If at any time an author can bring out emotions in a reader, they are a success. If they can draw in a reader to feel engaged in the journey of their new book friends, they earn more respect. If an author can leave a reader feeling intrigued, inspired, and even offer healing, they’ve gained a bibliophile fanatic for life. - Shani K. - The Chronicles of an Abibliophobiac.

New Release: "Sin and Cider" by K. Reese




Sin and Cider by K. Reese


Genre: Contemporary Romance


Cover Designer: Lee Ching of Under Cover Designs


Release Date: May 30, 2017






Synopsis

MacIntosh 

Feeling discontent in the big city and hoping to find what’s missing in her life, MacIntosh Layne decides to go back to her roots. Ready for a refresh, she heads home to her family’s orchard in Tennessee for the summer. What she doesn't count on rediscovering is her attraction to her brother’s charming best friend, Lawson Westbrook. The main star in her dreams growing up, he’s the perfect blend of Southern gentleman and sex in a flannel—rugged, successful, and more handsome than ever. 

Lawson 

Lawson can’t believe Mac Layne is all grown up. No longer the gangly teen who went away to college, she’s all woman now and he’s eager to get reacquainted on a carnal level. As they continue to cross paths and their mutual attraction intensifies, he makes an enticing proposal. 

A Choice Must be Made 

Will Mac give in to the sinful temptation of the temporary arrangement Law is offering? Or will they find something sweeter than the cider they’ve been brewing together? 





Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 by K. Reese
Sin and Cider

Shaking the lust from my mind, I decide to turn my focus to the inside of the barn now that I’ve finished the thankless task of clearing out weeds. I had pulled out some of the rubbish inside already but still have a lot of work to do. I pull one of the doors to the side, the gentle creaking sound washing over me in a wave of nostalgia. I make my way inside and step over dried leaves and debris, each step kicking up a layer of dust. I look ahead and broken slats of wood are on the ground; those must be part of the original roof that was destroyed. I survey the space and take in the old tanks where we used to make cider and the empty jugs, some whole and some broken, lining the walls on shelves covered in cobwebs. When I was a kid this barn was spotless and welcoming, the perfect place to make cider and welcome visitors. Now it looks like an old photograph and not the treasured memory it really is. I take a deep breath and the smells of dust and mold fill my nose instead of crisp apples and warm spices. It’s in this moment I make a promise to myself: I’m going to restore this barn to its former glory.

I pick my way across the worn and dirty hardwood and undo the latch on one of the windows. As soon as it swings open the sweet smell of flowers permeates the air and rays of sunshine filter in, the shafts of light instantly brightening up the room. I open the window on the other side and feel excited about the task at hand. This barn is a dirty penny and just needs to shine again.

Excerpt:
"I'm making you strong."
I sniffed and turned my back on him. Fury, sadness, isolation all coursed through my body. "I'm already strong!" I screamed and fell to the floor, completely exhausted.
Several minutes had passed, and I felt so alone. I opened my eyes and saw His knees before me. "True, Ysabelle," I felt his warm hand tilt my chin up so I could meet his eyes, "But now I'm making you unbreakable," he whispered, like he was finally letting me in on the reason why I’m so damn special to this world.

Veronica Hayes can't stand a liar, especially one who gets away with it. There is only one man in her life that she knows will never let her down, and it sure isn't her daddy.

Cover Reveal: Chance Encounter by SJ McCoy

Chance Encounter

A Chance and a Hope, Book One by SJ McCoy Genre: Contemporary Romance, Western Romance Cover Design: Dana Leah @ Designs by Dana Cover Model: Andrew James Photographer: Golden Czermak FuriousFotog Publication Date: May 16, 2017
Chance knew love once—a long time ago. She died when they were eighteen and the best of him died with her. Since then his work on a ranch in Montana has allowed him to keep his distance from people and from happiness. Eighteen years later, he may be ready to start living again—maybe. He’s watched all his friends find love and embark on the next stage of their lives. Part of him would like to do the same; part of him would rather cling to the past. He’s hoping that a trip to the Oregon Coast, and a couple of weeks away from his normal life, might help him figure out how he can move forward and maybe even be happy. It’s taken him eighteen years to get this point, but a chance encounter on the beach will make him want to figure it all out in just two weeks. He’s come a long way, but can he really open his heart up to happiness—and to Hope? Chance Encounter is the first of three books in A Chance and a Hope Series. These are not standalone reads. In fact, when you get to the end of this story, you may be faced with a cliffhanger – or you may not. The choice is yours! What do I mean? Well, when you reach the end of Chapter Twenty you’ll be left with a warm and fuzzy Happy-For-Now. Then you’ll be faced with a choice – read on, all the way up to the edge of a cliff where I’ll leave you hanging, or stop right where you are and wait for Book Two to come out on June 13 and read Chapter Twenty-One then. If you love a cliffy, you can have one. If you detest a cliffy, you don’t have to deal with it! Also, if you’d rather wait until the entire trilogy is complete you’ll only have a couple of months to wait. Book Two: Finding Hope releases June 13 Book Three: Give Hope a Chance releases July 11

About SJ McCoy

Hi, I’m SJ, a coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee. I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non-fiction for many years. My life changed completely a few of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape. I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write. These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)

New Release!! Luporum Cubilia by Carrie Hogle



Luporum Cubilia (Book 1 of new series)
Carrie Hogle
Romance, Drama & Suspense



You never know when a single moment will change your life forever. For good or bad; fate sweeps in unexpected, like a gentle rain or a raging storm, leaving you eternally changed. A glance across a crowded room, a first kiss that leads to an endless love...

Some changes are instant; you step off the curb and are struck by a car. Some moments disguise themselves; hide beneath the surface, simmer in the darkness, lurk behind the scenes. You live your destiny, follow your heart, embrace your life...one moment you're basking in the sun only to be left in darkness, surrounded by wolves, fighting to survive. One moment can change everything, bring your world crashing to your feet, and sometimes you don't realize that moment has passed until it's too late.




*Warning: If you have read the Willing Surrender Trilogy, this series is darker, gritty, raw & highly emotional.
If you have not read the Willing Surrender Trilogy, this series is written as a standalone...but, if you would like the full relationship history & character evolution, give it a try. (Link Below)
