Book 3 in the Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers series

All of Eugenia Snowe’s problems start when Edward Reeve, an arrogant bastard son of an earl, bursts into her registry office. He wants a governess and he wants her. She gives him the governess he demands, but she refuses to give herself.

No question that Eugenia enjoys crossing wits with the brilliant inventor, but she will never tarnish her reputation with an affaire, particularly with a man who doesn’t realize she’s a lady!

She holds her ground…until he kidnaps her.

Ward will stop at nothing to convince Eugenia that they’re meant to be together. He promises her heaven.

She gives him seven minutes.

ABOUT ELOISA: A reviewer from USA Today wrote that she “found herself devouring [Eloisa’s] book like a dieter with a Hershey bar”; People Magazine raved that “romance writing does not get much better than this.” Eloisa wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got a couple more degrees and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. Over twenty best-sellers later, she teaches Shakespeare in the English Department at Fordham University in New York City. She’s also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.

He teaches her how to make coffee. She teaches him how to love. #amreading #western #romance

calliope-creek-postcardTrent was a loner, a man of few words. All he wanted or needed in his life was his ranch: Calliope Ranch in the picturesque town of Meeker, Colorado, near the prosperous and booming city of Calliope Falls.

That was until Riley swept into his life like a bright, beautiful whirlwind.

Riley grew up surrounded by wealth, in a family that practically owned the entire city of Calliope Falls.

Riley had no idea how to make a pot of coffee let alone run a ranch.

Riley had spent her entire life being being controlled and ridiculed by her demanding grandfather and selfish mother.

Until she defied them by moving to Meeker, Colorado and fighting to show she could make it on a working ranch – her ranch. The ranch she inherited from her father. The ranch that happened to be next door to Trent’s. At first, Trent resented Riley’s presence.  But little-by-little, the beautiful whirlwind swirled around his heart. And when tragedy strikes, Trent realizes that his life as a loner is about to change forever.

DeANN SMALLWOOD AUTHOR BIO: I live in Colorado with my husband and my two Yorkie kid dogs: Stormy, four pounds, and Eli, six pounds. I’m a native of Colorado, but I’ve lived several years in Wyoming and Montana. I draw from these beautiful states for most of my books. My Western Historical Romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie, One Shingle To Hang, and Wyoming Heather and One Shingle To Hang. Tears In The Wind is a contemporary romance. Then I changed genres from my beloved romances and wrote, under the pen name of D. M. Woods, my first suspense/thriller: Death Crosses The Finish Line. The second book in this ‘death’ series, Death Is A Habit, came out January 8, 2014. I am currently working on the third book in the ‘death’ series, Death Walks C Dock. I am also working on another Western Historical Romance, Montana Man. It features the characters readers came to know and love in Montana Star. Truly, I mean it when I say my greatest pleasure next to writing is having my books read and enjoyed. There are many more stories just waiting to be written

She didn’t expect to fall in love. And then she met him. A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING Patricia McLinn #amreading #romance

d3dfe98a-9d47-42bd-b21a-222384ad3220

Today’s REVOLVING BOOK is the BRAND NEW RELEASE: A MOST UNLIKELY WEDDING by USA Today Bestselling Author Patricia McLinn.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

The Kiss Was a Rehearsal, Did She Forget to Say ‘Cut’?

Filmmaker Kay Aaronson left New York for small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, to jumpstart her career. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan. When Kay’s leading man stalks off the set of the music video she’s shooting at the historic Bliss House, the town’s wise and beloved Miss Trudi invites recent divorcee Rob Dalton to take the part. Kay sets the scene, increasingly distracted by this businessman who’s far more handsome than her missing star. When her hands-on direction leads to a fiery kiss, the sparks are visible for all to see. Everyone thinks they’re right for each other, but nobody knows the secrets they’re harboring. Or what it might mean if those secrets became public. Will Rob and Kay let fear determine their fate, or risk allowing themselves to explore where that first kiss might lead?

A Most Unlikely Wedding, Book 3 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s Marry Me series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair, and Jill Shalvis.

Praise for A Most Unlikely Wedding:

“I couldn’t put it down!” — Amazon Review 

“I was not only wanting to find out what happens with Kay and Rob, but was dying to know their scandals and what would happen with them. And the whole town of Tobias is filled with interesting characters. Two thumbs up!” — 5-Star Amazon Review

“(McLinn’s)  characters go through really great growth, both within themselves and with each other, … It makes it that much more satisfying.” — Amazon Review

“Kay is feisty and fantastic, Rob is hunky and frustrating … They’ve both got stuff going on that’s making it hard for them to be completely open with each other — and with the reader, which adds a whole new level of anticipation to the reading.” — Amazon Review

Praise for the Marry Me series:

“With her two latest books set in a perfectly realized and perfectly charming small town, McLinn has created two beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read.” – John Charles, American Library Association

“Gifted Patricia McLinn has written another wonderful series filled with emotion and romance.” — CataRomance Reviews

“McLinn has done a marvelous job creating the stories in this series.” — Fresh Fiction

STELLAR REVIEWS:

“An unexpected treasure … This romance is a nice ‘escape read’!” —  5-Star Amazon Review

“Ordinary, and yet unforgettable, characters in an endearing story readers will treasure.” – 5-Star Amazon Review

“McLinn delivers a wonderful romance. … I hope she never stops writing them.”  — 5-Star Amazon Review

“A heart-warming tale.” – 5-Star Amazon Review

SNEAK PEEK:

“Stand here, and watch.”

Kay dashed up the stairs to Laura’s mark, spun around and found the actress studying her nails. “Laura!” She waited until the younger woman looked up, then pinned her with her eyes. “Watch. Because next time I want you to do it exactly like this.”

She drew in a breath, set the mood in her head, and only then did she look at Rob.

He looked up at her. His face was serious, but there was something so alive in his eyes she couldn’t look anywhere else. 

He had extraordinary eyelashes. In an utterly masculine face, they were thick and lush and dark, both top and bottom, so from a distance they gave the impression his eyes were dark, almost smudgy. But at this distance, and especially with his eyes trained on her so intently, between the dark, dense fringe shone silvery eyes flecked with green and brown. 

Unending eyes.

She started down the steps to him. Not because her timing dictated the move, but because she wanted to see those eyes closer. When he stepped up and held out a hand to her, her pace quickened. One more step—

And then she was there, in his arms, He drew her in. She wound her arms around his neck. Their mouths met.

And Kay Aaronson burst into flames.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Turning forty, for research technician Lannie Marvin, is rough. It’s the day she discovers her husband is leaving her. At work, a crazed mouse brutally bites her. Lannie snaps. She heads off to chase the object of her newest crush, drummer of a heavy metal band—and an old dream of composing music.

Tristan Allard, said drummer, holds a benefit concert every year in memory of his wife. The musician is beginning to doubt his ability to write music without her inspiration. Plus, he’s damn lonely. So when a sexually charged woman literally plows into him at the backstage reception, Tristan is ready to learn more about her—and her long-buried interest in musical composition.

This new chance at life and love has them both euphoric, but reality bites back. Tristan is headed back to the UK to audition his latest album. And Lannie soon learns an elevated libido isn’t the only side-effect of that experimental drug.

It’s a musician’s worst nightmare—the drug Lannie was exposed to have rendered the mice deaf.

STELLAR REVIEWS!:

From Maia Silverdagger, Silverdagger Book Tours, 5 stars:

“Powerfully emotional with plenty of ups and downs, I was completely enraptured and found myself quite unable to put this book down!”

From Sarah Ann (Amazon), 5 stars:

“I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an amazing story of love and romance, yes, but also of growth and finding yourself and who you were truly meant to be!”

From B (Amazon), 5 stars:

“The character development was so good in this book and had me feeling so many emotions. I laughed, felt a little sad, held my breath and cheered…”

SNEAK PEEK:

I caught my brother watching me in the rearview mirror. He was wearing an impish grin. “For a while there,” he said, “we were afraid your mother might run off with one of the roadies.”

The next words popped out of my mouth before my brain had a chance to stop them.

“To hell with the roadies. If I run off, it will definitely be with the yummy drummer.”

AUTHOR BIO:

Christine Mazurk is a business woman and Ironman triathlete with a passion for writing stories about ‘heart’. Her business experiences and participation in endurance events have allowed her to live and travel the world with her husband John and their two cats. She believes things happen for a reason. Their two 18-year-old cats died within three months of each other, and though she and her husband agreed to wait at least a year to adopt new kittens, their new guardian angels in heaven had a different idea, so thirteen days after the second one passed, on a cold, wet, Christmas Eve, a little black kitten – now named Tango – found them. They adopted Samba, another all black kitten, a few weeks later.

THE STORY:
The heart of change is the change of heart.

Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.

CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.

And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!

CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back.

After all, life is about making choices.

Even if it means leaving a stable career.

Even if it means leaving friends and moving half-way around the world.

Even if it means living with her mother’s rejection.

Even if it means losing her heart.

Even if it means risking her very life.
