“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?

had it all. But hidden circumstances separated them leaving her back home with
an unexpected reminder of her brief love affair. 



When Ash shows up on their
ranch she is torn between wanting to share all her joy with him and afraid to
trust him to love her, not just their child.

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.

 

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.

Their last hope at saving Matt’s life will require a sacrifice from each of them

Saturday, August 4th, 2018


Laurie (L.C.) Lewis will always be a Marylander at heart—a weather-whining lover of crabs, American history, and the sea. She admits to being craft-challenged, particularly lethal with a glue gun, and a devotee of sappy movies. Her ninth published novel, her first romance novella, Sweet Water, was inspired by a visit to Oregon’s magnificent coastline, and time spent with Mother Eugenie, upon whom the character Mother Thomasine is based. 

 
Laurie’s women’s fiction novels include The Dragons of Alsace Farm (2016), Awakening Avery (2010), and Unspoken (2004), written as Laurie Lewis. 
 
Using the pen name L.C. Lewis, she wrote the five volumes of her award-winning FREE MEN and DREAMERS historical fiction series, set against the backdrop of the War of 1812: Dark Sky at Dawn (2007), Twilight’s Last Gleaming (2008), Dawn’s Early Light (2009), Oh, Say Can You See? (2010), and In God is Our Trust, (2011).

She is currently completing a political suspense novel planned for a summer 2017 release, a re -release of a romantic comedy, and she’s working on another historical fiction novel for a 2018 release. She loves to hear from readers.
Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a caregiver, a companion, and someone to be his legal voice when he can no longer speak for himself.

 

 
Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but when their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.
 
Mikaela succeeds in reigniting Matt’s will to fight, but his body is losing the battle, and her determination to save him causes her to betray the fundamental promise she made him–to help him die peaceably.
 
Their last hope at saving Matt’s life will require a sacrifice from each of them, and force them to decide how far out on a limb they’re willing to go for love.

 

Snippet:
             “Mikaela swallowed hard, and leaned forward. “So why marry me? Why not just hire me?”
“Because I don’t want to be the pitiful soul with only an attorney, billing hourly, as his voice. I want a wife with the legal power to speak for me when I can’t speak for myself and the personal connection no one else will challenge.”
“Like your parents when they come to take control of your care.”
“As well-intentioned as they’d be, yes. And I trust you.”
“You’d be pitting me against them.” She leaned back, but he was impressed that she wasn’t discounting everything he had said. “No. I would make my wishes clear. You would just enforce them when I no longer can.” He leaned farther forward, to close the distance between them, and looked straight into her eyes. “I know you’re alone, and I know money’s an issue. I can fix that. I have a lovely home that will be yours when I’m gone. And I’ll pay off your debts and provide tuition to medical school. You’ll be a doctor, Mikaela.”

Her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster

Friday, August 3rd, 2018
 
TJ Amberson hails from the Pacific
Northwest, where she lives with her husband and nutty cocker spaniel. Her most recent novels include The Kingdom of Nereth, The Council of Nereth, Fusion, and Love at Lakewood Med. When she’s not writing, TJ can probably be found enjoying
a hot chocolate, pretending to know how to garden, riding her bike, playing the piano, or surfing the Internet for cheap plane tickets.
  
With a love of writing in multiple
genres, TJ Amberson strives to provide well-written, age-appropriate, and
original novels for tweens, teens, and new adults.

Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor. 
 
When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected–and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. 
 
But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. 
 
Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.
 

 

Snippet:
Danielle uses her fork to stab another strawberry out of her fruit salad. “Come on, you can’t tell me that working with someone as good looking as Doctor Kent isn’t going to help you enjoy this rotation a little bit.”
 

“Are you kidding?” I exclaim. “You saw how he was at the
orientation meeting yesterday. He’s completely devoid of personality.”
 
   “Devoid of personality or not, Doctor Kent is handsome.” Danielle gives me a wry smile. “At least your view at work will be nice.”

Sparks Series #1

Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 

Throwing
down the marriage gauntlet has never been so wild.

Thirty-something
paralegal, Hadley Beckett and charismatic, local
sportscaster/daredevil, Finn Wilder, disagree about how they should
share their lives together. Having been together for three years,
Finn increasingly pressures Hadley to move in with him, but being
unusually traditional, she wants to be married first, adhering to her
moral beliefs, just as he clings to his own religious upbringing when
it comes to procreating with her. Each is unwilling to negotiate or
concede marriage to the other. Complicating matters is Finn’s
seemingly double life, keeping his private life hidden to the point
of convincing his viewers—Finnatics—and even his coworkers, he’s
single, amid Hadley’s objections. Yet despite their immense
disparities, they are determined to make their relationship work,
even if it means Hadley has to take their future into her own hands.
Then
again, Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

can’t keep running from his girl problems.

 

 


High

Mitch hasn’t told anyone the real reason he’s been setting
records.

 

 

He’s
trying to outrun his girl problems.

 

 

He
really hits it hard when Holly Isaacson, the girl next door and his
best friend for a decade, becomes buddy-buddy with Jade Montgomery,
who is Mitch’s latest crush. He wants to move Jade from a girl he
invites to eat dinner with his family to a girl he takes out to
dinner-and maybe kisses afterward.

 

 

So
Mitch runs, and he runs fast. Things progress with Jade at the same
rate they fall apart with Holly. Most days, Mitch can’t change into
his running clothes fast enough. But running from his problems isn’t
a good solution, and Mitch will have to face both Jade and Holly-and
decide which one of them to put into the “just friends”
category.

A
girl who’s lost herself and the boy who’s always known how to find
her.

 

 


When
seventeen-year-old Eden Scotson skis to the bottom of a mountain on a
routine trip with her older brother’s best friend, Grayson Young,
they find the lift non-operational and the biggest storm of the
season upon them.

 

 

Unable
to stay in the tiny hut, they decide to make the climb back to the
luxury condos at the top. Along the way, they have to battle the
danger of an avalanche, the elements of wind and snow, and their
feelings for each other. As Grayson deals privately with his mother’s
alcoholism and an absent father, Eden’s grief over her father’s death
nine years earlier is a little more public.

 

 

Compared
to dealing with the complexities of friendship and
more-than-friendship, overcoming grief, and learning how to forgive
old wounds, physically climbing the mountain will be the easiest part
of the journey for both Eden and Grayson.

Sara will have to choose between the country stars of Nashville or the glittering stars of a Wyoming sky…unless she can find a way to have both.

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Cover Reveal for Silver Star by Lisa Swinton due out May 2018! 

Country superstar Sara Silver has it all: fame, fortune, and a mantel full of Grammys. She also has a string of chart-topping heartbreak songs to go with them—all based on her miserable love life. Now her manager says Sara doesn’t sing with the soul she used to. If she doesn’t come up with another hit album soon, then her label will move on to the next big thing.

Sara heads to a ranch in Wyoming to get back to her country roots and rediscover herself. To keep the press away, she hides her identity and is determined to let nothing distract her. Then she meets Cal: tall, brooding, and all cowboy. Sara falls for Cal and the quiet ranch life, but with each song she writes her time there draws to a close.

Sara will have to choose between the country stars of Nashville or the glittering stars of a Wyoming sky…unless she can find a way to have both.

Blurb:

STORM CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON

Having been the class clown through most of her teenage years, eighteen-year-old Ashley Sweeney is ready to leave her family, friends, and reputation behind and start a new life in sunny California. But Ashley’s determination to show her dad and stepmom that she can handle herself in the big wide world falls apart when she becomes the victim of a mean-spirited prank. To make matters worse, the one guy she never wanted to see again has come to her rescue.

Collin Nichols wanted to serve an honorable LDS mission from the time he was old enough to know what one was. But when the former high school football star’s missionary service comes to a crashing halt, he’s suddenly the most unpopular guy in Forest Meadow, Idaho. Now, to avoid his parents’ disapproval and awkward stares from people who used to be his friends, he gladly accepts Ashley’s dad’s plea to help him bring her home safely. If only he can get Ashley to see his way . . . and if only he can forget the electric kiss they shared back in high school.

But getting home is only half the battle. Ashley soon is caught up in the craziness of college life and Collin is forced to stand on the sidelines and watch as she receives attention from a returned missionary who seems like the perfect match for her. But when an unwanted visitor from her past shows up on her doorstep, will she need to be rescued once again? And when the storm clouds finally lift, will a new love have formed in the mist?

Teaser:

Ashley’s dad turned to the police officer. “What about it, officer? May I have my daughter back now?”

“We’ll need to fill out some forms, then your daughter will be free to go.”

“Great.” Her dad abruptly stood and followed the officer to the door, waving at someone from down the hallway. “She’s in here. Come and wait with her while I go sign papers.”

“Sure. No problem,” a deep voice said. Wondering whom her dad was waving to, Ashley stood and turned around. A ghost from her past walked through the door, and her mouth fell open. Standing before her in all his white-toothed, well-muscled, and tawny-eyed splendor was none other than football quarterback Collin Nichols, his thick dark brown hair hidden under a baseball cap. Missionary Collin Nichols.

It couldn’t be. Wasn’t he was serving his mission in New York? “Collin? What are you doing here?”

This was the last thing she remembered before everything went black.

Special
Delivery
Mill
Pond #6
by
Judi Lynn
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
In
Mill Pond, Indiana, neighbors always look out for each other. And
even though tourists are drawn to the small town’s charms, it’s
the locals who fill it with warmth . . .
Traveling
nurse Karli Redding doesn’t have many fond memories of her aging
grandfather, Axel—or of Mill Pond. But with Axel’s health in
decline and Karli on a month’s hiatus between jobs, she volunteers
to set him up with the help he needs. The house and her grandfather
could both use some TLC. Good thing Keagan Monroe, the very
attractive mailman next door, is always ready to lend a hand…
Not
a lot slips by a mailman, and Keagan appreciates Karli’s dogged
attempts to spruce up the neglected property. Painting, fixing the
sagging porch, delivering a constant stream of casseroles from caring
neighbors—he’ll help however he can, all while keeping his
feelings under wraps. A short-term fling just doesn’t fit into his
schedule. But with each passing day, Karli’s bond with the town
grows a little deeper. Has fate sent her exactly where she needs to
be? Karli’s willing to find out, and the first step is figuring out
the perfect route to Keagan’s heart…

My Review:

Special Delivery by Judi Lynn Is an adult Holiday romance at its best. It has some adult situations and minimal swearing. The characters are quirky, though real enough for some to be obnoxious while others are lovable. It is a nice reading that will keep you entertained from page one.

When professional nurse Karli arrives at Axel, her grandfather’s house, she expects to be the only one who’ll help him. Her mother told her that things wouldn’t go well since her grandfather is an obnoxious old coot. So, when she finds there the wonderful, caring and great looking mailman, Keagan, she can’t figure out why he puts up with the old coot. All seems tolerable at first, while she cleans, cooks and paints the dilapidated house, with the help of Keagan and the neighbors who want the house to not be an eyesore in their tourist town. She and Keagan, meanwhile, get a chance to get to know each other, especially, when his friend Brad isn’t trying to make a play on Karli. About when that happens right before Thanksgiving, her two-obnoxious aunts and her uncle show up for their early inheritance.  Life gets interesting.

Special Delivery by Judi Lynn will be well received by romance lovers everywhere.

Scot tugs at my elbow, urging me toward another natural passageway that widens into an open space twice the size of the previous cavern. I stare up at the rounded ceiling above my head. The formation appears natural though the six hollowed openings all around the edges do not. Each of the six openings has a man-made desk situated in it, and each opening looks like it serves a specific purpose. Some have computer screens attached to the wall, others have devices that look like strange ear muffs.

Before I can find out more, Scot leads me down the dimly lit hall to the left. With each step my body tenses. If these people aren’t who they say they are, I’m in big trouble. I scan the area, mentally mapping my surroundings and searching for the best possible escape routes. My fingers tighten on my bow. I take a breath to calm the rising paranoia, telling myself that if they were the enemy, they wouldn’t take a chance leaving me armed.

We turn a corner and enter another cavern. This one is more than triple the size of the first. The whole stinking mountain must be hollow. Several levels of openings, each with their own group of busy people, rise above me to the ceiling nearly forty feet overhead.

My mouth drops open, and my eyes dart around the room, trying to take in everything all at once. On one side of the cave, six computers surround a screen similar to the one Melami used to show Leahli and me the information about Mericon. The people at the computers watch the screen intently, accompanied by a low murmur of voices. Opposite the computers I notice a short passage to another room where, at a glance, I make out all sorts of gadgets and equipment.

On the second level people move around dressed in white coats, and I wonder if they are medicine men and women, or doctors as Tolaree’s textbooks termed them. I turn in a circle, craning my neck to see what is on the third and fourth levels, but my limited height hides them from view.

As I turn, the murmur of voices slows and eventually stops. The eerie silence captures my attention. My gaze comes full circle to meet a slightly older but otherwise mirror-image version of myself. Everything from the petite frame right down to the flaming red hair and violet eyes is the same. My mother, Guinolen Storm.

Now that I regard her in person, I notice the subtle differences between us. Her milky white skin is much paler than mine, and her hair is much tamer and more controlled, with a lot less curl. She’s a fraction of an inch shorter than me, and her mouth is heart-shaped while mine is more oval.

The silence around us makes my stomach twist, and I shift my feet.

Guinolen smiles. “Eridale.”

Her smooth voice holds a lilting hint of an accent. As it sounds across my ears, a thousand brief memories assault me. I remember that voice singing softly in the darkness. I remember it crying as well as fighting. I remember it pledging love to Tanier McClough and later telling me I have a sister. Tears spring to my eyes as these memories flood in, momentarily pushing the harsher feelings back. That lasts for about five seconds before all the longing, sorrow, frustration, and anger return with a vengeance. I swallow hard, working to rein in my tumultuous emotions.

My voice is flat and emotionless when I respond. “Mom.”
