About The Layover (Love Is Book 5)

Macy Monroe has spent two years living and working in Rome, dreaming about moving back home to Port City. That dream finally comes true when her assignment ends and she finds a new job and new apartment back in the States. As a last hurrah in Europe, she books a layover in Paris for a long weekend full of sightseeing and all the baguettes and cheese she can eat. But her plan hits a snag when a hotel snafu leaves her stranded by the Seine with nowhere to stay.

Fate steps in when she runs into Beckett McLane, her ex-boyfriend from college. He’s in town working on his next novel and offers her a place to stay. Beckett’s the kind of handsome that you never really forget, and Macy’s heart is still a little broken from the breakup. Without any other options, she reluctantly takes him up on the offer.

Macy encourages work-obsessed Beckett to take a much-needed break from his laptop, and as he shows her around town, they get caught up in the romantic City of Light. When they’re together, it’s easy to forget that Macy’s only on a layover and their time together is running out…

Corinna McKnight is a chronically single girl in need of toned abs and a hot date for a wedding that her highly successful, deliriously happy lifelong frenemy will be attending. The wedding is only six weeks away and she doesn’t have much time to make it look like she has her life together. Luckily, her best friend’s boyfriend owns the hottest gym in town and sets her up with Noah, the best personal trainer he has on staff.

Noah Cutter is at a pretty good place in his life. He has a job and he loves working for his best friend, Hunter. Noah is in high demand, mostly for his talent, but sometimes for his body and Hunter has one very firm rule: no fooling around with the clients.

It’s an easy rule to follow until he meets Corinna, who makes him want more out of life and leaves him straddling the line between breaking a promise and betraying his heart.

Let’s Get Physical is the standalone second book in the Love Is…series!

About THE PLUS-ONE PROPOSAL (Love Is Book 3)

Peyton Castillo’s life is nearly perfect. She has a job that makes her happy, the perfect apartment, friends who love her, and all the time in the world to do whatever she wants, whenever she wants. She’s single and loving it, but she has a handful of weddings she’s RSVPed to and no plus-one to go with. That’s where Adam Portman, her gorgeous-and-knows-it coworker comes in.

Peyton’s proposal is simple: she’ll complete a work assignment Adam’s been dreading if he agrees to be her date to one of the weddings.

The offer is tempting, but sparks fly when Adam counters with a proposal of his own. That work assignment isn’t the only thing he’s been dreading. His parents’ 30th anniversary celebration is coming up soon and his mother is determined to set him up with her best friend’s daughter, who will be at the party. Adam needs a date to play along and convince his mom he’s off the market, and Peyton is the perfect choice…

About THE BREAKUP BUCKET LIST (Love Is Book 4)

Ever since Lindsay Castillo was a little girl, she dreamed about living in Port City. As an adult, she learns the difficult lesson that dreams aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be. With a broken heart, an apartment full of boxes and a moving company booked, Lindsay jots down everything she wants to do before she leaves Port City and heads back home to start over.

She has a month to mark off everything on The Breakup Bucket List.

Evan Roberts is doing his best to live up to the high expectations that come along with having his last name. As Port City royalty, he’s been following a strict path to success since the day he was born. He’s looking for a little fun—something to shake up the monotony of his life—when he runs into Lindsay. He’s captivated by her and welcomes the challenge of helping her complete her bucket list.

It doesn’t take much convincing for Lindsay to agree; there are some things she wants to do before she moves that only someone with Evan’s access can help her with. What starts off as a simple partnership grows into more as Lindsay and Evan race against the clock and Lindsay’s moving day draws closer…

#SnippetSunday “You call this an adventure?” #Aussieauthor #Sundayblog #mustread


Happy Sunday. I’m continuing with my WIP, another Alinta Bay story.
Jonah and Maddie are still stuck in the lift.
Enjoy ♥

She gave him a gentle slap on his chest, his company not only giving her some comfort in this awkward, and somewhat scary situation, but she was enjoying it as well. “I’m helping Dad’s friend. She’s overseeing all the arrangements.”
“So we’re in good hands,” he said with some mirth.
“You most certainly are,” she assured him. “Taupo? So, what is this fine specimen of a man doing in … wait, north or south island?”
“North.”
The static voice from the panel startled them both, and Jonah stood instantly to reply. “We’re still coping. Some better than others.”
Maddie pulled in her lips as she looked up at him, glad to hear from the outside help, but at the same time she was a bit disappointed their conversation was distracted. Of course he was referring to her. And, yes, he was right. Even more so that he was not holding her hand anymore. She missed his body next to hers, the assurance he had radiated.
“Technicians have arrived and promised me to have you moving soon again.”
Jonah nodded towards the silver panel. “Appreciate the update. Oh, mate, could you give an update to…” He turned to her. “Anybody you need to know about current adventure?”
Eyes wide, she countered, “You call this an adventure?”
He blew out a breath. “Another ism I’ve stepped in?”
Placing her hand on the ground, she pushed herself up and stood next to him. “Not the kind of adventure I was seeking.”
His laugh was warm and intimate. “You have to come to NZ for a visit one day. Lots of adventures to have over there.”
“Excuse me,” the static voice interrupted. “Could I have your attention for just a moment?”
“Sorry,” Maddie and Jonah replied in unison.
“Who would you like me to contact?”


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

#MFRWHooks “She’s back in town.” #MFRWOrg #OneClick #mustread #Ilovebooks

Happy Wednesday everyone.
BETWEEN GOODBYE AND HELLO is the 3rd and last book in
the Alinta Bay series
The ebook available on AMAZON for 99c .
If you’re a KU subscriber, please take a moment to check out the first two books in the series: “DEFYING RULES” and “TELL IT TO MY HEART”

Today’s Hook:

“Dad said something along those lines as well.”
A grin spread across Noah’s face. “Must be true then. If you didn’t, you’d move hell on earth to get rid of her, instead you’re about to run after her.”
Harrison flipped them the finger and crossed the road without another word, walking towards his mother’s bakery. The streets weren’t busy, which wasn’t uncommon during winter in Alinta Bay with only the occasional tourist driving through.
Harrison had lived in the small coastal town in Australia all his life and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. He would often listen to Noah’s stories about living in California and Alaska, and an interest to travel stirred in him, but bottom line was, he was a small-town boy through and through, loving the local community with its advantages as well as its flaws.
With more force than intended, he pushed the door open to the bakery where John, one of his mother’s staff, greeted him from behind the counter. “How are you, Harrison?”
“All good. How are you? Is Mum around?”
“Lisa left less than five minutes ago. With Melody. She’s back in town.”
He clenched his jaw tight, John’s words sinking in like a knife. “I know.”

BLURB:

Can two seemingly incompatible people who judge each other on past events be able to find some common ground?

Harrison Hendrix believes in second chances, but when it comes to Melody, he has every reason to doubt it’s possible. He’s conflicted when he sees her back in town and tries his best to see the change in her that other friends mention. Even more so when spending a night with her after being set up for a dinner date.

Life hasn’t been kind to Melody Foster, and she returns to Alinta Bay for a new beginning. Hit by tragedy again, she’s determined to live life to the fullest and with no regrets. She creates a bucket list … on which #8 the very difficult, yet extremely sexy Harrison has been included. Why does it seem he’s always around when she’s in trouble?

Maybe it’s time to take a risk and leave the past where it belongs, but will trusting their instinct be the right choice for them?

 “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.

#SnippetSunday “I stepped right into the ageism trap, didn’t I?” #freeread #Sundayblog #mustread


Happy Sunday. I’m continuing with my WIP, another Alinta Bay story.
Jonah and Maddie are still stuck in the lift.
Enjoy ♥

“Are you here for the reunion?”
She nodded.
“Attending as well?”
She shot him a humorous glare. “Do I look like I’m thirty years old?”
Jonah let out a bark of laughter. “I stepped right into the ageism trap, didn’t I?” And on another chuckle he added, “I honestly have no idea how a beautiful thirty year old woman looks like, but in all fairness I did want to add, you looked too young to be part of the reunion.”
With a giggle she responded instantly. “Liar.”
“A fine specimen of a liar, though, right?”
Blush crept up her cheeks and amusement tugged at his lips. He studied her face, studied her beautiful green eyes looking at him, the few freckles on her nose telling him he didn’t wear any or very little make up, and her light pink lips which still held a smile.
“Okay, we’ve established you’re too young to attend the reunion. Honestly I’m too scared to ask in case I overstep another –ism along the way.”
She gave him a gentle slap on his chest. “I’m helping Dad’s friend. She’s overseeing all the arrangements.”

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Autistic, asexual, and almost forty, Pineapple “Motts” Mottley flees London with her cat and turtle to a quaint cottage in Cornwall. She craves the peace of life in a small village. The dead body buried in her garden isn’t quite what she had in mind, though.
Unable to resist her curiosity, she falls directly into a mess of trouble and runs head-first into the attractive detective inspector, Teo Herceg. She tries to balance her business with the investigation, but as the killer focuses on her, staying alive becomes trickier than advanced origami.
Will Motts survive the onslaught of murderously bad luck?
Can she solve the mystery before it all spins out of control and off a cliff?
Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters.

The ebook available on AMAZON for 99c .
If you’re a KU subscriber, please take a moment to check out the first two books in the series: “DEFYING RULES” and “TELL IT TO MY HEART”

Today’s Hook:

Noah tilted his head. “I feel as if I have or I am about to step into a minefield, but explain to me, she took a few dollars and then paid it back. Was she charged?”
Harrison shook his head. “Mum didn’t want to. She argued that Melody most likely had needed it and had worked hard for it.”
His brother cocked a brow.
“My thoughts exactly. Anyway, I’ll give the rest of the run a raincheck. I’d rather head over to Mum’s and check on the situation. If Mum let’s her stay in the little room in the attic again, I’ll make sure she pays some money this time.”
Logan choked back a chuckle.
“What?”
“You like her.”
“Bullshit.”
Logan’s chuckle turned into a laugh.
“You’re as crazy as Dad,” Harrison muttered with a shake of his head.
His cousin frowned. “How come?”
“Dad said something along those lines as well.”
