BLURB:
A Fae forged weapon. Mysterious Murders. And a run-in with my ex-husband and his new wife. Seems as if Fate has it in for me.

When I get a call about the mysterious deaths of two paranormals, I’m pulled back to the last place I ever want to be: the city I fled after my nasty divorce. The magical world depends on me to solve its problems, and this one time, I truly resent it. Of course, my arrival couldn’t go unnoticed and now I’m facing a lawsuit for alimony while the lives of those I love the most are on the line.

The evil behind Myrna’s previous treachery resurfaces, making me question everything. Nothing is as it seems, though. I certainly didn’t expect to find myself on a mission to prove my ex-husband’s new wife is not a murderer.

Joined by a flamboyant baker, a talented dwarf, and some very fierce pixies, I’m prepared for battle. But I’d be lying if I said I felt confident. Too many important things are now on the chopping block and for the first time since getting my magic from Hattie, I’m afraid of failing everyone who is relying on me.

Macon

They say time heals all wounds. But no amount of time is enough to recover from this. So, I simply exist. Eat. Work. Sleep. Repeat. Most people consider it pitiful, but they haven’t experienced such a massive tragedy. It’s all I can manage.

Until her. The young, single mom hired to be my new assistant. With knowing eyes, luscious lips, and a hellfire attitude, she challenges me in a way I find all too attractive. I’m shaken both in mind and body.

Suddenly, life is more complicated. And I don’t like it at all. Until I do.

I never wanted a second chance at love. But sometimes fate has other plans.

Julie

They say time heals all wounds. But the emotional trauma I suffered at the hands of a man I thought I loved was difficult to mend. So, I took my daughter and started a new life.

Working full-time for an irritable, ill-tempered boss is nearly all I can manage. But he challenges me in ways I find all too attractive. Now, my mind and body are warring over the man I’m beginning to understand more than I ever wanted to.

Suddenly, life has taken a turn I’m not sure I want it to take. And I’m trying not to like it. Until I do.

I’d always hoped for a second chance at love. Maybe fate is on my side this time.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Fall in love with a soldier, a nurse, and a small-town adventure brimming with delightful characters, amusing animals, and abiding hope.

Twenty-one steps. The past two years of Bridger Holt’s life have centered on the twenty-one steps he repeatedly walks back and forth as one of the sentinels guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Guilt from his past and trepidation about his unknown future drive him to the mountain cabin he inherited from his beloved uncle to gain clarity and direction.

Outgoing, upbeat Shayla Reeves spreads sunshine wherever she goes. Holiday has become her home, and she enjoys spending time in the mountains around town. She adores the patients in the dementia facility where she works as a nurse. But something is missing from her mostly joyful world. When she mistakenly camps on private land owned by the mysterious and brooding Bridger Holt, she realizes what her life is lacking isn’t adventure but love.

Will two opposite personalities overcome their challenges and figure out a way to build a future together?

Find out in this sweet love story full of hope, small-town humor, and the wonder of falling in love.

The Redo by Max Monroe

Title: The Redo
Author: Max Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 17, 2022
Cover Photographer: Wander Aguiar Photography
Cover Model: Andrew Biernat



Put a finger down if you’ve ever been a single woman who got stuck in a New York City elevator in the middle of a summer blackout with your former high school sweetheart—whom you haven’t seen in years—while pregnant with a baby that isn’t biologically yours. And you can’t believe how handsome that blast from your past is, so you unwittingly flirt with him a little even though your life is so crazy complicated you’re barely keeping your head above water, but everything about him makes you think you could totally still be in love with him.

*puts a finger down*

What? Just me?

Needless to say, my current status is thorny. And no, I didn’t miss how close that word is to another one.

Even though he’s the epitome of tall, dark, and incredibly handsome, Remington Winslow has been a single bachelor for most of his life. It’s clichéd and basic—until you consider the fact that once upon a terrible time, he got left at the altar.

He doesn’t do relationships. He definitely doesn’t fall in love.

And I’m just trying to survive a tangled web of unexpected motherhood and running one of the top real estate firms in the city that never sleeps.

He’s the jaded guy who doesn’t want to settle down, and I’m the career-focused woman with more baggage than a 747 can hold.

We’re just two friends who used to be in love.

Now, if someone would tell my hormones I’m not a teenager anymore, I’d be set.









Many moons ago, a dynamic duo of romance authors teamed up under the pseudonym Max Monroe, and, well, the rest is history…

Bound Magic (Fae Forest #1)Bound Magic by Juniper Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was edge of the seat nail biting. We see Teryna escape the abuse she has been living for years. Along the way she meets things that are mystery to her and on her journey will she find that answers. I do make a note that this book ends on cliffhanger that makes me look for that book 2 quick

Everything We Never Knew by Elizabeth Wilder

Title: Everything We Never Knew
Author: Elizabeth Wilder
Genre: Women’s Fiction/Small Town/Suspenseful Fiction
Release Date: August 23, 2022
Cover Design: The Cover Collection



A motherless child. His grieving father. The cemetery where catastrophe comes calling once more…

His mother’s death left ten-year-old Nat with too many questions that have no answers — until he discovers her journal.

With the help of his new friend, Dee, Nat dodges his cemetery caretaker father and dives into the journal only to find himself facing an assault of hard truths about his mother’s mental health that threaten to break him.

When Nat’s world existence shatters into explosive grief, will it bring him and his father together, or will it only cause new wounds that are all the harder to heal — with Dee caught in the crossfire?

Everything We Never Knew is a suspenseful, heartfelt, and lyrically written story about grief, perfectly imperfect friendship and family, and the complications that can rise from a woman secretly struggling with mental illness, alone.

Content warning: eating disorders, miscarriage/babyloss

Synopsis

The names have been changed to protect the innocent. Though, as you’ll see, none of us were innocent.

I was an online junkie. But, my antics didn’t stay in the chat rooms. I was part of an online community that went rogue, real world, known by your face and not just your handle.

I’d like to say this is the first of a few encounters I was involved in. That would be a lie. From the motorcycle riding cutie with bad timing to the unexpected rock band manager—you’ll meet them all.

My goal was to have fun. I lived for the excitement and adventure. It was all my journey that lead me to where I belong.

This is where my confessions begin…

Excerpt

When we got back to his loft, I ran for his bathroom and turned on the faucet. I found the right temperature and added bubbles. I placed candles around the room and lit them, and I mean I used the whole box of twelve. The room was lit up romantically. I stripped quickly and tied my hair up in a knot. I leaned in his bathroom doorway naked and gazed at him with intent, “Can you start some music in the bathroom and join me?” I catch myself biting my lower lip.

“I’ll be right in.”

I carefully slid into the deep tub and sank down into the bubbles. The music came on and Martin joined me in his bathroom. “You can’t wear clothes in the tub.” He laughed under his breath while he stripped and grabbed the condoms from his bedroom. “Will you put one of those on before you get in the tub, please?” He glared at me funny and did as I asked. I pulled my knees up to my chest, making room for him to get into the tub and watched him get settled in the warm water.

“The problem with this is that you’re way over there. I can’t kiss you from here.”

“I was just waiting for you to get in the tub.” I said as I move to his end, straddling him and kissing him while I make sure the condom stayed on. I hold it in place and slide down onto his hard cock, that’s getting harder as I take control. Once I’ve taken him all the way, I grind against him and kiss him. This is what I wanted. I don’t understand why certain things do it for me. Something about this man being in control of so many things and leading the life he does. Aware that he’s tired of industry people and trusts me to be in his life. He’s sensual and real, and he needs the same thing. He deserves to be wanted. I move on him slowly while I suck and nibble at his lips. My hands in his hair until my arms get cool and then I explore his chest. His hands unable to decide if they want to splay across my back and hold me to him or rest on my hips. I keep it slow—this is about the long make out session, and having him hard inside me simply makes it better.

“You’re beautiful, Kate. I’ve never been with a woman like this. You’re real and you want me, maybe as much as I want you.” He stopped and searched my eyes. I could read the thoughts in his head and I didn’t want to hear them. I’m not prepared to go there, but I do want him and there’s obviously something else between us whether I wanted to admit it or not. I answer him with my body, moving on him faster and squeezing him inside me while I kiss him passionately—essentially taking his words away. He responded with his hands on me. One holding the back of my head so he could devour me with his kiss and the other circling my clit perfectly and in time with my hips grinding against him. He pulled his feet back underneath him and I wrap my legs around him as he took control and leaned me back to my end of the tub, needing to be in control. He pushed into me over and over, harder and harder. The water moving around us like a tidal wave with every stroke. Martin claims me completely, moving his mouth to my neck and sucking gently. My breasts floating draw his attention and he takes my nipple in his teeth, sucking it into his mouth and sending me over the edge in pleasure out of nowhere.

“Martin!” I have a hard time breathing and I’m cumming hard around him.

“Oh fuck! You feel like… oh fuck, Kate.” He grabbed me and held me tight to him. “Be mine, beautiful.” Then quieter, “I never do this. I think I’m falling for you, Kate.”

I pretend I didn’t hear him and I’m lost in the sex, simply grasping for him while we come down. I want to tell him it’s just sex, but his face tells me that it’s more. He’s lost. He’s needed someone like me in his life. He needs real balance and I’m that for him. He’s had too much of the fake industry people and babysitting adults that should be able to take care of themselves, but then I guess they wouldn’t need a manager would they. I’m real. I don’t fit in with those industry people, but I can get along with almost anyone and I’m intelligent enough to handle conversation. When I think about it, I’m what he needs. Is he what I need? I don’t need anybody. I prefer to be self-sufficient and independent, but sometimes the L word creeps into my head or maybe an off the charts sexual connection and I think it might not be bad to be in a couple. Risking my heart isn’t an option. It hasn’t had time to heal. I’m lost and should pump the brakes. I need it to be real before I go there and Martin is too close to an unreal world for me to take that chance so quickly. Okay, so maybe my heart is leaning that way, but I can fight it. Right?
