COVER REVEAL!!!!

Title: Mistletoe & Mr. Right
Author: Lyla Payne
Release Date: November 20th, 2014
Twas the night
before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…but
lust refused to settle in for a long winter’s nap. 
She might be all
nestled, snug in her bed, by why, oh why, do visions of the wrong guy dance in
her head?  


Jessica, (not Jessie),
figures that nothing could be better than a trip to the Emerald Isle for
Christmas break. So she takes a flying leap and follows her boyfriend home for
the holidays, not only sure that he will finally agree they’re
destined for each other, but also that Ireland will provide the perfect
backdrop to the beginning of their happily-ever-after. 


But it turns out his family–and his
gorgeous ex-girlfriend–don’t feel the same way, and even the family goat seems
to be conspiring against her well-laid plans. The only person making the trip
worthwhile is the very last one she should be thinking about, but Grady, the
local farmhand, has a way of showing up when Jessica needs him most…and
least.


USA Today bestselling
author Lyla Payne wraps up the perfect holiday novella, ties it with a ribbon
of romance, and tops it with a light dusting of snow. Perfect to curl up with
under the tree. Just add hot cocoa!

Synopsis

How do you find the will to try, when you’ve spent all your life playing on a field strewn with shattered lives and broken rules?

Tragedy and betrayal taught Jenna Sutherland early on that her safest bet was to fiercely avoid any risk, whether it is in work, life, or love. Now a respected orthopedic surgical resident on the cusp of finally breaking through in her career, she’s more guarded than ever.

When injured NFL quarterback Wyatt McCoy bulldozes into her life there’s no denying he’s cocky, selfish, and downright dangerous — everything Jenna’s sworn she doesn’t want.

Suddenly the levelheaded doctor finds herself facing down her greatest fear, and she’s tempted to gamble all she’s fought so hard to build. The two embark on an intense holiday love affair that quickly teeters on obsession, and tempts them both to think they could go all-in on a real future together. Yet Wyatt’s desperation to stay on the field — and out of the operating room — lures him to take dangerous risks with Jenna’s trust.

Will they win at love or lose everything­ — including their fragile chance at happiness?

 

 

Excerpt

“It’s my understanding you requested me specifically,” she said smoothly, but he could see that she kept moving things on her desk with her busy hands.

“That’s right, Doc.”

“So, I hope that means you plan to be serious about this consult, Mr. McCoy,” she said carefully, catching him staring at her chest. And Wyatt couldn’t hold back the smile that spread across his face.

“I’m willing to do anything for my NFL career, Doc. Besides, cut me some slack, you’re the one that wore that sexy lab coat.”

She practically growled in frustration and he loved it. He needed her off-balance for what he had in mind, but damned if he hadn’t guessed he’d enjoy it this much.

Time to push her a little more, he thought.

As he leaned across her desk and perused her body up and down, he whispered, “Though I do wish it were tighter.”

“Right. Because I sit around in a lab coat to be sexy. Like I’m in Hustler magazine or something.” She suddenly started to coo in a Marilyn Monroe breathy voice. “Oh, no. This microscope is so heavy. Guess I should bend down to relieve the weight of this massive tool. Oh, what’s here between my legs? Oh, it’s so warm down there. Maybe I should investigate? Please. So ridiculous,” she said to herself with annoyance. “Excuse me, are you okay, Mr. McCoy?”

He was definitely not okay. His mouth had fallen open slightly and all the blood had rushed to his lap. Wyatt was so hard he was practically in pain, realizing he may have underestimated this woman. Maybe. Her voice broke through his lust-filled fog.

“I thought it was your shoulder that had the issue. Do you have a head injury too?” she asked with concern, replacing her previously sultry voice.

“Um. Yeah. I mean no. Just my shoulder. You’re the second opinion on my shoulder injury, and my coach also said maybe you could help my game. I’m not sure how though.”

“It may be hard for you to imagine that you could need help from anyone, but I’ve certainly been able to assist some of your teammates to use their bodies more effectively.”

Wyatt raised an eyebrow and smirked. “Now that’s more like what I had in mind.”

Amazon USAmazon UKAmazon CAAmazon ASPaperbackB&NKobo

How do you start over when you gave everything to one life, one plan, and lost it all?

Althea refuses to allow herself to love again. Imprisoned in grief at twenty-four after her husband’s sudden death, she’s convinced her heart died along with him. She spends her days honoring his memory by clinging to the legal career he helped her to build and to the remaining pieces linking her to their life together.

Griffen’s been running from his past. Despite success as an author and investigative journalist, he’s been traveling through life on autopilot. For a decade, he’s chosen perilous adventures and meaningless sex over the danger of any attachments. When he finally returns home to Pittsburgh, he’s slammed by the awakened memories and regret he’s spent years trying to escape.

A chance encounter brings them together. Their instant desire for each other –and the bond they discover between them – shocks them both. Despite her best efforts, Althea can’t resist Griffen’s charm or his intriguing proposition– if she agrees to a no-strings affair with him for the two weeks he’s in town, he swears he’ll walk away when their time is up. Assured she can test the waters of a new life while keeping her vow never to betray her husband’s memory by opening her heart to another, Althea throws herself into the escape Griffen provides her.

Their perfect plans go awry when the intensity of their connection overwhelms them. Will they risk it all on the chance of something great together…or will the power of their secrets and guilt tear them apart?

BOOK REVIEW

The Curse Defiers (The Curse Keepers, #3)The Curse Defiers by Denise Grover Swank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The fate of every being in creation was in danger.”

I find it almost impossible to locate a series that you like, but even more incredible and stunning when each book in a series becomes surprisingly better. I am truly astounded by Denise’s level of talent. Her ability to make each character grow and become intertwined without appearing overly fake or rushed. Her ability to tell a story and make you believe you know what is going to happen next, and yet really you have it all backwards.

I love how all the characters in book three come together, one family making their own rules. Ellie has grown and had no idea the level of support she had around her, until she let them in. Tsagasi, Claire, Tom, David, Collin…she needs them all and they all have their special gifts to help save the world! I hope this isn’t the end….and I agree we need t-shirts. 😉

Book Summary:

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.

It had been years since I’d seen Elec.

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

BOOK REVIEW!!!
Between the Pain (Book #1)Between the Pain by Gia Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Can I just say, this book made me cry, TWICE!. “Fate has a way of playing with the path we take.” That’s the truth in this book. So many ups and downs, so many emotions. Fate and life really like to mess with us, especially Hallie. Gia really makes you fall in love with her characters and then rips your heart out, in a good way. You are easily sucked into the story line and want to, need to know more. Not every book needs a silver lining or a happy ending to keep your attention. I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and honestly if you don’t read this book you are missing out. As soon as I finished, I was on to book two. Happy Reading!
