Blurb:

Not only is Michael a star on a successful home improvement show, he’s also seen as a local hero. But no one knows about the demons he carries inside him ever since the day he risked his life to save others.

All the accolades and honors only make the memories stronger and the pain unbearable. He would do anything to be able to forget, to put his past behind him and move on.

Michael takes on a new home improvement project, convinced it’s the perfect distraction. Little did he know that Emily, the woman who’s supposed to be nothing more than a client, would turn out to be a huge distraction…and engaged.

While Emily battles with her own personal problems, Michael is determined to keep his distance. The last thing he needs is woman trouble. But when it becomes clear that the attraction is mutual, he realizes staying away from her is not an option.

Now Michael needs to decide if he’s willing to risk exposing his weakness, and his heart…by giving in to temptation.

Excerpt:

“Come with me. I want to show you something.”

“Sounds mysterious.”

“I will admit I was keeping this a secret, but I’ve made an executive decision to break with Handymen tradition.”

“What will Lacey think?”

“Let’s not go there.” He brought her upstairs, to the room that used to be the master bedroom, the one where several crew members stowed their belongings most days. Michael opened the door. At the far end of the empty room sat a large object, covered in a long tarp. “I’ve been working on something for you.”

“You mean other than renovating my house?”

He grinned. “Remember those old family photos Lacey borrowed from you?”

“Yeah. She said they wanted to include a montage of old pictures in the show introduction.”

“That might have been a slight fabrication. I just needed a way to get some photos from you. Anyway, I was saving this for the big reveal, but I think I want to show you now.” He grabbed the edge of the tarp and pulled, revealing the object hidden beneath it.

It was an old wooden ladder, one he’d found months ago at a salvage yard. He’d decided to repurpose it, turning it into a set of frames for the old photos they’d borrowed. Faces now smiled out from the six gaps between the rungs. Nonna Olivia hugging two blond children, Emily and her brother. Nonna Olivia and her husband on their wedding day. Six photos in total, all part of the heritage Emily so treasured. He hoped she’d like the rustic look of the ladder. Rather than sanding and painting it, he’d left it rough and worn, so that it looked as if it might have been sitting in Nonna Olivia’s toolshed, just waiting to be used. All Michael had done was affix the appropriate hooks and backings and had blown all the photos up to sizes that would fit the spaces.

Emily gazed upon her grandmother’s face. Her chest heaved. She blinked once, then twice. All at once, big, fat tears began to roll down her cheeks. “Michael, it’s…”

“I hope you don’t mind I used the photos. I thought it might be nice for you to have mementos of your grandmother in the finished store.”

“Oh.” Her hand covered her mouth but it shook so much she was unsuccessful at covering her open mouth.

“I hope you like it. You’ve had a shitty week and I thought you could use a pick-me-up. I was supposed to keep quiet about it, so maybe you could keep it under your hat until—”

Emily threw herself at him and wrapped her arms around his torso, cutting off his words and his breath. Only when he hugged her back did he realize how hard she was quivering.

She wasn’t just crying about the old photos.

“It’s okay, Em. Let it out, sweetheart.”

The collar of his shirt grew wet but he didn’t care. Wardrobe had tons of shirts. Besides, she felt good in his arms, all soft and warm. He rubbed her shoulders and the back of her waist, exploring and familiarizing himself with her luscious body. He breathed, drinking in her scent. His nasal cavities had never known such bliss. It was like that first clear breath after a long period of congestion. His fingers were pretty happy too, enjoying the give of her womanly body. It was all he could do not to slide them down, cup her sweet ass, and pull her up against him.

Just not while she was crying over another man.

She lingered in his arms and he did nothing to push her away. In fact, it surprised him how badly he wanted to keep her there, so much so that when Emily finally extricated herself, he wanted to pull her back into his embrace. Instead, he wiped her cheeks of the remaining tears.

“The makeup ladies are going to kill me for making you cry.”

It might have been his imagination, but her tears made her eyes appear even greener. In fact, her entire face seemed a riot of tempting color. Each shade called to him. The crushed roses in her cheeks. Her strawberry lips, so plump and moist. Even the doeskin brown of her freckles fascinated him to no end. He wanted to count them, to kiss and mark them all.

Kissing her made a whole lot of sense right now. Kissing her senseless seemed even better.

Emily’s eyes widened. Her lips parted in invitation. Michael paused, knowing it was wrong, even though every raised hair on his arms told him it was right.

As he debated with himself for a split second, she brushed her lips against his. It was quick and soft, hunger masquerading as something platonic. Even though a spectator might have called it a friendly kiss, he knew the truth. As brief as it may have been, he felt her yield to him, even if just a little.

From the startled look in her eye, Emily knew it too.

She took a step back. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that.”

“You’re right. I should have been the one to do it.” Michael licked his lips. “Your lips really do taste like strawberries.”

“Michael, I can’t.”

“I think you just did.”

“You know what I mean.” She waved her hand between their two torsos. “This. I can’t do this.”

“What? Point at my chest?”

“You’re teasing me.”

“Maybe a little. Listen, Em, I understand. As unexpected as that kiss was, as much as I want to taste your lips again, I know it’s too soon.”

“It’s too much, too soon.”

He reached for her hand. “I get it. It’s okay.”

“Thank you.”

“But that doesn’t mean I won’t be spending all my waking hours waiting for the moment I can make it happen again.”

“Michael.”

“Don’t worry. I’d never force the matter. Besides, I enjoyed having you thrust yourself at me.”

“Are you ever going to let me live it down?”

“Not in this century, sweetheart.”

Sapphire Sea

ss4

Scottish lady Gwendolyn MacLeod prides herself on being the practical sort. So when an arranged marriage to a Spanish prince is presented, Gwendolyn accepts without hesitation.

The prince has status, his letters speak of duty and honor, and her years of proper education will be useful in the running of his home. However, she speaks no Spanish–the only flaw in her sensible match. But the Portuguese captain whose ship is docked below the castle does, and he offers to instruct her in the language of love.

When the late nights of studying begin to tear her from her chosen path to Spain, will she follow her heart out to the wide, sapphire sea? Or will she allow her one great adventure to become her biggest regret?

Mistress of Rome

Here’s an old one that I like to reread every so often when I come upon it in my book shelf. Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn is a historical fiction based in Rome that is a great, dramatic, read for fall. And did I mention that Outlander author Diana Gabaldon loves it? Because that’s a good enough reason to give it a shot.

Heat Level: ♥♥

Genre: Ancient Historical Romance

Overall Rating: 5/6 Glass Slippers

Lepida is young, beautiful, bratty, and on the marriage market as one of Rome’s eligible brides. She’s looking for a man with power and money, but will also have some fun on the side if someone catches her eye. She owns a slave named Thea, a Jewish girl with a beautiful singing voice. Lepida treats Thea terribly, something that gets even worse when Thea catches the eye of famed gladiator Arius, whom Lepida wants for herself. When Thea and Arius begin a torrid love affair, Lepida sells her, ripping them apart forever.

giphy.gif

As time goes on, so do their lives. Thea becomes a famous singer, Lepida finally marries, and Arius continues his rise in the spotlight. But just as they all had once been sent on different paths. Rome isn’t all that small and soon they all come into contact again. And when the Emperor of Rome gets involved, more than just their reputations in society might be at stake.

If not for the sometimes confusing multiple POV issues, I would have given this book a five. The setting of this novel and the problems faced by the cast were great and the descriptions are really well done. The author really knows how to make you hate, love, and root for the characters, getting you to really feel for the story lines. It’s also a great romance without being overly erotic, so if you’re not looking for detailed descriptions of the acts, this book is one for you.

Author’s Day

Today is National Author’s Day, a day in which we celebrate authors, books, and all things literary. And as many of you know, Sarah and I are both published authors. So this is a nice excuse for both of us to talk a little about the books we’ve released and the books we’re we’re working on!

While recovering from surgery, she decided to write one. Elton Hall Chronicles, a new adult series, is based on true events that happened to Sarah and her group of friends. When she isn’t unveiling long held secrets or working as a government drone, Sarah likes to go to the movies with her husband and spend time with her two furbabies.

But someone is already in on the secret and threatens to do more than just ruin both their reputations.

Annabelle knows it, even if she can’t quite piece it together. And when one of her friends comes a little too close, both might end up getting burned.

Second Snowfall is available HERE in paperback, ebook, and for free with Kindle Unlimited.

The Survivalist Series

It’s almost Halloween and I’m super pumped, since it’s my favorite holiday. But you know what’s scarier than ghosts, zombies, and witches? EMPs and a hostile takeover that leaves the US crippled. So Spooky. Anyways, I recently found The Survivalist Series by A. American and I have a lot to say.

51LQTJywkDL

Genre: Thriller/Suspense/War Fiction

Overall Rating: 6 Glass Slippers

Morgan Carter is just a regular, American guy who loves his family, his freedoms, and a good glass of sweet tea. He’s on his way home from a short work trip when everything stops. Cars, electronics, planes, laptops, phones…everything with any form of computer in it just dies, all at once. Morgan is that left to go on a long hike through Florida to get home. Luckily for him, and his family, Morgan likes to be prepared. He has guns, solar systems, food, and enough skills to possibly get his family through this crisis. But the fight doesn’t end after book one in this series. Getting home was only a small part of surviving the the destruction of modern society.

Imagine an America where clean water and soap are luxuries and bullets and beans are the new currency. What if gangs roamed free and things like police forces and prisons were no longer in use? Could you survive? Would you have the guns, the food, the power to keep you and yours safe? When Morgan gets home, he needs to both try and keep his family alive as well as fight off all those who weren’t so prepared. There’s a new, rising power who aims to take it all from him, but luckily, he’s got a few good friends in high places to have his back. But when the real enemy might be your own government, is there really any safe place?

IgRSrjW.gif

I’m still reading this eight part series, but I think it’s so good, I wanted to bring some more attention to it. A. American writes simply, but powerfully about what might happen if the power grid in the US is destroyed. So much so, that I’ve given thought to my own ability to keep things together if something like that were to happen in the future. While I may be more prepared than some, it might never be enough. In truth, books like this, that are grounded in facts and military experience, are far scarier than anything else you could read.

I think this book is great for anyone who likes heart pounding danger and learning a few things along the way. It’s available in ebook, paperback, and audiobook if you’re looking for something to keep you wildly entertained during your long commute.

What I Learned From Outlander

Over the past few years, I’ve been completely taken over by Outlander. I have a slight obsession with Dougal, while most people would leave their own personal Franks for the chance to look under Jamie Fraser’s kilt. While we clearly all watch Outlander for the history, there have been some other things that I’ve learned along the way. Here’s a comprehensive list…maybe you’ll learn something from me.

  1. It’s now okay to hear voices, but only if they come through stones. Otherwise, you’re still crazy…or a witch. stones
  2. Speaking of witches, I also learned that vaccine scars will kill you faster than the actual disease.
  3. However, whipping scars…now they won’t kill you. In fact, whipping scars are very useful.
  4. On the other hand, sometimes diseases can be used to your advantage.
  5. Sleeping with, excuse me, marrying the second in command is the way to go. When he overthrows number one, you’ll rule. Er, you’ll help him rule. married
  6. The way to get your man isn’t by giving your honey pot away–your life has to be at risk. That whole damsel in distress thing is the clincher. It works even better, if once you have him, your independent woman side comes out.
  7. If you think a ghost is watching your wife, it’s probably time to force her to leave.
  8. Always befriend your man’s sister. Only she can help prevent those hussies from coming around. Jenny
  9. It’s never to late to reconnect with the love of your life. However, you may have to deal with some leg hair first.
  10. The saying may be, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” but I think “When in France, do as the French do” is better. 
  11. If you’ve kept your daughter’s father a secret for most of her life, don’t be surprised when she get’s pissed…especially if she’s a red head. bree
  12. Never take your mother for granted. You have no idea what she went through to have you…(in this case though, we know she went through the stones).
  13. Smoozing multiple men is one of the best ways to assure loyalty… and gifts. Lots of shiny presents.
  14. If you are curious about time travel, killing someone may not be the only way to accomplish it. I would consider continuing to look for a way. Karma catches up to you.
  15. Always shout out your skills when dealing with kings, lairds, and chieftains. They may find use for you, even if you are a spy.
  16. If you wish to see a King, just hope he had plenty of fiber that day. In fact, maybe send him some fiber the day before to prepare. It should be number two on your list.
  17. Being known for your beauty is one thing, but being known as a badass who can curse you is even better.
  18. When you have an open marriage, try to set rules and boundaries so no one get’s hurt…or crashes a graduation party.
  19. A red coat is not a fashion statement. If the red coats are coming, they are not referring to a trunk sale. Run the other way. black jack
  20. Never underestimate a good dog. They’re quite handy to have around.
  21. Speaking of being handy, when stealing, it’s vital to be crazy sneaky. You certainly wouldn’t want to ask anyone for a hand.
  22. If you find out there’s a slim chance that the love of your life didn’t die on a battlefield, maybe hire a private investigator. They know everything, that’s why their hair is so big. Or research yourself until you’re sure.research
  23. Never assume someone was taken by faeries. They may be tricky, but they aren’t malicious. This goes for adults and children.
  24. If you must travel all around, bring an accountant. They may not be able to fight with a sword, but their words are pretty dangerous, especially when written down.
  25. Finally, I learned that waiting is the worst thing to ever happen to a Sassenach. Book 10…we’re ready.

The next episode of Season 3 is starting soon! How do you think it’s going so far? I mean, I know we haven’t gotten to the print shop scene, but I’m enjoying it. What has your favorite part been so far? Comment below.

WeeBox

You’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting, the world‘s been waiting, for the latest WeeBox. That’s right, they’ve finally released the exclusive and limited edition Outlander themed box. It’s a little purple package filled with all sorts of Outlandish fun, straight from Scotland.

As before, I was really impressed with what came inside this box. Everything was cute, usable, and worth the money. And what’s also nice about it is that it’s not just full of cluttery knickknacks you’ll never use or appreciate. Here’s an itemized list of everything that came in my special purple box:

  • A delightful Outlander bag by WeeBox, filled with words and quotes we all recognize
  • A cute little bag of heart-shaped tablets by Sixpenny Blue that would satisfy any sweet tooth!
  • A whisky barrel candle holder by Whisky Wood Scotland, in which the tea light can be replaced, so this little holder can have a long life
  • An official Outlander mortal and pestle set with a book of quotes, so you can pretend to be a witch every time you muddle up some mint leaves for a strong brew
  • A print of Scottish standing stones by artist Kevin Hunter that will look perfectly in place on your mantle

Everything I got was just so much fun and even my daughter got into the action, “sharing” the candy with me and taking the Outlander bag to use for all her ballet gear! I say she’s chosen a lovely little, durable, machine washable bag to take back and forth. My child has wonderful taste!

img_4790

While the WeeBox is fun and a nice gift to give and receive, the company also tries to give back when they can. Their most recent philanthropic endeavor is participating with The Yard, a disabled children’s charity. I found this particularly heartwarming since my own younger brother is mentally handicapped and was helped in his youth by many similar organizations.

Each month has a different, fantastic theme that celebrates some aspect of Scottish culture or history. For example, in the past they’ve had a Highland Games box while the next on deck is one that gives a wee nod to the St. Andrew’s celebrations!

Wearing success like a well-tailored suit, Liam Doyle knows exactly how to lure customers into his grand casino hotels. Every night it’s business as usual while he runs his multi-million dollar empire…until a pesky protester catches his attention.

Staging a one-woman protest, Kate Callender has the potential to be a huge pain in his ass. If he doesn’t take care of her soon, there will be bad publicity slapped all over Vice, the newest addition to his chain of casinos.

But there’s just one tiny little problem Liam didn’t count on—the feisty red-head isn’t about to go down easily. She’s fighting him every step of the way…and he’s starting to like it.
