St. Fleur #3
Contemporary Romance | Interracial Romance

Everyone leaves…
Jaime Lynn has lived by that mantra all of her life. After opening a pub in St. Fleur, she begins to root herself into the town and its community, questioning the only attitude she has ever known. When Jesse interviews for the open bartending position, she knows hiring him is a bad decision she’ll make anyway. Giving in to their powerful attraction, she accepts his invitation to explore what’s between them—and is reminded that not everyone gets their happily ever after.

Haunted by the memories around his hometown of New Orleans, Jesse leaves everyone he knows and loves, hoping to find a sliver of peace. Jaime Lynn turns out to be the light to his dark, bringing Jesse away from his nightmares and back to his hopes and dreams.
When the truth comes out, Jesse and Jaime Lynn agree to give their relationship another try. The stars finally align, guiding them onto a new path where they can leave their past behind them.
What will they do when Jesse learns about the gift he never received but always wanted?

Stood up Teaser
Girls Night Teaser


Jesse’s eyes flew open as he released himself and moved to a protective stance. “What are you doing here?”

His gaze moved down her body in a caress. She saw the flash of pleasure before he put up walls to protect himself from her hurtful inaction and words. Unable to speak, her mind was jumbled over Jesse’s naked form and the fact that he had been pleasuring himself. Jaime Lynn stepped into the spray and Jesse moved back. His back hit the wall with nowhere to go.

Jaime Lynn took in his body, the muscles covering his chest and arms down to his sculpted abs. His beautiful, thick length stood proudly as her eyes roved down his thighs to where wiry, black hair covered his legs.

Confusion flashed over his face, replacing the desire in his gaze, as he repeated, “What are you doing here, Jaime Lynn?”

Nerves froze her in place, the words right on the tip of her tongue. No matter the limbo state of their relationship, Jesse was a constant in her life. They may have danced around their attraction for far too long, but the idea of him not being there at all scared the crap out of her. There really was no one else she was willing to risk her heart for.

Author to Widower’s Aura, Always Mine, Duplicity, and Finding love at the falls…. I’m a military wife and mother to three girls seven and under. Prior to these roles I lived in Florida where I attended the University of Central Florida. I received my Masters of Science in Criminal Justice and Bachelors of Science in Psychology. A decade later and I haven’t used either.

Writing a book was never a goal of mine, funny how life works out sometimes. I thought I would work for one of the many agencies that specialize in justice. Instead I decided to focus on a family once we married.

When I’m not shuttling my daughters around, you can find me at my laptop. I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Since we were driving cross country I downloaded a couple of audio books. I was able to finish this one and it was GREAT! Today’s book recommendation is Cree by HJ Bellus. If you’re an audio book lover I enjoyed this one. The story flowed well and kept me engaged.


**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

Hey Hoochies! I’m Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its!

I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a ’66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever.

I found Cree…

A pirate with a little princess and they swept me off my ever lovin’ feet, filling my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again.

They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear.

But the truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right.

All it takes is one final blow to the gut to end everything…

Vacation time…

Hey everyone!

If you’ve been following me across social media you know that we are in the middle of our move. Right now we are in Florida enjoying some long overdue family time. We haven’t been “home” in four years. So many things have changed since we were last in our old stomping grounds.

The long drives were hard to get here, but hot damn did our girls do great! We stopped in New Orleans briefly to see my godparents and cousins. Let me say… aging sucks. I’m so glad I got to see them though. Life is so short and things change in a blink of an eye.

We visited my sister in Clearwater, an aunt in Tampa, went to the beach and Busch Gardens and I even got to meet my editor in person for her 30th birthday party. That was all in a matter of THREE days! Came back to my mom’s and saw a few more people and tomorrow we head out to Melbourne to hang out with one of my sister in laws and my mother in law. We plan on more beach time too (may have to leave my very sunburned husband at home though.)

My car is in the shop today so we are stuck since I was too lazy to remove the car seats. When 2 of the 3 are a pain in the ass you wouldn’t bother either. On the plus side, I’ve been able to catch up on my work. I have some books I owe a few readers in envelopes and ready for me to head to the post office.

I also got to really check out those latest reviews as well. Everyone who’s posted a review thus far on Duplicity has enjoyed it and that makes my heart happy. I was really nervous over that one.

If you haven’t caught up on the St. Fleur series head over to Amazon and grab your copy HERE!

Well as always, I love to hear from my readers so comment below or message me in a variety of ways found over on my Contact me page.

Have a great week! Happy reading!

Christmas in July anyone?

Well here is a Christmas Novella to ease your holiday blues! This one is a fast, insta-love. Ms. Keyes gives you a taste of Christmas romance and you’re able to get a feel for her writing in this story.

My Amazon review:

It’s the first book from this author that I have read and I really enjoyed it. It was a quick and romantic read. Love at first sight, kind of story, with two broken individuals drawn together by their pain. I love sweet romantic stories with a happily ever after and this delivered.

one wish janae keyesYou get one wish, what do you wish for?

Melanie Morris has freshly filed for divorce, and she can’t bare the thought of spending Christmas surrounded by her nosey family. It might be the last Christmas she can spend in the holiday home she and her estranged husband own in the Sierra Nevada. Melanie’s one wish is never to feel alone as she had during her marriage.

The snow is coming down, and it is Christmas Eve. Electrician Hunter Ripley isn’t in the Christmas spirit and wants to clock out and spend the evening with his feet up, and a beer in his hand, forgetting the memories of his late wife. Hunter’s one wish is to find peace in the past as he works to move on.

One last call comes in, and Hunter is up to bat when he’s called to an elaborate holiday cabin. With the heat out and the snow coming down, Melanie and Hunter have to make due until the snow clears. Will their wishes come true this Christmas?

This weeks Sweet and Sinful Saturday Read goes to a book written by a woman whom I had not even heard of (*gasp*) until #RT16. Now I am kicking my ass for not knowing who I was talking to and jumping all over her work. Who might you ask was this? None other than the wonderful A.L. Jackson.

Since meeting her I have read A Stone in the Sea. What a wonderful story! I need to get back to that series! I will admit I haven’t read past that one, mainly because I have so many books in line.

I recommend that you not ONLY read this novel, but clear your schedule because if the rest are like the first you are going to want to binge read these. I’ll probably reread this one before diving into the others. We ALL love refreshing ourselves with awesome story-lines and this one is not an exception. Don’t forget to come back and tell me what you thought!

A Stone in the SEaSunder lead singer Sebastian Stone is no stranger to trouble.

It follows him wherever he goes.

From his track record, he should have known Shea Bentley would be a problem. But the soft, innocent Southern girl was all he could see. All he wanted to see. Now they’re both drowning in a sea of desire, sinking hopelessly into a world of lust, and their passion refuses to let them up for air.

No matter how much he wants that to be enough…Shea has an inescapable past. One she would do anything to keep running from.

But some secrets never die.

If her history is dragged from the depths, it could tear his world apart. He has to decide if she’s worth fighting the tide or if they should just sink like a stone in the sea.

A Stone in the Sea is Book One in Shea & Sebastian’s two-part Duet.

Hey! I hope you’ve been getting in some reading time. Maybe on the beach or pool. Hell, maybe you’re hidden in a pantry as you escape your kids during summer break. No judgement here. Let me get to today’s recommendation…

The Incidental Affair by K.S. Marshall was a great debut novel. I’m looking forward to reading her latest release, Losing Her. I’ll admit that I had moments where I wanted to reach into my tablet and shake the characters around. To me this is a sign of great writing. The story flowed and had me engaged. Make sure to give her a shot.

incidental affairWaking up naked isn’t a bad thing.
Unless you’re next to a virtual stranger — in your boyfriend’s house.
I had no idea how we ended up naked in the first place.
He was just supposed to be my coworker — my sexy, off limits coworker.
But I’m having flashbacks of the wicked things that perfect mouth of his was capable of,
and now I’m curious to find out more…


She doesn’t remember a thing about last night,
But she asked me to stay.
I suppose I would have to jog her memory.
I sure as hell wouldn’t mind….I wanted her all to myself.


There’s no denying the hot chemistry brewing between Danielle and Drew,
but past and present might have more than enough to affect their future.

Title: Unfinished Business
Series: Bastards of Boston Novel 
Author: Carina Adams
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 26, 2017

The Bastards of Boston live in a world most don’t understand. They follow their own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents they protect, and the people they couldn’t save.

As president of the Bastards MC, Robert Doyle is the man behind it all. It’s his responsibility to keep his club safe, to be the smartest man in the room, and be ten steps ahead of everyone. He’d give everything he had, and sell his soul to the devil, to protect the ones he loves.

Until Rocker comes face-to-face with the pain he thought he’d buried. Old wounds are ripped open. Revenge consumes him. Once again he’s the teenager desperate to avenge his daughter’s murder and nothing else matters.

He calls me his angel, but the halo I wear caught fire a long time ago. There is no line I won’t cross, no law I won’t break. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I’ll happily burn.

When past and present collide, we’re in for one hell of a bumpy ride.

I felt my eyes widen. In my mind she was still just a girl, short and straight, all gangly arms and awkward movements that come with being a young teen. Somewhere over the last few years, she’d grown up.


I hesitated for a brief moment, stunned. This woman was nothing but trouble; tall, athletic, and beautiful enough to make even me notice her. For a moment I stared into her eyes, completely blown away. If I hadn’t known better, I would have sworn there was relief in those depths. Something I’d thought I’d lost stirred in my gut.
“Don’t touch me!” She sneered, trying to get free as I caught her and gripped her shoulders tightly. When she couldn’t break the hold, she glanced over my shoulder, her panic clear. “Where’s Matty?”


“Not here.”
“Let go!” She shoved at me again. “I need Matt, not you.”
“You’re in my club, little girl.” I growled back, pushing back anything but the irritation that my stress free night had gone to shit so quickly. “If you didn’t want to see me, you should have stayed in that cushy little apartment I pay out the ass for.”


Blue eyes narrowed as she tipped her head back and looked at me. Seeing my shiner, she raised an eyebrow, her nose wrinkled in disgust. “Someone finally gave you the beating you deserved? Sorry I wasn’t here for that.”


The strong scent of alcohol on her breath made me clench my fists. She winced as my fingers dug into her flesh, and it took every ounce of self restraint I had to loosen my grip. I took a deep breath and tried to control my rage. “You’ve been drinking.” It wasn’t a question.
Her eyes narrowed in crystal clear hatred as she jerked her head back. “Go to hell.”


“Already been there, Brat. Fought my way out. I’m still here. Explain to me why you are.”
“I told Tonka Truck,” she sent Tank’s back a seething look, “I’m here for Matty. I meant it.” Her hands planted themselves on my chest. “Get the fuck away from me before I start to scream and these guys,” she leaned her head toward the table, “give you another black eye.”
I laughed humorlessly at that. 


The stupid little girl was fucking clueless. She could scream all she wanted here and not one of the brothers us would step in to help her. She wasn’t at some college frat party where a good Samaritan was waiting to rescue the pretty damsel in distress. Tank and I were the closest things in this room, and if we were the ones causing the scene, everyone else would sit back, drink and watch.


“Let’s go!” I snapped.


Cris shook her head. “I’m not leaving. Not without…”
“Now!” I yelled, cutting off her words.
Her jaw set. “Fuck off. I’m not leaving.”
I’d had enough of her attitude and manipulation to last a lifetime. I wasn’t about to cause an even bigger scene with the drama queen in front of me, risk the chance that someone would figure out she was worth something. Her brother could deal with her shit. I was done. 


If Matt had been here, I would have stepped aside and let him handle her. Since he wasn’t, she was my responsibility. Fucking bullshit best friend code. But, I knew he’d do it for me.
I did the only thing I could. I grabbed her, threw her over my shoulder, and strode out of the club.


When fists starting pounding into my lower back, and she started demanding I put her down, my hand itched with the need to spank the jean covered ass on my shoulder. As we made our way outside, I hoped the anger and hatred coursing through my veins was clear on my face. If any patched member stepped in, I’d have no place to argue – I wasn’t their equal yet, I was still a guest in their club. 
A few brothers nodded my way, amusement clear, as I headed for the door, but no one tried to stop me. Thank Jesus. I wasn’t sure what I would have done if they had. Probably something dangerous and definitely something stupid. 
Once the brat realized that she couldn’t fight her way down, she did the only thing an immature child like her would – she tried to pants me. I knew when she was quiet for a moment too long that she was up to something. I thought she was going to give it one final push and try to break free, but when her hands moved to my back pockets, and she gave the denim one solid yank, I almost laughed.
Instead, I yanked on my waistband, barely keeping it around my hips, and gave her thigh a warning squeeze with my free hand. The whole city could see my blue Fruit of the Loom’s, and I still wouldn’t put her down until I’d safely deposited her ass in my truck. 


When she gave them another push, I snapped. “Cut the shit Cris.”


“Fuck off.”

I’m participating in this release blitz, but still love to bring y’all my normal posting. So in keeping with that theme, you will find my post and the release blitz with info below the horizontal line.
Earlier this month I had a giveaway on my FB page to introduce you to AJ Renee. I found her in the Booksurfer Blog and was hooked ever since. She writes contemporary romance and her third released today. Duplicity is about Jamie Lynn and Jesse. We have seen them go back and forth in the first two novels. Now it is their time to address the elephant in the room and come to terms with what they know in their hearts.
Jamie Lynn is a strong woman. AJ wrote a woman with a business, who has struggled, endured, and survived. As an adult, I love that while she had her insecurities, she was level-headed…

royal atlasLove struck me at the early age of five. The boy turned into a man, and I fell even deeper. Guy Webb had no idea my fragile heart belonged to him for so many years. He was too busy being my brother’s best friend and a star on the football field. He was my daydream, and consumed every single thought, but he was always one step from my reach.

Beartooth Ranch was our home. The rich ranch land raised us, fostered our laughs, losses, and even gained a new family member when Guy moved in for his sophomore year of high school.

I hid my love for years. But now he’s back. Guy Webb returned a broken soldier after serving his country all over the atlas. And now it’s my job to help him heal.

My family lost everything with his return and I can only hope I survive it.

Authors note…

Some may shy away from the “Aura” portion of this story, and while it does have a *dash* of the paranormal, it’s not how I would identify this novel. As many of those who’ve already read this story have said, it’s a small twist but that’s all. Widower’s Aura is a contemporary romance with both suspense and a dash of paranormal. If you’re unsure, please feel free to read the excerpts I’ve provided HERE.

It’s summer and I bet you’re reading like crazy! We’re prepping to hand the house over so I hope you’re getting more reading in than I’m getting. So for you, lucky person who DOES get to read, I want to recommend the first in Bella Andre’s Sullivan series, The Look of Love.

Read this one and fall in love with this huge and dynamic family. I haven’t found a novel of Bella Andre’s that I haven’t loved.

Let me know what you think!

Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is–until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love–and protect–her, but will she let him?

Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her–and every sinfully sweet caress–as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the only exception. And although Chase didn’t realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether…for Chloe’s heart.

Sweet and Sinful Saturday Reads…

Yay! Another weekend! Today’s Sweet and Sinful Saturday Reads goes to Julie Garwood’s Shadow Dance. So many readers and friends always ask who my favorite author is and hands down Julie Garwood is at the top of that list.

When I first started reading for fun I was encouraged to read her work. Shadow Dance is one of the contemporary romance novels that follows the Buchanan family. There are no words for my love of this story line.

Brother’s best friend. Suspense. Stubborn strong female.

It’s easily my favorite of the series of books that delve into the Buchanan family. If you want to start this series from the beginning pick up Heartbreaker. You’ll get your first glimpse into Noah, the hero in this novel in that story. Although, you could read it without the other.

Let me know what you think!

Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair–for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch–until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there’s “bad blood” between the couple’s clans, stemming from an ancient feud that originated in Scotland, and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Jordan has always led a cautious life and has used her intelligence and reason to become a successful businesswoman. So she is intrigued but skeptical of the professor’s claims that the feud has been kept alive by the grave injustices the Buchanans have perpetrated over the centuries. But when Noah Clayborne, a close family friend and a man who has never let a good time or a pretty girl pass him by, accuses Jordan of being trapped in her comfort zone, she determines to prove him wrong and sets out on a spontaneous adventure to the small, dusty town of Serenity, Texas, to judge the professor’s research for herself.

Maneuvering through a close-knit community in which everyone knows everyone else’s business, Jordan never anticipates the danger and intrigue that lie in her path, nor the threat that will shadow her back to Boston, where even in familiar surroundings, her life is at risk.

A powerful thug who rules by fear, a man who harbors a simmering secret, and an unexpected romance that pierces all defenses–beloved author Julie Garwood weaves these dazzling elements into a brilliant novel of romantic suspense. Shadow Dance is a searing tango of passion and peril.
