SADDLES AND SIN by Jessie Evans (Guest Post & #Giveaway)



Robert “Bubba” Lawson, hero of SADDLES AND SIN interviews the author:

Robert: So…Bubba. What made you decide on that for a name? You like to make things hard for your heroes?

Jessie: No! That name has a special place in my heart. My best friend when I was toddler was named Bubba. We live on neighboring farms in Louisiana. We were the only toddlers around and our moms were besties, so I guess we had to be friends, but I still have very warm memories of him.

Title: Turn On A Dime - Kade’s Turn
Author: Tiffany Snow
Release Date: August 25, 2014
Genre: Romantic Suspense
It only takes a second, a fraction of a second, to forever change your life. That moment happened to me years ago. I did something you can’t take back, and I’d do it again. It’s a secret I’ll take to my grave—which is probably sooner rather than later—and that’s okay. I live with my choices.
Three things I’ve learned—bad things happen to good people, life isn’t fair, and the bad guy doesn’t get the girl. And I’m most definitely the bad guy.
I’ve always made my own decisions. I’ve never apologized for them, and I never will. Regret is an emotion I’ve never had to face.
Until now. Until her.
She once told me that what I did, killing people for a living, wasn’t good for my soul. I told her I was beyond saving. The truth is that I’m not worth saving. Not anymore.
But when I look in her eyes, I wish I was the man she deserves, the man she loves.
My brother.

The wait is over. They fell in love in Melt Into You, but that was only the beginning. Now New York Times bestselling author Roni Loren dials up the passion as three lovers reinvent the meaning of togetherness and find out if love is truly enough…

Two dominant men, one beautiful woman. Jace Austin knows he doesn’t have what you’d call a conventional relationship with Evan and Andre, but it works. Boy, does it work—until Evan starts acting strangely and Andre’s ex-fiancĂ©e pops back into his life, unbalancing a perfectly happy threesome. Jace is forced to face the unthinkable: that the two people he cares most about in this world are in danger of slipping away from him.

So Jace plans a surprise getaway to a secluded mountain cabin for the three of them. And he knows exactly what he needs to do: give both his lovers a fantasy week they’ll never forget. And the possibilities for pleasure are endless. But when they get snowed in and the heat between them reaches a fever pitch, secrets come out. And Evan has one that could change all their lives forever.

Once the night comes . . .

Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can't control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.

Love must cast aside the shadows . . .

Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she's the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.



Thoughts:
“Before he could say a word, she moved closer and pressed her smooth palm to his scar.
He nearly swooned. Clutching the chair at his side, Will swayed into her space, lured by the luscious heat and pleasure that she gave him with that simple touch. A moan escaped him.
"Interesting," she murmured.

He would kill her. Just for that. "I do believe I hate you, Miss Evernight."

Firelight caressed her skin as she gave him the smallest of smiles. "Your sense of humor is odd."
He hadn't been joking.” 

AE Jones' MIND SWEEPER (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to AE Jones who is joining us with her paranormal romance, MIND SWEEPER!



We are What we Eat & Drink


First of all, I want to thank you for inviting me to Reading Between the Wines. And I have to confess right away, that Kyle, the heroine in my Mind Sweeper series, is a beer drinker. Great Lakes Dortmunder to be exact. Hopefully after that confession, you will still let me stay….okay?….good!

So my confession got me thinking about how characters are revealed to us (the reader) in a variety of ways. Whether right or not, what someone eats or drinks paints a picture of them. Wine connoisseur vs. beer drinker. Tofu eater vs. BBQ junkie.

Cal Logan is shocked to see Nicole Bentley sitting across from him at a coffee shop thousands of miles from their hometown. After all, no one has seen or heard from her since they graduated over a year ago.

Except this girl isn't Nicole.

She looks exactly like Cal's shy childhood crush, but her name is Nyelle Preston and she has no idea who he is. This girl is impulsive and daring, her passion for life infectious. The complete opposite of Nicole. Cal finds himself utterly fascinated-and falling hard. But Nyelle is also extremely secretive. And the closer he comes to finding out what she's hiding, the less he wants to know.

When the secrets from the past and present collide, one thing becomes clear: Nothing is what it seems.

#BookReview: Second Chance Ranch by Cindi Madsen - 5 Wine Glasses

Rating: 5/5

Sometimes love is right where you left it.

Sadie Hart has a plan: return to her small town of Hope Springs so she can regain her confidence—and bank account—before giving one more shot to her country music dream. The dream that means more to her than anything. The dream she chose over her high school sweetheart, the brooding and sinfully handsome Royce Dixon.

Royce has moved on from his memories of the beautiful Sadie. Now he’s focused solely on running Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work. But when he needs a new employee and Sadie’s the only one to volunteer, he has no choice but to offer his old flame a job.

Whether riding a horse with the wind in her hair or mucking out the stalls, Sadie can still get Royce’s heart beating like no one else. But Nashville is her dream, and Royce can’t settle for second best.


Thoughts:
Sadie scooped up a big pile of crap and placed it in the wheelbarrow.  Royce turned to leave, but then she said, "You know, when I quit my last job, I told my boss I'd rather shovel horseshit than work for him." ....

Damn, damn, damn.  He wanted to stay mad at her -- to hold on to how badly the girl had hurt him when she'd left him the way she had.  But years had passed, and here she was, thanking him for the opportunity to shovel shit.
