#Spotlight on Deadly Aim by Tracy Brody & #Giveaway

50718920. sy475 Deadly Aim
(Bad Karma Special Ops #2)
by Tracy Brody 
Kindle Edition
Published March 31st 2020 by Tracy Brody Books

Widowed Black Hawk pilot Kristie Donovan is determined not to fall for Mack Hanlon, the Army sniper she saved on a mission tied to a drug cartel. Army regulations about rank mean Mack is off-limits. Besides, she’s not risking what’s left of her heart on another man in Special Ops. But when Mack insists on protecting Kristie from a fellow soldier with a grudge, he sparks her hope for a second chance at love.


Mack’s marriage failed because his ex-wife was done with all things Army. Now he wants to find a woman who understands his drive to serve and protect—a woman like the attractive Black Hawk pilot who pulled off the daring rescue mission. All he has to do is break through her defenses.

Mack’s victory is in sight when they learn the same cartel has targeted Kristie due to her connection to the men behind the death of the drug lord’s son—Mack’s Bad Karma Special Ops team. Though Mack is determined to protect Kristie, she has her own plan to keep herself, Mack, his daughters, and the Bad Karma team out of harm’s reach. But when the cartel captures her before she acts, can Mack and his team save her from the drug lord aimed at getting vengeance against them?

#Interview with Lorraine Heath of The Earl Takes a Fancy

The Trewlove family are no strangers here! And today we get to talk about the youngest daughter…Fancy. Not only do we get to talk about her, we get to talk to the woman who created her! Please join me in welcoming, Lorraine Heath!

Lexi: It’s almost as if you’ve been saving the best heroine for book five. Almost, because we’ve had Gillie, Selena, Aslyn, so many amazing women. But now, we finally get Fancy’s story! And the cherry on top that makes her extra perfect: she runs a bookshop. Yes, dear readers, you read that right. Fancy runs a bookshop. Lorraine, what was your favorite thing about writing a heroine in this career?

Lorraine: Lexi, thank you so much for having me at Reading Between the Wines Book Club. Wine is one of my passions and I like nothing better than curling up with a glass and a good book. Also, I’m glad you’re enjoying the Trewlove. I rather fancy them myself. ☺

My favorite thing about writing a story involving a bookshop proprietor was Fancy’s absolute passion for all books—all genres, all types—and her dedication to sharing that passion with others. She recognizes the importance of reading, not only for its joy but for the worlds it opens.

(Kings of Country #1)
by Sasha Summers
Paperback, 1st edition, 416 pages
Published March 31st 2020 by Sourcebooks Casablanca
Let the music carry you away in this brand-new series featuring the King family and their country music dynasty

Music is all he has...but is it enough to heal them both?

Jace Black went from an oilfield roughneck to an overnight singing sensation. Now he's working on a duet with country music legend Krystal King, and he's determined to earn his way to the top. But the more time he spends with Krystal, the more he finds himself falling for her--and he's beginning to be more interested in her than he is in making a name for himself.

Krystal King grew up on stage and in the spotlight. No matter how golden her life appears, her past left deep wounds. But Jace Black makes her wish things were different. To do that, she'd have to risk letting him in... And that might be too big a risk for her battered heart to take.

Read an #Excerpt from Sexy Love by Carly Phillips

48120863. sy475 Sexy Love
(Sexy #4)
by Carly Phillips
Kindle Edition
Published March 24th 2020 by 1001 Dark Nights Press
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a new story in her Sexy series…

Learning curves have never been so off-limits.

Professor Shane Warden is on the verge of getting tenure. He never thought he'd see the day, after a false accusation from a student years ago that nearly destroyed his career, and decimated his ability to trust. But the moment he walks into class and lays eyes on the seductive blonde with legs that go on forever and lips he immediately wants to kiss, he knows he’s in trouble.

This time for real.

Single mom Amber Davis is finally living her dream of going back to college. In the ten years since she dropped out to have a baby--and recover from his father's death--it's been the goal that always felt just out of reach. Until now. But one look at her hot, sexy professor, and Amber is head over heels in lust. It doesn’t take long before their attraction blazes out of control.

Neither of them can afford a forbidden affair.
Yet it's the one thing they are powerless to stop.

It will only take one hint of a rumor to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve... and in this case the rumors are true.

#Interview with Linda Howard and Linda Jones of After Sundown

Imagining the worst is something that everyone does and with the climate changes we’re seeing, it’s easy to believe the premise of AFTER SUNDOWN could happen. But what would it really be like in a small town post apocalyptic-episode? Let’s pour some wine for our guests today and find out! 

Lexi: Welcome and congratulations on the publication of AFTER SUNDOWN! This book starts with Sela’s normal life before it’s upended. And there’s also a thriller aspect to it, so Sela’s normal life in a tiny, sleepy town in the Smokey Mountains is tinged with something bad’s coming. How did you come up with the something bad that’s headed her way?

Linda Howard: We plot on the fly, meaning we don’t know what’s going to happen until we get to that point. In the initial planning stages we’d thought the people in Wears Valley would be most threatened from the outside, by gangs trying to plunder their meager supplies. But when it came down to dealing with the most logical threats, that would’ve been from people they knew, people who were already there. Every neighborhood has a troublemaker — or twenty. Right?

Linda Jones: We did a lot of research on solar storms, after we came up with the idea for the initiating event. The possibilities are endless, and if you get caught up in “what if” it can lead down a very scary path. While a solar storm this devastating isn’t likely, it could happen. The trick was to find a way for our characters to not just survive, but thrive. We weren’t looking to write a truly apocalyptic novel, though an event like this one would be very different in some places than it might be in a small town like Wears Valley.

My Favorite Places with Kat Martin of Pivot


Over the years, I’ve written a number of blogs about my favorite places.  I just discovered a new one so I thought I would tell you about it.

I’ve never been a big fan of the desert.  I do love the Saguaro cactus, the red rock mountains, and some of the incredible vistas.

But the small town of Prescott called to me as no place in the Sun State ever has.  Perhaps it’s the combination of beautiful mountains, which being a Montanan I love, and the rugged Old West history of the town.

The Palace Saloon on Whiskey Row is one of the oldest in the country.  It’s got a mile-long bar and an old-fashioned back bar, and even has batwing doors!  The folks inside come to work in Wild West costumes, giving the place an even more authentic feel.
