#MFRWHooks “He looks gorgeous.” #books #Wednesdayblog #blogger


Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “. I’ve moved forward a little but it should be easy to follow.

Today’s Hook:

She gave a slow nod. “Okay. I’ll be right back.”
Hollie took the glass of water and made her way through the crowd to Alex, trying not to spill anything.
Placing the drink on the table, she leaned a bit closer to be heard over the noise. “Jeremy just invited me for a drink.”
Alex’s eyes grew wide. “Oh, nice.” A grin spread across her face. “So, what are you doing here, then? Off you go, this is your chance. He looks gorgeous.”
“I don’t know, Alex. What am I supposed to talk to him about?”
Alex stared at her in blank incomprehension. “The weather. Everyone always talks about the weather.” She gave Hollie a not so gentle push. “Look, if all fails, at least you saved some money on a lemon vodka.”
Hollie was still hesitant. Looking from her friend to Jeremy and back, she took a deep breath to calm herself.
“Go, for heaven’s sake. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and so many other things. Just go.”
Hollie slowly turned and again struggled through the crowd as she made her way to Jeremy. When he saw her coming, he rewarded her with a smile that simply took her breath away.

BLURB:

There must be a reason for her dreams…

Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.

Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.

When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love? 

 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

 

#ReleaseBlitz “IT’S IN HIS CHRISTMAS WISH” by @ShellyCAlexande ~ @InkSlingerPR

Today we have the release day blitz for Shelly Alexander
It’s In His Christmas Wish!
Check out the release day festivities and grab your copy today!

Title: It’s In His Christmas Wish
Author: Shelly Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About It’s In His Christmas Wish:

Return to Red River–a beautiful mountain town in the southern Rockies, where the nights are cool and the romance is hot–one last time in this wonderful holiday romance that has as much heart as it does heat.

Maybe some wishes aren’t meant to come true.

Christmas is a hot button for Kimberly Perez, and not in a good way. Having grown up in the foster system, she’s as frugal as she is smart and can’t abide the materialism of the holidays. In an effort to use precious funds to help children in need instead of wasting money on meaningless commercialism, she pitches a new city ordinance to Red River’s town council that would cut all holiday decorations and festivities from the budget.

Ross Armstrong is determined to honor his late sister’s memory by continuing her love of all things Christmas in Red River. But to do so, he’s got to block the passing of a silly new law—and the person behind it—which would essentially ban Christmas altogether.

When their disagreement pits them against each other at a public town council meeting and splits Red River in half, the council chairperson forces them to work together on a new Red River holiday tradition—the Wishing Tree. Can they work together in the true spirit of the holidays, not only to reunite the town they love but to also cultivate the burgeoning feelings they have for each other. Or will their differences turn them into enemies and divide Red River forever?

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SHELLY’S READERS

Hello, my lovelies. As this–my first published series–comes to a close, I’m both excited to start new books set in a different location and sad that the wonderfully quirky characters who make up the heart of Red River will no longer be my focus when I sit down to write every day. Thank you for following this series from start to finish. It’s been a fantastic journey, and just like the characters in the books, there has been ups and there has been downs. But you all have stayed with me every step of the way, and for that I am eternally grateful. So, enjoy Ross and Kimberly’s heartwarming holiday story.

♥ Happy Sunday ♥
Time for something new. I spent a few weeks in Tasmania and thought the place deserves a story.
Enjoy ♥

Leonie Dupont absentmindedly gazed at the guy’s backside which was nicely tucked into blue jeans as he leaned under the hood of her rental car. Blowing out a long breath, she said, “Thanks again for helping.”
He stood straight, avoiding banging his head against the hood, and nodded towards the front of the car. “Try again.”
She sat on the driver’s seat and cranked the engine, relief flooding through her as the motor sprang to life. Not turning off the car, she stood and stepped towards him. “I don’t know how to thank you. What was wrong?”
His mouth curved into a smile. A very sexy smile indeed. “Nothing much. You should be okay for the rest of your travels. Unless you’re on your way to Darwin.”
She shook her head and held her hand out. “I owe you…”
He ignored her hand and replied, “Alex. And no you don’t. Happy to help.” He wiped his hand on his jeans and guilt trickled through her seeing the dirty marks his action left.
Closing the hood of the car, he asked, “Where are you heading…”
“Leonie.” She lifted her shoulder in a slight shrug. “No real plans. Just living each day.”
He cocked a brow. “That sounds mysterious.”
“Long story.”

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

#MFRWHooks “…something about him was irresistible.” #books #RomanceReadClub #blogger


Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “.

Today’s Hook:

When she finally reached the bar, she ordered a lemon vodka as well as some water and as she searched for some change in her tight pockets, someone spoke to her.
“May I buy you this drink?”
Hollie looked up straight into Jeremy’s eyes.
“H-hi,” she stuttered. “So now you’d like to talk to me?”
He choked back a chuckle. “I had to take a phone call. My apologies. That’s why I’d like to shout you a drink.”
It did make sense. She vaguely remembered seeing him leave the club. Biting her lip, she moved her head to find Alex in the crowd, suddenly uncomfortable without her friend. Unaware, however, of Hollie’s situation, Alex was happily chatting with Ben.
Turning back to Jeremy, Hollie answered above the background noise, “Thank you. That’s very kind of you, but no thanks.”
“Just this one,” he persisted.
“I’m sorry, but my friend is waiting for me to bring her a glass of water. Maybe next time.”
Although tempted, something inside told her she wasn’t ready, yet, for the flirting and dating business. And like so often, she cursed her dreams for her hesitation. What did they mean? Why was she having them? And who was the woman?
Thanks to those dreams, she’d been second-guessing herself more and more often when it came to men, too worried the dreams had a meaning which she still had to figure out.
“How about you take the water to your friend and then return for a drink with me?”
Hollie exhaled a long breath. He didn’t give up easily, and as much as she was uncomfortable in the situation, something about him was irresistible.

BLURB:

There must be a reason for her dreams…

Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.

#BlogTour CHRISTMAS INN LOVE by @SamanthaChase3 ~ #InkSlingerPR

We are so excited to be sharing the release of
CHRISTMAS INN LOVE by Samantha Chase
with you today.
CHRISTMAS INN LOVE
is the latest holiday romance in the Silver Bell Falls series – be sure to grab your copy today!

About CHRISTMAS INN LOVE

Running the family B&B has always been Cassidy Ryan’s dream. But first, she has to save it from neglect.

Closing the doors to the Silver Bell Inn for the holiday seasons seems like the perfect plan to give the B&B some much needed love and care. Or at least it would be if the inn didn’t need a lot more work than Cassidy can handle on her own. She needs help. But asking it is the last thing she wants to do.

Getting stuck in Silver Bell Falls was not part of Beckham Allen’s plans. Neither was this cross-country road trip, for that matter. He was supposed to be focusing on himself and on healing after the loss of his father. But nothing, not even his rescue dog Mazie, seems to be able to break him out of his funk.

Or so he thought until he met the sweet innkeeper who takes him in.

After an awkward start, Cassidy and Beckham discover the perks of being snowed in together. And with Christmas drawing closer, they find they may have just been given the greatest gift of all.

#SnippetSunday “He rolled his eyes at himself.” #romancebooks #amreading #amwriting

♥ Happy Sunday ♥
I’m continuing with my latest WIP which is set near
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. I’ve moved into Dylan’s POV this Sunday.
Enjoy ♥

Dylan pinched the bridge of his nose when he slid behind the wheel of his car. Still confused what had happened the previous twenty minutes. There was no doubt Lani Thompson was an interesting person. He rolled his eyes at himself. Interesting? How on earth was he able to make this judgement after only a few minutes of chaotic conversation where lots had been implied and little had been said? She was here to see Toby and that made her an interesting person. It was as simple as that.
He reached for his phone and saw he’d missed two calls from Teddy. Ignoring them for the moment, he blew out a breath. He’d failed as a bed and breakfast host. He wasn’t good at all this. He was supposed to have asked Lani to fill in the guest book and grab a copy of her driver’s licence. He’d been in a rush after struggling with the flat tyre and, yes, taken aback by his body’s reaction to her. He shook the thought out of his head. There was no reaction, but surprise. He’d been expecting a middle aged woman, although he had no idea why. Seeing Lani in front of him, probably early twenties, out of control red hair, and green eyes like he’d never seen before had completely thrown him.

Becoming a parent can be daunting at the best of times, but for Flynn McCormack, a business lawyer in Melbourne, it pulls the feet right out from underneath him. He’s become a father to six-year-old Nadine literally overnight. He didn’t know about her existence, and the news throws him into chaos, even more so when he is asked to take over custody.
With the help of Emma, an employee at the hotel where Nadine and her grandparents are staying, Flynn tries to do the right thing. Yet, the right thing in his eyes differs from his parents’ ideas, and Emma is voicing her opinion, too, leaving Nadine right in the middle of it all, still grieving the loss of her mother. There’s no doubt she’s afraid about where and with whom she will settle.

Will a letter Flynn receives help him decide what to do?

Brenda Jackson’s Finding Home Again!

Title: Finding Home Again
Author: Brenda Jackson
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Finding Home Again:

Ten years ago, Kaegan Chambray went to his sweetheart Bryce Witherspoon’s with an engagement ring in his pocket…and had his dreams shattered. Now he’s returned to Catalina Cove to run the family seafood shipping business and make his home. But no place has ever felt like home since losing Bryce.

Bryce Witherspoon’s heart still races every time she sees Kaegan, no matter how much she tells it not to. He broke her heart when he walked away all those years ago. But when the lie that tore them apart is revealed, Kaegan is determined to make up for lost time.

Soon Kaegan is surprising her with a sweet and sexy courtship, and she’s reminded of the man she once knew and is getting a glimpse of the man he’s become. Bryce swore never to forgive him, but beneath the hurt runs the one thing Bryce fears the most: that irresistible, oh-so-familiar jolt of attraction. She thought she’d buried that part of herself, but maybe, just maybe, it’s possible to have the future they once imagined—if only they give love a second chance.
