Do You Take This Cowboy? by [Berget, Stephanie, Keir, Melissa, Layne, Lyssa , Deeter, Robin , Anders, Ann, Jager, Paty, Lindun, D'Ann]

Do You Take This Cowboy?
For Better… For Worse…
In Sickness and health…
Falling for a cowboy is easy, but when weddings happen on the ranch, anything can happen and often does! Roping, Fireworks and Magic…Enjoy seven wonderful tales of love and marriage by some best-selling and award-winning Western Contemporary Romance authors.

Stephanie Berget’s: Winning A Cowgirl’s Love–Money might not buy happiness, but what if it leads to love? Randi Bachmann has two problems after winning an extravagant wedding package from the reality show Your Dream Wedding: She doesn’t have a groom, and she doesn’t want to get married. In desperate need of the $50,000 prize money awarded after 6 months of wedded bliss, she picks the one man she knows will be happy to leave as soon as the term is up, her old boyfriend, Davie Dunbar.

Melissa Keir’s: Claiming a Cowboy’s Heart–Even broken souls deserve a second chance at love….Recognizing each other’s pain, Michelle, an elementary teacher, and Preston, a veterinarian, come together to heal, but fear and misunderstandings send their blossoming relationship into a tailspin. Will they be able to put aside their pain to find the love of a lifetime?

Lyssa Layne’s: Roses With Thorns–Robby and Jordan were destined for one another, soulmates meant to never be separated but their love story didn’t begin at hello. Robby patiently waited for Jordan, trading in trains for horses. Once she turned eighteen, their love story was on the fast track as the two became adults together on the freight train of love as life began to unfold.

Robin Deeter’s: The Silver Bell Shifter–Riley Flowers moves to Wolf Junction, Nebraska, and is intensely drawn to shy, sexy Calvin Lightfoot. Calvin’s been burned by lost love before, and he’s not willing to chance it again–until Riley enters his life. He wants her for his own, but will she be able to accept the shifter side of him and come to love the man within?

Ann Anders’: My Forever Sugar–In my wildest dreams I never thought I’d marry a rancher. In my defense, I hadn’t met Tucker James yet. He asked. I said yes. Love at first sight is easy. His family… not so much…

Paty Jager’s: The Wrong Cowboy to Love–Ruby Cutter allows her cousin, the bride, to give her a makeover for the upcoming wedding because she wants to catch the attention of her high school crush. But while she’s infatuated with one man, she may be falling for another…

and D’Ann Lindun’s: Her Taylor Made Cowboy–As a successful model, Taylor Griffin hated being judged for her looks. Moving behind the lens helps but most men still only see her as arm candy. Waylon Wainwright is smitten with the tall, blonde photographer but can he prove he sees beyond her beauty to the woman underneath?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

GAH!  When Lyssa offered to let me read this book I was excited because I always love her men…they are extra lickable.  I admit I wondered how she was going to tell a love story of a 14 year-old and a 20 year-old but she did it well.

Jordan and Robby meet when she is visiting her brother from another mother during his first college baseball game.  The dynamic of the two was sweet and innocent.  Robby thought she was sweet and going to be an amazing girl when she got older.

Jumping forward a couple of years we see Robby NOTICING the young woman Jor has become but also knowing it is inappropriate to do anything given her age.  But everything changes in the blink of an eye when Abram is hurt.  Robby and Jor spend the summer together where love starts to blossom.

As the story jumps for ward in time, we see them falling more and more in love but also realizing they have a lot to accomplish to be together.  They always work toward building a life together and having the HEA everyone wants.  If you know this is a prequal to a story you KNOW what happens to our couple and their happiness.  If NOT, then I won’t spill any of the beans so you read it and then run to down load Until You Fall to get the ending of this story.

Lyssa Layne is first, and foremost, the proud momma to her precious daughter, AR. In addition to working full-time and being a mommy to AR, she is also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, a runner, blogger, and an infertility survivor.

Having watched one too many medical dramas and being inspired by author Rachelle Ayala, who introduced her to the world of indie writing, Lyssa decided to try her hand at writing a romance story. Her attempt turned into the Burning Lovesick series. You can find Lyssa’s own interests throughout her stories although all stories are fictional.

 

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Paranormal #Giveaway – Legends: Catori by Maggie Adams

Title: Legends: Catori

Author: Maggie Adams

Series: Legends

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: June 1, 2018

 

It’s hard to keep secrets in a small town…

It’s even harder to keep a secret that could expose not only your family, but an entire species. That’s what Frankie Cavanaugh must do. As the daughter of the leader of the Wisdom Counsel, it’s up to her to step into her father’s shoes until another leader is chosen.

It’s also up to her to continue her lineage within the species.

She wants to do neither. She considers the shifter gene a curse rather than a gift, robbing her of a normal life. Unfortunately, the Counsel doesn’t see it that way and is determined to wed her to their next leader – by force, if necessary.

Tanner Coalson is fresh out of college and ready to tackle whatever life has in store for him. First item on his to-do list is marrying the woman he has loved for years. He knows Frankie will baulk at the notion because she’s fifteen years older and was his childhood sitter. He’s no longer a young boy, but a man who is determined to win her heart, and he is prepared to do just that.

But convincing her they are destined to be together gets much harder when she is kidnapped by an old enemy. In order to survive, Frankie may have to reveal her secret, and Tanner may have to accept what seems impossible, or reject the love of his life.

Talon Cavanaugh stood on the grassy knoll above the cemetery, watching the procession as it wound through the cracked tombstones to the final resting place of the Wisdom Council’s leader, Leonard Cavanaugh. He smiled in satisfaction as the urn was laid into the dirt pit next to where his human wife would someday reside. Soon, he thought, soon all would be in place and he could claim his birthright.

“Son, I know how much you loved your uncle. Are you sure you don’t want to go down and join in the ceremony?” his father asked.

Well, the man he had called ‘father’ for most of his life, inquired. It was only on his mother, Sylvia’s, death bed, that Talon had learned the truth. He was the son of Leonard Cavanaugh, the owl leader of the Wisdom Council, who had died never knowing he had fathered a son. Sylvia had wanted to ensure the bloodline stayed pure when it became apparent that the old fool was planning to wed that woman, Paige, an inferior human. Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father.  Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige.  Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.

Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure –  one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.

And that position would be filled by him.

#WOTR18 #Review #FriendsToLovers – Until You Fall In Love by Lyssa Layne

Until You Fall In Love

Single mom Jordan Glastetter doesn’t know how she’d survive without her best friend, Abram Tomko. He’s the father her son never knew and he’s the rock she’s always leaned on. When Abram’s father suffers a heart attack, it’s Abram’s turn to depend on Jordan, finally seeing her as the woman she’s become and not the little girl he grew up with. Will they risk their friendship for a chance at love?

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh man where do I begin!!??  Lyssa, sister!!  Abram was such a hot mess in Robbie and Jordan’s book I was really wondering how you could fix him but fix him you sure did!

Jordan and Abram have known each other all their lives.  Jordan falls in love and married Robbie who is Abram’s bestie/wing man.  As soon as their life picks up and moves forward, Robbie is killed in the military.  This story picks p 5 years after his death.  Their story is the prequal to this story.

Jordan is a dedicated mom, rancher, friend and is slowly freaking out that the feelings she has for her best friend, Abram, are slipping into the “more than friends” category.

Abram has watched Jordan every day her entire life but when situations change, and he comes back after helping his sister, his eyes open to the woman she has become. He soon realizes he can’t live with out her in his life. PERIOD.

The couple are essentially raising her son as THEIR son. They are starting to realize there is a lot more going on then just best friends…which everyone else sees but they are both to dumb to see until their world is shook when Pop, Abram’s Father, has a heart attack.  The thought of losing his pushes them both into re-evaluating things.

Now of course love can’t come easy with the two for them.  They are dealing with her fears of finally moving on past her dead husband of 5 years.  They are dealing with other people being interested in the pair plus the fear of what if this doesn’t work.  There were times I wanted to smack Jordan upside the head and shake her senseless for thinking less of Abram’s feelings for her.  Then toward the end of the story I was gonna nut check Abram for being such a jackass over something that happened with Jordan…sigh…but mainly I loved the journey these two take!!

#WOTR18 #Review #ReleaseDay – His Mimosa (The Cocktail Girls) by Jamie Schlosser

His Mimosa (The Cocktail Girls)

Carter doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happily ever after. When he goes to Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party, the last thing he expects is Brynne, the beautiful cocktail waitress who nurses his hangover with a drink just as bubbly and sweet as she is.

Brynne’s optimism and unfailing faith in love is a breath of fresh air, and it makes him think maybe he’s had it wrong all along.

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. And Carter’s heart? It might be taking up permanent residence there.

***This Vegas-themed standalone novella is releasing June 1st, 2018!***

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh this book!!!  I loved each character so much and the fact it was an insta-love so didn’t bother me at all.  Carter and Brynne so were perfect for each other.  She opened his eyes to what Love really is despite what he grew up seeing.  He taught her that jumping in feet first can burn you, but sometimes good things can actually happen for you.

Carter is such a grumpy old man…LOL  He is so jaded and being a total party pooper for his brother Vegas Bachelor party.  I mean who wants to hear the best man say you are an idiot for getting married????  Not most grooms or brides for that fact.

Brynne has lived and grown up in Vegas.  She is over the glitz of the city and just living for the fun and excitement.  When she sees a hottie, she jumps in feet first hoping for some fun not knowing her heart was going to be rocked on the best if ways.

The story was so sweet at times which made Carter open his eyes to WHAT he is missing out. The books is also super sexy when Carter and Brynne get to “getting to know each other” a little better!!!

She grew up on a farm in Illinois surrounded by cornfields. Although she no longer lives in the country, her dream is to return to rural living someday. As a stay-at-home mom, she spends most of her days running back and forth between her two wonderful kids and her laptop. She loves her family, iced coffee, and happily-everafters

 

#WOTR18 #Review #Paranormal #BadGirls – Karma’s Revenge by Teresa Gabelman

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

Axel Walker, also known as the Assassin, was a half-breed so his loyalty lay with the highest bidder. Who had the most money to hand him at the end of a job was the side he was on whether human or vampire. His highest pay day was yet to come and all he had to do was kill the one they call the Slayer of Vampires.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

The Bad Girl series is a 2018/2019 collaboration between 13 authors releasing one book a month about kiss-ass women with a penchant for being bad, Teresa Gabelman gives us May’s Bad girl with Karma’s Revenge.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I am a huge fan of Teresa’s so if she writes it, I will read it!!  I am so loving this world she created, as I do all her worlds.  But what I really love is I can SEE these characters in any of her book series totally working together to fight the bad guys!!

Sophia AKA Karma AKA The Slayer of Vampires is one bad ass bitch!!  She has killed multiple vampires and will not stop until she kills The Savior.  She is a human who can bring strong vampires to their knees.

Axel is an assassin who was hired to kill this Slayer of Vampires.  One look at Sophia and he knows she is the one he was hired to kill, but he is an assassin with moral code???  WHU!!!???  When he turns down the job because of his code plus his VERY STRONG NEED to claim the human, this Breed male is outta his mind trying to protect her and her bestie, Darin.

Can we talk about Darin for a hot minute??  SERIOUSLY the best friend you can ever have and the funniest person ever.   I laughed out loud so many times with his banter.  #DayMade!!

Anywho, so Axel and Sophia are put in a crazy situation of him, the paid assassin, protesting her, the Slayer of Vampires!!  The chemistry between the two is pretty hawt and the anxiety they both have over trust is so real.

When the final scenes are happening, my heart was racing and breaking all at the same time!!  #PanicAttackTeresa

I would love love love to see these two appear in another of Teresa’s worlds because I think they could be great allies for the Wolves or the Warriors!!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review – Karma’s Revenge by Teresa Gabelman

Karma's Revenge

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

Goodreads

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This was a quick read that I did not want to set down. It was fast paced and full of action.

The Slayer of Vampires (AKA Karma) is on a mission to avenge her sister’s death. She will kill any vampire that gets in her way while tracking down the low life that killed her sister. The only problem is each vampire’s death brings trouble her way. There is now a bounty on her head and Axel was assigned to take her out.

Axel has never turned down a job or missed a target. He is assigned to take out the Slayer of Vampires. There is something about this woman that takes him by surprise. Does he complete his task or does he change the rules.

Alex and “Karmas” chemistry is explosive. However, seeing them learn to trust someone and the fear of them turning on one another was a whole other level. Karma can handle her own she is an expert with the knives and guns. She really knows how to use a gun even when on a motorcycle. Axel is just good at what he does and the respect he shows to Darin made my heart beat a little harder. I love the friendship between Karma and her BFF Darin.  What can I say I loved Darin as much as I did Alex and Karma. The Viper scenes and Darin are classic.

OMG!!! If anyone knows how to write about hot Vampires it’s Teresa Gabelman.

Someone is going around town and killing vampires and now the Slayer of Vampires has a price on her head.

Sophie Deluce is looking for the vampire that killed her sister and left her stuffed next to the toilet in a public bathroom.  In doing so she has made the vampires so nervous that they put a contract out for her and assassin Axel Walker has her number, however once he she’s her and finds out her reasons he returns the money and decides to help her get her man.

I was  excepting some of Gabelman’s VC Warriors to show up, the story was so good!!!!

Sophie is one kick a** woman who needs this to get justice for her sister and no one is going to stop her.  I love how she sticks to what she wants even knowing there is a price on her head, so with the help of a half-breed assassin and her drag queen best friend she continues on her mission.

I swear Gabelman does vampires like no one else and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Axel and Sophie.

#WOTR2018Attending #Review #ABrettMacleanDuet #BDSM Red by JM Walker

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

We are back with Brett and Evie from JM Walker’s Torn Series.  Years of marriage, three kids, and these two are still hot as heck together!!  Oh, and we get top see our very favorite sadist therapist!!!!

The past has come back in a big way to possibly screw up the life that they have built and let me just say that I felt just about all the feels with this one.

With all they went through in the previous stories to get and stay together I really thought that Walker was going to end this couple, I   mean how much more can two people take, and the ending?? Omg, please make sure you have tissues handy for that because you will need them and a strong drink when your done.

Walker has done a freaking mind f*** with this one so hold onto your hats  ladies and gents its going to be a bumpy ride.

Oh, and afterwards there is the story of Brett and Evie meeting for the first time, but told from his POV.  It’s awesome!!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review – Allure, Brooklet Dreams Book #1 by CA Harms

Allure (Brooklet Dreams #1)

COMING MAY 22ND 2018

The next generation of the Southern Boys returns in a new spin-off series, Brooklet Dreams…

She was supposed to be his forever.
At the age of twelve, they were best friends.
By the time they were sixteen, they were more.
Rhett only had eyes for one girl. His girl.
They had even made plans for a life together.
But when she left town, she let those dreams go…

Different life paths only led to broken promises.

Rhett spent his days existing.
Baseball, classes, and working at the family farm became his life.

Until Allison Jo.
The quiet and beautiful girl he never expected.
She made him laugh, and slowly, brought the old Rhett back to life.
He was happy.

He became her world.
She was his everything.

But what happens when Rhett’s past returns?

Everything changes and limits are tested, but one thing is certain…
Rhett Jackson will fight for the woman he loves.

Goodreads

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

This is the new series by CA where she is bringing us back to meet the 2nd generation characters from her other series.  So, if you are fan of the 1st generation then you need to start reading Rhett and AJ like NOW!!

Rhett thought he had it all figured out.  He thought he had the girl of his dreams and the love like his mom and dad BUUUUT he was wrong.  Rhett is so upside down and he is having such a time in life with trying to find his way back.

AJ has loved Rhett for a long time but she has kept her distance.  Emotionally unavailable man equals heartache right!!  AJ decides that friends are the only way to keep from getting her heart broken by him.  Friends is all they are going to be until….maybe he can open his eyes to what is in front of him???  NAW Friends it is……maybe????

When Rhett finally opens his eyes and SEES AJ for what she is, who she is, and the love they share, it was amazing read.

I loved the story and seeing the old the characters.  IF you are not up on that series its totally ok because, to be honest, I haven’t read the entire series either!!!  The lack of the past story lines didn’t stop me from loving the book at all.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast

Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father.  Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige.  Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.

Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure –  one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.

And that position would be filled by him.
