COVER REVEAL 

 

Check out this smoking hot cover! A Little Bit Wicked, the first book in the Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside, a brand new series of standalone romances by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster is releasing on May 20, 2020!

 

A captivatingly funny and deeply emotional new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

 

Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven't met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore from Melissa. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun, others will tear at your heartstrings with injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!

 

In A LITTLE BIT WICKED…

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much. But Justin Wicked has had his eye on her for a long time, and he is sure the inescapable heat between them runs far deeper than just physical attraction. Could their difficult pasts be drawing them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?

Buckle up for a spectacular ride, and fall in love with Justin and Chloe, in A Little Bit Wicked, a fun, sexy standalone romance.

BLURB

 

For Autumn Hickman, online dating has been an exercise in nothing more than coffee and failure. There simply isn’t a man on the planet who can compare to her best friend, Trey Wattson. And while Trey is everything Autumn has ever wanted in a partner, she knows the man who loves life’s most beautiful things could never cherish anything as scarred and mangled as her.

 

Trey Wattson is in love with his best friend, but he can't seem to reach her. She’s guarded, and for good reason, but Trey doesn’t care. He knows Autumn’s soul, and it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Desperate to claim Autumn’s heart for his own, Trey conspires with The Wolves to create a fake profile on the dating site Autumn frequents. But the more Autumn trusts Trey’s online persona, the more it becomes clear that Trey is gambling with the very thing he wants most of all.

 

Return to Tess Thompson’s beloved Cliffside Bay and discover for yourself why true love is built on honesty and trust, and why best friends often make the very best life partners, in this anonymous online romance set in your favorite charming small town.

Ebook/Audio Review: Fated for Love (The Bradens at Trusty #2; The Bradens #8; Love in Bloom #17) by: Melissa Foster (author) B.J. Harrison (narrator)

Fated for Love (The Bradens at Trusty #2; The Bradens #8; Love in Bloom #17)  - B.J. Harrison, Melissa Foster

 

 

Are they written in the stars or fated to give into their scars? I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I think I'm in love. Callie and Wes ARE my favorite Melissa Foster duo. She's a diva of books. He's a wanderer searching for home. It couldn't be more obvious that sparks were bound to fly. Fated for Love reads like the sweetest serenade. Beneath the backdrop of the mountain terrain, a rugged cowboy and a timid bookworm find the courage to fall in love. Hearts are broken, pride is bruised and emotions run deep, but the climb to ever after, could be the greatest love story ever told. Whether in ebook or audio, this couple captivates.

The Broken One (Corisi Billionaires #1) by: Ruth Cardello

The Broken One (Corisi Billionaires #1) - Ruth Cardello

 

 

And the legacy continues ... 


The Corisi adventures began with a domineering rogue and his surprise Cinderella. To be perfectly honest Dominic and Abby were the start of my love affair with author Ruth Cardello. Six years later and numerous favorites more and my heart still belongs to this unforgettable couple. The Broken One allowed me to revisit a few of my favorite characters, while introducing a new generation and reacquainting hearts with a few overlooked facts. This time around it's Sebastian and Heather who have hearts skipping a beat. These strangers are the key to unraveling an emotion packed past and the start of a long overdo healing process. With a captivating backstory, a heartstopping romance and a crew of adorable matchmakers, Cardello reminds me why I continue to adore her talent now and hopefully years into the future.

Ebook/Audio Review: Damaged! (The Walker Brothers #3) by J.S. Scott (Author), Elizabeth Powers (Narrator)

In a life filled with lemons, Kenzie and Dane have no place to go but up. Damaged blast a hole right through the center of a heart. From a very young age both Dane and Kenzie have seen how unfair life can be, but when love steps in, each may find anything is possible. Loners by choice, realists by necessity can a leap of faith help heal two broken hearts? Scott has a way of opening hearts and minds with the most traumatic of characters. Powers gives life to intriguing characters with her charismatic personality and emotional delivery. Like Kenzie and Dane, Powers and Scott are a perfect match.

BEAUTY AND THE BAYOU (BOYS OF THE BAYOU) BY ERIN NICHOLAS

 

 

 

Release DateAugust 13, 2019

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A sexy small town, beauty and the beast rom com! 

Sawyer Landry knows he's been beastly to be around for the past few months. But he can't seem to remember how to be fun-loving and friendly. Until he sees Juliet Dawson on his boat dock... and realizes that hip waders are, apparently, one of his turn-ons. But despite the beauty in the boots, the last thing he needs right now is a city girl in his way for the next two weeks. 

But he's not really getting a vote. Juliet is determined that her little brother rebuild the dock he and his idiot friends smashed. She's quirky, klutzy, independent... and possibly an even bigger pessimist than Sawyer is. He's incredibly drawn to the cynical fish-out-of-water, who seems to be the one person who isn't intimidated by his growling. 

The big, gruff boat captain is the first person in a long time to want to watch out for her and Juliet finds that hotter than his grandma's jambalaya. Well, that and his sexy scar, his emotional baggage, and the sense of humor and fun that is buried deep. 

But Sawyer doesn't need any more people to worry about long-term and the things that make him feel protective of Juliet aren't going to go away. So, this two-week adventure can't be anything more than a fling. With Juliet down on the bayou, there's an even bigger threat than alligators and hurricanes. There's the very good chance of someone ending up with a broken heart.

REVIEWBEAUTY AND THE BAYOU (BOYS OF THE BAYOU) BY ERIN NICHOLAS

 

Beauty and the Bayou (Boys of the Bayou, #3)Beauty and the Bayou by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Sawyer and Juliet are my favorite Erin Nicholas' couple. After watching them together, it's hard for me to imagine anyone not leaving Beauty and the Bayou with a smile. She's the Beauty to his beast and boy do they set off sparks. Tragedy has made him a loner with a penchant for grouchiness. Juliet may be a tad naive, but she's no pushover. Her heart makes her fearless, although a tad clueless. They shouldn't work, but my heart kept hoping they would. Nicholas continues to enchant with her irresistible characters that charm their way into your heart.

THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND (BAD BOYFRIEND) BY ERIKA KELLY

 

 

 

Release DateAugust 13, 2019

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

Princess Gone Wild!

 

 

 

When Princess Rosalina discovers her fiancé cheating on her, she’s done being dutiful. Jumping on a plane, she lands five thousand miles away in a world of hot cowboys, jean skirts, and tequila. Grabbing her chance to fly under the radar, she plans on acting out every single fantasy she’s denied herself while trying to meet the expectations of her family and country.

 

 

 

Brodie Bowie doesn’t know what happened. One minute he’s wreaking havoc and tearing up the slopes with his brothers, and the next he’s an outsider. All of them are in serious relationships. He just can't figure out why they'd put a ring on it when there’s so much fun to be had as a single man.

 

 

 

Brodie’s not the settling down type, but then he’s never met anyone like the woman who jumps in front of his bulldozer, refusing to let him dig up his meadow. The feisty chemist and perfumer is everything he never knew he wanted.

 

 

 

Except she only wants a summer fling before she goes back to her real life . . . as a princess.

 

 

 

He doesn’t fit in her world, and there’s no way she can live in his.

 

 

 

But a love like theirs doesn't play by the rules.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Less than perfect has never hurt so good. The wait is over, but the fun has just begun. With The Bad Boyfriend series, Kelly doesn't shy away from charming. She captivates with delectable characters that wrap themselves around a heart. The Bodie Brothers are clueless when it comes to romance, but all in when it comes to falling in love. From the first hello to the final goodbye, Rosalind and Brodie are a match made out of the unpredictable, but the sweetest kind of heaven. The Reluctant Boyfriend is the perfect example of why I am hooked on this series. SWOONWORTHY READ!

Norman gives women something to be proud of. Book'em Bridget is proof women are more than window dressing. Bridget is a fighter. She has the courage to speak her mind, the strength to follow her heart and the guts to push back against the bullies of the world. That spirit lands her in some sticky situations and Eli tends to be the most sticky of them all.

UNBREAK ME BY MICHELLE HAZEN

 

 

 

Release DateAugust 13, 2019

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

What could two troubled souls from different walks of life have in common? Maybe everything.

Andra Lawler lives isolated at her family’s horse ranch, imprisoned by the memories of an assault in college. When she needs help training her foals, she hires a Haitian-Creole cowboy from New Orleans with a laugh as big as the Montana sky. 

LJ Delisle can’t stand the idea that Andra might be lonely—or eating frozen TV dinners. He bakes his way into her kitchen with a lemon velvet cake, and offers her cooking lessons that set them on the road to romance. But even their love can’t escape the shadow of what they've been through. Despite their growing friendship and his gentle rapport with the horses, LJ is still an outsider facing small-town suspicions. 

Before they can work through their issues, LJ is called home by a family emergency. In the centuries-old, raggedly rebuilt streets of New Orleans, he must confront memories of Hurricane Katrina and familiar discrimination. And Andra must decide if she’s brave enough to leave the shelter of the ranch for an uncertain future with LJ.

CALL HER MINE (HARMONY POINTE; SUGAR LAKE) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

Release DateAugust 13, 2019

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Fall in love in Harmony Pointe, where hearts are lost, found, and sometimes misplaced…and everyone get a happy ever after. 

 

If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them—whether they’re looking for it or not. Here, the remaining single Dalton siblings are about to discover that they’re next in line to get swept away by love. A sweet and sexy spin-off of Melissa’s beloved Sugar Lake series.

 

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

 

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

 

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after . . . just not one either of them expects.

REVIEW: CALL HER MINE (HARMONY POINTE; SUGAR LAKE) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

Call Her Mine (Harmony Pointe, #1)Call Her Mine by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Senses collide with heart. Foster takes a dip on the sweet side with a hint of naughty. There's nothing hotter than a father who loves his child. There's nothing cuter than a baby who steals the show. It may not be love at first sight, but Ben is about to get a wake up call. It comes at the hands of a surprise bundle and a life long friend. Aurelia is on the move, just when Ben needs her most. After years of longing, will a baby finally bring these clueless hearts the happy ending they've secretly always craved? Call Her Mine is proof that sweet and simple can be a sexy combination. With humor and heart, heat kind of takes a backseat this time around.

TRULY MINE: MASON & SOPHIE (ROOMMATE DUET) BY KENNEDY FOX

 

 

  

Release Date: August 13, 2019

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you've come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

 

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. 

As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint. 

Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.

Friends. It’s all we can ever be. 

After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me. 

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches. 

And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

TRULY MINE is an angsty, slow-burn friends to lovers romance wrapped up in a tragically beautiful love story. It's book 1 in the Mason & Sophie duet and must be read first.

Standing in the shadows of love, it was only a matter of time before the heartache. Truly Mine is a trek through the dark side of love. Broken trust, shattered dreams and dangerous temptation dog Mason and Sophie. Fox creates a masquerade that swept me away. A love ballad interrupted. The bridge is set, but the crescendo is waiting to make it's prescence known.

In PROMISE OF A NEW BEGINNING... 

After having her heart broken by a country music star, Savannah Braden has sworn off men. She takes a break from her fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle for a weekend at a survivor camp to rebuild her confidence and readjust her priorities. But when she meets the handsome guide, Jack Remington, she's drawn to everything about him--from his powerful physique to his brooding stare--despite the big chip on his shoulder. Powerless to ignore the heated glances and mounting attraction, Savannah begins to reassess her hasty decision.

 

After losing his wife in a tragic accident, Jack Remington found solace in the Colorado Mountains. This solitary existence allows him to wallow in his guilt and punish himself for having made a decision that he believes cost his wife her life. He never expected to want to return to the life he once knew--but then again, he never expected to meet gorgeous, stubborn, and competitive Savannah Braden.

 

One passionate kiss is all it takes to crack the walls the two have built to protect themselves, and allow love to slip in. While Jack fights his way through his guilt, and struggles to get back into the lives of those he left behind, Savannah is there to help him heal, and together they nurture hope that they've finally found their forever loves.

 

Promise of a New Beginning is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy Love in Bloom edition, Bursting with Love, written by Melissa Foster.

ROSS (7 BRIDES FOR 7 BLACKTHORNES) BY LYNN RAYE HARRIS

 

 

Release Date: August 15, 2019

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Meet the Blackthorne men, each one as hot, fast, and smooth as the whisky that built the family fortune, and yachts and race cars that bear their name. From proud Scottish stock, Blackthornes never lose. But, one by one, the seven sexy men in this family are about to risk everything when they fall for strong and beautiful women who test their mettle in life…and love.

 

Ross Blackthorne likes his cars fast and his women faster. As the third son, he’s accustomed to living his life without the pressure to succeed that his older brothers face. But when he crashes his race car during a public event, his father decides enough is enough. It’s time for Ross to step up and join the family business.

 

Holly Brooks has her hands full running operations at the Blackthorne Distillery in Lexington, Kentucky. The last thing she needs is to babysit an unrepentant playboy who doesn’t have any interest in learning what it takes to make world-class bourbon.

Ross only intends to stay for as long as it takes to convince his father he’s better suited to driving fast—but working in close proximity to Holly is more interesting than he expected.

 

Can daredevil Ross convince good girl Holly that he’s worth the risk? Or is their budding relationship doomed to crash and burn?

THE PRINCE'S SECRET BABY BY MCKENNA JAMES

 

 

 

Release Date: August 15, 2019

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

She’s carrying a secret more precious than gold.

 

Allison

 

The Prince’s baby is kicking in my belly, but as much as I love the man, I don’t dare let him know.

When I met the Crown Prince Sebastian, he swept me off my feet with his irresistible charm and gorgeous green eyes. Not to mention those broad, sexy shoulders that would one day carry the needs of an entire country upon them.

But a powerful enemy of the crown conspires to keep us apart, and to ensure the prince’s reputation, I’m forced to abandon the only man I’ve ever loved.

When I look into my baby’s eyes, I see his father, and I can’t help but fall in love with the man all over again.

 

Sebastian

 

As soon as she won our first verbal sparring match, I knew Allison was the woman for me.

Being a Prince, it was rare for someone to stand up to me. But Allison was different. She was strong and intelligent as she was beautiful, I knew I had to make her mine.

We were so happy, but now that she’s disappeared, I’ll use all my resources to find her and bring her back where she belongs.

REVIEWTHE PRINCE'S SECRET BABY BY MCKENNA JAMES

 

 

The Prince's BabyThe Prince's Baby by McKenna James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


James takes hearts back in time to the beginning of a modern dynasty. Before there was Andrew and Eliza or Edward and Maggie, there was a fiery, no nonsense diplomat and a frustratingly, sexy Prince. The Prince's Baby is Alison and Sebastian's unconventional, yet unforgettable journey to royal infamy. What began as a battle of wills, becomes a scandal of epic proportions. Love was never on the agenda but fate had other plans. I love these stories dearly, but I adore Alison and Sebastian for laying the groundwork that started my love affair with this family. McKenna James is a master at crafting fairytale magic with modern day twists.

REVIEW: THE CONTRACT BY MELANIE MORELAND
 
The Contract (The Contract, #1)The Contract by Melanie Moreland

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Thank you Melanie Moreland for appealing to the poet in my soul. Using beautiful words and emotional moments, The Contract reminds us to appreciate life's greatest moments and make them count. What stood out most for me was this piece of dialogue: " When you get older ... you realize life is made up of moments. All sorts of them. Sad ones, good ones, and great ones. They make up the tapestry that is your life. Hold on to all of them—especially the great ones. They make the others easy to take." That piece of wisdom gave me goosebumps that have yet to disappear. Richard, Katy and Penny are haunting characters in the most breathtaking of stories. My one regret is that I am just discovering this immensely talented author. Melanie Moreland made this moment count. What an impact it made.

About ALWAYS WITH YOU

 

Available September 10th

 

 

Ruling his LA hotel empire through determination and hard work, Reid Davenport is a mystery to many. Despite the media’s interest in him, Reid steers clear of the limelight--until his life is broadcast in the tabloids, endangering not only his privacy, but that of his parents and his little sister.

 

 

 

He’d do anything to protect them…except listen to the fiery and intelligent PR pro, who's as beautiful as she is tempting. Every time she walks into his office, he fantasizes about bending her over his desk and kissing her. Every time she smiles at him, he wants to pull her closer and not let go.

 

 

 

Hailey Connor doesn’t take on uncooperative clients. But the second she meets Reid, she’s compelled to stay and help, even if she must fight his own broody ass to do it. He’s bossy, demanding and so sinfully alluring that she knows she's in over her head. Reid may be infuriating, but when he talks about his family, she can’t help but melt a little.

 

 

 

With every kiss, they grow closer. With every touch, they fall deeper. They’re opposites…yet perfect matches. But when their different worlds collide, will it tear them apart or bring them together?

It’s love. Trust me.

 

After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.

 

Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world -- just one -- and his name is Zachariah Prince.

In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.

She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.

It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.

But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.

Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


From the first heartache until the last tear falls Paige and her Prince are a sight to behold. Bad Boy Blues is a tale of glass houses and shadowed hearts. Kent delves into a world where the good life hides ugly truths. Trapped in a world where almost is never good enough, less than becomes the saving grace for a couple of wounded souls searching for their chance to heal. Bad Boy Blues proves that there is no perfect life, only courageous survivors. What a magnificent read.

He took everything from me.

My friends.

My family.

My freedom.

I planned to get it all back.

I didn't need any distractions.

Yet there she was anyway...


Sera

He took the only thing that mattered to me.

I would do just about anything to get it back.

Even if that meant relying on some outlaw biker fresh

out of prison with slim to no hope of succeeding in

his plan. 

It was supposed to be a simple arrangement.

Quid pro quo.

Just business.

Nothing personal. 

But there was no denying it, things were quickly 

getting very personal…
