New Release! Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis

Run for the hills temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.

Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful – OK, crazy hot – chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself…just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she gets Spence immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?

Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.

29 August 2017
eBook, Paperback

Ana has trained most of her life to achieve one goal: to prove that anything men can do, she can do better. Now she’s Sector One’s first female Rider, and being the best is the only way to ensure she won’t be its last. Distractions aren’t allowed--especially not her painful attraction to the reserved but demanding leader whose stern, grumpy demeanor has already gotten into her head.

Deacon has spent the last twenty years trying to atone for his past, but the blood he spilled as a mercenary and assassin will never wash away entirely. If his riders knew the extent of his sins, he’d lose their trust and respect. It’s easier to keep them all at arm’s length, especially Ana. But his newest recruit’s stubbornness is starting to crack his defenses.

And their sparring matches are driving him wild.

The passion sparking between them can’t be denied, but neither can the vengeance barreling toward Deacon. When his old squad comes back to punish him for his betrayal, Ana and the Riders are squarely in the line of fire. The only way to save his people may be to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But first, he has to convince Ana not to follow him straight into hell.

Thoughts On The Book

Ana and Deacon were undeniably attention grabbing in their interactions. Their characters individually were stand-outs. There were a few potential character story twists wrapped in Ana and Deacon's story that were interesting. Gideon's Rider's series is a book series to look out for. Deacon is the second book in the Gideon's Rider's series.

New Release! Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy by Cathryn Hein

No girl forgets her first crush. The least he could do is remember it.

Chrissy James has only been home in small-town Levenham a few weeks when her teenage crush plays hero and saves her from an aggressive drunk. Seven years ago, Nick Burroughs was the school hottie while she was the overweight girl with braces, bad hair, and an unrequited obsession with the sports star every girl in school wanted. Her failed efforts to attract Nick’s attention still burn.

Chrissy sure has his attention now, but she’s older, smarter and focused on settling into her new dream job as wine marketer. No matter how sexy he’s grown, or how keen his interest, Nick will need to do a lot more than see off a drunk if he wants to win her over.

But Chrissy doesn’t count on the determination of a Burroughs boy in love. Nick will do anything to recapture Chrissy’s heart, even if it means acting the romantic fool and embarrassing himself in the process.

Will Nick’s efforts to make amends for the past backfire or will Chrissy’s career thwart everything? Grab this cute small-town romance and find out!

The Levenham Love Story Series



Excerpt – Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy by Cathryn Hein

He turned back and took proper stock of her. Her blue eyes were wide and her lips were pressed together, and she was rubbing one arm as though cold, but overall she looked fine enough.
‘Feeling okay?’ he asked. ‘Want me to call anyone?’
‘No need, I’m good. Thanks.’ Then she smiled, and the impact of it was like a cow kick to the chest, stealing Nick of breath and scrambling his brain. This girl wasn’t just pretty, she was gorgeous.
He grinned back dopily until her fading smile made him realise he was acting like a village idiot. No surprise. Right now, he felt like one.
‘So, ah …’ He pointed vaguely towards the line of cars. ‘I’ll walk you?’
Nick followed as she stepped out, casting an appreciative gaze over her bum as he probed his soupy brain for who she could be. She wasn’t the kind of girl he’d forget in a hurry, yet he was stuffed if he could place her. It was clear she knew him though.
‘How did you know my name?’
‘Everyone knows the Burroughs boys.’
Nick blinked. This was news. Sure, he’d had his photo in the paper a few times for footy, but that didn’t mean anything.
‘They do?’
‘Of course.’
‘Huh. How ’bout that.’
Suddenly the girl whirled around, causing Nick, who’d been admiring her bum again, to almost crash into her. ‘You haven’t got a clue who I am, have you?’
He took in her stance: weight on one hip, arms crossed, chin slightly jutted. Trouble. Except the curve of her lips suggested more amusement than anger.
‘I feel like I should, but …’ Nick gave a lopsided smile. ‘Sorry.’
For a long moment she stared at him, then she huffed out a breath and threw her hands in the air. ‘What a waste.’
‘A waste?’
‘Yeah. A big, fat, gigantic waste.’
Nick gave the back of his neck a scratch. ‘Not sure I follow.’
‘No, you wouldn’t.’
He eyed her warily, the feeling that he’d done something horribly wrong creeping up his belly, which was unfair. He’d saved her from Leppo, done the hero thing. Girls were meant to go for that.
Weren’t they?

New Release! Desert Devil by Jenny Schwartz


His dark gaze finally moved from her face to the pendant lying on the table in front of him. He turned it over thoughtfully.
“It’s a plain crystal,” she said. “It’s not a beacon or anything. It’ll keep you safe.”
“If I wear it.” He straightened the silver chain that held it.
“If you wear it, I’ll leave. No questions asked. I’ll forget you’re here.”
The corners of his mouth indented at that promise, either from irony at knowing how impossible her promise was to fulfil or because somewhere hidden in him he also felt the wrongness of there being no ties between them.
Or did he hear the pain in her voice?
He looked up abruptly. “Okay.” He lifted his hat, looped the chain over his neck, and tucked the black tourmaline crystal beneath his shirt. He stood, placing money on the table. “Don’t come back.”


About Desert Devil by Jenny Schwartz

Donna Keats is a seer. But when she defies fate to save her estranged foster brother she becomes fate’s victim.

As one of only three couriers alive, Forrest “Rest” Castillo can travel anywhere on Earth in seconds. However, the price of his rare talent is to be forever alone. Anyone who gets close to him becomes a potential hostage for the powerful people that seek to own him.

Two years ago, Rest retreated to the isolated beauty of the Arizona desert to save those who have his loyalty and love, but it was the wrong strategy. It’s not his life that should be sacrificed for peace. Nor will it be Donna’s.

Rest’s enemies are about to learn that this former Army Ranger is not as alone as they believed, and that no conspiracy can be buried forever.

The time has come for Rest to walk the Path for justice, and Donna will match him step for step.
