Today’s Snippet

Connor Walsh leaned against the window frame with his arms crossed over his chest as he watched the waves crashing against the rocks. In front of him, as wide as the horizon, was the ocean. With the clouds drifting in from the sea, the sky had turned grey and dark, and he knew there’d be even more rain coming later in the day.

He would’ve enjoyed the scene if it hadn’t reminded him of the changes in his life. He’d been back in Fermosa Bay for two days already, but the memories of the first seven years of his life which he’d spent in this small Australian coastal town were tucked away in the back of his mind. Inaccessible as it seemed. Nowadays, his life was in London and had been for the last twenty-three years. Taking a couple of deep breaths, he looked towards the harbour in the distance, and the small town in the alcove with the hilly forest in the background, where he’d spent some of his childhood years. It was truly one picturesque little place.

A noise from the other end of the house hauled him back from his thoughts, and he stepped away from the window. Since he’d decided to accept Jack’s invitation to come to Australia a few weeks earlier, he’d had visions of what he’d find here. His mother hadn’t told him much about the time she’d lived here, except about Jack owning a pub. Connor had been furious for her lack of memory, but in the end, he’d admitted to himself that it had possibly not been a time she’d like to remember.

I Love You Today
The Trading Heartbeats Trilogy Book 2
by Julie Navickas
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense

Because when you least expect it… and when you’re least ready for it… love happens.

Casey McDaniels lacked direction, spending the better part of her youth boyfriend hopping, partying, and bartending – her dreams, career ambitions, and education put on the backburner in favor of a social life and steady paycheck… that is, until a new lawyer moves into town.

When sexy, smart, and brokenhearted Austin Templeton relocates from Los Angeles to Chicago, Casey can’t help but put her former lifestyle aside in favor of the sweet romance that erupts between them. Finding more than just her heart set ablaze, Austin’s own professional ambition ignites a fire beneath her – pushing her forward into uncharted territory.

But one thing’s for sure… his career will always come first. When an unexpected promotion threatens to take him back to California, Casey reels, forced to choose between the man who captured her heart and the newfound path to success he led her down.

With her heart torn down the middle, Casey leaves the choice in Austin’s hands. After all, what’s more important? A job… or love?

I Loved You Yesterday
The Trading Heartbeats Trilogy Book 1

Secrets always have a way of coming out.

Mavis Benson made a huge mistake. Scratch that—colossal mistake. Twice. Sleeping with her high school sweetheart’s twin brother definitely wasn’t part of the plan… nor was falling in love with him.

But that wasn’t the only complication Mavis faced. When an unplanned pregnancy upends her life at seventeen, Mavis skips town to spare her boyfriend, Josh Templeton, from the fallout. With only a letter of apology, she disappears, but not before confiding her secret to Josh’s brother, Austin.

When Austin resurfaces in her life years later, he brings the past to Mavis’s doorstep. Josh wants her back, Austin isn’t willing to surrender, and the path to happiness isn’t clear. Caught between both men, Mavis must choose between the brother for whom she broke her own heart, and the brother who picked up the pieces.

I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY is a heart-pounding reveal of best kept secrets. The truth is never easy, and neither is putting down this page turner. Fans of Nora Roberts and K.G. Fletcher will want to get a copy of I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY.

Today’s Snippet

She gasped. “You… you’re—”

“I am indeed.”

Molly studied him. He didn’t look anything like the boy in the photos Mrs. Fielding had shown her. The stranger in her bathroom — in Mrs. Fielding’s bathroom — looked … she huffed a sigh and admitted, he looked sexy in his faded jeans, the dark blue T-shirt with Alaska written on the front in some corny font, his brown hair tousled, his skin unusually pale for someone who apparently lives in California, and his eyes … she met his eyes again and her heart skipped a beat. She blinked, dazed by the endless depth of his eyes, a rich, dark emerald that held her captive and her breath was trapped in her throat. Even with the thick glasses that the grandson sported in the photos, the green was the same amazing colour.

THE ENDGAME is a gorgeous new contemporary sports romance, coming in 6 days! Check out the gorgeous romance and be sure to pre-order your copy today!

Title: The Endgame
Author: Bianca Borell
Genre: Sports Romance

About The Endgame:

Every girl with a brother grows up with one fundamental rule: his best friend is off limits. That’s one rule she longs to break when he crashes into her life.

Amelie Weston has been taking the safe path for as long as she can remember. Not disappointing her parents by pursuing the career she wants. And not pursuing the guy she’s been crushing on.

But she’s tired of being the good girl.

Her brother’s best friend is pushing her to stop being a people pleaser and open the bakery of her dreams. Little does he know he’s also at the top of the list of her heart’s greatest desires… and he’s making himself impossible to resist.

Levi Kingston fully intends to become a legend on the field as one of the best players ever. He must stay focused and work relentlessly toward his goal. He doesn’t have time for distractions… until he meets his best friend’s sister, and his well-laid plan is challenged.

Bad timing, responsibilities, and loyalty to her brother keep them apart. But the connection between them only grows stronger. Their feelings become impossible to ignore, and the fight against them is pointless.

Will they take a chance on love? Or waste an opportunity for long-awaited happiness?

This week’s Hook …

IN THE SHADOWS OF A LIE
by Iris Blobel

He reached for his phone and saw he’d missed two calls from Teddy. Ignoring them for the moment, he scratched the back of his neck. He’d failed as a bed and breakfast host. In fact, he hadn’t been good at all. His simple task had been to ask Lani to fill in the guest book and grab a copy of her driver’s licence. He’d been in such a rush after struggling with the flat tyre and so taken aback by his body’s reaction to her. Reaction? It hadn’t been a reaction but surprise. In all honesty, he’d expected a middle-aged woman, although he had no idea why. Seeing Lani, who was probably in her early twenties, with some out-of-control red hair, and green eyes, had thrown him. Those emerald eyes that had followed his every move as he showed her around.

Goddamn it. He didn’t want to think of Teddy’s guest as attractive. Not to mention, one who was here to see his friend Toby.

Blurb:

The discovery of her mother’s diaries unravels a secret which sends Lani on a journey to New Zealand …

She lost her mother in an accident. Now, Lani Dekker is determined to meet the man who, according to her mother’s diaries, is her father. He’s not what she expected, a bit on the extravagant side, but she soon warms up to him, thanks no less to Dylan, her father’s neighbour. Despite her attraction to Dylan, she can’t figure out whether he’s a friend or foe.

Dylan Harper is merely going through the daily motions after his wife died in a ski crash. That is, until his life is turned upside down by the arrival of his neighbour’s daughter. Their attraction is instant, even more so when they wake up in the same bed after an earthquake. However, it’s her accusation that his interest in her involves her father’s money rather than their mutual magnetism that derails their newfound bond.

Will finding the truth about her parents be a chance for Lani and Dylan to overcome their differences?

#CoverReveal ECHOES OF THE PAST has a new Cover 👀 #99c #bookrecommendation #Love #noregrets

 

I can finally reveal the new cover for ECHOES OF THE PAST (a Fermosa Bay Novel), which was created by the very talented Diane at dk-coverdesign I am really happy how it turned out and I hope you’ll like it, too.

When Connor Walsh, a business lawyer in London, receives news that his estranged father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, a little coastal town in Australia. With the memories of his childhood years tucked away in the back of his mind, he finds his father and kindergarten friends rallying around to remind him of the past. But he’s unprepared for the growing attraction he feels for Emily, and it doesn’t take long for Connor to feel regret that his life could have been so much different.

Emily Bradshaw has waited for over twenty years to see Connor again. And although he can’t remember her, let alone their first kiss, her childhood crush is still in full swing. Eager to pick up where they left off as children, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he is in Fermosa Bay, accepting her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.

Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying in Fermosa Bay?

To have a little bit of a celebration, the story is currently only 99c at Amazon. I will share details of the short story attached to the Fermosa Bay Series, BIGALOW hopefully soon, but you can already read the blurb here … or even pre-order your copy while it’s still only  99c 😉

Today’s Snippet

And finally, he told her the reason of his intrusion. “I own the house.”

It took her a beat to relay the information to her brain. “Excuse me?”

“I own the house,” he repeated.

Finding her moisturiser bottle, she held on to it as tightly as possible for the sake of holding onto something. She hoped there was going to be an end to this soon. She squared her shoulders and narrowed her eyes. “Not sure what you’re on about, but this house belongs to the late Mrs. Fielding.”

His lips quirked on one side. “I know. She was my grandmother.”

She gasped. “You… you’re—”

“I am indeed.”
