A pregnant young woman shows up at the Billodeaux ranch looking for Teddy, the handicapped adopted son of the family. Turns out Ella Sue Smalls is his half-sister looking for a place to stay until her baby is born. Good-hearted Teddy offers shelter at his very modest apartment. Though he will never be a member of the Sinners football team like his brothers, he is fiercely independent and earns his way as a freelance sports announcer and writer.

Ella has arrived at an awkward time for her brother; Teddy had just reconnected with a former cheerleader he had a crush on in high school. Injured in a tragic accident, Jessica Minvielle is hopeless and bitter about her life confined to a wheelchair. She reaches out to Teddy for help to live a full life again and salvage her career as a sports trainer. He is only too glad to show her what a man and a woman in wheelchairs can do. But, will the scheming Ella Sue come between them and ruin their chance at love?

 

Lisa Book Club Review – This is book 4 in the Sinner’s Legacy series. And it’s Teddy book . When his half- sister show up pregnant and looking for help Teddy offers her help. But in the mist of that Teddy falls for Jessica a friend from high school that has been hurt. This is a lovely  book with lots of heart with the whole Sinner family involved. You could read this as alone book but I think you would enjoy the whole Sinner series which is set in Louisiana with the first family of football. Lisa

Book 3 Buy Link

In the third book of Heather Heyford’s series, set in Oregon’s wine country, a returning war hero and his “friend with benefits” discover that some vintages only improve with time . . .
 
Uncorking the Truth
 
When the town of Clarkston, Oregon, welcomes Captain Sam Owens home from the service, Sophia “Red” McDonald is first in line. The sassy psychotherapist has known Sam since they were kids, and the grown-up Sam is darned near irresistible. With his abs of steel and those gorgeous hazel eyes, he could have any woman he wanted. Naturally, Red is thrilled when he takes her hand . . .

She’s a modern woman, happy to canoodle with the sexy soldier, no strings attached—until her heart changes the rules. Suddenly, after months of casual hookups, Red finds she wants more. She longs to possess Sam body and soul. But his warrior’s heart was wounded long before he joined the service. As a therapist, Red has ways of making him talk. Only if Sam opens up and spills his secrets can they finally have everything their hearts desire . . .

 

Lisa’s Tuesday Book Review – is this 3rd book in this Contemporary Romance series.  I missed book 1-2 and was able to pick up with the story and characters just fine. But I would definitely read the other books -so you get the full background of the story of Sam and Red. Both of this characters were great but Sam had some secrets he needed to work out. But Red is a capable female lead and a perfect match for head strong Sam. This book was a wonderful read and I strongly recommend it with a glass of wine.  Lisa

5 Ways to Support Your Local Library by Susan Mann

Sharing from Hobby Reads

Hobby Reads

Libraries are integral contributors to a vibrant, thriving community. And yet, in times of funding cutbacks, libraries are often at the top of the list of services to be trimmed. Additionally, in our information-glutted society, the need for at all libraries is called into question. In truth, it’s because of this glut of (oftentimes wrong) information that libraries and librarians are required more than ever. Given these realities, how can you support your local library?

  1. Use It

Libraries are more than books. Most offer audiobooks, DVDs, and CDs for check out, as well as access to online journal, reference, and newspaper databases. E-books and e-magazines are often available, too. Then there’s story time for little ones, literacy programming, interlibrary loan, reference help… The list goes on.

Fate brought us together, but the sins of my past threaten to rip us apart.

In a city ruled by corruption and powerful men, only the ruthless survive. And that’s just what I am. Like father, like son. The life I lead is riddled with black tie affairs and dark secrets.

A simple mistake destroyed a woman I knew nothing about. She was only a name and a beautiful face in a photograph. Her picture-perfect life was shattered, but I didn’t give a damn.

Or at least I thought I didn’t care, until she stumbled into me.
One look and I was tempted.
One taste and I was hooked.

It wasn’t supposed to turn into this. She’s a good girl from the upper east side, innocent and naive. She’s ashamed to be moving on so quickly.
Especially with a man like me. Someone who…
