Lovers at Heart

The Bradens Series Book One

By: Melissa Foster

Blurb

Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Hold On Tight by Nicola Haken ~ Release Day Event ~

Hold on tight Release Day Event Banner

Synopsis

A figure from Dexter’s past has uprooted all the memories he has tried so desperately to bury… to forget. The terrible events of his past have been blown wide open once again, immersing him a pool of guilt deeper than he’s even experienced before.

Dexter feels powerless. The future he foolishly allowed himself to conceive is falling apart around him and there’s nothing he can do about it. But there’s one thing he can control – one thing he’s an expert at… blocking everything out. Losing all control, Dexter copes the only way he knows how – he dives so far into the well of addiction, the only thing that matters anymore is where his next fix is coming from.

Mission accomplished – there’s no one left. He’s successfully pushed everyone away. Nobody left to care about means no more guilt, right? You can’t hurt people who aren’t there…

But has he really pushed Emily as far away as he thinks he has? She’s given up everything for him – her home, her friends… her whole life. And she doesn’t regret a single thing. But can she save him from drowning, or has he finally sunk too far?

(Not suitable for under 18’s due to language, sexual content and explicit drug use)

Why hadn’t I resisted him? Because he was too strong, too determined, too beautiful. And because I was hopelessly, helplessly head over heels in love. He had made me fall apart and fall for him.

Back at her Los Angeles headquarters, Gloria faces unexpected deceit, intrigue, and danger and must make a heart-wrenching life-or-death decision that will cost her not only her empire but also the man she loves. Revenge is the only solution. But will she find the strength to confront the demon from her past who harbors the dark secret that can shatter her world?

Ocean’s Collide by M.A. DeOlmos ~Release Day Event~

Oceans collide Release Day Event Banner

Synopsis

My name is Livie Marie Acosta. I am a firm believer that childhood memories are supposed to be happy, joyous, and beautiful. I also believe everyone else in life has just that… except for me, of course.

I came close to having that once with my own family. I had a loving mother that treated me like her little princess. My father was, and still is, the biggest support system in my life, but even his love isn’t enough for me at times. I would have been a proud big sister at the age of seven, but Antonio Jr. was torn away from us before he was even born.

I was destined to be alone and hurt, both emotionally and physically scarred.

The only skeletons that remained of my once happy family was a father I adored, but who lived hundreds of miles away, and a mother whom I had spent most of my own life saving from her demons.

Like many people, they are scarred so deep that when they bleed, it is a reminder that they are still human.

I have a secret. A secret only I know about. I keep my secret well, and keep it hidden from the peeping eyes of the world.

At least I tried… that is until two angels barged into my life, and into my scattered heart. Their presence in my life spun me on my heels, turning my world yet again upside down, and right side up all at the same time.

What I find could either save me, or finally push me over the edge.

Here is my story…

Down To You by Addison Kline ~Review~

18592311

SYNOPSIS

Holly Edgemont used to love celebrating Christmas, that is, until her whole world was turned upside down by an unexpected divorce from her college sweetheart Brant. This year, not only is she divorced, but the kids are going out of state with her ex Brant, leaving her utterly alone. Holly’s party-girl friend Sloane tries to break her out of her frump by dragging her along to holiday parties where Holly meets cute and available Chris. But when Holly realizes that she still has feelings for Brant, she has a decision to make: Learn to trust her long time love who broke her heart, or move on for good.

Brant Edgemont is a divorced father of three, and hopelessly in love with his ex-wife, Holly. He made the biggest mistake of his life walking out two years ago. Despite his pleas to reconnect, Holly still resists him. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Or will Holly move on for good, leaving Brant himself heartbroken and alone?

Down To You is not just a romantic love story. It is a story of familial love, friendship, betrayal, redemption, and the magic that can happen at Christmas time when friends and family join together.

REVIEW BY ERIKA MAHONSKI

r3

Down To You is a cute story based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania about a man and a woman with three young children who recently separated and divorced.  It’s a story about grief and loss, but also forgiveness and unconditional love.  Although I’m not usually a big fan of shorter stories, I felt this book was the perfect length based on the events that took place.  I really enjoyed the storyline behind the writing, an ex husband and wife rekindling their relationship, helplessly in love, unable to move on from each other.

Holly and Brant Edgemont met many years ago while they were in college in a cafe where Brant was employed.  They hit it off immediately later getting married and having 3 beautiful children.  An unexpected work trip comes up while Holly is pregnant with their 4th child and Brant is sent to Hong Kong.  While he’s away, everything changes.  It isn’t until he returns that everything falls into the pits.

Will they ever be able to put the pieces back together and live as a family again?  Will the trust between the two of them remain the same?  Brant’s best friend and best man in their wedding, Chris, takes a turn against him as he chases after Holly.  Chris is well aware Brant still loves Holly but he doesn’t care- he wants her, in the worst way.  Will Holly choose Brant or Chris?  Or will she choose neither of them and stay alone?

I enjoyed reading this story because it’s unique.  Most romances start with a heartbroken woman who finds the perfect battered man and it’s all hotness, sexy, hopeless romance.  Down To You is different, the plot focuses on forgiveness, sadness, devotion, and yearning.  I was rooting for Brant the whole time!  I wanted to walk into the story and tell Holly all of the things that Brant couldn’t bring himself to say to her.

As I stated enjoying this read, I awarded it 3 stars for these reasons: it needs some more editting, for starters.  I am in no way a grammar nazi but there were misspellings and words that weren’t meant to be the word displayed.  Also, the storyline was unique but I thought it lacked spark.  I wanted something more to come in the way between them.  Maybe infidelity, a previous boyfriend/girlfriend, some sort of substantial issue.  I was looking for more drama, more grief, something to keep me sucked into the book.  Two thumbs up to the author for writing an adorable love story with a HEA- we all love happy endings. 🙂

A Home for Christmas

Ann Vaughn

Publication: November 28, 2013

Synopsis

Single mom, Jenna Blackwell wasn’t having a very good start to the Christmas season; her purse got stolen on Black Friday. She’s cursing her luck and herself for even being out in the Black Friday madness when the store manager brings in Riley Stanton, a former Navy SEAL who chased down the thieves and recovered her purse. Jenna is blown away by Riley: his looks, his smile, the fact that he ran down the purse snatchers, everything.

Riley Stanton had no idea when he chased down the kids who stole a few purses that he would walk into a room and have his life changed forever. He looked into the eyes of Jenna and saw a strength in her that he found intriguing.

Riley soon learns that Jenna is everything he ever wanted in a woman. He falls for her and for her son harder than he expected to. Jenna is cautious but welcoming and hopes that she and her son can give Riley the one thing he hasn’t had in years, A Home for Christmas.

Excerpt #1:

Riley came over every evening after work. He helped Cam with his homework. he got there before she did on Wednesday and he and Cam had dinner ready by the time she got home. Jenna had to fight tears as she sat at the table. It had been so long since someone had cooked for her. To be honest, other than her mother, she didn’t think anyone ever had. Wade, her ex, certainly never did. Watching Cam work so closely with Riley, having Riley there filling the role that Wade had abandoned, even sitting at a table with candlelight and roses and food she hadn’t had to prepare…it was a lot for her to handle. She was barely hanging on by a thread and when Riley had initiated the blessing, she lost it. “Mom?” Cam asked, uncertain of what was happening. Jenna covered her face with her hands, silently crying. She heard the scrape of a chair and then suddenly Riley was there, his arms around her, lifting her from the chair. She heard him say something to Cam and then he carried her from the room.

He sat on the sofa and cradled her in his lap and just held her while she cried. After several minutes, when her tears had subsided somewhat, Riley reached down to cup her chin in his hand and lift her head so he could look into her eyes. “I’m sorry,” she whispered. “Nothing to be sorry about,” he said, smoothing his hands over her cheeks to wipe her tears away.

“Mom?” Cam asked again, drawing her attention. “You OK?” “I’m good, bud, I’m sorry.” Riley looked up at Cam and made eye contact with him. Jenna wasn’t sure what passed between them, but Cam got up and left, leaving her there with Riley. “Look at me,” he said, softly. When she raised her eyes to meet his gaze, he lifted her hand and kissed her knuckles. “What’s going on?” She took a deep breath. “It’s just…no one’s ever done something like this for me before.” “Like what? Take care of you?” She nodded. “Better get used to it, babe. I’m not going anywhere.” She squeezed his hand, tears falling down her cheeks again. This time, Riley leaned forward and kissed them away before touching his lips to hers. For the first time, Jenna didn’t hold herself back.

Maybe it was because Cam was just down the hall and she knew it couldn’t get out-of-control. Whatever the case, she turned in his arms and wrapped her arms around his neck, deepening the kiss. “Thank you, Riley,” she whispered when they pulled apart, pressing her forehead to his, and placing her fingertips against his lower lip. He nipped her fingertip lightly, then ran his tongue around her finger. “Anytime,” he replied, “and I mean that. You don’t have to do it all alone any more.” “Riley,” she whispered, kissing him, “please don’t make promises you can’t keep. My heart is fragile enough, but Cam…” He kissed her back. “Quit while you’re ahead. Don’t piss me off.” She smiled and combed her fingers through the hair at his nape. “I’ll try.” “Good. Let me take care of you, Jenna.

You and Cam.” She took a deep breath. “Tell you what. You’re still here by Christmas? We’ll talk,” she said, giving him a final kiss then sliding off his lap. He watched her walk down the hall to Cam’s room. Closing his eyes and letting his head fall back on the couch, he reached down to adjust himself in his jeans. For the first time since leaving the Navy, Riley felt like he wasn’t just spinning his wheels.

It wasn’t until a conversation with her husband about the rise of eBooks that she decided to try her hand at self-publishing. It was scary and exciting and ever since the release of her first book, Long Way Home on August 7, 2013 she has been on a wild roller coaster ride that she wouldn’t trade for the world.

difficult holiday memories—for sunny San Diego. But a freak ice storm and a
grounded plane have forced him back to his already-occupied flat. To make up for
the mix-up, the least he can do is show his pretty houseguest where to get the
perfect Christmas tree before he leaves.
The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, and soon
Ashley is tempting Oliver to give in to the spirit of the season and snuggle up for the
rest of the winter. As the ice melts and flights start taking off again, he must choose
between giving in to the past or risking his heart on a chance at love.

The past holds the key…

Clouded memories and forgotten truths hold the answer to saving the team. Can Derac face the gruesome nightmare in time?

A grudge can only wait for so long…

 

Excerpt:

The blonde in blue floated her way to Rakan and sat down in his lap with a giggle. Jardel got a bouncy brunette to land in his lap. Derac was not paying attention and the other blonde in red planted herself on his knees. His head snapped up to look at her.

“Long journey, Warrior?” she purred.

Derac set his face in a grim line. He put his hands on her waist, picked her up and put her on her feet. “I’m not interested, but thank you for the offer.”

She pouted and slowly walked away, swinging her hips. Derac sighed and returned to looking at the ceiling.

“That was not very nice,” Vivian pouted from Tyn’s lap. “You could have at least talked to her.”

Derac growled. “Look, while I’m flattered that she would choose me, I am not in the mood, all right?”

“How can you not be in the mood?” Vivian said. She didn’t hide her offense at his words. “Making love is the best thing in the world.” She leaned her head back and laughed. Tyn planted a kiss on her collar bone. She giggled and looked at Derac daring him to prove her wrong.

Derac leaned his elbows on his knees and put on his best charming smile. “Why would I pay a woman to be with me when I could have a warrior elf with the perfect body?” He turned his head and winked at Kie. She played along and winked back at him.

“Oh! How sinfully nice!” Vivian laughed.

Aeli looked at Kie in shock. Derac put his hands behind his head and reclined in the chair again, a smug look on his face. Tyn laughed with Vivian but Jardel and Rakan were too distracted by the girls in their laps to pay attention.

“Well, let me show you to your rooms then,” Vivian said with a giggle.

She stood and took Tyn’s hand and led him through the silk curtains hanging across the doorway. The group picked up their packs and followed them down the hall lined with doors covered in silk to give the appearance of having no doors at all.

Vivian opened the door to one room and Jardel and his girl fell into it with a laugh. Derac growled under his breath. The room across the hall became occupied by Rakan and his blonde.

At the next door, Vivian turned to Aeli. “I can get a man for you if you like,” she smiled.

Aeli smiled. “No thanks. I’m much too tired, and I fear he would be disappointed.”

As she closed the door to her room, Derac caught her rolling her eyes. He held back a smirk as they continued down the hall. She opened another door and waved her hand dramatically to both Kie and Derac.

Kie opened her mouth to protest but Derac shoved her into the room. He flashed a grin to Vivian and Tyn and kicked the door shut.

“What are you doing?” Kie whispered in a harsh tone.

He held up his hands to stop her. “I just wanted to get away from that Vivian woman. If you had protested, it would have taken longer that I would have had to deal with her.”

Kie crossed her arms over her chest. “That’s not the point! The whole team will know we are in the same room – in a brothel!”

“What is the problem with that? We’ve shared rooms before.” He grinned wickedly. “We’ve even snuggled on the floor of a cave remember?”

Kie huffed and flopped down in the velvet covered chair in the corner. Derac cast his gaze around the room and curled his nose. Silk sheets on the four post bed. Silk on the wall. Shag red carpet and velvet seat cushions.

A knock sounded and Derac swung the door open in a wild fashion.

Tyn’s eyes winkled at the corners with his large grin. “I told Vivian you two would need extra blankets. So you can make an extra bed. There are gowns in the wardrobe if you want.”

“Thank you,” Derac took them and shut the door again.

“At least Tyn is thinking rationally,” Kie muttered. She went over to the wardrobe and swung open the doors. “Gowns? Is he serious?” She pulled out a paper thin cotton shift with no sleeves. The low cut collar and see through material made Kie gasp in shock.

Derac smirked. “I bet it’s comfortable.”

Kie rolled her eyes and put it back into the wardrobe. She dug around and found a cotton gown not quite so transparent.

“I guess this will have to do. I am sick of sleeping in my uniform.”

“Me too but I doubt there are sleeping clothes in there for me.”

“Then wear nothing. Maybe then that blonde could have an easier time of getting you in the mood.” She titled her head back, the maniacal laugh bubbling from her throat.

“I told you, why pay a woman to be with me when I can have an elf with the perfect body?”

“Oh? You think I’d just bend to your advances, hmm?”

He smirked. “I know you would.”

Three long strides carried him across the room. He wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her against him.

“Centurio…”

“I’ve proved my point. Look at how your breath hitches and your heart beats faster.”

“Th…that’s because you startled me.”

He chuckled deep in his chest.

“Let’s talk about you then,” she said. “How your grip tightens on my waist when I try to pull away and your own heart is thundering in your chest. Or how you can’t stop looking into my eyes whenever we gaze at each other. Or how badly you want to kiss me right now.”

“Do you want me to kiss you?” he said, his voice husky and deep.

She swallowed hard. “Yes,” she whispered.

Derac didn’t hesitate and captured her lips with his. The voice in his head telling him he shouldn’t kiss her was silent. The softness of her mouth drowned out all other thoughts in his head.

Her lips parted in invitation. His tongue traced the lines of her lips before plunging into her mouth. Her vanilla scent filled his nose, and he inhaled it deeply. She rose up on her toes, her body pressing closer to his. His arms tightened around her. Derac’s hand roamed up her back and then gripped the back of her neck.

His mind cleared, the only thoughts were how she molded perfectly to him and the feel of her soft mouth.

Derac nipped at her bottom lip. “See? You can’t resist me,” he murmured.

“Hmm, more like you can’t resist me. I’m the elf with the perfect body, remember?”

“Honestly, I really can’t tell with your uniform on.”

“Is that an order to remove my clothes, Centurio?” she whispered.

A growl rumbled deep in his throat. “Would you defy the order?”

She smiled. “I might.”
