Liam Callaghan is happy with the way things are.

She and her daughter become his focus. His world.

He only has to convince her to believe in them.

Liam entered Paige’s life quietly, but from the moment he took her hand, her world exploded.

If Liam has anything to do with it, they will.

Do you need a heart warming, feel good read?
Then Loved by Liam is the book you are looking for! Featured as secondary characters in Finding Ronan’s Heart, both Liam and Paige demanded their own story be told.

Liam is a classic Moreland hero, molded much like the BAM boys before him. I dare you to not like him! Paige is someone I'd be proud to call a friend. Both are characters that I wanted to embrace and spend more time with, so I am so glad they got their own book. 

Add in the great secondary cast and this is a book that was a pure joy to spend time with and I sad to see it end. 

If you are reading the books out of order, their are spoilers for Finding Ronan’s Heart, so I would encourage the reader to go in order. I am definitely looking forward to seeing what comes next for the BAM/ABC family.

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She's learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

For Love or Honey ~ Staci Hart ~ Cover Reveal

Look at this cute cover! For Love or Honey is a brand new enemies to lovers rom-com from Staci Hart! I cannot WAIT to read this one! Pre-order your copy today.

Amazon | AppleBooks | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads

When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

Which is exactly what I did when Grant Stone rolled into our small Texas town, driving a sports car I could fit in the bed of my truck, wearing a suit as black as his soul. He’s here to acquire mineral rights to half a dozen farms in town.

And there’s no way he’s getting mine.

I don’t make deals with the devil.

So when he challenges me to show him the small town ropes, my motivation is the prospect of seeing him make a fool of himself. He might have an angle, but if he thinks he can finagle me into endangering my bee farm, he’s got another thing coming.

Until the line in the sand is washed away.

My farm in danger. A town in upheaval. A man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

And me in the middle.

When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

And when he sneaks into your heart, he’ll only break it.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Review Round Up ~ July 27

New Release:

Good Twin Gone Country (Dynasties: Beaumont Bay #4)Good Twin Gone Country by Jessica Lemmon

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy PRovided by Author

This is a series that I discovered halfway through and am wishing I had read the first 2 books as well!
Hallie is the twin sister/manager of a famous country singer. Gavin is the youngest brother of Hallie’s now brother in law. Both are previous secondary characters getting their turn in the spot light.

Hallie and Gavin’s story is fun and follows what I would have expected from the “good girl” and the “bad boy” coming together so she can “break the rules.”

Both characters came into the story fairly well adjusted, but set in their ways. It was entertaining to see how they evolved with their time together. The secondary cast centers around Gavin’s brothers and their significant others and they were great foils for pointing out the obvious (at least to Gavin). If you have followed the series, you will appreciate seeing what everyone is up to now!

This is a book that I waffled on a bit, both when it came time to decide what to read and even in the early part of the book.

Tessa (our female lead) took me a bit to get connected with, but the more I got to know her, the more I liked her and found myself rooting for her.
Guy (our male lead) was not your classic aristocratic character. I found him refreshing, even as he was repeatedly putting his foot in his mouth.

With a unique story line, there were several twists and turns in When a Duke Loves a Governess. I appreciated the way Ms Drake had Tessa stick to her guns regarding what she wanted. Add in interesting secondary characters along with a level of intrigue and this is a very enjoyable historical read.

The Sinner ~ Emma Scott ~ Cover Reveal

Emma Scott has revealed the cover for The Sinner!

Releasing: August 15, 2021

Cover Design: Lori Jackson Designs

Shy, introverted Lucy Dennings lives a quiet little life in New York City, working for a nonprofit and keeping to herself. Every afternoon, she goes home to her empty apartment and Edgar, her houseplant, and every night, she loses herself in the pages of her beloved romance novels. Her lonely heart seeks solace in tales of passionate, enduring, all-consuming love, but more and more, Lucy feels she's not just reading for pleasure but searching for her a lost piece of herself in the pages. As if she once touched something beautiful but it's been ripped away.

Until one day Lucy discovers a dead body in the alley behind her apartment. Even if it's too late, her first instinct is to help.

Her second is to run.

Because the dead body isn't so very dead, and suddenly, her little world isn't so little but one in which dreams feel like memories, "inner demons" actually lurk in dark alleys, and a beautiful creature of darkness with amber eyes and wings like night might hold the key to what her heart has been aching for...if she doesn't fall down the path of eternal damnation first.

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Emma Scott, comes an emotional paranormal love story of passion, sacrifice, and the soul-deep love of a lifetime...more than one.

Book Blurb:

Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional? I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle. But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone. My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy. Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

I am so glad to be back with the Arizona Vengeance!
In this installment, we get to spend time with right winger Jett and Emory (a new employee in charge of the team’s social media)

Ms Bennett did an excellent job of crafting this friends to lovers story. It was so sweet to see Jett and Emory (along with her daughter and sister) slip into this budding relationship that semi surprised both of them as it went along.

This is a book that also did some heavy lifting in terms of Vengeance world building. Select secondary characters made larger appearance in preparation for them to have books soon (hopefully). It speaks to the author’s attention to detail that this world building felt organic to the story and didn’t detract from the Jett/Emory storyline.

I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see what happens next for this team!
