Jim—go get her, said a painfully familiar female voice in my head

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

 

 

Stan published his first book at age 5, when he managed to win a local writing contest for the library.
He’s matured (slightly) since then, and has switched from writing about a boy and his dog, to clean contemporary romance, murder mysteries, and light fantasy/sci-fi.
Along with his wife,  9 (and counting) children, and a ninja cat, he inhabits a place with a pair of national parks in his backyard.
He considers himself really rather blessed.

~ Website ~ 

Jim Sharp is the only widower in the senior class of Mendon State University. Still reeling from the tragedy that claimed the love of his life, he struggles to pick up the pieces and close his heart forever to love. 
 
When an otherworldly encounter places him squarely in the path of new love, Alex sees no way to give his crushed heart away a second time. 
 
His wife, however, has other plans.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Snippet:
I collected my books mechanically, checking off the titles on my list. I rounded a corner for my final item and nearly tripped over myself when I noticed I wasn’t alone in the aisle. A pixie cut blonde in a light blue polo shirt and dress slacks was slipping books back on to the shelf. At first, I guessed it was another bookstore employee, but then she turned just enough that I caught a glimpse of her shirt. A silver pirate brandishing a sword was embroidered over her right breast, encircled by the words “Smithville” and “High School,” and underscored by the graduating class right after mine. I hadn’t seen another student from my old stomping grounds in almost two years. Most of my peers had either stayed home to farm, joined the Army, or gone to the local community college.
I hesitated. My eyes wouldn’t let go of her. That was a serious problem.
Jim—go get her, said a painfully familiar female voice in my head.

I know I should tell you the truth…but I think my truth will hurt you

Monday, February 18th, 2019

 

J. L. Petersen lives in Denver with her husband. She finds inspiration in her adopted state of Colorado and her belief love is the most powerful positive emotion we can experience.

~ Facebook ~ Twitter ~
   
Logan, the eldest of the MacBride clan, is thrilled at his brother Clay’s pending nuptials to Sandy. But when Sandy’s sister RJ arrives at the family’s ranch, Logan’s world is turned upside down. 
 
However, the sisters’ shared past has created scars and barriers against love testing Logan’s ability to push aside his need and patience to win RJ’s trust and ultimately her unwavering love.

 

 

 

 
 

 

Snippet:
RJ ached for her sister. Sandy was always the starry-eyed sister. But she was hurt by how Sandy could have been going through this and never saying one word to her. She had to know. “Why couldn’t you talk to me about this?”
“I’ve struggled with how I was going to answer that,” Sandy said, holding up her hand to forestall RJ interrupting her. “I know I should tell you the truth but I think my truth will hurt you. I never want to hurt you.”
“I’d be more hurt with lies,” RJ told her. She’d learned early to protect herself from the cruelties her family could dish out and instinctually threw up her emotional guards.
Sandy nodded. “Alright. I didn’t want you to ruin it for me. I know you wouldn’t see it that way but you’re so against love and marriage, I just didn’t want you to pop my bubble until I figured out what I felt and wanted.”
RJ felt those comments like a physical blow. No barriers she could erect stood a chance against her sister thinking she would ruin her chance for happiness. She couldn’t speak.
“Oh, RJ! Don’t cry. You never cry,” Sandy wailed when she saw the silent tears in her sister’s eyes. She started crying also as she grabbed her sister’s hands. “I’m so sorry. Please, please don’t cry.”
RJ slowly pulled her hands free from her sister’s grasp. “Why do you want me here, now?”
“Because I love you. I want you to share this with me. I know you want me happy. I just didn’t want logic and family history to interfere. I wanted to understand, on my own.
RJ couldn’t tell if she was breaking up inside or freezing up. Afraid she would break down in pain she stood. “Sandy, I can’t do this right now. Can I call you tomorrow morning?”
“I thought we were going to spend the night together?” Knowing she’d hurt her sister crushed her.
“Please. Tomorrow.”
“Okay,” she said standing, then wrapping her sister’s stiff body in a hug. “I love you.”
Nodding, RJ strode away before she lost it. She didn’t look back.

to her. With each finished renovation project, it is harder for

cellar…

My Review

Smithville is the new home for Julia, who, after a devastating illness, finds herself divorced when her husband doesn’t care for her anymore. In this small town, she finds peace with herself and her illness through gardening and restoring the dilapidate house she buys. Julia is a character in  Kirsten Fullmer‘s first book, now her own story is told in the pages of Hometown Girl After All. Hometown Girl After All is an uplifting,old fashioned romance that will make you feel good inside.

It is a lovely tale of new beginnings, the wrong people leaving our lives and happy endings. The writing flows smoothly from one scene to the next and from the first book to this one. This book is “stand alone” and can be read separately from the first one as I did. It makes great reading for a cold night or on the beach. Romance lovers everywhere will enjoy it.

He needs this job to honor his late wife.  She needs to complete her late fiancé’s bucket list to be free

Friday, December 21st, 2018

 

Jennifer lives in Arizona where she writes escapist fiction she calls “Cotton Candy for the Soul.”

 

 

He needs this job to honor his late wife.
 She needs to complete her late fiancé’s bucket list to be free.
Former action-movie star Chet has counted the days since he lost his wife last New Year’s Eve almost a year ago. When he’s given a shot at starring in a reboot of her favorite TV show, he jumps at it. But there’s a catch: the producers won’t hire him unless he can prove he’s regained emotional stability—by bringing a steady girlfriend to his five auditions.
Which means: five mandatory dates for this bereft widower.
Social worker Holly lost her fiancé to war. With his good life snuffed out too soon, she feels compelled to finish his bucket list of unselfish deeds. But four years later, several remain, and they’re ridiculously impossible. Until she accomplishes her soldier’s dreams, she can’t even consider moving on with her life.
When they meet on the beach at Getaway Bay, what she doesn’t know is homeless-looking mourner Chet is actually Colt Winchester, screen star and fashion icon. What he doesn’t know is that he’s a means to an end.
When their walls start to crumble on their Christmas season dates, can these two find love again, or will they forever be chasing ghosts?”

 

Snippet:
“Excuse me.” A server approached with a silver platter covered with frosted sugar cookies. “Would you care for a cookie?”
“Who says no to a sugar cookie?” Holly took two—a star and a snowman. “Thank you.” One bite of the star’s vanilla-almond buttercream frosting sent her mouth into ecstasy.
“These are good,” Chet ate his green-frosted Christmas tree in two bites.
“Did you try the snowman?” The frosting of her second cookie melted into a sweet coconutty heaven on her tongue. “Mmm. It’s childhood in a sugary bite.”
“Do you bake?” He spoke through a mouthful. “Mmm. Cookies are love.”
Chet caught Holly off guard. He hadn’t seemed like the type to make such a tender analogy.
“Ah, sometimes. And you’re right. Especially sugar cookies. They require so many steps I always just buy them.” She never made them. Not even for Rick. “The only thing that could motivate a person to make them is love of the recipients of the cookies.”
“That,” Chet said, “or a deep love of sugar cookies.”
“Gluttony could also be a motivator.”
“Where’s that platter? We should get more of those.” Spoken like a true hungry person.
Holly had never experienced true hunger, at least not physical hunger. Maybe Chet needed more cookies.
“If we walk around, we might run into the sugar cookie person again.” Or someone with another kind of food, if Chet needed it. However, tonight, Chet seemed a lot less like a guy who needed to fish to feed himself than he had the other day.
They walked toward a table with chairs and sat down. Chet reached across the table and took her by both hands. “I think girlfriend is right for now.”
Girlfriend. Holly stared down at their clasped hands atop the green velvet tablecloth. His were rough, like they’d held a fishing rod in the sun for a lot of hours, day after day. She’d seen him on the shore.
“So that makes you my boyfriend.” The word sounded younger than she felt. The last four years had aged her. Against her collarbone, Rick’s unused wedding ring heated up again. “You work fast.”

 

“Not usually.”

“Text me when you’re done.” Rae turned with the stroller, but Dylan put his hand over hers on the handle.
“Isn’t Beth going to get her picture taken too?” he asked.
“She’s too young. He’ll scare her.”
“Not if she’s with the Littles. Come on. Do you really want to have a picture of Preston but not one of Beth?”
“Well . . .” Rae hadn’t considered that.
“When she’s sixteen, she’ll want to know why you have a picture of Preston with Santa and not one of her.” He arched a brow, his head tilted. “She’ll play the you love him more than me card.”
Rae frowned, but he had a point.
“Baby, do you want to go with Preston?” When Beth nodded, Rae heaved out a breath and stepped back so Dylan could take hold of the stroller.
“Okay, guys, each of you put a hand over mine.” They did, and the four of them strode toward the Santa Claus line.
Rae’s eyes prickled. That man had been Heaven-sent. She’d worried how she could ever fill the hole that Mike’s death had left in her children’s lives, and then Dylan had shown up.

Fair
 magazine,
she’s got influence and fame, a social calendar as packed as her

always understand Marge’s dreams, but their connection was
undeniable. Marge isn’t that awestruck girl anymore—but for the
first time in her life, she has no idea which path to follow. Maybe
the answer is to step back, take a doctor-ordered European vacation,
and explore exactly what and who makes her happy. The answers might
surprise everyone—especially Marge…

A
Chateau Jolie Romance #1
by
Heather McGovern

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 10/30/2018
 

 

In
the quaint mountain town of Windamere, North Carolina, the three
Sargent sisters are determined to make their hotel and winery,
Chateau Jolie, a success. And one by one, they’re finding that
nothing pairs better with new beginnings than unexpected love…
The downside of living
in a charming small town is that it’s impossible for Brooke Sargent
to avoid anyone. Especially someone as big, handsome, and friendly as
Trevor Bradley. At his brother’s wedding, they flirted and
danced…before Brooke recalled that she’s not ready to trust any
man after her divorce, let alone one who’s the competition. Her
family’s struggling chateau is planning to host the local senior
prom—without the Bradley family’s renowned Honeywilde Inn
muscling in and stealing the glory.
Trevor has thought of
no one else since the night he and Brooke connected. Even though she
shot him down—hard—he’s seen the warmth beneath her guarded
facade. Working together, they could give the high school students a
spectacular prom. Navigating the rough terrain of Brooke’s
business, while proving himself to his own siblings, won’t be easy.
But Trevor loves a challenge—especially one that could win him the
woman he can’t stop wanting . . .

by
Lisa Becker
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
“Witty,
heartfelt and emotionally satisfying. Everything I want in a second
chance romance! Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down!” #1
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken 

 

 

In
high school, Charlotte Windham went through a typical ugly duckling
phase – glasses and all, while harboring a crush on Garrett Stephens,
the school’s athletic heartthrob. Fifteen years later, Charlotte and
Garrett have a chance encounter at a Los Angeles restaurant. However,
this time around, Charlotte has leveled the playing field. She’s a
bestselling novelist and no longer “Glasses,” the humiliating
nickname Garrett gave her. She’s a catch and, thanks to corrective
eye surgery, it’s not just her eyes that see better…so does her
heart! Garrett hasn’t fared poorly either, transforming from teen
heartbreaker to adult lothario and is now a successful professional
golfer suffering from a possible career-ending injury. Can Charlotte
forgive Garrett for his past ways, and more recent Don Juan
lifestyle? And, can Garrett change his ways for a second chance with
Charlotte, who may just be perfect for him?

Author Interview: 

Tell us about your writing – What genre do you prefer to write? What books, stories, other publications that you’ve written are your personal favorites? Anything new coming up?

 

I love writing contemporary romance stories. While my reading choices are much more varied I like telling a story that I can easily put someone in. I will always have a fondness for my Mile High Romance Series. The women in those stories hold many characteristics of some of my closest friends. But I am falling in love with the MacBride family. I am currently working on continuing the series with the third book which is Brand’s story.

 

What about you as a person? What do you do to relax? Favorite movies or tv shows? Hobbies?

 

My “go to” is always reading. Always has been and I suspect always will be. While I enjoy walking, golfing and hanging with my family and friends I crave days where I can just read undisturbed.

 

I love, love love old movies. By that I mean those made in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. And as an odd counterpoint to that I am hooked on many of the Real Housewives shows. But the Hallmark channels, both the regular channel and the Murder and Mysteries channel are on a lot during the weekends, to my husband’s dismay.

 

What gets your creative juices going? Do you write to a music, and do you want to share your playlist?

 

I always have ideas for my stories but the getting down to writing is usually based on having the personal space to do it. When my life is crazy busy, writing tends to get pushed to the back but in those nice quiet days I can usually get my mojo going.

 

“All writers must have cats, especially if they write fantasy or speculative fiction.” Do you have a stand on this one? Any cute pictures of your kitty or other pet?

 

Sorry cat lovers, but I am not one. As a kid we always had dogs but my husband and I neverhad any. He wasn’t much into having pets. However, I have a beautiful golden doodle granddog who was featured in my first book, Love in a Moment.

 

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose? What food would you serve?

 

I would dine with any of the male leads in my books. The women in them I already relate to but those men I’d like to get a bit closer to that testosterone.

 

If you could travel anywhere, on earth or off, where would you go?

 

I am starting to do this. This year I’ve done a fabulous Alaskan cruise and at the time of writing this I am preparing for a trip to Ireland and Scotland.

 

Describe your dream writing spot.

 

Anywhere. I’ve written at a pool in Mexico, on a plane, at a coffee shop and in my kitchen. It’s not about the place but more about a frame of mind and time.
