Praise:

Books and Tequila Blog – “Only Ever Yours is sweet and swoony.”

Closet Romance Reader – “Get ready for a bewitching tale of loss and love. Only Ever Yours was the latest epicness by Nikki Ash. It was emotional, enthralling, and hot!”

The Romantic Rush Blog – “Only Ever Yours delivers everything I’ve come to love about Nikki Ash’s story telling- tender feelings, swoony romance, sensational steam, and heartfelt sincerity, but yet it also surprises in unexpected ways.”

Blurb:

Camilla

Desperate times call for desperate measures—like pretending to be my best friend and posing as a millionaire’s escort for the night.

I thought I had nothing left to lose, only I didn’t take my heart into consideration. What started as a one-time date turned into so much more in the blink of an eye. Because Isaac is used to getting what he wants, and even after learning the truth, he wants me. Unconditionally. 

Even though my heart is on the line, I find myself falling in love with him. But all too soon, I learn that loving a powerful man like Isaac can be dangerous. And despite how careful he is with my heart, it’s still capable of breaking.

Isaac

From the moment we met, she’s taken up residence in my head and in my heart. I’ll do everything in my power to make her mine. But first, I need to secure a second date.

It’s more than chemistry. My parents had this too. She’s the one. Marriage, babies, forever… I want it all with her, and in return, I’ll give her the world.

When the unimaginable happens, love and loyalty are put to the test. But I’ll move heaven and earth to protect Camilla… even if it means breaking her heart.

What you can expect in Only Ever Yours:

  • Age gap (OM/YW)
  • Insta-attraction
  • Secret pregnancy
  • All the feels

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I’m not always a huge fan of ‘wealthy leading man’ stories but Only Ever Yours was a really great read that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Camilla and Issac were a great pairing. He was a good guy, very protective and exactly what Camilla needed. I really liked his character and how he cared for her from the get go. Yeah, it was insta-love but I’m good with that.
Camilla was beaten down but wasn’t for giving up. Her strength of character made her a great lead. I get her desire to do things in her own but also liked that when the chips were down she was prepared to accept help.

A few twists, some angst and a few very unlikeable characters added to this story. I loved the chemistry, connection and heat between our leads. Nikki Ash has a talent in this field and she hit the mark again with Only Ever Yours.

A solid 4* recommended read.

BLOG TOUR – Head Over Hooves (Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild #5) by Erin Nicholas

Head Over Hooves, a must read small town romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available today!

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?

This isn’t that story.

But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

Fall in love today!

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Another fun trip to Autre, this time with a Christmas vibe!!

I must admit, when we met Mr Ryan in the Hot Cakes series I wasn’t a fan of his at first…. but over time Erin has made me do a complete 180 on my feelings and I really liked him in Head Over Hooves.

He’s a fixer, can’t help but step in and help kinda guy (like an Iowa Mitch Landry!!) but he’s in Autre for a little fun and time away from responsibilities and is determined to not be ‘that guy’ for the time he’s there!! Until he runs into Rory!!!!

Rory Robbins, I loved her. Like Drew, she’s always there ready and willing to step in and help out, even though she’s got enough responsibilities of her own to get dealing with. The day she meets Drew she’s running around in a little dress that’s more skimpy sexy naughty elf than Santa’s little helper!!

Much as Drew is looking for a quick hot hookup, the draw between them is instant but they are looking for completely different things…. Or are they?!!?

Rory’s – absent until it suits him and not adverse to blackmailing his daughter to his benefit – father turns up and seriously puts a spanner in her plans for a settled life and a place in the Landry ‘family’ but for once it would appear she might not have to deal with him alone!!

I loved the laughs, heat, sense of family and belonging – that always comes with a visit to Autre – and all the nonsense that ensues when the Landry’s are involved. Rory & Drew were awesome together and I’m looking forward to catching up with them – and all the other crazy Cajun’s as the series continues.

Can’t wait for what Ms Nicholas has for us next!!!

Start the series of standalones today!

RELEASE BLITZ – Edge of Reality (Arrow’s Edge MC #5) by Freya Barker

Title: Edge of Reality

Series: Arrow’s Edge MC, #5

Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Description:

Horsepower and green thumbs meets justice and flip-flops.

I’m a late bloomer.

A geek, an introvert, an enigma, and a watchdog. 

My name is Paco.

I’m determined enough to bide my time, yet too clever to pass up on opportunity. 

I’m a steadfast rebel.

An outcast, a defender, a hothead, and an eccentric.

My name is Mel.

I’m resolute enough to carve my own way, but not too blind to see a better path.

We are established loners—each limited by the boundaries we set—but when a young boy’s life hangs in the balance, we discover we have more in common than we thought.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Five books in and I’m still really enjoying this series from Ms Barker…..

Edge Of Reality was Paco and Mel’s story…. I’ve been looking forward to finding out more about this pair from when we met them in earlier books. Mel is ballsy, stubborn, independent but one helluva person to have in your corner…… kinda like Paco in many respects!!!!!!

Mel didn’t really stand a chance once Paco set his sight on her….. he took his time, has his ducks (pretty much) in a row before making his intention known…… not before talking before engaging his brain a time or two!!! Mel for her part didn’t make it easy for him and that a lot of fun.

Individually they were great, together they were a force. Add in the suspense, drama, family issues – let’s face it, it wouldn’t be a proper Freya book without some family trying to feck thing up for our leads – the heartbreak, chemistry and heat and this pair made for a fabulous read.
Possibility of an upcoming couple – which I do hope comes to pass- and catching up with some of our favourites from Ms B’s book world all added to the enjoyment.

A definite recommended read, but check out the rest of the series first to fully enrich your reading of this book.

NEW RELEASE REVIEW – Falling For The Country Boy (Blossom Creek #1) by Michelle René

Blurb:

College football, stadium food and a hotel spa in New Orleans was all Aubrey Evans thought she needed to regroup and mentally recharge. At least, it was until the handsome stranger, wearing the wrong shade of red, with a panty-melting smile and sexy southern drawl standing in front of her offered her a hot dog and beer.

It’s been a few years since Kenny “Hutch” Hutchinson was last in the Big Easy. When the opportunity arose to see his alma mater play for a national championship he couldn’t resist and purchased a ticket online. Little did he know, he’d be sitting among the opposing team’s fans, much less have a beautiful blonde with sparkling blue eyes sitting beside him.

When a friendly wager between them sparks an undeniable chemistry, their memorable weekend turns into an unexpected relationship. Are the feelings they share enough for a city girl to survive life on the farm or is falling for the country boy going to be another lesson learned?

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

My first read from Michelle Rene and I’m already looking forward to more in the Blossom Creek series and to checking out her other books. 

Falling for the Country Boy was just what I needed this week. A sweet, sexy, heartwarming, really great read that I didn’t want to end!!

I loved Kenny and Aubrey. They were just so good together. Complete opposites when it came to football and where they grew up but they had the same feelings when it came to family and each other.
I adored the fact that they got each other the way they did. Kenny’s need to take care of Aubrey even when he had a lot going on. Aubrey’s desire to help and learn about his work and her blossoming relationship with Kenny’s family. There was low angst, one incident and while I was kinda mad at the reaction I sorta got where they were coming from….. but all in all, it was just what I needed while I was reading.

If you aren’t a fan of quick/insta love stories this possibly isn’t one for you but it’s definitely worth a read in my opinion…. Great cast of characters, a feel good factor and I think we were given a hint to the main characters in book two…. Could be wrong, but I’ve got my fingers crossed.

BLOG TOUR – Sealed With A Kiss (Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild #4) by Erin Nicholas

Sealed With a Kiss, an all-new romantic comedy filled with heated chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

What’s a girl to do when her celebrity crush needs her to be his fake girlfriend?

Keep her damned feelings to herself, of course.
Child TV star turned adult wallflower Naomi LeClaire has vowed never to return to the spotlight.
But when she’s stuck in a storm with Donovan Foster, the hot, charming, wild-life rescuing internet sensation, and she finally gives in and kisses him…and a few articles of clothing end up on the floor…suddenly her simple, quiet life is tossed upside down.

Especially after the paparazzi catches a heat-of-the-moment kiss. Now everyone assumes she’s his girlfriend and, when she realizes that’s the best way to keep Donovan out of trouble, Naomi agrees to play along. Even though it puts her center stage with her private life in very public view. Again.

They’re a whirlwind of opposites-attract chemistry the fans love, but they’ll surely blow over faster than a Gulf Coast hurricane. As long as they can keep straight what’s real and what’s just a once-in-a-lifetime fantasy.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

You’ve gotta love a trip to the Bayou and the chance to catch up with those Autre boys and girls……

Sealed with a Kiss was another fantastic read in what is a definite favourite Erin Nicholas series of mine and I can’t wait for more!!!!

Donovan and Naomi were fabulous together – but then I think that about all of the couples that EN introduces us to!!

Donovan was deep, had a sad history and was more than the high voltage, danger seeking, attention loving animal expert folk thought him to be from his tv show. I loved how visiting Griffin turned from a quick stay to an unknown timescale and the sense of family and belonging he found while there….
Mind you, the sense of ‘home’ of sorts could have had more to do with the lovely lady who had snared his attention…..

Naomi LeClaire loved the quiet life, taking care of friends and those she loved, doing her thing and laying low – until Donovan Foster found his way into her circle and grabbed her attention. I loved that she already knew about him and what he did but that it didn’t stop her from looking out for him and from considering the possibility of living life out of her self built box.

This pair were exactly what the other needed. I adored the fact that the Landry’s and their significant others saw what Donovan or Naomi thought they were keeping quiet and that they, in the main, let them work things out for themselves.. especially when keeping things quiet isn’t always their way.

Loved catching up with the Landry guys and gals and keeping an eye on another potential couple…. That’s gotta work out or I’ll be well bummed!!!

Another recommended read from Erin Nicholas and I can’t wait for what’s coming next.

BLOG TOUR – Jingle Bell Hell (Bad Luck Club #2) by Denise Grover Swank & A.R. Casella

Jingle Bell Hell, an all-new awkward meets sexy rom com from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author A.R. Casella is available now!

She’s a sexually repressed control freak. He’s a muscular ex-con with heavier baggage than Santa’s toy bag. They’re everything each other never wanted.

Mary

I’m usually the first person on my block to decorate for Christmas. This year? Humbug.

My six-year-old son, Aidan, just had a meltdown after learning some hard truths from a drunk Santa impersonator, and I can no longer deny we both need help. Change is hard for Aidan, and right now he’s dealing with several big ones, including A) his father abandoning us, B) our move to Asheville, and C) the Santa snafu.

And me? I’m a control freak, and my life is more out-of-control than a sled on ice.

That’s why I agree to let Aidan join Butterfly Buddies, a group that matches kids with adult mentors.

It’s also why I agree to a mentor of my own—terrifying, pink-haired Nicole, who wants to help me live life on the wild side. Her advice is strangely compelling, especially after I meet Aidan’s new “buddy,” a gorgeous tattooed hunk of a man who makes me wish there weren’t cobwebs in my…well, you know.

*********
Jace

Mary O’Shea is sexy as hell, but she doesn’t know it.

She also doesn’t know I’m an ex-con, and if she finds out that I served three years in prison, extenuating circumstances won’t matter to her.

The last thing I should do is get attached to her kid…or her, but I didn’t get in this position by making good decisions.

Excerpt

Jace reaches toward my face, and my heart feels like it’s about to beat out of my chest as his fingers near the soft flesh of my cheek. When he tucks an escaped lock of hair behind my ear, I almost melt into a puddle.

“You’re a good mom,” he says. “And you were probably right. It might not be a good idea for Aidan to get too attached to me, and me to him, given that you and I are attracted to each other.”

Shock roils through me. It’s as if I’ve opened my eyes and found myself on a different planet, where the ground is as solid as a bounce house and left is right and right is left.

No, it’s not possible. 

I gawk at him, taking in his sparkling eyes, the golden ends of his hair, and that short beard that shouldn’t look good, but oh God, it looks really good…

“Did you just say…?” I start.

It’s then that Aidan bursts through the door, holding something in his hand. He thrusts it out in front of him, scrunching his nose. “Did you get me this, Mom? It came in the box with my game. It was in a container, but I took it out.”

Shock renders me mute and still, like a pillar of salt. Especially since I can feel the intense scrutiny of Jace’s eyes. There’s no way Aidan knows what he’s holding, but Jace must know.

No, no, no, no, no, this can’t be happening.

The vibrator wasn’t supposed to come until tomorrow. Why would they pack it with a children’s board game?

A twisted sense of humor? A lack of reasonable bathroom breaks in the warehouse?

Aidan waves the bright pink vibrator around.

“There’s a little rabbit on it. Is it some kind of toy for Christmas? The package says it’s a magic wand that’s supposed to make people moan, but they spelled magic with a k, and it didn’t come with a spell book or anything.” He pulls a face. “I guess I can just use it with the Harry Potter spells. It does vibrate like it’s doing magic, and it can whirl in circles too.”

A short laugh sputters out of Jace.

My face is so red, it might as well be a fire truck. Magik wand. At least the name offers a reasonable explanation. For a six-year-old. God help me, I can’t bear to look at Jace.

 I make a grab for the vibrator, but Aidan evades me.

“Why’d you get it in pink, Mom? You know green’s my favorite color.”

Jace clears his throat, but nope, I still can’t look at him. He’s not laughing anymore, but I know he probably wants to. Who wouldn’t? If he did feel some sort of passing attraction to me before this, he certainly doesn’t now.

“Aidan,” Jace says slowly, his voice husky. “There are toys for adults too. That’s probably something your mom got as a treat for herself, although I’m sure she’ll get you a Harry Potter wand for Christmas if you want one. Let her have it.”

Aidan does, which is what I wanted, but then I have a vibrator in my hand.I think for a moment and then stuff it into my bag. The tip instantly pops out, unmistakable.

What is happening to me?

“It must be some kind of mistake,” I say, finally forcing myself to meet Jace’s gaze. “I didn’t order this. I wouldn’t…”

I thought I’d see laughter there, because he’s only human, but all traces of it are gone, and now he’s looking at me like I’m the last slice of birthday cake at an office birthday party. No, like I’m the first.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I bought the first book in the Bad Luck Club when it came out but so far haven’t read it….. and I’m kinda annoyed at myself for not having picked it up if Jingle Bell Hell is anything to go by!!!

I ADORED Mary and Jace. As opposite as they could be they were perfect for each other and that Jace was as good as he was with Aidan, Mary’s young son – even before he met his mother – was just fab.

Both have had a pretty rough time of things, Jace more so and for very different reasons than we’d expect. Finding each other and bringing life and colour to each other’s lives was exactly what they needed. 

The cast of supporting characters were fantastic, I especially loved Jace’s elderly neighbours, Nicole (gods, the gal has NO filter and is a hoot for it) and Mary’s sisters Molly & Maisie. 

This was a fabulous feel good read that showed there’s someone for everyone and that the most unexpected people can help change your life when you least expect it! 

I’m off to read Molly & Cal’s book and I’ve already pre-ordered the third book in the series…. I just know that is gonna be another hit!

RELEASE BLITZ – The Boss (Men of Hidden Justice #1) by Melanie Moreland

The Boss by Melanie Moreland is now live!

Because love can bleed into the darkest heart

Terrified and on the run, I was lost.
He found me.
I witnessed his crime and he gave me a choice.
Marriage or death.
I never expected to love him.
But the choices were never really mine.
Could this avenging angel of death ever love me back?
His touch consumed me.
Did my heart stand a chance?

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I love Melanie Moreland’s writing…. She’s on my auto-buy list and for good reason.

Going into The Boss I didn’t know what to expect. I hadn’t read it in it’s previous life as a short story, didn’t check out the blurb or anything about it and I was pleasantly surprise by how things turned out.

Evie is on the run when she seems to stumble from one life threatening interaction to another. Interestingly enough, things aren’t quite gonna go as she fears and she’s handed a life line of sorts…. But can she trust The Boss and why would he want to help her?.

Matteo… for a while I just wasn’t sure what to make of him.. was he dark or light, saviour or jailer… but as we read on we find out there’s much more to this man than meets the eye and he’s maybe more shadow than anything else!

Things move quickly in this read, feelings, events, thoughts and actions but I loved every minute of it and it all added to the uncertainty that the characters felt and the connection that was being built.

The backstory to how Matteo got to where he was had my heart hurting and I understood the path he’d taken but I was more than happy that he’d encountered Evie and that she added some colour and warmth to his world.

I’m looking forward to the next instalment in the Men of Hidden Justice series.


Meet Melanie Moreland





New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

RELEASE BLITZ – Just One Chance (The Kingston Family series) by Carly Phillips

JUST ONE CHANCE

The Kingston Family series

Carly Phillips

Release Date: October 12

He thought she was the one . . . until she walked away.  Now she’s back and he wants her more than ever.

As a former Marine, Xander Kingston’s writing keeps him sane.  Bonus? His thrillers made him one of Hollywood’s most desired screenwriters – and also introduced him to a fledgling starlet who broke his heart. 

With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart.

Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone—only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance.

Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe. Before long she’s back in his bed and making inroads in his life. 

But when the danger passes and the movie wraps, Sasha and Xander face a familiar choice—put career first or give love a fighting chance.

NEW RELEASE – Watching Trin (On Call, #7) by Freya Barker

Title: Watching Trin

Series: On Call, #7

Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 14, 2021
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Blurb:

Freelance journalist and single mom, Katrina (Trin) Paige, has recently returned to her hometown to help her sister care for their elderly father. They’ve barely settled back into Durango’s daily life when her rebellious teenage son gets himself in tumultuous waters. While being rescued by the local fire department, he unwittingly uncovers a decades-old crime hidden underneath the churning rapids of the Animas River.

Once Trin’s life is back on an even keel, her sharp nose for a compelling story starts twitching and she dives headfirst into an investigation of her own. The more she uncovers, the closer she gets to the firefighter who not only pulled her son from the river, but who also seems present everywhere she turns.

Bodhi (Roadkill) Jones doesn’t believe in things like fate, although, he can’t deny the way his life seems to be entwined with the spunky redhead is more than mere coincidence. In fact, he’s been wondering how it is possible she escaped his attention growing up in the same town, even though she is a few years older. Swept up in an unfamiliar current, he finds himself looking for ways to spend time with her and her family.

However, when a murder investigation touches his personal life, it invades Trin’s as well, leaving him scrambling to make sure the woman he’s fast falling for is protected.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

Ah Ms Freya, how I do love this series!!

Watching Trin may be the seventh book in the On Call series from Freya Barker but I enjoyed it just as much as I did book one.

Bodhi and Trin made great main characters. I loved Trin’s strength of character and determination and the way she raised Tucker on her own. Bodhi was someone Trin never expected but once he had his sights set on her, I don’t think she had a chance….

My heart broke at her family situation….. personal experience of the things Trin and her sister were going through with their dads dementia were so close to home that I felt the characters pain. To write about ‘losing’’ a parent when they are still here, the way Freya did, can only be done justice when you have first hand knowledge or experience. Gods, it was difficult to read at times but made the story so much more as it was so relatable.

The relationship Bodhi and Tucker fostered was lovely to watch and Bodhi became a great role model for the teen. I loved the appearance of some of our favourites from other series – personally, I think it’s fab when an author crosses series and characters when you least expect it!
i really liked Bodhi’s folks and as ever we had a sense of family, blood and choice, which is a mainstay when it comes to Ms B’s books.

There was action, suspense and mystery that we’re right in Trin’s wheelhouse, given that she’s a journalist, that brought out Bodhi’s very protective side ….. not always a good thing given how stubborn and used to taking care of herself Trin was, but that made for good reading and making up!!!

Another great instalment and I’m looking forward to much more in this series!

USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.

Recipient of the ReadFREE.ly 2019 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Award for “Covering Ollie, the 2015 RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for Best First Book, “Slim To None”, Finalist for the 2017 Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, and Finalist for the 2020 Kindle Book Award with “When Hope Ends”, Freya continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
