A Letter from Liliana Hart:

Dear Readers,

I’m thrilled to announce the MacKenzie Family World is returning! I asked four of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.

These stories are hot, hot, hot and packed with action and adventure—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story. It was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover four new authors to put on your auto-buy list.

Make sure you check out Spies and Stilettos, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. This will be the final installment of the MacKenzie series, featuring Brady Scott and Elena Nayal. After eighteen books of my own and nine books written by other bestselling authors in the MacKenzie World, it’s going to be difficult to say goodbye to a family I know as well as my own. Thank you for falling in love with the MacKenzies.

So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

Love Always,
Liliana Hart

#Interview with Jessica Scott of After I Fall

 Our guest today has been here before and has an excellent wine glass review average. Welcome back, Jessica Scott!

Lexi: The last time I interviewed you, you mentioned your new adult series that would be set at a ‘prestigious private university in the Southeast’ and that series is The Falling series. Is AFTER I FALL the end of this series?

It’s not going to be the end of the series. In reality, After I Fall spins off from the Fallings series b/c It’s not set at the college but rather in the bar the PINT, which is featured in both the previous books. There’s going to be at least two books that center around the Pint, as it stands right now.

4 Wine Glass #Review for Renegade's Pride by B.J. Daniels

Rating: 4 out of 5 Wine Glasses

Trouble has come back to town, and this time, he's not leaving without her

In the nine years since Trask Beaumont left Gilt Edge, Lillian Cahill had convinced herself she was over him. But when the rugged cowboy suddenly walks into her bar, there's a pang in her heart that argues the attraction never faded. And that's dangerous, because Trask has returned on a mission to clear his nameand win Lillie back.

Trask gets the showdown he's after when his boss's body is recovered from a burning house. Hawk, Lillie's marshal brother, believes Trask's homecoming isn't coincidental to the murder, but Lillie isn't so sure. Something is urging her to give bad boy Trask a second chance, even if it leaves her torn between her family and the man she never stopped loving.

Linda's Thoughts:

Getting over her had been impossible. A day hadn’t gone by that he hadn’t thought of her, yearned for her. Sometimes he felt as if he couldn’t breathe if he didn’t see her again. He’d had to come back to make things right no matter how it ended.

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club… 

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

(Body Armor #2)
by Lori Foster 
Kindle Edition, 384 pages
Expected publication: March 21st 2017 by HQN Books
Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous… 

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she's sweet and intriguingly innocent. It's a risk-free assignment, until he's required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it's not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that's real, raw and absolutely against the rules…

#Giveaway of Beauty and the Beast: Classic Tales About Animal Brides and Grooms from Around the World by Maria Tatar

In preparation for the Disney live-action film, Penguin Classics is releasing a new edition of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, edited by preeminent fairy tale scholar and Harvard professor Maria Tatar. As you may know, Disney’s live-action 3D musical film starring Emma Watson premieres on March 17th and this new edition celebrates the classic fairytale and other human-animal “tales as old as time.”

Nearly every culture tells the story of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in one fashion or another. The partnering of beasts and beauties, of humans and animals in all their variety has beguiled us for thousands of years, mapping the cultural contradictions that riddle every romantic relationship. In this fascinating volume, fairy tale scholar Maria Tatar brings together tales from ancient times to the present and from a wide variety of cultures, highlighting the continuities and the range of themes in a fairy tale that has been used both to keep young women in their place and to encourage them to rebel, and that has entertained adults and children alike. With fresh commentary, she shows us what animals and monsters, both male and female, tell us about ourselves, and about the transformative power of empathy.

Reasons Law Enforcement Agents Make the Best Book Boyfriends with Tamara Morgan of Stealing Mr. Right + #Giveaway

Top 5 Reasons Law Enforcement Agents Make 
the Best Book Boyfriends

Ah, book boyfriends. They’re the best, aren’t they? They never leave the toilet seat up, their breath is always minty-fresh, and their post-argument groveling is practically guaranteed. In the romance world, they also tend to sport six-pack abs and have mad skills both inside the bedroom and out of it.

If you’re like me, your book boyfriends are also the type to honor, cherish, and protect. There’s just something extra swoon-worthy about law enforcement agents, whether they’re FBI agents like the hero of Stealing Mr. Right or men in another type of uniform. Although I could probably spend hours listing all the reasons why a man with immediate access to a pair of handcuffs is an ideal mate, I’ve narrowed the list down to my top five.

They Just Might Find The Recipe for Love

Josh’s plan should be easy, except Kimmie isn’t all cupcake underneath. Her cooperation comes with a price. If Josh wants to save his family’s company, he’ll have to do something he’s never done: be himself.

Happy #BookBirthday to The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan

(Roommates #2)
by Kendall Ryan 
Published March 13th 2017
His best friend's little sister is all grown up … and ready to play in a whole new way.

Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
