Coming this October from New York Times Bestselling Author, Kristen Proby, comes an all new paranormal romance set in the mystical city of New Orleans…
I am never alone. Not even when I am alone.
 
I see the unquiet dead, the souls that wander through the French Quarter.
 
They can’t move on, and I can’t stop seeing them.
 
I wear malachite for protection, and I control what I let in. It’s the only way to stay sane. 
Everything changes the day Cassian Winslow joins my ghost walking tour and knocks my world off its axis with green eyes the color of the stone around my neck.
 
An unspeakable evil is loose in New Orleans, taking young women and leaving a bloodbath in his wake. More shadows lurking for me. More unhappy dead. There might be a way to stop it.
 
Open myself up to Cassian.
 
If I do, it could spell his death.
 
But if I don’t, it’s mine.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series. 

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana.

From Iconic Supermodel, now Global Business Mogul, Kathy Ireland and #1 New York TimesBestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes a cautionary tale of the dark side of the fashion industry where secrets are your currency–and nobody is irreplaceable.

 

Fashion Jungle, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Rachel Van Dyken and Kathy Ireland is coming January 28, 2020!

Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing date: January 28, 2020

Cover Designer: Jena Brignola

Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world.

Welcome to the Jungle.

As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the “good girl.” The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot… only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.

The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment… with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage.

Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.

And then there’s Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever.

In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell – though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss.

Strap on your stilettos, it’s about to get wild.

Based on true stories.

All it Takes 
by Kristen Proby
A Romancing Manhattan Novel
Release Date: July 30, 2019







New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s second novel in her Romancing Manhattan series delivers the sizzling story of a playboy who’s vowed never to commit until he meets the one woman he’s tempted to break his promise for.

Quinn Cavanaugh doesn’t do anything halfway. He drives fast, works hard, and plays even harder. And the word “commitment” doesn’t exist in his dictionary. He has no plans of settling down with one woman for he needs to be free to move on to the next big thing—whatever or whoever that may be. Each party knows the score going into it, and it’s all been working out fine. That is, until a sexy new colleague enters the scene.

Sienna Hendricks doesn’t give much thought to Quinn and the revolving door leading to his bedroom. She’s way too picky about who she shares her time or her body with and screwing around with a colleague isn’t part of her plan either. Quinn doesn’t intimidate her. And unlike most other members of her sex, she doesn’t melt into a puddle at his feet whenever he’s near. Most importantly, she has no issues telling him no.

But for a man who has the world at his feet, Quinn isn’t accustomed to being rejected. And he’s not about to let that change—no matter how persistent Sienna is. To his surprise, Sienna is everything he thought he’d never find. Pursuing her, and convincing her he’s changed, is going to be the biggest challenge of his life. One he’s completely up for….

New Release & Review: More Than Just A Name by Lynn Jaxon

Happy Release Day Lynn Jaxon!!! I am super excited for this release! This is Lynn’s second book and while different from her first, it is FANTASTIC!! I can’t encourage you enough to give this indie author a chance. Give this story a chance. Check out the blurb, teasers, an excerpt and my review below. OH and go check out the links to follow Lynn as well!

Happy Reading!! ~ Amber

Title: More Than Just a Name
Author: Lynn Jaxon
Series: All for You
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Meredith~

I wasted eight years of my life on a marriage that was doomed from the start. My ex-husband only married me for my family name and money. Now that the divorce is final, I’m ready to move on focusing on providing a happy life for our son. When my friends insisted they take me out to celebrate my new found freedom, I reluctantly agreed.

I should have asked where we were going. I never imagined we’d end up in a male strip club. I was ready to leave before we walked through the doors. That is until I locked eyes with a masked dancer. His green eyes bored into me, owning me with just one look. Then when our hands touched, he made me feel things I’d never felt, and want things I’d never dared to dream.

Just when my dream seemed like it was coming true, my worst nightmare became my reality. My divorce was just a useless piece of paper, and I’m afraid that not even love will be able to save me.

Nash~

I can’t believe I’m doing this. Never did I ever think that this would be me. I’m an elementary school assistant principal, not a male dancer. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m doing this for my brother. I’m helping him keep his job.

That’s the only thing that’s getting me through this night. That is until I lock eyes with the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. Long blonde hair, expressive blue eyes, and a body that would bring any man to his knees. Going into it I never thought this night would change my life and hers so profoundly.

I have my work cut out for me. There is more than just our love at stake. I’ll put everything on the line to save her, and convince her that she’s more than just a name.

5 Stars!!!

Fantastic read from Lynn Jaxon!! Meredith is in marriage hell but finally seeing the light to kick her cheating, horrible husband to the curb as this story opens. From the start you are cheering for Meredith and her adorable son, Gage, to find a happy. Nash Brooks is a single, but focused and loyal guy about to start a new job as an elementary principal when his brother asks for a favor. These two have a Chance meeting that becomes a chance at what they both long for, unless her awful ex wrecks it.

So much humor, passion and phenomenal banter in this story. There may be an insta-attraction, but it didn’t feel like an insta-love. There is a build up with Meredith and Nash talking that made it feel less rushed, despite the timeline not being long. The elements of suspense to the story work and you are definitely drawn into wanting everything to work out for this couple.

So far I’m 2 for 2 with Lynn Jaxon, and I can’t wait to read more from her!!

 

The day I found out I was pregnant should have been one of the happiest days of my life…until I went to surprise Frankie at work and found him banging his secretary on his desk. I should’ve asked for a divorce right then and there.

“Mrs. Find, you can’t go in there right now!” exclaims one of Frankie’s partners.

“It’s okay, Roscoe. He’ll forgive me once he finds out why I’m here.”

Smile on my face, I burst through the door…almost falling to my knees. Frankie has his secretary bent over his desk, pounding into her from behind. I hear him gasp as I spin and slam the door, running back down the hall and pushing the elevator button, thankful when the doors open.

I hear Frankie running down the hall toward me, still buckling his pants. “Baby, wait! I can explain!”

I stop the elevator doors just before they close. “I don’t want to hear a thing you have to say. Don’t come home tonight. I don’t want to see your cheating face.” With that, the doors slide shut.

For months afterward, Frankie put on quite a show. He acted like he was ecstatic about being a father, doing everything in his power to convince me he would never cheat on me again. Thinking of our unborn child, I gave him another chance.

He was only able to keep it in his pants for a few months. The next time I found out about him cheating, I was seven months pregnant. Of course, he had me believing it was my fault because I was fat.

I’m determined to stick to my guns this time. There is no way I’ll let him weasel his way out of this divorce. No matter what, I’m going to stand strong for Gage.

Lynn Jaxon lives with her husband and three children in Arkansas. She graduated in 1994 from the University of Central Arkansas. When she’s not writing, she is spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren, reading in a bubble bath or running with her crazy dog.

All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst

Release Date: July 23, 2019

Probst-AllRoadsLeadtoYou-28134-CV-FT-V3.jpg

All Roads Lead to You, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.

After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.

How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll only be there long enough to break it?

So Harper and Aiden agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.

amber review  5 Stars

I feel like I’ve been waiting for Harper’s story since I first met her in the first book of the Stay series, and the wait was so well worth it!! Jennifer Probst never fails to create such full and richly emotional characters. All Roads Lead to You may be the third in this series, but it’s a beautiful story all on it’s own no doubt!
Harper, Aiden, Phoenix and Captain Hoof are all the stars of this story. They are all broken in a way and all find their way together at the Bishop Farm.
Harper Bishop was a woman who knew her mind, what was important to her and didn’t need anything more. Too bad meeting Aiden O’Connor knocks everything off kilter and sets her down a path that seemed destined for them both. Watching Harper trust someone else besides her menagerie or her siblings was beautiful. Admitting what put the sadness in fear into her heart took a leap of faith, and it was so lovely watching her both fight her feelings and accept them at the same time.
I loved Aiden, his Irish brogue and his right to the point sensibility. But beyond that his way with the animals. How he connected with not only Phoenix but Figero, the cranky cat who really likes no one. The way he saved and named Captain Hoof, and complained (but secretly came to love that chicken costume). The passion he had for what he did as well as the passion he showed Harper.
Everything about this story spoke to my heart and brought out emotions. From the hijinks of the animals to seeing their new volunteer blossom, each page brought a new smile and sometimes a full on laugh. Seriously between Hei Hei going on attack, Captain Hoof and his chicken suit and the many animal love affairs; seeing these animals that were once discarded or mistreated find their happy was just as good as the human love. All Roads Lead to You was perfectly titled because in this story all roads led to happiness.

Excerpt:

Ignoring her tingling nipples and flip-flopping belly, she threw back her shoulders and rose to full height. “I clearly remember having this same conversation a few weeks ago,” she said, trying not to let her voice wobble. “We agreed to keep it strictly business.”

“We did. But it’s getting harder for me not to touch you.”

Her heart galloped in her chest. Sweat pricked her skin. She remained silent, tangled between her head and her heart.

A rough laugh escaped his lips. “This would be easier on my ego if you’d admit you’re having the same problem.”

She shook her head and pressed her fisted hands against her eyes. “You sure don’t know the art of subtlety, do you?”

He shrugged. “No time for that shit. Well?”

She let out a half laugh, half groan. “I think this is the strangest conversation I’ve had with a man.”

“Are you hot for me, Harper?” His voice was all grit and gravel and sexy as hell.

Lust speared through her, raw and hungry and demanding. “Yeah.”

“Good. I’m obsessed with kissing you. So I have a proposal.”

“Of course you do.”

“One kiss. Let’s try it out. Maybe it’ll bomb once we give ourselves permission,” he said.

“I’m swooning from your romantic intentions.”

His lips kicked up in a grin. She wanted to trace her finger over his mouth to see if it was as soft as it looked. “Sorry. What do you think?”

“I think I’ve stepped into a new dimension. Tell me this, Irish. Do we want the kiss to bomb?”

He nodded. Eased closer. “I think it would be for the best. Neither of us wants a complication in our solid business partnership. We have a long road ahead of us. Sex makes things messy.”

Her brow shot up. Oh, he was good. Pretending to be all rational and cool while he stalked her like a graceful panther. Her blood grew thick and heavy, and the throbbing between her thighs raged. The real problem revolved around one simple, plain fact.

She was dying to kiss Aidan O’Connor.

Just once.

The tiny voice inside her flared to life and whispered a warning.: One kiss will never be enough. Not from this man. Not with the way you already feel about him.

God, she didn’t want to listen to reason right now.

Harper tilted her head. “True. If the kiss fails, we can get back to work without all this bullshit. Move on and focus on the real relationship here.”

“Phoenix,” he said.

“Exactly. Can you promise one thing?”

He took a few more steps. His scent wrapped around her like a silken cloud, spicy and clean and addicting. The leashed heat from his body practically ripped a purr from her throat. She curled her fingers, digging her nails into her palms to try and hold back from jumping into his arms.

“What do you need me to promise, love?”

A shiver worked down her spine. She imagined that lilting brogue whispering dirty commands in her ear while he thrust deep inside her. “If the kiss sucks, no hurt feelings. We move on and don’t talk about it. I can’t take any weirdness between us.”

“Agreed. I hate weird.”

He was right there, face close, inches from her body. The last time he was this close, he was angry. This time, his eyes crackled with hunger. His powerful thighs braced hers, and when he leaned in, his hard erection pressed against the seam of his jeans so she felt every glorious inch of promise. She licked her lips in anticipation, and slowly raised her arms to hook around his shoulders.

“Just once,” she whispered in warning.

He cupped her cheeks with rough, calloused palms. His amber gaze locked on hers. “Yes.”

“We’ll get it out of our system and move on.”

“Harper?”

“Yeah?”

“Shush.”

His mouth closed over hers.

You never know where your life will lead. Mine led me to a man who abused me. Who hurt me. Who destroyed everything I was. I never thought I’d be whole again.
Love is something my friends have, not me. I thought it was unattainable. Until I met Finn.
He knows of my past. He’s held me through my nightmares. I’ve never met someone so kind and patient.
Where I escape is into the arms of Finn where everything in my world finally feels right again.

LINE 39

Lena gave up on life and abandoned her dreams of a happily-ever-after when a freak accident took her eye, most of her vision, and left her scarred. Her only reason for living now is to make her terminally-ill father believe otherwise.
Rue is blinded by the beauty of Casterton’s newest resident, but he can’t work up the nerve to approach her. Sadly, he notices her leaving Carol’s every week with a bouquet of flowers from someone who obviously has the courage he lacks.
Lucky for them, a happy-go-lucky golden retriever puppy helps them both to see what’s right in front of their faces.

The Way We Fell

Ben and Kendall, part one.
(Brand new part of the Legacy world)
One brilliant smile, and my heart beat for what felt like the very first time.
One night as he held my sister and sang to her, it broke.
Years later, his smile is different, and I curse my heart when it beats in an all too familiar way, a way it’s only ever beat for him… again.
He was once hers, could he ever truly be mine?

Rebecca Brooke

Ring Me

I am not a bully.
At least not anymore. I’d learned my lesson even before I had all my dreams ripped away.
Then I saw her. I knew I wanted her to be mine.
I made so many mistakes, but she let me in and gave me her heart.
Now I want to keep it forever.
How do I ask the woman of my dreams to spend the rest of her life with me? Simple, just ask.
At least I thought it would be that easy.

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever encountered walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

amber review 5 Geekery Stars

 

I. Loved. This. Book!! The Shacking Up world keeps getting better and Helena Hunting is obviously loving creating these characters!

Griffin Mills is a suit. He’s also sweetly awkward and an alpha male with a sometimes filthy mouth. He’s tired of staying in his box, because that hasn’t really made him happy til now.

Cosy Felton is a free-spirited gypsy of sorts. She’s also driven and focused and tells it like it is. She’s independent because she has to be, and for as young as she is, she’s really an old soul.

These two are in totally different places in life. They wouldn’t seem to have anything in common. Except they connect on a level neither of them expects or knows how to fight. And let me tell you, it was fantastic!! With humor, so much passion, some good dirty talk and a few twists and turns Making Up May be May new favorite in the series!

Add in some supporting characters like Cosy’s sister, Nevah. Man I didn’t think I’d like her because to say she’s a trip doesn’t even begin to cover it, but I ended up totally wanting her story! And Cosy has a friend/coworker named Helix that was too funny. Oh and let’s now neglect getting our first glimpse of Griffin’s bff, Lincoln Morehead. Or how about catching up with the other Mills’ brothers, Bancroft and Lex? Good times all.

Definitely a rocking good read!! Made my Geekery heart happy!!

Releasing September 24 an all new trilogy set in the Big Sky World.
The Big Sky Royals are here, starting with Sebastian in…




 
 
Synopsis
Turning thirty-five doesn’t mean much to most men. For Sebastian Wakefield, it’s the end of life as he knows it.
When your father is the King of England, thirty-five is the year that a marriage will be arranged, a suitable bride cementing a future you didn’t choose. The obvious solution for escaping the archaic laws of the throne is for Sebastian to leave the country. And where better to go than America?
Nina Wolfe has spent her career avoiding scandal. As a Hollywood publicist and minor celebrity in her own right, she knows exactly what it takes to keep the media at bay—and what will send them into a frenzy.
Prince Sebastian hiding out in Cunningham Falls, Montana is an unlikely story. Ending up in his bed, even more so. And keeping their arrangement out of the press might just be impossible. The ring on her finger is about to spark a firestorm that will change her life, and no professional spin will help Nina fit into the world of royalty.
Only love could write an enchanting new beginning—if they’ll let themselves fall.

About Kristen Proby
 
Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series. 

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two cats.

Meredith~
I wasted eight years of my life on a marriage that was doomed from the start. My ex-husband only married me for my family name and money. Now that the divorce is final, I’m ready to move on focusing on providing a happy life for our son. When my friends insisted they take me out to celebrate my new found freedom, I reluctantly agreed.
I should have asked where we were going. I never imagined we’d end up in a male strip club. I was ready to leave before we walked through the doors. That is until I locked eyes with a masked dancer. His green eyes bored into me, owning me with just one look. Then when our hands touched, he made me feel things I’d never felt, and want things I’d never dared to dream.
Just when my dream seemed like it was coming true, my worst nightmare became my reality. My divorce was just a useless piece of paper, and I’m afraid that not even love will be able to save me.
Nash~
I can’t believe I’m doing this. Never did I ever think that this would be me. I’m an elementary school assistant principal, not a male dancer. I have to keep reminding myself that I’m doing this for my brother. I’m helping him keep his job.
That’s the only thing that’s getting me through this night. That is until I lock eyes with the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. Long blonde hair, expressive blue eyes, and a body that would bring any man to his knees. Going into it I never thought this night would change my life and hers so profoundly.
I have my work cut out for me. There is more than just our love at stake. I’ll put everything on the line to save her, and convince her that she’s more than just a name.

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
