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

BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Jess Bryant

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Everyone in Fate, Texas knows that Bluebell Carter has always been a little bit crazy. There was that time she colored her hair pink and the time she keyed her boyfriend’s car not to mention how she up and left town and her daddy in the dust ten years ago. Rolling back home in an ugly orange bridesmaid dress was not the reappearance she’d ever planned to make and staying in town was the last thing she ever thought possible. Then again, being in Texas does crazy things to her brain (maybe it’s the heat?) because before she can say “bless your heart” she finds herself tangled up with a handsome, hard-muscled cowboy.

Zach West earned his hard body the old fashioned way – lots of hard work on hard Texas land. He’s spent his life playing the role of responsible West brother, the oldest, the protector and guardian. His father’s death left him to care for two younger brothers, a grieving mother and a ranch. He’s had enough of caring for other people to last a lifetime and zero plans to add a woman to that list but Bluebell has a way of driving him nuts that’s impossible to resist. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. She’s pretty enough to drive a man to drink, to sin… but to love? Now that’s just crazy.

Okay let me just start by saying that I LOVED Crazy Little Thing Called Love. A lot. I read a ton of books and I like a lot of them but this was fun and sweet, hot and heartbreaking. It’s what a romance novel should be.

Blue was incredible. Doing her own thing even while she battled feelings of abandonment and being unloveable. She was strong and brave, not letting her issues get in her way. Mostly. And Zach, sweet baby J he was all MAN. I loved him from the first scene and that never let up, which is rare because I’m usually Team Heroine.

The chemistry between Blue and Zach was off the chart and not just the sexual chemistry. When they were together, bantering and bickering, I smiled as I read those scenes and now I’m jogging my memory to see if I’ve read anything else by Jess Bryant because I really enjoyed reading Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

Is there a Riley & Maddie story in the making or…??

NEW RELEASE & EXCERPT!!! ~ Doc Marshall by Jessie Cooke

Title: Doc Marshall: SKULLS – The Early Years #1
Author: Jessie Cooke
Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: October 26, 2018

 
 
Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. Every man and woman that lives on earth makes their mark on it while they’re here. But some people leave an indentation…and Doc Marshall and his old lady Dallas were two of those people.

 

Doc Marshall’s beginnings were not humble. He was born with advantages that other people only wished for. But Doc didn’t want the “things” that his father, a surgeon, worked so hard to give him. What Doc wanted was for his father to notice him. He wanted his father to realize that he was different, special even. By the time Doc was a teenager however, he’d given up on that…and he had realized that Landon Marshall’s ambivalence toward him had actually been a blessing, because it left him determined to leave his own mark, his own legacy…people would remember his name someday, and not because he was Landon Marshall’s son.
Doc joined the army before he was old enough to vote. He saw unspeakable things in the jungles of Vietnam, and he used what he saw, and what he learned to prepare himself for what he wanted. Doc came back from the jungle with his sights set on becoming the president of a powerful MC…the Southside Skulls. He used his intelligence, his grit, and his focus, to make that happen quickly. By the time he was twenty-five…everyone knew his name. He was sitting on top of the world and it was his for the taking…then in walked Dallas Paxton, just to shake things up.
Dallas grew up in the times of free-living and free-love. She was a hippie in almost every sense of the word. She loved hard and passionately, without holding back. Something about the MC president with the incredible blue eyes, crawled under her skin and burrowed in deep…and before their story was over, Dallas wouldn’t be the same carefree, earth-loving, peace and love girl that she was before.
Doc Marshall didn’t make a lot of mistakes, but usually when he did, they were monumental. People might even whisper about them behind his back…but there was only one person on earth who had the balls to say it to his face, and that was Dallas. They loved passionately, they fought passionately, they lived passionately. They built an empire together, one they would leave for their son, Dax.
This is their story. The beginning and the middle. The question that begs to be answered is…who will remain standing in the end?
Join Doc, Dallas, the early Southside Skulls and their offspring for a wild, tumultuous, passionate ride that will leave you breathless…and aching for more.
