Release Blitz: The Aristocrat by Penelope Ward

Title: The Aristocrat
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2021


From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

Review by Lisa Kane

Felicity Dunleavy is back in Narragansett, Rhode Island after graduating from college and working in Boston for a few years. She's twenty-four and is getting ready to head to law school. She's returned to stay with Mrs. Angelini at the house she's shared with her for years. It's quiet and familiar and home. 

When she first lays eyes on the hero, it's one of those off chance things that will forever be remembered with embarrassment. (and lust!) Not long after, Felicity formally meets Leo Covington and his obnoxious cousin, Sig. An invite to tea opens up a whole new path for Felicity, one that just might lead to the rabbit's hole. 

Leo and Sig are visiting from England. One last hurray before Leo must return home to reality. He is vague about it, but it seems that whatever his future holds, it is what is expected of him, not necessarily what he wished it might hold. Leo is more than a little interested in Felicity, the ginger haired beauty is mesmerizing him. But he is here for only a month and as much fun they are having getting to know each other, there is an expiration date looming. 

Theirs is no summer time fling, both Leo and Felicity develop deep feelings for each other, but there are so many obstacles. As the blurb suggests, five years go by and Felicity receives a letter that will change both their lives. That's as far as I can go with details, too much and it will spoil the plot. I will say that Sig deserves a story of his own. I want it to begin at the ending of The Aristocrat. 

If you have read any of Penelope Ward's books then you know to expect the other shoe to drop. The thump of your stomach, the "no way did I read that" moment. Don't read this book late at night, because you will want to read until the end and the lack of sleep will catch up with you. (learn from my experience!) 

There were a few scenes where I wished there had been more explanation, more insight into the whys and hows but it is what it is and I filled in the pieces with my own imagination. As all her epilogues are-this one has a great one and I got a little misty reading it.

Release Blitz: What Tears Us Down by AM Wilson

What Tears Us Down by A. M. Wilson is now live! 

Rhett Senova could charm a woman out of her panties and in the next breath, thank her mother for dinner.

Smooth doesn't even begin to cover his moves. But the hottest playboy in Arrow Creek wasn't always this way.

He had dreams of a one-woman future, and the cry of his firstborn brought him to tears.

He never thought his wife would cheat on him with her boss.

Each day is a feud over the dream home he had built for his ex and learning to raise his young son without the jaded lens now coloring his world.

Starting over in his thirties isn't on his agenda. Not now that he's raised impenetrable walls. His ex left the sour taste of infidelity in his mouth, and he's not sure he can trust anyone new.

That is until he meets a vision passing through town and nearly gets mauled by her she-demon dog.

Her sassy wit makes other women seem inadequate, along with those luscious curves and burgundy curls.

The fact she hides beneath her tough exterior that she might be in trouble sends up red flags he'd be smart not to ignore.

Using his charm to win over the pit bull is the easy part. The question is whether he wants to win over the guarded redhead too.

Review by Jen Skewes

I was so excited to be back in Arrow Creek and reading Rhett’s story.  I am a huge fan of AM Wilson’s books and once again she did not disappoint.  


Rhett was the guy who has been with his wife for more than 10 years, loves his son more than anything completely loyal. Until his wife cheating on hi with her boss.  For the past year he has been taking care of his sone and become a bit of a player/. He wants nothing more than one-night stands.  After what his wife has put him through and continuing to do he is done with trusting woman ad falling in love.  Until he meets Evie, the girl who changes everything.


Evie is new to town and has her own baggage.  Her current living situation is not ideal at all, but it’s only temporary until she gets back on her feet.  She is feisty, sassy and certainly independent. She meets Rhett one night and is not really sure what to make of this stranger who is trying to help her.  She too has trust issues, and when she quickly learns of his player status she isn’t sure if he truly wants to help her and het her in bed.  Rhett is. Vey protective person and when it comes to Evie he has this overwhelming feeling and need to protect her.  He is not exactly sure why at first, but he knows that not only is he interested in spending more time with her, he also wants to keep her safe.


Despite how Rhett has lived his life since his wife cheated, he truly is an amazing man.  He is loyal caring, sweet, sexy and loves his son.  His need to protect Evie melted my heart.  They had more in common with their current situation and with the trust issues it wasn’t easy to open up.  But as the two of them spent more and more time together they were able to peel back each other’s layers.   Evie was this stg and feisty woman who I loved!!!  She was in a tough spot, moving to a small town by herself, not knowing anyone.  And yet she never gave up.  


Rhett and Evie together will melt your heart.  Their relationship was not always unicorns and rainbows, but they has a wonderful connection, funny banter between them and I also think in a way a mutual respect for each other.  Rhett genuinely cared and wanted to keep her safe. They were perfect together.  


This truly was a beautiful story.   Ms. Wilson has once again captured me from start to finish.  This book will melt your heart, and also break it.  You will laugh, cry and fall in love with Rhett and Evie.  It was one of those books that I devoured and was sad when it was all over.  Loved it!!

Release Blitz: The Sinner by Emma Scott

The Sinner by Emma Scott is now live!

Shy, introverted Lucy Dennings lives a quiet little life in New York City, working for a nonprofit and keeping to herself. Every afternoon, she goes home to her empty apartment and Edgar, her houseplant, and every night, she loses herself in the pages of her beloved romance novels. Her lonely heart seeks solace in tales of passionate, enduring, all-consuming love, but more and more, Lucy feels she's not just reading for pleasure but searching for a lost piece of herself in the pages. As if she once touched something beautiful but it's been ripped away.

Until one day Lucy discovers a dead body in the alley behind her apartment. Even if it's too late, her first instinct is to help.

Her second is to run.

Because the dead body isn't so very dead, and suddenly, her little world isn't so little but one in which dreams feel like memories, "inner demons" actually lurk in dark alleys, and a beautiful creature of darkness with amber eyes and wings like night might hold the key to what her heart has been aching for...if she doesn't fall down the path of eternal damnation first.

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Emma Scott, comes an emotional paranormal love story of passion, sacrifice, and the soul-deep love of a lifetime...more than one

Release Blitz: King of the Court by RS Grey

R.S. Grey’s next standalone rom-com, King of the Court, is out now! Check it out and grab your copy today!

About King of the Court

We don’t get a lot of NBA superstars coming through little ol’ Pine Hill, Texas. That’s why everyone is all in a tizzy over the fact that the USA men’s Olympic basketball team will be training here of all places before this year’s Summer Games. With little else to talk about, rumors about the players have been spreading like wildfire, and there’s one man in the middle of it all holding a match.   Ben Castillo. NBA champion. Olympic gold medalist. Widely hailed ‘King of the Court’.   The morning he walks into my dingy diner, I have enough sense to keep my head down and go right on wiping tables, pouring coffee, and serving up short stacks. A man who looks like that—superstar or not—has only ever meant trouble, and more trouble is the last thing I need, what with taking care of Nan and scraping by on tips from truckers.   If anything, he seems drawn to my indifference. His steely gaze pierces me behind the counter. My knees nearly buckle under the weight of his attention. But while Mr. Pretty Boy is probably used to snagging city girls with a smile, this gal is country strong.   I won’t be some clichéd convenience for him on his way through town. So look over your choices carefully, Benny-boy. We serve up sides of hash browns here, not heartbreak.  

4.5 Stars

Review by Lisa Kane

I've read every book this author has written. And I've loved almost every one. King of the Court is no exception. 

Ben Castillo is the man-he has it all, basketball championships, tons of money, adoring fans. 

But he is going through a bitter divorce and he's closed off his heart. He's not even sure that his soon to be ex wife ever really had it. He's been chosen to represent the US in the Olympics and training is set to begin in Pine Hill, Tx. The coach has quite a bit of land there and it's remote enough to have somewhat of a private setting. 

Raelynn Birdie is drowing. She works early mornings at a diner making scant tips and the afternoons for a cleaning company. She grew up in Pine Hill, but she moved to California for college. She's literally a genius. She had a full scholarship in astro physics and is on track to making quite the name for herself. But then her grandmother Alzheimer's has progressed to the point where she needs care in a memory unit. She raised Raelynn and Raelynn will do everything she can to get her the best care. She moved back to Pine Hill. Unfortunately, that care costs a ton of money and just about every dime she makes goes to the private facility providing her Nan's care. 

Ben and Raelynn have their first encounter at a gas station where Ben and Anthony, one of his teammates, are lost trying to find the training camp. Raelynn helps them out. Let's just say she makes quite the impression on Ben. When he sees her at the diner she works at, he's not about to let his chance at getting to know her slip past him. She's attracted to him, but he's only in town for a few weeks and she has enough problems without becoming a star basketball's play thing. 

Their relationship may have started out as a slow burn, but it heats up pretty fast. They have some major complications and are separated for some time. But fate placed these two together and isn't about to let them stay separated for long. 

I loved King of the Court! Both the main characters are strong and determined and just good people. There are so many secondary characters, I kept thinking of stories about them to make this story part of a series. (hint hint!)

Release Blast: The Trouble With #9 by Piper Rayne

Release Date: August 10


One word that comes to mind when someone talks about me. I like to think of it as protection, watching out for the ones I love. But now I’m spending more time in the penalty box than on the ice and the team owner isn’t happy.


Finding myself across the room from the hot therapist I kissed on New Year’s Eve only makes me push my problems down further. I want couch time with her but not the kind she’s used to.


I decide to lie to her just to finish off my therapy so I can do what I really want—date her—even if she says she doesn’t date hockey players. Just when my therapy sessions are up and I’ve made some headway with Paisley, it’s my parents who throw another wrench in my plans. 


If I abide by my parent’s wishes to marry the one they’ve chosen, I’ll lose Paisley forever. But if I go against my parents, I’m failing my deceased best friend all over again.

4 Stars

Review by Jen Skewes

Maksim is the enforcer for the Florida Fury hockey team.  He takes his job to heart, protecting his payers on the ice.  But his aggressiveness on the ice has put him in the penalty box one too many times.  and being in the box,  as often as he is, is hitting their game.  The owner of the team wants all players to see the team therapist, but Maksim refuses.  The coach is on his back about going as is the owner.  They want the therapist to get to the bottom of why he has been so aggressive on the ice, more so than usual.  Maksim knows his issues and he knows why it it important to protect his teammates.  He doesn't need a therapist to tell him why.  But not going could cost him his career with the Fury.  

Paisley is the team therapist.  Her and Maksim shared a kiss on New Years Eve.  But now he is her patient and has a job to do.  So there is no way she can cross the line with him.  No matter how hard Maksim makes it to resist.  Maksim has no intentions of opening up to her in their sessions. Instead he flirts with her and hopes that they can continue what was started with that kiss.  Neither one of them can deny the chemistry, but both their jobs could be at stake if they become more.  

I loved Maksim and while he was very aggressive on the ice, he was a good guy who was very protective of those he loved.  He was sweet and sexy and knew how to make Paisley melt.  She was more reserved than Maksim but that is what make them click. She didn't take crap from him and had no problems speaking her mind.  But together these two were perfect.  I loved how he wood her and wanted to prove to her that he wanted more than just her in his bed.  Another job well done but this fantastic writing duo.
