Nothing less than a Hollywood romance would do . . .
Alice is calm, cool, and aloof—except for the night she meets her new neighbor Dr.
Nicholas Bale—aka Hot Doc. The chemistry between them might be
through the roof but that doesn’t mean she’s going to let him
into her life. Having been seen at her most vulnerable, she vows to
have nothing to do with the sexy doctor. After all, Alice learned
long ago that love only leads to hurt.
Nicholas is smitten
at first sight with the gorgeous, mysterious redhead upstairs. But
between her attempts to push him away and the even bigger wall around
her heart, the dashing doctor is having a hard time getting close to
the sensitive beauty. Then he glimpses the emotion in her eyes as she
watches Fred and Ginger whirl across the screen and he’s determined
to uncover just what it will take to dance his way in to her heart .
. .

LUCKY CHARMED by Sharla Lovelace – Book Tour + #Giveaway

LUCKY CHARMED
by Sharla Lovelace
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 7/18/2017
Charmed, Texas, is as warm and welcoming as it sounds. But even in a small
town, when it comes to love, sometimes you’ve got to take the
bitter with the sweet . . .
Carmen Frost hates honey. And bees. And in her hometown of Charmed, Texas,
which practically invented the stuff, that’s a problem. The good news is
that the summer Honey Festival is finally over. Even better, so is
the annual Lucky Hart carnival, a road show that made off with her
dreams years ago—including the boy she loved. Now she’s got a
divorce behind her, and a successful law career in front of her, but
in a tiny town, big memories die hard. Or they don’t die at all—as
Carmen discovers when she runs into an all too familiar pair of
eyes—older, wiser, and just as heart-melting as ever . . .
Sully Hart has had enough of the nomad lifestyle. Travelling with his father’s
carnival gave him adventures, but it cost him much more. Now he’s
home to stay, contracted to create an entertainment complex in
Charmed. He wants roots, a house with a yard and all the mundane
pleasures that go with it. But the girl he loved has become a woman
who still wants freedom. Can she still want him? It seems he and
Carmen are at each other’s throats one minute—and on each other’s
lips the next. Someone’s gotta give . . .
….

Don’t Let Him Go by Kay Harris – Book Tour + #Giveaway

Don’t Let Him Go
I Want Morrison Book 1
by Kay Harris
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 ***
***
When a strict and careful corporate lawyer collides with a laid-back,
risk-taking activist they find an unexpected, unexplainable, and
possibly, an unemployment-risking kind of love.


Candace Gleason is making all of her dreams come true. She passed the bar,
landed a great job, and is making a killer salary as a corporate
attorney. Everything seems to be working out perfectly. That is until
she’s assigned to keep the boss’s petulant son out of
trouble.
Jack Morrison is the rebellious black sheep of a mighty real estate
family. He runs a non-profit whose mission is to save poor people
from evil corporations, like the one his own family owns. He is
obnoxious, horrible, ridiculously charming, and insanely hot. He is
the bane of Candace’s very existence.
Candace has more to worry about than just keeping Jack from chaining himself
to bulldozers, though. She has to keep him from locking up her heart,
too.
This contemporary romance has a touch of sweet, a little-bit sexy, and a
whole lot of fun. It does not have a cliffhanger and contains a
perfect HEA!
Don’t Let Him Go’ is part of the three-book series ‘I Want Morrison.’
Each book in the series deals with a different Morrison sibling and
each can be read as a stand-alone.

I am a college professor, former park ranger, and anthropologist.
People observation is in my blood. I write contemporary romance
novels that emphasize character development and dialogue.
The situations my characters find themselves in might not be
everyday, but they
could happen.
I have always loved romance novels of all kinds, and I’ve been writing
love stories since I was kid. It wasn’t until I was approaching a
very significant birthday that that I decided to write down some of
those stories in full length novels.
The Love on Tour series is
a coming together of my love of romance and my love of rock n’ roll.
In particular I am a fan of classic rock (which might be obvious if
you read my books). The titles of the books in the series are
actually the song titles from one particular artist. If you can guess
which singer/songwriter it is you get a gold star!
I grew up in Michigan, have since lived all over the west, including
Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, California, and Nevada. I love to
hike, am obsessed with museums, and take my 6’5 husband on
‘adventures’ all over the West.

NOT THROUGH LOVING YOU
by Patricia Preston
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 6/20/17
 ***
***
In the Southern town of Lafayette
Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and
a doctor with everything to prove.
When a sickly infant is surrendered at
the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after,
pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful
divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of
becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns
up. She doesn’t exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete
with Aaron’s cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a
risky alliance with her.
Country singer-songwriter Lia
Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she’s determined her tiny
nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her
stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her
misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and
sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more
unsettling, everything she’s ever hoped for in a man. After all she’s
put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a
song in the good doctor’s heart?
nt- excerpt
**

Lia looked into Aaron Kendall’s irate blue eyes. She hadn’t expected

handsome. She had thought he would be older, bald on

top, definitely glasses, reserved with an adoring chubby wife at his

side. She had pictured them as a sweet couple who were thrilled by

the prospect of having a son and who would give Candace’s unwanted

baby the home he deserved.

How could she have been so wrong?

“All right. Tonight.” She needed time to think through this latest

wrinkle in her life. “I’m staying at the Lansdale Hotel. There’s a

small restaurant in the hotel. We can meet there.”

She glanced at his hand that was still on top of hers. He was the

kind of guy who was available because that’s the way he wanted it.

Why else would he be single? He was attractive. Tall with the lean,

athletic build of a man who was no stranger to physical activity.

The deep crow’s feet on the sides of his eyes revealed that he was

in his mid to late thirties. He had a little scar on the side of his chin.

She wondered how he got it. She wondered why his wife had left

him, and when she met his gaze, she wondered if he realized they

were close enough to kiss.

“I’ll see you at eight.” He released her hand and stepped back.

The tension rolled off him in waves. “It would be good if your sister

joined us as well.”

“Yes, that would be good,” she said before she slipped inside the

Jag. She let down the window. “Unfortunately, Candace is dead.”

She left Aaron Kendall standing speechless in his driveway. Four

days ago, that news had left her speechless, too, when a scruffy girl

named Kelly had shown up on her doorstep with a duffel bag containing

Candace’s belongings as well as a box holding her ashes.

Excerpt:

“I didn’t know
who else to go to. I really need your help.”
Teresa Morales
listened to Dr. Dennis Harrington’s words as she sat curled up on the soft
beige sofa in the lodge at the Taos Falls Mountain Ski Resort. The fire in the
huge granite fireplace in the center of the room was burning hot—almost too hot
for her comfort. Or maybe that was just her anxiety kicking in. This was
supposed to be her vacation. No one was supposed to need her help here.
She bookmarked
the page in the book she had been reading before Dennis’s abrupt arrival and
closed it, setting it aside on the end table. With a swift motion, she
untangled one long leg out from underneath her and brusquely hit her bare feet
to the wide pine floor with a dull thud. If this was his idea of a joke, she
wasn’t laughing.
“Dennis, I’m
just a tourist here. What help could I possibly give you?”
“Last night…”
His voice trailed off. His face looked stricken, and Teresa knew he wasn’t
talking about the New Year’s Eve party they’d both attended—or the dance they’d
shared. No, he was referring to what had happened afterward—the reason behind
the beeper call that had pulled him out of her arms and away from the party
after their dance. The horrible car crash on the bridge just a few hundred
yards from the ski resort had been the only topic of conversation throughout
Taos Falls today.

 

“I’m not sure
you understand how severe the accident that took place last night really was.”

An Admirer With A Secret . . .
**
Mary Higgs could be the poster girl for
the buttoned-up librarian. She follows the rules. Stays ʼtil
closing. Her kindness and dedication to her patrons is legendary. But
those patrons have no idea what she’s typing to the mysterious
shut-in who emailed the library needing a library card three months
ago . . .
When the elusive Miles O’Connor shows
up, he’s no invalid. A year ago, he was the gleaming, ab-sational
star of the small screen. Then came the accident. Now he’s a
wounded recluse with a pizza habit and fears so unshakable that only
the thought of losing Mary to an online date could lure him out of
his cabin.
Soon their email rapport has turned
into weekends on the couch, watching tearjerkers and driving each
other insane with red-hot makeout sessions. But as the desire grows
and their horizons expand, the life that brought them together might
not be enough for either of them . . .

Olivia Dade grew up an undeniable—and
proud—nerd, prone to ignoring the world around her as she read any
book she could find. Her favorite stories, though, were always
romances. As an adult, she earned an M.A. in American history and
worked in a variety of jobs that required her to hide her bawdy
interior under a demure exterior: Colonial Williamsburg interpreter,
high school teacher, academic tutor, and (of course) librarian.
Finally, though, she realized the call of the hussy could no longer
be denied. So now she writes contemporary romantic comedy with plenty
of sex, banter, and nerdery. When not writing, she cooks alongside
her husband, dabbles in photography, and tries to hide her collection
of throbbing-intensive romances from her curious daughter. Visit her
