  About Songbird: 

  One bridesmaid.

One groomsman.
One classic wedding hookup.
But for Callie and Devin, their weekend of passion is anything but typical.
Callie Franklin doesn’t do one night stands.
Ever.
She’s far too responsible and focused on her career to ever let herself give in to temptation.
But, on the eve of her best friend’s wedding, she meets that temptation . . .
And his name is Devin McAllister.
Devin, on the other hand, has no problem with meaningless hookups. The very last thing he needs—or wants—is a relationship.
Relationships come with strings.
Relationships come with heartbreak.
A late-night encounter in the hotel’s piano bar finds the two unable to resist each other. With her angelic voice and bright blue eyes, Devin’s sure he’s never met anyone as beautiful as his Songbird.
Six weeks later, when two pink lines confirm Callie’s worst fears, she and Devin have to face the consequences of their wild weekend.
And they have to deal with each other—whether they like it or not.
With a love story that’s far from traditional, Callie and Devin begin to wonder if their one-night stand could turn into something neither of them anticipated.

A happily ever after.

Exclusive Excerpt: 

Sitting down on the piano bench, I let my fingers drift aimlessly along the keys. I switch on the microphone and start to play the opening bars of my favorite Fleetwood Mac song.

Closing my eyes, I play and sing, allowing the music to soothe my troubled mind. I’m at the final chorus when I feel someone’s eyes on me. It’s the most incredible sensation—instinct alerting me to the penetrating stare of some stranger in the dimly lit bar.

I slowly open my eyes, and my fingers slip off the keys when I see him.

He’s seated at a table just a few feet away. His tie is undone, as are the first couple buttons of his shirt. He gazes at me, and I watch as his finger lazily trails along the rim of his glass while I struggle to remember the words to a song I’ve loved all my life.

The man rises from the seat, his eyes never leaving mine as he picks up his glass and walks over to the piano. I break the spell, forcing myself to look down and focus on the keys. Without asking permission, he sits down on the bench next to me. I take a deep breath and pray for instinct to take over as I finish the song.

After I play the last note, silence hangs in the air between us until he lifts his hand and brushes my hair away from my shoulders.

“Play something else,” he says, his voice deep and smooth against my ear.

So I sing, paying no real attention to the words as we stare at each other throughout the song. I have no idea how long we sit there, but it’s apparently too long for the bartender because he announces last call.

The handsome stranger stands up and reaches for me.

“Come with me, Songbird.”

The look in his eye is unmistakable, filling me with a sense of longing and excitement that I haven’t felt in so very long. I know I’m too tired, too lonely, and probably a little too tipsy to accept this man's outstretched hand.

I do it anyway.

Review: Brave the Heat by Sara Humphreys


Description:
The only fire he can’t put out…

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.

Is the torch he carries for her...

Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan’s biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.



My Thoughts:
I loved this. They were childhood friends and high school sweethearts but she left town and hasn't been back for 15 years. Now Jordan is back with her two daughters and Gavin is the fire chief. They're in the same town again and need to deal with their past before they can move on. I loved Gavin. He is incredibly sweet. I was a little irritated with Jordan for some of her choices, but we all do dumb things from time to time. Not only was this sweet, there were some tears and even some danger. Highly recommend, especially if you enjoy second chances. Can't wait to read about Gavin's brothers!

Review: Chasing Happy by Ann Lee Miller



Description:
An epic fail with his girlfriend flings Ash from Florida to Arizona and into a war between forbidden desires and God. Samma’s childhood bond to Ash startles awake soon after meeting. But she’s duty-bound by idealism and family to marry her long-term boyfriend.

Ash left a career as a marching band director to guide hikes and and fight his solitary battle. Samma plays country starlet and senator’s girlfriend. But their roots dig through dry dust to tangle in the desert heat.

Even if Ash returns to Florida and Samma says yes to the senator, how will they untangle this time?


My Thoughts:
Ash's dad left his mom because he was gay and he couldn't pretend anymore. After an unpleasant experience with his girlfriend, Ash is now questioning his own sexuality. He has moved to Arizona near his father to figure things out. He meets up with his old childhood friend. Samma is planning to marry a man to please her family as well as continue a career that she hates. Both Ash and Samma are really struggling between what is right and what would make them happy. They both rely heavily on their faith to try to make the right decisions. This is an emotional read. It deals with sexuality and is written from the perspective that homosexual behavior is laid out in the Bible as sin. It is both tastefully and respectfully written. You will feel for both characters. I was a little unsure before I started reading, but I loved it and couldn't put it down.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !!
*Notes:
Views on homosexuality that may offend some readers.

RELEASE DATE: August 25th, 2015

LA.Ebook.Amazon

Blurb
I’ve met boys like him before. Rich. Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there is something different about him that piques my curiosity. The way he looks at me, like he is staring through the bars of a gilded cage he’s never left. Like he is one breath away from suffocating beneath a mound of responsibilities. He is different from the rest because he doesn’t wear his money… his money wears him. I just don’t think he knows it yet.
She’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. She’s everything I’ve never been able to be. Carefree. Whimsical. A dreamer. Her laugh is infectious. She is irresistible. I can’t help but be drawn to her with an intensity that steals my breath and muddles my senses. I want to know her, need to know her, but how can I allow myself that liberty when I don’t have the freedom to make my own choices? Phillip and Maggie think they have it all. Even though they come from opposite backgrounds, they each have bright futures paved out, with no distractions holding them back. Until the fateful day they meet each other. After a brief, adventurous time together in The Hamptons, Maggie and Phillip find themselves saying goodbye just as the spark of love flashes intensely between them. Can their budding connection be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?

Review: Hard to Fight by Bella Jewel


Description:
Grace is a bounty hunter who wants to be taken seriously, but her boss refuses to believe that a woman can bring down a dangerous criminal. She finally gets a chance to prove herself when she's given the case of a lifetime: capture Raide Knox and bring him to justice.

Raide is a dangerous fugitive on the run...and the sexiest man Grace has ever met. Catching Raide won't be easy. He's not the kind of man to go down without a fight. Raide is more intense and frustrating than any man she's ever had to deal with, and the instantaneous attraction that sparks between them is undeniable. One thing is for sure...it's going to be a case they will never forget.
**Hard To Fight is a full-length standalone romance with a HEA**


My Thoughts:

Grace is a bounty hunter. A good one, but since she's a woman she's not really taken seriously. Her boss finally decides to give her a shot at a big case and she is supposed to bring in Raide Knox. He's a big guy so everyone is questioning her ability to do it.  Then there is the fact that she's attracted to him, which complicates matters. He's cocky, she's sassy. They're a lot of fun to read. I loved this one. Fun to read with romance, humor, and suspense.
