Parker Cruse despises cheaters. It might have something to do with her boyfriend sleeping with her twin sister.

After a wedding day prank involving a strong laxative, that ends the already severed relationship between the twins, Parker decides to grow up and act twenty-six.

Step One: Move out of her parents’ house.

Step Two: Find a job.

Opportunity strikes when she meets her new neighbor, Gus Westman. He’s an electrician with Iowa farm-boy values and a gift for saying her name like it’s a dirty word.

He also has a wife.

Sabrina Westman, head of a successful engineering firm, hires Parker as her personal assistant. Driven to be the best assistant ever, Parker vows to stay focused, walk the dog, go to the dry cleaners, and not kiss Gus—again.

About Jewel:

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.

Traitor by Alyson Santos – Cover Reveal

Traitor
Alyson Santos
Publication date: June 6th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

They may be refugees but Andie Sorenson never chose to flee when government forces abduct her to the “safety” of a military-operated compound. Caught in an ugly civil war no one understands, she’s now a number, a uniform, her future reduced to three stale meals a day with the strangers who share her fate. She’s nothing, no one—until a random act of compassion and an electric smile turn her prison into a refuge.

It’s his eyes, his heart, his beautiful soul drowning in an ocean of secrets. Lance Corporal Kaleb Novelli is an enigma, but with each plunge through another layer, Andie finds herself captured in a way she never imagined. She knows they have no future. They can’t even have a present, but that doesn’t stop her heart from committing to a man she can never have. The only one she trusts in this battle of lies and manipulation.

But they’ve found their paradise in hell, and she can’t shake the feeling that Kaleb Novelli is not just a player. He’s the game.

Author Bio:

I’m a writer, musician, and cat lover. I also have an alternative music obsession. Seriously, it’s a real problem.

I write what needs to come out, whether it’s pain, tears, or laughter. I write people and relationships, about the beauty and horror of what we do to ourselves and each other. I write Love. Vengeance. Compassion. Cruelty. Trust. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Darkness, and the incredible way humans destroy and heal each other.

I like to eradicate barriers, refusing to be confined by the laws of physics or limitations of reality. I will befriend a vast population of possibilities and introduce them in ways that might surprise you.

Making Faces by Amy Harmon

On Amazon : http://amzn.to/2peXzzi

Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She’d been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have…until he wasn’t beautiful anymore.

Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast where we discover that there is little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

Why? Why in the hell did I wait so long to read this book? Just….WHY? This book floored me. It was everything I hoped it was going to be and then it was even more than that. Nothing on earth is better than a book that takes it’s time, builds not just characters, but an entire world full of places and people that you can see clearly in your mind. OMG did I love this book.

Every character was amazing, real, believable. I felt like I knew every single one of them. There is something amazing about an author who is willing to take her time and introduce you properly to every character. Nothing is a throw away here, there is intent and purpose behind each person, each scene and each and every word. I loved Fern. She was absolutely amazing and completely different than any other female lead I’ve read. And I loved Bailey. And I especially loved Ambrose, again, he was like nothing I ever read before.

The best part about this book… Amy Harmon broke all the rules. This book does a ton of things romance books aren’t supposed to do and I LOVE it more for that. This book made me think, made me cry, made me laugh, made me appreciate and consider and feel. The entire time I read it, I just kept thinking…. how? How can a book be this absolutely amazing? How can an author be this good? How did it take me so long to read this book?

Breslin
I was in love with Asher Holden the moment I saw him…and I knew nothing would ever be the same.
Then he hurt me. He wrecked me. He ruined me.
I spent three years putting myself together fixing what he broke.
I never thought I’d see him again after that day.
I was counting on it.
Little did I know life had other plans…and things were going to become a lot more complicated.

 


Asher
I finally know who I am. I own it, I embrace it…I’m no longer afraid.
I live my life with no regrets now, because I’ve learned my lesson the hard way.
I thought I had it all figured out.
But then my past collides with my present…and things become complicated.
Turns out I don’t really know myself after all.

 


Landon
My life was all mapped out.
I knew exactly what direction I was heading in I didn’t have time for any roadblocks or obstacles.
Then I meet her.
And him.
Now, my heart is split right down the middle.
She controls the rhythm. He controls the melody.
Complicated doesn’t even begin to cover it…and there’s only one way this can end.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Susan Garwood – Wicked Women Designs

Release Date: 6th June, 2017

BLURB

Love is blind.
Love is false.
Love is deceitful.
Until him.

My fairytale ending turned into a nightmare soon after I gave the man I thought was perfect my vows. Like the coward I was, I remained in my prison for too long. But there was one light amidst all the darkness – my daughter, Ailith.

Now, I’m a 33-year-old woman, living with her mother in a little town in Scotland that’s quiet but safe, trying to keep the family business afloat.

When will I find the courage to live again?

One day, a glance from a stranger brings me a sliver of hope that I haven’t believed in since I was young.

Will it be enough?

Love is a lie.
Love is an illusion.
Love is painful.
Until her.

She made me trip over my own two feet – made me yearn for the very thing I’ve avoided all my life: love. But she didn’t love me back. I had to escape my memories somehow, and I fled to Scotland.

Now, I’m more lost than I’ve ever been, trying to forget the woman who managed to soften my cynical heart.

Will the hole in my chest ever heal?

One day, the sorrow in a woman’s eyes causes me to trip again. My heart beats anew, and when she finally allows me to see her, I’m filled with hope.

Will she give in to me?

For Laura and Kristian, everything changes with just one glance. But can two people who have been burned in the past open their hearts and learn to love again?

Author’s Note: While this is book #3 in The Believe Series, it can be read as a standalone novel. Includes a hot-as-sin tattoo artist, a stubborn Scottish woman, horses, and lots of swoon-worthy moments. You have been warned.
