Excerpt

“Mia, come on, talk to him. See if he’s cheating on you. You’re obviously getting a feeling that he’s doing something wrong if you’re asking me to do this. It’s a little extreme for me to go ‘undercover,’” Gabby said, using quotations with her fingers on the word undercover, “to see if your boyfriend is cheating on you.”
“Since when are cheaters honest? Like he’s going to say, ‘Yeah, Mia baby, I’m not cheating on you.’ He’d never admit it.”
She rolled her eyes. “Oh, God, does he call you baby? That’s so…so…disgusting.”
“It’s sweet. It rolls off his tongue like butter melting on a piece of warm bread. I love it when he calls me that.”
“If you say so. Look, Mia, I can’t take a week off work to go incognito at his work. There’s no way in hell I could lie on the application about prior employment. It’s not in me to lie like that.”
“You don’t have to lie. You were a secretary before.” Mia smirked. “That’s another quarter.”
Gabby raised her eyebrows in disbelief, almost spitting out the small gulp she had consumed. Then she rolled her eyes. “Stop making me swear. I’m blaming you. And I was a secretary when I was nineteen. I’m twenty-nine now. We’re a little too old to be playing these games. Talk to him.”
“I can’t. I don’t want to see him lie to my face.”
“If you think he’s cheating, I repeat—dump. His. Ass.”
“You’re almost up to a dollar.”
“Mia!” Gabby knew she was trying to irritate her.
“I need solid proof before I confront him.” Mia produced another pouty face that was hard to resist. “I need you to do this. His secretary is on maternity leave. It’s only a temp position, so it’s not like you’d be lying that much when you leave after a week. He’s been talking about how all the applicants have been horrible. He’ll hire you on the spot. I know it. Like you said, one week. That’s all I’m asking. I need to know. Then I can dump the lying, cheating, scumbag for sleeping around on me.”
Gabby gulped the rest of her drink, wiping her hand across her lips as if she gained a mustache from the sweet red wine. “How do I let you talk me into shit like this?” She groaned. “Yes, I know, I now owe a dollar.”
Mia screamed in delight, grabbing Gabby around the waist. “You’re the best bestie ever.”
“Fine, bestie. One week. No more.”
“Yes! I knew I could count on you. His name is Champ Holloway.”
“I can’t believe I’m agreeing to this.”

Blog Tour for MR. KNIGHTSBRIDGE by Louise Bay!

 

  MR. KNIGHTSBRIDGE by Louise Bay Release Date: July 7th   
    


    

   Blurb: Dexter Daniels prefers gems over women. Emeralds over girlfriends. Diamonds over marriage. He might be the most successful jeweler of his generation, a loyal friend and some say the most handsome man in London, but his past means he doesn’t deal in love. When Hollie Lumen enters the ballroom where exquisite royal jewels are on display, she brings Dexter’s world to a screeching halt. Despite her hand-me-down dress and borrowed shoes, Hollie is even more stunning than the jewelry. Feisty, funny and ferociously independent, she’s all Dexter can see. Hollie Lumen can’t catch a break. She thought an internship in London was her chance to escape her responsibilities back in Oregon and for her dreams to come true. When she’s fired only a few weeks after touching down, she’s ready to give up and go home. Hollie never asks for help. She knows the only person she can rely on is herself. So what’s she going to do about the tall, dark, handsome stranger who keeps rescuing her? She’s going to rescue him right back. Mr. Knightsbridge is a stand-alone romance.   

      



This is an entertaining read that will captivate you from the first page and it won’t let you go until you have read the final line so please be prepared to read in one sitting.
Dexter Daniels is not looking for a relationship, his heart and soul is engrossed with his business, a rich and powerful man who is not looking for love comes across a strong, sassy funny woman who could just be changing his mind about love....
Hollie Lumen has just arrived in a London when she comes across a tall dark handsome stranger who goes by the name of Dexter what follows is a girl determined to rescue her knight in shining armour because what may have started with him rescuing her soon turns into him needing to be rescued from himself.
This book ticked all my boxes, the chemistry was sizzling, the characters adorable, the banter witty as well as some hold your breath moments all made this a great read.



Dexter Daniels and Hollie Lumen intrigued me from the first to the last chapter and I was fully invested in the story that Louise Bay wove.

Having been badly burned in the past, Dexter is focused on his business, rather than looking for love. He is a rich, powerful, determined man; he gets what and who he wants, when he wants. Both Dexter and Hollie are independent and strong characters and I found them likeable and easy to relate to.

Hollie makes me laugh, she’s feisty,sassy and there is just so much humour in her and some of the best moments throughout the book are when she calls Dexter out on his behaviour. She is determined to rescue her knight in shining armour from himself, even as he comes to her rescue time and again. For these two to make a success as a couple there was plenty of give and take required from both of them.

I loved both Dexter and Hollie, separately and particularly as a couple, their connection was intense and you could feel the air sizzle between them. Not only was it steamy but it is an emotional read that will get to you on a number of levels. They both come from two completely different worlds and at times my heart broke for both of them but through it all I was cheering that they would get the happily ever after that they both deserved.




What a wonderful story! Mr Knightsbridge had my attention from the start and I didn’t want it to end!
I loved how Hollie embraced being in London, far away from her family, to do something foer herself other than caring for her sister!
The way she meets Dexter is wonderful and the banter between them was entertaining! Needless to say he really has to work for her attention, something he has never experienced! I loved him, especially when he was with his friends!!
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this fun storyline and really wondered if life would head in the direction Hollie should have hoped it would go! I also loved Hollie’s sister and how she wanted her sister to live her life in a happy way!!
A book I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend reading!

Blog Tour: Making Whoopie by Erin Nicholas

mw bt banner

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen...

Making Whoopie, an all-new not-to-be-missed marriage of convenience romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

MW Cover

This marriage of convenience is about to get sticky. Getting hitched for the health insurance is not Jocelyn Asher’s idea of romance.
But the hospital quote has really frosted her cookies, and suddenly, “I’m rich. We should just get married,” sounds a whole lot more swoony.
Especially when the man proposing is this gorgeous. And takes her to parties featuring champagne and petit fours. She’s a sucker for anything with bubbles or icing. And just like that she finds herself married to a near stranger.
Grant Lorre is usually allergic to spontaneity.
So why did he ask the beautiful small-town baker he had a one-night stand with to marry him? Somehow watching her lick batter off a whisk--not a euphemism--made a wedding and a little fraud seem like a sweet idea.
They’ll just play house and make some whoopie--pies, of course--for a few months and then move on with their separate lives. Until then, bring on the cream filling. And that is a euphemism.
But as things heat up even outside of the kitchen, they quickly realize there’s no recipe to follow when it comes to love.

Excerpt
No one fell in love over cheesy potatoes. That was ridiculous. There was nothing sexy about cheesy potatoes. Or potatoes without cheese, for that matter. But lust? Well, that was a possibility. Apparently. Because watching Grant Lorre eat cheesy potatoes across her best friend’s mother’s dining room table was making Jocelyn Asher hot. Of course, Maggie McCaffery’s cheesy potatoes were award-winning. Seriously. She’d taken home the purple ribbon four times from the Dubuque County Fair and twice from the Iowa State Fair. And Grant seemed to agree that they were delicious. He’d made a sexy groaning sound when he’d first taken a bite, and Josie had been mesmerized as his lips closed around the tines of his fork. Never mind how her heart rate had picked up when he’d turned the fork and licked it. She was a mess. Purple ribbon or not, Josie was pretty sure that getting worked up over watching a man eat potatoes meant she was hard up. She took a long drink of iced tea and tried to remember the last time she’d had sex. If she wasn’t forgetting anyone—and how sad would that be—the last time had been with Ben Davis. After Kara Davis’s, now Tibbin’s, wedding. Last week Kara had been into Buttered Up, the bakery where Josie worked with her best friend Zoe, to order a miniature version of her wedding cake to celebrate their first anniversary. Josie sighed. That had to explain the sexy potato thing going on across the table. It had to. But then Grant laughed at something Aiden, his best friend and Zoe’s fiancĂ©—yes, it was one big happy group at this table—said, and Josie felt her neglected lady parts clench. Yeah, it wasn’t the potatoes. Thankfully. Kind of. As weird as getting turned on by potatoes might be, it might have been preferable to being turned on by the man who had been coming into the bakery nearly every morning for the past two weeks, but hadn’t so much as asked her to have a cup of coffee with him. He’d asked her if the blueberries in the muffins were locally sourced. He’d asked her if they had any gluten-free cinnamon scones. He’d asked her for a lemon slice for his cup of hot water. But that was pretty much the extent of the things he’d asked her over the course of the time they’d known each other. Oh, and he’d caught her when she’d fallen off a ladder. Twice. Very gallantly. He’d swept her up before she’d hit the floor. Like a freaking knight in shining armor. But both times he’d simply set her on her feet and gone on with his day. She, on the other hand, was now getting hot and bothered by side dishes.





This is book three in the Hot Cakes Series and it’s just as enjoyable as the first two in this entertaining series. What can I say about Grant Lorre apart from he is hot and I fell really hard for this man in fact I think he is my new book boyfriend, I love a man with a sense of humour and this guy made me laugh and left me smiling like a Cheshire Cat. Jocelyn Asher is doing what she loves, baking but it’s not paying the bills, she is just jogging along but she will never ask for help especially from a man she is sleeping with.....
This book is based around a couple you can’t help loving, the chemistry is sizzling, the romance is adorable and the banter is witty but it’s the friendships and the loyalty from all the characters in this series that takes these books to another level. I was captivated from the first page to the last line and I can’t wait for more baking shenanigans from the residents of Appleby.




The third book in Ms. Nicholas latest series and it was just as entertaining as the previous books. I fell hard and fast for Grant Lorre , he made me smile throughout the story and I couldn't wait to see if he and Jocelyn Asher would get the happily every after that they both deserved. I loved the idea of a marriage of convenience, because we all know that will lead to so much more.

What starts out as a plan for a few months suddenly heats up. As the chemistry between Grant and Jocelyn sizzled and grew, so did their feelings. This book was full of humour,some miss communication, romance and heat. There was also many laugh out loud moments which added to my enjoyment.

Making Whoopie ( what a fabulous title) is a great example of RomCom at it’s best. Erin Nicholas has a way with words that quickly draws you in and keeps you invested from the first to the last chapter.

Release Date: July 7

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Emily
I fell in love with him when I was fourteen. Under the stars, he told me he loved me, and under the stars we promised to love each other always. But under the stars, he broke my heart by walking away.

He left me without a second glance. I was just an afterthought.

Now he's back, but this time, I'm not falling for his Southern charm.

Maybe.

It’s time I get my happily ever after, even if part of me wishes he was still mine.


Ethan
I found out on my twenty-first birthday that everything I thought I knew was a lie, and the man I had grown up thinking was my father wasn't.

The pain I felt blinded me, making it impossible to hear what anyone said.
I left them all behind, including her, my best friend and the woman I was going to marry.

Five years later, I'm back, only to find the woman I still love has another man's ring on her finger.

She’s going to marry my best friend unless I stop her. And this time, I only have until sunrise to change her mind.

Southern Sunrise is a rather emotional gripping story that may cause a myriad of emotions to come to the surface! Ethans story is at times difficult since he left so many years ago! What has he endured to get to the point where he’s ready to face his family and loved ones!

My heart was in my throat throughout the whole book!! I was gutted, I wanted to hug the characters and especially where Emily is concerned, I just wanted her to be happy!

What I read in this book is nothing short of extraordinary! Real life struggles and how Ethan went to find himself.

I love the families so much, they have embedded themselves into my heart and I honestly could read about them forever!

Will Emily and Ethan get their happily ever after or has Ethans return caused friction!? A must read and a wonderful addition to this beautiful heartwarming series!



Southern Sunrise is now my favorite in the Southern Series! It is one of those gut wrenching, tear inducing, second chance romance stories that will pull you in, allow you to fall in love with the characters and will have you wishing so hard for them to finally get over all the heartbreak of their past and find the happiness that a once in a lifetime love deserves.
One bit of information turned Ethan’s life upside down. He needed to figure out who he was so he left his town, his family and the love of his life, Emily for five years. Now he is back, but can all be forgiven and can all hearts be mended?
Read this wonderful story for yourself and find out! You will not be disappointed.




Just when you think it can’t get any better, just when you think you have got over Southern Storm, then you pick up Southern Sunrise which for me is the best in this series. Although this book could be read as a stand-alone I really feel you would get so much more out of this series if you read them in order.
Southern Sunrise is a book that touched me on so many levels, it’s a read I won’t be forgetting and it’s a story I really want to revisit because I’m sure with every reread I will get something extra from this beautifully written love story.
Ethan’s story was alway going to be an emotional read but nothing prepared me for the roller coaster I joined when I started book 4 in the Southern Series. It’s a love story about soul mates who were meant to be together, it’s about the importance of family and it’s about forgiveness, it will make you cry but it will also make you smile when you read lines like
“ I belong to you, my heart belongs to you in this life, in our past life, and in our next life, it will always be you “
This book ticked all my boxes, I loved the characters, the story, the chemistry, the friendships and the family that this love story was connected with. This book is a true testament to life is not always easy but sometimes the pain we suffer in our pasts make our future that much better. Thank you Ms Madison for this amazing read.




Just when I think Natasha Madison cannot shock or surprise me, she pulls another out of her hat. Having recovered from Southern Storm I had no idea where Ms. Madison would lead us in this book. The fourth book in this inter connected series and was just as intriguing and addictive as the first three books. Although, not absolutely necessary I feel it might be beneficial to read them in order.

What an emotional roller coaster of a read Southern Sunrise was; from the first chapter, I was reeled in and fully invested in Ethan and Emily’s story. Reeling from the secrets revealed, Ethan left town 5 years ago leaving everything and everyone behind, including the woman he loved, Emily; my heart broke for the anger, pain and betrayal he felt.

Finally returning home, he knows that forgiveness will not be easily given. He is shocked to learn that Emily the only woman he has loved ,is now engaged to his best friend, however no all is as it appears.

This book will get to you on numerous levels and is well written,full of angst, drama and above all love. The road to happiness will not be easy for Ethan and Emily but if they can get through the pain of the past and come to terms with the present, it will be worth it.

In business circles, I’m known for being cutthroat and demanding. Robert Dumont is a hardass, they say. And it’s true. I thrive on challenges. Taking the family-owned restaurant chain to the next level is my passion. 

When my sister’s marriage implodes, I head back to New York, to be there for her and my niece. These are my only two priorities: growing the business and taking care of my family.

My new neighbor is a temptation I hadn’t counted on. Skye Winchester is bold, sensual and I just can’t keep my distance. I’m determined to make her mine. But once I’ve touched her, I want more. I want to worship her all night long.

As a business owner herself, Skye’s got enough on her plate. I was expecting her to run in the opposite direction when she realizes how complicated my life is. Instead, she does the opposite: making my sister laugh, charming my niece… She completely wins me over.

And neither of us can afford to allow that. But how can we stop now?
