Join the Hunt
(See Details Below)

Playing naughty or nice . . .

Fiona Wilder knows all about falling in lust. Love? That's another story. Determined not to repeat past mistakes, the single mom and cupcake shop owner is focused on walking the straight and narrow. But trouble has a way of finding her. And this time it comes in the form of a smoking hot firefighter who knows all the delicious ways to ignite her bad-girl fuse. Can lead to heartbreak . . .

Firefighter Mike Halsey learned long ago that playing with fire just gets you burned. He's put his demons behind him, and if there's one line he won't cross, it's getting involved with his best friend's ex. But when fate throws him in the path of the beautiful, strong, and off-limits Fiona, will he be able to fight their attraction? Or will he willingly go down in flames? Or a sweet surprise!

For all of you who have yet to read a Sweet, Texas Romance by Candis Terry...well...where have you been?  No really...I am talking Smokin Hot TEXAN Brothers here ladies!!  But in SWEET SURPRISE we get a hero who is still smokin hot...just not one of the Wilder Brothers, but the guy who wants to ravage the "Sweet looking, delicate" Fiona Wilder, ex-wife of Jackson (SWEETEST MISTAKE)...Little does this Smokin Hot Fireman know...Fiona Wilder is no delicate flower (well...at least she isn't when Bad Fiona comes out to play!)

SWEET SURPRISE was everything that I love in a romance, it had humor, it had sexual tension, it had romance and that "Falling in love" butterfly feeling...and it had FIREMAN MIKE HALSEY (Forget putting out the fire...Mike Halsey be heating the ladies up...Cold Shower warning!)  

One of the best parts of the Sweet, Texas Series is that we get our favorite characters from the past releases in each story, which always enhances the element of FUN!  Especially when Charli and Abby get going...they crack me up!  And my little Izzy...have loved her since she played dress-up with her daddy in SWEETEST MISTAKE...I love that Fiona and Jackson are both wonderful parents and have continued to be the best of friends even after their divorce. I have been waiting for Fiona to finally get her some...and boy does she pick the right man!

Fireman Mike...I LOVE him...I love the way he cares for his family, and even though he is so far away, he still is the "Man" of the family and takes care them.  And his relationship with his Avo (Grandmother)....I cried...Yeah I did...and You will too..be WARNED!!  SWEET SURPRISE isn't easy on the heart...there is some breaking...and mending...and some Sweet Surprises...but all in all...it is a WONDERFUL addition to the series, and I hope that Candis Terry continues to write romance that steal your heart and comfort your soul!!

Paperback Copy of FIRE ME UP

Fire Me Up
Pine Mountain # 4 
Kimberly Kincaid 
Releasing Jan 27th, 2015
Zebra/ Kensington


Teagan O’Malley can handle a crisis. She’s a paramedic, it’s her job. But she never expected to land in the kitchen of her father’s pub, with no notice, no cash, and no room for error. The kitchen is not her favorite place. Lucky for her, she just scraped a bad-boy chef off the pavement after a motorcycle accident—and something about him says he can turn up the heat in more ways than one.

Adrian Holt has had a rough few years, and he’s not eager to get tangled up in anything more complicated than a good risotto. But with a broken arm and a head full of bad memories, he needs a challenge to keep him sane. Teagan’s dare-me attitude and smoldering mess of a bar are just what the doctor ordered. And the two of them together might cook up some even better medicine…

Amazon | Barnes | iTunes | Kobo


Another fantastic addition to the Pine Mountain Series by Kimberly Kincaid.  I love me some grizzly bear motorcycle ridin' tattooed yumminess and that is Adrian.  And the chemistry between him and Teagan is explosive from the first meeting...Oil and Vinegar...but quite delicious when you mix together!

Adrian can't relax while on a forced leave of absence, and Teagan is trying to keep her father's pub afloat, while just finding out how things have fallen apart worse than she thought.  Adrian play a little "White-Knight" and the sexy-foreplay kitchen games commence...and if anyone can write a sexy as all get out scene in the kitchen....its Kimberly Kincaid!

We get to see old friends from the past three Pine Mountain stories, and it's always fun to get a chance to see what is new with characters we have grown to love!  And we get some new characters, like Brennan...who I think could have a romance in the future???  Maybe? Say yes!

Always fun...Always Sexy...Kimberly Kincaid Never Disappoints with a romance that will keep you up late into the night!!  And a Hero who has you dreaming of sizzling pans and smoldering kisses!!

Released January 20th, 2015
Avon Romance

Bee Carter has been offered everything she has ever dreamed of—a caring, lasting relationship with a handsome, often charming billionaire; the permanent home she's never had but has always craved; and wealth to buy the designer fashions she loves, support her hard-working mother, and ensure her acceptance by Chicago's elite.

To obtain what she's desired for so long, she has to do only two things: Walk away from her best friend, a woman who is destined to betray her … and end her passionate nightly encounters with a certain tattooed biker, a former Marine who can never give her what she needs.

Her answer should be clear, but the heart has a way of complicating even the most straightforward decisions.

What Would You Give Up For Your Dreams? 
by Cynthia Sax

I truly believe that almost every dream is possible. If I wanted to become a unicorn, I could find some crazy plastic surgeons and other medical folks who could make this dream a reality. (Yes, I think about these things – I AM a writer! Grins)

The main reason a dream doesn’t become reality is because the price is too high. It might take a million dollars or more worth of surgery to turn me into a rainbow maned, one horned, four hoofed equine. It would also be extremely painful. I don’t want to become a unicorn enough to trade my health and the money I don’t yet have.

I have happily paid the (much lower) price for other dreams. When I switched from business to writing full time, I gave up income (my dear wonderful hubby has graciously agreed to bankroll this decision, paying our bills until I’m successful) and time (every spare moment is spent writing or engaging in writing related activities – I spent Christmas Day completing revisions for Sinful Rewards 12). For me, this trade off is well worth it. For you, it might not be.

In Sinful Rewards 7, my sizzling hot contemporary erotic romance serial, Bee, our heroine, is offered everything she has ever wanted—marriage to a wonderful handsome man, a home, help with her mom, all of the wonderful fashions she adores, financial stability and a place in Chicago society.

But there’s a price. One requirement is that she walks away from her best friend, Cyndi, that she no longer associates with the bubbly, man crazy, party girl. This is an extremely severe sacrifice for our loyal heroine to make for her dream.

To add complexity to this decision, Bee suspects her relationship with Cyndi might be doomed anyway. It might not survive her newly acquired reputation. Cyndi’s image-conscious father could force the two women to part ways.

If Bee says yes to the offer, she’ll give up her best friend. If she says no to the offer, there’s a possibility that her best friend might reject her. Bee could be left with nothing, forgo her dream yet pay the dream’s price.

What would you do? Would you walk away from your best friend to realize your dream? Have you turned any of your dreams into reality?

New Release: FAT LOUISE by Jamie Begley (Biker Bitches #2) #Giveaway #Review @Jamie_Begley #BikerBitches

The Last Riders (Bks 1-3) and Sex Piston (Biker Bitches #1)

Fat Louise
Biker Bitches # 2

Released Jan 23rd, 2015

Young Ink Press

She needed a hero; instead, she got Cade.

Cade was no hero. He was a nomad, a wanderer with no ties and he liked it that way. Hired out to save Fat Louise and her spoiled sister from a cartel run Mexican city was a risk he was willing to take, for the right price. With a certain gray eyed woman on his mind, he sets out to find her, fuck her and forget her. No harm, no foul. But it's all easier said than done when it comes to this plain Jane.

He expected a biker bitch who knew the rules; instead, he got Fat Louise.

Fat Louise wasn’t about to put her crew in danger. She had to learn to handle problems on her own, even if they included a six-foot biker she was forced to rely on, if she was going to rescue her sister. She never expected to see Cade again after she'd left Mexico, but all it takes is one night with him to prove that even a bitch’s heart can be broken.

Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iTunes

So, I am just going to put it all out there and say...Fat Louise broke my heart...yep...I cried, and I know that you will be just as touched as I was once you get into FAT LOUISE, the second in the Biker Bitches Series by Jamie Begley.  I think the only other JB romance I cried during was KNOX'S STAND, but that's cause I was super emotionally involved with Knox and Diamonds story...and Knox is a friggin marshmallow.....(#TeamKnox), sorry, back to Fat Louise (Jane) and Sexy Mr. Cade....love him, hate him...it's all the same to him!

I think Jamie really shakes things up with the Biker Bitches novellas.  She takes these tough biker chicks, and she totally turns the tables on our assumptions on these ladies.  I mean, SEX PISTON a Virgin...WHAT?!  And now Fat Louise heading into a cartel run, mexican city to save her spoiled bitch of a sister....You Go Fat Louise!!  (and I have to say, I LOVE that her name is Jane).

Cade had NO idea what he was getting himself into when he took the job to extract the girls, and after he is done with the job, he finds himself being drawn to Jane, and he takes matters into his own hands. What happens isn't an easy HEA, it's heartbreak, stupid pride and some very yummy make up sex...hee hee

Begley rocks the bicthes!!  Keep em coming girl!  I need me some Train and Killyama next!

"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Enter to Win
Lovett Texas Print Bundle

In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson's newest novella, Vince Haven and Sadie Hollowell are headed to the altar, and all their friends are headed to Lovett, Texas, to join them for the party of the year.

But Becca Ramsey doesn't have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca's all business … and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.

In the past, Nate was trouble. He's been trying to repair his reputation—heck, he's even got just one girlfriend. The problem is, she isn't Becca. Now Nate's in a whole lot of hot water. He needs to get Becca from "I won't" to "I do" … but how can he do that when she won't even say "I might"?

Short, Sweet and...a chance to catch up with old friends!  That's what you will get with I DO!, the new novella from Rachel Gibson in the Lovett Texas series.  The novella was a recap of the past couple from the Lovett, Texas series (Vince, Blake, Beau, the Parrish's) and a super short romance between Becca, who we have met in RESCUE ME, and Nathan Parrish, yep...teenage Nathan is all grown up and just as sexy as his daddy!

I loved that I got to catch up with the past couples, which could have been the whole novella, but there was the short romance which was a bit too short for me.  I really was excited about Nathan having a story, and just wanted more!!  

Definitely worth the read it you are a true, die-hard Gibson fan, as I am!  Newbies, might want to start at the beginning...so make sure to enter the giveaway!!

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
