Released: May 9, 2016


He says she’s a nuisance. She thinks he’s a jerk. Together they might be the perfect match.

Riordan Faraday is about to reach his breaking point. He’s got art classes to teach, a needy mum to care for, and most importantly, a painting to finish. But without time or inspiration, he hasn’t been able to paint a thing and it’s driving him mad. So when a silly American girl shows up on his doorstep with a wild proposal, he shoots her down perhaps a bit more harshly than she deserves…but it’s for the best. He can’t afford any more distractions at the moment, especially not beautiful brown-eyed ones.

Samantha Meyer—Sam, to her friends—is on a mission to find her late grandmother’s necklace. The long-lost piece of jewelry is the only thing she has left of Gram and Sam is determined to see that dream fulfilled before she returns home to New Jersey and takes up the reins of the family business. But she wasn’t counting on a sexy, surly painter to stand in her way.

Blog Tour & Review: Return of the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon

Return of the Bad BoyReturn of the Bad Boy
Second Chance #4
By: Jessica Lemmon
Releasing April 26, 2016


He’s a mess…

Asher Knight has three constants in his life: music, beautiful women, and a bottle of Jack. He lives for the next gig, the next city, and dreams only of a life spent in front of an arena full of screaming fans. But Asher’s nomad ways come to a sudden stop when he learns he’s the father of a three-year-old from a past relationship and suddenly this rock star bad boy is forced to put down roots.

Only she can clean up

Gloria Shields is no one’s fool. Sure, the sexual chemistry between her and Asher has always been intense, but she’d never risk giving her heart to a man who has a perfect record for breaking them. Except the man desperate to make things right with his newfound son is nothing like the rock god she’s guarded her heart against for years. And it isn’t long before she starts to wonder if life with this bad boy might be the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

Forever//Grand Central

Sara Richardson brings us the conclusion to her Heart of the Rockies series in this stunning, heartwarming novella. 


If anyone had told Ruby James she’d be marrying the man of her dreams after starting over at the Walker Mountain Ranch, she’d have keeled over laughing, if not crying. Yet here she is: ready to walk down the aisle with her soul mate, Sawyer Hawkins-and make the adoption of their sweet foster daughter, Brooklyn, official. But just days before the event that will make their family complete, a miraculous little wrinkle appears in her plans . . .

Ruby’s already the most beautiful woman in the world to Sawyer, but she seems to be glowing even more than usual . . . and now he knows why. Sawyer couldn’t have wished for more. Soon enough he’ll have a new wife, a new daughter, and a new bundle of joy. But not everyone sees a happy future for him and Ruby. With a blizzard rolling in, Sawyer must help his family-to-be weather a different kind of storm-and clear the skies for an unforgettable Rocky Mountain wedding.

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado’s rugged mountains. She’s climbed to the top of a 14,000 foot peak at midnight, swum through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders. 

Eventually Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After a brief stint in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons.

Jenni Beth Beaumont left her broken heart behind when she took her dream job in Savannah.

As the two butt heads, old turmoil is brought to the surface and Cole and Jenni Beth will have to work through some painful memories and tough realities before they can set their pasts aside and have a second chance at their own happily ever after.

About the Author

The luxury of staying home when the weather turns nasty, of working in PJs and bare feet, and the fact that daydreaming is not only permissible but encouraged, are a few of the reasons middle school teacher Lynnette Austin gave up the classroom to write full-time. Lynnette grew up in Pennsylvania’s Alleghany Mountains, moved to Upstate New York, then to the Rockies in Wyoming. Presently she and her husband divide their time between Southwest Florida’s beaches and Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. A finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart Contest, PASIC’s Book of Your Heart Contest, and Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie Contest, she’s published five books as Lynnette Hallberg. She’s currently writing as Lynnette Austin. Having grown up in a small town, that’s where her heart takes her—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody…and all their business, for better or worse. Visit Lynnette at

Blog Tour & Review for Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis

Nobody But You by Jill ShalvisAbout NOBODY BUT YOU
When Jacob was injured in the war, it changed him for life. Now all he wants to do is come home to Cedar Ridge, settle in at his lakeside cabin and get some much-needed peace and quiet. But there’s no peace to be had when he finds a spitfire of a woman camping out on his property. Half the time he’s not sure whether he wants to spank her or kiss–or maybe both. He’s in a dark place and a dark mood, and here’s this wildly hot woman who is also funny and light and may be the balm be needs to soothe his aching soul.

Sophie Marren is pretty much penniless after leaving her abusive husband. She doesn’t have the money to pay rent or the slip fees for docking the boat where she’s been sleeping. She was getting along just perfectly until the good-looking, brooding, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy moves into the lake cabin that the slip belongs to. Sure he’s hot as the noon sun with those dark lens and even darker ‘tude, but god forbid she tie herself to another man who’s always telling her what to do. But the more she gets to know Jacob, the more she sees how willing he is to battle for her wounded heart…a battle she might just let him win.

The Tycoon’s Forced Bride by Jane Porter reviewed by Lisa

Title: The Tycoon’s Forced Bride
Author Jane Porter
Pages: ebook
Release date: Janaury 28th, 2016
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Source: Netgalley

I received an advanced reading copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange of an honest review. This is no way affects my opinion on the book or the content of my review.

This will probably be a short review as the story itself was fairly short.

What I liked was the fact that the premise was a little different that what I’m used to. The heroine has suffered through a horrific accident that has left her fragile and slowly healing with a substantial amount of memory loss and issues with short term memory as well. It was to the point that she doesn’t fully remember the man she loved (still loves) and her small son. An incident involving her son pushed her over the edge into making a decision where she gave them both up due to her being unfit to parent and be part of a relationship.

However, the hero kept watch on her from afar. He made sure she was taken care of without her knowing and without taking away her sense of independence. He stayed away for as long as possible until he felt she had had enough time to get better and work on herself. He wanted her back in his life and their son’s life.

I have to say that I did really like reading this story. The writing was good, the characters had depth to them and their story was able to be told in a short amount of time. I enjoyed the angst-y feel of it quite a bit.

My only small issue was probably the title. It is very misleading in that it doesn’t ring entirely true to the story. I would say that I did not get the vibe of anyone or anything being forced. A little reluctant maybe and having the need to be pushed slightly, but not forced. The title comes off a little too strong but I guess that it was necessary to grab the reader’s attention.

Tour & Review: Betting On the Wrong Brother by Cathryn Fox

Betting On The Wrong BrotherBetting on the Wrong Brother
A What Happens in Vegas Story
By: Cathryn Fox
Releasing February 8, 2016
Entangled Lovestruck

He may be at a romance readers’ convention, but a naked woman in the elevator is not what horror writer Ryan Wheeler expects. Now he can’t take his eyes off of her—and not just because he saw her naked, though her luscious curves certainly aren’t helping the matter. She’s beautiful, funny, snarky…and a complication he doesn’t need.

Running into her teen heartthrob while naked wasn’t exactly part of romance novelist Andi Palmer’s weekend plans. Worse, he doesn’t recognize her and gives her a fake name­. Years ago, he shot her down in the worst possible way, and now this? It’s time for a little down-and-dirty revenge.

Ryan’s more than a little turned on by this good girl who wants to be bad. But things aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re keeping from one another might just end this sexy little rendezvous before it ever begins….
