{New Release} The Girl & Her Ren (The Ribbon Duet Book 2)- Pepper Winters

SBPR-RB-BANNER-1.jpg

The Girl and Her Ren by Pepper Winters
The Ribbon Duet Book 2
Publication Date: June 5th, 2018
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

ebook (1)

“What do you do when you write down all your secrets? No…that’s not enough. What do you do when you write down all your secrets and the one person who should never read them does?

I’ll tell you what you do.

You hope.”

REN

Ren didn’t know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own.

To begin with he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything.

Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly.

But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.

DELLA

I was stupid to write my secrets down, but I’d been stupid before so it was nothing new.

I couldn’t blame him, hate him, fix him.

I tried to move on without him.

But no matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to delete the secrets I’d written.

Until something happened.

Until he came back and read my stupid secrets.

And nothing was the same after that.

VanDyken-DirtyExes-24778-CV-FT-V5 (1).jpg

They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later?

Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself.

Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price.

Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Dangerous Control kindle cover

Not all fantasies are safe, sane, and consensual. Welcome to the world of The Gallery…

Milo Fierro lives for two things, dominance and music. At The Gallery, where depravity rules, he’s known for his passionate desires, but on the outside, he’s learned to hide beneath a veneer of dark-eyed professionalism. It’s too dangerous to be himself. Most women don’t understand.

Alice definitely doesn’t understand. Her father was his violin teacher for years, and now that she and Milo are adults, she thinks they can be friends. The girl he knew as “Lala” draws him in with her grace and kindness, unaware of his ugly, hidden side. He can’t touch her, or even stand near her. He doesn’t dare reach out to her, no matter how much her talent and beauty inflames his lusts. She deserves better, deserves a man who’s nothing like him…

If only she wasn’t so impossible to resist.

Excerpt:

I let out a tortured breath and pressed harder against her, body to body. If we weren’t clothed, I’d be inside her. I wouldn’t have been able to go for a condom. I would have just thrust inside her and ridden her without mercy. Gentle lovemaking? Fuck. Even with clothes between us, I could feel myself turning to a monster, wanting to devour her, consume her, possess her with rough, unrestrained passion born of too much longing. Years of longing.

My body still tried to argue with my mind, as I pulled her thighs wider and slid my body against hers, mimicking penetration. Maybe she was into violence. Maybe she was into rough sex. Maybe she wanted a monster for a lover. Maybe she was into dungeons where submissive women served Dominant men and weren’t allowed safe words.

Maybe…

Maybe I could restrain myself before I revealed the depth of my perversion, and destroyed our friendship for life. I pulled away, exerting the most effort I’d ever exerted in anything, missing her taste before our lips even parted. My whole body trembled at the physical agony of parting our bodies when I wanted her so much.

“Wait,” I said. I forced myself off the couch to kneel beside her. “Please, we can’t do this. If we start, things will go too far…”

{New Release} The Lies I’ve Told – J.L. Berg

TLIT-SBPRBANNER-BT.jpg

The Lies I’ve Told by J.L. Berg
Publication Date: June 4th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Lies_iBooks

Synopsis: From USA Today bestselling author J.L. Berg comes a brand new By the Bay stand-alone novel…

Everything was going according to plan…

After years of working my way up the corporate ladder, it was finally my time to shine. I was about to receive the promotion of a lifetime.

But just like that, my life was destroyed with a single career crushing email.

Now, I am headed back home to North Carolina, under the ruse of an extended vacation to help run the family inn while my sister is on maternity leave. After all, what is family for? Plus, a few days at the beach could definitely help uncomplicate this crazy life of mine.

Enter Aiden Fisher.

Aiden is a guest at my sister’s inn. He’s wicked hot, a huge flirt and has one of the sexiest British accents I’ve ever heard. But beyond all that, I see a darkness in his soul, as if he’s carrying a great weight upon his shoulders.

I find myself pushing back my trip home to Florida in hopes that maybe I’ll look into those hazel brown eyes and finally see truth shining back instead of lies. That maybe he’ll stop running and tell me the truth for once.

But you know what they say about liars? It takes one to know one and I’ve been telling the biggest lie of all – I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with Aiden.

And isn’t that the scariest truth of all?

Excerpt:

My eyes bolted open as sunlight from the windows glared down at me.

Where am I?

I sat up, quietly stretching as if I had all the time in the world.

Because I did, right?

No job. No responsibilities.

Responsibilities…

Shit!

Breakfast for the guests!

I bolted out of bed, frantically searching for my clothes. Where were my clothes? I tried to think back to the night before, but it was blurry.

Hazy.

And then the hammering in my head began.

Shit, how much did I drink last night?

“Where are you running off to so early?”

The deep British accent had me stopping in my tracks.

Last night…

I turned on my heels, tugging on the short shirt I had on, wishing it were suddenly a dress. Or a robe.

Or anything longer than a shirt.

Aiden’s eyes perused my body with a wide grin on his face as he casually tucked his hands behind his head. I tried not to notice the way the muscles in his arms flexed.

Or the fact that, besides a carefully placed sheet, he was basically lying naked before me.

“Oh my God,” I whispered. My fingers raked through my hair as I tried to remember the night before. “We didn’t…did we?”

The question had him immediately sitting up in bed, causing that well-placed sheet to shift.

I gulped as all of him—and I did mean all of him—came into view.

Oh Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

I turned around, my cheeks flushing as heat spread through my body. He wasn’t just naked. He was naked and very much awake.

“You don’t remember?” he asked as I listened to the bed groan as he stood.

“No,” I admitted. “Do you?”

I heard the telltale sign of jeans being zipped, giving me the courage to turn back around. Sure enough, he was decent.

Well, as decent as a shirtless, hot-as-fuck Brit could be. God, I thought his muscles had muscles.

“Um, no,” he answered, but there was a hint of sadness to his eyes as he reached down to grab his shirt off the floor.

I let out a tiny whimper of protest as the black T-shirt slid down his body.

He really was beautiful.

I shook my head, trying to keep focused. “Oh, that’s great. Just fucking great. So, what happened here exactly?”

He pointed to the pile of clothes and the mostly empty alcohol bottle on the nightstand, that sadness drying up as he let out a breath and straightened, his features hardening. “I think that’s pretty clear.”

My arms folded across my chest before I realized that only brought my shirt higher up my waist. Aiden didn’t miss the extra peek of flesh either as I watched his grin widen.

“Nope, I don’t believe you. I don’t do one-night stands. Ever.”

“Ever?” he echoed, surprise written all over his stupid face.

“Yes. Ever. Why is that so hard to believe? Do I look like the one-night-stand kind of girl?”

“Well, right now. Sort of.”

{Preorder} The Controversial Princess – Jodi Ellen Malpas

Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Her father is The King of England.

She is The Controversial Princess.

Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

New Release, Excerpt, Giveaway, & Review: An Ex for Christmas (Love Unexpectedly) – Lauren Layne

Named Best Book of the Month by Amazon

AN EX FOR CHRISTMAS
Love Unexpectedly
Lauren Layne
Releasing Nov 7, 2017
Loveswept

She’s making a list—and checking it twice. But is there a nice guy among all her naughty exes?
The New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines returns with a charming friends-to-lovers rom-com.

When a psychic tells spunky, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she’s already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an “Ex List” and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they’re meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she’s never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.

Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly’s list break her heart, and he’s not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark’s always been there for her, but the timing’s never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.


NOW AVAILABLE!

Heather’s Review: This was a straight up Hallmark Christmas movie (which I love)! Lauren should just pitch the idea and see what the response is.

This was a great friends to lovers story between Kelly and Mark. It was sweet, funny and kept you entertained.

With all of Kelly’s quirks Mark was the quiet in her storm and just perfect for her. They also had great chemistry, they were p erect together.

Heather’s Rating: *****

Disclaimer: An ARC was requested in order to take part in the blog tour, with no expectation of a favorable review. All opinions are our own.

I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was weird reading Christmas in October, but it’s one of my favorite holidays so I loved it!

As I walk, I check the weather app on my phone, delighted to see that while it’s nothing but rain today, there’s a chance of a snow shower tomorrow. Nothing says Christmas break like snow.
I just miss my train, but there’s a decent-ish voice singing “White Christmas” nearby, and the platform’s not too crowded, so waiting’s not as bad as it could be.
My eye catches on a middle-aged woman who’s set up camp under one of the stairwells. It’s not unusual to see all manner of people under the streets of New York, although this one’s better dressed than most. She’s wearing a blousy red shirt, jeans, and ankle boots, and is sitting cross-legged on a plaid blanket. She’s got twigs of what seem to be fake roses in her hair.
None of that’s the weird part.
What’s weird is that she’s watching me. Intently.
We make awkward eye contact, and I give a quick smile before turning my attention back to my phone.
But I still feel her eyes on me.
Not in an unfriendly way, not in the way that makes me mentally catalog whether or not I saw any cops on my way down here who would hear me if I scream. She doesn’t seem eager to push me onto the train tracks either, and since that’s every New Yorker’s secret fear, that’s a plus.
Still, the focus is unsettling. I glance up again, and her eyes lock on mine. Her dark gaze is clear and focused, and I can’t decide if that’s more or less disturbing than if she seemed sort of hazy.
Then she smiles right at me. “Kelly.”
I get immediate goosebumps for reasons that have nothing to do with the winter weather. She knows my name.
“Come.” She beckons. “Come. I see.”
Now you’re thinking, Hell, no. Run!
I should be thinking the same, and on some level, I am, but . . .
There are a couple dozen people around. None are paying attention to me, but it’s not like I’m all alone in a dark alley.
And look, we’ve already established that I believe in fate expressing itself through a Magic 8 ball and horoscopes, and though I haven’t mentioned it yet, I totally avoid black cats, the number thirteen, and walking under ladders.
I also believe that there’s such a thing as sight. I know, because my grandma had it.
Grandma Shirley was one of those delightfully batty old ladies that most people dismissed as quirky, but nobody can deny that she seemed to know stuff. She knew when I’d win my soccer game, and by how many points. She knew when her cat’s litter of kittens would be born, down to the minute. Once she’d even predicted an earthquake, even though they’re really rare in New York.
She’d passed away when I was in eleventh grade (she’d predicted the when and how of that too), and though I didn’t inherit her talents, I’ve never stopped believing that some people see and know things that they shouldn’t. I call it the Sight.
I step closer, and the woman grins and beckons me even nearer.
I stop a healthy few feet away. I’m superstitious, not crazy.
The woman leans forward. “You seek love.”
Huh. Color me unimpressed. I mean, don’t most humans seek love? Sure, I’m recently single, and I don’t particularly want to be. And maybe I sometimes try a little too hard to find my forever guy.
But I’m not hearing anything other than generic lucky guesses from this lady.
“Sure,” I say, already starting to back away.
She holds up a hand. “The one you seek? Your forever guy, the love of your life . . .”
I freeze, because her phrasing echoes my thoughts almost exactly. A coincidence? Maybe. I don’t move away just yet, willing to hear her out.
She smiles again. “You’ve already met him.”
I blink. “What? I think you may want to recheck that crystal ball. I’m single.”
Her smile merely grows. “I didn’t say you weren’t single. I said you’d already met him. You just let him go. He’ll come back to you before Christmas.”
Whoa whoa whoa. This is . . .
Huh.
“You’re telling me that the love of my life is one of my exes?”
She extends both of her palms as though to say, There you have it!
I stifle a little surge of disappointment. Clearly she hasn’t met my exes. There are some decent ones in the mix, but mostly they’re duds, and none of them make my heart beat faster. Well, maybe—
Nope. No. Do not go there.
Thankfully, I feel the rumble of an oncoming train, and a glance over my shoulder tells me my ride outta here is approaching.
“Thanks very much,” I say with a strained smile. “Merry Christmas.”
“Happy holidays,” she says with a nod, standing and gathering up her blanket. Apparently she’s taken a cue from Madison Meyers and is sticking close to the PC route. Fair enough.
I lift a hand in a wave and move toward the train, but her next words give me a fresh wave of new goosebumps.
“Tell your parents happy anniversary. Thirty’s going to be a magical year for them.”
I whip my head around. “How did you—”
The woman is gone.
Like vanished gone.
Leaving me to wonder . . .
If a woman I’d never met was right about my parents’ anniversary, was she also right about other stuff?
Have I already met my one true love?

Pre-Order Sale: Beguiled on a Christmas Morning (Thieves of the Ton #4.5) – Sandra Sookoo

Holidays are best spent with the ones you love, especially when adventure is in the offing.

It’s the Christmastide season, and the Hawkins family is at their country estate in Kent. Emmaline, the Countess of Archewyne, is excited, for it’s her first Christmas with her little family as well as one of the few she’s spent in England.

Passing his leisure time with his loved ones gives Miles Lawrence Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Archewyne, great pleasure, as does anticipating their faces when they open his gifts. And he’s found the most splendid thing for his wife—a fresh archeological dig of ancient Roman origin on his property.

When plans for Christmas Eve preparations go awry and Miles is taken hostage at gunpoint, Emmaline is at her wit’s end. Heartsick and worried, only a clue from some overly affectionate geese will be able to save her beloved’s life. If she can reach him in time, they’ll both find themselves beguiled on a Christmas morning.

AUTHOR BIO: Sandra Sookoo is a bestselling author who firmly believes every person deserves acceptance and a happy ending. Most days you can find her creating scandal and mischief in the Regency-era, serendipity and happenstance in Victorian America or snarky humor in the contemporary world. Reading romance is a lot like eating fine chocolates—you can’t just have one. Good thing books don’t have calories!

When she’s not wearing out computer keyboards, Sandra spends time with her real life Prince Charming in central Indiana where she’s been known to goof off and make moments count because the key to life is laughter. A Disney fan since the age of ten, when her soul gets bogged down and her imagination flags, a trip to Walt Disney World is in order. Nothing fuels her dreams more than the land of eternal happy endings, hope and love stories.

Spotlight Series: Killer Unleashed & Deadly Tails (Unleashed Mysteries Books 1 & 2) – Beth Prentice

From USA Today bestselling author Beth Prentice comes a mystery that’s gone to the dogs…

Meet Chloe: she has a house, a best friend, and absolutely no idea how to say “no.” So when her elderly neighbor asks her to surrender a little dog named Theo to the animal shelter, of course Chloe agrees. And when Theo pulls out his big puppy dog eyes, Chloe reluctantly gains a dog. And that’s when the trouble starts.

An attempted dog snatching, a break in, a masked attacker, and a hit and run all add up to big problems. Everybody seems to be looking for something. If only Chloe knew what that something was. And with a sexy new neighbor named Brody, a creepy new neighbor named Rick, and her ex-boyfriend Jack snooping around, the men in Chloe’s life seem to be multiplying. With the help of her new neighbor, Chloe may just be able to figure out what key Theo holds to the whole mess…if she can keep them both alive!

Chloe McDermott’s life in Westport is pretty close to perfect. She has a good job, a gorgeous boyfriend, Brody, and an adorable little dog, Theo.

But when Chloe receives a gift of an old chessboard from an elderly friend, her perfect life unexpectedly falls apart. Theo is dognapped, the chessboard is stolen, and her friend apparently commits suicide in his home. But when the autopsy reveals a murder, Chloe knows something doesn’t add up, and she suspects the old game board is at the center of it all. She enlists the help of her boyfriend’s hot-headed father and her flamboyantly fabulous BFF to get to the heart of the truth.

Giveaway: Dangerous Deeds: (The Westport Mysteries Book 1) – Beth Prentice

**SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR A SPECIAL GIVEAWAY**

*PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED UNDER THE TITLE It Started With A House*

Meet Lizzie. She’s 31 and having a premature mid-life crisis. So, she bought a lonely, run down old house that pulled on her heartstrings.

But with the purchase Lizzie gets more than she bargained for. She didn’t expect the engagement ring and letters of forbidden love hidden under the attic floorboards. She didn’t expect the lazy cat, or the drop dead gorgeous handyman. And she definitely didn’t expect the stalker.

As the renovation begins and the house starts to slowly return to its former glory, the letters dog her dreams. Why was the writer forced to turn away from his love? Why was their love forbidden? And why was this all hidden under the floorboards?

Filled with a drive to reunite the ring with its rightful owner, Lizzie engages the help of her new handyman, her crazy family and her sex crazed Grandma, and sets on a journey of lost love, heartache, and public damnation.

But can Lizzie restore the house to its former glory, and find who it all once belonged to before her stalker catches up with her? Or will she lose everything…including her life?

Release Day: Fiance For the Night – Melissa McClone

She needs a fiancé—for only one night.

Cassandra Daniels’ parents refuse to accept that she doesn’t need a boyfriend to be happy. To stop their meddling and matchmaking, Cassandra creates a fictional fiancé, a man who sounds so unlike their carefree and unconventional daughter that her mom and dad want to meet him for dinner, immediately.

No problem. San Francisco is a big city. Finding a fiancé won’t be that hard.

All Troy McKnight wants is a beer after a long day at work. But when a pretty blonde asks him to dinner and wants him to pretend to be her fiancé, Troy agrees to help. Playing make-believe could be fun, especially since he gets a free meal, and he’ll have a great story to tell.

When one lie leads to another, however, the fake engagement spirals into real wedding plans. Cassandra and Troy must stop the madness and put an end to their charade. But what if her fiancé for the night is the perfect husband for life?

** This second edition has been rewritten and updated. 8000 words have also been added. **

1. What made you want to become an author? When I was younger I never had the desire to write. In fact it was the last thing I wanted to do. But my mum used to tell me a lot of stories about how she grew up in the war. These stories were always happy memories of hers and often they were very funny tales of what my Grandma used to get up to. I thought that those stories needed to be written down. However, when I started to write, another story came to me. Completely fiction but had hints of truth in it. And Dangerous Deeds was born, lol

2. Do you have a playlist that you listen to when writing? No, I just have the local radio station playing in the background. Most of the time I don’t even hear it, lol

3. What made you chose to write in such a dark and gritty genre? Even though the subject I write is dark, I write with a lot of humour and keep it all fun and light ☺ I chose to write that because it’s what I love to read!

4. Do you start writing from the beginning straight through the end or do you write whatever comes to mind? A bit of both, lol. I try to write from beginning to end, but some days it just doesn’t work, so I write whatever part comes to mind.

5. What do you do if you hit a stumbling block? Take my laptop to the beach, grab a coffee and relax. Sometimes I get some writing done, but other times I just people watch Whichever, it usually clears my mind and gets me back on track

6. What is your favorite Disney movie? I love just about everything Disney, but Pirates of the Caribbean would be my favorite. The first one. Not the typical Disney movie, I know ☺

7. Who (or what) inspires you? Everything and everyone. Sometimes it’s just a couple of words someone says, other times it’s a situation that they are telling you about. Either way, a plot starts to form and I take it from there.

8. Are you a fly by the seat of your pants writer or do you plot first? I plot the story but fill it all in by the seat of my pants

9. Who are your favorite authors? Janet Evanovich and Sophie Kinsella

10. What is your favorite TV show? Fixer Upper. I’m definitely a Joanna Gaines fan. One day I hope to own a house that would suit that style so that I redecorate my heart out, lol!

1. What made you want to become an author? I have always loved reading and writing, as a little kid I used to be terrified of nightmares and so afraid to go to sleep and I used to make up little stories in my head to distract myself from my fears until I would fall asleep. As I got older I still enjoyed making up stories so started writing them down, then after several years of that I decided why not take the leap and actually write a book to publish. Now I cannot imagine not writing books, I just love it so much, and would do it even if no one ever read what I wrote, although it is such a thrill when someone tells me they enjoyed one of my books!!

2. Do you have a playlist that you listen to when writing? Okay, so I’m actually a weird person who doesn’t like music!! 😐 (Angie: Not like music?! *gasp*)

3. What made you chose to write in such a dark and gritty genre? I’m not sure, I’ve always just liked darker stories, even as a kid it was what I loved to read. I think my two biggest things I love about crime/suspense/thriller reads are 1. when the main character is rescued, I just love that feeling of the fact they were saved after battling through something terrible, and 2. I love delving into the psychological side of why someone would want to hurt others, I’ve always been fascinated by psychology and why people do what they do, and I love that I can incorporate that into my writing or read it in other peoples stories!

4. Do you start writing from the beginning straight through the end or do you write whatever comes to mind? I am a total and complete over the top organised planner and writer! 😄

I have a super detailed system for my planning, and then when I start writing I work through from beginning to end. I even have to do the same with a series, if I have some great ideas for a later book I don’t let myself start it until I’ve finished whatever is the next one in the series. I do however write down LOTS of notes, whenever I have an idea it goes straight into that series document so I don’t forget!

5. What do you do if you hit a stumbling block? If its a really bad stumbling block I will set the book away for a while. One actually got started and scrapped four times before I got the finished product, and at the moment I’m writing Seven and I had to set it aside for over a year after trying out about three different storylines before I found something that I was happy with. If its only a minor stumbling block then I work through it. I write a minimum of one scene a day, because I find if I get out of my schedule then its really hard to get back into it, so if I’m struggling with a scene it still must get done that day, it can always get fixed up in editing!

6. What is your favorite Disney movie? As a huge Disney fan that is a super hard question!! I love all the princess movies the best, and my favourite would have to be Beauty and the Beast, but I love them all so much!! 😍

7. Who (or what) inspires you? Other authors who write in my genres who write the most amazing books that draw me in and make me feel like I really know the characters and am a part of their world!!

8. Are you a fly by the seat of your pants writer or do you plot first? I’m a planner!!

My system is I write the story in 50 words or less, this makes me REALLY have to know exactly what my story is about! Then I write the story again in about 250 words, this helps me to know what the secondary parts of the story are. Then I plot out the book scene by scene so I can work on pacing, and since I write crime books making sure I space out the reveals of bits of pertinent information so I can hopefully avoid information dumps!! My scene by scene plotting usually has lots of notes beside it of exactly what will happen in the scene. My detailed planning really helps me avoid major editing because I can pick up anything that isn’t working before I get to it, most of the time at least!

9. Who are your favorite authors? I have a lot!! Some of them are Allison Brennan, Karen Rose, Kendra Elliot, Melinda Leigh, Pepper Winters, JL Drake, Michelle Horst, and so many many more!! And I’m always looking for new authors to add to my one click list!!

10. What is your favorite TV show? I don’t have a single favourite but I love most crime shows, Criminal Minds, I used to love the CSI franchise, Law and Order SVU, American Horror Story, plus I enjoy a few lighter shows, Everybody Loves Raymond and Friends were two of my favourites, and I still love Full House which was my favourite show when I was a kid!!
