
After Coach Diaz’s funeral, Alex Burke realized there was nothing left for him in Boston, especially after he found out his girlfriend had moved on. Moving back to Colorado, and bonding with his college friends, is what Alex needed to get his life back in order.
Catherine Anderson grew up in the shadow of Coach Diaz’s daughter. The best friend that was always overlooked, Catherine had reservations about the men who had been Coach’s Fabulous Five, especially Alex Burke who always had eyes for Rachel, and didn’t even know Catherine existed.
Coming together to mutually help Rachel through hard times, Catherine and Alex realize they’d had eyes for one another back when. Perhaps now that Alex was home, it would be a good time to explore an adult relationship. But when news out of Boston rocks his world, it just might be more than Catherine can handle.


Alex took the brush from her and set it on top of the open can of paint. “Do you dance?”
Now he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer. Her eyes were wide as she studied him. She might have thought he was crazy, but she wasn’t pushing him away.
A few measures later, she finally lifted her arms and swayed with him. “This is silly,” she chuckled, shaking her head.
“Spontaneous,” he corrected as he pulled her a little closer. “It’s supposed to be romantic, right? Stopping what you’re doing and dancing?”
Her eyes went wide. “Are you trying to be romantic?” “Am I not good at it?”
Catherine blinked and he could see her lip tremble. “I asked you first,” she said and her voice shook.
Alex slowed his sway. Maybe he was trying to be romantic. Maybe that was why he felt the need to show up at her house with flowers and wine.
He slowed even more, until they were simply standing in the bathroom—his hands on her hips, her arms around his neck.
“I guess I am,” he said looking down into her blue eyes.
Catherine swallowed hard and ran her tongue across her pink lips. “Then I guess you’re good at it.”
The ball was back in his court, he decided. He could let go of her and pick up the paint roller, or he could take the next step and see what happened.
Catherine’s fingers began to make circles at the nape of his neck, and now he trembled.
Lowering his mouth, until his was only a breath from hers, he stopped and locked eyes with her. Her baby blues were soft before they disappeared behind her eyelids, and he knew then she wanted the kiss he was contemplating as much as he did.

Book Blast for Inked & Sweet By Megan Slayer (GIVEAWAY)…..

After his addictions took him away from the only family he knows, a man finds himself reconnecting with the woman he's never forgotten.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Inked & Sweet By Megan Slayer, then discover even more about this book by visiting the other sites hosting this tour.  In honor of this third installment in the Malachi Brothers series, make sure to fill out the form below for the chance for US readers to win a prize pack with a handmade necklace included too!

Dante Malachi screwed his life up to epic proportions. His addictions nearly killed him before he hit rock bottom. Getting kicked out of the Malachi family was his motivation to clean up his act, but leaving his old life behind meant leaving her, as well. Rona’s the one he never forgot.
Rona never wanted to see Dante again. She blames him for the bad in her life -- but also most of the good. When he comes back into her orbit, she knows she has to let him in -- or get rid of him for good.
When a bomb threat throws them together, it’s up to Rona and Dante to decide if they want to extinguish the desire between them or reignite their fiery passion.


One year later...
Dante pulled into the Brass Pole parking lot for his nightly shift. For the last year, he’d worked his ass off to prove to the owner, Bruce, that he could do more than look menacing at the door. He didn’t mind being a bouncer, but he’d rather work steadily with the books. Bruce allowed him to fix the mistakes in the books twice a week, but Dante preferred his time in the office, rather than at the door. The impulse to steal money never quite left him, but there wasn’t the ready cash like at his family’s clubs. Besides, he needed the job and responsibility.
He left his clunker of a car and walked into the club. Bruce stood behind the bar, rather than in his usual spot with the bouncers.
“Bruce.” Dante clocked in. “Where’s Mick? Out again?” The regular bartender wasn’t always reliable unless he was behind the bar.

“He quit. Met a girl in Sutton and left. Something about the great peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,” Bruce said. “I have no idea what the hell that means, but it’s got to be code for something. That man always talks in code about sex.” He rinsed glasses, then left them on the towel.
“Could be.” He’d never heard of sex referred to as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but whatever. “Do you have someone lined up as a replacement?”
“Not yet. I’ve got some guys coming in for interviews tomorrow.” Bruce wiped a tall-boy glass. “I’d have you fill in, but I’m sending you upstairs.”
“You are?” He’d graduated to doing the books those two nights, but hadn’t tended bar in six months.
“The books are fine and can wait another night. I’ll be down here at the bar because you’re not supposed to be this close to booze. No, I’m going to have you serve upstairs. Nothing stronger than soft drinks, so it’s not hard. Besides, I trust you up there. Everyone wants to go up there to watch the action, and I know you’ll actually do the job,” Bruce said.
“Oh, you know it?” He’d do exactly what he was told to do because he needed to prove to himself and everyone else that he could handle the job.
“You’ll give me lip, but you’ll do the job.”

Death before dishonor.
It’s the most important rule and the easiest to break.
Riding with the Knightdale Charter isn't my first choice. 
But home is where you go when you leave your heart in a pine box.
Grief is like a magnet, and I'm surrounded by shadows. 
Living life among the darkness, just like her.  
She's buried an even bigger piece of herself than I have.
And all she wants is to finally find the light.  
If we had any sense at all, we'd steer clear of each other.
But I'd rather feel anything than nothing at all.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust.
When is it love and not just lust? 
Don't ask me. 
I'm a disgrace no matter what.

Book Release Blitz for 1012 Curvy Way by Shaw Hart & Cameron Hart…….

Readers will find themselves drawn to this latest addition to the Cherry Falls Romance series as a stressed-out doctor finds himself distracted by the kind and caring florist determined to bring a bit of joy to his day.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of 1012 Curvy Way by Shaw Hart & Cameron Hart, then add this sweet and sensual small town romance to your bookshelf!

Ken Coleman has a problem.

He’s the town doctor in Cherry Falls, which is normally a pretty fun job, only his nurse just retired and now his easy-going routine is shattered and he’s desperate to find someone to fill the position.

He’s focused on keeping his clinic running smoothly but a certain raven haired beauty is wreaking havoc with his concentration.

Gracie just might be the solution.

Gracie owns the local flower shop and she lives to create the perfect bouquet that can brighten someone’s day. When she notices how stressed-out Dr. Coleman is, she decides to do what she does best and send him flowers.

The two of them grow close but work commitments and Ken’s too high standards might just be too much for them to overcome.

Will she be able to convince him to slow down and smell the roses?


“Oh! Sorry, I didn’t hear you come in,” Gracie apologizes as she straightens from where she was bent over, dusting some shelf.
She looks like a dainty pixie among all of her flowers. She’s curvy and precious, and practically glowing with the sun coming in from the windows. She’s like a modern-day Tinker Bell and my heart does something funny at the sight.
I’m a doctor, and I know my heart didn’t really just skip a beat. But tell that to the organ rioting against my ribcage. Bright blue eyes blink up at me, and for a crazy moment, I have the urge to reach across the counter and plant my lips on hers. Need courses through me at the thought of claiming her, feeling her soft curves, her heat, her skin on my skin as we move together, seeking our end.
I must be more sleep deprived than I thought.
I shake my head, trying to clear those thoughts as I remember why I’m here in the first place.
“Hi, these were delivered to my office by mistake,” I explain. She frowns, the tiny smile that was on her lips slipping.
“Um, actually, these were for you,” she whispers, nibbling on her bottom lip.
“What?” I ask with a little too much shock. Her shoulders stiffen at my sharp tone, and I want to kick myself for being a brute. “I mean, who sent them?”
The prettiest pink blush stains Gracie’s cheeks and she gathers her long black hair up, slinging it over her shoulder and twisting the strands, almost as if she’s nervous. When her gaze meets mine once more, I have to hold in a groan. She looks so sweet, so pure in this moment.
“I did.”

Riggs Stanton is a thief.
He’s also a liar, a jerk, and a playboy jock.

A trick.
Another lie.
And I don’t make mistakes twice.
Now he says he needs me.
One week of my help and I never have to deal with him again. For ten grand, I can suffer anything for seven days.

In 1794, Widowed Countess Eseld Trehearne seeks revenge for the brutal death of her female companion during a Paris riot. On her return to England, Eseld delves into espionage to defeat the French rebels.
Baron Robert Penhale, Eseld’s childhood love, rejoins the Secret Services after his wife’s death. He’s determined to protect England from the revolution terrorizing France.
A ruthless French spy fights for the common man while disguised as an English aristocrat. He’s intent on revenge against those who oppose him.
With the spy stalking them and Robert in fear for Eseld's life, the fate of the couple verges on disaster.


Pierre entered the Blue Anchor tavern. At a table in the far corner, he sat and ordered a small beer. He reached into his greatcoat pocket and pulled out the letter he’d just picked up from the General Post Office. Crackling it open in the dim candlelight, he started to read the coded letter. Men laughed and talked in the low-ceiling taproom, puffing on pipes. The word, “revolution,” popped up now and then. Had their arguments been for or against?
The nerve of the English to care about his country’s events, but the murder of useless royalty across the Channel had made George III fear for his crown. Now Britain, along with Austria, attacked France to demand the status quo.
A pretty wench in an apron and cap sauntered up to his table.
“You promised to visit me. I’m that earnest to run my fingers through your hair blacker than coal, an’ gaze into them blue eyes. Handsome devil.”
“Not now, I’ll come back later tonight. I’m busy.”
Pierre was anxious to finish his note and turned from her. Another chit he dallied with. He heard her walk off in a huff.
He hunched down and snickered.
The note confirmed that a woman, a spoiled aristocrat, was in town to interfere with him.
“How delightful,” he muttered under his breath. Could that be the recent arrival, Countess Trehearne?
He crunched the paper in his fingers as if to rip apart anyone who impeded his operation. This woman, the delectable Eseld, would be easy to fool, and dispose of, if necessary.

One accident.
Two men.
Almost three years of despair. Four beating hearts growing in pain. Five lives forever changed.
Everything fell apart in the blink of an eye.
These days my own misery keeps me company.
I never thought this would be me—a twenty-four-year-old—stuck in a dead-end relationship.
Gone are the thrilling adventures with Harvey Stark.
Gone is his smile.
Gone is the sight of his dimples and the sparkle in his bright blue eyes.
He’s changed into a hollow version of himself and I’m just a shadow following him around our home.
Then I meet my new boss at a firm in Downtown Chicago. Damon Dreygon challenges me in ways I never knew existed and makes me believe in myself again. Our souls match instantly, and meeting Damon feels like a step toward peace.
Except it’s not. Because everyone grieves differently.
While one man refuses to touch me, the other won’t love me. And I’m crawling through the crippling chaos, barely holding on...


My hell. Not everyone has the same definition of hell. Mine is different. My hell exists every day. It’s things I desperately want but can never have.
Harvey’s smile. His attention, his love, his body.
And this. Bikes.
The wind. The sun. The freedom. The speed. The power.
The thought of being so close to death.
There’s nothing more thrilling than being so close to death.
It’s exhilarating.
“Gemma?” I gulp when he traces his fingers over my throat. I can’t tell him to stop because I don’t want him to.
This morning he was ignoring me.
And now he brought me to hell. But I like it here. It’s hell because I’ll get a dose of fun, of high, of happiness. And I won’t ever have the chance to do it again. Because I promised. And even I can’t break a promise more than once.

Book Tour for Whatever Tomorrow Brings by Amy Argent (REVIEW)…….

 After reading the first installment in the Embrace Tomorrow series I find myself now waiting with a tissue box for the conclusion of this emotionally intense tale of two people who find themselves falling in love when death is knocking at the hero's door.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Whatever Tomorrow Brings by Amy Argent, along with my impressions of it, then add this second installment in the Embrace, Tomorrow series to your bookshelf!

“Will you stay? At least for a few minutes? You’re the first visitor I’ve had.”
Intense green eyes, so warm and yet distant. So alone and vulnerable, yet so resilient and strong.
“Can I come back tomorrow?”
So many days spent with him, gaining his trust by giving him my own. Falling in love with him a day at a time. A smile at a time.
“I’m scared, Tori. I feel like I’m falling apart, and there’s nothing left to hold on to.” “Hold on to me, sweetheart.”
Oh God, and then...
“Tori, I want you to go...and I don’t want come back tomorrow.”
And I left.
“Code blue, code blue, room four-twelve.”
And he nearly left this world before I could get back to him. Before he could see the truth of what was between us.
“Jenny, is there any hope for him?”
“Tori, you need to be there for him and help him fight this. Remember that he loves you, and in the end, he chose you.”
He chose me.
Will chose me, and he’s fighting for me. He’s fighting for us. And I’m going to help him fight, with everything I have.

BUY here.


After the rollercoaster ride of emotions found in the first part of this duet, I knew that things were going to be just as intense this time around as the connection between Will and Tori takes an even more dramatic turn.  At the end of the first half of the romance between these two unforgettable characters things were looking bleak as the hero decided to give up with readers seeing him on death's door.  With this book though, Will has decided to fight for a future with Tori, a future that will go through all sorts of twists and turns as his body continues to be ravaged by sickness.

This isn't an easy book to read!  From the heartbreaking realities of what Will goes through with his health to Tori helping fight his battles alongside him, readers will find themselves captivated by every emotion and harsh truth.  From the first page to the last this was a tale that didn't pull any punches in its depiction of sickness and love at an imperfect time.  It's a story that pulls readers into Will and Tori's heartbreaking world, gives readers reasons to cry as well as a few unexpected laughs along the way.  With each turn of the page readers will become even more immersed in this couple's outcome and applauding Ms. Argent on her storyline full of heart and soul!

My rating for this is an A.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Amy Argent is the author of the Embrace Tomorrow Duet: Come Back Tomorrow and its sequel, Whatever Tomorrow Brings. Amy can honestly say she writes day and night—clinical trial documents as a medical writer by day and contemporary romance as a novelist by night...and possibly into the wee hours of the morning. She has a PhD in Genetics that she agonized entirely too much over, but it did result in a fascinating day job—the details of which tend to creep into her fiction.
Amy can be found in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband, two teenagers, and two hedgehogs, where she’s most likely planning her next departure from reality—destination: Dragon Con, the closest Renaissance Faire, or the nearest book.
Amy has always been fascinated by the many ways people cope with the human condition. Her stories explore the emotional journey we take when adversity drastically changes life’s course, but being an eternal optimist, she’s found her niche in soulful stories with silver linings. In truth, they can always be found if one is willing to look for them.
