#Spotlight on Illegal Contact by Santino Hassell

(The Barons #1)
by Santino Hassell
Kindle Edition, 251 pages
Expected publication: August 15th 2017 by InterMix
The rules of the game don’t apply off the field in this first Barons novel.

New York Barons tight end Gavin Brawley is suspended from the team and on house arrest after a video of him brawling goes viral. Gavin already has a reputation as a jerk with a temper on and off the field—which doesn’t help him once he finds himself on the wrong side of the law. And while he’s been successful professionally, he’s never been lucky when it comes to love.

Noah Monroe is a recent college grad looking for a job—any job—to pay off his mounting student debt. Working as Gavin’s personal assistant/babysitter seems like easy money. But Noah isn’t prepared for the electrifying tension between him and the football player. He’s not sure if he’d rather argue with Gavin or tackle him to the floor. But both men know the score, and neither is sure what will happen once Gavin's timeout is over…

It will take a Christmas miracle to melt her heart.

Resort developer Madison Lane is about to lose the one thing she loves most in the world—her job. Dubbed "The Grinch Who Killed Christmas," Madison spoiled a deal that would turn quaint Christmas, Colorado, into a tourist's winter wonderland. Now the citizens want her fired but the company gives her one last chance, sending Madison to the small town to restore the holiday cheer.

For Sheriff Gage McBride, no hotshot executive from New York City is going to destroy the dreams of the people he loves. But one look at this beautiful woman and it's his heart that may be broken. In just a few days, Madison causes more trouble than he's had to deal with all year. He can't decide if she's naughty or nice, but one thing is for certain—Christmas will never be the same again...

Linda's Thoughts:
“He stood in the open door, hands planted on the roof of the Suburban. "I've never had a woman tell me I gave her nightmares before, but plenty have told me I played a prominent role in their dreams.” 

Marley Rose’s Back to School List from Knight on the Texas Plains by Linda Broday + #Giveaway

Marley Rose’s Back to School List

This is fun to think about. If Marley Rose, Duel and Jessie's adoptive daughter from Knight on the Texas Plains, was old enough she’d go to a one-room country school. Here’s her list of supplies:

  • One slate
  • Chalk
  • A 1st grade McGuffey Reader
  • Scissors
  • An Apple for the teacher
  • A lunch pail

Crayons weren’t invented yet but she might have glue. Maybe new ribbons for her hair and a new pair of shoes. Duel and Jessie worship this little girl so she’d have more than most did back then.

Duel McClain was no knight in shining armor --- he was a drifter who prided himself on having no responsibilities. But a poker game thrust him into the role of father to an abandoned baby, and then a condemned woman stumbled up to his campfire. The fugitive beauty aimed to keep him at shotgun's length, but obvious maternal instincts belied her fierce demeanor. And she and the baby were clearly made for each other. Worse, the innocent infant and the alleged murderess opened Duel's heart, made him long for the love of a real family. And the only way to have that would be to slay the demons of the past.

#Spotlight on Donna by V.C. Andrews + #Giveaway

DONNA is the second of the four Girls of Spindrift e-novellas, all of which together form a prequel for Bittersweet Dreams!

(Girls of Spindrift #2)
by V.C. Andrews
Published August 14th 2017 by Simon & Schuster
Book Two of the Girls of Spindrift. From the New York Times bestselling author of the Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series, now Lifetime movies, continues a haunting new series featuring highly intelligent teenage girls who struggle to survive a specialized high school and find their place in a world that doesn’t understand them.

Such is the burden of being brilliant.

Being gifted is not something Donna ever wanted. It’s difficult enough to have a Latino father and Irish mother, and her genius only separates her even more from the other girls. They don’t say it, but they blame her for everything that goes wrong, just because she’s different.

And on the precise day she tries her hardest to fit in, everything turns out a disaster. A fight breaks out, and somehow Donna ends up in the middle. It’s not her fault, but it’s her word against theirs, and this time, the other girls aren’t going to stay quiet. The only solution might be to escape to the mysterious school her counselor is telling her about: Spindrift.

Back to School—Wolf Style with Terry Spear of SEAL Wolf Undercover + #Giveaway

Back to School—Wolf Style

When Jillian and Vaughn have kids, and some years after that, they’ll homeschool their kids. Why wouldn’t they go to school?

They’re part-time wolves, and so they need to learn to be wolf pups—to learn how to identify things out in the wild, how to survive, how to watch for danger, both flora and fauna in the wild, weather conditions, and natural disasters. As human kids—to learn all the things kids learn, reading, writing, arithmetic, and more. They practice play-fighting for future encounters with wolves, the way to act and react around both their own kind and pure wolves. How to react in situations when encountering other wildlife too, both as humans and as wolves. They’re more aware of their surroundings, partly because of their enhanced wolf senses, but also because they are at such risk when they run as wolves. That’s all part of their schooling.

(Gravediggers #3)
by Liliana Hart
Kindle Edition, 384 pages
Published July 25th 2017 by Pocket Books (first published July 24th 2017)
Return to New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s romantic suspense series, the Gravediggers, with this thrilling game of cat and mouse between a member of the Gravediggers and the brilliant woman hot on his heels.

Sometimes the dead do rise…

Dante Malcolm is a man of refined tastes. He was once a part of Britain’s Elite Intelligence Force, but there was a reason he’d never been able to capture Simon Locke, the notorious thief who always seemed to be one step ahead. That’s because Dante and Simon were one and the same, until Dante’s double life eventually caught up with him and now he belongs to the Gravediggers.

Eva Rothschild is a Detective Inspector with Interpol and is the one responsible for catching MI-6’s most notorious agent in his final heist—except the heist killed him. But something has never felt right about his death, and it’s haunted her for months. It was too easy, and Dante Malcolm was too smart to go down that way.

Dante might belong to the Gravediggers in body, but his heart and soul will always belong to the next job. The rest of the team doesn’t know about his alter ego because he made sure the information went missing from his file. So when the job he’s always waited for seems like a possibility, he sneaks out of the country like a thief in the night, only to run into the only woman who’s ever been able to match him in wit—and passion—for the job. Except they’re standing on opposite sides of the law—and only one of them can walk away with the prize.
