Bared. (A Green St. Girls romance) available for pre-order ~ LIVE July 27th

Exiled at 17
A millionaire at 21
Alone except for my girls
The Green Street Girls
That’s what we called ourselves, me, Charlie, Gwyn & Indigo
Each of us sent away, left alone in the world until we found each other
I’m Athena and this is my story

Tru walked into my pool hall like he owned the place
Long and lean, with a killer smile and a confident walk
I wanted him. Instantly.
And I had him
But Tru wasn’t the kind of guy you could screw and forget
No, he had staying power
And he worked his way under my skin
Into my heart
In no time he had me doing something I thought myself incapable of,
Falling in love

What the hell do I do now?

💚💚💚💚LIVE JULY 27TH!!!! 💚💚💚💚

Sweet & Sexy Summer Romance – Sweet Tea & Tattoo Ink – $.99

ABOUT: Dixie Covington is a redheaded spitfire with a sultry southern drawl. She loves her family, her small piece of the world and her art. But what Dixie desires more than anything is the freedom to fall in love with a man of her own choosing. So when her parents announce her engagement to a man she’s not even dating, Dixie and her closest friends pack their bags and head to The Big Easy for summer of fun and who knows what else.

Taz Nicorescu is another born and bred in New Orleans artist. With his exotic good looks and skills with a tattoo gun, he has no trouble finding female companionship when he wants it. Taz loves his life just the way it is, living with his best friend and running his well known Ink by Taz tattoo shop. He couldn’t have known a simple neighborly request would change everything he thought he knew about love and attraction.

What starts out as summer romance just might be true love!

EXCERPT:

“I’m spendin’ the summer in New Orleans.” Dixie sat at one of her delicate wooden chairs with the yellow, pink and green striped cushions and smiled at her one of her best friends and cousin Pepper.

“What? You can’t go away for the summer, Mama’s countin’ on you,” Pepper pouted. She was a beautiful woman, with dark brown skin and eyes so light brown they were almost golden. Her mama had married one of Dixie’s uncles and ran the only art gallery in Rock Hill.

Dixie waved a dismissive hand at Pepper. “I’ve already talked to Aunt Sarah about it and she urged me to go. Her only condition was that I send her one painting each week to make sure I’m still focused.” She smiled and lifted her bare shoulders in a shrug. “So, who wants to go with me?”

Marilyn chose that moment to breeze through the front door, arms full with two cloth sacks and her giant designer handbag. “Alright, I’ve got bourbon and mint, water, ice and tequila.” She kicked the door shut with one killer red stiletto and rushed to set the bags down. “I also brought butter pecan ice cream, shortbread cookies and a rib dinner from Dante’s.”

“Jeez girl, did you leave anything for the rest of Rock Hill?” Pepper teased her and plucked the tequila bottle from the bag. “But I approve and that’s why you’re my favorite cousin.”

Marilyn ignored Pepper’s phony smile and dropped into the seat in front of her. “You’re full of it, Pepper but I’ll take it. I could use it.”

Dixie sat on her cousin’s lap and wrapped her arms around Marilyn’s shoulders. “What’s wrong sugar?”

“I’m just tired and frustrated.” It was more than that but she didn’t want to get into it.

Dixie’s blue eyes widened and she stood, walking around the table until she faced her best friends. “I’ve got it! You should come with me to New Orleans, both of you! We can have a fun summer away from our stuffy, controlling parents, no offense Pepper, and enjoy being ourselves!” Before either woman could answer, Dixie turned and took advantage of the open floor plan, grabbing her cocktail shaker, muddler and ice. She didn’t notice the wide eyed stares until she began to muddle the mint and sugar. “What?”

“Are you out of your mind, Dixie Mae Covington?” Marilyn removed her blond locks from the loose bun at the base of her neck. “I can’t just pick up and leave for three months.”

Her auburn brows crinkled in confusion. “Why not? You can write anywhere there’s a power outlet and Wi-Fi.”

“Well I’m in,” Pepper said, grabbing the cocktail shaker and adding a few glugs of tequila. “Texas style,” she grinned and filled three tall glasses.

“Not that I’m not happy you’re comin’ sugar, but why?”

She shrugged and took a long, satisfying sip. “Duvall is a lying, cheating, no good son of a bitch?” Her harsh words were contradicted by her casual tone.

Dixie wrapped an arm around Pepper, “I always thought you were too good for him, doll. Good riddance.”

Marilyn glared, green eyes glittering outrage. “And what about your plans to find a job?”

“I’ve decided I’m going to do it. I’m going to design my own video game.”

Both women squealed and swallowed her up in a heap of enthusiastic hugs and kisses. “That’s so fantastic, Pepper! I’m so happy for you.”

Two pleading gazes turn on Marilyn. “Dang, don’t put it all on me.” They said nothing, just looked at her with stares that grew more pitiful by the second. “Oh fine, looks like we’re all going to the Big Easy this summer.”

Improved & Re-Released: Best Of My Love (Love in Emerald Creek)

I am happy to announce that book 1 in the Love in Emerald Creek series has been re-edited and updated! It will available on Amazon & Kindle Unlimited until Spring, when I plan to take it wide.

kindle small town romance

DRE never returned to Emerald Creek after the man she thought she would marry broke her heart. But a late night phone call from halfway around the world brought her right back to her hometown. And face to face with the man she never thought she would have to see again. Summer in Emerald Creek was everything she remembered—endless festivals, picnics in the park and time with her best friend and her favorite little tykes—and Dre is finding it hard to resist the pull of the chemistry she and Erick still have.

ERICK made the biggest mistake of his life all those years ago but the result, his adorable little girl, was the best thing that ever happened to him. He’d done the right thing, or at least he tried to but his marriage hadn’t worked despite all that it cost him. But now, Dre was back in Emerald Creek and the universe had given him a second chance this summer, to put back together what he broke.
To reclaim the only woman he’s ever truly loved.

Can one summer recall a lifetime of memories and rekindle a love that never really went away?

Second Chance eX-mas ~ Spotlight & Giveaway

Ally & Archer.
They were the quintessential ‘it’ couple. Young, beautiful and ambitious. Everyone said they had what it took to make it. That they would last. She had stupidly believed it. All of it.
Hook, line & sinker.
Then he’d walked away and never looked back.
Never knew what he left behind.
Years later he finally returned to the place where they’d grown up. Met. Fell in love. Smiling and looking all handsome with his big strong SEAL body, and turning Ally’s carefully constructed world upside down.
But Archer realized his mistake and though it took some time, he was ready to make it right. For everyone involved.
And Christmas in Blissful was the perfect setting for magic, romance and a rekindled flame.
Can Archer and Ally find a way to let go of the past and reach for a future beyond Christmas Day?

New Release & Review!!! ~ the Mistletoe Trap by Cindi Madsen

BOOK: The Mistletoe Trap
AUTHOR: Cindi Madsen
RELEASE DATE: 16-Nov-2020

ABOUT:

From the moment Julie sees her best friend, Gavin, in the airport, it’s like no time at all has gone by instead of months and months. No matter how long they’ve been apart, their relationship has always been steady, comfortable, and decidedly just friends. Even though their meddling parents have hung what seems like unlimited amounts of mistletoe everywhere she goes this holiday season, Julie knows some things will never change.

Gavin is well-aware his family’s wanted him and Julie to get together since forever, even though he’s been friend-zoned since they could talk—and he’s been happy to play that role. After all, as the new starting quarterback for the San Antonio Mustangs, he’s got enough on his plate without adding romance to the mix.

But between playing elves in the holiday bazaar to nights spent one-on-one watching rom-coms or soaking in their town’s hot springs, suddenly the “reverse parent trap” they’ve fallen into is actually starting to work. But this could be one scheme where letting themselves get trapped might be way too dangerous.

Each book in the Heart in the Game series is STANDALONE:
* The Wedding Deal
* The Mistletoe Trap

Let me just start by saying that I am a pretty big Cindi Madsen fan. Throw in a holiday romance with a friends to lovers trope and I’m pretty much all in.

Julie and Gavin were good best friends in that they didn’t shy away from talking about their love lives and they were pretty much all up in each other’s business which really sold the narrative that they were lifelong besties. Maybe a little too much like besties?

I could see they were attracted to one another, that was pretty clear early on in the story but it was hard for me to see/believe them as anything more. The anticipation of the story certainly was there what with the fling and all the other people involved, but it took so long for the friends to make that transition that it started to feel…childish.

I loved them both and I thought The Mistletoe Trap was a fun story with some super cute elements, but I felt Gavin and Julie were very immature for their ages and careers. That part did make it easier to believe that it took them so long to get together, but it kind of annoyed me. I was very satisfied with the ending of this story, as always.

This is the kind of romance you want to read because you laugh, you cry a little and you get annoyed at the characters when they don’t behave the way you want them to!

Blurb

I’ve known heartache. I’ve known pain.
The day I met Krista, I felt them all slam into me like a ton of bricks.
She was intriguing and mysterious. Then I learned why she kept so many secrets.
Her hidden past was going to tear us apart piece by piece before we ever get a chance to get started.
And I’m going to let it.

Excerpt:

“I’m gonna clean you up and eat you next time.” My whole body shudders as he pulls out of me. Holding his hand out, I take it as he pulls me up from the bed. My body is still trembling when he wraps his arms around me.

“I need to do that some more.”

“You think I’d let you have a second round?” I tease looking up at him. He laughs.

“I know you would. I’m the Wolf baby. I can eat what I want.”

“Even that fry stuck between my ass cheeks?” I laugh. Wolf’s lips curl into a smile before he spins me around, his hands clamped around my waist. I can feel him drop to his knees, but I jerk when I feel his mouth on me. Licking and sucking, he moves his hands to spread my ass cheeks apart. His tongue runs straight up as I gasp.

“No fries back here but I’d still eat it.”

💚🔥💚🔥💚Welcome to Mustang Prairie💚🔥💚🔥💚
I just wanted to belong…
Sadie had never belonged anywhere other than on stage. A soulful singer and musician, she left home at a young age and never looked back. No one missed her anyhow. Traveling the country with one no good boyfriend or another for work, Sadie settled in New Orleans until another d-bag boyfriend decided she wasn’t enough…and the slutty new bartender was.
She left for Mustang Prairie and the open arms of her half-sister Amelia…or so she thought

I just wanted to protect her…
Dylan Parker was retired at the ripe old age of 34. After catching a serial killer who’d tortured Chicago for a decade, he was ready to turn in his homicide detective’s shield.
Needing distance from his high society parents and their social climbing friends he packed up his truck and bought a bar in Mustang Prairie. Getting reacquainted with small town life would be an adjustment…until he met a copper haired amazon with a voice like warm honey.
Sadie was everything he wanted; a friend, a devil’s advocate, a sister, and a confidante. Theirs was a deeply satisfying friendship so Sadie and Dylan fought their mutual attraction.

Can Sadie & Dylan admit that their friendship feels more like love?

How Could I Forget NOW Available in Paperback!

I am happy to announce that the paperback version of How Could I Forgetbook 1 in the Plentiful in Love series is #nowlive for paperbacks as well!

She was untouchable
Gorgeous. Bubbly. Kind.
And for one night, Kayla had been his.
One gloriously clumsy but heat filled night, she’d been his
To do whatever he pleased. Whatever pleased her.
And then in a flash, it was over.
Next came caps, gowns and graduation
Goodbye, forever.
And just when Dan had given up hope that he would ever see her again,
He found her.
Two doors away.

He was the adorable geek with the magnificent eyes
Smart as hell. Shy. Quiet.
Four years of barely noticing her and then one night, Dan was hers
He was nervous, adorable really
And so curious sometimes a shiver stole through her just thinking about his gentle touch that night
But it was just one night, as far as he knows.
As for Kayla, she knows exactly where she was when her life changed forever
And it was her secret to keep until Dan showed up in Plentiful
And blew her life to pieces

New Release & Review!!! ~ Always a Bridesmaid by Cindi Madsen

ABOUT: Violet Abrams may have been a bridesmaid no less than seven times, but her wedding day was near—she could feel it. Until her longtime boyfriend left her for someone else. That’s just fine—she has her photography and a new project redesigning her sister’s bakery to keep her happy and fulfilled. Fast-forward to the day of his wedding, though, when Violet might have accidentally, totally not on purpose, started a fire. And… Officially the worst day ever.

Firefighter Ford Maguire thought he’d seen it all. Until he’s called out because someone tried to set the local bakery on fire…with a wedding magazine? The little arsonist might be the cutest woman he’s ever seen, but he’s too career-focused to consider something serious. Still, Violet seems like a great person to help him navigate his upcoming “man of honor” duties in his best friend’s wedding.

Pretty soon, not only is Violet giving him lessons on all things weddings, she’s helping him train his latest rescue-dog recruit puppies and weaving her way seamlessly into his lone-wolf lifestyle. But forever is the last thing on Ford’s mind, and if there’s one thing a perpetual bridesmaid knows, it’s the importance of a happily ever after.

Each book in the Getting Hitched in Dixie series is STANDALONE:
* Just One of the Groomsmen
* Always a Bridesmaid
