CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE Magnolia Sound #5 August 10, 2020

Hunter Jones never thought that shared custody would be part of his life, but it’s the only way to make sure his son still has both parents in his life. But when his ex’s increasing unpredictability leads to a missed day care pick up, he’s not so sure shared custody is the best option anymore. Never mind that he’s now the one being accused of bad parenting by a total stranger. Violet Drake has zero patience for poor parenting. There’s nothing that angers her more than seeing parents behave in the same irresponsible way her own parents did throughout her childhood. But after going off on a perfect stranger late to pick up his son, her conscience gets the best of her and she realizes she may have been a little harsh. Violet is only supposed to be in Magnolia Sound for a short time to help out her best friend, so getting involved with a single dad is the absolute last thing she should be doing. Their timing is all kinds of wrong, but sometimes you just can’t help yourself.

Last Beautiful Girl Magnolia Sound #6 September 28, 2020

Kyle Jones loves women. All women. And just because he’s seen all his siblings settle down it doesn’t mean he has any intention of following in their footsteps. After all, he’s happy to keep going through life like it’s one big party and getting tied down to someone would just get in the way of having a good time. Or so he thought until the one woman he could never forget returns to Magnolia Sound. Sydney Albright never thought she would become a mother by losing her sister and brother-in-law. But for the sake of her niece she’ll do whatever it takes, even move into the money pit that is her sister’s home. But the good thing about small towns is there’s always someone ready to help. She just never thought Kyle would be the one to land on her front porch to help with the renovations. Sydney vows she’ll never fall for Kyle again – the past is in the past and that’s right where it should stay. Never mind that she doesn’t even have the time to think about a relationship. But Kyle has other plans. He always said she was the first beautiful girl he loved and now he’s determined to also make her the last.

Winning My Best Friend's Girl by Piper Rayne

Release Date: July 21

Imagine lying in a hospital bed and the doctor who pulls the curtain back to treat you is the one who got away. Even if you never really had her in the first place. She’s not only your high school crush, she’s the ex-girlfriend of your ex-best friend. The one girl you’ve always wanted.

Here’s a step-by-step list to finally win her over…
Key to win #1:  Try not to take offense that she snuck back into town without telling you—six months ago.
Key to win #2: Rekindle the friendship to ease the awkwardness. But… DO NOT enter the friend zone.
Key to win #3: Ignore the fact that she went speed dating the night before. Take it as good a sign—maybe she’s looking for a relationship.
Key to win #4: Attempt to keep the two of you out of the town gossip blog and away from your large family.

Make sure you don’t let this last one throw you off your mission. 

Key to win #5: Don’t get deterred when you find out the past is about to repeat itself. Because the man she met at the speed dating night is your best buddy from work.

Just remember, you sat back and let her slip away once, you won’t do it a second time. 

Failure is not an option.

Blurb

Dragons, bonded mates, and irreversible decisions.

After a car accident left my only parent – my father in the hospital, I was swept away to the Dragon Born Academy by my estranged grandmother. 

If I had to be there, I’d be an observer of this place with its rituals and superstitions… After all, everyone’s made it clear I don’t belong.

But then it happened…and Ashe Carrick – my impossibly irresistible bond-mate happened.

Being Cracked Open changed everything… Who I thought I was, WHAT I thought I was…

DRAGON BORN.

The words alone bring to mind monsters and princesses in castles.

I am the princess and the monster they locked away. However, my story has no damsels in distress, waiting to be rescued.

It’s self-rescue time, and I’m done playing nice.

Excerpt

(This excerpt is from an advance uncorrected proof - Copyright © 2020 T.L. Christianson)

Something moved along my skin and I pulled off my ritual garment. Wrapped around my left upper arm was the dark spiked tail of my dragon. 
My dragon.
The tattoo shimmered as she moved, the sensation like that of silk sliding along my skin.
Aaraeth? I asked.
I am here… came her reply in my head. 
She was separate but part of me at the same time.
Ashe cleared his throat but didn’t look away from my naked body. Logical thought told me that I should cover myself or turn away, but after the mental bond that we’d shared before – the gesture felt wrong. Ashe was connected to me now, I felt it deep within my bones.
Closing the space between us, he reached out and touched my skin where my dragon, Aareath moved across my body.

Asher by Carian Cole




Title: Asher
Series: Ashes & Embers #6
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 3, 2020



Blurb

I should have died.

I should have been forgotten.

But I didn’t, and I wasn’t.

Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way, since we first met as teens. We were blessed with a beautiful daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up the charts.

Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.

Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a big black void where my memories should be.

Used to be.

And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.

I’m told that’s me.

But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once had, leaving me in her place.

A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.

I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly love me? Or will he forever be in love with her, the phantom woman who haunts us both?

TANK by Daphne Loveling

Title: TANK
Series: Lords of Carnage MC
Author: Daphne Loveling
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 1, 2020
𝙎𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙖 𝙛𝙧𝙚𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙣.
One moment, my only priorities are my bike, my club, and my freedom.
The next, my ex dumps a little girl off on my doorstep with a note saying she’s mine.
Then, everything goes to hell in the MC, when an unknown element blows up a rival club and starts coming for us.
That’s when fate plants a fiery, brown-eyed beauty smack in the middle of the whole mess.
She’s got a body that just won’t quit
And a mouth that makes me want to argue with her almost as much as I want to kiss her.
She sees right through me.
And it’s pretty damn clear she doesn’t like what she sees.
But I can tell by the heat in her eyes
And what it does to me to watch her hips shimmy as she storms away from me...
Ain’t no way one night will be enough to quench a flame this hot.
I’m a small-town girl from the Midwest who moved to the big city as a young adult in search of adventure. Since that fateful day when I took a deep breath and took a chance, I’ve traveled and lived all over the world, though I gravitate toward hot climates. Someday, I hope to retire to a sandy beach and continue my writing with sand between my toes.
These days, I live in the Great Lakes region with my hot-as-hell husband and our two adorable cats. When I’m not writing, I’m reading. My tastes in books definitely run the gamut. I am a sucker for a bad boy romance, though. Aren’t we all?
Thank you so much for reading my work, and for supporting independent authors!
I love to hear from readers, and always appreciate your feedback.
