READERS LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

HERE’S WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING:

…tender insight, bright humor and flawless character development.…Another delightful, funny, yet heart-wrenching must-read romance from Higgins. —Kirkus, starred review

Zingy dialog and hilarious asides…pair with thoroughly appealing characters and plenty of Finger Lake country charm to make this refreshing riff on the classic marriage-of-convenience plot a delightfully unorthodox, captivating winner.
—Library Journal

Higgins is one of those authors you can always count on for a great story.”
—Top Pick, ★★★★ ½, Romantic Times

The revelation of truly human emotions and pains make [Tom and Honor] characters to root for.
—Publishers Weekly

— ★★★★ ½, Top Pick, Night Owl

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

What if the perfect match is a perfect surprise?

Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now—a mere three weeks later—Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend. But resilient, reliable Honor is going to pick herself up, dust herself off and get back out there…or she would if dating in Manningsport, NY, population 715, wasn’t easier said than done.

Charming, handsome British professor Tom Barlow just wants to do right by his unofficial stepson, Charlie, but his visa is about to expire. Now Tom must either get a green card or leave the States—and leave Charlie behind.

In a moment of impulsiveness, Honor agrees to help Tom with a marriage of convenience—and make her ex jealous in the process. But juggling a fiancé, hiding out from her former best friend and managing her job at the family vineyard isn’t easy. And as sparks start to fly between Honor and Tom, they might discover that their pretend relationship is far too perfect to be anything but true love…

DEATH CROSSES THE FINISH LINE by D.M. WOODS (suspense/thriller)

DeathCrossesFinishLine_850-1Friday’s Fantastic Find is the suspense thriller DEATH CROSSES THE FINISH LINE by D.M. Woods (aka DeAnn Smallwood)

http://www.amazon.com/Death-Crosses-Finish-Line-ebook/dp/B008G0YXB8/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1362083762&sr=8-7&keywords=deann+smallwood

PUBLISHER: SoulMate Publishing

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Carrie Preston has a puzzling and mysterious gift for sensing motive, desire and direction of a perpetrator and killer. Homicide Detective Tom Watts recognizes this gift and is not beyond exploiting it. Waking one midnight to the ringing telephone, Carrie knows the voice on the other end.

Tom begins his familiar plea, asking for her help in solving recent murders that appear to be connected. A pattern develops of brutal knifings in health clubs with the victims all women. What is the tie in? Carrie protests she doesn’t need Tom Watt’s brand of sickness, but she cannot help feeling the familiar draw both to solving the tragic killings and to Tom Watts.

Carrie and Tom chase clues throughout Colorado from Denver to the famous ski town of Aspen, stopping over to recoup and enjoy each other’s company in the world famous Hot Springs Pool at Glenwood Springs. Carrie and Tom may be getting closer as they follow the horrendous trail, the sites of brutal and gruesome deaths, but so is the killer. Closer to Carrie that is. Suspense mounts with each murder, each clue, and every sensation that Carrie follows toward revelation. In a parallel line, the growing tension between Tom and Carrie increases and builds. Both resolutions promise like terror-risk and danger. Will the killer change his pattern and decide to make Carrie his next “special treat, his bon-bon”?

REVIEWS:

Carrie Preston has a gift she thinks most people have, but keeps locked within themselves. She’s happy with her life teaching seminars on how to unlock your inner potential. So why does she agree to help Lt. Tom Watts with a chilling serial killer? But the draw of the case – and the man himself, has her climbing out of her warm bed and heading to a grisly murder scene.

Lest I spoil the story for you, I won’t say more than get a copy of this book. D. M. Woods has constructed a riveting tale, with strong characters, and a fast paced plot. To say I couldn’t put the book down is a major understatement. Ms Woods has started a fantastic series, and I wait with bated breath for #2. Colleen Greene w/a Callie Hutton

SYNOPSIS/BLURB
For three best friends, one winter will change everything.

Chronically optimistic Jayne is surprised she’s still single at twenty-eight. But as always for Jayne, there’s hope. This time his name is Gray—a successful, gorgeous marketing VP that she can’t believe is going out with her. She’s never given up on the belief that the right man for her is out there. Maybe Gray could be the one…if she just works hard enough to make it happen.

Her cynical friend Karen is suspicious of Jayne’s new guy with his model looks and over-inflated ego. She’s concerned for Jayne, but has her own relationship to worry about. Not that anything’s wrong with her boyfriend. He’s actually perfect for her, which is why she’s terrified. Not sure she can ever fully trust a man again, she considers bailing on yet another relationship.

Claudia is always there for her friends, mothering them like the children she craves to have. Happily married, Claudia anxiously awaits the day her husband finally agrees it’s time to start a family.

’Til St. Patrick’s Day is a novel about the depths of friendship and what happens when love doesn’t go according to plan.

REVIEWS:
Review from Debbie at Literati Book Reviews:
“The development of characters is written in such depth that you feel a deep sense of connection to each of the women. …With the author’s ease of putting words on paper, the story flows through your mind, connecting on a deep emotional level. You will find yourself hoping, gasping, shedding a tear or two and smiling with happiness as the story unfolds.”

Review from Victoria Lawson at BestChickLit.com:

“If you like a good love story, then this should be on your ‘to read’ list. Gilliatt creates characters who you connect with… The reader is placed in the middle of these three women’s lives; you experience their ups, their downs and their own journeys of self-discovery. You genuinely care about what happens to the characters, which is half the battle, and certainly not an easy one! …If you’re a sucker for a love story, then this novel will definitely give you a ‘happily ever after.'”

Review from Angie at Pink Fluffy Hearts:

“Wow did I love this book. From start to finish, I was engaged with the characters and the plot…. Jane, Karen, and Claudia’s stories wove together very nicely, and made me wistful that other books don’t always successfully convince me that the main characters are such close friends. It was a heart-warming story with a satisfying ending even though parts of it made me tear up…. Obviously the main theme of this novel was friendship, but it’s followed very closely by love—and not just romantic love. To anyone who likes to read stories about these themes, you HAVE to read this book. It’s fantastic.”

Review from Catriona Merryweather at Fabulous Book Fiend:

” A wonderful debut novel about changing your perspective when it comes to relationships. I was hooked into this story right from the word go… All three women are written as very strong characters and I’m sure that most readers will be able to identify with at least one of them, if not all of them, as I did… There are several unexpected twists and turns which will keep the reader guessing until the end as to how everything is going to turn out for these women as well as several ‘aww’ moments but make sure you keep the tissues handy as there were a few times I found myself welling up… A fantastic chick-lit novel, fun, identifiable and well worth a read!”

Bestselling western romance authors, Kat Flannery and Alison Bruce take you on an exciting journey…

Twin sisters separated by war, bound by love…

After the death of their father, twin sisters Maggie and Matty Becker are forced to take positions with officers’ families at a nearby fort. When the southern states secede, the twins are separated, and they find themselves on opposite sides of America’s bloodiest war.

In the south, Maggie travels with the Hamiltons to Bellevue, a plantation in west Tennessee. When Major Hamilton is captured, it is up to Maggie to hold things together and deal with the Union cavalry troop that winters at Bellevue. Racism, politics and a matchmaking stepmother test Maggie’s resourcefulness as she fights for Bellevue, a wounded Confederate officer and the affections of the Union commander.

In the north, Matty discovers an incriminating letter in General Worthington’s office, and soon she is on the run. With no one to turn to for help, she drugs the wealthy Colonel Cole Black and marries him, in hopes of getting the letter to his father, the governor of Michigan. But Cole is not happy about being married, and Matty’s life becomes all about survival.

READERS LOVE THIS BOOK!

“Maggie and Matty Becker will enchant you as they struggle for respect, survival, and love in the Civil War’s troubled time. You’ll sigh with pleasure as you finish each story.”
—Caroline Clemmons, author of Bluebonnet Bride

“Two very talented authors . . .The characters and the times are well depicted in this short novel. I highly recommend this novel to Civil War enthusiasts and readers who enjoy a well-written historical romance. If you like intrigue, mystery and romance, this book is for you. It will hold your attention and is a quick read that you won’t be able to put down.” —Katherine Boyer, Tear a Page Blog

“Double your reading pleasure with twin passions—two novellas featuring twins Maggie and Matty, and heroes who’ll steal your heart. Alison Bruce and Kat Flannery penned stories that play on your senses like a sonata. A must read!” —Jacquie Rogers, award-winning author of Much Ado About Madams

ABOUT ALISON BRUCE:
Alison Bruce has an honors degree in history and philosophy, which has nothing to do with any regular job she’s held since. A liberal arts education did prepare her to be a writer, however. She penned her first novel during lectures while pretending to take notes.

Alison writes mysteries, romance, westerns and fantasy. Her protagonists are marked by their strength of character, the ability to adapt (sooner or later) to new situations and to learn from adversity.

ABOUT KAT FLANNERY:

Kat Flannery has loved writing ever since she was a girl. She is often seen jotting her ideas down in a little black book. When not writing or in school, she enjoys snuggling on her couch with a hot chocolate and a great book.

Kat has had her writing published in numerous periodicals. She is now hard at work on the next novel. When not focusing on her creative passions, she is busy with her three boys and doting husband.

Twenty years ago Maximus Batten witnessed the brutal murders of his parents. Now the autocratic Duke of Wakefield, he spends his days ruling Parliament. But by night, disguised as the Ghost of St. Giles, he prowls the grim alleys of St. Giles, ever on the hunt for the murderer.

ABOUT ELIZABETH:

Elizabeth Hoyt is the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of historical romance, including reader favorite, The Raven Prince.

Elizabeth was born in New Orleans but grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was fortunate to be able to travel extensively as a child, visiting St. Andrews, Scotland; Germany; France; and Belgium. She spent a year in Oxford, England and was a summer exchange student to Kawasaki, Japan.

Elizabeth has a BA in anthropology from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and, as a result of having no clue what to do with her life thereafter, a career history as a barista, a (terrible) sales clerk, a Wisconsin Revenue Service data entry slave, and an archeological field work grunt. Fortunately, Elizabeth married relatively young and produced two children who kept her busy until her mid-thirties. At about this time, when her youngest was entering Kindergarten, Elizabeth’s mother hinted that perhaps Elizabeth should get a Real Job.

Sadly, Elizabeth was so delusional she thought writing a romance novel might qualify as a Real Job.

But! Five years later, to everyone’s surprise, she actually sold that romance novel (The Raven Prince) and began a rather successful career as a Romance Novelist. This was most fortunate since Elizabeth is singularly unqualified to do anything else but Make Up Stories.

Since then Elizabeth has written thirteen books to critical acclaim: The Prince Trilogy (The Raven Prince, The Leopard Prince, and The Serpent Prince); the Legend of the Four Soldiers series (To Taste Temptation, To Seduce a Sinner, To Beguile a Beast, and To Desire a Devil); and the Maiden Lane series (Wicked Intentions, Notorious Pleasures, Scandalous Desires, Thief of Shadows, Lord of Darkness, and the upcoming Duke of Midnight .) All of Elizabeth’s books are set in eighteenth century England and all feature a fairy tale story that serves as a foil to the main story.

Elizabeth lives in central Illinois with a pack of untrained canines and a garden in constant need of weeding.

GIVEN TO YOU by CARLIE SEXTON (erotic romance thriller)

CarlieSexton_GivenToYou_2500pxFRIDAY’S FANTASTIC FIND is the erotic romance thriller GIVEN TO YOU by CARLIE SEXTON (The Killer Next Door, Part 3).

BUY IT ON AMAZON: http://amzn.to/18meZHf

ABOUT THE BOOK:

To give is a virtue. But to give your very self, the ultimate bequest. Offered in love, it can be wondrous. Offered in desperation, it can be deadly.

In Book Two of this three-part epic, young and tempting Kate Simmons at last seemed to have reached a safe haven of happiness when she moved in with Neil, ambitious and persevering, both in his legal practice and his love life.

Taking great care to protect his trophy and the surprise he had in mind for Kate, Neil hired security to accompany his soon-to-be fiancée on a scavenger hunt of a lifetime. As Book Three continues their saga, it is life itself that is in the balance when Kate becomes the hunted as the jilted Roger snatches his prey.

The obsessed minds of Neil and Roger now take aim squarely at each other — with a bare and exposed Kate directly in the crossfire. Knowing her very life will be the winner’s spoil, Kate stares agony in its ghastly face as it approaches for the death dance.

There is no time, no place, no safety in a war of fixation. A war in which the winner will be either the last one standing, or the last one to die.

REVIEWS:
“This story for me is beyond just a 5 star read. It has so much to offer all readers. Whether you love romance, a little domination, and suspense. Carlie did a fantastic job with character development to the point that even though Kate and Neil’s story maybe at an end you will still be craving hearing about her other characters.” Weet Weet’s Bookshelf

“Carlie Sexton concluded this wild ride with Roger with an amazing book in Given To You! I love Kate and I had it bad for Neil. Carlie did a great job keeping my attention through all three books so far and I was completely addicted to the sheer angst and irritation of this one! Well played Carlie, well played. You kept my attention from the beginning and I was afraid to put down the book for Kate’s sake… I felt like I was witnessing so much of this story through the writing.” The Boyfriend Bookmark

“What a great ending to a great series! We really wanted to take an opportunity and highlight how unique this book/series is in our eyes. Most books we read have the typical boy meets girl, boy messes up, girl leaves, boy creates grand gesture to win girl back, boy and girl lives happily ever after. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE all these books but it’s also refreshing to read something a little different. We found “that different” in The Killer Next Door series!” The Divas Book Blog

“If you like a great suspenseful read with some hot sexy scenes to go along with it then this series is for you. You MUST read the them in order.”
5 HUGE Stars!! Feisty Girls Book Blog.

ABOUT CARLIE:
Carlie Sexton has had a passion for reading her entire life. She loves it so that she dedicated her life to educating children. As a teacher, she has had the profound pleasure of teaching children to read and explore their imaginations through a good book. Just recently she decided to write a story that had been on her mind. Now she has several that she wants to turn into additional books. Writing has become a passion that she dearly loves.

Carlie lives with her handsome husband in Southern California. They enjoy the relaxed lifestyle that California provides. They have two beautiful dogs, but on children.

SNEAK PEEK:

In a secluded corner of the Rock Heaven restaurant, Philippe brooded. He struggled with the notion that so many people had expressed their sympathy for a man he never knew existed until his death. He checked the room, once again seeking the long dark brown curls and slim figure of Roxanne St-Clair.

He braced himself when he noticed her. She was heading his way and her ankle length black dress accentuating her slim waist.

She switched her cola to her other hand and extended her hand. “I’m Roxanne St-Clair.”

Despite noticing anger in her eyes, he shook her hand. He wondered how her soft hands would feel caressing the rest of his body. Philippe mentally shook himself. “Philippe Lafrance, but you already know that.” To his annoyance, silently she settled in the seat beside him and toyed with the straw in her drink.

Finally, she shrugged, “I didn’t know George had a grandson. Imagine my surprise when his lawyer told us the news a few days ago.”

Her comment hit a sore point. He averted his gaze. Past experience taught him raw emotions left a person vulnerable. It was the last thing he wanted this woman to pick up on, his vulnerability. Anger he could deal with, but sympathy infuriated him. He’d already spotted it on her face. If she knew how much he hurt…

Philippe drained the last of his beer. “That makes two of us.”

Her eyes widened in shock at the news, only to shrink into small slits. Sharp as a whip, she’d picked up on his sarcasm.

“I have a hard time believing that,” said Roxanne harshly.

“This will come as a surprise, but I really don’t care what you or anyone else believes.” He met her glare with one of his own. “So what was the bastard really like?”

He winced at her sudden sharp intake of breath and instantly regretted the slip. Her eyes darkened to a deep hazel. His words now lay between them like a heavy cloth ready to smother them both.

“Don’t you dare speak of George like that. You have no right to criticize him, especially on the day we buried him.”
