New Release! Blind Date Bet by Nicole Flockton

Never say never…

After loving and losing a soldier once, Isabella Knowles made a vow: No more military men. She’s rebuilt her life and has a classroom full of fifth graders to love, which is more than enough even though her father doesn’t agree. When he sets her up on a blind date, she only goes to humor him — never dreaming that the man she meets will tempt her to break her one rule.

In theory, Ethan Masters is not opposed to the wife, kids and house with a white picket fence. But he loves his career as a K-9 handler in the air force, and a dream promotion dangles before him like dog tags. While contemplating his future, he accepts a drunken bet for a blind date, never dreaming that the captivating woman fits perfectly into his ideal, all-American dream. Only one problem. She’s gun-shy about all things military.

Can Ethan prove to Isabella love is worth the risk?

If you're planning on falling in love you'd better be sure someone is there to catch you...

When it comes to the confident, charismatic Caleb Parker, Sadie Lane feels the spark - the kind that comes from rubbing each other the wrong way. She's yoga pants, he's a suit. She's a tattoo artist, he's a straight-laced mogul. But after they accidentally co-rescue an abandoned dog from a storm, Sadie sees a vulnerable side to the seemingly invincible hottie.

Caleb doesn't do emotions. Growing up the underdog, he's learned the hard way to build up an impenetrable wall. Perfect for business. Disastrous for relationships. He's never worried about it before - not until he finally gets behind Sadie's armor and begins to fall.

Both guarded and vulnerable, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Or are they? Shocked at their undeniable connection, can they ever admit to wanting more? That all depends on what they're each willing to risk...

My Thoughts On The Book

Playing For Keeps by author Jill Shalvis features the character’s of Sadie and Caleb, and is the seventh book in the Heartbreaker Bay series. Sadie and Caleb are undeniably attention worthy from the start. Both character’s are full of heart and humour and their chemistry is off the charts. Little Lollipop is an undeniable draw-card presence in the story that is an all-round unmissable read, and a fabulous addition to the series.

Protecting My Heart by Melanie Shawn (Book One)

Welcome to Valentine Bay!

Ella Fletcher spent all of high school in love with the boy next door–her best friend, Donovan. It was never more than that, but she fooled herself into believing friendship was enough.

Donovan Valentine knew he could never make a move on his best friend Ella. After all, she depended on him. He was the only stable man in her life. If denying his feelings was the price he had to pay for protecting hers, then he was more than willing to pay it.

Celebrating their high school graduation, they drunkenly took part in a marriage ceremony using fake IDs. But now, fifteen years later, it turns out that the IDs weren’t so fake, and neither is the marriage.

When Donovan returns to Valentine Bay to straighten things out, will this accident turn into the best thing that ever happened to them?

But when he tells her he’s moving home to Valentine Bay, she just may have to rethink everything between them. Can she dig down under her sassy, sarcastic shell and find true vulnerability inside?

For Gavin Valentine, life has taken a turn. Diagnosed with a medical condition that means he’ll never be cleared to fly again, he loses everything that matters to him, pretty much overnight. The future he’d always seen for himself is gone in a blink.

Can the lone wolf pilot open up enough to let love in, and learn that sometimes the future you never pictured is the one you were meant to have?

About the Book

Two women, two great betrayals, one path to redemption. A punchy, powerful and page-turning novel about the redemptive power of great literature, from industry insider, John Purcell.

Amy Winston is a hard-drinking, bed-hopping, hot-shot young book editor on a downward spiral. Having made her name and fortune by turning an average thriller writer into a Lee Child, Amy is given the unenviable task of steering literary great Helen Owen back to publication.

When Amy knocks on the door of their beautiful townhouse in north west London, Helen and her husband, the novelist Malcolm Taylor, are conducting a silent war of attrition. The townhouse was paid for with the enormous seven figure advance Helen was given for the novel she wrote to end fifty years of making ends meets on critical acclaim alone. The novel Malcolm thinks unworthy of her. The novel Helen has yet to deliver. The novel Amy has come to collect.

Amy has never faced a challenge like this one. Helen and Malcolm are brilliant, complicated writers who unsettle Amy into asking questions of herself - questions about what she values, her principles, whether she has integrity, whether she is authentic. Before she knows it, answering these questions becomes a matter of life or death.

My Thoughts On The Novel

What a read! Amy was such a tumultuous character. Mr. Purcell creates character's you are enchanted with one moment and shocked by the next. A top pick in reading with shocks and drama aplenty.
