Release Blitz: Accidental Attachment by Max Monroe


Title: Accidental Attachment
Author: Max Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy (stand alone)
Release Date: April 30, 2023
Cover Design: Peter Alderweireld

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Jeeves Reads Romance - “A slow-burning treat, this exceedingly low angst romance is easily one of my new favorites from this writing duo.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Goodreads Review - “This book is full of Max Monroe Hallmarks. Witty banter. Lots of laughs. Tons of self deprecating - in the cutest way - inner monologue.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Catbythesea Reads - “I’ve never read anything quite as amazing as this book, it made me sad, filled with laughter and joy all at the same time.”

A successful writer accidentally sends her new (and super-dreamy) editor the wrong manuscript. Instead of the full-length paranormal novel she promised Longstrand Publishing, she sends the fan fiction she’s written about her crush…on him—including every detail of the hot, steamy “physical activity” she’s fantasized about happening between them.

And Chase Dawson may be the hottest man alive and a super-talented editor to boot, but he’s completely oblivious that he’s the star of the manuscript he just convinced his boss to green-light.

Brooke Baker has been through a lot in her thirty-one years of life.

A divorce.
A career change.
A move to New York City from “small-town” Ohio.
Not to mention, she has a bit of a medical condition that involves occasional fainting spells, mild embarrassment, and the companionship of her adorable service dog and canine sidekick, Benji.

But none of it has prepared her for this.

None of it prepared her for Chase Dawson.

Strong jaw, blue eyes, cut muscles, and a perfect swoop of superhero-worthy black hair, Chase’s features are those of a book boyfriend and then some. Obviously, Brooke would know—she literally filled an entire manuscript with it.

A manuscript no one was ever supposed to see.

Will she survive two months of revising and editing the sizzling romance she imagined with Chase in extremely close quarters with him? Or will the constant white lies and overwhelming attraction make her spontaneously combust?

Release Tour: Shattered by Dreams by Tara Conrad


 ★✩★ New Release Tour ★✩★

Shattered Dreams

Fire and Ice Book 6


Hosted by DS Book Promotions

99c Limited Time Only!


US | UK | CA | AU


Running seems to be the theme of my life. I ran the day my sister was abducted. I ran from the pressure of living up to her memory. I ran from being told I was wanted. I ran from everything. I continued running straight into the arms of a sexy and confident Dominant who saw my broken pieces and offered me a place to heal and grow in my submission. 

I was given a glimpse of a future I never dreamed possible, and I thought my days of running were behind me. But just as quickly as they came, my hopes and dreams shattered at my feet. While everyone around me celebrated, I suffered in silence. I was left with a single heartbeat frozen in time. Once again, I heard a familiar voice telling me to run. 

Without an explanation, I left everything behind to try to outrun the suffocating pain. But I’m so tired of running. Will I have the strength to face him, and what will happen when he finds out what I’ve been hiding?

If you’re already a Fire and Ice fan, Brandon and Lana’s story is one you’ve been begging for. If you’re a newcomer, grab a copy of Shattered Dreams and start reading the sizzling series you won’t be able to put down.

Reading Now: Beyond the Thistles by Samantha Young

 What are you reading now?

I am reading Beyond the Thistles by Samantha Young.  This is an ARC I was given for a honest opinion.  I started this e-book 2 days ago & I am starting chapter 15.  I had a migraine last night and could not read like I wanted to.  When I sit down to read this more, I will be on my ipad.

A little bit about this book: 

1. It is book #1 of the Highlands Series.

2. There are 3 books listed on Goodreads & Amazon.

3. A single mom on the run.

4. A Scottish bodyguard (do I need to say anything else?)

5. A must read

6. Read this description from Goodreads:

It’s been a long time since Walker Ironside left behind Scotland and the memories that haunt him. Yet after years of traveling the world as a bodyguard, Walker misses his homeland enough to return. To a village in the Scottish Highlands that plays host to an exclusive members-only club, Ardnoch Estate. If not happy, Walker is content working with the elite security at the club and maintaining his bachelor lifestyle. What he doesn’t need is distraction in the form of the enticing but too-young newcomer, single mother Sloane Harrow.

Sloane never imagined she’d get pregnant at sixteen. Or that a decade later she’d escape from California with her daughter, Callie, to start over in the Scottish Highlands. Hidden and safe from Callie’s dangerous father, Sloane is satisfied with their new lives. Her daughter is happy. Sloane has a stable job, a quaint cottage, a passion for baking that might just be turning into a business, and a huge crush on brooding security guard Walker Ironside. Unfortunately, the grumpy Scot seems immune to Sloane’s charm, but she can’t help but try to seduce him with cupcakes and baked treats whenever the opportunity arises.

However, when someone arrives in Ardnoch intent on destroying Sloane’s life, Walker is the first to step forward to protect her and Callie. Even if it means giving into temptation and awakening his own demons. Because in doing so, Walker faces failing not only to shield Sloane from her past, but to safeguard her against his own.

Did you read that description?  I sent the Amazon link to a friend last night & she preordered it!  I can not wait until I can sit down and read.  There are 44 chapter.  I will probably be in the 30s by tomorrow morning.

Happy Reading!

Book Blitz: Grimm Prince by NS Johnson


Title: Grimm Prince
Series: Grimm's Valley Romances #1
Author: NS Johnson
Genre: Contemporary 
Tropes: Grumpy/Sunshine, Instalove, Opposites Attract
Release Date: March 28, 2023


When a Wounded Warrior meets a small town princess, he'll learn that happily-ever-after is definitely in his cards.

Jake Grimm came home after fifteen years to an official letter on his door. His family's ancestral home is going to be a fairytale themed tourist attraction which isn't going to work when the rest of his Special Forces team shows up to move in. Storming up to City Hall for some answers, a car backfires and he hits the ground, bringing down the hot, curvy woman standing next to him.

She looks up at him with stars in her eyes, like he isn't battle damaged.

Her heart shaped mouth whispers dreams that she could take all his pain and sleepless nights away.

All of which is why Jake knows he must stay far away from Rosie Briarwood, the mayor's daughter. He might be the last descendant of the founders of Grimm's Valley, but he's no prince. And he's no longer a hero.

Once upon a time has never been so hot in this steamy small town where heroes fall hard for modern day damsels who know how to handle their swords.

NS Johnson is a pen name for paranormal and contemporary fantasy author Ines Johnson. Yes, her first and middle initials are actually N and S -clever, right!

Why separate the ink? Because while Ines imbues magic and fantasy into her stories, NS will only spin reimagined fairytales, folklore and myths in the small town of Grimm’s Valley.

Release Blitz: Unholy Soul by Andi Rhodes & Lacy Rose


Title: Unholy Soul
Series: Saints Purgatory MC #1
Authors: Andi Rhodes & Lacy Rose
Genre: MC Romance
Trope: Sister's Friend
Release Date: April 28, 2023


There isn’t a person in the world who hasn’t committed a sin. Some sins are worse than others, but seven of them are deadly. But those seven worst of the worst? They’re what drive Saints Purgatory MC to keep fighting.


What is a person supposed to do when they learn the world is a breeding ground for evil? As the president of Saints Purgatory MC, it’s my job to lead my brothers in the war against the wicked. Not only do we find transgressors in our day-to-day lives, but my twin sister regularly brings us the names of sinners.

In my world, love doesn’t exist. At least not the healthy kind. But when we’re charged with eliminating a doctor with a tendency for sloth, everything changes. His patient barrels her way into my life and my heart, and I will stop at nothing to ensure she’s mine. Even if that means letting her see the darkest parts of my soul.

It’s not lost on me that to do what we do, we must become the very thing we despise. Hell, it’s our club motto: See evil, hear evil, become evil, purge evil.


I love my life. I’m a business owner, a daughter, and a friend. But two words are all it takes to send me spiraling into chaos. Obstacles are continually hurled at me from every direction. My world is ripped apart and it takes everything I have not to lose my mind.

After the latest middle finger life flips me, fate steps in and offers me a lifeline. Too bad it’s in the form of a dominating, possessive, sexy as sin man. I’ve always considered myself to be independent, but just this once, I want to give in and let him take care of me.

Retribution is the man’s promise, but can he deliver? Can I trust a stranger to help me when there’s more at stake than revenge? Or will my heart suffer the consequences?

Welcome to Saints Purgatory, where sinners take out the sinful.

Release Blitz: Broken Dove by C. Lymari


Broken Dove by C. Lymari is now live!

Welcome To The House Of Silence

I lived my life with darkness all around me. 
Everywhere I went, I needed constant guidance. 

I listened. 
And obeyed. 

I learned to dance so I could be freed from my gilded cage.
A dove who could not find its way home. 

Then one day, I met Luke. 

He made me feel happy—safe. Mending my wings so I could soar once again. 
All the while biding his time to rip me to shreds. 

Because, at one time, I belonged to La Casa Del Silenzio. 
If their whores weren't blind, they were mute. 

Too bad for everyone, I could still speak the truth. 

With him at my side, I could conquer my past. 

But I don't think either of us expected my wings to finally snap...
