Happy Release Day Amanda Kelley!
Worth Letting Go, the third book (can be read as a standalone) in Amanda's Worth series is now live!  Check it out below and make sure to grab your copy today!  




Book Description: 

Harper Davenport is widowed, homeless, and nearly broken. So, in a moment of bravery—or possibly stupidity—she moves her and her six-year-old son, Greyson, back to the only place that has ever felt like home. Too bad starting over is exactly as hard as she feared it would be. The last thing she needs is for Kade Dawson to be her new boss. The man is talented, handsome, and ridiculously magnetic. He draws people in with his looks and hooks them with his personality. Harper is no exception, but she has more than herself to consider. Kade’s reputation is well earned, but lately, he’s been craving something more. As soon as Harper walks into his life, he’s captivated. Only…things are complicated. Despite his desperate attempts to keep things platonic between them, Harper still manages to become the best part of his day. He just doesn’t know if he can be the man she and Greyson deserve. Sometimes, falling back into old patterns is easier than taking a chance on something he knows will change everything. If Kade and Harper can manage to let go of the past, they might just be able to have a future they’ve both only ever dreamed of.

Book Description:

Thrown together on the set of a failing TV show, Alina and Markus must navigate the spotlight together as a couple or risk cancellation. Rebuild. That’s Markus’ plan after a disastrous role and explosive public breakup with the girl he thought was The One. The bit part he originally agreed to take on after losing a bet now seems like his last opportunity to pull his career back from the brink. When he walks onto the set, he finds a TV show on the verge of cancellation and the paparazzi circling like vultures watching for what—or who—he’ll try to do next. When Markus is introduced to the director’s muse and the show’s on-location assistant producer, Alina, sparks start to fly and the two strike up a tentative friendship among the lights and cameras of the gossipy set. The ambitious and hard-working Alina has zero interest in getting sucked into Markus’ celebrity gossip drama, but she may not have a choice as one disaster after another befalls the set. A chance screen test and some serious groveling by the show’s director leads to Markus and Alina taking on major roles in a desperate attempt to save the show from network cancellation. Now in front of the camera, Markus and Alina are bound together as love interests and the line between private and public starts to blur. As life begins to imitate art, Markus and Alina get ground to dust by the celeb gossip mill seeking the ‘real’ story behind the two of them. If they can come back from this and save the show, they’ll be the next Hollywood power couple.

Broken Shadows!

GoodReads ~ Amazon ~ AmazonUK ~ AmazonCA ~ AmazonAU

 

Book Description:

He was the best; a champion; my father.

I’ve spent my entire life living in his shadow, and it’s slowly killing me. I need to escape. To live in the light that I so rightly deserve. To show the world that I’m the best in my own right, a champion, and not just my father’s shadow. Sometimes finding your own way and being the best comes at a cost. I wasn’t prepared to pay the price to live in the light, to be the best. Now I’m learning that being the best doesn’t always mean being the champ. Sometimes it means simply becoming a better man.

Excerpt:


What are you doing here?” I gasped.
“It’s good to see you too, E.” She tipped her head to the side with an annoyed look that she always gave me when we were kids.
“No, really. What are you doing here?” I mumbled as we began walking outside. I hadn’t seen my sister in almost a year. Last Christmas, I think.
“Mom called me. You’ve made the news. I flew out last night. I’ve only been here a few hours.” She was waving her hands around as she led me down to what had to be a rental car.
“And you came alone?” I looked around. I hadn’t seen my brother-in-law or my niece.
“Caleb stayed home with Natalie. It wasn’t going to take all of us to bail you out.” She sounded annoyed and tired. “What’s going on with you, E? I mean, you’ve always been stubborn and bullheaded, but I thought you were going places when you started fighting on the circuit.” She climbed in the car as she shook her head at me.
“I don’t need to hear it from you right now,” I muttered. “I need to get my car.”
“I’m taking you home right now. You need to shower. I’m staying here the next few days, and then you’re coming home with me.” She glared at me.
“No, I’m not.” I jerked away from her.
“You’re gonna lose your sponsors. How do you plan to fight without sponsors? Your money is going to dry up, and then what? Street fight? Your artwork alone probably cost at least a grand.” She nodded to my full sleeve. “For someone who doesn’t want to be like Dad, you sure look a lot like him.”
“I have commitments here,” I tried again.
“From what I understand, you got kicked out of the gym. I heard your trainer dumped you.” She turned into my apartment complex. I have no idea how she knew where I lived.
“Get your shit, then we’re getting your car. You may be bigger than me, but Dad trained me too and I’m older.” She pointed at the stairs that led up to my apartment.
My sister meant business, and I knew from growing up with her, that she had no problem playing mother to me. We were eleven years apart, and now that she had her own family, she was even more of a mom.
“Let’s go. I don’t have time for this.” She pushed my shoulder.
“I’m going, I’m going,” I whined. It was the first time in a long time that I felt lost. I felt so lost right now, that I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want to ask for help, and I certainly didn’t want help from the people who always promised to give it…my family.

Author: A.B. Wilson
Publication Date:  10 August 2021
Publisher: Totally Bound Publishing 
Series: Shellenberg Brothers
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Age Recommendation: 17 and Up
Rating: 4 Stars

Book Description:

Fleeing a flaming dumpster fire of a life in Chicago, ALINA FERROUS moves to Los Angeles to accept a half-assed job offer from the diabolical director of the struggling TV show, Southern Gods. Her official title on the show is assistant producer, but she’s also the director’s widely proclaimed muse. A sexist designation, if ever one existed. It’s been a hard slog, but she finally feels like she’s on track to achieving her filmmaking dream—until she catches the eye of a certain, well-known guest star. While Alina is holding on tightly to her hard-won career, MARKUS SHELLENBERG is in total free fall. After losing a bet with the director of the show, he is forced to take on a small role in Southern Gods. Functional most days, but sinking fast, Markus struggles to overcome creative exhaustion and anxiety exacerbated by his grueling schedule and the painful demise of an eight year relationship. Almost immediately upon arriving on set, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Alina that shocks him with its relative ease and candor. Unfortunately, Alina and Markus’s friendship and impossible-to-hide chemistry doesn’t go unnoticed by the show’s director. In a last ditch effort to save the show, he casts them in leading roles as love interests for the next season. As Markus and Alina prepare to take on new roles, their friendship evolves into something more and the line between reality and the show begins to blur. Before long, a tip from a gossipy co-worker prematurely outs them to the media and they’re forced to take their tentative relationship into the glaring, public spotlight. Markus and Alina play along at first, but the stress of celeb life and being the saviors of the show ratchets up and it becomes heartbreakingly obvious how little they know and trust each other away from the isolated set. When a popular tabloid releases a vicious article depicting Alina as a gold-digging homewrecker, the hastily-built foundation of their relationship disintegrates completely beneath the weight of the narrative’s lies and accusations. With the help of friends and Markus’s irrepressible youngest brother, Ali na and Markus set out to reclaim their narrative from the gossip hounds. Together, the two are able to sift through the wreckage of their previous relationship and rebuild on a foundation of honesty and trust rather than raw chemistry and need.



The Role Playlist!

    


Review:

The Role is A.B. Wilson's debut novel and the start to her Shellenberg Brothers series.  This contemporary romance starts off with some electric and instant attraction but quickly slows its pace to give us more time to get used to Markus and Alina as a couple as well as all they have to endure in the world of Hollywood and all it's good and bad sides.  Can Alina accept Markus as the leading heartthrob that he is and all that comes with it?  Can Markus learn to trust himself and Alina aftger a bad breakup and the frustrations that come with being a leading man in Hollywood whose luck may be runningafter out?  I'd have loved a little more backstory to set us up for all that was to come, but enjoyed the story even without that and loved the introduction of the different characters and I know who I am rooting for in book 2, but for you to learn that you should pick up The Role!!!  





   

Excerpt:


Her face had gone completely still, and only the motion of her throat as she swallowed hard gave the smallest hint that my words had affected her.

She brushed her fingers through my hair and tugged a little so I would look up and meet her eyes. “Markus, I feel pretty much the same about you. This whole thing with us is confusing and scary. I don’t fuck around with actors—especially ones on my set. I’m worried that you could ruin me completely.”

Her hands were lying folded in her lap and I reached out and clasped one of them, my thumb brushing slowly over her knuckles. All the thoughts of what to do next were whirring through my brain until they settled like a slot machine on a hopefully winning combination.


“Alina, can we try something?”

She looked at me like I was a potentially venomous snake. “What?”

“Can I kiss you?”

She pulled me up and led me out into the empty hallway outside the private lounge where she pressed me up against the wall, and pulled me down to her for a soft kiss. The barely there press of her lips rocked me to my core.

“And now?” she asked softly as she settled back to her heels.

I caught my breath slowly and let it back out. “Now I ask if you felt something there too. Because I did—even though that was the kind of bullshit kiss you give your grandma. I don’t know what to do with it all, but I want more with you. More than being your friend. Can we try this dating thing? See where it goes?”

Her eyes darted back and forth. “‘See where things go’? Yeah, I don’t know—casual isn’t my usual mode.”

We kept up our staring contest until she clapped a hand over her eyes and groaned. “Ugh, fine, yes, I felt that same thing too. I do every time we’re near each other.”

I reached out for her hand and twined her fingers in mine. We both looked down at our joined hands.

“It’s a lot, yeah? Can we, though? Try?” I tugged her closer and she leaned into me, sighing as I kissed the top of her head.

She stepped back abruptly and poked me in the chest. “I want one more apology. You’re such a fucking tease.”

“Me? Yeah, probably, I’m sorry.” Her glare was accusatory, but I swear there was a slight twinkle in her eyes as I grinned at her. “But you know you still want me, and besides, it takes one to know one.”

She pulled back and looked up at me as she cupped my jaw in her hands. I wasn’t quite sure what she saw in my eyes as she stared at me, searching for the truth behind my words. Finally she nodded to herself and stepped back so only my fingertips dragged across her forearms. “All right, Markus. You’re on. We can ‘try’.”

TRAVIS by Mis Sheridan - Cover Reveal




I am so excited to help share the cover reveal for Mia Sheridan's upcoming novel that will take us back to the Archer's Voice world and into the life of compelling side character, TRAVIS!  


TRAVIS releases 19 July, check it out below!  




 Buy Links Coming Soon

Book Description:


Travis Hale has it all. An important role as the sheriff of the idyllic town of Pelion, Maine. Looks that regularly and consistently make women fall at his feet. Two nephews and a niece he adores, and a family who’s mostly forgiven him after a series of unfortunate decisions years before. Perhaps his past is riddled with regrets and misguided choices, but his future looks bright and limitless.

Until the new guy in town crosses him in a way both shocking and indefensible.

A guy who, as it turns out, has a sister who may be equally as disastrous to Travis’s well-ordered plans, though in an altogether different manner. Not that there’s any real risk of him falling for the smoothie-making, birdseed-eating wild woman. She’s not even his type. A plant lady from California with a head of unruly curls and an equally messy past. More than that, she’s only in town for the summer, busy mooning over perfect-in-every-way Gage Buchanan.

And if Travis knows anything, it’s that he refuses to be second best. Ever again.

Haven Torres’s life fell apart. Or more to the point, it burned to the ground. At the time, it seemed like a solid idea to jump in her car, her brother a mostly-willing co-pilot, and embark on a cross-country adventure.

When they land jobs at an exclusive tennis and golf club in a picturesque lake town in Maine, Haven’s hopeful it might prove a summer to remember. Especially if she can catch the attention of the most eligible bachelor in town and her current crush. Even the kindest, most upstanding, perfect of men aren’t opposed to summer flings, right?

But when she meets the local sheriff—all swagger and arrogance—and learns of her brother’s scandalous misdeed, she knows that Pelion is just another town where their stay is best . . . short-lived. Still, she and Travis strike up an unlikely friendship and Haven sees that the gorgeous lawman isn’t only easy on the eyes, but he has . . . layers. Not that she’s going to peel any of them. He’s only her friend. A friend willing to scratch her back, if she scratches his.

It seems simple enough. She’ll help him make her brother sweat a little. And he’ll help her win over Gage. But before either Travis or Haven knows it, simple turns complicated, friendship gets flipped on its ear, passion faces down perfection, and they both discover that sometimes you have to lose it all to find exactly what you need.

World of True North - Cover Reveals

 



Welcome to the Speakeasy TAPROOM I am so excited to help share the cover reveals for the upcoming books in Sarina Bowen's True North World!




TOUCHSTONE BY KAREN STIVALI

Release Date: June 29, 2021






Book Description:


Sam doesn't think love is in the cards. The cards disagree.

When Phoebe Stevens' life implodes in a spectacularly public fashion, she's desperate to escape Manhattan. So the offer of a job setting up a new Vermont gastropub couldn’t come at a better time. Driving a U-Haul on winding mountain roads is Phoebe's personal version of hell. But when the caretaker of her guesthouse answers the door tousled, shirtless, and baking cinnamon rolls, her first impression of Vermont dramatically improves.

Sam Trembley believes everyone gets one true love, but he’s already blown his chance. He's spent five years avoiding relationships. Now he’s back in Colebury where sunrise tarot draws and moonlit hikes soothe his soul. But why do the tarot cards keep showing him this nonsense about soulmates? Could it have anything to do with the jaded city girl on his doorstep?

Playing tour guide is fun, but taste-testing her culinary creations as she shimmies her luscious hips around his kitchen is downright irresistible. Soon their chemistry burns hotter than the pub's wood-fired oven.

Has fate brought them together for a summer of love...or a lifetime of happiness?

Touchstone contains craving-inducing menu planning, a sassy white witch grandma, seismic sexy times, and tarot cards on a mission to prove soulmates are real.




HEARTWOOD BY J.H.CROIX

Release Date: June 29, 2021



Book Description:

She needs a fresh start. He wants a second chance…

My new job as a chef in a small town was supposed to be my ticket to peace and quiet. I didn’t expect to run into the former hockey star who gave me the hottest nights of my life. And, oops, he’s sort-of my new boss. So much for keeping my past where it belongs.

Ty still thinks I’m the fun party girl. He has no idea how much things have changed. One thing that hasn’t changed: the spark between us. It’s hotter than the blowtorch I use on my crème brûlée.

I’m already keeping secrets, so what’s one more? Our tryst is forbidden, it’s fun, and it gets complicated as fast as you can say “check, please.” I didn’t expect to have a future with Ty. And I definitely didn’t expect to have a baby with him.

Some falls are harder than others. But it depends on who’s there to catch you...



HOMECOMING BY REBECCA NORINNE

Release Date: July 1, 2021





Book Description:


Who knew falling in love with my fake girlfriend could feel so real?

I don’t have time for distractions, which is a huge problem since my new next-door neighbor Rosalie Wentworth is very distracting. She’s kind, beautiful, and makes me laugh like no woman ever has before.

Unfortunately, the two of us add up to one really sad country song—I’m nursing a bruised ego following a broken engagement and she’s suffering through a messy divorce—so I vow to set my attraction aside and focus on being her friend instead.

That’s easier said than done, however, since her mom is convinced Rosalie and I are perfect for each other. When one of her matchmaking schemes goes a step too far, Rosalie and I hatch a plan of our own: pretend to date for a couple of months to get her mom off our backs.

It’s foolproof, really.

Only, what started as a fake relationship is starting to feel very real, and now I don’t know if I can go back to the way things were before. Because it turns out if home is where the heart is, then Rosalie is mine.

Book Description:


She’s a political princess and media darling...

There’s no such thing as bad publicity. Yeah, right. Tell that to the PR firm that handles Tracy’s very prominent political family. Pushed by scandal from Boston to the boondocks, now she’s on the other side of the serving tray, dishing up beer and burgers, hoping no one recognizes her. But there’s something very familiar--and maddeningly tempting--about the new caterer at Speakeasy.

He’s a cranky recluse...

Colton was the star of the celebrity chef circuit until he wasn’t anymore. Now he lives in a remote country cabin and spends his time alone, far from the spotlight and liking it that way. Until the gorgeous new waitress at Speakeasy starts poking at his resolve and suddenly all he wants is to see her let down her hair. And spread it all over his pillow. She’s got secrets he knows he won’t like, but he can’t stay away from her.

She lives in the spotlight, and he hates attention. When her public life collides with his private one, can their love write a fairy-tale ending after all?




WILDFLOWER BY MAE WOOD

Release Date: August 2, 2021




Book Description:

When the prize is love, sometimes you get stung. But if you’re lucky, you just might hit the sweet spot…

Juliana Burton needs a medal at Speakeasy's beer festival to push her brand-new, woman-owned brewery into the spotlight. She thinks she knows just how to do it, too--with a beer made exclusively from Vermont ingredients. Hops, check. Barley, check. But what she really needs is the best honey in the state. Too bad the only thing standing in her way is six feet tall, smokin’ sexy, and her secret high school crush.

After a very public disaster in Boston, Riggs Lyon is home with his teenage son in tow. Riggs is taking over the family beekeeping business with an eye to offload it and start life over somewhere where "Lyin' Lyon" isn't a joke. Selling honey to Juliana doesn't make business sense. She can't afford the high prices Lyon honey fetches in specialty shops and farmer's markets. But somehow, he’s having trouble saying no to anything she asks him for, whether it’s in the hive or in the bedroom.

Book Description:

It’s my last night in New York. And the woman of my dreams is three feet away, expertly twirling a bottle of vodka behind the bar and making the perfect pour. I’ve never seen anyone as beautiful as Melody, with her enigmatic eyes and a gorgeous smile. All I have to do is introduce myself. And then...

I choke. And my chance for something--anything--with her is gone.

Months later, I think I’m dreaming when I see her doing bartender tricks here in Vermont. Now all I can think about is having those long, beautiful, fingers performing their magic on my body.

But I’m pretty sure she’s hiding something. It’s painfully obvious she’s keeping me at arm’s length just when I need to hold her close. She brings out my protective instincts, but I’ve got problems of my own. If I’m not careful, I’ll destroy everything I’m trying to build.

Losing her again might break me this time, because now I can’t imagine life without the light of my Firefly.

Book Description:

He doesn’t trust women. She only trusts dogs. Why can’t they keep their paws off each other?

Darren Reade builds stone walls in Vermont--and around his heart. Women don’t stick around, so it’s better to put up No Trespassing signs and focus on raising his adopted son. Darren is willing to do whatever it takes to help the boy cope with his mother’s death. But doing it alone is a challenge.

Grace Hollings indulges her love of old-school jazz by singing nights at the Speakeasy Taproom, and spends her days training service dogs, connecting small humans with smart pooches. Of course she’d planned to be married already, but a failed engagement has taught her that dogs make better company than men.

One evening, Grace and Darren don’t exchange names, but they do engage in a single night neither of them will forget. Is once all there is? Or can they train their hearts to trust what they’ve built under the starlight?

Randall Dickson is coping. Sort of. An upcoming medical eval, one that could end his military career, has him stressed and making bad choices. So when a concerned friend issues a strongly-worded “invitation” to Vermont, R.D. is all in for a change of scenery, a temporary job as a bartender, and the opportunity to shake himself out of his self-destructive routine.

Then he sets eyes on his seriously sexy new co-worker…

Lily Reynolds, an artist by day, Speakeasy’s favorite bartender at night, works hard to stay positive, unlike her surly new coworker. He may be a treat to look at, but that grumpy attitude and terse manner are not her type. So when Lily finds herself in desperate need of someone to share expenses, she convinces R.D. to rent her vacant room. There’s no way she’ll find herself falling for him.

She’d like to find the secret admirer who’s leaving her secret love notes around the bar, though. But he won’t reveal himself...

This standalone contains: opposites who definitely attract, a workplace romance, and an opinionated French bulldog.

Book Description:

The worst kind of heartache is the kind you can’t walk away from.

Jilted. Living in a glorified closet. The world’s worst bar waitress. I just need to keep a roof over my head and make tuition payments until I can finish graduate school. Then my real life will start. But right now, long nights at the Speakeasy have me burning the candle at both ends and the wax melting all over my fingers.

When a bar manager offers me a job taking care of his adorable five-year-old daughter, it seems like the perfect solution. I get a quiet place to study. Matteo gets a reliable sitter.

There should be no complications. Except that I like my new boss a little too much. His gorgeous dark eyes humble me, and the long talks we share fill me up inside. I can’t possibly fall for him.

But the undeniable pull between us leads to a scorching kiss I can’t ignore or forget, and suddenly I’ve fallen for them both, father and daughter.

And now three hearts are at stake.
