He’s about to find out …  She’s not just one of the guys.

Despite her upbringing, Annabelle is all woman. She's naturally drawn to real men—like her latest client, businessman and former football legend Brandon Vaughn.
The chemistry is potent, undeniable, irresistible. Annabelle soon realizes that Brandon is much more than just another jock. And that she'd better hold on tight if she doesn't want to lose her heart.

Cool, collected Sophie Jordan loves her daily routine running her family's top sports management agency, as long as she gets to stay behind the scenes.

And a recent media crisis surrounding the disappearance of super-agent Spenser Atkins is not going to make the job any easier.

Enter star quarterback and notorious bad boy Riley Nash who, for reasons of his own, needs to track down Atkins.

Hot Property
Book 4


Just one short season ago, major league center fielder John Roper had it all: the looks—and personal life—of a sports hero and the public's adoration. But this hot property's lucky streak has run out. After a World Series disaster, fans diss him, shock jocks mock him and his dysfunctional family hassles him for money he really can't spare.

Now it's up to him, and Hot Zone publicist Amy Stone, to get his life back on track.

Amy finds it's easier said than done. What with the constant intrusions of his nutty family, a crazed fan playing stalker, and Roper's refusal to put his own needs first, she's starting to think that life in the fast lane isn't all it's cracked up to be. But when the two retreat to a secluded lodge, the sexy center fielder throws Amy a curveball—one she never saw coming...

Tasty book Tours Q&A + Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: Good Vampires Go To Heaven by Sandra Hill


Quick Q&A with Sandra Hill
Describe yourself in five words or less.
A talented writer with a sense of humor.
Can you tell us a little about your book?
GOOD VAMPIRES GO TO HEAVEN: eighth book in the Deadly Angels series.  Zebulan is a good demon (vampire…a Lucipire) who finds himself in a hellish situation.  Who better to rescue him than the flame-haired vangel (vampire angel) Regina, who looks an awful lot like Satan’s sister!  Laughter and sizzle guaranteed!
How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

Zeb has been a popular secondary character in the other Deadly Angels books, a quintessential tortured hero with a sense of humor.  Readers love him.  That’s not to say this book can’t be read without having read others in the series.  They are all intended to stand alone, as well as follow a series.
What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?
Anything involving humor.  A coven of witches in a hot air balloon rescuing my hero in GOOD VAMPIRES GO TO HEAVEN.  A modern women teaching Viking women how to make homemade condoms in THE RELUCTANT VIKING.  A lazy Viking who is forced to become a Navy SEAL in KISS OF SURRENDER.  An eighty-year-old woman, Tante Lulu, doing outrageous things in all my Cajun novels, including entering a belly dancing contest.  A Norse king who has a curse placed on him causing his penis to make a right turn (THE OUTLAW VIKING).  These kinds of things I enjoy writing most.
Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
THE CAJUN DOCTOR (May 30, 2017) features Dr. Daniel LeDeux, a burned out pediatric oncologist, who meets his match in Samantha Starr, a New Orleans divorcee who has a reason to hate doctors.  Poignant at times and hilarious at others, this book also features the popular Tante Lulu with her usual outrageous antics.

A Mate for Christmas by Katie Reus (Review)

A Mate for Christmas is pretty much the last of the Moon Shifter books, so if you haven't read any of the Moon Shifter books stop right there. The bottom line is this is the closer, in A Mate for Christmas Katie is tying up the loose ends. Granted this is the story that pulls Nathan and Noel together, but you get a lot of pack too. If you have read a few you will be fine.

Overall, a nice holiday read for those who have loved Moon Shifter books. A nice read for those who wanted to see how each of the other couple have faired after all this time. So, if you already a fan go for A Mate For Christmas. If you haven't read any books stop and go back.

Blurb

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.
With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira.

A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

Alex Russell, the Duke of Kinross, is the most tempting man she’s ever seen—and completely unattainable—until, at a fancy dress ball, Lorna disguises herself as Marie Antoinette and pursues an illicit tryst…with scandalous consequences.

Months after his mysterious seductress disappears, Alex encounters her again. Far from the schemer the distrustful duke assumed her to be, Lorna is fiercely independent and resourceful.
