#BlogTour “Marriage of Inconvenience” by Penny Reid


Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!


5 Cheese Loving CROWNS

I have had to sit and think about this review. End of the series books are hard for me to evaluate, and I’m sure hard for writers to compose. Readers want to see all their beloved characters, and they want a real romance between the main H/h. They want an HEA for everyone involved, and Penny Reid delivers in all categories.

Dan and Kat are two characters I have been waiting for since there was even an intimation of a romance between them, and they were worth the wait. Dan is just as perfect as I always suspected. Patient, kind, protective, understanding, and compassionate, he is the perfect counterpart to Kat. Underneath this of stolid hero is a man who is passionate and loves completely. Everything he does and all the sexual frustration is for her. His inner monologue not only made me love him for his acceptance of Kat and all her hangups but it also showed a funny side of the often stoic Dan the Security Man. Kat’s inner monologue also showed her humorous side, often providing comic relief at the perfect moment. Like all her friends, she is unique and completely original. Her “hangup” is based more on how she feels others will perceive her, which really works to develop an important theme in the novel. Readers get to see how these opinions of others have shaped her behavior and her thoughts and makes readers reflect on stigmas we attach to people.

Like most Penny Reid novels, Marriage of Inconvenience is more than just a romance. She draws in relevant social issues that people should be talking about (even with something as small as the definitions and explanations at the beginning of each chapter). Her discussion of mental illnesses through the use of characters shows a different side of it, and, as I said before, causes readers to examine how we treat others with mental illness and how we hurt or help them. What I’m always amazed with (and probably shouldn’t be at this point) is her ability to still keep the romance in the forefront of the storyline while still weaving in the examination of society’s issues. We still get the butterflies, the apprehension of the unknown feelings, the high of the first kiss, and the perfect bliss of the HEA, and she delivers and happy ending that not only makes readers happy for Dan and Kat but the whole crew readers have come to love.

This series is really something special, and not because it is Penny, although that is really reason enough, but because it really showcases a group of powerful and intelligent woman. A group of woman who support each other without question or judgment. A group of woman whose men kind of blend into their world. We see them live, laugh, and love with each other by their sides, and I am truly sad to say goodbye to these women.

#NewRelease “The Swedish Prince” by Karina Halle


The Swedish Prince, an all-new emotional standalone by Karina Halle is now LIVE!

Swedish Prince AMAZON


I never believed in fairy-tales.

Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my dusty doorstep.

At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?

Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

The Swedish Prince is a standalone romance inspired by Roman Holiday.

#WhoRuntheWorld Penna from “Rebel” by Rebecca Yarros

Penna from Rebel by Rebecca Yarros

Available NOW!


Rebel is one of my absolute favorite heroines ever!! EVER! She is everything I would want in a role model for my own daughters. Rebel is fierce and a badass athlete, dominating a male-centric sport. She works hard for her role on this world and never backs down from a challenge. She is passionate and goes after what she wants with abandon. Penelope is intelligent, loyal, and kind. She has a huge heart that wants to heal and forgive, and she works tirelessly to get back the parts of herself that she has lost. Rebel and Penelope make up who Penna is. These two different names represent the strength and vulnerability readers find in her character, and I found that I admired every single courageous part of her. There is not one aspect of her that I disliked, and there must be more Rebels not only in books but the world.

Rebel’s Letter to All the Girls (Written by Rebecca Yarros):

To the Girls—

To the girl who thinks she can’t, just because she’s a girl…

You can.

You can get dirty.

You can kick the football.

You can fly the fighter jet, join the army, go to law school, swim with sharks, or ride motocross in the X-Games.

To the girl who thinks she can’t break the gender barrier…

You have to.

Because every time we crush the wall that divides the pink from the blue, as if that has any bearing on who we are as individuals, we pave the way for the girls who come after us.

To the girl who wants to embrace her femininity…

You can play with the dolls.

You can bake the cakes.

You can have a tea party with all of your friends, real and imaginary.

You can wear the dresses, the pretty shoes, the bows—all of it.

I personally love high heels.

That doesn’t make you any less of a badass.

There is no “right way,” to be a girl.

You can also wear those same pretty dresses on a dirt bike—If you want to.

Be whatever you want, and be it for yourself.

That’s the thing about being a girl. None of us are exactly alike, and each of us are capable of achieving our wildest dreams, no matter if it’s to win the baking competition, or an X-Games medal.

To do that, we need only two things:

Faith in ourselves and faith in each other.

When we break the gender barriers, when we stand on the podium in a male-dominated sport, or take the political reigns in a male-dominated world, we show the next generation that it’s not just possible for women to stand as equals: it will become the norm.

When we respect and encourage the dreams of other women without judgment, bias, or jealousy, we crush the box others think defines us. We break the rules we never agreed to play by. We see each other not as sporty, or sweet, or girly, but as strong, individual women.

Women who can accomplish anything.

Voice your dreams.

Scream them to farthest corners of the world.

Give them life.

Give them your sweat, your tears, your time.

Don’t be ashamed if they don’t fit what others have assumed—the assumption isn’t your error—it’s theirs.

Be proud.

Peel off the sticker they labeled you with at birth, and define yourself.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, anyways.

Take the step, break the walls down.

If not for you, then for your daughter, your sister, your mother, or the little girl staring up that night sky, whispering her dreams in the quiet of her own heart.

Be her voice, too.

To the girls who think you can’t, just because you’re a girl…

You can. You will. Not in spite of being a girl.

But because you are one.

And girls rule.

#CoverReveal “Needing Him” by Kennedy Fox

We are thrilled to bring you the sexy new cover from the bestselling duo Kennedy Fox for their upcoming release NEEDING HIM releasing on APRIL 17th!

Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Model: Drew Leighty
Designer: RBA Designs
Release Date: April 17, 2018
*Each Bishop Brothers novel is an interconnected standalone*


Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor.
Hardass, brooding, and all business.

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor.
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor.

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night.

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.

Release Date: Coming Spring of 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Candi Kane

Cover Photo: Wander Aguiar


Homer Carnegie. Admit it—you know my name. Your kid’s got my e-trading card. Your husband sits up straighter when I stroll onto the TV screen. He knows I’m going to crack the bat and save the day. Even your grandma’s jonesing for my autograph. But women my age? They’re the worst. Or would that be the best?

It’s not my fault they line up at the door. They catch my balls all right, two at a time sometimes, or even three. Believe me, everybody wins.

At least they did—until the video. I heard TMZ paid a million for a bird’s eye view of Homer on his A-game. The only folks who didn’t watch with eager eyes? Red Sox management. They want me benched, or worse, shipped off to rehab.

It’s a long story, what happens next. How I end up on a boat, bound for the world’s most remote island: Tristan da Cunha. Just a speck of dust in the Atlantic.

Except my heart is there.

I don’t know that when I step onto the boat.

I don’t know a lot of things.

What I’ll covet…

What I’ll lose…

#NewRelease “Wanderlust” by Lauren Blakely

One fiery American woman and one hot British guy? The language of love knows no boundaries…

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely, comes the hot, new romance guaranteed to sweep you away while scorching the sheets, WANDERLUST! A brand new, sinfully sexy romance, WANDERLUST is now available on all retailers! Get your copy delivered now!



It looks like it is time to renew my passport, because Lauren Blakely’s Wanderlust not only had me falling in love with Griffin and Joy but also the city of Paris and my love of travel.

Griffin is an incredibly charismatic hero, like most Blakely male leads. From the moment we meet him, he is light and fun, and once you find out his need to travel and cross items off his bucket list, you just love him all the more. He is smart and adventurous, and his love of life and culture is incredibly alluring. I want my own Griffin to travel the world with.

Joy is just as adventurous as Griffin, but she is also looking to find herself by immersion in a new culture. My favorite aspect of her character is how she looks beyond the surface of what Paris has to offer, and she wanted to be a “real” Parisian. Her quest to achieve this is what puts her in direct contact with Griffin, and their journey to experience not only the culture but life together made me fall in love with both of them equally.

This story from the first moment is magical. I’m not sure if it Paris or Blakely’s writing, but from page one, I was captivated by this journey Yes, it has the typical Lauren Blakely components: hot, steamy moments, witty dialogue, charming and irresistible heroes, and wonderful leading ladies. It is also more than that. It is a story about self-discovery & about home being not where you are or who you are with.

Lauren Blakely absolutely never disappoints, and, although this one is a bit different in tone from her other novels, it is not any less wonderful, romantic, or hilarious. It is another must read. Just be warned, your travel bug will be ignited.

#BlogTour “Sinner” by Sierra Simone

SINNER by Sierra Simone

Release Date: March 15th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Designer: Letitia Hasser from RBA Designs


5 All I’ll Ever Want CROWNS

Sierra Simone has done it again! She has delivered one of the steamiest romances I have read in some time while also slipping in ideas about religion and human relationship with deities, giving readers thoughts to struggle with and come out with either new or strengthened beliefs.

Sean Bell is nothing that I thought he would be. Well, the hot and dirty talking part is spot on, but he was so much more broken then I ever could have imagined. He is a man who punishes himself with the guilt he carries. He uses sex and degradation as a way to show his brokenness within himself and his relationship with God, unbeknownst to him. He is a man who sees things in black and white, sinners and saints, right and wrong. His anger taints his view of the world. Watching him, though, with Zenny and seeing him wrestle with her theological notions is rewarding. We see his growth, his ability to open up and love truly and unselfishly, and his evolution into someone new through it all. He exemplifies how love, not just romantic, is transformative and healing.

Like Sean, Zenny is a heroine I didn’t see coming. Similar to Sierra Simone’s previous heroine, Zenny seems small, maybe even weak on the surface (maybe this is due to her physical description), but her steadfast beliefs, her intelligence, and her ability to reflect speak to an immense strength rare for someone her age. She is strength of MIND. She is compassionate and understanding but forthright with what she wants, never afraid to make demands. Zenny’s unwavering faith is admirable, and it is through her eyes that readers get to experience a more open religious theology. Her journey of self-discovery and reflection is one everyone should experience, whether it is of a religious nature or not. Make no mistake, though, that neither of these journeys are easy; It is brutal, heart-wrenching, and, yet, uplifting.

Sinning with Sean Bell is exactly what I thought it would be, hot and dirty. The scenes between him and Zenny melted my Kindle. Sierra wrote his character so vividly that I could her the timbre of his voice as he spouted his delicious, sexy filth and giving his orders, making me weak in the knees. Like her other stories, Sinner discuss societal issues, in this particular case religion and faith, showcasing issues plaguing theology, areas of reformation and change, and most importantly, the belief and anger most people struggle with in relation to their relationship with God. Sierra does not get on her soapbox telling people how to live, but through her characters she offers up questions & asks readers to consider alternatives, to become more reflective. I found myself as equally enamored with this aspect of the story as I did with the romance of Zenny and Sean. She intertwines romance and religion so flawlessly that there cannot be one without the other, and even in their dirtiest moments and scandalous conversations, we see religion take a part. Her ability to make sex not shameful but holy will never fail to astound me.

When I pick up a Sierra Simone novel, I know that I’m getting a story that will not only be hot and dirty but will also be a story that forces me to examine the world, my beliefs, and my established perceptions. Through her characters she present ideas for readers to grapple with and we come out changed as a result. For better or worse? Well, that is up to the reader, but no matter the characters or the journey, Sierra Simone effects change with her words, making her a truly inspirational writer not just in romance but literature as well.

#BlogTour “My Way Back to You” by Claire Contreras

My Way Back to You by Claire Contreras
Book 2, Second Chances Duet
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: March 15th, 2018



My Way Back To You was the HEA I needed after Claire ripped my heart out at the end of Book one. It was sweet and at times hot, but it was more about healing and learning to love one another again.

Rowan and Tessa aren’t the often immature and childish characters who we met in book one. They have grown, evolved, and matured. They have been shaped anew from the heartbreak and fallout from Then There Was You. Who they are now, I absolutely love. They are rational, have better priorities, and they are willing to open their hearts. It does make life less dramatic and angsty, but much more lovable and relatable characters than before.

This plot was less angsty than I expected, and while I wanted a bit more, I also kind of feel like I was put through the ringer with book one, so I’m okay with the lack of angst. There is a lot for Rowan to atone for and he does, and Tessa doesn’t necessarily make it easy for him but she isn’t overly harsh. She is protecting her heart, which is completely understandable. The one part that I did expect was a bigger involvement from Camryn, but I was incredibly happy with the ending and where Claire leaves these characters in the end.

This entire duet is a must read. It is angsty and filled with drama to be sure, but My Way Back to You soothes it out, heals the cracks, and shows that some people are just meant to be. It might just take them some time to find their way, but they will in the end.

#NewRelease “Hit Girl” by Tia Louise

Title: Hit Girl
Author: Tia Louise
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Thriller

Release Date: March 19, 2018


4.5 Better Life CROWNS

From the moment I finished the Under the Lights duet, I was hoping and praying for Molly’s story. Just like her, I need to see her her justice, whether that was through legal means or vigilante revenge. It just needed to happen, and Tia Louise delivered one wild ride of hate and vengeance as well as love and rebirth. I couldn’t have been happier with her journey.

Molly Dixon is my type of heroine. She is strong and resourceful, smart as a whip, and, although she tries to hide it, a heart that is big and filled with love. Molly’s story is a hard one, though, and while some readers might not like what happens to her, it is unfortunately a story that is real. Her fallout from it is sad and brews anger, making readers understand her need to make them pay , but it also makes them want a different life for her. Readers want her to be able to move on and find peace and love, and this is her journey, her evolution to become more than a victim. Her development as a character shows how much we need love and family and that true joy comes from being able to shed the past to live a joyful life filled with promise and love.

Joshua is a secondary character in this story, and if we are using romance labels, then the hero. But this is an inept name, because Molly saves herself. He along with someone else (who will remain a mystery until you read it) are the impetuses that make her reflect and evaluate the life she leads. They are the cause of her change and her choice to step out of the darkness. Josh, though, is an incredibly worthy hero for Molly. With him, readers see the struggle of loving someone who is legally doing something wrong but understanding their reason for doing it. Readers see that the world isn’t black and white but shades of grey, especially when it comes to justice and matters of the heart.

Hit Girl starts out with a bang, and Tia Louise immediately throws readers into the revenge plot. They see how vengeance has wrapped itself around Molly, but she also shows how love is battling to win. She juxtaposes her violence with her feelings for Josh, showing the internal fight going on inside of her head. While there is suspense that will have to readers biting their nails, this is a story about love, about healing, and finding a way out of the darkness and into the promise of a better future. Readers will be absolutely thrilled with where she leaves Molly and Josh.

Hit Girl is absolutely everything I ever could have asked for in Molly’s story. Tia Louise intertwines revenge and love and suspense and romance to give is another story I just couldn’t put down!


This book can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. The Under the Lights duet features Molly and the other characters we see in HG, but this is her story and her HEA. However, I will say that my love of this book and her journey is amplified by the fact that I did read the duet. Tia Louise gives you all the info you need to enjoy Molly’s story, but I was already emotionally invested in her character and her journey before I even read the first page

#CoverReveal “Dirty” by Callie Hart

DIRTY by Callie Hart

Release Date: March 30th

Cover Designer: Callie Hart


Face of an angel.

Body of a god.

And a mouth so dirty he could make the devil blush…

Fix Marcosa’s time can be bought with money, but he isn’t selling sex. Murderers, rapists, criminals: if you’re on the wrong side of Fix’s moral code, you’re in trouble. The kind of trouble that winds up getting you killed. As a hitman for hire, Fix is no stranger to violence. He’s merciless. Relentless. A true savage, down to the roots of his very soul. You can beg. You can plead. You can pray, but it won’t do you any good. Once the tall, dark stranger arrives at your doorstep, it’s already too late to repent.

Sera Lafferty’s no stranger to heartbreak. With an abusive father and a dependant sister, her life has been one of sacrifice and compromise. As soon as she sets eyes on Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, she recognizes the darkness in him and makes a vow: she will not get involved. But trapped inside a motel room with the sexiest man to ever walk the earth? Throw in some tequila and the storm to end all storms, and Sera finds herself worshipping at the altar of Marcosa.

She knows she made a mistake.

She knows she needs to run.

But when she witnesses the assassin at work first hand, she knows it’s far too late. Thrown into the back of his sleek black ride, Sera finds herself trapped, and in more way than one. Fix is deadly. He’s demanding, he’s dirty, and he’s determined to claim her for his own.
