Blitz: Fiancé for the Night by Melissa McClone

She needs a fiancé—for only one night.

Cassandra Daniels’ parents refuse to accept that she doesn’t need a boyfriend to be happy. To stop their meddling and matchmaking, Cassandra creates a fictional fiancé, a man who sounds so unlike their carefree and unconventional daughter that her mom and dad want to meet him for dinner, immediately.

No problem. San Francisco is a big city. Finding a fiancé won’t be that hard.

All Troy McKnight wants is a beer after a long day at work. But when a pretty blonde asks him to dinner and wants him to pretend to be her fiancé, Troy agrees to help. Playing make-believe could be fun, especially since he gets a free meal, and he’ll have a great story to tell.

When one lie leads to another, however, the fake engagement spirals into real wedding plans. Cassandra and Troy must stop the madness and put an end to their charade. But what if her fiancé for the night is the perfect husband for life?

** This second edition has been rewritten and updated. 8000 words have also been added. **

Tour & Giveaway: Safe House by Traci Hunter Abramson



Safe House by Traci Hunter Abramson.
Audience/Genre: Adult, Fiction.
Publication: October 1st 2018 by Covenant Communications.
The guardians, the shadowy heroes of the top-secret program designed to protect members of the most elite government organizations, are being hunted down one by one. There is a single explanation: a traitor must be embedded somewhere in their midst. But if they themselves are the target, who will protect them?

CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she's never really believed in their existence—until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade—one of the last guardians standing—is unimpressed with Renee's qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more—but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is a nonstop action, mystery, thriller, romance, and adventure rolled up in one awesome book!

Our characters are all smart and not afraid to get there hands dirty or go into dangerous situations. They are all skilled in different areas of government. There are SEAL’s, CIA, FBI, NSA and the secret group called the Guardians. The guardians have access to all databanks. They are all ghosts or rather the world thinks they are dead and there are death certificates if you don’t believe it. But someone is killing off the members of this group. The guardians go into and protect those in trouble. And my job as the reader was to guess where this was going to go next or who could be targeting them. We are given a clue in the beginning and we are lost at the mercy of the author for more clues. I would fail if I were in any of these groups. Haha!

Renee is CIA. She is smart but she has never been out in the field, only trained for it. She gets pulled into the guardian mess to help figure out who is killing them one by one. Renee is in until she becomes the target. Now she is being protected and is under the watchful eye of Kade or Ghost as those in the world call him. He doesn’t want her help but once she becomes the target, he will protect her at all costs. There is some chemistry between the two. Kade fights it as eventually she will go her own way and he will never be free to have a life outside of what he does. Renee's heart didn’t get that memo!

I loved the Saint Squad and their families. I think they are in another book of the authors and I might have to go and read about them.

The action really is nonstop and I felt like I had whiplash trying to keep up! Don’t think you can figure it out, because there are a few curve balls thrown in there and you keep finding yourself striking out at guessing!

If you like action, adventure, mystery, guns, government secrets, good vs evil, a little romance, family, secrets, and doing what is right then this might be for you!

Tour & Giveaway: Premonition (The Division #1) by Leigh Walker



Tour Schedule


Premonition (The Division #1) by Leigh Walker.
Audience/Genre: YA Sci-fi/Romance.
Publication: July 19th 2017 by CMG Publishing.
For fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent...this exciting new science-fiction romance series, filled with twists and turns, will take you for a wild ride!

When Riley heads off to boarding school for a summer work-study program, she knows it'll be demanding. What she doesn't expect? To be thrust into an intense physical training program described as special, exclusive and worst of all--top-secret. She signed up for tuition assistance, not to be held in a secret government facility for boot camp...

Welcome to The Division, the government agency that's so classified, most United States senators have never heard of it.

The Division wants Riley bad, but she can't figure out why. Skeptical of what she's being told, Riley's determined to uncover the truth. Boot camp is intense, physically and mentally draining. The upside? One of her new teammates is the cutest boy ever. Watching Finn hit the gym wearing a tank top doesn't suck--although sometimes his brooding attitude does. But when training forces Riley to confront her tragic past, even Finn's big biceps aren't enough to make her want to stay...

Beware: The Division isn't something you just walk away from. You better run.

Riley realizes her capabilities and strengths are greater than she'd ever imagined. But she also learns she wasn't just chosen for this special program...

She was made for it.

Reviewed by Kelly.

The summary pretty much sums up the book. The story is action packed with lots of questions and answers sprinkled along on Riley’s journey.

Riley’s mother is an alcoholic. It started after her sister and father died in an automobile accident. Riley is extremely bright and got into what she thought was a boarding school. It was a front for The Division, a secret government group that trains these kids with “gifts” to fight terrorism on American soil. At first Riley thinks they are all crazy but then she finds her own gift. But with each day comes more knowledge of what is going on and now she can’t leave. She is owned by the government.

This first book of the series is well written, it’s believable. As the reader, we are like Riley, mostly clueless and given pieces of information at a time. It keeps you wanting to read more, find out more. There is lots of action, a sprinkle of romance, embarrassment for Riley, and a kick butt team of teenagers with different gifts.

My only negative is that the summary does sum it up. There is very little in way of spoilers since the discovery of who she is is in the summary. It only leads up to that moment. Of course, now I want to know what are they going to do next and how are they going to help stop terrorism and try to be the individual self that they each are when the government knows everything about them and where they are and their emotions!

If you like action, science fiction, government conspiracies, teens with powers, a little romance, broken families, and nonstop physical and mental training then this might be for you.

Tour: Topaz Reign (Altered Stones, #2) by Teresa Richards

Emerald Bound (Altered Stones, #1) by Teresa Richards.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retellings.
Publication: September 29th 2015 by Evernight Teen.
A princess, a pea, and a tower of mattresses. This is the sliver that survives of a story more nightmare than fairytale... Maggie Rhodes, high school junior and semi-reformed stalker, learns the tale's true roots after a spying attempt goes awry and her best friend Kate ends up as the victim of an ancient curse. At the center of the curse lies an enchanted emerald that has been residing quietly in a museum for the past fifty years. Admirers of the gem have no idea that it feeds on life. Or that it's found its next victim in Kate. Enter Lindy, a school acquaintance who knows more than she's letting on, and Garon, a handsome stranger claiming he knows how to help, and Maggie is left wondering who to trust and how to save her best friend before it's too late. If only Maggie knew her connection to the fairy tale was rooted far deeper than an endangered best friend.

Reviewed by Kelly.

Fast paced, action and adventure, a story retelling with chemistry too!!!

I was very intrigued when I started this book. I had so many questions and there was a lot of action and adventure! I was all in! I was hooked!

I liked Maggie. Her family dynamics are like many families. Her friends are the best and most loyal to her and it gave me a glimpse of how if one friend is gone how much it may affect you!

The time travel and magic mixed with someone from the 1600's and today make for a very interesting story! The writing is amazing too!!

Sorry, I am not writing a lot about this book. I need to jump right into Topaz Reign to see what happens next! And it has to do with another gem! Sorry, this one is about an emerald as the book says. I'm in a hurry to get to the next book........



Topaz Reign (Altered Stones, #2) by Teresa Richards.
Publication: September 29th 2017 by Evernight Teen.
Fairy tales are simply tales, told and re-told, but changed over time.

It has been four months since Maggie learned the dark truth behind the tale of the Princess and the Pea and freed Princess Lindy from the cursed Emerald. Lindy is now back in the past where she belongs, queen of her tiny Scandinavian country, and Maggie is a fully reformed ex-stalker.

Except … she can’t stop doing internet searches on Lindy and her country.

One morning, Maggie wakes to find history turned on its head. Apparently, you can’t destroy a centuries-old curse without consequence. In order to prevent the changes in history from wiping out the present, Maggie resurrects her stalking gene and learns that fairy tales don’t stay dead for long.

Or at all.

Back in 1623, Lindy is juggling a threat to her family, a handsome new guard she’s not supposed to have feelings for, and a cursed Topaz with ties to the tale of Thumbelina. When past and present collide, Lindy and Maggie are brought together again, and another of Andersen’s tales turns from twisted fiction to chilling fact.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is an action packed fairytale retelling with adventure and romance! Your mind is constantly trying to figure out what will happen next. And although it takes place mostly in the 1600’s, it also houses advanced physics so it makes it harder to guess what will happen. That hooked me in because I couldn’t guess! I was captivated!

Maggie and Tanner (Maggie’s brother) end up going to visit where their dead mother grew up. Only to find her very much alive. She is a shell of her former self. When they confront their grandmother about it and Maggie does what she normally does best, snooping, they find some very strange things. Then Garon (Maggie’s sort of boyfriend) shows up with more pieces to a puzzle and then, Maggie and Tanner go back into time with Garon to try and fix things. Their adventure is like a rollercoaster with so many ups and downs, that I almost got sick trying to keep up with it. Ha! There is action, adventure, love found, allegiances lost, dark magic, physics, fighting, climbing, genealogy, actions that changed the future and more.

I was a little sad at the end. I didn’t like how it ended but there really wasn’t a better way. I get it, but it was still sad for me!

About the Book


Blurb


TheGoblinsOfBellwater

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.

Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister Livy is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract.

Then Kit starts dating Livy, and Skye draws Kit’s cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods. Skye and Grady are doomed to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever, unless Livy, the only one untainted by enchantment, can unravel the spell by walking a dangerous magical path of her own.

Excerpt


They had carried Skye up, up, up the trunks into a fantastically weird bunch of cobbled-together houses and bridges and mismatched dim electric lights that they had built all around a huge swath of evergreens. A treetop village, but its surfaces slimier and its inhabitants more disgusting than any of the fantasy fairylands Skye used to envision. Somehow she understood she could only see the place because she had taken their path and eaten the blackberry tart. She also understood that although she had only been carried a few hundred yards off the road, she was now almost totally out of reach of regular humans.

“You love these trees, yes?” their leader had said. Skye gathered her name was Redring.

“Yes.” Skye couldn’t lie, her tongue answering as if under some honesty potion. She still lay in the arms of half a dozen goblins, their prickly hands clamped all over her body.

“And you wanted to see us. You accepted our invitation. We are so flattered, darling one.” Redring leaned closer, her foul breath spilling across Skye’s face. “Some we would simply steal from, and leave to fall apart, but not you. You we would like to keep.”

“Me. I want her,” another goblin said, bulling his way in against Redring’s shoulder. Or at least, Skye assumed it was a he. His voice was deeper and his gaze upon Skye more lustful—it made her shudder, but all she could do was avert her eyes.

Redring shoved him. “Be patient, Slide!” She grinned at Skye again and softened her voice. “You see, there is a procedure for this. You will go home again, but eventually you will come to us.”

Someone shoved another sticky bite of food into Skye’s mouth: orange marmalade. She grimaced, but her obedient enchanted mouth chewed and swallowed it.

“You will want to,” Redring continued.

A different goblin crammed what tasted like musty mince pie into her mouth. She swallowed that too.

“You will lose your way in the human world.”

Another stuffed her mouth with stale cake with raspberry filling, gelatinous and with too many seeds. Tears of despair ran down her temples, yet she ate it.

“You will come to the woods and choose your mate.”

“Me!” the gruff goblin shouted, while someone smashed a handful of candied cherries into Skye’s mouth.

“Shut up!” Redring told him, and the others cackled. “She called to us, so she gets to choose. Besides, it’s more fun, watching to see who she picks.” She turned to Skye again. “And when you have withered enough among the humans, you will join us here. You will become goblin.”

Tour & Giveaway: For Love or Honor (The Jonquil Brothers #5) by Sarah M. Eden



For Love or Honor (The Jonquil Brothers #5) by Sarah M. Eden.
Audience/Genre: Historical Romance.
Publication: October 1st 2017 by Covenant Communication.
From the moment they met, Marjie’s heart has belonged to handsome Captain Stanley Jonquil, younger brother of the Earl of Lampton. But six long months ago, when Stanley’s sense of honor required that he do as he had sworn and return to the Continent to fight in defense of King and country, neither Stanley nor Marjie could have dreamed what the cost of his service would be. It has been ages since Stanley last wrote, and Marjie and the Jonquil family are plagued by his unknown fate—until the day he unexpectedly reappears. Marjie’s joy, however, is quickly shadowed by confusion—the aloof, battle-worn soldier before her is not the man he once was. In the wake of Stanley’s blatant disinterest in renewing their acquaintance, Marjie’s devastation turns to determination as she vows to help him find peace. But his scars run far deeper than anyone realizes. Despite his feelings for her, Stanley believes Marjie deserves a man whose hands are not stained with the violence of battlefields and whose mind and heart are not haunted by the horrors he has seen. Honor requires Stanley to return once more to the life he has grown to despise, one he knows will destroy him in the end, even as his heart beckons him to stay with Marjie, the only woman he could ever love, and the promise, at last, of redemption.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is one of my all time favorite books now! I sobbed through the last half and couldn’t write a review for awhile because I would start up with the tears again! I read this book in one sitting and I stayed up till 3 am reading it straight through! If I could I would give it 10 stars! I don’t even know if I can give this book a review it deserves!

Marji is just one of those people who just makes the world shine! She is caring and helpful! She fusses over everyone and it terribly bothers her disabled sister. Her sister was in an accident and has had broken bones and hip issues and is in constant pain. But her sister doesn’t want to be fussed over. Marji is also deeply in love with Stanley Jonquil. She writes him while he is away at war. And although she has not received one letter from him, she has faithfully written him every week anyway. He has been away for awhile, so it is a surprise when he just shows up one day at the doorstep of Philip Jonquil’s home (also Marji’s sister’s husband), where his mother and Marji also live.

Stanley has been in the war and was at Waterloo and has seen terrible atrocities. It haunts him. He is only home to recover and then he is to be recalled. The letters from Marji is what has kept him alive all this time. He also has come back with a broken body. He will not reveal what is wrong with him to anyone. He will not talk about it. He tries to avoid everyone. But his family picks up everything and eventually the truth comes out to not only them but to the reader as well. We only can tell something is wrong at first. Marji is the first to find out what is wrong with his right hand. Her reaction is utterly sweet and caring. Then Marji takes it one step further by making sure his whole family know about it, not because she wants them to see it but because it needs to heal. She secretly removes all the gloves for his right hand and the buttons for the right side of his jacket. This makes Stanley very mad! He has no choice but to move forward for dinner that night, although he tries to keep his hand hidden. The first one to notice his hand was his innocent niece. Her reaction is so like a child and I sobbed and sobbed and went thru several kleenex before I could read again! Oh the innocence of a child! It just tears your heart wide open! And this excerpt is just a portion of that scene...

"I am glad your hurt is better," Stanley whispered. He breathed through a sudden surge of emotion. He had made very certain that her hurt would never amount to his. "Mama loved it all better," Caroline said. "If you stay, Stanby, your hurt will get better too." His vision blurred with the sting of tears he refused to shed. He wanted to believe that there was a cure. "I can love you bigger that the biggest hurt." "That is a great deal of love, Poppet." Stanley tightened his grip on her.
She lifted both her little hands to his face, touching his cheeks. "There are so very many of us," Caroline whispered, leaning in close to his face. "We can love you all better." She ran her palm along his cheek, wiping away a tear that had escaped his eye. She wrapped her arms around his neck and leaned into him.

Meanwhile, the Jonquil brothers have this game and are close enough that they make an intervention on Stanley’s behalf. Oh, I was laughing here! I love those brothers and I need to go back and read the first few stories about them.

Stanley believes he can’t have Marji with his mind and body so messed up and that he is about to be called back into duty. Stanley believes in honor and his duty to serve is forever even though he despises it and his body isn’t capable of being on the front line anymore. When we get to near the end my heart was breaking for Stanley and Marji. He loves her and she him but he will not have her come with him, it is not for the “fairer sex”. Marji is heartbroken but her body and Stanley’s too find it hard not to be near each other with a touch here and a kiss there! It is torture for not only them but me as a reader as well. I can see no way for them to be together. And I was crying again over how the ending was going. They love each other darn it and they need each other and I was heartbroken for them. But you will have to read it to see how it ends yourself.

If you like wounded war heroes, kissing in the rain, loving families, terrible parents for others, selfless people, duty and honor, really really good writing, innocent children, love, this might be for you. Wait this book is for everyone, it is perfect and gives you all kind of emotions and thoughts and makes you feel good inside!!!!

Blitz & GIveaway: This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell


This Baby Business
Heatherly Bell
(Heroes of Fortune Valley)
Published by: Harlequin
Publication date: October 1st 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Strictly business…or is it?

Air force pilot Levi Lambert has seen plenty of danger—but his infant daughter might be the death of him. Fortunately, Levi’s found the answer to his sleep-deprived prayers: his next-door neighbor! Carly Gilmore is willing to be his nanny…until a small white lie turns their arrangement from business to very personal. The fake engagement was intended to keep Levi from losing custody of his baby girl, but is causing all sorts of new problems. Not only does Carly attract trouble like bees to honey, but there’s the little matter of Levi’s smokin’-hot attraction to her. The last thing he needs is to fall in love…

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play


Carly sat on a chair in Stone’s office, streaks of mud on her chin, cheeks and nose. Blond hair wild and unruly. Short dress muddy. Even her sandals had been through the wringer. She looked like she’d been in a fight with a…well, a pig. Which told him two new things about this woman: she did not give up easily, or mind getting a little dirty in the process.
Good to know.
He wiped mud off her chin with the wet towel Emily had given her and bit his lower lip. “There’s an old saying. If you wrestle with a pig, you’ll get dirty. And the pig will only—”
She held up her index finger. “Don’t finish that sentence.”
He grinned.
“You’re enjoying this, aren’t you?” She grabbed his hand from where it was busy cleaning off her nose and brought it down.
He took control back, and went back to wiping at her cheeks. “Enjoy is probably not a strong enough word.”
“This is so embarrassing. Petunia was supposed to be trained, like a dog. That’s what her owner said.”
“You can take the pig off the ranch, but you can’t… I forgot how that one goes.”
“Thank God.”
“You’re pretty sexy when you’re mud wrestling, you know?”
“How can you laugh about this? I looked like a fool in front of the Lanes. That can’t be good.”
“Nah, you just looked like someone who takes her responsibilities seriously.”
“That’s what I was going for.”
“I’d say you got it done.”
She brought his hand down again, and this time he allowed it. “Thanks for taking care of me like a good fiancé might do.”
“No worries, though I don’t think they noticed me bring you inside. They’re with Cassie and Grace now.”
“So no one saw us come in here?”
“Don’t think so. Matt’s washing twice the number of pets right now, which is fine with me.”
“If I haven’t said it enough, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make life harder for you, pretending to be my fiancé. I should have considered you might be interested in, or dating someone else. It was shortsighted of me, I know. I just…reacted. I’m really sorry.”
“Being your fake fiancé is not the worst thing to ever happen to me.” Not even the second or third, but he wasn’t going there.
“Were you dating anyone here?”
Seemed like a crisis of conscience had overcome Cute Stuck-Up Girl. Cute Sexy, now. “A coffee date with Lily Hamilton. I was supposed to call and follow up for dinner.”
She closed her eyes, then opened them again. “Lily. She’s so nice. I’m so sorry, Levi.”
“It wasn’t a thing. And you should know, anyway, after you and I kissed, I had no intention of calling her. I haven’t had time to…date. Or anything.” And it had been far too long without the or anything. Also not going there.
“Me, too. I think I forgot how to act around someone of the opposite sex.”
His gaze heated. “You did fine the other night on the couch.”
She coughed. “Yeah. Thanks.”
“What’s wrong? You don’t normally wrestle a pig in front of a guy? Because that can be a mating call in some countries.” He managed to keep a straight face.
She rolled her eyes at him. “No. I don’t have the most stellar history with men.”
“Get out. My fiancée? How did you catch me, then?”
She didn’t laugh. “I wouldn’t normally go out with a guy like you, anyway. Guys like you don’t go for girls like me.”
“Guys like me?”
“I know I’m not sexy, or anything.”
“Yeah, you are,” he said. “Otherwise, I don’t think we’d be engaged.”
“That isn’t funny.”
“It’s a little funny.
