Oh happy day!!!,  March 21, 2017
Trigger took me back to my happy place ... way back when I very first stumbled upon Scarlett Dawn with her King Hall ~ Forever Evermore Series. MEMORIES!!!!! 
If you've read that series then you know how addictively intoxicating her shifters are. Especially the alphas!

If you are new to her work then you should prepare yourself for action packed, drama filled, attitude spewin', hotness that may or may not leave you hanging' on a mega cliff until the next release! She creates worlds that engulf the senses & refuse to fit inside the "normal" box. There will always be a character (or two) who would rather die than submit to the rules. BTW...these worlds may not always feel "realistic"...which is exactly why I love them. I am instantly transported to wherever her vivid mind takes us, & details are never lacking. As with every book I have read of hers, I want MORE more MORE & by the time I realize I am on the last page it is much too late!

Trigger hit every one of these reasons on the head for me. 
From the rebellious Poppy who just wants to prove herself capable of making her own decisions to her overbearing father & his soldiers who just want to do what's "best" for her & their women to the king of the shifters & his peeps who nobody ever knew existed. Even with an undeniable attraction she chose to leave & make her own way in the world. Until fate stepped in to reveal it's true plan.
And that's when it got REALLY good!

But, for realz, who wouldn't hope to find some ridiculously HAWT immortal to fall for & save the world/rebuild it with if we humans had destroyed our planet/population anyway?

Bobbins & Boots Release Blitz & Giveaway

 Bobbins and Boots
by Shanna Hatfield
 How does an act of kindness result in… marriage?

Born dirt-poor into a life of hardship, Allie Tillman seizes the opportunity to better her situation by answering an advertisement for a mail-order bride in the West. Upon her arrival in Baker City, Oregon, she discovers her intended is a low-down, lying thief. Determined not to marry him, she grasps at the one thing that will keep him from forcing her to be his wife — marrying another man.

Good-natured cowboy Ben Amick had no idea a simple trip into town would completely change his life. When he happens upon a mail-order bride desperate to avoid marrying her fiancé, Ben does the first thing that pops into his head and marries her. Willingly, he gives her the protection of his name and his arms, never expecting her to capture his heart.

Humorous, heartfelt, and awash in sweet romance, Bobbins and Boots captures the tender and tumultuous emotions of falling in love.

Genre: Western, Historical Romance

Finally, he let his gaze settle on Miss Tillman. The hope sparkling in those beautiful eyes made him lose the ability to think with any reason or sense.

Words spilled out of his mouth even though he had no idea where they originated. “It looks like you need a husband, Miss Tillman. If you aren’t opposed to that man being me, I’d be pleased to marry you.”

“I wouldn’t be opposed, Mr. Amick.” A blush covered her cheeks, making the freckles that dusted them stand out in contrast to her smooth skin.

Ben fought down the urge to give her a comforting hug. Instead, he took a step back and looked to Edwin. “If I go find Pastor Eagan, do you think we could exchange vows in your parlor?”

“Certainly, Ben. We’ll be ready when you return.” Edwin slapped him on the back with a broad smile as Hattie hurried up the front steps, tugging Allie along behind her.

Turn Tables Blog Tour & Review

Turn Tables
by Stacey Rourke
Expected Release Date: Mar. 14th, 2017
Between private jets, designer labels, and lavish resorts, Tandy Owens should be having the time of her life. Her celebrity author best friend is getting married and all of Hollywood’s elite have turned out for the event. Unfortunately, Tandy’s mood is far from celebratory. 

For over a year her heart has been torn between two men: Matthew Cruz, the brilliant, well-educated entrepreneur who makes her feel like a queen, and Mateo, his womanizing musician alter ego, who is known for collecting platinum records, and the panties of his sexual conquests. Matthew assures her that Mateo’s antics are all a show. Even so, with her being the only one to witness his softer side, Tandy begins to wonder which persona is truly the act. 

In the sizzling heat of Miami, Tandy reaches the breaking point with their secretive romance, and finds herself asking if a hidden love is truly worth fighting for?

Genre: Contemporary RomanceRomCom


A Romantic Comedy full of drama & giggles! Turn Tables is the perfect twist of the telenovela you can't turn away from meets Popstar Mr. Suave. A fabulous play on Jekyll & Hyde that had me feeling every bit of Tandy's emotions simultaneously from her love & desire to her very valid fears & worries along with those butterflies in the tummy with each glimpse cast her way.  Matthew could melt an iceberg while Mateo could send a forrest ablazin'! One of fave characters Bree is back with all of her adorableness! Her & Kole go together like PB&J. I just love their conversations...especially when Mommy dearest arrives! His not so unreasonable fear of the huge bear stalking their wedding is quite hilarious as well. I definitely look forward to more of these characters & the very real world romances they bring us. 

Adapted for Film: http://amzn.to/2lUincj
Turn Tables (Pre-Order): http://amzn.to/2ldDMZO

Adapted for Film
Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden. 

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books. 

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels? 

If you are looking for a light-hearted, funny read to indulge in poolside, look no further!
