4.5 Stars

Sometimes I think I should just hold out and wait until the full trilogy is published so I can just sit and devour them all at once. But.... I can never wait and have to jump when they are released. I love that Ms Romig makes me think when I am reading, always trying to piece together the clues as the characters uncover them. There have been more questions than clues so far, Roman and Lucille are treading very lightly.

It is exhausting living in a world of royalty where everyone is in your back pocket and you always have to show a certain presence. It is quickly becoming understood that you don't know who you can trust within the walls. Finding some private time is also hard but Roman/Oliver and Lucille need to find a way to find it so they can sort through everything they know.

Will they be able to uncover the truths before something terrible happens? Will Roman be able to protect Lucille from the harms of the King and the Firm? Will they have time to sort through their feelings as well as all the other pieces.

That ending.... my heart can't take those kind of endings... and now I wait and wonder and talking myself into different things. Ugh! Okay time to go and rethink about what I just read.

Jump on the Aleatha train and you won't be disappointed.

Release Blitz & Review - THE SCORE by Kristen Proby


An all-new meet-cute sports romance from New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kristen Proby, featuring Sophie Montgomery!

The Score by Kristen Proby is now live!

I have millions of followers on social media, and it has absolutely nothing to do with my last name. It's because I'm good at what I do. I work hard, and it has paid off.

I'm not a trainer who only talks the talk, either. I walk the walk—or rather, I run the run. It was actually during one of those jogs through the park that I ran into him.

Of course, at the time, I didn't realize it was the Isaiah "Ike" Harrison, Seattle's hot new quarterback. All I knew was that I was suddenly pinned under some solid, sexy body, unable to breathe.

But even now, I keep running into Ike in the most unexpected places.
And he's doing everything in his power to convince me that he's not just a player—in any form of the word.
It's so much more than that.
But I've been there, done that. I have the mended broken heart to prove it and have no intention of doing it again.
Except the frustrating man is convincing, and my walls are quickly lowering—especially when I feel responsible for possibly upending his career.

Is letting him in a mistake? Or will it be the best thing I've ever done?

I love falling back into the Montgomery clan and I love that I always seem to remember parts of the original series when reading from this spin off series. It just feels like home, thanks Kristen.

Sophie has grown into a curvy, sexy, sassy, know what I want and don't care what anyone else thinks kind of woman and she is fabulous. Even though she is one of the oldest of all the cousins, she is very family oriented and likes to keep in touch with the others when she can. She has a fantastic job that she rocks and makes a very good living at, this job gives her some flexiblity and for that she is thankful.

Ike Harrison is doing what he love in a city that he has fallen in love with. As far as he is concerned there isn't much for him at home. Just and overbearing dad that thinks Ike should dot on him. His focus has always been on football and doing everything he can do to stay right where he is. Relationships haven't ever been a priority but when you don't have a good role model that can happen.

When Sophie and Ike run into each other for the first time it was a shock to them both. Unable to stop thinking about the other. Only to realize that they knew some of the same people. It is a quick spiral of attraction that steam rolls into so much more. It's not all fun and exciting though as they have to deal with outside infulences, family emotions and they do it standing strong beside each other. 

Ike has some adjusting to do with this big, get all up in your business family but for Sophie he is willing to do anything. We got us another swoon worthy alpha who can't get enough of the sassy heroine. Sigh!!!!

Release Blitz - SINFUL VOWS by Lilian Harris


Sinful Vows by Lilian Harris is now live! 

I never wanted a wife. No one is safe with me. No one is good enough for my daughter.
But if I want to rule over the wealthiest crime family in New York City, I only have two weeks to find one. 
When Elsie broke into my home, I saw an opportunity, so I forced her into a marriage she didn't want. 
No one crosses me, not even someone as beautiful as Elsie. She may fight me with that smart mouth, but she will obey me-or return to the hell she came from.
I told her she was mine for a year. Then she'd be free.
But the more I see them together, my daughter and my wife, the more she touches me like I'm worthy, the more I start to wonder, could she be mine?
But when war lands at our feet, when her life's in jeopardy, I realize I was right all along. 
No one is safe with a man like me. Least of all her.

Download today or read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

For Lilian, a love of writing began with a love of books. From Goosebumps to romance novels with sexy men on the cover, she loved them all. It's no surprise that at the age of eight she started writing poetry and lyrics, and hasn't stopped writing since.

She was born in Azerbaijan, and currently resides on Long Island, N.Y. with her husband, three kids, and a dog named Gatorade. Even though she has a law degree, she isn't practicing. When she isn't writing or reading, Lilian is baking or cooking up a storm. And once the kids are in bed, there's usually a glass of red in her hand. Can't just survive on coffee alone!

Cover Reveal - HAIL MARY by Kandi Steiner


Kandi Steiner has revealed the gorgeous cover for Hail Mary!

Releasing: February 15, 2023

Cover Design: Kandi Steiner

Photographer: Ren Saliba

Model: Anonymous

Leo F*cking Hernandez.

North Boston University’s star running back, notorious bachelor, and number one on my people I would murder if I could get away with it list.

And now?

He’s my new roommate.

I used to think I loved him.

But that was before I hated him.

He doesn’t remember who I am, or how he made my life miserable for years. And before I unknowingly moved across the street from him, I couldn’t have cared less. I was living my life despite him and what happened that summer, chasing my dream of becoming a tattoo artist.

“The Pit,” as the university so gracefully nicknamed the house he lives in with three other football players, has served as nothing more than a pain in my ass and a constant reminder of the boy who broke my heart. Watching him parade his one-night-stands in and out of it never helped, either.

But with rent this cheap and so close to the tattoo shop, I’ve learned to ignore him — no matter how he’s tried to get under my skin.

At least, until this summer. Because when a water and mold disaster leaves me with no choice but to vacate my house, I have nowhere to go. And Leo Hernandez offers me a deal I can’t refuse.

Live at The Pit with him and the guys, free of charge, until my landlord fixes this mess.

Ignoring him was easy when I lived across the street, but in the same house, with him shirtless half the time and watching me with his cocky grin and searing gaze? It’s impossible.

Still, I have to try. I have to push him away, even when he makes it infuriatingly difficult to do so.

He’s broken my heart once.

I won't let him do it again.

Release Blitz - HAVOC by Laramie Briscoe


Title: Havoc (The Moonshine Task Force: Special Edition), #3 

Author: Laramie Briscoe

Genre: Small Town Contemporary Romance 

Release Date: January 27, 2023 

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author, Laramie Briscoe, comes the special edition of a fan favorite series.

Nobody writes blue collar romance like Laramie Briscoe, and nowhere is it more apparent than in the Moonshine Task Force: Special Edition Series. This edition includes a never-before-released short story, as well as all the slices of life scenes and text messages I've written for this couple.

When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit. The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness. I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined. My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get. It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that's what I tell myself. I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

Letting Go at 40 by L.B. Dunbar is now live!

She didn't think it could ever happen again. Love that is. And it definitely shouldn't be happening with him. 

Anna Kulis has lost her husband. Their love was a perfect kind of love; a once in a lifetime experience. She never intended to fall for anyone again. Never expected to have this attraction stirring inside her. And she never thought her emotions would run wild for the one man she shouldn't be attracted to - her late husband's best friend.

Mason Becker has a secret. As a renowned ladies' man, he's been in love with his best friend's wife for twenty-five years. After his friend's untimely death, and a period of grief, Mason finds himself in a compromising position with the one woman he didn't think he'd ever have. And that night leads to complications - namely, a desire for more.

Letting go can be one of the hardest tasks for the heart. 
Opening up to a second chance at love can be even harder.

Behind the smokescreen lurks a manipulative emotionless monster.

And that monster might find out all my secrets, including the reason why I’m pretending to be a man.

He might also lure me to the point of no return.
