A Scandalous Wedding, a Second Chance

Annette Trevetti, poor and unpolished, was a modern-day Cinderella about to marry her Prince Charming. Until a very pregnant woman strutted into the church — staking a claim to Annette’s fiancé.

The wedding was off and Annette was gone, the awful consequences of a family secret Steve Corbett had hoped would never rear its head. But now a single father, he can’t wish it never happened, because it brought him the daughter he adores.

When a family incident finally draws Annette back to small-town Tobias, Wisconsin, after seven years, she and Steve must face each other, their mistakes, their yearning for a long ago love, and the reality that they can never go back to the innocent days before a wedding that went so wrong.

Drawn together by shared concern for a beloved elderly friend, they must step out of the past’s shadow to save her and her home. But that shadow could blight their love a second time.

Trailer: http://bit.ly/1RCcQeU

A TAMING SEASON BLURB:

Manhattan domestic violence counselor Zoe Anderson is going on the most important vacation of her life.

Before she can move on, help other women, Zoe needs to heal herself. Her Cinderella life shattered three years ago one fateful night, leaving her a young widow, scarred inside and out. In an attempt to reclaim her life, bury her demons, and save her job, Zoe sets out for picturesque Lake George to claim the treasured family cottage she recently inherited. Her therapist’s advice: Reboot, restore to an earlier time.

What she finds is a rundown shack.

The neighboring resort mogul, Jason Rolland, whisks in to her rescue, insisting Zoe stay at his upscale Lakeview Lodge. The wealthy, handsome bachelor has a bank account as big as his ego, along with his own nighttime radio show where he plays the love guru of Jason’s Lair. He figures he might use the gifts God gave him to convince the sexy redheaded stranger to give up the crumbling eye-sore next door. A challenge he’s definitely up for. Besides, he’s been trying to buy the cabin—and demolish it—for years: the last reminder of his own tragic, childhood memories.

Zoe can’t deny her attraction to the tall, dark-haired Jason with his pool-water blue eyes. Definitely fling material—if she can just get past those flashbacks from the night everything changed. And the knowledge that when it comes to happy-ever-after, you usually don’t get a second chance. Certainly not possible with the Tiger of Jason’s Lair.

What Jason doesn’t figure on is Zoe’s charms melting his emotional armor, exposing his own bruised, battered heart. But with his reputation, can he ever win her trust & love? Can a tiger really change his stripes? Or will their pasts come back to bite them both?

STELLAR REVIEWS:

From Mollyspatsy (Amazon) 5 stars: “I really enjoyed this book! I slowed down at the end, because the main characters meant something to me and I didn’t want to miss them.”

From LJT, Romance Junkies, 4 Hearts: “Zoe’s tragic past broke my heart into a million pieces, because of the way Ms. Gem tells her story.”

From Amazon Customer, 5 stars: “A gem from Gem! A Taming Season was my favorite book by Claire Gem so far. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.”

SNEAK PEEK:  Zoe snatched her glasses out of Jason’s hand and perched them on top of her head. Unfortunately, she forgot she had the beach hat on. The glasses tumbled into the sand, and she heard Jason chuckle as he bent to retrieve them.

He straightened, but made no move to hand them over. Slowly, he brought them to his lips and, staring into her eyes the entire time, blew gently on the lenses, one at a time, to free them of sand.

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:

Life is about the risks we take and the courage we display. For Natalie Walsh, switching from orthopedics to sports medicine lands her a job with team Fear US and Fear US2 setting her on a journey toward her true destiny.

She’s a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire who’s running from her past and searching for her proper place in this world. The annual team trip to Guam allows her to put the most distance between herself and her troubles, but places her face-to-face with the one person who challenges her ability to trust.

Mike Dawson, owner of the resort where the team stays, is known as the island’s surfer-dude playboy. He’s happy to show the beautiful tourists a good time, because he’s all about the short-term. No risk. No commitment. He vows to help the buttoned-up doctor relax and learn what island life is all about.

Even with spiritual forces at work, she still believes running will keep her safe. Physically. Emotionally. And though Mike continues to fight the magnetic pull, he’s more drawn to her each day.

For these two, things are not always as they appear, but will they listen to the Universe and have the courage to change for a better tomorrow?

Book 1: Prelude to a Wedding

The free spirit: Paul Monroe 

Charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly . . . and all that charm — and sexiness — is aimed at you. 

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton’s hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment when all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

Book 2: Wedding Party

The best man: Michael Dickinson

Michael Dickinson is delighted to be best man at his friend’s wedding – but there’s one complication. Tris Donlin is a bridesmaid. He’s wanted her for longer than he cares to remember, but to her, he’s just good old Michael – college pal, confidant, best buddy … Would a few days of wedding celebration let him finally get her out of his system once and for all?

Her cousin Paul’s wedding party has Tris’s head and heart full of memories of college days with him, Michael and their friend Grady. Grady was her college crush and Michael was her buddy. Now that they’re all grown up, my how things have changed.

She’s certain she’s found the best man for her . . . if only she can convince him.

Book 3: Grady’s Wedding

The last bachelor: Grady Roberts

Grady Roberts has never been the marrying kind — and he still isn’t. But after watching his best friends walk down the aisle and start families, flipping through his little black book and ordering take-out for one suddenly seems boring …and lonely. Yet the one woman who intrigues him keeps him at arm’s length.

Leslie Craig is human. She feels the full effect of handsome, intelligent, wealthy, successful Grady’s attraction . . . and his loneliness. It’s the last element that snags her heart. She’s developed a knack for helping people with problems and sorrows without ever revealing her own. Can she do that for Grady?

Or, if he discovers the truth, will he hurt her so deeply she’ll never recover?

What do you get when the new ranch owner is a socialite and the foreman is a tough cowboy? You get a 5-Star Patricia McLinn romance! #amreading #western #romance

nafm_ebook_NOT A FAMILY MAN is a 5-STAR MUST READ!

I have never read a book by this author that I didn’t love and want to read again. This story pits a crusty cowboy against a socialite who has escaped a stifling marriage and wants a better life for her children. The story pleases on all levels. The characters grow, change, explore and finally recognize the rightness of their choices. Highly recommend!” – Amazon 5-Star review

“… Well-fleshed-out characters, true-to-life adventure and sensuous love scenes. This is the kind of book you read more than once just for the nice, warm feeling it leaves with you.” — Rendezvous

“… Well-fleshed-out characters, true-to-life adventure and sensuous love scenes. This is the kind of book you read more than once just for the nice, warm feeling it leaves with you.”

— Rendezvous

“I’ve become a huge Patricia McLinn fan.”

— 5-Star review

With one exception, the rooms Jenny glimpsed as their ragged procession trailed Tucker Gates’ long strides were clear of all extraneous decoration. In fact they were lifeless. Sheets covered large shapes that could be a sofa, a chair, a dining-room table, but in the dim light they resembled huge, wily beasts — or an overcrowded graveyard with blank headstones. The drapes were closed, the walls bare.

With no offer of help with their luggage from either Tucker Gates or Deaver Smith, they’d each grabbed the overnight case Jenny had insisted they carry on-board “in case.”

She’d been thinking along the lines of lost luggage, not a sojourn in the Addams Family mansion.

NOT A FAMILY MAN

Not a Family Man, the story of Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates and the new owner for the Double Bar X, divorcee Jenny Peters, is the prequel to The Forgotten Prince, the upcoming Book 7 in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed Wedding Series.

Tucker was skeptical of Jenny’s city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West. But she wasn’t going to let him scare her away from the new life she wanted to build for herself and her kids. No matter that he could be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that Jenny found totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.

But what next? Because Tucker Gates was a lot of things, but he was absolutely clear that he was not a family man.
