Synopsis: 

Jovie

Between running a successful business and attempting to pen a best-selling novel, I don’t have the time or energy for the kind or romance I love to write about.

So, I let it fall to the wayside.

The thing is, life has a funny way of delivering what you need when you least expect it. And trust me, I was not expecting a poodle to be the one delivering a sexy Brit into my world.

Ewan

A tragic accident left me with time for only one woman in my life – my little sister, Amelia. Raising a teenager is enough work without adding in the hassle that comes with relationships.

But when my disobedient dog, Clark, crashes into a sexy dog trainer and practically bows at her feet, the attraction is immediate.

The chemistry between us is hard to fight and Jovie fits comfortably in my life with Amelia.

It’s all or nothing when someone else decides they want to change the game. Someone deadly, who has their sights set on what’s mine.

Excerpt 

Copyright 2022 Mel Walker

He looks good. Too good.

I stare into Elijah’s Stevenson’s intense hazel eyes, and I’m transported back in time. His gaze has changed; it carries with it more confidence and self-assurance than the nervous tic he used to possess. His inability to maintain eye contact with me had always given me a thrill, made me feel special, gave me a sense of power. His ability to swing on an emotional pendulum was one of my most favorite things.

One second, he’d forget who I was, and we’d be just two friends, hanging out and enjoying the little moments, something other boys in my class never understood. They always looked to impress me with their over-the-top gestures. Not Elijah. Once he got over the nervousness and he relaxed enough to reveal himself, we shared some truly special moments. Moments I didn’t get to share with many other people, moments I know he didn’t share with anyone else.

And then there were moments like this.

Friends don’t greet one another this way. Yet, we were always only friends. When these greetings started, I never expected that they would last. I expected he’d want more. I waited. Waited for him to take charge, and every single time he retreated. Until that very last time.

But it’s been ten years, and I’m different. I’m a shell of the princess who ruled the hallways at Spring Hills High. The ten years were not nearly as kind to me as they’ve been to him.

He has grown into a man. A tall, dark, handsome man with designer clothes, a New York City strut, and a confidence he never possessed before. This time his gaze doesn’t falter. We lock eyes, and it’s me who looks away first.

I inhale the expensive cologne, and images of equally tall models and trust fund women on his arm invade. My feet retreat, taking with me the confidence I possessed a moment ago. I realize now that he’s in the driver’s seat and the best I can do is hold on tight and pray he leads us to the promised land.

New Romance Book Release!!! ~ Lost to Us (The President’s Daughters Series) by Kathryn Shay

Title: Lost to Us
Series: The President’s Daughters #5
Author: Kathryn Shay
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 8, 2022


Why is this woman a look-alike of one of the president’s daughters?

Set in a beautiful island country in Italy, Bianca Lucchese and her husband Joe work hard at their veterinarian practice, raise their kids and keep their marriage vibrant. But two interfering mothers bring them to the brink of separation. When Bianca meets Andraya Manwaring, her life falls apart and Joe isn’t there for her. He’s left her at the worst possible time in her life—when she discovers she’s the long-lost daughter of a US president.





The end of August  

“We have to talk.” Joe made the statement in the office of their veterinarian practice before their workday began. It was a light, airy space, with carefully chosen wooden desks, file cabinets and a long couch on the far wall. She’d brought in fresh flowers so the scent of calla lilies surrounded them.

Bianca’s eyes narrowed in feigned anger. “Is it about those secret meetings and phone calls you’ve been having? I swear Giuseppe Nicoli Lucchese, if you have a woman on the side, I’ll castrate you.”

“As if, Tesoro.” For a moment, his dark eyes danced. “I haven’t looked at another woman since you fell into my arms coming down the steps of the administration building at college.” 

Bianca knew that was true. The same thing happened to her. Love at first sight. And lots of lust, too. They couldn’t keep their hands off each other and were together every minute they could manage. “All right. Tell me.”

He got that shadowed expression on his face that usually meant he had bad news. “I accepted a request from Veterinari All’estero to inoculate wildlife in Africa.”

What?”

“I’m going to work with the vets over there.”

She frowned. “We were planning to do that together, sometime later, when the kids were older.”

“I have to go now. Running our home and practice throws us together too much.”

Merda, this was so unlike the past where they skipped classes to make love and he moved out of the dorm and rented an apartment for privacy and convenience.

She stared at him. She loved him. But… “So you’re going to run away from our problems?”

He stood, came around his desk, leaned against the edge and jammed his hands into his jeans pockets. Damn him for looking so good. “You’re not listening, amore mio. We need a break from each other. I know I need a break from the pressure our Mammas put on us. We fight all the time about them.”

It was painful to hear what he was saying. There had been a lot of pressure and it had affected their relationship. Her voice was hoarse when she answered, “So I get to stay here and deal with them all by myself?”

Joe’s brows knitted. “Mamma will leave you alone if I’m not here. Maybe me being gone will make her listen to me about interfering in our lives. But, yes, you’ll have to deal with your mother.”

Carlotta Ricci was a force to be reckoned with. Since Bianca’s papà was never in the picture, she and her mother had been close. Very close. Too close. And Carlotta never liked Joe, but down deep Bianca knew she wouldn’t approve of any man her daughter had chosen.  

She made herself sound strong. “I’ll handle Mamma. What about the practice?”

“Christopher will take on more responsibility.” The fresh-faced, sweet man, Christopher Messina was just out of vet school when they asked him to join their team and had been a joy to work with.

“We hired him so we could open a second office.”

“That can wait.”

Her eyes filled. “I can’t believe you’d do this to me, Joey.” 

“Bianca, cara, we need time away from each other!”

“At least you do.”

“You do, too. And this way, we won’t have to explain a separation to the kids.”

“And you won’t look bad.” She stilled as another awful truth came to her. “You were thinking of a separation?”

“No, no, that came out wrong.” He took in a deep breath. Stared at her with midnight eyes that made her weak in the knees. “I’m going, for three months, starting in September.”

She tried to calm herself. “Not with my support.”

“Cazzo! You don’t give an inch anymore. What happened to the girl I married?”

“She was deliriously happy when she met you. You promised life would stay that way for us. We opened a successful practice, had two kids we raised together. Then you got distant.”

“Things change, Bianca.”

“Apparently.”

“Please do this for me. I need it.”

She loved this man above all else. She often consented to what he wanted to do in their life together. But she was mad! “All right, Joey, go ahead. Leave the three of us alone.” Even to her own ears, she sounded totally rejected. In the past that would have killed him.

“Will you give me your blessing?”

“What do you think?”

#

Joe couldn’t concentrate all day. Even though he’d had several wellness checks, two sick puppies and a consultation about surgery, he was distracted. Not only had he hurt the only woman he ever loved, he’d sounded like a selfish bastard. 

I need to get away…I want to go…

But deep inside he knew that his marriage was heading for disaster if he didn’t shake things up. And he wasn’t sure he could live without Bianca in his life. 

The fights had been epic. 

First Carlotta…

“You are subservient to him, figlia mia. I warned you against this.” Still tall, imposing and statuesque at sixty-plus, her silvery gaze was cold.

“I am not, Mamma. We compromise.”

“He always gets what he wants.”

“Because I want it too.”

Her mother stared her down. Bianca knew an ace in the hole was coming. “Did you want another child?”

“I wanted to talk about it.” And Joe didn’t. So the idea got dismissed.

“Not that I thought having another was the right thing for you, but you had no choice when he objected. He takes that away from you.”

“Joe likes our life as it is.”

“I do.” His comment came from the doorway. “And Carlotta, I don’t appreciate how you hound your daughter. I’ve told you this before.”

“Do not speak to me like that.”

“This is my home. I’ll speak however I want in order to keep you from hurting your daughter.”

Bianca said, “Joe, I can stand up for myself.”

Angry, he’d whirled on her. His eyes burned. “Then why don’t you?”

Then there was his mother, Rosalina…

“You work too hard, Joey, and afterward, you run around with i figli. Your wife should stay home and take care of them and the house.”

He’d crossed to the woman who’d raised him. Who he loved dearly. “Mamma, I know that’s how you did things in your marriage, but that’s not us. Not most people in Italy these days.”

She touched his face and he could see the veins of age in her hand. Small in stature, a bit overweight, she had the same dark eyes and hair as Joe, though hers was graying. “You need more sleep. More relaxation. If she quit, you’d have peace.”

It was as if he hadn’t spoken. “Santa Maria, you don’t listen to me. Bianca’s not going to give up her career. I don’t want her to. Now, I won’t talk about this again.”

But they had. And more than once he’d found her pressuring Bianca. His wife didn’t cower in front of his mother, but Rosalina triggered something in Bianca that made her not fight back very hard. That probably had to do with her own mother’s strong personality. He and his wife became more and more estranged.

A breaking point came for him the night before he was leaving…

They were getting ready for sleep. He noticed lately she’d been changing in the bathroom. He was stretched out on the bed, with his hands linked behind his head, wearing only his boxers, watching the overhead fan whir around. She came out in a nightgown buttoned up to her neck.

He said simply, “I want to make love.”

“I don’t feel like it.”

“You haven’t felt like it in weeks.” Even now after nearly twenty years of marriage, sex had been frequent and imaginative. 

“I know I haven’t.” She walked to a dressing table, sat down and began to brush her blond hair. She saw him in the mirror when he came up behind her. Put his hands on her shoulders. “You won’t make love with me because I’m going to work with Veterinari All’estero.”

She held his gaze in the glass. “That’s right, Joe. This chasm between us opened up when you said you were abandoning us.”

Fury rose inside him. “You always said you hated when women used sex to manipulate men.”

She turned around forcing him to step back. Her gaze narrowed on him. “I know. And I never thought I’d feel this way about you.”

“What are you saying, that I killed our sex life?”

“Harsh, but probably true.” She stood and didn’t meet his height by six inches. “It’s not my fault that I no longer want you. It’s yours.”

He was so angry he didn’t know what he’d do if he stayed. He stalked to the hamper, redressed in his clothes from the day, and stormed out of the room. He walked over to the street where his childhood friend, Tommaso Galati, lived and slept on his couch on the porch. He left the next day when he and his wife weren’t speaking to each other.

Cover Design: Truly Trendy PR


Eric
Falling in love with a pop starlet has its drawbacks
Lack of privacy, for one
Gossip, for another
But falling in love with Kiki Ramirez was the best thing I’ve ever done
And the stupidest
One story planted by her agent and now I look like a fool
Played by the starlet
Looking like a simp for the world to see
But none of its true and I can’t defend my woman how I want
The urge to fight for her, to defend her is too strong
Even against the Hollywood machine working hard to keep us apart

Kiki
Falling in love with a civilian wasn’t part of the plan
I didn’t believe in love
Not for me and not for my life
But a small town mayor was the man who’d torn down my walls
Snuck past my defenses
And now with our future hanging in the balance its up to me to find a way to make it all work
A crazy agent
A ravenous paparazzi
And a pregnant belly I’m powerless to hide
I want Eric and the life I see for us
But how can I invite this madness into his quiet, small town life?

New Romance Book Release & Book Review ~ One Kind Soul by Christine DePetrillo

Title: One Kind Soul
Series: One Kind Deed Series
Author: Christine DePetrillo
Release Date: August 25, 2022
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Goodreads: https://bit.ly/3SfMkA7 

Tagline: When hot farmer Christian Henley agrees to give her a ride to Maplehaven, bartender Nicole Travers can’t help noticing everything about him. It’s going to be a long drive. 

Blurb:

Christian probably attracted the attention of supermodels. Nicole was no supermodel.

She isn’t enough. She isn’t worthy. No one will ever want her. Nicole Travers believes this to her core. Her older sister made sure to remind Nicole of these truths on a daily basis when they were kids. Now, many years later, her sister’s voice still rings in her ears every time a guy catches her eye. She’s better off focusing on waitressing and tending bar. At least she knows how to do those two things. Attracting a soul mate? Forget it. Although watching her best friend meet her true love makes Nicole wish for the same. Too bad she doesn’t have what it takes.

When her only option to get to her best friend’s wedding is to accept a ride with sexy farmer Christian Henley, Nicole’s self-doubts heckle her from the back seat. Loudly. But she promised to be the maid of honor, and she’s not going to bail on the bride. Besides, a handsome Vermont mountain man with a body full of muscles won’t even notice someone like her. Except he does, and when Christian comes to her rescue on a busy Boston street, Nicole can’t help noticing everything about him. It’s going to be a long drive.

Is one kind soul enough to quiet the voices?

One Kind Soul is a one-night-stand, forced-proximity, small-town, contemporary romance that features a bartending heroine and a farmer hero who rescue each other in every sense of the word.

Teasers:

He was, apparently, a nice guy in playboy’s clothing. He’d gone so far as to try not being so nice, but it went against everything inside of him. 

Mostly inside his heart.

****

The moment Nicole’s hand slid against his palm and the rough skin there scraped along hers, her libido took note. It’d been a while since her libido took note of anything.

****

Christian Henley was a great surprise.

****

“It might be hard for you to believe, but you are extraordinary.”

****

“Just because I have a penis—a stunning one—doesn’t mean I’m a barbarian.”

****

His body was stiff and sore. His brain was a scattered mess of thoughts. His heart bled. Only Nicole could fix that last one.

****

 He kissed her as if his survival was in jeopardy. Quite possibly it was.

 ****

“Let it all out, baby. Leave it all on the floor in here and then we’ll figure out a way to sweep it all away. Together.”

****

Excerpt #1:

“Tell me you’re not going back to Room 513.” Christian sifted his fingers through Nicole’s hair, fanning it out on the bed beneath her. “Tell me you’ll stay right here with me.”

Nicole rose to her elbows then sat up, nudging Christian off her. She slid off the bed and walked, naked, to the adjoining door that was still open. She peeked into her hotel room then looked back to Christian, whose pout was absolutely adorable. As if he might throw a tantrum if she left him alone.

“I’m thinking we ought to see if that bed is as good as this one.” She pointed into her room then at his bed. “I didn’t only buy a single condom, you know. Those things come in boxes.”

The smile that bloomed on Christian’s face was something Nicole would never forget. She couldn’t remember a time she’d ever made a man that happy. When he got up from the bed and stalked toward her, his naked body drool-worthy in every sense of the word, she knew they’d make excellent use of both rooms tonight.

One Kind Soul is the story of two people who have not met their person, the one who just gets them. Who loves and accepts them for exactly who they are. Nicole and Christian may not seem like great partners at the start. He’s confident and flirtatious and she is not confident—at all—and kind of put off by his confidence.

Why?

To put it simple, family issues. Nicole is plagued by self-doubt through not fault of her own mostly and at times it is painful to read but at other times it is just downright annoying. I liked them together, as a couple they worked well together. I even liked the bit of mystery that was wholly unexpected based on the book description. It was a nice hint of confusion through a story that sometimes was a bit too sweet.

This is a good romance and the thing I liked/appreciated most was just how capable Nicole was, how much they both changed and grew as the story came to an end. The secondary characters were fun and endearing, and it was wonderful to watch Nicolle finally found her niche.

Her place in the world.

Excerpt #2:

“Technically, I didn’t give you a choice. I kissed you first. Remember?” Nicole nudged Christian to his back and climbed onto his lap. Boy, did he wish he hadn’t put his sweats back on.

“Oh, I remember. I remember in vivid detail.”

“So I don’t need to remind you then? Okay.” She inched back, but he grabbed her around the waist, keeping her in place.

“Remind? No. Re-kiss? Yes.” He caught her lips with his and his anger quickly dissipated. How could anyone stay angry at Nicole when she kissed like this? 

Author Bio:

Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.

Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.

She lives in Vermont with her husband and cat who defend her fiercely from all evils.
