New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde invites you back to Cupid, Texas, where love is only a heartbeat away . . .

Sexy cowboy-scholar Jericho Chance always knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. And after sauntering back home to Cupid, he’s shocked to discover that he wants Zoe McCleary. After years from home, he takes one new look at his bubbly best friend, with her lightning smarts and luscious body, and it hits him like a bolt: she’s his somebody to love and he’s not leaving town again without her.

Settling down always seemed like a time waster to Zoe, a man magnet with a trail of broken hearts behind her. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive as Jericho? There’s no way they can ignore the explosive chemistry seething between them . . . even if it means risking their friendship...
Is it only me...or does the Cupide Texas Series just keep getting better and better!?
Firstly, can we just say...Hellloooooo Jericho!!  As a huge fan of "Friends to Lovers" romances, and a HUGE fan of Lori Wilde romances (after the Jubilee Texas Series, which I am currently re-reading my love Joe Daniels in THE COWBOY TAKES A BRIDE), I absolutely enjoyed every moment of SOMEBODY TO LOVE, book three in the Cupid, Texas Series. 
The suspense aspect was a fun addition to the story and certainly keeps you hanging on, page after page, and your heart will take a few hits with this one, but in the end, I can say that Lori will leave you with the warm and fuzzies...Satisfaction Guaranteed. 
Grab some cocoa, and a warm blanket and settle in for a heartwarming read which will keep you up into the night.
No one knows Cowboys like Lori Wilde!!

Book Two in the Moments in Time Series
A deadly accident can take a life in more than one way.
Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.
As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.  
Then she gets a second chance.
When Carlene meets Nick, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again? And if she does, what will that mean for her?
A thing of fate.
Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.
Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.
** Due to sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. **

SEX PISTON by Jamie Begley (Biker Bitches #1), Signed Paperback Giveaway

Sex Piston
Biker Bitches #1
Jamie Begley
Released Dec 24th, 2013
Purchased by Reviewer
Reviewed by Lisa

Begley knows her Bitches!  Fun Start to a New Series by Begley, but I must say, Sex Piston was more than expected!

Sex Piston wasn’t about to apologize to anyone for her bitch attitude and certainly not the President of The Blue Horsemen, Stud. If he thinks he’s going to be able to control her and her crew then he has another thing coming. A lapse in judgment has him thinking that he’s won this battle of the sexes but a one-night stand isn’t about to bring this woman to heel.

Stud has to prove himself as the new President of the Destructors, and Sex Piston and her crew’s attitude isn’t helping. If he has to sacrifice his body to tame the bitch then that’s exactly what he’s going to do even if it means losing his heart in the battle.

SEX PISTON, the first book in the Biker Bitches Series by Jamie Begley, was a fun and sexy start to what is going to be a great addition to The Last Riders Series, which if you haven't read yet, well...ya need to to do!  (Razer, Viper and Knox are three bad-ass, sexy and a whole lotta bad biker).

Sex Piston (Norma) and Stud, the New President of the Destructors MC, have butted heads since the first night that he took over as president.  This no-nonsense biker chick isn't letting another man get the better of her but her caring heart and three beautiful little girls might just be the few things that could change her mind.

If you have met Sex Piston in The Last Riders Series, you know she says what she wants and isn't afraid of anything, well, accept maybe getting her heart broken again, which is why she is so tough on the outside.  I totally loved getting to know Sex Piston and the rest of her crew, a well as, getting a different take on a few storyline you might have already read in The Last Riders Series.  The storyline was so different from what I thought, but still so so good!  I ate it up in an afternoon!!

If you are a fan of MC Romance, you definitely want to grab this one for your collection and at ONLY $1.50....You cant go wrong!!

About Jamie

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 put up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent at work and I write during the nights and weekends. I have two children who both graduate next year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

When friends become lovers . . .

Firefighter and former Marine Jackson Wilder has tough guy down to an art, but he’s learned the hard way that promises were made to be broken. Abigail Morgan was once his best friend, his first kiss, his first love, his first everything. He’d just forgotten to mention all that to her and she blew out of his life. Five years later, she’s back and he’s battling a load of mistrust for her disappearing act. But for some reason he just can’t keep his lips—or his hands—to himself.

It can lead to disaster or . . .

When her stint as a trophy wife abruptly ends, Abby returns home to Sweet, Texas, and comes face-to-face with Jackson—her biggest and sexiest mistake. Time and distance did nothing to squash her love for the act-first-think-later stubborn hunk of a man, and when he suggests they renew their old just-friends vow, Abby realizes she wants more. She’d cut and run once. Could she do it again? Or could she tempt him enough to break his promise?
Hero Profile
 (Imagine provided by Candis)

Name: Jackson Jeremiah Wilder
Age: 31
Occupation: Former Marine/Firefighter
Physical Description:
A towering 6 ft. 3 in. act-first-think-later kind of guy with carelessly hand-combed dark blond hair, vivid blue eyes that make him look keenly intrigued, full of mischief, and wildly untamed, and a squared jaw dusted with a five o’clock shadow. Firefighter turnouts can’t hide his mouthwatering body with an impressive breadth of shoulders and chest, defined biceps, slim hips, and long, powerful legs.
Protecting those he loves, even at his own peril. And the magic of a well-built tree house!
That he is quick-tempered and can never keep his big mouth shut.
Relationship Status:
Totally taken!
Typical Friday Night:
Hanging out with his family. Watching a Disney princess movie with his little girl. Sweet talking Abby Morgan out of her Victoria’s Secrets.
Drink of Choice:
Shiner Bock Ale
Favorite Food:
His mom’s barbecued brisket or any burger off the menu from Bud’s Nothing Finer Diner.
Favorite Song:
Do I? by Luke Bryan
Choice of Transportation:
Silver Chevy Silverado. Not Ranger, the most stubborn horse in the world!
Boxers or Briefs:
Best Memory to Date:
He said he honestly can’t choose between kissing Abby for the first time or holding his baby girl in his arms for the first time. Both were life-changing.
Words to live by:
Failure is a learning tool.

Yes...you can be super jealous that I got a piece of Jackson and you have to wait for him to show up in your stocking after Christmas.

OMG...I didn't think the Wilder Brother's could get even HOTTER or MORE STUBBORN than Reno, but I was WRONG! Jackson is a whole lotta yummy in a tall, handsome package that I wanted to unwrap...no dirty minds, I meant unwrap his MIND!! He sure was a stubborn man that had me wanting to give him a good, stern talking to...but Abby, one of the coolest heroines (along with Charli) had his number and she knew how to work him....There are some HYSTERICAL Scenes!
Like laugh-out-loud funny, where the people next to you are lookin at you kind funny!

Just wait until Jesse joins the fun and tries to stir the pot.

I could say so, so much more to say about THE SWEETEST MISTAKE, but for now I will say I laughed, I cried, I FELL IN LOVE. Candis Terry knows Romance and she does it with Style and Heart!!

ALLURING TURMOIL by Skye Turner (Bayou Stix Series) #YummyRockStar

Bayou Stix Book One
Skye Turner
Released September 10th, 2013
Buy Now at Amazon
Purchased by Reviewer
Reviewed by Lisa

Yes Ladies...I have found a New Author and a New Series that had me saying I want MORE MORE NOW!!!

Alexia Sloane is the twenty-six year old owner of the highly successful Louisiana coffee shop/bakery, Java and Sweeties. The past couple of years have been all she’s dreamed of and her business takes all of her focus, all of her heart.

Jude Delecroix is the lead singer of one of the most famous rock bands in the country, Bayou Stix, and the man who broke Lexi’s heart.

Lexi and Jude have a past.

When Jude comes back to town eight years after leaving to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a famous musician and comes face to face with Lexi, forces collide, old hurts are brought to the surface, and life as these two have been living it will never be the same.

There are two sides to every story, and what happens when the things you believed to be concrete suddenly crumble like ash and fade away?

What happens when two people afraid to face the past, become involved in the present? Can they hope for a future?

Welcome to Louisiana where humidity and passion are high and things are not always what they seem.

I have found recently that some of the Rock Star Romances just haven't been up my alley, some of the guys are hot...but can't keep me hanging on, and some of the heroines... meh, could do without them...but I have to say I have found a Series that I KNOW I am going to enjoy cause the author knows her Sexy Rock Gods and she writes heroines who know when it's time to melt at the feet of these sexy dudes...and the Bayou Stix boys are HOT!!

This Second Chance Romance will have your emotions all over the place...Your heart will be breaking, then pumping (along with your blood...oh mama), then all the pieces will some how be put back together again...and Jude Delecroix will certainly keep you satisfied from page one...with that bad boy persona, which is hiding the Jude that has been in love with one woman since he was in high school, Lexi.

Oh Mama....My girl Lexi...what a shock to see the only man she has ever loved, and lost, stroll into her Café....talk about OMG.  I had such a blast watching these two find each other again, and I was left hanging on, wanting to know WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED to break them up in the first place...well....you will certainly find out...and it is a shocker.  Yea, Lexi should have talked it out with him, but when you are young and so much is going on, I can understand where she came from, but Jude is just TOO CUTE...and Sweet, and Yummy, and lickable....I mean LIKEABLE....hee hee

So in conclusion...Um....READ THIS BOOK!!  I literally finished the last page and emailed Skye to ask if she was doing a Tour for the next book in the series, cause I wanted to GET ON THAT TRAIN and Get me some Blue and Jessie...Oh...now that womanizer is gonna kill me!!

Get it, Enjoy it, and be ready for the next book, ALLURING SEDUCTION.

On paper, Viive McBroome lives the perfect life—a key player in a fast-paced, technical field, one promotion away from real success—but that’s only if you ignore one little problem.

Sandwiched between one migraine and the next, Viive’s life is like those choose-your-own-adventure books you read as a kid, only less fun and with a lot more drugs. And lately, as her bosses politely march her toward a vacation that might never end, even the good days seem like a struggle for survival.

Faced with frustration from her loved ones and the dark machinations of a new coworker, Viive feels herself getting pulled under by guilt, apologies, and workplace shenanigans. But then she meets the Migraine Mafia, a quirky, vibrant support group, and her fragile camouflage begins to crumble. She discovers that a room full of strangers just might be able to change the way she views her illness—and realizes that if she doesn’t learn to ask for help, her health isn’t the only thing she stands to lose.

Sometimes painful, frequently hilarious, never dull, The Migraine Mafia is the story of one woman’s life-altering decision to thrive in the face of chronic illness.

Enter to win a Digital Copy of
Smoke Jumpers #3
(Released Today)
It’s supposed to be a quick wedding hook-up. She’s lonely. He’s available. After seeing Rio Donovan and Gia Jackson down the aisle, the sizzling sexual chemistry between Mimi Hart and Mack Johnson has this pair burning up the sheets in a night of no-holds fantasies. One night. No regrets. And no promises.
As Strong’s resident bad girl and bartender, Mimi has earned every inch of her reputation. Tattoos, motorcycles and dancing on the bar—Mimi’s all in. She’s fun and she’s tough, a hot sex-on-the-pool-table woman—not a sunset-and-kisses sweetheart. Until her wedding hook-up, Mack Johnson, turns into a man on a sensual mission…and threatens to send her heart into freefall even as her own past threatens to catch up with her.
Mack didn’t choose Strong—Strong chose him. Fresh from the warzones of the Middle East and battling PTSD demons, this Spec Ops soldier is most at home on the battlefield. Still, when Jack Donovan calls in a favor, he heads to Strong, California for fire season. Guns. Firefights. And chutes. These things make sense. One summer and then he heads back to the frontlines where he belongs. He never counted on falling in love with Strong—or with Mimi. She’s exactly what the doctor ordered. Now he wants all of Mimi—the sweet and the sour, the tough and the loving. And he’s ready to convince her one night—and one fire—at a time…

When not planted firmly in front of the laptop translating Engineer into English, I enjoy gardening, running (even if it’s just to the 7-11 for slurpees), and reading books curled up with my kids.
