E-Book-Bursting with Love-2-WW-Rev of Rescued by Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders) by Melissa Foster-Ends 2/5

Monday, January 16, 2017



Addison and Jake--two more stubborn people you are not likely to meet. Both of them are players, intent on nothing more then one night stands. But the spark between them is instantaneous--but what will it take to get both of them to realize it. All they seem to do is argue and fight--unless they are making up. Addie can not let go of her insecurities and macho man Jake is not giving up! He is slowly but surely worming his way into Addie's heart.

She is bound and determined to go on a 10 hike on her own and nothing Jake can say can dissuade her. Will Jake end up going after her and how exactly does she react to that. Read the book to find out!


NEW RELEASE….

The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women's fiction.

In RESCUED BY LOVE...

As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself--and to him--that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.


When Jake's sister-in-law calls, concerned because she's been unable to reach her best friend, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind--will Addison be his first failed rescue?

YOU FELL IN love with Blue Ryder and Lizzie Barber in Seaside Summers, now follow their journey to find true love in SEIZED BY LOVE, the first book in the Ryder series.



Lizzie Barber runs a successful flower shop by day and secretly hosts the Naked Baker webcast at night to help pay for her younger sister’s education.

Blue Ryder fell hard for Lizzie Barber when he met her a year ago, and he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind since. Everything about the feisty little brunette, from her tight bod to her seductive smile, cuts straight to his heart. Though Lizzie has turned down every invitation he’s extended—Blue is not about to give up trying. 

Renovating Lizzie’s kitchen brings Blue further into Lizzie’s life, and the oven is not the only thing heating up. One night and one powerful kiss changes everything.

Claimed by Love, Book #2 The Ryders

Family law attorney Gabriella Liakos has one true love, Elpitha Island, where she grew up and hopes someday to return. But Elpitha is in financial ruins, and Gabriella will do anything to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

Duke Ryder is a savvy real estate investor set on making Elpitha into an exclusive resort. Unlike other investors, he's not scared of purchasing a property where one family has roots so deep they practically reach the ocean floor...until he meets his beautiful, stubborn, and enticing tour host―the daughter of the owner of most of the island.

Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island. Duke's powerful seduction draws Gabriella in, but can a savvy investor who's used to glamour and glitz, and a woman interested in preserving the culture she adores find a happily ever after together?

Chased by Love, Love in Bloom: The Ryders #3

Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don't. When she's awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America's hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she's beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft--but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he's just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker's private world. He's coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he's not likely to change--until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

It Was a Full Moon Last Night

Friday, January 13, 2017

© Stabio | Dreamstime.com - Moon

As I glanced out my window last night the above is approximately what I saw--that full moon looked spooky! At the time I didn't realize that today was a Friday the 13th. Am I superstitious--yes--to a large degree!! Even though I was born on a 13th and people try to tell me that it should be lucky for me--I have never found it so!! Not that it keeps me home hiding under the bed (although that is what I actually want to do)--strange and not so nice things happen to me. I'm not going to go into them-let's just say that my Dad died 13 days before my 16th birthday--50 years ago.

I have been very tired lately and have not been able to keep up with my blog like I normally do. The eye doctor is trying to find eye drops that will help alleviate the pressure in my eyes--the ones I am currently using seem to be making them worse. I go back in 2 weeks--I'll bet he changes them again. Meanwhile it is very difficult for me to sit at the computer for any length of time--it is actually painful.

Thus if I seem to be somewhat absent--I apologize!

E-Book-In Defiance-3 Winners WW-John W Mefford-Ends 2/5

Thursday, January 12, 2017



This is a page turner--you won't be able to stop reading wanting to know how this all turns out. This is the first in a new series by John W Mefford who never fails to please.

Ivy bears the scars of abuse or neglect from more foster homes then she cares to remember. The last was the absolute worst and she manages to escape. She has over come her past and holds a job helping other children in the foster care system. But deep inside she still has not really really let go of her past. Then the present becomes the past as Ivy tries to help a 10 year old. She also comes cross a girl very similar to her who is currently living on the streets.

Although this can be tough reading know that the ending has more then a shimmer of hope and a portend of what the author has in mind for the next book in this series. I hope it comes out soon!!

NEW RELEASE....

Author John W. Mefford introduces Ivy Nash in the second series of the Redemption Thriller Collection.

A volatile hostage situation at a foster home reaches a bitter end: shots are fired, some die, some live to tell a sordid tale. In the midst of the anguish and confusion is one child who will bear the scars of this unbelievable turmoil.

As a special investigator for Child Protective Services, Ivy Nash lives by one rule: she’ll do anything to fight for the wellbeing of children. Anything. Something that was never done for her. As a “system” kid, she spent time in seventeen foster homes. Seventeen.

Very quickly, the facts of the case are blurred…accusations of sibling abuse, connections to drugs. Nothing lines up, and authorities want it all to go away. Their target? A ten-year-old boy. Unrelenting in her pursuit to find the truth, Ivy and her new friend Cristina uncover alarming new information to pinpoint who is at the root of the crime.

But evil knows no boundaries. Shockwaves of her most horrific childhood memories erupt into the present, and Ivy knows that she's in the fight for her life.

Part of the Redemption Thriller Collection which includes the Alex Troutt Thrillers and the upcoming Ivy Nash Thrillers. While all of the novels can be read as a stand-alone, there is a connecting thread in the Redemption Thriller books that will be unveiled over time. For a more fulfilling reading experience, books should be read in order: Alex Troutt, and then Ivy Nash. More series will be added into the collection within the next year.

$20 PayPal-1-WW-Dead Lawyers Don't Lie-Mark Nolan-Ends 2/3

Wednesday, January 11, 2017


This is one of those novels that starts out slow and then picks up speed rapidly!! The characters are well developed--especially the Assassin (who is killing high profile lawyers-but why--and who is really behind all this) and war veteran Jake Wolfe and his war buddy--now a police officer. There are several stories within the main story. It gives a very good look at war veterans and what they encounter when they come home. It is also the story of a brave, highly intelligent and courageous war dog!

There are twists and turns galore in this book and I highly suggest you read it!!


A mysterious killer who calls himself The Artist is assassinating wealthy lawyers in San Francisco. When war veteran Jake Wolfe accidentally takes his picture during a murder, The Artist adds Jake to his kill list and he becomes a target in a deadly game of cat and mouse that only one of them can survive. How far would you go to protect your loved ones from a killer? Jake wants to leave his top secret, violent past life behind him. But the reluctant, flawed hero can't ignore his duty and his personal moral compass.

This gripping thriller is full of suspense, plot twists and surprises. It features a cast of interesting characters, including several strong-willed women, two wise-cracking San Francisco Police Homicide Inspectors, one highly intelligent dog, and a philosophical killer who shares Jake's admiration for Van Gogh paintings but still plans to kill him anyway. As Jake gets closer to unraveling a merciless conspiracy, his life gets turned upside down and the danger level increases, adding to the growing suspense. This entertaining page-turner starts out as a murder mystery and then shifts gears into a high-speed action thriller that takes you on a roller-coaster ride to the riveting ending. A good read for those who enjoy mysteries, suspense, action and adventure, vigilante justice, unique characters, witty dialogue and a little romance too. Now on sale in over a dozen countries around the world. Be the first among your friends to read it.

Fans of new Kindle Unlimited novels will be happy to know this book is one of the best financial thrillers in kindle unlimited books.

Readers are saying... 

"A life and death ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I stayed up half the night so I could finish this book." 



 "An action packed thriller from beginning to end! A cross between the action in the "Die Hard" movies, and the joking relationship between partners in the "Lethal Weapon" movies." 



 "I wish I could have given this book 10 stars--it is that good. If you like playing detective, you will love this book." 



 "This is the best action mystery book I have read. Mark Nolan is a hidden treasure."
