Elton Hall Chronicles Series

You’ve gone to class with Violet, explored your options with Annabelle, and rode off into the sunset with Christie, but are you ready for all three of their stories in one amazing box set? The Elton Chronicles box set is available now on Amazon for only $.99 and it’s free on Kindle Unlimited.

Book One: First Semester

Violet is just a freshman, off on her first adventure, when she meets a man she dubs her “hipster Hercules”. He’s tall, dark, handsome, British…and her professor. But the heart wants what it wants and her heart sure as hell wants Professor Bernelli. However, someone isn’t too keen on keeping the two secret lovers hidden from the watchful eye of the dean and before she knows it, Violet is forced to fight for her relationship…and her life.

Book Two: Second Snowfall

Annabelle is a relationship virgin. True love has been her dream all her life and when red hot firefighter Kingsley drops into her lap, she thinks she might have found the one. But her heart really longs for another man, one that she can never have. And when her picture perfect romance begins to crack, Annabelle is left to pick up the pieces…before it’s too late.

Book Three: Third Wheel

Christ has her life all planned out. First she’ll graduate college, then marry her childhood sweetheart, and live happily ever after in the traditional American Dream….the traditional, boring American Dream. Christie breaks all the rules and even meets a boy who sets her soul on fire. But life with street racer Shane has its dangers and she’s about to learn first hand that living on the edge isn’t easy.

book review

My Dirty Detour

Remember the book Nights in the Fast Lane I read, loved, and reviewed? Here’s another one by the dame author, Grace Risata, titled My Dirty Detour. It’s a romantic comedy with a splash of mob that had me literally laughing out loud.


Heat Level:

Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers

Genre: Alpha Male Romantic Comedy

Germaphobe, plain, average, a pushover, crass, a divorcee; this is how many people would describe Violet when she accidentally wanders into the Grim Rock Distillery, run by a total asshole named Rocky. After a messy first meeting, she trades her book-keeping skills for weekly fight training from Rocky, whose finances are a hot mess. She ends up sorting out more than just the giant box of crumpled bills and gains the respect of her new coworkers. Well, except for Rocky. He’s a douche sandwich that constantly spends his time shoving his nastiness down Violet’s throat when she’s really invaluable to his business. Ya gotta wonder why she stayed.


But people change, seasons change, and some other shit, and Rocky sees that being a douche sandwich doesn’t get shit done and that he needs Violet to sort out his hella messy life. He’s had a tough go of things and Violet’s no-nonsense, but honest, demeanor appeals to him in a strange, and new, way. Violet can say the same about her mysterious boss who slowly helps her crawl out of her shell and heal from her divorce, which left her more subconscious and lonely than ever. But Rocky has just as many secrets as he does muscles.


Violet and Rocky both evolve in this delightful book where truths are exposed and characters are pushed to their personal limits. Much like Risata’s other book, I found myself reading at every available moment, just to see what happened next. It had sex, a band of flashy Russians, a plain Jane who could be any of us, and a hot guy with a bad streak and a heart of gold.
