Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey
Series The Academy Series
Genre Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher Avon Books
Publication Date January 30, 2018


Is there a problem, Officer?

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?




One kiss.”
He takes a step forward, his big chest rising and falling. “I know I’m pushing it, Snaps. But I’m dying over here.”
I’m dying, too. No denying it. This attraction is very bad for my mental and physical health. He probably won’t even show up tomorrow night. His romantic comedy costar will distract him with an invitation to eat grapes on a sun- drenched rooftop somewhere and I . . . I could never get another chance to kiss this outrageously beautiful man. This trip to New York isn’t only a career opportunity, it’s a chance to shake off my comfort zone.
Do it, Katie. Don’t regret it. Don’t be a coward. What’s the worst that could happen?
Just one, then,” I whisper.
His green eyes go molten as he takes two big strides and swoops in. I hear my backpack hit the ground and then nothing, nothing, but Jack’s mouth has any part of my focus.
What’s the worst that could happen?

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

New Release Spotlight:The Trouble With True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke



The Trouble With True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke
Series n/a; standalone
Genre Adult Historical Romance
Publisher Avon Books
Publication Date January 30, 2018


Dear Lady Truelove, I am a girl of noble family, but I am painfully shy, especially in my encounters with those of the opposite sex . . .

For Clara Deverill, standing in for the real Lady Truelove means dispensing advice on problems she herself has never managed to overcome. There’s nothing for it but to retreat to a tearoom and hope inspiration strikes between scones. It doesn’t—until Clara overhears a rake waxing eloquent on the art of “honorable” jilting. The cad may look like an Adonis, but he’s about to find himself on the wrong side of Lady Truelove.

Rex Galbraith is an heir with no plans to produce a spare. He flirts with the minimum number of eligible young ladies to humor his matchmaking aunt, but Clara is the first to ever catch his roving eye. When he realizes that Clara—as Lady Truelove—has used his advice as newspaper fodder, he’s infuriated. But when he’s forced into a secret alliance with her, he realizes he’s got a much bigger problem—because Clara is upending everything Rex thought he knew about women—and about himself. . .

“Well, well,” he murmured, “with every look and every word, the little lamb with the big brown eyes
proves she’s not as defenseless as she first appears.” Clara felt a spark of frustration at his
descrip- tion. She might be plain and possess a shy, quiet disposition, but she was not some
helpless, dependent creature.
“Is that what I am?” she asked as they turned in a circle, moving in the steps of the dance. “A
little lamb?” She opened her eyes deliberately wide. “And I’m lost in the woods, I suppose, and
you’ll come save me?”
“Save you? I doubt it.” His gaze lowered, paus- ing at her lips. “Ravish you would be a sight more
likely.”
Clara’s heart gave a panicked thud, slamming into her ribs with such force that it broke her con-
centration. She trod on his foot, lost her balance, and would have stumbled, but he caught her,
letting go of her hand to wrap his arm around her back. “Careful,” he murmured. “Dance with me much
longer and you’ll be in danger.”
“You warn me, Lord Galbraith, but I cannot help wondering why.”
“You’re in my arms.” He pulled her a fraction closer. “Make no mistake, my lamb. You are in very
great danger.”

Happy Release Day: The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon



THE SMALLEST PART
by AMY HARMON
Cover design: Hang Le


Heart breaking. Heart healing. Heart melting. The Smallest Part, a contemporary friends-to-lovers romance is now available on all platforms.


In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” - Unknown
It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”
If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.
This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.





Amy Harmon is a Wall Street JournalUSA Today, and New York Times Bestselling author. Amy knew at an early age that writing was something she wanted to do, and she divided her time between writing songs and stories as she grew. Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she developed a strong sense of what made a good story. Her books are now being published in eighteen different languages, truly a dream come true for a little country girl from Levan, Utah.
Amy Harmon has written thirteen novels - the USA Today Bestsellers The Bird and The Sword, Making Faces and Running Barefoot, as well as the #1 Amazon bestselling historical From Sand and Ash, The Queen and The Cure, The Law of Moses, The Song of David, Infinity + One, Slow Dance in Purgatory, Prom Night in Purgatory, and the New York Times Bestseller, A Different Blue. Her novels The Bird and the Sword and From Sand and Ash were Goodreads Best Books of 2016 and 2017 finalists.

Release Day Review: Hidden Fate by Tara Thomas

Hidden Fate (Sons of Broad #0.6)Hidden Fate by Tara Thomas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Hidden Fate picks up where Shattered Fear left off as Janie Roberts life is threatened.

More groundwork is laid and evidence it exposed as Janie and Brent plan to leave Charleston for Washington DC.

Although this is the second prequel in this series, it is possible to start the series here, although as both are novellas, I recommend reading Shattered Fear first.

The pace maintains its fast speed and we begin to learn more about the Gentleman and the man working for him as they increase their intimidation towards Janie. As the intrigue increases, I can't wait to find out how this will all play out. I have my suspicions, but time will tell if I'm correct.

Series Blitz: The Darcy Brothers by Alix Nichols



Title: THE DARCY BROTHERS BOX SET
Author: Alix Nichols
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Darcy Brothers Box Set:
A fake marriage, an office hook-up and a lost email... turn the lives of 3 French aristocrat siblings upside down in this sexy rom-com bundle.

Over 700 pages of family secrets, unexpected twists and breathtaking romance.

Follow stuck-up Sebastian, bad-boy Raphael and vengeful Noah as each meets his match where he least expects to, and falls madly in love!

BOOK 1: FIND YOU IN PARIS
What does it take to fall in love with your enemy? a) His private jet. b) His six-pack abs. c) His unsuspected charm.

WARNING: Just like in Pride and Prejudice that inspired this book, expect to find one rich and handsome Mr. Darcy and one feisty girl who can't stand him. Unlike Pride and Prejudice, this enemies-to-lovers romance also contains artful nude photos of said Mr. Darcy, a fake marriage, and nights of wild passion in Paris.

BOOK 2: RAPHAEL'S FLING
One bookish assistant. One cocky CEO. One Christmas party that changes everything...

GUARANTEED: Belly laughs, hot love scenes, a secret baby and a happy ending for this lust-to-love romance. You'll stay up late to finish this book!

BOOK 3: THE PERFECT CATCH
When brooding goalie Noah meets perky realtor Sophie, sparks fly hot and fast... 

BEWARE: A dangerously endearing dog, meddling parents, eccentric neighbors, and a crumbling French chateau.





Alix and Mr Darcy
Me and Mr. Darcy

Full disclosure: I’ve been in love with Mr. Darcy since I was twenty

And not in a casual yeah-he’s-cool kind of way.

I’m a devotee.

I’ve read Pride and Prejudice three times, including the wonderfully helpful annotated edition by David M. Shapard, which explains every period detail that can be explained. I also own a copy of every Pride and Prejudice TV series and movie ever made, and I have watched each of them at least twice. Six times in the case of the 1995 BBC mini-series, of which I own three copies. (What if one won’t play when I need it? What if the second won’t play either?)

Finally, I’m the creator of the Ultimate and Authoritative Darcy Hotness Chart. You can check it out here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/386324474268007114/.

Before you do, can you guess who’s my Darcy #1?

Colin Firth from the BBC mini-series, of course! The Incomparable, the Forever Young, the One and Only.

In light of the above, it’s only natural that I wrote a romance inspired by Pride and Prejudice. It’s titled Find You in Paris, and its hero is called Mr. Darcy. Actually, his real name is Count Sebastian d’Arcy du Grand-Thouars de Saint-Maurice.

You see, all my contemporary romances are set in modern-day France. Hence, my Mr. Darcy is French. He resides in Paris (when he’s not in his ancestral château in Burgundy). He’s rich, tall, dark, and brooding – and oh-so-hot.

Just like the guy on the cover of the book. 

The heroine, Diane Petit, is a cashier and amateur photographer. Diane is as independent, feisty, and witty as Elizabeth Bennet. And, she’s just as prejudiced against Sebastian as Jane Austen’s Lizzy is against Fitzwilliam Darcy.

Sebastian has two brothers, Raphael and Noah Darcy. Each of them got his own love story and a happily-ever-after.

The Darcy Brothers box set includes all three novels.


I hope you enjoy it!





Alix Nichols is an unapologetic caffeine addict and a longtime fan of Mr. Darcy, especially in his Colin Firth incarnation. 

She is a USA Today bestselling (April and June 2017) and Kindle Scout winning (December 2015) author of sexy romance novels that readers describe as yummylicious. According to Romantic Times, her books "will keep you hanging off the edge of your seat”. Kirkus Reviews claims they “deliver pure pleasure”. 

At the age of six, Alix released her first romance. It featured highly creative spelling on a dozen pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper. 

Decades later, she still writes. Her spelling has improved (somewhat), and her books have topped the Amazon charts around the world. She lives in France with her family and their almost-human dog.
